Hopefully it's not a 'perfect world' in the new FPSes. (Like the pavement is never worn, always jet black, there's never a stain on a carpet, etc.) Things like that make it too glossy, in my opinion.

Before this gets loxored, I just want to say: The Next-Gen topic pisses me the f*ck off. Seriously. A big jumbled mess of sh*t with people talking about 3 different systems and a hundred different games at once? f*ck that.

I'm done.

I agree completely. I don't know who locked this thread, but seeing as there are now 3 next-gen systems officially announced and unveiled, it's ridiculous to think that we can cram everything into one topic.

This is a gaming forum. Let's talk about gaming, and not constrict everything down to one thread. If anything, we can keep it down to a single thread for each big event, such as an unveiling/new game release/press release, etc.

So I officially declare this topic open, and I officially wag my wang in the face of the Next Gen thread.

It's only gonna cost 250 according to that article, I think I may have been swayed into getting one of those.

Way to hide behind your happy little account there, hunter. That text wasn't in the first post of the thread, and I'd be f*cked if I'm going to go through 16 pages of speculation to locate an announcement that should be in the first post.

It also says 'Daily Mirror' at the top of the page - I don't think a price has been officially set. It probably won't be for a long while yet, either.

Oh, average PC's of course have the power of 218 GFLOPS

and of course average PC's for your granny have Videohardware like the RSX with 300 Million Transistors (equivalent to Xbox GPU, PS2's graphics chip, both the Game Cube Flipper and Gekko chips, Xbox's PIII CPU, PS2's Emotion Engine, and an Athlon64 FX55.)

Of course, very average dozingoff.gif

Striking Resemblance!

and @ the mod Tsuroki, thank you for keeping this topic open, i was pissed when my Nintendo Hi-res Screens topic got locked,

but that stupid Next gen topic inst working, Combination topics like that Never work

No one looks at pinned topics cause there normally just annocements that dont get posted in, plus its too over flown, we need at least 3 differant topics for each console, screw the Next gen topic

QUOTE (IGN)
According a an article published in the May 17th edition of Japan's Mainichi Shimbun, the PlayStation 3 could be one of the most expensive mass-market videogame consoles ever created. Officials from Sony apparently told the newspaper that PlayStation 3s would sell in Japan for "less than 50,000 yen each." That translates to about $465 US dollars.

$465 Dollars works out at 249

Quite Expensive... But worth it

<3 Tsuro.

Thank God someone agrees. I'm not "bashing" your thread, though, hunter. I really don't have a problem with it now. It's really pretty informative if I want some quick information about any of the next-gen systems... but I have to wade through 17 pages of people speculating on what is or isn't going to happen because topics like this kept getting locked.

As for the price, I don't think it's going to be $450. Casual gamers aren't gonna shell out that kind of cash for the Playstation 3... Hell, not even I'm going to shell out that kinda cash.

I was thinking. (uh-oh) If it's organization you guys are looking for then why not make an official topic for each system? It might make the Official Next-Gen topic obsolete; but... Who the f*ck cares? This would work better anyway.

249? heh. PAL PS2s were 300 from the store brand new, and with the shortage incurred, They traded hands for about 500, one being sold in my local video rental store for 499.99. No games, no memory card, just the standard console, controller and demo disc.f*cking post wrappers!

Well, Cheaper it is, the more theyll get!
If its expensive not many people will buy, But make it cheaper, More people will buy, and its like, 1 and a half persons money, Making up for the more expensive price!

I dunno if they'll do this with the playstation 3, i doubt it cos its alot of money this time, but from what i know they keep the conversion rate between and $ as 1. So when the PS2 was realeased in America for $300 it was 300. But this is alot of money now so i dunno if that'll stay the same.
