That PS3 controller looks like it will be quite uncomfortable if you ask me, those handles are bit too big.

Lightwing, Enders Game was one of my favourite books, I havent red more than two other parts, becouse they where kinda boring, but, he wrote a lot of other books, and every one of them I red was very good. And also, the things that you do not like, like the game being colorfull, are the things that I like, the universe is a colorfull place(Not counting the black void thingy that's almost everywhere between the colorfull things ) so I can't understant what's wrong in a Sci-Fi game being colorfull, and the plot is interesting, besides it has something I like very much, it idealizes humans(at least the good ones) and gives them super human powers, which I also like. I've been tracking this game since it began, And I can't wait for it, becouse I'm fed up with people going "wow" playing brainless doom-like shooters I like Rayman, BG&E, All sorts of RPG games, and games that are pleasant to play and never let you get bored. Well, people have different standards becouse I can't find a single thing that I wouldn't like in Advent. Give me LBA3, BG&E2 and Baldurs Gate, Neverwinter Nights made with Kotor's engine and I'll be very happy.

PS3 looks fabulous, although the controller looks strange. Dunno about the Revolution, it reminds me of a router standing on it's side.

I can't believe I spended an hour watching the Nintendo conference on Gamespot. I recommend it, especially the DJ playing Elektroplankton.

Hehehe. Yeah I spended an hour too on it. Gamespot too btw.
But I could have used that time better, because we still don't have graphic demo's and spec's of the revolution...

I'm pretty amazed by the specs of the new consoles. Everything is really powerful. As far as I remember, the leap between affordable home computing and consoles was never that big.

The PS3 specs have some rather strange stuff:

USB: Front x 4, Rear x 2 (USB2.0)

Why so many USB ports? I mean, I can think of uses for USB ports in a console, but why would anyone need six of them at the same time? I think Sony either have something under their sleeves or it's a bit overkill.

The PPC core they chose was nice. And also the GPU looks killer. And it can read any shit you throw in it, backwards compatibility was kept, very nifty.

Now the design...
..........................
Well, let's say I never felt the need to be able to kill a kangaroo with my homely objects, let alone my console's controller... and although I may once have felt like owning a Spiderman lunchbox, that feeling is long gone now.

But who knows. Perhaps the controller is comfortable, and perhaps the abundance of handy features will compensate for the crappy look of the overall thing. It was a disappointment though.

Anyway, as for the other console, it looks all nice and dandy - may I add that Microsoft still doesn't seem to realize they're selling a PC in an unusual case. I'm not really interested in anything but Playstation, though (MGS!). The N5 looks better than the competition, but it also looks strange and ugly. They're all very ugly.

Oblivion has been confirmed to come out on Xbox2. That's great for 2 reasons:

The graphic performance

And the AI support that XboX2 will have should be a great addition to the game's new Radiant AI.

See, I think the opposite. I think it will fit in the hands of both big and small handed gamers. Time will tell my bushy friend. Time will tell.

Agreed. But its more by default.
The PS3 look hedious imo. (especialy the controller)
Xbox2 looks marginaly better.

Nintendo Rev looks great because they thought "sod it, just go for minimalistic look...cant fuck that up"
Dont like the stand too much....but seeing as they are open to surgestions for other colours is good. (allthough I love Black and Blue glow)


Now all I need is to put it upright in a white room ^_^


Whats cool about the Rev:

1. That big glowing slot can take small cube games....thats one *really* cool drive mechcanism.

2. 512MB internal flash memory plus slots for more. (unspecified, probably SD Cards). Flash is direct cheap compared to HD, and is much easier to make totaly piracy prove.

3. It can play every Nintendo game ever made O_o
(NES,SNES,N64 ver download, Rev and GC ver the slot)

4. Output to Computer moniter.

What isnt cool at the moment:

1. Unknowen specs
2. Unknowen controller
3. Unknowen games. (Except Mario, Zelda, Final Fantasy CC online and Smash Brothers)

Good...but not amazing.
Resident Evil 4 looks more realistic. (as does probably a few pc games)
The shadows in that pic is the only thing that says next generation to me.

Skin shader technology there dosnt look too amazing, but the great textures and high geometry (or bump) more then makes up for it.

Some nice subtle "noise" effects going on in the background are a nice touch to make it feel film. (not technicaly hard, but it is a nice touch).

Like to see this in motion to see how much of that is real time lighting/shadeing and how much is burnt in.

(probably a mistake)

The bottom of the trouser look good...could be geometry but physics would be impressive.

That screenshot does look better then any footage I have seen from the Xbox360 though.
Obviously possed for the shot.


One thing I applude microsoft on:

Getting impressive games to demo, not showing tech demos and theortical numbers.

BTW, im really impressed by the nintendo revolution, i think they really got it right with the design, thank god for the large screen shot

Xbox 360 is nice, ps3 sorta sux, but the size, DAMN NINTENDO REVOLUTION IS SMAAAAALLLL which is SOOO cool, plus the compatibility is cool. Man i think ill just invest for the games now, i like gta and i like adventure games, i like zelda, i like halo, so its really tough, nintendo makes the least interisting games (for me that is) while sony makes too much rubbish to fill in between the really good, xbox has solid titles, but not too many.

I think Sony won the market simply because they tap into JAPANESE AND AMERICAN markets so well, they make games americans will like (shoot em ups, and gta style games) and games that japanese people adore (FF and other rpgs) while Xbox is very much american, and nintendo too japanese (whens the last time i remember seeing good war simulators on a nintendo?)
