....."The JOEY has Spoken"
I just read the article and I don't know what to say.
My sentiments exactly. I wonder why this non-story is so popular though...
thank you o holy news post for stating things that we know already and adding absolutely nothing new degrading its status as "news"
seriously there are thousand of these "summaries" out there and none of them are particularly interesting, can you people start hunting around for real news now
Does this provide insight to anyone on this site? Did it inform me of anything I didn't know? Nope, not news. Everything in there is the same ol same ol. Great Find!!! </sarcasm>

At this point wouldnt the 360 and ps3 be current gen?
We need to lose this next-gen identifier.
But I agree with this article and since it's a positive 360 article I am going to sit back and watch the Sony Protection Group do their work like always..
@6.1 - Look it's the first one!! Calling everyone ignorant like he actually knows what it means. Sony troll d!ckface(looks at his comments) yup, confirmed. You are so predictable it's funny, and also completely sad.
360 fans sabotage ps3 posts as well- in fact they used to do it more back when they had faith in the 360 and there was a huge army of xbots, regulars like zhuk, theMART and POG would always climb onto ps3 posts and do the exact same thing
now that most people aren't as ignorant anymore- that has died down, but theres always people like you who think they are HI-LAR-IOUS and incredibly intelligent
EDIT: why do i even bother? i mean was i seriously expecting anything other than an angry, moronic reply like you get from POG, GITPWNED, wageslave and the like
"sony trollz r [email protected]
and i do know what ignorance means- and you my friend reek of it, now please do what you have to do and give me another angry, meaningless response
WTF? going against peoples opinions is called a debate- which is something i enjoy in any shape or form
and you are such a hypocrite- you say bad things about the ps3 day in, day out
So says the mindless troll that actually over see's all 360 threads patrolling every thread spamming it up trying to enforce an anti MSFT tone in every thread.
You really see me in lots of PS3 only threads? are you sure thats not my evil impersonator? lol.
You're going to have 1 bubble by next week if you keep it up. Calling people out when you're on a mission vs other people just having opinions. lol
360 fans making comments in a PS3 thread every once in a while isn't the same thing as some fanatic nut with a agenda. Can't speak for other 360 fans trolling PS3 threads I hardly visit the comment sections of PS3 news assuming I even read more than the header.
Any moron can check PS3 and 360 news posts and see who's trolling lol.
pfft... what this from 2004 or something?
how can something 2 years old be next-gen? all the consoles are "current" gen now. sticking next-gen infront of it is just marketting.
The 360 is not the best SYSTEM the Wii is.............lol jk the other one is ps somthing i forget the name >_>;
5 weeks 3 days"
Another Xbot posing as an INTELLIGENT journalist.
Jump OUT and Play B3YOND
XBOX: A Next-Gen Console.. that always breaks, is too loud, upsamples audio and video poorly and runs on an undependable network. lol
Why is this here? This is not news! Why is it even getting more popular??
Zhuk and this author are one and the same. Either that or they both pull their material from a recycled 360 marketing bin.
So what is the problem?
Why even comment?
rather the way in which the content was delivered. I didn't expect you to follow that though. lol
Because P2P online gaming is superiour to dedicated servers. Does she have any idea what she's talking about? She is not a gamer
Yep, this isn't news. This was a bad one.
yep, indeed, it ain't news, it's MS paid propaganda.
Perhaps you missed that it was SONY that was just outed for trying to buy game reviews.
Perahps you missed that is was SONY who was caught writing their own movie reviews and using them in ads.
But, as we've learned, a True Sony Believer just rejects reality and substitutes his own fantasy land wishes. Keep up the good work.
Perhaps it's not!
Everyone already knows Xbox360 is the king of this generation.
I hate it when people use the phrase "one of the best" too often. When people say "one of the best basketball players," it's ok because there are many basketball athletes out there, and being one of the best (which implies that there are just a few others who are the best at it too) actually means something. For gaming consoles, especially talking about next-gen (as it was the title of the article), saying xbox is one of the best means next to nothing.
It's kinda like saying "Xbox 360 is one of the best gaming consoles out there. PS3 and Wii are some of the best gaming consoles out there too, as well as PS2, PS1, SNES, NES." That's saying nothing about xbox 360 at all. If you want to say it's the best, say it's the best. Stop saying it's "one of the best".
Does anybody have that peeve or just me?... I think it is probably just me lol.
BTW not to say whether xbox360 is or isn't the best console out there, it just feels like the author was paid to write the article.
PS3 and 360 are current gen
talk about noob
Can you believe the malice on this site!, friggin wow!. Just got through reading some of the commnets in the GOW2 thread and the MSFT execs jumping ship thread.
I read a member actually say he dare somebody post good 360 news on this site. WoW!.
What causes this type of collective mental issue a hate so deep its mentally not healthy(#10 and #2 are examples .
what the hell are you talking about? i didn't say anything bad about the 360 in that post i just said that this is not news and definetly doesn't deserve to be on a "news 4 gamers" site because its just another summary that we have seen and heard before many times
hell we have heard the same thing so many times that my grandma is fully capable of advertising the 360 now
But usually 'good news' is... you know... news... something we don't already know. The h8 is because every single thing in this article is already known to 'fandroids' and 'xbots' alike. It brings nothing to the table and has only been approved for flame wars.
But by all means, flame on my friend, flame on.
To the phantom disagreer: What did you learn from this article? Just one thing that you learned, that's it. Enlighten me and the rest of N4G. I own a 360 and I knew EVERYTHING in this article BEFORE purchasing it. You = FAIL. POG was it you? Come on, you can be honest...
The bulk of fandroids posts isn't bringing anything to the table 95% of what they post is usless propaganda. I'm trying to understand what this thread being usless has to do with the hate and malice.
PS3 fanboys are trying to keep that post Warner Brothers goes Blu-ray exclusive atmosphere on this site(trying to keep the rabid flow)
Re-read my post. Hell yah I dissagreed, your comment suggest that this being useless news gives the right for Rabid PS3 fanboys to talk sh*t and bash with unhealthy malice.
HOW can any human being in hsi right mind ever play on the psn with people like sony fans ??? god imagine if the ps3 had people actually online these sony fans remind me ofthe low life racist redneck that ruin thi sworld they are so avid and fanaticul i bet most of them live in the usa
The Xbox 360 is undoubtedly the True and Only Next Generation console on the market today, combining the unrivalled power of the Xbox 360s hardware capabilities with the award winning features and multimedia capabilities of the Xbox 360 the Xbox 360 has set the benchmark not only for all gaming consoles, but for all electronic devices on the planet.
Since 2005 the Xbox 360 has continued to be the most powerful electronic device ever created, with the PS3 proving its inferiority time and time again. The fandroids love to pay more money for an inferior machine, they love to pay more for inferior graphics and they definitely love to pay more for an inferior contoller and inferior multimedia capabilities. With so many award winning features Only available on Xbox 360 such as Xbox Live, it is becoming clear it's impossible for the PS3 to close the gap as the Xbox 360 continues to expands its funcionality, power and value for money.
Those fandroids are really what Bill Gates would call " BABOONS....AHAHAHAHA " when they shell all that cash over for what is possibly the biggest piece of garbage ever made since the CD-i, while the execs at Sony laugh all the way to the bank about how they could slap a PlayStation sticker on anything and they would buy it
havent seen you on for a while. whys that?
out buying a blu-ray player maybe?
"powerful electronic device ever created" Come on dude, ive read your PC related comments, your not stupid, why act it?
It is difficult for Zhuk to maintain a high level of presence when the fandroids continue to give 7 day bans every time they childishly and incorrectly report my comments as spam, usually resulting in Zhuk getting banned from the PS3 and Xbox 360 sections, along with 75% of articles on this site.
If you wish to see more of Zhuk, please join my growing list of fans and supporters and kindly donate bubbles, agrees and letters of appreciation and support
"please join my growing list of fans and supporters and kindly donate bubbles"
Ummm i think im gonna have to say No to that dude. But i always read your comments and never try to take bubbles, i think everyone is entitled to their opinions. Plus if you dig deep, theres normally something true/interesting hiden within the M$ PR.
My advice, if you wanna keep bubbles dont talk crap, id rather know what you have to say/think rather than "The Zhuk".
Why?????????????????? because he is....
wake up the dream is over
best feature is how it kn0ws excatly when your warranty is up then [email protected][email protected]
back on topic. i cant believe my ps2 lasted 2 and a half years before it crapped out on me and this so called "awsome console only lasts people " a month in my case" atfer the one year warranty.

p.s the 360 does have its good games although lacking in diversity in genres.
In terms of hardware the PS3 has way more power than the 360. When it comes to content well, the 360 owns that category. As for a "superior and reliable" online service I strongly disagree. All during Christmas it was garbage considering you pay for quality. The PSNetwork hasn't experienced issues like that with their "free" online service. Hopefully things will start to look up for PS3 in the future. The PS3 seems to have a far greater life-expectancy. They are both great "next-gen" consoles but I don't know about the 360 being the next-gen gaming console.
PS- to who wrote below... I do own a PS3 and 360 and agree with the fact that in-game XMB is needed.
I wonder if the person who wrote the article has actually used a PS3. I have to admit that having a PS3 for several days now that I find it a much more agreeable experience overall even though it has one obvious weakness - the lack of an in-game XMB that allows you to join game sessions or manage your friends list. However, this seems to be on the way.
Other than that I find it hard to fault the PS3. I still experience game lag but thats the nature of the best given that I live in NZ and most games are hosted off shore. Mind you, at least I no longer have to pay for the experience.
Oh yes, the PS3 is much quieter than I expected - The Xbox 360 sounds like a dustbuster next to the PS3.
I love your avatar. I own both as well and 'droids' and 'bots' comment on anything they can, even though I stick to my guns on what I like and don't like about both systems.
Bubbles!,I certainly can't agree more with either of you. Sticking in the middle is a well rounded position ( even though i don't have a 360), but at least you guys show 'hope' like some others on the site that N4G isn't totally overun by rabid fanboys.
Back on topic.
This is old news, I haven't gotten an xbox 360 but I'm positive that gamers already know, and consumers would've already checked each systems (wii Ps3 and 360) websites to gather more info, but this was so like a year and a half ago? please refrain from putting up news that we may have already seen or know in our heads. Thanks.
I see that Bloodmask has just completed his Grade 4 'What I Got For Christmas' homework assignment.
Yet more garbage which further degrades the diminishing integrity of this poor website...and no moderators in sight to stop it.
Oh, for shame.
system that doesn't work I mean next gen would have next of everything does that system have hdmi that is superior and have 7 controller and have a built in blu ray that is winning over its rival or when you put in the disc can automatically put it in and better hd that is native
and can play all games from your 2 consoles while the other doesn't and have better online that doesn't lag while even though the other one has quality but no service then again theres going to be even a better online for that console that works so ?now? which one is the nex gen Zhuk?.
I like the ending..Somthing about it may be ONE OF THE BEST NEXT GEN GAME SYSTEMS? Uhh..Theres only two right? Three if you want to include the Mario machine.
I own a 360,but this article is a piece of propaganda trash..or a advertisement (same thing right?)
arnt we on 4 now. What the hell were they saying anyways there. That was very uniformative and I hated reading that.
360 is old school compared to the ps3... Ps3's online is as good as xbox live.. Live has more user features but the ps3 now has user created content and ITS FREEEEEEEE!!! And once home drops ps3's online will be a complete package.. My friends who have a 360, im always telling them to play cod4 online and there like i dont have a membership anymore to live..LAME.. 360 got nothing on the ps3 except a bunch of over rated FPS games...
I think the xbox360 is more old news than the PS3. I mea it is almos two years old and consists of last gen DVD drive. PS3 have the next gen Blu-ray drive, addons are crap. You cannot be paying $299.00 or $399.99 for a system and still have to buy additional parts thats so last gen. PS3s HDD is removable as well as it has built in 802.11g wireless and a built in giga ethernet port. Also the PS3 is more capable of doing online entertainment when ready. Also its FREE. Free from RROD, Free from overpriced custom HDD, Free online gameplay which is great. And no bull about hi-def visuals.
That's like calling the PS2 old news right after the Xbox - complete with HDD - came out. The 360 is definitely next gen. It's still the best graphically and still has the best frame rates on the majority of games.
SONY DEFENCE FORCE ACTIVATED
This article seems to be written by the Zhuk
If someone don't know : Sony defense force is a xbot's site.
they are so desperate.
Wow this article is covered in the gasoline of the flame war.
can i ask PS3 users something.
what PS3 game is really next gen.. i mean.... what features???
and please dont bring LBP... I'm 22 and not interested in bubblegum games.
you're discounting littlebigplanet because you know it was the easiest answer, a game that provides all content considered to be next gen. then you denounced it as bubble-gum, when the adult crowd is more interested in the game than any other. moving on:
UNCHARTED: Drake's Fortune.
was like Gears of War in a Jungle. amazing lighting (that isn't the XBOX nextgen lighting which is known as 'blooming'.. a somewhat fake version of HDR.. i think that eventually people will get really bored of their games blurring into white every time i light is applied to a surface, Drake's actually has an unlockable called 'next gen lighting' that makes fun of the current 'next gen' lighting standard made so popular by 360.) as well as some of the best animation quality seen in gaming today.
Heavenly sword set the bar for in-game cinematics.
Ratchet and Clank is the first game to get anywhere near Pixar level of detail and animation quality.
Unreal Tournament 3 - the first multiplayer fps capable of modding and distributing mods over a console network. as well the Engine it runs on is the most reused engine on the XBOX 360 which i assume you claim is 'without a doubt' next-gen.
any game you consider next gen that is multi platform - lets say burnout for the sake of fanboys knowing the demo is better on ps3.
note that i only mentioned games that are out.
the REAL question is other than any game running UE3 engine (which you know the ps3 can run exceptionally well) what games for 360 are truly next-gen? leave out halo kids, that game has been running on the same engine since its original conception, and even still only made it out in 640p.
Best Features, best games. Xbox 360 is leading for a reason.
