Hello! Mi first post here... (my english isn't pro level, so don`t mock me with it plz)
It's a bit sad why I'm posting here.
Diomedes, I know you from other forums. I these forums you are a complete fanboy, always defending your PS3...
So please, stop calling fanboys to the people who thinks different than you. Look at your opinions before calling fanboy to the rest of us.
As it is my firt post, i'll present myself. I have a PS2, DS, PSP, PC and a Wii for gaming. I love'em all (even PSP, wich has not many games I really like, 3 or 4, but it's worth the prize with it's additional media features).
My point of view is that sony is a bit too much prepotent. I think they would "win" this console "war" but only in the long term, not in a few years. However, the truth is they are not doing so well now. The other companies had done well is job this time. In any case, I think that sony's presidents are too confident and too prepotent. They donÂ´t treat us well, and are fond of it.
They could be like nintento, in majority they do their job, and don't give a shit of what are the other companies doing. They do not enter in this retorical war (Besides, I think Wii and PS3&X360 do not fight for the same people, sometimes one may steal clients from one to another, but my mother, who loves fishing in wii play, wonÂ´t like resistance, you know. Neither I).
About the wiimote... well, maybe your wiis (yes, those who you don't have) burn you batteries or something, but my wiimotes last nearly 20 - 25 hours (wii play and wii sports), with vibration and speaker both activated. For the one who needed 4 battery chargers, well, no comments, I have one for my wii, mouse, keyboard and so on... and I donÂ´t miss another. Maybe you are so focused in thinking tha PS3 is cheap that can`t see that.
Wiimote is not a thechnological revolution, it canÂ´t be, because wii won't be so cheap (however, it hurts 50â‚¬ for a wiimote... at least we have wii play for the first of 'em... and 20â‚¬ for the nunchuck). Accelerometers we're reserched long before, and are not so complex (I've studied the in my career and I are not bed wetters xD). The thing is that nintendo has perfectionated them so much that work really well (However, you still can "lie" or "cheat the wiimote"). You know, a F22 has better accelerometers... but are not so cheap xD.
The thing about the wiimote and the nunchuck is programmers are stick to them, so they have to do games with it in mind. This will boost orginality... In PS3 the will stick to the same games (at least is what are they doing know...), and won`t take so much profit of the motion sensing (wich is, as far as I concerned, much worse than the wii, at least is what programmers say in magazines like "EDGE". I don't own a PS3, and I'm european, so I canÂ´t prove this by myself, but EDGE doen't lie too often you know). In addition, it works well with IR. So, technologically speaking, is not better than sixaxis, the difference is implementation and sinergy with the system (sixaxis and ps3 don't know about this). The "crap speaker"... well, maybe it's crap (something like a game boy sepaker) but has sinergy with the rest of the systems, and it's more inmersive, at least for ME (so if you don`t like it, turn it off).
Well, that's all I wanted to say... jesus, It's kinda hard to write english when you ar not accostumed to... uff
EDIT: Maybe in the future I'll buy the X or PS3... I think they are pretty good systems. In fact, if it weren't for sony himself, I'd like more the PS3...
