All these editorials are idiotic, they said the Wii sold more then the PS3.

Well duh the Wii had more of them being in stock.

Both sold out 100%.

Thing is this all doesn't matter until all systems are out in quantities.

Resistance is great as a launch title dont get me wrong, but it's far from what I expect the 2nd gen titles like gears of war will turn out to be. Till then, I got a few PS3 launch titles I still want to play and a **** load of PS2 games I havent even touched yet. And yes, even some 360 games I want to play. Just as I had DC games to tide me over the PS2 launch. You gotta remember that GTA and Guitar Hero, amoung others... did not come out day one for the system.

Well I loved my DC too... but again not the DC itself, just the games I played on it. Shenmue, Soul Caliber, Crazy Taxi... that's all I remember about the DC. I still want a PS2 to play Guitar Hero, if they haven't announced it for 360, I would have bought one just for Guitar Hero. Which is I guess where I was aiming with the original statement about PS2s bad review in Time. If they reviewed it before.... GTAIII I guess, it wasn't like a must have console back then.

Exactly. Hardware and Features wise, DC wasnt all that impressive, it was noisy as well. But I loved it for the games I could play on it. and IMO that made it a great console to me. Same thing applies here. I'm not as bad as you think I may be just because I like the PS2/PS3.

BTW Guitar Hero II is coming out in early 07 for 360 IIRC.

yeah, spring is what the red octane guy told me when I saw them at a game convention here in NYC. Heh, and unlike Zelda_fan, I'm not anti-Sony. I feel the Playstation is for a different audience completely. Games like Rainbow 6, GRAW, Gears, and most other shooters is what I mostly play, and for those games its better to have a 360.... which is why I bought one, since PC shooters are lacking these days. Playstation has totally different games; for example, Viva Pinata, which is a really good game, was a total bust on the 360. It only sold 35k in November... simply because the 360 crowd isn't into those games....

The PS2 itself sucked real bad. The only thing that sold the PS2 for me was the GTA series period. Man I loved Vice City.

Seems like we can agree on something then.

The reason we dogpile on Sony is because they talked such a big game. I mean seriously, you never had the friend when you were a kid who thought they were hot ****, talked and talked and talked about how awesome they were, but then when it came down to it, they were useless? They'd talk about how great they were at sports, then they'd get tired and quit after 5 minutes. Or they'd talk about how great they were at games, then quit in frustration after a few minutes of button mashing. Or maybe they'd brag about how much they could drink, and then they'd pass out after only a few beers. And you bet your ass you gave them a heard time about being so full of ****.

Same thing with Sony. They talked a huge game. Enormous. True HD? The HD Era starts with us? Comparing the PS3 to a super computer? Come on now.
