25 Reasons Why "Ditching" Sony Is A Bad Idea

HBMag writes:

"Our readers know that our website was created as a platform to release information and exclusive articles about PlayStation Home. There has always been somewhat of a passion for hating PlayStation Home and everything it stands for among the industry. As I scrolled through a list of articles created by other websites, I came across one from GameDaily.com titled "Top 25 Reasons to Ditch Sony" and while we aren't replying to it as a call out to say "you're wrong", I did thought it would be fun to make an opposing article, somewhat similar to what PlayStationLifeStyle.net created. They did decide to take a hit at Home, so it wouldn't be entirely off topic. After the jump, we basically describe why that list is wrong on so many levels..." (PS2, PS3, PSP)

Anyone took that ridiculous article seriously. Sony keeps giving quality I ain't going anywhere.

It sounded like someone was a bit ticked off that Sony's Slim is getting all of the positive press.
Megaton  +   2080d ago
Yeah I mean it was written by Chris Buffa, the man can't help himself. PS3 hate runs through his veins. I seriously wouldn't be surprised to find out that he's the person behind the frequently banned 360 superfanboy accounts here like "pp".

It's getting personal, i am afraid. No need to get all over it!

Sony is still confident our strategic plan to get PlayStation 3 back is to win like it's predecessors!

Retaliation B!tches!
I luv how these Positive articles about the PS3 quickly counters & Bashes the anti-Sony articles! Lol! Good stuff guys!

I didn't read the 25 reasons not get a PS3, simply because I, myself couldn't even think of one reason?!?!

Like I was saying M$ is, a sorry, sad excuse of a company to be in the games industry.
Whatever sweet spot you think a console is in, only tells craptastic developers, "I would like another helping of B.S. Please."

Proven Retard
If you would have just gave GameDaily a chance, you'd see that it's going to have an article for Microsoft as well. They already did one for ditching Nintendo, next up was Sony, and last will be Microsoft. All you had to do was f*cking wait, but instead you had to react like a little pu55y. GameDaily is not a Microsoft fanboy website. They're going to have a Top 25 reasons to ditch the Xbox 360 too! God you people aren't gamers, you're whiney little b*tches.

Maybe pre-ordering a PS3 slim was a bad idea on my part. I don't want become like you guys. You're rediculous. You can't even argue fairly. You just say the same thing over and over... RRoD. Read the responses to my comment... see how many of them talk about the RRoD. That' it. That's all PS3 owners have. The PlayStation 3 intrigues me, but it has a piss-poor fanbase. They don't support it by supporting the actual console, they support it by bashing the Xbox.

Except for N4PS3G... now that's a respectable PS3 fanboy. He's got more weapons than one!

It was GameDaily...
Of course the only people that took it seriously are the idiots and Xbox fanturds that have becoming the scourge of the net in every way possible. Heck, we all know that the GameDaily staff is a bunch of turds so no, those of us with a real sense of gaming never take them seriously.

@ Sanzee

Give me a break man. No matter how many times they skin that article for each of the three companies, it does not make it right. What it does do however is prove that GameDaily is full of douchebaggery.

Your logic doesn't make sense. So it should be ok to write complete BS of a console so long as you write it about all three?

Is it ok to be a racist ass as long as you are that way against all races?

The point is the Gamesdaily article was BS and should be considered news. Useless BS to attract hits and gamers flock to it like flies on dung!

I saw that 25 reasons to ditch Sony article in the failed department but to my shock I just came to N4G right now and saw it in the front page again with 250 comments.

Maybe it's time for me to start ditching N4G because they're starting to allow spam in order to fire up fanboys or something.

That 25 reasons article is just ridiculous. If you look at the article rating on the actual website it came from, it has rating of 1 star out of 5 and everyone on there is just calling out the author for his blatant fanboy crap.

The PS3 slim is $299, free online, WIFI, blu ray player, just about all the third party games on the market and a the largest collection of first party games, Sony has more first party studios than Microsoft, so of course they're starting to pump out more first party exclusives.

The PS3 slim doesn't play PS2 games, but neither does the XBOX 360. And I've seen some articles be as bold as to take a shot at the PS3 slim because it doesn't have linux or whatever, that's getting pretty desperate man.

I've seen so many anti PS3 slim articles and there's no more reason at all. They have no argument anymore. Are the PS3 haters beaten or what? It seems some websites have stopped pulling punches now. Maybe a sign they're in trouble.

PS3 haters just can't call themselves a gamer. They can chose 360 as their preferred console that's fine but to bring down Sony with amount of high-quality games they keep pumping out is ridiculous.
-MD-  +   2080d ago
You're a 360 hater so according to your own opinion you aren't a gamer.
-MD-  +   2080d ago
Oh look disagrees how nice. Don't bother explaining yourselves just keep hitting the button.

I don't expect much from you people but please... surprise me once n' awhile.
TheDeadMetalhead  +   2080d ago
Well since you're going to beg...
You're a PS3 hater calling rucky a 360 hater. And before you say that you own both consoles, owning them both does not make you unbiased.

Also, I looked at rucky's comment history out of curiosity. Aside from negative comments about the 360's failure rate (which we all can agree is simply too high) and 360 fanboys, I saw nothing in his comment history that implies that he hates the 360.

And that is why I clicked on disagree. :3
Marojado  +   2080d ago
Chris Buffa loves to stir the old pot, people shouldn't take his articles so seriously.
rucky  +   2080d ago
I hate the 360 more as a consumer than a gamer. There are some 360 exclusive games I find interesting like Lost Odyssey and GeOW. You can call me a fanboy yeah but that only happened cause of the way the PS3 is negatively treated by the media.

rucky, don't bother explaining yourself to murderdolls. He won't listen.

I hate the 360 as a consumer but I never hated on the games. I was also interested in a few games and was planning on buying one last Christmas but the RROD hasn't been fixed permanently. I only made fun of the 360 because 360 faithfuls think it's fun to bash the PS3 and Sony.

Microsoft, instead of talking trash about their competition should have been fixing the 360 to the fullest.

@ Ulti
Bashing can be fun when you're in one of those moods I guess, but two wrongs don't make a right :P
Apocalypse Shadow  +   2080d ago
why ditch
reliability,free online,free 3D community,free wifi,bluray,upgradeable hdd without void of warranty and sony's risk taking from in house developers?

does dvd,no hard drive as standard,being charged for online play,charged for over priced accessories,unreliability,bare ly any in house developers for all those billions that microsoft has....

deserve gamer's support?

does using dvd,no HD,no HDD,no video playback,no real online play,first party games that lack core..or should i say nintendo abandoning their core for casual and rehashes of gamecube games for new control methods...deserve gamers support?

abandon sony and you abandon change,uniqueness and tech forward risk taking.

i won't be one of those individuals.

TheDeadMetalhead  +   2080d ago
This is the second article I've read today that was responding to that crap "25 reasons to ditch Sony" article. I might as well just make a "25 reasons to ditch your 360" article on my site and submit it...

(Not that I would ever do something like that...well I probably wouldn't >.>)

we live in a world of LIES
DelbertGrady  +   2080d ago
Indeed. This piece and that similar garbage from PlaystationLifestyle certainly wasn't written by any real journalists.

It's just fanboy drivel that you insecure droids cook up to defend your precious PS3 from the truth.

Gamedaily's list was a joke. They made one about Nintendo before and will make one about MS as well. Get over it.

Why blame only the droids? Bots do it too, don't be one-sided, they're just as bad as the other.

No they don't. Show me some of the "25 reasons MS is teh best" articles. You won't find any.

I guess you've missed the "Too little Too late" articles huh?

So GameDaily is ditching Nintendo and Sony? Sorry all I feel that GameDaily is trying its best to save Xbox360.
San Frandisco  +   2080d ago
i would normally just say i hope everyone brings down this bastard.. but he probably wrote that "25 reasons to ditch sony" pathedic article to grab some attention.. and how is the best way to do that?.. Talk false bullsh!t against sony. :)

its so retarted that the peeps on his own site are talkin him down to dirt level lol..
danthaman15  +   2080d ago
Whoever has a blind propaganda of hatred toward ANY (emphasis on ANY) other console is retarded in my opinion.
N4GAddict  +   2080d ago
Just buy all three. They are pretty cheap nowadays anyway.
SegaNerds  +   2080d ago
I didn't read the other article
... but I like this one. He isn't being one sided, he is just calling out someone's BS. HOME is boring? I agree to an extent, but you aren't forced to to use it at all. That is like saying Xbox 360's avatars are boring.

No Netflix? I can use that on my PC and with Play ON on my PS3. I also like Trophies better than achievements.

I love firmware updates,who doesn't! Though mandatory installs on games does make me a sad panda.
StylizedPlayer  +   2080d ago
I can't believe someone actually took that article seriously let alone write a whole other on just to criticize it.
JonnyBigBoss  +   2080d ago
Every site should do a rebuttal for that stupid article. I love these.
Knightrid808  +   2080d ago
I agree. Its hilarious to see how each of the original article's points were wrong. There's nothing more savoring than seeing a writer showing off to the internet on how ignorant they are.
saimcheeda  +   2080d ago

a pretty good article!
Jonoc33  +   2080d ago
I read GameDailys article and I was in WTF mode. Reading this, it basically trumped it completely. Ignorant 360 fanboys..
PlayStation X  +   2080d ago
agree with all of that.

Quikchicken_Fly  +   2080d ago
the truth is being loyal is great,great things come to those who wait like the huge price cut of the ps3 from 599 to 299

so a 360=299
and ps3=299
299+299=598 great deal like buying a ps3 at release date don't you agree
Superduper09  +   2080d ago
I have PS2, PSP and PS3 so I won't ditch Sony anytime soon XP
Sanzee  +   2080d ago
PS3 fans - what have you become?
The funniest part about this whole article is this guy's ignorance. Game Daily was doing an article for all the consoles. Top 25 Reasons to ditch Nintendo. Top 25 Reasons to ditch Sony. And no doubt the Top 25 Reasons to ditch Microsoft will be next. Except PS3 fanboys don't think that far ahead, instead they just act on impulse due to their constant need to defend their console. If you retards would have just waited a few more days, you'd see that everything is fine. You need to chill out. For real.

"and while we aren't replying to it as a call out to say "you're wrong".....we basically describe why that list is wrong on so many levels..."

Umm...didn't you just contradict yourself?

"I did thought it would be fun to make an opposing article,"

"I did thought"? Somebody needs an editor.

Update: Nevermind...it would appear the article corrected it already.
