haha, the 360 will be compatible with PSP...i guess just for the media but still funny <chocorun
Khse - June 9, 2005 01:27 PM (GMT)
Why would Sony allow that?
Infectious_Twilight - June 9, 2005 02:13 PM (GMT)
Xbox 360 just like the Xbox is a PC in a smaller box with much less modification available. The USB ports are the only reason it's compatible.
And MS just showed that to be pissy.
Khse - June 11, 2005 01:24 AM (GMT)
lol. yeah your right. Sony should do something back to Microsoft. Like when they showed the same game Microsoft was with better gfx! ^_^
Infectious_Twilight - June 11, 2005 02:35 PM (GMT)
I died and I laughed my head off when they did that! I was so happy that Sony was hitting back, but in a more subtle way.
MS on the other hand is nailing on everyone these days. Like I've said somewhere around here, J Allard irritates me.
Right now Bach says the PS2 is done and through with. I'm sorry but uh, would that be because they are about to surpass the xbox with the developers technology?
The new splinter cell coming out, from what I read in OPM from march, said the new game will look just as good as the PC and Xbox versions. Ha! Take that MS.
Khse - June 11, 2005 11:44 PM (GMT)
Also I read a quote calling the 360 "X-Box 1.5" lol. If they put more memory and such into the X-box it could pull off what the 360's games are doing.
Nitro Bahamut - June 12, 2005 12:37 AM (GMT)
lol, and ive seen ingame footage of the acclaimed "GTA killer" cant remember teh name exactly, but you play a black guy etc and your a gangster! teh gfx are not that much better than xbox! teh only games im impressed with, are ofcourse the new project gotham, or whatever racing game that is, and the new halo thats bound to be released soon
i really dont keep up with teh 360 now, since e3 anyway! its all teh rev and ps3 for me!
lol, did anyone see the ps3 tech demo with all tehm rubber ducks falling into the bath tub? lol, thats stupid, but graphically very impressive!
and yeah, usb's are universal so even if sony did have a go back (which they did, but used there brains) they have no rights over it! who invented teh usb anyway? chances are...microsoft!
amd another thing that really made me laugh during teh 360 press conference, was when they announced backwards compatibility! lol, and teh audience road in joy because of it, well that was said years ago for the ps2, so why be so impressed by that? and with teh 360 verging pc status, its all becoming obvious teh future of what microsoft have in consoles
tehy said ages ago, that the 360 (at teh time "next") will be there last console! well, i agree, it will eb however this console will imo be upgraded liek a pc, so in 10 years time i imagine they will just have more powerfull ugprades or versions of teh 360!
im just scared that teh 360 will attract new fans just because its teh "new" and better console at xmas! sony rely on FF12 and KH2, whilst ninty have...Zelda! i feel for ninty as zelda will help, but not as much as ff12 and kh2 for ps2! i just hope the sales of kh2 and ff12 are not too dwarfed by teh 360, as the day its released, will damage both the rev and ps3 greatly each day! any delays, will be crutial, more so for nint than sony, as we all kow teh ps3's launch day will be like a nuclear bomb exploding! i feel it will make history!
Infectious_Twilight - June 12, 2005 04:18 PM (GMT)
I'm not too impressing with project gotham. It looks like GT4 just a bit prettier. That's it. Raving games don't prove anything for a system. Cars are easier to render than characters I believe. Though I'm unsure of that statement.
Khse - June 12, 2005 11:34 PM (GMT)
I don't know. Maybe KH2 and FF12 together will make more money than LOZ but I think it will sell more on release than KH2. Me being a KH fan you should know that is my honest opinion. MY best friend lost a friend because he was a Microsoft fan. lol
Infectious_Twilight - June 12, 2005 11:54 PM (GMT)
Depending on how long it is until square releases 12, it may sell quite well. I know I'm getting it first day along with KH2 so. LoZ I'll probably get day one as well =)
But your friend lost a friend cause they were an ms fan? Interesting. Like I've said I like some of the games on my xbox, but the console is truly irrelovant to me. Where as when I had a ps2, I was pleased with the console and games.
But generally, I just want games that rock. Period. Personally, I've seen to many console wars, they are pointless. It all falls down to your personal preference and in that lies your own opinions as well. Arguing which system is best is also pointless IMO, cause we as the consumers don't know until after the consoles are released.
I look forward to see what everyone does this generation. But in truth, Sony's still got my money launch day. Ms, probably a year or so down the pipeline and Nintendo's going to have to fight to get my money this time around. I like some of the games I have for my GC (the rest are my wife's) the controllers ok, and I do admit to liking the fact the system takes very little space. But, atleast the GC looks like a little planning went into it. The REV, =P~~~~~ doesn't....but, that's just my opinion.
To me, another Zelda won't make me want to buy a Rev, nor another mario. Nintendo needs innovation. And IMO, a bunch of new staff!
Nitro Bahamut - June 13, 2005 08:03 PM (GMT)
well, thats what ive said before! ninty cant fall back and live off LOZ, mario etc! there only blockbusters (still, even LOZ plaes compared to other games) are...Ninty games! ninty games however great, are not enough! teh rev, needs more innovation absoloutly, i personally like teh sleek look to teh rev! the 360 looks to plastic and almost cheap, the ps3...well need i say anything apart from "WOW" its going to rock, it will look great, sound (hopefully) great and of course play great!
when i first got my very first console (atari) i never thought wed get to the gfx ingame we have now! i remember playing games like png and forgger! lol, then i got a...commodore i think it was called! i swappd that for a master system, then got a nes, loved it so got a snes, and then mega drive lol, then we witnessed the birth of teh most dreadfull console every...the...Panasonic (lol, i forgot the name! lol, it played games liek movies, but very cheap and bad)! the best time for me in teh gaming industry, was the psx and saturn/n64 days! i remember playing mario 64 and literally staying up 24/7! we need teh next gens to make us all feel like that again! im at an age were i love to see new updates in gfx, but id now much rather feel the same feelings i had playing mario 64 and being overwhelmed by its uniqye style, and truely new sense of gameplay! i dotn think we will ever see them days again, as we have crossed into 3d now, and i cant see any "near" changes! ahh, dont forget the old snes! i loved that too, i was playing seiken Densehtsu just earyler today! to refresh my mind so i can cover it in depth at my site
Infectious_Twilight - June 13, 2005 09:01 PM (GMT)
Right now the console wars are being determined by the mere fact that Microsoft is pulling Live, customization (whoopie *coughs* Sarcasm) of faceplates and such. Basically, things that have been done in the PC area for awhile now. And the thing thats really killing me, are all the xbox fans calling it new, and innovative. Sorry, come again?
I can change the interface of my PC with a few downloads and edits here and there. I can alter the case by: buying a new case or spray painting the one I've got now.
The USB connectivitiy isn't new either. PS2's got two of the ports on the front of the console! Eyetoys been a huge success on the PS2, so, let's copy it and call it new again. *laughs* Sorry that one kills me.
Game download (demos) BIG DEAL....
Custom Soundtracks: Kinda cool
Internal HDD: Cool no need to buy memory cards (Yes Sony, pay attention here!)
It's like recently ATI and APPLE came out nailing on Sony's Cell processor (Apple) and NVidia's RSX Graphics processor.
Apple just signed a deal with Intel to provide processors - Nailed in the fact that yeah, bag your competitors. Sorry point = NULL apple
ATI. Yes, we know, you're just so godly. Please. Have you touched, examined, or hmm, tested RSX personally yet? No? WTH? Oh point = NULL again eh?
Of course, on the bagging end, Sony is not blameless. Ken Kutaragi called the Xbox 360 the Xbox 1.5 *coughs*. Kinda harsh eh?
Of course, there is one other thing I forget to mention in this. Some Xbox'ers out there are so hyped about....
The 360 BUTTON
The thing that rotates I think on the console (power button.)
I'm sorry, I'm getting irritated yet again about all of this. It's nothing new, console gaming is only new when it comes to games (half the time). So beyond that. Go enjoy your current gen consoles. You've for 6 months and more to wait for the nect generation consoles to appear. Enjoy the games...
Nitro Bahamut - June 13, 2005 09:10 PM (GMT)
yes, that was harsh from sony, but to be honest sony are in a very good position to critisze them! microsoft have come i the console scene as if they will dominate it! how very foolish, they think there money will buy them the success, well sony may not be as rich as microsfot but they sure as hell no how to prudce consoles!
i like that button, and it lights up on the console all cool! lol
well, im moving this to teh proper forum now guys!
oh, and ive decided i will get a 360 this year!
Khse - June 15, 2005 04:58 PM (GMT)
Why did you decide too? What is attracting about it?
Infectious_Twilight - June 15, 2005 05:12 PM (GMT)
Most likely to keep up with his gaming site.
*shrugs*I'm waiting for the Xbox thing.And as for PS3, dunno if I'll buy first wave. They tend to break faster.
Let's just say, I hope sony fixes their past errors. Systems breaking launch day a year and a half from now (Since it's already been announced!) shouldn't happen. (Meaning, cause I confused myself on that one. When it launches in a year/year and a half, the first wave shouldn't have the same problems that the past two consoles have)
Nitro Bahamut - June 15, 2005 08:56 PM (GMT)
well, i was just watching some footage of e3, and saw your gaming clips from it, i loved a few of teh FPS games on show, and ive always had respect for microsoft in the FPS filed of games, sony have never really met any of my standards i fps, so i always go for microsoft! however, with this said, i hope sony can deleiver some better fps's!
also, its very sad but i love how when your online with the 360, your control pad will light up on a button in teh middle when your being invited to a game! thats kinda cool, and also i think itd be nice to won both 360 and ps3 so i can hook them up on different tvs and compare! im very sad but i do that with games nowadays! lol, hence the reason why imo the gamecube is better in many ways than a ps2!
Khse - June 16, 2005 11:00 PM (GMT)
I'm surprised to hear you say that. If they had more mature titles Gamecube would beat out Microsoft and gain more respect.
Nitro Bahamut - June 17, 2005 12:41 AM (GMT)
surpised at what? that im geting one or that i feel the GC was in many ways graphicaly superior to the PS2? (only in some ways, textures and mapping the ps2 is fa better aswell as fmvs etc)
Infectious_Twilight - June 17, 2005 12:26 PM (GMT)
The Ps2 actually got the shorthand of the texturing memory hand. That's why the guy who created RE4 doesn't want to port it over to the PS2. It will look like crap compared to the GC's version. But, then again, that may not be so true. Since developers are now learning how to send the geographical textures through the main textures pipeline or something around those lines. Ps2 games are catching up because developers are devoting more time to them now. And actually taking the time to find out what the true abilities of the Ps2 are.
Khse - June 17, 2005 06:54 PM (GMT)
Have you seen videos of RE4 for the PS2? they look exactly like the GCN one! It looks amazing. Capcom is a traitor though. They were giving Nintendo all of these exclusives( like RE4/Killer 7 ) and then they backstab them and go over to Sony.
Nitro Bahamut - June 17, 2005 09:22 PM (GMT)
come on guys! thats no relevance to Xbox 360, start a new topic for the debate over the GC PS2 resi 4!
Khse - June 24, 2005 04:02 AM (GMT)
Okay sorry. In the new GI Sony says that they have great FPS games! lol
Infectious_Twilight - June 24, 2005 04:28 PM (GMT)
As far as money goes though, Capcom made a good move. And since obviously the Ps2 isn't so PoS as everyone thought (*laughs* I'm actually laughing about this factor. It amuses me. Yet again Sony was under estimated)
I'm going to say something, just cause it hit me last night. I was looking at the newest GI and I'm looking at a screen from Killzone 3, and FF7's tech demo. It is completely possible for Killzone to look like that! And I'm just saying this cause so many xbox'ers have been saying that it's not possible =)
I look forward to seeing if Lionhead releases BC for the xbox 360. I am hoping cause I wanted that game so bad on the xbox. Your a caveman, also responsible for a whole tribe, and you are in a world of dinosaurs and such. You must learn to survive, hunt and other things to get through this world. I loved the idea.
Khse - June 25, 2005 07:12 PM (GMT)
I know this is off-topic again sorry. But I'm interested in a PC game called Spore. Where you are a single celled object that evolves into a multi cell object. You eventually get to a human then to aliens and more intelligent beings!
Infectious_Twilight - June 25, 2005 08:40 PM (GMT)
Khse - June 25, 2005 10:31 PM (GMT)
I can't really think of anything about the 360 worth talking about. Anybody have something to say? lol
Nitro Bahamut - June 27, 2005 07:09 PM (GMT)
well, not really, little can be untill more is relased! im sure there is, but im making the most of having enough comp speed to post! lol
Khse - June 27, 2005 08:27 PM (GMT)
lol. Hmm........... I guess I'm going to have to spam now. j/k ha ha
Xiantaru - June 30, 2005 08:27 PM (GMT)
I'm getting an Xbox 360 DUH halo3 of course im getting it i got 500$ pocket cash! (Birthday)
Infectious_Twilight - June 30, 2005 08:38 PM (GMT)
I wouldn't count on halo 3 coming out for atleast a year yet.
Oh yeah, got some new news, forget where I got from though =P
Apparently, when Sony launches their console (PS3) there's a very big chance microsoft might lower the price of their console to combat this.
Now my thoughts on this is, well, halo 3 won't be ready by then. If it is, I'll be amazed.
Xiantaru - June 30, 2005 08:40 PM (GMT)
Halo3 is coming out the same day PS3 come out they're competeing! I know this for a fact
Infectious_Twilight - June 30, 2005 08:44 PM (GMT)
It has yet to be comfirmed by the people who are actually making the game. Bill Gates most likely said that to "scare" Sony. All we know is that Halo 3 is coming out on the Xbox 360, and that Bill Gates would like it out on the system when the PS3 launches.
Khse - July 1, 2005 01:36 AM (GMT)
Grrr....... I don't see what people see in Halo. And yes I've played it. It is just a bland FPS. But I don't want to argue either.
Xiantaru - July 1, 2005 03:02 AM (GMT)
Its just a good game i beat 1 and 2 both in 1 day :D
Khse - July 1, 2005 04:47 AM (GMT)
You are an experienced gamer. Congrats. But let's please get back on topic.
Infectious_Twilight - July 1, 2005 02:45 PM (GMT)
Doesn't take much experience to beat halo. Or any fps for that matter, understanding the story however, is another matter. Granted, I was disappointed with both games, though 2 more than 1.
Xiantaru - July 1, 2005 02:51 PM (GMT)
hm anyways so do you have any pics of Xbox360?
Xiantaru - July 1, 2005 02:51 PM (GMT)
EDIT: Sorr how do you get rid of posts? I click delete it just brings me to edit post....
Nitro Bahamut - July 1, 2005 08:44 PM (GMT)
lol, halo is beatable in under a day! infact you cn do 1 and 2 in a day! lol, well if you decide to stay in all day you can!
yes, i have some 360 pics, would you liek some?
