I love these threads. Around and around we go, where it stops no-one knows.

I think like others that 350 is the magic number and by Xmas we'll be looking at something near that.

Don't worry so much 360 owners, just cos something newer is out, your trusty old beast doesn't need constant defending. Let the games do that.

Harrison urges calm on PS3 BC

Now that is pure arrogance. People who have paid 425 have a right to be slightly upset at the news that the machine has been changed significantly and he tells them to calm down. What a tit.

PS3 "Home" rumoured

I think this is a great idea. It may not be Sony's idea but I'm glad there including it in the PS3. Wouldn't life be odd if once a good idea was used once it became redundant.

Sony boss Reeves dismisses talk of PS3 delay

mankell

12 years ago

I simply can't understand why so many people want sony to fail. Will it make them feel better about buying a 360?

Whether or not someone has chosen a next-gen platform already why does that make them want to trawl the internet to find snippets of info against the competitors.

I've got a 360 but I still want the ps3 to be a good console so maybe I'll get one of those as well.

Can someone explain please? Is it just smply football mentality (my team is better than yours etc)

Well you can't have a console AND games can you. Asking a bit too much.

Looking a good euro line up for launch though.

I agree 'future proof' is a bit of a wanky term but I think the PS3 will be around longer than the 360.

Lara Croft Tomb Raider: Legend

mankell

Good review but as short as the game!!

A genuine return to form for TR but some truly atrocious moments - motorcycling would have best been left out altogether.

3rd person action/adventures are unfortunately on the decline thanks to the rise of generic FPS's but this is a great example of how it can be done very well.

Can't make my mind up whether to get this.

Does the landscape have to load in when you leave an area like FF and Grandia or is it a complete 3d world as in DQ8?

It's extraordinary quality, that's the starting point. If people are seeking the ultimate machine, the PS3 is clearly the best spec machine as far as next-gen goes. As with all things in life, you have to pay for quality. It is absolutely beautiful to look at and you are getting virtual interactive cinema in the comfort of your own home. It's a very compelling selling point and Sony just has to educate people that yes, it's a lot of money, but it'll be worth it.

You couldn't pay for that kind of sales pitch.

Sony lukewarm on PSP emu talk

mankell

12 years ago

Can't say I'm really excited about getting old games designed for a home system with 2 sticks onto a handheld with 1.
The PSP has got to be the worstly supported console out there with f*** all dedicated game development to speak of so they throw us this slighly chewed bone of a ps1 emu.
We all paid alot of money for this handheld and the quality of games is appalling.
Don't pat sony on the back for this afterthought, FFS.

PlayStation 3 to cost 425

mankell

12 years ago

@daveo

You've not added sales tax on for the States. I think that varies from 0 to 8% but your right its a question not just for Sony but for other international manufacturers and politicians.

If you cut me in half I've got Sony written through my bones but I will not pay 425 for a bloody games console.

In fact I've just bought a 360 this afternoon. So long Sony you've just lost a loyal fan.

Spot on.

We all love our consoles but when someone starts taking the piss then enoughs enough.

Plan of action>

Buy a 360 now. Enjoy Next-gen gaming. Wait until enough PS3 games have been release to make a nice back catalogue. PS3 price drop because sales have stalled due to fucking criminal price. Sell 360. Buy PS3. Enjoy.

So simple its scary.

You know what the problem is - fecking Blu-ray. I don't want it. No-one fecking wants it.
I want a games console. I don't want the PS3 to play films on, or to cook my tea, or wash my socks or pull me off when the missus has got the painters in.
Take off the price of that piece of unproven crap and your laughing and game over MS.

Us gamers are just the pawns in the centre of a bigger war then just consoles.
