    I have not heard about the demo. G4 previewed it the other night and basically said it's awesome, over and over and over.

    Not that I care - because I actually have Assassins on 360, but... this is from that post at gametrailers...


    EDIT : Reposting this and adding one more comment right here to give you an idea these guys are biased. Also check the part in the video near the end where they zoom in on Altair's master's eyes. The master guy has a blind bum eye. It's just greyed out BY DESIGN. Well GT makes it so the greyed out eye is on the PS3 side and then zooms all the way in on his eyes for a 300% zoom comparison. And of course noobs will look at it and say hey look, in the PS3 version, the dude has no textures on his eyes. Look at this thread. Some have said it already. So this whole video is basically just bullshit made by some biased xbox fanboy. Go to other sites to get less biased side by side comparisons without jacked up contrast.

    PROOF GAMETRAILERS.COM is ADJUSTING CONTRAST ON PS3:

    Alright xbots you can just STFU up now. Because here it is. See it with your own eyes if you dare. Proof GT has been tweaking contrasts.

    TRY THIS SIMPLE TEST AT HOME BOYS AND GIRLS:

    1. Open two browser windows or tabs with the following links :

    a. www.gametrailers.com/player/27913.html
    b. www.gametrailers.com/player/28005.html

    The first link is labeled "PS3 Stealth Action Gameply HD" bottom is for this thread labeled "PS3 vs Xbox 360 Comparison" Now pause each video on the frame on the tower shot where Altair is about to make his jump. Now either click quickly between two tabs or click between the two browser windows.

    What will you see?

    THAT GAMETRAILERS IS USING TWO DIFFERENT CONTRAST LEVELS FOR THE SAME SHOT THEY CLAIM IS COMING FROM THE PS3! For another example pause each video on the part where Altair has jumped into the hay. The best shot to show they gimped the PS3 contrast settings is where you see the hay from the side and the mountains in the background. It is about 75% of the way in on the first video and a bit over 1 third in on the second. Click back and forth between the windows and voila, the PS3 HAS TWO DIFFERENT CONTRAST SETTINGS FOR THE SAME EXACT SHOT. One being quite a few shades darker!

    The only reason I would get a PS3 is Metal Gear Sold 4. Thats it. All my friends have 360's, so I can play GTA4 at their place.
    The Wii is awesome. Have you played Twilight Princess? Also, when the Wiis gets its full online capbilities going... SSBB is going to destroy all!

    I really don't think there's a big diff between the two Assassins... just adjust your TV contrast... seriously. Again I own it on 360, well, just cause.

    I didn't like Twilight as much as everyone else. I actually sold it back.

    SSBB will be THE title. Maybe even more so than Galaxy

    I thought I was alone. I want to send out an e-fist pound to t-dogg.

    I've casually played games since the Genesis days and I still manage to suck ass it.

    I've stopped playing Halo 3 because I've been getting "pwned" way too much (although I do enjoy listening to the racists and internet tough guys talk trash... fucking hilarious).

    And RPGs do suck. Just hours and hours of collecting fairy dust and fucked up potions.

    At this point, I've pretty much stopped playing Halo 3. I've grown very tired of all the online chatter and realize my skill level has peaked, since I don't put in the time it takes to get any better. The spare time some of these gamers MUST have is frightening. Oh well, there are plenty of other (better) things to play.

    Speaking of which...

    Call of Duty 4 is on my xmas want list - along with Guitar Hero 3... (not that it matters - but i think I have both listed for 360, maybe COD4 is for PS3 - it really doesn't matter)

    I don't have enough geeky friends with spare time to do Rock Band - looks pretty cool though. By now, it's a given that Guitar Hero 3 is a fun time.

    Its kind of meh. I played liberty city stories and some of the most fundamental things were weakened. For example, aiming and shooting while running. In liberty city stories you had to stand still and aim. Weak.

    I'm thinking I might eventually get a PS3 in a year or 2. The library right now just isn't impressive enough for my tastes

    Zelda isn't really an RPG. It's action adventure. Link does the same damage with his sword all the time. If it varied due to something like skill points, then it would be a RPG. In this case, certain enemies take a fixed number of hits.

    True... I have just always thought of Zelda as an RPG. Now that you say that, I wonder why I have been classifying it as an RPG. Meh. Zelda is still awesome no matter what you classify it as.

    It was suposed to be a Wii launch game. Then got pushed back till, "sometime after the new year." Then was psuhed back till Summer. Then was pushed back until October. Then the release date was set for December 4!
    ... Then it got pushed back to Febuary 10th.

    I dont care, it will be worth it!

    I just recently got my Wii and for the while that I'm on Metroid and Mario, I'll make it to SSBB.

    But man I really need a new Starfox game.

    A starfax game on the Wii would be sweet.

    Actually, they should just remake Starfox 64 for Wii. No Starfox game will ever top that...
