anywayz ... what happened to FFX13 lol.
... went way off topic, especially when talking about SPECS of diff consoles so i stopped reading majority of them.
the debate on console topic will never end coz everyone is BIASED no matter wat.
but as i said before, as long as it sticks on the ps3 im fine with it going cross console, its when stuff starts going exclusively to consoles where they do not belong that it starts getting me mad.
it's like how would 360 owners like it if Halo 4 (if there ever is one) was exclusively for the ps3, i'd bet they would be as po'ed as the jrpg fans.
In what way?
before the xbox came along developers only had 2 major consoles to develop for; ps2 and game cube.
rpgs games almost always ended up on the ps2, fps' as well were a majority of the catalog while the Gamecube was mainly a mix of fps and action adventure games.
but then we added in the xbox in 2001 or 2002 ment that now developers had a new system to work on. Now, most of the games released last gen were cross console, but some were not.
a general pecking order was established as far as what consumers playing on an xbox would play, which is mainly fps' and a few fighting games.
so, fast forward to now. developers think that since the xbox has had no rpgs and that the ps seires has had next to no fps games that they should flood the two with those kind of games.
and all I am saying is that its going to back fire, ps2 owners want rpgs for the ps3, xbox fans want fps' and maybe rpgs on the 360, its all screwed up, even more so with MS dishing out the dough to make games xbox exclusive that should have been released on the ps3/2 in the first place.
And where does it "need" to be? It's losing fair and square; what right does PS3 have to win if it can't earn it in fair competition?
partially answered above.
the ps series have been rpg juggernaughts since their inseption. Final Fantasy, some of the Tales games, legend of legaia, legend of dragoon, chrono cross, digital devil saga, magna carta, shadow hearts, and about 400 other rpgs that I wont go into.
that is where the ps3's butter zone is, its not because it cant compete, it's that there are outside influences other then supply and demand that are holding it back.
As was said earlier in the topic, as each game comes out, developers will get better and accessing the graphics power of the ps3 or the wii or the 360, but if certain companies are snatching games that could push the envolope on the ps3 away from the ps3, thats never going to happen.
