Most of the gamers who own an Xbox 360 are loaded with cash. Is that right?
It's not hardcore enough!
i found the 360 way too hardcore with Reach and Gears that's why i got a ps3 ... i like casual games more
More BS from "Jaffe's B1tch"
In my opinion, one thing is true and that is that xbox 360 seriously needs to start showing some new, high-end games. Recently sony has been on a roll with the release of Heavy Rain, God Of War 3 followed by the announcements of LBP2, Killzone 3 All I see being pushed at the mo is another Halo, for which I have also been watching footage and think the graphics are very mediocre, I'm sure the 360 can do better graphics, so why don't devs push it?
"All I see being pushed at the mo is another Halo" Since January of 2010 Mass Effect 2 Splinter Cell: Conviction Alan Wake You are really out of the loop when it comes to MS and their game releases.
If that's true why are a lot of them complaining about the Natal $150 rumor?
That's a good point. I however will be buying Natal even if the price is $150 and I don't think I have a lot of Money...or maybe I do.
Pure flamebait, just watch this rocket up the n4g list. however i refuse to approve!
Yep its gonna shoot up quicker than a crack addict. The comments of people arguing in these articles are more enjoyable to read than article themselves sometimes lol.
LOOOL...if you call modern warfare 2 hardcore...than yea! let the 10 years old kids play! i think its stupid to say "this console is for the really hardcore players"...even the wii can be seen as hardcore
Dam right they are loaded. Why else would they buy multiple xbox 360 after each break?
PC owns the "Elite of gaming" (at least graphically) and the most "Hardcore" fans. Would you buy a 360 or PS3 if it cost thousands? THAT'S hardcore lol.
Hmmm. ''The Elite Of Gaming''. Interesting articles like always from gamesthirst, they really need some visitors, looks like they are desperate.
For online gaming I agree just look at the numbers for Halo, MW2, and BFBC online. Hell people are still playng the crap out of Rainbow Six, Shadowrun, and Ghost Recon.
this has to be the biggest joke i ever seen on n4g wow the xbox 360 is to hardcore and is the elite of gaming?sorry but once you get games like Ar tonelico III atelier rorona god of war 3 which to me is more fun then gears and halo final fantasy 14 white knight chronicles heavy rain disgaea3 metal gear soild 4 then i may believe you as for now this Article is really stupid why would this dude even say such a thing?and i can keep going on about how the ps3 still has more great games coming..
"Most of the gamers who own an Xbox 360 are loaded with cash. Is that right?" *looks into card balance online* ^_^' Well I guess I'm different from the usual 360 owners then?
The 360 crowd is more mainstream than hardcore. Sure there are 'elite' gamers on the 360, but all they play are Halo and CoD. Yet, they hold no weight against the real pros: PC gamers. The PS3 crowd are true gamers. Usually they're from the 80's and have developed a taste for new, ground breaking experiences akin to the games found in the SNES/PSOne era. Listening to half-a-dozen podcasts full of closet-360 fanboys you'll hear them criticize already certified classics like God of War 3 and Killzone 2 as 'same old' while they continue on the Halo Reach, Gears of War 3 bandwagon like these titles are 'new' and 'innovative'. Proof 360 gamers only enjoy what they're good at: twitch shooters--the 'bro' genre. That hardly makes them the 'elite' of gaming, more like mindless consumers who publishers love to placate. Hey bro, lets play some Halo.
They've been too focused on slashing Sony's throats by taking Sony affiliated IPs(Tekken,Final Fantasy,GTA,Metal Gear etc) while not concentrating on making something new to be affiliated with Xbox.Meanwhile Sony has been looking to keep it fresh with new IPs and their 1st parties (LBP,Uncharted,God of War 3,Modnation etc).Microsoft's tactics got them ahead in sales early but look at it now,they've taken most of what they could get their hands on and are left struggling for innovation.If there's any doubt about that just look at what 360 fans are hyped for, ANOTHER HALO AND ANOTHER GEARS -_-
ModNation is not a 1st Party Project. Believe it or not, ModNation Racers was proyected to be Multiplatform, PS3 and Xbox 360.
as to what constitutes a hardcore gamer? There seems like there could be so many permutations of hardcore gamer, that I believe quantifying it down to one all encompassing definition would be daunting and unlikely to ever reach a consensus amongst the gaming populace (kudos to us if we ever achieve it). I bought my 360 because of GRAW 2 and Halo 3 and to a lesser but still important degree the controller. I played FPS's on the PC from Doom to Outlaws by Lucas Arts to HaloCE to Tremulous and everything in between, and the 360 just seemed like a nice gaming addition to my household and an excellent fit for me. It now has the central point in my family's entertainment time and I do not regret a single second of the choice to make the purchase, nor any subsequent purchases. Does that make me hardcore, I personally do not believe so, but hey Pachter could be right once.
