Leading developers in Japan have been offering their opinions on Wii, PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 in the new issue of Famitsu. Next-gen.biz has posted some of the highlights.
I could have said all that but you don't see me on the multi. platform new, do? DO YOU! lol :)
Alot of mix feelings about all three consoles from developers. But one thing that caught my attention was how Kouji Okada President of GAIA said that too many developers will be confused about motion controls and they will be flooded with gimmicks. To me he considers that technology to be a gimmick like alot of people have been stating.
Outlaw i think what you say is not true. the only one who say always something negative are you and some other xbox fans.
Well thats your opinion and trust me I respect it. I don't hate Sony from at all. I just don't like how they are going about business this time around. So I say something about them and automaticlly I'm a XRAT, XBUG or anything you guys could come up with. Read my postings. I never insulted anybody first for their opinions. But I do defend myself when attact. So thats just the way it is and you could believe what you want.
Achira, he was replying to a post that from literally out of nowhere started labeling people Xbugs. That whole thing is retarded, and notice that his post is no longer readable. SSJ 04 is always starting flame wars.
This is why I like hearing from GD's. Its like asking a real musician what music he likes. Unbiased oppinion with no fanboy bs included. Bottom line is each console has its guns loaded with pretty good ammo. Just play the games and have fun.
SO what do you call when claiming that most peoples see the PS3 controller as a gimmick? if that is not attacting than i guess your word is pure truth... LOL how could you say that i always attact peoples when you go around in every article and claiming Oh Sony wont even sell, oh Sony is fake, they lie all the time, Ooh please Sony don't give me more Bull. And at the same time your M$ system promise B/C and now they said No one really care about it anyways so there would be no use of importing more code for it.
Hey moron.. Show me on top that I said Sony is a gimmick, that technology is also being made for the Wii. But you are so quick to pull the trigger you automatically believe I'm speaking about Sony. Read what I said. I said that type of technology I didn't say Sony. Boy you need to wipe your mouth off you have a little brown stuff on them. Anything else you want to point out.
See? this is why bashing a console is moronic. Its becoming more and more obvious that the Ps3 is still going to be in first place in this current console war, maybe not by the margin it led in the last generation but 1st none the less.Nintendo and MS are going to be close in this one. Wait till the ps3 drops to $300 thats when things will start to really pick up.
"To me he considers that technology to be a gimmick like alot of people have been stating."
that section that you were stating was about Sony controller, and you use the word "that technology" tell me how is that word not implying Sony Controller when you said that Technology. And that technology is in the section of Sony Controller discusion. And right now of today only Sony Controller hold "THAT TECHNOLOGY" so if you were not speaking of Sony conroller and it sensor than i guess you were speaking of an up coming Controller that might be develop by third party. Please before calling anyone Moron or Stupid, you better read and understand your own writing. how could you call others stupid when you dont even know what you had just type? haha lol
There was no section in the article for the ps3 so you are not making sense. Also in the topic your talking about before he brings up the controllers technology (and I quote) He says. Then there is the Wii. The games are playable and sharp. They're friendly, Though I imagine they'd get kind of boring after awhile (end Quote). Anything else smarty.
"Kouji Okada President of GAIA said that too many developers will be confused about motion controls and they will be flooded with gimmicks. To me he considers that technology to be a gimmick like alot of people have been stating."
Sound like he is talking about all motion sensor controllers, ie Wii/PS3. So you can't really say he was just saying PS3, cause Wii uses Motion as well. Also I know you keep talling BS about MS, and how Sony is better. BUT Sony Laptops run using MS products correct? So it seams like Sony needs MS. Just pointing out the facts. Go ahead and flame me now, but this is coming from a nonbias gamer. Who has the 360 and is #6 in orders for the PS3.
You're very good at making Sony's bull sound good if you worked for Sony as PR you would do good; even I would buy a PS3. Are you German?
Nothin wrong with being German:)
Thats exactly what I have been telling SSJ04. But He just wants to conitinue. The technology that was talk about was for both Wii/PS3. So really nobody should be flaming you. Also the computer topic was a good point. BOY, Do I love my XP. Hey SSJ, What OS You're using?
outlwas its your right to say your opinion, but its obviously that you try to impact people by saying that sony is not consumerfriendly. and i say competition is hard and they have to be selfconfident. and sony lies never they only couldn hold their promises. why dont they include 2 hdmi ??? i can say why. they released that when they include another hdmi it would be more expensive. and then such people like you crie that its tooooo expensive. 2 hdmi would be good, but do we need them so strong ??? no.
on the other side ms is selfconfident also. i dislike ms because it is the company who wants the money from the comsumers at most. i dont want to support them because they are not userfriendly !!! read a current report of backwart campatibility. its so obvious that they dont care about the costumer. so dont blame sony, do blame ms !!!
I just right about what I feel. Not because I'm a FanBoy of a certain company. You bring up how MS wants people's money. Well I hate to break that bad news to you but all companies big or small wants our money thats just the way things are. Lets not start making Sony look like a Angel. I do have Sony products in my house but I feel this time around they're going about it all the wrong ways. They dig their own graves not me.
Disc Read Error
Owners of early PS2 models purchased from launch until spring 2002 commonly reported faulty optical drives in their consoles. The earliest drives suffered from a constantly misaligning laser lens but later defects were the result of a shift in voltage to the laser itself. The first problem was relatively easy to remedy, but it required opening the machine's casing and tweaking a cog that controlled the lens' distance from the discs it was supposed to read, thus voiding the warranty. This usually didn't matter, as in most cases the warranty already had expired by the time such problems began to appear. The second fix involved the use of an oscillator. As time went on, more and more drives began breaking down and a class action lawsuit was filed against Sony. They had the option of either paying the requested fines in damages, or offering free repair and replacements at their discretion.  Sony chose the latter and, until February 2005, they honored their agreement. In the UK owners suffering from this flaw must pay Sony £50 (as of spring 2005) to get their machines repaired.
A second lawsuit is being filed against Sony for all of the above, plus claims that defective hardware is damaging media discs. The first hearings are set to commence in April and May, 2005. More information: PS2 Settlement
m$ has already made all the good games B/C. have you guys seen the list. it is huge. anyway, the only one big game that they have not included is ESPN football...thank wonderful EA for that one.
i have a 360 and i am too busy playing next generation games anyway. haven't even thought about my old games.
if i do and there is actually one not on the b/c list. i can go to my back bedroom and fire up my old xbox which still works from launch.
Geez, I thought the reason for Dusty making the new site was that all this idiotic arguing could be finished with. Cant you see you none of you can win an argument over consoles. Its all down to opinion and you cant change someone elses opinion. Anyway, it was interesting to hear what developers are thinking. And ill have to agree, motion sensing technology is a bit of a gimmck and will get very boring very quickly. I think Nintendo are taking a big risk. As for Sony, I cant really see a whole lot of developers bothering to implement it after some time.
I was not diss-in Germans,Im tring to figure out ssj accent.lol
SSJ accent is STUPID.lol... I cant understand anything he post's! He is pro Sony he hates all XBOX stuff no matter what! I wish he would post on PS3 only articles!!
Even though this articles shows up on the 360, PS3, and Wii site, all the comments are linked together no matter which site you access the article from. So really nobody is spamming the other site's system they don't like. Be careful who you report as a spammer because the comments are unified.
Anyone know when the dashboard update is? Sry to go offtopic but when is it?
You're not the only one I thought by now we would have saw a post about it.
No this site has exclusive stories or you can wait for the story to be bumped off the home page.
Firt you were bashing the PS3 controller and now you try to play it off by sayind that it was about the wii and the ps3... WOW dude how many time are you going to flip your word around... lol you should stop before you gone on any longer with that pointless though of your... haha
This is pointless. I see you just love rambling on about nothing. When you could prove your case than talk to me . Besides that just move on to another topic. If you notice you was the one edited on top not me. So lets just cut this whole nonsense. If you want to write one more time be my guess. I wont respond.
Well first post being registered. Normally posted as Gamer unregistered but guess someone already taken that so this will be my name from now on.
Anyways on topic it sounds to me from what I read out of the articles that most like all the systems with the PS3 having a slight more interest. I agree with most of the developers reason of their opinions because hey they are there to make money, they don't really need to have a preference. To get gun ho in this topic of xbox, wii, or ps3 on a multi thread topic is stupid. Regardless of your preference.
SSJ: The way I read the gimmick was the motion gimmick regardless of tilt action or a device you have to be in one triangled area to use. So outlaw made a comment that does not need a PS3 is better comment.
I'm not into the fanboisms here, but will say I'm still leaning heavily towards the PS3 as my console of choice for personal gaming reasons and I got the wife to say yes :)
Please don't flame me because my opinion of gaming is different than yours. Thanks!!
when I came here yesterday and try to register as outlaw they said that the name was taking. I figure later that they move my registration from XBOXNEWS over to here. So I really didn't need to register again. Try punching in your password with your name gamer unregistered and see if that was the problem.
Even being native to speaking English I can never form sentences properly every time .. lol .. What I meant was that I always posted as an unregistered user; typed in the name of Gamer in previous posts to the ps3today.com site to clarify, but thanks for trying to help me out. I really could have had an idiot moment like that. It wouldn't be unlike me to do that. lol
edited to fix poor sentences again
welcome to this site. It's pretty cool.
Hey if you want you could use the Avatar update for pictures you have on your PC to put in those little boxes.
M$ had the motion sensing controller first. it was implemented in one of their sidewinder joysticks for the PC. it wasnt a big hit and it bombed. M$ was smart not to include that stuff in their controller. its hard enough dealing with 2 sticks, a d-pad and 11 buttons.
Yeah I remember the old Microsoft Sidewinder Pro controller. I had one and luckily there was a button to turn the sensor OFF. Back then I played many PC games online through the MSN Gaming Zone (Yes MS had a unified PC online for thousands of games back in 1998) and the sensor really flopped for anybody using it. Especially online, you don't mess around with gimmicky sensors if you're looking for accuracy. The main game I played... Motocross Madness (1 & 2). It sucks for race simulator games as well.
JUST IGNORE SSJ, i don't even second guess it. I read maybe one ham headed broken english sentence and stop. If you ignore him he'll loose the will to post.
SSJ can't spell nor speak english. His post's make no sense and are so fanboyish!!
i think ssj is not a idiot. he only tries to defend the ps3. i think its unacceptable how the fanboys are coming here and bashing the ps3 news.its annoying that people sit all the day at the computer, and the only thing they have to say is that sony lied, ms is better, ps3 sucks, controller sucks, bd is betamax. i think this people are very stupid. they should stop this sh!t and peolpe like ssj will not have reason to be so rough. but i think he has the right to say what he thinks.
You have it backwards it's ssj attacking 360 every chance he gets, and logging on a web site can be done from anywere at anytime and takes 1 minute to comment. He's an IDIOT trust my all his opinions are based on facts from Sony and fanboyism, it's like trusting President Bush. He more than likey; had the same passion for the PS2 saying it was more powerful and MS would not make it to the 2nd generation.
I'm not sure if you people realize this but if you take a look at almost all of the Sony news that is being posted on this site, almost all of the news post have more "Lame" votes than "cool" votes. It's ovious to me that most of the xbox fanboys jump in to rate the news as lame and down almost every Sony relate news posted.
If you look at the xbox360 news being posted it's even more ovious that PS3 fans don't even bother going through the hastle of rating xbox360 news. Why one might ask? because we don't care for it.
Anyone posting a positive comment on the PS3 is automaticly marked as "Lame" by a bunch of 13 year old xbox fanboys.
I thought I would end up liking the site more, but it turns out, all it is now is a bunch of xbox fanboys running an insult rampage left and right because the PS3 news is easy to access.
In conclusion most of the 360 fans that come on here are only here for one reason, and that is to bully people around.
Yeah every sony news has more lame votes than cool because the xbox fans hate on ps3
PS3 news is all bad on Sony's part it's not us. no Rumble, it's not good news, PS3 will replace PC's; is a down right stupid comment, making fans pay $300 dollars more in just 5 years is crazzy, Saying PS3 is the only next-gen console but coping the competion is just a dumb remark, saying the 360 is a xbox 1.5 and not next-gen is dumb while the 360 is revolutionizing the gaming world. I could go on and on, it would be dumb if Sony fanboys talked trash because most have some sense and they got their fingers crossed that Sony won't let them down ;again!. How could any body hate on revolutionary feature's, service's and game's, but yet some do and that's when they get flamed.
Or it could be that over 5 million people have 360's and millions converted from Sony and people know better now. LOL
I just think the Sony boys are realizing how much negative publicity the PS3 is getting and they're scared that their precious little blu-ray movie console isn't worth it, so they have to put the blame somewhere. That blame is on the the 360 boys. Grow up Sony boys. Your little system will do great, but so will it's competition...deal with it.
As soon as dude said 360's a Xbox 1.5 you knew they were worried, got to brain wash them early.
I think you'll find that the 360 is converting no-one
I think you'll find that the people who bought a 360 are people who previously had an xbox
I think you'll find that there are very very few playstation converts, and the ones who did convert did so cos they wanted a quick fix of next gen graphics. But then they find that the 360 offers no new innovative way of playing games and the gameplay of 360 games are like the gameplay of old xbox games. So i think they'll all end up buying a ps3 anyway
what does any of this have to do with converting. a lot of people had more than one, or all 3 systems last time. everybody isn't a blind faith follower of one or the other. most of my friends that have 360 have or have had a ps2. some people just get what they want regardless. i don't own a ps2 but i wanted to play shadow of the colossus, so i borrowed a friends and bought the game. i didn't say, "oh, this looks cool, but since it's on ps2 instead of xbox it must suck." if something is good, it's good, regardless of the platform. like someone said earlier in the thread, it's all opinion.
HOW DID YOU GUYS GET PICTURES ON YOUR PROFILES??
and up losd pics on you're PC
Is it tuff in here?
cheeto u got style
I am very happy to hear a lot of positive news from the developers for the playstation 3.
As a Japanese male from Osaka, I can tell you that it is not suprising that all of the developers prefer Sony or the Wii. Over here in Japan there is a huge bias towards American made products. I do not like the fact that my some of my people have this bias. All it does is hurt the gaming industry. Japan used to have the largest video game market, but now the U.S. does. It is really unfortunate that alot of my friends and family wont ever play Halo, Fable, PGR, anything from EA or tons of excellent games, because they are made by foreigners and therefore are lower quality games. We are the same way with our automobiles, and other electronics.
msfanbouy when you are a japanese then i am bill gates.
Kouji Okada is founder and president of Gaia, who released Jewel Summoner on PSP this January and is also the creator of the now-legendary Megami Tensei series of RPGs. He says the biggest surprise of E3 was "definitely the price of the PS3. As a Blu-Ray player it's cheap; as a game console, it's expensive. You might enjoy the games you get, though really. Is it a 'game machine' or an 'entertainment machine'? Then there's the Wii. The games are playable and sharp. They're friendly, though I imagine they'd get kind of boring after a while."
Exactly. I could not have summed it up better myself. It all depends on how one looks at the system for his or her own needs. If you want HD content and blu-ray, the PS3 is a steal. If you only want next generation gaming, then perhaps you are better suited for a 360 or Wii. Finally, and thanks to this site, there is the ability to analyze the systems instead of trashing other people.
If you want a good blu ray player, get a stand alone one. Media players of the Playstation are know to be sh*tty and they go kaputt often.
Just remember the PS2 problems... THey put cheapass hardware drives in it.
So it's no option at all. Not as a gaming console, not as a videoplayer, and especially als Blu Ray could easily turn into Betaray
TheMart, I've tried to stay away from being pro one console and anti another (excluding the Wii) as best as possible. You continue though to try and put down the PS3 no matter what. You have no idea how good the PS3's blu-ray player will be. All we have is that it will play such discs. If it indeed it goes KAPUT, then you can post back and lecture me.
What's funnier is that you complain about the PS3's drive when it has more than the 360's, and little is known about how good the blu-ray drive is. The PS3's blu-ray has HDMI which is more to be said about the upcoming 360 add-on.
In my profile, i mention that i try to be non biased, but some xbox fanboys chat so much BS sometimes, i find myself becoming completely biased for the playstation
No matter what "specs" or what "facts" u fanboys dig up, just cut the crap! YOU HAVEN'T PLAYED THE PS3! No-one can say a thing about it if they haven't played it
I hope that when the ps3 comes out, u fanboys will be open minded enough to see the good things about it, and see how good a console its actually endeavoring to be, and will be
To achieve that enormous capacity, Blu-ray's pits are not only tinier but also the disc's recording layer is much closer to the disc surface. Although HD-DVD's potential capacity is significantly less than Blu-ray's staggering 50 GB capability, HD-DVD has one large advantage. Replicators (the manufacturers of the actual high-def discs) can economically put HD DVDs into production with only minor modifications to existing DVD pressing machinery. Blu-ray, on the other hand, requires totally new retooling, plus new manufacturing lines and presses, so there is a huge potential capital expense for Blu-ray disc manufacturers.
HD DVD also has one other advantage over Blu-ray. A hybrid HD DVD is possible, with a regular DVD movie version on one side of the disc and the High-Def version on the flip side, a feature that retailers and consumers would applaud.
Custumizing the movie you watch will destroy all that gets in the way of HD-DVD / Its more than likely the reason they sell out in places like Japan. Once they get the technoligy rolling in will be hard to stop.
I don't think we've seen the knockout blow for HD-DVD, even though the Paramount and Warner announcements have taken quite a bit of wind out of the sails of HD-DVD."
I believe HD-DVD will still have an edge, given that products using this format and HD-DVD's are currently are on store shelves before Blu-ray-based hardware. "I think if they are able to show a 30 percent price advantage over Blu-ray products, [HD-DVD], in my view, still has a good chance to keep their format viable,"
So Sony fans chill out for a few and lick on my Super Monkey Ballzz for a few, you to ssj04 you little hore.
How can you NOT be excited about blu-ray? The storage capacity will give the developers the freedom to make truly remarkable games. Think to yourself how many times we gamers said "Yeah it was a great game, but to damn short" Now develpopers will have no excuse to say they were limited by the capacity of the DVD9. That alone is something every gamer should be excited about no matter what console your pulling for.
The fact it plays HD movies too is just a plus for all us gamers. The 360 didn't even try to add anything truly New to this "Next-Gen" to me MS took the "safe route" which all us gamers should be mad about. I paid 400$ for a 360 which offers nothing truly new to me.
Truth be told the 360 is what really gets me excited about the Ps3. 360 failed me by not providing something new, by this I mean change the way we play and enjoy games. They didn't raise the bar and did not take use of the whole year they had to themselves. I mean gamers please ask yourself what has the 360 given us this year they had all to themselves? My answer is nothing... I paid my 400$ a year ago and I have to wait til wii and PS3 get released to get what I paid for a year ago? M$ didnt take me to the Next-Gen like they would like to believe, I didnt want a upgraded Xbox I wanted something I could get excited to play, dammit I just wanted more!!! The games dont take gaming to a new level... they are just graphical updates to last GEN and we as gamers should not let any companies get away with this. If 360 does win this time around I think it will be dark days ahead for us gamers, because MS is obviously playing it safe(and charging more for less) while sony and nintendo at least are trying new things.
p.s. I didnt give my opinions of the wii beacuse I just cant imagine me and my friends playing games with that controller, it just seems alittle crazy to me. I will have to see and play it for myself before I go out and buy it. But I love what nintendo is offering us gamers with there change in direction ^*^.
It sounds stupid when people say that PS3 is truly next-gen just because PS3 has Blu-ray in it, it's not worth another word.
The fact that your saying nothing at all. If that is your opinion then please support your claim. Is your own opinion not worth another word, I mean I dont understand why you even post that here? You might as well say that you understand and from some point agree with what I said.......
Im posting my thoeries and my opinion bases on facts. If you don't see im for HD-DVD off those posts, thats not my problem. All your doing is ranting on and on how you hate MS, and im the one not saying anything. It really does sound like fanboy ranting, every post is how Sony's PS3 is better. GIVE IT A REST you're just attacking my post because it's not in favor of Sony and that's a fact. PS3 is better are you happy now, don't ever! respond to my post again.
lol Im not a fanboy, but honestly MS has upset me and I'm sorry if my opinion of Ms as of late is somewhat negative... I just like to play games is all and I did/do not mean to offend anyone I was just stating what I honestly feel.
How can I be a fanboy when I own a damn 360? I wish they would have had that HD DVD out of the box a blu-ray HD DVD console war would have made everything alot more intersting.
Anyways sorry if I ruffled your feathers I did not mean to anger you at all
He's just mad because MISSY and I; kicked his ass last night in GRAW, don't even try i had to many beers either i had some too lol.
