Seriously SCEE WTF? These aren't 'HUGE' announcements, one of them is pure BS

Yesterday SCEE claimed that they would have some 'HUGE' announcements on their blog today. And one of them is arguably 'OK' in terms of a Killzone 3 gameplay trailer but the other is complete childish BS not worthy of the hype. Essentially if USA beat England today in the world cup than the EU blog will have to put an American flag up on the blog. Now that's 'HUGE' news isn't it? Honestly, we don't care about two guys who don't care about football (one who calls England 'Great Britain') that seek to play silly games online. MaxConsole expected better from you SCEE and don't pull this sh*t again and abuse trust in the brand.

The USA dont stand a chance against the might of Roony and co, Going to predict a 3-0 win to England.

DelbertGrady2624d ago

I predict an overhyped english team failing like they usually do in the World Cup.

asdf122624d ago

I predict an unhyped USA team losing their first game, and failing to qualify past the group stages.

US Tactics At Sports:
1) Make country
2) Suck at internationally recognised sports
3)Invent own sports
4) Call one of the tournaments the World Series and only invite themselves and a country who probably don't stand a chance.
5) Be good at them

Boy30002624d ago

Lol got to agree that England ALWAYS dissapoints at the world cup lol.

bjornbear2624d ago (Edited 2624d ago )

i wouldn't speak...sweden didn't even make it =x, and england are ok tbh this year, but its unfair to say USA will loose

then again, this is a very big anti-climax, but since there were 2 announcements, this has to be the sh!tty one.

however, writer sounds like a butthurt fool

big deal, this isn't THAT bad

GrieverSoul2624d ago


Dont worry! If US cant do it, Portugal will crush the England´s team ambitions like they always do...


I kid, I kid... ;)

spectyre2624d ago (Edited 2624d ago )

Who sucks at internationally recognized sports?

Montrealien2624d ago (Edited 2624d ago )

I predict soccer sucks. Sorry world, NA don't care about watching someone jog 45 miles in 90 minutes with the occasional OOO! Ahhhhhh! ;P

Hocker > Soccer deal!

/on topic

With that said, it would be funny to watch the US beat England.


not enough golds, Canada > US



No need to be a US hating internet hipster, we all know Basketball and hockey totally blow soccer out of the water, I understand, little to fast for you Europeans, amirite? or amirite? rite?

tdrules2624d ago (Edited 2624d ago )

hehe because football doesn't eclipse every single sport that you won a medal for.


I couldn't be a hipster if I tried, I make pensioners look trendy.
I do not hate the US, I hate it's peoples arrogance.
and Basketball/Hockey are nowhere near the popularity of Football, maybe if you jumped out of your bubble you would realise that 300m people do not equal the whole world

Conloles2624d ago

England will draw Capello sucks

who is the arrogant one?

lol And trust me, I know soccer is more popular, if only by default since it is a sport that is as old as time. I know, you wanna stick to your old guns, teaching a old dog new tricks is a hard thing to do. And maybe, just maybe, I prefer hockey over soccer, I respect you prefer soccer, I just feel the need to remind you that not all of us do.

And if I am not mistaken, N4G taught me one thing. Like a videogame, just because it is more popular, it does not make is better. Amirite? or amirite? rite?

And I am Canadian, we barely have 30 million. You do know where Montreal is don't you? And I find nothing is funnier then a European thinking he his teaching us something by reminding a North American that the world is not NA. Your horse is so high I think your head is touching a cloud.

mcgrawgamer2624d ago

Hey friend I'm from the good ole US of A and I'm not arrogant at all. Please don't put the majority of the populous in the same category of the few in whom you speak of with arrogance.

DaTruth2624d ago (Edited 2624d ago )

I knew that was coming soon!

I predict a 0-0 tie in every game! I will be right 51% of the time! I don't know what you people see in this sport! But what do I know, I only watch Tennis!

Shang-Long2624d ago

Td.. You kinda fail....

There's the worlds and thatS international basketball which the USA is good at, and baseball worlds which is USA and japan. The USA are always top three in gold medals and all around metals in the olympics. Do you list.. Althrough funny isn't correct. But I'm a soccer player and fan so USA beating England not Likely but possible.

spectyre2624d ago

Fortunately for me, I don't feel the need to badmouth a whole country just to make myself feel superior.

Of course, this is the way of the world now. Other countries teach their citizens to hate the U.S. so you are so to distracted to feel the ass-raping you are receiving from your own govt. It works so well, they are even trying it over here now.

Boy30002624d ago

I think tdrules was kidding, I took it as a joke.

pody2624d ago (Edited 2624d ago )


Hey smartass.
Check out gold medalist of all-time and then you will see what country is the real deal. Guess what? It's not USA!

And btw, both Canada and Germany both beat USA in gold medallion race in Vancouver OL.

Danteh2623d ago

Spain is gonna win this World Cup, it's our moment with xavi, cesc, torres, pique.... fuck yea

Oh and USA has no chance against England :P

Persistantthug2623d ago

Neither Basketball nor Hockey were invented in the US. While the US didn't win the Gold, they far from sucked, obviously. Basketball though, its barely worth trying to put up an arguement against the US

The winter games is not typically where the US shines the brightest, but it certainly Shines pretty darn good winning the most medals in 2010.

And for the record US pwns every summer olympics...US didn't "invent" that either.

Foliage2623d ago (Edited 2623d ago )

That's cute spectyre, you American's go by total medals to make yourselves feel better... how are those bronze medals treating you (you know those medals that the losers get, like the silver ones)?

The rest of the world, including the Olympic committee themselves go by strictly gold medals. In which case you got creamed by Canada.

In fact, America used to go by gold alone also, until China creamed you guys a few years ago and you switched to total medals.

Sad really, you guys are incredibly poor losers.

nix2623d ago (Edited 2623d ago )

aww... look fanboys. how cute!

but seriously... one of the 'big' announcement was pretty lame!

Sm0k3y_Bac0n2623d ago


Apart from 1966.

wages of sin2623d ago

I predict angry Euro trash complaining on N4G.

spectyre2623d ago

I'm not saying "USA owns all sports"... I was simply pointing out that the US does do well in "internationally recognized sports". I just did a quick search and that was the first results. In fact, about the only winter olympic sport I care about is hockey. USA and Canada went tooth and nail on that one and Canada showed they were the better team.

BWS19822623d ago (Edited 2623d ago )

have it fine. I'm tired of coming to an international site and being hated on because of where I was born. It's sickening, and the salt in the wound is that the very same people accusing me, AUTOMATICALLY WITHOUT MEETING ME, of arrogance and ignorance have the audacity to say the spiteful and vicious things they do. Who's the truly arrogant and ignorant, now? Perhaps you should judge each person on their actions (like I'm doing to you) and not what land mass they were born on. And YES, tdrules and Foilage, you're a load of haters who have no right to make the allegations you do seeing as how you fit the very bill you're trying to pass. You have lost all credibility in calling anybody inferior.

The hatred is atrocious, it's all a bunch of hypocrisy. There are a-holes and good people in every country. Try to judge people, not nationalities.

Spydr072623d ago (Edited 2623d ago )

Wow, some people in here talk a lot of crap. Pathetic. I'm betting most of you are fat and sit on the comfort of your chair while real people who hold true pride for your country defends it.

So many foreigners bash the U.S. and its people for the arrogance inherent within. But by doing that you're only displaying your own arrogance and lack of overall maturity. Say what you want about the U.S., but how many billions have been spent on the rest of the world of America's money?

I'm a PROUD member of the military and have shed blood and tears for my faith and patriotism whilst wannabes like many of you talk crap about other nations merely out of principle alone. You know nothing of true pride.

Any country in this world can be bashed ad nauseum thru nearly every angle of attack imaginable due to historic mistakes and corrupt government regimes(if you think your govt isn't corrupt...they all are). Many kings of precious England are prime examples of this. I won't even get into the atrocities of Germany...

How many women were raped by the British as they invaded other lands when they had power? Or the Spanish? At least the U.S. doesn't go around slaughtering every living thing in a country, raping all of the women and claiming the territory for their own. Say what you will about the U.S., but when your home countries had the power (if it ever did), you all acted far worse than the U.S. ever has. From Italy and Greece, to England, all you ever did with power was murder and rape for the sole purpose of expanding your pathetic empires. The acts of which have been printed in as many languages as religion.

And sports? Really? You know soccer isn't the only sport in the world. Football, basketball, tennis, golf, baseball, boxing, track and MMA are all sports off the top of my head that have had very dominant Americans in it if not nearly completely dominated by the country.

The majority of all track world records are by African countries, Japan, and the U.S. The U.S. holds more swimming world records than any other country. Not to mention the Olympics.

Wanna talk gold medals and how the U.S. didn't win the most? Ok, well, we did win the most silver and bronze. So, while not winning the gold does mean we "lost", in a sense, more than Germany and Canada, we still didn't get outright CREAMED as much as they did because we placed in the top 3 a lot more. Just shows that while you peaked higher, your athletic well-roundedness is severely lacking.

So, yeah, go kick your soccer ball's not like you're doing anything lucrative to this websites purpose like making good games...which the U.S. does how much better than Germany and Canada? Don't worry, Germans, when it comes to slaughtering the helpless is where you truly succeed. Canada doesn't do anything lucrative for the rest of the world, so who cares?

Wonder how many disagrees I get in a U.S. hating website?

Sm0k3y_Bac0n2623d ago (Edited 2623d ago )

Americans really can't take the moral high ground over other countries. Britain murdered to create an empire, but Americans did to create their country. How many natives were killed during the creation of the USA?

Yes the Romans attacked other lands, but at least they bought technology and other improvements instead of dropping a nuke and killing over 100,000 people.

Americans made a lot of money from loans given out to countries fighting Hitler, and only became militarily involved after an attack on their homeland. Britain and France fought against Hitler because he attacked Poland and Britain joined WW1 after Germany attacked Belgium.

The list goes on, and I could go into Californian businesses financing Nazi genetic experiments. Germans slaughtered Jews, but you payed for it. For everything another large country has done it's past America has done something just as bad.

Spydr072623d ago (Edited 2623d ago )

And who was responsible for that? Hmm, Columbus was Italian and the pilgrims were from the great murderous empire of England. America didn't materialize until much later. Initially it was just murdering the inhabitants of this new land and spreading disease. You can also bring up slavery all you want. While it was wrong, it wasn't limited to America alone. Slavery was a worldwide epidemic and even approved of in the Christian bible. So that would be a moot point.

That's like blaming Mexicans for murdering the indigenous tribes in Mexico. Since...well...a Mexican is just the offspring of an Indian woman raped by a Spaniard (in general, some pure Spanish and indigenous blood could still be present, tho it's mostly Mestizo now).

It wasn't America's idea to murder all the Native Americans back then (since "Americans" didn't exist at the time). It was the British. In terms of world atrocities and corruption, we still fare far better than nearly every other superpower in history.

My point is this: get off your high horse on the so-called American arrogance. It's not like ANY European country who held such power was any less arrogant or less ruthless. They were all more ruthless and savage.

I'm guessing you meant "brought" tech, not bought. So, you're saying no Americans have enhanced the technology of the world? Really? That's naive. No American inventors...I didn't know that.

And yes, the Hiroshima and Nagasaki bombing were unfortunate. We were baited into that war...I can't say much in the defense of it. But if the ruthless Caesars or Kings would have had the tech, there's no doubt they'd have bombed everyone into the ground to rain supreme. Their hunger was for power...greed at its finest.

So, we should have just given money to countries fighting Hitler? In terms of economic rebuilding, America has done more than any other superpower. We've given more money, rebuilt more areas, and given people to volunteer in times of crisis. Would Hitler have help the people in Haiti? Or Julius Caesar (and he wasn't even the most ruthless)? One of England's terrible kings or queens? No. They would have annexed the area, looted it, raped and murdered its people.

The native tribes were no different with their greed.

To my understanding, yes, we did help fund Germany's Human Eugenics research. We invented the "Nazi" style of thinking, basically. As it grew with us, it blew up there. But as a country as a whole, an entire government body never sent mass amounts of cash to Nazi's after it all blew up. We weren't paying for them to make more tanks and guns to kill people.

You paint a one-sided picture--making it seem like the U.S. said, "Oh, you need more guns? Here's $4 billion." and that's not the case.

The fact that the Supreme Court endorsed (to a degree) the Nazi way of thinking is sickening. But we didn't actually try to murder all races on the planet that didn't fit a Nordic stereotype. So don't put the U.S. on that level.

Danteh2623d ago

spydr07 It's not that we hate america, it's that some americans think that they are the best in sports, but their football (aka soccer) team sucks balls :P (no pun intended)

And the FIFA Football World Cup is the single most watched event in the world, with a record of 1100 million people watching at the 2002 Germany-Brazil final

Sm0k3y_Bac0n2623d ago (Edited 2623d ago )

I wasn't talking about the British coming over and and killing the natives. They were still being ostracised and oppressed when America was America.

I dont know why you bought slavery up. America was one of the last major countries to abolish it and black people were oppressed for years after the abolition. The bible probably does say it's fine to enslave, but religion is that open to interpretation it can be used to justify anything.

I could spend all day arguing over the actions of America compared to the rest of the world. My point is that even though some countries may have done worse, a lot of their actions can't be defended. Others are more shades of grey (Money lending/donations, Marshall Aid.)

I just don't think that arguing that killing 100s of 1000s of innocent people is OK, just because other countries have done worse. Other countries actions can be called out all you want, but that does not make American actions right.

Spydr072623d ago

Agreed. The historic wrongdoings of any nation cannot be ignored less they be repeated...

My point is simply, how can you condemn the U.S. for being so bad and horrid when every country to hold a similar amount of power has done no better? Like I said before, every government in the world is corrupt. I made no exceptions.

BWS19822623d ago

you don't hate Americans, but 90 percent of "American" talk is out of sheer and utter hatred, nothing less. I come here all the time and see it, Americans are judged to harsher standards, and lumped in to some pile of filth, simply because of a few loud mouths.

Guess what, I acknowledge "soccer" is more popular than my fav sport (basketball) and I like soccer a lot too, in fact, I played it for 6 years as a kid. I still like it, but happen to enjoy another sport more. That doesn't make me ignorant, arrogant or deserving of hatred, but you know what? On this and many other forums it does. It's all over, it's ridiculous. There are jerks in every country, and that means America is no different, but don't pretend Americans somehow deserve the ludicrous blanket statements they get. We're all different, and we have a plethora of good people.

It's people like TDrules who despise a nationality and smear them relentlessly that often ends up making some Americans worse than they already are. Many of my countrymen will read his words and only increase their own arrogance and it's a shame, because at that point, neither side is helping the issue. It would be so much simpler if the act of judging someone ONLY on their actions--not their nationality or color or religion--was all we employed. One can dream, though, right?
