Bitter disappointment, LEGO style...

Postby Funnyham » Fri Jun 25, 2010 9:15 pm

I have anticipated the new Harry Potter Lego game for nigh on two years. To avoid disappointment, I checked and double-checked Wikipedia, and yes, it definitely said (and still says, at the time of this writing) that it would be released for PS2. Hours of scouring the internet desperately later, and it transpires that it isn't. Dreams shattered...

Yeah, I'm disappointed that it's not for PS2 too. I was really looking forward to playing the game. Although, I'm afraid the PS2 itself is and has been fading away. This year, I believe there have only been two new PS2 games so far. Time to adopt a new system. :wink:

The new Xbox 360 is really nice. If you're looking for a console, I suggest that.

I'd actually go with the PS3 or Wii.

The PS3 has more than just gaming potential. It can serve as your multimedia center. With the proper software running from a computer, you can get it to play just about anything you can find(I've only had issues with multi-audio MKV files) without having to copy it over or pay for it(including Hulu & YouTube). Add a Netflix account, and you can 'rent' just about any movie or TV show you want.

The Wii is nice as it is party & kid friendly. The PS3 & XBox are catching up, but the Wii is already established and has a lot of fun games to play with multiple people, none of which have to be over the age of 5 to play well & enjoy.

I have a PS3 and a Xbox 360 elite. I would defiantly recommend getting the PS3 for more than one reason.
1. - The PS3 has better graphics.
2. - The PS3 is more reliable. (I've never actually had a problem with my 360 but just in case)
3. - The PS3 has Blu-ray (I think thats how you spell it. :))
4. - The PS3 has free online!
5. - The PS3 has Uncharted and Uncharted 2. (yeah the 360 has Halo but Uncharted is better)
This is just my two cents.

You know taht's the problem with gaming systems. You spend like, a year saving up for one and when you finnaly get it it turns out they already came out with a newer version and products for the one you were saving for are discontinued so you need to start all over again.

Then you haven't been paying attention. There are six years between each of the three Playstation machines, and games were/are available much longer than that.

I felt that way when they never released COD 3 for PC...
