Back in Nov 2005, the X1800XL (Xbox 360 based GPU) cost more than the console itself, if the PS3 had been launched in 2005 (her hardware is from that year), the 7800GTX whom the PS3 GPU is based from cost U$D500.Back there in Nov 2005, the OEM VGA card X1800XL (Xbox 360 GPU) was more expensive than the console itself, if the PS3 had been launched in 2005 (her hardware is from that year), the 7800GTX (PS3 GPU) had costed $500.people, MS and Sony don’t pay THAT for the GPU… there are licitations where the BIG companies as AMD, Nvidia, IBM, Intel etc, puts down their pants for a contract for A LOT of years of production… i venture to say, as an example, if they decide to put a HD7970 ($400 retail now), it will hardly cost to them, per unit, $100.I REALLY hope that they will stick with the PS3/Xbox 360 hardware politics, monsters at the time.IBM 8 core, simple to program or an Intel X86 (Like a 3570 or a Vishera 8320/8350) with a HD7950/HD7970 and 8GB of GDDR5 RAM.If they stick to the Nintendo WiiU’s anti future-proof / evolution of gaming politic, i’ll passGreetings from Argentina 😀
As of right now he has no interest in the Wii U. He’s specifically said that for his current projects, including Rising, he hasn’t even thought about doing Wii U versions or ports at all
OXCGN:”It’s safe to say that the entire gaming world is anticipating GTA V.Rockstar has been elusive up until the last few months, finally nailing down the spring of 2013, but without informing us of a concrete date.Today, Amazon has revealed that we could be jumping back into Los Santos a lot sooner than you think.” (Grand Theft Auto V, PS3, Xbox 360)
@yeahokchiefWhat about anything that you’re claiming about PC fanboysim can’t also be said for fanboys of other formats? There’s nothing unique or special about fanatics of a particular platform.Which games are exclusive to whatever format is not something you’re going to work out on N4G. People will buy what they like.
“I feel like they don’t put women on the covers because they’re afraid that it won’t sell. It’s all gamers really know – and I don’t want to be sexist by any means – but I get the feeling, generally, that they think game’s won’t sell as well with a woman on the cover, compared to some badass dude on the front,” Everything she said was speculation based on an industry she has just become apart of and knows little about. There is zero reason for her to think this is the reason why bioshock’s cover is what is other then to make this a issue of sexism.“I agree with what Ashley said.
A friend of mine in Brazil pays that much for all his PS3 games… until I turned him on to amazon.
