Xbox 360 is More Hardcore

Gamerlimit writes: "The gaming industry has grown by leaps and bounds every generation, and this generation is no different. Atari brought home gaming in to the mainstream and with every generation more people have indulged in the industry. Every generation as is defining characteristics. This generation could easily be the generation of fanboys, or it could be the generation of hardcore. Gaming has been divided in to casual and hardcore. Wii, since its launch, has been considered for the causal gaming. The Playstation 3 and Xbox 360 are more rounded for the "Hardcore" crowd while not alienating casual gamers."

it highlights the problems the ps3 HAD, and says over the last 12 months sony has rectified these problems but 360 is a gamers machine because it doesnt force bluray and motion controls?

no 360 forces subscription charges,dvd9,wifi adapters,bad hardware,you even have to pay for certain themes, 360 is a good machine but graphically its near maxed out did gears2 blow you away as much as the 1st? look a† mgs4 then come back with an answer, scarily 2009 ps3 is big hitting graphically kz2 is just the start then gow3.the site talks about online lag...3 years into 360s lifecycle and im sorry gears2 has the worst lag ive seen i waited 30min to enter agame thats horrible

360 has done well but really its aging with hardly any 1st party exclusives rare are their most important studio right now i hope the rumours are true about killer instinct thats a 1st day purchase for me, sony thought ahead its a shame certain sites dont understand that

I never ever had a problem with lag in GeoW2. LittleBigPlanet on the other hand, it keeps dooming me to the firepits.

The funny thing is, no matter what the article says...
I laugh at the media of gaming... Some things just doesn't click when you read fanboy articles... the truth:

- PSN is free of charge... and still holds strong against Live
- Blu-ray isn't a BAD thing, sixaxis isnt a BAD thing... these are both bonuses PS3 owners get and 360 owners doesnt get...
- Live is FUULL of 10-14 year olds, trying to impress on other ppl "look i just made a headshot"..

At the end... no ones word but yourself is worth the trust...
Experience both Live and PSN, and you'll see for yourself...
I experienced both, and the extra money Live members are paying... Isn't worth it.

Xbox 360 is More Hardcore because.....360 owners pay to play online!

What a laugh. Pure clutching at straws here.

The only difference between the two consoles now is the 360 has a years advantage.

You'd have to be 'hardcore' to purchase a console that is a stripped down PC with a major failure rate.

"The Playstation is the best overall system. It offers a reliability, Blu-ray technology, and a constantly growing community. But if you consider yourself a Hardcore gamer looking for that top notch online gaming experience, the 360 is the system you want right now."

If you're a hardcore gamer you'll make up your own mind about these type of things. I find it ridiculous that these articles come out basically telling you that if you fit into a certain group then you have no choice but to like this or that. I own a PS3, Wii and a 360. I play on PSN and Live. I enjoy them both because they both provide me with experiences I can't get on the other. This is do to the games. The exclusives. Everyone has their preferrences... and while this article does make some good points... I feel the writer is not looking at this as objectively as he may believe he is.

It just seems that the tone of this article is one of "All the true gamers play on the Xbox 360". Obviously the writer doesn't say it in those exact words... but I think it's very much the implied message.

If you ask me, the real hardcore and true gamers barely pay a second thought to what plastic box they're using. They think in terms of games... not systems.

when i think of hardcore i think of motorstorm, socom, gears etc. and your right, its all bout the games and you really cant compare which is more hardcore because its all about preference, i can write an article saying the ps3 is the most hardcore system on the market, then what? im not wrong because its what i prefer. and imo it doesn't get anymore "hardcore" than socomC, i just couldnt live without that game yo. and mario pimpin on the wii is a hardcore mofo too ; )

Both systems have a different mix of games. If by "hardcore" you mean the type of gamer that plays Gears 2 and Halo, then duh, they're going to be playing that on the 360!! If by "hardcore" you mean the type of gamer that plays Socom, Wipeout, and MGS4, they're going to be playing on the PS3!!

If you're a hardcore gamer, you should own at least one of PS3/360/PC. If you can afford it, and have enough time (I don't), you should have all 3.

PS3 is my "hardcore" choice because of Wipeout. It's my "family gaming" choice because of PixelJunk (all 3) and LBP.

Mike134nl5244d ago (Edited 5244d ago )

If you are a hardcore gamer you propably own both the xb360 and ps3.

If He had to read anymore 'hardcore' articles!

You know I can sit here and write lengthy articles about the state of affairs of this gaming industry as well. I won't even get into the RROD issue as that is just a low blow and I'm sure the 360 users are tired of hearing it. I'd say both have their variety and with the introduction of various genres (Whether new or old) both are becoming variety consoles in a sense.

Also I think thor stated it best in his comment:

"If you're a hardcore gamer, you should own at least one of PS3/360/PC. If you can afford it, and have enough time (I don't), you should have all 3."

That's exactly how I see hardcore gamers. Owning all 3 is no easy task in these times though.

I Think The Wii is Hardcore because you can kill people in No more Heroes and Manhunt2 taking advantage of the Wii-mote.

I also think The X360 is Hardcore because of You can Shoot people in Gears and Halo

I also think the PS3 is hardcore because you can shoot people in Resistance and Mgs4

This makes no sense. There isnt such thing as a "Hardcorier" Console.

Im off to another thread with my MAX SPEED!!!
