Our panel talks about the mighty Microsoft and what it will take for them to get to the top
Patcher is HILARIOUS. My PS3 games kept freezing so I went out and got it for 360. But what happen when the 360 kept red ringing? Did you go back to PS3? Hmmm
TBH the red ring thing kinda stopped after the Jasper 360s (65nm) came out in late 2008, and that was nearly 5 years ago now. I hear ya though. I dunno what Pachter is talking about with games freezing on PS3 and not on 360. Skyrim is the only major game I can think of that had that problem. ...well I guess Fallout 3 and Oblivion kinda had the problem too. Maybe Pachter really loves Bethesda's stuff.
I never really had a red ring, but did sell an Xbox 360 that shortly after did red ring. I never really experienced game freezing on my PS3, but I didn't use it very often. It is practically pristine. Consoles in general especially first generation is likely to have some problems. That's a given. If you are in the US, byy it with your credit card and your warranty is doubled up to max 2-years. Check the terms on your credit card, but most do this.
The Red Ring stopped when they stopped making that god awful original console. If you worked in retail you would know this. I was even laughing at a guy who came in to buy a 360 again asking for the Serial numbers so he could get the Jasper. He was back in 3 months later for a replacement yet again. Microsoft weren't lying when they said in August 2010 that they fixed the Red Ring issue (the slim console being out 1 month at this stage). They will never get to the top with Xbox One. Kinect gimmick won't work again, there (hopefully) won't be multiple purchases of the consoles from insane people, there is just a teeny bit of bad PR that has damaged the name since March 2013 and lastly the 360 had a year headstart in the US and a year and 5 month head start in EU on PS3. The 360 had none of these things and PS3 still is beating it in global sales.
the Bonus Round panel doesn't know what to make out of the XB1, the same feeling the majority of the gaming community has.
So the issue is mainly the price. They said that Microsoft could sell cable subscriptions and could sell units that way, but you are going to have either convince people to enter a contract for cable or upgrade what they already have. When I go to GameStop, I'm shopping for games, not cable subscriptions. Microsoft is right that it might have been a bridge too far. Still something like this could happen in the future. I wouldn't be surprised if Sony tried something like this with their upcoming TVoIP service.
Why did nuke get 6 disagrees for that comment? People just love to disagree with anything on the website.
Yeah Pachter is a Xbox fanboy. That little story of this unnamed game that he played on his PS4 but kept crashing but he switched to 360 and it worked perfectly! Who is he trying to kid? I just wish Geoff Keighly pulled him up on it. Pachter is of a certain age that remembers Japan as being the enemy and it has poisoned his ability to be detached so he is fiercely patriotic towards Microsoft. The PS4 is set to sell more units than the XBOne at launch and it's killing him!
he cant be much of a fanboy as he is preordered the ps4 and not the xbox
Well the bone is the one if you don't mind playing in 900p, and having a "window into the living room" information gathering mic and camera watching and listening at all times. If that sounds great to you then the bone is the one for you.
its ALL about the money dude. Patcher or anyone else who have any dealing with MS would lie to make something look good. in REALITY its not.
I think he's just being really picky. Besides Bayonetta and Skyrim there really aren't any games on PS3 that had major problems. If a game crashed or freezes at launch, there's a patch that will fix that. @Ulf Yeah I think he does. I heard he's a big fan of Fallout.
I can't wait for both of these systems to launch so these articles start to go away and it becomes all about the games. Buy whichever system you like, whichever fits your needs, and be happy.
You hit the nail right on the head. All that matters once these system launch is the games. I am quite happy with each consoles lineup for launch. Bring on November and let the gaming begin :)
microscam problem is they are a bunch of corporate types used car salesmen and not real gamers . M$ are marketing guys not real gamers the think gamers go for gimmicks not gameplay.m$ think selling game console is the same as selling soda . microscam is hiring a new CEO the CEO of ford . cars are not computer technology ? sony gaming is run by real gamers like mark cerny .
Simple answer: No
Yeah, it's the one going to the scrapyard.
...ps fanboys and all the hate...any positive xbx article must always have more to it but with the ps4 it is always as it is...im just glad that majority of gamers dont make their deceisions based on ignorant and biased fanboy comments........smh ..getting an xbx1 day 1 though...a ps4 will most likely come in later .
It's just the fact that any positive X1 or MS article or comment they automatically take it like it's a personal shoot at Sony or themselve for some reason, like they work at Sony. I really don't understand it but if I did, I would be one of them so I'm glad I don't get it.
lmao at your comment.i totally agree with you..its like they stay up all day just waiitng for any positive xbx article so they attack like a group of hyenas.... your last sentence made me laff so much..that was hilarious man reminded me of the movie "the host"....lol.
So a fanboy complaining about fanboys. Nothing new here.
hicken why are you even here?....you dont see me on ps articles bashing ps or foolishly defendn xbx or in xbx articles bashing ps4...thats a job for the fanboys like you are doing now...so kindly go start up some trouble elsewhere bro..i wont be dragged into that.
You don't have to constantly put down the competition to be a fanboy. Blindly defending your choice is just the same, and your unwavering loyalty for Microsoft leaves no room for criticism. Guess what that makes you? Yep: a fanboy. As for what I'm doing now, I'm not bashing MS at all. You jumped to conclusions. And jumping to quick, erroneous conclusions is also the sign of a fanboy.
"Blindly defending your choice is just the same, and your unwavering loyalty for Microsoft leaves no room for criticism. Guess what that makes you?" Where does he blindly defend MS? And what is his unwavering loyalty to MS. Just because he wants a Xbox One. You seem to have no problem with anyone who wants a PS4, but anyone who wants a X1 is blind and has unwavering loyalty. And he can't be that loyal since he actually says he will get a PS4 down the line. Again, all you do is accuse and label and everyone tells you the same nonsense. How unfortunate you can't see this. Does this make you...blind..?
@hicken smh.....dude you got issues...im actually getting both consoles eventually but at launch its going to be the xbx one..if you have an issue with me defending ms maybe its cos i actually like all theyve done with the console...looking forward to nov22..nothing can change that dude..so if im a fanboy feel free to hide my comment so you dont have to see them....ok? @maniacmayhem thanks bro.. couldnt have said it better..hicken has always been this way but i am done explaining myself to everyone on n4g who seems to have an issue with my console of choice...it wont change so they need to deal with it.
With your every comment, it's support of Microsoft. And if it's not that, it's condemnation solely of Sony fanboys. Any bad new of any sort about Microsoft is dimissed out of hand by you. You even go as far as to support MS fanboys/trolls, even when they're blatantly wrong, like here http://n4g.com/comments/red... Basically, there's no such thing as something that's negative about Microsoft and is also true, in your eyes. Your comments reflect that perfectly, which is why you back up people like corvus and JokesOnYou, even when they're wrong. @maniac: It's perfectly up to you do do and say whatever you want. You can choose to be blind to the words of your fellow MS fanboys if you like; I can't force you to see what they're doing. Anybody can say they'll get whatever console down the line. If you seriously can't see why someone woulc consider cristocolus blind in his loyalty to MS, you haven't paid any attention to his comments. I mean, I can't do it: can YOU find a comment where something actually bad about Microsoft or the XB1 got a response from him that was anything other than "Fanboys always blah blah blah?" Cuz that's all I see. You don't believe I have any interest in ANY Xbox; how the hell can you turn around and blame me for thinking somebody who's so heavily pro-MS won't really buy a PS4 even though they say it? I never claimed to be impartial, not for one minute. I heavily favor Sony. But I don't defend them when they do dumb shit, nor do I needlessly bash Microsoft... though I guess it would look different to Microsoft fanboys like yourselves. In any case, I think it's ironic that it's only the hypocrites ever calling others hypocritical.
Dude don't even bother with them. If they're willing to support an anti-consumer corporation who doesn't have the best intentions of the industry or its gamers in mind, and If they are sided with other fanboys and trolls whilst condemning a certain group of fanboys, they are beyond any kind of logical reasoning. Never in my days have I seen a group so unwavering and supportive of a company persistent in its anti-consumer measures that wants nothing more than to control every manner of a console that belongs to them.
You and Digital Raptor deserve each other. The pure [email protected] that comes off your finger tips and on these posts is beyond amazing. @Hicken You seeme to have wrote a lot without saying or answering anything. How is he, Christocolus blindly defending MS? Just because he wants a Xbox One? This is him being blind because of his personal choice? And then you link to a supposed rumor? Like that is all the more credible to your ridiculous claims? And should I point out and link to how many articles you and your fanboys dismissing any bad ps3 news as "MEDIA BIASED". Remember those little fun words whenever something bad was written about PS3 or Sony. How about whenever a ps3 exclusive gets less than a 9 or 8 and this whole site goes into rage overtime. Where are you calling those people blind or whatever else. No, you are right there screaming the media is biased. I love how you Sony fanboys throw around that a fanbase is so unwavering and supportive of a company and at the same time do the EXACT SAME THING FOR SONY. That is the most mind boggling part of my conversations with you and looking and DR's posts. This is where all the "hypocritical" notions come into play when dealing with folks of your mentality.
personally for 429 pounds a camera i will not really use and TV content that only benefits Americans NO, if and when they offer a kinectless box with some UK cable functionality at a decent price.... maybe
