Will the release of PS3 exclusive fall releases be enough for the console's second chance at first place?
Well playing Demon's Souls right now. Uncharted 2 after that and then Ratchet and Clank. 1st place? Little busy to think about that right now. The Wii has first place right now but what are they playing?
Sky is the limit :)
Wii would like to pray
by 2010 the PS3 kick off with MAG. Then there are Heavy Rain, GOW3, WKC, GT5, Modnation racers, The Last Guardian, Insomniac's next game, Agent, The Agency, DC Universe Online, FFvsXIII, PS3 Motion Controlled games, and many more the future looks bright for PS3 owners. How i remember when many people are saying that the PS3 is doomed.
Gotta love PlayStation.
Wii are playing wii tennis...but dont worry PS3 slim is on my Holiday wish list...
yea the wii can have first place cuz its not about them its about xbox/ps3 if its gonna be that ten year cycle then maybe but if not then no........ thas is not the question but the question is who is gonna make a new console first---- who ever jump first is the loser of this generation in my opinion
this not including the Wii cuz the Wii is a casual gamer console the introduction to gaming if i may say
wii is for girls that dont do hardcore games like modern warfare and uncharted or halo and for 12 and under people call me sexiest make me a sandwich
i will not call you the sexiest you sexist
and the reason why alotta girls suck at video games isnt cuz they cant do it its cuz theyre programmed to stop us men from playing them. girls could pwn at call of duty its just they dont want too, the hills is more interesting,or gossiping about whos pragnant and whos a slut lol. im still waiting for a girlto come along that pwns me at video games and wants to play them. and likes ufc. and its only sexist if u say all girls cuz that would be a lie.....
Thats a good question. Wii owners should ask themselves that, lol! I agree with you soxfan, the first one to jump ship on this gen will most likely fail.
Super Smash Bros. Brawl, Super Mario Galaxy, Legend of Zelda, Metroid Prime, Punch-Out, Okami, Boom Blox, Wii Fit, Wii Sports, Zack and Wiki, a couple of WiiWare games (Which are actually pretty good). Pretty casual, but it's good for the kids and older people (and girls) haha.
Super Smash Bros. Brawl (over a year old lol) Super Mario Galaxy (came out 2007) Legend of Zelda (launch game? LOL) Metroid Prime (again 2007? Amazing game though) Punch-Out (sure...) Okami (lol port of a 4 year old game with waggle) Boom Blox (huh?) Wii Fit (*ahem*....no comment) Wii Sports (lol another launch game) Zack and Wiki (how old is this one?)
That's a sad list of games to play this fall considering they're all launch and more than a year old games.
Yeah, those are fine games, but judging by how old and (some) average those games are, it really says something. When someone mentions playing Wii Sports (2006), Legend of Zelda (2006) and Super Mario Galaxy (2007), it's just fine. If a PS3 Owners were to say they are playing Resistance: Fall of Man (2006), MotorStorm (2007) and Super Rub-A-Dub (2006), all hell would break loose. It goes to show how much we give the Wii the benefit of the doubt: "It looks pretty good, for a Wii game" "It's pretty mature, for a Wii game" "The controls are pretty easy, for a Wii game"
I think the only Wii game I'm interested in playing since Zelda will be Monster Hunter 3.
I think the only competent game that will grace the Wii will be Tales of Graces(see what I did there?). But lets be realistic. Tales of Graces, like every other mother ship title in the Tales series, will be ported to another (much more competent) console a year later but with added content and fixed technical issues. Hey Wii owners, thanks for beta testing Tales of Graces for us.
demon's is like zelda but more manly.....gamers around the world are throwing there controllers at the wall after they have to complete a whole level again cuz the accccidently rolled off a ledge to theyre death or forget to heal themselves and died. completeing this game is gunna take me a year lol:p good thing im single lol if u have a gf that u want to keep stop playing this game lol this game demands ur soul lol
So what lies ahead of the PS3 is pure awesomeness, no matter what the sales of such title is, or what the sales of the other unreliable heavy marketed console is.
NO! Hell No!!!
judging by the difference in sales from the PS3 and 360 even from a biased site like vgchartz, I did a bit of math, and starting from last month and ending a year later. the PS3 will sell 19,017,336 units, and the xbox will sell 9,178,044 units in 1 year starting from last month. that's a 9,834,292 unit difference between the 2, the PS3 will than be in second place passing the xbox within a year all math here folks , with the sales numbers I used to do the math were from vgchartz _____________________________ ______ a great comment, and in my opinion a great prediction I made for the future of the PS3, and if this continues, I did some other things and found out at the end of this gen in 3 or 4 years time the wii and PS3 will be very close
First place in terms of what? sales? The PS3 is a beast console with beast games. In terms of quality exclusive games that I enjoy, PS3 is already in 1st place.
TOTAL______DOMINATION_______OF __________THE________FLOPBOX___ _____
Does it need to be in first place to be a successful competitive system? I hope not... Let's keep them on their toes so that they continue to push their system further.Only gamers benefit here.
A place in the ground.
which is ironic, that's where most flopboxes without hdmi input from launch went
that's some ownage right there, I'm amazed with myself (pats himself on the back)
What lies ahead? More generation defining exclusives that make bots go into a jealous rage.
Wii may have first place but it wont be long before Wii is phased out for a new HD Wii so IMO Wii is only a place holder console. Its Nintendo's way to buy time so they can build a more lasting product. You will notice that they just introduced the Wii motion plus that gives it features that was supposed to come with the console 3 years ago. They are selling lots of consoles but in terms of software, Nintendo is feeling the effects of the craploads of shovelware they have allowed onto their console. Whatever happened to the "Nintendo seal of quality"? Nintendo was never in it for the long haul, just a quick buck. Sony and Microsoft (if they stay in this gen for more than 4 years this time) are here for the real gamers. Nintendo sold their soul to the nongamer types and will pay dearly for it in the end. Their once mighty fanbase will whither away and Nintendo will become a glorified gimmick maker.
You speak the truth. everything you said was on the money. I think that the Big "N" is going to be in for a rude awakening when they try to get their current customer base to "upgrade" to the Wii-HD or whatever they are going to call it. The people that have the Wii as their only gaming console and are happy with the game(s) that came with it (most casual Wii owners) are not going to be compelled to upgrade. I think they are going to be right back where they were with the GC. only their blind, long term, drooling fans will get the next console. you know, the ones that have to keep defending the Wii with statements like: "I own a Wii because I like to have fun" , "You just don't know how much more innovative the Wii is" " the waggle is the way of the future" BLAH....
1.more excellent 1st party games. 2.3D games as sony was smart enough to include hdmi for 1080p support as you need hdmi for future 3D games. 3.more play-create-share games like LBP and MNR.but for those that missed it,games like echocrome had play create share too. 4.more spaces to visit if you WANT TO or NOT in home.because well...it's **FREE** 5.more games that push the envelope for online like 40-64-256 players simultaneously. 6.more firmware functions to add to the system like photo mode,music viewer with earth and animated themes. 7.larger games on bluray and more content for ps3 fans without having to install second discs or download from the net to complete a game. 8.pseye,wand and sixaxis support that will bring motion control to the next level.oh,and peseye supports 120fps.we looky here.wonder what that's going to be used for just like hdmi? 9.bigger hard drives for the same price built in.we are now at 120 gigs for $299.wow! 10.sony on the front lines of innovation as usual. http://www.youtube.com/watc... THAT'S WHAT LIES AHEAD.it's like the haters always looking for ps3's **ONE** game.when it has many games to choose from.all sony is concerned with is 100 million in 10 years or less like their other systems.
More exclusives and great times. The PS3 will become a classic and beloved system just like PS1 and PS2 before it.
The PS3's chance on first place will depend on the freefall period of the Wii and how long it lasts. That window would be vital in passing the Wii, as well as, a good lineup of system sellers that could sell, at least, 5 million without breaking a sweat. Gran Turismo will probably be one of the franchises that will become instrumental to this in a similar way that Metal Gear was in closing the gap last summer. The 360 would depend on its lineup in 2010, and whether or not it has more than Natal up its sleeve.
The PS3 started off really really really really bad. Maybe the can pick up some ground, but the other two consoles had a 3 year head start.
Some pretty killer games. Trying to feel any type of accomplishment in Demon's Souls. Then Uncharted 2. NGS2. Then R&C. Bayonetta (play the Japanese demo and you'll see it's zero "big deal" AND insane). MW2 (free online MP). GoW Collection. Boderlands. And on and on... To hell with what lies ahead for the PS3!! Gaming awesomeness lies ahead for me!! EDIT: Disagrees? No, really, I will be playing those games...b!tches.
i'm not playing first place, i'm playing the games... so that's all i really care about, yes, its good the console sells more, that means there are more people to play the games and play online in games like Kz2, Resistance, and warhawk, mag, and all the other titles that have online.. but thats the whole thing of owning a console. it's for game playing not playing sales data and first place.. so... who cares about first place, sony doesn't, they only care that they are delivering Me and 27 million others the game experiences only Playstation can deliver its fans, and sustain it's 10 year cycle plan for the Ps3.. so i say to 1st place to hell... ninty is in first place but what are there consumers doing. playing wii sports... almost 3 years later? hmmm. yep i'll take the PS3 and it's amazing experiences thank you, as pure history shows, The games, once they start coming they dont stop. and they flood us till we drown in them.. 2010 looks absolutely astounding for sony, so i can tell you one thing it's not the sales we PS3 gamers are happy about ^^
What in the world's a Frugral Frak? Pretty decent article though. But still quite the same bit of banter everyone already knows.
this room is all sticky
You'll need more than a napkin. A hose is more like it. :P
It's a website I just started. I've been doing reviews here and there but I love doing articles as well. I don't have a lot of content as of yet, but I'm working on getting reviewers. Thanks for the comments, good or bad. Being my second article posted on N4G its going pretty well.
Well beware. If you make any article that is negative towards the ps3 in ANY way you will get a very heavy backlash. Don't believe me? Spend a few days going through the Sony articles and see for your self.
Frugal Frak, is an alien that is a huge cheapskate. Always trying to save a penny here and there...lol!
Wii is in 1st place because of sales, but when it comes to games, I'm sorry but it's dead last. The future of PS3 owners is looking bright.
I have a bussiness, I count money day made at the end of the day not the middle of the day. ps3 sell 10mil units a year, the end of day they sell 100mil units. people even doubt the ps3 could have ten years lifespan, what make the Wii and xbox could have the same. ps3 will have 2 to 3 years extra to catch up. this is just sales talk. when talk about quality, no need to say who have the best and value.
Comparing to how Sony (and Microsoft) to Nintendo, the cost to get the PS3 to the top is so much higher. Sony (and Microsoft) keep hyping and building impressive very advanced technology and games but it's very hard to make the profit with them. Nintendo is doing the low technology, rebrand the last gen technology and sell to casual gamers which is very profitable. Great PS3 games like Metal Gear Solid 4, Uncharted 1 and 2, God of War series, etc are very high cost to make but they have to sell to many more copies than Nintendo needs to do to make good profits. At least Microsoft is able to sell a lot more copies with high budget games like Halo series and Gears of War series. So, for us, PS3 fans that want to see PS3 to the top of the console wars, do we ever think about doing it will kill Sony profit? Without profit, we don't get to enjoy more high tech products in the long team. What is wrong being 2nd if Sony makes enough good products and being more profitable?
so my friends laugh at him....
it kinda look like Sony don't even care about making big profit. Seem like they only care to advance in technology.
"10 Years Life Cycle" don't suggest something to you, I don't know something like with Tech + Blu-ray + First party = PS3 would last long and the story it will repeat itself like always
Since the ps3 dropped 70% to manufacture since launch and since the ps3 costs around $250 to manufacture This would be a major blow to MS AND NINTENDO If they also did this, it would catch MS in a lie about the $100 price drop just happened to be around the PS3 SLIM Launch http://www.videogamemedia.c... On the flip side SONY most likely wants to make a profit off the console to make up when the ps3 first launched
'What LIES are ahead for the PS3'??? 4D, 1080p in every game, etc. etc. : P
just grab a ps3 and you wont regret it. you need to experience this gen and the ps3 is a good choice. no but seriously nice first place win wii cant wait to play some mario galaxy 2 but really guys grab that ps3 or trade that wii and games in and you can upgrade to the ps3 slim in 2 seconds.
Uncharted 2 God of war 3 M.A.G Heavy Rain Gran Turismo 5 Dead Nation Tekken 6 Twisted metal? Syphon Filter? Resistance 3? Killzone 3?
