Videogame companies seem to have a problem telling a straight story... why is it so hard?
i can't believe people disagreed with you. EVERYTHING is about money today. EEEEEEEEEEVEEEEERYYYYYYYTHING! !!!!!!!!!! the only ones who disagreed with you just didn't get it yet, which is unbelievable sad. have you ever heard of the german "garzweiler"? ENTIRE VILLAGES got destroyed and built up again a few kilometers away because there was brown coal beneath it. the company RWE had enough money to do it - they build up the new villages complete with big houses, big gardens, swimmig pools and so on. people had no choice but to agree to live there. can any of you imagine how UNBELIEVABLE MUCH MONEY they are getting out of this???????? money rules this world. period. it pisses me off, as it should piss all of you off. but the majority doesn't even get it .................... why do you think bush wanted to enter iraq??? because all of the DANGEROUS weapons of mass destruction that DIDN'T EVEN EXIST of because of the dictatorship?? no, fellas, because of the oil. oil = money. money = influence. money = might. might = everything. => money = everything. get it fellas.
Same reason politicians do. They make lots of money promising what they know cannot be achieved. People will forget when the next cool promise is made.
Why does Sony lie to their knee padded lemmings about 4-d gaming, in game music,next gen starting when they said it would,that people will work extra hours for the POSs3,about the ps2's console issues,delayed game releases,superpowerful hardware........when most multi-plat games are superior on the competitions hardware,and a bunch of other sh1t? How many licks does it take to get to the center of a tootsie-roll pop? Stupid Sony fan crack lickers. tom
you should ask that question to sony because there good at lying
such a predictable little child
The Xbot PIGS are not the scum of the industry. Wow, you were right, Puto Pig! We are good at lying! MWAH-HA-HA-HA!!!
Microsoft can't help it!!! :D :D :D
a fitting counterquestion would be: "Why do internet nerds and bloggers believe that they deserve special information any time they have a temper tantrum" or "Why do bloggers write bad articles when nothing noteworthy happens" I mean honestly, they complain about bungie writing huge parts of Halo3 from scratch instead of simply using Halo2 and switch a few textures???? And thats evidence that developers lie? Ding ding ding, braincheck, the development WAS running splendidly then, that was a fact, and they rewrote a huge part of the code to make something new for V3, thats ALSO a fact. Not a single lie spotted so far... Do they actually hope that developers stagnate on some random spot and stop getting better just to honor a statement that was perfectly true when it was made but has been overtaken by the progress now or what? And only cause the Sony devs won't go into detail what the multiple reasons for the removal of the ingame XMB access from the DEMO UNIT firmware before launch to the real retail unit firmware are they are "lying"? Not telling some retard something is a lie nowadays? I guess the Bloggers managed to get above themselves in their perception of reality, NO the world does not turn around a handful of bloggers, neither do companies provide indeep details of their company secrets only to make some minority guys feel better. The blog yesterday was a joke quality wise, but this one managed to go even lower and now stands as an example of how to insult people at random for no reason. They even manage to DEMAND a release shedule, detailed technical analysis on what the firmware developers are doing and more stuff that is just plain non of their business. I do agree that it would be convenient to have ingame access to the friendlist and message service, but everything else is completely pointless. The official US blog already hands out more information then ever before. But it seems some people need to whine and biatch about a lack of information no matter what. Already this post is about 10 times as long as the sorry excuse for a blog deserves .. me out.
agree + bubble couldnt have said it better i really can't understand why people carry the mentality that just because they pay 60 bucks for a videogame, the industry would owe them with inside information, free content, features of firmware updates etc. you guys are offered a service by the industry when you get those informations stop DEMANDING them. Actually im pretty shocked how much effort this generation puts into gamepolitics then into realworld politics, try to project that engagement onto your realworld that would be awesome.
...Ask Micro$oft! ;-D
There is a difference between lying or being vague, telling the truth or being direct. While I do not think game companies lie intentionally, they are vague on purpose. To be wrong undermines the company's legitimacy, can turn into a PR nightmare, and leaves the door open for the competition to look better. While they are telling the truth, they are just vague about what they say for PR reasons... what people really want is for these companies to be direct with the customers. Good luck getting that though...
cause the truth hurts
That not one single solitary Xbox had suffered with the RROD !! Now thats lying to the world !!!! And the Xbots bought it and then they started lying to everyone else sayin " i aint ever had the RROD !! Infact i aint even heard of the RROD" The jedi mind trick only works on the weak minded Thats why i've got a PS3 and thats why the dumb BABOONBOTS have an Xbox
Seriously, I know how it seems that way but people complain because they care. Money is one of those things that developers want. They want hype to generate intertest. Just after hype reaches it's apex then things suddenly change. I'm a member of MORPGS and sent several complains about game design. Stupid things the need fixed bad. Do devs care if I complain probably not, because their to busy nerfing what makes the game fun. Hype some new features and put them in. People start enjoying the game and the hype created by them is a huge success. To good to be true after the first month bam all those great promisses nerfed we need to farther balence. Saddly if they wouldn't hype things people wouldn't complain about them lying.
You are considered a consumer, not a fan. All that matters is that you buy the product, nobody cares if you like it.
SONY are the worse, they had PC's hiding under PS3rds pretending to play games that were actually videos! Sony lie to their fanboys all the time and they take it. M$ never lies. They might have crap hardware, but they don't lie. HA HA HA HA!
Get a sense of humour ok there you stupid BABOONBOT And whats with the "HA HA HA HA!" Are you trying to do an evil laugh like King Kaz Or are you just laughing at your own little silly girlie joke's !! Either way your a First class King Richard the 1st (D!ck Head) Laugh now you Little c0ck ring wearing goth
I don't really care about game companies lying to me but I do care about my government lying to me...
Yeah "The Man" is hiding stuff from us.
Sony is easily the worst when it comes to lying. 120 fps, 4-D, blu-ray is needed for gaming, PS3 is 10x more powerful than 360, ps2 will have "Toy Story" graphics, KZ2 cgi vid claimed to be realtime,....
Microsoft doesn't advertise Windows crashing ot Xbox 360 RROD on their respective boxes.
No, that's you Sony Protection Group losers job. I don't see sony bragging about the recent rash of defective BR drives showing up in the 40GB ps3's.
Showing a picture of YOURSELF in your Air Force years to make fun of "us" Sony Nazis is a sure sign that you really are sinking down to all-time lows! Which makes me wonder: What happened to the Air Force's slogan "Aim High"? Guess they made one mistake of "Aiming Low" in your part... Talk about self-deprecation!
Ah my friendly neighborhood SPG stalker is back : ) I included a sweet message and a pic of you in your SPG uniform.
@Genuine/Bluebrad1974/(insert "other" multipile accounts here) And oh, thank you for letting me "own" your retarded brain over and over again! Also, thank you very much, (probable)proud receipient of the Air Force's "blanket party", for depicting me as Solid Snake and Kyle Reese in your pic!! Too bad I was originally expecting you to pop up a picture of a Waffen SS personnel, but you were retardly (as expected) stupid enough to give me "compliments" instead! So what's next?!? A picture of me as Lord Vader? Hell, I'll take that as a "compliment" too! :)
Oh your welcome, even deranged SPG losers like yourself are people too. But don't take that personally, I'm sure you can't help it.
I agree with (almost) everything you said. I just wish people would stop bringing up "Oil". Iraq is FIFTEENTH on the list of oil producing nations. The have oil, but no way to refine it. The price of oil is set globally, so we have no say there either. Not to mention the rest of the world is not going to sit by and let us take their oil reserves. We haven't taken a drop yet, when is it supposed to start?
oh so true
Actually, OPEC has great power over oil pricing and its sole purpose is to serve its oil producing members. It's member produce the majority of oil that is sold today and can control supply.
they all just care about money
EVERYBODY LIES!! Your girlfriend lies, your teacher lies, your parents lied to you about Santa Claus, your best friend lied about him and your girlfriend, your car mechanic about your car "problems", your...
Microsoft has made a career off of trashing their customers by blatant lies combined with shoddy services. Starting from Windows to XBOX and anything in between, every Microsoft product has been universalliy shunned from the general public. The only survivors of this are the Microslaves who blindly follow the mind control methods placed by the slave driven Microsoft Corporation. Dark Sniper belongs to a company who truly cares about their consumers and has a successful track history of producing the best hardware and software in the market. Sony. Not once has Sony lied to Dark Sniper on supplying him with the greatest hardware in PLAYSTATION® 3 and products with it's supporting software. With PLAYSTATION® 3, consumers are starting to see the premonitions Mr. Kutaragi had planned for the system. Games such as Heavy Rain will bring in the true 4th Dimension in graphical capabilities and the action packed Twisted Metal will run at a breakneck 120 frames per second. It's time for Microslaves to wake up and smell the lies, Dark Sniper will forgive you for the sin of believing the Microsoft hype. The only step is to Welcome Chang3, Jump out and then Play B3yond. Only then will you truly experience what living really is. WELCOME CHANG3, $niper
Like when the president of Sony told IGN that the original Killzone 2 footage was REAL TIME? Don't believe me? Check out the IGN interview of the E3 two years ago, he plainly says it halfway through. "Was that in game footage?" YES, it was, we've just ben holding out because of the media circus.
