    Surprise surprise. It wasn't by a small margin either, by a lot as you can see.

    Shoot, wrong area. Can a mod please move it to the General Consoles Section?

    Surprising, indeed. Funny enough, PS3 fever has swept my workplace, with employees picking them up. We have GT5 trailers on the monitors throughout the store (among other games). Wonder if there's a connection. : D

    Now I'd like to make a prediction:

    This thread will start a flame war, just like every other thread that shows even the slightest comparison of consoles. In other words, it should be amusing.

    No, but seriously, nobody cared about the PS3 where I live, it's all about the Wii and 360 here. However that can change.

    Not gonna buy one for a while though, I've got an excellent computer that I can play resource-hungry games on, and at better graphics and speeds too heh.

    If that's the case, how do you explain GBAtemp's existence?

    So now people's opinions about consoles actually count? When did you change your mind? About the time you saw this?

    But why do you do this all the time, Ze? Move on, people around here are biased for nintendo, end of story. What do you gain from engaging in such business? It's a waste of your time, man.

    I have about the same number of PS3 exclusive games that I bought and 360 exclusive games that I burned. I don't think PS3 lacks good games, PS3's failed launch titles and crap multiplatform game quality in early stages (actually even until late 2007) branded "PS3 has no games to play" in people's heads. That's gonna be tough to overcome.

    Also Gametrailers unfair 360 vs PS3 videos did a amazingly good job in making general public think PS3 version is always inferior.
    I mean, do you really need to SEE the video of composite vs component to figure out which one's gonna be better?

    I don't trust the poll. 1053361 votes? More like the poll was already created with one million votes spreaded out the way IGNorant staff wanted, and got 53361 extra votes.
    Why? Because it's IGN. Who reads their reviews, the score is basically dependent on how much money they received under the table. I'd rather buy a game and waste $60 - resale than trust their reviews.
