PCN takes a step back to look at the PS3's advantages and disadvantages, but most importantly, what it will need to do to overcome the competition.
why cant people just chill. let the industry and consumers decide. These are getting annoying.... wheres my bubbles? =*(
i gave you bubbles
Its probably too late for PS3 all it is, is half assed innovtions tookin from the Wii and 360 and people can get the best of both worlds for cheaper just buying the two diffent consoles rather than the PS3. Thats why its getting kicked around, its possible that the consumer trend and popular opinion has changed out of PS's favor. #1 said and i quote: let the industry and consumers decide. ^^^ these type of news post are based on your statement/what you said.
This seems to say otherwise. http://i11.tinypic.com/6gu2...
Just way to expensive for mass marcket the only problem i have with the ps3 is the browser takes for ever to load a web page and no custom soundtracks fix these two faults and be happy
and take Toshiba head on.....dropping the PS3 to $400 and giving it a fighting chance. Obviously a $6oo dollar price point is too high to the average consumer. This decision would also benefit Sony as productions costs would be dramaticly reduced. The decision to include Bluray has crippled Sony and dethroned them.
He must be retarded if he thinks sony will take out the blu ray....It neeeds it and time has proven so with each next gen system...unless you saying we dont need biiger storage mediums...let me save this on floppy..im sorry dont have a floppy disc drive..plz get with the times doc
It's ok, blood has a valid point in terms of pricing, but everyone has their own opinions. buidl a Ps3 for immediate market impact like the Wii? cut corners and such, or build a PS3 that will last 10 years (I think at least 7..PS2 lasted 7 yrs..so i think 10 is doable). No need for name calling, but PS3 is already out, games are already on blu Ray, money is alreayd coming in from the movie biz.. it's useless to talk about it now. it won't change.
I bought a Playstation 3 just for Mortal Kombat 2. I have three PS2.
Taking blu-ray out of the PS3 is a moronic idea: it's shortsighted, and games would stop working. Sony has to focus in cutting costs, it's that simple. The rest comes with it.
just made me NOT want a ps3 even more. Killzone was a FLOP and killzone 2's been nothing but BS. Metal Gear Solid will eventually come to the 360, I can wait. If not its no big deal, cuz im sorry but im NOT paying $600 to play 1 game. Firmware updates? OOOO big fu*kin deal! As for online service, im sorry but the ps3 network sucks ass compared to xbox live. The downloadable games mentioned sucked ass. Calling all cars and blast factor? FLOPS! Now onto blu-ray. WE DON'T NEED IT FOR GAMES. As anyone with eyes can see from what the 360 has going on. Sony's forcing people to adopt a new format. And I said before a LOT of people including me aren't gona chuck our dvd collections for blu-ray. Thats my opinion. Flame on sonyboys, I know your already cherry red with rage after reading this.
I don't know, this Warhawk Beta sure is more fun than I have had on any online game with X360 and that includes Gears of War, Battlefield 2, and many others. I sure do enjoy playing all of my PS and PS2 games with higher rez and don't have to "chuck my dvd collection" because that's right they are upscaled but I forgot these "firmware" updates are not a big deal. Sorry you are upset you can't afford a system that offers everything in one complete package without extra charges to get them. @mp BTW, while you are "waiting" and/or "not caring" about MGS4, I will be enjoying it on my shiny $600 glorified Blu Ray player
Naughty Dog, Kojima Productions, Rockstar have all stated that a bigger medium is, in fact, useful for games. More storage and space equals more freedom for developers. There aren't many downsides to having more space available to you all at once. 50GB of compressed data is still larger than 9GB of compressed data.Whether it's a good game will be up to the developers. More space isn't needed to make better games: Bioshock, Mass Effect, but it will still give developers room to be as ambitious as they want to be.
Amplifier - "Sorry you are upset you can't afford a system that offers everything in one complete package without extra charges to get them." That's the problem with PS3 owners, trying to make people feel bad/stupid for not being able or willing to pay $600 for a video game system.
"That's the problem with PS3 owners, trying to make people feel bad/stupid for not being able or willing to pay $600 for a video game system." You want to know the problem with the PS3 bashers, they WANT something they can't have so they complain and throw a fit like a 2 year old(I have one so I know) because they can't and won't get it but will bring down everyone that enjoys that very thing.
future proofing as the reason for the inclusion of Bluray is pretty much invalid. You can't futureproof technology. They are already working on new higher resoulution TVs that are over 16 times the resolution of 1080p, and resolutions will go even beyond that. Digital distribution will the new medium. I agree that Bluray nice, and I do like the technology. What I don't like is that it is being forced on the consumer just bc they like Sonys video game platform. Don't you think it is rather convenient that Sonys PS3 is $400 dollars cheaper than a stand alone Bluray unit(upon release). It is a shady business practice to force people that enjoy playing Playstation games to adopt Sonys new format. And no I'm not antisony I am just free enterprise. Do you guys understand that if Bluray fails it will be the end of the PS3? If Walmart does indeed release HD DVD players for $300 dollars this christmas, which is highly possible....it will signal the end of the PS3 solely because Sony included Bluray in the PS3......so what do you think is more important to Sony Bluray or PS3?
ANAL-lysis.if gamers want it,it will sell.and right now it's selling at a high price.what happens if it drops in price?
Why do all sony boys that sh*t. "oh they must be too poor to afford it, thats why they don't like it." -WRONG. My $600 was better spent on my 360 and Wii. How long did you spend saving the money to pony up for your paystation? And no extra charges? They made such a goddamn fuss about "true 1080" and that only ps3 had yet they don't give you the necessary cables?! LOL
"They made such a goddamn fuss about "true 1080" and that only ps3 had yet they don't give you the necessary cables?! LOL" Well... They made such a goddamn fuss about "xbox live" and that only Xbox 360 had yet they don't give you Wi-Fi and make you pay $5 a month?! LOL
sturmfuhrer14, If I am SO wrong or off target then why are you commenting on a PS3 article, obivously you wouldn't waste time because you didn't "waste" money on the PS3, yet you are complaining about someting you want that you refuse to get and/or don't have money to get it, let's just face facts.
BIG %&£$ OFF TO THIS ARTICLE. Getting old really fast now.
just wait E3 in july, and we will see, who needs help. =))
I really don't care about the console war anymore. I like all three consoles and want the 360, the Wii and PS3 to Co-exist and all do good. That's my two cents.
