sounds like a good idea to add a motion controller to the PS2 since it already has over 100 million users out there.... but yeah, then that means they would be losing focus on the ps3, phuck it, add a motion sensor onto that sucker too.

if you can't beat'em, join'em

(but yeah, then that means they would be losing focus on the ps3, phuck it, add a motion sensor onto that sucker too.)

The ps3 controller already has a motion sensor or an accelorometer which detects velocity in a given vector. Were have you been since nov. 06?

So what will Nintendo do? Since all of its console displays are only in 480i or 480p?

Will the U.S. Government Bankrupt the Nintendo?

Will Nintendo release a new console?

Will Nintendo release a converter?

Will Wii owners keep thier Tv's?

lol all of these questions are valid and way more intresting yet....

NO ONE IS ASKING THEM. Hmm Lets not wait, "until 1999 to Handle the Y2K bugg"
Sony's stock probs, Microsoft hardware blames,

Fail in comparison to what the Wii will have to go through in North America in a few years.

on US televisions anytime soon. I don't know where you got that from, what your referring to is the US switching from a analog tv signal to a digital signal. That doesn't make it in high def and that has nothing to do with the A/V cables that connect the Wii to your tv. Two separate things, unless you know a tv station that will be broadcasting games that are playable through a digital tuner on you tv that completely bypasses the system itself. Besides you can buy a convertor for changing the signal from digital back to analog for your old tv's.

You can't add a Wiimote-like device to a PS2 and expect that it would be compatible with the existing library. Each game would need to be specifically coded and I'm not sure how many companies would want to put resources into its already budget priced (used) titles. It's possible that a genre like racing could accept a similar control scheme to use on different games but there would be too many variations in platformers, shooters, sports, puzzles, RPGs, etc. to generalize a 'one scheme fits each genre' approach. Therefore, the main appeal of a new PS2 (a budget priced library) would be lost.

Not to mention that this would put the PS3 in competition with 2 other Sony consoles, the PS2 and the, uh, PS-Wii.

Oh my god omega, you actually believe that? your probly one of those pundits that believe the Digital switch mandate means that programming can only be transmited in HIGH DEF, and that because of this HDTV sales will rise 100% when the tv statations finally switch over to digital only broadcast *laughs*

Simply put analog tvs, and 480i signals will be around for a god 5-7 years...and by that time sony, microsoft and nintendo will have released new systems.

I don't think PS3 needs to worry about the Wii. I think the Wii is too different and it's long gone ahead of them. Wii is really for a different market. You'll notice that the fanboys don't really care about the Wii, it's always more about PS3 VS 360.

2 billion smacks. I could single handedly fix all broke Xbox 360's. Buy a small army and become a super villain in an underwater utopia. And still have enough money left over to research and build a hand held railgun. I might do a little genetic manipulation too. But I wonder if my biology could take the shock. I don't want to experience...some sort of bioshock!? It might create one heck of a mass effect on society if it gets crazy and I get loose in the world.

again? People who post this BS should be slaped in the face. This website has turned into a political hause.

ALIEN3947d ago

What the hell nintendo is going to do in the next 2 years? I have to admit that WII is doing great, but that is not going to last forever, I mean PS3 is like a BENTLY next to a HONDA CIVIC. Come on people this kind of [email protected]# should not be tolerated in this website. This is sad.
