    Very sad, and STILL mostly true to this day, except the Slim is cheaper now. Still waiting for an epic PS3 game other than Warhawks, then MAYBE I'll get one when I get out of college.

    LOL mostly @ the part about the 'paltry 5 million' units of the next Nintendo console sold. Never doubt the big N!... except when it comes to peripheral support >

    Only 5 million units of what Nintendo will come up with next? Nintendo is the grand-daddy of all console-games (as in, the savior. Maybe the fireman?). Never doubt the big N. Never.

    You don't need to be an expert to see that the PS3 will beat the 360 in the end.

    This is back in 2004 when Microsoft haven't actually announced the Xbox 360 so it's referred to as the Xbox 2 in the article.

    The race between the 360 and PS3 will be so close that the average consumer won't notice. I bought a 360 because I'd rather enjoy these years now, than to wait for the PS3 to come out ahead, by when it won't really matter.

    The only reason the PS3 will probably end up beating the 360 is because they'll probably still be supporting the stupid thing like they have the PS2.
    So far the 360's only problem really is the hardware issues. I highly doubt they'll screw that up again.

    Though, how they are going to improve upon the 360 controller is beyond me. That thing is amazing. Maybe sony will clue in and make a less crappy controller too.

    Cross-platform games are starting to become a lot more common as well. But IMO the 360 controller is better, interface is better, online community overall is better (though PSN and XBL are both pretty bad in terms of maturity). So i'll always lean towards the xbox. If NATAL actually works, it'll be an amazing addition as well to the system. (though i'm still incredibly skeptical of it)

    The Wii is in the lead, but most of the games absolutely SUCK. People are only buying the wii because of it's motion sensitivity, but other than that the Wii sucks. (I've been a Nintendo fanboy my whole life, so this hurts me deeply [​IMG] )

    The PS3, until very recently, was WAY too expensive. Because of that, it has even fewer good games than the Wii, even now.

    The 360 has many good games, but it has so many issues (overheating, red ring of death, just plain not working, etc.) that it's worthless in my experiences.

    So you know what? This entire console generation SUCKS! That's why I'm using my Wii as an emulator, to play games from the ages when they were GOOD!

    SNES and Genesis FTW!

    I agree Chrisman for one reason: The colour brown. THERE ARE OTHER COLOURS YOU KNOW GAMES DEVELOPERS!
