already have a 360, but i'd rather be given a second 360 than a ps3. that thing's a debacle.
sony's mucked it all up all so bad i dont even wanna support their gaming division anymore. every day they've got more bad news.
ratchet and clank sold like 67k in the first month, and its been their most promising game so far. what a joke.
[/quote]75k actually but thats not really any better... sales dont determine how good a game is but how successful the game is. though i think it sucks since resistance has sold over 1 mil copies but ratchet is slacking... goes to show you that next gen is all about shooting games
which is bad news for sony since the ps3 is adventure/action titles
though honestly i havent really seen an objective response yet
anyways christopher why kind of games are you into? otherwise just asking a vague question is just going to get regular fan boy responses and rarely any real help. also name some games in the past that you really loved, and things that you care for(ie: wireless , media formats, and etc) because saving money to me is always a big thing. when i invest into a console i look at exclusives and what it has to offer and what my wallet can afford. state all of those things and i will try to be as unbias as i can to help you get the most out of your money.
oh and keepjeepin... ps3 online play is a joke? its been pretty great to me. i guess i must have been blessed with a good ps3 and internet connection
edit: and of course you can go blindly buy a console for one or two games... like many people do lol
i wasnt making a comment on whether rachet and clank is any good, im sure its quite good. i was making a comment about the future success of the console based on the success of probably the best game that's launched for it in a year of production.
newer 360s should have the bugs worked out. ive got friends that are still on their first one for over a year (mine is my original as well), and i've had friends that have gone through more than one. that does suck.
i dont think keepjeepin was saying online doesnt work, i think he was addressing the fact that it lacks a good deal of the functionality that makes XBoxLIVE so good. being able to play online is really only one part of the equation, and for sony to be running the less-complex online service while claiming that their system is about much more than games seems somewhat contradictory.
sony just cut the price of their dev kits in half, so maybe we'll see devs more willing to come over to sony, but in the past, they offer lackluster support to studios and charge them an arm and a leg for the privelage of being on their console, so i wouldnt exlect much of a game catalogue for another year.
i wouldnt call me a fanboy, ive just been following the race from the beginning, and am at a point where i dont want to get a PS3 on principle, because i dont want to reward a company that would make the anti-customer decisions their making. the way they're acting, they shouldnt last in a consumer-driven economy. and if the R&C numbers are an early indication, it looks like that might be what happens.
