Here is an article listing the reasons to keep hope on the PS3.
Sadly the article doesn't mention Gran Turismo :(
GT5 is going to be sweet.
seeing as how thats all you've got.
We have sh!t loads of good games coming this year and in 2008, That includes MGS4 which is not going to be on 180, GT5 will kick the ass off forza 2. Drakes fortune looks amazing and hopefully it will get out for this year. The ps3 also has 2 days to vegas, And i dont think that game can be done on 180 with dvd9. MAYBE WITH 10 DISKS. We also have 8 days, Killzone 2, Heavenly Sword, Lair, Motorstorm 2(2008), And once this year ends, More games will be headed are way, You really think developers will stay with the xbox 180 for another 5 years lol
Most critics seem to agree that Forza is better than GT. I don't think you can even be a true racing fan and think otherwise. Quality over quantity. Plus, have you seen those steaming hot liveries?!?!?! See images.
I don't really think anyone should be citing Killzone as a good exclusive or a reason to own a PS3 since the only thing we've seen so far is a CG trailer from 2 years ago.
Why shouldn't developers stay with the 180 for 5 more years if 180 owners are still buying their games? Hmmm....
Developer: It doesn't matter how well our games sell on the 360 and Wii if we can't make our games look as well as they do on the PS3. What's the point? Surely we're not in this for the money, but only for the satisfaction of making the best looking and biggest games that can only be achieved with the power of Cell and Blu-Ray. I mean, sure, they cost much more to develop and they might not exactly sell well enough to make a profit, but we're artist.
Just out of curiosity, why can't 2 Days To Vegas fit on a DVD9? And why are multiple disc suddenly such a big deal even though it has only happened with one game (Blue Dragon) and some of the best games last generation were on multiple disc (Final Fantasy)?
havent given out on the Ps3 is just a hard time in american right now
-Focked up economy
-Focked up Gas Prices
should I continue...
So you're saying it's America's fault the PS3 is failing right now? They must be too poor and stupid to realize the greatness that is the PS3.
So what excuse do you have for the Japan? I'd love to hear it. Maybe you can make some gross generalization that will offend people.
You can't blame people for not wanting/being able to purchase a PS3. That's ALL Sony's fault right there. Sony made bad decisions and now all they can do is try to overcome them. No one forced them to make a Mercedes when all the market could bear was a Honda.
LOL! that was funny. But dude, you are missing his point, he is not blaming the country, but rather the situation in the country and simply saying that alot of people who want it, simply cant afford it, especially because of the situation in the States. And why are you so defensive about it anyways? you Republican or something?
stop playing after GT3...
I'm not quite sure...
well it mentions "wait" and "eventually" and "soon" a lot
so i think its just a joke
06. Can anyone say “Gran Turismo 5’?
01. Can anyone say “Gran Turismo 5’?
10. You simply have to give it some more time.
09. You cannot deny the power of the cell processor. I predict we will start seeing a great difference between PS3 performance and Xbox 360 performance as the next generation gets into full swing.
How much time are we talking? Why sit around and wait when there are better options? That's just stupid.
I'm denying the power of the cell completely because I have'nt seen it produce any games on the Ps3 that are better than 360 games, only worse. At the moment it has nothing on the 360's gpu.
wtf, that article's ridiculous.
i dont see how this was approved. i might as well make a list and post in on my blog and then submit here. im so sick of people submitting blog entries of the "10 things sony needs to do to turn around" blahblahblah. stop making opinion pieces that are so cliche.
but thats just my opinion. dont take my bubbles for it lol. but the guy makes a good point, wait til fall and the ps3 will be worth it.
with a topic like this.....it sure will draw a lot of heat...
but I pick Heavenly Sword to be the next big thing. I think Firmware updates should be on the list because the last few Have seemed to make alot of people happy.
I think those two titles only matter if the general public cares enough about them. Sure, Sony will advertise them, but will that really make people want to spend $600 to play them? Even considering a price drop, the highest Sony would possibly go is $100 and then even $500 is still too much. When you include the price of games, accessories such as an extra controller, and tax, the price of admission into Sony's next generation isn't even funny to the average person. This sentiment will continue beyond Christmas '07.
Games are not enough for Sony right now. I don't get this whole, the price doesn't matter Sony just needs game idea people seem to have.
about saving the PS3? Maybe if they would actually make games for it and not make it twice the price of other systems it wouldn't have these problems. It really isn't rocket science. I never saw any save the Dreamcast or 3DO or NEO GEO rants. This is becoming rediculous.
........These kind of articles do more damage to the PS3 than good..
Yeah "keep those dreams alive fellas" (ROFLMAO) The 10 year console "always waiting" You guys can do it, just hold hands and sing after me "keep those dreams alive, keep those dreams alive"
under 10,000 in japan. i dont think there is a dream over there. it would be hilarious if the 360 saw a spike in sales and for a week overtook the ps3 in sales. maybe that wack as* game sonata might do it lol. both the 360 and ps3 are on life support over there.
Waste of time !! Grow up and be more serious.
You have a User name like Xsux360" and you're telling others to grow up?.
I'm enjoying Gears of war, Lost Planet, CrackDown, Table Tennis, Guitar Hero II, PGR3, Shadow Run, Viva Pinata, Forza2, XBLA games, MSN, X-box Live, Halo3 Beta.......Downloading Movies.
and I've been enjoying GRAW 2 for quite sometime now, especially RAINBOW 6......................the PS3 version hasnt come out yet? that's pathetic...
heck... I'm living a dream with my 360.
PS3 is just a nightmare.... everybody knows it....look at the dam price tag
You dont have
Little Big Planet
Devil May Cry
I think I speak for everyone when I beg you to please give us more game lists...we all need them...please, once again point out what games you prefer to play and what you are playing...and how happy you are playing them...we all care a lot...seriously...
The funny thing is you don't have any of those games either.
lol.. i'm laughing at myself aswell..
atleast i tried defending my PS3.
That's hilarious :)
Everything else is just fluff for the true connoisseur. =]
True, there would be the games even if it's not very many. :-)
DIE DIE DIE.
I heard that when in Japan when they bundled the 360 with Blue Dragon they sold all 10,000. Very quickly it was quite a long time ago though.
Anyways my point is that it doesn't matter what console, its all about the right games and the taste varies from what part of the world you come from mostly anyways.
I however think the Japanese are kinda picky no offense intended to anyone. Here in the US we play just about anything.
Its not that they're picky with games, its that they're culturally different and won't buy into games that they don't identify with.
PS3 is far from being dead even though some of us might hope so. I personally think PS3 is just having extremely annoying launch hangover.
Hope is always good, but articles like these kinda try to say GAME OVER even though the game is still going on. Of course the waiting is damn boring, but hey "this is living", not always so glorious.
Anyhow, all this sh!t is Sony's own fault, totally.
I know PS3 is just in a slump. It will pick up. And I favor my 360 just a little more. 360 got a great interface. And its paddle i like better. But I like PS3 too I expect alot from Sony this being their 3rd console. They have yet to fail.
Buying a PS3 also saved me money as far as High Def movies go I only got one movie but will buy more when they get cheaper. I see alot of good stuff coming for both of these consoles.
dont forget u can watch BLU-RAY Movies "while u wait"....or even PS1 games for that matter.
PS3..A FREAKIN JOKE!!
Jees well come on what a joke this list is:
10. You simply have to give it some more time. --> RIGHT Even more time to delay and wait... Sony said that next gen true HD gaming would start with the PS3. We have it for a half year already and it's not looking good with games like MGS4 and FFXIII delayed to 2008
09. You cannot deny the power of the cell processor. I predict we will start seeing a great difference between PS3 performance and Xbox 360 performance as the next generation gets into full swing. --> Already known that the GPU is better in the 360, the CPU will have about the same output. Marginally better output from Cell in THEORY.
08. Backward compatibility with the PS2 collection (one of the best console collections in history I might add). --> With most games having problems, jaggies and the upscaling s*cks, more blurry then the original!
07. The price will eventually drop. I can’t say when, but it’s unavoidable. --> Well hell yeah Captain obvious! Every's console price will eventually drop. The 360 will drop its price in fall, so what are you going to do about that Sony?
06. Can anyone say “Gran Turismo 5’? --> Like GT HD also blows? In a sim its about the car, the movement and closest to reality. It's not only about graphics
05. The PS3 is embracing the future of Bluetooth technology. --> Which could be the next Betamax, UMD or Minidisc. Sony is known for making formats that are not the nr. 1 standard. But right a bit, the PS3 is a cheap bluray player
04. PlayStation Home --> Sony always overpromisses and underdelivers. They hyped the PS3 too much, probably they hype Home too much.
03. If Blu-Ray wins the next generation movie battle, the PS3 makes
for a cheap Blu-Ray player --> And if it looses... Plus, Sony lasers in drives are known to burn out soonish. Remember the PS2 laser problems that Sony denied?
02. Unchartered: Drake’s Fortune. This could be the big hit they are waiting for. --> Anything can be a big hit they hope for. Question is: we haven't seen anything yet and the public refuses to pay 600 dollar/euro for nothing.
01. Can anyone say “Gran Turismo 5’? --> Can anyone say: double post? Not every gamer wants a racing game. In fact there are many people that don't like sim racers. I know a lot more that want games like Gears of War
Obviously Sony fanboy food this article is, written by a Sony droid
but you sound like someone who wants to play ps3 but can't afford it. lol - get a life
Why dont you ask your mommy for money marty boy, She should have some for the other night, i gave her $600, and she(you know what happened next) Hopefully you can buy that ps3 you wanted
ps. Can i buy your mum???
Thats the worst article I saw aproved here. Why we the consummer have to keep the dream alive when the damn console arrived to stores just 8 months ago??. I remembered all the jokes and bad press the 360 had just for its lack of good games. If I remembered well I had to wait a year to play a truly "showcase" game on the 360. Worse was that I waited long, playing just Oblibion and Call of Duty 2. MS also screwed us with its BC problems. What make me laugh is that now the same fanatics who always said: "wait for gears" are now saying thet the wait for good PS3 software its just too long. LOL!
What is more absurd is that the games are coming. The PS3 owner doesnt have to wait one full year to have more than ONE game worth their console. You know guys...I have a 360 (the second one), I believe Gears is the best next gen piece of software available, I loved my original Xbox, also my Gamecube and PS2. One thing I hate is how these fanatics who take the bubbles out of other people because of their different opinions, consider themselves gamers. I hate how 360 fanatics twisted the news in their convenience point.
You know what fanatics?? We 360 owners are still waiting for a superb game, a AAA game after Gears. All we have is a halo 3 faith. For us 360 owners, every crap of game in our console is a killer app and will sold millions just for a stupid NAME. You fanatics dont give hope to new IPs and thats why our beloved video game industry is losing innovation. Just look at the damn Wii. A masked Gamecube who promised innovation but doesnt have any good game beyond Zelda ( a game I bougth on Cube) but its selling because people want something different. You fanatics are pathetic!!!!!!!! The PS3 isnt dead!!! We dont need to dream, we need to play. The best games are coming for our PS2, wich I could play them on my fully compatible PS3. Best of all I could look at them different thanks to the firmware upscaling.
You could have different opinions fanatics, but you cant deny when a game is promissing as Drake, awesome as Resistance, amazing as Gears and so on i will continue. Only blind fanatism keep games from be enjoyed and played. Only blind fanatism make the PS3 look like a failure ( wich it doubtly is). So FANATICS, If you dont like it GO F...
this article is plain silly. in a couple of months everything will be fine with the ps3. there will be more games and a price cut soon.
When the 360 came out it didnt sell really well then ccompletly die in sales. go to vgcharts website. numbers are in for the us and japan and they didnt break 30k. in the us they sold like 16k. in japan where theyve sold millions is around 8600. the gameboy advanced is outsellingn the ps3 in the us. 360 increased in sales. With the wii around and 360 to give hardcore gamers the exact same thing but cheaper, the ps3 is in trouble. And now all those people who want a 360 this year can get it 100$ cheaper when they drop the price. Sony's numbers have been less and less each week and lair comes out in a month or something. they could keep falling! In the us they could drop below 10k. and in japan theyre drowning and lol fending off the 360 haha. the wii is gay and theyll sell 200 million of them just like their ds. they cheap imagin a wii for 200 or 150 bucks. theyll kill
Kinda funny... no matter what console you go to bat for
mart we will surely see which system will do what come e3, lets see your gpu and cpu be any where near close to ps3 in e3, im sure your post will look like pig corn sh1t
Love the ps3 best console on earth
And you don't have to keep on replacing over and over and OVER AGAIN!(X360)
Yes, giving it more times probably sums it all up. But Sony has got to remember that time is the most valuable thing to anyone/everyone and nobody wants their time to wasted. So to Sony, a really good advice on time management has got to be your No.1 priority and everything else will flow thru.
Well i think my hope gave out a while ago so now all i have is faith, faith doesn't need as much to get by.
