The Next Generation of Playstation

As many who know me are already aware, I've been saving up for a Playstation 3 for the last few months. I'm basically getting the system because I know some really excellent games are coming out next year, but I'm slightly dissapointed with the launch titles.

The only game I could really see myself paying a hefty sixty dollars for is "Resistance: Fall of Man". Now that game looks like it's going to kick a serious amount of butt!! Not only does developer "Insomniac Games" have a fantastic track record (Ratchet and Clank, Spyro the Dragon), but the game is also going to be Sony's killer-app as far as online play is concerned. I'll admit, "Fall of Man" looks much gritter then anything the company had done before, but I'm sure the final product will be outstanding.

Now all the other games that are coming at launch... well, it all looks like every other system's launch line-up. A lot of merely average games trying to cash in on a new system's fire. The only game besides "Fall of Man" that I would even consider is the new "Sonic the Hedgehog" game, but we all know about the crap Sonic Team has produced lately. "Shadow the Hedgehog" anyone?

Hopefully this new Sonic won't

I'm not saying that the PS3's future isn't bright, with such top notch titles just around the corner. "Assaian's Creed" looks amazing, and don't even get me started on the next batch of Final Fantasy games! I could hardly contain myself when I heard The Kingdom Hearts Team was making a Final Fantasy game. I WAS TOTALLY GEEKING OUT!!

Another Final Fantasy, another
fifty hours of my life flushed down
the toilet!

Needless to say, I'm going to be very happy when I get my new system. Plus, you can play it online the minute it's out of the box. NOW THAT'S AWESOME!!

The PS3 doens't look too good. Next year it'll definetly be better, since it'll have FF:XIII and FFvsXIII. But this year, it's all about the Wii.

I'm not that certain about the current generation at all, actually. I personally think that the X-BOX 360 lacks any sort of dramatic graphical jump, the Wii seems a little gimicky (I might change my mind after I see how it actually performs), and the PS3 just doesn't have that many great games at launch. Now, if Final Fantasy XIII came out at launch, it would be an entirely different story.

Ah man...I hate it when new systems come's fun, but then you have to go and buy the new one...blast, I don't think I'm getting one until a really good game comes out...if I get one at all...

Yeah, I'm begginning double guessing getting a PS3 as well (think of all the books I could buy with that money). Knowing me though, I'll probably end up buying one as soon as they're realised anyways.
