i think u make a good point....lts of gamers always ask for fresh stuff but when theyget t and arent good at it initiallythe complaints come.
Some of you Guys trip me out!! The original Poster was right. The bottom line is that the 360 is nota well built Console and should not have been released in the condition it was. People knocked Sony on the PS2, but there was no recall or red ring problems. Wether Sony denied the problems or not the console didnt have wide spread post about it breaking.I have a 360 Elite; my second 360 after my original broke. All I do is thank Goodness it still works to be honest with you. Why does a power brick cost 100$ by its self? I love what the system can do, but I dont likehow it comes with a lot of "IFs and BUTS" Bottom line is it isnt a well built CONSOLE!
Edit: Man I didn't realize you had already gotten it midway through the thread. Oh well I guess this is a leason in that you should always read as much of the thread as possible and granted this was only two pages I really skimped out. Anyway hopefully my post will help you down the line with some other titles as well as random features for your new system.
If you buy a PS3 for any game it should be MGS4. I think though you'll be pleasantly suprised by the exlusives coming out down the line. And of course PS3 has all the multiplatform titles that at this point pretty much look the same if not better then their 360 counterpart, granted you have a TV thats at least capable of S-Video (480i). My personal favorite exclusives coming out in the near future are that of God of War III and Heavy Rain (a very cinematic game though so it might not be your type). Other people on the other hand are looking forward to Uncharted 2. which seems like a pretty good game but I haven't come around to trying the first one outside a demo that was at the very least beautiful. Infamous also seems to be getting a lot of hpye lately.
As for your multiplatform titles you got Dead Rising 2 and Final Fantasy XIII coming to the PS3 within the next year. Not to mention Bioshock 2 and Modern Warfare 2. You also got RE5, Bioshock, Fallout 3, Guitar Hero, Rock Band, COD 4&5, GTA IV, Dead Space, and pretty much all the other big multiplatform names.
If you like sports games PS3 has all the EA and 2K titles as well as a pretty well received exclusive in MLB 09 the show.
Gran Turismo 5 if your a racing fan.
Little Big Planet if that tickles your fancy.
The Blu Ray Player isn't a bad deal either. Plus if you have a wireless router you can stream content off your computer onto your TV through your PS3 and the system comes with a wireless reciever, on top of that online play is free. The only drawback is you might have to wait an extra 3 or 4 seconds before finding a game as obviously more people own 360's. You also get an internet browser, but it's only decent at best. Still in all liklihood your PS3 has a good chance of surviving for the next 4 or 5 years while on the other hand, my brother who takes great care of his system is on his 3rd 360.
As for Killzone 2. Well it seems like you've made up your mind and you genuinely enjoy it. I liked it that first weekend to but got board with it, even though it is a pretty decent FPS. Of course I'd say the best way to describe it is a hot blonde with a fake.....chest and just a little personality but nothing you would pay attention to if the looks werent there. Then again a lot of guys don't pay attention if the looks aren't there. Still a lot of people genuinely enjoy it and if you're one of those people then more power to you. I will say this though Killzone 2 does have pretty good servers and now that the disabled gamer situation has been somewhat resolved I feel better saying that Gurilla Game's is a company that takes pride in making sure that they support their community.
Of course if you can't live without Gears, Forza, or Halo as well as the GTA IV extension then you'll obviously have a hard time making the switch but personally it's provided me with the most fun I've had playing games in a long time and it only looks to get better in the next year.
In all honesty I don't think you'll be disapointed and keep in mind I've had ample experience with both systems.
that was very informativeWow that was a great post!!
I dont agree with anyone who says killzone 2 isnt a system buyer....well maybe not by its self this is true, but I will say its more of a reason to get a PS3....someone else pointed out earlier in this thread that there are great games like MGS4, Resistance 1&2, and Uncharted to name a few. So should you buy the system for one game? NO! should you buy it to enjoy all its gaming bliss? Yes. Bottom line its really up to you.
I got my PS2 for like too many titles too name............PS3 I got it for all of its exclusive like MGS 4, Killzone 2, and Resistance.
I got 360 for Gears and intially Lost Planet but late I found out Lost planet sucked.
[QUOTE="istuffedsunny"]I've never played a game for the achievements, and in fact don't even look at most of my own games' -- it's sad that some people do thoughsilent_stepThat's not true at all. It creates an additional challenge for the player to continue the game in most cases. It acts generally as a motivator to further enjoy the game you currently own. I don't get how that is sad...
I agree ...how is it sad? why would they put it in there?
I play for achievements!! Check my blog for more details why. But if it wasnt for that and XBL id just own a PS3 and not a 360. As it stands both systems have their good points and points are one of them
