Game war.....what the hell is wrong with people?????
« on: December 13, 2000, 11:33:41 AM »
I already posted this message in another thread, but just in case people missed it......

*sigh* I can\'t believe how scared people are getting over this game war thing. Sony will not abandon the PS2...nor will Xbox over come it. Have you forgotten that PS 1 totally DESTROYED the N64, and that was Sony\'s first crack at gaming. The N64 was faaarr superior to the PS but still more people went for Sony. Most everday people won\'t even know what an Xbox is...so they will just turn back around in their lazyboy and finish playing MGS2. And third party companies aren\' stupid....I think they like MONEY. And besides that at the price of a new whole computer...in my opinion the Xbox is the one that\'s going to be a pricey paper wieght.

Oh yeah...just for the people who are getting frantic about EA....they support EVERY system.
Playstation 2...yeah, I got that:D

PS1 destroyed N64 because:

1. It was one year earlier, and had time to build up a userbase/market recognition
2. The N64 went cartridge.  Games were more costly.
3. The N64 went cartridge.  Games were few and far between.
4. The only machine in place to slow PSX sales before N64\'s eventual arrival was...  the $400 Sega Saturn which was available at limited retailers.
5. The N64 went cartridge.  Developers couldn\'t afford the risk of a poorly selling title.
6. The N64 went cartridge.  Development was extremely costly.

Sony made all the right decisions last generation.  But they were also fortunate that their competition made all the WRONG decisions.  It\'s a bitch to be the new kid breaking into the industry.  I\'m sure Sony would\'ve been fine even if Sega/Nintendo weren\'t so stupid, but we would\'ve had a close as hell 3 way race (thanks to Sony\'s money $$$$$ and marketing muscle :)).

What he\'s trying to tell you is that there is a really good chance that even though it has come out a year ahead of the xbox, you can\'t count on Microsoft making all the same boneheaded mistakes that Nintendo did. First of all the biggest stupidest stunt was the small memory cartridge. Some of the game developers waited a lifetime before putting out any software for it since they didn\'t want to insult their stuff by making a small little cheesy version. This won\'t be a hold-up for the xbox. The REALLY REALLY STUPID thing that sony did with the PSX was to never upgrade that crummy little 2X CDROM drive to a 20X or more.

Close, retro.  I was just explaining that Sony fought a dumb Nintendo and Nintendo is smarter this time.  I was also saying that XBox won\'t have this gen handed to them like last gen was handed to Sony.  People think that since XBox is new, it will dominate like Sony did.  I\'m saying - no.  Sony\'s dominance was a direct result of Sega/Nintendo\'s incompetence last gen.  This gen, nobody is acting that stupid.

Okay K, I stand corrected, or rather sit corrected. Then take everything that I previously stated and refile it under the category of "what I think". I personally believe that everything is going to be fairly balanced but Sony definitely is in the driver seat for now. Nintendo and MS will both have to do impressive things to take the market over, or at least get significant control.
