I cant wait to see it also. Looks like Microsoft is planning to counter the PS3 launch with Halo 3:

quote from gamespot:

"In next week's issue of Time Magazine--which features Gates holding the Xbox 360 (http://www.time.com/time/magazine/article/0,9171,1061433,00.html) on the cover--Gates mentioned plans for the release of the much-anticipated follow-up to the best-selling console shooter. In a parenthetical sidebar in the article, Time says the following:

"Note to the hard-core faithful: the next version of Halo will not, repeat not, be ready in time for the launch of Xbox 360. It will be part of the all-important second wave next spring. 'It's perfect,' Gates says, radiant with bloodlust. 'The day Sony launches [the new PlayStation], and they walk right into Halo 3.'"

While Microsoft reps were not available for comment as of press time, Gates' comments appear to confirm the theory that Microsoft will release Halo 3 either simultaneously or near the release of Sony's next-gen console. It also marks the first official confirmation that a third Halo is indeed in the works, and will be released for the Xbox 360."

Bill Gates is always wrong, so I bet that somehow Halo 3 won't be release at the same time as the PS3:p Unless its rushed of course, I mean most big name FPS have been delayed more than once.

I didn't like Halo (and I've heard Halo 2 is worse) so Halo 3 won't stop me from buying a PS3.

Halo3 is gonna counter PS3 as much as Halo1 and Halo2 countered PS2, in other words, nothing at all :)

Sony knows how to tease us..any ideas on what they are hinting at with the "welcome chang3" and broken up button symbols? Somthing different and fresh?

Of course they won't be because all the signs show the button symbols broken in different ways. I doubt they will "chang3" the button symbols but it's not impossible. Maybe the console to have a per-game-specific GUI instead of controller-specific buttons will be the PS3 afterall, but that's all speculation at this point. We'll know in 24 hours right?:p

Console wars part Deux. Lu

Is the current situation only part one then....? what about the heady days of the Mega Drive vs the SNES? - to be 8 again - micro machines and world cup italia 90....much simpler days!

PS3 is a huge questionmark, but since im a fan of square enix it's the obvious choice for me. And i'm a fan of japanese games in general.

Hopefully no "console jocks" will be whining about the new nintendo and ps3, because i have been a bit angry latley with these new PC people who has invaded the console world, that didn't play any old singleplayer classics and think halo is the best game ever made.

Now, that's how you should tease a new console launch. It says nothing but it's enough to get you talking. I respect the posters from a design point of view.

Those ads are awful - makes me think - cut and incomplete symbols from the previous version - signifying the ps3 will be just that... PS2 had nothing on the xbox - wheres ur xbox-scene. LOL

There are quite some rumours around that Square Enix might develop for xbox360 as well. :D

Since XBOX didn't sell at all i Asia you could wonder why SquareEnix would ever consider developing for the XB360, they haven't done anything on another console since the SNES days (exept for the GBA/GC thingie). Still, if they do announce a game, it'll make the XB360 worth it, since it doesn't have any other promising titles right now :)

The PS3 posters are truly magnificent, at least if you like minimalism and style, no fancy rendered stuff, no model showing a butt or tit and no other "no-relation-to-games-or-consoles-what-so-ever-crap" :)

yeah, you'd probably have to sell your brain to be able to afford it.. hence "no brainer" ;)

It doesn't matter to me and other 20 million people either. I will ony by the xbox360 once it has good rpgs and adventure games. Star Wars, EA and Halo is not good enough to buy a console. As far as I am concerned (and most other PS gamers), they are garanteed and have full confidence in getting the PS3 because of the already successful 3rd party developers. As far as xbox360 goes, unless there isn't any good games that comes first, I am not buying the console. Halo3 alone is not going to get a million miles closer to getting the PS3 attention. I hope MS won't make the same mistakes again though.

I guess being always wrong is the best way to become the richest man in the west. No wonder I'm so poor. ;)

Bill Gates is a smart guy. XBOX strategy was the biggest billion dollar mistake he ever made. That is all:) . May be that is not too big for him! :rolleyes:

However, if the future is not set then we will see some developers in combination Sony-Nintendo and Sony-MS. Sony is still ahead with the march. But I can see in the long run all 3 will become equally big.

I kind of like the design of the poster. It is a cool design. Simple but works.
