Jamie Foxx  +   2625d ago
but hiphopgamer is certainly just a gamers gamer and tells it as he sees it so kudos,360 is going for the jugular this holiday season,we as the consumer are certainly reaping the awards from this price cut (cheap way to play gears) and because sony must now lower their price microsoft have forced this upon sony,to all the fanboys this is why competition is good

3 years into it's life and $199 for a next gen console with no dedicated hard drive and a last gen disc format.(The Wii seems to appeal to alot of non traditional gamers,360 does not) I just can't see the 360 selling Wii like numbers at this stage.

I figure the 360 for 5 million maybe 10 million(life time) bigger install base than the original Xbox. I will have to wait for the numbers obviously. But if the 360 crushes the competition the holiday season I will say I was wrong and everyone that disagrees with me was right.

But I don't think that is going to happen.

I TOTALLY AGREE! At least you get a hard drive, HDMI/Component and DVD playback with the Wii. And it's cheaper!

why all the fuzz about this price cut??
if $350 didnt do anything for 360 in this year what will $300 do??

about the arcade well... people buy the wii not only because its cheaper but mostly about its motion sensing controller, i dont know why people want to forget about that fact!!

the arcade will not steal a single casual customer from wii!!
and the premium and elite maybe they have a little bit better chance on competing with ps3!

dont forget ps3 have blue ray, free online,wifi, HOME, and multiple AAA mega hits this fall and finally big blue ray movies like the dark night etc all that for just 100 bugs extra!!

because yes we as gamers know the ps3 has alot of advantages technology wise over the 360 but IGNORANCE IS BLISS how else can a console using ps2 technology in dvd9 and have a33% hardware failure rate not be dead and buried.....,theres comments further down from steve saying he may pick up another 360 as back up? rrod seems acceptable now(crazy huh),rrod & ps3s advantages are not highlighted enough to the masses & parents are looking for a cheap way to enter the 'next-gen'

I like the hiphopgamer, I think he's generally pretty well informed and comes to logical assumptions about things...

That said, and I should also say I haven't yet listened to this episode, I just read the synopsis right here... but all that said, I really don't know why he would think Wii would come in last place this holiday. It will probably come in first place again. Remember, the holiday season is when parents buy stuff for children. That means Wii, as far as I'd venture to guess. Sure, there are teenagers who will get 360's and PS3's, and adults who will ask their girlfriends or wives for a 360 or PS3... but I think that the Wii will continue to be a complete absence from store shelves this holiday, selling through all stock and being the biggest seller yet again.

Also, what is it with these people lately saying 360 is destroying the competition? Last I checked, it has been outsold by the PS3 on a worldwide level every single month this year, and it's been outsold by the PS3 in the USA for the majority of months this year. It only had a small resurgence last month when it sold barely 10,000 units more than the PS3 did in America, and when you're talking hundreds of thousands of units, that is a very small margin of victory. When compared to the Wii, the two systems are in a virtual tie. So I don't see how anyone can claim the 360 is dominating, when it isn't even dominating the PS3 much less the fact that it's still taking a gigantic beating by the Wii.

With €400 you can get an Elite [€250], with a headset, HDMI cable, 120gb HD, Fable/Gears [€60], Gold membership account [€30] and you'll still have €60 remaining.
The PS3 [€400] + a game [€60] + headset [€?)

The PS3 is just too damn expensive. I wonder how this thing keeps selling.

Price is NOT the only factor which decides a purchace. =)
leila01, I agree, PS3 is kinda expensive here in Europe, compared to x360.
Price - High Quality console + blu-ray player = media center -> a Family Thing. :)
And 250 for elite? SO far it was 300 and 240 for 60Gb model.

Anyway, there are some positive points about PS3:
1) reliable
2) quiet
3) free online, home
4) build in wi-fi
5) without pain rechargeable controllers
6) blu-ray movies
7) freely changeable hdd
8) disc scratching free system
9) habitual controller for ps2 crowd

Depends on how you define high quality game console. The 360 is the highest quality gaming experience period. The most high quality titles+largest game library+best online service= highest quality gaming experience

The price, the amount of media, and award winning controller design are just a bonus.
CrazzyMan  +   2624d ago
"The 360 is the highest quality gaming experience period. The most high quality titles+largest game library+best online service= highest quality gaming experience " - That`s WHY x360 was OUSTOLD by PS3 for almost whole year in all regions?

That make sense.)) Or maybe just consumers DON`T agree with your personal opinion since they are buying more PS3s, then x360s. It`s all about games, isn`t it? :)
It`s a consumer, who DECIDES.

actually most will work, i have a new console and the new hardware is much quieter and cooler then my launch pro console, RRoD is pretty much a thing of the past to most 360 owners so its time to just move on.

i actually hope my launch pro console dies before the warranty is up so i can get the new components put in, but yes the new consoles are a huge improvement in both noise and heat, new one doesnt get any warmer then the ps3.
KiddyBrownTurd  +   2624d ago

out of all those games, only God of War 3 has the potential to be AAA. and that's if it doesn't suck now that Jaffe AND Balrog are off the team.

needs to pray that the xbox360 outsells the PS3 every single month as of the date the price cut is in effect.

If not, Sony can go for the kill.
KingDizzi  +   2625d ago
No praying will help MS, the only area where the price cut can have a continuous effect on consoles ales is NA. In Japan and the EU I can see the increase in sales due to a price drop for a month max but thats it.

If anything I guarantee that the PS3 will outsell the 360 in EU and Japan for the rest of the year, you should see the huge FIFA 09 PS3 advert and also WKC releasing in December 25th.
egm_hiphopgamer  +   2625d ago
if for some reason 360 can't extend the lead over ps3 at a 199 price tag then MS may be in trouble as far as the console wars go because ps3 will eventually become a 199 price and that will be a big blow to MS but i doubt you'll see a 199 price tag on PS3 in 2009 so MS still has tons of breathing room even leading up to there next system
leila01  +   2625d ago
As far as they keep making games for my 360 I'm fine. It doesn't really matters to me if it outsells the PS3 or not.

thewhoopimen  +   2625d ago
Strong Buy
Not that I disagree with the 360 price drop and software lineup as a very strong buy incentive, but what will the 360 have this holiday season that will appeal to the mass consumer? I think gow2 and fable 2 are great games but... they are niche. I still think the wii will squeak past the 360 this holiday season.
egm_hiphopgamer  +   2625d ago
I understand your theory but people stand in line for gears of war, what nintendo has that people will line up for besides smash bros which is already out you see what i mean the hype alone is gonna make it a mass market appeal, keep in mind sometimes people buy stuff just to say they have it and gears is a game like that because of it's popularity
The Lazy One  +   2625d ago
the non-exclusives and the update...
will work in favor of the 360.

By far the strongest lineup this year is in the 3rd party non-exclusive games. When people go to the store and see these amazing games (Rage, PoP, End War, lotsa EA sports games, etc.), which play the same on a $199 console as a $399 console, it's hard to argue with.

Then it still has a strong exclusive lineup, and a lot of new features in the update for the casual gamer (XNA community games, growing XBLA library, Xbox Primetime, Avatars, etc.).

To say it still won't appeal at this price point with the features coming is ignorance.

Summary: 360 is getting plenty of casual and hardcore content, and 3rd party multi platform titles work in favor of the cheapest system.
thewhoopimen  +   2625d ago
good point Hiphop but I still think you and a lot of analysts miss the key word "casual gamer" or lets make it even more mainstream term, "casual consumer." The MASS casual consumer has NO IDEA what is new or not in terms of game release dates, platform exclusive, etc. They look at what everyone else has, whats fun for family, and what people talk about. Sure Gears is going to be a big topic, but moms and dads are definitely going to shy away from this controversial title. No one knows about fable. Besides Gears, there is nothing family friendly per se except viva pinata and part 2.

Wii has the numbers, Wii has the cool controller, Wii has more family friendly games. Wii games will be cheaper b/c of the older age of the titles. Wii is similarly priced, will will win like "tickle me elmos" win.
edhe  +   2625d ago
The cheap-as 360 doesn't just play exclusive games you know. Any multiplatform system seller will sell on the 360, due to the price differential.

I'd imagine force unleashed bundles on the 360 arcade would've sold more than on the ps3.
NewSchoolGamer  +   2625d ago
The question
is will the difference in sales be enough to keep MS on top.

Still, MS can just claim victory in 2010 with their new xbox. Heck the new xbox rumors are already arriving.

No gamer should have to worry about the BR drive failing either but it will. Regardless whether you get a PS3 or 360 customers have an option to get a replacement plan based on where they purchased. Simple process.

Failing BluRay drives are insignificant compared to the millions who have received RROD and Microsoft refused service back in 2007.Ignorance is not bliss so I hope you learn that lesson
leila01  +   2625d ago
RROD is a thing of the past and you know it. Just as "PS3 has no games" is also a thing of the past.
My 360 is more than a year old (HDMI 360) and it never overheats.
Lets assume your console eventually gets the RROD, that won't happen the first day anyway. So you can buy a 360 now, enjoy the games and IF it dies, Microsoft will repair it for FREE with free shipping. And if you still want to get a backup 360, just get the Arcade unit the day your 360 dies on you.

mboojigga  +   2624d ago
Doesn't matter how high it is or low it is for a product failure. We have been in a age of consumer electronics to know that the possibility is still there. That is why I bought a replacement plan when I bought a launch 360 before we knew about the RROD. I have 2 360's and a PS3. I am not one of the millions to have experienced RROD. I have a launch 360 with a Dec 05 and a Oct 07 Halo 3 model.
I have a PS3 80gig from Nov 07. Got a replacement plan on that just in case not vs because of those specific issues. My mindset was better to be safe than sorry for whatever may happen.

I will always stay to my belief that software sells hardware and i think LBP and RE2 will move ton of them, way more that Fable 2(lol) and Gears of War 2 will. So yes 360 will outsell PS3 in NA but it wont be enormous difference as 360 fanboys are expecting.
360 was also cheaper than PS3 earlier this year and was outsold almost every month by PS3. This is mine unbiased opinion.

for this holiday season it's possible in my opinion because of hype and game collection from ps3 and 360 but now that 360 is 199 that means you have a true next generation system being cheaper than the wii and people will start to see that the wii isn't worth the price it's at as much any more because 360 offers alot more for a console at a cheaper price

With real time clouds and music (that you can choose from your HDD).. Nothing Free can under deliver.. Its a cool lil App and its interesting to read all the articles from around the Globe.. I can only imagine what it will have with future updates.. Maybe streaming news or new clips.. Or stock ticker and sports ticker.. Trust me for what they said it was gonna be they delivered just that.. For free.. The fact that 360 offers nothing close to it and people pay for it.. Is just plain sad

... Ya I just caught that.. Thats my bad.. but I still stand by my comment.. Just not its not at you.. Its with you

Cute comment
First off, free things can underdeliver. Don't' make me throw out the free food that is undercooked, so you get food poisoning analogy. If you listen to him he sounds disappointed in it. I am not dogging on the app, I am dogging on the person who says one thing then less than 2 minutes later contradicts himself. I noticed that you didn't comment on my whole post though.... I wonder why?

Google apps are free for everyone just like PSN and Life with Playstation. The only difference is that Google apps don't suck. The "you can't complain about something that is free"-excuse is retarded. Why not make an optional service that is better than PSN and let people who have higher demands pay for it? Kinda like Xbox Live...

when was the last time microsofts won a console war?
can't remember huh?

You must be looking forward to meeting all the homo noobs.
I bet you can't wait to get a achievement for world class useless whatever
you are. What are you? A critic? A cheerleader? A microsoft porch monkey?

Hiphopgamer should phuck you up. You're duma$$ is backing the phasing out DVD.
you would be a tool if you were useful but what's the point of your meaningless show.
you think you got a career in the console war? You realize its gonna be another 8 years of
you asking & arguing about what's better dont you.
Its not that interesting. In real life gamers talk about the console war for 5 minutes & then its back to playing games.
you are boring. When was the last time you worked a real job?

At least hiphopgamer has a future. He calls it & get into it in full detail.
you?! Hah dont make me laugh! You are not needed. You should stay behind
the scenes. I got my ps3 & its all I need. Its not going no where. Go play with little
whiteboys you pervert. You got no skill.

You are broke, stupid & your girl is a hoe.
Please stop wasting peoples time. I'm in new York.
I'm puerto rican & Dominican. I will phuck you up!

You piece of sh••! You are uncomfortable in your own skin & you know it.
that's why yo mamma dont like you. I'm gonna see to it that you quit poppin
sh11T! That has nothing to do with us.
Theres only one champion with a track record. You best change you're tune
on playstation soon or prepare yourself for a phuckN warzone all your best friends & cousins can't handle
you noobtastical waste of space. Keep on keeping on & watch.

first of all, i only see one comment by tordavis here, and it wasn't even directed at HipHopGamer (update: found it in the gamerzone)

but i'm not even going to argue with the rest of the crap you just spewed, as i'm sure you'll just reply with an irrelevant comment like "your girl is a hoe," like you said to tordavis

what i am going to mention, however, is this fine piece of comedy you wrote:

"In real life gamers talk about the console war for 5 minutes & then its back to playing games."

really? 5 minutes? is that why you have been on this site for months (years?) over several accounts, commenting about the console war? by your logic, no one here at N4G are gamers, especially you...

ha, Microsoft have fired all their price drop bullets for at least 2 years

now they can only sit back and pray if sales don't match expectations and the PS3 starts outselling it again... because we know they won't have any system pushing games after Gears for a loooooong time(and even Gears isn't that much of a system) pusher

and you can tell MS knows that Sony has an incredible line-up coming up
heyheyhey  +   2625d ago
i think the PS3 won't win the holiday season war against the 360 in NA.... it will in EU and definitely Japan though

i guess Sony have to try and combat the 360's cut with great games until they are ready to cut the price themselves.... because when they do, MS won't be able to counter it now that they've fired all their price cut ammo
felidae  +   2625d ago
nice show but i don't like how you talk about Sony like they're god or something.

i also think that the PS3 is the better system (for me) but the 360 has some nice games, too.

for me, PS3 exclusives are way beyond anything on the 360.
MAGNUM-RAM  +   2625d ago
Sony's line up is incredible!
its all about games, saving money & getting a all in one value package.
tordavis must shop at old navy because he thinks thier jeans are the best quality.

Yo! Hip hop gamer ! Why do you mess with that dude? He is holding you back!
you sound like you from staten island. When the hellz are you gonna drop that weight?

Tordavis aint even your opposite. He's just a lamo . I really want to fight him but if you say to chill
& leave him alone I might not do it unless you pop him in the mouth for me!
I'm 29 & I will never forget who is the best of all time.

Can you please tell me how many rrod s tordavis has had?
I'm serving that lil biotch every chance I get.
everytime you talk he tries to sound like you are a retard.
in new York his punani a$$ would get knocked.

Please break his face & give his xbox360 the rrod update thanks.

I can see SDF in action again. Every damn article is plagued by these ps3 fanboys. This year again has been failure for ps3 like last 2. You guys can only pray that your savior kz2 will bring it out of this downward spiral.

On Topic. Kudos to MS for beating the beast playstation brand this gen even with less than steller hardware reliability and discontinuation of xbox. THere are more gamers out there embracing 360 over ps3 as we speak and will continue to do so for forseeable future.

If you are not mentally challenged and love games than you shouldnt be without a 360 this holiday season...

Psst MS where is my freebie...

Edit: fanboy n#1 below: You guys have spoiled this site and now are in each and every 360 news. You get the hell out and go and troll your own articles.

Nothing is going to stop the wii from being 1st
People seem to forget that soccor mom's are buying game consoles where as before console were bought by gamers and as christmas gifts. PS3 is selling at the same rate as the PS2. Just look at who's buying a wii. I bought a wii for my kids, it's a fun little system, I would never trade my ps3 for one. I could of got 360 but why? wii makes for a better second system
GiantEnemyCrab  +   2624d ago
I can think of one thing and that is supply. Nintendo seems to be constantly struggling to meet demand even this far into its life. Hopefully people will see the 360 as a great alternative if they can't find a Wii.

Cool Cool....

Don't mind the fools on this site at least HipHopGamer is out doing something and actually goes and plays these games etc....all most of you guys do is look at pics and vids and think that you can be critics.

Don't hate.....Appreciate!
DA_SHREDDER  +   2625d ago
You guys just need to chill out
Lets just wait and see what happens. The only thing that is gonna come out of this subject is everyone dissing each other. Who cares if the 360 sells more? Sony is gonna produce even more exclusives to justify its higher price tag, and in the end its the consumers that win out of this battle. Honestly Im glad to see the 360 drop its price. That means Sony will have to do something even bigger just to entice the rest of the market's consumers. Like cross game video chat perhaps?

Also, its not gonna matter how much the 360 cost. God of War3, MAG, Motorstorm 2, LBP, and FF 13 vs. is a good enough reason for anybody to buy a ps3. Lets not forget that Sony is just gonna keep building up the franchises that have already proven themselves as best of the best such as Uncharted 2, MLB the show 09, and a new Ratchet and Clank are sure to be out by the end of next year. Pretty soon people are gonna be wondering why they haven't bought a ps3 yet? Even xbox fanboys are gonna have nothing but nice things to say about the ps3. Now that I said that, I can get back to playing some Pure on my ps3. Jesus this game is freakin wicked, and extremely challenging.

Yo, Magnum. I doubt you could beat up Tor. Hes a 6"5 beast. He would probably just pick you up and take a big bite out of you like you was a hamburger out of a happy meal basket.
