    Sony still has a lot of ground to cover. 8 million PS3s, 17 million Xbox 360s, 20 million Wiis. And that's not even taking into account how many more game sales both Microsoft and Nintendo have. http://nexgenwars.com/

    No doubt they have alot of ground to cover in total units sold. But, the rate of xbox sales is dropping while PS3 is increasing. Its only a matter of time. In 2008 there is a plethora of PS3 titles coming out and it seems XBOX has run out of exclusive hits. MS cant ride the hype of halo forever.

    Later this year, we will hit year 3 of the BEGINNING of THIS generation's platform gaming. For those who think that PS3 is gonna make a serious stride within the next two years (or when ever), in terms of platform sales, I don't see where your logic is at. I'm pretty sure the people that wanted a platform from this generation of gaming, have already gotten their system(s) at this point. And from now on, the only major movements in terms of platform sales, are only gonna take place around Holiday shopping and platform price breaks.

    The PS3 is probably is the best system to get at this point, in terms of value. However, the demand for platform gaming has already reached its peak, and its only down hill from here on out.

    With all that said, none of this includes the Nintendo Wii, that think is in its own league at this point.


    P.S. I'm very satisfied with my 360. It's nice to know they throw in a 3 year warranty now with all the new units.

    Cant wait for GTA4, its the main reason why I bought the frickin system!

    I only own a Wii and PS2 so I am biased, but what the Wii lacks in raw power it makes up for with play control and innovation. Some of it may sound gimmicky, but the games they put out continue to be among the best, Zelda will always be my favorite, the new Mario Galaxy with its whole gravity concept is fun, Super Smash Bros. Brawl is going to be amazing though, I cannot wait. I still play the Game Cube verison often.

    8 days til it's out.

    key word there. you know why they throw that in "now"? because so many of them are breaking. Also, I just bought my PS3 last week. I also know 2 other people that bought one and 1 that's gonna be getting one in the next few days. Yeah, that's a total 4 proplr, but that's just people i know. i think they'll be selling systems for a while still. at a good rate.

    It's going to be interesting to watch play out. Every generation of console wars ends up being surprising somehow: 16-bit brought Sega suddenly out-cooling Nintendo; 32 had Sony roll in out of nowhere (Saturn was 32-bit, was Playstation 1? Yeah, right? Did Nintendo have a 32-bit entry? Virtual Boy? Ha) and take over; 64-bit killed Sega somehow, turned Nintendo into the kids' system, and made Playstation the dominant (wait, now things are confused--was Playstation 1 32 or 64 bit? It must have been 64, right? WTF, my memory for this shit is gone); then Nintendo put out a weird cube, Sony did the exact same system but beefier and with analog sticks, and Microsoft somehow became a contender despite THE MOST ANNOYING CONTROLS EVER IN ANY GAMING SYSTEM I'VE EVER ENCOUNTERED.

    Based on history, comebacks as big as the one Sony has to make are unlikely. Being beaten to the punch isn't always a kiss of death, but being beaten by 2 years and 3 times the number of consoles sold is some rough shit. Especially if Microsoft and Nintendo just keep dropping their prices when PS3s get somewhat more affordable. At this point they can afford to take near losses on the console sales just to guarantee increased game sales and the percentages taken from them.

    From what I have read and remember, it was the super nintendo that slowly killed Sega but then the 64 just put it out of its misery (with big help from RARE). Sega had too much infighting between Japan and America. And, instead of rolling out a next gen console to fight the SNES they just started adding all these ridiculous add ons that still couldn't compete with SNES. I thought the PS1 came out the same time as gamecube, or was it N64?

    and Microsoft somehow became a contender despite THE MOST ANNOYING CONTROLS EVER IN ANY GAMING SYSTEM I'VE EVER ENCOUNTERED.
    Are you talking about the first gen xbox controller? The Big Beast? Fuck that thing sucked.

    I will agree that that history is not on Sony's side. But, all we really have for history is last generation's console war. And, you could make the case one way or the other but I think the true test of a console's merit is: will people still be playing it after the next gen? In 2010 or whenever the next gen consoles come out will people ditch their 360 for the new one? Will people still be picking up PS3's instead of PS4's? I think the answer to all is yes.

    Plus, Blu-Ray? I mean, thats bigger for Sony than Halo is to MS.

    Nah dude, Genesis went up against SNES. That's when Sega was doing it's best. But they did have a series of failed add-ons like the Sega CD thing (although it had some sweet games) and their 32-bit upconverter thing whatever that was called. But it wasn't until the Saturn round against Playstation and... WTF was Nintendo doing? Did they just put out N64 like a year later than Saturn and Playstation, and then Sega had the Dreamcast out shortly thereafter? But wait, that doesn't work, because then when did Playstation 2 drop relative to Dreamcast and N64? Or did Playstation 1 go up against them? No, no, Playstation and Saturn definitely competed. Did Sony just ride its wave of sales through the Dreamcast threat and then drop PS2 later in the round? I guess so.

    Are you talking about the first gen xbox controller? The Big Beast? Fuck that thing sucked..
    I hate all Xbox controls period. Fuck those assholes for trying to make me learn to use both thumbs as directional controls. I was raised on Nintendo you cocksuckers.

    I'm not sure blu-ray is gonna play that big of a factor. At the end of the day, it's all about the games period. Sony needs to unleash a fucking TIDAL WAVE of first-class games, and they need their versions of multi-console releases to stand over Xbox's really, really strongly.

    PS1 was 32 bit, and Saturn (which I still have) was 32 bit. Sega didn't have a 64 bit system. The dreamcast was 128bit (same as PS2). Nintendo 64 was the only major 64 bit system.

    Playstation competed shortly against Saturn and won (saturn died off)...the 64 came out, and the PS1 and N64 competed. Then in 1999, the Dreamcast came out, then a year later the PS2 came out (2000). Then after that, the Gamecube came out, which ended Nintendo's 64 bit era. Then Microsoft introduced their Xbox in 2001.

    is God of War a sony exclusive? The original God of War is one of my favorite games ever. I sadly never got to play the second one, as I traded my ps2 for my friends 360 right as it was coming out.

    I really, really want GOW on xbox

    With probably 20+ games, unfortunatley since probably 1990-91 the 1st player controller always goes all the way left, so only 2 player games work. Cabbage patch kids was the shit.

    Colecovision, it was made by the Conneticuit Leather Company (Coleco) the same people who made cabbage patch kids I believe..... Lots of the games were made by companies like Nintendo, and Sega... It was a rival to the Atari (5200?)... For a bit they even sold an adapter that would allow atari games to be played on it. It was pre-nes/master system...
