In a perfect world; you would only have to buy one console to play the games you want to play. Would Microsoft, Sony and Nintendo make more money if they made one console? Maybe, maybe not.
With the lack of competition we would get shady games with no dynamic features. But in the unattainable perfect world...yes this system would be cute.
dosnt someone have the name psWii60 on here? ... lol ohwell yeh it would be ok, except no one bringing out all the stocks for the consumer to buy there product which would result in not having such things as XboxLIVE PSN, Marketplace, LIVE messenger (May 7th), BluRay, HD DVD etc.
competition is GREAT for these things, unfortinatly competition isnt always good but nothing is perfect.
Hurray for name recongnition!
So yeah it would be awesome for a console to have everything on one console but it would cost waaaaaaay to much and would confuse almost anyone with the different companies trying to make one or the other for said system and try to incorporate all into it... ugh what a nightmare. Isn't this something similar idea to the "Phantom"?
really dumb and really bad concept art. whould a pswii60 really have the xbox look. if you cant tell this site is pretty 360 bias then you arent looking at this site. not that big of a problem but it sure as hell is evident in most news posts that they are pushing 360. bad thing or good thing i really doubt it matters.
i just want to say that i dont think this site is biased towards the Xbox 360, people/members submit the news, there has been ALOT of bad and good news for all systems being PS3, Xbox 360, PS2, Xbox, PSP, PC etc so as WE submit the news maybe there is just more news/attension on the Xbox 360 then the PS3 at this moment in time.
that picture has all the characteristics of a Wii+360, where is the PS3's fine paint job and finish?
but i guess i have to have all three.
yeah completion would not be as great, though there would probably be more competition amongst developers.
But still, less completion is worse.
I agree with ASSASSYN 360 on this one. This seems like it would create an instant monopoly on the whole industry, kinda like the cable companies. There is only one provider of a certain service, it can create less variety in what they provide.
Basic economics tell you that this would probably not be a good idea for consumers, but seeing as how this will probably never happen anytime soon, people who find this appealing can dream.
On a side note, there is a blog posted here that discusses this same issue, you should all read it.
I discussed this on my blog ( http://www.n4g.com/up/3069/...
Personally I don't believe the 'competition' argument dismisses the idea of a single hardware platform.
I mentioned a few examples in the blog post so i wont mention them again but basically all I am saying is that if you took away competition between hardware suppliers, you would heighten competition between game developers. Direct competition between the major game releases would benefit users as they would not be restricted by their console choice.
I don't really think it is possible to create this environment but i don't think you can dismiss it without discussing possible outcomes.
Mayb a design competition could make this a lil bit of *harmless* fun???
I bet theres tons of fans that could get a cool, sleek intergrated design if they have an incentive?
I like the thought behind it, but the design leaves something lacking. I'm all for the 360 controler, and sixaxis is a nice touch. The size of the Wii is just perfect for setting up or taking on the go. Miniturizing the PS3 hardware to fit in side? An egineers night are, not to mention the heat it would create. The Wi-Fi or LAN option sounds awesome, And the Xbox guide interface is still tops to me. The 1080p output is grand, but Why only Blu-ray? I'm sorry but if were going for a Jack of all trades here, lets blowit out, and give it dual format support. (If only for the sake of the Matrix)ANd last bu not least. Memory cards are for pansies. USB thumbdrives should become the defacto portable memory storage device for all consoles, and PC. The software can decern which files are whose, and space limitations are gone. And of course keep the PS3 paint job, but offer us some shiny colors, and of course a clear case.
I would prefer wii + PS3. and MS just involved on the software development only, or dx10 support ... not sure about the OS reliability, but sure this is going to be interesting, but if no competitor... what do you think they gonna put the price tag on this console??
wii mote, bluray, and dx10 ... plus CELL (not sure houw great the cell is for the game, but looks promising)
lets take faboysm apart but of the three consoles the wii is the ugliest and with that x-box desing look even worst. atleast they shoulded have put the sixaxis controller becouse there is nothing of the ps3 there.
i wouldent be interested..
I own all 3 but i like it that way better but if this were the only choice i'd take the insides of the PS3 with the outside shape of 360 yet shiny piano black color of PS3 add some of the channels from the Wii but use a xbox live - playstion home hybrid for online. Combine Eyetoy with Wiimote for motion sensitive games but still have an option of sixaxis with Immersion's new next gen rumble.
heh, i think you guys missed the question at the end, but its ok. It seems no matter what we do, competition will always be in our heads. I wrote the column to be light hearted and fun. Also a lot of people are asking, "where is the ps3 design inside the image?". Well when i was wasting my time making the picture i found, that the only external design of the PS3 i really like is the finish and the ports in the back. There was no way of showing the ports, and honestly, I found myself wasting too much time on a picture. Its alright tho, it was fun writing.
You'd really have to be a complete fool (or fanboy...your choice) to not want the benefit of all three consoles. Nonetheless, I do have to agree that the idea of one "picture-perfect" console is completely noid just because of the sheer nature of consoles. PS 3 plays PS 3 games, Xbox plays Xbox games, and Nintendo plays Wii games. The choice is what makes this console thing so interesting, plus everyone has to make a decison about something anyways so this is nothing different. Still a PSWii60.... the countless possibilities.
erm this is a kool discussion n such but wers the news this aint to relevant to anythin
why is there a pic of the 360
Thank goodness they kept the 360 controller. I couldn't stand the PS3 one. It wouldn't be that bad if they just switched the left analog and the d-pad so that the analog is the main source of movement. I realize many like the PlayStation controller, to each his own. I just think that the joystick lets you move much more freely, plus you can control how fast you move by how hard you press.
I also think that they should keep the Cell processor, but have the 360's graphics card if that is possible.
sonys hardware microsofts software nintendos innovation.
I would switch Microsoft software with Microsoft online services (Xbox Live, because it owns).
thanks pLaystation for actually answering. hah. I just thought, the Sony Dpad replacing the 360's. That would be great. The dpad on the 360 controller is screwy.
id buy that for a dollar
they have no need of a 180 graphic chip RSX was built to merge with the cell it would be incompatible and wouldnt be able to produce cutscene and beyond graphics in game so please when you dont know what you are talking about refrain from posting
