    that's too much pride for sony if you ask me, considering they really have a bit of a problem with lineups on good games (yes there are good, great and fantastic games on the ps3, but compared to the WII & Xbox360 I think you get my point :) )

    Thats exactly what I was thinking... so apparently at some point there was a standoff where 2k games almost had to shoot Kaz Hirai to let them publish one of the best games of 2007 on his platform? What is this guy talking about. I guess he just enjoys adding more fuel to the fanboy flames.

    I think a lot of you are missing the point - Sony's standpoint is that they refuse to pay, or offer extra incentives, just to get an edge. That's a bit of an ethical higher ground.

    Sony!??? on the ethical higher ground? HAHAHAHAH

    all the Microsoft OS crap aside Sony is by far on the lower ethical ground overall.

    Everybody KNOWS microsoft is scum most of the time, and they just want to make a buck.... but remember Sony and their rotkit music CDs? etc etc... yeahhhhh

    at least the 360 has an awesome team behind it, driving the console further and further in the right direction... can't say the same thing about Sony.

    microsoft will always be crap as far as im concerned

    there windows server software is hopeless. Vista anybody? how long did xp take to patch and get working. ? xbox 360 has its issues
    red ring of death that was denied for 1 year then give 1 billion dollars to fix. the noise it makes kinda rules it out for night time play .

    pc all the way for me. Most if not all 360 exclusives come to pc .

    I find they are banking on honor (has anyone noticed that they are Japanese?) instead of profitability. The PlayStation, although their largest expenditure, isn't the only electronic device or digital entertainment Sony floats on. Consider the enormous Sony Music Group, their even bigger Sony Pictures, SOE, portable media players, and Ericsson.

    SP2 came out in 2004... so 3 years. Blue screens were still common well into SP2 as well... been using Vista for 3 or 4 months and it's never crashed on me and recovers itself without anything more than a "notice" if a dodgy 3rd party driver dies.

    Some people have extremely short memories. Vista is already much better than XP.. I wouldn't go back if they paid me.

    Have to agree here

    Whilst i don't approve of many of Microsoft's policies, they're definitely the lesser of two evils when you add Sony into the mix...
    Not sure i'll ever be able to forgive Sony for their utterly astounding levels of arrogance during the PS3 launch and their blatant disregard of any decency towards consumers with the whole CD rootkit scandal...

    Yes MS are bad as well, but not nearly as bad as Sony...

    > general Halo trash though

    Hear hear.

    I'm really tired of hearing about Halo, on which basis you'll have to excuse my constant banging on about it.

    Paging all fourteen year old 360 owners: Any of the Halo series is not a very good game. It's an average game, even a boring game. It's a game which embodies exactly what's wrong with consoles, in that it's had all the heart and soul ripped out of it to make it maximally inoffensive to the largest possible number of people.

    Enjoyment of Halo signifies one of two things: very, very successful neural reprogramming by the Microsoft publicity machine, or a distinct lack of imagination.

    Combat evolved? Combat made exactly the damn same as every other FPS, you mean...

    This forum, where there is, almost daily, at least one preschooler hammering with breathless desperation on his keyboard to express exactly how inexperienced he is in the field of computer games.

    This one?

    Every damn time the Xbox comes up someone brings up Halo like it's the second coming of Christ and it's mediocre
