    Think about the last generation PS2 was the winner but there was that little saying "If a game is on all consoles get it for Xbox" but yet the PS2 was considered the winner. That saying was started because Xbox's hardware was better and it's online. The reason 360 is being called better right now is because it has a massive library of games and it's hardware is better but 5-6 years down the line when games are pretty much dead for the consoles I think PS3 will be better because of what we saw last generation.

    Now I am not saying it will be the same this generation because of a lot of things:

    1. Wii is a lot bigger factor than GameCube was
    2. We have reached a point where software is no longer 90% of a consoles success
    3. PS3 is loosing a lot of exclusives although it is retaining some

    yah your right, software is about 89% of the console success now
    360 also has achievements, a reason to get a game on it that is already out on all 3 or or 1 other

    interesting, but wrong. you cant compare the ps3 to the ps2. the ps3 will NOT come out on top. it would be lucky if it made it past the 15 million mark...

    If there's one thing I know it's that just because I'm positive something is true it's not

    Yeah, there are some small dicked idiots who will get a game just because of the achievements in them to up their achievements score. Seems like the Ps3 will do that too with HOME by having achievement trophies, which is a smart move IMO.

    The ps3 is losing exclusives! <-- what some dont realize that is that though they are not holding onto SOME already established franchises, sony is not losing exclusives as much as they are creating new franchises via exclusives.

    Lair for example.

    The PS3 is set up to last a lot longer than both the 360 and the Wii. Its blue ray ensures that medium storage will not be a problem as gaming evovles, the cell processor will be able to keep up with the demands of next gen gaming. Its firmware is so amazing that it puts every other system to shame in that department. Its open sourced, meaning anyone can create games, programs, apps, artwork.. for the PS3. Its completely customizable and its GUI is the best on the market. It has a portable device that works well with the system and also as a stand alone system, remote play, and as time goes on, developers are going to lean more towards sonys platform as the other systems fall behind.

    Home, pushes the boundaries when it comes to virtual identity and marketing. Companies like home because of what it can do for them, gamers like home because of what it can do for them, everyone is happy and the service is free. Xbox live just had its arse handed to it by Sony, and we will see this even more clearly as time goes on.

    The PS3 was the last to join the fight, and it will be the last to lose. Its going to be interesting seeing which new features will become standarized in the home entertainment world. The next wave of consoles will show this.

    Can we start taking bets? I know I'll make money betting against the PS3. It's too much of a pain to program on, the games cost too much both in budget and price, and the system itself costs too much. When they do a price drop Microsoft and Nintendo will drop their systems $100 to counter, thus finalizing this modern day Neo Geo.

    History repeats a lot. This is no exception. Study the past consoles if you don't believe me. Horribly expensive consoles meet with horrible ends, always.

    Right. I'm sure as hell not paying $600 for a new console. That money would be way better spent upgrading my video card or CPU to play newer games.

    Let's say in a year from now the Wii is completely obsolete and crappy... I wouldn't doubt Nintendo releasing an upgrade of it in the same budget to keep the general public impressed with the graphics and features.

    For me, I will always use a PC over a PS. But something like a Wii (or any nintendo consoles minus the GC n DS) will always be fun, not relying on graphics. Even 2d games are fun.

    1. It is a great value for what is included and the price will eventually drop.
    2. Games cost the same as 360 games and are only ten dollars more than Wii games.
    4. Stupidest reason ever.
    5. Learn how to spell.

    Neo Geo was higher than the PS3 and other consoles went for around 125 at it's time today Neo Geo would be around $2000 if history repeated itself they would need a console that expensive

    if $600 is breaking any of you, perhaps moving out of your moms basement might help. I do the occational part time internet job when im not doing something in the film industry. Just yesterday I emailed someone and asked if they want content for their website, they said yes, and passed them over to a company that gave me 25% of what that guy buys. Now im $16,930 richer, and all i did was send one email out of the blue. Im only 24. The fact is, people are not so poor as to not be able to spend $600 on a game system. Unless they are children. Then again, i know kids that have more money than some. In the real world $600 is nothing, a nintendo wii for 250 is chump change. People like me buy them for the hell of it, because we have the money to do so. Like most people.
