I dont care if they are...Id never buy an XBOX or a 360...Im happy with my PS2 (until it dies, of course...dying implies no more excellent games for it). I still have my PSOne and play its old games, like TR1. Im a Sony boy I guess.

360 is selling some units in Japan now... GOW was doing very well there, last I heard. Maybe the SUPER-HIGH price of the PS3 will cause some Japanese to finally look at an alternative that isn't "made in Japan"?

You're affected by that propaganda JUNK? Just look around this forum and see how many members actually own 360's--and LOVE them. Trust that before you trust any Corporate mouth-piece or fanboy.

I guess. And whatever that game was, I'm not getting it. Anyway. I don't think they shoud have done that. I think the man was trying to say theres no need for long loading screens. The processors for that game could and should have made it smaller. Sorry for being dum people :o

Like no other company lies about stuff :rolleyes: It's just market speech to hype up people.
I'd buy a xbox 360 but the games don't appeal to me. There are exceptions but just a few wont make me buy it.

funny how I knew you'd post a video like that lol :p

Trust you to make a thread like this, I have a 360 doesn't take that long for it to load and wher eit says something like its the games that made it good not the hardware? HA! Thats bull**** the PS3 only had hardware to support it! All the games are ****.

Its made by sad pathetic Sony fanboys :)

for me it don't take 23 seconds to start my xbox360. It's just pressing the A buttom and then it takes like 5 seconds. And the loading screens isn't that long. It's just as they edidet the video. Crappy video...

There are 4 of those Anti Xbox vids if you look on Youtube.
That guy who said there was no loading times in Munch's Oddysee is WRONG! I have MO and I get a loading screen after EVERY level. The Xbox does NOT load up in 8 seconds. More like 12-15 seconds.

Loading times are the fault of developers, not hardware. There are games on the PS2 will hardly any load times at all--yet many games are notorious for horrible loading times. Some games on the 360, despite it's power, have loading times that I think are too long while others are very quick. It has nothing to do with hardware--it's what developers do with the hardware.

Seriously. I'm not going to say Microsoft is a flawless company, or that the Xbox or 360 are perfect consoles, but to say they're a "failure" because of mediocre sales in Japan (...despite doing excellent everywhere else) is a really ignorant and biased statement.

Oh God, wtf is wrong with you fanboys. I can make a thread about the lies Sony has told with their precious "in-game" graphics then trying to backtrack to say how those were pre-rendered graphics and that's the goal they were trying to reach.

Every company lies. If you didn't know that then wake up.

Some games do have absurd loading times. Others have awesome loading times. Oddworld Strangers Wrath has virtually no loading screen time. Area 51 has very very short loading times. Short as in 2 to 3 seconds. Morrowind has painfully long loading times. Just depends on the game.

Whats with the dramatic music?

I am not seeing anything particularly dramatic! And why is Japan such a land mark for gaming success anyway?

This is not a lie, they aimed for success there, but didn't get it! Since when did the original Xbox down fall? You can still get games for it, it is a pretty successful machine.

The controller issue is fixed with the 360. Plus it is better if they listen to people and release a smaller version for Xbox? No?? So what? It got complaints. The PS3 controller is certainly not anywhere near as close to the Wii or 360 controller.

As for loading screen, he was refering to one game only! (munch's audesy) Oblivion is probably the biggest game ever made, of course it will take time to load! Jeez! Plus if you get a hard drive, it loads faster.

As for lying hurt on Sony, this is fact! With their head start. And every console has a load screen, the Xbox is supposed to be left on, and if you leave it on, it starts right away.

This video is a hopless piece of ****! Accept each console for what it is! It is that easy, and get over the competition.

Legend of Lara will you ever?

I have seen worse loading times in Sonic Shuffle. It takes about 1-2 minutes to load a mini-game.
Going into the Sonic Room is SOOOOOOO slow. Even quitting the SR is slow AND the music is STILL playing. So, does DC have worse loading times than Xbox?

illuminati30
06-02-07, 20:27
Again, Oblivion is probably the biggest game ever made. Yes it takes just as long to load on the PC, and it will take just as long on the PS3. What matters is, everyone who has a 360, has already played it to death, been there, bought the t shirt and explored every corner of the game, and those wanting to play it on the PS3 have a hell of a long loading screen to look at!

In the PC world Microsoft has angered a lot of people, but in the console world Sony are clearly the "snake oil salesmen" of the lot. No console maker over-exaggerates more than Sony! As far as what they promised us, MS has delivered brilliantly with the 360. The only real disappointment has been the slow progress made on backwards-compatibility, but they didn't exactly mislead people on that either.

Sony, meanwhile, has tried to sell us on the moon--and tried to charge us for it too. They have the arrogance to expect that people will blindly speculate on the outcome of Blu-Ray vrs HD-DVD and help Sony win that battle. Well I'm not putting my hard-earned money at risk, Sony. PROVE to me that Blu-Ray is a success then I'll pay for more than just a game machine. There's no way that I'll put my money on the line and start buying Blu Ray movies only to find that, 2 years from now, HD-DVD's are filling the shelves while Blu-Ray is in the bargain bin. That's happened to Sony before you know.

Glad to see the filmmaker is taking sources from such reliable and well-known games websites as the Christian Science Monitor

:rolleyes:

Seriously people, what is with all this 'console wars' crap? I've always owned a PS, but that doesn't mean I'll immediately dissmiss the 360 or Wii out of hand. It comes down to which company/machine has the games that you want to play on their system.

I've always thought I would get a PS3 when it was released, but if it turns out that more games I'm interested in are being developed for another platform, I'm not going to cut my nose off to spite my face. And like the Dreamcast proved a few years back, all the crowing in the world about having the 'technically best' console on the market won't save your product if no games developers want to create software for it. I just don't see the need for bashing other companies, it's not like anyone's forcing you to buy a specific console :confused:

Exactly, I always keep coming back to Sega for reference on history. History repeats itself, just with a different name on its shirt. Not neccessarily that one of the console makers will just give up on it, but that its entirely possible for it to happen fairly unexpectedly.

This is really demoting but everyone here that owns a 360 is really happy, there are Xbox360 fanboys and Sony fanboys. We only have sony fanboys in the forum. So a group of Sony fanboys are doing there best to demote the 360 by making this video and that 360 is 3 days old I mean it's supposed to get used to loading and obviously Microsoft will exagerate it's called Marketing! I wonder what Sony will do...
