    "its time for the cocksucking sony morons to finally admit that the ps3 is an underpowered, overhyped turd. its so funny that the pc-in-a-box 360 pisses all over the supposed mighty cell lol



    sony - the ps1 was great, the ps2 was pig ugly but had a good choice of playable games...the p3s is not quite so ugly, but underpowered and has no good exclusive games - where did it all go wrong you stupid jap bastards.



    sort it for the ps4 or we'll nuke you all over again so you get the message you fuckwits. we have the bomb, you dont, and we WILL use it on you if you fuck us around with the next-next gen machine.



    you've been warned you little cunts. "

    They didn't rush it, it's a really well designed machine. Sloppy bloody testing though."



    That's generally called rushing it. They didn't allow enough time for it to be properly tested.

    Actually that's wrong, have a look at this quote from Dan Houser in 2004.



    "The danger is currently the storage medium (DVD), and one we thing weíre all praying for in the next round of hardware is that they donít just go, ĎItís DVD againí."



    You can see that Rockstar were hoping for a next-gen disc format in both consoles.

    "There's also not enough RAM in the PS3, and the Blu-ray data transfer rate is much too slow. They put it in there for movies."



    PS3 and Xbox 360 have the same amount of RAM. Also, despite what MS wants us to believe some developers are constrained by dvd. Rockstar, Epic, Bioware, Tecmo etc have all made comments on dvd size being a limitation for this gen. I think both are great consoles, and I own a 360, but I'm not pretending the 360 doesn't have it's own share of faults, just because it's the only one I own.

  • PS3 "not hard" to develop for

  • Qbert2k 15/06/2007

    MS's response:



    "Sony is facing the fact the Xbox 360 (thanks to being available a year earlier) is the default development platform for almost every game studio and publisher in the industry. Itís been built into the tool chain and processes, and primary development is happening on the Xbox 360 for almost every game you can find.



    Thereís a reason why the Xbox 360 version is almost always the version shown to press and analysts for new titles Ė often, the PS3 version isnít even started yet, or is well behind in development."

    "I'm not going to spin it, just come out with the truth, I was a PS1 and PS2 owner who felt that Sony took the piss with the PS3. I can afford most things but PS3 has no reason to be 400 quid, games don't warrant it so why should I support them this time?. I own a Wii and 360 and it covers every fucking base when it comes to console gaming. PS3 needs to go the way of the Dreamcast fast so we can keep console gaming cheap and for the masses like it's always been. "

    That's quite funny. You think any company with a monopoly (Nintendo is not aiming for the same market as ms/sony imho) especially MS, is not going to exploit that, no competition, charge whatever you like, release shoddy products, that would be great. Your thinking is short-sighted. If gaming is going to stay cheap we need competition.

    That's just how much it costs to launch into the console business against Sony, who were in their prime. It was never going to be easy, but they've got the metal to go through it. Quitting the games industry now when things are improving for them would be dumb, that would just be throwing all of that money away. Instead, They can see it through until it becomes profitable, there's not many companies who can take that, but Microsoft are not like most companies are they?



    Yes, I agree. That's why I laugh when people talk about Apple or Sega re-entering the console market. MS are probably the only company with the vested interest and enough billions in cash reserves to seriously contend with Sony and that was for last gen. What it would cost to try and enter at this stage? Much more than $4billion I bet.

    Yeah because they all bought a PS3 just to play flow and nothing else. Just like everyone bought a 360 just to play geometry wars.

  • Free Linux on PS3 this year

  • Qbert2k 18/10/2006

    "Qbert2K there are already millions of potential linux machines in everones homes they are called PC's"



    I would say that there is a difference here between an open format like the PC with endless different configurations and a closed format like the ps3. If the PS3 linux is user friendly enough and doesn't require you to install thousands of drivers, codecs etc just to get things to run, then a lot more people would be inclined to try it. If this is the only and official ps3 distro then it would also have the plus of having a large userbase and hence more support for it, unlike the PC where you have about a million different distros each with their own loyal fanbase.

    "So if you take the model that you still need bits of plastic for data and streaming, using your words, fine. I don't think that's the model going forward. It's our view right now - consumers are telling us more and more as memory is becoming cheaper and HDDs are becoming bigger and the ability to store things... I have what I think is the optimal set-up. I have a Media Centre PC with a 250Gb hard drive connected to my Xbox 360. If you think you have to have huge optical disc storage formats, fine."



    See, this just affirms to me what I said in the other thread about MS not really being committed to hd-dvd. They see all media in the future being stored on hdd and streamed from Windows (vista, xpmc etc) to the console in the living room, it's a win-win situation for them.

  • No denial from Xbox Japan boss stokes Resi 5 exclusivity chatter

  • Qbert2k 26/09/2006

    If this turns out to be true. It'll just confirm in my mind what I've suspected. That the games industry is on life-support, and the Xbox 360 is not designed for the future, just for the sole purpose of killing off the competition. I mean if MS were serious about the console business they'd try to win the minds of gamers with original and interesting franchises but assuming this is true, then there basically just trying to brute force a win by using their enormous cashpile to buy all the big name franchises.

    "To be fair to EA, they have their fair share of "gameplay" games. It's mostly the output of Maxis/Will Wright, but it's there. Do you think Spore would get the green light from any other publisher? A project with so much tech risk? Procedural animation on its own is a helluva task, not to mention the incredible customisation of the game world *and* making the game look so fun. "



    They did actuallly try to cancel the Sims several times before it came out, but Will Wright stood his ground and it eventually got released.

  • EGTV: 'Blu-Ray is key for games'

    "The average game size on xbox was approx 4 gb, the average increase in game sizes from generation to generation is 77%...

    Well... Looks like sony is serving more bullshit"



    Where did they get that figure from? If the average last-gen game (say PS1 or Saturn) was around 400-500Mb (~x3 for an square-enix rpg) and the average xbox is around 4gb then that's an 800% increase right there. Considering that these next-gen consoles are making the leap to HD It's possible the jump in size will be comparable.
