272w ago - Are you an XBox 360 person, or do you believe in the PS3? Can't make up your mind as to which console is better?
Well, we've been trying to keep everyone up to date on the latest in the console wars. But still, sometimes it's not enough.
This video shows a comparison of some of the better exclusive games each console has (or will have soon). That way, you can make an informed decision as to which console is better. Or just use the video to further your argument.
273w ago - Three key devs behind Nintendo's Metroid Prime series have formed a new studio called Armature, under the publishing flag of Electronic Arts.
What does that mean for us gamers, exactly? It means the prime (hah) talents behind Metroid are now free to develop games for non-Nintendo platforms.
The devs heading Armature Studios - Mark Pacini, Todd Keller and Jack Matthews, (who were the former Game Director, Art Director, and Principal Tech Engineer of the Metroid franchise, respectively) - have expressed interest in the PS3 and 360. Says Pacini:
From my stand point, I've never worked on any other console. I've always made games for Nintendo. I'm reinvigorated. I'm really excited about what other opportunities are out there. How can we use Xbox Live? How can we use the power of the PS3?
I think it really opens it up. I'm not saying it was by any means restrictive working for Nintendo. We had this palette to work on, the Wii and the DS, but now we have everything.
Personally I'm looking forward to see what they have in store for the Xbox 360 and the PlayStation 3. Not that I don't think the Wii is a capable platform, but it lacks the processing power its competition has. I'd like to see what the devs can do with that extra power.
278w ago - From the beginning of time, Xbox 360 and PS3 gamers have been dueling about who's console is the more graphically powerful. In these skirmishes, terms like CPU, GPU, and RAM have been thrown around, but now those folks on the PS3 side of the fray have another weapon in their arsenal: disc format.
You may think that disc size has absolutely nothing to do with graphical quality of games. It all has to do with the raw power of the console's CPU, RAM, etc., you might say; the discs are just used to store the data that is pushed through the processors. Yes, but no. Let me explain.
The Xbox 360 version of the upcoming first person shooter Rage will be shipping on two DVDs. The PS3 version, however, will fit on one Blu-ray disc. Developer id Software's John Carmack says that the PS3 version of the game will look much better. Why? Because of the limitations of the DVD.
Apparently, the company will be using a "different type of compression" on the Xbox 360 version of the title to keep the game on two discs, so they don't have to pay high royalty costs for a third disc. This "compression" will make Rage on the Xbox 360 graphically inferior to Rage on the PS3
Up until now, there has been very few disadvantages to buying a game that comes on multiple discs. Sure...
288w ago - What happens to those games where they show a short video at E3 that gets everyone excited and then nothing is heard from them again?
Like Duke Nukem and Prey, they've probably had to start over on a different set of technology as the original technology which at the time was mind-blowing no longer cuts it in today's age of High Definition, High Dynamic Range Lighting and more ragdoll physics than you can shake a Gravity Gun at!
4. Alan Wake
This little title was first shown off way back in 2005 at E3. Originally planned for PC, Xbox360 and Playstation 3 until Microsoft secured publishing rights to the title and made it a PC/360 exclusive. The title is from the same brains behind the Max Payne series.
You are Alan Wake a writer who is suffering from insomnia after losing his wife, and I don't mean she died, she vanished. Seriously! He travels to a sleep clinic which is located in Bright Falls, Washington. His insomnia clears. He starts to use his dreams in his books but they become much more. Spooky stuff, Eh?
How It Looks Today
Time has taken it's toll on this beauty. While the lighting and atmosphere looks amazing, the environment looks a little sterile and fails when compared to the likes of Grand Theft Auto 4. The forests look amazing but the same can't...
