Can Sony's PlayStation 3 ever catch up with Nintendo's Wii? Should video games be classified as addictive? And what's the best game of 2007 so far?
The best game so far that i have PLAYED is GOW.
And yes, the ps3 can catch up to the wii, it wont be easy but is still not too late. Games are not addictive, is all about self control. *grabs GOW*
is that God O.W. or Gears O.W.
God is better but whats your take?
obviously he meant God of War
GOD OF WAR!!!
I don't think Sony are in the same race as Nintendo.
yet they both trying to sell gaming hardware.
but one is a nice piece of hardware and the another, please...
$6 candy vs $2 candy
which one would u buy?
6$ if it's bigger and sweeter tasting and takes longer to melt in your mouth :P.
He meant Gow. Go figure. GOW is the first actual nextgen title IMHO
Microsoft can be quite random at times. lol
Ps. could someone give me my 6th bubble back, i return all.
Correction the real question would be.
will the wii ever catch up to the PS2 since the wii is a last gen. game cube with a horrible gimmick and games that cant even be compare to PS2 tittles.
Where PS3 fails, fall back on PS2 to make an argument.
you take out the words of my mouth...i'm tottally with you. the only purpose of the wii is mercantilism: low-price-low-quality-fast-sel ling consoles with low-price-low-quality-fast-sel ling games...
You know let's get some things straight. The only reason why the 360 has sold 11 milion as of now is because Microsoft dropped your precious Xbox last gen too early. That's why many of you dipsh!ts migrated to the 360 because you had now where else to go (it's not likey for you xbots to go to another system). And you say Microsoft gives you "choice".
Many PS2 owner (me included) are still enjoying their system because it's stil standing strong, but over 1 or 2 years when the system becomes obsolete and the PS3 is at an affordable price you'll see the jump. And you Xbots will have all migrated to the 360 by that time of course and still be outnumbered by the PS3 then. It's even more pathetic that after 1,5 year the Xbox only sold 11 milion. While the PS3 stands at almost 4 milion (and the system is just out for 7 months and only 3 months here in Europe!).
The 360 "succes" as you call it, came from the failure of the Xbox. Giving Microsoft an early start, but even with that early start they overlooked the hardware department and all gave you crap hardware.
Don't be surprised when over a few years Xbox 360 consoles will instead of giving you the "Ring of Death" give you the "Explode of Annihilation" after too many repairs and games that the hardware can't handel. You say to PS3 owners that they don't have games to play(even though that some good ones have already released with many more to come THIS year), you can only play 10 minutes before your 360 craps out on you. So what's better..........I think the one that start with P and ends with laystation.
And please don't comment back saying "W-well...uh m-my Xbox is still from launch." Just don't it will only make you look stupid.
wii is so outdated now. everyone i ask who has a wii or has played it is like it's fun, but the fun doesn't last too long. wii has last gen ps2 graphics and is just another version of gamecube.
I thought they didn't even consider Wii as their competition. Funny when you're in the third place then you realize that you need to go for the 2nd place first rather then trying to bypass it.
its funny you got all those disagrees...but how many articles could you paste and copy with sony exc stating that Nintendo was not even in the same class as sony...(to be fair and balanced...microsoft too.)
it was a microsoft and sony game only...i think all of us hardcores was surprised by the sucess of the Wii.
It's just a matter of price that is keeping the wii ahead right now. I know for a fact if the PS3 was $250 they would be selling more than the wii so that goes to anyone that says the wii is a better gaming experiance because it's not. Price is the only reason it's selling so well.
You're absolutely right, if all three consoles were the same price, the ps3 would sell a lot more. WHY? because of past experiences. The PS1 and PS2 sold over 100 million units each worldwide. I know a lot of people are still waiting for a PS3 price drop. The PS3 will bounce back, it takes time, they are not gonna do it overnight. I say the PS3 will beat all other consoles by January 2009. And looking how there are so many stories involving Sony and its PS3, it just shows that PS3 still creates a buzz.
i think the consumers who buy a wii at least 50%(not we...that we are always reading the news of games) think that the console is the same of ps3 (cus it is nex gen) with best price and nice controllers... and don't realize that the other 2 consoles are much better experience... i think wii will have the same faith of dreamcast
How is PS3 a better gaming experience right now when there are no games?
And how is it that only PS3 will have a price drop in time to come?
Wii v. PS3 will be a repeat of DS v. PSP. The little guy will win because its gaming concept appeals to a broader audience.
when I went to pick up Sigma today I asked my friendly neighborhood GameStop manager (Jerry) about the impending PS3 pricedrop. He just gave me a sly grin and shook his head with a sparkle in his eye. I asked him for juicy tidbits, but he swears he doesn't know anything. Ahhh.... it was fun at least.
I think people in the know realize that SNE's pretty much got everything else there. The game faucet is starting to yield a steady stream of good games and when the inevitable $$$$$$ drop comes ~ watch out.
Remember: the PlayStation 3 has only been out for roughly 7.53 months. Just my words =]
the wii has been out the same amount of time.. ur point about how long its been out is not exactly a good one..
also the EBGAMES people are pretty useless.. they don't know anything.. let him smile and twinkle all he wants but i doubt he knows any news..
SOny is already loosing money on every console they sell so a price drop may happen EVENTUALLY but i wouldn't hold my breath.. and u picked up SIGMA for i'm guessing PS3 so how would the price drop affect you? u already paid up the arse so even if u get a price drop it will do nothing for u and when the games come i will be convinced.. until then MS and WII will own..
First of all the time it has been out [PS3] is *relevant since the more equally realized system (360) has been out since Autumn '05. The Wii doesn't even figure into that comparison chart Einstein since it would be like comparing an Audemars Piguet with a freaking Casio (same goes for PS3 vs. 360 if you're talking strictly build quality). As far as your opinion, of course everyone is entitled, but I'm not sure if your mommy ever told you this: but just because you believe something doesn't make you right or the end all be all. And please, don't act like you don't know what I'm talking about either ~ because you do.
Yeah Ninty's been around since I was still asking permission to stay up late, but one thing's for sure, when they pissed off 'ol Uncle Kenny and company they've felt a steady entry of black leather shoes in their arseholes for the past 12 years. SNE's been a thorn in Mario's porn-stache since the gamecube came out and took a giant Horse-$hit on department store shelves world-wide. If you didn't have the handheld (*yawn) market holding you up during those tough times, you might be Uncle Bill's b*tch right now, but he's not the world's richest anymore so maybe instinct would tell him otherwise.
You should be humble that the Wii is selling so good right now if you're an actual owner and that time that you spend playing it with your girlfriend or boyfriend should be cherished and your anger should be left for playing difficult and challenging games on the Wii; not spilled out onto forum pages trying to ambush me. =]

HA - I don't know what loosing is, but aren't you trying to figure me out? I have more than one PS3 brainiac. I also have more than one room and one shower in my home Mr. Know it All. Besides if SNE's 'loosing" money and offering free online, a bulletproof console, and a pricedrop ~ what kind of company are they and which do you support? If I buy more Ps3's what matter of it is yours? As far as what y0ur "convinced" of........"MS and WII will own.." - congratulations ~ you formed your first opinion. Everyone give M_Prime a round of applause...(like Henry in Good Fellas) he just formed his first opinion while trying to attack me....awwww......isn't that cute?[e/sarcasm].
Back up you lugubrious dolt.
Even with a price drop which isn't going to happen for a long time.. It's a pipedream..
But it doesn't really matter to me. I still won't get a Wii.
NO..Sony cannot catch up,they are too far behind.They have nothing i want to play,atleast not until maybe Warhawk...Too expensive and no good Exclusives.
Best game i've played so far...Prolly Gow,or Paper Mario.
I think Video games should be Classified as fun.IMO<-------

Let me put it in a way your dumb @ss understands....WII R DUN!!!!
You know, I could care less if 10 million senior citizens, 10 million moms and 10 million babys, little kids and little girls get a Wii. The thing is, if 30 million hardcore/traditional gamers get a Wii, and 40 million get a PS3; or let's put them even on the hardcore side, both 30 million; I could care LESS if the Wii is 50 million away.
The thing is, the situation won't be more favorable for Wii on the games I want because they have the same amount of audience I belong to as PS3; and ask hardcore gamers if they rather play a PS3 or a Wii game. So basically, PS3 and Wii would get the same attention from developers, except of course, PS3 has the edge since a hardcore gamer will likely have both a PS3 (or 360, or both) and a Wii, and will rather play the more expensive console; so in the end, I don't give a shi7 if PS3 is behind the Wii.
The PS3 is what I need, the PS3 has a larger first party studio than the Wii, and it'll satisfy more of my needs than the Wii even if Nintendo's first party were as big as Sony's, since their efforts will be focused on their newfound "blue oceans". And that is, of course, being too optimistic on the Wii (assuming the fad will never die out).
The PS3, and sometimes 360 and/or PC, are the indicated consoles for me, regardless of which platform has the biggest installed base. To me, it is the Wii that needs catching up, and I doubt it ever will. Its technology just won't satisfy me, even if it surpasses PS2 in sales, even if it has games, because I'm sure as hell those games won't have the interesting aspects of next-gen, which are more than just shiny graphics.
If there is a prize to be won for best technological wonder in a console, then perhaps your argument might hold some water. Unfortunately, the only prizes to be won in the console business are sales, profits and market share, so your philosophical take on this issue is really quite misplaced.
has anyone ever thought that because the wii attracts new people into gaming that would never care about games else wise they are creating a new extention of the market. like they have said they are targeting non hardcore gamers. but when these casual games get more involved and BECOME GAMERS they will realize there is more to games than JUST A WIIMOTE! they will purchase another console. by that time the leading GAMING console will make a sell to them. if it is xbox that is ahead then that is what they will get and if sony is ahead that is what they will get. but i must say...when ps2 gamers and wii gamers go hi-def the ps3 will have its games and xbox will have lived out its life to the fullest but to the fullest ends soon considering the systems proven limitations and sonys cell processor's design.
Most important question: Is Sony the fat or the slim one?
