    Being there is a ton of news going on lately with the next gen consoles and whatnot I think we should have a general video game thread where we can post news. We can also use this to spew our fanboyism/opinions/recommendations/reviews and other good stuff.

    I'll start things off:

    Anyone see the impact this will make on the 360 if any at all?

    Doesn't EA license all its games to 360 anyway?

    PS2 compatibility is up to 88% on the PS3 now using the emulation software which will be used in the new 80gb system and currently in the European system...

    still have yet to be really "wowed" by xbox and ps3, it feels like they either havent tapped into the system much or alot of it was hype....

    European software can't be used in the U.S. versions of the games. It is the same story with the 360. Some games with a working pal version do not work with ntsc games and some ntsc games work but the pal version does not.

    I know this. I was saying that the European version of the PS3 got the software version of the PS1/PS2 playback while the US got the hardware version...

    Edit: Also, aren't the new consoles region free? I thought I read that somewhere...

    I dunno, but I would say the $1B dollars had something to do with it...

    My point is that 88% on the European console does not mean 88% when the new version launches. I think region free only applies to new games, and the older titles still have it.

    From what I understood, the 88% was for all NTSC and PAL games. They didn't say specific to Europe...

    The 360 is the namesake of this generation of gaming. The PS3 currently is not. The games on PS3 aren't hyped enough, and they're just mediocre. Halo 3, Gears of War, those are games that will define this generation of gaming. Like Super Nintendo/Genesis, Nintendo 64, and PS1/2 (GTA1/2/3 was the epitome of gaming from 2001-2004), to even hint at the 360 being a failure is pathetic. I hope the PS3 becomes as successful in the fact that a gaming machine brings me entertainment, because I was bored of Resistance: Fall of Man in about 25 minutes.
