    they got it right with the red ring of death, that's microsoft one and only major flaw.......

    comparing gears of war to killzone and restistance 2 is a joke, those two games are sequels to titles that aren't even near the critical and commercial sucess of gears. Maybe resistance came close, but killzone was a mediocre game at best.

    They are right about home gearing towards the casual gamers....i think they havea point there. But xbox live is still where the real gamers want to be. After homes appeal dies down, i wouldnt' be suprised if gamestop gets overstocked with refurbished ps3's...lol

    they are right though, 360 is going to lose, but we all knew that. We didn't know they would pull ahead AS strong as they did though, but microsofts goal was to become number 2 by next console season.

    except killzone 2 is looking to shit all over killzone 1 (never played the first one, but i'll take your word for it). everyone who played k2 at e3 and the press was raving about it... soo you can ignore that or not.

    its not like home is going to be the primary interface to play other people. its just something to do. its better than 360's rip off of wii's mii avatars at least.

    this guy interviewed from gametrailers made a great point about the 360's e3 presentation

    - lips (rip off of sony's singstar franchise)
    - they got some webcam coming out that is gonna try to do what the ps3 eye is doing in terms of game interaction
    - live avatars - rip off of wii's mii's
    - new 360 dashboard - rip off of itunes' coverflow
    - of course microsoft's rip off of little big planet, is a bit pathetic

    everything is based on something already successful.


    the only shit i'm jealous of is the netflix support.

    Microsoft was destined for dead last every console generation. They tried strong arming their way into the industry at their own expense and at the expense of the consumer. Throwing money around will only get you so far. Their best idea still remains Xbox Live and it seems thats the only thing holding them up.

    exactly, i just hate the fact that they've strong armed themselves into this industry. they've employed the same methods they've used with windows, never having a fresh idea, always adapting ideas from more innovative companies. even though i use windows daily (out of necessity and for my work) you start listing all the innovations that windows stole from other operating systems, and its pretty clear how they function.

    for the sake of the industry you should not be supporting xbox, soon they'll buy their way into the ENTIRE industry. you'll be forced to play all your games on one system and have to pay to play online. they'll have a monopoly within the console industry.

    whatever man.

    i dont want to see sony go the way of sega.
    these are companies with legacies within the industry.
    microsoft is a company with a lot of cash to throw around.

    bungie left microsoft. expect some bungie games on the ps3 and pc.

    i copped a 360 at first and then later a ps3 only through the graces of allah and saw the light at that moment of turning on my ps3. how wack xbox 360 is. its just wack. their interface is wack. paying for wallpaper and gamer pics is wack. paying for online is wack. xbox live is 90% racist white boys that play halo. halo is just wack to begin with. I dont want to associate to them.

    ps3 is like magic johnson. 360 is like larry bird if larry bird was fat and never learned how to play basketball. and was racist.

    i mean i dont mind in game headphone voice chat, but only with people i know. but in game voice chat with people you dont know... its a painful reminder that you are playing with 13 year olds. at least when you play with people you know, you know there won't be any racist bullshit being shouted

    Actually they came in 2nd last gen, with ps2 in 1st and gc in dead last.

    It is true that there are to many racists, but thats on ps3 as well, you can't blame a system for morons who learned how to turn it on.

    I've been a big fan of Sony since the first day PS was released, but I also have been a fan of xbox though I sold my original xbox I really enjoy my 360 so of course i'll support it.

    Though eventually I will purchase a ps3 just because I supported sony for the last two gen's, might as well keep it going lol.

    ps3 is less racist because it intitally had a higher price eliminating red necks from fly over states charles darwin style

    I mean people who have ps3's just tend to live more sophisticated lives in general.

    ps3 should partner together with apple. the logical move.

    and take down microsoft. they could have itunes store built into the interface and cop movies/songs right into your system. some sort of compatibility for iphones/ipods similar to the psp

    oh and I just thought of this

    create a way to include songs into games

    example:

    download x song from itunes store and then

    configure it to play as background music for...Grand turismo or what have you

    ah it goes hand in hand that way

    it would be impossible for micro$oft to do this (copy this) becuase they are natural enemies with apple

    also the possibilites and ramifications this could have with home are to the sky

    it would prove how much better of a lifestyle statement having a ps3 is. its like why buy a regular cell phone when you can get the iphone? They both basically accomplish the same task for you but so what one of them is just cooler.

    the ps3 is just cooler. at the end of the day thats what console wars was always about.

    awesome ideas Radium.

    now that sony's online music store is a complete failure they might as well make some deals with apple. microsoft will never cut a deal with apple, like you said, which makes sony the logical partner for apple.

    the truth of the matter is ipods are the walkmen's of the 00's, adapt of fail.

    i always thought they should incorporate ipod compatability, like plug in your ipod to your ps3 and be able to access your music in the xmb.

    you can already do this with a 360....

    just plug your ipod or any mp3 player in to the usb port...i also stream music off my network to my 360 to through any game im playing....

    one thing i love...is how favian is running around saying all of these things that microsoft is "ripping" off of sony but neglects things that sony has "ripped off"

    six axis??
    trophies??
    hard drives in game consoles??
    playstation marketplace?
    friends lists?
    Resistance?? killzone???? OMG! Halo wannabe's

    ....see how easy that is?

    dont be an idiot...someone does something...it works...everyone else does it...thats how ANY industry ALWAYS has been...your sitting here preaching innovation like microsoft is the only company "ripping off" as you say....

    lmfao @ this thread .. wow .. this place suddenly burst in to PS3/Sony fanboy hell ..

    Radium completely blew his own "argument" apart with the retarded post of how the 360 is to blame for racism whilst the PS3 is the keeper of peace and higher intellect .. what a fucking moron .. proof in himself that his statement about 'sophistication' is complete rubbish ..

    Also funny is favian's "point" that Liquid smashed about how Microsoft are supposedly the only company in the history of all history to adapt an idea to their own use .. lmao ..

    iPod - uses earphones! .. OMG .. stolen from walkman ..
    Laptop - uses keyboard and a screen! .. OMG .. stolen from the PC ..

    erm ..

    Eye-Toy - only like 2 years later than Sega's Dreameye .. but original and shit right?
    along with all the stuff that Liquid pointed out ..

    yeah .. I refer back to the post about being 'more sophisticated' .. bwhaha ..

    fanboys are the bane of this industry .. 'support' your console(s) of choice .. but try not to make yourself look like a fucking idiot at the same time yeah? ..
