    Nintendo, Sony and Microsoft prepare to do battle in April

    You might say the three console giants have been battling all along, but April looks set to have an extra touch of significance. AAA-titles are set to make their way onto each platform, but which will come away smiling?

    It depends whether Nintendo make enough balance boards or not and get them into the shops. If they can, they'll "win" by miles and miles. They'll sell even more Wiis off the back of it as well, as if they weren't selling enough already.

    Re: Nintendo, Sony and Microsoft prepare to do battle in April

    I brought a 360 straight off the bat when it launched. I sold it after clocking Gears and struggling to find games i liked and i also thought the build quality was poor. I also wasn't willing to pay to use the live service.
    I upgraded my pc last year and the pc is the best way to play games.. i cannot wait until GTA hits the PC as it better all the console versions.
    I also have a Wii and will probably buy the Wiifit for the missus but not mariokart.
    Considering buying a ps3 as the games look much better and i was a HD dvd + free online play..
    first to introduce a massive MMORPG will win the race

    Re: Nintendo, Sony and Microsoft prepare to do battle in April

    lol,
    Here's some proper pc games for you...
    GameSpy: Women's Murder Club
    GameSpy: The Sims 2: Kitchen & Bath Interior Design Stuff
    GameSpy: Arctic Stud Poker Run
    GameSpy: Riddle of the Tomb

    lol, tbh i think the only half-decent release in April is this..

    GameSpy: Assassin's Creed: Director's Cut Edition

    But it is a port of a non-proper console game .( and gets quite boring)

    I cant wait for Stalker - Clear sky!!!!!!!

    Ouch! Yeah, April seems pretty dead for PC games.

    (Guess I might catch up and finally play through Crysis, The Witcher, and Sins of a Solar Empire)

    Bus simulator 2008, the press release reads ' the most anticipated title of the year'.

    Nice!

    I was slightly confused when I read someone wanted to play this game earlier this week:

    I assume "Bus Driver" is actually what we're discussing - I can't imagine two bus games coming out in the same month!? Shame the reviews are getting an average of 62%. Maybe I'll wait for this to be out on budget. Preferably $0.95 on Steam.

    Edit: The big question is whether or not this game will be free for old people?
