well every time i watch the new PS3 commercials, they use the old ps1 and ps2 layout, they just changed the symbol color to white, and when it goes "play-sta-tion" instead of the old playstation logo, it's ps3, it's sad, PS3 is so down in sales, it has to mooch off the ps1 and ps2, :lol2, and before you rant, by "mooch" i mean, not be original

Perfect examples

watch the beginning and end, notice the change?

it was!!! and still going strong as far as i'm concerned, like i said it's sad the the xbox360 took over the xbox, mostly cause they discontinued the xbox, but the backwards compatibility just won everyone over. The ps2 still beats the ps3 by a long shot, you still get the games, excluding a few, on the ps2 for cheaper, you can even still buy a ps2 for cheaper than the ps3, like i sad, it's very sad

The "Playstation" sound added to the end of the video was to maintain their tradition. It was used on the Playstation 1 and 2, why not on the Playstation 3?

Also, I find fun in games, not in figures and sales.

Before you go whining about how stupid I am for liking the Playstation 3, let me tell you, I WANT AN XBOX 360. Not for Gears or Halo (since we already have Resistance, Killzone, and Metal Gear Solid) but for Fable and those other RPGs. Also, I want the XBLA titles T.T And they actually support our country so I can buy them with my credit card. Too bad I don't have the money to buy an Xbox 360. And there's a massive overload of PS3 titles (not counting PSN titles since I can't buy them with my credit card) :)

Whats backwards compatible?

it means you can play older games on the newer system

example:

xbox360 can play xbox games

PS2 can play ps1 games

PS3 can't do anything

Well think about it, Sony vs Microsoft. Of course Microsoft has the advantage because of all the money they have. Sony can't afford to be original, they'll lose more sells. And actually, Microsoft, for such a rich company, doesn't really have good ecxlusives. Whereas the Sony exclusives, they're AMAZING (LBP, MGS4, Resistance, Uncharted, GoW)

FFVII is on the PSN not 8 and we barely got it yesterday after the Sony conference. I bought it right away :grin:

i really like the ps3 but it costs too much and i can't play my ps2 games, i still wouldn't trade my 360 for a ps3 even if it could play my ps2 games

whoops, I put 9 instead of 7. I meant 7.

Yesterday?! your kidding me, that is one of the few games really legendary in Sonys history. They should have had that as a launch title.

It WAS backwards compatible, but after they stopped selling the 80gb w/ MGS4 they dropped backwards compatibility.

Mine plays em :p I don't really see the point in the 360 other than Fable. All good games on the 360, PS3 has. Not only that, but they play better on the PS3. Not to mention RRoD. PS3 just seems like a better way to go. I'll get a 360 maybe when I get a job, but I don't think I'd play it much and I'd sure as hell wouldn't pay for online.

the Netflix is the most useful thing I see for 360 and ps3, since I like a lot of epic tv shows, but never get the chance to watch them anymore

lol i don't know anyone that has had a Rrod, i think that it's just a weak argument but i don't care, also how do they play better?

Ps3 has overall better components, they have a more complicated programming language though

it's true but i wanted him to answer it ^^, xbox 360 has better graphics though

unfounded.
they have stats that are so similar you can't say they are better. that is the system's GPU and whatnot.

if you were to say, GOW, compared to Resistance, resistance looks better. its only certain games compared to others. this is where your claim comes to both sides of the fence

Sorry I wasn't paying attention. I've played games on the 360 a couple times and the PS3 just looks better. And I don't really like the 360 controller. And if you honestly think the 360 can handle MGS4 graphics.. then I recommend you go and play MGS4 and re-think it..

that reminds me.
The PS3 is getting 3 EXCLUSIVE FF titles. adding to and introducing new sections of the FF genre.

but FFXIII is coming to the 360.
they ALL look epic

one game doesn't change the fact that the xbox 360 has better graphics. still i think resistance is pretty cool

What 3 FF titles? I only know of FFXIII and FFXIV O.o

It's not just one game. Any multiplatform game I've seen has looked better on my PS3. That being said, I should mention I haven't really seen many games on the 360. And I'm really not that big of a resistance fan for the same reason I don't like Halo (futuristic guns).

They are compilations.
Ivalice Alliance, is the FF13
Fabula Nova Crystallis is FF14

Depends on what model you buy.

Ivalice Alliance is FF12 and Tactics
Fabula is FF13
FF 14 is online so it's not part of any compilation.

Didn't you watch E3 The Metal Gear Franchise is now on the 360 also

I KNOW. I watched the WHOLE of Microsoft's presentation. And, only MGS: Rising was announced for 360 (and it's also coming to the Playstation 3).

What I'm talking about is METAL GEAR SOLID 4: Guns of the Patriots.

Hideo Kojima is only involved in MGS:R as a producer. And, I doubt that MGR (this is what I will call it from now on) will focus on stealth (it is Raiden after all). And, don't give me the "sneak in" shown at the end of the teaser, that was a parody of the "Jump in" during the end of 360 trailers/videos.

Also, LIGHTNING BOLT ACTION is different from TACTICAL ESPIONAGE ACTION.

If you want to be able to play a game without killing anybody, you go to Metal Gear. If you want to go killing everybody, you go to action games or Splinter Cell.
