    In the latest issue of PSM, they had an article on Devil May Cry 2, complete with pictures and info about the game. It takes place in a city now and you can jump from building to building, but there isn't much info on specific gameplay changes. The graphics look the same (if not a little better) but just the idea of another Devil May Cry game on a (seemingly) larger scale is good thing.

    Anyone else see this yet?

    I haven't seen anything yet but you are right, it would be a very good thing. The first DMC was a quite a hit so I wouldn't doubt there would be a sequel. Let's just keep hoping it's soon.

    Yeah, I got my PSM last week also, Morgan.

    I really liked the original DMC, and part 2 looks impressive.

    However, the article in PSM I enjoyed the most was that of "System Wars Over, Sony Wins." Yeesh.

    Sometimes I think $12 is too much to pay for that magazine every year.

    It's no wonder the world is populated with overzealous fanboys when even supposedly "professional" gaming magazines shamlessly cheerlead for their respective consoles and proclaim everything else to be crap. OXM is also guilty of this childish b.s., and frankly I wish there were a great multiplatform magazine that wasn't biased and aimed at kids. Sorry for straying off topic.....

    I wasn't too impressed with the first DMC game, because it seemed just like Onimusha just with guns instead of swords. Maybe the second will be better.

    When you get into DMC, you can see what makes it so great. Pure mindless action for hours apon hours, along with great graphics and a hot chick.

    While fanboy mags like this generally suck, I only read it for the information and pictures, not the editorials and opinions.

    Morgan,
    This game was a total favorite of mine, so I will check out this issue for the latest. Thank you for the heads up. So, Sony won, eh...that was a short battle :p) I would have expected it to last quite a bit longer [​IMG]
    Take care,
    Chuck

    Aaron,

    We're in agreement that it would take a miracle for Sony to lose this console war.

    However, it's difficult for me to say the console war (there's that phrase again) is over when it only just started.

    We may just be arguing over semantics here, but I can't see myself declaring a 'winning' console, or 2nd and 3rd place, for that matter, until further into all of the system's life cycle.

    I think that the console wars are more of an annual event starting in January and ending in December. For the year 2001, Sony won. I think they were talking more about the 2001 war, not the overall war.

    That's the way I see it too. Because when the GC and Xbox start pumping out their 2nd and 3rd generation games the PS2 is gonna be left in the dust because of its inferior hardware (yes, I know it came out a year earlier but that's just how it is). Both of the newer systems will have their system sellers while the PS2 will have to continue making due with their current user base (which is friggin huge already). The PS2 will have to struggle to compete with the games of the more advanced system as time goes on and developers get more familiar with them.

    The same thing goes for the PS2 but to a lesser degree since it's been out longer and developers have had a chance to do things that were thought impossible on it already like DTS and whatnot. The other two systems are already outclassing PS2 games and developers haven't even had the chance to do the things they've done with the PS2 with them. All I know is I'm gonna own all three consoles of this generation because there will always be a game that I want that won't be available on the other consoles.

    To be honest hardware really has nothing to do with the system longevity. In the past psx one over saturn(Saturn was moore powerful even though it did come out first) Also the psx also outsold the dreamcast. and beat out N64. And what about sega genenis. It took years for super nintendo to come out on top over that machine. Please lets not start another console war. I thought this thread was about DMC2(which I think will be a kick ass game). My point is whatever colsole will win will be the one with the biggest instal base. Nothing to do with graphics, 5.1 surround, HDTV compatibility, progressive scan. And right now the system with the biggest instal base is the ps2. Companies can make more money with games on the ps2. I am noticing games that where exclusive to the other systems even coming to ps2(although yes there will be a graphic degrade). But Xbox right now is not looking good. Yes it is a shame!!! but it is fact!! It is a real sad fact( I love my xbox). What you have to understand is yes microsoft has ALOT of Money. But So does Sony, and nintendo. They where not in finacial trouble( like sega was). They can all afford to ride it out. Besides by the time Xbox get's popular ps3 will be out, then xbox 2 right after that, then whatever Nintendo system!! It is a cycle!!! I say WHO CARES who is number One!! ENJOY THE GAMES THAT ARE OUT NOW!!!! This is as redundant as the DTS DD debate. At least there is a clear winner there. We all know the answer to that!!!! hahaa!!!

    Anyways Enjot the games for the system or systems you own!!! They all pretty much kick ass!!!! Regardless of how many polies, this or that system can push. remember Poly's don't make a good game. The gameplay does!!!!!!! BTW don't mind the spelling errors. it is late!!!!

    Does anyone know the release date (if it's been announced) on DMC 2?
