In this week's EGM Live Podcast, Dan Hsu, editor of EGM, revealed that he had caught wind of the fact that Sony was going to call their copy and pasted achievement system "entitlements".
Entitlements? That doesn't even make sense.
Then i think the next thing sony will do is make First party games like Halo=Malo,Gears of war=tears of war,Mass effect=Deep impact ,list goes on and on...Some on PHONY Guyz make something of your own...U already tried to copy microsoft on live service ...and now the Achievements ...Sore loosers...Now they will claim they had this planned in 1857 or maybe 200 years before that
"I know, I know, yep yeah, you too Okay we get it, yep yeah you too I know, I know, yep yeah, you too Okay everybody meet mister me too I know, I know, yep yeah, you too Okay we get it, yep yeah you too I know, I know, yep yeah, you too Okay everybody meet mister me too"
Cant these guys think up anything on their own. Like c'mon. I dont even work for sony and I have a totally original idea that they should use for PS3. Here it is: ** Every PS3 video game purchase, you recieve 5 Sony Dollars to spend on the online shop for various games for various maps, weapons, accessories, etc.**. How hard is that to do, not only will you get some above average sales in video games, ppl will also use your online shop to buy things, cause I dont think they want to pay for everything on it. And Its original, Xbox 360 uses Microsoft points, but they dont give you free points when you buy games. Sony you could make some money and have a totaly original idea here. THINK ABOUT IT
1- Sony would have to give something for free to their customers. Sony hate their customers. 2- Unless Microsoft do it first, Sony don't want to do it. ;)
How true is that. I guess Sony may copy Nintendos free gaming download service. Oh wait, E-Emulation, ??, Oh yea, theyve already done that. Just like the Wii, as you can download nes, snes, n64 titles. Now you can download PS1 titles and then save them directly to your HDD, or even play them on your PSP. Hmmm, Well i guess theres nuthing left for Sony to make original now. THEY ARE FUKED
Basically, if you can't come up with one single original idea, YOUR FUC*D!!!!!! Instead of Fony being leaders in innovation and imagination, they're gonna look like complete PUNKS!!!!! entitlements!?!?!?!?! sounds like something pupils at harvard or eton get for playing POLO or something!!!!! !!!!!!SONY R DIC*HEADZ!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! !!!
lol why the hate,oh i get it scared sony is gonna put u to shame again?hahah
Scared? For a so called 'free' online gaming service like the PS2 alike? That would be the same if one would be standing before the traffic lights in a Ferrari and a East European Lada would stand besides ya to have a street race. One would laugh their butt of. As we all do with the same claims Sony make as with PS2 never seen online services. Yep, they were never seen again after the announcement!
This is just pathetic..hey Mircosoft copy Sony's...uh......MS cant copy any of sonys [email protected] because they stole everything from their competitors..like MS's "achivements", and theyre "Xbox live" kindof thing... didnt they 'borrow' the Wii mote and rumble tech. and what about the "microtransactions" (the updates and add-ons in the Xbox live Marketplace)?? Sony needs to stop copying and start actully THINKIN' of new ideas
They want to know what M$ in gonna do next!!! If there system was so great then why would they wanna copy M$ "Crappy system" ??? I don't get it.......MAYBE SONY LIKE'S THE 360 AND WANT SOME OF THOSE NEXT GEN FEATURES FOR THERE SYSTEM???? WHO KNOWS...
One word: Copycats Overpromising and underdelivering = SONY
This brings me back to the massive lawsuit that microsoft and nintendo are planning for sony come this november
Surely MS have patented the achievement aspect, and can sue Sony's ass?? I like Sony, but I hate the fact that they are stealing ideas from every other console, and then saying that the other companies are copying them! Liars!!
This really pi**ed me off, god how lame can they get?
the ps3 will still be twice as powerful than that xbox 1.5.
...I dare u
super bill...is that the standard issued comment your told to say at Sony Fan Club meetings? did that award you an "Entitlement"?!
sony see, sony do
If the system were to launch without these features, would every single one of you not then be saying "Why doesn't PS3 do this?" As far as I know, Achievements aren't for anything more than bragging rights, and given the fact that I don't buy 20 games a year, probably of little worth to me. But if it's a good idea that is seemingly becoming a standard as far as gaming goes, I'm not hurt by its existence. Same thing with downloading. I'd LOVE to be able to download PS1 games. I'm at a loss as to why everyone thinks that Sony should leave out a popular feature just out of courtesy, if it's something that supposedly makes things better.
kevmac has no trouble discussing things like a normal person, why cant everyone else?
good points Kevmac83 and well said. Nin., Sony, and M$ has all done their share in making a new idea standard on the other console. It is just right now we are seeing M$ being the role model. i will use M$ in this example...every gamer should be happy M$ came into the fold...Why? because they made the Hard Drive and online gaming a standard for CONSOLES. they sealed the idea of a single online idenity.
Exactly. I never bought a hard drive for my ps2, because I didn't feel I needed one, and I only used the hard drive on my Xbox for game saves. But now, I think it's an absolute necessity, because these boxes are for more than just playing games; at least to me. That, and I'm running out of space on my computer (I never thought I'd fill up 320 gigs). One other thing I remember reading about 360 before it launched (and I have no idea whether this made the final features list or not) was that you profile would carry with it your game settings and preferences, so that if you were to, say, go from one FPS to another, it would automatically set the turning speed and inverted axis controls and what-not for you. I think that is such an amazingly simple, but great idea, and hope that's integrated as well; especially with every system having a HDD.
2 words for both of you. Fu*k off. Why cant people just discuss things normally? Ive got an xbox360 and will be getting a ps3 and Wii, and its so sad to see these little geeks coming in here and saying (quote super bill) "the ps3 will be twice as powerful than the xbox 1.5" Its pathetic, do you realy have no life at all so you have to come on here and argue for a console!? a CONSOLE!? Seriously, you should be out getting a girlfriend, or some friends for that matter; not the "friends" you have a chess club, proper friends that go out in the SUN, you know the big round yellow thing that makes you hot and tanned, not sitting in your bedroom argueing about a console. Thats my view on things. I aint a fanboy for anyone, but it is clear to see that Sony are not coming up with anything original, they are simply just copying off competitiors. Its kinda sad to see that from Sony, thats something i would expect from a little thing like Gizmondo or summit.
why dont you fu*k off,i say what i want.
i'll tell you why i wont fu*k off, cos i aint the immature lil geek with no friends. When youve grown some pubes and got some friends, thats when you can talk to me again. Bye
I dont think the problem is that Sony is doing something like this, in fact its a big compliment to MS (not that Sony would admit that).. the problem I have with it is the name itself... it doesnt make sense! And is going to be seen as a massive rip off in the community. Its the problem with launching a year later... yes the Xbox 1 lauched a year later than the PS2 but it had things like HDD and built in Ethernet port.. this set it aside, made it seem more valuable. The PS3 has Blue Ray... but at a massive cost. The downfall of the PS3 WILL be the cost.... no matter how much of a sony fanboy you are you have to be worried about the throught of people walking into Best Buy and seeing a PS3 on display playing Warhawk and a 360 with Gears of War right next to it.... for 200 bucks less
so now all these sony fan boys are gunna think that this is their own idea. wtf, this title doesnt even make sense. there is one more thing that sony has copied from the xbox 360. get your own ideas, unless you like the 360 so much. bunch of panzies
Now whenever a fanboy b*tches on the "wiiwii" one can turn around & say that we're all "entitled" to an opinion lol I know Sony have boxed themselves in with the comments they've made towards the other two companies but it's going to have to fight it's corner a lot harder to be taken seriously in the next-gen wars. I see a lot of people remember how they got burnt with the PS2 hardware (online services, fizzling power cables & self-combusting DVD drives) but it was the software which won the war last time around. With so much hardware being integral for a game's success, does anyone think that a "killer app" can truly save a console in this new cycle?
features for the ps3, we can all tell sony have hit a brick wall, when it comes to innovation. Next, will be the entire collapse of the company!
Why is Microsoft copying Sony's idea, they need to stop already. Oh yea a 60 year company is really going to collapse by the way, what are you 15?
Actually Sony is copying Microosfts idea, Microosft came out with the Achievements idea in 2005 and Sony copied it and are now calling it Intitlements.
in light of this news from sony wheres the gang to defend this ,arhira, jin kazamz,xbug terminator an zypher, sony needs them to come to the rescue.this is the main reason why nintendo waited to the last possible minute to tell people about its controler.sony fans would say that sony had this first or their gonna just make it BETTER!!LOSERS!!!
The 360 controller is like a mix between a ps2 controller and an Xbox controller S. And it's a really awesome controller. Other than that, the only thing MS copied off of Sony is having fanboys. Should have copied something better.....wait a minute, there IS nothing better from Sony to copy.
sony, you have nothing to do but to copy ideas from microsoft. 360 is way better. cant wait for the lineup the 360 has. killz the ps3
sony and MS copies other companies just as much as the other. even nintendo has copied. internet downloading a original idea of nintendo is as much bs as the format wars. if i recall correct that Phantom X console was the first implement that, hell that is tha drivin tech behide that console. i just think yall XBOX/MS fanboys are mad that yall wont be able to emulate PS games on yalls console no more LOL yo i gots a question, who needs 2 HDMI ports, more than 4 usb ports or a card reader when you can hook up a hub, and 2 extra wired ethernet ports when you have wifi?
