|1: Playstation 3, despite being put side-to-side with the 360, is still a better looking system graphics wise and it looks better aesthetically, despite having physical qualities of a printer.
While the current crop of games out now for the 360 and PS3 pretty much look to be on the same level, remember that the 360 came out a whole year before the PS3 and had a chance to work out its (graphical) kinks. But when people play games like Heavenly Sword and see how seamless it is compared to the sometimes choppy Gears (Come on now, you know multi-playerâ€™s frame rate sometimes falls apart), theyâ€™re going to be converted in the worst kind of way.
2: Blu-Ray will eventually prevail
With Blockbusterâ€™s decision to only support Blu-Ray instead of HD DVD, thatâ€™s only the first blow to hit Microsoftâ€™s chosen format, as down the line I predict Blu-Ray will eventually prevail. This prediction is of course not backed by anything substantial, really, other than the comments I hear in the mall, at the Gamestop, and on the line (thatâ€™s internet, boy). And everybody knows the internet never lies.
3. Christmas 2007
Sonyâ€™s next line-up of games will certainly bring more to the table than Resistance: Fall of Man. And with games like MGS4, Heavenly Sword, GTA 4 (Though, not exclusive) and scads others (Like, Lair) coming to the system soon, it wonâ€™t be long until the Sony fanboys come back from out of their little cupboards and stand up tall proclaiming, â€œSee, I told you theyâ€™d return! I TOLD YOU!â€ And with the recent price drop, that declaration canâ€™t be too far off.
4. People will eventually tire of the Wii
The clear cut winner in the next-gen wars so far is bound to be discovered for what it is soonâ€”a minigame pumping, fad machine. And once kids start getting the drift (I think adults already have, what with their hands probably already tired of swinging around a master sword since no other worthwhile games have come out for it since launch), theyâ€™ll start tugging on their momâ€™s dress for what Sony has to offer. And Iâ€™m looking forward to that day.
5. God of War 3
I mean, seriously, what other console is it going to come out for? If I have to buy a PS3 just to play it, believe me, I will. And so will you.
