A comparison of Sony's next-gen gaming machine with the current industry leader.
So it's actually a PS2! Damn that's value for the money! I must say the design is better now. But still it's large, larger then the 360.
First we heard everybody complaining the 360 would be too big and now this thing is the largest around. Isn't that a problem anymore to the PS3 buyers?
Now how did we know you were going to make the first post? WTH is with you anyway? Is posting comments just safer because you won't get the beatings you got in class?
There is actually a point to his words for once, though. Last gen, Sony slammed Xbox all across the world of gaming media for being too large, too expensive, and for having invested too much in technologies when "small differences in hardware do not matter". (quote from Kutaragi)
Now Sony is commiting the ultimate hypocrisy by breaking virtually ALL of those standards. A few more:
-"The boomerang controller is final. We will not be changing it despite the complaints."
-"Playstation 3 will not have a unified online service."
-"A simultaneous global launch is impossible." (well, they were going to try for a while, until their OWN prediction held true for them)
i'm sure that would have been a great read....if i could read japanese.
Just make up your own words! Fun! ;) It was interesting to see the side-by-side comparisons. The new controller & triggers may take some getting used to, but it's still a good design.
That is a very good looking piece of hardware. i like the see threw black caseing. I still would have to say the 360 has the edge on the controler though. if your controler is running out of life, are you going to get a notice on the screen, or is the light on "the back" of the controler going to flash. Got to love the ring of light!!!
That's Japan to English translation, meaning what the hell is George Foreman doing working at sony? LOL, kidding, it would of been nice to of read the site someone so nicely posted a link to for us non japanese audiences to see.
Damn that thing is ugly. It really looks outdated. Barely any difference between the ps2 and ps3 and the ps2 is decade old. If you asked a non gamer which was the older machine I believe they would pick the PS3 due to its enourmous size. I would rather they made the power brick external and cut the size down. I will wait till they have a slim version before buying one.
...yeah PS2's about a decade old but the great thing about it is that it still kicks even 360's arse pretty much when it comes to the fine small sized one, the sales figure and that number of breath-taking games its still having !!!
Sony's slim models suck hard. The PS2 Slim is a waste of money that is barely even a PS 1.5 from my experience. I may not be a PS fan but i've got a friend who has each and the Slim has insane load times and extremely poor graphics when compared to the regular PS2 and especially the Xbox.
my nes looks like the snes, and my n64 almost looks like snes.....my gamecube looks like a box.............and the wii looks like a portable harddrive..........and my pc looks like a larger box......and my tv looks like a home you can put under a bridge and live in it.......also known as a box..........really who cares.....okai it is big and all that.....but really....if you want something dont go and comaplain about it......i just dont give about these articals
I really couldn’t care less how big it is, I mean it’s not like it's a mobile phone lol it just has to sit there!!!
its not just the fact its BIG its the fact that there is obviously no imagination going on in sony, its still got same controller shape, ugly bubble like ps2 design and still in black...but shiny UGH! i threw out my black tv years ago, it would be an insult to my interior design to have that thing sitting out where ppl can see it!
All of you are still arguing about which next-gen system is better. I'm a proud 360 owner, and I won't give it up for anything. In a year or two, when the PS3 price comes down, I'll buy one. They're both good systems and a lot of good exclusives are coming out for each one.
The reason PS2 did so well was because it came out sooner and had GTA. It's true, GTA games sold so many copies it's not even funny. I'm not a fan of the GTA games because I don't like thugs. In fact, I hate them with a passion which would put Patrick Bateman and his thoughts on homeless people to shame. It's funny that all these thugs in inner cities want a PS3 but they don't have an HDTV to utilitize the full potential. They'll be playing games which look no different than the original Xbox, in terms of graphics quality.
Everyone I know who bought a PS2 bought it for sports titles and GTA. They don't play the Metal Gear, FF, or Devil May Cry games. I should also add that they're all casual, not hardcore gamers. They don't spend 8 hours at a time playing video games. I asked one guy at work who owns a PS2 if he'll buy a PS3, he said yes. I asked him which games he plays, and he said he plays mostly sports titles.
When the time comes, people will see that the 360 is cheaper and has the same sports games and GTA games that the PS3 has.
It's too early to tell which system will come out on top, however I believe that uninformed people will by the PS3 because of the name alone. It's unfortunate because both systems are extremely comparable and most who buy a PS3 will get it because they own a PS2 and think it's the best system out there.
Its BIG sure but ugly too, it looks outdated now so whats it gonna look like 2 yrs from now? like a fat ps2 but worse! and black is so 2 yrs ago already, No matter how you spin it, we still just want a game console first. Go push your format war somewhere else, actually just start again
When Sony stops production of the PS2, people will sigh....When M$ stops production of the xbox, it will already have been forgotten. How sad it must be to be an xbox.
