The Future of XBox and Playstation (THEY ARE DOOMED!!!)
    #5055021 - 12/12/05 11:44 PM (15 years, 2 months ago)

Ok lets try to take a glance in the future for a bit shall we?

As we know Microsoft and Sony seem to be walking in similar hallways, this is my prediction for these new gen consoles.


MICROSOFT XBOX----------------->BAM!<-------------------PERSONAL COMPUTER



SONY PLAYSTATION--------------->MEDIA/GAME MACHINE AKA> PERSONAL COMPUTER



You might as well just buy a pc because thats where these new generation consoles will meet sooner or later. I mean how far will it take until one hits the edge of each other? Microsoft isn't creative, money isn't creative, what is creative is Nintendo, that is where it will never end. I really want to see Microsoft or Sony have some new creative ideas besides "graphics" because "graphics" will only lead you into a wall. Graphics have limits, and if Microsoft and Sony keeps going in the direction they are going they will be stopped dead in there tracks. Creativity is the way of video games, and thats what Nintendo sees, thats what Nintendo is. Thats why I think Nintendo has great success. I have nothing against Microsoft or Sony its just they don't appeal much to me anymore. PC games fit in my area of xbox 360 and Playstation 3 because thats what they are basically.

Please share you opinions.

'tendo 4 life

i agree with you. better graphics don't make a game better. they help kinda.. but i still think that games from the 16 bit era look the best.

dude you might be right someone with the Nintendo thing but the best system by far i think is n64 it had the best fucking games ever i bet every single person on this forum can name at least 3 of their all time favorite games from the n64 which you will be playing for a very very long time. I still play Ocorina of time, James bond 007, and Super Smash brothers and i have the xbox ps2 and a wide variety of computer games but i still think the n64 is the best all around game system

Pc 4 Life.


One thing i never understood is FPS (First Person Shooters... like Halo) being played with a controller on XBOX/PS2.

The only way (and the proper way) is with a mouse and keyboard. Much more efficient!

Well, though the Xbox and playstation are clearly turning into PCs (which they both kinda are already). What they offer is a standard system that game designers can design a game around.
Game designers know exactly whats the specs are for the xbox and the playstation, so no patches necessary and smoother game play. The problem with PC games is all the bugs and the need to upgrade your computer all the time to play the latest games.

If i own a playstation, i know that i can play any game that comes out on the playstation. same with the xbox. When a PC games comes out, i have to compare it with my system specs to see if i can even play it.

This doesn't bother me, cause i always keep on top of upgrading my computer, but its still a valid point.

And also, All nintendo systems rule over all of their comparable generation consoles. NES is better than that crap 8 bit sega. SNES is better than genesis. N64 was better than original playstation and the saturn. The Gamecube offers way more game play per game than Playstation 2 or xbox. They even think up better names, Playstation 3? thats not even trying.

"To do right is to know what you want. Now when you are dissatisfied with yourself it's because you are after something you don't really want. What objects are you proposing to yourself? Are they the objects you really value? If they are not, you are cheating yourself. I don't meant that if you chose to pursue the objects you most value, you will attain them; of course not. Your experience will tell you that. But success in getting after much labor what you really don't care for is the bitterest and most ridiculous failure." -George Santayana

I can see that, if you started out playing PC. For me though, I can't help but feel like I'm pointing at a screen coordinate when I use a mouse, possibly because I'm using one to point at 2D windows all the time. It's as if I were walking around holding my hand as far out as possible and pointing at things with it.

... just some food for thought.

I have a Game Cube and an XBox to supplement my PC. I like them all, but i prefer FPS's on my PC... Nothing beats the versatility, accuracy, or speed of the mouse and keyboard.


My wife (who used to manage an EB Games store) brought up a very good point just now, though. She says that the simplicity of being able to pop in a game and go will keep a lot of the computer-phobes from switching to a hopped up PC. Plus, parents tend to buy their kids consoles b/c they don't have direct internet access, which can lead the kiddies to the evils of pr0n. Plus, she likes stuff like Animal Crossing and Harvest Moon, which don't really have a PC counterpart.

I think consoles will be around for a while, just because you don't have to mess with PC BS.
