Last Thursday, this geek braved the treacherous weather and rushed back to Singapore from Kuala Lumpur in an excruciating drive that took me almost 6 hours because of the terrible weather, accidents, and traffic jams!
I approved this story only because I think the Star Wars game is going to be epic, but this is pretty sad day for this guy. Basically, after being wined and dined by Microsoft, he jumped on the bandwagon. Every game on that list except for Ninja Gaiden 2 is also available on every other console, including Star Wars, so I'm not sure why you need a 360 to play Star Wars. But, I guess that's why this is just a blog.
Yeah, its a very misleading title. I thought it was going to be about some upcoming Star Wars 360 exclusive.
especially since lucas arts focus its dev on the ps3 and not the 360 so expect starwars adn indi to be superior on the ps3 the only need for a 360 is gow2 and fable2
Lol the force unleashed is coming out on almost every system hehe.
'The Force is not strong with this Geek' ;-D
You know all those MGS4 previews from last week? Those were invite-only junket to Japan to see the game. How is this any different?
I'm surprised it took 11 posts for someone to make a RRoD comment. The Open Zone is over there, friend. Your console war crap isn't welcome here.
mgs4 is ps3 exclusive...food for console fans...plus star wars isn't in the same league as mgs4 etc..tbh you're arguing a mute point...nobody above are talking about what you;re talking about...they're talking about title being misleading etc...
@ n4user1 The reporters were invited to Japan to play MGS4, and to give feedback on how to improve the game. Also it gave journalists to write preview's about the game.
This whole story belongs in the open zone
Wow starting to think this is a ps3 fanboy only site. However the title is very misleading but its obvious this person doesnt know much about gaming or he'd know Star wars is coming to the ps3 also. What I fond interesting is that this is a non gamer and seems to think games like GTA , GH3 and star wars are only on the 360. could that be thinking of the causal non gamer now ?
i find it funny when someone calls out fanboys but when their comments seem to have the slightest touch of fanboyism. Anyways title is misleading, seems ps3 fanboys have become more vocal but the 360 guys are still here too. No one thinks guitar hero is just for the 360, this guy was just treated to a good time by microsoft so he just felt like a$$ kissing a bit so maybe he can get more later.
@1.10 You're right. This site is over-run. You only need to pay attention to what gets approved. Blogs (wordpress, blorge and such) that say the most ridiculous things against Xbox 360 (or unrelated anti-MS news) gets approved. Look at this: From blorg "Microsoft abuses Xbox 360 victims more than new customers" http://n4g.com/industrynews... From blu-ray.com about HD-DVD "All That Could have Been": http://n4g.com/industrynews... From blorg "Microsoft abuses Xbox 360 victims more than new customers": http://n4g.com/industrynews... Those are what is on the page today. Its ridiculous. If you goto those pages, you'll find the usual gang of PS3 owners screaming there too. N4G is a failed site, I only come here because I like to argue, its worthless as a Gamer's site.
The article is right, everyone knows that the multiplatform games are better on the 360, so yeah if you want to play it without watching a slide show then you need a 360. ☺
funny i get the disagrees what i said wasnt fanboyism its the truth lucas arts develops on the ps3 and ports down the the xbox360 that way we seen many multiplats beeing superior on the ps3 lately
yea it is on ps3 aswell, i guess a its easy to bribe tawianese bloggers.
Xbox 360 is dead
the only thing is dead is your brain harry on topic everybody need one, thanx god I already have one
Then what is the PS3? because it's behind. Dead, are the brain cells in your head from sniffing the paint you used to paint you PS3 white because you realy wanted a 360.
Microsoft is evil
Too bad he's going to miss Metal Gear Solid 4. Then again, a star wars fan won't be interested in that anyway.
Misleading title. Well just treat it another fanboy attempt to hype up a multiplatform game XD.

the title of this thread is just the title of the story the website used...i dont know who massacre is, but even if he is a 360 fanboy, hes just using the name that the story used, which may have been written by someone who didnt know the game was multi-plat (which is doubtful considering he is a gaming journalist but whatever)
grow up you pathetic fanboys, get a life(outside of gaming)
Hey Obama... most other fanboys of your quality on both sides of the fence have 5 bubbles or less. So... I was just wondering how many times a day you use IP changer to log onto a different account to agree and bubble yourself up?
I don't bubble myself up. The fact that I have so many bubbles is that I am popular, unlike you.
ahahaha you go into form posts just to say get a life? Wow, buddy. I think you need one more. on topic: The title was misleading, because general masses who don't know sh!t, will think they're xbox exclusive, and we wouldn't want them making the worst mistake of their life.

Grand Theft Auto IV by Rockstar (Official)(Gamespot) Multi-Platform What was he saying about buying an Xbox 360 for?
"Cocaine is one hell of a Drug" - Rick James
well he could be sayin to get a 360 for these games as its cheaper and the games are actually cheaper too.
For better multiplatform gaming experience. 98% of mp games are better on 360 so why not go for the best console out there.
I think you'll find that the "best console out there" is completely subjective to personal opinion, and nothing else. As long as you love what you play and what you play on, you win. Those who feel the need to argue their console's superiority obviously aren't enjoying themselves. They lose.
@4.4 Not "subjective", its according to the concensus opinion of the industry press. Goto metacrtiic and look-up any random MP game, if the score isnt dead equal, 95% of them will have better scores on Xbox 360. Further, you _really_ need to use an Xbox 360 on LIVE to appreciate why multi-console gamers would prefer their MP titles on Xbox 360. LIVE is _that_ good.
N4user1 two of the most recent games have had a higher score on the PS3 version then the Xbox version(Dark Sector and Army of Two) the rest of the recent games have been equal
wow, honestly who would disagree with LJWolly? thats just sad. Props to you my friend for saying a completely true unbiased post Edit: @ n4guser1 he said it depends on personal opinion, and you disagree you really feel the need to boast on your own console? Dont think peoples opinions are what matter? say i bought a Ford and you bought a Volkswagon. I say i like my car because it can haul things for me, you say no mine is better. Make sence? YES, STFU
Grr at everyone calling me LJWolly. Nevermind... By the way, thanks, yesah. Bubble for you :)
Yeah! You'll need a 360 for the Force Unleashed! Or a PS3. Or a Wii. I got all excited at first. I thought maybe it was about a new KotoR game. Thanks a lot, CNet, for the misleading, bias headline.
it pains me to see people disagreeing for no reason but to do so. I would much rather someone state there opinion if not in the same objection as I, then to go about with just "disagree". That is about as logical as saying "the earth is round" and then some one says "I disagree...", well? What is it you disagree about, there is much more to it then just denying the existence, you must be able to back up your claim. I dislike a large portion of N4G visitors for this very reason. If you have an opinion, try voicing it. *note* not directed at Silellak, just showing we both made obvious observations and we get disagrees with no explanation.
Some people think that the earth is flat. I didn't disagree btw.
As I also did not disagree with you.
Eh, I'm used to the Phantom Disagreers at this point. I'm fairly certain fanboys on each side pinpoint posters who aren't ALSO fanboys and just click "disagree" to any post they make. I wouldn't be incredibly surprised of 1 or 2 of the people "tracking" me are people I've somehow personally offended and so they track me just to "disagree" with anything I say, as if: 1) It makes a difference or 2) I care The Gamer Zone does a half-decent job (at best) of keeping fanboys from posting. However, it does not keep the Open Zoners from coming in and randomly disagreeing or taking away bubbles from people they don't like. The drawbacks of a community-run site, I suppose.
CNet and misleading go hand in hand apparently.
A lot of the Almish still tink the earth is flat, they're technologically impaired, so they've lost touch of the outside world, and therefore the scientific advances that have taken place in the last few hundred years. Back on topic, yeah, this is a misleading story, with a misleading title. Before it was approved, it should have undergone some editing, or something.
God I'd love to see a KtoR 3 . The title is misleading but I dont think its bias. It simple the writer opinion. I doubt they even realize the games are goin to be on other systems
Wow, look at all the PS3 fanboys in a 360 thread.. that's a surprise. Not. But, it's cool cause I really don't care that you guys are in here. Why? Cause I know you guys have nothing better to do than to read and post BullSpit about the 360 and it's games. So, have fun here, Ima go PLAY a game.. ya know, that's what you do with a GAMING CONSOLE, not watch movies, or in your guy's case.. let it sit there. (Considering you own a PS3.)
get a life. So we can't complain about the blatant false title? or are you just pissy because the better version is coming out on the PS3? or is it tough to hear the truth?
lol, your like a guy who goes into some online game just to tell ppl they have no life.....do you see the irony?
kudos to the sony pr machine. You have created a good website of mindless zombies.
thats all im saying
But i knw the game will LOOK and PLAY better on 360! HA HA HA HA!
on a game based on a ps3 build?
Especially since Lucas Arts says they're developing for PS3 and porting down to 360 with multiplats. Plus you get GT5, Motorstorm 2, Resistance 2, Killzone 2, MGS4 etc etc etc instead of just Ninja Gaiden 2 and maybe some other games which have been in development forever if they aren't delayed again. *Too Human*
shudn't throw stones when u yourself are in a glass house. Talk about delays shall we? Kz2 3years, mgs4 3years, FFX111, home, LBP, GT5, yeah right on time.
Ending up with a better product justifies the waiting (IMO).
Don't call people morons, that constitutes posting in the Open Zone as well.
Could some one point me to the Gamer Zone? I think I'm in the wrong section... Wait... Nope, this is it...
Ah, whenever I make sarcastic comments, I end up making a spelling mistake that just makes me look stupid...
@ LJWooly delays dont always = a better product. Plus the problem with delays is in how announce games and set dates for its release way to early. If they simple waited till the game is far enough along to set a release time frame their would not be so many delays.
For better multiplatform gaming experience. 98% of mp games are better on 360 so why not go for the best console out there. shudn't throw stones when u yourself are in a glass house. Talk about delays shall we? Kz2 3years, mgs4 3years, FFX111, home, LBP, GT5, yeah right on time. Umm, are you dumb? Funny, alot of new people here talk like the 360 is King and that this is a ps3boy site, yet, there used to be more 360 fanboys here than ps3 ones until not that long ago. Almost all of them were like THE_Mart, like you. Best console? There would have to be a matching failure rate, not the current 20+% v 1% No matter how many games there are, it doesn't matter if the console isn't reliable. The only game you listed that has been delayed was MGS4. Those others HAVEN'T ANNOUNCED RELEASE DATES YOU IGNORAMUS! They haven't said when FF13 will be done (they just released FF12 the year the ps3 released you moron), neither with Killzone, or home, or LBP or GT5. Heck, they are just about to release the PROLOGUE to GT5. I'm sorry that they aren't just shining the graphics of the previous entry and adding a new button for these sequels. Heck, at least ps3 fanboys are funny, M$ fanboys are just retarded and can't ever have their info strait. ALSO, THE PS3 HASN"T EVEN BEEN OUT 3 YEARS, SO you FAIL IMMENSELY, on topic, This article is misleading
How can those titles you mentioned be delayed if there weren't any release dates for them. And whats up with the 3 years statement? Damn you xbox fans like to EXAGGERATE numbers a lot. 3 years??? FYI the PS3 is only about 1 1/2 half years old.
You do realize they start working on games BEFORE the systems hit the shelves right? Kind of hard to have launch titles if you don't start making games until the system is already out huh? They've been working on most of these games since 2004-2005. Thus the reason you saw anything at all during E3 in 05 & 06.
I am actually aware that games have been in development before the release of the console. Read psycho's comment again, he is implying that those games have been delayed for 3 years now. 3 years in development doesn't necessarily mean 3 years of delay. We all know quality takes time to produce.
Force Unleashed is all about incredible physics engineering, just what the PS3 excels in :) p.s. incoming disagree whores
I don't particularly care what system I play it on as I have both, but I disagree just because you wanted it!
He's right though... It does excel in that. I just don't think Lucasarts would take the time to use the PS3 to its full potential. The game looks amazing though.
