Where do you people stand with all this console bashing lately?

Iíve just never understood all this Next Gen stuff. The normally unbiased opinions of the penny arcade boys have even jumped into the ***** fight. Itís quite a tragic read when you see respected Ďjournalists/game industry analysts/jammy *******í diving straight into the same lame lop sided arguments that every lobotomized forum troglodyte vomits.

The penny arcade write good guy ĎTychoí (they donít have real names anymore) states that the Sonyís line up is abysmal, a truly horrid scope of games that no one with the correct cranial workings would ever queue up for. He then says that itís obvious that Sony didnít want to release just these titles. Well no ****; Iím sure they would have loved to have released triple A gold plated super bling titles on launch day, but what console ever has!

More than any other aspect of these consoles bashing shenanigans it annoys me that they are comparing machines on equal grounds despite x360 huge time advantage. I have no problems when criticism is laid at any console when it is a clear disadvantage, an obvious problem and **** up they have created. But when a consoles opening titles are compared to that of a console already over a year old something is wrong.

You cannot pour scorn over Sony for that. Do they think that no one queued overnight for x360ís of course they did and they had an awful selection of games to choose from then 'King Kong' and have had until recently
-thats over a year-

When the x360 was launched the PS2 already had an abundance of titles worth buying and still had numerous gems to be released. Would it be fair to compare the two consoles, I donít think so! (cos the PS2 would have stomped all over its head)

Huff puff Ė stupid journalists

I donít have anything against Microsoft and there xboxís or even have any sort of leanings towards Sony and there playstations. It should always come down to the games. The media surrounding these machines will always write articles condemning one while praising another simple because people (and I use the term lightly) enjoy reading the smack talk.
Itís like a nerds O.K. magazine, the Jerry Springer shows or the inbreds that go watch WWF shows.

Oooohhh Iím so mad at you MegaMaster cos you stole my signature moooooooove OOOhh yeah [flex flex]
ĎWhat do you have to say to that MegaMaster?í
Owwooga owwooga me break chair over DangerDumplins head! aaaeeeeeeeeiiiii

Fake, manipulated ***** fighting to the baying of slack jawed humanoids ensues.

I refuse to be sucked in by the perceptible idiocy surrounding these consoles any longer. Just shut up till they give me the god damn games.

Maybe Iím just becoming too cynical; after all I see the same level of absurdity in every other form of media.
Sigh Ií am too world weary for this here weary world! I just want to play and read about games im not interested in all this other crap!

I avoid it so devoutly that I don't even know the release dates. If they have release dates. I'll take your word for all this though, it sounds about right.

I don't really follow the console wars too closely myself, mostly since I don't have much interest in the console or the games offered on the platform.

Many of these people are buying these systems in anticipation to their favourite game series to be released or just because they like to have the best thing going. And to be honest, it's not much different than the PC market.

Lots of people will go buy next generation hardware as soon as it comes out. You don't hear them camping out at night but you can be assured it's shipped directly to their house.

I prefer being a PC enthusiast myself because I like to tinker with the hardware and software. Most of the games I'm interested in are released on PC anyways.

We have Eve (and other games) and others have their own tastes. I don't think it's as big of a deal as people make it.

I think the only good console made since the early 90s was the Nintendo 64, and only because it had Super Smash Brothers.

The question isn't whether the Playstation 3 sucks or not, but whether it sucks more or less than the Wii and Xbox 360 Laughing

Correction: Playstation 1 was also good, it had Worms/Worms Armageddon/Worms World Party/etc.

Oh FFS. You have got to be kidding me. The only console games you've liked in the last 2 generations (2 and a bit counting the XBox360) are SSB and Worms?
And worms was a PC game anyway.

Would rather play on the PC. Or it's real home the Amiga.

*coff* Mario 64 *coff*

It's nothing new but with the internet and the launch of 2 new systems at the same time all the fan boys have come out of the wood work.

Me personally am going to get a Wii, as better and better GFX means nothing. That and the fact I've not found many games for the PS1, PS2, PS3, Xbox or Xbox360 that I would want to play.
