Its always funny to me that both of those characters can do and say as they wish and never suffer any repercussions from it while I on the other hand have to constantly walk around on eggshells and watch my every word.

The only thing I do not like or agree with about nvnews.net is how biased it is towards certain members. Everyone is a member and everyone should get equal punishment and treatment, not just a select few.

Rules are rules and they should apply to everyone.
MikeC has banned me before.

Default Re: I Plan on purchasing a PS3

so anyways...

basically I am looking forward to Haze, MGS4, God of War 3, SOCOM 4, L.A Noire for the PS3...

one thing I like about it as well is being able to upgrade the hard drive.. I don't really care much about backwards compatibility. If I want to play an old game I can use an emulator.

For what you get it is still a pretty good deal. I don't know anything about HD movie playback and all that so to me everything looks good

You wouldn't go to a party with complete strangers and start talking **** and expect them to all play nice with you like they were old friends, so you can't expect the same here either.

Makes sense and you were nice about it, a few here could take some lessons from you.

No offence taken..we are all entitled to our opinions. The bit at the end of my post was certainly fortune telling...i have no way of knowing if this will indeed happen...just a strong hunch built on 28 years of gaming experience.

I have walked this path before...c64 versus spectrum/atari 2600 versus Intellivision/Amiga versus Atari ST/Max versus PC etc etc ad nauseum.

The main thrust of my post however was simply to say if you are already an avid PC gamer with a decent rig...and you want to maximize your gaming..why would you get an Xbox 360? To me it would make more sense to get a console that will give you access to exclusives that will never see the light of day on a PC (Final Fantasy XIII etc).

I wouldn't play Oblivion on either an Xbox or a PS3...I play it on my PC with rebalance mods/graphical mods and added quest mods. When I play Graw2 I play it on my PC same with Bioshock etc etc.

That was all

Herein is the reason why the X360 is such in the lead. Not everyone has a decent rig that can play Oblivion better than the 360. When I first got the 360, I had a P4 3.0 GHz and a 6800 Ultra with 1 GB of RAM. The 360 blew it out of the water.

The 360 can be looked as a poor man's alternative to PC Gaming. And I think it is one of the reason for its success.

when Oblivion first came out I played it on a Dell XPS with an intel graphics accelerator()... I had to use a wrapper to emulate the shaders so that it would run

What, what? No DMC4, Killzone 2, LBP, GT5, Soul Calibur 4......Resistance 2!?

EDIT: One more game I want to see more of is that new Sucker Punch IP, Infamous.

Agreed, However I think you will agree that the PC expense phenomenom relative to new consoles is generally just the first year...a card that can play Oblivion with full settings is at the $100 mark now.

Come the 2nd half of a console's life this same argument is usually moot.

I've never played Devil May Cry

I may go out and rent 3 or 2 and see if I like it. I've never played Resistance or Killzone either.. GT 5 looks very nice as well but I don't have a wheel right now.

I am pretty excited about Tekken 6... hopefully Street Fighter 4 is on PS3 as well
