I cant believe it but IGN has finallt written an article worth reading. Only took 5yrs http://xbox360.ign.com/articles/121/1212379p1.html
I can honestly say I agree with them.
is this the one about PS3 outselling the XBox 360 ? I can't open it right now for some reason.
I read it earlier tomorrow though, it's pretty straight forward and informational, so basically nothing there to hate. I agree with that too, XBox has little relevance in other places like Japan or Europe and that's a well known fact.
Just don't read any of the idiotic comments they post there... damn, IGN is filled with idiots.
This is a Bad Time to be an FPS Fan
A lament for the death of innovation and ambition in the single-player FPS.
Is this a bad time to be an FPS fan? If you take the recent merciless public Metacritic mauling of Modern Warfare 3 as any kind of reliable barometer of the current public feeling, then the answer would appear to be a resounding yes.
The natives are restless. They're bored of more the same formula being wheeled out year after year. They've had enough of over-hyped blockbuster games with iterative multiplayer, a by-the-numbers campaign mode, and eye-rolling Michael Bay-esque storylines. The tech looks tired, they've seen it all before, and yet the review scores remain high, and the sales are even higher. What the hell's going on? Is the FPS scene really stuck in an interminable rut right now, or is it just a case of over-familiarity?
In fairness, it's a bit of both, but the thing that's increasingly obvious is how much the single player offering has become something of a lost art, and a sideshow to the main multiplayer event. Many times recently, friends have dismissed my concerns with a curt 'who cares about single player anyway?' Well, I do, and I'm fairly sure an awful lot of people agree with that point of view......
Nothing I haven't heard before but you're right it's a good article.
