"Currently in North America there are more than 3.3 million registered PLAYSTATION Network accounts"
WRONG! 3.3 million Europeans registered using the American store because there is nothing available to download in Europe.
Surely IP address shows where you are, regardless what your account says.
@how many ps3 owners do you think knw how to obtain a psn account from other regions. I can bet its probably in the minority? Meanwhile i like the sounds of "monster" titles GT5, GTA4 and MGS4. I am predicting GT5 despite being a "demo" will come close to forza sales maybe not surpassing but should at least sell 2million worldwide, a testament to the power of the gran turismo series. I also noticed sony didn't mention killzone 2 under their monster titles for 2008? Are they losing faith in their own software or is this title no longer marked for a 2008 release. Only time will tell
i doubt killzone 2 will sell like those "monster" title you listed above. Theyre all proven games...killzone isnt. And Brian wants 1 bubble at the end of the day
you are an eyesore.i'm new
to this site,but man,you must be the most crap posting individual
i've encountered.and i've read only 3 of your posts.what's your point?
maybe you're just here to have some fun,but if ever there was a most stupid member of the month competition,i'd give you my vote.no one,not even the biggest ...boy could say something so unintelligent.
had to get this load off me.
ps:try to disagree after reading the comment,not because you are hunting me down.
Let's be honest here. Duke Nukem Forever will be released before Killzone 2. They just can't get anywhere near that fake CG trailer they showed in 2005. I mean the game has been in development since 2004.
Ignore him...he just wants attention. And trust me there have been far worse fanboys on this site...let them disagree all they want
worse,but at least what they said made sense.
even you make sense compared to this sctroumpf.
this brian peppers dude is just a fanboy making a new account to stir up trouble. since you're new here, there's a nifty "Ignore" button under everyones avatar you can click to filter out delusional idiots on this site. i don't use it though, as i like reading fanboy rants
Brian go back to YTMND where you belong you pedophile.
i'm just going to do that.just had to get
a load out of my chest before.
Good news for Sony and the PlayStation brand
Bad news for developers, as people continue to only buy games on 360 and Wii.
PlayStation total software revenue in February was $247 million, 32% and 5% higher than Microsoft and Nintendo respectively
I like rubing facts in fanboys faces
Brian in denial. You should seriously be in the Open Zone. Get out.
Mr. Potato is just including all Sony products.
So I guess we should start counting Windows Live games or hell even Windows OS's into the software count.
lol brian pepper spaming again. any who, the PlayStation family of consoles is strong in sales. Maybe with all that money they'll buy more studios or projects.
I hope so... lol they make alot of money so why not ?!
Having outsold the 360 for the second straight month of 2008 and with GTA4, GT5P and MGS4 just around the corner...plus the tremendous value of the PS3 now that Blu-ray is the high-def format of choice...not to mention the hot sales of the PS2 and PSP...Sony is about to DRIVE MISS DAISY WERTHAN on home....
didn,t pepper head read the stats and this is in N.A,360 is getting raped in the eu hence the price drop 4 to 1 to the ps3 last time i heard it was 3 to 1 in jan these stats were backed up by sony
microsoft did,nt disagree
its gears verus resistance2 the 60 online mode you dream about will gears have this hell no dvds can,t handle that data
im curious as to how many 360 owners bought new systems because they simply gave up on their current 360's RRoD.
There's story were fanboys rather just buy another 360 than send the old one back and forth in the mail.
I wonder how many PS3 owners bought another one, with so many Blu-ray disc read errors happening.
is a unit sold why argue semantics?? Do that in the Open Zone.
Gears of War 2 will be the end all, say all game. Period.
Gears of War 2 will be the definitive shooter of 2008.
Ninja Gaiden 2 will be the definitive action game of 2008.
Fable 2 will be the definitive RPG of 2008.
if halo 3 could not do it whats gears going to do
definiting titles of 2007, yet all three fell flat in terms of critical success. Both succeeded very well in their respective customization systems, but not actual technology or gameplay.
I don't see Gears of War 2 doing anything revolutionary; same with Ninja Gaiden 2. The hardware is just too limiting.
NG2 best action game of 2008?...yeah I guess, if MGS4 gets cancelled...
in this press release? That is one of the few games I really plan on getting for my PS3 and it seems like it's slipping into 09 or something. Lack of news or mentions makes me wonder.
its rumored to have a new trailer for this weekend in London...and with the website upgrades happening, a beta announcement is most likely coming pretty soon...
just like Warhawk...run the beta from about May to late June...then release in September...a certain other shooter from last year did the same thing as well...
it is still way too early to tell if the game is 'slipping' anywhere...its just quiet in a creepy way right now...hopefully the new trailer shows a whole lot more...
"The PlayStation brand generated the most U.S. retail dollars in the industry for the second consecutive month with $511 million in sales, 52% and 6% higher than Microsoft and Nintendo, respectively."
Sony is actually making twice the amount of revenue of Microsoft, and just slightly more than Nintendo, which is pretty damn impressive. I think people are making too big a deal out of the fact that Killzone 2 wasn't mentioned in this press release. Honestly, how many titles can they mention. It would suck if it got pushed back into '09 though, since it would make for a perfect holiday 08 release. I still have faith though. What I really want to know are how Eight Days, White Knight Story, Coded Arms, The Getaway, God of War 3, and Socom are coming along.
I'll give him one thing..he's tenacious...trying real hard. I guess you may have missed the memo, Peppers, but the fanboy train came and went a LONG time ago. Some folks missed the train, but you just showed up months later and there isn't even another one scheduled. Nobody, on either side of the fence, is listening to the stupid crap that people like you say anymore. You're a dying breed, so give up the ghost on it now, and quit while you're behind...way behind. You're probably just a joker, which to be be honest, most of the trolls from way back when most likely were also, but good jokes become stale when used at the wrong time. Once again, your time has passed.
sold a couple million units with all that negativity
I can't wait for Gears2. And Mass Effect was pretty darn good. If you ask my opinion, it should've waitied until this year. I can only imagine the polish they could've put to such a great concept. Then, it could have been considered to be Bioshock's equal, a game deserving of the highest praise. Those 3 games kept me content for would become one awesome winter (only me and the cuzins know...that was one EPIC winter vacation of gaming)
