Sony Playstation 3 still very hard to find but worth it if you can, not only for the gaming but also for the Blu-ray disk player....
The only thing good about this article, is the post underneath it.
agreed, strangely enough i just posted an article from gameindustrybiz raising some of points he did
I can appreciate the unparalleled, techno-beauty of the PS3. I think we can all agree that It looks Great (in the flesh)! That aside I find the article important simply for the fact at how many times the implementation of the blu-ray player often gets overlooked. I'm one of the "rare" heads who actually thinks the PS3 is a bargain but, oh well. And the power comparison to the 360 is a road left best untravelled. I respect the Wii and the 360, but I like browsing thru the "nxt-gen" aisle at Best Buy for BD movies. People look at you as if telling themselves, "am I in the wrong area?" -scratching their heads ya know..lol a/w I've got some really good BD flicks and they look Great on my TV. I won't be one of the people geeking out on burned blur-rays either. I pay for what I got. It's only civilized.
But I can't justify Blu-Ray being the next gen winner for sure. I'm sure it looks good but if BD flops, then what? So, unless you've gone beyond our current knowledge of science, physics, and surpassed Einstein's general theory of relativity, thus creating a time machine into the future, nobody, not one single person can say for sure which format will win. I'll wait for the Blu-ray/HD-DVD combo drive ;) Until then I'm satisfied with high def movies via Comcast on-demand/XBL HD-media downloads.
if bd flops, it can still be used for games, unlike hd-dvd on the 360. i really dont see bd flopping tho. it's being put into homes easier than hd-dvd with the 360.
PS2 will be dethroned by Wii, and DVD will be dethroned by PayPerView.
looks like people are finding articals talking about how good the ps3 is! Makes me happy knowing there is still hope for this news room. Anyway, while the blueray player on the system is a nice bonus along with the true backwards compatability of past ps1 and ps2 games. The new ones are taking their sweet time to come out. Granted you can't rush titles because then your left wanting. I just wish the killer games for ps3 would come out faster just a little bit you know
Totally matches the hype. For example: "All launch games will ship in 1080p at 120fps." "Resistance is running at 1080p." "PS3 games will be clearly superior to their next-gen counterparts."
Sony didn't ever say a thing like that.
You're still running your stupid sh!t, eh Caldera. Didnt people debunk your arguments yesterday? But you're still choosing to believe your own inaccurate statements eh? Ok man, go on being wrong for the rest of your life
Wow this review is really stupid. He did not even mention what the online gaming is like and how it stacks up to Xbox Live. He just says that its free. These are the things that piss me off about Sony. This idiot thinks the PS3 is superior. These people are not serious gamers they are hacks. I would challenge this idiot to PS3 vs. 360 debate any day. But the only thing that he would say is "Ridge Racer, Ridge Racer". Keep drinking the Kool Aid boys!!!!!!!!!
heh can't help but reply to this seeing it's the same thing you copied and pasted on another artical saying how good the ps3 is. So who kool aid are you drinking? You obviously didn't read the artical your just spamming junk. Well done sir (starcasm just in case you couldn't figure it out)
I don't think this guy is credible at all. His comment "The real beauty of the PS3 are the graphics and the controllers. This is what really sets it apart from the crowed." proves he doesn't know what he's talking about. I think almost all real gaming site have that have reviewed multiplatform games lower on the PS3 compared to the X360. This article is another example of lazy journalism.
I did not spam I cut and pasted my thoughts on the same topic. You Sony fans are really annoying!!!
They're about having fun. Why do you need to have this argument with him?
have been going on sense Nintendo and Sega. If your now learning this you must be 12.
I read the article and I am left scratching my head. Is this a gaming console or a movie player? I use my 360 for video games not movies so that HD-DVD will continue to sit on the store shelves. As far as the PS3 goes, I would want it to play video games. Does it play video games? There was hardly a mention of video games in this article. ..."Photographers should lean towards the PS3, while music lovers will want to stick with the Xbox 360. For movie buffs, the confusion is greater"...? Where is the word gamers?
I have no idea why you are getting mad! We have 360 vs PS3 debates everyday on this site (wether we want a debate or not) and the truth is there is no official winner! Its all about what you need/want in your next generation console! Its all a matter of personal preference you are acting like someone is personally insulting you! Some gamers prefer PS3 some prefer 360, this war will be settled around this time next year so all three companies have one year to make their claim! The one thing I will ask of you is simple: have you played or spent any extensive time with the PS3? If not what do you know about its online capabilities? What do you know of the differences between the 2 consoles? Please at least talk from first hand experience, I'm so tired of everyone taking the views of others and making it concrete statements! Do your own personal research and come with your own personal opinions!
Man give a damn about them xbot freaks, they just like 2 hate.. BRD is gon be the winner, people like 2 try somethin new and they gon feel like its more modern than then hd dvd, its like cds and when dvds come out, people wanted dvds cus they felt like something newer and more modern, same thing gonna happen now, thats a life circle or should I call the sonys life circle.. have u ever reconized somethin?? people say sony dont care about their comsumers, right!! that cant be right, when sony always try 2 give us the newest and latest things on the market(and even lose money on them, it costs them $900 2 make a ps3 and sell it 2 us for $599) they give us somethin the compatitors cant and wont offer us (money), this feels like the ps3 is on sale from $900 2 $599, which company let their selfs lose money just 2 satisfy us?? MS hell no they make minimum of $150 on every console people buy and minimum $50 a year for online gamin, damn thats stealin, plus if u want the HD DVD thing u'll have 2 pay for it, i think its $199, that like $600 and more 2 have a full 360 console (so why people is complainin) damn u humans *lol*
too much, too soon. In a few more years when the price of components is less, a PS3 will make more sense, but for 2006-2007, it just costs too much.
"This is what really sets it apart from the crowed." I busted out laughing. No surprise that some stupid idiot who can't even speak English is writing an article about the PS3. Obviously he has no clue about anything at all.
i think I may be getting a clue here. I never really tried to see the PS3 for anything but a game console. At the end of the day it is what Sony wanted it to be which is a total next gen entertainment center. Playing games is one of the things it does. I find it cool that games are penetrating every piece of hardware out there it means games are everywhere. We should stop bashing PS3 for being a mediocre games machine and start praising it for a next gen movie player for half the price that plays some pretty cool games. If BRay takes off this is the machine to buy anyone can see that. Sony took a huge gamble that just might pay off however it is quantity of features rather than quality of features. There is no way that the BRay drive is the same quality as the standalone units so a true next gen movie buff will pass on this machine as will a hardcore gamer. but how many hardcore gamers and movie buffs are there? This is the Casual tech heads dream machine. Sh*t thats me Now I want one.
I'm happy to finally see a fan of the PlayStation 3 see it for what it is. This is not a bad thing by any means. It is what it is. (ie. mediocre gaming machine/mediocre blu-ray player for the casual tech head)
i think its to late for the ps3.the console war already won the winner is the 360 i love it sony are the most big head company in history and i hate them for it.i hope they go under the big mouth argorant gits.
I smell jealousy comin' from a green xpired box freak..
You luv the PS3.
I think this guy sums up my opinion and alot of other people's opinion on the PS3 "By billytech posted Dec 4, 2006, 8:51 PM ET When a PS3 can stream live and recorded video from your Mediacenter PC,Have ANYTHING NEAR as good as the X Box Live online gameplay, the arcade classics from Live arcade, The ability to record TV shows and movies in HD without marrying a "Format", Play awesome games like Gears of war, AND work seamlessly with your I pod or Zune, Maybe, Just maybe I'll look at one to buy...when the price drops and it runs more than 10 months and will not read discs like my last three PS2's did. If quality meant ANYTHING to sony, I'd probably be interested. But at this point, DRM on audio discs, My laptops battery I'm STILL waiting for, and my past experience with their products leave me cold. Hello Microsoft, Hello nintendo!"
The PS3 can do all of that and more such as browse the internet and upgrade a hard drive! It can do everything you listed but play Gears of war, UT 2007 should be a good filler for that game though! Anyways I could careless if you don't want the PS3 but at least don't talk smack about something you don't know anything about! Stick with MS and enjoy your 360 no one is hating on you for that its your money and chioce! 1 question I have is exactly how many people even own a Zune or even know what one is? I seen it in the store but its not the Ipod killer some were claiming it to be! Point is you hate Sony! You know little about the PS3 and its capabilities! Because you hate Sony you won't ever yet the PS3 that's fair to say! But your comparison about 360 vs PS3 is not! Try it before you denie it!
My laptop can do that and it plays FEAR and Halflife 2 and its also has Rumble. My laptop cost only $200 more and its portable and has a 120gb hard drive. Can your PS3 download or play music while playing a game (NO). Your better off with a PS2, PS3 is this generation's Dreamcast. All console's have bad years xbox will have theres but its playstation's time to give us a lemon right now. Your only hope is that they survive this.
we already know that if you just want a machine that plays games, then this PS3 is not for you because of the price tag. i on the other hand, am a different kind of consumer than most of you. i am a media head and i love and will take advantage all of those additional features the PS3 provides. so to me, it's worth the price, but i won't be going out to buy one even if it's availible right now. like most newly launch system, comes errors and bugs. also, there's nothing worth playing aside from R:FOM. i have a feeling i'll end up buying a 360 before the PS3 or a Wii though. as soon as Mass Effects is released, im sold!
I've not a had as much as a baby burp out of my two systems, so stating that there are bugs - sure there are bugs in new model cars, planes, consoles, etc...but I think SNE has had enough console making experience over the years to keep things fairly under control with this system [PS3]. Burning batteries aside, I know there have been some isolated reports of people having trouble with their PS3 systems, but these situations are few and far between and SNE is quickly taking care of people's problems with bad merch., so I'm just saying (gamer to gamer) get it now and play! <A little Off tOpic> I own about 11 titles for the PS3 right now and haven't found one that I won't play over and over, (however, Genji's off-screen enemies gets on my nerves!! - still challenging and Sooo pretty though). I left a post script at the end of a post the other day. THe PS was regarding MobileSUitGundamCrossfire. This game got horrible reviews, but I find myself adapting to the controls and playing this game in earnest for a couple of hours at a time. It doesnt have the flashiest graphics or innovations, but the points/upgrade system is welcome and the action is non-stop in missions -- it's actually fun, yes fun! It's kinda got an old school (early 90's) japanimation feel to it which helps hou get through the stale mission briefs. a/w anyone whose played or owns the game on PS3 -I'd like to get your feedback on it. #12 - All in all I don't believe its a mediocore machine, nor mediocore game machine. It's anything but. The system is cutting edge and yes, I have bought into the "potential" that Dave Karraker spoke of - I think it's gonna be great. people will be buying Nxt-gen DVD's I see it more and more I go to BBuy, so the standard 'ol DVD's will slowly phase out. No matter where I go with my machine (I'm a mobile gamer) or who comes over to my pad, people stop and stare from the look of it alone. The machine plays BD movies w/o a hitch and it has been said many times that the BD player in the PS3 compares easily and in some cases may be better than current BD players on the market (here is an unbiased article): http://www.dailygame.net/ne... I've always felt that the BD player in the PS3 is actually a bargain compared to the Samsung, SNE, Toshiba, and Sharp standalones. Sure, I'm a gamer -- Love to game, but what's wrong with a little high quality BD player playback? ANd 4 the record, I've had a few of my lady firnds over and they love the way the PS3 looks. I've even caught a couple of them wanting me to "turn it on" even though they know nothing about gaming. When I tell 'em it has also has a built in BD player they gasp and then ask for the obligatory show and tell. Not saying that the helps get chicks in my bed, but puts a whole new spin on, "live in your world - play in ours". lol
if you want a cheap Poo-Ray player. I don't know why you would want a poo-ray player though, HD-DVD will win. HD-DVD ouputs better quality and the set top players are half the price, as well as cheaper movies and a better selection. The general public prefers HD-DVD as well. That leaves Sony developers producing games for another failed proprietary media format, which won't help with production costs. Any way you slice it, the PS3 won't be repeating the success of the PS1 and PS2.
That's where Nintendo as a publisher shines. Also, this site suffers from lack of females.
kingboy's a transvestite, does that count
the ps3, is a very satisfieng console! xbots are envy thats the reason they go mad. but before you talk sh!t about the ps3, buy it and use it! you will never say again, that the xbox360 is better than the ps3, because its plain wrong. ps3 is far superior hardware. period.
you need to stop before you have a seizure. i am not hating on the ps3. but are you 7. you are calling people xbots. that is real mature isnt it. i am sure you go call people in the mall xbots, because that is so cool. get a life

The ps3 is unable to stream from your pc. Hell 360 works better with sony computers than the ps3 does. Ps3 online is nowhere near the quality of xbox live. It doesnt havw any of the games on arcade and probably never will seeing how microsoft publishes a high majority of them. It is incapable of running Gears of War. It doesnt work seamlessly with ipods or zunes. It doesnt play music in the background. It doesnt allow you to download in the background. And throw in the fact that you need a 15 minute download just to play online which isnt relatively that good anyway and it has become evident to me that the ps3 is simply a rushed console. Ironic considering sony fanboys deemed the 360 a rushed console yet its actually their console of choice that was rushed despite an additional year of development on it. Funny how a poster seems to know more than the author of the article.
If quality and service means anything to this buddy, he surely shouldn't choose MS ;-) http://www.xboxcircle.com/n...
it was worth it.for those who are playing resistance(or demo-me),nba 2k7(me),genji(me),rr7(me again) or the downloadable motorstorm demo(ah yeah,me again) or any of the games,it was worth it. if your using the other capabilities of the machine(hmmm...me again),and are waiting for heavenly sword,motorstorm,lair and f1,then it was worth it again. if you're waiting for future games like mgs4,killzone 3,8 days,getaway,afrika(yeah afrika-just like shadow of collosus and viva pinata isn't for everybody),gt5,warhawk,ratchet and clank 5,and so on,then it was worth it. if you are waiting for multiplatform titles like spiderman 3,assassin's creed,fatal inertia,re5,etc,then it is worth EVERY PENNY YOU SPENT ON IT.JUST LIKE IF 360 OR WII WAS WORTH IT FOR YOUR GAMING NEEDS.PS3 IS LEGIT,and i can't stress this enough,"""AFTER FIRST HAND EXPERIENCE OF BUYING ONE""""
Being a gamer for all these years I have learned to appreciate and favor all systems alike. Sony being my top favorite for awhile. I have learned that the PS3 is alot of hype and is definately not worth the price tag and fights. This is supposed to be about games, how the hell do you drift away from what a system is supposed to be about to play blueray movies. I think MS did it perfect, they made it an option without cramming it down our throats and making us have to pay an extreme amount of money. I feel sorry for all the people that just cant afford the pricetag. I can afford it but im just not that excited about the PS3 right now. Even some of the experts at G4 all agree there is no reason to rush out and get one right now. They also are saying there is a very good chance that Sony will be creating software and not systems sometime in the future, kinda like what happened to the Dreamcast. Personally I though Dreamcast was a better system than PS2 but people bought into hype instead of the actual better system once again. The hype boils down to us Americans have to have it right now syndrome. I wouldve liked to see the PS3 impress me so I wouldve been excited to go get one, but it just is not worth it to me and most people I know. Unless you wanna make a nice little profit on ebay. I say if you are lookin to get a system for Christmas the 360 is looking to be the best contender. Think about it, all the games for the PS3 can be bought on the 360 and some of the games even look slightly better in comparison. This is just a fact people, i am not a fan of 1 system. Youve got a head start also and much more variety of games, there doesnt seem to be exclusives really anymore for Sony. Another thing to keep in mind guys. I can honestly say that the most fun I have been having is not on the 360, its on the Wii. That to me is what games are about, have some friends over crack some beers and get tossed while bustin out some Wii sports. People are missin out on what games are supposed to be about, do not forget who started games and what they were meant for. I think people tend to forget, it wasnt Sony that started all this and its definately not Sony that is the true contender either. Play all games and have fun, but dont just buy into something because of hype and what the media sells you. Too many followers in the world today enough as it is.
very refreshing. I agree with all your points except the Wii for now. I just couldn't get into it. The game I was most excited about (Red Steel) turned out to be garbage. I'm hoping something comes out for the Wii that changes my mind, or have I just become too hardcore a gamer? I was also hoping for something similar for the PS3, but I was aslo let down on tha front. I'm not gonna pay absurd amounts of money for Resistance and the promise of other Killer Apps. I had a blast last generation having owned all three systems, but so far I have not seen a reason to invest in another platfrom. Perhaps the Wii for my boys, but they do love the 360 now. I'm sure Nintendo will sell well becasue of their price and family appeal, but it's another story for Sony. After all that hype they deliver a product comparable but not superior to the 360. But try bebating with a fanboy...it's impossible. They believe every bit of hype. I had a coworker who swore the PS3 graphics were superior and Blu Ray was the high definition future. I asked if he bought an HDMI cable and he said no he was running the composite cables included with the system. So this must be quite a beast of a machine to make 480i look that good! Another fanboy with the rose colored glasses.
I own both a 360 and a PS3. Which is better for Backwards Compatibility? Well, the PS3 sure enough runs all of the old software. For all of those PS1 games I still have laying around. Oh, wait... none. But I threw in Metal Gear Solid 3, and this game looked better on the PS2. That is ridiculous. However, when I play Halo 2 in my 360, it looks the same or better. At a bare minimum, I don't have to wince at the NEW blockiness of a beautiful video game. Which has better online? Well, PS3 online is free. Xbox 360 is a little over $4/month. I will put this simply, sometimes you have to pay for quality. I have a few friends on my PS3 friends list. But when I went to play with those same friends on Resistance, it took a ridiculous amount of time to find them, because I had to ADD them to a NEW friends list. But we made it happen. We all got into a party, and we all had USB headsets plugged in...but no voice chat. Well, we typed our little messages expecting to have voice in the game. Nope. Xbox Live is more versatile and much easier to use. I won't even get into setting up my PS3 Online account. Better overall functionality? I will point at the Xbox 360's guide button and PS3's horrible excuse for a ripoff. When I hit my 360 guide button, I have access to music I can play in game, my friends list, my messages, and all of my consoles options. Do the same for the PS3, I can turn off the console, quit the game, or turn off/reassign the controller. Are you serious? I thought Sony was taking bits and pieces of the 360 with their year headstart and learning...but apparently not. Which has better games? The PS3 has Resistance:FOM(the only good game) and a WHOLE bunch already on the 360. They look the same with some framerate differences, but when it comes to a choice between the two consoles, it is easy. I go for the console that I can get Achievment Points. I am addicted to these and add a whole new level of gaming. And I already have a well-stocked friends list (Xtreme Liability, I am looking at you) with which to play all of my new games. I cannot imagine buying a new game and having to add my 75 friends to a NEW friends list. I think I would rather shoot myself in the head. Which has better movie playback? The PS3 kicks the 360s ass on this one. Even if adding up the price of the add-on and a console vs just a console, I would rather have the HD player inside my console. The HDMI plus Blu-Ray is sweet. But dear lord have mercy on me if Blu Ray fails. What a waste. Things I love about my PS3: The lack of a power brick. It makes for easy transporting. Unfortunately, the really pretty finish gets scratched ridiculously fast in a cloth backpack. The Wi-fi is awesome. I have the $100 adapter for the 360, but that says it all. $100. Ick. The card readers are nice, but I haven't used them. Unfortunately, there isn't a whole lot I am using my PS3 for except catching dust. I think I may have bought a little early just to say I had one. I am waiting for some great games to come out, but Sony seriously needs firmware updates for the functionality and the Online services. I am willing to pay to play on PS3, too.

when your Blu Ray craps out from overuse? With an external HD-DVD, I don't have to worry about bricking my console if it fails. Also, that internal power supply (rated 380W compared to 160W on 360, btw) gets HOT. All that heat trapped inside the case will do wonders for all your expensive system components. I'd rather have the external brick. I'm more about practicality than looking good.
Ummm, why do I feel like you are attacking me? This is ridiculous. I prefer the 360, but somethings I like about the PS3, and you whip out this fanboy crap? Are you serious? If the Blu-Ray drive fails? I use the warranty. If the DVD drive on my 360 fails, what will I do? I will use the COTTON-PICKIN warranty. I have left both my launch 360 and my launch PS3 on for 24 hours. You know how hot either one of those got? They didn't. I played a DVD and a Blu-Ray disc at the same time for the same length of time. How hot did they get? They didn't. They were both surprisingly cool to the touch. When I have transported my 360, the power brick beats the CRAP out of my 360. I don't dig that. How is THAT for practicality? I have two HD televisions... one 50 inch plasma at home, and a 23 inch LCD on the boat... and I could give a crap about either HD DVD format, because of my ENORMOUS DVD collection. I do like the praticality that one of my cosoles is not in pieces. That is my opinion. I love my 360. I am ambivalent about my PS3. Taste it.
Very honest, unbiased post from an intelligent, fair perspective.
I posted this some time ago about my PS3 experience: --"I own a SixtyGig machine and I haven't had a red laser of death problem, nor 480,720,1080i/p problems, nor overheating nor connectivity problems. ****** are you actually a PS3 owner or does all your info just come from the web, mags, heresay, etc? I highly doubt you are because if you were, you would know that it plays games just dandy. When I fire up & play Resistance it's outstanding (not 1 fu|<n glitch!) thank God! I'm stuck at the little crawler eggs and it's great & looks disgusting! -#** - You must've been playing on a Sanyo 27" CRT with dial-up ' (sorry) cause Multiplayer works great for me on those games (C.O.D. 3 & RFOM) and Ultimate Alliance, and Madden, and the graphics are gorgeous. But I like Blast Factor too, so go figure. lol Downloaded the Motorstorm demo and fire it up like every thirty minutes. That game rocks! I own NBA2K7, but haven't fired up online yet so don't know about the online experience. I've got nine games and they all play and look great. --So ** you to come in huffing and puffing and and just say that it blows testes is simply overboard. -- It's actually fun as hell. And yes, I play 360, and the wii, but they don't get as much rotation as my PS3 - not now. No wires, no straps - maybe that's it, I dunno maybe the perfect video playback to shut up all my goofy friends, shot with my Cyber-shot of me waiting like a fool in line in the freezing cold in another state for the machine that's displaying it. Or maybe all the photos that I downloaded from the Vaio onto the PSP and uploaded to the PS3. Now only if I could change the XBR background wp and get rumble back - ahhh. And yes, Genji does suck, but looks ridiculously "fine". You know the system overall is not nearly as bad as you say it is. As a matter of fact when I go to my friends houses and take the PS3 over, they can't help but stare at the damn thing. I'm talking wii, owners, 360 owners, PC only-gamers. It's pretty cool. I'm not saying they love it, but they just look and look and look at it. I put a controller in their hands & it's on; 6 or 8 hrs. blown to hell." -- Ya see, Ugly American everyone has their own view, but mainly I'm concerned with how happy people are with their PS3 purchase once enlightenment is bestowed upon you my brother. I love women. Women like new sh**. Biases aside whether you know better or not the PS3 looks kick a$$. Women like shi# like that.lol j/k I can honestly say the PS3 has helped to get me more a$$. On another hand, re: online functionality you state, _ --"Well, PS3 online is free. Xbox 360 is a little over $4/month. I will put this simply, sometimes you have to pay for quality.

Setting up my account took all of 5 minutes and once I was online I found my buddies, entered their names (all w/ a keboard of course) and was off to the races! Now, as far as the voice chat issue that is something flowing down the pipe at us right now -- count on it. And one more note, I dogged Mobile Suit Gundam CF pretty bad at first, but after playing it a few more times understand what it's going for and the gameplay is really not bad at all. I say F*** the critics...I'm gonna play what I want. Anyone else here who has been playing Gundam let me know what's up... And as far as the BD player goes I've got Kingdom of HEaven paused right now. It's on the XBRavia and looks Outstanding -- Syriana is next. Ok back to it.
So, I am still trying to read your post, but I am not sure if you are replying to more than just my post or not. The PS3 sitting in my entertainment center DOES look great. It is very shiny. Resistance, however, does not look as good as I expected. After playing Gears of War, Resistance was underwhelming. However, once I got further into the game, I was impressed with how much crap was going on onscreen at one time. I wish I cared about the photo function, but since all I can do with those photos is do a slide show(my parents used to do the same thing when I was a kid...with a slide prjoector...it bored the crap out of our guests...and guess what, it bores the crap out of me on a GAME machine), I don't care about it. And the same thing with music... I can rip music all day long, but I can't play it IN THE GAME. It is frustrating. And I still need to buy a USB Keyboard. But here is my point: When you get a new game to play online, OTHER than Resistance, you are going to have put all of their names on a NEW friends list. And when you buy ANOTHER game, you will have to put them ALL in a NEW friends list again. Oh, I have a PS3, and that fact alone fires me up more than anything. Not to mention, if they aren't online playing, YOU CAN'T ADD THEM. So you have to sit around and wait for them to get on, just so you can find them on another day. You cannot tell me that is not ridiculous. Take off the Fanboy glasses and help me get Sony to change THAT stupidity. I am not impressed with the Motorstorm demo. I DO like Blast Factor. If I could just figure out why I can slosh the stupid water one direction and not another at different times. It may be my spastic slinging of the controller. My PS3 is not helping me get laid. My wife could care less. Anyway, I never said the system was bad. That was your fanboy take on it. All I said is I preferred the 360, because its functionality is practical and more developed. Taste my GAMER OPINION.
Here comes my usual rant...I need to just make a boilerplate and fill in the quote: ""I own a SixtyGig machine and I haven't had a red laser of death problem, nor 480,720,1080i/p problems, nor overheating nor connectivity problems." YOUR PERSONAL experiences with the console, good or bad, mean NOTHING to us nor anyone else in the world. Given the large sample size, EVERYONE is going to have a different experience. 99% could be bad, and you happen to have a good one... 99% could be good, and you happen to have a bad one. This type of logic is a fallacy of the most basic kind and it is beyond irratating. Save your damn breath...call me when you have _statistics_ to back up your claim
Games go 1080p what kind of a moron typed that if he doesn't know that the HD DVD only plays movie's not games this guy really needs to pay more attention to what he is typing down moron he's confusing the viewers that the HD DVD can play movies when in reality it can't play games.
It's Great! I just watched two great movies in Blu-Ray & have been playing NHL 2k7 for about 20 minutes. I forgot just how fun this game is. I find MY personal purchase very satisfying mr. syntax error corrector. Btw exactly what your calling me out for is exactly what I was conveying in the post. I suggest you re-read. He sees things one way and someone else may see them another. So I wonder why you decided to jump on me, hmmm? So you decide to have a philosophy discussion -- you want to write everything in absolute truths? Gladly. The PS3 for me is good. It works. How much simpler can i state it. This is news for gamers. I'm reporting my slant so if you don't like it F off and try to hijack another thread cause I could care less if you think I'm rantin' or not. What the he77 do you do, but Rant??? Now please, go learn how to make your 360 quieter, *****, and leave PS3 people the he77 alone, eh? Do you own one dude? No. late. a/w that's my perspective, cheers.
i like the PS3 that's why i bought it, but this story just doesn't give any concret details as to why he likes the PS3 so much. Or what is better or worst about the machine when compared to the 360. (yes people both mahcines have good and bad things) The story looks like it was written by a 15 yr old high school kid. The details he gives are mix-up, like the HD-DVD drive for the 360 playing games and movies when that is not the case. how can you miss a detail like that. outside of the story people just need to play both systems. Resistance is great, motorstorm demo is awesom, and on the 360 side thier online and Gears can't be messed with that game looks GREAT and fom what i hear it's a whole lot of fun.
