Didn't feel like making a thread for this, so I thought I'd let you all know that MS are bringing a blu-ray drive addon to 360

I don't think that's entirely accurate. The point is that it's optional. If I didn't have a PS3, I wouldn't bother with a Blu-ray drive, but for people that don't have a triple this is just another way of getting HD movies. Microsoft peddle a relatively cheap machine with expensive bolt-ons, Sony give you the whole thing in a pricey oner, it's a perfectly valid consumer choice.

Yeah, for me, i want a 360 for the exclusive titles, and online play i know i enjoy. I can play with you guys, and my brother, and friends back home if i get an xbox. But, i want hi def movies. Being student, i have an extremely limited budget when it comes to shit like this, so the option to buy a, what are we thinking 100 Blu-Ray add on for my 200 machine works out at the same cost as a ps3, but i WANT an xbox, because of the things i mentioned above.

Its a straight choice between the two pricewise, and im sure nobody here would begrudge me chosing a 360 with blu ray over a ps3? (Except maybe Seany) In my opinion the Xbox still has an advantage ove ps3 in terms of back catalogue, and titles still available.

Nah. the days of Xbox 360 being so much cheaper than PS3 are long gone. Talking up one of the features that they've constantly tried to down play in the past and release their own expensive version of it seems very counter productive to me.

Although I doubt this is even true. Steve Ballmer is a clown with a big mouth, and Robbie Bach (head of MS entertainment division) said earlier this year that there was no BR player coming to 360 for the reasons I stated.

Edit: that was a reply to gdf btw.

I'm gonna get a PS3 soon anyway, so fuck the blu ray add on. Although everybody I work with says they have owned about 3 PS3s and traded all of them because its just not as good as the 360.

I'll decide for myself, I guess, although I'll be hard pushed to be entirely converted to the PS3, because I have played it, and I do prefer the 360. In general. But there are a few PS3 exclusive games that are frankly too good to ignore.

*Insert fanboy-ant PS3 argument here vvv*

Edge vacancy.

Just looks like they Photoshopped the needler together with a bigger gun. Not convinced.

I dunno. That battle rifle in the link looks pretty genuine, even though the covenant needler thing looks like a splice of 2 other weapons. I reckon they are genuine. There's too many new attachments for them to be created from scratch.

Was anyone awhere of this story at the time it was circulating? It was a related article to a current MW2 article: http://news.sky.com/skynews/Home/World-News/Iraq-War-Video-Game-Called-Six-Days-In-Fallujah-Is-Withdrawn-After-A-Storm-Of-Protest/Article/200904415271595?lpos=World_News_Article_Related_Content_Region_5&lid=ARTICLE_15271595_Iraq_War_Video_Game_Called_Six_Days_In_Fallujah_Is_Withdrawn_After_A_Storm_Of_Protest

So we can have books and films and so forth but if a game does it then it's too soon? Who are these hypersensitive pussies that make shit like this happen? This might of been a good game but now we may never know.

Yeah that was sown around at E3 wasnt it?

I remember thinking it was a tech demo at the time, but yeah, it could have been amzing. An actual proper step into showing the world that videogames are a legitimate medium. Dicks.

Exactly, Mass Effect makes people sleep with aliens and Left 4 Dead encourages violence against zombies.

Final Fantasy XIII finally has a US/EU release date. March 9th!

And apparently Leona Lewis is doing the main theme. Weird.

Not sure why they would use some shitty pop song for the main theme, it's blatantly going to ruin whatever overly dramatic scene it's used in.
