Microsoft and Sony Make the Console War Personal

CCC Says: "If the console war took place in a prison yard…I’m pretty sure one of the companies would get shanked.
It sounds weird, but that seems to be just how personal the console war has become--not for just gamers, but also for the companies releasing the systems as well. Over the years, I’ve seen the birth of many new generations. Actually, I’ve seen just about all of them. I was there when Nintendo resurrected the gaming industry with its 8-bit innovation, and I’ve been gaming ever since. While I’ve not owned every console, I’ve seen successes and failures come and go. Now we’re left with what I call the “big two”: Sony and Microsoft."

At the end of the day, we "hardcore" gamers are a very small fraction of the larger gaming community. Less even those guys who would go to great lengths to defend Sony or MS on forums such as N4G.

I think price will be the deciding factor in the end. Some may not see $100 as being that much, but if I were a parent, I would definitely take pause at that number.

Now I'm not saying MS is doomed, but I definitely think they dropped the ball and left the door open for Sony in a big way this year.

Should be interesting to see what happens on the Nov. 15 and 22. Who will have the craziest launch??

"Who will have the craziest launch??"

Whichever one has the most deaths I suppose. I know one dude got shot at the PS3 launch. Some crazy people out there.

LOL. Figurative question, didn't think anyone would be so...... "eager" to take me literally.

I'll fix it for you LOGIC, "Should be interesting the see what happens on Nov. 15 and 22. Who will have the most successful launch."

There you go buddy, enjoy.

real life average Joe here. Price was a defining factor in this current gen. I had to choose between the ps3 and the 360 and price made me go with the 360. sure, price won't matter for some people, but the majority go with price.

When it cones to next gen I say count me out! until the xbone starts supporting 360 games, I will keep enjoying my good and dear 360. have lots of games to beat on the console.

besides graphics, neither console has sold itself as a must have for me. eventually, process will drop on both and then I Vang decide.
