Well Microsoft said 7 years not 10.
Here is the link to it.

It doesn't really matter what they say only time will tell how long the 360 lasts. As far as support goes I understand what you are saying but whatever Microsoft did for support in the past, or whatever they do as a business organization that did not stop people from buying whatever Microsoft put out.

Something tells me sales of GTA4 are going to disagree and give strong evidence that more people than ever are buying legit software and keeping the whole system running just fine.

In the first week it made over something like 500mill. Which translates to 6 million copies of the game or something like that. So obviously piracy means fuck all on the console, compared to the PC.

I don't think piracy is such a big issue on the consoles, that it forces them to move onto a new console. Sure you can pirate games on the 360 but that locks you out of playing on Live which is one of the biggest selling point of the 360.

I thought I've heard that M$ and Sony said they want to extend the lifespan of these "next gen" consoles to closer to 10 years, which is a bit too much in my opinion, but anyways I don't think we will see new console from M$ before 2012-2013.

I never quiet understood who was the target audience for those 360 vs PS3 comparisons. If I own a PS3 I'll get the game for that, if I own a 360 I'll get it for the 360. If you own both then you decide which version to get, which bunch of your friends do you want to play this online with the PS3 friends or the 360 friends, also do you care about DLC or not. As for comparing the looks of the 2 version it is just silly in my opinion. Most cross platform games look identical these days so what's the point?

I picked up Crackdown on boxing day from EBgames for $9.99 brand new. That game is awesome. I really like these open world "sandbox" games.

Well the point is why keep on denying it?
Why can't they just say yeah we are working on it and we will announce the shipping date later this year or something.


Maybe this is another technique to build up hype or something.

Based on the sales for the first game, a sequel is a certainty. Why Rein is playing coy about this is a mystery only his analyst can solve



Because he is an idiot. He is known from making an ass out of himself all the time. Like when Gears came to the PC he was saying we have absolutely no plans to release Gears to the PC and 2 months later they CliffyB showed off Gears on the PC to the public.

Hopefully 08 will be better for the PS3 now they got their momentum going with the Blu-ray but I think most of those people own the PS3 bought it for the Blu-Ray because it is still the cheapest Blu-Ray player. I own 360 as well but I am looking to get a PS3 probably this year ones some really worthy games gets released on it, like MGS4 and Killzone 2.

or they should release a bunch of AAA exclusives like God Of War was on the PS2 in order to make people buy the system. PS3 still don't have enough really good exclusive games that would make people dish out the cash for the system.

HDDVD is fucking toast...here's a handy chart, for those keep score:

http://consumerist.com/340946/where-things-stand-in-the-hi+def-dvd-format-war

I'm glad it's the beginning of the end. I can finally start looking into a player now...



Here is the line that pretty much sums it all up perfectly from your link:

"So the future is tilting more and more toward Sony's Blu-ray format, it seems. Honestly, though, will anyone be buying movies on discs by the time this is all settled?"

Downloadable content is the future. Fuck the disks and the scratches.

That's too bad for Sony I really hoped that finally they would have a game that would make the PS3 worth buying a real system seller game. Oh well.

I don't know what's the big deal about paying $50 for a year actually for 13 months of live access. That's not even $4 a month for live. I play a lot online and for me it is well worth it.

I don't have any PS2 games I would play on it, as for the hard drive I have read a couple of articles how easy it is to upgrade the hard drive. I am not sure what uses the USB slots on it other than the keyboard but I do not think I would add one anyways, if I want to play with the mouse keyboard I would just use my PC. Do you really use that much hard drive space though? I have a 360 Elite as well with the 120 gig hard drive but I barely use 20-30 gig space on it at the most.

In your opinion is it worth it to pay for the 80gig version or the 40 gig do just fine?

So what's in store for the PS3 as far as short term exclusives coming up. I don't care about Haze. It doesn't look interesting for me at all. I admit Warhawk and Resistance looked somewhat interesting but not enough to justify my purchase. As strange as it sounds I also liked Motorstorm a lot.
