Well it really has no impact on Japan as only about 9 people in Japan own a 360.

This was a decision made purely for the North American and European markets. So I'm sure the Japanese won't give a shit as that country lives in a Sony-centric bubble when it comes to gaming.

It's not really that bad, is it?
And how did you like Too Human? I though it was kinda cool, but feels weird not controlling the camera with the RS. I'll have to get used to it, since it's the only Diablo type game on 360. No, I'm not counting Marvel UA or that GODAWFUL Kingdom Under Fire.


Yeah, it IS that bad. One cut scene alone was 1.5 hours. You, honestly, spend more time watching movies than playing the game.

Even when you do get to play, all you have to do to progress through a level is just run! How it keeps getting these perfect scores amazes me.


this is definitely the opinion of someone who not only didn't play the whole game (maybe not at all?) and also has no idea what the MGS series is even about.

Why thank you for that well informed opinion about my statement. Wait, nevermind ... I did play through the whole game as well as previous entries of the series. I've skipped Portable Ops and Acid along with the couple other handheld titles, but my bases are covered as far as consoles are concerned.

So, because I complain about watching more videos than actually playing the game that means I have no idea what's going on in MG? I followed the story quite well and was eagerly awaiting it to all come to a head for what, a decade now?

But I purchased a game and fully expected to be playing some of it, or at least more of it than I did. In most other MG games, I've felt that I needed to sneak in order to survive. Here, it was all too easy to get from point A to point B without having to set traps or even use my tranq gun.

Friend of mine bought a ps3. Really good if you don't have a PC as it relies way too much on internet content. Also it crashes continuously, it's region locked and it's blu-ray if you don't mind twice the price for the same non blu ray disc. As he put it " a very expensive learning experience"

Poor Sony is right. What do they have? Uncharted? MGS4? Lair? Good games, but nothing to make me buy a system over. Then again, I don't have Halo or GoW either. But I'll tell you what I do have: KotoR, Jade Empire, Fable, Doom 3, Crimson Skies and Ninja Gaiden. Never had a Xbox, so the backwards compatability sold me. Sad thing is, PS3 is the more powerfull machine, yet literally nobody I know has one. If they did, I'd be there playing Resistance. Hear that's a good one. Oh well, the Wii will dominate all with it's shovelware and kiddie games.


How do you play Kotor on the 360? I played the hell out of both on the original and tried playing Sith lords on my 360 but it was so slow and choppy I just couldn't bring myself to keep going, maybe it's just my copies but they abrely work on the 360.

Having never played them on a regular XBOX, I don't have anything to compare them to. I just thought the games were a little slow and glitchy, but it could be that I'm playing on 360. Still playable and a hell of a lot of fun. Remember how you could tell a diferance on PSX games that you played on the PS2? My guess is the same thing applies here.
