I still like the fact Epic prefers OpenGL over Direct X.

360-Sales will decline below ps3 sales in 3 months????????????????

WHAT when HAlO 3 comes out? that shows how much you kwon about video games dude. when Gears of War was released, the Xbox 360 outsold the Wii and PS3 in their own launch windows. and still outsld them over Christmas.



The Xbox 360 did beat the PS3 in its own launch window, yes.

But uh, you should probably check the charts before you make these claims. Since the Wii launch, it has had but a single week of fewer sales than the Xbox 360, in early December.



PS3: 5.51m/51w, avg 108,039/w (up 239)
360: 12.93m/102w, avg 126,764/w (up 625), leads PS3 by 7.42m (up 70k), avg lead 18,725/w (up 386)
Wii: 13.52m/51w, avg 265,098/w (dn 1,102), leads PS3 by 8.01m (up 90k), avg lead 157,059/w (dn 1,341)

If 360 sales stabilize, PS3 sales increases needed to pass 360 by...
01/08: (008w) +875.8%, 04/08: (021w) +344.4%, 07/08: (034w) +219.3%, 10/08: (047w) +163.5%
01/09: (060w) +131.8%, 04/09: (073w) +111.4%, 07/09: (085w) +098.1%, 10/09: (099w) +086.7%
If Wii sales stabilize, PS3 sales increases needed to pass Wii by...
01/08: (008w) +1072.%, 04/08: (021w) +498.4%, 07/08: (034w) +363.4%, 10/08: (047w) +303.1%
01/09: (060w) +269.0%, 04/09: (073w) +246.9%, 07/09: (085w) +232.6%, 10/09: (099w) +220.3%
If PS2 sales freeze, Wii sales increases needed to pass PS2 (as of Mar07, 108.4m) by...
2008: (008w) +4373.8%, 2009: (060w) +0496.5%, 2010: (112w) +0219.6%, 2011: (165w) +0116.9%
2012: (217w) +0064.9%, 2013: (269w) +0033.1%, 2014: (321w) +0011.5%, 2015: (376w) -0004.8%
At +0% it will pass it in 358w, the week ending September 19th, 2014, at an age of 409w (7y44w).
Current age of PS2: 7y37w.

 I don't know about that, the PS3 homepage on the browser runs kind of slow when it goes in motion.

Anyway, I had a link to that large picture in a different thread, lol. 

I believe that Unreal Engines favor OpenGL, which I think is great for Sony since they have an Nvidia GPU and just made that deal to get the engine optomized for the PS3 (kind of like ATI signing with Valve to make the Source Engine run better on ATI cards). 

I don't know a whole lot about programming and hardware stuff, but that'd be awesome if the RSX can indeed support that stuff and I can't wait to see what the 360, PC, and PS3 can output over the course of the next couple of years.

Now comparing any game to Gears or Unreal Tournament 3 will be a total joke. Epic Games is a developer that is at Polyfony Digital and Square Enix's level of graphical power house. Gears, and UT3 are prequals to the 360's 4th generation of games honestly. Halo 3 will not look better then Gears or Unreal Tournament 3 due to this fact. Bungie will never be as good of a developer as Epic is.


You betcha.

Those shots of H3 are just as impressive as anything Gears has to offer. In fact, I'd say they look better because of the colorful nature of H3 and Bungie's willingness to tackle a jungle environment, a very difficult thing to render well. It takes a lot less effort to render concrete and rubble than it does vegetation while making it all look realistic.

People have to stop judging Halo by its multiplayer beta one of these days and remember that Bungie made some of the best-looking Xbox games ever produced. They're a big developer with a long track record of good-looking games, just like Epic. Maybe not as diverse as Epic, but just as talented.

You can get into a big argument about whether Halo looks worse than UT3 but at that point, we're getting down to personal preferences. I am personally sick and tired of the grey, brown, and black in Epic games because it leads me to believe that they're sacrificing environments for the sake of bloom and rim lighting. I respect Bungie for taking an art direction that isn't popular right now and doing a damned good job with it.
