If you believe that, you're most horribly misinformed. Launch titles include Call of Duty 3, Splinter Cell: Double Agent, Far Cry Vengeance, GT Pro Series amongst a slew of later coming RPGs, shooters, racers and platformers.

Hardly arcade style games at all.

Besides, arcade style games have included some of the best and most memorable games ever made. Who are you to argue with games like Point Blank?

The games might be great. The console - not necesarilly.

(2) Evolution can't be true, since I lack the mental capacity to understand it; moreover, to accept its truth would cause me to be uncomfortable.
(3) Therefore, God exists.

For that money you could buy a Wii AND a 360.. if I had it, that would be my choice above PS3 anyday


Too bad both choices suck. Sure get a wii, youll just be playing the same mario and zelda games you played on the nes. And get a 360, who needs a huge game library when you have halo 3 and gears of war. watch, in 3 years 360 will be abandoned like xbox for microsofts next machine.

Did you know a US FFXII can't be played easily on a European PS2? My dad was in the US and saw it in a shop, we wouldn't be able to play it here because a European PS2 cannot read it. Otherwise I and my little brother would've asked him to buy it.

Actually it makes a lot of sense. The "wiimote" is the thing I'm hinting at.

That's a wonderfully ironic statement, seeing as the Ps3 is the worst offender when it comes to YASS (Yet-Another-Sequel-Syndrome).

Stick it to the Nazis again in what will be the 13th title in the Medal of Honour series, hit the streets with a blaze of speed again in the 16th Ridge Racer, submit yourself to yet another dose of horror with the impending 13th Resident Evil.

Hijack your way across middle America in the 10th Grand Theft Auto title again. Failing that, you could always get the 5th Driver game!

What's that I hear? Colin McRae 7, Tekken 6, Gran Turismo back in a 6th and 7th rendition, Socom 4, Metal Gear Solid 4. Warhawk, just like you could play on the Ps1, but with worse motion sensitive contoller support! I'm sure I can't neglect the 10th Need for Speed either, a 17th Tom Clancy game in the form of the 6th Rainbow Six, or the 11th Tony Hawk's title.

Alone in the Dark 5
Armoured Core 4
Burnout 5
Devil May Cry 4
Phantom Saga 5
Generation of Chaos 6
Virtua Fighter 5
Soul Caliber 4
Battlefield: Bad Company, and a surprise un-named Battlefield game.
Another Mortal Kombat
Another Wipeout

Any my favourite series of announced games, all to hit the Ps3 - NBA '07, NBA 2k7, NBA Live '07, NBA Street '07 and NBA '08.


:p

Yep, definitely not playing the same old games as we've seen before on the almighty Playstation 3, with an extensive game catalogue like that one, and a wonderful slew of great looking, original and exclusive intellectual properties.


:cool:

I'm not exactly a fan of any of the three consoles, but to say that you're playing the same old games on the Wii is a blatant fallacy, and while some old favourites are coming back, and classic 3rd/4th/5th generation console titles will be available to download using the online service, there are far more interesting new properties being developed on the Wii.

The 360 is unlikely to be replaced by a new console anytime before you hear from any rival console in the successive generation either. The original Xbox was a very late entry into the last generation, marketed through hardware superiority, whereas the marketing strategy behind the 360 required it to be available far in advance of rivals to establish a solid base.

I'm done.

Not onyl does the Wii have a lot of fresh meat (another thing - the games you'll find on the wii, even if they are sequels, are like nothing you'll find on other consoles), but the controller revolutionises the way we play old games too.

Every game will get a massive breath of life.

I'm gonna say it now, if you're strapped for cash, and you'd like to be able to surf Revora without a high-powered PC, then go pick up a Wii. You can surf the net on it with *gasp* Opera, and then go chill with your friends whilst playing SSBb, without paying extra fees*. However, I feel that if you have the money to scrape out for it, the Xbox 360 is a very good console, that has gone with the tried-and-true method that you don't need any gimmicks for gaming, just the games themselves. Well, that and talking to your friends playing the same games, helping each other out, and even sometimes playing together while in either the same living room, or countries away. However, PS3 is trying to go with the overpowered behemoth method, and copy the gimmicks that someone else is trying to use for this generation. So, for me, Wii60 > PS3. :thumbsupsmiley:
*note: You have to buy Opera in the Wii's version of Microsoft Marketplace.

OLD SIG
When history witnesses a great change Razgriz reveals itself,
first as a dark demon. As a demon it uses it power to rain death upon the land,
and then it dies. However after a period of slumber Razgriz returns
As the demon sleeps, man turns on man.
Its own blood, and madness soon cover the earth.
From the depths of despair awaken the Razgriz.
Its raven wings ablaze in majestic light.
Amidst the eternal waves of time
From a ripple of change shall the storm rise
Out of the abyss peer the eyes of a demon
Behold the Razgriz, its wings of black sheath
The demon soars through the dark skies
Fear and Death trail its shadow beneath
Until Men united wield a hallowed sabre
In Final Reckoning, the beast is slain.
Razgriz intrerpretation

I cannot imagine myself playing a game on touchscreen


Why don't you go try a DS with games like Kirby: Magic Paintbrush - it'll show you how good alternative control methods can be and that they can create excellent games unmatched anywhere else.
