Very good if not short analysis. The PS3 is still very far behind in the console wars, and has allot of catching up to do. What made them get so far ahead in the last generation was their affordablity, massive licensing agreements, ease of publishing games for their system (see the flooded market of PS1) and ease of making controllers for (DDR, Guitar Hero, Light guns a-plenty...ect.), are all lacking in their ps3. It is as if they decided to ignore all the things that made them good in the first place and just copy xbox and wii.Originally Posted by lenitao3
Wii is suffering Nintendo syndrome, as in the limited game pool (Nintendo doesn't allow many publishers), and half worked concepts of controllers.
Given wii is trying to redeame their mistakes and is doing a pretty good job if not slowly, PBR is their first step to the way they should be going, fun lighthearted mulitplayer games. What the wii lacks that the xbox has is a larger online gaming base and more credible games. I'll say it, Halo is not that special, its just another run and gun title, that is severally out classed, in single player, buy things like gears of war, and even the battlefield series.
Then why does the Halo-box dominate the market? Easy, online multi player. It has the best their is to offer in that market. I can sit down to my roommate's xbox, hit matchmaker, and watch as dozens if not hundreds of emerging game types (that players are creating ) load quickly and pair me with people equile to his rating (hes good, I'm not)
Wii right now is greater than the PS3, witch has little to offer, while wii has the limited offering pool. I put my chips in with the wii, mainly for link and samus and the hopes of a awesome new smash bros.
Lastly.....Why is this forum not closed, and better, why is it in the pokemon forums.
