Well since the Game forum is now in internet hell with the Fan Art Forum (RIP Using Snipe's side for image hosting), I figured all you extreme nerds would enjoy debating over the latest and greatest video games out today.

Sony sucks, they destroyed Playstation, end of story. Normally we'd discuss that , but I'm just putting that out there right now for you to know that I am right you are wrong.

Now bask with Gears of War! Bask angry

I bought my nephew Justice League Heroes (ps2) for Christmas. It looked pretty cool. Martian Manhunter kicks ass on it...

I've been playing Grand Theft Auto: Liberty City Stories non-stop before, during, and after my tests and it rocks. I've played Vice City years ago until near-completion, and I'm just as hooked right now. Great game.

I just got done with Oblivion...... yes.... you can get done with Oblivion. That game owned me for 9 months and nearly made my 360 explode.

Grand Theft Auto was fun years ago, but it's kinda aged a bit. Weird saying that, but I'm enjoying Saints Row much more than I did all the other Theft Autos. shocked

Id like to point out that I pwned Clerk at Gears of War. We did co-op for the 1st level with him doing most of the harder shit since I was getting my feet wet still. Upon completion all of awards points were given to me and not him. cheesy So the key is folks, be the #2 player if you want kudos.

Gears of War is a good game, I own it and have beaten it....not on insane yet (not because of difficulty mind you) I just find the game to get old........ I have to let it rest for a little bit before I put it back in and play some more. The online play is sick! I suck at it but its pretty cool.


Halo 2 however.......truly eternal for online play, i play religiously, not the best but I love to play. Anyone who has Xbox Live, hit me up at BatmansIronFist!


Ps3, I see going downhill, just personal opinion though.


Justice League Heroes, though not out for the major line consoles was still able to rank in the top 3 for games of the year....definitely worth checking out, ill be renting soon!

I guess I don't follow the news about the next-gen consoles (I know I don't) but I want a PS3. Why wouldn't I? What's going wrong with sony and the PS3?

Apart from the high price tag and lack of top quality games so far, nothing but the usual shit that happens with most new consoles

Within the next six months it'll have some great games. And if sites like Play.com and Amazon.co.uk are correct, Europe will be getting a very good selection of launch games

Well everyone knows it'll chug along like Xbox and Gamecube, but the key event everyone is laughing about is how Sony shot themselves in the foot many a time and lost the lead to a thing called the "Wii."

On the games note, all I have seen so far is the Final Fantasy games and Metal Gear Solid 4. It lost Virtua Fighter 5 and Assassins Creed as exclusives to the 360.

And seriously......600$?

All of that data is based on units sold of Wii consoles vs. PS3s. PS3 brought in way more money than Nintendo.

Additionally, Nintendo shipped 4 million Wii consoles by Christmas whereas Sony just recently got finished shipping the last of its first 2 million PS3s.

Finally, and probably more importantly, while Sony only sold 491,000 PS3s to Nintendo's 604,000 Wii consoles... people actually went out and bought 1.4 million PS2s. Personally, I think that figure shows that when there was a lack of PS3s people settled for PS2s or most folks are waiting for the price to drop. Nintendo did sell the most of one console with the Nintendo DS selling 1.6 million units but Sony sold 953,200 PSPs.

As for games, Tekken 6, MGS4, FFXIII, RE5, Devil May Cry 4, and Virtua Fighter 5 will help PS3 pull ahead of the Wii. XBox 360 gets Virtua Fighter months after PS3, btw.

Personally, I didn't get a PS2 because of the price when it initially released. I paid full price eventually just because I wanted Resident Evil Code Veronica X. I'm sure the fact that everything at launch sucked had a huge impact on sales. Wii had Zelda. I think January 2008 would be a good time to have this discussion again.

I'd have to say that with these large fucking numbers it's hard to say that any of these companies are in any trouble thus far. It can all only be interpretation of figures and predictions of what said figures mean in the future. For now, all three companies made a shitload of money.

Yeah... I should shut up. Sorry, guys... ignore what I said before.

Note: I am not being sarcastic. Seriously, ignore what I said.

Yeah, it's estimated the PS3 will cost 599,- in the Eurozone, which is quite a lot of money. I'm not about to spend that. I'll wait when I've finished with my PS2 games and my study and see again.
I love Final Fantasy XIII en MGS4 already, though. Damn those trailers are good.

I guess I'm just a PlayStation fan.
