Nobody gets the joke. How disappointing.

I can honestly say it's got nothing worth going out and buying the console. Unless you really like racing games.

That being said, I'll try and keep the "console war" BS to a minimum.

But... but... this is the interwebs! Mindless flaming over insignificant points is what it's all about! :lol:

I don't know about nothing worth getting the console for - ever even play Soul Calibur?

I guess this is what really divides the console scene - the kinds of games that people play. I can't stand playing FPS games on consoles, drives me up a friggin wall (WHERE'S MY , AND . FOR STRAFE!!!) But, there are so many people that love Halo for the xbox, which I absolutely cannot stand at ALL. I know people that say that Metroid Prime for the Wii is the best Metroid evah, and I usually slap them over the head for it.

The driving force for me for buying new consoles has been following the Soul Calibur and Gran Turismo games - which have been Playstation games (save for the DC.) I had Soul Calibur for the Dreamcast, and then they quit developing for the system, and went for the PS2. After playing a fighting game on a Wii, I wished for a large-calibur bullet to enter my brain at a high rate of speed.

The Wipeout, Gran Turismo, and Tokyo Extreme Racer games are also a reason why I have no plans to leave Sony for the immediate future - those racing games are among those I consider ones I cannot live without, and Wipeout for the PS3 looks like it's going to be amazing. (Haven't followed the scene enough to know if they're working on a TER for the PS3 or not. I can't justify buying a PS3 for a couple more years until they finally drop below the $300 mark.)

Besides, the Wii is just too freakin cutesy. There is precisely one game that I can think of that breaks that image for me, and I can't even remember what it was called. I remember it was black-and-white. I'm sure that there are others, but I haven't heard of any.
I have the special edition mortal combat vs. dc. It's unopened.
I got the regular one from 'santa'
It's awesome/
How's soul calibur?

It's fantastic. Fighting as The Apprentice, Yoda, and Darth Vader is freaking awesome. The graphics are beyond what I expected, and the gameplay is just like the previous games - something I thought would be lost, after playing Tekken for the PS3 (hated it, but then, Soul Calibur has kind of ruined me for other fighting games.)

Now I just need to get a PS3 and quit making my friends carry theirs over to my house.

Anyone up for a trade? My soul's up for grabs.

Hell, keep it. It's got 80% of the good games that the Xbox 360 does but won't break, plus PS3 exclusives many of which are awesome.

As for the Wii, yeah, that's the REAL paperweight/doorstop!

Sell the PS3 for 3 times as much as for what you got it for. Making profits!

Wow. I hope the scammer spent the money already on something stupid so now he would owe $150 to his own bank. That would be a well-deserved surprise for him :wink:

It's not an exclusive for Sony though.. It's been on every console for the past 2 or 3 generations, at least once.

Anyways....

I think the ps3 has definitely gotten 1000x better than from launch. (Sans the removal of backward compatibility :facepalm: ) It's definitely got some great exclusives now, and if I'm lucky, I'll be getting one from a friend soon.

Speaking of exclusives, I think that is really all a console is worth when you look at them side by side. You can say stuff like, "The 360 has a huge game library", (which it does) but many of those games are also available on the ps3, and a few on Wii. I'm no fanboy of anything really, so I can't fight for one console, but I think the Wii needs waay more hardcore games (and I was a supporter of it when it first came out too) and the ps3 just needs, I guess you could say publicity? People still think that it has no good games, meanwhile it does. They need to show people that.

PS3 needs price-drop
360 needs to stop Project Natal (and that creepy game where you interact with a little boy)
Wii needs more hardcore games
Blaze needs to learn the internet

PS3 is a powerhouse, hardware-wise. They need their higher price because they make the 360 and Wii look like scrawny weaklings in terms of ability.
360 DOES need to stop this ridiculous Natal thing. WE GET IT, SONY/MICROSOFT/NINTENDO. YOU ALL LOVE STEALING EACHOTHER'S IDEAS. CUT IT OUT.
Wii needs to be installed in gyms and training areas, since it's more a piece of gym equipment than an actual gaming console.

Fix'd. This is why you won't be getting a price cut for a while. At least it's better than at launch where they lost about $200 with each console they sold, even at $600 each. What Sony really needs to do in the meantime is get the word out that the PS3 is well worth the $400 people would be spending on one and back it up with solid proof - the exclusives, for example.

- Yes, Sony needs to make the cheaper to offset the fact that there isn't any killer exclusives.
- 360 is the best value for the hardcore gamer currently - let M$ screw around and steal ideas.
- Agreed.
