Net-Asia, a Tokyo-based market researcher, just released some new findings in regards to Japanese gaming trends. The poll surveyed Japanese men and women, aged 10-40, that still actively game and own a video game console.
360 is not in the survey since it is nobody over there haha.
My brain hurt trying to read that.
Shouldn't you be out playing golf and spending my childrens childrens life savings to bail some faceless corporation out?
^ Bitter McCain fan lulz.
lol, spot on, repubs are so butt hurt these days, it's a lot of fun to watch i'm not sure what is more embarrassing: - voting mccain after having voted twice for bush? - being a zealous xbot after more than 2 RRODs? ha!
That even if Obama is saving "faceless corporations", if any one is more "pro-corporation" than the other that is McCain, he was extremely pro-liberalist. You know what's the worst though? He changed his tune right after the financial crisis began. He is a hypocrite. At least Obama never changed his mind nor had a physically attractive retard as his running mate just to try to gain some attention.
Study also says 360 fans are butt hurt by Obama's comment.
Uncharted is probably the only game I recommend on that console, and maybe Killzone 2 for that FPS itch. Other than that stick with 360 for the whole package with the best visuals. http://www.youtube.com/watc...
Resistance, Ratchet and Clank, Infamous, Metal Gear Solid 4, Gran Turismo 5, Killzone 2, Final Fantasy 13 Versus, God of War 3, LittleBigPlanet, Uncharted, Heavy Rain, MAG, White Knight Chronicles, Kingdom Hearts 3 (possibly), WarHawk, L.A. Noire, Quantum Theory, and Ninja Gaiden 2 Sigma. Keep living in your delusions man.
The PS3 sort of HAS spoiled me when it comes to production value. For instance, thanks to MGS4, I expect all cut scene in games that I encounter to have high production value, lots of action, and full of surprises. Resistance 2 expect amazing draw distance in games and huge boss battles in most games I play.
Finally, some stats that prove who the real gamers are - 81% of PS3 owners bought the system for games, but only 52% of Wii owners did.
I'll admit, I'm a graphics whore. Sony's unmatched 1st party lineup made me this way. http://www.gamersyde.com/st...
damn you ghost.. i haven't watched this video yet, and i don't want to see it... i don't want to get hyped up so i can enjoy this game even more =P
Kamikaze: Agree, lately I've been finding myself saying to a lot of games, wow those graphics suck? Then to be brought down by some pals saying, who gives a damn? Then I get back into the game though :)
love the ps3, i just can't wait to get Gundam 00 on blu-ray, no english subs out there yet
Hey, I'll admit it. One of the reasons I bought a PS3 was because I thought it would have the most advanced and progressive technology out of all the consoles available. That, and the Blu-Ray capability as well. Part of the reason I play games is to see the progression and advancement of graphical visualization, which is why I don't own a Wii.
Whats there to say.. PS3 from Japan, 360 from America. Who are more advance in technology ? Who u think will have the best hardware for graphics and system overall ? try to be realistic b4 u hit the disagree buttons 360 trolls
so when the next microsoft or nintendo console turns out to be better what, all you guys are going to switch?
xbox made in china not america, japs only buy the best stuff, they dont settle for poor products, apple stuff is extremly popular there as its great stuff
crillyconlig Your right but who are owners of the company ? MS and that company is what ?
Well, then they picked the right console for that. :)
We're all guilty of this LOL! Oh well back to playing GTA4 till inFamous.
and they only pick a console that has uber graphics... then I'd think that says it all on the "who has better graphics, PS3 or 360?"
yep. I loved the all in one x box over the buy pieces ps2. I prefer the all in one ps3 over the buy pieces 360. I don't know if I'll ever see another legitimate (IMHO) Nintendo. I am very excited about Microsoft's next offering but it depends on if it's design is more original x box or 360 I'm confident MS won't have the same hardware issues so I'm not even considering that. If ninty makes a big boy system I'm all over it.
seeing ps3 exclusive says it all.. all u need to do is look at the beautiful game and then ur ps3 console sitting there .. u see the attention to detail.. that is how ps3 1st party games are and yes graphics matter big time in my world... gezz who doesnt wanna be WOWed..?
then why is the Wii and DS pawning every 'HD' console in sales? :/ Hmmm..
Only one million copies of Killzone 2? Where on earth do you get that from? NPD data alone shows over 600,000 in the US in the first couple of months and that's just in the US with their 8 million PS3's. There's another 13.5 million PS3's worldwide and if they're buying Killzone 2 at the same rate that puts that number probably closer to 1.5 million copies sold so far, making it the best selling exclusive released this year, which is certainly what we're seeing reflected on European and UK sales charts as well. So already after only a couple of months, Killzone 2 has catapulted into a tier that 90% of games never achieve with their sales on any console. Nice try, troll.
btw, ps3 owners, did you know that you can save a 15-second clip of videos saved in your harddrives as an icon for it? the clip will play when you are in the xmb, it's so look.. similar to the icon of games like KZ2 and MGS4.. just play a video saved in your drive, press triangle and there's one icon in the first row that look like dots and line.. that's it.. i know it's an old feature but i just notice this now and it's so cool, man
Generally, when I buy a console that belongs to the newest generation, I typically expect some kind of enhanced performance. Be it better graphics, or better digital surround sound, I want to feel like I'm buying something that's a leap forward in technology. And moving from the PS2 to the PS3 I genuinely feel that it's a great leap forward in both performance and technology. Being old enough to have a complete home theatre, my PS3 really adds a tonne of functionality including BD movies, wireless media streaming, both video and audio, and a wealth of customization options. If I want to add another, larger HDD, I can do that. For me, the PS3 is the best culmination of features and technological advancement around this term. Do I expect better graphics from a new system? Of course. Does that mean I'm a graphics whore? No. I like great graphics, don't get me wrong, but I enjoy them because I like to see just what can be eked out of the system. I like seeing how far it can be pushed. It's like anticipating a new movie coming out. But I enjoy great graphics more for the immersion factor. Great graphics can really draw you into an experience and in this generation of HD consoles, that immersion is being brought to the home theatre like never before.
Not too many PS3 game will be a "super seller" with sales in the short run because PS3 players not only have a wide variety to play with, but PS3 players also like to play more than one genre. And yes, I love superior graphics although thinking about it, I wouldn't call myself a graphics whore; that just sounds stupid.
Well you don't want to know what studies will show for must 360 owners, hahaha.
i hate how next gen games r online only and rarely split screen cod4 was fun in 2 player but the new dragonballz game was amazing i sold it right wen i found out there was no 2 player online is good but a dbz game with no 2 player is not a dbz game they better make it in the next one or Imma Hav To Cut Yo [email protected] Mang
Ugh i dunno if mods can do this but my last comment was supposed to go into the open zone, not gamer. sorries!
that explains why the wii has sold at a phenomenal rate since launch! silly people who think otherwise.
I Don't Know About The Japs, Didn't Loads Of Them Buy The Wii? I'm Quiet Sure Killzone Was Made For US & Europe & So Was Gears Of War I Didn't Find Metal Gear & Res 5 That Amazing Compared To When First Played Gears Of War Or Killzone (Metal Gear 2 At The Time Was Tho)
So just because they like good graphics this makes them "graphic whores"? Uh I'm a 360 owner, and even I think this article is retarded. I think everyone on the planet likes good graphics. If we didn't, then visuals would never improve.
I love how now that we are seeing proof that the PS3 has more capabilities, PS3 owners are now going to be called graphic whores. Now when the PS3 blows the other consoles out of the water, the excuse for being a 360 fanboy will be "Oh, they're just graphic whores. I play 360 because I play games with substance, like Halo 8...and...gears of war 6...and....well just those two."
All gamers are graphic whores. Game play is most important, But I can guarantee that if the graphics aren't on par with the game play the game probably will not get much attention. They don't have to be pushing tons of polygons to look great, but they do have to be good looking.
Yes PS3 has only good graphics every now and then, lacking good games though.
It's because the Wii and DS are selling to different audiences. The people, at least in the US, who buy the Wii because it's a Wii, not for games or anything else. The DS is getting sold to the parents of little kids who want pokeman and sonic. Those are the audiences that spend money on stupid random crap.
I love great graphics and I love great gameplay. I feel like the PS3 offers the best of both worlds.
*ding, ding, ding* We got a winner! :D The Ps3 truly delivers on all fronts.
It's true. The PS3 is the only console where you can actually experience the best of both worlds. Top notch gameplay on top with groundbreaking graphics. Play Beyond.
You forgot to add this ~ ...On top notch hardware
Just like it's closest competitor. Amazing that. I still find it ironic that the console that loses all the multiplatform comparisons, with sub-hd and aliasing as standard, is the 'graphics whore's' choice. Anyone else giggle?
Aliasing on the PS3 could use some work but sub-HD? You're on crack. PS3 has way more 60fps, 1080p games than 360...I can't even name a 360 game.
key word there is multi-plat its graphics whores choice cause you get this http://www.gamersyde.com/st... http://www.youtube.com/watc... love that clip) http://www.youtube.com/watc... instead of this........ http://www.youtube.com/watc... http://www.youtube.com/watc... trailer ever)
Maybe when more JRPG are release on the PS3 this poll will be different?
The xbox has more to offer in JRPG department I'm a JRPG whore... so I don't care on what system I play them...
Yep, that explains why they preferred the PS2 over the Xbox and why they like those niche games with poor graphics that look just like an old Super Nes game. PS3 owners aren't from the same breed from PS2 then?
obviously not, when the PS2 sold like 25 million and the PS3 has struggled to sell 3
All I can say is generations change. Was the original Xbox released in japan? I know stupid question.
The original Xbox was released in Japan, it sold under 1 million units though which many Japanese consumers claim is because of the form factor.
Exactly point proven.
NO the problem with 360 fanboys is they ALWAYS oversimplify the situation. MS logic goes like this " well the PS2 sold the most by being the cheapest and releasing a year earlier than we did, therefore if we emulate their pattern for next generation we will win" don't deny it I have heard you fanboys use this rationalization since the PS3 was a quadrapedal hominid.(i know bad geek joke) Not realizing that MS is only looking at one side of the Sony equation. The other side of the PS2 coin being it's MASSIVE library of games. Guess which direction the PS3's library is headed in?? Now don't act all butthurt when facts step on your nuts.
"Study says Japanese PS3 owners are graphics whores" no sh!t, why else would they get a ps3 in the first place, what............cause it's shinny black :/
"why else would they get a ps3 in the first place" For games. That's why the 360 wasn't mentioned in this study. NO GAEMS! LOLOLOL See... I can troll-fu too. =)
no i really i didn't mean that as an insult, the only way a person who would take that as an insult would be a person who REALLY did NOT get a ps3 for that. because if it's all about the games in plural you could just get a wii, it's cheaper.
"That's why the 360 wasn't mentioned in this study. NO GAEMS! LOLOLOL" i bet all you see in your head like 99 percent of the people here is PS3 VS 360.
"why else would they get a ps3 in the first place, what............cause it's shinny black :/ " Yep I got it for the sexy sleek jet black color :o but after playing some games qaulity started to dwindle in my mind. RFOM was the main game I have been playing for a long time til Uncharted came and blew me away with the graphics, afterwards I been expecting better and better graphics to wow me as I enjoy my games :D
@ GUNS N SWORDS, yeah I realize that you weren't trolling. 7ero H3LL, shut it, you are a troll of epic proportions. I was poking fun @ people who troll. Apparently most thought I was serious...I recommend they read all my other posts they should know I don't troll.
smart people indeed..
At least graphics are apart of every individual gamers visual-audio experience. The day that "Sales" can be enjoyed on a perceptual level will be the day all the Xbox 360 butt-buddies will stop being looked upon as desperate jacka$$es!
I love great graphics and gameplay. :) They go together.
Monster Hunter in glorious HD on the PS3. *drool*
I think the most important thing about the PS3 is its capacity to produce effects beyond good textures. It just create a sense of immersion you cant achieve only with high quality models and good textures. Imagine KZ2 w/o the amazing lighting, particles effects, physics, animations, etc. It just wouldnt be the same immersive game. Imagine, UC2 w/o the amazing animations, physics, particle effects. Imagine inFAMOUS w/o all the lighting, physics. The gameplay could be the same but the game will feel just diferent, a bit underwhelming.
While I actually love all my consoles I don't think it's any oincidence that the most revered game on Wii (SMG) also happens to be it's best looking. Good Wii games get around this with tech tricks(The Conduit)or clever artstyle and lighting(NMH and MP3). Wii owners, or Wi only gamers always say that Gameplay>graphics and to an extent they're obviously right(even if there are games on PS360 with gameplay as good and better than the vast majority f Wii titles). Howver, they also get very excited when The Conduit or, esp, MH3 release gameplay vids showing great looks. In a perfect world you get both and the fact is that most great games have both(plus a great story but there's another argument)on whatever platform and , get this, EVERYONE would really like their games to look AND play amazingly. People who say that gfx don't matter are just wrong and there's no other way round it, or would Killzone2 be a better game with Pong graphics? There are different ways to make a good looking game as I've shown but we're all fools for some eyecandy as it makes our gaming more immersive, alive and enhances gameplay itself.
mastiffchild seriously I have crysis and lots of other HD console games ported to the PC that look way better. You can say I'm a graphics whore but do I play them nope. I play quake wars and lots of Wii games and VS games. It's sort of like women if you get a good looking one but she sucks relationship wise then you stop being serious with her. That's HD console gaming, great looking but lack replay or a real challenge when you take online away. When the next gen comes all of these games will be deemed dated and no one will play them... do any of you think that is good for gaming? Gaming with no history to build on? Yes HD gaming builds on that history but really why do people actually hate these great games from the past when they remake them on the HD console? The scores are great but the fanbase doesn't really grow. Any one see that as a problem? Maybe not hey I wouldn't worry about all of that though at least SONY has some body that is getting what they wanted.
It's too bad the wii is getting a new MH game. An actual next-gen MH would be pretty sick! ...Sadly, we only get Lost Planet 2.. bleghhh.
