Right, except more skill is involved in throwing tortillas.

Also, there's more yelling of "FUCK, you just hit me in the eye with a tortilla!"

i just heard that the first revision to the system is already planned. in 6 months, they are changing a bunch of shit. like the gpu will be on the same chip as the cpu etc. this is why i never buy a new console upon its release. you are essentially paying top dollar to beta test the new system.

i think so. to tell you the truth, i dont know too much about the revolution yet, but i can tell you that from what i read, i was afraid that nintendo was counting a little too heavily on that old stuff as a selling point. now, dont get me wrong, i am a retro gamer extraordinare, but the nature of the industry is to move forward. i mean, pong is still pong, even if you can download it instantaneously, and its free. and if there is an online community that is free, well thats just bitchin! microsoft is making dough hand over fist with xbox online. free service could be just what nintendo needs to take the wind out of xboxs sales. but, nintendo is going to need some big titles. if they dont have the games, it will tank. who cares if its free, if all i can play is mario backgammon. but nevertheless, im sticking with my beloved nintendo-chan till the bitter end.

I know what you mean, if it's all going to be Zelda games from the Gameboy days then that's cool, but it's not revoloutionary.But just imagening all their stuff from their N64 being able to DL free, seems like quite a big step to me...

And have you seen their new controller? Wtf is going on there? If that isn't a major step up I don't what is. I'm just hoping that it ends up being a genius move, I can just fore see a lot of people not liking it in reality, when actually it seems like a really bold, significant move forwards. If it works that is.

You gotta love Nintendo though right? I remember seing some promo footage a little while back, and the list of things thay they pioneered was amazing. I'm hoping that these 3 new consoles will all take things significantly far enough forwards, that you won't be loosing out by buying one over another, because it will be horrible if we have a games industry without Nintendo in there in the mix.

That being said, my gut instict is telling me that the PS3 is going to blow the competition away, and become the biggest console to date And this is coming from a guy who never bought a PS2.

And of course, since it takes 2 years to make a game... The really good next-gen looking games, the games that fully exploit the tech of the new system don't hit till like a year and half later anyway. Some people are bitching that the Launch- games don't look next-gen...they never do... for any launch. Just compare early PS-2/XBOX games to the ones they have now. Some of the first XBOX games looked PS-1-ish, but you look at something like SC-Chaos-Theory now, and.. wow. If that had been a launch title back in '01 people would have shit their pants. So yeah, I might just hold off till the games get better.

thats what im saying. a console always reaches its peak a year or two after it comes out. the titles will be better, the system will be cheaper, and consumers will be happier.

i am so on the fence with nintendos new controller. it will either be totally awesome, or else a complete piece of shit. no middle ground i fear. this could be the thing that makes or breaks the revolution. it could be a very bitter end indeed.

I had planned on making it to Best Buy in midtown Manhattan for their big release but I was not able to leave in time to get there in nearly enough time.... Most people there had camped out the night before & I wasn't planning on arriving until early a.m. on the 22nd... My plans got screwed up because I had to meet with a tax attorney 9:00 on the 22nd (he didn't show up...Turned out he was fired the day before)...Blah blah bah....The few stores that I popped into were sold out..... But if they are really coming out with a new revised system in 6 months anyway, I should probablly just wait.... :(

Thanks fro the heads up Brock... :wink:
