most "gamers" (especially us old school lot) will pick Nintendo every time!
While most spotty teenagers who don't know any better will pick the ps3 for some more nondiscript (spelling ) shooter or car chase game. I hate Sony fan boys who say Nintendo is just for kids.
Not entirely true...
I may be 19 and love Sony consoles, but I like Nintendo as well. I like their consoles, but I could never get into Mario, Pokemon or anything like that seriously because of their cuteness (although the gameplay in every one is superb). For example, I love Super Mario Kart as it's highly addictive, but will only play it for around 15 mins or so as I get embarrased very easily!
However, I'm not one of those spotty chavs who play GTA and every EA game ever. The only EA game that is worth any real merit is Burnout 3. Nuff said.
I mostly play old PS1 classics and the likes of Resident Evil, ICO, Jak and Daxter, Gran Turismo, Outrun 2006, Shadow Of The Colossus and many retro compilations on my PS2. Buzz! is also a really good multiplayer game to turn your mates into foes, and the eyetoy is really unique.
The reason why I chose PS3 is because the other two consoles just don't interest me. I like the Wii's controller but it has a stupid name, and as I said before I could never get into Mario etc seriously. Since around 75% of Nintendo's games consist of those, I never bought a Nintendo system after the SNES apart from GBC, GBA and DS (because the GBC and GBA were the only handhelds available, and the DS is very clever in terms of technology). As for the XBox 360, well... I hate Microsoft for one thing! The graphics are not a huge difference from the last generation (I've seen them in action in every GAME store, and they look like PS2 with only slightly higher quality textures and only run slightly faster). Also, only one good game is available for the system, and that is Project Gotham Racing 3. The rest don't really use the machines capabilities, do they?
For PS3 however, I've read about it in OPS2 (there's a 3 page article about it in the latest issue) and it has got me gagging for one already! The games themselves look very promising. Lair is looking awesome at this time... the detail on the dragons is incredible (although I know that gameplay is the most important feature)! I originally thought it was just plain CGI, but I then later found out that it actually used the PS3's graphical capabilities! Seen some video footage of it too.
Apparently (according to OPS2), Sony are also launching PNP (Playstation Network Platform) for the PS3, an online service to rival XBox Live (I will list the features later).
I don't mind the absence of the vibration in the new controller, as the vibration feature didn't really do much for me. As for the hefty price tage, that doesn't bother me either as I'm a rich kid and can afford one quite easily!
Besides, Sony still have plenty of time to sort many things out so you never know, it could all change!
