    PLAY STATIONS vs. NINTENDO 64


    What a little fanboy I was! [​IMG] was digging around the house the other day and thought you guys might get a kick out of it. I have a feeling I was wrong about the carts holding more memory.

    I play N64 games more now than before. PlayStation stuff has kinda dated a little for me, the only game I still play from time to time is Medal of Honour.

    Sony did a great job on the PlayStation and I reckon they rejuvenated an industry that was controlled by a company like Nintendo who basically bullied everyone to doing stuff their way, and they forced its European gamers to pay extortionate prices for games during the SNES days. They just got a bit too conceited and set in their ways so that they pissed a lot of gamers off. The Playstation was the cool funky machine for everyone, something the casual gamer can just turn on for half an hour and play after work while the N64 was the pricey geeky gamers machine.

    Its funny to see the roles reversed today.

    Anyway while the PlayStation has more good games, for me the N64 has more classics. The time and effort put into each of Nintendo's first party titles was amazing.

    EDIT: PSX controller were terrible though, mine started clicking after a few months.

    some incorrect facts but honestly, i love my n64 more than my playstation (although i still had some good times with the ps) even though my ps is modded and have heaps more games for it.

    generally n64 does have better graphics capabilities than ps, however i believe it was difficult to utilise due to some other techincal limitation (ram or something i can't remember).

    The N64 and Playstation were both very good consoles... They're two of the best ever!

    I loved my N64 so much back then, so many good times. Golden eye, mario, perfect dark etc. etc. played it for many many hours.


    I guess I'm still a nintendo fanboy at heart

    I remember when I asked my parents for a N64 after I saved up for ages.. I got back from school and there was a PS1 waiting for me.. Apparently the shop assistant convinced them what was best for their 10 year old child.

    What's a Play stations? LOL.

    I wanted an N64 at first but ended up buying a PS1. Best decision ever considering I modded the PS1. A few months ago I went through my pile of 194 PS1 games and threw out about half of them. Not sure why I ever rented and burned them in the first place. I mean, extreme skydiving? Okay, that's going in the trash can.

    Why would the name it "Extreme" Skydiving? I mean how much more extreme could skydiving possibly get? You're plummeting to the earth thousands of feet in the air at god-knows how many miles per hour HOPING that your parachute will open. More importantly, what the hell could they possibly add to make it more extreme? "Today Jimmy, you'll be jumping out of a plane... WHILE ON FIRE!" [​IMG]

    N64 only focus on kiddy games like mario (sorry i dont really own a N64)....while PSX focus more on mature games like Metal Gear Solid, Parasite Eve, Silent Hill, Resident Evil, Dino Crisis and many more....

    well i have own PS and PS2, and i'm getting a PSP end of this year....

    BTW, the only Nintendo gamming product that i have is my NDS and i'm been regreting for getting one (thanks to Pokemon).....and i almost got my self a Wii, luckly a test play of Wii save me from it....I will never ever get a Wii unless they release a none Wiimote version.

    Joypad > Wiimote = fact

    No offense intended, bud. But you're probably on the wrong forum if you don't care for the DS or the Wii and think Nintendo is too kiddy. [​IMG]

    Nope. don't know what you mean calvin [​IMG]



    Wait... you're that furry aren't you? You dislike nintendo because it's kiddy and you regret buying your DS [​IMG]

    Why did pokemon make you regret buying your DS?


    The PSX is a great console I was just a blind fanboy when I was 10 years old. I still like the N64 better though, more good times with its built in 4 controller ports [​IMG]
