    Er no, just to have a working console with online functionality, the xbox turned out the most expensive for me.

    This is like being proud of the fact that the PSP is now outselling the original DS. Does it really matter at this point? The race is already over.

    Having been a "gamer" since my Vic 20 days (yes I'm that old!) I agree thet the most fun I have had with gaming overall is with the 360. I currently have a 360,ps3,wii and handhelds and have had nearly every console going back over many a year. Never been a PCgamer apart from the sumblime CM2 years ago, so can't really comment about those.

    360 all the way for me. Re consoles sold, agree with the chaps that at this point does it matter at all.

    Has to be my favourite console of all time too.

    In a way this is partly because it came out before the PS3. It's always been my primary console. If the PS3 had come out before the 360 then I might well have just bought that and never bothered with the 360.

    By that measure, the PSOne or PS2 wouldn't be the successes they were. Consumer sales and sales offers decide when a console is done, not some individual on the internet.

    Only the other day, my friend paid 230 for a PS3 super slim 500GB, with 3x free AAA games + Spiderman film download, and 10 free store credit(he promptly swapped for 10 PSN voucher).

    Assuming he's already used CEX for the games, his real cost is below 150. But if you actually put the console at SRP 150, the sales would be much greater. So PS3 is retaining its value and sales in consumer's eyes without racing to the bottom on price. PS2 sold most of its sales below SRP of 130. So by that estimation alone, Sony will sell 140million PS3s at the very least, before sales rates drop to end-of-generation-levels.

    tbf it'd disastrous for sony if they hadnt, they have a whole extra country of sales.

    If Japan ever come around to the idea of a western console things could be interesting.

    Also it'll be interesting to see wot the WIIu does, as its nearly upon us and im not so sure people now what the hell it is.

    I'll go with that. I've not had so much fun with games, or discovering games since the Amiga. Plus XBL just completely changed the way I consume and play games. Absolutely amazing.

    So why should the Xbox died after 2010? In past two years I have enjoyed several excellent exclusives , seen the best visuals in new games and played the best versions of the majority of multiplatform games. Xbox live as a service continues to expand, I could go on for ages.
    You are doctor fraud though.
  • Deleted user 17 November 2012 13:15:51
    It still has exclusives and they have recently changed the dashboard to re focus on gaming after a poor last version.
    So 2012 is still as good as 2010. Infact it is even better, this generation has never had many exclusives between ps3 and 360.
    95% are multiple platforms and for one reason or another 360 often gets the best version.
    No matter which console you have it has been an excellent generation, both are outstanding machines. I personally just prefer Xbox live to psn, I prefer the controller and I prefer the limited exclusives

    What a strange thread to be having as we go into the 7th year of this generation. Had it happened in the second or third year (like it should have) then it might have meant something.

    This particular console war has gone on longer than WWII, I doubt it'll spawn a load of games at least.

    This space left intentionally blank.

    WiiU

    Speak the truth hussy!

  • Deleted user 17 November 2012 14:07:47
    Wii u got an excellent chance of bombing, if it was not Nintendo it would be almost a cert.
    Mostly terrible launch game list with a console that is no better than 6/7 year old machines at over 100 quid more. Ouch. No wonder several execs of them game companies have voiced concerns.
