Comments on: E3 - part 1 http://www.iamkevin.com/journal/?p=340 i am kevin, not you. unless you are also kevin.

I guess we'll see in a few years who wins out. I think right now I'd put my money on MS. I wouldn't be surprised if Nintendo did really really well, either. Nintendo has been able to do well with technologically inferior products before. DS has crushed the PSP because the games are just way more fun. I wouldn't really blame Sony for putting stupid labels like "emotion engine" on their products. That's just stupid stuff filtering down from marketing departments, and almost every company does it. I wouldn't be surprised if it works. How are you enjoying your Pentium with MMX TECHNOLOGY? Don't get me wrong, I'm not really defending them. I think Sony is really retarded. They could have easily won this generation just on brand-name alone. Instead they come out with overpriced system that no one can afford. Also, I want part 2!

Tue, 16 May 2006 15:22:38 +0000 http://www.iamkevin.com/journal/?p=340#comment-383 I'm not talking about Sony as a company, just their games division. The stuff like the rootkit give sony bad publicity, but that's handled by another division. Their movie studios aren't involved in making games either. The only connection the PS3 has with the rest of the company is the heavy bet on Blu-Ray. Sony lied with the PS2 (and killed the Dreamcast), talking about toy story graphics rendered in game, and other such bullshit like their "Emotion engine." Now they have the "RSX" or whatever in the PS3, and the magical Cell processor. I know last year was just a prototype, but why tell people you're putting in 2 HDMI ports when you clearly have no intention of doing it because it is stupid and overpriced? That's just spreading Fear Uncertainty and Doubt with no factual backup. I think the Xbox 360 is just definitely expensive, but it's not out of the ordinary. New consoles have cost $250-$300 for 10 years, the 360 bumped it up to $400 (for the non-retarded system). Sony is getting out of control and taking it up another $100-$200. It's just not smart.

Kevin you're absolutely right and I think you should come out and say it. What Sony released isn't going to cut it and without either a tax break (is it a hybrid?) or funtionality that will legitimize the expense the PS3 is too expensive and (if and when it comes out) too late. Too expensive shrinks your market, too late gives your competitors time to steal the market. Either way in the end you have fewer titles and that means... game over. If it weren't for Nintendo pushing a console that may revolutionize (or is it now wii-ize) the industry I'd be ready to crown the xbox as king of the next-gen-console. The question still remains, however has the whole industry gotten too big for the expense. With losses springing up all over the place does the winner really get somthing worth having or merely name recognition for the next fight? Furthermore, the high consumer cost of the machines is opening a huge door for anyone that would like to make a box that may please someone other than the gammer in the household.

If Nintendo doesn't come out with a reasonable price point, I'm not buying any of these systems for quite a while. I don't really follow these things that closely, so I don't know what Sony "promised" last year. But given that you said they showed a "prototype", doesn't it imply that their specifications weren't set? Sure, it's a let-down, but I don't think they're really lying. Anyway, Microsoft isn't exactly great at keeping promises. How many of Windows Vista's promised features have now slipped out of the release?
