Ha Ha Ha... lol Oh Lloyd... Ps3 can't handle Gears 1/2... lol.. Oh give me a minute.... Gears 1/2 was nothing compared to killzone 2..... 20 GB textures in Killzone 2 vs 3-4GB in Gears... What do you have to say about that. PS3 doesn't have 512 MB RAM I agree, but it doesn't need it cause it uses the powerful CELL processor which has 8 cores running at 550MHz as compared to 3 cores running at 500MHz on the 360. 360 is basically a comp where graphics are rendered by the GPU whereas PS3 uses Cell Tech where the GPU and CPU bear the brunt of churning out graphics. Hence PS3 doesn't need a heap of RAM.
PS3 can run Gears 2 without any stress on the CPU. Hell, it won't even require 50 % of PS3's power (Killzone 2 used on 60% so how the hell is gears 2 not playable on PS3?). hell, PS3 can run Gears 1 and 2 simultaneously.
Each game you've mentioned eats dust in front of GOD OF WAR 3 (yes even Halo eats dust).. forget any other game.
Ps3 has a much better exclusive line up this year and in 2010.
Ps3 is better in every other way(apart from price & online) than the 360.. Better features, Blu-Ray, Better upcoming games, better Reliability..... In short, PS3 is a price cut away from kicking 360's A$$.
Hey dumbass do you have color blindness or what? Killzone 2 is the best looking game on a console and it's not coming out of me, but it's coming out of every gaming site on the planet. IGN, gamespot (since you trust metacritic so much... search each review in it and you will see the words 'THE BEST LOOKING GAME ON A CONSOLE'... name whatever site you want all say that KZ2 is the best looking console game. You are quoting an Epic developers word who is working on Gears development. Of course he will ***** about the PS3. Hell, even MGS4 was better looking than Gears 2. The characters in gears 2 looked like plastic figures whereas Killzone 2 they look like real people.
And another fact that Ps3 is more powerful lies in the online aspect aswell. Do you think Gears 2 developers didn't want to incorporate 32 player online or 60 player online in Gears 2? Like the ones in Killzone 2 and Resistance 2? They can't cause 360 cannot render to many things at a time without dropping framerates. PS3 powerful processor does the calculations at twice the speed. MAG (Massive Action Game) is coming out on the PS3 with 256 player online support. A 360 can't even go past 30.
I took up the God Of War 3 name cause all GOW titles are epic. don't stupid 360 fanboys blow Halo out of proportion even before the game has arrived? And please I only compared the graphics of KZ2 and Gears 2. Gears 1/2 are TPS and KZ2 is a FPS. Gears 1/2 have hardly any competition in their department(so it's rated relatively) where as KZ2 matched up to the likes of COD4 and surpassed Halo in many ways (and don't tell me Halo scored more on metacritic cause the likes of COD4 and KZ2 were not released or else the game would be crap when compared to them). During E3 2005, when Killzone 2 was first seen, M$ were the first one to say that the images were pre-rendered and could not be handled by any next gen console (ya cannot be handled by the crapbox). When the game came out, even EPIC admitted that the game was great looking due to the 20 GB textures in it... Then why the hell are you saying that Gears 2 is better looking.
'Killzone 2 is the second best looking game ever made' (CRYSIS is first)-Quoted by n number of developers. Do you think a crap 256MB GPU can produce the second best looking game ever? As I told 360 graphics=GPU whereas PS3 graphics=GPU+CPU (and by the way CPU of PS3 took millions more than the 360 to be built... Produced by IBM, Toshiba and Sony_. Why the hell would it cost if it were to be inferior to the prehistoric 360 architecture?
Well, just wait for 6-8 months. Uncharted 2.. as seen by few reviewers (they have seen the actual gameplay) have said the game beats Killzone 2 in graphics. Even if that doesn't settle things, GOD OF WAR 3 in FULL HD will settle things
EDIT:lol...this keeps on getting better and better... Well OK lets just assume King Lloyd is right and that an inferior 360 Xenos CPU kicks the crap out of PS3's multi-billion dollar CELL CPU... and also lets assume that Gears 2 is better looking than any game ever made(ha ha).. How much does the 360 goes further?M$ have already crapped and are planning a new xbox whereas Sony keeps on rubbishing rumors of PS4 saying PS3 has 5 years still left..Why do you think M$ will take such a step if the 360 was superior to the PS3? as I said at GDC 09 (just a few days back), Sony kept a gameplay session of Uncharted 2 and God Of War 3. The session was visited by the best site reviewers and devs (check video at youtube).. and all said that both game can even give Crysis a run for it's money (now king llyod will say Gears 2 better than Crysis..blah blah blah). Face it. In 8 months time you will have to eat your words (we will probably meet again then.. When Uncharted 2 is released hopefully you won't change your name in embarrassment) .
And it's utter ****.. I never said Resistance 1&2 used 40GB. I only said Killzone 2 used 40 GB and yes it's the best looking game(again u won't admit it, but I don't care..). KZ2 uses 40GB cause of the animations(200 different cinematic..in the way you kill someone.. so if you shoot one in the leg, he limps..like that 199 more),environment, amount of people on screen (at a time,there are more that 20-30 people on screen during a few parts...(How many did gears support by the way...not more than 10). And don't talk trash that FPS requires less detailing compared to TPS.. hell, instead it's the other way round as in a TPS, a majority portion of screen is taken by the character.. you idiot.. so less detailing is required as the clothes remain constant. Also, RE5 and KZ2 are miles apart. Th character animation, lighting, shadows in KZ2 are far more better than RE5 so stop blabbing sh*t.
Oh ya... and I just came around an article where EPIC developers themselves said that Gears 2 uses 90%(just go to the below link-1st so that you realize I am not bluffing) 360 potential(oh now.. EPIC sucks as well does it?). If that is all the crapbox can churn, then it's lights out my boy. Also go to the second link where Gears producer himself admits 360 maxing out and only small room left for improvement. PS3 still is at 60%...
Final EDIT: Good to know lloyd embraced reality. I never said 360 has bad exclusives. This whole argument started when you claimed that PS3 can't handle Gears 2... Both 360 and PS3 have good exclusives. I just feel that comparing an epic game like MGS4 to Gears 2 is childish (again no offense to Gears 2.. Gears is an awesome franchise, but MGS has been the numero uno franchise for over a decade with Final Fantasy and GT... MGS4 was EPIC and the world acknowledged it... it scored perfect 10 at IGN and numerous other sites... Kojima is more respected than any developer on this planet and all the 360 fanboys are hoping that the recently announced MGS5 comes to the 360.. which I think it will ). I personally own a 360 and like Gears 2(if you haven't noticed, I am a Top contributor in the Xbox forums as well)...
I also agree with you that 360 has better exclusives as off now, but in this year and the next, PS3 has much better exclusives if you ask me. PS3 currently has Killzone 2, Infamous, Uncharted 2, MAG,GOD OF WAR 3, GT5, Quantum Theory,Heavy Rain,FF vs 13,Twisted Metal.... If you haven't noticed, some of the titles are AAA (GT5, Final Fantasy vs 13, GOD OF WAR 3, Uncharted 2,Heavy Rain....) and only game I can think worthy of buying on 360 this year are Halo:OSTD, Alan Wake and Mass effect 2 (that too there are rumors that PS3 version is being
Sony is and will continue to win the exclusives battle due to their first party exclusives. This is where Sony is seriously out classing M$. Since this generation started M$ has been losing first party studios like Bungie and Bizarre while Sony has added studios under their umbrella such as Guerrilla and Evolution. Sony is smart, instead of wasting tons of cash on timed exclusive deals for third party games and DLC they've invested that cash into their first party studios that will make games that will ALWAYS be on systems named Playstation. I heard that Sony has more studios under their roof(more than 30) than M$(which has less then 5) and Nintendo combined. With studios like Guerrilla, Santa Monica, Naughty Dog, Polyphony Digital, Team Ico, etc. making first party titles for Sony you know that their systems will always have quality games.
Hence, I think PS3 will always win the exclusive war eventually. Last year, PS3 scored more on the exclusive titles cause title like MGS4, Resistance 2, Little Big Planet, Valkyrie chronicles.... Yes you might argue that Gears 2 better than MGS4, Fable 2 better than VC.... But in the end I feel PS3 will have better quality exclusives than the 360 due to the amount of developers Sony has roped in. Last year saw a change in trend and this year too, I do feel Sony will have the last laugh.If M$ really had so many unannounced exclusives, then what are they waiting for to announce them? Developers themselves announce games a year back so that hype is generated. And I never said M$ owns the sites(catch @Archos for that.. since he works at gamespot..) , but I can surely say IGN and Gamespot are 360 biased (hell even the PS3 page has 360 ads in them)We both can argue all day, but we will let time decide who wins.
Anyways sorry for the harsh words I have used or abused you in any way. Nothing personal... I am just angry that my f*ckin 360 has broken for the third time..RROD and just venting out my frustrations on you. Sorry man.
