Unbelievable. Microsoft just dropped nuke on Sony. This and Netflix, It's over. Microsoft won the console war against Sony.

Kind of saw this coming since the 'white engine' is kind of multiplatform oriented.

1. 90% of Blu-Ray players are PS3.
2. PS3 just surrendered with FF13's defection to Xbox 360.
3. In gaming world, FF13 announcement is akin to Warner Blu-Ray announcement. It was the last nail in PS3's coffin.

Everybody's just stunned, with major gaming boards down by the news.

Basically Hiroshima(Netflix) and Nagasaki(Final Fantasy XIII) today, Sony cannot continue to fight.

Deadmeat while I am sure it is interesting news in the console world might you clue me in on why it is important to put this news in the HDM thread?

1. PS3 kills Toshiba HD-DVD player
2. Xbox 360 kills PS3.
3. Xbox 360 is the last man standing. Microsoft's plan of world domination is now complete.

There is no 'console war'

Every generation of consoles has had at least 2-3 viable systems.

And with that, Bill Gates asks Sony. "Where is your god now?"

Mike, did you guys have to get in the reserve servers? GameSpot, IGN and like 30 other sites went down in nuclear fire right after the announcement hit.

As a PS3 owner, this is my 1st Sony console, and as someone who has never played the Final Fantasy games, is FF13 really that big of a deal to be on the XBox 360? I saw over on 1up a lot of comments about no reason to buy6 a PS3 now, and Sony is now dead, but having never played the FF series, is it that serious?

Bungie.net has a countdown splash screen going right now with a few messages being looped.

One of them is "Final Notice: Bill Past Due"

Could be a reference to them being less than rosy with MS seeing as they single handedly made the Xbox brand a success, and they aren't bathing in golden bath tubs like the rest of the 360 higher ups. Bungie has more to do with the success of Xbox then MS does. Bungie is now an independent dev house.

Maybe that message means nothing, maybe it means they're bringing something to the PS3 and MS knew it so they bought into FFXIII

I'm not rushing out to rebuy a 360. Been sent 3 too many return coffins. Sold mine off months ago and haven't missed a good game since.

If you are thinking of Halo4 on PS3, Microsoft owns copyrights to Halo so it cannot happen. Microsoft kept the kids, the house, and the dog when they divorced.

Well, something like this doesn't happen everyday, so bear with me. I too am still dizzy after the nuclear blast and aftershock.

After all, what happened today is bigger than the Warner announcement in terms of impact on future course of history.
