I own all 3 of the current consoles. Why wouldn't I. I have/had the cash and as a discerning gamer utterley bemused by all the fanboy bullshit I hooked myself up. Although owning them all brings its own problems....
Basically, I have had a 360 since launch (Yep, it still works) and as most of my friends own the same if a game is available across all the consoles, I buy the 360 edition. That and the fact that I am sadly attracted by gamerpoints. I have very few, but I like to think that one day I will work my way through the 40+ games I own and max them all out. Hey, a guy can dream.
But having followed both Infamous and Uncharted 2 I'm prediciting that this year may well belong to Sony, certainly in the exclusives anyhow. Don't get me started on Quakezone 2. I'm with the somewhat infamous Edge review when it come to KZ2. It is a safe 7. Looks a lot like Quake 2 albeit with a next gen update. Anyhow, I digress.
So top of my shopping list is Infamous. BUT....I have no interest in Home. It seems to me that Sony have yet to sort out the whole trophy thing. Basically when I boot up my PS3 I do not want a menu. I do not want what basically amounts to my laptops desktop. I want ON TOP my profile, my trophies, my friends and their trophies. I do not want to have to boot up HOME. I have no interest in a 3D avatar. I do not want to walk around a 3D world. I just want a nice sleek menu based system that totals up my achievements vs my friends achievements and lets me access the PSN Store & my game(s).
Is Sony that pissed off with Microsoft that they feel the need to cut there own nose off to spite their face? Surely I am not the only person who sees HOME as a massive waste of hard disc, bandwith and most of all time. It would take Sony a couple of weeks I'm sure to come up with something that basically amounts to the NXE.
Or....is it just me. read
