Next Generation Consoles

Post by Shwoot » Fri Jul 08, 2005 11:47 pm

Hey I've been looking at these and I don't know which one I'm going to get! So I'm gonna show what the systems look like and some screens if possible. There isn't alot of information on these systems yet, so any comments I make are based on the little information that I have gathered.

Xbox 360
Image
Here's a screen shot,
Image You can see that there actually is a horizon, no more of that fog shit. There's even waves in the water! Check out those clouds too, you can see tell that the sun is coming from the left.

I can't find much on this, but apparently the Xbox 360 is designed for networking, only uses wireless controllers, and comes with a 20Gb hard disk. Scheduled release for Christmas.

PS3
Image
Again, a screen:
ImageHis pores are showing! You can see some stubble, and little hairs on his shoulder.

This is supposed to be the most powerful of the next generation consoles...that's about all I know.

Nintendo Revolution(?)
Image
I can't seem to find a screen shot, the thing won't be released for a while.

Handles both DVDs and GCN-format discs; wireless controllers; two USB 2.0 ports; and built-in Wi Fi support. You will be able to download previous Nintendo console games as well. The graphics aren't as powerful as the other consoles, but they're making up for it with "innovation."


...there's a very brief summary. Actually it's mostly just pictures, but meh. But I still don't know which one I plan to get. I have plenty of time, I'm not going to buy which ever one I choose the day it comes out anyway. It's much too early to make a final decision, but I'm leaning to the PS3 first, the Revolution(if that is it's real name) second.

Things that will influence my decision are:
Capabilities
PS3 will be the most graphically impressive. Xbox 360 and Revolution will have WiFi features, Revolution can play the old games, etc. I'd like something that doubles as a DVD and CD reader.
Game Franchises
I really like the Metal Gear games, but PS3 has alot of sports games, which I'm not really into. Nintendo has various good franchises you all must know of, but Nintendo tried that "innovation" shit on the DS, and I regret buying that piece of trash. Xbox, I'm not really into any of those games.
Sex-appeal
The Xbox-360 is my favorite design, followed by PS3.



umm that's all I can think of at the moment. I want to know what others are thinking and considering though, so post it up. Post some info too, I'm un-educated.

Computer games don't affect kids. I mean, if Pac-Man had affected us as kids, we would all be running around darkened rooms, munching magic pills, and listening to repetitive electronic music.

Wow seriously? That's incredible. Unfortuneately we can't watch the preview anymore because it's been pulled from all sites. If anybody has it downloaded, I'd appreciate it if you sent it to me.

Good god the background in that golf screenshot is fuckin gorgeous..

Revolution I think is the best looking system aesthetically but that's about all it has going for it. PS3 looks pretty good but I am 75% sure that my next-gen system is gonna be Xbox 360..I mean daaaaamn

A new analyst report has claimed the PS3 will have a launch price of $499. The price is compiled from reports that PS3 will be similar to the (IMHO) failed PSX unit - currently only available in Japan. With DVR capabilities, DVD writer and a bunch of other crap thrown in for free, we expect Xbox360 to make some serious inroads into the Sony Camp.



Gamedailybiz writes the Xbox 360 will ship for $299, just like the original Xbox console. They got told by Microsoft at E3 2005 that the Xbox 360 will feature backward compatibility, but only for top-selling games. However, today some more details are unveiled and it appears that probably most Xbox games will run on the upcoming Xbox 360.


360 is cheaper, more powerfull and comes out first. GIVE ME Xbox 360.

That's my plan at the moment, could change in the time between now and the PS3 launch. PS3 has the cell processor, which is 10X faster than any other processor, and can do up to 4 calculations at 1 time. For example, one part could calculate graphics, another could perform a phycics calculation, another could render an explosion...

Also, if you want to get into tech terms that I don't understand,
Xbox 360 = 500mhz, 1 teraflop
PS3 = 550 mhz, 1.8 TFLOPS

So the PS3 won't lag, and it will have better graphics, which doesn't even matter unless you're a graphics whore.
