Nah, that's why at E3, 80% of your shit was CG, 'artists impressions' videos.
That's why we've yet to see a single direct feed video of a finished product.
That's why you're launching in a few weeks with gamers not knowing what is real and what is not...
- will AA be suddenly turned on with the flick of a switch in games?
- will Oblivion flick the switch and suddenly turn on shadows like the big headed developers say and then will the frame rate hold up?
- has the Perfect Dark media been a hoax and it really does look better than a current gen Xbox game or have you spent zillions on a dud company?
- why are EA releasing a hundred launch titles that have shiploads of missing features from their current gen versions, while still being graphically 'crappy'?
MS have rushed this console out, hoping to get the same lead in sales that the PS2 had yet now they seem to be packing shit, hoping the PS3 isn't using this extra time to blow them away, scared that they may be lost in the middle just like the Dreamcast was.
how you come up with this stuff is beyond me. how was 80% of their vids at E3 CGI? they were real time (except a choice few titles) and thats why people werent impressed compared to sony's CGI movies that they were showing. how are you going to see footage of a finished game when none of the games were finished when they were shown. how many times must people like you need to be told that these are launch games that werent built for the 360, so how are they supposed to take advantage of the 360 technology when 80% of their development was used on altered macs? giving out alpha kits over a year ago isnt waiting till the last minute and shit happens in this industry or else im sure they would have had the final dev kits in the devs hands when they wanted to without any delays. again how is it MS's fault that EA can program worth a shit and doesnt care to actually put effort into how their next gen games look?
MS knows that they cant get the same lead as the ps2 because sony had 2 years to gain their lead. they just wanted to be first out the game as they have said from the beginning.
you say MS is rushing this thing out when i say it cant get here fast enough. unlike you i understand the facts of launching a system as i have waited and experienced many of them. and for what MS is pulling off (worldwide launch, final dev kits coming in late, getting more games developed for their console then any other before the system's launch) they are doing it better then any other company can.
i wonder when the system is finally out and we get oblivion and other games in our hands meeting our expectations will people like you come out and say you were wrong? im guessing no, but sure as hell bet that there are others that will remember all those that had nothing better to do then stay on a forum for a console that they say nothing good about.
then people like you spew your "opinion", which is fine, but then it influences people like ozy who one day will say OMG that looked amazing (talking about whatever game) i cant wait to get this system!! and the next day agreeing with rubbish that people like you spit up. its not nice to play with peoples minds.
like i said orginally this post was meant for light fun and not some kind of assanine comments but thanks for changing that. my opinion on their comments is yeah they may not be needed but atleast they are giving their opinion when more is known about the ps3's progress (which isnt much). considering past playstation launches it would be assumed that if sony actually had more of their plans together then they would be showing it all off to try to steal some thunder out of the 360 hype. and again i thought that what they said was what a lot of people here were thinking, IF they were releasing the console in japan in the spring then they should have a lot more info to show and tell about the ps3. if they even had the same amount of content about the ps3 and MS did back at E3 for the 360 then that would be suitable but they dont because they arent as far along as they would like people to believe.
