quote: With call of duty 4, assasins creed, metal gear solid 4, grand theft auto 4, force unleashed,
quote: Save MGS4, those are all available on the cheaper 360.
quote: Thats something that gets implied alot, that if it's not an exclusive it doesn't count or something, but it doesn't change the fact that it is a good game that is available on the ps3.
quote: Price: Sony needs to offer value, even at 399 it isn't enough. Sure sales will pop a bit 50% maybe, but that isn't nearly enough to catch the 360 or even come close to catching the wii.
quote: HD: The HD war is far from over. Its a toss up who will suck losses longer to continue the war; Sony / Toshiba.
quote: HD-DVD is in the position of being the technically inferior format with less storage, and hence shorter running time, yet some think it is the holy grail.
quote: Heavenly Sword would brick a 360.
quote: I disagree. PS3 is the most popular Blu-ray player out there. Serious A/V people are buying them only as a Blu-Ray player. This is going to add more adopters, which is a good idea from Sony's standpoint.
quote: Gamers, who are willing to to fork over nearly a grand to rice up their PCs, if but only to play the latest and greatest (cough*Crisis*cough) shouldn't have a problem paying an extra $100 for the gamer-friendly version. I'm no Sony fan boy, but frankly, that's a damn good price for this piece of hardware.
quote: And that's not even getting into the fact that anybody who has a library of PS1/2 games probably already has a PS2.
quote: I can't justify paying $500 for one piece of hardware-a GPU. That, IMO, is the height of irrationality.
quote: Right, and the rest of your setup costs how much?
quote: A 9700 Pro could play every game that came out for at least 4 years.
quote: PC gamers don't require the best hardware. Most of my computers have been midrange with a good graphics card, not the best.
quote: overclocked the sh*t out of the E4300 you just bought
quote: In an age where consoles cost 500+ dollars, BC just doesn't make sense. MS caught onto this, and offered crappy software BC from the beginning, yet i rarely hear anyone complaining about not being able to play old xbox games.
quote: 1) The Xbox doesn't have near the library of titles as the PS2.
quote: 2) Quality PS2 titles are still being released, so some people would like to play them and not need a 2nd machine to do so. The original Xbox was pretty much gone after the 360 came out.
quote: 3) The 360's backwards compatibility isn't that horrible. The majority of the Xbox games people want to play on the 360 have a BC profile.
quote: There is no technical reason to not have PS1 games on the PS5.
quote: Sure their are, software emulation is NEVER 100% effective. It's not as though software is written for emulation that works for all games. Just think about emulators for the ps1/ps2 for PC. 50% or more of the games out there will not work.
quote: In the end, yes, I can complain because it's my money.
quote: I really don't see any other way sony could have dropped their price without taking a major hit. removing the BD player is not an option either, as upcoming games do require the extra space(UT3), and sony would have to release two versions of each game, one on DVD the other on BD, its just not feasible.
