Given that Microsoft is coming out on top, I will be curious if they come out as cocky as Sony was, when they were on top following the PS2, or not.
Wait what? Microsoft is last in terms of hardware sales XD
Depends who you ask, and not counting the Wii of course. To be safe, they both have sold 70+ mil internationally and that's about all we can say.
Also: This thread is eating posts like a mofo.
No it is officially now. Sony sold more PS3s world wide. According to their latest finance calls.
Most games sold better on the 360, and when you factor in things such as Gold and video services, Microsoft won. It's a really dumb argument to have since it basically comes down to which metric you find most important.
Get ready for another year of holograms, Facebook games, soccer, and non-information on Metal Gear as Konami is doing another early e3 press conference. The thing worth noting though is that Gamespot has exclusive rights to stream, which makes me wonder if that will impact the live stream here that I would usually watch.
When you think Nintendo and their core franchises (bar maybe Pokemon), you think of some of the greatest games that keep raising the bar to previously unimaginable levels. While this has it's obvious advantages; when it misses the target in the slightest it seems like a disappointment. Compare that with the first four console Zelda's which went; most open game ever for it's audience at the time, sidescroller which went in some interesting ways, refinement of the first game that did things never seen before, and conversion of the general LTTP format into 3D that also defined many of the key conventions of 3D gameplay. When everything else seems like the format of Ocarina of Time format with added refinements and less experimentation, a sense of fatigue can build for some people. That being said there is an element of panic, especially with Nintendo doubling down on key franchises to a degree unseen in most other companies.
The last time that Take Two delayed a game so it could get the work it needed, we got Spec Ops: The Line. That and the fact that I've been interested in this game, especially the setting since it was announced means i'll give it a fair look.
