Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!
PS3/360, they both match my hi-fi now, which do I buy?
I just got a new job and can finally afford to buy a Playstation 3. However having seen the new Xbox 360 elites I am tempted by its new image (yes, I am that shallow), enhanced by the lack of $800 price tag due to me living in the UK.
Having been out of the loop/playing WoW for quite a while I was thinking it would be a good idea to get some advice before spending my hard earned cash.
I have a decent PC and as such anything that comes out on PC I can easily miss out on console, however I want to have access to as much quality stuff as possible. On the Xbox both Mass Effect and Halo both look good although I have never played the previous Halos and to be honest never missed them, Bioshock is something that fills that void singleplayer, multiplayer I am not so sure.
On the PS3 both Heavenly Sword and Metal Gear look awesome. It's other exclusive Assasin's Creed is no longer exclusive and I am assuming GTA will be available in some form for every system imagniable including my old gameboy.
Does anyone have input on games I have missed out, big PS3 titles that will replace Halo, I'vs seen Haze but not so sure about it being for me. I really enjoy games with strong storylines or stylistic gameplay/artwork (things like shadow of the colossus) and am less interested in sport releases with the possible exception of skate which looks amazing or possibly Guitar hero (power slide may not be in the olympics yet but they should be).
Also information on things like how good the online functionality is and their extra abilities. Blu-Ray is cool but I don't see how much use it will really be. I will do my own research but I am sure you know things I'll have missed.
