Killzone 2 would like to have word with you.

zapass3770d ago

GT5P too
MGS4 too
LBP too

I'll stop here cuz it's already way enough to prove that the lies are coming from developers who are challenged (to stay polite) while the really good ones do deliver.

nothing comes even close to these games and as we all know, there's much more to come.

wanna talk about lies?
how about all these months of massive bullsh!t about RROD stats in the media? yeah like "only 3 or 4% failure rate" while it's 10x in reality?

these are real lies and real coksuckas who buy them.
time to cut the crap and get real, buddy

n00bzRtehgey3770d ago

LoVeRSaMa3770d ago

^^ Guess you believe the media all the time, well that was a lie about too human dev and not a fact.

Let me guess you might also believe that 9/11 was done by *terroist* ..sure that is what our beloved goverment tells you as soon as that happend, just do a little trick with the 20$ bill

n00bzRtehgey3770d ago

Blur, don't expect these morons to know about the Bush Regime blowing-up WTC buildings 1, 2, and 7 when they can't even figure-out Fony's lies.

BLUR1113770d ago (Edited 3770d ago )

Yea. it's just sad though how they always believe every little thing they hear

is it really a lie to create hype for a game? Come on ppl this is stupid and shows the problems with gaming media today! Its sick to think of making hype for a game is a lie to ppl! Finish the fight was a lie then!

The biggest lie ever was MS telling everyone they had a fail rate of 3%! If they told the truth about that one year into the life cycle they would be in third place today!

prunchess3770d ago

when i read the line "we're not asking Microsoft to sink to Sony's Level"!

That site has no shame, Microsoft aren't the worlds most fined company fo no reason! - you truly suck ass with the best of them!

Gam713770d ago

M$ might be the most fined but thats due to the high amount of a small number of fines. £ony on the other hand are the most sued company of all time.

Type sony sued by into google and tell me what comes up.

You know why they are sued so often, the steal other peoples property then lie about it

prunchess3770d ago

Any Joe soap can bring a spurious case against a company claiming they've being ripped off. Most cases don't even make it as far as court and are thrown out. It is the cases that are upheld that count.

I've been in the games and PC trade since 1990. Microsoft are in a league of their own when it come to multinationals being fined and SUCCESSFULLY sued.

BTW Did you check to see how many hits you got for "Microsoft sued" when you put it in google?

Gam713770d ago (Edited 3770d ago )

How many times have £ony been successfully sued?
How many times have they settled out of court?
How many times this gen?
More than anyone else.

And it's not just their gaming division.

Also the only spurious case I can think of involving £ony is when they sued Lik-Sang.
Don't like imports cos they can't rip-off the owners of their products then. (europe)

TheDude2dot03770d ago


I can say that Microsoft has been the most sued company and that they are now in debt. Does that mean it's correct? It could be if I game some EVIDENCE. Notice that the all caps on "evidence" makes it seem more important.

i Dont understand why haze scored soooo badly,the only thing wrong with it is the twitchy aiming system and weird..glitchy cut-scenes.

But the online is great,very addictive.tho it shouldnt of been so hyped.I really like Haze,i still play it alot.
