Thread: THE GAMING HARDWARE THREAD: PS4 - WII U - XBone - PS3 - 360 - WII

    Um, is that because of the film or because of the format???? Y0u also can't say Spiderman or Ratatouille are not selling more because they've had less time on the market. They prolly won't catch Transformers, but that is besides the point, if Transformers was exclusive to Blu ray, guess what - it still would've been the best selling HD title thus far. Not because it's on HD-DVD.
    I just typed this really long response to this post, where-in I explained how you're obviously not comprehending the text that I'm making appear on your screen, but then this awesome message board logged me out as it always does every two minutes, and so the whole thing was lost. Fuck technology. Fuck BluRay and HD-DVD.
    Who's coding this message board anyway?

    Anyway, this is worth reading:
    Customers aren't the only ones frustrated with the high-definition format wars—Sony CEO Howard Stringer is reaching the end of his rope as well. Blu-ray, which is backed by Sony, was doing well up until recently and winning the war based on merits, Stringer said at an event in New York. That is, up until movie studio Paramount decided to "change sides" and go exclusively HD DVD in August. Things have apparently become more difficult since then, and the high-profile CEO is showing signs of wear.


    "It's a difficult fight," Stringer was quoted saying by the Associated Press, going so far as to describe the situation as a "stalemate." He candidly indicated that the war mostly came down to bragging rights over who was winning, and said that the two camps could have collaborated better in the past to develop one format. Stringer even said that he wished he could go back in time to make that possible—is that the smell of regret floating in the air?
    Indeed, without some sort of compromise, it doesn't appear as if the battle will be over any time soon. The two sides have been going back and forth in the media as to who has been "winning" at any given time, with Sony taking a lead in overall player sales, but HD DVD winning out when it comes to standalone players (most of Blu-ray's players come as part of the PS3 console). The rest of the market has been forced to take sides in many cases too, with Blockbuster and Target giving points to the Blu-ray camp while HD DVD remains more popular among European movie studios. The stream of news about little victories between the two is nearly endless—and "little" they are, as the market is still so small that just the changing of the wind can tip the scales in either direction.
    Market research firm Forrester Research recently revised its stance on the Blu-ray versus HD DVD deadlock, saying that it was sure to continue well into 2009, if not longer. As a consumer, that news is just plain dreadful, and for a manufacturer with hands in the game, probably even worse. A large majority of consumers are still hesitant to buy players for either format. And with customers not spending money, neither camp will come out on top. Stringer appears to have finally come to that realization—will Toshiba hear his cries and come a-knockin'? We'd love to be wrong on this one, but we just don't see it happening now. It's just too late.

    Totally do that. Halo is seriously the best online game ever devised. I get motion sickness from first person shooters and I have played Halo 2 for 8 hours straight before.

    I currently have a HD DVD player, but I may have to purchase a Blu Ray player if the prices get lower this holiday season. However, I still refuse to purchase any HD titles that I already own on standard definition.

    Some more fuel for the fire:

    So I played Super Mario Galaxy... wowowowowowowowowowoowowow.

    I was expecting it to be fun, but after the let down known as Super Mario Sunshine, I wasn't expecting much. Even though the reviews said it was amazing. I was blown away. The controls are flawless and easy to get used to. As is the gravity changes and camera angles. I got to the second observatory, but I had to take it back. If I didn't there is NO WAY I would have finished my paper due Monday. I guess I will just have to wait until Christmas. My only complaint, so far, its sooooooo easy. As I said, I only got to the second terrace, but I hope it gets more challenging. If not, oh well. The 9.8/10 it got is well deserved.

    I've spent about 2 hours with Uncharted: Drake's Fortune on the PS3.

    (I've been in Ann Arbor for the game)

    Its pretty good - A little slow to start, but if you like the whole Indiana Jones / Tomb Raider thing - this is right up your alley - controlls are fluid and the cutaways and voice acting is superb.

    Is it THE game for the PS3? Prolly not, it is worth owning though.

    I love my PS3. I just bought the blu-ray Close Encounters of the Third Kind Collector's Edition. Woo!

    I have Warhawk on that beast and it never gets boring. People keep hating on the PS3, but there is a lot of good stuff coming out for it. It sucks that everything keeps getting delayed, but I'm excited for next year. With things like GTA4 (granted it will be more fun on the 360), LittleBigPlanet (which will dominate everything), The Agency, Unreal Tournament (which will also hit 360, but not till a while later) and even Home; it looks fun, and it's free. That Afrika thing looks interesting too... Whatever it is... I'm not saying PS3 is better than 360, or 360 is better than PS3. I'm just saying I really enjoy my PS3, and its going to get a whole lot more enjoyable next year.

    I bought Close Encounters on Blu Ray as well - very awesome!

    I keep forgetting about Little Big Planet. An original exclusive title ala Parappa, that will definitely rule everyone and their sparetime from what I've seen and read.

    You are right on. That's why I hate the PS3 bashing, most of it comes from fanboys, or people who simply don't own one. I too enjoy my PS3, do I enjoy it as much as the 360?... maybe, maybe not, it just depends. After all, my fave game is 360's Bioshock, but Ratchet and Clank for the PS3 is right behind it. Halo 3 is fun, but way over-rated, esp as a campaign. Mario Galaxy is fantastic fun, worth tracking down a Wii... just barely. Heavenly Sword and Uncharted (just started it) are a little over-hyped, from what I can tell you, but so far, so good.

    If you look at the next year or so, there are definitely more reasons to be excited about owning PS3 than either the Wii or 360. Sony has fumbled the launch of their system badly, but, finally, the exclusives (that are good) are going to start to trickle in. Nintendo and MS have their share, but just not as many when you look forward in 2008/09. When 360 gets Gears of War 2... look out, yowza that thing will rule. Oh yeah, Killzone 2 and God of War 3 on PS3 - holy crap Batman! It's good to be a gamer in 08.

    Going to get back to Drake and his fortune now.

    You'll win with either of those systems. The only thing I will say is this:

    1. If you want to watch High Def movies at all, then get the get a PS3
    2. If you like Japan-flavored role playing games, then get a PS3
    3. If you love the Metal Gear series - get a PS3
    4. If you lean more to online play for shooters - get a 360
    5. If you want a bigger library right out of the gate, - get a 360
    6. If Halo is something you love - obviously get a 360
    7. If you like Mario and sku toward younger themed games - get a Wii
    8. If you want to act like you are getting exercise while playing - get a Wii
    9. If you want to play your mom in something - get a Wii

    Dude... get a Wii. It is so much fun. After you play Twilight Princess and Mario Galaxy, there is no way you wont like it. Not to mention other fun games such as Wario Ware, Rayman Raving Rabbids, Metroid and the plethora of other games out.
    Also, Super Smash Bros Brawl comes out Febuary 10th. Be ready.

    I know. Super stoked about SSBB. But I think that PS3 is going to have more games I like such as GTA4, Tiger Woods, and what not.

    C DUB YA, have you heard any word on when LittleBigPlanet's demo comes out on the Playstation Network? I think it is supposed to come out very soon.

    Add me to your friends. I go by as MojaveTent. I am very proud of that name.
