Can Sony's PlayStation 3 Console Catch Up to the XBox 360?

500°
288w ago - Microsoft has recently been boasting that it has an 8 million global lead over the PS3, and that the PS3's sales figures aren't dramatically rising.

However, analyst Michael Pachter believes that if they were to price the PS3 at parity with the XBox 360, then sales of the PS3 would eventually exceed the XBox 360 sales and Sony would catch up.

To quote: I expect it this year, as soon as their cost structure permits a cut. My Monday note said April, and that is nothing more than a guess. It could come later, but it seems to me that it must come some time in 2009.

With that said, I think that PS3 will sell well once competitively priced. The company has an insurmountable advantage in Japan, and an overall brand loyalty in Europe. Should they price at parity with Xbox 360 ($299), I think that PS3 sales would exceed 360 sales, and eventually, they could catch up.

At present, it doesn't look like that is happening any time soon, so Sony should be prepared to remain in third place until well after they cut price.
 

Review: Killzone 2 for the PlayStation 3 Console - 9.9/10 Overall

250°
288w ago - MEGamers write: Truth is, all my life I've been an ardent PC gamer that scoffed at inferior FPS experiences on the console. My colleagues always teased me for being a hardcore PC fanatic (fancy name for "fanboy").

It's a given fact that PC gamers are much harder to please in terms of quality or gameplay and hence, console FPS ports are always a disappointment.

Throughout the years, being an extremist that I am, console games like Halo 3 only managed a "hmmmm", while few others like Resistance 2 and Gears of War 2 never went beyond the "meh" factor.

After the recent buzz and hype behind Sony's upcoming FPS, I decided to sit down and spend some quality time with the game and I cannot deny the truth... Killzone 2 has made me a believer!

Killzone 2 sees you take the role of Thomas Sev of the ISA, tasked with a nightmarish war on a planet called "Helgan", home to a populace of pissed off half-humans called "Helghast". For those wondering, Killzone 2 is not merely a shoot-em-up title involving big guns and brutal enemies.

The game's story runs deep and the enemies you're fighting against have a long and sorrowful past of torture and repression. The first thing that becomes apparent when you land on Helgan is the beauty of destruction - A...

Review: Star Ocean: Second Evolution for PlayStation Portable

100°
288w ago - Although Star Ocean: First Departure just came out this past October, Square-Enix has already cranked out a port of its sequel with Star Ocean: Second Evolution.

Gameplay-wise, the two are absolutely identical, so if you just recently played through First Departure, unless you absolutely loved it to death, we recommend giving yourself a little buffer time so you don't get tired of the formula.

Unlike the first Star Ocean though, at the start you get to choose between two distinct characters: Claude, the Earthling from a technologically advanced space-traveling federation, or Rena, the magically-powered country bumpkin from a small town on an undeveloped planet.

While the parts of the story where their paths converge will be pretty much the same regardless of whom you choose (they're both in your party for a good chunk of the game), there are portions that are completely different depending on the character you pick.

For example, Claude and Rena split up at one point to rescue a bunch of children from bandits, and depending on who your main character is, you'll have a different perspective and fight completely different boss battles.

The real-time battles are on the button-mashy side, with auto- or semi-auto targeting only, and attacks mapped to the X button,...
