You Know you’re a Playstation Fan When…

There are just times in everyday life that you know that you have your ‘PlayStation showing’. If you’re a fan of Sony and their always hot gaming consoles, it’s hard to hide the love you have for PlayStation. Because we are so familiar with how it feels to be at complete awe with our gaming consoles we thought we would put together an article about things only a true PlayStation fan could relate to and respect. (PS2, PS3, PS4)

You side with the PS4 when you havent even heard any 100 percent confirmed details about the next xbox. lol oh wait this article is actually in good nature... oopss
Snookies12  +   918d ago
Lol, well I know I'm getting a PS4, although I certainly won't side with it. I want to see what MS has to offer as well, and possibly grab up the next Xbox too. (Assuming a lot of these rumors aren't true about it.)
SegataSanshiro  +   917d ago
So you're 100% bent on buy a machine based on brand loyalty without even knowing what the DIRECT competitor's machine will be like? OK not a fanboy at all i see
Snookies12  +   917d ago | Well said
@SegataSanshiro - Did you even READ my comment? I stated it quite plainly. We've already seen what the PS4 has to offer. I like it, so I am going to be buying one. We have NOT seen what the next Xbox has to offer, so I am waiting to see what they announce about it. If I like that too, I'll buy that as well. So it makes me a fanboy to consider buying both a PS4 and a 720? Lol

That's the whole purpose of branding. You know what to expect when you see McDonalds sign and what to expect when you see Ruth's Chris Steak House sign.

@TheSuperior @SegataSanshiro
Dumbest comments ever. The only reason why someone would think this way, is because they're mad that others are buying a system that is not of their choice, plain and simple. Fanboyism.

With a brand comes familiarity. We've already seen a preview of the system features and games to come. I already know the type of games I'll be getting on the PS4.

It is not the same as coming to the conclusion that one system is better than the other. You can still prefer one over the other regardless.

I am a fan of Playstation because I have been gaming on Sony's systems since 1996 and have a ton of great memories. I love their games and their quality and they have never failed to amaze me. I also enjoy some games on the original Xbox and a few on 360 as well. I wasn't a huge Wii fan, but loved Nintendo much prior. I think being 27 and have played a ton of titles over the years, makes me a seasoned gamer and someone who knows what I like. I didn't start this or last gen so in my opinion, my thoughts aren't for an elitist one sided view, I just say what the ones and zeroes in my brain are thinking.

I've bought every Playstation platform every (save Vita, due to the fact I can't physically use it, or I would have one) and on this site I am a "Xbox fanboy", or so I've been told. So just having owned every PS console does not make you a fanboy. So as far as your comment, False.
lovegames718  +   918d ago
When you spend 80% of your game time on Sony exclusives. Yes exclusives still matter. Most my time is spent between Starhawk, Uc3, Res. 3, Mlb the show 13, Ni No Kuni and GOW Asc. Without these exclusives i would hardly be gaming.

When the first thing you do after you come home from work is turn your ps3 on and check your friends messages lol.

When you laugh every time you turn on your ps3 at the fact that you enjoy online games without having to pay a subscription fee lol hahahahaha

@ Hicken
What does your comment have to do with his at all?
SuperLupe-"Yeah coming from a one bubble guy"
Hicken-"So the first comment here is by a Playstation fan?"
Did I miss something?
Damn ol' hick you're on a mission I guess? Just got to prove those Xbots are worse than you right? I can see how you think.
Hicken-"Yea a may be a fanboy, but I'm nowhere near as bad as those Xbot clowns. Hell they started it!" It seems your mindset is like that of a bratty child.
Stay classy man.
Edit: also just knowing how you post daily is how I came to this conclusion, not just from this 1 comment.

When you can't even like multi platform games because that means admitting other platforms have good games, Bioshock Infinite and GTA 5 can't be good because they are not exclusives, your GoTY are always exclusives, and defend the exclusives even when you haven't played them
puamdefokejpn  +   918d ago
When you are aware, you are going to play a metric ass ton of greatest exclusives,..and that they are not afraid to take risk and experiment. And love greatest games in general.

Buts thats not a reason for liking the PlayStation brand, your a fanboy

Thats exactly how "the others" see us, I had a PS1, PS2 and currently have a PS3, the chances a very high that ill own a PS4, it may come across as brand loyalty, its not, I would of missed out on Heavy Rain, Ni Ni Kuni, Demons Souls, MGS4, Journey, I mean "come on" theyre AWESOME games, why would you want to miss them

Gears Of War and Halo dont do it for me, but because of that, im a "hater"

When you think Demon/Dark souls is one of the hardest games this gen. Also playstation didn't have the first metal gear, anyone who is a fan of Gaming,not just a console, would know this.

rainslacker  +   917d ago
True, but it was the first to have Metal Gear Solid. There is a pretty big distinction between the two. I guess you could say that Metal Gear 2: Solid Snake is the first solid game(although it differs on a fundamental game play level), but it wasn't released for any console until after Metal Gear Solid release(MGS3: Subsistence IIRC)

Fans of gaming would know this.
_QQ_  +   917d ago
in the article it says Metal Gear not MGS, even though they probably meant MGS. The original metal gear games are pretty important for the overall MGS story.
hopefully we get a remake.

rainslacker  +   917d ago
I don't really know if they're important. They're mentioned a few times in the Solid games. Been a while since I played them, but the first Solid game did kind of lay out what the story was going to be about pretty well, and character development was good.

I would really like a remake. I haven't played the first since it first came out.:) The 2nd though I didn't really care for too much, but both would be pretty interesting if they were remade with Solid's game play.

What isnt there to love about playstation. We get spoiled by sony. Same goes for nintendo & pc fans. We all get spoiled.

Cant really say the same for microsoft & the xbox brand. They dont get spoiled at all unless u consider being the only system that makes u pay for online and having the less library of exclusives an enjoyment. Kind of look more like getting used & abused is more like it.

I know its better to have competition but honestly sega did a way better job then microsoft when they had a console. Wish they would comeback & let microsoft go back to making windows. All that money but they cant even make their own games. Sega was more of a real challenge with great games.
Apocalypse Shadow  +   918d ago
you know that you are a PlayStation fan when you have spent the least amount of money, but obtained the most amount of quality content and features.

Be it spending less at the beginning on ps3 than a $1000 bluray player.

Buying PS+ and getting free content.

Playing online free and being able to use Netflix,hulu,etc without a pay wall.

Buying a large hard drive without being gouged for a proprietary one.

Having WiFi built in instead of a $100 ripoff.as even portables and phones had it built in too.

Playing acurrate motion gaming without spending $150 for "close enough and delay."

you know you're a PlayStation gamer when you expect QUALITY and VARIETY.

you know your PlayStation fan when you don't have to backpedal on anything other than rumble.because HDMI matters, hard drives matter, exclusives matter,more disc space matters and awards matter for effort.

clintos59  +   918d ago
Believe it or not but when ps3 first launched this site was ran by 360 fanboys and what eventually happened was they got tired of rrod & crossed over to the ps3 & now the dark days on n4g have converted into a home for ps3 & new converted members that now see the light in what they were missing out on. And n4g said, "Let There Be Light" & here we are today witnessing true awesomeness with sony, "Can I Get A Amen"? lol nah but seriously thats how it was back then. Oh how times have changed for the better.

When you realize that PlayStation generally has all the cool JRPG's that are available only on their console as Xbox 360 JRPG's didn't catch on like they have with PlayStation & Nintendo.

Enjoys free Online
Love SONY's First Party titles more than Microsoft's
Love that They don't charge to play Online.

I am a Nintendo & SONY fan bigtime but cause of PS1. I became a HUGE PS Fan and will be for LIFE. Still love Nintendo & SEGA back when they made hardware and were the shit.

MikeMyers  +   917d ago
1. When you feel the need to defend everything, even constructive criticism.

2. You label anyone a Xbot that doesn't share your same passion.

3. You can't think of anything they have done wrong.

4. You always feel the need to attack the competition.

5. You take what people say you don't agree with personally.

6. You will buy their products blindly right away.

7. You scroll through topics making sure nobody says anything bad about Playstation.

8. You enjoy bashing the competition more than actually enjoying your Playstation device.

9. You think every exclusive is a winner.

10. You are afraid to ever admit having issues with the hardware even if you did.

I started gaming with Sega Genesis on its late life cycle, then had the PS1, was completely BLOWN away by the 3D environments, my first game was MGS1 and RE1 and Crash, and i still remember the pain Psycho mantis gave me till i defeated him, 2 weeks of trying haha.
then moved to the PS2 and its the best console ever, had the chance to try the Gamecube which is an awesome console, also got the chance to play my first Zelda game on that system, incredible game, and moved on to the PS3 and i can say that the Playstation brand gave me the best gaming memories.
