Yeah...no...only today, did another Bitmob article surface http://bitmob.com/articles/...

Clearly they're on an anti-Sony hate campaign active today. Don't give these idiots the hits. They don't deserve them.

fortunately a large portion of the earths imbeciles are restricted to internet ramblings in some largely unknown corner of cyberspace.
Them and they're opinions have no bearing on reality whatsoever.In some of these virtual madhouses,the year remains 2006.
We of sound mind and up-to-date calendars are indeed blessed.

stupid article

I didn't finish this article because I found no reason to. The Playstation brand is far from dead nor does it need to die. I'm sure next generation will be much better for that brand. In the end it really doesn't matter to me because I always buy all the major consoles. Wish these types of articles would go away...

36.7 millions 360 sold in the US compared to 22 millions PS3. However, most of those 360 are obviously replacements for RRoD, so if you take those out, I think Sony wins, if you think a little portion of those ps3 YLOD and were replaced. A very little portion of them, since the PS3 failure rate is pretty normal, unlike the first 360s.

It's obvious at this point that Microsoft made the 360 RRoD on purpose just to boost their sales. They can't win unless they play dirty.

What a pathetic and idiotic article. Really N4G you really do let too much rubbish to be shown on your web site.

"The PlayStation brand needs to die" - that's a typo, I think the author meant: "My Website Needs Hits"

Ps3 has the best exclusives. 360 mainly has timed exclusives

See now the brand isn't the problem, it's the people. As you pointed out, the PS3 sells well in the EU and in JPN, and it basically boils down to each nations individual mindsets.

As I live in the EU, and worked at a formerly large games retailer there, I can safely say that people who own PS3's are largely considered the 'core' gamers, whilst 360 owners are just people who play games, and a few 'core' gamers - however we all know that most 'core' gamers actually own multiple formats if they can afford to.

I also have American relatives, and when I travel to America I get stick for owning a PS3, even though I also own an Xbox yet prefer to do the majority of my gaming on a PS3. This mentality pretty much boils down to the idea that Microsoft is a US based company and therefore it's a damn good product. This is also reflected in US Xbox 360 advertising, it's a lot louder and brasher in comparison to it's EU or JPN advertising, and the PS3 (and Vita) advertising is much more appealing to JPN and EU audiences and less so in the US because it's much more subtle than 360 marketing.

Obviously this is a generalisation as people each think their own things, and are influenced by their own things. The vast majority of people who use N4G will be 'core' gamers, and largely wont be influenced by what some advert has thrown at them, they'd be more interested in what games are on each platform and generally how enjoyable they are. However the people who shun the PS3 are largely the people who don't care about playing anything more than the latest CoD, FIFA, Madden, and games of a similar ilk. Without sounding snobbish, Sony doesn't need those people, it can do without (and is), what it needs are more people like it already has, passionate gamers.

Seriously how can you hate or want the PlayStation brand to die? Although I may have been against some choices made by Sony and their 1st party devs this gen I don't hate or dislike the PlayStation brand in anyway and I hope to purchase a PS4 at least within the first couple of months after launch.

There'll probably always be a PlayStation console in my house since it's the very brand I grew up on (although I have gamed on other consoles PlayStation is still the best to me).

Noooooooooo!!! I don't want the Playstation brand to die. If it dies i'll be stuck with timed exclusives, shooters, punching fruit, and saving the same 2 princess for a living. :(

"You play video games?"

"Yeah."

"360?"

"I have a PS3."

"Loser."

I bet that "Loser" knows more about gaming than the 360 fan WHOM I WOULD BET MONEY ON only plays cod/halo and other fps simply because they are popular right now and he feels the need to stay socially relevent and be "l33t".

In reference to that conversation, the title of the article should be "People who don't know shit about gaming look down on the PS3 simply because they aren't intelligent enough to make their own opinions, and instead blindly follow the popular beliefs of others". Long title? Sure, but much more accurate.

No offense to anybody who is a real gamer and likes the 360. But honestly, in my personal experience, everyone i met who prefers the 360 to the PS3 doesn't know jack about gaming. They literally swear it's better just because it's more popular. When I ask them why, they say because it has more games. I ask them to name some games and I get Halo and Gears, followed by like 6 multiplat games. I name all the Sony exclusives and they say "Never heard of it, must not be any good".

Typical.

Opinion pieces should not be on a site called News for Gamers. It's really ridiculous
