Over 1,000 gamers were polled to see whether they would have preferred the Blu-Ray drive in the PS3 to be optional or not - by a 2:1 majority people said that Sony made the right decision by including a Blu-Ray drive in every PS3.
Yeah, isn't that strange if you ask that on a PS3 fanboy site...
That's not a poll which has a representative base, let not alone that the questionary was not real based on a lot of research. With one question and no other important facts.
As a person who studied marketing at a University and doing research on daily bases I can say to you all: this means nothing. As we all know the biggest freaking fony fanboy at this site, ssj04 alias ps3lord, alias ps3willrule, alias ps3god and god knows which other nicks, those guys would always say it's a good choice. Even if Sony lies, they stay believers.
So this article, the poll, the outcome is worth nothing
If you took marketing than you should know that the only oppinion that matters is your customers. The one thats putting money in your pocket. Cut damn I want a cheap Blu Ray player, I have a 1080p w. HDMI tv. JUST LET IT BE. DAMN! The movies as well as my 360 games will tie me over untill the good games come out.
ok this is the second survey taken that kicks microsoft in the teeth
the first survey asked gamers if they would buy a ps3 despite its high price
-the general answer was "yes, i dont mind paying that much, 'because i want it' "
now this survey states that gamers prefer the integrated blu-ray drive
i would write the link to the 1st survey but i cant cos im writing this thru my psp
ms tried saying that an optional drive is better, but its down to what consumers want and this survey proves ms wrong
Go out to the public and give me results. Not just ask Playstation fans. Ask people like moms and dads or just real gamers who play different systems. Then comeback with that poll I guarantee you that the results will be different
Blue-ray is a risky business I don't know if it's worth it too early to tell, just remember what happen to the Betamax if you get my drift. UMD for PSP is crap so I'm not sure about the (Sony only) Blue-ray. Nuff said.
This is to be taken with a huge bag of salt. It would be like putting a poll on Major Nelson's or the TeamXbox page and asking if DVD-9 is sufficient for next-gen games. It may be, I don't think so, but you'll get different answers depending on who your audience is.
This just in....PS3 site proclaims console race over, PS3 major winner even with zero consoles produced....
If you want a different answer, just find a 360 fan site and look for a similar poll....
Of course, that won't stop "He-who-must-not-be-named " from trying to spin this into a major Sony "victory" and a reason "everyone" is gonna buy the PS3...
I was going to comment on how ridiculous this poll is but it seems that I have been beat to the punch by ya'll.
In another recent poll taken, 99.5% of PS3 enthusiasts would love to play with each other in the shower
yea they probably do like to do that. And after, they will go have a barbeque with their 600 dolar grill that they got from Best Buy or wherever. Oh wait, thats the George Forman PS3 Grill, I knew it was going to be used for something, I just knew it wasnt for gaming. LOL
Kutaragi did say consumer electronics and it's not a game console it's a computer, so maybe they'll cancel the PS3 and give you the "PS3ERATOR" "Uses the power of the 7 SPE and RSX to not only make your fridge look fuller, but it will display it in true 1080P HI-Def, the future of friderated food starts on with Sony, not Microsoft."
Ask about Bias. It should have been on a site like IGN Gamespot.
That's the only way that would be true.
Yeah ask the XBOX fanboys what they want in a PS3 :):)
Who better to ask than the people are actually going to be using it. If you leave it to the parents they would buy their kids a Nintendo DS or some old school Atari for cheap.
They should have polled random people not PS3 fanboys!! Also they polled hard core gamers not average kids that play for fun. This poll was bogus!
The site the poll was on even said it was not made up of gamers, just solely PS3 fans. I hardley see how this is credible news to post on this site, since the poster is trying to spin words and facts.
Thats what keeps this site interesting. Big or small we all have something to say about it. Even if the article is credible or not.
That is still a big number. A third of your fanbase doesnt want to spend the extra $300 it takes to put in a Blu-Ray. I dont blame them.
where ever the polls from ,it doesn`t concern u 360 guys.u got ur console already and if ps3 fans have no problem with the bluray drive then you`ve got nuthing to complain about.
Whoever said everyone was 360 guys? They are pointing out that asking that question on a PS3 site is dumb, because they are all fans of it.
Look, it appears they wanted the opinion of people that play the playstation and what better place than ps3 site. And also you can’t say that this poll was biased because like 30 something % people said they did not want the blu-ray.
PS. If Sony includes Video Capture from the start Im SOLD!!! And why the hell hasent MS done that yet????? without the use of WMC and a PC
Sony fans don't even go to that website. That website is full of 360 and Wii fans. Now you tell, does it really suprise you when a poll like that come out with the site full of 360 fans and Wii fans. Get at brain peoples, even a kids can figure this simple BS out. I guess 360 fans never had a brain to begain with. LOL so true so real. haha
You can't say 360 fans have no brains, but you can say they really have a problem with the PS3. The thing is, to say bad things about Blu-ray when they have never seen it in action is just a defense mechanism. For example, if you bought something that was currently the best then something better came along, insecure people would say all kinds of bad things to make it look bad. In my opinion there is a big jump between VHS to DVD, and blu-ray to me is a big jump from DVD.
I just came to an epiphany Im a technology fan. So bring it on and let it be. Que Sarrah Sarrah...if they fail oh well why do you 360 fans even care...why because you want them to fail.
And why is it that there are allways more posts from 360 fans in the PS3 section than in the 360 section.
Bad Minded People.
because we're outspoken :)
Well, i say we just sit back and relax. We will never be able to tell what quality this new console is going to be, until it is released. So until then, lets quit eating away with opinions like...oh the blue ray player is going to be terrible, and yada yada yada....do keep in mind that Sony is probably going to loose about 1 billion dollars in the first year of release...that deserves a little respect from us consumers.
Nah I dont hate on the ps3, blu ray is a good technological advance, maybe too soon for my taste but it's ok to have new optical medium for more storage, and the cell and the things inside their box are good for technological advances, bravo to Sony. I just dont like how they fudge things as fact and come back and change it later
At the end all that's going to matter is if Blu Ray Players could outperform the HD DVD players. If both players look equal in quality of the movies then people most likely would want the one that saves them money.
