I might go buy a X360 and PS3 today.

Discussion in 'General Chat' started by Aych Es Vee, Aug 17, 2007.

  1. Harvey Norman is doing a 30 months interest free, no deposit thing. Spend a minimum of $1200. Dont really wanna go over $3000.

    PS3 = $988 with extra controller + Resistance & Motorstorm
    X360 Premium = $549

    I can hook them both up to my Dell 2405fpw moniter. (I think can only do 1080i through component, and doesnt have HDMI)



    OR, I can get a 42" LCD (HDMI port, I'm guessing component ports too obviously, 1366x768) For about $2000 (instead of using monitor)

    So thats about $3500 all up.


    I'm really not sure though, lol. Cant think of many games on PS3 or X360 that I'm desperate to get right now. Dont mind some of the GTA clones on X360 though. And I'm really waiting for Final Fantasy and Gran Turismo 5 on PS3, so I'll eventually get one anyway.

    If I put a mod chip in the 360.... will that stuff it? ... like, will it update while connected to the net and an update detect the chip or something?

    Also, is it easy to put emulators on either the 360 or PS3 to play like Genesis/SNES games and what not?
     
  2. what good racing and rpg games are on either console?
     
  3. motorstorm is shit dont buy it. Get Forza2. and dirt if its out over there. the 360 version of Dirt is superior.
     
  4. actually, stuff the PS3 for now I think.
    Maybe a good video camera instead of PS3.

    I'm always terrible before I think I'm going to spend >$500 on something, haha
     
  5. A wog with a credit card is a very bad thing
     
  6. Why are Bravia 3LCDs so cheap?
     
  7. The only worthwhile game on PS3 is Warhawk: don't waste your time/money on anything else.
     
  8. I could buy all that right now. I'd rather not use up a whole $3000 of saved money on that though. Paying off slowly is better.

    How many times have we talked about this? <A BORDER="0" HREF="http://www.supercars.net/PitLane?displayFAQ=y"><IMG BORDER="0" SRC="pitlane/emoticons/angry.gif"></A>

    Codemasters worked with Sony to build the NEON Engine (the framework of all their current/upcoming games). DiRT looks and plays better on the PS3 than it does on the Xbox 360. And if you don't believe me, read this...

    Beats the shit out of anything you own. Looks like its far from shit too.

    Shut your #$%#ing mouth you dont know shit.
     
  11. Funny. There are more good rated games on PS3 then Wii... Even though Wii has twice the games out. Go give your buddy a handjob. YOu're both dumb as #$%#.
     
  12. buy PS3 only, no need for the Xbox360, & forza2 is boring
     
  13. If you do get one out of the two, get the 360. More games.

    For the Xbox 360
    Forza 2, Blue Dragon, Eternal Sonata, and Mass Effect.

    For the PS3
    I personally think the retail version of MotorStorm is great, and Formula One Championship Edition has provided me with hours of entertainment (though as TDG pointed out, it's a mentally demanding game). Gran Turismo 5 Prologue is only two months away and Burnout Paradise should be a great game (it's multiplatform, but PS3 is the lead console).

    And most of the gaming journalists who've played Folklore have really enjoyed it...

    ...though White Knight Story will surely be the RPG to beat on PS3...

    Only buy F1 if you're into motorsport and yourself RACING. If you dont understand how to pass/when to pass, how to hold your line and modify your line to not wreck into other cars, and how to know when to let a car pass so you dont get #$%#ed up, you will fail hard. F1 is megga deep if you are into that though.
     
  16. Because they're not as good as Sony's SXRD line. Seriously, if you can find a KDS-50A2020 over there for a good price, get it. I'm hoping to buy one in October if everything goes to plan and Circuit City has another sale ($1399).
     
  17. 3LCD good enough for game and movie use only for the average person?

    are you serious?

    Mass Effect is a huge HUGE RPG coming out for the 360, and all those games you mentioned aren't coming out for at least a year or so, whereas you can go and pick up tons of solid 360 games by the end of this year.

    buying a ps3 within the next year would be a horrible error. Wait till the good games come out, the ps3 will be at least $100 cheaper by then, and you'll have more for it to do than sit there and fold proteins.
     
  19. i still can't really find any rationality for buying a ps3 right now.

    Wow! Why doesn't anyone do RPGs like that on PC. I'm steadily losing faith in Hellgate:London the more gameplay footage I see of it. <A BORDER="0" HREF="http://www.supercars.net/PitLane?displayFAQ=y"><IMG BORDER="0" SRC="pitlane/emoticons/sad.gif"></A>

    This is obviously pre-release footage, but they're going to have to work damned hard to develop a sense of atmosphere, and not just make the game difficult by throwing 25 enemies at you at the same time, then give you unlimited ammo to shoot them with (if you're a Cabalist).

    And if you're getting an HDTV, don't forget about the beauty of Blu-ray movies. Plus, all of these games:

    Resistance: Fall of Man
    - I'm sure you've either played or heard about this game by now. It was the PS3's big launch title and it really surprised a lot of people with its epic storyline and addicting fast-paced multiplayer action.
    http://www.gametrailers.com/player.php?id=18355&type=mov&pl=game

    MotorStorm
    - If you've ever played the demo for this game, please forget everything about that horrible experience. The final build was significantly better looking and far more entertaining.
    http://www.gametrailers.com/player.php?id=16064&type=mov&pl=game

    Uncharted: Drake's Fortune
    - This will probably be one of the best adventure games ever made, and I'm particularly excited because everything you see in this trailer is 100% game assets (it doesn't have a single CGI video) and it also doesn't have any loading screens in spite of being over 15 hours long.
    http://www.gametrailers.com/player.php?id=19735&type=mov&pl=game

    Infamous
    - We don't really know very much about this game, and sadly, the graphics don't look that great because Sucker Punch isn't very far into development. But this could have some real promise if the special powers are cool enough.
    http://www.gametrailers.com/player/22572.html?type=mov

    Heavenly Sword
    - People have been jokingly calling this game 'Goddess of War' but I think it'll be quite different, especially because it's being made by a bunch of well-known people in the movie industry and they want it to have a very cinematic feel. $5 if you can name the voice of King Bohan.
    http://www.gametrailers.com/player.php?id=19629&type=mov&pl=game

    Killzone 2
    - Nobody thought they could actually pull this off, but apparently they did.
    http://www.gametrailers.com/player/21504.html?type=mov

    Warhawk
    - I was a beta tester for this game and I can't adequately express how awesome it is. People might think that nothing can touch Halo 3 for sheer multiplayer goodness, but I think that's because they haven't played this game yet.
    http://www.gametrailers.com/player.php?id=18216&type=mov&pl=game

    LittleBigPlanet
    - I truly think this will be one of the most significant games of this entire generation of consoles. The idea of user-generated gaming hasn't been properly addressed until now, but this is set to change all of that.
    http://www.gametrailers.com/player.php?id=17723&type=mov&pl=game

    Haze
    - This game is being developed by the same team who made GoldenEye on the Nintendo 64, so with 4-player co-op play for both offline and online, expect this game to be fantastic. Plus, its social commentary on war sounds interesting.
    http://www.gametrailers.com/player.php?id=20523&type=mov&pl=game

    Gran Turismo 5 (Prologue)
    - Ignore the stupid anti-GT fanboys out there--GT5 will be out in about 12 months.
    http://www.gametrailers.com/player/22571.html?type=mov

    Unreal Tournament 3
    - This is a multiplatform game, but the cool thing about the PS3 version is that you can transfer over any of the level/weapon/vehicle/character mods from the PC version. So you can create your own assets or download them from other people, then just load them onto a USB thumb drive, plug in your keyboard/mouse, and play away.
    http://www.gametrailers.com/player/21491.html?type=mov

    echochrome
    - If M.C. Escher had been a crackhead, this is the game he probably would have made. And it apparently has a built-in level editor so you can create your own levels and then send them to friends via the Playstation Network.
    http://www.gametrailers.com/player/21880.html?type=mov

    Ratchet & Clank: Tools of Destruction
    - People have been foolishly tagging this as a kid's game but that's just rubbish. I've played all four of the previous R&C games and they're absolutely amazing. This one is sure to be just as good and it's clearly far better looking (though you'll have to forgive the quality of this video because it was made by filming a projector screen).
    http://www.gametrailers.com/player.php?id=19624&type=mov&pl=game

    Metal Gear Solid 4
    - I don't think I need to say anything about this game.
    http://www.gametrailers.com/player/21612.html?type=mov

    Home
    - And this is what's going to bring all of these games together. Some people are fairly skeptical about Home, but I think it's going to be a great experience. And Sony recently added a web-based interface (that's a lot like a MySpace/YouTube hybrid) as well as cell phone access so you communicate with friends online via your mobile.

  22. #$%# the 360. #$%# the ps3. that shit aint worth it.
     
  23. As in "It will destroy my life" not worth it, or as in "The money you pay isn't equal to the entertainment you get" worth it?
     
  24. 988! 988! You are crazy sir!
     
  25. Just buy a steering wheel and GTR2, no need for consoles
