As months just seem to fly by, the next-gen race seems to me is finally starting to space out. The Wii hasn't let up in sales at all and Im pretty surprised that its still hard to come by. Now with Metal Gear Solid 4 out, which is probably to me, the game of the year, the PS3 is getting sales that its needed these past few years. Although I think the real surprise to me is how flat the 360 is right now. With not many games to really grab you, i've noticed that not many people are really praising the 360 for much of anything. Over the past months, I've seen movie companies leave the HD-DVD format and join the Blu-Ray disc. Alot of people I know who have no affliation with any specific console say the the 360 is really dissapointing them because of how a great game like Ninja Gaiden 2 has tons of bugs and issues that it shouldn't have, will never be fixed or updated on the 360. When I got my 360 for Halo 3, I enjoyed it for a few months but now I don't even touch it and I don't really want to pay 50 dollars for friend management on Xbox Live when I could play my Wii online or PS3 for free and get no lag. With that said, Im hoping maybe the race will pick up and be a little bit closer but it seems to be that the Wii and PS3 are just pulling away from the 360. To be honest with all of you out there, I don't think Gears of War 2 or Fable 2 will do much for the 360. Best of luck to all of you.
