Editorial: The State Of The Console War

It's an ongoing topic of conversation amongst all avid gamers, and of course, the ebb and flow of the retail tides tends to dictate which console has the lead. But that's hardly what everyone argues about - how does one argue over cold, hard sales stats? - so let's examine where the PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, and Wii stand at this point in time.

That article was copied word for word from one of my comments a few days ago...

1st under articles positive towards Sony.
Where did you post your comments word for word so we can compare?

toughNAME: I don't normally read comments here, but this caught my attention. I've never copied a word in my entire writing career, and I don't need help forming my own opinions. Please don't accuse me of something utterly ridiculous.

"Where did the Wii games go?" =O

boodybandit3745d ago

He made it pretty clear with his:
"" How many are on the Wii, and how many are on the PS3 and Xbox 360? The discrepancy is pretty gigantic, isn't it? MGS4, DMC4, GTAIV, GT5: Prologue, Resistance 2, LittleBigPlanet, Gears of War 2, Killzone 2, Too Human, etc, etc, etc. The biggest of the big, and ain't none on the Wii. I'm sorry, but I don't care how innovative your interaction gimmick is; without the software, no video game system on earth can win a console war. ""

I think this is why most members of N4G don't dispute or care what numbers the Wii brings in. Most people seem to think of the Wii the same way Ben Dutka (the author of this article) thinks. I cant say that I totally disagree with him but I guess only time will tell if the Wii slows down.

this article gets me a little big worried, im ganna buy an xbox 360 in September-October. When do you guys think the next xbox will be out? I dont wanna buy it and then a year later a new xbox comes out.

Maddens Raiders3745d ago

purchase or do you already have "backup"? <_<

blackbeld3745d ago

why buy 360 if u can play the exactly same games on PC. like gears of war is for PC also. the RROD are same as BSOD that u will get. that sucks u know. Buy PS3 u got everything that will make u'r life easier and better and happier. PS3 is the winning game machine. so its better not to follow the sinking ship(360). Try use u'r brain.

Lucas223745d ago

i have a ps3 already.

Heres my choices

1. If i buy the xbox 360
i would get little big planet, socom for ps3. Gears 2 + fable 2 for xbox 360.

2. Dont buy xbox 360
buy little big planet, socom, (call of duty 5 or resistance 2), fallout 3. Save 200-300 dollars

LastDance3745d ago

from a couple of screenshots ive seen,...fable 2 looks really good! Depends on the state of your wallet:P...its always good to be diverse so id say get an xbox if you CAN afford it.

at the end, its really up to what games you want to play the most.

Bangladesh3745d ago

If you don't have a 360 yet, I would definately get one.

etownone3745d ago

Definitely get the 360 if your a gamer... Gears of War 2 and Fable 2 will be EPIC!! and then you can go back and get Mass Effect and Halo 3 :)

I also see you included Fallout 3 as one of your games you'll get if you don't get the 360... you do know that the exclusive downloadable content for fallout will be available this fall only for the 360 along with the DLC for GTA4.

thereapersson3745d ago

But what if he doesn't want to purchase DLC? I'm actually wondering how well the DLC for GTA IV is going to sell, considering how ADD-prone most gamers are nowadays. They play something for a while and then quickly move on to the next big game.

titntin3744d ago

There should be no question mate - if you have a PS3 already, then definately get a 360!

Its got some great games and theres some great ones coming out.
Any real games player needs all the machines to play the best games..

If you didn't have either, it would be tougher choice. I actually see things pretty similar to the guy in the article, though maybe not as clear cut, so I'd probably prefer a PS3 for the long term from here. But you should have both, as theres plenty on the 360 to be happy about!
