As promised, Sony has released the demo for Gran Turismo HD in today, Christmas Eve. The download was available midnight and the PlayStation Network is down for the count after the "rush" of people trying to download it.
Whoever posted this is as big a fanboy like anyone else on this site, and I'm not talking about the article for the PNP network going down I'm talking about their personal input.
its 1:30am. Go play on your PNP network. Since its late and probably only ten (10) people playing online it just might be safe.
lol, what idiot wrote that? sony has the same specialists ms has you moron. of course if live has only crap ppl dont want this will never happen, although didnt it crash as they offered the hd videos ?
Only the video section crashed. You were still able to use the marketplace and play games.
umm M$ is a software company and an expert in in all aspects of pc data communications sony is a hardware company that knows next to nothing when compared to M$ in the same field... NO they do NOT have the same specialists, they do not even have the same server foundation M$ went out and spent two billion (yes billions not millions) building a server farm specifically for xbox live, sony probably has like 4 linux boxes linked up to a t3 and calls that thier server.
I'm not a Ps3 owner and I've haven't bought a next-gen console because I've haven't made a decision yet. Anyways I'm perfectly mellow and I just hate Sony/Xbox fanboys because they just get on my nerves.
I dont see how this is a very hard decision. Some companies use hype and smoke and mirrors and some companies deliver. You figure out which company currently has the best bang for your buck.
This constant arguing is stupid already. I thought when the PS3 came out people would just calm down a little on this site. But I feel it just gets worse everyday. Like I said many times before I'm a gamer who is a gamefan not a loyalist to one company. What does anybody get out of just loving one system instead of all of them? If I told somebody how great Gears of War is why not just say "Wow that sounds great maybe one day I will get to try it" instead of saying that the 360 is last years gen not next gen or if the PS3 Resistants:Fall of Man is a top notch game why keep comparing it to GOW instead of saying "wow you're lucky to have a game like that". I know it may sound childish but arguing back and forth like we do on this site is even more childish. Hey I love my 360 and as for the online service Sony may not be able to top it, but it doesn't matter because I purchased the systems to play the games, the online stuff is just extras to me. So maybe one day we could be happy for each other and respect people's opinions here instead of the same old name calling we have been doing ever since this site opened up.
respect this dude for his the truest on this site ever
That's not a good sign for Sony. Xbox Live didn't even go down when that Halo 3 trailer came out. I was expecting it to down during E3 but it didn't.
you thought that the site would have calmed down after the PS3 came out!!! well it should have if sony hade delivered on what they said.plus because of all the B.S sony fans put xbox fans through before the Ps3 came out, talking about how crappy the games were, the xbox is gonna disapear when the Ps3 comes out,the whole xbox 1.5 thing,now I only think its fair to give them what they gave everybody else. DJ,ENFORCER,PS3FAN, the whole bunch!! because right now the PS3 dont look better than the xbox 360 regardless off what the Ps3 fans think!!!
I'v been a member of this site for a long time and #2's rabbid attatude is commom with Sony fans; then you got xbox fans using the same tactics in response. Once in a blue moon you'll see xbox fans rabbidly attack someone personally before they have said somtheing stupid but 90% of the time PS3 fans do it, flooding the site with out of spite dirt on MS's console is one other tactic; no amount of Hippie "IM a Gamer talk will change that. You're right Sony has not delivered and it's got Hardcore Sony fans on edge and short and it has inbolden 360 fans to say what they have though for ages and the PS3 fans can't handle it. It's simple. DJ, ENFORCER of Truth, PS3FAN, Bill gates, The truth, Gametime, SSJ04, Jin Kazuma and more were the alpha Fans of rabbidness although some have calmed down after PS3 launched they set the tone on this site, a New generation is born, Videl, Timmy and score's of others.
It goes both ways with the insults and you're no different than the worst kind of fans here on the site. Don't beat around the bush with your statement about me with "no amount of Hippie I am a Gamer talk will change that". I am a gamer. I had every system you could think of. Atari 2600, Coleco vision, TURBOGRAFX-16, Neo Geo, Nintendo, SNES, N64, Atari Jaguar, Genesis, 32X, SEGACD, Saturn, PS1,PS2, Dreamcast, XBOX and the 3DO which I regretted buying. The systems I have now is the xbox360, the Wii and sometime this week my PS3 order is coming in from Circuitcity. So when I say I'm a gamer it has nothing to do with being a hippie (Peace,Love and Happiness) nonsense you are trying to preach about. If you love what ever console you support great but don't try and put people down for stuff you don't even know about or maybe never know about. I don't see any reason besides jealousy on this site to attack other people about their choice of consoles. The only reason I would argue with anybody on this site is when they get personal with me, not to just hate them because they are a fan of a particular system. Everyday people on this site sound so stupid in arguing about the same old bullsh!t, about nothing. The whole my system is better than your system sounds like a bunch of ten year olds arguing that my dad could kick your dad's a55. GROW UP!!!
i logged in after i heard the site went down and it seemed fine to me... actually relatively fast as the download took only a few minutes,,, and the game is pretty rad too
You got it right.
MS simply has more professionals in the field and have had more first hand experience with the interent. I'm sure that Sony has its own specialists, I bet some that have worked for MS even, and will make the service more reliable. As before, it was just the Video Service went down for a bit. Disapointing, yes. Expected, yes. Really that big of a deal, not really. The service will end up reaching MS level quality soon, and I'd say be on par with it by the end of 07.
