I hope not. The sony empire and its bullshit needs to die. I hope one of the other many replacement DVD standards takes over.

From what I've played of PS3, 360 is still out in front graphics-wise. And xbox has the halo series... that shit will keep xbox going forever.

when people realize that the ps3 is made with the same shitty hardware as the ps2 was it will sink down the shit drain. the 360 already has a great audience and the wii has helped to damper the ps3. microsoft also has some tricks up there sleeves for the 360.

Man i got the fucking dreamcast, thinking it would be sweet and all. NO!

What a colossal waste of money. i hear even the Wii isn't doing so good, what with its remote that breaks everything and all.

Wikipedia:

In the USA, "HD Ready" refers to any display that is capable of accepting and displaying a high definition signal at either 720p, 1080i or 1080p using a component video or digital input, and does not have a built-in HD-capable tuner.

So that means you still have to buy the HD tuner separately.

I'm sorry, but I'm a proud member of the Sony Nation. :shrug:

I loved my PS1 and still love my PS2. I won't bother trying to put my hands on a PS3 for another year though.  And I've owned 2 Sony TVs, a Sony video camera, and a Sony digital camera.  And I'm sure I could think of a few other products if I tried.  And I have yet to ever have a problem with a Sony product.  Never even suffered any of the glitches that PlayStations are "known" for.  Maybe I'm just lucky, but its working for me so I'll keep buying Sony products.

I'm not sure that the X-box is going to be exactly like the Dreamcast in status, but it will most likely be the closest to it. Sony has plenty of room to expand and they have a ton of good games coming out over the next few years. I think the Wii will do pretty well due to it's engaging nature.

I hope Sony has learned its lesson this time around, though. They need to delay next time if they don't have their supply together. As far as mechanical problems, most systems have those at the beginning anyways.

Xbox 360 is and has been high def. 720p and 1080i AND 1080p.

And standard definition is 480i. 480p would be referring to the early generations of so called "hd televisions". Where were just EDTV. Enhanced Definition Televisions.

The cable box you receive from your cable company can act as a "tuner".

This is a good way to save a few bucks on an HDTV, but an "HD monitor" or a TV without a tuner. They are a lot cheaper and all you need to do is hook up a cable box.

And yes, X box 360 can output an HD signal, but it cannot play HD-DVDs, unless you buy another external add-on.

correct me if I'm wrong... but isn't blu-ray regularly associated with DRM? That thing that is tantamount to warning people not to be customers?

I've seen people saying that this trait may be the death of the blu-ray format... but I don't know much about what they base their claim upon.

Well, that is unless if Blue-Ray becomes the next Betamax.

The way I kind of see things is.

- Super-hard-core gamers will own all 3, or /atleast/ PS3+XBOX360
- Hardcore will own either PS3+Wii or Xbox360+Wii
- More casual people will be inclined to go with the Wii

I think the Wii is going to do well no matter what, simply because it has a broader appeal to the kind of 'mom and pop' type gamers, the ones who dont care about having THE BEST graphics and ZOMG LOOK HOW REALISTICTHEBLOODISBQBBQ?!$ type gamers. At the end of the day, I think the Wii is going for a market which is not going to eat that much into the PS3/XBOX360 competition.

The Wii has the price point of 'oh, well -- its not THAT much money' and will be more of a 'casual' buy for alot of people, then something that will have them shelling out $600 some dollars for.

Also, with hords of mom's descending upon electronics stores to buy little jimmy and timmy a console for their birthday / Christmas / whatever, the Wii seems like a far more attractive option.

I do think Nintendo is shooting them selfs in the foot by not limiting the new Zelda to Wii, I know SOOO many people who would of bought a Wii right out the door if it wasnt for the fact they could just wait a few weeks and get it for their gamecube instead. Zelda is like Halo for the 360 -- its a game that could of /easily/ sold consoles on that title alone.

On a somewhat related note - the dreamcast rocks! I think part of it's down fall was just how easy it was to pirate games for it. Dont think you even needed a mod chip for it? My BF has one, and he just downloads and burns images for it without any problem at all. With the easy piracy it was hard for game developers to make much profit off of it.

Alteast with ps2/xbox/etc, 'modding' it to pirate games was a bit of an effort, enough to stop 'joe blow' from doing it atleast.

Some of the dreamcast games are hella'fun, great way kill an hour or two and not need to invest hours and hours and hours into a game :smile:

AMEN!!!

Btw, my stepdad just got the HD-DVD tuner for his XBOX 360. Looks pretty snazzy. I'm probably gonna watch Superman Returns tonight cause my loser-ass hasn't seen it yet (and I don't care if it sucks, Superman is epic).

PS3.... hm... friend was supposed to get one but Futureshop screwed up their orders. We'll see if it's decent.

i think yall forget just how badass ps1 and ps2 were.
don't get their other departments mixed up with their videogame department.

and before anyone gets too overworked on the price issue, keep in mind sony is losing more than $200 every time they sell a system.

here's my prediction:

xbox will turn into an OS like product for your computer. Just install it and boot into it, or windows.. Just like win95, when you got to type in "windows"... now it would be something catchy, like "xbox"... they wouldnt take a loss on the hardware, and it would be up to you on how much you want to upgrade your computer. They would even make a bunch of money selling you things like, 'official xbox motherboard'. They could sweep the pc gaming industry.

i want to get a wii, just for the zelda, maybe some old school stuff... but i dont want to pay that much for all the old games.

That seems to be the general consensus about large popular companies. I like their products. If some big company that sells TV's has a TV for me to buy, I will buy it. If video game developers continue to market their games on PS3, XBOX 360, and Wii, and I want to play those games, I'm going to buy those systems. It's not like I can go out and try to support my local video game developer, what other systems are out there?

I don't like, however, the way they put a new system out so fast. It should be called Playstation forever, and you should be able to upgrade your system as new technology comes out, instead of making a whole new unit and calling it PS 1, 2, 3..etc.

I am going to say that you are wrong, and here's why:

The XBOX360 is being marketed by a multi-national multi-billion dollar corporation. Also the predecessor, XBOX did not flop, like Sega Saturn.

The clout this company has, the resources at it's disposal, is breathtaking. I'm sure Bill Gates could easily buy the entire country of Ukraine.

Microsoft just released their supposed "I-pod killer" called the Zune. Even with tons of money into marketing and all the free marketing that they have received, it is expected to be one of the greatest flops of 2007. It's not doing too bad at the moment, but it's questionable whether it will go anywhere.

Large sums of money put into marketing does not necessarily mean success if the consumers don't like it.

Sega remains a profitable corporation, you know.

They just bowed out of the console market in favor of becoming an arcade machine manufacturer and a software developer.

I have a friend that bought one of those. It looks like shit, and the controls are shit. It’s not even much cheaper than the Ipod either.

I’ll take my Video Ipod and my click-wheel any day over that POS. Just wait till the new ipod comes out, 3.5” touch screen click-wheel, it looks fly as hell.

Microsoft should stick to Software…




Is your friend a bloody retard?

Everyone and their mother was talking about how microsoft's zune player was intentionally designed to have cripplingly limited functionality.There was this little moronic thing called DRM that microsoft chose to implement in an unprecedented level in their player.

Their EULA boils down to "Microsoft vs. you, microsoft wins... thanks for the money"

with the xbox, you pay a subscription fee to even be able to use it online. If I remember right, the online play with the ps3 has no such fee... you just need to be able to connect to the intarweb.




But is it really that bad paying $60 for a year of Xbox Live? That fee allows Microsoft to have people maintaining and improving Xbox Live. With the PS3, Sony will do little to maintain it's online service. Each game will be responsible for it's own online portion.

Sony has also announced that some games will charge for online play, but it will only be specific games. I would be willing to bet that some of these games charge just as much to play just that game as Microsoft does for access to all of Xbox Live.

Microsoft wants the 360 to go the way of the dreamcast so they can sell a better console than the ps3 in 2-3 years. Just like the Nvidia/ATI and Intel/AMD duopolies realized they can make more by staggering launches instead of directly competing due to the rapid advances in technology.

It wont be hard to make a better console, considering that Nvidia's G80 graphics chip for computers is already twice as powerful as those in both the 360 and PS3.

Microsofts goal also is and always has been to make a set top 'in every home' computer like device that does everything.

Its not supposed to JUST be a gaming console. It will eventually be your EVERYTHING entertainment. They want it to be equal to a toaster, a coffee pot, whatever. Something every household has standard.

That's possible... although they may be referring to games such as Final Fantasy XI, MMO's that can be played on a console and require a subscription.

Final Fantasy XI was available on the PS2, and you had to pay Square Enix a subscription fee for it just like you did for the PC version.

To be fair, just about any manufacturer would love to do that. It's not isolated to any one or few of them or to any specific type of product.

If someone can actually compare the genesis from the late 80's to the xbox360.....then there's simply no sense in even replying to him, Moho.

I'm not taking sides on the hd-dvd or blueray. Who has the movies I WANT to see first, will have me as a customer.

Lord Of The Rings, The Matrix, and so on.

I'm going to say that the hd-dvd player, althought an afterthought and a mistake to have NOT included it in the system, is a great freakin idea.

It's the cheapest hd player on the market now!....not including the actual price of the 360.

Do yourself a favor and watch a hd-dvd flick on a hdtv. Trust me, it looks fucking amazing.

And to clarify, the hd-dvd unit will never be used as gateway to play hd-dvd based games. I think microsoft will be smarter next time around to include it in the total package right off the bat.

But am I mad that I have to pay 200 to watch hd movies on a system I laid 400 dollars on already? Yeah.
