I really don't get all the hype over these new systems. The 360 is more of the same half-assed games (but they're so SHINY!) and the PS3 is trying to play catch up in a market they obviously don't understand anymore ($500 for an over priced dvd player? No thanks!). The Wii is a great step in a new direction but again, it's an idea that was poorly implemented (online? EVEN MORE mini-games? :thumbdwn:
On top of all this new games now cost $70 and I end up killin it over the weekend...

Yo, anyone got any idea how low the PS3 price is dropping? I'ma wait till it's at least 250... something REASONABLE...c'mon..it's nothing more than a fucking oversized CD player.

400 for a 40 gig isnt that bad

only 50 more than a pro 360

Yeah, Bronz sumed it up for ya. You want a $250 PS3, you gonna have to wait until at least 2011.

As for the rest of the systems, you just gotta find which one suits your particular taste. Look outside the commercial games and peep one that you don't think you'd normally play and see if you can't broaden your spectrum. That's what you do with anything that seems stagnant. Either that or leave it alone.

i felt the same way bout the new consoles
but for wat its worth...we have no choice since all the last gen systems quickly discontinue further game development (PS2 is in its last stages....they jus waiting for the PS3 to finally kick off)
so i got myself a 360 and im happy with it....best console out there (Wii is fun and unique but the games aint much to talk about)

the problem i was having a couple months ago was there was too many quality games out....which is rare and never a bad thing but damn too much money and not enuff time

12-26-2007, 07:23 PM
Blu-Ray players alone, at their cheapest, around $250 bucks. The PS3 is gonna come with some sick titles in the very near future. Its not about where things are at now but where they're goin. MGS4 and GTA IV alone are gonna make it worth owning.

JRoll
12-26-2007, 11:16 PM
What dudes fail to realize is for the price you pay the PS3 is worth it. It's not an "oversized dvd player" thats just a shitty excuse because people dont wanna pay for shit anymore. And don't give me that bullshit about the PS3 has no games. It has lots of games, it just doesn't have games that YOU like. But for other people theres plenty of them. Have you noticed theres been not alot of problems with it? But almost every day you hear shit about xbox with red rings of death and discs that freeze, not to mention blueray can hold more shit than hd dvd. If the PS3 was 200 bucks all yall fuckers would have a PS3. Dont give me that shit about the system sucks. the system is fine. its just that you people dont wanna pay 600 bucks so you make excuses.

Final Fantasy 13?
Final Fantasy 13 versus?
Tekken 6?
GoW 3?
Do I really need to go on?

Both systems are decent, I don't really understand all this crazy fan boy shit that goes down, Get a job and buy both systems.
Both have Alot of decent shit coming out in 08 and 09.

by the time it gets down to that price they'll have the playstation 4 ready for launch and you'll get a version of the PS3 that has no DVD player.

there are really no games that i want to play so bad that i would go out and spend half a G for them. the price is most definately gonna have to come down.

zelda for the wii is also available for gamecube so no real need to go and buy a wii right now.

all the systems have the pro's and cons

i got a 360..
360 is good for the titles but bad for the reliabilty in lasting...as in it could break down on u after a while
well the older 360's any way

the newer ones come with a diff prossecor witckeeps cooler and all that shit...
another 360 .uside is ...live..its the best


ps3

i think its a good price
blueray dvds and gaming= bigger and beter graffix .....in the near times ahead

down side the geames out right now...but thier will be a bunch hitting soon

anopther pro..ps3 dosn break down as much
..


the wii

pro..............its fun as hell whn ur playing with friends ..like when u have party...
my 2 lil cuz's have the wii ..i play with them all the time when i go over..and i have fun

the con...probly non if u view the wii as just a fun box...thinking about getting one soon for when peeps come over we could play



so all in all ....all systems are good..with thier own pro's and cons...on one self's opinion

ps3.......theater/gaming..............400/500
360......gaming/live....................350/450....another 160 for the hd dvd drive
wii.........fun/party gaming..........250/plus 100 for more contollers


so price between 360 and ps3 are pretty much the same

lets say u want the 360 pro with the hd dvd

350 +160 = 510
ps3 80 gig hhd= 500

both pretty much same price with the same kinda of wants...as in viewing highg def movies and gaming


i can see were some of the kids are comming from or peeps how dont have jobs the ons who do but cant afford to enjoy them selves as life comes first


60 $ a game is a lil to much for 360 but not for ps3
cuz its blue ray
it should be this

ps3 game.....60
360 game....50
wii game....40

i've yet to see graphics from any of these systems that dramatically improve upon the graphics of the sega dreamcast. that system was the last huge jump in home console graphics.

now its all about games because the graphics for all these systems are pretty much the same. no system is better than the other really. the system you choose depends on the games you want to play.

Are you fucking kidding me. Great games on dreacast:
Omega 5
Marvel vs. Capcom
Marvel vs. capcom 2
Ikaruga
Project Justice
Rersident Evil Code: Veronica
Sonic Adventure
Sonic Adventure 2
Soul Calibur
Shenmue
Phantasy Star Online
Crazy Taxi
DOA 2
Skies of Arcadia
Mortal Kombat Gold

All these games originated on the Dreamcast then got ported over to other consoles. Besides the arcade hits.

I can go on, but why? The dreamcast failed simple because people wanted to buy a dvd player as well.

If the PS3 didnt have blue-ray, that shit would not be selling. Trust me. The dreacast had some of the best games ever made. There are still games being made for it. In Japan, not here. But, to each its own. And yes, great graphics dont make a great game. However, the dreamcast was ahead of its time.

never herd of one of these games, seriously. dreamcast had a TINY dent in the aussie market, it was like the saturn, did fuck all. but your saying all those games are "GREAT" ? Phantasy star ? c'mon man

i guess it depends on your taste of games, a sonic game "great" ? and mortal kombat gold, haha, in MY opinion MK lost its greatness after #4, that 3d shit alienated its fans,

You're from australia. Ok, I see where you are coming on that tip. I am from the US. And alot of people play fighting games out here. At home, arcades died out here. However, You never heard of the games I mention on dreamcast is very sad. I am serious. You must have very little knowledge of games. Plus you have goro in your sig, and you think mk gold sucks, but you never played it, confused. Plus you never played the original versions of phantasy star online, or sonic adventure on the cast.

I only got on you cause you were shitting on the dreamcast and shitting on other people statements and opinions. Which is fine. You entitled to your opinion. But be true to yourself. You never heard of these games. You know nothing about these games and thats it. Period. I myself never played the latest mgs games, or ff. I find them boring but other people dont. So, I cant argue cause those games sell and they popular.

Oh by the way, its not side version of mk. Its the 2d version of mortal kombat. You see what I mean. Its frustrating when people say shit about games and say they have knowledge when you make an ignorant statement like that. How am I - a true gamer- supposed to react. And yes, older versions of phantasy star online do make a difference - know your role and shut your mouth.
