Now we found something really interested and had to laugh when we read the article over on Product Reviews, in our eyes we have always said that the PS3 and its Blu-ray are the real winners and we will always stand by that.
ps3daily.co.uk are upset it seems that Multi-Disk games are still kicking blu-ray ass.
hey pp, pull my finger then run around and scratch my back.
I am sorry to tell you, You are mentally challanged.
Blu-ray is the future DVD is reaching the end of its life cycle incuding 360 with it's dvd.
in a Sony controlled environment(n4g). I give you props for trying though. And you're 100% right about one thing, 360 IS the way to go this gen. PS3 is gaming junk this gen.
PP want to see how a 360 would handle a bluray sized game? http://www.youtube.com/watc...
wtf? i know my english suks but isnt co.uk the brits domain and if i am correct shouldnt it read .....interesting....anyhow thats my useless input for this day
yh i think you should just be quiet
@lokin - Yeah you are right
Why is it people keep complaining about a three disk rpg?. Is not that the game will suck because of this. Every gamer through time has played a multi disk game and it was never an issue. For an rpg I cant complain especially since you probably will spend hours finishing a disk. The real problem is if for example in a game like gta you would have to change disk if you go to another city. But an rpg?. Really?.
When your mother was pregnant with you pp, why didn't she just throw her fat ass down some stairs? It would have saved us all a lot of grieve.
Who said she didn't do that? I'm sure she did but he survived but you can already see that the damage has been done.
Hey I'd like to know... Can Sony just decide not to allow the next Xbox to have Blu-Ray? What will MS do? I guess going back to HD DVD is a bad choice since it's dead and would cost a LOT to produce...
Ofcourse sony would allow and even want microsoft to use bluy ray but it would cost them. It seems obvious microsoft wouldn't want to pay that and is more likely to use another medium Hd-Dvd, which still is cheaper than blu ray.
They couldn't deny anyone usage of it, just sony is the one who helped develop it and now own the larger market share in blu-ray. That is all, sony and philips created the CD - did they deny anyone else access to that? No.
but what's different now is that MS is in direct competition with them Windows on sony computers : MS doesn't make the computers
doesn't make bluray drives...so come again. Besides isn't Microsoft's codec attached to bluray?
In the business world companies don't care about stupid fanboyism. If microsoft want blu-ray for the next xbox then they have to pay the royalties. Sony isn't the one calling the shots for blu-ray, because lots of companies are involved and they don't even have the largest share in the IP rights. MEI (Panasonic) owns the largest percentage of blu-ray intellectual property rights, with Sony, Pioneer, and Phillips also having large shares.
Do you guys realize that no other console brand in the history of video games has lasted more than 4 years in terms of sales and support?! NES,SNES, Gamecube, N64, all sega consoles and original xbox didnt last more than 4 years, Playstation consoles last a decade or slightly more. My point is this. MS knows 2009 is the 4th year, they know the 360 cannot produce anything that looks, sounds and plays as good as killzone 2 and even God Of War 3. They decided to go with just standard DVD and have a short term outlook and now they are paying the price for 09 and beyond! Why do you think Shane Kim recently said in 09 they are gong to focus more on competing with the wii with more "family friendly" games. You guys know if they do that, it will be a dream come true for Sony because thats pretty much MS admitting they have maxxed out the 360s fullest potential and are handing over sony the hardcore market. Star Ocean 4 on 3 discs and FFXIII will most likely be on 4 discs. You are starting to see the 360 age. MS is in a jam now, if they dont announce a new xbox console soon then they will be forced to try and top games like Killzone 2, Infamous, Uncharted 2, Gran Turismo 5 and God Of War 3. and if they do announce a new Xbox soon then all you 360 fanboys will be bashing them complaining they gave up on the 360 too soon just like with the original Xbox. So yes, the 360 has good sales this holiday season but remember it was getting spanked by Sony worldwide before the big $199.99 price cut. And all they have announced so far is just 2 halo spin offs for 09, if i where you guys.. id be worried
When the 360 is selling more and more this holiday and PS3 sales are sliding (check my post below for why). Also, MS breaks even on every 360 sold and has the highest software and accessory attach rate, while the PS3 still LOSES money on every PS3 sold and has the worst attach rate. This is a business, you know, and that is why MS says they want to compete with Nintendo-- Nintendo is making gobs of money, will the 360 is simply making money. The PS3 has yet to show any positive financial returns for Sony, and if Sony were any smaller of a company, the PS3 might have bankrupted them.
you forget Sony is NOT a Small company its a HUGE conglomeration that has its hands in EVERYTHING so the Ps3 selling badly is nothing and as for Sony loosing money on EVERY Ps3 sure it dose but your forgetting the HUGE amounts on money its making on the technology that is inside the Ps3 like the CELL and Blu-ray so sure Ps3 is loosing money but Sony is technically breaking even because of the sales of the separate tech inside the thing
make your post a little more scary. Right now, you're just plain boring. We all knew about 2007. It was thought Xbox would win (sales wise) and it didn't. We all knew about about 2008. It was thought PS3 would obliterate, and it turns out Xbox might make a huge comeback during the holidays. All in all, I think its important to keep in mind, that regular software titles are not the sole momentum of a console's sales, especially later on in its life cycle. Instead its the miracles that count. Either that, or we should all stop guesing. 2009, the year of... me (its corny, but its true).
I hope the 360 is running out of time because that means I can upgrade to better hardware soon. I don't really care if a console lasts 10 years when everything it comes out with after the fourth year is dated in technology. Imagine if MS launches a new console at the $300 and $400 price range again and is competeing with a $300 or still $400 PS3, who wins that battle? Also imagine that console launching with Gears 3, Halo 4, or Call of Duty 6. Unfortunately Sony would have no chose but to drop the PS3 and move on to compete, which would upset many people but be a good business decision like MS ditching the old xbox. Hopefully all this competition is going to make Sony do remarcable things to show everyone that they do mean business and to show us what they are made of!
I buy a console because i want it to last longer than 4 years... If i was willing to upgrade every 4 years that would mean I was spending £800 on new consoles every 8. I hope that Sony meant their 10 year cycle because then my £400 console looks like a good buy.
you just say it too well!! bubble for you LittleBigKillzone!! step it up I got your back!!
Daishi that has to be the most ignorant thing I have ever heard!
Why is their holiday offering a PS3 with a game no one has heard of (Uncharted) and a 160GB HDD for $100.00 more that their already most-expensive-system on the market when the US economy is in recession and shoppers are more price-conscious than ever? So whats to disagree about? I work at Gamestop, and the only PS3's for sale are the 80GB model with no game for $399, and the 160GB with Uncharted for $499. Guess what- we haven't sold a single $499 model. Sell dozens of Wiis and 360's every day, only occasionaly a 80GB PS3. Sony should have included MGS4 or Ratchet and Clank. People ask me what Uncharted is about all the time. I tell them it is an inferior Tomb Raider knock-off staring a male lead.
Rofl LMAO No one ever heard of Uncharted? Pure LMAO
How in the name of anything good in this world do you have so many bubbles??? Uncharted is a great game.
"I tell them it is an inferior Tomb Raider knock-off staring a male lead." You're exactly the reason why most gamers hate Gamestop. Also the reason why Gamestop and its employees are considered biased.
...Nathan Drake would like to have a word with you...
I'd put money on you not working in Gamestop. 90% of people here who claim to have a wife and a job are in the 11-13 age bracket.
Sorry to say this but...ur a fu***ng tool!
4.5 i've always thought the same
you work at gamestop... and i leave it at that :p
you make gamestop employees look really bad with that post.
@ Slugg I've heard it reported here that Gamestop employees inform people about console purchases while imbuing the information they give with their own personal politics. "Uncharted an inferior Tomb Raider game starring a male lead"? I guess you're out of the loop because critics around the globe proclaimed it to be a great game averaging something like 8.5-9.0. Of course if you keep imbuing the information with your own anti-PS3 sentiments to curious console adopters, then of course they'll buy less PS3s and more 360s. You're not helping your cause here dude.
Slug working at Gamestop.... is that a step above or below McDonalds? lolzers
Pennywise damn dawg!! u just say it too well. I laugh my ass off. good one there!!! bubble for you!!
You guys.. use your head. "LOLOL EVERYONE KNOWS ABOUT UNCHARTED!" Yeah.. maybe on gaming blogs and forums.. in the public? Nope. It's like saying "THE 360 IS GOING TO NAIL THE COFFIN OF THE PS3!" Yeah.. maybe on the net.. in the public? Nope. And that's all that matters.. is the public. They're the ones who buy the consoles. And most of them don't know what game is what unless they've looked up things about it. If I had never looked up info on the PS3, I would walk into a store and see a 160GB PS3 with a game that I would think would be a waste of time. Is it? No.. to the public? Maybe. Who knows.
i would like to know where you work so i can buy uncharted and put it in my white glove then Bugs bunny style slap you across the face with it. After it breaks i would then like you to replace my copy with a brand new one.

true, with the ongoing technology Microsoft will realised the Blu-Ray is the future of gaming, now i'm not trying to be a fanboy but to stand on a point that future games will take up a massive amount of space the Blu-Ray has. Example: MGS4
Downloadable content. MS might be banking on that, and their industry leadership with LIVE. That way, all you need is a huge hard drive and high-speed internet...
Well not everyone on the planet has a high speed internet connection and how long do you think will take for anyone to download a 50GB of files or perhaps even more, the Blu-Ray is a better choice imo though.
One which MS refuses to price reasonably, and the other which not everyone has and could soon receive limits. I'm not sure that solution is such a rosey one.
"all you need is a huge hard drive and high-speed internet..." That easy huh?
Downloading Blu-Ray size games would just be unreasonable. Installs on the PS3 are bad enough, but we're talking many hours of downloading for an average connection. Larger storage discs are the only direction console gaming is heading at the moment. But if you guys haven't noticed, a single DVD still fits the majority of games without issues, so M$ is still in good shape for now.
@ slugg good news for all those arcade owners that you brag about so much huh?
was a classic. Chuck Norris got his ass handed to him in the Colosseum and that kitten was watching the whole thing. Bruce Lee forever.
Indeed. I wish Bruce was not so hardcore though so he would still be around. /sniff
Bruce Lee > Chuck Norris yes, people.
Same old news. Man get over it 360 uses DVDs and sony use blu-ray. we have already had several long arguments about his topic already
Im sure 360 owners are outraged FFXIII went multyplatform. Now they will be forced to change discs a few more times instead of just dishing out 400$ bucks for a new system to play only one game on. Sony's concept of having games on a single disc has surely won over some costumers but the failure of the same concept being able to pursue devs making games exclusively for the format has pushed away the masses
"dishing out 400$ bucks for a new system to play only one game on. " There's a rumour going round that the PS3 actually has more than one game.....
@ Fishy Don't worry that rummor was squashed the moment Sony took BC out of the console... (JK of course, couldn't resist)
I'm pretty sure he was talking about the people that have always been Playstation faithfuls because of Final Fantasy. Besides, everyone knows PS3 has about 4 games! (I kid, I kid)
Used to switching disks since final fantasy 7 blablabla, so no big deal there. Though I do agree dvd is showing its age but bigger doesn't always means better. People seem to forget that even though the hardware specs are growing rapidly, so are the costs of developing games. Developers are already struggling make huge games like killzone 2. Only a few developers are capable of building such games exclusively. I hope the industry will be able to keep up though if they aren't able they will propably stick with the xbox 360 for the moment, since the ps3 won't be going anywhere soon with an estimated life span of 10 years.
Except when games like K2 come out everyone with sony gets an inside look on how to use their coding, lowering costs and enabling even small devs to push bigger and better games for a lot less. Being used to switching discs is no reason to accept it on the next gen of consoles, shouldnt the 360 be past that already? How long before it turns it 6,7,8 discs? How long before MS ditches the 360? Time is running out for MS to make a big decision on their future and dont expect them to let you know about it until its too late.
I think that XBOX 360 users should be forced to change discs while playing a game for years and years to come.
really?!? Are you serious ?!? Omg!?! Really?!? Ps3- can't afford it cause yo mammadont love you that much. Nah, nah, ne nah nah! I got a psthreeeeeeeee yeeeeeeee!
Sony should advertise that even if you bought 2 xbox 360s you would still have to swap the disc once while playing Star Ocean!
holly cow .. three disks for an RPG. this will ruin my experience completely. After the first fifteen or so hours of play (which will probably take me about three days) i will have to change the disk. This cannot stand. Obviously the Playstation 3 is better becasue it would be able to do it on one disc. jesus.. the Fanboys are really holding on to non issues. Like every other console in history has not had milti disc games. whatever. this is getting ridiculous.
Good point until that soft surfaced dvd scratches on 1 disc then all 3 are no good.
DVD is so next gen. Obviously alot of you never had a ps2. Xbox360 was your first console. First buliding blocks, legos & now 360. My, you've grown so much. They should put handles on the xbox360 so you can carry it easier to the ups store or just throw it farther out the window. Ps3 competes better with pc because they both get updates & upgrades. Xbox360 keeps getting older. Its so last year. The fad is over.
Sales say 360 is still alive last time I looked, but it is indeed aging.
RROD says that many of them have died!
