I'm 29 and buying both, one for me and one for my wife. It's a great game. Hate it as much as you want, but sometimes fun is worth more than blood, gore, and shooting things.

I love watching people ignorant people make fools of themselves. Raw system power means nothing if a developer doesn't have or take the time to use it. So if you're going to bash the Wii/PS3/360, at least do it on an article that mentions either of those systems.

Sony's recent negative press would seem criminal if they hadn't brought it upon themselves. The price will be the most debated thing about this launch, so I'll just say this; One decent exclusive game does not compel me to spend over $500 (either model plus game) for a new system. Now a game like Halo, Mario, Zelda, or FF could make peopel pay just about anything, but Sony didn't give us that. They gave us an new IP that on first glance reminds you of "that game" on "that other" system. GOW was the 360's best seller to date. Moving on, they pushed 1080p without including an HDMI cable. That we could have lived with that, if they hadn't given in to demand and included an HDMI port on the lower end model. That tells me that they knew there was a demand for full support right out of the box. While Sony never claimed complete BC with the PS3, reducing it in the market you've delayed the most is just plain stupid. I knew something was amiss when they announced Casino Royale for the European launch. And with more prelaunch exclusives going the way of the 360, things are only looking worse in the short term. Many of those exclusives were also new IP's. Another DMC or GOD type of exclusive on the PS3 might have cleaned all of theose PS3's off the shelf before the end of 2006. These blunders are in no way a permanent blow to Sony's overall popularity, but it will surely put them in an awkward position in years to come. No matter how long it takes for the next iteration of the PS console, we'll all be thinking back to the PS3 launch of 2006/07.

I said something about the pricing of VC games earlier, and I might have overreacted. While $10 is a bit steep for an N64 game, it is doable. $5 for an NES game is not. I still have my NES,SNES, and N64 in a box. Once a month I pull one out and play the hell out of it for an extended weekend. The Wii was going to let me have legal backups to some of my favorite games. But not at those prices. Do consone companies do crap like this on purpose just so that the emulator crowd can have something to do?

The editors do have a point, but you really can't compare the 360's problems with having two versions with Sony's. All MS had to was print more boxes of the one they want to sell more of, and add or remove peripherals as needed. The difference in Sony's two systems are internal. At my store wegot 50 360's on launch. 25 basic, 25 premium. I'm going to guess at maybe 30 PS3's split the same way. This Christmas is going to Nintendo or MS; point blank. The real race for Sony will begin in 2007, and they're gonna hit the ground running.

A lot of peopel are griping about the amount of PS3 titles VS. everyone else. Even the PSP has moer titles on this list than the DS. Why??? Remember when at the beginning of the article they said that these are the games the editors want to see. And for good reason, since the PS3 and the PSP have more to prove. Sony has to show that $600 is worth spending to play videogames. (Yes, there is a $500 PS3 coming out, but it's really not worth the money. Considering the differences between the 2 versions of the 360, Sony fanboys won't admit that they got screwed big time.) I don't care about a frickin' Blur-Ray player. PS3 stand for PLAYSTATION 3, not home entertainment media center. If you O On a personal note; I think the real reason the Blu-Ray/HD-DVD collaboration didn't work out was because Sony would've had to delay the PS3 yet again, and they couldn't afford to do that when it came to the console race. It was a smart business decision. (That, and they don't have the balls to remember Beta vs VHS.) BTW, sorry about the Dell comment. Even though Dell will cash the check, MS will still make a profit off the OS. Just Buy a 360. I'm getting mine after the Wii.

Is it just me, or was there a version of Chess on the 3.0 version of Windows??? Simple, black and white with a timer....... Either way, since I have excellent versions of Mahjong and Battle Chess/Chessmaster the extra priceisn't worth it. I know the premium version will feature more than just games, but it's just Windows.

sainraja First of all, not try to start a war, but you seem to be the one of the few people coeherently trying to argue their point. I totally agree about some systems having faulty units, but when it comes to comparing Sony to other companies, you have to add in other factors. The main one being that most of thier products period have a multitude of problems. Either they just plain suck in the first batches (IE Walkman, first portable cd players, Viao. And I don't even need to bring up the game systems to prove this.), or Sony had a great idea with bad implementation. (IE Beta, Minidisc, UMD.) Microsoft is the same way, only their flack comes from Bill Gates and Windows. No need to elaborate on that. Why no big noise about the Wii having probable launch problems? Because in the US most people only know them for consoles and games. Yeah, they make other products and have had their failures, but did you really have high hopes for R.O.B. and the VirtualBoy?? That, and the Wii isn't trying out some new chip, a new form of media storage, a new(shouldn't say new, how about funtional)online service, and a new form of copyright protection (on the movie side) all in the same box. BTW, "Do you think it would make sense for Sony to disable movie playback when the drive can do both? That is non-sense." Worked well for the Xbox first time around. On launch day the Wally I worked at sold more remotes than extra controllers and memory cards. Why do I remember this? Because I couldn't/can't conceive of buying a console to watch movies on. I have 3 computers and 4 DVD players in my house that can do that. And "people with a lot of bills aren't thinking about this system" ? I still work in retail. Those are the people running to gamestop every other day to see if the waiting list for the PS3 is up, and paying it off a paycheck at a time. They're at home right now, reading this and trying to figure out how many days late they'll be on rent if they have to use that check in Nov to finish paying off their PS3. They are the ones that buy a new system, no game, and go home and play GOW2 or FFXII.

In the end, I really want to see how this pans out. This next generation Sony has the most powerful system. (4 all those out of the loop, the ps2 was the least powerful on paper this generation. There are some people out there that still don't believe this, but get over it.)I personally can't bring myself to spend almost $1K in Nov., but i know others will. ($1k = I always buy 2 extra controllers and 2 games at least on launch days.) With FFXII and GOW2 being released within the same 2 month span, I wouldn't be surprised that if the top selling games on the PS3 launch date were actually PS2 games. Buying a 360 and a Wii for the same price seems like a better idea more and more each day. My thing is, how is Sony going to ensure more than a 5 year shelf life out of this thing? As soon as the price of producing the cell chip goes down enough to where they can fit 8 of them in a cell phone for $150 (just an exaggeration, abad one but you know what I mean) they'll announce that they're working on their nextgen system.

This looks like a pretty good feature. But I stopped reading posts after page 2, so if I say something somebody else wrote, forgive me. Hey guys(or girls), not everyone is a gaming GOD like you. They probably picked bosses they receive 20 million emails a day about. Personally, I also want to see him beat GOW on God mode. I've only seen 1 person do it, and that was a clip on youtube.com
