Console Wars: Let’s All Forget the Past

From the feature article (Part 1):

"Console Wars will be a three-part feature series where one writer at analyzes the state of the current generation consoles and the so-called console wars. In this first part we’ll be looking at the initial launch of the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, and Wii and how each one has fared from that date until now. The second part will cover this year and what’s possibly in store for the future. In the last part of this series we’ll go beyond and look at the next generation."

@ Ultima

Sure...good luck with your console war. *chants with hands over ears* The Wii doesn't exist. The Wii doesn't exist.

I can't wait to see what games E3 will bring for the Ps3 and Xbox360 this year though. I really hope Microsoft announces some new IP exclusives at the event, I'm really starting to feel left out with all the Kinect games. Really hoping Sony's The Last of Us game plays well and FFvs13 finally appears again. Nintendo will probably announce the Wii U so that should be interesting.

Edit: @ Godmars

Did you catch this part? Good laugh.

"It was hard for a lot of PS3 owners to swallow their pride and admit that the 360 is much more suitable for games. Every year, Xbox 360 exclusives or multiplatform games that ran better on the 360 would be ****nominated**** for Game of the Year on many ****sites****."

You know something? I don't even think a 360 exclusive has ever even won a Spike TV GOTY award this gen. Sony won one, Nintendo won one, but the 360 hasn't (Even Gear of War didn't win when there wasn't much out that year). Yet you notice the push here and at the end of the article for the 360 exclusives ("IMO", "Some sites nominated", etc).

I don't care who thinks what!
I have my favorite console and no need to argue about it.

Will it influence my future purchases? YES! I'm not forgetting about the past. What a ridiculous thing to even propose.

probably for noise level, rrod, taxes for online and accesories, inferior video format, inferior graphics, less exclusives each year, inferior motion controler, etc etc etc etc

and for $$$ in us, ok (with ms medias and brainwashed players)

Pretty sure its not happening. If only because I'm pretty sure that people in the 360 camp have been phantom disagreeing in all the QD tech demo articles. Which apparently have stolen thunder from the latest stills for Halo 4.

You'd think they'd save up for the PS4 vs Xbox 720 vs Wii U.

LightofDarkness3346d ago (Edited 3346d ago )

There were a lot of people disagreeing in those articles because of the manic and over-zealous fanboy orgy taking place in most of them.

It was like 07/08 all over again, with all the fanboys waving flags and saying things like "only possible on PS3" and listing exclusives etc. Just when people thought we were turning a corner on the whole console war thing, all of the troglodyte rhetoric began spilling forth again, with everyone once again acting like they'd "won" something. If that much wasn't obvious, then I don't know what to tell you.

There's being excited about a game, and then there's being excited about the game being on your console of choice ONLY. And even then, there's pretending that what you just saw was the greatest achievement in gaming and using it to proclaim a victory over an imagined foe.

Does it really matter which console wins when gaming itself is losing in general now-a-days.....
