Console War Friday #1

Posted by Gloqwi Friday, April 4, 2008


This will seem worse than you think.

First off, Sony's side: The PS3.

--Dualshock 3. Contains long awaited rumble but keeps the (sometimes terrible) motion functionality of the Six-Axis controller. Since this feature should have been here LONG ago, this only scores the PS3 a 3/5(minus one for coming soon). (2/5)
--Metal Gear Solid 4 Beta. Something that I'm dying to need but only lasting for o so long. Available to download on April 17, this Beta will feature the multi player aspects of the game and will last from April 21 to May 5. 5/5(minus one for coming soon). (4/5)
--Warhawk's 2nd Expansion pack. 4/5(minus one for coming soon) (3/5)
--No DLC on the Store this week. Minus one.
--Home planned to come out this April. 4/5(minus one for coming soon) (3/5)(Just to add a note that this is something I am personally excited for.)


Now, Microsoft's side: The Xbox 360.

--Halo 3 Heroic DLC turns free. 3/5.
--CoD4 Map pack released. Contains Chinatown, Killhouse, Broadcast, and Creek. 5/5.
--Forge filters. Seem to be awesomes, but since this doesn't seem as big the PS3 news, this only gets a 2/5(minus one for coming soon). 1/5
--Lag issues for Xbox Live(Didi knows about this for RSV2). Sadly a minus one.


For now, there is only a war between X360 and PS3, no Wii. As I think I have to be responsible for this(since it's kinda obvious of who's defending who(Didi X360, Savage PS3)), I will be focusing on the Wii for just a little bit. If nothing happens next week, I switch back to these two.


Current Scores:

PS3: 11.
X360: 8.



I am also surprised. I am also surprised.

The wars end tomorrow night at 8:30/C. So please comment and tell me something of importance I have missed and I will rate it's importance. I will also accept any reasons to boost any of these reason's scores. So comment NOW!

[UPDATE-As of 12:51 PM] Halo 3 Legendary Map Pack announcement trailer, pack coming out the 15th. 5/5 (minus one for coming soon) (4/5) For XBOX 360

Updated scores:
PS3: 11
X360: 12


It is getting very close!!! And please post reasonable reasons. This won't end until tonight!

  4. I love how the person that said PS3 rocks put it as an anonymous comment. Well your wrong! Xbox 360 had the BEST WEEK without a doubt, and just let me explain. 3 amazing trailers were released this week. Saints Row 2(awesome 360 game), Mercanaries 2(that game that was announced a long time ago), and the Legendary Map-Pack for Halo 3(2 old maps redesigned and 1 new map). Oh and I forgot mention, Microsoft is so rich they give away free stuff on marketplace. GTA gamer pictures were free this week and the Army of Two demo came out this week. What more could you ask for. And Alex if you can't take the heat STAY OUT OF THE KITCHEN!

  6. It is either Savage or another person with A as their first initial(I am not disclosing any names). Which one? If this is the guy who commented on I Hate Kaillif, then yeah, it's definetly another person with A as their initial(Still not disclosing any names).

    Oh and by the way Didi, Halo 3 did not sell that well, I told you that before, so that's why their DLC ACTUALLY COSTS MONEY. If they made good money, then they would be releasing those packs for free.

  8. If they made Xbox Live free and the consoles just a little cheaper, they would have already won the console wars. This is my dreamplan:

    Sony merges together: The technology
    Microsoft merges together: The features and gameplay
    Nintendo merges together: The innovation.

    Yeah, I said it. Nintendo innovates. If Microsoft merged with any of the companies to make a console, they will DOMINATE!!!!

    But the gaming world is seperate, and sadly always will be.
