Shipping this week: envy edition

Alright, let's get this out of the way. There are two games hitting the Xbox 360 this week. Those games are NCAA March Madness 2008 (wait, it's December, isn't it?) and Madden NFL Football 08 Español. So, if football is your thing, maybe you've got something to be happy about. Us, though, we're just a tad envious of the Playstation 3 this week. Those lucky Sony lovers can get their hands on Unreal Tournament III this week. So, congrats PS3 fanboys, you got one over on us this week. Enjoy it while you can. We guess we'll just have to go back to playing Mass Effect. Or Assassin's Creed. Or The Orange Box. Or Call of Duty 4. Or Rock Band. Or Halo 3. You know, come to think of it, we suppose we can wait a little longer for UTIII.

I like playing fps with the ps3 controller, I've never like the xbox controller and the off set thumb sticks never did it for me. I don't see how it's any better or worse, just not my style. It's funny ps3fanboy doesn't post news like this, I think its a xbox thing, And to the pairis hiltion thing, 08 is going to be huge like Pam Anderson. What's in the line up for the 360 in 08, Halo wars and some more halo map pack, halo halo halo. Gezz fanboys need to get over them selfs. I have both sitting in front of me and my 360 never gets played.

--the PS3 controller lacks triggers that fit gun-like as the 360 controller has. the thumb-sticks also lack the 360's superior grip. too many times have i had to readjust my thumb on a PS3 controller. the 360 controller was made for the FPS in mind wheras the PS3 controller was never really changed for years now.

granted the d-pad is much better on the PS3 and is much more suited to play VF5.

--PS3fanboy has always been envious of Bioshock.
xbox360fanboy has always been envious of MGS4.

--to me the 360 isn't all about Halo. both 360 and PS3 have great content coming next year. of the two I'm more looking forward to 360 and Ninja Gaiden 2 (my reason for getting xbox 1 was NG).

of the two consoles I see myself getting more 360 titles when it comes to multiplatform games as I like the online better, the controller better and the service better.

--to each his own.

HAHA Mr. Mitchell, you spelled "and" wrong!!!1!111, it isn't "amd"! If you were writing that on a PS3 its superiorness would have corrected you!

Well remember the 360 has had a full year jump on the PS3. It seems to me that the year 1 mark of consoles are when solid games start coming out. The PS3 has some heavy hitter exclusive titles next year that 360 users can only dream of. Kill zone 2, UT3, MGS 4, God Of War 3, Little Big Planet, Kingdom Hearts, Final Fantasy Infinity, Tekken, Haze, White Knight Chronicles, Metal gear Solid Online, and thats just of the top of my head. There are also the big multi-platform titles like Devil May cry and Street Fighter. The only 360 game I cant wait for is Ninja Gaiden 2. I own both consoles and have since they both launched. Im on my 5th 360 due to faulty hardware. The more I go along the more I go for the PS3 because of its features and versatility as more than just a gaming console. The PS3 will certainly only grow in popularity while the 360 and Wii ( Yes, I own that POS wii too) will fall out of favor. In fact, im willing to bet the Microsoft will eventually have to release a successor to the 360 just to compete with the sheer power of the PS3 as a true media center.
