Talking Half-Life 2: Orange...for 360, PS3!!!!

Sweet!!!

http://pc.ign.com/articles/755/755915p1.html

Most of us probably already knew this. But to me it is fetching sweet that for $59 you get an optimized (for next gen consoles according to Electronic Gaming Monthly) Half-Life 2 plus the following:
-Episode 1
-Episode 2
-Portal
-Team Fortress 2!

To me that is a freaking sweet deal. If they have optimized Half-Life 2 so the graphics look better than they did on the original Xbox this will rock even more!

Well the 360 already has me won over with their controller. I really hate the playstation controller and I always have, but that's just me. For a game like this though mouse and keyboard will still always be best IMO.

WhaaaT?

The ps2/3 is still better than 360. though the 360 is aeons ahead of xbox 1. original xbox's paddle is THE worst paddle of all time.

I personally thought the gamecubes paddle was the most comfy of the previous 3 systems.

but...

SNES paddle > all

Like I said my own opinion. I really do enjoy the gamecube controller though as well. But the Xbox 360 is by far the best my hands have ever held. I have always hated the PS controllers. They should make the darn buttons convex or concave or something instead of flat . Plus I hate where the analog sticks are located.

this thread has nothing to do about controller preference, if we want to bicker about the controllers, we should make our standard flame thread about it.

If you don't like the ps3 controller on the ps3 you can use the 360 controller http://www.engadget.com/2007/01/08/p...60-controller/
