I would be genuinely interested to know how many of each console are actually still working and being used (offline or online), rather than the sales data, nobody can deny that the failure rate of machines plays a large part in overall sales, too many people with money invested into online services and games libraries to jump ship just because the console breaks.
If we calculate the perceived failure rate of each console and compare it to the sales data, where does that leave...
It amazes me that people still find the need to discuss this, both consoles have been on sale for over 6 years now, if you haven't already bought one then chances are you aren't going to - this gens virtually over.
Will wait till such a thing is announced before wasting time discussing it.
"picking up a 360 controller in the demo", people read in to this too much, most alpha gameplay is running on PC's, and the wireless 360 controller is about the best controller to use on a PC so it makes sense to do that.
I highly doubt backstage was a dev 360 running alpha code.
I've been playing it for the past two weeks, it doesn't look that good in person.
they haven't reviewed it yet.
Gears has higher preorders because it's the only game worth preordering for the 360 right now, where-as theres an assload for the PS3 to preorder, and not everyone can afford to buy every single one on preorder, especially not 3 months before release.
Come October 20th, compare the preorders then and you'll see a huge difference.
It has to be said, who in their right mind needs "confirmation" that the PC version of a multi platform game will look superior? it just goes without saying..
I'd say this year was a tie between Nintendo and Sony with a slight lean more towards Sony because even though we already knew about the NGP and most of us had heared about the name Vita, there was still some nice discoveries about it with regards to games.
Nintendo's console on the other hand is a major home console release, and the way they revealed it just felt like they were not sure if the hardware was going to be or look the same at release time, because they only showed...
It's the games that make a console, not the console that make the games.
I fail to see why this articles needed, we all know full well that every manufacturer has it's rampant fanboys, PlayStation, Xbox and Nintendo, and all of which have their rampant flametards who will badmouth anyone and any thing that supports the "competition".
Pointing out just one instance (i.e. PS3 fanboys reaction to a new IP going multi), is just trolling for fanboy rageviews.
I wouldn't call a bunch of script kiddies that discovered Havij "hackers".
I really have to ask what Kojima's games have to do with the success of a console.
MGS4, while a masterpiece in it's own right, just wasn't as big as a hit as Sony fans (and Sony themselves) hoped it would be.
It received heavy criticism for the long cutscenes, installation time and various other aspects.
Konami's refusal to update the title with trophy support saw what could have been an opportunity to maintain it's fanbase pass the by, an...
I'd have to agree with the article, some quality control on who can and cannot approve/report articles would be nice too.
Only last week I submitted an article warning users that their account data was currently at risk on PSN, and all the idiots piled on to call it fake, only for Sony to take the servers down the next day and publicly admit that the exploit existed (as was reported to them by the site I had linked)
So thanks to the idiots that tagged the...
Yeah, because tagging something as "Fake" despite the fact it was true, makes total sense.
Why alert users that their accounts are at risk when you can simply bury your heads in the sand and pretend it's all made up, right? >_>
Probably just covert trolling and never owned one to begin with.
I think i'll keep all of mine, and my 360s too, even though 360s are going to be worth absolutely sod-all when they announce the next system soon enough.
Who am I kidding, they're worth next to nothing already, non-slim 360 (ANY version) in UK only has a trade in valid (store credit, which is higher than cash), of £30.
okay then, go to playstation.com and sign in.
Offered to prove the legitimacy of the exploit directly to the "report" user of this article, Tominc, not received a response yet.
