After weighing it over, I'm selling my ps2 (just sold my xbox) and going for the PS3, as long as I can get the 20G or 60G for backwards compatibility. Of the games I really want, only Ninja Gaiden II and Dead or Alive games are 360 exclusives. And there's a good chance of NGII being ported.

Also, if I'm spending that much money, I don't want to live in fear of the Red Ring of Death.

Also, FFXIII.

I've never enjoyed a GTA title. Like I said, Team Ninja's games are about it for me where Xbox semi-exclusivity is concerned.

I found a used 60 GB PS3 and traded in my PS2 and the rest of my XBox games. I'm going to miss KOTOR and DOA, but I did pick up Ninja Gaiden Sigma and it's stunning. Also, Devil May Cry 4. So far I'm quite pleased, though I'm not thrilled about trying to transfer my saves. I've been finding approximations online and copying them over with a usb stick, though, and that seems to be working well enough for PS2 games and any PSOne Final Fantasy. I just don't want to pay 15 bucks for something I'll use once.

I never understood the fanboy mentality over consoles.

I haven't bought any of the next gen yet...very few of the new games appeal to me and I still have a very large PS2 game back catalogue to explore.

GTA has always bored me so it has never been a selling point. I'll probably end up getting a PS3 just because of FFXIII and MGS4, two of my favourite franchises....and also because the PS3 will still get the greatest Japanese developer support, which are the majority of games I own.

That said I may still get a 360 sometime down the line, but at the moment there is nothing that makes me want to purchase any of the consoles right now.

Since Sony is the owner (or biggest stake-holder) of Blu-Ray that could be interesting...

For anyone interested, according to IGN, HD-DVD may be close to tanking:

Format War: HD DVD to Surrender?
Death watch begins for Toshiba.

by IGN Staff

February 15, 2008 -

Given recent marketplace advances made by rival Blu-ray in the format war, the word on the street is that Toshiba could be about to surrender and give up on HD DVD.

Reliable industry sources tell The Hollywood Reporter that it could happen in weeks.

Officially, Toshiba spokesperson Jodi Sally told the trade newspaper that they're still believers in the technology, but seemed to hint that a change is coming.

"Given the market developments in the past month," Sally said, "Toshiba will continue to study the market impact and the value proposition for consumers, particularly in light of our recent price reductions on all HD DVD players."

Sources tell THR that Toshiba's price cuts could be costing them some serious jack -- as much as several hundred dollars for each player sold. And unfortunately for the tech manufacturer, the sales jump they'd hoped for never materialized. That, coupled with the big-name retail defections of late, has reportedly convinced the company to prepare for defeat.

It seems like just a matter of time. We'll keep tracking the format war, and bring you news as it breaks!

Not only that, but today Wal-Mart followed Netflix and Best Buy and announced it would no longer support HD-DVD.

It's over.

Hi There,

Thought I woud post what I have, since its saturday arvo and I'm bored.


so it all started with a Xbox 360 which AT THE TIME was really awesome. then I got a few games and stuff.....then.....whoops I get the three red lights of death.

Ok, So I just call Micro$oft and get it fixed right?.....well I don't have exactly much free time, so I tried them when possible (mostly on friday nights/saturday afternoons) this went on for about 4 weeks, and each time I called I sat on the phone for an hour just to be on hold.....so instead of wasting more money sitting on the phone I sent them an e-mail explaining what was wrong......Micro$oft'$ reply?.....Give them a call!

So I gave up, all my games were sold on ebay, and the console is just collecting dust....in its box, maybe i'll go and throw it at Bill Gates one day

So, to SOLVE my problem, I went out and brought a Pricey PS3 (one of the "last" 60GB's I could find, well in Oz anyway.)

Ever since then have had not one single problem (apart from my TV in need of an upgrade) The PS3 has been awesome!

Safe to say, in what few gaming years i might have left, I won't be going near a micro$oft product again!....at least for a console.

I went to Toys R Us today and I had to laugh. Their display/demo 360 had the Red Ring of Death.

No Wii love

Some good games coming up...

Mario Kart Wii coming in a month or two.

Star Wars Force Unleashed and Top Spin Tennis 3 coming in the summer.

I still gotta get Mario Galaxy. Maybe Metroid Prime 3(don't know about that one).
