Are PlayStation Users the Most Dedicated Gamers?

On PlayStation, 85% of those who played Retro City Rampage got 500,000 or more points, “meaning they played through a significant chunk of the game,” Provinciano noted. It’s a point total much, much higher than that earned on PC. (PS Vita, PS3)

kewl. considering that probably most PS owners got the game for "free" from PS+ they've sure invested a lot of time to it.

Long Live Play

Long Live Sony.

So hardcore they won't play a game unless it has good graphics...

lol jk...

Because of PS fans...we get more RPG's so always have to be thankful of that.

@ 3-4-5 Nah give that to the "Anti-aliasing, textures, more pronounced shadows, more colors, more grass, shiny water" Xbox players, next is Nintenduh with Wii U, but not for too long because PS4 and new Xbox are on the way, lol just joking.

That can be a reason, but it could also be that people bought and played the game on PSN, due to cross buy.

@ NeverEnding1989- Dude, if it wasn't for the critical praise & success that became Demon's Souls for being a very hard game, Dark Souls wouldn't have existed on your Xbox, Leprechaun Fanboy!

lol thanks :)

With PS Plus I find myself playing more games than i normally would have not even tried and that's great because some of my favorites are games that i never even thought of buying but know I have played and completed them, thanks to PS+, such an awesome service.

@MakiSaad2 - Yes, I do read the manga, but don't post spoilers for people who don't know this.

Lol Ezz2013 the dedicated ps3 gamer that has 9 games on his trophy list, if all ps3 owners are as dedicated as he is, Sony will be bankrupt

Nicaragua  +   508d ago
Well you have been online since DMC came out because trophies for that game are included, in which case all the other games should have synced too.
WeAreLegion  +   508d ago
Nicaraqua actually has a point. Have you not played many games?
WeAreLegion  +   508d ago
Hey! Ezz2013 messaged me, explaining the whole thing, since he was out of bubbles.

He uses two different PS3's. One of them he doesn't have a PSN account for. I hope that clears some things up, guys. ^_^
The_Infected  +   508d ago
Just to let you know guys...
Ezz2013 has two PS3s one slim and the other is the fat one. The PSN on his account belongs to the PS3 Slim which he just bought and that's why all the other games don't show up since he played most of them on the old fat PS3:)
insomnium2  +   508d ago
Why did Ezz2013 make a new account with his new slim?
Does this mean you are not a PS+member too Ezz2013?

I've seen your comments and I pretty much always agree but something seems fishy with this. My PS+ autosincs every time I've earned something.

Here's mine http://us.playstation.com/c...

I just yesterday tested out 2 resident evil games (they were sh*t btw) and it has autosynched during the night.

BanBrother  +   508d ago
Most my friends on Xbox are pretty casual. So this was no surprise. There are still the hardcore of the core, who get achkevements like Seriously 3.0 or complete FFXI.
WeAreLegion  +   508d ago
When you show your customers respect, you get respect in return.

Valve, Sony, Bungie, and many other companies seem to understand this.
thebudgetgamer  +   508d ago
I must be a 2600 user as I was dedicated to that long before any Sony console existed.

ajax17  +   508d ago
Another example of dedication to gaming. LittleBigPlanet 1 and 2. Yeah, actually CREATING games. That takes dedication.
Bathyj  +   508d ago
LBP2 is the most hardcore Ive ever gone in a game. I was designing stuff in Autocad then building it in the game.
hesido  +   508d ago
Yeah, I even did a 1:1 re-make of boulder dash, tho nobody played (wish I could say "lol" :) ). Took me countless hours, basically you have to parallelize a simple game algorithm to work in an object oriented model, in a way that things don't go haywire.

Shameless plug:

You get a bubble for your efforts and for even remembering Boulder Dash. Ahh memories.

Not even close to PC gamers, they actually have communities that stick with games for years.

I can go on any PC game I own and there is guaranteed to have people active and playing even if it is years old.

Were as playstation the community for starhawk one of my favourite PS online games is completely dead.
Veneno  +   508d ago
If only it were possible for mods on Playstation :( maybe one day there will b3 a game to play onmPlaystation that's moddable from a PC perhaps? Baby steps.
Larry L  +   508d ago
Unreal Tournament 3 has full PC mod support. Create on PC with the UE3 tools, cook for PS3, put the .jam on something the PS3 can read and import into the PS3 version of the game. It woks great, so long as you don't go crazy with uber high quality assets. Though you can use higher quality stuff than in the vanilla game, to the point that PhysX enabled levels worked....when the devs themselves said they wouldn't be able to.
Godchild1020  +   508d ago
I can still find a game in Killzone 2, Resistance 2, Uncharted 2 and those been out for years. BFBC2 is another. While they may have not been out as long as games on PC, that doesn't mean the communities don't stick together. Even in Burnout Paradise I can find other to play with.

And those games don't have mods. Also Starhawk was nothing like Warhawk, so why would the community move over to that game when Warhawk servers are still up?
GuruStarr78  +   508d ago
in my opinion, the reason so much playtime was spent on RCR was because it was on Vita in addition to the PS3.... Putting a game on a handheld in addition to a console makes it so much more accessible at all times.. hopefully other developers will take note of this and we'll get more games on the Vita and more cross buy games..
Veneno  +   508d ago
Devs hav3 already tak3n notice, but unfortunately I dont think they will ever make EXCLUSIVE games for vita when there are so many other platforms out there to put games on. Sony and some select 3rd parties will be the only ones to make vita exclusives.

No offense, you can't say these console gamers are more dedicated than those.... It's all down to preferences. I know some people who only play CoD or FIFA that's it. So stop this nonsense!
MultiConsoleGamer  +   508d ago
This is a pretty ridiculous assumption based on nothing. And it reads like a marketing line.

To really make an accurate assessment of who are the most dedicated gamers you would have to compare the most played titles on all platforms. And the obvious truth of my statement proves IGN is just preaching to the choir and blowing smoke up people's asses.

With that said the Vita / PS3 version is the best version for obvious reasons.

PC gamers are more dedicated DUH! So dedicated they die from MMOs... IRL.

fsfsxii  +   508d ago
Yeah, because they don't play shooters only and are open minded to all games.
MuhammadJA  +   508d ago
The only hardcore dedicated gamers are PC gamers! Consoles are for casuals.
Tito08  +   508d ago
You sure about that? PC which is consisted mostly on First Person Shooters & MMOs? Oh please, it happens to me this are the two genres I dislike.

There's little to no existent community for fighting games on PC compared to consoles, & the fighting game tournaments are played on consoles, not PC partner.

But I'm not narrow minded because I play other different genres, & play some Neo-Geo emulators on my PC, that's it.

Ya'll only better at mods & World of Warcraft. Console & PC gamers aren't too different from each other, so f%&k outta here.
