The same thing happened with last gen consoles, though. This will continue to happen

take the PS1 and the PS2


on the PS1 it obviously cost a lot less money to develop games as it did on the PS2, but developers were spending as much as they could, and it seemed like a lot. But when the PS2 came around, most developers had no choice. it was do or die, basically.

I'm sure people said the same thing you're saying when the PS2 and XBOX came out... it definitely cost a lot more money, but as technology evolves, it's going to cost a lot more money.

I believe that in time, there will be more and more titles released..

even if you take the Nintendo DS.... when it first came out, there were very few games for it, and it was said that there would never be as much titles that there is today. There's close to 2000. Developers are willing to take chances.

hopefully someone sees what I'm saying??

Default Re: Getting a PS3

60 minutes did a report on a hardware chip inside ps3's that destroys any xbox360 within a 300 foot radius :-P.

Anyways, I think I over simplified my argument. Marketing was one thing, and I'm glad you agree. Xbox360's ad campaigns have been great and simple. They advertise a game, show cutscenes and gameplay, then just throw the xbox360 logo on at the end. A simple, proven method of spreading the word.

But I was also trying to say as you did their inability to secure a ps3 only 'big game' has also been a problem. Ratchet and Clank is too kiddy as I said. But the marketers at sony can just pretend that UTIII will be a ps3 only game, because the 360 version will lag behind by a couple months at least.

I say Sony brings back everyones favorite dingo, with the Crash Bandicoot series. It may have the problem of seeming too kiddish like Ratchet and Clank, but I think that if they do, people will be crazy nostalgic. Many of us remember growing up with this game series. Introduce a new character or two, but keep everything else the same, make it less cartoony then the other games, and add a good story with a sub-plot and they would have a great game. Unfortunuately Naughty Dog sold the rights to crash, so we'll never see another good Crash game. I think Universal has the rights to it now :-/

Nintendo does a real good job, sort of being conservatives in what they produce. Mario has been branded to the Nintendo name ever since it came about, and same with Zelda, Metroid and all the other Nintendo favorites. I can't say that Sony does a bad job at this, but it seems that some of their games, (Crash Bandicoot being a real good example) have lost their flare, especially since the sale.
