Recap of Console Wars 05/06

[b]Xbox 360:[/b] Pretty sweet machine spec-wise. '45-pipelines' but those pipe lines are shared, not dedicated, so what does that mean, and what the hell are pipe lines? [b]PS3:[/b] Oh My Friggin' God spec-wise. 'Untested/Cutting Edge' "Cell" processor technology. Hopefully it will not be like the J.Lo flick [i]The Cell[/i] (Silence of the Lambs on LSD). [b]Revolution:[/b] "2 or 3 times more powerful than the GameCube." Yawn. [b]Xbox 360:[/b] Some consider it ugly, like a PC power on the the Clarissa Lockhart diet . Key design element the 'inhale look.' Considering all the 420s and Chronics that I see in gamertags, Microsoft knows their market. [b]PS3:[/b] Might be mistaken for a George Forman Grill. Considering the waist lines of most gamers, Sony knows their market. [b]Revolution:[/b] Looks like an external CD burner.* Supposedly just a prototype. Will get smaller. Well, that's something. [b]Xbox 360:[/b] 100% HDTV support for each and every game. [b]PS3:[/b] Supports HDTV hardcore. Supports 2 widescreen HDTVs at once. That is so sweet and so not going to fly with my gal. ("But if I don't buy $4000 worth of televisions and take up half the room with it, it's all going to waste! [b]Revolution:[/b] ? [b]Xbox 360:[/b] Stickin' with the standard DVD. 64mg game cards (does anyone actually use theirs anymore?). Built in 20GB removable harddrive. [b]PS3:[/b] Going with the Blu-ray (6X the storage as the standard DVDs). It will also support CR-ROM, CD-RW, DVD, DVD-ROM, DVD-R, DVD+R formats. Memory Stick Duo, an SD slot, and a compact flash memory slot. It will also sport a slot for a detachable 2.5-inch HDD, somewhat similar to the Xbox 360's. Sony did not mention if the drive would be standard. [b]Revolution:[/b] Going to DVDs finally. Will still read those Cube discs. [b]Xbox 360:[/b] Supports 4 wireless controllers. Controllers look like the Xbox S controller that got it on with a PS2 controller. White so will look dirty after an hour of game play. Wash your hands. [b]PS3:[/b] Supports 7 bluetooth controllers. Why 7? Why not 6 or 8? Controllers look like the PS2 controller that got it on with a Xbox 360 controller and a boomerang. Can be used as weapon... or vibrator with those tapered ends. (MuliTplayeR!!!) It can also talk to your PSP, so you can use it as a controller or as a map screen or who knows what people will do with it. [b]Revolution:[/b] No word. Supposedly wireless. Rumors that they are breaking the mold of what controller can be. If the DS or CongaDrums or GameGlove is any indication, it will be cute and innovative and borderline useless. You will probably use your tongue and it will deliver taste. What does Samus taste like? [b]Xbox 360:[/b] All about customization and online. XboxLive, XboxLive, XboxLive. [b]PS3:[/b] All about power. Does have built in ethernet AND wifi (unlike the 360). Little word of Sony's online plans. [b]Revolution:[/b] All about ease of use and playability. Far as I can tell this means it's wifi so it can talk to you DS and can play NES games. Hopefully they will change the name from Revolution to Nostalgia. [b]Xbox 360:[/b] For al the talk I haven't seen all that much of the games. Perfect Dark Zero is what everyone is talking about. Except for the MTV craptacular, I've seen little of PDZ and what I saw wasn't all that mindblowing. Final Fantasy XI finally gets the online support it deserves, but it's also a port of a PS2/PC game. Halo 3 in the spring. Halo 3, Halo 3, Halo 3. Backwards compatible so can play Halo 2 on it. Use old Xbox as anchor when trolling. [b]PS3:[/b] Kickass demos, but hard to say how many of them actually showed gameplay. Killzone 2. If that is any semblance of the game play...OMG. Final Fantasy VII tech demo. As Square finally run out of FF games and are just going to make remakes from now on? Backwards compatible for PS2 and PS1. Can play Pappa Da Rappa. Old PS2 can now go in the pile with all those broken PS2s you've got. [b]Revolution:[/b] Seen nothing or maybe we have. Who know? But, hey, you'll be able to download Super Mario Bros. onto it.
