Seriously. Those controllers are the best thing I've EVER used and the games are unbelieveable. Legends of wrestling and Who wants to be a Millionaire are the best games I've EVER played.

Yay me!

Earth, and its not just Zelda that went to number 1... you will find that increasingly people are starting to think that the PS2 is passed it and those getting consoles now are more and more opting for the Nintendo and Microsoft console (depending what country depends which one).

Nintendo aren't trying to beat the PS2... but if the PSP gets trashed, which it just may, by Nintendo's next behemoth handheld gaming phenomonan expect a massive knock on to the home console market. Sony will no longer be cool if Nintendo, who are the favourites, destroy the PSP in the handheld market which Nintendo has never, ever, ever come second. It will preserve Nintendo in a new light and with the next gen consoles from Nintendo looking more like the SP than the Gamecube/GBA the cool style will pay off.

Also the Panasonic Q was only avalible in Japan that is hardly a fair comparison.

The PSP could kill Nintendo's hopes of being a console and software creator... but it could also kill Sony's. And as Iwati said:

"I think it was very nice of Sony to give us an 18 month head start to prepare a counter strike".

I just saw the new line up of XNS sports games on a demo disc, they look pretty cool and they're all Live enabled, so maybe some competition for EA too.

Oh and did anyone see Tony Hawks Underground? How cool did that look?

I see it now.

"Dis gme has da bst grafics! better than ne ova games!"

The fact that it's stupidly boring doesn't make anyone think...

We need damage. And decent multiplayers!

GT4 wont have any car damage, I now think that GT4 will look good but the game will pretty much remain the same.

However, with the new Ridge Racer title going for a more realistic approach this time around, and attempting to include a storyline, then maybe GT4 will have some good competition this time.

IF GT4 has damage it will be great. If it doesn't, it will be boring like the other ones. It's so tedious after a while...

And what was up with the multiplayer!?!? Only 2 people with no other cars!

How crap/boring was that? The rally courses were the only fun ones. Burnout 2 is far far better than GT3, it just has so much more playability and the multiplayer rocks!

Cool. Can I say people are stupid again? You always make me say it, I must be making some kind of link between you and that phrase.

People are stupid.

There we go.

Right so we've gone from the 'cheap argument' to the 'expensive quality' argument. Make up your mind.

Right so once again you almost completely ignore The Xbox and go off on an 'ooh aren't nintendo crap' tangent. You seem to have a very short attention span.

People switching from crap PS2 games to GC/XBox in droves????? What planet????? Ok so Zelda CUBE went to No1, but what happened 1 week later - knocked of the top spot.

But I an not so blind to say every PS2 game is great - No. Xbox/GC do have some good stuff - yes I said it - but everyones view will be different since some people like one type of game, while other people like others. If your prefered type of game appear strongly on GC, you are more likely to want that console. Image (right or wrong) plays a big part today. Just look at Mobile phones - people want cool looking phones, and many are prepared to pay lots of for them. This is one reason why PS2 sales as well as it does, dispite the higher price. Microsoft may have deep pockets, but Nintendos position is not so certain. Share prices falling, and the prospect of Sony launching a hand held console to rival GBA/GBA-SP/GBA2. Latest launch dates indicate Sony are on a road map which has 2 roads (PS3 and PSP) which converge at Xmas 2004. Dual launch? Panasonic Q was talked about a lot, with its combo NGC/DVD drive, but this is hardly popular, and has done little to get Nintendo's format on terms with PS2.
