That's right boys and girl, in all likely hood, your local Target should have a PS3 demo station up and running starting today.
No playable games though. Just a quick 1 minute blur of some of the games coming for it. It was not all that impressive to tell the truth. I hope things look better in the future. Not to mention that the thing is huge.
Wha? No games? If true, this basically confirms all the worst things fanboys could ever want to say about Sony. How about.... "Fitting! All Sony's showed us from the PS3 thus far has been pre-rendered videos anyway..." Or... "yeah, it's all about the games- which is why all this unit does is play BluRay videos and nothing more." How about... "Play n3thing." Everyone has to agree- shipping a "demo" unit this close to launch with absolutely nothing playable- not even anything INTERACTIVE really- is just stupid.
Still not playing games yet? Awwww I thought the Sony fanboys would be able to finally play the crapstation 3, but I guess to still have to wait to see how lame motorstorm and resistance is compared to Gears and the rest of the 360' present and future lineup.
Quit yer spamming, fanboy.
As of two days ago, my local store had the kiosk out, but no unit installed. Meaning that they had the TV, controller, and setup ready, but the PS3 unit had not been received yet. What a tease. I tried to see what the new controller felt like, but wished it was on a cord and not one of those horrible things where you have very limited motion. Buttons felt good though, but I was more interested in asking the rep about PS3 info. For the local Target, no midnight launch, no pre-order of course, not sure how many launch units getting, but supposed to be 112 by end of December (supposedly).
I'll bring the burgers if you bring the buns!!!! ;)
at the super target in clearwater, FL they had it playable. It had motorstorm and NBA. They should have put better games on the kiosk, since the demos underwhelmed a bit. But then again, Motorstorm is still a ways out and will have time for improvement, and NBA....well its sony's first party sports brand, and they usually suck.
was all hype, to me it looks meh and the gameplay looks worse, I am really glad i abandoned Sony to move to microsoft it was the best move i have ever made concerning gaming, the 360 is the best consoe I have ever played.
Deceased one thing i noticed in the demo also was that the spectators were just motionless maniquens.
You will have Motostorm and NBA 07 on a PS3 demo then right next to it will be Gears of War on a 360 for $200.00 less. I wonder which people will choose.
i wish most places would put Gears on the 360 vs Resistence on the ps3. but most stores don't put M rated games on Demo. It would be a good comparison
y is target demoing grills? haha, i kid, i kid
i just played both demos and they both ran smooth no frame drops controler wasnt bad people are full of it. motorstorm was very fun not slow it has niro boost and its and offroud game so no du its not gunna be extremly fast. the gragphics were good egual to 360 if not better. the was zaggs when you looked up close but from 2 feet away it looked amazing. nba 07 wasnt that good looking but it was ok for a launch title. the controler wasnt bad it didnt slip off my finger and my hand are avrage size and long. the triggers are low but i actualy like them when i get my ps3 i will sand grooves in the middle though cus i like concave. but it isnt nesesary. ps3 is a good system from what i played so people can stop talkin so much trash its just as good as the 360 if not better we will see.
Is that why the PS3 game reviews arent very good. They have already been comparing Tony Hawk on PS3 and 360. They are saying it is actually better on the 360, they were surprised on how bad the frame rate was on the PS3. It was almost unplayable, it ran much better on the 360. You people need to stop buying into so much hype, do your own research first. I will get a PS3 and a Wii because I love all games, but im gonna have to go with the 360 on top. I can wait on the PS3, i can go for the Wii though when it comes out. That thing looks much more interesting right now.
