3xG says: "You won’t believe how many emails and comments we get from people trying to pick flaws in the PlayStation 3. A lot of these people seem to have founded their knowledge on 2006 facts, so it’s time we hammered home some truths."
when you hear developers like square quantic dreams xbox cant do heavy rain and like cliffy b said a few years ago about 360 then look at final fantasy 13 town taken out same with huge world explores and no shops holding gaming back to reach its potienal and 360 has not have 1 game to top uncharted 1 let alone uncharted 2 god of war 3 still 360 cannot manages these games because idiots multiplatform developers got to make both versions the same the fact 360 technlogy is outdated until they thenwhen they can get a game that can topped those games i metioned above then they can speak up end statement
Being a fanboy is fail.
Most of the 360 zealots on N4G don't break these "myths" anymore. 1. They know no game on 360 is F'ing with Uncharted 2 2. They know they have very few exclusives 3. They know the quality on PS3 is respectable atleast I think as a PS3 zealot myself I've done a good job at telling the truth and drilling it into their thick skulls.
The very fact is that this gen the most beautifull games and most advanced games are all PS3 exclusives. And this is not the first time, developers have defended the Playstation3. Capcom, 2kGames, EA, Activision, Treyarch, Konami, even Bungie have commented on that the Playstation IS without any doubt the most powerfull console today. Thats why facts favor the PS3 and thats why bots fight a losing battle. When the facts are basically biased towards the PS3, anyone who sits on the opposite camp will naturally find himself crying a lot. Its simple. The laws of physics dictate that when you drop an apple, it will fall down. We call it gravity. Anyone who is betting on the apple to float, is gonna lose money and reputation.
just like third party devs wont come out and develop solely for the ps3.if they do,they do it at their own peril. 'gonna lose money and reputation'
You know what's worse than fanboys, though? ANTI - Fanboys. You know why? Because they keep whining. Atleast fanboys are standing up for something and arguing good defensive points. What do anti- fanboys do? They whine and whine and whine and call people faggots. Its good to be something in the middle, not a complete fanboy (you argue but not at the extend of saying utter bs, bashing or having opinions without supporting them) yet not a complete anti fanboy (who keeps whining and does not stand up for anything).
I don't know if I should take your comment seriously, since that's propably the most common "undeniable truth" comment in N4G. But I can tell you really haven't played X0 games, or maybe you just don't want to play them? Oh, and by the way, some dots (.) in your comment would be nice. For example Mass Effect 2, play that, and say that comment again, it basically does everything. And for the rest, towns not included in FF isn't x0's "fault", it's Squares "fault". Article was well written, but I'm guessing they get tons of more e-mail now XD But why do they care if someone is so blind to see the thruth befind theyr "fan-goggles", one article won't make them believe rational words, it's just flaming.
however the open world was taken from FF13 becuase of the 2 discs, if you have to change the disc to enter a portion of the map its going to draw you away from the experience so; they decided it would be better to remove it so although there fault the DVD format was the catalyst
They just didn't have time / resources to do XIII bigger game it was ment. Just look all the details and scope of everything in it, it's massive amount of work already, and they were working with brand new hardware, and made brand new engine for it. They simple chose more bling, less content with theyr usage of time. Also ME2 (2dvd's) is open world, and LO is open world (4 dvd's), and you don't have to change discs when you change region. It's all about programming, and pacing the game. You change discs at certain points, when story progresses. I get a lot disagrees saying this, but; Lost Odyssey (4dvd's) is classis "FF-game", it has all the things which fans recognice FF-game. It's simple example that FF is possible on DVD in massive scale. And it was best "FF" I have played. Square just took too big slice to bite, maybe theyr next instalment on new hardware is better..
They also missed the fact that 360 has more exclusives - this is a lie as most 360 exclusives are on pc also which most people seem to forget is a valid platform. Except for that its a cracking list.
cant do real 1080p since the console does have standred def dvds and the console should never be consider high def and remeber greenburg metioned no hdmi cables needed and playing 360 games on standred tv was good and rush out and its faulty cant do real 3d gaming wipeout tekken 5 gt5 pro ridge racer 7 gt5 the real driveing simulator 1080p final fantasy 13 ps3 version 1080p in game cut scene forza 3 has 720p no weather effect 400 cars no 3d head tracking swapping dvd in these stone age and gt5 has 100 plus cars plus night day weather 1080p 60 fps no need swapping over at all plus all on 1 blu ray disk
PS3 only does 5% of its games in 1080p too. Only PC can do 1080p in all games. GT5 isnt 1920 *1080, its 1280*1080 so thats not full HD. having bluray doesnt = 1080p. IF that was the case then all PS3 games would be 1080p, PC wouldnt be doing 1080p if DVD was a limitation. @below full version is still 1280*1080p
Prologue ran at 1280x1080, the full version runs in full 1080p http://www.1up.com/boards/p...
What does it achieve for you personaly?
I love how people are talking about the resolution of GT5 and the game isn't even released yet.
@ his @ below thing, as the game's not been released and polyphony said it will have full 1080p how could you know that the full version doesn't run at that?
@failsoles: True bro, but don't tell the console fanboys that! They'll feel buthurt! I tried telling them before that not all PS3 games run in 1080p and only the PC can run games in that resolution but then they all got buthurt! Then they listed games like Sudoku (WTF) that play in 1080p. I don't want them to feel like that and waste time on something they know theyre gonna lose, ya know? Oh yeah, and blue ray has nothing to do with resolution. @Sitris: Why do you console fanboys troll pc articles? What does it achieve for you personally?
I'm a big fan of Zero Punctuation, Yahtzee is a funny guy. But I am not a big fan of zero punctuation in written work. Seriously, I want you to meet some friends of mine. They are "," and "." and sometimes their cousins "!" and "?" or one of their long distant friends ":" and ";" or those wacky sex addicted neighbours "(" and ")". Please, your comments are impossible to read. If you want anyone to hear what you have to say, they're not going to read it if its just a block of text with no clear indication of rhythmic patterns or where a sentence ends and begins. This stuff should be ingrained from Primary/Elementary school. Ah screw it I'm just going to block you because I honestly don't think anything I say will change your habits on anything. You also need to stop being such a console bi*ch and start playing games. Who cares if the 360 can't do full HD on most its games (same can be said for PS3), or that blu ray can hold more. There is a multitude of quality titles on both PS3 and 360 with excellent gameplay, which is all that should matter before you even consider anything else. Also please don't bring frames per second into the argument. The only time a frame rate should come into question is if theres slow motion effects used during gameplay (such as bullet time, or replays). Human eye can only see 24 frames a second, so those extra 36 frames mean crap all at normal speed.
That 1st paragraph is epic lol.
I bet they'll get more emails now!
Especially since that article is nothing more than a huge whining rant. Perhaps the author should have taken his own advice and just let it go.
Now xbox fanbos will shut up(hopefully)!!
Why because these guys say so... I doubt it. The facts have been known for a long time, it has not changed anything. There are great games on the 360, but that does not stop sony fans slagging it off all day. fanboys are fanboys, they are all just as bad. Having said that, I think there is a little fanboy in all of us even if you own both systems.
I hate n4g and you cultist SDF types. You people ruin gaming with your stupidity.
can you ban this guy?
And this is news, how? Fanboys/trolls will always be ignorant, some list isn't going to change their minds.
Have a bubble, that's exactly what I told above. And agreed, this isn't news, but sadly this is how N4G rolls..
We seem to have at least one article a week with "fanboy" in the title, and it always turns into a pointless discussion (if you can call it that) about whether being a blind zealot is a good thing or not. The best thing you can do is just report it and not fuel the fire.
or stopped giving attention to fanboys, maybe they'd subdue and retreat. stuff like this just brings them all out to bicker at eachother.
Any danger of getting some news posted on N4G today?
News gets posted just doesn't get enough heat to make the 50 degrees for the front page sad really
and then there is this...which tbh is smt different than I expected...slow news day -_- on the other hand, N4G seems to have become a fanboy / perv playground! YAY.../s
Well you did click on the boob article. So did I, I am ashamed :(
You have to realize there is a difference between fanboys and idiots. Fanboys believe that their console of choice is best and support it above all else. Idiots post stupid commits just to get attention. So being a fanboy is not a bad thing it just shows loyalty to your brand of choice.
Being a fanboy is DEFINATLY a bad thing. There is nothing good about having blind, illogical, faith based loyalty to a device - its almost as stupid as religon.
IMO, a "fanboy" is an Idiot who supports their console above all else with stupid comments and reason. Someone who supports their console above the other choices, but does so with reason and respect is just a "fan". You have Sony "fans" and Sony "fanboys", xbox "fans" and xbox "fanboys.
just happens that on this site most of them are "FANBOYS"
Nah but anyone who thinks 360 is equal to the ps3 is misinformed retarted idk I get confused why ps3 even has one person hating on it you have free online no lag bluray amazing first party titles Internet browser mag god I love that game there is so much variety to pick.Graphics get better and better it's scary how good that killzone 3 teaser I sound like a fanboy but I'm just a happy customer.
You say stuff like that because you are generally ignorant about electronics and eager to swallow hyperbole. MS doesn't WANT a browser. It's not a technological advantage that a 360 can't handle. It's a piece of software that MS doesn't want people using on the 360. There IS lag on PSN. Several of Sony's first party and exclusive titles are not considered amazing by anyone but Sony fans. The variety angle is way overstated who it often turns out have even played these masterpieces they like to boost so much. MAG is a good game but so what? Most people like BC2 more. The recent Killzone 3 teaser was CGI that was merely using melee animations from KZ3. You sound like a fanboy because you are one.
Great article. I especially like the Ford/Ferrari sales analogy.
360 doesn't have any of there games in 1080p they just upscales them to make it look like 1080p but its actually in 576p, yea your right 360 has a little bigger fan base in the US only last time I check PS3 is catching up with 360 and world wise sales of PS3/360 is that Sony's winning. now back to the games yea 360 games look like their in 720p or 1080p to bad there really not in those resolutions remember guys MS is still using DVDs most of their games are in 576p only, even knowing 360 hardware should be better then PS3 but its not if you look at most of there exclusives are looking good on a HDTV but if you do a comparison with PS3 in real 720p games and 360 with 567p games you'll be able to see the differences. Be where of web sites that uses falsify PS3/360 comparison instead of using PS3 and 360 hardware they may use PS3/PC hardware to make 360 look better like what the Lens of Truth did.
Everything you said here was a stupid lie. Both PS3 and 360 have some sub HD games and lots of true HD games and neither console has many games at all in 1080P. Most of those are pretty simple games. If you knew anything at all about games and graphics you'd know that. Bluray vs. DVD has NOTHING whatsoever to do with the native resolution of rendering in the frame buffer. Storage devices do not render things. If you think that Bluray means that all games on PS3 are 1080P or even true HD resolutions then you are completely and hilariously wrong.
First off the Playstation 3 offers more. It simply has more value for the price it's sold at. Yes one can argue that they may get more value out of the Wii or the XBOX 360 because they enjoy the games more on those platforms or they prefer the controller or the online or whatever. However by just going by hardware the Playstation 3 has more to offer. It also cost more to make which is why Sony as of yet has made money off of it. So us the consumer are getting a great deal. HOWEVER, why can't people just enjoy the games and not be so pessimistic about it all? Every generation had an inferior and a superior console. In fact the Playstation 2 was not the most advanced last generation yet it was by and far the leader where it mattered most, the games. There was rarely much emphasis on it lacking 4 controller outputs or a built in hard drive and other things. So why is it so important this generation? When I see a game like Mario Galaxy 2 I see a fun and well made game. Same with Heavy Rain, Mass Effect 2 and Forza 3. In fact right now I'm really digging Red Dead Redemption and that isn't even a console exclusive. So enough of this XBOX Live is superior or Blu-ray is superior or Nintendo's 1st party games are superior. Enjoy the games and stop focusing on the platform so much. That will put an end to the fanboys. So there is no need to make an article defending the Playstaion 3 because then you need to make an article about all the Sony fanboys attacking the XBOX 360. After that you will need to write another article about the Wii getting attacked and how people rag on it for inferior technology or it's online or casual games. Look at the comments on a daily basis on N4G or any other forum. It's filled with kids who portray nothing but ignorance. I don't blame them, I blame the media and articles and the PR from the companies selling the game systems because they are the ones who are teaching us to act this way.
@ LevelHead Dude, your comment is Way to level headed, I mean how can you propose so much common sense and expect us to understand all that, lol. good post, bubble to you man.
2010 - xbox has no games...... this is called "KARMA"
actually the 360 does have games smh
he meant good games
No, it is called lying, wishful thinking, and being a ridiculous ignorant fanboy. Sorry. @Nicaragua " he meant good games" Then he's SILL so wrong that it makes him look really stupid.
of the most childish comment sections I seen in over 5 minutes. why do i keep coming here?
I'm wondering the same thing myself.
This article mention some facts. I hope Xbox Fanboys don't get hurted.
