Phil Harrison: The Real Next Generation


Rewind to the heady days of '05 and '06, when this generation was still 'next generation'. At trade shows and press events around the globe, giants of industry from Japan and the United States pace around each other warily: Sony and Microsoft, each looking for an opening for a killer blow. For decades, console wars had been fought between rival Japanese firms. This time, the foes faced each other across the Pacific.

This was a very good read. It exposes a lot of truth and answers a whole lot of questions.

Read cautiously though as it will have many a gamer on this site eating crow. There have been people in the past of n4g that spoke close to the truth of what happened back in the 2006 - 2007 days. Zuhk comes to mind.

I wish Phil the best of luck at Microsoft and that he was right all along.

General Chaos stop writing Rated E for everyone, it's so annoying. You should start rating your comments G, as in, Get out the house more

The tension in this hateful post shows who really needs to get out the house more.

This is an article about the career of Phil Harrison, not the signature of LX General Kaos.

The fact I rarely comment on this site shows I don't. But I've seen you're tag line enough in the comments that it annoys me because it's just really lame and just reeks of geek. No offence. Later.

Well I'm sorry that your personal feelings got in the way of you posting about actual gaming news instead of my signature. Maybe you should go back to being silent if you are going to show up here with hate and off topic posts. Another bubble wasted and still no talk from you about the legacy of Phil Harrison.

You have a healthy bubble count so maybe you can contribute and make it good.

Remember, Sony doesn't need Phil. They have their brand

interesting read. personally i hope he begins to pick up third party exclusive support and helps the first party support step it up. i love my 360 but imo its only real fault is the lack of impressive first/third party exclusives. if he could help ms do that, then i dont think the 360 could be beat it any way. its ui already trumps the others by miles, hell any 1 of the 3 are better than nintendo and sony's.

oh and add in an Internet explorer ( a nice feature but not required, i have a phone and computer but still ) as well and then blu ray support for the next gen.
