Not even close. I thought it's been quite civilized. In fact, yours and the comment about leo being a fool might be the only two blatantly trying to make it one (both pro 360). For people considering the systems, there are pros and cons to both. As for your particular 360, consider yourself lucky. A lot of people are having issues with the 360 hardware. Your good fortune doesn't redeem the 360's bad reputation.
I agree, and am surprised that this hasn't turned into "PS3 sux @ss" or "Shitbox 360" posts. I think we can all agree that the 360 has flawed hardware and the PS3 is overpriced. Either way, they both have their ups and downs.

In case anyone missed that!
And what percentage of this 73% are playing PopCap and Flash games? I'm all for PC gaming, but I think some will see this as 73% of the people are playing Crysis Warhead or Battlefield; hell, I would venture to guess that 50% of the 73% (36.5% of the total for those keeping score) are WOW players.

I just sent my 360 in (time #2) for the RROD issue. A buddy at work just said that the video in his Elite 360 just crapped out on him as well. It just sucks that MS can't seem to make this product decent, I've had my PS3 for a year and a half and have yet to have it even hiccup on me. I will say that if the 360 shits on me one more time after this I WILL be selling it on EBay.

Ninten-nerd here as well; take me back to the original Metroid, Crystalis, waiting for Zelda II to launch, Star Tropics, Metal Gear, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles ... I could go on forever as well. Now THOSE were the days!!
Edit: Damn iPod and its auto-correct...

Interesting, it's good to see that Sony can get the general timeframe right on the 3rd time. Many people say Home isn't that great but it's mostly due to the lack of people in the environment (so I've heard); wonder if opening it up will give people a new opinion of it.

You remind me of the jerks who refuse to talk about any automobile that is not made by company/country X. I will go play Uncharted on the PS3 now and hit up some Company of Heroes later on my PC and wonder what everyones problem is... I'm sure it has something to do with your inability to comprehend a controller, which is strange cause when I was a lad PC gamers were the guys that invested in 100 button Hotas setups for their sims... double stick and a dozen buttons is piss easy compared to that. Maybe y'all got a case of consolitis yourselves?
QFT, I'll be playing Burnout Paradise on the PS3 in the morning, GTA IV on the 360 in the afternoon, and play some BF2142 at night. It's all about the gaming experience and what fills your needs over a platform or brand.

Techie, you're an idiot, IMO a serious gamer is someone who pays attention to the industry on a daily basis and invests their money in that industry KNOWING what kind of investment they're making, not some dumbass that buys a game because the box looks cool. This doesn't matter if it's on a PC or a console.

I would say this makes sense since a majority of the NES kids (myself included) have grown up on gaming and now the Wii and Flash gaming are starting to hit the casual crowd. I'm 34 and have had almost every console out (the majors anyway, no 3DO or Jaguar sorry to say) and have been amazed at what each generation brings. I also have enjoyed PC gaming but haven't upgraded my rig in about 3 years, so for now I'm on a hiatus.

Kojima, how about you focus on making a great game versus an interactive movie. I liked MGS4, but at the end I had to push myself to complete it just to say I did. Oddly enough, I didn't feel this way about MGS3, the game I was LEAST psyched about in the series.

Not sure who's publishing it...they'd been talking about updating BB for awhile now and got really quiet this year, and I feared it'd been canceled. But now we get it and new content...
I want to say it's now Atari that's publishing it, but don't quote me on that.

Either way, it looks like it's set for a Q2 '09 release and I will be willing to put down a pre-order right now. I still have BB for the XBox and in the first 3 hours, the only thing I didn't like was going through the sewers right before getting your peeps shined.

Now I'm going to have to go into my son's room and put this in and play it since he has my original (launch) XBox in there.

News Comments > The Old Republic Action Figures & Comics?
3. Re: The Old Republic Action Figures & Comics? Dec 3, 2008, 11:22 CrimsonPaw
 
This doesn't surprise me at all considering they had figures for The Force Unleashed. The Old Republic sounds like an interesting concept but I can't bring myself to pay out the "per month fee" for a MMO.
give us Tie Fighter 2 already.
QFMFT; the only problem is that given their track record they'd probably fuck it up royally.

Hopefully they mix it up a little bit. The collecting was decent in LSW but became monotonous later on with Indy and Batman. Give us a free roaming lego world where we can build our own stuff, that would kick @ss!

I guess we'll have to wait for the games Rap Band or Hip Hop Hero to make their debut for everything to balance out. This argument is just dumb, I could give a shit less what "color" the main person is in my game. I enjoyed playing San Andreas as much, if not more, than playing Vice City and it didn't have a fucking thing to due with the color of the main character.

1. Anyone playing? Nov 30, 2008, 13:58 CrimsonPaw
 
Anyone still playing this? I just rebuilt my machine and am thinking of putting it back on. The last I've heard is that the games are full of cheats and bots, but if anyone knows of a decent and reputable server I might give it a try.

I often feel like games are way too good of a deal. I once bought Conquest Frontier Wars for a single dollar at Circuit City. I played the game for over 100 hours. ONE PENNY per hour of entertainment!
Savor these games because they don't come along often. For me, Oblivion falls in this category; I'm 65 hours in and still have a LONG way to go (making at this point about $.30 per hour). Somewhat off topic, but as much as I love Oblivion, I'm not really able to get into Fallout 3. What's funny is a buddy at work was saying the same thing, not sure what it is, I just like the ES setting a little more (though we both agree that a VATS type system in the next ES would rock!).

400 bucks is still too much for a ps3. Dont I have to buy a special ps3 hdmi cable additionally too?
If you see it as just a gaming machine, then yes, it's too much. But if you see it as a Blu-ray player ($200) and a gaming machine ($200), then it is a decent value.

I think the thing is a very powerful machine for the money, too bad others can't see it as such.

you know I'm not exactly loving the new xbox interface. there's a longer wait for the pages to draw as stuff is loaded from the internet vs. the old "blade" interface. Not a deal-breaker though. Oh and the avatars are flatout childish. Copying disc games to hardrive is nice -- that gets a thumbs up.
I have to agree, I just want to play my games, not play dress up with my Mii 2. If I had Netflix I would be ecstatic, but at this point I'm not there yet. As for the disk copying, I'd be all over it if I didn't have a 20 GB HDD with only 11GB free. Too bad MS is trying to fuck over their consumers by raping them for a 120 GB drive.

I am so sick of hearing Nickelback songs. That lame photograph one played on the radio for over a year, every day, seemingly every time I turned on my car.
The only good Nickleback song is Leader of Man, back before they went soft. Anything after that just reaks of "I'm trying to sound angry but only come off as whining."

Wait a minute.... you're telling me if I leave my console on, it consumes more power than if I turn it off? Why has no one told me this before?!? Does this apply for other devices that run on electricity too?
Something tells me that there was federal grant money used for this research. Next up: People who play console FPSs for extended periods of time get hand cramps.

Well I finally made the jump awile back and picked up a PS3, my first console since the Intellivision. I got my typical console type games, Tiger Woods, NHL, R&C, DiRT, GTA which are great for joysticks and I got my PC for FPS, RTS and 4X games. I took a chance and grabbed Bioshock for the PS3 and I was not dissapionted, turned sensitivity up and killed autoaim. Totally sucked for awile but eventually got the hang of it and am getting pretty good, playing on the couch with a 52" HDTV and my 7.1 surround is so sweet, my PC has some competition now when I am looking at FPS games.
And if you're looking for a true mouse/kb FPS, pick up Unreal Tournament 3 for the PS3, though I'm not sure how many rooms allow for m/k combo.

Edit: whoops, forgot the closing quote bracket.
