So many fanboys here, lol I'm glad I own and like both consoles.

Both have their ups and downs.

Oh, of course, an "entertainment console". Yeah, because that's why I buy a console...for the broad definition of entertainment. Look, while it's very nice that a console can play DVD movies, that's not the core reason why I have one. I get a console so I can play some awesome video games.

Sure, I've used Netflix on my PS3 before. Sure, I've watched a couple movies on it. But video games are my primary use from it. These guys from Microsoft are boasting that the Xbox 360 can do this and do that when they just make it seem like they are this jock who says that he can do great things, but in reality he falls short on many things.

'“Whatever gets announced on February 20th, the majority of UK consumers won’t know.” Ironically, the statement was tied to a message from Grimes and Microsoft attacking the negativity in the UK games industry.'

Keep up the good work appealing to our fellow gamers in the UK, Microsoft. You're doing dandy there. Seriously, though, if you look at Microsoft's strategy you can see that they are trying to appeal to every corner of the electronic market. Video games, television, movies, apps, sports, etc. The Wii U and PS3 do that, but video games are their focus. Microsoft is trying to cover all of their bases, but they lose focus on what a console should be first: a video game platform for gamers.

My opinion aside, you gotta give Microsoft credit for simply being so bold as to say that.
DigitalSmoke  +   746d ago
wtf are you taling about...
Saying stupid untrue shit in hopes to get dummy's to belief it, isn't bold but sleezy underhanded and false.

You looking up to that should make your parents proud.

The console wars are beginning. The fact that this hit 2008 comments which is a lot rarer on N4G these days, and the general tense atmosphere between Sony and Microsoft these days, well. Brace yourselves.

when Microsoft starts talking bad about a competitor, you know that they are nervous, They are so use to being a monopoly and dominating every market they venture into that they don't know how to handle it when things don't turn out that way. Linux, Android, Apple ect. are really kicking MS in the nuts, and by their statements about The Playstation, Sony might just need to be added to that list as well.

I'd be nervous too if I was Microsoft, especially with all of the rumored ps4 specs circulating about
elda  +   746d ago
I've always supported Playstation from day 1,I personally don't SEE any other consoles,Sony will bring it this coming generation.
Lifebanisher  +   746d ago

Hahaha this is getting better and better, i Love it!!!

With these damage controll articles microsoft have been cooking up, i get the distinct feeling that they think their in a world of trouble.
I don't know whats going on behind the scenes, but MS has been lying twisting and turning for years now, and its all comming to a screeching crash as these new consoles come out.

You can only fool a uninformed user base for so long.
hiredhelp  +   746d ago

+1 for sony from me and if anybodys arrogant and cocky it be MS they always have been.
largerock  +   746d ago
lolok microsoft.
Kran  +   746d ago
What we want, Microsoft, is more of a Games Console than an entertainment console. If you could just make 2 different things, go right ahead. But I want games. I can get all my other entertainment from my PC thank you very much.

Same slightly goes for you Sony... I see you trying to lure me in but it aint working ;)
RickHiggity  +   746d ago
The PS3 is a great console, but Sony was pretty arrogant when it came out.

Microsoft are getting more and more pathetic.. with the exception of XBL being better than PSN, the Blu Ray capabilities of the ps3 trumps everything else the Xbox does. Not to mention you can get your "entertainment" for free on PS3, the fact you have to be a gold member just to use features like netflix is facepalm worthy.
Game3s  +   746d ago
Shots were fired bang bang bang lmao
Kennytaur  +   746d ago
Blu-Ray alone makes the PS3 a better media player.
hadouken007  +   746d ago
If that really did make this statement, this just shows there character, there worst than the people siding with them on this. It's sad.
Wizziokid  +   746d ago
"Everybody Knows” PS3 “Isn’t as Good of an Entertainment Console” as Xbox 360"

TBH Microsoft if you are forcing people to pay monthly if they want to use the said entertainment features then it should be better!
whamlollypop7  +   746d ago
I'm glad that everybody knows that. Poor xbox they went from competing and beating playstation to copying the wii.
profgerbik  +   746d ago
What? I buy consoles for media? I have a computer for that sorry, it's much more efficient and it gets way more work done than any multimedia console ever will.

I could careless if consoles had any of that crap really, sure it's a bonus for those who use it but I never have. I play games on console, it is that simple. I thought that is what they were made for? Before they started trying to be mini-PC's.

The headline made my day... A pity that the author has no idea how much awesome time the PS3 gave to me so far with no end in sight.
OllieBoy  +   746d ago
Microsoft sounds scared. Throw millions of dollars at something, quick!
stage88  +   746d ago
Poor, tired Microsoft. Your day in the sun is over.
ichimaru  +   746d ago
I like microsoft products, but I wish they'd treat everything like they do thier "rumor policy" and just not comment
mrdeli  +   746d ago
Sony has Cinavia, which affects PS3 Media Server, and that sucks.

Ah ah ! Microsoft is loosing everything actually...Sony is far better than MS with the PS3 and all the exclusives planned for 2013 on PS3 ! It's a fact...Hey MS ? Where's the games on 360 in 2013 ? Nowhere !

The Durango will flop ! The PS4 is far better technically and Sony will produce the best exclusives on it...Durango won't authorize the second hand market,Durango needs to be connected to play something on the system,Durango will spy every persons playing a game with Kinect 2,Kinect 2 will be a mandatory thing...Big brother...

MS is the best shitty console maker...Remember the famous RRoD Ah Ah...

I won' buy this shitty Durango...My Home consoles will be the PS4 and the Wii U...Microsoft are losers...That's all !

Once again, N4G proves it's NOT a site for gaming news.. Thanks for this useless article that just divides an already polarized website, and thanks to the mods that approved it. Job well done.
Erudito87  +   746d ago
remember when ms use to say bs about how the 360 was designed as a gaming console(when hd dvd lossed) now its entertainment console because it can stream stuff through netflix lol ms are pathetic
GABRIEL1030  +   746d ago
No, because pS3 is better: Blue Ray, Free Online, new IP like Last of Us, Beyound, Journey, Uncharted, The console comes with HDD and the controllers with the battery and excelent online service like Plus.
