Goldeneye will be brilliant, but the thing is, Nintendo will always be superior to Sony in every way.

The Gamecube is the thinking mans console... anyone with a bit of sense can see it beats the PS2 in every way.

The X-Box is for PC users who are afraid of the console world.

The PS2 is like EA Games, it's popular, but we don't know why. They make their money on brand names, not quality. It's the console for chavs, townies, neds, etc etc etc. Admittedly there are some good games but there are plenty of fine replacements. God how I hate the PS2.

Sony's ridiculous attempt looks like a glases case and no-one has ever managed to match nintendo for success when it comes to handheld consoles. All of sonys efforts flopped, The N-Gage was a failure, and Sony's latest effort and the billgatesbox's litle cousin will all fall before the might of nintendo.

Goldeneye, Perfect Dark, Zelda, Kirby, Mario, Mario Kart, Rogue Squadron 2 and 3,... and that's just to name a few. No-one can match Nintendo in quality. To recap, EA Games and the PS2 make money on brand names and games that used to be good but are rereleased time and time again with nothing changed, making money on the name of the game. (EA did this with Generals and they continue to do it every year with the FIFA games.)

Yar boo sucks to Sony. Long live Nintendo.

I very much doubt there will be a Perfect dark 2, Nintendo own the rights to every thing in PD1 after all, just like EA can't use any thing from Goldeneye for Goldeneye 2...

Yeah, Rare = sellouts. :x

Kal, you hit the nail right on the head. The PS2 has a few good games like Red Faction 2, Final Fantasy X, Ratchet and Clank, among a few. I have a PS2, Xbox and GameCube. I have them for the same reason: games. Each has their own set of quality titles and none is better than the other. It's merely a judgment call on the part of the player.

I. myself, am a Nintendo man. Been one since the original NES and still, to this day, have a working NES, Super NES, Gameboy and Nintendo 64. I still play all of them.

In other words, the DS will own your bitch asses. But rest assured I will get an XBox2 and PS3. :p

Dues Ex on XB owns the FPS world. The pinnacle of realism.

Corrupt program now requires constant reboots and does not function at all in majority of instances. Designed with a web browser component to replace AOL, it has exceeded our expectations by being more crashy and unreliable and with worse tech support. We didn't think it was physically possible! A general product recall is advised; when it does function it seems to require background processes Girl 0.1Beta to stave off further crashes. Will someone PLEASE remove that code, and insert Backbone 1.9 in its place? That's assuming we even bother to continue this prog.

Who cares about realism. I'd rather play Medal of Honour than do the thing for real. I'm sure half of the games titles would be nowhere near as successful if they had the realism you are on about (1 shot kills etc.) What is realism? The physics and AI of Far Cry and Half-Life? Or bullets doing 100 damage instead of 10?

I reguarly play on XBox's and PS2's round other peoples houses but I prefer the Gamecube, it's infinitely better. The ratio of titles on gamecube that are good > bad is far better than on the PS2.

PS2 doesn't compare. I mean, ask anyone what's the best football game, they'll probably say FIFA 2004. But ask anyone with an ounce of sense and they'll tell you its ISS or PES.

I didn't mind the cel shading. It fit the game quite well. At least, I thought it did.

I'd prefer games not to be cel shaded, but I don't find anything wrong with ones that are.
XIII was cel shaded because it was based on a comic book if i'm not mistaken.

Yer XIII is based on a comic book & besides from looking a bit wired at times the cell shading quite fits it

I feel just like Daz on this mater, cell shading is ok but I prefer proper GFX

I dunno. Cell shading is cool, it looked great in Wind Waker, but doing it again is rather lame...

Cel shading is good if used correctly and not like a gimmick. XIII and Wind Waker achieved this. One of the first games to do it was Cel Damage which wasn't very good. But i'd rather have the good 3d stuff. Also, Nintendo tantalised us with those shots of Ganondorf and Link in a swordfight and then used cel-shaded graphics. The taste of betrayal is still sour in our mouths. 3D Zelda is what we wanted all along.

Maybe WW was made just to make us want to buy this 3d zelda even more?
