Re: Who is getting a PS3 then?

yes but oyu have to remember all the hyperbole the console makers use.
sony is probably the worst,eg all the emotion engine,change the face of gaming v's the dreamcast.
sega would probably have done better going head to head rather than starting early.

v's the 360 remember its got the PSU built in and to compare directly add an HD DVD drive and wireless adapter

Re: Who is getting a PS3 then?

yep, i know it has all that in it., its just that it shocked me by how big it was.,
its bigger than the 360 in every angle, and the 360 isnt that small to begin with.,.,
you'd be mad to buy one at the moment, the prices will drop in the near future when all the hype of it dies down.,.,
then i might get one, if theres good games.,

Re: Who is getting a PS3 then?

I used to be loyal to Sony when they were building the old Playstation and Playstation 2. Thanks to fact they've shot themselves in the foot countless times I'm not going to bother with it. After playing a few Nintendo games on the Gamecube it's made me realise how much I missed the old games by Nintendo, therefore I'll see if I can try to aquire a Wii by the end of April. By then they should be in stock, though my parents might kill me given the fact I've finally bought a Nintendo DS handheld.

Re: Who is getting a PS3 then?

I heard today, there's one Mil for Europe and that's not a high number so maybe they are struggling to sell. Understandable, who wants to pay that sort of money other than the die hard sony fan boys.

Oi!!!!!

I am not a fanboy. I just like playing on the latest stuff. If M$ and Nintendo bring out a Wii60 next week, i'll have that.

On a lighter note, got an email from Game, PS3 is in holding ready for dispatch.

Perhaps people have finally got fed up of being ripped off in Europe in terms of cost and features? It's been widely publicised after all.

That's what my money is on to be honest, if I wasn't getting a PS3 from work then I don't know if I would buy one on principle.

Gazza, I am not saying you are a fan boy mate

It's more aimed at those people who refuse to believe there is any other console out there than the sony machine, my brothers one of them, he thinks he's a gamer but has only ever had sony machines FANBOY !
He refuses to listen despite me having a far greater knowledge of the industry, he can't afford many games and with the 360 currently having lots of 20 games out there he still goes and buys a PS3

I love all games, if I had my way I'd have them all. But with space, rather lack of being an issue,,,,,,

Re: Who is getting a PS3 then?

I'm tempted to get one, but I have a 360 here which I only play on a few times a week, mainly Pro Evo and Worms!! and I have the 360 HD-DVD drive. So I don't think its worth me paying nearly 500. Might wait until the price drops and some decent games are out.
