Get Mass Effect 2 for the PC for a bargain price of 27.99 (excluding voucher), which is almost TEN POUNDS CHEAPER than the 360 exclu.... sorry 360 version which is 37.98...

Like the original Mass Effect I expect the PC version to be the best version in terms and this time they are being released simulateously so its really a no brainer.

sadly the problem with shopto is that, you don't pay what the price of the product was when you placed your pre-order. They sometimes bump up he price at a later date, its happened to me on more then one occassion.

oh right, have only used them for one pre-order and that was killzone 2, where they upgraded my order to the steel tin version for free, although they then made the standard edition a £ or two less and gave me the option to go for that if i wanted.

Nope saying its a sony exclusive would mean it was available on the PS2 and PSP.

Games like uncharted are therefore "PS3 exclusive".

Cold in here.

If a game also goes to the PC MS make money simple as that(it's a win win situation for them) and I suppose Sony do not want to release games on the PC as well and make millions more than they can just being stuck with the PS3 version,, why don't they ?,simple really the PC is MS platform as in if it don't run on windows it won't sell and that would mean Sony would in effect be supporting MS a bit like if MS used Blu-Ray really but at least MS has an answer to Blu-ray with 1080p downloads direct from your sofa.

not really, because unlike your downloads, i can take my Blu-Rays to a friends house and watch them there, or i can trade them in when i've finished with them, or sell them at a car boot sale or whatever. plus until we all get 50 MB broadband with no download cap it's not gonna be that popular. and back to the HDD issue, your gonna need your 1TB external HDD for all those films aren't you. I'll just wait for the 2.5" 1TB HDD to be £50 then i'll slot it into my PS3 myself, no need for an external drive, oh and i will be able to hear my films over the sound of my silent PS3. yeah and my dad could beat your dad up easily etc.....I think that's about it.

Firstly you are talking about "Buying the disk i" what has this got to do with renting it ?. You know nothing about how it works really do you, and 1 tb drives!!!!! what have they got to do with this ? after you watch the film it deletes itself after 24 hours, are you that stupid you didn't even look anything up before commenting?.

You were the one that brought up renting, not me, i like to own my films not rent them, i have SKY+ for that.

As for Gabe Newell, everyone knows that Valve are just lazy, yeah the PS3 may be difficult to develop for but, tell that to Naughty Dog or even Rockstar who have decided to do Agent exclusively on the PS3.

Do they really? It would appear you are the one who doesnt have a clue if you think the supposed 1080p streaming they are offering is going to be as high quality as a Blu-ray then i am sorry to say you are going to be dissapointed - the bit rate will be so low that it will totally negate the benefits of the increased resolution, even the current 720p downloads they offer are barely upto the standard of a upscaled dvd.... Then there is the issues of bandwidth caps, audio etc...

You see when you write things like that there is One word that comes to mind and thats bulls*it,I have watched many films at 720p on the 360 and if you think they looked like upscaled dvds then you haven't seen One (My upscaling dvd is a Sony RDR HX750 by the way).

Is that the same Gametrailers you said about were owned by MS and bias to MS -

Yep the very same Gametrailers, just goes to show how much of a landslide it was. Pity for them they couldnt do a side by side comparison of the Last Guardian, i bet the '360' version would have won....
But having seen what was on display there could only be one winner After all it is "gametrailers" not "gimmictrailers"

As for the TV clip (watched with sound off) - why the red suits, and floor markings - what happens if they step out , and of course everyone will have that much free space in front of there TV, also the games looked far from impressive, the first one well its like ping pong from the 70's using an Eyetoy and the second one i'd rather be sat down using an actual wheel.

Because (and you should naturally realise this), it's somewhat detracting from the original deal ... which is what I am sure most people looking at it really care about, not whether one system is better than the next.

It's sad really, that not a gaming based thread goes by (seemingly), where the fanboys don't all wade in with their opinions to make sure everyone else who disagrees knows they are 'wrong'.

Thankfully it's only a few people, but it's a shame nonetheless.

It's easy to be drawn in, I understand. It's just silly. Arguing moot points (and they tend to be moot), especially across the Internet, is daft. Fair enough when plain facts are laid down, but never mind.

I like the PS3. I like the 360. I like the Wii. I own two of these systems, but I recognise all three have great games. Sales figures are a good representation of popularity among the masses and perceived 'greatness', but something being good is down to a matter of opinion really, unless (as mentioned) hard facts prove otherwise.

Back to the point though - Mass Effect was quite enjoyable. I will look forward to the sequel and will be picking it up when it's around the £20 mark. It would seem that most newer games can be had from somewhere for less than £30 if you are willing to look after launch. I added my heat by the way, even if others didn't.

I don't think any sales figures could ever be considered genuine if manufacturers were to include replacements as 'new' sales (which I would go out on a limb here and say these do not). Sony and Nintendo have also had their fair share of replacements to make I am sure, but unfortunately for Microsoft, theirs are more widespread and are well known.

I'm not talking about warranty replacements i'm talking about failures before the 3 year warranty was introduced, out of warranty rrod replacements, and all the other other faults.
Sure sony and Nintendo have had faulty consoles but no more so than any other well built electrical item, however the failure rate for the 360 is in a different stratosphere.

And of course Sony didn't count all those PS2s that were returned with the DVD drive errors etc so did they really sell that many?.

The simple fact is the 360 is selling well and is selling very well considering it's only the second Xbox "Xbox 2" and the Sony is on it's third t console the Sony PS"3".

I would go out on a limb here again, and wonder how many people have purchased a new console and not sought to replace their current unit due to RRoD failure. Of course, there will be some (same for Wii, PS3 etc where warranty could replace), but I suspect this number would be quite low for all three systems, because the perceived 'hardcore' gamer is a small percentage of purchases.

I wouldn't be able to say for sure, but how many 360 consoles are out of RRoD warranty exactly?

Realistically, I would say that those consoles that have been purchases through tough luck (warranty expiration etc) would be less than 2% (more realistically >1%). It would be interesting to find out, but sadly, I don't think anyone has this information to hand - not even Microsoft!

Regardless of this fact, Microsoft at least recognised their faults and offered the increased warranty. I do recall PS2 machines early on suffering from dodgy read errors from the laser, but Sony stood firm and chose not to extend any warranty there, but again, the flip side to this coin was that the failure rate was quite low in comparison to the 360.

Which we should do a full-turn and note that the core hardware itself was not likely the fault with the 360, rather the heatsink was not applied correctly (allegedly - not proven by any means, but seemed to be a common theme from what I could tell). Schoolboy error (and then some), but cost them a reasonable chunk of reputation either way.

You got in there just before me :thumbsup:

Noting your sales figures in you avatar - if Sony chose not to use Blu Ray as their medium, how do we think sales would have shaped up?

Likewise, if Microsoft had chosen not to chop the price significantly (and it was significant!), do we think sales would have been as high?

As for the Wii, well, let's not go there. Clever sods, Nintendo.
