It has become clear: if you're a hardcore gamer and you can only have one console, it really needs to be the PS3...an equal-opportunity employer of top-notch quality for all genres.
I approve of this message
damn straight, the ps3 is the best console ive owned period! from demons souls, to killzone 2, to motorstorm, to god of war...
to heavy rain to uncharted 2, to heavenly sword...
and soon GT5, TLG, LBP2, Infamous 2, KZ3 :)
This article is nothing but flamebait. My favorite next gen console is the PS3 but that doen't men it's the only "hardcore" console, shit the wii is a hardcore console as much as the xbox 360 and the PS3, but the PS3 has so many features that it makes the other consoles look like last gen DVD 9 is starting to wareout and it's now time for Blu-Ray (next gen).
8 days, the getaway, socom, starhawk, twisted metal.
He didnt say PS3 is the only hardcore console, he says its the best.
from infamous to uncharted1 to haze oh wait to rachet and clank to resistence2 : P....
To GoW3 http://i46.tinypic.com/f53l... To GT5 http://i49.tinypic.com/1585... http://i45.tinypic.com/2ih9...
well in my opinion wii is the best.....see what I'm getting at. EDIT: Sorry I meant THE ALL MIGHTY PS3 now is my opinion worth something?.
Yeah, you just showed how worthless your opinion is.
You guys are pathetic this whole industry somehow brainwashed you I just simply don't comprehend how something can be more hardcore than the other it can obviously be better but more hardcore?? Let's do a hardcore test shall we: Madworld>LBP Gearsofwar>wiifit GodOfWar>VivaPinata Don't you see all consoles have hardcore games to offer so please stop with all these flamebait articles and let's start getting some real news from N4G.
resistance to white night chronicals socom sly collection etc lol i think this can go on for years
ti the Wii fans, GTFO here this is for hardcore only kids. bu bu but the salesss.
bububu im not talking about sales? i asked a question if those were hardcore games? thats all
For Lair haters, give it another go and make sure you download the analogue control patch. The only disgusting graphics i played in the game is during the night mission with the search lights and the looking at foot soldiers from far away. It's really cheap now but the game is only worth one playthrough and you'll fight monsters as big if not bigger than the titans of GOW3.
Please read the article, he explained his view of the term 'hardcore'. Pretty good editorial, great time to start enjoying a PS3.
Pc first then ps3 for those who are too dumb or too lazy to have a "REALLY" powerful system. ps3 only console for hardcore. gay statement. Acting like pc doesnt exist or some shit. Or WAHHH!! it doesnt count cause its not a console. plays games and it does a helluva lot more than "everything" god go suck someone elses D^&K ps4= large penis with sony stamped on it. and the instructions "insert in mouth" but who cares it will have wifi!
Hardcore bandwagon again. But even so, third parties still have little to no chance of success with core games on the Wii.
I agree with everything you say. I love the ps3 but to have a need to continuiously shout it out with articles like this, is bringing N4G down. More constructive arguments and discussions go along way. But dont expect to see that in an article like this. Not really sure what "Hardcore" is when games are concerned, nothing changes when you play unchartered 2 A GREAT GAME...or hello kitty island adventures....its all the same..theres still a standby button and theres still no element that your going to die in real life... Just a silly terminology used by teens.
to free PSN, to Free Web Browsing(Plugins, Adobe Flash Enabled), to PS Home, to PS+, to Blu-Rays, to free wifi, to battery-less controllers, to reliability, to PS Move, to Hack Proof,o wait I don't want that one. And of course to all around good exclusives.
bubbles for the name. And agreed.
Don't cry about it dude. People are allowed to disagree with you. I disagree with your statement, that's reason enough to hit disagree.
Yeah, a really non-biased source as well.
to god of war collection, to final fantasy versus, to heavenly sword to uncharted 1, to agent...
kingdavid - I like how NastlyLeftHook just ignored what you said and continued naming games.
So does that mean he's wrong, or does it just make it easier for you to disregard? If an American said the USA has the best talent pool in the world for basketball, does that mean he's lying cos he roots for his own team? You assume he likes PS3 cos he writes for psxextreme, but maybe he writes for psxextreme cos he likes PS3. I dont like blondes because I have a blonde girlfriend, I have a blonde girlfriend because I like blondes.
PSXExtreme is actually been a rather neutral site even catching some heat for calling out Sony on things they didn't like seeing. But even if the site was not oriented towards the PlayStation the author would be bias since he is making an argument saying that the PS3 is a more hardcore console. Bias in not an issue in an opinion piece only the arguments offered.

Gay statement Never knew statements had a sexuality.
Yep, Nintendo left a long time ago and now MS has abandoned it's core gamers. Think about it, all that's left is more Halo, more Gears, and Fable III (now multiplat).. Oh and let's not forget about Forza. Other than that, it's all shovelware trying to emulate the success of the Wii.
If you saw E3 you'll know that Nintendo is definitely here.
You can't beat the exclusives. Sony just excels like crazy at first party exclusives. No other console comes close in that way. Nintendo has some good first party games, but they are mostly games in the same franchises, they don't have the variety that you get on the PS3. I like my 360 too, but Sony rules at creating awesome exclusives. Free internet, reliable hardware and Blu-ray only add to the value.
No there is also XBox PC and Wii
yeah but they aren't needed to have the best gaming experience a ps3 is.
You are aware someone can not be interested in PS3 games, its all subjective.
still the only games worth buying on the 360 are multiplat and with move you can get better substitutes for wii games. also because the ps3 is so open you get everything the pc version gets like mods, steam and keyboard and mouse support. ps3 exclusives are just icing on a perfect cake.
Also subjective some might love 360 exclusives.
i know that there is a lot of good games on xbox 360 cause well i had one for 2 years and played pretty much the best of the best so far. for my personal gaming tastes, the ps3 just does it better for me that's all. one genre that playstation always does best is jrpgs. that is not one of the xbox 360's strongest genres.i wish that you could find niche games like demon's souls and 3d dot game heroes on the xbox 360 but sadly you really can't. I'm 19 and been playing playstation since i was like 9. i like shooters but there are way too many on ps3 and xbox 360. ms puts too much focus on online and shoooters.they need more single-player games like alan wake.
That won't help MS one bit lol... They can keep Allan Wake as far as I am concerned. I am starting to sound like a troll for that game but it just sucked so much. Glad I hired it before I believed the hype and bought it.
There's a reason why I never paid attention to the Wii in the console war because it was too casual. Now although the 360 still caters to the hardcore I feel like it's starting to head in the direction of the casual.
Sadly, I kind of feel like that too. Some people here know that I have always liked both the 360 and the PS3, but I really do feel like Microsoft is kind of leaving core gamers behind. It seems like they just want to go after casuals because they see it as a lucrative market. Sure, they throw us a few bones here and there with games like Halo Reach, Gears 3 and Fable 3 (and I am really looking forward to those games), but you can't just keep pumping out the same three or four franchises forever. I hope Microsoft see the errors in their ways and realize that you need strong first party support. They also need to realize that their bread and butter always has been and always will be the hardcore gamers.
But I do agree that the PS3 is the MOST hardcore out of all the gaming systems. I've never played a more diverse experience of games other than the PSX brand, especially.. the PS3. -End statment
More nonsense straight out of N4G, everyone knows the PC is the only real platform for the true hardcore. The community is smarter the variety is wider and the options are endless. Want to play 3D at 2400p on the PC that's not an issue. PS3 the only choice for hardcore LOL. http://www.youtube.com/watc... Call me when the PS3 can deliver an experience like in that youtube link. O wait it's impossible 5 PS3's stuck together couldn't run that.
dam right, playstation does it ALL
This guy doesn't know what hardcore is...lol " I don't associate hardcore with time spent, skill or genre " Yep, this guy only owns a PS3. If you only own a PS3 you've missed the best this gen has to offer. The highest selling games on PS3 are multi-platform games. ALL multi-platform games play and look better on 360, case closed. Here's 2010 line up for the hardcore. Mass Effect: http://www.youtube.com/watc... Metro 2033: http://www.youtube.com/watc... Splinter Cell Conviction: http://www.youtube.com/watc... Alan Wake: http://www.youtube.com/watc... Crackdown 2: http://www.youtube.com/watc... Halo Reach: http://www.youtube.com/watc... Fable 3: http://www.youtube.com/watc... If you Have a $1200 PC, you could play some of these games, but if you have a PS3, forget about it. Instead, you get to buy a new TV and a new controller and watch all your games with glasses on. For $150 ( arcade ) or $299 for the new 360, you can have the best controller in gaming, best on line service, best interface/operating system and of course the best library of games. People that game have all the console at this point anyways...lol. 2011 is looking promising for the hardcore as well... http://www.youtube.com/watc...
It's funny how you're talking talking and then all of a sudden, jumped right into an informercial for the 360. "For $150 ( arcade ) or $299 for the new 360, you can have the... bla bla bla... bla bla bla..." "And if you order within the next 30 minutes, we'll add RRoD for free! *with shipping and handling fee."
It's not the only choice.
ye we still have PC and the Wii is starting to make some hardcore games
long live to my ps3 X)
not really every other console is as hard core also
no dought man,no dought.
Uh, yeah. Demon`s Souls all by itself proves that the PS3 has the most challenging games for hardcore players. Throw MGS4, Killzone 2 and Wipeout HD into the mix, and the casuals are going to run to the hills.
Don't forget Motorstorm.
fk yeah, i am on that train. i love games. got my PS3, 360, DS, PSP, PS2 all in the name of playing great great GREAT quality games across all genres and platforms. Forget about which console is better, for HARDCORE GAMERS great games are found across all platforms. The PS3 does offer a huge variety of the highest quality titles across many genres, gotta love it. The 360 has its share of exclusives that convinced me and many to buy one Gaming is heaven lol
This article is clearly flame bait and I'll see the disagrees, but as a gamer who has all the consoles I only ever use my PS3 offline because the online and coive chat are so bad. I use the 360 for any online games. I will say in the interest in debate, what's more hardcore then Halo Reach and Gears Of War 3? I don't really think there is anything. I mean Black Op's is Hardcore as well, I know it's on PS3 as well, but the COD games tend to always sell better and have more competition on the 360 version. To each their own, but I don't see PS3 as a hardcore Gaming machine.
all you guys have left is but but but "chat" I dont gave a shit about that. Live is the most overrated thing of all time. You guys act like its light years ahead of psn and thats a all out lie. It should be free imo for what it is. You have a shit ton of tabs that you guys call "features" When if you had a damn web browser you wouldnt need 100+ tabs to go to facebook and all that other useless crap. Edit: oh yeah halo online is so hardcore you get to listen to 10 year olds talk shit every match...
Did this guy really just say Call of Duty is a hardcore game? LOL.
I'm callin BS on your comment right now! "what's more hardcore then Halo Reach and Gears Of War 3?" Thanks for the EPIC LULZ.
i can chat in real life and i have real friends i can call on a cell phone to play games with i dont need to make fake friends to "chat" about gay things xbox live is not a chat room and if it is thats why ur paying $50 every year for 5-10 years? i thought it was to unlock the other 50% of the game that u just paid for b/c believe it are not cross game chat is availible with xbl silver so ur not paying for any of those features u also have in game music without xbox live? give me 3 features worth $500 in 10 years? why should i pay $500 to unlock online play? why... and whats more hardcore then gears and halo? i dont know maybe killzone2? most realistic shooter on a console? demon souls? the best action rpgs this gen? rachet and clack the best platformer almost ever? socom4? the revival of a classic series GT5 the king of racers here to show need for speed forza and maybe even TDU2 how its done? there is plenty games more hardcore the active relodes rushers grenade sticking over powerd snipers 12 year old kids acting like there rapeing you and guys in pink suites jupming 50 feet in the air :\
I call BS fanboy... End
Excuse me but i have to shut you down right there. i own multiple consoles and No just No. those games are shooters that can be learned in a few minutes. come back here when you beat Demon's Souls at least once, (took me 150hrs to get 100% on that game, I'm not a newbie neither been playing games for 21yrs) then tell me if there's a game more hardcore than that form you're 360 library I'll be happy to play it, because there are none on mine.
tired of hearing people say they use their 360 for online and ps3 for offline. What, because the 360 has a couple more features than ps3. When playing online their identical, its not 2006 anymore, no matter how much 360 fanboys want it to be
No they are not identical online.The PS3 has less lag and higher player counts for games(usually 32 player minimum for exclusives)so if fact playing online is better on PS3.360 has better community features but worse play experience.Popular wisdom is so often not the truth.
