Torrence Davis of The Bitbag writes, "Hiphopgamer ran into Aaron Greenberg at the Sony press conference and called him out on his claims against Sony. Aaron took up the challenge like a true pro and didn't back down."
It looked like Greenberg got a little upset when he responded to HipHopGamer's BluRay response. He must be sick of hearing about the format.
I really hate Aaron Greenburg, he's just a douchebag.
He doesn't sound very convincing. I don't think he even believes himself.
I want Aaron Greenberg's PSN.... He said they ahve the most exclusives which made me laugh. Thats a lie, especially with Bioshock coming to PS3 (woohoo - sarcasm). Microsoft seems to be focusing on making everything go multiplatform which is pretty useless.
Geez he does look like a douche. I like the beginning 'There is no data to confirm number of consoles sold' and then '....according to NPD data 360 has 5 million bla bla...' Yeah good work fool.
This is for Gaffyh Look man i understand you have your own opinions but you shouldn't talk about people if you don't know them because aaron greenberg is one of the coolest guys i've met out here forget that microsoft vs sony crap right now this guy is amazing, down to earth, easy going and he showed me nothing but love and you see that he admits he has all the systems and he's real true gamer how can you not respect that so in my opinion the guy is great and i know him personally so before you talk about people you should check yourself first man because if the roles were reversed how would feel being called a deutche bag for no reason 1luv and god bless stay tuned to the rest of the show i got so much more content it's ridiculous peace
And the award for longest sentence without punctuation goes to...*drumroll* hiphopgamer! I always thought journalists were good at writing. Guess I was wrong lol!
He's not one, he's a joke, a fake, whatever you want to insert. Sorry I know it's not the open zone but I can't stand to see this wannabe trying to act like a journalist, when instead he's a proven whinning sony wannabe fanboy. And you fangirls who try to kiss up to this loser are just as bad. OK, go ahead and report me girls. End of story.
look at Xgamer, what loser.... he only wishes he could be at E3 HA! youll never make it kid... not when your doing nothing with your life.. peace!
good interview yo. you really doin it! how does it feel? let me know dog. 1luv and god bless.
what if you gave 2luv or if the need arose, higher luv? @hiphop, way to throw numbers back at him. you just made him look like a fool.
I wanna thanks to everybody and all the fans of the bitbag.com and the hiphopgamershow and trust me when you see the rest of the show you gonna that we are here we mean business we love the games and the real gamers and bottom line we have the best show at E3 so you gotta check it out 1luv and god bless take care everyone and thank you for your contnued support don't forget to add me to your playstation 3 and i'm making a brand new profile on the 360 soon so you can add me there too so one love and god bless peaceeeeeeeeee
Amazing, only one more more thing to do is get Olivia Munn on the HipHopGamer Show.
That was crazy!!! Glad to see that you stood your ground and asked him difficult questions instead of taking an easier route. Watched your show for the first time last weekend and I was very impressed, I have alot of respect for what you do. Keep up the good work.
Great job man.
PS3 fanboyism at it's best, have you noticed this loser is pro Sony?. I'm surprized any rep or media gave this POS the time of day.
ha! look at your self man. hes actually a "winner". (corny but VERY TRUE) edit: he must be doing something right if you keep on reading it huh.
Wake me up when this fan fuc shows no bias towards any company all I see is pro Sony points of views, every time I read this BS(stupid me for trying to see if he wises up" thinking he is beyond a average Sony fanboy) I never see a fair and balanced objective it's always pro Sony on some level.
Wake me up when you can make an unbiased comment and add positively to articles, instead of acting like a biased fool and interjecting your fanboyism at every turn. "I never see a fair and balanced objective it's always pro Sony on some level." Well i'm sure anyone could say the same about you, only it would look more like this: "I never see a fair and balanced objective point of view from Power of Green; it's always pro-XBOX on some level"
Xbox 360 had 10.5 million sold worldwide the day PS3 came out. Now Xbox 360 lead is 5 million worldwide, but the thing is PS3 has sold over 2 million units in each region U.S., Japan and Europe. LOL Xbox 360 hasn't even hit a million sold in Japan yet
You clown pog. All you see is pro Xbox and that is fine but pro Sony isn't? You are a mental worm, really.
Hiphopgamer is a ps3 fanboy, that's no news, even in a past interview he said it himself but he does good interviews and makes a lot of valid points about anything he claims.
Hell yeah man that was great, hard hittin questions FTW
Its like a Pro Super 360 fanboy bugging the sh8t out of Sony rep etc asking why Sony fails to do this and that compared to what MSFT has to offer lol.
yea and theirs a difference between a "fan" and a "fanboy". you would be considered a fanboy cause you bull sh*t alot. he (the hiphopgamer) is considered a fan cause he dosent bull sh*t at all. hes the truth and i see him becoming more and more professional each time i see him. @6- hiphop said look how quickly the ps3 is catching up and how come the 360 isnt extending the lead? hiphop was professional and he did a damn good job as a sony journalist. you said he got served? hey i seen that movie! you must be very immature for your age. but anyways hiphopgameshow is where its at. look! your here arent you? he must be doing something right! hahah thats my dog, good sh*t hiphopgamer. 1luv and god bless.
Poor pog. Yeah, Im sure all multiple console owners like all their consoles exactly the same.
Glad you didn't take the 1up way out and just rub the man off the whole time for an interview http://www.neogaf.com/forum...
Thanks for your support and trust i have respect for all the journalist out there but what we got going on at the bitbag and the hiphopgamershow is second to none and if you don't know now you know 1luv and god bless it's on and poppin now
He completely put it down on that one. He's a man of his word. Funny stuff right there!
Just a supposedly more hip branch of SDF. No one pays this POS any mind outside Sony fanatics and poor souls that are tricked into reading this garbage. I'm going to start my own POS Media outlet and ask why Sony failed at this and didn't do that while praising 360 and bashing PS3.
no one pays him any mind except for sony fanatics. AND sony executives. oh and lets not forget YOU, the upset xbox fanatic. : P
Why do you insist on calling him a POS? Is it because he made the MS rep stutter, or because he speaks his mind and doesnt agree with you. A: you have never met the guy B: you wouldnt call him that to his face C: you making yourself look like the POS
He got taught a lesson. We who expected Aron Greenberg to accept, at least he just confirmed that VG Chartz numbers are a load of poo.
Wouldn't Power of Red be a more fitting name?
Should change the title to "Hiphopgamer gets served by Aaron Greenberg". He shut you down on every question. You tried to sound informed and hit him with embarrassing things like VGchartz numbers and ended up making a fool out of yourself. It was as if you were expecting him to say "yes hiphopgamer, you are right, Sony is so much better than us". If you are not biased, as you told Aaron, where is your hardhitting interview with a Sony rep? You could ask them things like "How come you are still in third place? Why did you let Microsoft have your biggest exclusive?" etc. Or maybe they aren't as open to interviews as Microsoft? Go on, call me a hater if it makes you feel better.
Biggest exclusive is Gran Turismo 5. We are 3rd place because you got a 1 year headstart and since you only have a 5 million lead in another year the PS3 will be 2nd place and 360 is 3rd.
Wow! Nice comeback lol! Do you mean "we" as in you work for Sony, or "we" as in deluded fanboy? MS got a year headstart cause Sony messed up with their production of the PS3, they didn't have enough Blu-Ray lasers. Final Fantasy is bigger than Gran Turismo. Top ten best-selling video game franchises: 1. Mario (200 million) 2. Pokémon (175 million) 3. The Sims (100 million) 4. Final Fantasy (85 million) 5. Need for Speed (80 million, includes Need for Speed Underground) 6. Grand Theft Auto (70 million) 7. Madden NFL (70 million) 8. Tetris (70 million) 9. FIFA (65 million) 10. Tom Clancy (55 million) http://en.wikipedia.org/wik... You end your comment with empty predictions of Sony domination next year. I've seen those since 2006, nothing has changed so far.
Gran Turismo has sold 50 mil by GT4. Theres like over 20 FF games, do the math.
lol Moneysoft got a headstart cause they herd PS3 was in production,so they threw together some current gen PC parts and rushed the market with the "360" As for your link,yeah? franchises? so? FF has been on almost everything from nintendo to mobile phones. and now both next gen consoles. nevermind franchises,talk about exclusive games. PlayStation 2 games that have sold or shipped at least one million copies. Grand Theft Auto: Vice City (17.5 million, may include PC and Xbox versions) Gran Turismo 3: A-Spec (14.89 million shipped) Grand Theft Auto III (14.5 million, may include PC and Xbox versions) Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas (12 million) Gran Turismo 4 (10.06 million shipped) Metal Gear Solid 2: Sons of Liberty (7 million) Final Fantasy X (6.6 million) Final Fantasy XII (5.2 million approximately: 2.4 million in Japan, 1.7 million in US, 1.1 million in Europe; 5.2 million shipped) Kingdom Hearts (4.68 million approximately: 3.45 million in US, 1.23 million in Japan; 5.9 million shipped including Kingdom Hearts Final Mix and Ultimate Hits) Dragon Quest VIII: Journey of the Cursed King (4.44 million approximately: 3.6 million in Japan, 410,000 in Europe, 430,000 in North America; 4.7 million shipped) Gran turismo's there.it sold almost 7 million more then FF. PlayStation 3 games that have sold or shipped at least one million copies. MotorStorm (3 million) Resistance: Fall of Man (2.5 million) Grand Theft Auto IV (1.97 million approximately: 1.4 million in US, 570,000 in UK) Gran Turismo 5 Prologue (1.926 million approximately: 1.5 million in Europe, 202,131 in Japan, 224,000 in US; 2.23 million shipped) Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots (1.585 million approximately: 1 million in Europe, 585,000 in Japan; 3 million shipped) Uncharted: Drake's Fortune (1.2 million) Heavenly Sword (1 million) Ratchet & Clank Future: Tools of Destruction (1 million) GTP is almost at 2 million and it's a DEMO.wait till the real game drops,You fail jenzo,you fail so badly.
You xbots are sad. FF 13 alone in Japan wil sell 2 million day one probaly more, but you Xbots wouldn't know that because FF 13 on PS3 is the only version that's going to be out in Japan. Why aren't you guys still Hyping Too Human like you guys were 2 months back?? LMFAOOO you guys are relying on Gears of war 1.5, Falbe 2 and multiplatform games to win this Fall and Christmas HOW SAD HAHAHAHAHAAH!!! P.S. Its funny how when Blue Dragon and Lost Odyssey came out you Xbots were talkin much crap on FF13 and now all of a sudden you guys are claiming it as your own. You Xbots are Hypocrites.
Jenzo, that's why you don't mess with the Mikeslemonade. FF is how many games like 15 games and Gran Turismo is like 6 games. So on average GT sells more. Jenzo your clearly a fanboy yourself too so stop being hypocritical by delclaring other people are fanboys. And what you mean nothing has changed? What is 10million-5million? 5 million that is your tiny lead that will dissapear in a year.
but he finished it with greenburgs numbers. He told hiphop they had a 5 million lead that lead used to be 9.5 million. So how does Aaron prove his irrational statement of no ps3 momentum??? By saying the only months of they year that count are november and december and xbox will be winning those????
...I'm sorry but hiphopgamer owned him. That is all.
Despite his thugish gangster appearance and speech patterns, this Hiphopgamer guy is actually quite intelligent. Way to go! Most interviewers are brain dead as hell, all they do is follow the script but this guy is great at thinking on his feet. Those idiots at G4 need to give him a job or something.
as an african-american i'm not sure how to take your statement, what do you mean he's actually quite intelligent? I dont like where that assumption is going, everyone to speaks proper english is not necessarily smart either dont need a whole bunch of flamers disagreeing with me, just something that stuck out to me
Did I mention anything about his color? Being black has nothing to do with it so don't start. I guess you were too busy scaning for racial material to notice the part where I mentioned "thugish gangster appearance".
And what is "thuggish gangster appearance" usually associated with? The whole "he looks dumb at first but im surprised that he's really smart" is a assumption that has followed blacks for years. The word for it is profiling, and i wasnt scanning for anything those are your demons not mine.
Can you two stop it please? Its ridiculous. You are both reading into each other's comments far too much for subtleties that just are not there, or are not on purpose. Kiss and make up please >.>!
20's 30's & 40's were white, and thy were the peons for the gangsters. Gnagsters were white, then also. What are you so upset about? Are you mad that he is calling him a peon?
your a racist its so clearly evident you comment needs to get deleted
JOLLY: historically speaking you are correct, but not in the context he is speaking in. In this day and age the term is associated with young black deviants. And to answer your question, yes i am pissed that because of the attire and grammar the interviewer used, that guy assumed he was in your words a peon Edit: this is my last comment on this subject, but i am not being over sensitive at all. I feel this was because i read something i found offensive and addressed it. I didn't name call of even do something petty like take any bubbles. My hope was that he would look at his statement and see where he went wrong to maybe avoid that way of wording things in the future. He may not have meant it as an insult but lets me honest thats what it was.
This is why racial discrimination can never really disappear from our society. Someone is always somewhat insensitive with their choice of words, and there will always be someone who is somewhat too sensitive to the words they hear. They both will be in a perpetual and never ending vicious cycle of bickering. If one is to change something. One must take the first step, even if he is shunned and torn down. Even if he must be the scape goat for the hard end of public humiliation. There will always be the need for a martyr.
You want me to avoid calling people who look like stupid thugs as stupid thugs, is that your point? Give me a break. Hiphopgamer sounded like a dumbass thug/wannabe gamer until he conducted the interview in way very few E3 press have done before. Of course you were too busy getting hung up on the "stupid thug" part to care. Go look for your racially charged subject else where.
"They both will be in a perpetual and never ending vicious cycle of bickering" <- I am sorry about the triple redundancy of this sentence. --> "They both will both be in a perpetual cycle of bickering"
call it like it is fanboi. I knew what you meant even if the delivery wasn't to everybody's liking and bruiser81 its fine to question things. It seems like a joke couldn't even be made about anybody without somebody getting the wrong end of the stick and that is really saddening to me. Ill be honest. When i heard HHG i thought that the it might class with peoples image of what a gamer can be. Yes he could talk with the queens english (american english) if he wanted to but then that would make me pissed because thats not how he talks on his show. Im glad he's keeping it real to himself and he's nice on the mic too. We should undo programming that makes us think how people who do specific jobs on tv should act.
he looks gay hahaha ....desperate price cut
"Bluray" and Mr. Aaron goes down!. tht was funny. they both should join the debate team. good interview..
yeah Aaron Greenburg just got SMASHHHEEDDD... Notice how he quickly turned off his smile. Next person HHG needs to SMASHHHHHH in person is Shane Kim
he says. Well that format may be great for streaming movies. MS seems to be focusing more on streaming movies than eliminating games that have to come out on 3 and 4 disc due to DVD9 constraints. Movies are 2 hours give or take but games are getting bigger and bigger. I think they may be able to get away with it this gen. Im not so sure about the next.
We need more interviews like this. Excellent and straight forward.
That was great,Greenburgs a f*ckin arogant prick "We have the best exclusives,movie content,online" where else can you get that kind of entertainment?" uhh,PS3 ya f*ckin goof,with a less then 1% chance of it breaking on ya Plus an internet browser,and mouse/keyboard compatibility Standard HDD.Wireless blue-tooth SixAxis/rumble controllers with built in long lasting rechargeable batteries,FREE PSN,FREE HOME ,"life with playstation" by the end of the month,GT.TV. and the REAL best exclusives,not multiplats with exclusive DLC.
-.- You're sounding pretty arrogant yourself. He works for Microsoft.. what do you expect him to say? That xBox sucks? Um, yea, that would work out good for him.. You're an idiot, bro. And, yes, the xBox has the most downloadable movies, and such, and will have twice that when the new update hits.. that's more than what Sony has to offer.
Im an idiot? for what? calling greenburg what he is? spinning false numbers and telling bullsh!t stories? sure he works for microsoft,so he's got to lie? And people like you just pretend it's perfectly fine.
And, you pretend Sony and employees don't lie.. So, I guess that makes us even then, eh? And, exactly what did he lie about? Please, refresh my memory.
Wow... take your goggles off people. Hippityhop did NOT own anything in that interview. He asked questions, and he got answers. Seemed like this Green guy simply was stunned how stupid the Bluray question was... like duh, what is so special about Bluray? High Def? Uhhhmmmm... huge High Def library available. "But not on BLuray", haaa... that's like saying yeah you got a copy of GTA IV... but not on Bluray. Bluray is the new Sony Memeory stick... And Hippityhop, hey man... slow down, take a breath and try not to swallow your tongue when you are on camera. And not a fanboy? Or was that not a hater? I don't remember... sounded like a gasp. But saying you own both systems doesn't give you a pass for your PS3 love and obvious Fanboy love. That's like sista soldier saying she can't be a racist because she is black.
hiphopgamer did a real good professional job and got what he wanted out of it. notice all the love he showed at the end of the interview. thats real right there. hiphop prefers the ps3 but that doesnt mean he dislikes the 360, he has various reasons why he prefers the ps3. did anyone catch on at how professional hiphop was? he came at greenburgh hard with some pretty awesome questions man. they were both good sports about it. http://www.thebitbag.com/20... thats a link of his first interview he did at E3. look how professional it is man. enjoy. peace and god bless. [email protected] hater below me- yes i do call it professional and yes he is there for a REASON. like.... just look at who he is interviewing you shmuck. oh hey, you want to know what i call unprofessional? aaron greenburgh and shane kims childish statements regarding the ps3 and how its doing and all the unprofessional sh*t talking they do. cmon man, all three of you, GROW UP.
