What the heck is going on with the console war?

345w ago - What's the deal with Microsoft losing the entire first quarter of 2008's hardware sales to the PS3 and Wii while not really seeming to give care? Is it all show (the not caring part) or what?

Maybe I should start taking bets for what Microsoft's "official" reason will be this time. They've already used up "underestimated demand" and "production capacity issues". My money's going on "Who cares about March anyway?! March is a stupid doo-doo month!"

In anticipation of Thursday's official release of the NPD sales numbers, analysts are predicting that Sony outdid Microsoft for March. I'm not sure about you, but I was getting used to seeing Xbox 360 sales as the metric people really watched, while Wii sales were a never-ending fluke we expected to crash at any moment and the PS3 was the little system that (never) could.

When the PS3 outsold the 360 the first time, we all agreed... it was a fluke. Then it happened again, but that was okay since it was sort of a mistake on Microsoft's part combined with another fluke success on Sony's part. Now, we're approaching official confirmation of the third time (in a row no less,) suggesting this is edging toward an actual "trend" with the monthly order of hardware sales repeatedly coming in Wii>PS3>360. Maybe someone...

Has COD4 ruined the FPS genre?

50°
345w ago - Pop Quiz: What should you do if you make a game that breaks records and sets the bar so high that it will take another entire development cycle for game-makers to catch up?

If you're Activision's marketing director David Tyler, you brag your ass off. Speaking of the enormous success of Call of Duty 4, Tyler spoke to trade magazine MCV, including some words that were probably not too well-received at EA or Ubisoft.

"We're pleased to have Call of Duty 4 leading the way in the FPS genre, with recent launches such as Army of Two and Rainbow Six: Vegas 2 failing to inspire," said Tyler.

This is one of those statements you just want to sling a wet banana at, and I would if it weren't so laden with truth, that the Vatican was having it carved into the Sistine Chapel.

While I have marched a little ways into the R6V2 campaign, I can't help but cast a longing glance at my worn-out CoD 4 case. Call of Duty 4 just might have ruined shooters for me for a long time.

Is that a good thing?

I guess it might be, meaning that the gameplay experience that Infinity Ward delivered, literally shattered everything else ever made in its genre, and probably several others. At the same time, I have no doubt that, had there never been a Call of Duty 4, I might...
