Anyone else get the sense that this generation of consoles is played out? Xbox is in trouble, PlayStation 3 is coming into its own with Killzone 2, and meanwhile there's talk about the future.
I think Killzone 2 will be the Playstation 3 title that officially shuts up two of the most vocal groups of Ps3 haters; those who still claim Ps3 has no good games, and those who claim the 360 is graphically equal to the Ps3. Therefore, I think the impact of Killzone 2 will be quite interesting.
^^^ Can't argue with you there. Though I think all three consoles (yes, all three, which includes the Wii) have a lot of potential left in them, I think that people are going to stop giving the 360 so much favor. 2009-2010 is when the PS3 outshines the competition, but beyond that, who knows? Maybe the Wii will take the hardcore gaming community by storm just like the original NES did. All IMO, of course.
until KZ2 i agree with lee
"In terms of its game library I’m not sure there’s much left to be excited about." /goes back to playing Lost & Damned which I've been thinking about going back to since I stopped playing last night. Oh and that is an exclusive because I wouldn't mention any multiplatform games because you cannot be excited for those am I right? Oh and I love how he says Netflix is the sole reason the 360 is still in the game. So freakin tired of flamebait articles telling 360 gamers they have nothing to be excited about. Lame. Now disgree away and tell me why I have nothing to be excited about on the 360.
^^^ the same can be said about the ps3 is doomed articles. but no matter how many people point out, they will never stop. baiting fanboys gets them hits.
I win. next
why is the Xbox-360 in trouble, we have games like Alan Wake and DeusX3 to name but a few, DeusX3 will be a classic, just watch when the details start to come through, I think people have gone a bit silly when it comes to new games, all we ever mention is KZ2 and Gears 2 but if we actually looked we would see a vast amount of games on the horizon. For the record Flower and LBP look like classics, now if I can say that why do some of you guys keep forgetting games like Alan Wake and DeusX3, and what about Huxley? if they achieve all they want to achieve that game could be brilliant.
Because they desperately are looking for a way to undercut the advancement of MS in the gaming industry. Regardless of the opinions formulated about the 360 these nuts neglect the fact that the original xbox live adopters stayed committed to the 360 when it launched but where are the millions of people who purchased the ps2. They found xbox-live and wii and neglected the ps3 for a year. They are 360 owners buying and average of 8 games per system. The xbox had a barely existing library compared to the ps2 and it retained the fans. The xbox 360 has a dynamic and lasting library yet everyone is expected to jump ship or something. 360 generates the best game sales to console ratio ever yet people are going to quit it. O K!
Yeah, there's plenty to look forward to for all three consoles and that's before MS announce their usual couple of E3 surprises OR Sony do the same(no news on MAG, T&C, Warhawk2 etc, etc). However, i'm starting to fear that both Huxley on 360 and Wardevil on PS3 will NEVER arrive as news gets less and less frequent or promising.
I own both consoles and I for one am excited about all the new games coming out. I do favor the PS3 over the 360 but I still do love playing Halo 3 and COD4 on the 360 and also I am getting left 4 dead because all my friends play it. It does not matter to me who has better games this year because I win either way so let the mountain of games come crashing down because my bank account is screaming even now from pre-ordering Killzone 2.
Why do people buy games. Doesn't it make more sense to rent them and send them back when your finish.
The Xbox is not in Trouble.To many good game's like StarOcean / Alan Wake or Ninja Blade not to mention Halo War's Or Halo odst.Do you think at around 30mill the 360 has something to prove or does the PS3 has what it take's to compete against the 360.(Bubble's if im Right)
