Everyone remembers 2005's E3 when Sony showed the PlayStation 3 on stage and said to the world this is the best thing you will ever experience in gaming.
eh...seems like the media will stop that from happening with all of the recent anti-hype articles
Will ur site ever live up to the hype?
sry, double post
Everyone remembers 2005’s E3 when Sony showed the PlayStation 3 on stage and said to the world this is the best thing you will ever experience in gaming. Now jump to 2009 and all we got was broken promises,lots of wishes and the majority of us hoping for updates like in-game invites and video messaging. It’s been three years and we as gamers have got little or nothing for being loyal to the Sony brand. Now don’t get me wrong Microsoft isn’t any better and Nintendo and hardcore just don’t mix, but we expect more from the company that gave us games we all know and love like Jak & Daxter, Crash Bandicoot and a bunch of others. Sony reminds me of one Loony Tunes cartoons where they show the us what we want to see and then pull it back real quick and say na na na na . Like the in-game XMB, we were suppose to have that when it was released and it was nowhere it be found for two years. The problem with Sony is Sony itself, everything has it go through Japan, but how do people in Japan know what people in the U.S or Europe want. Sony, please start listening to the fans now that’s what Microsoft is good at but, sometimes you can listen but not hear and I think that’s what Sony is doing right now. If you advertise they will come but if they don’t know, they can’t come.
Oh No....... Having the highest rated games of 08 plus the most anticipated games of 09 is not enough. isn't the gaming media the media that follows the Video Game Industry, u know the Industry of Video Games. Does no one no longer care about playing the best videos game?
was the only company to give false promises. microsoft said every single game would run at 60 fps well what bullshit, even their top game halo 3 didn't run at 720 p or 60 fps.
@MasFlowKiller I totally agree. it seems it is no longer about the best games out there. no longer about the best tech. no longer about quality. so what is it about now?? price and quantity i guess
OK in the spirit of this article let me mention some of the thing sony has done right. Sony provided High quality tittle quicker AKA(Uncharted 1, Best Looking console game up until Gears 2) Best line up of 08, just go to metacritic and check, that is if your good with numbers. Evolving Online, Sony has more Online centric games: Warhawk, Socom, Little Big Planet and some really big one coming this years; Fat Princess, DC Universe Online, Free Realm, The Agency. Plus Resistance 2 60MP lag free. Home. Did anyone else see The EA space in home. do i have to say anything else. Plus Resistance 2 60MP lag free. PSN is free. Plus Resistance 2 60MP lag free. you don't need any type of paid subscription to download movies from the video store. Plus Resistance 2 60MP lag free. i mean right now sony is doing more rights the wrong. with one smart price cut even the fanboys will have to stop crying( gametrailers, Kotaku, GameRaidar, IGN USA, gamesonsmash)
if all this is true then I wonder why the X360 is not touted anymore as the console for the "hardcore" games...what happens to the slogan "best games line-up"...best graphics on X360...why is not number of AAA exclusives nor metacritic used anymore when comparing the consoles?... now it's only about sales (PS3 is selling better than the X360 anyway during it's first 2 years despite of the the cheaper console being sold for 399)... and of course, now it's about PS3 against itself LOL
its just sad that you guys even take these ps3 is doomed articles serious enough to even post a comment.just dont click through people. and it wont get 700 rating or w/e. when ever i see a ' is it the end for ps3?!' i just dont even click it cause i know its going to be a bunch of biitching in the comments. the people that post these shure know how to get most of our attention but just fight it by ignoring it completely. ps3 isnt doomed and you shouldnt even bother cliking the description either. @below, wtf are you talking about? thats what? a 5 sentence responce? so cause i make a quick comment somehow im taking this seriously? im not the one thats posting a whole page of text like the guy i responded to. ahh w/e just stfu i dont even care what you say.
"your taking this post WAAYY too seriously first of all. stop being a fanboy. cause only a fanboy would type that much over a pointless 'ps3 is doomed' article #843 you dont actually believe them do you? they said the same thing about the ps2 having a 10 year life cycle also. ps3 came out 2 years ago... so in reality the ps4 will be out in 3-4 more years. who the hell would care about the ps3 anyways when the ps4 will be out. :D" IRONY
and since the PS3 actually got great and better games than the xb360, it's only been about sales.
the PS3 is the (((Hype)). The PS3 is what's now, what's next. That's why you and no one else can't stop talking / thinking about it. Get a grip.
its the games for it an 09 looks promising
Complaining about no in-game XMB? Give me a break, we've had that for over half a year now! These critics need to stop living in the past.
I've owned a PS3 since March of 2007 and I went through a gaming drought on the system that was supposed to be murder. I played Resistance everyday and got Fight Night going but for the most part there wasn't a whole lot out there. Then came Uncharted. Then MGS4. Then LBP. Then the multi-plats got even better in some instances than the 360. I don't get why people still are so down on the system. I've played 360. I've played Wii. Good systems but nothing that makes me flat out mad I got a PS3. If anything, my time with 360 has reaffirmed my pleasure with PS3. My roommate's 360 has died 3 times and his fourth is dying as we speak. If anything, he actually wishes he had waited and got a PS3. These articles all fail big time. It's not Sony's fault MS is giving you nothing but a Halo RTS in 09. It's not Sony's fault that MS charges you to use a peer to peer service. It's enough with this crap already.
MasFlowKiller while I do respect and agree to some of your comments, you didnt have to say "Resistance 2 60MP lag free" so many times to make it look like you had more to say..
its the fanboys and dumba$$ articles giving false information that's bringing down the ps3...if reporters just did their job properly, im sure the ps3 would even be a bigger hit, but every article is the ps3 is failing etc, etc, etc...
Is this real all of these articles? I'm am perplexed by this constant Sony bashing. They were #1 now Nintendo is, so what. If this is still a M$ propaganda sort of thing get off it in every way Nintendo is #1 on the planet now start speaking the truth 360 has already lost now its a matter of time before they end up dead last they are not in demand by any stretch and price keeps them in the game. the Hardware is unreliable and the games are pretty good but not good enough for me to support them any more. I have a 360 and I'm content with my PS3 as my main console. M$ sites just face the facts M$'s days are over Nintendo crushed them from a year headstart and once the PS3 price drops call it quits with gaming please your a nuisance not a solution or forward thinking by any stretch. All they do is copy from online from Sega Dreamcast to lips and wireless controllers. They've done nothing but waste money with their worthless hardware rushing to be first and pay for it.
wait a minute how is it that gamesonsmash is approving a gamesonsmash article? isnt that ... you know wrong?
I've reported JPinter from PSU for doing the same thing. I think Hiphopgamer does it as well. Not that anyone seems to care but I agree with you that it's not according to the rules.
Silogon does it too. sad isn't it? any monkey can write a blog/website and post it to n4g to get hits.
Anyone else catch that he said in game XMB didn't exist? Has this gentleman even turned his PS3 on since he got it back in 2006?
Easy to say Harder to do.
If you say so.
You just love to waste your time by trolling PS3-related articles don't you? Killzone 2 is one of the prime examples in how the PS3 is and will continue to in the future live up to the hype that has surrounded the systems capabilities.
Well the xBox 360 hasn't!!! ;-D People hyped the xBox 360, and it's boring, i can get 99% of the games on it on my P.C(And guess what, i don't want any of them anyway!!!) I'm loving the PS3!!! ;-P It seems to get better and better;)
and just as killzone 2 is about to take over the planet, i checked out some yakuza 3 footage and it was immediately obvious that we have yet another huge PS3 exclusive hit on our hands. http://www.videogaming247.c... face it doubters: we have an avalanche of amazing games coming out on PS3 the only hype that's falling apart is the anti PS3 hype
@gamfreak Your highschool picture is nice although u might want to remove loser from ur forehead. Anway, it will in your wet dreams
When you consider that Killzone 2, a game that will be coming out just a little over 2 years after the PS3 was released has pushed the boundaries of this generation of gaming like never before, I truly believe that the quote from Sony: "this is the best thing you will ever experience in gaming" is actually coming true, it just took a while for it to happen. I mean, when you've got websites comparing KZ2 to Crysis, then you know that the PS3 is going to be something REALLY special with time and it's going to deliver games of such high caliber that the competition will have a difficult time matching or even coming close to it. Everything doesn't come instantly, and some things just takes a little patience. The PS3 had a slow/rocky start, but since then Sony's got back on track, given us plenty of good games, and has even better games and updates on the way.... and Great things always come with patience ;)
Honestly, the PS3's first title that blew me away was Rachet & Clank FTOD. Rock solid 60fps, amazing animations, tons of things going on at once, and good old Ratchet & Clank gameplay. Totally underrated title that needs to get more credit when it comes to graphics discussions especially being a 2007 title.
ps1 & ps2 had a rocky start & took about 3 years to pick up steam ,the ps3 seems to be following in the same path. 10 years son!
Did I wake up in 2007?
it seems that the "media" is stuck at that year
Every year being the same is no excuse for forgetting what year it is.
That was fail Why dis. Just thought you should know.
PS3= many pure quality exclusives except the flops
good thing u said flops i was about get on ur a$$ lol
Thta means that all products by sony were flops and will continue on this path forever.
Oh jeez this article is so funny. I mean hes gotta be in some hole somewhere in the desert while typing this. 2008 was the start of Sony's kept promises and returns the love of its fanbase by bringing out the big guns this year. If this was 2007 i woulda been brainwashed but i had a great gaming year in 2008 so this just reeks of flaming.
You can't trust Sony after the PS3. Nothing they have ever said regarding anything was true. Please tell me one thing that Sony promised which actually came true. Here's a short list of lies: 1) PS3 launch date: Spring 2006 2) MGS4 in 2007 3) PS3 plays PS2 games. 4) Home: many promised features missing 5) Online features to rival Xbox Live. For MGS4 2007 promise, go to end of video here: http://www.electrogarden.co...
but then broke people cried that it was to expensive! so hence the crippled PS3 versions.. and also this is a bad timing for Sony's expensive console since there's this recession stuff going on..
it already does. And I dont think Killzone is going to hurt that any.
actually this article is an improvement over others cause it shifted to "will it live" from being totally "doomed". :)
how it will be determined? is more for the customers to decide with their preferences. Either way the PS3 is a great system, and it will only get better. Sony supports their PS brand with plenty of resources. this type of articles are nothing new, and gamers will enjoy their systems either way
I enjoy blueray movies 1080p maybe.
MGS4 got me so into it, that i bought the essentials collection and currently playing MGS from the PS 1. incredible game, AMAZING production values, just fascinating Edit*********** @ below hey i suck too, but the quality of the game is so unique that i convince myself to keep playing it. it just feel awesome from the very beginning.
me too man. MGS for the win. too bad i suck, im stuck on the first tower fighting the HIND-D. sigh.
woah! you havent played mgs1? i had it when i was 11 and i think ive beaten it 10 times- the only game ive ever done that with. i just love it.

your taking this post WAAYY too seriously first of all. stop being a fanboy. cause only a fanboy would type that much over a pointless 'ps3 is doomed' article #843 you dont actually believe them do you? they said the same thing about the ps2 having a 10 year life cycle also. ps3 came out 2 years ago... so in reality the ps4 will be out in 3-4 more years. who the hell would care about the ps3 anyways when the ps4 will be out. :D
you are pathetic, you do not understand what a "10 year life cycle" is after its been repeated over and over to you. the console will remain supported for at least 10 years before being discontinued. The PS2 still as 10 year life cycle, and it's still going strong. You know who will care about the PS3 once the PS4 hits? The same ones who still care about the PS2 right now, some people will lag a little behind on gaming just because either it isn't their priority or money isn't always as available as they would like. And it will be great for them because they'll still be getting great service like free online. The original comment is not taking this too seriously, he is simply providing valid information that people like you should read and understand instead of thinking the PS3 is failing and Sony doesn't deliver, when it has delivered 100 times more than Microsoft has with the xbox.
@ Chris_GTR1 ~ So because Apocalypse posts truthful, valid, information of which you can't deny; you attempt to try and bring him down a notch by insulting him huh? Sounds/Seems like you are the only fanboy here. Especially when your information is absolutely wrong. Lets take a look at how many times you are mistaken right here okay? "they said the same thing about the ps2 having a 10 year life cycle also. ps3 came out 2 years ago... so in reality the ps4 will be out in 3-4 more years." 1) PS2 10 year life cycle IS well on it's way. Just 11 months to go or so, looks like Sony is going to accomplish EXACTLY what they promised. Unlike another console maker. 2) If the PS2 launched in 2000 and it is 2009 but the PS3 launched 2 years ago in 2007 that means the PS2 was on the market for 7 almost 8 years (because of the extra months between the 2 when released). So lets do some math. OK? ~ PS3 came out 2 years ago + your "ps4 will be out in 3-4 more years." = 5-6 years. How does that match up?...It doesn't. In YOUR world and view it does. But that is not the truth. Which is what you and MANY others do consistently on this site. Post false, fake, biased lies & misinformation in an attempt to make a weak point. The REALLY funny thing is that your post actually has more to do with how M$ handled the original Xbox and how they are going to do the same with the 360. I almost wouldn't doubt that the PS2 will physically outlast 2 gens of M$'s (Xbox & 360) and if not, it will still have lasted 10 years which will be longer than M$'s combined. M$'s track record of lack of support is 100% confirmed as minimal & short, whereas Sony has supported EVERY SINGLE model of their consoles for way longer than others can "claim". Sony's actions speak louder than your words... Edit: BTW excellent post Apocalypse, +1 & Bubbles.
Don't forget to mention that all those updates were FREE and still are.
Great post pure facts and truths only the haters deny. Bubbles for you i always support your posts gotta keep the real smart people talking not the dumbass xbox fanboys who are to broke to afford a real console.
The PS3 does some good things, and Sony has invested a ton of money and effort in making it a decent console. But it is too little, too late, unfortunately. For the first 2 years, they were dog paddling in rough seas, barely able to breathe. So they made impossible promises to keep up with Microsoft. Nintendo survived because they raised the white flag and came up with a different strategy. Sony chose to take MS on "mano a mano". Sony is losing in 2 key areas: Price & Library.
I don't really deal in hype. I like certainties. And the PS3 certainly has a lot of games I enjoy so I could really care less what the media thinks of it or Sony or Microsoft or Nintendo.
Knowing what I was getting, looking for, I can say that so far that the PS3 has lived up to mostly all of its expectations. The only points where its failed was the Tivo-like DVR.
it sure as hell isn't able to produce those 4d graphics we heard about, or what about the 120fps games? sony overhyped their sh1t as usual, and it still hasn't shown me sh1t compared to what they LIED about in 2005 and 2006. hell i know why now sony fanboys on n4g have a "lieing problem", look at what example they worship. i would respect sony more if before they'd release a new console they were even HALF honest about it.
Nice pseudo journalism.
first of all, lets keep one little fact in mind, the ps2 just became the first console to sell 50 million units in NA. better yet is the other perspective of it, it has sold almost 140-150 million worldwide, meaning that 80-100 million consoles have been sold outside of NA, and still selling. now onto the ps3. in two years, MS bought AC, E5, GTA4, FF13, teken6, all previously ps3 exclusive at 1 point, so its safe to say that MS is a casual ps3 gamer. and considering the insane amount of negative press and bias the ps3 had and still carry with it, plus the highest priced console in history, and a global recession , I think that the appropriate question should be; "is there really a scenario in existence in which the ps3 would failed to live up to the hype and against the anti-hype?
Well it don't look like it will.
No. Nothing ever lives up to the "hype" I love my Blackberry Storm, yet it's criticized constantly. Point is, their is always some little weenie out their to pee on everyone's parade. It will live up to the hype in a lot of fans eyes, but never in general.
The PS3 will stop living up to the hype around the same time MS stops making cuts to the games division!!!
So... that would be a "no" but what the hell it's a "10yr console with potential" if you don't mind waiting.
