great. now I need $600 for a PS3.

anybody wanna buy a PS2?? or some records?
Posted: Jun 28, 2007 6:30 pm
I can't afford one too actually I can't affort a xbox neither.
Xbox would be cheaper but I'm used to Playstation so I don't wanna switch consoles. Apart from having no money at all, the xbox exclusive downloadable content for GTA IV and the fact that LA Noire will be PS3 exclusive isn't making my decision easier.

I'll trump your call for nerds. For the SUPERNERD, check out Trailer #1 with the Koyaanisqatsi/Phillip Glass ref.
Posted: Jun 28, 2007 8:19 pm
Good call, forgot to mention it.Heres the amazing original URL

XBox 360 is 200 bucks cheaper than the PS3 and is getting a ton of exclusive content. M$oft shelled out 50 mil for exclusive downloadable IV content. Srsly! I'm sure all the systems (except Wii) will price drop after the holiday frenzy.
Posted: Jun 28, 2007 9:26 pm
Fuckit! I'll get whatever's cheaper cause I just want to be able to play this game. I've always relied on roomates' systems up till this point, but now it's time to bite the bullet and get my own system, as I no longer live with geeks.

Me too. Actually the prices for the PS3 should drop right now- here it's the worst selling of all consoles. About 10 games have been released yet and all of them are crap and definitely no 3rd generation games. Sony is even lieing about the sales in Europe.
Financially xbox sure is more realistic for me but I'm concerned that I buy one and two years later a new xbox comes out.I also have the naive hope that the exclusive content will be available a year later for the PS3.I used to know an otaku like Übernerd who I usually avoid but I'll have to meet him in October so he can explain to me the pros and cons of both consoles.In the meantime: URL

I think PS3 is a better long term purchase because it plays blu-ray discs, plus the back catalog of PS2 games is better than xbox. I guess that's only a factor if you don't already have a PS2... but I think the extra $$ is well worth it, at least for me.

I own 2 playstations and one playstation2- I haven't bought any of them.I'm not even a big gamer.The only games I play are Resident Evil and GTA. I've never concerned spending money on a console but as you I don't have nerdish friends anymore who give away expensive consoles just because something new came out.

That and LA Noire are the only rational arguments I've got apart from "Fuck Microsoft".Mabey I'll buy the console that gets cracked first, whatever it will be, it will mean 2 or 3 years of paying rates but fuck that.

This looks crazy!!! Maybe SOMEday I'll be able to afford a PS3...

PS. I thought Bully was more fun than any of the GTAs so far!!!
Posted: Jun 29, 2007 4:29 am
Xbox will also have Halo 3, which is a pretty strong argument in its favour.
Posted: Jul 16, 2007 11:04 am
Worth reading, the game will be amazing.
Posted: Jul 16, 2007 7:27 pm
As of a few days ago, PS3 prices just dropped by $100 across the u.s.

Not in Europe. They'll keep the price but add motorstorm and another game I don't care about.
Posted: Jul 17, 2007 12:04 am
Bully fucking RULED. There's apparently a next gen (PS3/XB360) sequel in the works.

I think this GTA 4 is gonna blow minds though.

This is just a temporary move to clear out old inventory of the now discontinued 60 gb model. Once those are sold out, you'll only be able to get the new (i.e. sans the emotion chip) 80 gb model back up to the original $600 price.

Take it from this SUPER videogame nerd, the Xbox 360 is the only way to go. I don't like Micro$oft as much as the next guy, but they have far and away the superior system this generation.

The only reason I might be able to justify the purchase of a PS3 is if you are a huge movie dude and just want a cheap Blu-Ray player. Even then, HD-DVD's will win the format wars due to the simple fact that the pornography industry and Wal-mart are supporting this format. Plus they're already manufacturing dual disk (Blu-Ray and HD-DVD) stand-alone players that'll be dirt cheap in 2 years.

Some more bad-ass looking games that I can't wait to play, besides GTA IV:

Mass Effect (Check out the 4th video from the top)

Creepy 50's noir underwater city where you kill bloodsucking little girls by mutating yourself. Flash based site, so you've got to dig a bit for the videos.

The second one looks cool. Is it like Resident Evil or is it just a shooter?
Posted: Jul 17, 2007 6:16 pm
Heyradio is right. If you really want a PS3, get one while they're clearing out that 60gb model @ 500 bucks. Especially if you're interested in the backwards compatability, as the subsequent models will use software emulation instead of an actual onboard chip. Eventually the 80gb will drop to 500 (for clearance) when they're ready to introduce another model at the 600 dollar pricepoint.
Posted: Jul 17, 2007 6:16 pm
Bioshock and Mass Effect are gonna be soooo great. I'm stoked about having a 360.

Bioshock is a first person shooter, but it's thick with creepy ambience (dilapidated Art Deco in an underwater city) and it's got this crazy Ayn Rand utopia gone horribly wrong storyline. You jam syringes into your arm to modify your genetic structure. It's super fucked up & dark.

Mass Effect is a large scale space RPG that borrows heavily from '70 scifi movies like Logan's Run, THX 1138, etc... Even the soundtrack is this crazy Vangelis sounding shit. It looks totally fucking incredible.

Heyradio - what's your gamertag?
Posted: Jul 17, 2007 7:17 pm
My gamertag is "crackilator."

This just in: GTA 4 is officially delayed until "April 2008 at the earliest". Bad news for some - good news if you're waiting for the prices on these fucking consoles to drop, as I'm betting they will (again) after the holidays, Q1 2008.
Posted: Aug 3, 2007 12:46 am
Yeah, I share the latter opinion, given that either way I'll be hooked for a few weeks

Me too! Gamerscore: 95

I know, I'm a fucking badass.
Posted: Aug 4, 2007 1:59 am
The Xbox 360 is getting a price drop next week.

Posted: Aug 8, 2007 2:18 pm
Fuck! My birthday is in late september- I planned on getting a console and the game as a present to myself now I get autumn depression without distraction.Have any official staments been made yet? All I read about are speculations that it's delayed because they got troubles with the Ps3.
Posted: Aug 8, 2007 8:20 pm
Nope - it's officially delayed until 2nd fiscal quarter 2008, which could be april-june. The 360 just price dropped, as did the ps3. Expect another drop before GTA4 releases.

Good news!

Amazon still has the PS3 gta release scheduled for Oct. 16th 07.

However, the Xbox gta release has been pushed to 2008.

Here's the link:

All iterations of GTA IV have been pushed back.

Official date.
Posted: Aug 14, 2007 9:32 am
Your right. March 2008.

Games Digest has a new article called GTA IV Delayed and it's filled with six conspiracy theories of why they think GTA IV was really delayed. Here are the theories, if you want to see the reasoning then click the link.

Theory 1. Rockstar didn't want GTA IV to be overshadowed by Halo 3
Theory 2. Rockstar is struggling with the PS3's Cell processor
Theory 3. GTA IV Wii version now in the making
Theory 4. Sony bribed Rockstar to delay GTA IV
Theory 5. GTA IV was always going to be late and was only slated for this financial year to keep Take 2 afloat (Herb Greenberg agrees with this one)
Theory 6. Rockstar can't fit the game onto a DVD
Posted: Aug 14, 2007 9:32 am
that info is from:

Posted: Aug 14, 2007 7:13 pm
My theory; Theory 7. All of the above.
Posted: Aug 15, 2007 12:09 am
I'm inclined to agree with theories 2 and 5.

How fucking NERDY is this conversation? Jesus!
Posted: Aug 15, 2007 12:28 am
Apparently Take Two borrowed 100million dollars at a terrible rate to keep the company afloat till the game came out next year. These guys have been investigated twice by the SEC and are constantly in financial trouble. It has always baffeld me how the company that makes the number one video game in the world can't keep the lights on in between games. However, I have often wondered if this is a specific strategy to drive the stock price down , by a bunch of it, release the game, and sell off some shares after it shoots up after the release. There stock always goes up after first quarter sales....

In this case I guess they're releasing it in the 2nd quarter. Most likely on a tuesday. Like they always have....

Oh, that Bioshock game I mentioned in an earlier post is officially the highest rated game of all time and, after playing the demo around 15 times, I believe it.

Need to start sellin my ass so I can get this thing in March.....
Posted: Jan 4, 2008 1:29 am
I finally broke down and bought a PS3.

Now I can unequivocally, without a doubt, say this for certain - get an Xbox 360.
It's not even close how superior it is to the PS3.

And I wouldn't set March in stone just yet. I'm counting on AT LEAST one more push-back.
Posted: Jan 4, 2008 1:51 am
Really? Did you get a 60 gig or an 80 gig?
Posted: Jan 4, 2008 8:43 am
An 80 gig. I had a Best Buy gift card and they've been long out of the old 60 gig versions.
