Nice Cornrows. Right behind the Mullet as my favorite hairstyle.

Good show me the "POW3R" of the PS3, I am still waiting for a reason to get one.....

Edit - A remote control really? Well hell that was the clincher Keyser :P

[email protected] - What else do you want?
You asked for a price cut. Sony gave it to you.

No,Actually they just went back to their original pricing structure of $599 and $499. Granted they have sweetened the pot. But it is still a lot of money $400 is the sweet spot IMO.

- You asked for games. Sony and Developers game them to you.

I have yet to see a game exclusive to the PS3 that is out now that makes me think. OMG I have to have that right now.

- You asked for the power of the ps3 to be proven. Killzone, Lair, Metal Gear Solid 4, Heavenly Sword and etc. gave it to you.

These games aren't out yet so they don't prove anything yet.

Keyser3844d ago

So the price drop, great line up of games, remote control, and 5 free bluray movies wasn't enough huh?

Man, tough crowd.

You're asking for rumble in six-axis. It's coming soon.

You wanted a top notch online experience. Sony gave it to you for free.

The List could go on and on, What else do you want? Halo 3 on the Ps3? Why?

You have better games come out.

Sometimes I think some Xbox 360 fanboys are B3yond help. That's what denial does for ya.

Follow in Bladestar's example, he you used to hate the ps3 and now even the most biased 360 fanboy is getting one.

Ps3 for the win baby!
Killzone 2 and Metal Gear Solid 4 for the Kill!!!

O yeah, Sony fans, don't forget to give Sony fans +bubbles. You all deserve them. After one of the best E3 2007 for Sony and Nintendo, Nobody can ever say you were wrong again.

Syko3844d ago

I am just saying, Blu-Ray is no incentive in my book even though I own an HDTV and a Surround system. And no game so far has shown me I need to spend an additional $500 on another system that is essentially the same as my 360. I am just saying if this game is running smooth and fast like it is being chased by the cops, Then I want to see it and if it stomps the later 360 version. Then kudos, I just don't need $1,000 of gaming systems doing the same damn thing.

Plus, If I start playing PS3 all the time what about my Gamerscore, LOL

ArduousAndy3844d ago

the corn rows and mullet combo is too much.

Someone please break it down for me.

Azures3844d ago

suck it up andy you noob.

CyberSentinel3844d ago (Edited 3844d ago )

The real reason UT3 and Haze are TIMED EXCLUSIVES this holiday season is because of Halo 3.

Ubisoft and Epic know better.

@1.10: Thats called marketing hype. They will say the same thing for the 360 version when it launches. The final product and sales will tell the real truth. Well see which one sells better.

ArduousAndy3844d ago

I think my cousin told me who you are.

clownfacemcgee3844d ago

Yea, it's called the Halo effect. And it moves everything off of the 360. It creates the kind of market that allows Halo 3 to thrive. It dominates, therefor no other games dare cross it, therefor it's the only option on the 360, therefor it dominates, therefor... You can easily see how success feeds success. Success creates hype. Hype creates success. It's self-feeding. However, it's also good for the competition, because it gives them exclusives or timed exclusives.

Man that's just cruel ;-)

"Good show me the "POW3R" of the PS3, I am still waiting for a reason to get one"

Your 'Second best haircut' gave you plenty of reasons. All the way through the video you clicked on because you were interested.

Keep on saving up and you can have both (exclamation mark)

Bebedora3844d ago

I can't give you a good reason to buy one. But if you've seen the PS3 demos of E307, then I can tell you why. And it's [email protected] hardware too. "It will last for 10 more years"....or what ever...but what ever your mindset is, it's a good piece of electronic for the price for sure! And.....I can play with it too. :)

JIN KAZAMA3844d ago

Wow, look at your pic, still got that 360 so far stuck up your put, and it looks like you are trying to shove it up there even deeper. Good job dude, keep it up.

Also Known As3844d ago

Man that Mark Rain is one of the most sizable dweebs ive ever seen. By him saying what he said i get one thing from it, that gears of war still looks better than killzone 2 if not he would have compared this game to killzone 2. why compare a your game to another if that other is not the one with the best graphics so far? and guess what he's wrong and this game will evetually come to the 360 and look even better than that

as expected from the most powerful system out.

the best console experience has been confirmed.

not only does UT support for usergenerated content for PS3 but it also supports keyboard and mouse on the ps3.

Mr VideoGames3844d ago (Edited 3844d ago )

in Graphics The XBOX 360 is a clear winner. The GPU is more powerful. It has more powerful fillrate, and far more pixel and vertex processing horsepower. Part of the reason is their choice of memory, and architecture of pixel and vertex procesing. I can't get into details but the same vertex shader will run much slower on the PS3 than the XBOX 360. The 360 also has a clever new way rendering high definition anti aliased back buffers. To accomplish the same effect on PS3 is prohibitively expensive. For this reason I think many games will have no choice but to run in non-HD resolutions on the PS3 version, use a lower quality anti aliasing technique, or do back buffer upscaling. The end result in all cases is going to be noticeably worse image quality.

NOTE: he doesn't say anything about it but next year the 360 will get UNREAL TOURNAMENT and you know it will play better when they have a chance to work on it and tweak it a little bit, PS3 JUST KEEPS PULLING MEANINGLESS thing out of there @SSES to make poeple buy PS3's in my opinion CHILDISH and PATHETIC

Adamalicious3844d ago

You honestly think that, "many games will have no choice but to run in non-HD resolutions"? I can't see any SD game EVER being released on the PS3. That's crazy.

Shadow Flare3844d ago

"In graphics, xbox 360 is the clear winner"??? Are you icelandic? Have you seen Killzone 2? The issue of ps3 games looking no better than 360 games should no longer be brought up

pwnsause3844d ago (Edited 3844d ago )


PS3 GPU+Cell Processor>360 GPU and 360 CPU out of the Water
example: watch killzone 2 again

Bebedora3844d ago

Why else do you think they harbor on an island desolated from fools?

Vash213844d ago

going along with (but not necessarily agreeing with) wat videogames4life said about the GPU's of the PS3 and 360.
i heard, and i dont remember where, that the ps3 is significantly underpowered compared to what they were originally designing it to be.
the story is that IBM and sony were tryin to get the cell processor to do it all, that is as GPU and CPU therefore cutting cost and power consumption while having insane power. apparently they failed and got Nvidia to bail them out and derived the current GPU off of high end Nvidia chips

this may be complete bs but if some1 else has heard this and can find the source it would be great

wikipedia sheds a little light as it says that the cell processor was designed to bridge the gap between CPU's and GPU's but it doesnt say much more to my level of understanding of such things

MS isn't too happy about this one.
Pete: "Yes Bill I know we can make money from it But Sony is giving it away for free."
Bill:"Your Fired"
Pete: "Damn I need to sell my stock fast and bailout"
Bill: "What did you say?"
Pete: "I sad H3 is going to rock and really help out"

Damn did Mark say exclusive (Dr Evil Voice) "Reeeaaally"

I expect some money to be thrown at this one very fast, checks accounts, 50Mill to Take two, 1.5 Billion warranty fund.
Hmm things are looking tight.
Send in the space marines they will make us some money.

dantesparda3844d ago (Edited 3844d ago )

um, 50 million wouldnt make it 1.5 billion, .5 is equalivant to 500 million (500,000,000) not 50 million (50,000,000). So 50 million would make it more like 1.05 billion (1,050,000,000)

Merovee3844d ago

But does the placement of that zero really make that much difference when it's over 1 billion? I'm thinking not so much.

Marceles3844d ago (Edited 3844d ago )

It's nice to actually have good news directly from Epic about the PS3 after the stupid Gears of War/Resistance comparisons for all this time. They're just a great dev company period.

lol @ disagrees...there's some true fanboys here. You disagree that Epic is a good dev company?

clownfacemcgee3844d ago (Edited 3844d ago )

EPIC is well... EPIC! They're an EPIC dev. The games they make are EPIC. Anyways, that's probably really annoying, but I think EPIC is one of the best devs.

My list of devs I know about and like (not necessarily in order):

Free Radical
Guerrilla Games
Naughty Dog

My list of devs I know about and dislike (not necessairly in order):

Electronic Arts
Nintendo (I really really really hate Nintendo with a fiery passion)

Thx for listening to my rant, and have a nice day. =)

wheres Konami for MGS and Valve for HL2??

xbox360migs3844d ago

OXM magazine were invited to play the 360 version of UT3 recently and reported the same thing....that the unreal engine running UT3 on 360 was looking better than gears of war (which was released a year ago!)
Gutted it's a timed exclusive though! i'm really stoked about this game and want it sooner rather than later over halo anytime.

Epic says : On the contrary it's doing better than Gears.

How will this be spun... 3,2,1

Let the spinning beggin.

PS360PCROCKS3844d ago

huh? stay with me here keywords = "Unreal and tournament" is currently running better on the PS3 than more keywords = "Gears of war" was running on the 360. This could be a myriad of reasons. They know UE3 better now, their actually smart enough to work with the PS3, the ps3 is more qualified to run all the tasks flawlessly...I don't know the reason but it's unfair to spin it negatively against the 360. My bet is that they just know UE3 better now...Gears was their first game built with it. but we will see when the 360 version comes...
