The games were just bigger and better. The multiplayer was bigger and better. The only thing the PS2 had in its favour was a bigger games library, and Sony were already established at the top of the console market. Same thing Sony are sticking with now. Nothing against the PS2, I still have one, but Microsoft have been better every generation so far and will probably be better again. I'll probably buy a PS4 at some point for the exclusives but Xbox has better exclusives and I'll take XBL over PSN any day.


Obviously this chart is a bit out of date because of the recent changes, but it still gives a nice comparison. Also, one thing to consider as well: there are rumors flying around that the Xbox One is actually underclocked at the moment, so has less computing power than the specs would suggest.

As for everything else you said, it's all subjective really. For me the original Xbox didn't even exist, I was a PS2 gal through and through and while the Xbox was more powerful, it just didn't have the games. The Xbox 360 did have some good exclusives, yes, but the only ones that really mattered were Gears and Halo. Oh and I went with a 360 this gen, but that was only because it was cheaper. I lost out on a few exclusives that I really wanted to play because of this, and tbh I should have just waited and gotten a PS3.

Just got Crash Bandicoot on the PS3.

I fucking love the backwards compatibility of this machine.

Found myself playing Quake a lot over the past week.

Not enough hours in a day.

Warhammer 40k MMO announced.

http://m.uk.ign.com/articles/2013/06/25 ... -announced

I shall keep an eye on this, but if they make it just another hack & slash, end game raid game I think I shall ignore it. The 40k world deserves so much more than a game I'd be bored of inside a month.

With as little experience of the 40k universe as I have, I think that will be a first day purchase. The space marine game got me quite interested in it, so I'll be able to enjoy this game as it will mostly be new to me but also interesting and hopefully fun.

While I'm a massive 40k nerd, I'm not that exited by the idea of this game.

Traded some stuff in today and got gears of war judgement and fuse. Not a fan of gears of war multiplayer but I have enjoyed the campaigns. Enjoyed the fuse demo, might end up seeing if there's anyone on playfire to do co-op with since it seems the game is meant for 4 players. Actually spent most of the night playing Spartacus legends, which is a badass free to play game based on the Spartacus series. Can be quite hard, but good fun.

EDIT: No matter how good I think im getting at typing on my tablet, it alwaysn gets me :lol:

Fuse is that game that sold *really* badly isn't it, because they changed it to try to appeal to a younger hip audience but failed somehow. You might not find others online :p

I didn't like the sword and shield style, but I have a two handed sword gladiator now and I'm enjoying that more :yes:

The lack of fatalities annoys me considering the TV series. Or do you have to play for ages to get them?
