Post subject:  Best Next-Gen Game of Q4?

What next-gen game (wether it be for 360, PS3, Wii, or even PC) do you think will be the biggest hit in the Holiday Season (Q4, or basically the last part of the year)?

I'd say a tossup between Rainbow Six Vegas and Gears of War.

Runner ups for me are Forza 2 and Tony Hawk's Project 8.

(Remember, this only applies to games being released BEFORE THE END OF THE YEAR.... so no MGS4 or Halo 3, do some research before posting!).

[EdiT] OMG, I almost forgot about Sonic!!! =D

Make my runner ups Sonic the Hedgehog and Forza 2 (or I could be a total fanboy and make it my pick, but that would be too much).

PS: Along with the Bold, Italics, and Underline features, we really need a Cross-Out option, that way I could cross out THP8 and add Sonic (this allows people to see what I originally wrote aswell).

Resistance: Fall of Man on the ps3 or Red Steel on the WII
I would say halflife 2 episiod 2, but I think thats Q1 of 2007.

/me doesn't really know what games are coming out then

if CoD3 came out, I'd go for it. probably get the wii version though. just for the motion-sensitive aim (and , YES, the PS3 has motion sensitivity too, but the wiimote has a gun attachment. beat that :mrgreen:

Im not into consoles but there are only a few console games that apeal to me. 3. Medal of Honor Airborne (yes I like airborne infantry and jumping out of plane - as I do in AA), 2. Call of Duty 3 (I like the way CoD makes it feel that you really are in the war), 1. Gears of War - freakin awesome looking game with a somewhat solid storyline - plus the UE3 engine which looks ever gorgeous - just to imagine how AA will looks with that - or anygame.

There are possibilities that I might try consoles, 360 specificaly for Gears of War... ofcourse, if I get a choice Id rather upgrade my computer with more Ram, HDD space, cooling systems, GPU, and Vista.

make sure you do the upgrades before vista. if you do processor/GPU/mobo changes, you'll need to buy another license.

I know that.. upgrades come first before new OS. Plus regarding the consoles again, The good reason for getting these upgrades, Vista, and a 360 is that they are all interlinkable. Which is so damn good!

Estimate prices... (CAN)
2x512Mb Ram $119 OCZ Premium DDR
1x512Mb GeForce/Radeon cards DX9/10 approx $300-400
1xPSU 650 Watts approx $150
1x 120mm fan $20
1x CPU fan and heatsink $60-100
1x soundcard $60
1x 120/250Gb HDD SATAII $120-200
1x Windows Vista $300
1x Xbox 360 $500-600
1x Gears of War (360) $60
1x Unreal Tournament 2007 $60
1x graphics tablet $150

Oh man! this is over $1000!

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Although expensive (I should be working and getting good money by then so probable not a problem - this is in 2.3 years - waiting till DX10 videocards hit the second year) this might have some good uses. With Microsoft XNA for 360 and PC, this rig, the 360, and time and talent equals good third party gamers, which equals a good job with good pay.

So far the Xbox360 is the only console that offered players a chance to make their own games. I dont see that in PS3 or Wii, which makes the 360 more appealing to me. For the games on console though, until they begin making console games you can mod and make content for, im not so interested yet.

lol. I build my computers myself, do my own maintenance, and basically everything normal people would pay someone from BestBuy or FutureShop to do. -yes Im weird.lol

Im not going to spend all of that at once.. especially on a console, with the exception of a possible fact that Gears of War never gets a PC port like Halo2 - in that case I will get a 360 for it.

If we are voting for the best console game for Q4 or Q1-07, then I would say Gears of War - and UT2k7 (but since it is a port from the PC it doenst really count).

Votes are based on graphics (Unreal Engine 3), storyline - very dark but fastpaced and is high octane action, gameplay - the 12min videos shows that you can do alot of things other shooters dont let you do like blindfire from behind cover. - Also, being the only game at this point using really good textures and shaders for characters and environments that they almost look real.

You forgot the Physics Card from BFGTech! :D
It may not be a big deal now, but it's most likely going to become proprietary in the future.

Nah.. I never really planed for a physX card until they are actually requirements. So far all I have seen is they may give better effects, they drop fps rates a bit.

Well, if you want to play Cell Factor when it releases, you'll have to have one.... that's a start. :)

Im not playing CellFactor though... plus, maybe it will be better if somehow there is a way to get a console (360) to run PC games right off my computer... that would be great.

Yeah, that would be cool, but it would take a lot of elaborate coding to make a PC EMULATOR.... that would be TOUGH.... :x
