    Hopefully this will be stickied.

    If you have a "fanboy" argument. Stick it here. Otherwise, please refrain from posting <angrytypingguy>THIS IS WHY THE ____ IS SUCH A SUCKY SYSTEM etc etc</angrytypingguy> when it has nothing to do with a thread.


    :)

    I'll go ahead and add my two cents.

    I'm an Xbox person. The controller is comfortable, the multiplayer is great, and the exclusives seem to be better than the other systems, although I haven't really checked out the Wii.

    I'll never own a Wii. I need mind blowing graphics and realism in my games.

    PS3 looks like it has potential, but people are saying that programmers have a really tough time with the system and that the 360 is just plain easier to make great games for. Blu Ray? Fuck that. Might hold more info, but remember the beta tapes? Those were supposedly better than VHS but they didn't last long. And, I hate the PS3 controller. I might get a PS3 eventually though, because LittleBigPlanet looks really fun.

    PC is better for FPS play than consoles, agreed, but I like consoles a little better. It's cheaper to get a console than to keep upgrading a PC every year for the better graphics. I do play plenty of games on the PC though, and will be buying a new machine when Spore comes out :p


    Anyway...

    have at it, fanboys :fight6:

    Im a Sony guy. I do own a Wii but its really only fun for me when we have a house full of people over and we are bowling for money. I havent found any other Wii game than the free one that came with it that i want to play. The PS3 is loaded with hope but havent really played anything on it yet that has totally blown me away. Ive thought about getting a 360 but have really never dug the controller. All that being said no real fanboy fights from me ill play any system that has a game on it that I want to play. My love hate relationship with Socom keeps me a Sony guy.

    At heart I am a Nintendo fanboy. I love to play video games and nintendo has been pretty consistent on releasing great games on their systems. I had a PS2 but the fucking system always broke and the Xbox had shitty controllers. I do like the 360 even though most of the games for it are not my cup of tea, Halo sucks goat ass, why is it so popular?

    I think you say it sucks goat ass because it's so popular :p

    I loved Halo. Halo 2 was not as great, but Halo 3 should live up to the hype. The beta was really fun. Although I do still wish there were a way to get rid of the 12 year olds who call you a "noob" when you kill them.

    Xbox controller shitty? Come on, sir. They fit naturally into your hands, unlike PS controllers where your thumbs are in a lower awkward position. The Xbox controllers were modeled after the Dreamcast controller, which is probably the most comfortable controller since the SNES.

    I don't hate it because it is popular, I hate it because it is not fun to play. There are so many better FPS out there that Halo wishes it could be that good(Half Life 2).

    Atari Circus kicked Space Invaders ass royally. There isn't a better drunk game out there. Ooh, you can dodge alien urine? Well try catching a fast moving clown! Nothing better than getting him caught in the baloons.

    Funny you mention that. I'm a Beta fanboy. Beta is the only format thing Sony's done that hasn't failed miserably. BetaMax players may have, but for videography, BetaSP is still the industry standard after nearly 30 years.

    As for consoles. I'm all for Xbox. I have a Wii, too, and it's fun but I don't really play it all that often since I beat Zelda.

    I fucking HATE the PS3. My cousin got one, and I can't think of one good thing to say about it. I guess if graphics are a selling point for someone, then perhaps a PS3 would be a great investment.

    I just don't think I'd drop 600 bucks for good graphics but shitty controls, no titles, etc.

    Oh, and Sony can shove Blu-Ray straight up it's ass. It's not going to catch on. It's going to be the Sony Minidisc of the 2000s

    Sony/Super NES/PC FPS fanboy here. XBOX controllers suck ass, Halo is overrated next to the Battlefield series and sucks ass with no keyboard and mouse. Never had a problem with Sony products, can't say the same for Microsoft. That's all.

    I'm a PC fanboy, as well as a DS fanboy since I got one last year and enjoy it very much.
    I'd be a 360 fanboy if I could afford the damn system, all my friends have one which only makes me want one even more since I get a taste of one every now and again.
    If I didn't have a pesky tumor along with a mountain of medical bills, I'd have a 360 right now.

    Anyone wanna set up a donation thing to get me a 360? :haha7: (maybe it should be for the medical bills, but fuck it! I wanna play!)
