AntDaGamer discusses his feelings and opinions on the PlayStation 3.
What a well written article and the author speaks nothing but the truth. Everyone needs to read this.
There was nothing well written about that. It was just some angry fanboy rant. Like I honestly don't even know why he wrote that article. No-one doesn't even think the PS3 sucks...
@DarkBlood Pretty sure it's a 12 y/o boy.
It's a sony article... and it... it's positive?! WHAT IS THIS WITCHCRAFT?!
You can have fun with any of the current gen consoles just enjoy the games screw what platform it is on. If a game looks good I will want to play it reguardless of the platform. Personally if you can afford it whey not have all 3 consoles and never miss out on any game.
Who said it did?
The PlayStation 3 is awesome
I had three Xbox's. "HAD" I have 3 PS3's now.
I have 4, no big deal.
We all have our opinions, good and bad. It is best to be objective because we are all bias. Point out both pros and cons between consoles. Stick to what you like, if you have money to buy everything then do it if it pleases you. Other than this all these opinionated pieces are pointless, be it good or bad based on the reader. None of it matters, except for people to visit their site so they can group around and agree or disagree on something that doesn't really matter.
The article is trolling. And trolling HARD at that, don't read it. Its a huge waste of time. BTW its trolling PlayStation. The title is majorly Sarcastic. You may think its "defending" PlayStation but its making fun of it. As I said ignore it.
It's still 2012 right? If not, how did I go to the past? Why is this article even here?
I'm glad he cleared that up for us.
These opinion articles are getting annoying. PS3, 360, PC, Wii, and Wii U are all good. If they weren't they'd only be around for a year or two (I know Wii U just came out).
The PS3 doesn't suck. The 360 doesn't suck. The Wii U doesn't suck. The Wii doesn't suck. The PC doesn't suck. The Vita doesn't suck. The 3DS doesn't suck. The PS2 didn't suck. The Xbox didn't suck. The GameCube didn't suck. The PSP didn't suck. The DS didn't suck. The GBA SP didn't suck. The GBA didn't suck. The Gameboy Color didn't suck. The Gameboy didn't suck. The PS1 didn't suck. The N64 didn't suck. Only haters and trolls suck.
yeah, whats up, with saying the ps3 sucks... war sucks, and poverty sucks, and broken ps3 sucks... =D
I sometimes read N4G comments for laughs .....
My 60GB YLOD PS3 SUCKS
Lets not forget that I don't have to pay $60 a year to play online and use Netflix. I'm still amazed that Microsoft actually raised the price of Live by $10 and Xbox fans took it with a grain of salt.
Yes, but this article sucks.
Thanks for the input, Jeff.
get a wiiu and have innovation and future of gaming on your side
The author really needs to go back over basic English before publishing anything else.
The PS3's exclusive lineup is just mediocre this year. Next year will be fantastic though, with The Last of Us, God of War Ascension, Beyond, and Sly 4.
Well it's infinitely better than just having one halo game the whole year.
Some tool came into my store last week. He sold a 360 to buy a PS3...which made me happy. ^_^ Two days later, he sold the PS3 back. Then, bought a 360. While he was doing it, his friend asked him why he even bought it in the first place. The guy said he didn't know and that it was a stupid mistake. His friend was like, "Well, nobody even has a PS3. Everyone owns a 360."
What the FRICK was he doing with his PS3 that he missed his 360 so much? Did he not figure out how to connect it to the internet? Or that you can put games into it?
Well, some people are just not very bright. It's obvious that customer of yours was one such individual. There's no way I could trade my PS3 for a 360. Would I get a 360 IN ADDITION? Sure. But if I had to choose only one, I know which system I'd pick. Fortunately, I already have it. By the way, this article was crap. I couldn't even finish it because it was so bad.
I have a customer who is a die hard Xbox fan, and I have known him for years. I lean PS3 and I was telling him about the exclusives they have, and that he should get one. (I never told him to sell his 360, just get a ps3 along with it) and he finally one day bought it and I was so happy. However 3 days later he asked if he could return it because he just didn't get into it... lol in 3 days???? Ugh. Real gamers play GAMES! NOT SYSTEMS!!!
Is N4G completely broken for anyone else?
Has been for a couple years now ;)
Bubbles for that one. ;)
virtual boy sucked the big one lol
For a core/hardore AAA gamer ps3 has been the best console this gen. Wii no new core AAA IP's since ??(Must buy a wiiU), 360 no new core IP's(Must wait for 720 since 2007?), ps3 - The last of US, Beyond(Plus next gen coming.)
Truth I speak. Unless I am proved wrong?
I hope sony dominates MS next gen I tend to like companies that support new games that are not always shooters.
But atleast 2/3 companies have free multi-player like pc.
Cant remember someone saying the PS3 suck.
Nobody said it sucked...what was the point of this again?
the author sucks because he is not using his spare time wisely.
now who on earth said the PS3 sucked in the 1st place ? no Ps3 means console gaming f sucks. PERIOD
neither the ps3 or 360 suck, they have just been on the market far, far too long.
many years ago they were amazing, now every game looks low res, jaggie, terrible shadow work, screen tear, sub-hd, every game looks last gen
Of course it doesn't. But it sure contributed a lot to the high development costs, the glaring lack of variety, etcetera that defined modern-day gaming.
This is the same as those stupid pc gaming isn't dead articles.
PS3 is now almost even with the 360 and has great exclusives.
Most of all, it made Sony win the format war, and this is probably the biggest thing a console has ever made for its maker. If it wasn't for the PS3 we might be stuck with a crappy extended version of the DVD.
360 is also great, but it lacked of conviction; hard-disk should have been there from beginning and same thing goes for wi-fi connection. HD DVD should have been the game format.
Ummm, nobody said it did.
Who said PS3 sucked though?
They're the only ones among the big three that's still supporting their current-generation gaming console with AAA exclusive titles. No gimmicks, no family-friendly additions, no non-gaming related services, no nothing: just hardcore, mature-oriented, gorgeous looking video games.
If PS3 is considered as "a console which sucks pretty bad", I don't know what horrible, horrible things can be said about the other two companies which literally dropped the gaming support for their video game consoles, and don't even care about their core base anymore.
Sony's at least still trying.
If it sucked nobody would be talking about, it would have simply faded away like the Dreamcast.
I didn't think the Dreamcast 'sucked' but it was a failed console. When talking console hardware you hear MS, Sony, and Nintendo, not Sega.
To be honest, NONE of the consoles do. Now some of the games and content on the other hand...
Cant believe 6 years later even need articles like this.
duh.. Of course it doesnt suck.. Its the highest selling console around the world except the US.. The wii has the most sold overall & microsoft/sony are virtually
neck n neck
Who said is sucked?
Who said it sucked?
I'll stick to my PC gaming :P an Xbox nor a PS3 can stand up to my i7-3770K with and overclocked evga gtx 680 signature edition
When I made this article I was defending it true and through. Go look me up. I play Playstation 3 faithfully. I was playing it before 360. Anyone who thinks this is a troll..think again. I was truely speaking from the heart.
Both systems get to learn from their mistakes since the ps3 and Xbox 360 was the first step for consoles into the HD era and first full online console. When the next playstation and next Xbox release we will get to see who will truly win then
PS3 is still a great machine with great games.
1) Any sane person knew this years ago. It's not news, and the topic is so old that it's not even interesting.
2) If gamers actually cared about games journalism stuff like this wouldn't be at top of N4G. A proper story would be.
But because gamers like to bitch and moan about "bad journalism" but then go and click on the articles they're complaining about, stuff like this gets lots of traffic, thus encouraging more bad journalism in the future.
Its very easy for someone who isn't in journalism to say what is good or great journalism. Journalism is opinion. Journalism is expression. Journalism is creativity. Journalist can and will not be able to gain everyone's seal of approval. To trash someone's work based upon they way or words, their opinions, anything that makes them different in a career that needs those same traits is just not right. I spent a good amount of time on this article and I thank everyone who read it. Even if they opinions are different than mines. To personally attack me or any journalist cause of their opinion well that would be no better than me trashing you for yours without good reason.
Coming from a long time SOCOM player I must point out that SOCOM 4 is an abomination that describes just about everything that's wrong with the gaming industry these days. They took a great game and turned it into some generic shooter. Publishers just want to copy CoD and have no balls these days...
ps3 dose suck and im telling you that from my wii u , witch now replace my xbox360
Compared to the NES-PS2 era, PS3/360/Wii sucks.
@Stockpile Tom. I'm aware of what the veterans of the community thought. Not all of the veterans felt that way. I understand things must evolve, change and grow. Zipper tried that with Socom 4 and I just feel some people don't like change. The game's campaign was ok and some of the missions was a pain such as the last stealth mission. The game overall isn't "terrible" thats the reason I brought up Socom 4. I still play it ..and yes I played all the Socoms.
Its incredibly obvious why this article was written. Childish. The site must be in dire need of traffic.
Since I can't reply, I guess I will say my piece here.
This is easily one of the poorest things I've read on this site. From things like the "rumors" of their exclusives not being that good... it's not a rumor, since it's founded by logic and the simple fact that NOT every title Sony made was great and most of these people CAN justify their reasoning. Plenty of Sony titles were disliked across the board, be it Modnation, Karting, All 4 One, Killzone 3 (cause it wasn't as good as 2), Resistance 2/3 (cause it was more mainstream than 1), Resistance Burning Skies, and many others aren't that great and this is generally agreed (by hates, trolls, supporters, and critics) to be true.
Additionally, the overall point isn't that strong, nor is the article written in a way that supports it. Most people don't think the PS3 sucks, just like most people don't think the Xbox sucks either. Just because people like features from A and dislike them from B (and vice versa), just means people want it to be better. Sadly I don't think the writer understands this concept, nor does he understand that calling them "X-bots" is just discrediting him at every pass. (They should be called 360 gamers or something of the like) While I disagree with people saying this is a troll article or they're looking for hits, I just think this is some person that wants to make a difference, but clearly has no understanding of how to go about it or what our current mentality is.
uknow im a ps3 guy the xbox doesnt suck and the ps3 doesnt suck. What sucks to me is paying for xbox live when they really should not haft to. PS3 and psn may not be exactly as user friendly as xbox live but its free. To me i love psn and ps3 and from what i hear xboxlive and psn is like splitting hairs. I just dont understand why microsoft needs this subsription money it is just pure greed. They have billions and billions of dollars. Sony is hurting and thye still offer free online. I would even pay for psn if i had to. I mean sony has got to something to stop the bleeding but maybe things are not as bad as they seem. PSN is a cash cow for sony u ask me.
Both PS3 and x360 are great consoles.
Why would anyone think that PS3 or x360 suck? They are both unique in both ways.
Both PS3 and X360 got their own unique problems, unique games, unique online service.
You can't be wrong if you choose any of those two.
