Great! Now they can milk Halo,COD, and Gears for another 5 to 6, or maybe even 7 years! If we get lucky, they will buy the DLC rights to PS4 exclusives! God I hate Microsoft :roll:

:lol:

If you hate Microsoft that much, shouldn't you have used either :evil: or :x ?

Don't think the Rolling Eyes emoticon properly conveys hatred correctly, though I may have mixed up hatred with disdain?

Yeah I can't wait for GT6, God of War 4/5/6 and Killzone 4/5, If we're lucky they'll get out of debt so they can buy some dlc exclusives. Lol

Also you forgot to list Forza, you know, the highest rated racing franchise this generation, booyah.

:roll:

No but seriously Microsoft have gone from having the best console to having the most advert littered console in the space of three years and have really made no attempts to alleviate fears the hardcore gamers that built the 360 base have that they're slowly being pushed aside. Joking aside 360 started on the best foot and PS3 started on the worst but PS3 is still pushing to win the hearts of the hardcore while 360 has forgotten them.

All of that has meant I am now open to suggestion from Sony for the next gen, three years ago I'd have snapped your hand off for a 720 now It'll be a hard sell. Nice move Microsoft but I'm sure the casual Kinect crowd will buy a next gen console at launch won't they.... won't they? Oops, better start rebuilding bridges.

You have £300 on a Gamestation card? You either have nuts of steel or you're mental.

Probably a bit both lol, that's why I'm cashing in on the first opportunity regardless of which machine!

Erm, can you really criticise Sony for sequels while using a sequel to defend MS? :lol:

As for GT and Forza, isn't everyone bored to death with them? Even more so than CoD's endless rehashing?

And you'd have thought MS would have watched the Wii's gradual user base collapse over the past year or two and realise that casual pandering only gets you hardware sales, not software or loyalty?

He was just deflecting XFinalfateX's argument back at him. Guy seems to think its only MS that release a lot sequels and throw their money around. The big silly.

You know I was joking you cheeky scamp, I can honestly say the game I'm most looking forward to is The Last of Us. I just don't know what Microsoft are thinking, you hit the nail on the head with 'casual pandering'. Going to be an interesting next gen.

Hate to say it, but with weakening sales of exclusive IP, I can see Sony pandering to the same Angry Birds market. If you consider how MAG, inFamous 1 and 2, Killzone3, Resistance 3, Ratchet & Clank, Starhawk, Twisted Metal etc etc have all sold less than expected, some dramatically less, I can see them seeing hardcore gaming as a market to avoid. The problem is, hardcore gamers tend to find a handful of online games and play them over and over again rather than completing a single player campaign then trading for the next big thing, the way things used to be.
