    Sony losing its exclusives would be the most amazing thing to happen. Then I could be satisfied with a wii which I'm getting anyways.

    Universal console would be a world-wide monopoly. I doubt anyone would go for it anyways, and what would stop game companies or other techie companies from going off on their own making their own system. Imagine square-enix made a system that exclusively played their games.

    Playstation won't die tho since sony doesn't just make game systems. Its not sega all over again. Sony can stay for the long haul. Aren't they reducing the price of the ps3 in Japan soon?

    Nintendo has a great track record of strong first party titles that have always been very popular among a vast audience. While the strength of the Wii does not rely on its hardware, it makes it up with a good price point that's attractive to both customers and developers/publishers. You can be reassured thereof, that the Wii won't be like the Gamecube. Celebrated developers and, what I call them, video game thinkers like Gabe Newell from Valve and Hideo Kojima from Kojima Productions have declared their strong interest in the Wii as a gaming platform.

    And I emphasize on the term "gaming platform" because it really is what the Wii is, unlike the multimedia entertainment devices that the Xbox 360 and the Playstation 3 are. By focusing on what make games what they are, Nintendo is in a very strong position. What makes games what they are? First and foremost, they need to be enjoyable, not frustrating and easy to pick up and addictive. Games like that are Warioware, Wii Sports and Mario Party. But of course, the Wii also caters for the more serious gamers. Super Smash Bros. Brawl IS the ultimate button masher. In many gaming events, the latter is present while the more "serious-looking" games (Tekken, Virtua Fighter) are often absent.

    Nintendo games tend to live longer than anything else. Fact.

    Dunno about that but I do know that I still play it and that my copy of Gears of War has been shelved weeks ago.
    If you look up my XBL Gamertag, you will see that the game I play the most on my 360 are Geometry Wars and Lumines Live.

    sony really jumped the gun on that one. that would have been a big ass nail in their coffin for sure.


    I'd like to die with the songs I love stuck in my head. I hope to make the most of these hollow bones we become.
    I raise a toast to the the souls that sang all along. I've been gathering friends to just to make some sounds,
    before the ship goes down, I've been making amends by making the rounds before the whole world ends

    You may know Sony most readily as the company that recently recalled something on the order of every laptop battery ever made because of a small glitch (they explode). Then there was the "rootkit" debacle, where Sony secretly installed hidden bullshit on your computer. One of Sony BMG's presidents handled the situation with the delicacy of a gang rape with this quote: "Most people, I think, don't even know what a rootkit is, so why should they care about it?" Good point, shit-head! And before that, Sony was known for its shitty optical drives in their PS2s, resulting in a class action lawsuit. The word "shitty" in the previous sentence is a bit misleading, since I also use the word to describe Renée Zellweger's life, and having to void your warranty by adjusting a cog to fix a misaligned laser inside your PS2 is slightly shittier.

    Not content with the reaming they give consumers with their shoddy products and condescending attitude, Sony determined that it didn't have enough bad press, so they decided to wield their giant gnarled cock of corporate greed again, this time training it on a small-time import shop called "Lik Sang." Lik Sang was a haven for nerds who wanted to import games and systems from other countries. It turns out that Lik Sang broke some major laws that not only earned them the scorn of Sony, but pissed Sony off to the point where they sued Lik Sang into oblivion. So what was this grave infraction committed against Sony that not only threatened the very foundation of this giant multi-national corporation, but warranted destroying the lives and careers of a group of dorks running a gaming website? Simple: they committed the mortal sin of selling Japanese PSPs to European gamers. Oh no! Not that!

    When I read the law suit, I did a double take to make sure I read it correctly. Sony is suing to prevent people from selling PSPs? Great move, morons! Because if there's anything Sony needs right now, it's fewer people buying PSPs. In fact, PSP sales are part of the reason Sony expects to lose $1.7 billion dollars in their gaming division by March. That means that I and anyone else who makes any money at all between now and March (or at least manages not to lose more than $1,699,999,999.99) will officially make more money than Sony's gaming division. I rule.

    This isn't the first time Sony bullied a gaming website for selling PSP imports. In June of 2005, Sony sued a website called ElectricBirdLand (Sony literally hired men in dark sunglasses to deliver the papers to the defendant, because Sony is insecure about the size of its penis), stating that the sale of Japanese PSPs to the UK could hurt their ability to exploit the "excitement and anticipation of the market." Hey Sony, you know what else could help you exploit the excitement and anticipation of the market? The PSP not sucking Sony's strategy towards portable gaming seems to be to take the same shitty first generation Playstation games that weren't great to begin with, and make them portable so now we can take an example of Sony's utter-inability-to-stop-sucking with us everywhere we go. Nobody wants to buy movies in your stupid proprietary format, assholes!
    sony hates you
    heh.

    sony lost as soon as it decided that people wanted to have a "media center" it tries to do everything and ends up doing nothing. Pretty much the story of all "all-in-one" devices.
    *edit* although the xbox 360 takes a similar approach it is much more game oriented...

    My favorite of the old consoles are the PS and the PS2, but now I think I'll go down the Wii path. I've always looked at the Xbox franchise as a load of worthless BS and now the PS3 probably will be buried with them. Sad thing is that I will not get to play ffXIII if that is the case.
