Sony's next generation console has made a big impact in today's newspapers – with The Guardian and Evening Standard offering very different opinions on the forthcoming PS3.
No, I'm not a sony fan but I also don't like how they try to make it look like an entire newspaper does or does not support a game console. it's only 1 writers views. RFOM will be a very good title as will lair. Enjoy.
Newspapers don't matter anyway. None of their staff ever knows anything about gaming or technology. I remember reading a New York Times article last year about the 360 that had over half the information wrong. They just need to stop talking sometimes but never seem to know how.
“The first thing that hits you is the quality of the graphics. They are incredibly detailed and fast, noticeably more so than Microsoft’s Xbox 360, and often tough to distinguish from video.” More so than Microsoft's Xbox 360? Yeah..I've seen in game video of alot of these launch titles and I can confidently say they do not look any better than what the xbox 360 has done so far. Furthermore Gears of war looks better than any game to date not to mention the enemy AI and physics are far better than those of R:FOM. So I really dont know how that guy can come to such an incorrect conclusion of the PS3 games looking better than 360 games, especially 360 exclusives, if anything they look very similar to be perfectly honest.
Because its his opinion. right or wrong, we all have em. Yours differ from his, and so on and so forth.
sony has in the past "created" reporters/critics to say "XXXXX is really great! two thumbs up bla bla bla" they even got sued and lost over it here in the USA. So you cant really trust any of this garbage. hres a link: http://movies.yahoo.com/mv/...
I never knew that about Sony!
that's a very arbitrary argument. so what, now are we to doubt every Playstation review there is, even the sound ones praising games like Ratchet and Clank, while dogging games like Killzone, simply because of Sony Picture's woes? besides, what does this have to do with SCE? if Sony has proven anything lately its that Division A operates under co-independence from Division B.
by any chance would devision A be the CEO's and division B the marketing department and PA team (or simply the rest of the world)
microsoft lovers will continue to believe sony is paying off developers to say good things about ps3,paying the media and anyone else who sees the ps3 as being a better system out of the box than 360.maybe that's why they don't have as much money.we are all as a civilization being paid by sony."hey sony,where is my next check?" "i need it before i get my microsoft and nintendo checks next week."
Ps3 coming so late has caused major problems for Sony.... Ive said before that the Ps3 needs a huge buzz to be surrounding it for the 1st year, Ps1 had it and Ps2 certainly had that in droves, hence there was no chance for Sega with the excellent Dreamcast... The Papers keeps the momentum going for the average person (parant)creating what i can only call a Buzz about the console, something they should be buying... I can only ever remember the newspapers who seem to know nothing about consoles, going hysterical and believing everything from Sony hype about Ps2. Just saying, yes and i know its just the 1 paper, this aint a good sign for Sony.. If the buzz is, its not any better than 360 then Microsoft will win by a bigger margin than any1 ever expected....
GOW does not equal the best looking game ever! UT2007 uses the same engine and has A LOT more going on! But to correct you Crysis us by far the best looking game! It never fails how you 360 fanboys always yet and use GOW as some kind of cop out! Damn give these developers there just do! They earned it and they did what most of us though was improbable which is get damn near to that infamous E3 05 video!
He should have said console game. URT will be on both console's so that doesn't count and Crysis isn't a console game.
Of course there will be better looking games than GOW in the future like crysis and Alan Wake, but for now GOW will be the best looking game for awhile on any platform including pc's! Also last I checked UT 2007 looked inferior compared to GOW even though they are using the same engine! Im sure it's going to look alot better upon release,but as of now it's not a good comparision!
UR 2007 will be fun but just as fun as all of the others. Ru 2007 is not an elusive and it is not original. We have been playing UR for years and years and years and years and years and years and years and years. Nothing has ever been new there. And it may be on the 360 too. You do remember AC right? Do not act like because this is a new article that the sky has changed from blue to green O.K.
When i said that GOW was the best looking game to date i was considering the following facts. The game will be launched in a matter of days which i can basically consider it released already. UT2007 is 7 months away from release and i am sure those graphics will be surpassed by the time it launches by some other game be it on consol or PC. Also Crysis is months away from release and is supposedly PC only and to get the max visuals out of that game you would need a $4,000 computer with mutiple processors and graphics cards. I was not speaking about months into the future i was refering to the best looking game as of now. Hence why i said best game to date.
What i want to know is, is this guy lieing to himself because i can clearly post a link that proves this guy's opinion is suspect. He might be judging the games of both console based on the launch tittles which would be a mistake. I mean what does it matter it's unlikley PS3 will pull ahead of the 360 graphically untill the next Xbox, if it can that is.
can you explain why?
It really doesn't matter, if a first time user(EPIC) can make Gow look like it does the first time using the tech i don't see how launch games matter, games start to look and play better not the other way around. Multi threaded know-how will help the dev's push forward. Dev's Understanding PS3 hardware will be a problem almost through out it's hole life cycle. So this is why i think lt would be a mistake to compare. Only time will tell if PS3 can some how leap frog over the 360 graphically(some how jump ahead of dev's knowlege and time and ease of developing with 360's hardware). The PS3 would have to be pretty powerful. Its really all up to the DEV's and their talent.
y do u guys hate ps3 so much? i'm a sonyfan and i don't hate the xbox 360. i don't know y u guys keep saying that ps3 will fail, it's not even out yet "(11-17-06) can u guys read". i own a 360 and i will get a ps3, and i cant wait for GOW and Resistence, those are the best game out there right now, y hate ps3 or 360, both are great who's better? i'll keep it in my mouth because if i say it i know everybody will be desagree with me.
Not to sure any of their opinions have anything to do with hate. They don't understand the guy's opinion that goes against 99% of the gameing world. Sratching your head in confusion isn't hating.
Same reason some guys hate Chevys and like FORDs, or team X vs team Y. For some people it's more than a preference, it's a passion.
Ummm, who cares what these newspapers say? They're not even gaming publications.
i find alot of newspaper writers don't know ALL the information when they write their pieces. they rely on their OPINIONS to carry the story and many times, people who know roll their eyes because of how dumb they actually sound. this happens alot especially when they write stories about new technology. this is no different.
RFOM isn't even going to come close to COD3, So the 2 best games coming is GOW and COD3 bar none. On topic now, Its a news paper. People only look at news papers for coupons and local news, just drop it allready.
that's my christmas right there, GOW than COD3. Even if resistance was on the 360 I'd get COD3. and no I'm not just saying that
The average Mam and Dad dont read the video games mags but they DO read the news papers.. If theres enough newspapers saying the PS3 isnt as god as Xbox360, it will make a difference thats for sure... Sony will lose the BUZZ (theres got 2 b a better word for it) the thing that makes ppl believe its a must have product.... The apple Ipod has this in spades, theres plenty of MP3 players that are as good or better than the Ipod but the ipod has just got the buzz surrounding it that ppl just need 1....
i hate sony! but anyway 360 games to date havent shown much of what the console can do, i think its cos there are so many games comeing from ps2 and being ported to 360, once the old consoles are gone the graphics will get better, i remember when ps2 came out and they released monsters inc game in a limited edition box, and it was just a ps1 port with better textures, and showad nothing of what the ps2 could really do, so its still gearing up to show us what it can really do GOW is a good start, both consoles are pretty even as far as i can see, just depends on personal preference, but i hate sony and wont e supporting them anyway
So what these newspapers state is just as influential, if not more. Shadowgamer's right about Unreal Tournament though. The gameplay screens shown so far do have an edge over Gears since it keeps the same graphical quality, but has a lot more opponents and much larger environemnts (as well as vehicles and all that other cool stuff). It's funny to see PowerofGreen state "URT will be on both console's so that doesn't count" To state that it's somehow 'wrong' to compare two games from the same developer just because one of the titles is multiplatform is kinda cute.
So what were you saying? the human control/AI is better is UT 07 because they went a different rout with UT vs GoW or wher you saying it had to do with hardware?. You still don't know what will be in the game, well do ya!. I read some pretty impressive computing that will be taking place in the background. Gamers will be the happiest they've been in ages, 3 days left and if i'm wrong i'll never come back. You still dont know how many charectors will be on screen at once. I'm starting to doubt Epic also they say Gow will hav vehicels but i have not seen one pic of one. lol / GAME CRAZZY MAKES SO LITTLE MONEY OFF THE FRANCHISE THEY STOPPED CARRYING UT's, BUT THIS ON MIGHT LIVE UP TO BE MORE THAT THE SAME OLD SHEEEIT!!!.
actually if you watch the 1up show they have some sort of turret vehicle they show you on!
I don’t understand the fanboys? I have a 360 with all the fixings. I have Media Center hooked up, it runs on my big screen DLP, have the camera, and the 360 is an impressive machine. But why do people have to rag on the PS3, it looks like it will also be a hit. Each system has it’s advantages. For me, why the 360 next to my DLP is because of the its multimedia capabilities (Media Center Extender), XBOX Live (sure Sony might have something similar, but not better), and I have been playing the Next Gen for ¾ of a year. I even bought Splinter Cell at Best Buy in which they gave away with each purchase, a 1 yr subscription to XBL, and also in the deal got COD 2 for $10. So the cost of XBL for a yr is free. Sony on the other hand may have a slight edge in graphics, Blue Ray player for true HD movies and still might have the edge in 3rd party developers. But the bottom line is that both systems will be similar in performance, similar features and both will do well. I truly believe the race of 360 vs PS3 will be close enough that both systems will be around a long time, both with great games during its lifecycle. But for the life of me, I still can’t wrap my head around why Wii seems so popular except for a younger audience. The game controller looks substandard, and it isn’t next gen to me, just a stronger last gen machine. But even that, I am sure the people who like Nintendo games will love it, and hope it does very well.
Blu Ray player for true HD movies, I like that...
