Re: XBox 360 Vs Playstaion 3... And that thingy by Nintendo.

I only own a PSOne - which I got about 5 years ago for 80.
I have 4 games for it and haven't played any of them for about 4 years.
PSs, XBoxs and all the other consoles are only good for sports sims (driving, soccer etc). Everything else is better on the PC - mainly 'cos of the mouse-keyboard control system. Try playing an RTS on a console and it's horrendous.
Even FPS are a nightmare 'cos of the control system.

Elder Scrolls IV on the XBox will be sweet - but then it'll still look better on my PC.

Okay - so my PC cost me a mere 1k or so but games are far cheaper (Oblivion can be pre-ordered for 25 instead of 40 for the XBox360) and my PC can be upgraded gradually instead of forking out for a new console each time.

So for me - I'd choose the frozen salmon. It's cheaper and better for me.

Upgrading your computer would be more benificial though. It would benifit heaps of stuff, not just one.

this is also true.....but most people dont know how to use their computer properly. 98% of the idiots i talk to on a daily basis only use their computer for email, porn, and file sharing.

I have nothing against the console for the types of games I mentioned - the sports sims especially - or for multi-player games when you have friends around.

But I'm just not really into those.
I like the FPS and RTS genres - where a PC is the only choice.

eh, I can FPS on PC and Consol very well. so it really makes no difference to me. as for RTS, that should be PC only. to hell with sports and racing sims.

PC's are more for people with a bit more money than I. I have to use a console for most of my gaming anyway, cause i don't really have the funds to make my computer really awesome, or buy a newer one. Thats the good thing about a console. Upgrades are unnecessary.

Yes, upgrades are unnecesary. They just have a new $300 console comming out every year.

I think it's cheaper to upgrade you pc.

But maybe it's not, technology is just really expensive, man.

Really, I've just stayed away from video games altogether.

Re: XBox 360 Vs Playstaion 3... And that thingy by Nintendo.

The cost is ridiculous for consoles, sure, when they first are released. But look at PC technology. They come out with a new processor or pentium thing or new graphics cards or whatever, every few months. You can buy a brand new computer, and within a year its becoming old. It takes a few years for a new console to come out and replace the first. PS2 has been out for 5 or six years now. and theres still another year for the PS3. Xbox has been out for nearly as long. So has Gamecube. You get around 5 years from a console before they become outdated.
