Hello -

I have a job interview tomorrow at a video games store.

I've been an avid Nintendo player all my life and know the Nintendo line of consoles and games extremely well.

However, I do not know any of the other systems well at all and as a result am slightly concerned about not looking like an idiot.

Give me the 101 on any other non-Nintendo system you play as well as a few good games.

My favorite handheld is the PSP Dual Screen. It has great games like Metal Gear Sonic and Final Destination VII.

As for consoles, I prefer the XBox 2, which is made by Sony. It has really cool games like Resident Halo 2. The PS360 is totally gay and has stupid graphics.

Video games are like sex.

The more you get of one; the less you have of the other...

Seriously though, I usually just play PC games because of cost. But most games are pretty much the same nowadays anyway. It's just a matter of preference of console/or PC. Portables systems however are way different...can't go wrong with PSP and it's media capabilities.

Edit: Hope your interview goes well!

You're a fucking faggot. Everybody knows that the Xbox 2 is shit, and that Resident Halo 2 is overhyped anyway. Sega's PS360 is easily the best console EVER. Plus, there's no Sonic Thunderstorm or Tails' Shack on the Xbox 2, is there? Not to mention Hobo Pickpocketer, which always comes out first on the PS360, and the upcoming Resistance: Fall of the Covenant and Half-Thief 14, both PS360 exclusives. So, go suck a dick, shiteater.

Oh, please. I'm sure you've seen the reviews: the PS360's dual-channel DDR core technology was employed in Sega's previous console, the three-year-old PS Master System! (and we all know how well that went :rolleyesi'm a serial-killer :) Face it, your Sega fanboyism makes about as much sense as Harvest Bandicoot: Quest for the Four Season's ending did! The XBox 2 is categorically a superior machine, and it outclasses the PS360 in power, worksmanship, and quality of games (and gamers, apparently). Let me know when you're living in 2006, dickhead.

Bahahaaaha, what the FUCK are you talking about? Are you somehow forgetting about the Xbox 2's graphics' processor? The one that's based on an improved (barely, from what I can tell from Xcox 2 screenshots...) version of the one in the PSMS? And what about the amazing quad RAM distribution system the Xcox2 employs? Clearly, all the devs saying that they have to go through immense loops to allocate more memory to a specific processor are completely wrong and somehow incompetent. Yeah, that has to be it. Face it you little faggot dumbshit, you know my system outclasses yours entirely and are trying to defend your retarded choice with arguments crafted from pure stupidity.

Oh, real mature, jackass. Honestly, I have to give it to Sega, I never would have thought that they would have the financial wherewithal to make another system after that joke they released three years ago. I mean, did anyone even play that? Every time I go to Best Buy I see hundreds of them just sitting on the shelves, with progressively lower prices. I guess you're right in saying that this new one is an improvement, because it really can't get any worse than the PSMS. Go suck a cock.

So after I shattered your arguments, you're not able to find one flaw on the PS360, you bring up the past. Real smart. Besides, the only reason you see all of those PSMSs on those shelves is because the PS360 does everything they do. People just don't need their PSMS anymore, and anybody with a brain has or had one anyway, and obviously wants the PS360, so they sell theirs to be able to buy more games for the PS360. Get it in your head, the PSMS was a massive financial success for Sega. Speaking of buying, it sure was smart of Sony to price the Xcox2 at 550$. They sure are flying off the shelves huh? With that kind of money, you can get the PS360 AND 4 games + 1 controller. Faggot.

TAKING THREAD SERIOUSLY!!

XBox 360 is the newest machine on the market. It overheats like a motherfucker. You will probably have to deal with returns everyday.

Playstation 3 is coming on the market next month-ish, and is going to compete with the 360. It's more expensive, but a little fancier.

And it might just work more than a few days without crashing during NHL '07 or whatever the fuck you Canada folk play up there. We can all hope.

That's true, but they also think you take games too seriously. Too many people are still unaware of the actual value of a lot of newer game story-lines. Metal Gear Solid for instance...I have a friend that wouldn't finish the first game because if he wanted a movie he'd buy a movie.

I don't understand this. You've got a game that is just as good as a movie, an anime in this case, but it's longer and interactive. I mean...that's better than a movie right?

Right?

You have to know what you're getting into with games like that...know that you'll be spending just as much time, if not more, watching as you are playing.

Last I checked Metroid Prime wasn't cutesy UR THE GHEYEST PERSNO EVAR SNDAMIT!!1

I think the worst anyone could do is say one system is better then another. They all have their strengths and appeals. Just know Nintendo IS cutesy, XBox 360 IS the closest PC/console comparable system and PS3 has Final Fantasy (and Metal Gear Solid...ok and Kingdom Hearts...and God of War...etc).

I still can't wait to use the Wii controller as a lightsaber. I told you guys they'd do it.

Nintendo caters to younger people. That's not being annoying, that's what they say. Or people older than 16 that like cutesy games.

I don't play open-ended games much. I stick to RPG's and sports titles, and I think 3D animation has ruined RPG's for consoles.

I'm seeing Nintendo beginning to cater to the crowd of older teenagers and those in their early 20s who were once their prime fanbase during the late 80's/early 90's; The reintroduction of games from that era (and the style of gameplay), in addition to more complicated games in comparison to the Gamecube and the DS.

As that fanbase has either moved on, or is using other console systems (primarily the Xbox) it seems logical for Nintendo to attempt to persuade them back with the Wii. I know I will be.

#1. I never said any system was better than another, Aaron. Personally, I hate X-Box and think the Wii is childish, while supporting Sony game franchises.

#2. Maybe Nintendo's finally going to try and get back the older crowd, but until it happens, they haven't done it yet.
