PS3 Turns 2. Cause For Celebration?

The Gamer Limit delivers a "state of the union address" on the eve of the PS3's second birthday. Can the PS3 be considered a success so far? What does the future have in store?

From the article:

"Each passing year is like a lifetime in console years and can make all the difference in the perpetual battle for console domination. Two years on the market means the PS3 is like a young adult. It's spread it's wings and left the nest. It's trying to find it's place in the grand scheme of things."

OFF TOPIC: Im not supposed to talk about this but im so hype and i cant help it. I know someone who is working on GOD OF WAR 3 and i cant say much but all i can say is u will be SHOCKED the ps3 can do those graphics.IFu think kilzone2 looks mind blowing then u have not seen nothing yet.2009 CANT COME SOON ENOUGH

happy b-day ps3 A.K.A graphic BEAST!!!!!!!

God of War 3 will be riddled with low rez textures and tight quarters to make things look better... God of War 3 will play just like it's brother and sister did and will bring nothing new to the table, expect for maybe pushing the digital analog stick while fighting bosses now.

I don't get my hopes up about anything Sony no more. To top it off... GOW3 will probably sell 999,999 units at retail too... A spite buy away from the 1 million mark, driving the steak in deeper and the point while they're at it. That point being no one buys Ps3 games.

@Silogon: I bloody well hope GOW3 plays like it's brother and sister. They were, imo, the absolute best two games of the previous generation.

That's the major obstacle standing in GOW3's way. If it's too much like it's predecessors people will say it's just more of the same. If they change too much, people will complain that it strays too far from the old formula.

Personally I hope it's very similar to the original games with better graphics and a few minor additions here and there to keep things fresh.

Silogon, you need to quit skipping your meds!!!!! SOOOO NEGATIVE. GOW3 will be amazing and you have no clue what the textures will look like.

One would think KZ2 would hush the nay-sayers.

Nitrowolf25060d ago

lol @ silogon.
GOW3 will be amazing. And play likes it brother and sister? I see no problem with that, that is one of the reason why the game was so dam amazing in the first place. I expect 3 to surpass 2 and 1 by great lenghs. And as for the graphics and texture being bad, i doudbt sony would even allow that to happen. They know what they are doing and you don't.

he literally struggled to be the first comment on this post probably lol.

GOW3 will do fine, it is a guranteed GOTY contender for 09. Looking at the PS2 and Xbox360 the PS3 is doing fine.
