^Dont compare DOA to Smash Brothers
They are to diffrent
Emulators are for people that dont have big collections of classic titles (That and to own a lot of the really good arcade games you will need a very big house and a bank balance that makes Bill Gates weep)
And lets face it its hard to get all those classic games as they cost a bit to much
Halo - Sick of and overrated
God of War - Take out those damn QTEs and let us enjoy the game more
Get your dates right about Metriod Prime (2002) and Halo (2003 was announced in 1999) and they are not the same style of shooter and is nothing like Body Harvest.
Crash was never really Sonys what with all those games on other formats. Kratos isn't really a mascot.
In the end the "gaming" thing is all down to what you like.
Like I said in the other thread
"Fanboyism - Leave it at the door please"
It will never be free for this generation... If Sony/Nintendo keep it free for the next generation than maybe... slim maybe microsoft might introduce free online.
Do not forget guys that 360 had the worse failure rating in history!!! they spent millions upon millions of dollars to fix broken consoles. They haven't even started to turn a profit with the 360 hardware yet. The only place they are making money "and probably will ever make money" with the 360 is on the game sales.
Look for it next generation, but your dreaming if you think it will happen for this gen.

In a bit of an irony, they all are kind of screwing us. Nintendo has Wii points for older games that you can download, but they only sell the cards in bulk of 2,000 points for $20. (NES 500 Pts. $5/SNES 800 pts. $8/N64 1,000 Pts. $10). Anybody remember you also buy these for the Nintendo DSi/Nintendo DSi XL/More likely the New Nintendo 3DS in future?
Sony is now selling PSPgo, which has probably already confused some people, because they pay $249.99 [Unlessed the price has dropped] only to relize they have to pay another to $20 to buy 1 Game out of the 2-4 games you can buy on the Wii (Unless you purchuse a newer PSP game). You can also purchuse a $20 card for the PS3 if you want that classic FFVII you never got to finish or other Playstation 32-Mbit Games that make your TV looking like it's about to break down.
Microsoft is in the lead of screwing everyone [Me, THANK GOD, I'm not falling for it though]. Having to pay $199.99 for the XBOX 360 Arcade, $99.99 for a 60GB Hard Drive unless they only sell the 120GB now, $4.99 for monthly online gaming fees. And I think you need the hard drive to play online as well even if you already have the $5 card, but if not then you don't need to cash in the $99.99 for an 60GB HDD.
[Playstation 3: Free]
[Playstation Portable: Free]
[Nintendo Wii: Free]
[Nintendo DS/DS Lite/DSi/DSi XL/3DS: Free (STOP MAKING MORE NINTENDO, MAKE SOMETHING ELSE)]
[XBOX 360 $60per year/ unless you buy the Wal-Marts $20 for 3 months then you're spending $80per Year and you are apparently disperate... I hope not]
But microsoft is the only making us pay for something We cannot keep [internet] and I'm not blaming Nintendo and Sony unless they start doing that too, but not unless they are more reasonable about it than Microsoft because they've been doing since XBOX launched.
RockerJ, They did not have the choice of pros at the time I bought my system. So what would you have chosen Arcade, Elite, Or Playstation 3? I barely got a Game and the system TOGETHER. If I had $399.99 screw the Elite/Slim X360, I'll just get PS3 because Blu-Ray Movies, internet, and free Online play with most of the same games.
