has never been correct with any of his rumors. I like his style but he can't be taken seriously.

N4PS3G2970d ago

Forget who he is for a minute and answer this.. would you take seriously a guy that goes running around everywhere with a Wrestling belt on his shoulders?

A HOMEMADE WWF CHAMPIONSHIP BELT after Ravishing Ric Rude won the Intercontinential Championship Title from The Ultimate Warrior. It's a classic... I love how HipHopGamer "gets it" and plus a bonus he pisses everyone off who doesn't. Love it.

SevWolf2970d ago (Edited 2970d ago )

@ AAA: gd for open zone is over there ->
I'm just happy that I didnt read "Review: Transformers(MUST BUY)", he makes it sound like every game is the Christ second

Godmars2902970d ago

That's the trouble: everyone, regardless of how they look or even act, deserves to be listened to once.

HHG's on his nth "chance" and hasn't delivered once. Has only been hanging on because of the HH routine, but otherwise is no journalist.

sak5002970d ago

None. they are both wrong 100% in any predications they make related to IT industry.

gamesR4fun2970d ago (Edited 2970d ago )

ya right didnt he give godfather2 the same score what a waste of money Selling bad games like hes paid 2 Sorry hhg but this aint the first time either. U jus another judas using anything u can for a hook.

Carl14122970d ago


Well done HHG

gaffyh2970d ago

That genesis thing is almost definitely illegal.

egm_hiphopgamer2970d ago

so my show a week or two before E3'09 when i said that twitter is coming to xbox360 i guess i was wrong with that rumor too right look man seriously i'm not always right just like any body else in this industry but don't knock me because i've gotten tons of things right need an example. I told you guys that god of war 3 was coming march 2010 no one believed me now look, i told people about the home reward system now look, i told people about assassins creed 2 and the setting and new action that would come with that game, now look so before you talk get your facts straight because there's a plenty i've been right about

MisterNiwa2970d ago

Imagine he asks the people if he can take a picture with him, instead of them asking him for a picture!

Darkspade2970d ago

I've said it before, This guys has hopes but just sucks at what he's does, All his Info is from Internet, I mean the guy wears a WWE belt, and gave Transformer 2 Game a 8/10 are you kidding me.. I think everyone that buys this game on Hiphopgamer's review should get a Full refund from him, Halo recon Beta is going to blow everything out of the water this year, PS3 Slim may help Sony but what are they taking out to make it cheaper, Don't you think people are tired of seeing new consoles come out so fast.. put it this way you just bought a brand New Truck Fresh off the dealers Floor, 2 Months Later they come out with the same Truck with better crap in it for only $100 bucks more then you play, Nintendo's the only company thats making the system upgradable if you wish...

Just like that WWE Belt hiphopgamer is a fake

Double Toasted2969d ago

follow that Seph guy around, when I haven't seen any of his predictions come to life, but I've seen a few of HHG's.

I did not murder him2969d ago (Edited 2969d ago )

There is a difference between being told something, given hints by insider sources, reading web speculation-making grounded guesses from all of the above -vs- predicting blank slate happenings of the future.

One's a blank slate prediction and the other is based on web speculation and MS rumblings.

Example 1:
360 will be bundled with Natal

Example 2:
360 will outsell Wii month to month after Natal launches.

Hell I make better Predictions.

* I Said MS will have full body motion
* I Said ME2 will Stay exclusive
* I said The name of Konami's new game was metal Gear Rising
* I said Forza 3 would have GT5-p graphics
* I said the new MGS game will come to the 360
* I said PS3 fanboys will boast PS3's line-up only to not have a lackluster one much later in the year
* I said that MS was going to try and steal E3 knowing it was the reinvigorated E3 where more eyeballs will be tuned in than normal
* I said MS has software for 2009 when PS3 fanboys said 360 has nothing
* I said Japanese developers xenophobic attitudes will vanish soon
* I said Splinter Cell would be a graphical monster.
* I said Killzone 2 graphics would be forgot about because of prettier games.
* I said XBL would start making huge leaps in evolution because gamers pay.
* I Said MS would have a camera "bar" with more than one camera and other capabilities.
* I said many of the games PS3 fans waved around on their lists the first 4 or 5 months of this year would be pushed back.



nhars2969d ago

You also said that MS is buying valve, rage a ps3 exclusive, dead island being at E3, wolverine being goty 2009, resistance 2 surpassing halo 3 and GTA5 being ps3 exclusive (no agent doesnt count you know nothing about it and nither do we.)

And thats just pulling from the headlines, if you went in depth theres no telling how much random bullshit you´ve spewed. Theres just no end to it. Grats on some comming true, hope you´re enjoying goty wolverine still.

Honky Kong2969d ago

i cant tell if iam suppoz to laugh or what?

Beast_Master2969d ago

I don't normally comment on HHG, but I just rented Transformers and I couldn't get through the one campaign. I handed the controller off to an my eleven year old nephew and he couldn't stand the game either. The game is terrible, only 3 maps, extremly repetitive and the controls where god aweful. Sorry HHG I lost respect in your game review ability's there.

MEsoJD2969d ago

I ask

Have you ever benefited the game industry???

Oh also great Transformers review. hmm... Ill trust your review over ign and those other sites. HAHA

Unlike user Sev which came through like the Last Guardian Trailer what the FCUK have you done???

You just have annoying headlines on N4g or obvious/weak speculation.

I would respect your work if it had any significance.

The problem HHG is your integrity.

Double Toasted2969d ago

Have you benifited the gaming industry? you haven't, now why don't you go find a very tall building and do the world a favor.

Megatron082969d ago

"so my show a week or two before E3'09 when i said that twitter is coming to xbox360"

The only one you ever got right and you bring this up every 5 secs

"I told you guys that god of war 3 was coming march 2010 no one believed me now look"

Look at what there is no offical release date. However I'll give you that most likely the release date. A release date thats been predicted by 10's of 1000's of people all over the web. A Retarded 5 year old thats never played a video could of made that prediction. Seeing how the god games are always released in march.

"i told people about the home reward system now look"

Months after it was announced yeah real easy to get something right then.

"i told people about assassins creed 2 and the setting and new action that would come with that game"

This was 1st revealed when micheal patcher let it slip on the "bonus round" you just repeated what he said on your show.

There's an idea why dont the 2 of you do a show together and see who can make the most predictions that are wrong.

cherrypie2969d ago

You like his "style"?

You mean grossly ignorant, loud, arrogant and incomprehensible?

He's a douche of the highest order.

BadboyCivic2969d ago

So many haters,wow!

If you hate his show so much and know better,why dont you start you own show or even try.

The Killer2969d ago

wow there, u r really getting owned in here.

look dude, u might have good predictions or news but 80-90% of ur topics r ball crap!!

so get serious if u want people to get u serious!!

A price cut can give sony the win this holiday season.. the problem for most people is not the size, its the price.

yoghurt2970d ago

But effectively a PS3 slim is cheaper to produce, thus in turn allowing Sony room to cut the price. So whilst the slim is not necessarily what potential PS3 owners want - it it's the way to get the price down then it's important

HarukoHex2970d ago (Edited 2970d ago )

actually no its not, if smaller with the same specs was cheaper then why do laptops cost so much more then a desktop with a LCD screen.

when the ps2 slim cam out it was more expensive them the original ps2. so in the end your looking at making smaller chips, a smaller main board, smaller blueray player, smaller everything. so it might actually cost up to 200$ more. not in anyway even possibly less then a reg ps3.

please use some common sense here.

*edit below*
*slim blu-ray player buy its self sony made. 280$ used*
they may use less materials, but the problem is making smaller devices is much harder and requires more money. like i said laptops use way less materials, but it costs more to make them.

if they do put out a ps3 slim, i see it being 450-500, and then shortly after the slim release the reg ps3 have a 50-150 dollar price cut. while it will be a big gap, it would make sense.

*down below those saying it would be cheaper*
okay i see where your coming from, but look at it this way, the slim would be cheaper if sony had already droped the price from the 400$ marker, but if they put out a ps3 slim before they put the price drop it will still be more expensive. unless they drop that price first. the ps3 slim will be more expensive. and if it was cheaper to make, tell me again why the ps2 slim still cost more to make then a ps2 fat that was made only a month apart. smaller always = more expensive "at first" but like everything it will go down. >.> funny how you guys are not getting this.

GameOn2970d ago

The initial price could be higher to make up development costs but after that they should be cheaper because they use less materials.

I think they will bring it out at the current ps3 price point and drop the price of current models to get rid of stock. I think that should work out nicely for them.

Erocal2970d ago

Are you serious? Comparing the ps3 slim to a laptop doesn't make any sense. Laptops are more expensive because they are portable devices. There's a big demand for that so of course prices would be a little higher. The parts are designed to withstand physical shock (to some degree) so laptops are more expensive.

The PS3 Slim is NOT a portable gaming device. It will be cheaper to make because it will have less parts, and the less you have to make the cheaper it is to create. While it might have cost Sony money to research how to make a PS3 Slim, that should eventually pay for itself after it hits the market.

Please take your own advice.

Anon19742970d ago

Just look at the PS2 slim. It cost way less for Sony to produce as it had fewer parts, and in the time between the original PS2 and the slim PS2, technology advanced and parts became cheaper and smaller. There's no doubt that if the PS3 and the PS3 slim launched at the exact same time the PS3 slim would have been more expensive, but this isn't 2005-2006. Technology marches forward.

To quote HarukoHex, "please use some common sense here."

HarukoHex2970d ago (Edited 2970d ago )

yes tech has marched forward yet the ps3 is the same price for how long now. if sony lost upwards up 250$ per system when it first came out, how much do you think they will lose if they put out a slim line that is selling for less then the bigger ps3. they won't seeing as a the slim blu-ray player alone cost over 300$.....if you don't get this you really don't understand the concept of money. the ps3 has the 7 core system, image how much its going to cost to make that along with the main board 1-4 that size. the cost would go up more then 50% to make it. use your head and stop being a fanboy for a sec. then you will understand.

you know i still don't understand how you people think that a smaller ps3 will cost less then a reg ps3. just watch, it will do what the ps2 did. the slim ps3 will cost more upwards of 100-200 dollars. more. if you don't believe me, that's your own fault for lack of common sense.
