Plus Microsoft is trying to appeal to the casual gamer and people who aren't gamers at all. That might just be their downfall. The hardcore gamers might start to feel out of place with their approach.


But thats the genius of Microsoft's approach.  Most people aren't "hardcore gamers".  The majority of the market are casual gamers and people who just buy games on whims.  Microsoft knows that by appealing to the casual gamer they will be appealing to a bigger market than Sony or Nintendo.

Yeah, but the issue is that their approach sucks. They're letting you design t-shirts and even skate parks. Do they really think that will catch on? I mean, we have Cafepress.com for that kind of stuff. I'd respect their plan if it showed any promise, but it doesn't.

Because I can

Well, the 360 titles so far aren't that good. ANd just because Halo is one of the titles doesn't mean it'll be good. Plus Microsoft is trying to appeal to the casual gamer and people who aren't gamers at all. That might just be their downfall. The hardcore gamers might start to feel out of place with their approach.


I'm very excited about Perfect Dark:Zero.  The one game that begins with a "K", can't remember it's name for the life of me looks interesting.  NfS looks like it'll be pretty good.  Half of their current release titles appeal to me, so I don't know wtf you're talking about.

And it wont be their downfall, like DK said, they're appealing to a much larger market by appealing to the casual gamers.  And by appealing to those who aren't gamers, and making them become gamers, they open up a whole new market and "reel" in a bunch of new players.  So their approach makes more sense than just appealing to fan boys who will buy anything they sell, no matter how good or bad.

Honestly, I beleive that Playstation is the worst of the three. I'm actually looking forward to the Revolution, not only for the great graphics that usually accompany Nintendo Systems, but for the more adult themed games. And hopefully a better controller.

The Xbox 360 looks to be the best of them all, but once again, the faceplate idea is corny. Unless my faceplate has dolphins. Cause that would be the shyte.

Now, this isn't to say that the PS3 is going to suck, because it won't, but I just think that the Revolution and the 360 are going to be better.

I won't be getting any of them though. Not until the price hits rock-bottom.

It will be interesting to see what the Revolution's controller will be like, as they didn't show it at E3


Thanks to DarkKanti for the Sig!

I'm buying the XBOX 360 first, then maybe the PS3 later.  On the XBOX, I was impressed with all of the original and high quality titles I bought (not PC ports).   With all of the games like Heavenly Sword, Frame City Killer, Gears of War, Project Gotham Racing 3, Ridge Racer 6, Amped 3, Prey, Half-Life 2 (I have a crappy PC, so I never got the chance to play it), Dead Rising, Ninety Nine Nights, Resident Evil 5, Halo 3, Need for Speed: Most Wanted and Perfect Dark Zero on the way, I'm definately buying it.  I've never seen this large of an assortment of early generation titles for a system that I've wanted to play.  Well, Halo 3 probably wont be early generation, but I wanna see how the saga ends (hopefully it will end...).
