I wouldn't judge a console purchase on the capacity of the discs as they are very rarely fully utilised.
I prefer the Wii. I don't like the 360 since it has issues of overheating and i have reserved my judgement of the PS 3 for while whilst it catches up with the rest of the console market in games.
It usually took a little longer for the PS 2 games as the emotion engine was apparently a bugger to code for.
Does the same problem exist with the PS 3?
You do get 13 year old kids moaning on COD4, but that's to be expected with any popular game. Just try and play with the right people.
It's just fun shooting them in the head.
Overall Xbox Live is fantastic.
hahah... we were doing some ear bashing on COD4 t'other night... taking the mickey out of the foriegn peoples and then they got angry and shouting... most amusing!!
We're called tera_dragon on PS3 if I've harrassed you I am most apologetic!
I'm not judging the console purely on its optical disc capacity, however you have to bear in mind games like Resistance Fall of Man (for example) actually use 18GB of the available 25GB single sided Blu-ray disc.I wouldn't judge a console purchase on the capacity of the discs as they are very rarely fully utilised.
In the world of high definition graphics/visuals the capacity is needed for movies and games otherwise they'd be no point inventing Blu-ray at all!?
As the PS3 matures, so do developer skills and the tools they use to make bigger, better and more detailed games. The PS3 has capacity to grow.
The Wii is a good console, but it's not for me. I feel the playability is a lot of fun with a group of friends, but the graphics haven't moved on since Nintendo 64. My personal opinion is that Nintendo went in too low with their Wii hardware specifications. You could debate a lot of games on the PS2 look better than they do on Wii. The end result is the bigger titles will never be released for Wii, such as GTA and CoD4.
I don't think PS3 is any more difficult to program for, but then again I'm not a programmer! I think it all depends what Development Kits software houses are given, but also, there's inevitably going to be a learning curve for the programmer too.
Oh and my vote is for the 360 at the moment as its networking features are far superior which for the moment makes them easier to use and more communal.
Have to admit that I find Rainbox Six: Vegas 2 on the Xbox 360 (Xbox Live) much more fun online than COD4; just because I prefer the game play.
COD4 is great online and it is a good feeling to get your own back on people online; but a better feeling doing it on Vegas 2. =P
I completed rainbow 6 las vegas: 2 this week (gotta love easter holidays), and i've been playing online like i did the original rainbow 6 las vegas. Gotta agree the gameplay is much better than COD4. Just need to unlock some more achievements now....... another reason to get the 360 instead of a PS3 if your buying it to play games, like i did (which is what a games console is for) the PS3's "Entitlement" is a naff copy of Xbox's achievements.
A friend of mine has an Xbox 360 and a PS3 we hooked them up and played the same game side by side, to compare (cannot remember the game) and the PS3 played it alot better, smoother and no hitches, the xbox paused slightly (split second) on some graphical scenes. The PS3 general played, looked and performed better.
I will be getting a PS3 in June for my b'day.
Picking up the PS3 update tonight... GT5: Prologue online tomorrow.
GT 5 (PS3) Vs Forza Motorsport 2 (360):
Gran Turismo 5 Prologue (ps3: 2008): Reviews
Forza Motorsport 2 (xbox360: 2007): Reviews
Nuff said really. 10 points is a LOT on metacritic. GT5 highest rating doesnt even get close to the forza average rating.
It is early but I doubt the number will change too much for GT 5
