Reviewers? LOL. Claiming opinion defeats purpose.

I just realized AC4 is multiplatform, along with VF5.

Heavenly Sword has been well received. Not sure where you come off saying it hasn't. Same with Resistance.

I will be buying the 40GB version if it has full WiFi functionality, i'm not bothered about BC whatsoever. I have no desire to play any older PS2 games.

But then Heavenly Sword is the only exclusive that looks anygood so far, and even that is short.

I'll wait until mid next year when buying a PS3 might be worth it.

The reason the 60GB version is selling so well is because they are giving away 2 first-party games (for example Resistance and Heavenly Sword) with it for free. So the console is only £50 ($100) more anyway and they are giving away about £80 of free software with it.

You doin't get anything extra with the 40GB version.

I'll give .5/10 for that one. Just not enough shill in it. You might want to talk to magus or zelda fan how to troll more effectively.

VF5 for the PS3 does not include online play, while it will for the 360.

Heavenly Sword was well received, however no one gave the impression that it was a "great" game, rather a "better than most".

Resistance was also well received, and continued to have good reactions for quite a while. I'd say by gauging reactions that Resistance would be rated higher than Heavenly Sword.

Even so, the PS3 catalog of games is still quite small with only a few really good games. Given the price for the unit, the fact that it has been out for over a year now and is running in third place (by a wide margin), and now is dropping backward compatiblity for the enormus catalog of ps2 games; the future looks questionable for the PS3.

However this is a pretty boring thread, the PS3 still is in a "wait and see" category.. it may do well, it may bomb, it may be middle of the line. No matter how the PS3 does, it isn't going to take first, and that has to be a huge hit to Sony loosing the 1st place position.

Now in other news, rumours are abound that the re-released 360 elite has been selling out in Japan, but no one knows why.

Bought one the other day, honestly after seeing and playing on the hardware i can understand the higher price, the build quality is vastly superior to the 360.

I'll see if i can get a wii sometime before christmas as well.
