srry i forgot to do the Q/A
Is the 360 a success? Yes
Did it succeed financially? Yes
Did it live up to Microsoft's expectations? Yes
DId it provide the type of games that justified its existence? No it only had 1 for me
Is the 360 the underdog console that overcame all odds to become a hit or is the 360 the console that had all of the potential to be king, only to be overtaken in sales and games by its rivals? No on both accounts
Consider the 360's competition. Consider the 360's legacy. Consider the 360's obstacles. Consider the 360's contributions. Consider all of this and tell me if Microsoft and the gaming world are better off with the 360 on the market.
well when you put it like that, everything made in the 7th gen. was crap. i hope the 8th gen. is better.
Why do you say that? All three consoles succeeded in some way over its competition (sales, power, games, graphics), all consoles lived up to their legacy in some form or another, all three overcame their obstacles, and all three contributed something major. But did all of them overcome their shortcomings? If anything, I'd say the 7th gen is the first gen where every console was awesome in its own way.
the real question is, was there a need for all these random PS3v360 threads! that's not a real question from me though. did you finish VC yet! that's not a real question either.
all 3 failed me, so in my eyes they all failed regardless of what they did good this is the best gen. for consoles so far, but it's not the best ever. this war only makes it worse. if it weren't for those other threads, i might have a different more positive opionion. but for now, neither console maker has done enough good to outweigh the bad.
You know what? I'm gonna take that bullet out of your gun. I've been on VGChartz for like 4 hours today but I'm going to take this excess laziness and channel it into beating Valkyria Chronicles TODAY. I mean right now, too!
As for the PS3 vs 360 threads, the PS3 has reached a bit of a milestone and shaken up the natural order of things. It's always been Wii>360>PS3 in sales around here. Everything else has been opinion but this was the one thing that let many of us sleep at night. Now, the whole world is changing and many of us are scared. When we are scared, we lash out. Hence, the threads.
