Even though the Xbox 360 is solidly in second place, Microsoft seems more concern with Sony than they are with Nintendo.
this articles...why must someone submit this?
Microsoft has more money, why would they be scared?
But sony is twice the size of microsoft ^^. They have reason to worry, they know sony is capable of dominating so they want to make sure they keep them low. Microsoft will take big hits just to do this. So of course microsoft is scared of sony, sony should of been scared of microsoft at the start of this generation too, maybe they wouldn't of dropped the ball at launch as badly as they did if they didn't underestimate microsoft and overestimate their fanbase.
Why? Isn't it obvious? Look at the picture! It's scared because if you put the 360 on top of the PS3's curved surface, the 360 might tip over! You can't stack them like that. =/
MS has more money but that funding isn't sitting in the Xbox division. People always make such comments as if MS is willing to commit the whole of Redwood for the 360. You are grossly overestimating it's importance to the company. If Windows 7 does a bellyflop in sales then the 360 division will suffer as MS makes cuts. Over 80% of the revenue for Microsoft comes from the OS and office products alone. That is their bread and butter. The Xbox division is actually quite low on the totem pole.
The 360 is making them a profit. You don't cut businesses that are making a profit or even breaking even unless your company is going bankrupt. It would just be economically stupid. edit: 4 people so far need to take an economics course.
Didn't the original Xbox cost MS billions? I doubt that the Xbox Division is in the green yet.
i dont think they are scared. But it makes sense for Microsoft to be more concerned with competition that is more even compared to them. I mean the Wii is more like a high selling toy than a game system, and MS knows they wont catch up to Wii sales. So they might as well focus on competing with Sony, who makes similar games of quality, not cheap $10 Wii balloon games.
lol... the lazy one has made a very obvious post, yet the disagrees. Afraid is probably the wrong word to use in this case, but rather recognizing your competitor. Something Sony failed to do initially and look at them now. Not exactly dominating and reduced to competing with MS for second place... Playstation used to be the King!
Microsoft mentions Sony and PS3 about 16 times every month in their NPD reactions. And some of you think there isn't a glaring possibility that MS really is afraid of Sony?
MS is turning a profit on current operating costs. And you are correct. That does not mean they wiped out all previous Xbox debt - including their billion dollar RROD payout. They will cut operating costs even if an area is generating revenue. Why disband Ensemble when the game sold so well? Why cut into MS Flight Simulator when it is a great seller for Microsoft Games Studios?
Unless Sony's the boogeyman and Microsoft is Scooby Doo I see know reason why microsoft should be afraid of sony. OK, now seriously why make an article like this, of course microsoft is CONCERNED about sony, they would be foolish not to be. Yes they've made some stupid comments about sony, same as sony has done in regards to microsoft and even their fanbase, its called advertising when its done right it works it, when its done wrong people see through it and you they end up just looking like stupid comments. The headline should read "Why are Microsoft and Sony both fighting so hard" but then the answer to that is obvious so all though more accurate wouldn't generate nearly as many hits.
You still don't cut a sector in debt if it's now making a profit. You don't cut profitable sectors unless they are trending to go into debt. They are trending up. It's still economically dumb. And I see the numbers gone up a ways from 5 on the people that need to take an econ course.
morganfell says: "Why disband Ensemble when the game sold so well? Why cut into MS Flight Simulator when it is a great seller for Microsoft Games Studios?" Well, it seems MS is moving to a different business model. It seems to be cheaper for MS to fund the development of new games IP than owning and managing their own studios.
They're all working together behind the scenes, laughing as they manufacture sales from brand loyalty and fanboy wars. ;P
Things appear to be trending down, from what I see. The last quarter, MS sold more, brought in more revenue and yet still profits were down 60% year over year. And that was on increased holiday revenue. What's going to happen to those numbers when the holiday revenue dries up? To me it looks like something's seriously wrong in the MS games division but I won't be completely convinced until after this quarter. If revenue is still up year over year and yet they're losing money now where they were making a profit last year at this time I think serious questions will need to be asked at the corporate level.
...if Sony was ever in trouble, on a whim Bill Gates could alone buy SOny with how much money he has. I mean come on, these articles are all retarded to begin with but really, its not like if the XBOX starts to faulter that they will have to file for bankruptcy or face the possibility of closing its doors like companies past like Sega and 3DO and Atari. You really think that, at the end of the day, Microsoft gives a flying FRACK about Sony? That would be like the steelers or pats being worried about the lions.
To add to the economics course. Maybe you don't cut a profitable division but what if you can make more profit using the capital for something else? P.S. Go Lions!
You got to realize that Microsoft possibly wont even make back any profit on the 360.. the RROD really hurt them on that one, they are finally getting money earned on each 360 sold, but have taken losses other places.
Sony has ties to all things multimedia. Sony music Sony online entertainment sony pictures Sony computer entertainment sony communications im easily leaving out over 200 advantages that sony has over microsoft. Your comment is the most childish thing i have ever read on this site. Microsoft WISHES they had the relationships sony has, if that were the case then we would ALL be buying HDDVD's. We would also ALL be buying the 360 and making it our home media hub/ entertainment centerpiece. Guess what? all the MS money in the world cant help MS. on topic: if i were ms i would be scared right now, here i am launching 1 full year ahead of this console cycle and my manufacturing is failing. so i begin badmouthing my opponents, and enticing their "exclusives" to jump ship for a CHECK. buying timed exclusivity, talking smack, AND I STILL CANT SLOW SONY DOWN. If i were ms i would be scared. Where are my exclusives? why is my hardware failing? is gears1 the best we have to offer?
Then you do one of two things. take out a loan for the more profitable thing, or you wait till the profit ur already making is enough to do the project. You still don't cut things that are making a profit and doing well.
This isn't just a "console WARRRZ!" thing. If you're more than 5 years old, you should have enough sense to realize that Microsoft is a very skittish company. When ANY competition crops up, they run around like chickens with their heads cut off. And I'll say it again, this isn't a "console WARRZZZ!", anti-360, sentiment. Sony is simply Microsoft's latest target. Microsoft has displayed this sort of behavior for decades.
The only thing wrong with your thinking is that MS picked this fight. They're the ones who moved into consoles after Sony opened the industry. Just like they got - tried to get - into the iPod's business. Competition doesn't crop up on them, they crop up on competition. Established competition that they use any and all means to topple. Which sadly, doesn't include making solid products. Give advertising priority over quality.
This is the exact same way they acting during the PC era. That's why I wonder...if Microsoft is firmly in second place and they're beating Sony/PS3 so badly that Sony can never fight back, then why are they so concerned with what Sony is doing? They should be focused on extending the lead by bringing more games to their consumers and potential consumers who want to buy their system. But who am I kidding, I'll be labeled as Microsoft hater either way. Cowards will always disagree and not prove me wrong. It's okay you know. TheRealSpy: You're missing the point.
look at lifetime sales of games and consoles. i think you'll see that the credit you're giving to sony belongs to nintendo. sony muscled in on nintendo the same way MS muscled in later. pretty hypocritical to say MS used tons of money to buy exclusives and try to bring sony down when sony did the same thing in the 90s to nintendo. and since when do you call something 'competition' if it means it's unacceptable for another company to get in on the action? it sounds like you think sony should just have a monopoly and no companies should be allowed to move into gaming. and seriously...who cares? why are gamers so concerned with the business end and the petty back and forth between these 2 companies? screw em. just enjoy the games.
errr if memory serves me right... Nintendo went around sony with their "joint console thing" and sony decided to compete with their new "CD" technology... so they did not muscle through to nintendo, nintendo deserved it.
So wait, let me see if I got you correct. For Sony (assuming they did to begin with) to "monopolize" is immoral, but it's alright for MS to do it. And...Sony got the exclusives because of the better format (uhh...Sony had disc-based format while Nintendo had cartridges). If you notice carefully, ulti never said that competition isn't good. I'm not sure where you got that. What is going on here is that MS is being WAY too c0cky and thinking one dimensionally about the console war, and it's rather ridiculous that one company's remarks get them all sorts of bad press and everyone spinning things badly, which someone else's ignorance and business practices constantly gets a free pass. It's annoying that no one calls MS out on their sh!t but we're so ready to catch Sony on the littlest mistakes, and make good things into bad things. This is like what I've been saying: what did Sony ever do to deserve THIS much bad press. Then we say how dumb such articles are, and we suddenly get the fanboys screaming "OMG, Sony Defense Force at it again". Then, finally, someone makes a good article describing everything fairly, and what do we do? Use the report button because God forbid we see a fair article that doesn't slam Sony in some way. But lo and behold, Analoghype's BS continues to be approved faster than f#cking lighting on this site (and the ones that approve THEIR BS b!tch the second HHG's stuff hits the front page. What a world we live in.). And then people wonder why we get irritated and come out in droves. Maybe if the press did their job like Associated Content just did, we wouldn't be this touchy about the gaming media and wouldn't treat stuff like this so seriously.
Pretty sure he was talking to Godmars. @ultimolu: You'll be labeled as a microsoft hater because you're a microsoft hater. No other reason is necessary.
i was talkin to godmars. i think ulti commented just a few minutes before me so his comment wasn't there when i was typing mine. also, i think you're taking my intentions wrong. i am not defending the actions of any corporation. i think MS sucks. i just happen to also think sony sucks (not to say the systems suck...i own and occasionally enjoy both). there seems to be a pervading idea among the majority of the N4G community that if you don't like sony, you automatically love MS or vice versa. this is not the case. i was simply saying that it is wrong to make the claim that MS has no right to enter the gaming community. it's open competition and anyone with enough money can get in on the action. not only that, but MS was in the software end of gaming for years before the got into the console war. it was a logical step for them to make, especially since sega dropped outta the race. EDIT: also, this is not a balanced, well written article. it's flame bait. the title alone is enough to make that clear, but did you actually read the thing? the reason MS and Sony focus on each other is because they are targeting a different audience than nintendo. think of it like this. the vast majority of computer users use windows. but "hardcore" pc users use linux. linux is targeting a different audience, a more narrow audience. this is what's going on with consoles right now. everyone over 40 knows what a wii is, but they don't know what a ps3 or a 360 is. they call them both playstation. and look what games sell best on wii, games that are meant to turn on for 10 minutes, play around, then go away for a day...or a week. MS and Sony aren't afraid of each other...no more than any other competing companies. they are just trying to outdo one another for bigger market share. if this article was written that way, i wouldn't have issue with it. the issue is that it was clearly written from the perspective of someone who sides very much with sony. it's not an unbiased approach.
In fairness, Sony has also said that they don't feel that they are directly in competition with the Wii. That being said, it seems like all Microsoft (especially Aaron Greenberg) do is attack Sony's console. Personally, I'd prefer to hear more about games they have lined up for this year, or other relevant details about their own console.
Its because the 3FIXME fails again... http://www.metacritic.com/g... and again... http://www.metacritic.com/g... and again... http://www.metacritic.com/g...
Don't forget to add Star Ocean and Halo Wars to the Microsoft Flop Hall of Shame.
Star Ocean wasn't a flop -.- Did you really expect it to reach AAA status? (If so, you fooled yourself)
You must be kidding yourself. All the bots on this site Hyped Star Ocean till no tomorrow. Then they got quiet when they realized it was nowhere near as good as they were hoping. Last hope indeed.
MS only bashes competition instead of advertising like adults.
you know that goes both ways. no ones the middle man here.
Which of the two actually bothers to advertise its games? (Think Halo. Think Gears. Think not Killzone 2.)
well put it this way, MS bash Sony 85% of the time, while Sony rarely ever mentions the 360, only what services they provide, e.g "Access PSN for FREE to play online against your friends!", showing what they offer without mentioning the 360 at all.
are you kidding me you think only ms does the bashing ... since 2007 sony has also been bashing ms left and right .. how? through its first party developers.. apparently every ps3 exclusive that comes out from their studios .. the developers open interviews with .. not possible on 360... even psn's flower had them claiming this.... then a 3rd party game like mgs comes .. now konami gains nothing from saying not possible on 360 ... so what does sony do... they have a playstation ceo suit come in for konami and say .. mgs not possible on 360... bashing will go on for decades... hell even nintendo said their wii fit sold as much as the ps 3 themselves... its about time someone shook the playstations from their pedestal... and before this gen there was no chance of that happening of course what the greenturd guy said about ps3 hemorrhaging business in retail is total bs.. that would just go under the whining category rather than flame bait
Microsoft uses funds which should be going into development of games to advertise, while sony is making games. I don't know why people keep moaning about how much better ms is at advertising, I prefer sony because they make more/better games. I don't see an ad and think thank god for sony... I see God of war and uncharted ,then think that.
I have seen maybe a few God of War commercials and just a few Uncharted. On the other hand i saw Halo 3 left and right and Gears of War 2 left and right as well. I see way more advertising coming from MS then Sony. In almost anything, movies too. Have you noticed whenever in any show or movie they are playing a console its always an Xbox? Just recently i saw the movie The Comebacks (pretty retarded movie) and he was using the Xbox 360 to get his football plays from. I have yet to see a PS3. Mind you the PS3 has been on market quite long enough to establish itself too. And MS has been too and should be farther down the road than it is now.
^ ur absolutely right .. even i noticed that .. shows like house, two and a half men, 30 rock have xbox product placements all over the set.. quite a few movies too.. esp two and a half men... there was a scene where they pan out to a table in jakes room and to my surprise sitting on top of it was master chiefs life size helmet an original xbox and xbox 360 unit and a halo 3 dvd..
I love when people - who clearly don't own a 360 - make it sound like just because MS doesn't have the best/any in-house devs, that the platform is a vacant wasteland, devoid of any enjoyable content. They might not be exclusives, but then 360 doesn't really need exclusives lately.
@ Shbzshar You are wrong though. Sony and it's affiliates never say "not possible on 360" if 2nd or 3rd party devs want to say that it's not on sony but even most of them say "only possible on PS3" Similar to what Whitto said. They always stay away from trash talking because it's good business policy and good practice. In many ways each company reflects it's fans I feel. sony with it's mouth very closed and it is a very stealthy company because I feel they think the 360 is so dated and broken it may not qualify as competition. They prove this with amazing first party games. MS on the other hand is way over the top and accusing and arrogant trying like crazy to justify the 360 when it's absolutely obvious which system has games coming and which doesn't... I owned a 360 icarus. See my blog for full details. It's really not all it's cracked up to be. But yes sony does need to advertise more I agree. This is also a really crap article with nothing new to offer and nothing in the way of journalism that is useful. It is lame and flamebait and reported as such.
A good thought out article regarding the PS3 and 360. Hey it also logically makes sense.
How would you know?
microsoft is always afraid of competition, its in their culture. in the past, when they cannot beat a competitor, they will just bully and buy them. but now, facing them are Sony, Apple and Google, microsoft cannot seem to use their money to buy competition so they are diverting back to their sh*tty practices like buying Yahoo to increase marketshare against Google; using the mac brand in their advertisements; and finally releasing a garbage console (if its even considered a console) just to have a "market lead" and look what happened... RRoD backfires on it.
"and look what happened"... lol. Yeah... Sony went from 1st place and global console dominance with more than 140,000,000 console sold... to being on 3rd! I mean... Microsoft last generation was on 3rd... so, jumping to 2nd is great... but Sony... fall to last.. losing even to Nintendo. You make it sound as if Sony have anything to celebrate about... And let's not even talk about games.. since most games that used to be exclusive on the playstation in previous generation are now being made on the xbox 360... ohh and about the whole "microsoft cannot seem to use their money to buy competition so they are diverting back to their sh*tty practices like buying Yahoo to increase marketshare against Google;" show your level of ignorance... every company buys to grab marketshares... Can you name how microsoft is bullying Sony and Nintendo or google.. and name what practice they are making that non of them would? By the way... in an attempt to educate you and reduce by 0.0001 your level of ignorance (though I'm sure is not possible); here is a list of companies Sony has acquire over sometime in order to get marketshare... * 1987 — On November 18, 1987, Sony acquired CBS Records Group from CBS. It was renamed "Sony Music Entertainment" in 1991. * 1989 — Acquired Columbia Pictures Entertainment from the Coca-Cola Company for US$3.4 billion. It was subsequently renamed "Sony Pictures Entertainment" in 1991. * 1993 — Acquired Psygnosis Limited a computer games company based in Liverpool, UK. Psygnosis director Ian Hetherington was made Managing Director of Sony Computer Entertainment Europe. * 1995 — Sony/ATV Music Publishing LLC, a 50:50 joint venture of Sony Corporation of America and Michael Jackson. * 1997 — ST Liquid Crystal Display Corporation (STLCD), a 50:50 joint venture of Sony Corporation and Toyota Industries Corporation. * 2001 — Sony Ericsson, a 50:50 joint venture of Sony Corporation and Ericsson AB, was established in October. * 2002 — Aiwa Corporation in October. * 2004 — S-LCD Corporation, a joint venture of Sony Corporation and Samsung Electronics Co. Ltd (Samsung Electronics: 50% plus 1 share, Sony: 50% minus 1 share) was established in April. * 2004 — On 20 July 2004, the EU approved a 50-50 merger between Sony Music Entertainment and BMG. The new company was named Sony BMG Music Entertainment and, as of 2005, holds a 21.5% share in the global music market, behind worldwide leader Universal Music Group, which has a 25.5% share. * 2005 — On 8 April 2005, The MGM Company (Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer and United Artists) was acquired by a Sony-led consortium (Providence Equity Partners 29%, Texas Pacific Group 21%, Sony 20%, Comcast 20%, DLJ Merchant Banking Partners 7% and Quadrangle Group 3%) finalized the deal to purchase the film studio for about $4.8 billion, including $2bn in debts from Armenian-American Kirk Kerkorian. * 2006 — Sony NEC Optiarc Inc, a 55:45 (Sony 55%, NEC 45%) joint venture of Sony Corporation and NEC Corporation, was established in April. * 2006 — Obtained an option to acquire half of Michael Jackson's 50% stake in Sony/ATV Music Publishing. * 2006 — Acquired digital Single Lens Reflex (Digital SLR) cameras section from Konica Minolta including digital camera support and servicing. * 2006 — Acquired Grouper Networks (now Crackle, Inc.), a Sausalito-based startup company that created a user generated video sharing platform and P2P technology for $65M. * 2006 — Field Emission Technologies Inc., a carve-out of Sony's nano-Spindt FED technology. Established in December 2006 by Technology Carve-Out Investment LLP (62.2%) and Sony (37.8%). * 2007 — Qreatic Design Inc, a 50:50 joint venture of Sony Corporation and Qimonda AG. * 2007 — Moversa GmbH, a 50:50 joint venture of Sony Corporation and NXP Semiconductors. * 2008 — Acquired Gracenote, Inc. for $260M. * 2008 — Acquired Bertelsmann AG's 50% stake in Sony BMG Music Entertainment Ohh wow.. how can this be!??? now don't go and cut your wrist now that you have discovered that Sony did not.. invented everything.. or built everything from the ground... but that they also acquire companies in order to get stay competitive.
However, Microsoft isn't going down without a fight. The Xbox is the first hardware they've really been able to have success with. (Not software. Don't confuse it.) Now that 3rd party developers aren't doing exclusives, Microsoft will have to continue paying...which is something they can't afford right now. Sony has built up their studios throughout the years...as well as their relationships with developers like Insomniac, Sucker Punch, Kojima, and Nomura's Kingdom Hearts studio. Luckily, they bought Naughty Dog...arguably the most talented of the Big 3. (Naughty Dog, Insomniac, Sucker Punch) Also, Microsoft isn't acquiring companies. They are paying them off to get exclusives. They only have one or two studios left to make games for them...Rare being one of them. How promising does that sound to you? It doesn't look like the PS3 will be slowing down any time soon.
wow bladestar, you are the very definition of an xbot --- senseless and irrelevant. "and look what happened"... lol. Yeah... Sony went from 1st place and global console dominance with more than 140,000,000 console sold... to being on 3rd! are you trying to convince yourself that the 360 has already won its chosen battle? when the ps3 is only 2 years old? here is an analogy for you... the 360 is like a car in fool's racing game that in order to see a victory, it needs to crash the gate and go ahead even with not enough fuel to complete a race. can you see what is happening now? in its 3 years of existence, it is already losing fuel. where are the games that you are boasting at the beginning? it's already twice as cheap than the ps3 and it cannot even outsell it by a margin good enough to be called wide and significant. what happens when sony do make a price cut by even 50$ coupled with an avalanche of exclusive titles? i know for sure that you will excuse with xbox720. "By the way... in an attempt to educate you and reduce by 0.0001 your level of ignorance (though I'm sure is not possible); here is a list of companies Sony has acquire over sometime in order to get marketshare... " don't try to be funny there. these acquisitions is by far very legitimate and done in a win-win scenario and doesn't involve European Commission ... http://afp.google.com/artic... nor ... http://www.pcworld.com/arti... nor this ... http://www.vnunet.com/vnune... edit::: and don't try to act smart down there coz you look like more of an idi0t. and btw again, your posts are senseless and unintelligent. edit2:: and btw, don't use Google, its a competitor to microsoft so you are not helping your gods!
This is actually a pretty well written and logically thought out article.
MS only bad mouths and gloats about outselling Sony, because they were market leaders twice in a row. And now that MS is ahead why in the world wouldnt they be happy and want to shout about their huge accomplishment.
And Sony did the same crap....which is why they're in this same situation. Microsoift keeps this up and they're going to end up just like arrogant Sony.
Sony was arrogant towards it's consumers before the PS3 launched. So far, M$ is only arrogant towards sony. I don't really care how much they yell at each other, and nobody really should. It's once they start saying things like, "people would buy an empty box if we sold it to them," that the consumer should be upset. Unless of course the company is lying in its arrogance, which could potentially be slander, at which point the consumer has a better right to be upset.
I agree i dont really care what in the world they do to each other(Sony and MS) just provide for the consumers and make them happy and thats all i care about. BOTH companies have let down consumers in many ways, they are both guilty and if we would stop giving them so much props, maybe they will wake up and start doing something.
Not defending Sony's statements, but if we're talking arrogance towards the consumer how about releasing a known faulty product to the market place, then lying about it until the problem got too big to cover up? MS Exec: "What are we going to do? One in 3 of these things is rolling off the line faulty." Other MS Exec: "Screw em! They're only a third. We've got a 90 day warranty in place. Besides, two thirds won't have any problem and will completely happy! Even if we extended the warranty, consumer studies show people often will just buy a new piece of electronics rather than fuss about with a warranty repair. Those internet dorks will be all over the warranty because they'll be informed - but how many average consumers even know they're covered by any kind of warranty? Not many! We can't lose and we'll beat Sony to market by at least a year! Then we'll stack our since inception sales against theirs so it always looks like we're in the lead even if their console actually starts selling faster then ours." MS Exec: "I'm sorry I wasn't paying attention. I had dollar signs in my eyes. What were you saying again?"
...I await the reports on this article but it's very well written...better than the crap that's usually posted here.
Sony IS their competition. Nobody looks to Nintendo because they're untouchable regardless of the shovelware found on most of their platforms. This is news?!?
Frig the console war, buy both and have fun like a real gamer!! Really, what do you gain by being a fanboy, honestly? Why do you care who wins?
I own a PS3, 360, (actually two Xbox 360s) and a wii. I am not a fanboy and call it as I see it. I personally prefer the 360 for a) better games, b) better controller, c) better online play. If my favorite game ended up being a PS3 game, I'd admit it. But as it stands, I prefer the 360. I catch a lot of hell on this site because the PS3 fanboys are extremely touchy about the PS3, more so than the 360 fanboys. It just seems that this site is riddled with PS3 fanboys lurking. The 360 fanboys aren't near as bad. You are right that a true gamer has room for both platforms in their home. It doesn't have to be one or the other. I own a few exclusives for my PS3 but if a game is available on both platforms I'll buy it on 360 every time. Certainly glad I did with Fallout 3 because of DLC and the fact that I would much rather hold the 360 controller for 250+ hours than the PS3 controller. The PS3 controller actually hurts my hands after 2-3 hours. I have literally played Fallout 3 for 2-3 days in a row for 12-14 hours a day on the 360 with no cramping hands. Also, I got stung pretty bad by The Darkness for PS3. I loved the game and hit the Lower East Side bug between the 4th and 5th (last) levels. The 360 apparently had the same problem and a patch was released. I went as far as to call the game maker 2kgames about the issue and they basically said there wasn't enough interest in the PS3 game so they weren't going to patch it. Nice. My rule of thumb is to buy the 360 version of the game if it is available on both but had bought the PS3 as a bluray player, while it was the cheapest player on the market, and wanted to try a game for it. What a mistake buying The Darkness. But anyway, I had the console for over a year after that before I used it for anything other than a bluray player. Now I buy exclusives for the PS3 and play them, but it really isn't as fun as the 360. I don't think MS has anything to worry about with Sony right now.
Well said then, fair enough. I have no problem with console preferences, I just hate the rabid fanboys we are always trashing each other...and I'll tell ya, it can get brutal sometimes. It seems they want to compare everything now-a-days, I mean come on! Last week, they were comparing the Cryengine 3 tech demo reel!!! It is not even a full game, or demo, or gameplay trailer, it is a friggin' (<----love that word)tech demo!
I don't usually comment but it good to see people with some damn sense. I also prefer the 360 but I'll eventually pick up a PS3 because there are some games on there that look pretty damn good.....screw the Wii though.
And Sony is more concerned with Microsoft... Who cares!
Oh god flame bait article.
Microsoft?? Hahahaha. They aren't even relevant in Japan or Europe. Sony is relevant everywhere- a real global console manufacturer capable of selling upwards of 100mil plus consoles. Microsoft can't ever do that and publishers know this. That's why all the 360's games are jumping ship. Sony has a foot in every region. No wonder they're scared
People are realizing that there is nothing to play on the Wii, the 360's lineup isn't all that spectacular, and the PS3 is spewing exclusives left and right. Unless you're really excited to play Halo...again...there's no reason to buy a 360 over a PS3.
Well Sony and MS have released 2 exclusives so far this year. And i can you please provide a link or source to all these exclusives popping up everywhere for the PS3 with CONFIRMED dates. Thanks in advance...becasue i know you don't have any lists.
