That was good reading my friend.

I can't help but notice the correct answers are the ones missing. Perhaps I can help.

1) (F) Based on the Edge review itself, what they say in the review isn't backed up by the score they gave, especially when you consider scores given to recent games in this genre. That's odd.

2) (F) Although some titles look better on the 360, some look better on the PS3. In the end, even a quick glance at metacritic reviews will probably indicate both versions to be damn near identical, and you'll find that with the majority of professional reviews because that's what developers are striving for. If you have a choice of which system to play on, how about the one with reliable hardware that doesn't charge you extra to play a game you just spent $60 on?

3) (F) No surprise here. Gabe Newell and crew all made their millions with Microsoft and it's not the first time they halfassed support for a competitors product (see Nvidia). However, they do make good games. Hopefully EA will port it, otherwise get it on the PC. Again, reliable hardware, don't have to pay extra to play.

4) (F) Fantastic! Halo is a good series. Bungie does good work. Let's just hope this expansion pack has some length and depth to it and isn't just a rehash of Halo 3.

5) (F) Not surprising. The 360 is a good system and a great deal at $200. It's not uncommon for the more expensive, more full featured devices to sell slower than the cheaper devices. No different from how Low-end TV's sell more than Hi-end TV's.

6) (F) While Bloodmask does need to get a life, what are the reasons stated in the IGN article? Perhaps they make some good points. This one is really a combination of A & C.

7) (F) Wait? Who said this? The producer? How on earth would he know? It would be cool, but I'd believe this comment more if it actually came from someone a little more involved on the tech side of things.

8) (F) Interesting comment. Games really haven't made much of a leap on the 360 since Gears came out back in 2006. I hope they deliver as I really don't have anything to play on my 360. Oh, it's coming out on the PS3? Well, I'll play it on the reliable console that doesn't charge me extra to play a game I just bought. Nevermind then.

9) (F) Well, no kidding. Of course they want the PS3 to sell more. Most of them are making almost the exact same revenue on the PS3 than on the 360 despite the 360 having almost 30% more units out there. Doesn't take a rocket scientist to know who'll be paying most of the bills in the future.

10) (F) If that's true, how come we're seeing such a quality gap develop between exclusives on each system. There must be more to the story because the real world evidence certainly doesn't seem to support that statement.

11) (F) Not surprising. Analysts said right from the start that once the PS3 grew in install base and developers started leading with the PS3 the 360 would start to show the limitations due to the lack of a standard harddrive and DVD, among other factors. Now it's happening. Either way, I'm sure both versions will do very well.

12) (F) Is this the same producer that said he wanted to go on and make erotic games now? Anyway, it's no secret the 360 is easier to develop for. Anyway, sorry your game wasn't very well received and hasn't been selling. You'll do better next time, I'm sure.

In conclusion, all his answers were incorrect. The correct answer for each of those is actually "F", which is interesting because it's also the grade I'd give Bloodmask on this pointless blog. Again trying to fan the console wars and paint all Sony fans with the same brush, rather than concede that some of them just might have a point every now and then. We are all gamers, aren't we? You should try actually debating the issues with a Sony fan sometime instead of continuing to support this ridiculous divide between some gamers.
