UT and DMC4 used the extra storage for the format and you get to see download times and long loads to play.. The hardware for both consoles cannot handle it for games to play fluidly..

Developer's are making games on the console that is easier to code for.. This is why so many games are being pushed or held back on both systems.. The PS3 is a bitch to code for.. GTA4 and others have been done forever but won't be released because of Sony.. Developers are publicly bashing Sony on their system because of the coding, some have dropped Sony all together..

The only reason right now for the slight shift you see is because Bluray won the battle, people now know which player to buy.. It is the cheap bluray player called a PS3...


I have to wonder about your 360's though.. There were tons of problems with them from launch.. But 3 replacements makes me wonder about environmental issues: too much dust, faulty power surge, brownouts that most surges will not stop.. I have my original 360 from launch date still.. We also have every console in our house that we play, I also help sell them.. (well I try and not sell the PS3 just out of spite to TinyEvel pimping them all the time) But if someone wants a bluray player I sell them a Sony..
Speaking of Tiny....

When are we going to start seeing your ads?
