Consolidation

Console price cuts could be right around the corner says: "Disastrous GameCube sales in the company's first fiscal quarter, combined with the threat of losing retail shelf space, could prompt the company to knock $50 off the $149 console earlier than anyone expects." Also, Ubi Soft ships Tom Clancy's Ghost Recon Island Thunder for Xbox and Silent Hill 3 for PS2 ships. And den: PlayStation 3 chip nears completion (thanks bumgut). Finally, Slashdot: Academy Awards Of Halo Videos (thanks Mike Martinez) lays out the red carpet (watch out for Joan and Melissa).

Can't say i'm a fan of zelda, dan, but I might want to save the princess one day.

Silent hill 3 ships? Didn't you yanks get it already? It's been on sale here in the UK for a while. How odd. Finished it today. The voice acting kinda spoils an otherwise excellent game.

Link COULD be interesting? Link is the main character in the best game series ever.

Soul Calibur 2, oh yes... The X-box got the best exclusive character in spawn unfortunatly, I get to play with yoshimitsu, that oh so memorable character from tekken Links could be interesting though.

Can't get enough of that monkey ball, monkey ball, monkey ball...

Soul Calibur II is great. It's not the kind of jump in gameplay soul blade was to soul calibur, but it is just more of a very fantastic thing. Edge Master mode is fun and adds more to the replay value. And the Xbox having spawn is pretty cool. I kind of wish it was an xbox exclusive, not to screw other consoles, but to have the game be on par with DOA3 in graphics. I just love this game so much it would have been great to see it all pixil shaded and bumpmapped and be a huge jump in graphics. Maybe namco will make a PC version.....they are giving us a shitty port of Dead to Rights......hmmmmm.....I can dream can't I......
There are times when I really hate the gaming industry.

Speaking of the Dreamcast...I haven't pointed out (in the last 5 minutes) that Soul Calibur 2 comes out this month!

Oh yeah! Soul Calibur is my favorite fighting game ever. Can't wait for 2 to hit the shelves

i played a bit of the jap version at a game store.. it wasn't overly fun.. but then again i'm not into button mashing, combo utilizing, secret move memorizing, fighting games. i guess that's why i didn't mind smash bros. melee

I've been playing mario golf since last week when it came out... good fun.

also i recently acquired a copy of skies of arcadia which is also a recent game and it's pretty fun

i believe the best games of the system will be released between now and 2nd quarter 2004.

sphinx (which i guess is on ps2 as well but the ps2 version will look like crap), mario kart, f-zero, mario tennis, pikmin 2, mario party 5, metroid prime 2, star fox 2, x-men legends (not sure if that will have a pc release), mobile suit gundam: the ace pilot (booyah i have a system that's going to have a gundam game finally!), pitfall harry and more! YUM! more at: http://www.nintendo.com/games/master_list_result.jsp?filter_id=0067&page=0&sort_id=0010

Give me a Gamecube over a PS2 and unmodded Xbox anyday also. PS2 has the worst games IMO. And even though the dreamcast has the older hardware, I still think it had the best and most unique titles for it so far. It was a great system, but fanboys killed it by waiting for the POS PS2. It would be nice if these fanboys learned to think for themselves instead of being brainwashed by companies like Sony.

Give me a gamecube over an X box any day. I spent so much time wasted on pikmin, super monkey ball and whatnot. I don't think the X box has a confident edge over the cube in sales I think so it'd be great if prices dropped and Gates slipped into third place...

People always say the dreamcast was a great little system. Shame sega no longer do consoles.

I gotta say, I like the GameCube
It has alot of good (as good as any conole game can be) game's on it. And it was always cheaper then the others. Maybe that was their mistake. If they made it insanely pricey, it would of done better, after all, things that cost more are better...right?

I still say it is a good system.
But I also still say the DreamCast was a GREAT system for it's time....what a shame about that one

I am free of all prejudice. I hate everyone equally.

Should change the color to brown so as to match the poor raft of recent titles (with the exception of Metroid and Zelda)
