TBH Giga I was a bit surprised Sony were making this announcement when the 3 has been just getting in to it,s stride.
Now that it,s come I have to say I am impressed.
Not because the games that were shown were really that big of a leap and I would have thought the 3 would have been maybe capable of running some of them anyway.
What has impressed me is Sonys turn around this gen and how they are now setting the standard for the next one.
MS started off so well with the 360 and kept it going for a long time but little by little they just seemed to let it drop gradually and steadily.
There first party titles just kept getting less and less whilst Sony were doing the opposite and yet we kept hearing about the attach rate been so much better on the 360.
I know it is early days yet and I am no expert and indeed have been accused more than once on this site of been a MS fanboy.
I always denied it and still stand over most of my comments from back then but you have to admire what Sony have been doing this gen regardless.
You see it doesnt really matter how well you start a race or indeed how well you are doing midway through the race what really only matters is how you finish the race as that is what people remember.
I unsubscribed from live 18 montha ago and joined plus and have never looked back.
I still play games on the 360 but seem to spend much much more time on the PS3 these days.
I never would have thought it would be like that 2 years ago.
So like I said in another thread on the Wiiu a few days ago.
IT,S ALL ABOUT THE GAMES.....
I await in anticaption for the MS reveal but they seem to have let a lot slip away from them in the last 18 months that they may need to get back to the drawing board on this one as just saying the live aspect is way superior is not good enough any more.
I said many times that Sony had let the ball slip with the 3 but they stuck with it and it now appears to be bearing fruit for them.
I would like if there was some sort of bc with ps3 games as the crossover period will be the toughest part imo as the 3 has lots of good games still coming out.
Interesting times ahead.
Edit: oops forgot to scale it.
