Playstation 3 Where games belong

Well, here we are nearly two years into the life of the Playstation 3. Since its inception, we have overheard numerous rants and raves as to whether the system was good, bad, great you name it. But where does it truly stand? Will the PS3 bring in a new era of gaming over the next 8 years? Will it be another glossy doorstop to add to systems of old? We have those answers and more coming in this all inclusive article. Flameboys need not apply.

They clearly belong there, but the question is in what year will they arrive?

I give the PS3 two Master Chiefs out of five in its current state.

Jamie Foxx3749d ago

toughy that was funny...guess what

LBP all the way

Aclay3749d ago

Those games have already arrived ToughName and more are coming this year, where the hell have you been?

And let's not forget about Next year: God of War 3, Heavy Rain, Killzone 2, Infamous, MAG, White Knight Chronicles, Wardevil... do I need to name more? I didn't think so.

Max Power3749d ago (Edited 3749d ago )

because i give halo 3 two master chiefs out of five as well. ;) wink

The Lazy One3749d ago (Edited 3749d ago )

is this article 3 pages... I stopped reading when I noticed I'd have to click and load three times to read the equivalent of a one page article.

edit: Holy butts... it has ads that literally block out the whole screen too.

This website is fail, regardless of what the article says. Someone copy and paste it and host it somewhere else.

LastDance3749d ago

AclayPS3 - Its okay man...i dont think anyone on N4G forgets about it...because they are constantly reminded by members in the comment section ..hahaha...:P

JD_Shadow3749d ago (Edited 3749d ago )

You should take the time to read it and click through the links (that ad crap is with a LOT of big name sites anymore, and I would rather it be a three page article than it be one huge wall of text). It's a damn good read.

[email protected]: Wow, THAT'S really mature. -.-

and further, you really shud read it, coz its a good article

masterg3749d ago


It's funny how having great games in the pipeline is a negative for 360 fans. Right now there are tons of great title for the PS3, but that doesn't seem to matter.

But somehow 360 likes it better when they have nothing to look forward to. I simply don't get it.

(not saying the 360 doesn't any great games comming out)

socomnick3749d ago

lol master g you think that Ms has no games in the pipeline. When was Gears of war 2 announced. A mere couple of months ago and its coming out this year. Microsoft has a different approach than Sony. MS does not want to kill the hype of its current games by showing off games that wont come out until years from now. Those tittles coming out next year expect a few to get delayed until 2010 its bound to happen. Also expect new games from MS to be announced at any moment they like keeping a tight lid on their games and actually showing them when they are ready as opposed to sony who likes to show off cgi trailers.

MikeGdaGod3749d ago

MS has tons of new games coming out

Halo 4
Halo 5
Halo 6
Halo 7
Halo 8
Halo 9
Halo 10
Halo: The Beginning
Halo: The Ending
Halo Party
Halo Street Racer
Halo Picnic
Halo: The Origins of Little Helmet

SolidSnake933749d ago

To be fair I see the PS3 and 360 as equals in their current state, so I'll give the 360 2 Solid Snakes out of 5.

xg-ei8ht3748d ago

Scottie that was some funny sh(^)t

Halo, A new ending
Halo, The ending so far
Halo, Another Planet, Another boring war.
Halo, Do you like my shinny new helmet.

TVC153748d ago

need to stop listing games they know hardly anything about as GREAT games in sony's lineup

does anyone know anything about MAG other than 256 player online?
white knight chronicles has hardly any gameplay videos
and what the heck is that wardevil game, a little teaser released deserves no hype

Legion3748d ago (Edited 3748d ago )

Would that fall in line with PS3 B3yond titles expected?:

Resistance 3
Resistance 4
Resistance 5
Resistance 6
Resistance the Return: Boring Aliens return
Little Big Planet Resistance
Resist the urge to buy a game console: Bluray Resistance the movie

MSG 100
MSG 101: Finally learn the meaning behind the total mess of a story
Snake the early years: Reform School Bully
Snake in my pants, the San Francisco Chronicles: M17... see all the CGI scenes come to life

We could Fanboy back and forth all night. But simply put. PS3 might be where the games belong, but they aren't there yet, but a few handful.

And B3yond is the worst strategy I have ever seen in a game console. How many more years of "Just wait until next year..." do you have to put up with before you realize you could be playing a multitude of great games now? There is a reason XBox 360 has such a high attach rate. It has more and better selection. Now... and B3YOND.

LJWooly3748d ago

Legion, that really wasn't funny at all. Scottie at least had some decent humour in his post. You also consistently called MGS "MSG".

This article is nothing but mindless fanboy drivel!

"Well, here we are nearly two years into the life of the Playstation 3. Will the PS3 bring in a new era of gaming over the next 8 years?"

Who knows? You see, the problem with the 10 year 'life' of the PS3 is this; It's us that will decide how long the PS3 survives, not Sony!

"Other noteable titles followed suit, delivering full, 1080p resolutions that 360 gamers had been dreaming about for over a year"

That is an outright lie! There are few PS3 games that are 1920x1080p. Most so called 1080p games like GT5 Prologue are only 1280x1080p and still has screen tearing and framerate issues.

"Fast forward, late 2007. Sony begins to show some muscle, releasing some of the best gaming moments ever compiled on a single platform with truly breathetaking games like Ratchet & Clank: Future Tools of Destruction, Uncharted: Drakes Fortune, and even MLB 08: The Show"

I'm not even sure how to respond to something so blatantly false and inaccurate. I'll just call the Hyperbole Police and leave it at that.

This article is complete Bullshit!

Aclay3749d ago

The Gaming market isn't anywhere and neither is the PS3. As long as people buy Video games and Blu-ray, the PS3 is going to be around so get used to it. The Playstation userbase is over 100+ million strong, never forget that.

JD_Shadow3749d ago

Might be just me, but you really have no idea what 1080p means, do you? By the way you described it, you made my brain hurt. Some food for thought (in case I'm right on this assumption of you not knowing what you're talking about): 1080 means there are that many lines on the screen making up the picture, and P means progressive scan. Doesn't mean pixels like I'm assuming you were trying to go with that explanation. And yes, GT5 Prologue IS 1080p (not all HDTV's have that 1080p option (mine only has 1080i), and the PS3 displays the game on the lowest supported setting you got selected on the Displays Setting screen. You have to make sure it's the only selected setting).

They have said they PLAN on the system lasting 10 years. It may last even longer. However, the way they are able to provide firmware updates the way they are going, it's hard to see how they could NOT go for ten years or maybe more.

Then I go to THIS line:

" "Fast forward, late 2007. Sony begins to show some muscle, releasing some of the best gaming moments ever compiled on a single platform with truly breathetaking games like Ratchet & Clank: Future Tools of Destruction, Uncharted: Drakes Fortune, and even MLB 08: The Show"

I'm not even sure how to respond to something so blatantly false and inaccurate. I'll just call the Hyperbole Police and leave it at that."

So, wait, someone isn't allowed to have that opinion. Just because you don't think the games are good (and sans R&C, which I can't say anything about because I haven't played it yet, Uncharted and MLB are awesome games), doesn't mean the person sitting next to you has to believe the exact same thing. ALL THREE games were critically acclaimed, which makes the above statement that you went off on true in that regard. But you saying that they are not allowed to have that opinion (much less express it) is uncalled for.

And your comment is completely fanboy drivel. You tell us everything they said was BS, then give us the wrong idea about what 1080p means (more I think about it, the more I think you were trying to confuse all of us), and then say that you're the only one allowed to judge how good a game is. Then you call the entire article BS when they got alot of things right about the PS3 right now (it IS gaining steam, PSN has gotten alot better with the 2.4 firmware series, and we still got a LOT of anticipated games, and Home, to look forward to this year, and knowing Sony and how they have really cleaned up their act this year of keeping their promises to the release dates, we will see these games this year).

This sounds like to me you're only trying to find ways squash yet ANOTHER pro-PS3 article for the simple fact that it IS a pro-PS3 article (which God forbid we would HAVE such on N4G), which is the common behavior of the lunatic fringe 360 fanboys.

(By the way, how you were able to get that last word of your post through the censors is beyond me).

InMyOpinion3749d ago

Get used to it. Some morons still believe that most PS3 games support native 1080p even though they are very few.

We all know MLB 08: The Show was a milestone in gaming...

Tacki3749d ago (Edited 3749d ago )

Next up - "Xbox Fans: Why They Visit Articles In the PS3 Section"

The answer's obvious. It's the same reason most PS3 fans visit the 360 section... to disagree with the 'pro-' articles. And the cycle goes on.

EDIT: Though just for the record, as pro-Sony as I may be... I don't particularly like the title either.

uie4rhig3749d ago

the list is not complete but still

see there, there are 10 games on bluray that run at 1920x1080 native, where GT5P some bits is 1920x1080 native, and 13 PSN games that run on 1920x1080 native, if you count all the other 1080 native resolutions (either i or p) you get 36 games on both PSN and BluRay..
The Xbox 360 on the other hand:
1920x1080: 3 DVD Games and 1 XBLA game
and those are the ONLY 1080 games, none run in 1080i or p there rest... you decide the rest!

psycho3603749d ago


I have set my 50" HDTV on the max supported rez of 1080i. My 360 screen settings is also 1080i. I play all my games at these settings without any problems. The visuals look amazing with gorgeous textures and colors. I dont need to fiddle around with RGB settings or anything so why should i care what rez is the game originally designed for? I think all 360 games have 1080i support mentioned at the back of the cover.

Oner3749d ago (Edited 3749d ago )

Upscaled 1080i & Native 1080 i/p are 2 VERY different things....

GavLam883749d ago

The message i got is this...
There are a lot of great games coming out between now and the end of the year for the PS3. I know most are multi platform, but there are plenty of games to choose from none the less and i am going to run out of money!
Just some that i can think of:
Star Wars: The Force Unleashed
Mirrors Edge
Motorstorm 2
Resistance 2
Fallout 3
Far Cry 2
Resident Evil 5
Little Big Planet
Dead Space
Prince of Persia
Call of Duty 5

easier said then done, well wada did make an exception for 360, but Cliff Bleszinski won't for ps3, (truth)

steriotyp3749d ago

but Cliffy is scum. He made one great game that will be talked about for ages, but doesn't understand how to adapt to a changing market. dog eat dog man

Flameboys need not apply.

The Lazy One3749d ago

Almost all developers do. It's far to early in his cycle to say that he doesn't, and if you look at his interviews he's actually a lot more open to change than you'd expect him to be from the way he pushes his games.

Immortal Kaim3749d ago

There seems to be a lot of these types of Sony articles, justifying the PS3 as great system, why can't the system justify its own purchase with simply a solid lineup of games?

Whoooop3749d ago

It already has... or not??? What do you think??


King Me3749d ago

Why can't people stop writing Articles that hold nothing but the truth,I'm tired of reading the truth over and over again ;)

Immortal Kaim3749d ago

For me personally I'm still on the fence atm. Will LBP push me to purchase it, who knows? It certainly has some great games (MGS4 was amazing) yet I don't know what else really appeals to me. SO Im still in two minds, if it is right for me at this point in time.

Whoooop3749d ago

hehe cool...

I feel the same way towards the 360... Personal appeal is important and the PS3 exclusives are the games that really appeal to me this gen.


If I had the money to spend on another console right now I would buy the 360 though..

Immortal Kaim3749d ago

Exactly, everyone has different opinions on what constitutes as a good game, its great that you have found the console that appeals to you. Don't get me wrong, If I had the spare cash, I would get the PS3 in a flash.

Though Im a little confused with whats happening with the PS3 SKU's in AUS?

titntin3749d ago

It already does.

The stupid fanboy rhetoric of 'theres no games' is irrational delusionment peddled by corporate supporters with an agenda fueled by blind love or hate.

Lets remember that the vast majority of games this gen are multi format, so many of the great titles that people play on a 360, are also being played by PS3 owners (GTA4, COD4, Soul Calibur,Devil May cry 4 etc etc.)

You can add to that a list of other desirable titles that ARE exclusive to the system, and arguably have more diversity than the line up on 360. Some of those titles that I've personally enjoyed include: MGS4, Resistance, MotorStorm, Ninja Gaiden Sigma, Folklore, Sing Star, Buzz, Eye of Judgement, Uncharted, Ratchet and Clank, Gran Turismo, WarHawk, Heavenly Sword and a bunch of others. You can add to that a selection of brilliant PSN titles that I find superior to the offerings on live, and the vast majority of which run in full 1080P: Pixel Junk Monsters & Pixel Junk Eden, Siren, Super Stardust HD - theres lot of quality titles.

Don't get me wrong - I'm not knocking the 360 and have played and enjoyed some of the best the games world has to offer on the machine -particularly last year when it had an exceptional line up. I'll also be first in the queue for GEARS2 and FABLE2 later this year.

But I do tire of the nonsense rhetoric peddled out by tired teenagers with no first hand knowledge saying the PS3 has no games. It absolutely HAS, and to deny it is plain stupidity.

Any real gamer will get their hands on all the machines, as all of them have something valid to offer a real gamer.
Those people pledging allegiance to one piece of plastic or another simply demonstrate their immaturity, which would be funny if they didn't get so damn angry about defending their corporation of choice.

Those of us who really play games will continue to have the most fun, and I'll continue to take them here I find them, as I always have...

The Lazy One3748d ago

Yes... I definitely see more people saying the PS3 has no games than people saying the 360 has no games...

Square-Enix respectfully disagrees!

blackbeld3749d ago

i agree. and why buy 360 if u can play the exactly same games on PC. like gears of war is for PC also. the RROD are same as BSOD that u will get. that sucks u know. Buy PS3 u got everything that will make u'r life easier and better and happier. PS3 is the winning game machine. so its better not to follow the sinking ship(360). Try use u'r brain.
