The Growth of The PS3

November 17, 2006 was the date the U.S. got its hands on Sony's next generation console. The first immediate reviews of it were too expensive, lack of games, and just a blu-ray player. Later that year, the PS3 was given the number-eight spot on PC World magazine's list of "The Top 21 Tech Screwups of 2006," where it was criticized for being "Late, Expensive, and Incompatible." What kind words PC World. Many that the fate of PlayStation was doomed, but their was still a lite at the end of this very dark tunnel.

Does that not remind you of a tree?
The Ps3 is growing like a tree. Its gonna be big and strong.

...Too bad trees are easily burnt down by flammable objects.

The 360 wins this round.

That was pretty funny, even if I disagree with its overall statement, nice comment.

Surfman3746d ago

or maybe you could just shut up? that would be good

PirateThom3746d ago

Why so serious?

I laughed.

I was (and still am) busy playing Grif ball, I don't know what I was thinking.

Breakfast, I believe this one goes to you.

Nice to see someone else saw the humor in his comment, I thought that I was going to be the only one.

kevin11123746d ago

lol, that is pretty funny if you are implying the overheating of the 360 and it burns the tree which is a ps3.

LeonSKennedy4Life3746d ago (Edited 3746d ago )

That's great and all...

...but who is trying to light their PS3 on fire???

What sense did you think you made there?

"Burnt down by flammable objects"???

A tree IS a flammable object. What are you smoking, dude? I mean, seriously...if a flammable object is burning down a tree, wouldn't that object have to have already been burned by something else? Why not skip to the source of the fire and cut out the middle man? Seriously. Your joke required no thought process and should not be regarded as such. Your life was a waste today. Go to sleep and try this whole "comedy" thing again tomorrow.

LeonSKennedy4Life3746d ago (Edited 3746d ago )

Not to be a complete jerk... was just a really bad joke.

If he had said "too bad flower buds, like good games, only come out of it once a year"...I would've understood.

You're bad at what you do.

Aclay3746d ago

I don't think you realize that you insulted the Xbox 360 when you said that "The PS3 is like a Tree...Too bad trees are easily burnt down by flammable objects."

The Xbox 360 is known for it's overheating issues and there's even been stories about a Xbox 360 causing a house to catch on fire.

Sorry, but the 100+ million Playstation userbase wins that round, not the 360.

juuken3746d ago

...That was a stupid joke.

she00win993745d ago

"Too bad trees are easily burnt down by flammable objects"

but x360 will burn by itself without a help of any flammable object, it can also burn your house too...

LeonSKennedy4Life3745d ago

Thank you, guys...


Why does nobody ever give me bubbles? I give bubbles like CRAZY! I never, however, subtract bubbles. Honestly, I just want the option to say at least 5 things on this forum.

squallheart3745d ago

bubble for you leon since you had me laughing xD

killcycle3745d ago

OMFG thats the funniest joke ive seen all year man nice one.

to those who were to simple minded to understand ill break it down for you-

xbox overheats easily, burns down the ps3 and there for wins.

so why the disagrees????

NextGen Exempt3745d ago

I guess those flammable objects got sparked by touching a 360.

Thanks for coming out.

Your sooooooooo right

Poor Xbots

Shane Kim3745d ago

I knew all along that this would happen. I was never worried of that little lead xbox had. And one more thing, It didn't start with MGS4 this year, it started with GT5:P. One hell of a racing game.

Sir_Ken_Kutaragi3745d ago

The Fall of The xBox 360...Makes me feel Good!!! ;-D

zapass3745d ago

@Shane: yeah GT5P rulez!


LoVeRSaMa3745d ago

WOW Morganfelldown you are so stupid, you reported one story 3 times with no reasons, not to mention it is only an overview of the PS3's lifetime thus far with vaild points. No need to go fanboyish over it 360 nor Wii are mentioned here.

chaostheory3746d ago (Edited 3746d ago )

The PS3 is coming on really strong this year, I really can not wait for LBP and R2. Sadly I probably will not have enough time to play any games besides these two (except maybe a couple of PSN titles).
