  • Haze not in HD, has 4GB install

  • thinktank 19/05/2008

    "The rejection of the HD consoles all over the world means they'll be lucky to even survive this generation, have you seen the Japanese charts lately?
    If your fancy console with a new GTA game can't outsell a console bundled with a non-game about balancing on cheap plastic board in the good ol USA you know you're fucked."

    But the only one making any money from the Wii's success is ninty, all the major devs make their money on PS2/3/x360

    I think GoW2 looks promising, I was waiting to fight a Bumak all the way through GoW1,

    As for the usual dribble on these boards, what exactly is stopping me going to the shops and buying a PS3 with KZ2 or RFoM2 if i decide i want to?

    How the fuck to any of you win anything? How the fuck does gears loose? What the fuck are you morons talking bout?

  • Sony unveils GTA IV PS3 bundle

  • thinktank 23/04/2008

    "Go and play your £40 a year XBOX Live and leave us PS3 owners alone."

    For fucks sake, you missed my point completely at what stage is anything I've said an 'attack ' on PS3 owners, my attack is squarely aimed at narrow minded pillocks (another classic) like yourself. I'll shorten the whole the whole thing down to match your intellect and phrase it in such a way you can understand.

    YOU MAKE YOUR CHOICE, ok still with me? This is the hard bit, LET OTHER PEOPLE MAKE THEIR CHOICE. Right let it sink in.... IF THEIR CHOICE IS DIFFERENT TO YOURS, ok really pay attention now!! IT DOESN'T MEAN THAT THEY ARE WRONG, winding up now nearly finished! THIS IS CALLED A PERSONNEL OPINION.

    Now if any of that went over your head see me after class and we can see about getting you some extra lessons.

    By the way when you start defining yourself by what console you own that’s really fucking sad, 'us PS3 owners'…………. sort it out swam.

    Swam I have no one blocked, I am not really troubled by words on my screen that much.

    If I'm singling you out swam I'm sorry but you appear to be by far the most prevalent poster on this matter. It just baffles me why you construe some one else's opinion that one console is better suited to there needs as an attack on your purchasing decision. Why you further feel the need to 'set them straight' only clarifies the fact that you have no have grasp on the concept of a personnel opinion.

    For example I prefer live to psn but that doesn't mean I think every one who elected to use psn is ‘wrong’ because they don't agree with me, why the fuck do I care? If there having a blast using psn and I’m enjoying live where is the fucking problem??? I’ll tell where it is, its right here with wazzacks (love that word!!) like you who would rather aimlessly pontificate about how there opinion is the decisive conclusion on things gaming than do some thing enjoyable, like uhh I dunno play your fucking PS3.

    Also to all those people justifying the price of live, why you feel the compulsion to defend MS for charging you play online on system you already bought, with a game you already bought, on a service the has massive profit margin’s selling digital media, which on top of everything now has advertising!!! Your loyalty is as miss guided as poor swam here, personally my relationship with MS ends when I get the product/service and they get my money.

    Think you guys could do me a favour and take a long hard look for your individuality.

    Swam if the PS3 does every thing you say it does then why have you spent the last few hours defending it / attacking the 360?

    This article is about the price of a new PS3 bundle, you clearly already have a PS3 so why do you even give a fuck???

    Do you think your the second coming of Christ brought to earth to steer us ill informed gamers from making the 'wrong choice', thanks for the kind though but I’d much rather you piss off.

    If you believe in the electronic box sat under your TV (or in your bed??) so much then why aren’t you playing it instead pebble dashing your verbal diarrhoea all over this forum?

    I don't for one minute think you are biased, just that that you hold a dislike for MS as you say. I too agree i would be terrible if MS was to gain a manopoly or any of the big three for that matter.

    Good debate! Off to footy now though so catch you later.

    I don't want to argue indeffinately about MS impact on Japanese games, i think we can agree to dissagree.

    What i think even you will admit is that Japanese games would have become less popular with or without MS invlovement, primarily due to dwindling demand for such games and the increasing demand for western games.

  • thinktank 13/02/2008


    I still don't agree, in what way does MS nature anyone? They buy developers and acquire publishing rights to mainly western style games but I don’t see how they are hurting Japanese devs?

    I think the lack of Japanese style games is a direct result of a shift in market trends in Japan and a year on year increase of the games market in the US/Europe. Like I said before supply and demand, there is more demand for western style games so majority of games produced are therefore of a western style.

    At this point not even Japanese gamers are buying traditional Japanese style games, there all buying casual games on handheld devices. That’s your reason for the decline in Japanese style games not MS or any other western company for that mater.

    I think you have a bit of grudge against MS, its not as bad as some on here.

    P.s. nice to have civil discussion on here for once!!

    I don't see how MS has any influence over what genres the industry focuses on. Surely it’s a question of supply and demand.

    As for your argument that a console developer should only make games that’s as much a personnel preference as you preferring red to blue. Thus an irrelevant point.

    You may have a debateable point about shelling out for multiple systems, but the disadvantages of having only one platform would far out way the initial financial benefits.

    Sorry if I come across as argumentative, its how I write at work

    You fanboys, can any of you give me a plausible benefit you or any gamer would gain from either the 360 or the PS3 failing?

    You have just spent 200+ posts on the subject so I would love to hear the fruits of your labours.

  • thinktank 09/06/2007


    I think people are more pissed off about how bad the review is rather than the actual result,

    I mean the author makes the asumption that the reader has played H2 and reviews it as a port instead of as a stand alone game. He doesn't even so much as link back to the original H2 review on xbox.

    I wont list all the things wrong with this review, it would take too long.
    Reply 0
  • thinktank 09/06/2007

    In contrast to what is out now on pc and across all platforms in general id say H2 on vista does deserve a 6. But the reasons given in this review are poor,

    9 time out of 10 EG get it wright but just as 1up and ign are subject to scoreing games too highly due to hype EG tend to overcompensate. This just seems like the reviewer has been given a chance to "have a shot at a halo game".

    If it wasn't for the text this review would be spot on.

    I agree with most of what you say Papa, but the yank voice over is shocking. If the EG review doesn't pick up on that i will be shocked and if you can't turn it off i'm not buying.
