and also kinect aka project Natal is going to be the s*%#. it's automatically going to be accesible from every 360 old and new. I think sony would come out with a whole new ps3 just to be able to use that technology whereas microsoft you don't even have to pay additional mony you just need to buy the camera then you dont need batterys or a controller that's insannne.
I'm a Sony man through and through. I've always had Sony consoles from the very beginning. I started off with a PS1, then got a PS2 Slim Line and I now have a 60GB PS3. The controllers always looked the best and compared to Microsoft and the Xbox, it always fit the hand better and was a lot simpler to use.
Of all time? Thats rough though for me Nintendo, the Nintendo and Even more memorable for me super nintendo will always fill me with nostalgic joy. But the industry is changing so fast and I don't like nintendo's new direction, hopefully they enter the HD world with a good console.
bigNATE : i see what you meen Nate, Nintendo is my fave out the lot, but the 360 isnt a terrible console the normal XBOX is but the XBOX 360 has the best online games ever. back on the subject i think sony is terrible the games are pants for example who would you vote for Little Big Planet or Gears Of War, Forza Motorsport vs Heavy Rain. most of my mates have a 360 and so do i and all my mates agree.
superscyth09 : Sorry to burst your bubble, but LittleBigPlanet and Heavy Rain all the way .
Sony and Nintendo are much better at making hardware and games than Microsoft. I mean seriously, their new 360? Hardly a reason to upgrade, unless you don't have an Elite yet.
well even tho i don't much care for the wii (not a ton of games i want for it) i think it has to be nintendo. I will give the wii one thing tho, while other console makers focused more and more on graphics, nintendo decided to give game play a new spin and make you feel more like you are the character rather than someone telling him what to do. But i think in spite of the the lack of games for the wii, overall i think that Nintendo is the best, i just can't wait to see what they have in store with the 3DS.
T Dogg957 : Just letting you know, you got to put more quality into it, just say why do like it, tell us some past experience with Nintendo games, or just even talk about the console. Then I think you will do fine.
I have to go with Nintendo on this for the pure fact that the have been around longer then all these systems and the whole time they been around they have set them self apart from all the other systems, kept it original, gave you that classic feel even if it is brand new, and still maintain in the gaming industry. Besides that, most of the games on Nintendo are good for all ages, kids to adult. The games like Super Mario Galaxy 2 and Legend Of Zelda are just great games. I used to look at Nintendo Power magazines at my friend's house, and they are cool. I got to say that Nintendo is just great. I have to say that the Super NES and the Wii are kind of my favorite consoles.
Then, Sony has to go 2nd. . I've always had Sony consoles from the very beginning. I started off with a PS1, then got a PS2 Slim Line and I now have a 180GB PS3. The PS3 is the bomb. Most of my friends have the PlayStation3, and we alyways go to online chat.
The best company I would say of all time is Nintendo. They have such original characters and games which makes it so much fun. They also generally focus more on gameplay than other competitors. They have also like you guys said stood the test of time and still to this day hold up with there awesome series like Zelda, Metroid, Mario etc. Also with this years E3 it looks like they will do even better. I personally think the 360 and Ps3 are both equally good but in the end I will always like Nintendo as I did grow up with it.
This is a very tough subject to argue about, or even discuss.
nintendo : Created around a dozen memorable characters that are now LEGENDS.
Came out with a console that gets people off their couch, completely.
Been in the game and alive for nearly 3 decades.
That's tough to argue with.
Sony: Has the greatest selling videogame console of all time (PS2). Which is still selling.
Some of the best graphics for all three of their consoles, at the time. PSX, PS2, PS3.
Free online play with a robust system included.
Even a tougher arguement.
Microsoft: Created one of the best selling games of the 2000's (Halo).
Created two consoles that could easily compete with Sony (Xbox, Xbox 360).
Made a robust online play for $50 a year and added more features than sony's PSN.
Twistedsnow9 : Oh! But what's this? You mean how Kinect goshdarn failed at E3? Microsoft hiring generic people to show off the amazing features like "listening to Justin Beiber" or "being your own remote control" when I can do all of that on my *gasp* controller. And being voice operated is probably the biggest dick move you could do with it, how'd you like if your roomate/brother/sister/neighbor just walked in and said "Xbox turn off" and it happened? Twisted, what games that Natal showed weren't on-rails? As in you, the character, being able to walk around instead just using your lightsaber to deflect bullets or just passing cars in the next Forza Motorsports as your main objective. And the new video chat I hear is going to rival chatroulette with even more dicks in it . And it just so happened to ripoff Eyetoy on some levels. So where's your logic now.
KingDDDimento : Because they're egotistical pricks when it comes to gaming?
xfighter1138 : yea but still theyre still making the steps necessary for next gen gaming microsoft is planning for the future not everything's gonna work fine the first time. You think playstation move is going to be perfect? microsoft is making more steps for its customers then any other company. and kinect was featured at comic con and there were no problems so there's my logic.
ps chat roulette is a FEATURE not mandatory its just another one of the great things kinect will be able to do.
Twistedsnow9 : What steps exactly? As in a downgrade since as I said before half the games are onrails while others seem like Milo don't exactly seem like fun and only work as say a tech demo. The difference with PS Move and Natal is that Sony isn't pimping it out and acting what it exactly is; extra sprinkles for your gaming experience with a more fluid interface. Microsoft showed off the console which was mostly for casual gamers and yet they forgot that the audience there is much more hardcore gamers. Also showing it off at ComicCon? PERFECT place to show off a gaming console. What great things can Kinect do that I can't so with my controller already? Video chatting and voice control which is deeply flawed. Say it does flop, what do they have to depend on after? Halo and Fable?
No offence, but are you really trying to say Microsoft is good with helping out customers? It took them nearly five years to fix a major console flaw.
