Difficult To Be A Fanboy In A Recession

If people have been paying attention to the news and rumblings about the current financial trend in technology, more specifically, the games industry then people know that gamers have quite the road ahead of them this year. With platforms warring for their dollars and developers struggling [financially and with the aforementioned platforms], innovation may come second to keeping these respective companies above water.

Kaz Hirai's mullet suicide. Now that would make an interesting new IP for PS3.

ha ha yeah and Greenturds round dome of "moan". Where's that asshat crybaby, Aaron Greenberg, when you need him? What a tool. ahh nevermind I'll take Greenturd anyday.

Powertesties3162d ago

why be a fanboy when you can just be a gamer. That is what I am, that is what most of you are.

We love game, me appreciate them. The amount of detail, the way it engages us, pulls at us, entertains us; that is what is important.

These stupid 'fanboy' remarks are getting on my nerves, as I am sure they are getting on yours.

Fanboys are young kids who act immaturely. Gamers are mature adults. Which are you?

gw4k3162d ago

You said it testies. You made such a good point and I agree with ya. This could be a new movement. Gamers for the Win!

motogamer3162d ago

i am tired of fanboy bs as well. grow up everyone.
go gamers and go powertesties.

ordellsway3162d ago

You got my bubbles folks. Go gamers, not fanboys.

Gamertags3162d ago

I would love to see this site be friendly to all consoles. The 360 is great. The games are great. Live is great. The PS3 is great. Games are great. PSN is great.

Simple as that.

Silellak3162d ago (Edited 3162d ago )

There is so much love in this thread that I simply must join in.

As I've said before, it doesn't matter what console you own or prefer - we're all gamers, and ridiculing or insulting someone just because they prefer one console over another - it doesn't matter WHICH console they prefer - is simply absurd.

Viva gamers!

@1.9:

Dude, seriously, you couldn't keep that crap out of this thread? I realize you're just a sad, bored little troll, but there are plenty of other articles to post in. Leave us ACTUAL gamers in peace.

games4fun3162d ago

join you guys in this i still dont understand the hostility, i usually only say fanboy comments in reply to others.

anyway this movement should be called gamers peace, or the dharma initiative. (too much lost a couple of nights ago)

Aaron Greenterd3162d ago

when your competition is twice as expensive and still sells the same as you during a global recession

but yeah we are in 1st place as long as you don't factor in the Wii

Joey Greco RULES3162d ago (Edited 3162d ago )

There's always time for fanboys to go on a riot. They breed of negativity.

jadenkorri3162d ago

who is worse, a ps3 fanboy, or a 360 fanboy..

LeGenDx3162d ago

ps3 v 360
was actually started from the xbox fanbase
with there " you have no games "
" your graphics suks !"
"mgs4 suks but we still want it !"

Silellak3162d ago

Don't be ridiculous. Neither side is particularly worse, and neither side "started it".

Fanboys have existed since the days of Nintendo and Sega, if not before. If the internet was popular during the days of the SNES vs. Genesis, then the flame wars would've easily put the 360 vs. PS3 flame wars to shame.

Can you imagine a thread on N4G about Mortal Kombat on SNES/Genesis? "Ours has better graphics!" "Ours has blood and real fatalities!" "YOU SUCK!" "NO YOU SUCK!"

I shudder to think. This generation is tame, in comparison. We have people squinting at HD videos and counting pixels to try and figure out which version of a multiplatform game might be a tiny bit superior. These children have no idea what it's like to see games where the difference between platforms is blatantly obvious.

InMyOpinion3162d ago (Edited 3162d ago )

You are close to the truth, my friend. I am the sole reason for this fanboy war and I take full responsibility for it. It all started back in 2005 when I was just a young innocent man who loved gaming. Once I layed eyes on the 360 something changed inside of me. I began hearing voices in my head telling me to "start it"..."START IT!!". A few days later the first flame of the fanboy fire was born. I remember it to this day, the ingenious words I typed on that poor unexpecting gaming forum. I had planned it meticulously. It went something like this:

"T3h P$3 !z t3h Suxx0rzz!!!"

The rest is history.

CHEF3162d ago

I started visiting this website in late 2005 to get more info on the Xbox 360's upcoming launch. You should have seen the bashing and the overall disdain for Microsoft's new console. 'xbot', xbox 1.5, 'ps3 is sooooo going to own the 360 with 1080p graphics / 120 frames per second / life like visuals'.....just to name a few.
My point is....from my experience, it was kinda the other way around.

LeGenDx3162d ago

speaking from my experience when the ps3 first came out. I never seen such fanboyism in my life !.

and @ Silellak yes i know fanboys has been around for along time.

Being a fanboy is easy

X-BAWX >>> PS3

see?

Its easier for me though I guess because its actually true :-)

LeonSKennedy4Life3162d ago

Nothing says irony like good ol' fashion ignorance.

Silellak3162d ago

You seem to have accidentally posted in the Gamer Zone. Don't worry, it happens.

Next time click that little "Open Zone" tab, post there, and stop making the rest of us 360 owners look bad.

Gun_Senshi3162d ago

nah gametime is not a fanboy. He is just mentally challanged.

LeonSKennedy4Life3162d ago

Thank you. I hate that. Unfortunately, there are more PS3 owners making us all look dumb than 360 owners. I'm a PS3 owner myself...obviously.

Bubbles for you two though!

Plain and simple just look how they act on the internet

XBOX 360 success just eats at them all day

its funny though just shows what kind of people they are.

Sk8boyP3162d ago (Edited 3162d ago )

Plain and simple just look at how they act on n4g

Killzone 2 and the '09 PS3 line up just eats at them all day

It's kinda sad really, wait. No it's not ^_^

BGDad3162d ago

Why exactly do we give a crud what the 360 is doing? We really dont... After all what games does it have? Absolutely nothing... Enjoy the DLC, Glitches of War, and whatever other games you all think are AAA titles...

360 = garbage...

I dont care how many consoles are sold, or who bought what, I really just dont give a F... I play games...

Enjoy the 360 and whatever games you get in the next few months... Oh wait.... YOU HAVE NONE

PS3 HAS THE BEST LOOKING GAME ON ANY CONSOLE.. FEAST UP AND DIGEST IT!

BLUR1113162d ago (Edited 3162d ago )

thanks guys for making my point more valid
:)

but you do know some people do have both consoles and are not just fanboys right? Just give up.

(Oh wait.... YOU HAVE NONE)

LOL you really think there are no 360 games coming? Sony has announced all of their 09 games already because they are desperate right now.
its either make or break time for them.

Sk8boyP3162d ago (Edited 3162d ago )

No, thanks BLUR111 for making MY point valid. Posting a fanboyish comment such as that

EDIT: and no, Sony has NOT announced all their games for this year, but I bet you thought that seeing as we have a slew of exclusive titles. You probably didn't think it was possible for there to be more, lol you fail.

dukadork23162d ago

nah, we're just spoiled with the best stuff so it's hard to get motivated by your crappy vaporware

but keep crying xb!tch, we have all the tear buckets we need, and you're entertaining us until killzone2 comes out.

lol
