Default Re: Funny how the 360 is the more expensive next gen console

Lines are being blurred now b/c there's no clear victor in sales so its still worth every Dev's while to spend the extra money to make cross-platform games. There will come a point in PS3 sales when the extra cost of cross-platform development will no longer be financially justified and Dev's will go back to programming for one platform or the other, making ports afterward if the game is a smashing success. However we're getting off topic again, I think there will be a significant amount of AAA PS3 exclusives (I really don't see MGS going to the dark side ), you think the current cross-platform trend will continue- time will tell, debating it now is pretty futile.

In the mean time anyone have any comments on the piece for piece price breakdown I posted on page 7?

Yes Component has its advantages over HDMI but there are only a handful of HDTVs that accept analog 1080p which is exactly why MS is producing the Elite.

Considering that almost everything having to do with that topic is purely conjectural, it's actually impossible to debate it...but I do disagree with your point of view. You're right though, time will tell.

There has been a lot of talk going around about MGS4 (as well as other franchise titles) losing its exclusivity and several comments by Sony reps have neither confirmed nor denied this. I'm not trying to rumor-monger but it's worth mentioning.

To be honest I've always thought of those sorts of comparisons as vastly flawed due to arguable comparisons of one particular part to another as well as a lack of acknowledgment of the value of being able to "opt out" of certain parts. For instance, I have no desire to buy any other addons to my X-Box 360 as I see no value in them, so for me, a PS3 is much more expensive.

This thread delivers so much it makes my head explode!

Think Dr. Nicorulez would have anything for that condition?

Maybe you guys would want to chime in then.

BTW, Zelda you are truly the most idiotic and stupid person on this thread. Six hundred bucks would be a months salary; that would cost you the ability to play Mario Cart. EA's outgoing CEO stated clearly he expected Sony to win but lose marketshare. Forbes has stated that Sony will likely win, but that MS is making up much ground. Show me a link to a viable financial based website and show me differently. PS...xbox.com does not count.
Those comments made by EA's CEO and Forbes were made before the Wii and PS3 even launched. Now that they have some actual numbers, they are changing their tune. Right now, the PS3 is losing. Badly. It really isn't even close. In the future maybe they'll make up ground, but I doubt they'll dig themselves out of the hole they've dug.

here is a link if you want links, but I don't think ANYONE is arguing that Sony is going to come in first looking at their current performance
http://www.fiercegamebiz.com/story/a...war/2007-01-30

Don't get me wrong, the PS3 will have some great AAA games, no doubt, and maybe then I might buy one, but right now? It's really pathetic.

And heh, maybe $600 is a months salary for you, but it certainly isn't for me. I'd buy the Wii for $600 (even though that would be a rip off price) just because I want to play Zelda.

He probably works as a secretary in a dentist's office and thinks that means he's a doctor.

Zelda, you will never own a Sony console. I might have a heart attack the day you do buy one though.

If they come out with GoW3 and it's exclusive to the PS3, and provided Final Fantasy XIII is good, and also I'd like to see a sequel to Shadow of the Colossus... I will buy a PS3.

Exactly. And that's what I keep trying to say.

Plus, you can never compare them because HD DVD is so far above and beyond BD that it's impossible to have "equally equiped" machines.

Nintendo's first party lineup hasn't even begun to drop, and when it does... it will be like a ton of bricks.

Paper Mario
New Zelda Wii
Project HAMMER
Pokemon
Fire Emblem
Batillion Wars
New Kirby Wii
Castlevania Wii
Starfox Wii
Mario Kart Wii
etc etc etc

and that's just the first party lineup
they also got some great third party exclusives lined up one of which is rumored to be the NiGHTS sequel
