Eyebrows remain unraised as MS Japan chief has a pop at Sony's next-gen console
well yeah. it doesn't take some CEO whose probably in danger of losing his job to tell us that. i'm curious though: couldn't Mr. Sensui have used his resources better by figuring out a way to save the 360 in Japan instead of telling the world what it already knows?
"Gaming is the essential role of Xbox 360 and the experience is in no way inferior to any other console."
thats the only direct quote from him nothing about sony and nothing about pricing what utter bs this "news" is just shlt stirring
This is such news. I didnt know this before he said it, I mean now that Microsoft has said it I mean im totally going to rethink it! NOT! Sounds like someones scared. I'll pass on the cheap machine!
just keep crying fear you past fear your future its over chump box
I am fearing. While I sit and see the release list of titles MS is dropping between now and Jan 2007. Wait a minute, I am fearing I don't have enough money to buy them all. And playing my NEWGEN console all night long with my n4g gaming Clan buddies on XBL. Good times.... Good times.
dbl post. kill me mods.
that PS3 fridge is going to eat you like a giant crab! damn sony and their traps!
what does that have to do with this article? do i have to remind you to "Keep your comments relevant to the news story."
take a look at the photo next to the story...
don't really agree with the caveat. but i STILL can't help but find it kinda funny lol.
Friendly jab - This is the next useage of the CELL processors. Controlling your next-gen refridgerators. They did say it will do other things besides gaming.
I agree with you zypher, I agree. THis crappy 360 fan is always say crap about the PS3. This goes for all 360 fans ''WASTE OF TIME'' That's all they are. Type BS about the PS3 is not gonna change anything. Desperite idiots. THis is another reason why me nor ANY of my friends don't have a spinning shoe box with an X on it. Because its worthless! We bought high end PCs. PC and PS3 are the 2 best for this next gen
i though PS3 was a PC?
or is that more SONY bullsh1t?
I want to correct you. There is no next-gen there is NEW-gen the "next-gen" has started already dispite Ken's comments about it doesnt start until Sony says so. MS Launched a next-gen already so it has started. You really need to do a little research and see the PS3 IS catching alot of heat, it IS still not 100% done, have you seen a PS3 totally set up and running with its power block? Have you seen running gamecode of these games like MotorStorm, MGS4, Warhawk? Nope, and neither have the 360 fans. BUT the 360 fans have seen running code of Gears of War, and many other games which are running and are released. When they canvas developers and 65% say it is over priced, when about 40% says they are more excited to develop for the 360, when 65% say the dev tools for the PS33 are meerly average (current issue of GI), when PSM (a PS magazine) runs an article saying is it really worth the price as a cover story and spend 2 pages saying why it isn't then 2 saying why it is, when EDGE (a very high end UK gaming magazine says that the games are unimpressive).. The proponderance of evidence says it is the Sony fanbois who have bought into Sony's hype machine not the 360 fans who are dillusional. I am not saying don't show brand loyalty, it is your money... be happy the PS3 is coming... Don't sit here and tell me that it is cure cancer and welcome a whole new world of gaming for $200 more. It simply won't do it in the next 2 years. Yes, I will probibly buy one because I like the MGS series it is a great series, Lair looks interesating if it lives up to the CGI trailers they continue to show for it. Remember Occum's Razor.. The easiest solution is usually right. Is it that the whole world has a problem with the PS3 or the fact that the PS3 is not that much better than the 360? I leave you to answer that for yourself as a consumer and a brand loyalist. I look at the evidence and say you know what, it is a gaming console and Sony is getting a little arrogant and losing sight of the GAMING in Gaming Console, to let you run a WiFi network, BluRay movies, and all the other gadgets they are selling their GAMING console with. 360 is a gaming console with movie and media extensions, but firmly places itself as a gam9ing console first.

just had 2 get a pc just in case ur blu-ray drives stops loading??
he already has a PC idiot, what do you think he's using to type these comments online? hahhaah
so you have a PC too just incase your 360 overheats?
hey ofcourse this guy MS Japan chief will have a dig at the ps3, because at then end no one in japan is buying the 360.
and dc rider u dont know anything about blu-ray so shut up. u only seen one blur ray player, the pioneer one and the player had problems some people even say the ps3 blu ray player is better than the stand alone pionerr one.
2 reasons i WON'T be getting the 360.
1.i do want to get a x-box 360 but i am being put off from a couple of fanboys like dc rider the real deal, landofsand and the mart. because of their constant bashing of the ps3 24 hours a day, i really think the 360 is not that entertaining.
2. most of 360 games are coming to pc almost 80% and i will be playing them online for free but i do want to experience rumble and x-box live. so i had an 75% chance before for getting the 360 now its only 35%.
I looked at the picture and realized... for the money it should dispence ice and water too!
Now it definatley won't be getting my money!
why are u being like that bro??
listen, get down to gamestation, get the premium 360 with cod2, and prey and lets get BUSY!!!!!
I'LL BURY U CO*KROACHES!!!
lol. If you do get it come to the Game group website and play with an open mind and we will see if you still have the same hatred for the system. Siunce i doubt you can muster an honest opinion without SOny prejudices I doubt it will happen. Hell I will be on your team.
I feel the 360 is a great system that appeals to certain types of gamers, but if you buy one just to spite Sony/PS3 than I think you made a bad decision. If you like the games 360 has then why not buy it. I feel I made a mistake in getting a 360 because I got one to play Next-gen games A.S.A.P.
Now I feel I should have waited because the games I like are on PS3. Origional games like Heavenly Sword, MGS4, GT, RFOM, and especially FFXIII are what I want.
I am in no way bashing M$ or 360 but the games on 360 just don't appeal to me and to be fair, that's just my opinion and I DID give M$ a fair chance to earn my money and my time. I think 360 is suffering from a lot of overhyping from 360 fanboys, because they seem to hype EVERY game on the system. An exapmle of that is GRAW which is a great game but some people will/have overhyped it into something it never was or intended to be. Let's just hope that us gamers learn to accept games for what they are with out all the crazy overhyping (like GOW is getting, It's getting to the point where the game with never live up to the hype). Can't we just enjoy the games for what they are and give our honest reviews without adding all the crazy fanboy extra's to the converstaion?
I and I am sure alot of the other xbox fan crew have respect for that. It is your money and you tried a 360 it seems. If it does not have what you want by all means don't spend your money. The problem i have is people who think Xbox will not be there in 5 years it simply isn't true. MS and SOny are both about hype. The dynamic of the xbox fan is hardcore gamers who play Halo, GRAW, Splinter Cell.. FPS hardcore gamers, who play thousands of games of Halo 2 a year. I like some of the titles you mentioned MGS first of all, God of war was a great game, FF not as much as when VII but it is still a decent series. I have been a gamer since Atari days. There will come a day when Playstation and XBox are gone and I will be 50 years old like Hardcore Granny still gaming and listening to death metal. Only it will be Hardcore Grandpa in my case. I always try to leave any comment with a good luck with youre system whatever it might be and I extend that to you. I WANT happy gamers.. Because happy gamers who play a Wii, 360 or PS3 are good for gaming in general. What we really should be slammeing here are companies like EA who put out subpar titles to earn a buck. Not SOny or Nintendo or MS who put out wonderful machines for EA to develop crappy titles for. I was a raging 360 fanboi I give honest reviews of games and even the 360 system her and on my website. yes I like my 360 alot, I will like Wii for the emmulation it will perform and I am sure the PS3 will have interesting titles that i will buy it for... Guitar Heros 3, MGS, Lair and a few others will come along I am sure.
The hype is a regular part of business. Yes it gets ouyt of control here ALOT. SOmetimes I am to blame also but I have a fair amount of respect to you for your post. I hope your PS3 works and is what you want from a new-gen console. GAME ON!
for responding in a mature fashion. I see no reason why fans of all three systems can not converstate without all the personal attacks.(yes, I have been guilty of this) I have been spending time on other sites (such as Ps3forums.com) and now I have a whole different perspective. I am excited about this Next-Gen and even though the 360 wasn't for me I do know that many other people like it and are having fun with it and more importantly I respect that. It's a good time to be a gamer so let enjoy this no matter what system you prefer, just enjoy it!
Dude, whoever you are...you have the best comments. Can you tell "the real deal" to chill out. I don't have that much street cred on this site...and you do. Help the little guy a lil bit please?
I agree that the PS3 is expensive, but it's definitely worth it! I'm gonna reserve it for freakin' 150$...and it's SO WORTH IT! I'm dead serious. The 360 IS a good system, but i want more than just FPS's...i want a new shadow of the colossus, more DMC, and more MGS. I can't WAIT for Resistance though...it'll keep my FPS interests too. I just want versatility...if ya catch m'drift...
oh and can everyone give "dc rider 360" "the real deal" and "the land of sand" a HUGE round of applause for bashing all us non-biased gamers that couldn't give a rat's arse about their unhealthy relationship with the 360?
oh yeah, that REALLY sums up you and 'The Truth'...
