Myst V: End Of Ages is kickass- makes me want to get the previous titles in the Myst series.

So what are peoples' opinions on the next-gen consoles? Here's my mini-analysis:

The PS3 is a hard one, since there hasn't been any actual in game footage and no one has gotten to play the console yet, but I think in terms of power it's equal with the 360. Even the developer behind MGS3 has said he only wanted to develop for the PS3 because it was "newer".

An obvious advantage for the 360 is by the time the PS3/Revolution come out, it's going to have a pretty big catalogue of games and developer's will have already got to grips with the console. Also, I think Microsoft could afford (and likely will) slash the price of 360 and it's games by the time the PS3/Revolution come out. Also, Xbox Live has proven to be extremely popular, and Sony has only hinted at a similar system for it's PS3. For now, from the abysmal launch line up and problems with the hardware, things can only get better with the 360.

On the other hand, I don't think the PS3 will come out in early spring as predicted. I would guess a Japan launch would be possible in late autumn. And by that time, some hardware specs could've changed... Who knows? Sony has always been sly regarding console performance, and we could see it outmatch the 360 in terms of graphics capability.

The Revolution, well, no one really knows much about it apart from the fact that it's going to be cheaper, graphically inferior, and have a completely different controller than the other two systems (Think "3D mouse").

Overall, I would say the three consoles are actually quite evenly matched. The 360 would already be well established in the market by the time the other two come out, though I very much doubt it will get the fanbase Bill Gates wants it to have in Japan.

The Playstation has a huge fanbase across the world, and perhaps Sony has a few tricks up it's sleeves (there's a Sony event sometime in February, where I'm sure they'll divulge more info).

Nintendo isn't really popular in Europe/America, but it's absolutely huge in Japan. Just look at the DS (which I guess was a sort of testing platform for Nintendo's "new and innovative" ideas) which sold millions in Japan. The Japanese proved to receptive to Nintendo's new ideas, therefore It's a sign of good things to come for Nintendo in Japan, but not really anywhere else.

Phew..

There was a non-playable demo that came with the PSP and I honestly thought the in-game footage was a movie. It looks absolutely awesome.

gta is the most important thing for me too, no dubt. I just got Liberty city stories though, the one for psp. Not bad for a hand held consol.

i own an xbox and a ps2 at the mo and to be honest, when there's a choice between the two, i.e. gta on xbox or gta on ps2...i'd take the ps2. just seems way more playable to me. but the xbox is easier for FPS's...

I liked the Metal gear solid's they did, 1-3, although 2 was my favourite, the first was classic..

Killzone is amazing, never get bored of it, 2 player is pretty cool... and the tony hawks pro skaters..arent bad now and then..

PS3 should be wicked, with MGS4 and Killzone 2, and all the other great games im sure will come out of it..

There's a GTA style game coming to the 360 in March called Saint's Row...
Oh and how's your PSP? I'm currently deciding wether to get a PSP or DS, and so far I'm leaning towards the DS. The PSP is quite expensive, and it hasn't got anything new to offer in my opinion.

Actually the PS2 has tons more RPGs than the Xbox, but I get what you're saying: the Xbox has more European style RPGs. I'm an Xbox guy too, since most of my favourite titles are exclusive to Xbox/PC (Think of games like KOTOR I/II, Fable, Morrowind, Halo, Call of Cthulhu, Half Life 2) and I consider the Xbox to be a mini PC gaming machine.

Also the Xbox seems more, how can I put it, "organic". Whenever I think of Playstation I think of something cold and unnatural. Weird huh?

Well like I said, Sony's holding an event sometime in February, but I don't think that's what you're talking about. Do you mean E3?


With the new consoles, I'm definitely getting either a PS3 or 360, but I'm waiting a while to see how things play out. I might get a Revolution after though, If I deem it worthy.

Yeah, it was a Medal Of Honour-type game - I don't know the name of it, though. It looked so realistic and awesome.

No, it was more of a World War II game.
