This generation has been filled with many dumb remarks by CEO's and developers. We at GamesOnSmash have compiled a list of ten of the dumbest things that have been said by gaming executives and developers this generation.
Turn 10 guy: "Forza 3 is the definitive racing game this generation." and "Forza 3 is difficult to replicate." Yeah right, watch how GT5 obliterate Forza 3 when it comes to reviews in March 2010.
Ahhh crazy Ken how I miss your crazy witty comments.
There's a user with that name on this site. He's hilarious. There's like only one quote that had to do with the ps3... well actually i think 2.
or more recently microsoft 'we have sold 9 million 360s in europe' then sony come out with official numbers over 10 million,microsofts response..' i am confident that we are 1 million units ahead of sony in europe' kens classic 'people will have to get an extra job to purchase a ps3' ridculous starting price thats why sonys in 3rd place at the moment
Without reading i'm going to say that Pachter can top them all: "sony will release a blu-ray-less ps3 to drop the price" -pachter Now for those too dim to understand how stupid his comment was: ps3 games are on bluray disks....meaning that pachter's imaginary console would not play games or movies....what would it do again??? For an 'analyst' that guy is pretty f-ing stupid
It baffles me how idiots get jobs as CEO's. Some of these comments were made out of complete ignorance, if you don't know what you're talking about pass the question over to someone who does and don't pull shigadey out of the air and make something up on the spot. No knows everything that's why there are different positions in every business. And some of this BS are bold faced lies Ninja Gaiden 2 for example. A good game, but what kind of impact did it really have on other developers. NONE. Maybe some unknown 3rd party developer has envy for it, but no major developer.
Peter Moore's, Dan Greenawalt's, and Aaron Greenberg's mouth SHUT.
comment that Sony should scrap the PS3 and start over.
regardless of the consoles quality they have lost over a billion dollars on it, so why not? if they had just put a quad core cpu in there they would have the best games, it would have been easy to program for and there would be alot more ps3 games and of much higher quality, i hope for ps3's sake they don't go with the cell next gen
I may need a little clarification. By "why not," are you saying that Sony should've scrapped the PS3 and started over even after spending the money of launch and investing how ever much resources into game development, marketing, launch, etc? And let's be honest, neither you nor I know what Sony is really making or losing on the console. And Sony isn't some fly by night company. They can sustain losses to, as they plan to, recoup that money and then some in the long term ergo the 10 year life cycle. I'm no gear head so you can throw out all the specs and techs and leave me in the dust. All I know is that I have Killzone 2, Uncharted 2, Metal Gear Solid 4, Little Big Planet, and soon God of War III and GT5 without the quad amplifier photon phaser or whatever you said. Now perhaps you can point to some games that didn't come out so well on the PS3, but that won't refute my point that the aforementioned games are (or will be) amazing to me and many others. Gabe Newell's comment was not only the dumbest of this gen, but fairly surprising coming from someone that isn't an N4G 360 fanboy. I've never responded to or read any of your posts before DC so I'm assuming your a gamer and not a fanboy. If after considering all I've said you still believe Sony should've srapped the PS3 and started over you're either a fanboy, delusional, or ignorant of how the market works.
Turn 10: "FM3 is the only racing sim shipping this generation" XD
Actually...he had a point. As far as the 360 was concerned, HDMI wasn't necessary. It is a welcome addition however but wasnt necessary for the purpose of the 360. Component and VGA are both capable of delivering the same resolution as HDMI. HDMI is a nice convenience with the single cable connection. As far as PS3 is concerned then yes...it IS necessary. Bluray right there makes it required with all the HDCP the format is supposed to have. It was an asinine statement but true to a certain degree.
The HD-DVD one takes the cake. Funny enough most of those quotes have to do with the xbox 360.
That remark is indeed funny, but Microsoft can and has done much better. "We have the best games and all the franchises." Remember that one? But Ken Kutaragi totally deserves the #1 spot. The guy was completely in love with himself by the time the PS3 was released.
I don't think that's a bad thing.... why work for a company and hate it's products? At least he's in love with a system with a disc format that toppled the HD-DVD one. All things PR related there are some casual dumb remarks made through the industry, but being completely wrong about something that your product was built is like..... the biggest fail of all time. He got the number one spot, but his system didn't make the majority of that list... which is the lesser of two evils?
How much longer until Kotick is fired? Seriously, you could make a top 10 dumbest quotes list using just him. :( Also 5, 7, 8 and 9 = MEGA FACEPALM
I wonder what was going through there minds when they made those comments. Probably nothing...
“If you can’t make it good, at least make it look good.” – Bill Gates Right...
why do i think he's talking about the 360 ?
Fücking Kotick! Grrr...! That guy is going to single-handedly ruin the industry.
I dont see anything wrong with Ken or his remarks. I just think he was the scapegoat for everything people were saying was wrong with Sony and PS3. Yet everything he put in place is working a treat. Sometimes Genius is mistaken for insanity.
Where's the PS3 120fps quote? How about rumble is last gen? I'm trying to think of some others.... the list does compromise of mostly MS lol
Gamesonsmash is a sony fanboy site so I wouldn't expect those silly quotes you brought up.
http://uk.gamespot.com/news... people spun what ken said so heres what he DID say. Now you can take that piece of ammo out of your bag......i cant say sh*t about the 'last gen' rumble though. That was a silly statement to make to be honest edit lol been waiting for somebody to show me this quote since the gen started....i guess this IS waiting huh
Wood, dont tell them the actual quote. Xbox lovers only care about the Misquote, y'know the "Every game" will be [email protected] misquote. Remember when Ken said that? No? Me neither.
These people never said anything like this, only Ken of course, and Kotic.../s
I don't know about you guys but the dumbest remark IMO Turn 10: "FM3 is the only racing sim shipping this generation"
"If you can find a PS3 anywhere in North America that's been on shelves for more than five minutes, I'll give you 1,200 bucks for it." Jack Tretton, days after the PS3 launch (they were BOUNTIFUL) http://www.penny-arcade.com...
of this list has been maded by people who used to work with (or inside) Microsoft. So, the thing are two. The author of this article is a Sony fanboy or guys at microsoft are completely nuts.
MS sure shout a lot. Im sure its a cultural thing. Its like a 3 scale thing. Asia seem to be the most humble whereas Americans seem to be the most bashful with the europeans in the middle. Of course there are anomalies to this as itakagi and ted price have proved but in general this is how it is. Just look at the advertisements culture in each region. Only in the last decade and a half were european advertisers allowed to mention/downplay other brands by law whereas its always been a part of american advertising/advertising within america. I cant comment on asian advertising but from a european aspect speaking/downplaying your opponent/competition wreaks of weakness and insecurity. Fill the gaps between peoples ears with great info about yourselves NOT bad info about 'the competition'
Check this out: Sony says the DSi is for kids, the PSP is for winners http://www.engadget.com/200... http://nintendo.joystiq.com... Don't kid yourself into thinking sony is an angel, they are just as bad as anyone else. gamesonsmash is a fanboy site, they should be banned
trus me, i know sony aren't angels first hand but for every 2 links you find i can find 8 or 9 ms ones....thats my point. Trust me, none of these companies care about our lives. Sony will never pay my bills if i fall on hard times so im not overly rapped up in all of this but from a pr perspective sony are far more respectable than ms have been this gen and thats even after winning 2 gens straight....you almost cant blame them for feeling themselves yet is MS who scream the loudest with air to back it
Ultimate fanboys of their respective companies! Who would have guessed?
