New Writer Review - Shadow of the Colossus by Drew Pontikis

Another new addition to the Z1G family, as a confirmed Xbox fan Drew steps forward and tells us about the PlayStation game that won his heart (PS3, Retro, Shadow of the Colossus)

... its really sad that brand loyalty to xbox inflicts unnecessary pain and hardships in real life... very tragic

The writer needs to buy a PS2 and the game on ebay for a few bucks. It's simple really.

One reason that I bought a PS3 at launch was that I was a PS2 only console owner. Games such as this and Ico I felt would only be available with Playstation. Could enjoying titles such these be the difference between PS'ers and XBoxers?
(Come to the light, leave the dark side. Buy a PS3 and prep yourself for the big Number 4, and hopefully, Trico/The Last Guardian)

It is not ridiculous if they are providing what you want to spend your money on, you know, the basis of a market economy and modern civilisation. Why would anybody willingly purchase a product which has no appeal to them, or they don't feel they need?
For me time and money means 1 console per cycle. I can only afford 1 car, and so I buy the best I can, same with anything. If you purchase a product or item and it serves you well then a certain brand loyalty is a given. Its natural, no?

Try to break free from the Xbox only or PS3 only restraints (assuming lack of coin isn't the issue). It's quite liberating to leave that mentality behind. I own both consoles and love them equally. Purchase a PS3 and play what you love because you can and because its available. The HD versions of both games (Ico and Shadow) are amazing. You are not a "sellout" if you choose to own both consoles. We are gamers. No more, no less. Play what you love, mate.

As far as brand loyalty goes, I used to consider myself a Nintendo fanboy until the Wii broke my heart by being utter guff. Nowadays I own a PS3 and a 360 and I have to be honest. While the 360 gets used on a regular basis my PS3 is dustier than a munter's clunge.

With the Playstation brand you get to experience these types of games cause Sony isn't afraid to spend millions on new IPs. Sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn't but you have to give credit where credit is due cause Sony takes chances more often.
