Why do you keep referring to this as a top-tier phone? It quite clearly isn't.
Yeah this retails for about 300-350 doesn't it? Only a mid range this one, get an S3 review out for a proper top tier phone.

Game are terrible now, had to go there to get ICO + Shadow of Colossus and despite having racks full of the boxes they only had one copy left. So people behind me were going up with boxes off the shelves to be told there was none left. Also took them about 5mins to find the sodding disk, even cex are better now, and thats saying something.

"PS3 era: -

2006 - $69,129,058 (small profit made due to slow PS3 sales and high PS2 sales)
2007 - ($1,970,923,859)
2008 - ($1,079,994,103)
2009 - ($664,313,787)
2010 - ($856,245,250) (first 3 quarters only)

Total loss = ($4,502,347,941) "

Erm I'd question those 2010 figures since the article is about sony making a profit this year....

Greenberg: Kinect pricing "speculative"

Guitarnerd87

@cen4pgb

Yeah very good point, though you only need one eye toy so without a game and eye toy the price of an extra move should be a bit lower, 30-40 would probably be about right if the 60 figure is correct. I'm also guessing the nunchuck type accesory comes with it.

@Steroyd

haven't Sony already said it'll be about 60 for move + eyetoy + a game? I think microsoft will either have to have it sub 100 plus a game otherwise the casual Market probably won't bite. Or need to show a proper killer app to get the hardcore in, Sony have that same problem but the lower all inclusive price might suck the casuals in.

Xbox 360 vs. PlayStation 3: Round 26

Except what I was saying is that the resolution deficit is a big issue in terms of image quality for me :S
IMHO Crisper Image >> Too many effects


Obviously that opinion does suck when PS3 games are covered in quincux!

Guitarnerd87

I don't like the way the resolution deficit on the 360 for split/second is just glossed over as unimportant but screen tear on the ps3 is made a big deal leading to a wobbly image. I didn't notice any on the ps3 demo, unless it was just not a very demanding level leading to lower stress on the engine. For me resolution is an important issue, it's whats held me back from getting RDR.

Great article! Gave a good insight into the differences between 360/ps3, interesting to hear the ps3 had an edge blur the face off didn't see! It's a good example of the developer playing to each systems strengths, higher AA on 360, edge detection + blur on ps3, the way multi-plat should be!

Differences between the games basicly come down to whether you prefer slightly more post processing, like the motion blur, or the higher resolution. I've always preferred the crisper image with high resolution, though I know some people hate the sight of even one jaggie.

Well yes you do see the difference, resolution only accounts for so much. Since I've done a CS degree as my undergrad I find these articles interesting if you're really that interested. And yes the AA matters as you still get jaggies on an SD tv. I don't really see the problem you have though?

Yeah I get I have an sdtv, my only comment was about DF referring to the 360 as WE and then referring to the ps3. My point was that it shows a little inherent bias that DF considers the 360 as it's console and the ps3 as the other, as if they approach the comparisons as "lets see how the ps3 compares to our xbox version." I don't have a clue how that affects me having an sdtv??

Fair enough if all you meant was about people who could have both, but what you said was "Why we all don't have any many games platforms as possible is beyond me." And after explaining that not all of us could afford it you basically said it must be because I'm not careful with money! I think it's quite obvious why I would get so pissed of with it, I don't like not being able to afford more, I'd have both if I could but to say it must be my fault is just insulting.

Oh and to send me an alert for disagreeing with you *facepalm*

What point are you trying to make? That I should be ashamed to call myself a gamer or am not welcome on this site because I've not put every last penny I can afford into owning multiple consoles or just pouring as much as possible into gaming? My point is that as a student, as many visitors to this website will be, putting so much money into multiple consoles is just too big an investment. Maybe there is a possibility for me to own multiple consoles, but I would have zero money for anything else. I don't have a problem if thats your choice but I think it's arrogant to look down on others, or put down others opinions just because they haven't done this.

Well said, for someone to just say "oh you mustn't manage your money well enough" if you can't afford multiple consoles, pc, games and hdtv is incredibly ignorant and arrogant. It annoys me the more I read that comment. I run a ps3 I got through a phone contract through a 21" sdtv, only getting 2nd hand games through trade ins. I have more important things to spend my money on than a 360, namely eating and paying bills.

I live off 51 a week, which is probably the best I've had all year, was 18 at one point. A large portion of users here will probably be students on similar budgets, blowing 400-500 on two consoles, more on a gaming pc just isn't possible. And that's not even taking into account the cost of games.

"Sony's mammoth network of first-party games studios has produced astonishing software in recent times. Uncharted 2: Among Thieves and God of War III see the PS3 producing state-of-the-art visuals and gameplay that seem to hurdle the hardware limitations of the console running them"

That really is an awful quote, so obviously trying to imply that the ps3 is more limited than the 360. So it must just be amazing developers on ps3 and not more powerful hardware, trying to imply the 360 could do it better.

More than just bias, it's fanboyism.

Final Fantasy XIII: Endgame

Guitarnerd87

Is it not that the 360 is using the crappy bink codec because the game switches from cutscene to ingame so quickly they need a codec which will play the video with no delay? I know when I play an mkv file theres usually a 3-4 second delay to play the video properly. Could be with the better codec square would have to recode the entire game to incorporate a different video buffereing system to compensate. Whereas using bink the videos could be quickly and simply switched.
