M$oft is now starting to tie in Windows, Xbox, mobile, etc...with some pretty sick ideas. Not too mention they did land Grand Theft Auto IV for the X360 in 2007 to go along with Halo 3.

$600 dollars isn't so bad. I mean, you have people paying $299 for cell phones these days. If they are pricing the games at $69+ I would be more worried. You're also getting a next generation DVD player too (here is to Sony winning the DVD Wars).

If they don't win though, you've just invested a lot of money in a dead technology. I'll cross my fingers for anyone who buys a PS3.

Re: e3 happenings...

I have an X360, so I won't be getting a PS3 unless they start to show me some online gaming capabilities and Blu Ray does take off. Personally I don't think Sony can match the online play that M$oft already has in place and will never catch up. M$oft is really putting the resources in the xbox 360 and the online platform this year and for the foreseeable future...Sony could be in some trouble in this gen of gaming, but certainly will fight back in the next gen 4-5 years from now.

Re: e3 happenings...

Do you think that games are ever going to "hit the wall" in how realistic they can get?

Re: e3 happenings...

Until I can actually pimp out the girls in games, it's not realistic enough.

On a serious note, games are basically going to be "movies" that you play.

Re: e3 happenings...

no, but the improvements will be less and less noticeable.

right now physics are getting the big push, maybe lighting and audio will be the next thing to work on.

Re: e3 happenings...

I want to be in the game. You should be able to walk into a room and you run through the game and can pick up shit and do whatever. Maybe with some virtual reality goggles on your head or something.

Re: e3 happenings...

I'm hoping lighting. For me, that's the thing that's most noticable that I'm playing "a game". The audio is pretty good for me and I'm loving these THX-certified games.

You're speaking of my broken dreams. When I was like 10, I was thinking how cool it would be to have a game that was basically the entire world. Like a collaborative project where say a whole state films footage of basically every square inch of it. The project would be the biggest undertaking in history, but make it where EVERYTHING is interactive and you truly can "live your own paht" like in Fable. I remember I thought the game was something called "One Wish" when I came up with it. Like you had one wish (the wish had some limitations) and then you could live your life in first person view, interacting with all people and objects in the game. You could accelerate your life by 10x, 100x, or END and see where you finish. Like you could rob a bank in your home town and see if you could get away with it.

I honestly can see AI eventually going there. It's far-fetched, but honestly I don't think it's THAT far-fetched.

*Assasins Creed looked awesome and I'm a huge fan of the Prince of Persia titles and the fact that it loosely involves the Crusades has grabbed my attention.
*Dead Rising looked so much better this year than last and Enchanted Arms looks like it could give Final Fantasy a bit of a run for it's money graphically.
*Resistance:Fall of Man and Eight Days were the only PS3 titles that caught my attention.
*Anything Crytek does is gorgeous so I gotta upgrade my comp for that one.
*Super Smash Bros Brawl is gonna probably the most fun game to play with the Nintendo Wii.
*DOA Ultimate Volleyball has independent boob jigglage
*Hellgate London looks sweet as hell and hopefully the old Diablo team can pull off their FPS/RPG.
*Spiderman 3's character model looks almost exactly like the movie's cg version.
*Lemmings, Valkerie Profile, Ultimate Ghosts and Goblins, Field Commander, Online Chess Kingdoms and Ratchet and Clank r games that might convince me not to sell my PSP.
*The new Indiana Jones game looks like its gonna be full as hell to play.
*And last but not least Sonic for the 360 & PS3 looked incredible and looks to bring back Sonic from it's recent trail of crappy titles.
Any date on the Sonic release? I may have to save up for a 360.

I actually thought of the same thing at the same age. The potential for a game like that is there eventually, but think of the monthly cost for a game like that online.

It's Fable meets the Sims!

Re: e3 happenings...

sonic in 3d just isn't that great in 3d, the engine has to pump out polygons for huge levels to allow for the speed sonic needs, and unlike in 2d, in 3d its VERY eassy to go slightly off of the intended route and (with the speed multiplying that error) end up way off from where you should be.
