>As has been stated over and over again,
>the PS3's first year sales are higher
>than the 360's were in its first year.

As has also been pointed out, the 360 was supply constrained during much of that time. In its first year, PS3s were gathering dust on shelves. Plus, given the relative install bases of the previous generation, there was what -- 10 times the number of people in the Sony camp? Those folks were ripe for upgrading, and they didn't. In droves.

I've seen PS3 sites getting giddy with the fact that over the holiday season the 360 ONLY sold 150% of the PS3 -- so the gap is narrowing. That's what passes for good news? Here's a mathematical fact: The PS3 doesn't need to reach parity with the 360 in sales, it needs to generate more sales in order to make up for the existing gap in units, which is several million -- even worldwide. (Tangental issue: Sony likes to discuss "shipped" units versus "sold" units to inflate its numbers.)

Yeah, I'm a 360 fanboi, and I'm one of the millions of satisfied users that have driven up the attach rate on that console. Developers are paying attention. This "wait and see" attitude that PS3 cheerleaders like to spout can only last so long.

Used games are damaging? Think about all those used cars that get sold, and Detroit doesn't get a dime. The horror!

23. Re: How do you grab people by the throat Oct 29, 2007, 14:41 Pundit Guy
 
Feels very predator-like when you grab someone while cloaked. Good times, good times.

Frankly, I need a way to tweak the game so that it runs faster, not slower. Any sites have suggestions beyond "set everything to low"?

Yeah, I was a shoo-in to buy this but I'm glad I played the demo first. I won't be able to run Crysis at a good frame rate for a few months (when I get a 8800gt or something better), at which time it should be patched nicely.

Mass Effect will have to tide me over for a while. I don't have to worry about performance on the 360.

I already own HL2, but I'll happily accept a gift of anyone's Episode 1.

"Real Gamers" couldn't possibly be interested in the game... why, exactly? The extremely positive reviews? The long-term MP value?

Since the premise immediately brings to mind SS2, it's going to be tough for them to look good when the inevitable comparisons are made. That's not to say that there can be only one survival horror game set in space... it's just that there's a clear classic to live up to.

Is it too much to ask that companies of this size either hire QA personnel or contract for such services?

>Have you seen "Man on Fire?" It's like this...

Wrong Scott. That was Tony Scott, Ridley's less talented little brother and director of stuff I kinda dug ("Top Gun," "The Last Boy Scout," "The Hunger") and -- not so much ("Beverly Hills Cop 2," "Enemy of the State"). That doesn't speak to your larger point on hyperkinetic cinematography, only to which Scott was doing the complaining.

Carry on.

News Comments > The 80ís Game With Martha Quinn Released, Demo
5. It's okay Aug 15, 2007, 10:06 Pundit Guy
 
A little too easy, and the Quinn factor is kinda lame, since she doesn't actually read the questions -- you're stuck listening to her say the same things over and over again. Still, for $20, may be worth it for the nostalgia factor. And yeah, she's still fine.

Inevitable: death, taxes, the inept suckitude of this game.

Possible QOTD material: has there ever been a decent game based on a TV show? The Star Trek 25th Anniversary game was pretty natty, if I recall.
