    249 quid would be okay if PSP GO has full Demonoid support.

    This is about as good an idea as a film based on Jet Set Willy. Hopefully they will retain the massive levels of homoerotica that appeals to its intended audience.

    391 is a reasonable sample size. They are clearly using some measure derived from 'Big 5 personality theory (like the NEO) which generally have extensive normative data available. There is no indication what other measures were used but if they were standardised it is easy to infer atypical relationships. Or some such shit.

    Darren...



    >>I'd agree completely with what you said which is why I'd expect the PS3 to have a larger audience, a great diversity of software and a mixed casual/hardcore fanbase like the PS2 did...



    Yes, you would have thought that wouldn't you. You'd be totally fucking wrong though.



    >>The Xbox 360 is massive in the US but then those Yanks love shooting and blowing things up... online!



    Yes, online gaming is shit isn't it. Hell, the internet is a waste of time. And those wacky Americans! When will they learn. They should be put in camps I am sure you agree.



    >>Sony are less concerned with that and the fact that their own online service doesn't require you to pay a £40 per annum subscription means it's more ideally suited to casual gamers anyway...



    Yes their mass market appeal is paying off in spades. By only charging a meagre sum for the console, people will think the online play is a bargain! Of course, when they actually use it...



    >>it's easy to see why the PS3 will likely appeal to a wider variety of people than the Xbox 360. What are Microsoft doing exactly? Nothing as far as I can see... :?



    Open your fucking eyes! They are making games for one thing. This is a tried and tested strategy in the 'gaming' business.

    "Honestly, what do you 'bots think will happen once the PS3 does get good games, as it inevitably will?"



    Well, I don't know.... Maybe, "that is a good game", "Why the fuck has this taken so long?" and "Why is this so expensive?". When will you people think "Why didn't I buy a 360 ages ago and play tons of great games, then 2 years later when this arrived I could have bought the console for half the price and not been such a whiny fanboy heroically rewriting reality in the face of overwhelming evidence that the PS3 was a piss poor purchase for so long"...



    Xbox 360 - badly made, great online service, a good many brilliant games

    PS3 - nicely constructed and styled (I hesistate to say well-made as countless developers argue it isn't) mediocre online service but very few grade A games.



    If you like 'games' which one sounds like the one to purchase?



    I'll give you a clue, the answer has been the same for a few years...

    How much fucking variety do you want? There are hundreds of games covering just about every possible genre. Unless you want a side-scrolling German scat-sex themed platformer you are going to find something you like. And if you do want one, the eventual PS3 port will have a worse framerate but appopriately be much more brown....

  • Dante_Cubit 13/02/2008

    They never account for the change in market size. These comparisons are fucking pointless and anyone who ever buys anything based upon a supposed purchasing trend is an idiot. Does anyone ever do that anyway? No. They buy the one that is the 'coolest', the one that is cheapest or the one that their mates have. Did you know that more people are buying bread than ever before? Quick, rush out and get some... Reply 0

  • Xbox 360 vs. PS3 Face-Off: Round Eight

  • Dante_Cubit 07/02/2008

    Let's face it. 90% of games are utter cock snot. If you find a game you actually do want and all things are equal on the 360 and PS3, you'll buy the 360 version (because live is actually the best thing MS ever did, and it is probably cheaper too). To actually want to buy a PS3 game it needs to be either a) better or b) an exclusive. Sony should just realise that their reality distortion field isn't going to let them have another PS2 like success. But hey, Blu-ray!! Great, now I can watch shite films with mediocre transfers on a machine using as much electricity as 4 laptops... Reply 0

    A turn-based, hard sci-fi, cyberpunk rpg with music by Vangelis.

  • Blood Bowl

  • Dante_Cubit 20/12/2007

    The board game was amazing. This doesn't look like a turn-based strategy game though and getting the balance right would be very difficult in real-time (super fast fucking elves scoring every time I'd think). It has massive potential if done properly though. Now if they added dungeon bowl and the ability to trade star players etc it would be the best sports game ever. Reply 0
