    Blue Ray might win the HD format war, it may not. But would anybody who's smart about they're money want to spend a considerable amount on a format that hasn't proved itself?
    Why not? In order for a format to become successful and prove itself someone has to buy it. By your logic, we should all be listening to transistor radios, watching heavy black and white tube televisions with rabbit ears, and still riding around in horse and buggy's. Technophiles feed the frenzy that creates an interest in a product.

    Just because Sony's track record from proprietary products hasn't been the best doesn't mean BluRay will fail. Doesn't mean it will be the winner of this format paradigm either. Beta failed for a few reasons in the consumer market. It was bulkier and more restrictive. Sony is very strict about what companies can press on their media. VHS took a lead over Beta after the adult industry embraced it. Sony had banned the industry from selling porn in Beta format. That shouldn't be as big of a deal now as most adult content is now viewed and purchased online.

    Back to my point, if no one spends "a considerable amount" on a new format, we are stuck with what we have. Currently it would be up to 14GB of storgage space on a disc.

    Personally, I'm waiting for the disc to go away and hard drives take over. You can get 750GB hard drives for a fairly decent price right now, and that will continue to get better. It is the future, some cars already use a hard drive for mp3s and navigation systems.

    Read the second to last paragraph. I know the nav system is a bit large, but its the start of the next big thing.

    Enough of this Blu-ray Fighting!!!!
    WHO INVENTED THE CD ALONG WITH PHILIPS???????
    SONY DID My bet is on them
    and since JVC isn't in the battle to beat out sony i think they will do just fine.
    For you retards who don't know jvc made the vhs and beat out sonys betamax. I don't think Sony is that threatened by NEC and Toshiba....

    BTW Great Job on being a bunch of pussys Microsoft!!
    Can i personally think of any gaming company that Supported another companies console fully before ?? No , so Microsoft is such a twat they are going to suck up to Nintendo since the Wii is dominating..... by all means BOW DOWN TO NINTENDO bill gates go the **** ahead. your still a pussy though.

    What if, on a crowded street, you look up and see something appear that should not, given what we know, be there. You either shake your head and dismiss it, or you accept that there is much more to the world than we think. Perhaps it really is a doorway to another place. If you choose to go inside you may find many unexpected things."-Miyamoto

    My point is, the gba cannot be compared to the PS3. Doing so just means you are really reaching for an excuse. The bga is a cheap portable hand held device, much like those vibrators, the PS3 is not. The PS3 is about 2000 times more powerful and thus costs more. The childrens market is huge. Parents are more willing to drop a few bucks on something to shut up their kids in the back of the car, than spend money on something like the PS3 that is not portable and not for kids.
    The PS3 is for people who take gaming so seriously they have no life then you say? I agree! Yay, you blew off someones head. NEWSFLASH: THAT IS NOT WORTH 1000 freaking dollars! Lets see what productive things you can do with that money: Buy Adobe Flash and get a good book to learn how to use it! Get a new computer. Computers can take you further in life than a PS3. Learn how to draw, paint, do a computer language, even going to a museum is worth more for taking you further in life than a PS3. Only an idiot will invest that much in such a dumb FAD!!!! Arrrrggghhhh I can't understand you people!!! Do you have no life, no talents, no knowledge, no real skill???? WHY DO YOU SPEND THAT MUCH ON A FAD?!!!!!

Why advertise a product when the big games and projects are still in developement.

    Nice try.


    The FPS market is bigger than the RPG market outside of japan. Studies show the casual gamer prefers quick pick up and play games that involve a lot of action. The FF series takes patience.
    "Hardcore" FPS Fans are mindless undergrads. They'll fail their community college course and then they'll slowly die. I'm glad the Japanese are smart! Sometimes a gem game will come along with an intriguing story like Halo. That keeps the letters FPS from burning my ears.

    Okay now I'll agree here because I like Halo.

    No different than the Wii's lineup. A nice look on gamespot.com shows that half the games they are advertising are old VC games. No one said that the launch titles were strong, they usually are not. Good games take years to develope. Exclusives arnt everything, take for example.. The Darkness is coming out on the PS3 and the 360. ONly the PS3 can have more content than the 360 version, and it does. Sony doesnt feel it needs to pay up the ass for those exclusives when they feel the free internet, bigger storage medium and online bonuses are incentive enough to get a multiplatform game on the ps3.

    Go ahead and look at the upcoming games coming out this year and you will have your answer. Theres a strong lineup of exclusive and desirable games just around the corner.

    Nice try.


    Actually the games developed on the Wii are very simple. Theres only so much you can do with the 700mhz system. Its quite easy for ninty to pump out games like wii sports, paper mario, wario ware. Dont expect too much out of the wii and you will be happy.

    Just how it is.
    Thats not that bad. I'm not looking to die weighing 300 pounds having Grand Theft Auto playing a more graphical "hot coffee" on my T.V. screen.

    I like the old Mario, Link, Samus, and now Pit kickin' each other's butts for about 10minutes to like 2 hours of my day. So maybe I'm a know nothing "loser" who is "stuck" with an uncool system, gotcha there, PS3 is so "cool" isn't it? I'll admit that I can't afford it, you rich Hollywood scum! I also feel that I am beyond it though. I can find pleasure in simple things. Kororinpa is fun for ages while Resistance is disgusting, boring, and kinda dissapointing(played 'em both). Halo is great and I may buy a used Xbox and play the first two and Fable. I suppose I'm stuck with the simple Mario Galaxy, SSBB, RE:4, RE:UC, HAMMER, Disaster, etc. I'm saying: FUN FATOR, MONEY, AND BEING PRODUCTIVE!!! DON'T BE SO MATIERIALISTIC!!!!!!!!!

    Whats a fad about the PS3? It uses better tech then 360 and Wii, thats been the purpose of game consoles since day one.

    I would like to see someone get a comp with PS3 stats for less than $600. You cant. So why spend $250 on a console when you can get a $200 comp that can do everything the Wii can plus download old games for free? You want to know of a better investment, **** the Wii and get a PC. A PC kicks the shit out of the Wii, then rapes its mother.

    Get a PC instead of a PS3? I dont even see the logic in that since it applies to EVERYTHING. 360 games are almost all on PC, so why get a 360?

    Nintendo must have stuck their name pretty far up your ass.

    Dont blame someone for you being cheap, you cant afford it, oh well. Stop being a whiny bitch. Play your Wii, Care Bear, no ones going to listen to your sob story.

    No, thats what you call someone who knows what their talking about, a fanboy is what you call monsteroids, who claims the Ps3 is for someone with no life. Well i own a Ps3, im 16 and pretty good looking, training to be an Raf pilot soon, get plenty of girls anyway and im not fat, quite skinny actually? so basically you just stereotyped Ps3 owners. Gimp.
    Just got my Ps3! The Wii is now gathering dust until Super Smash Brawl!

    Beats being a Nintendo fanboy. At least PS3 fanboys make sense.
    PS3
    "So whats bad about the PS3?"

    Wii
    "Well, its expensive! And uh... you can get a PC that does the same thing but better."

    PS3
    "Mmhm mmhm, well cant you get a PC that does what the Wii does for the same price?"

    Wii
    "Cha, you cant emulate the Wii's fun factor."

    PS3
    "Interesting if true. You can get a PC that can run a Wii emulator for around the same price though. Why would you only say the PS3 would be a better PC buy if all consoles are way behind the PC gear, mainly the Wii?"

    Wii
    "You dont understand. Sony is forcing things on us. I didnt ask for better graphics chips or a faster proccessor, no one wants blu-ray! Its just an expensive entertainment system that happens to play games. The hard drive is stupid, who needs that much room?"

    PS3
    "So Sony should have just ignored developers wanting a bigger disc to make the games the way they want and used DVD's like everyone else? Wasnt the NES marketed as an 'Entertainment system'? Microsoft released a HDD of 120gb cause people were filling up their 20gb. Plus Nintendo will be announcing their hard drive add on for the Wii at E3. It looks like people do need that much room."

    Wii
    "It would have made the system cheaper and more people would buy it."

    PS3
    "Being an avid gamer myself, im always looking for a system that pushes its self and companies to make bigger and better games. Would this happen if they used DVD's?"

    Wii
    "Look at the Wii, it doesnt have amazing graphics but its still really fun. The PS3 is so far behind PC, its really not that great."

    PS3
    "All systems are speced worse then a PC. Are you saying they should stop making games and start making PC's? I will say that Sony VAIO is a pretty sweet comp but its way more expensive then a PS3. Wouldnt a PC be a better buy then a Wii?"

    Wii
    "No."

    i love this thread. it just makes me want to purchase a PS3 even more now.

    i got a Wii. since i'm not really a console gamer anymore, i'm 22, living by myself, full-time job, and taking night classes at a CC. life is busy but good for me. anyways i thought the Wii was a next-gen console, until someone mentioned that it was not and that "Reggie" explained that part. i was so disappointed. the only reason why i was getting a Wii was because i thought it was next-gen and that it could deliver some decent kick ass graphics. guess not.

    i've got myself a PS2 and i really don't see a big improvment in the graphics on the Wii. granted, the system hasn't been out very long but i'm not impressed. "will i be?" that's the question.

    the Wii games give me a sore arm, but it feels good because that's a different approach in gaming. okay. great, so when is that going to wear out? never? i sure as hell hope so, so that my 279.67 after taxes doesn't go to waste. to be honest Nintendo very impressed me with N64 or GameCube. SNES was the best i would say. mario this and mario that. shit, i wonder if mario is like 90 years old because he's getting "old". why is link always in the same type of story as the original back in the day?

    a lot of people make really good points in this thread. and there are some really dumb assed people who think that sony forced anything on us gamers. for one thing, even though i am the casual gamer i still want to best of the best.(oh here comes the flames with the cock smokers saying - "yeah but we didn't ask for the good graphics, the hard drivers, the songs that i like to listen to while i'm playing my games, and the bigger and better library of games to come. that's just soooo expensive and they forced that shit on us." you don't have to buy the system if you don't want to, they aren't forcing you to dish out $650 after taxes (where i come from).

    it's like - do you like to get raped in the ass? well your not getting your ass raped by a criminal who's forcing his dick up your asses here. you have a choice.

    ouch!! sony forced me to buy a PS3. that's like saying "OOOOUUUCCCCHH!!!! i was raped by this really ugly, greasy head muthaf***** who is a serial rapist with a crazy assed mind...

    ... but i let him do it...


    it's just so funny to see what people really think here on the forums. flame my skinny ass if you guys want. i don't care. truth be told - wii has a small wii wii in terms of graphics.
