A rumor from ps3tags is saying that Sony is going to be releasing their own gamercard system in the near future, giving more competition to ps3tag and the other ps3tag
microsoft is steeling exclusive games
gamercard sh!t take it and make it better
(Reply)hell yea if that 360 can handle it
Microsoft copy off of Home?
ah sony u r so sad.
and let me guess, the elite is shiny and black for.....what reason? immitation is the greatest form of flattery.
maybe XBL will take a hint and become a free service :P
edit: you disagree?...does that mean you want to pay extra for it? thats fine I guess....
Okay, so why exactly should they NOT do it? So what if XBL has already done it? If the gamers want it, give it to them!
They need the service, if they copy, so what!!! They need it and they are doing something about it. Good for them.
So what if sony copied?
Does that not mean they like Microsoft's idea there.
Besides the fact that sony's service is free already shows that sony is only building upon Microsoft's methods.
Hey Microsoft copies stuff too. They just copy the less significant things.
Lol, it's funny how everyone here is saying Sony is copying XBL. It's true it would be copying, but I really enjoy the Gamercard feature on XBL and hope Sony makes something similar for PS3.
sony isnt copying anyone.......they didnt make that site, its done independently
read it, they say sony is going to come out with there own
Being able to access Home on a web page on any browser to upload pics to your home space, check and send messages, and all for free anyone remember that?
Sony needs to do something to catch up to XBL.
It'll take a while, even if they make a carbon copy of XBL.
They're doing their own thing, I'll give credit where it's due. Home looks kinda cool. But it's still forever away, and XBL isn't slowing down any.
The fact that HOME even exists is proof that they're focused on creating revolutionary and high-quality services, not carbon-copying the competition. I use PSN all the time, and i've never experienced a hint of lag during online multiplayer. A lot of non-believers said that the service would have performance issues since "no one's paying for it", but I have yet to see those issues manifest themselves.
HOME is just The Sims online.
I get thw whole trophy thing and stuff but i don't want to buy a 600 dollar console to invite people to pretend to sit on a couch.
gonna be released in early October? Thats just about one month away now.
anyone who is in the Home beta knows that this is going to happen...
Maybe someone can finally explain this to me...
Why do people hate Sony so much? I personally had no ill will towards the xbox at all till so many of its fans started dissing them and their systems.
Its the games i want. I also surport blu-ray but that isnt a huge matter. Sony are getting better everyday. More games will come through and by 2008 sony '''hopefully''' will be on top again. Thats the time i will buy a ps3, i was a huge ps2 fan aswell. As my bio says i hate sony fanboys. I do. There is a unique difference between sony fanboy and sony fan:)
Edit: @Bazookajoe_83, i hate the offensive type of fanboys. Like that Mart guy, he cant seem to keep his useless opinion to himself. Catch my drift. I am a sony fan aswell as a Xbox fan but not a fanboy.
It's all because Sony was very successful during its first two generations. People want to see the big guys fall and watch the little guys kick em in the groin. That's one of the reasons why the Wii gets so much positive media attention: because the once King of Consoles Nintendo lost a ton of ground, humbled itself, and came out with a cute machine that everyone loves.
As for the XBOX, overall attention doesn't seen too positive or too negative because they're still new in the game biz.
Think of the new iPhone. Apple became insanely popular with the iPod. Now that they're #1, it seems that a lot of people want the iPhone to fail.
It's a shame.
Do you hate all fanboys or just sony fanboys?
coco, i hate to break it to you, but Nintendo is not a little guy.
I know what you mean, but I was just talking in terms of consoles (obviously in handhelds they're unmatched). Look at the Gamecube: fantastic games, but for some odd reason not many bought one, thus making Sony king of the consoles for a generation.
Gamercards are Microsoft's invention. Enough said.
BTW, Sony is a little late to the party. There are people with 100,000+ gamer scores on XBL. Every game on 360 supports it. When Sony comes out with this they'll miss out on all the first year titles supporting it.
Disagree with me, I don't care. As an owner of both systems, my 360 gamer score will always be higher because I buy more games for 360.
and the next thing youll say is that motion control is for the sixaxis is the wii's invention and home copied miis from the wii
Actually motion control was released by MS on Sidewinder years ago but it failed.
wrong sixaxis was released on ps1 first look it up
Motion controls have been around for AGES, look at arcade games.
And MS didn't come up with gamercards, Xfire did.
Motion control was out since the Atari days with a glove thing (but it sucked of course). I wasn't even born that long ago and I know more then you older guys, pathetic.
most electronic products are not original. thy are just products of a set of previous ideas and features combined with a few intuitions
My selfish ass was starting to get angry with MSFT becuae they stopped announcing little tib bits on XBL future updates now I know why. Sometime I do forget Sony sits back waiting to see what works with the 360.
MSFT not saying anything insures MSFT can sell their console with their innovations for longer periods of time before others cancel out the advantage by playing catch up(PS3 is EXCENTUALLY designed my MSFT)(-_-) 8).
Like I said it all depends who does this better not who did it first.
I have always known that Sony would make their own, and when that comes out it's going to make all the other one's pointless..
Since Sony's will be official and will actually update with your PS3..
sh1t, it goes all the way back to the glory days of nintendo and sega, its what helps move the video game buisbess foward and provide us (the consumer) with the best stuff we can get.
exactly when sony, microsoft, and nintendo make a console they are providing a service and when they dont have something that the customers want but the other guys do its copied to make there own customers happy example: ps3 had an hdmi output slot and xbox didn't so what did the do they came out with the elite which has what boys and girls?
bubbles for you NikV3
i thought everyone knew that sony was going to have an online service like xbl
They are just making a fuss trying to give sony bad feedback because of the move. XBL is a very good service and PSN i hear is getting better, lets just hope sony can hit the point MS are on and go even
further. Fingers crossed.
there is no rumor there AT ALL regarding the headline .. this is the 2nd highlight they have wanted to lift from us in the last 2 days. really lame REALLY lame.
IN FACT the art work they are using is from ps3tag.com .. the TagPaper that was legitimately featured today as a story .. HOW LAZY!
this is not confirmation at all for sony gamercards, although i do believe they are coming soon, this guy so "so it seems" whoever wrote this has just as good a guess as we do
wow I can believe they'd steal ideas...but damn steal gamer tags? lol wow what crap sony is when it comes to making new ideas.
echochrome and littlebigplanet just made your entire comment worthless.
at least sony has some new minds when it comes to games. all Microsoft can make is ANOTHER halo and a crappy PGR4 game to make $$$. First party microsoft developers cant do crap, which is why they throw money around to other developers for exclusivity.
if you can't beat em, pay em.
But aparently some people do, and some people also seems to have problem with Sony haveing their own gamescore thing.
I thought Home was Sony's idea. Why'd they have to take the gamercard idea?
And why do more cars than Volvo have airbags?
It's a safety feature and first appeared on American automobiles. The airbag was invented by John W. Hetrick of Newport, PA, U.S. in 1951. Where does Volvo fit in?
No where i just wanted to know if they invnted the airbags ;-) My point was that everything is being copied, otherwise the progress anywhere would stagger.
Sony couldn't copy the online of XBL properly
Sony couldn't copy the motion control of Wii properly
Sony's devlopers couldn't port the 360 games properly
And now you'd think they will copy and improve upon the gamer points.
SUTup...matter of Fact all fo you shutup...just because you idiots found something first on the 360 does not mean they made it up....You guys are all fan boys most ideas come from someone elses... home is nothing like the sims you guys are just losers then that means live is like the TV guide....
You do know that "Sony's Devs" don't port 360 games. That's the job of the 3rd party developers, not Sony. Sony can't be blamed for the weak ports. The devs ultimately decide what console they put the game on.
whatever if it comes cool if not then cool too
omg this is new??
we´ve seen the gamercard in a video of home and Unreal Tournament III
its not a rumor its true...
Tracking player stats was not "invented"... Its been around in sports before EVERYONE posting here was born.
To accuse someone of copying from Microsoft is really funny. What exactly did they invent?
Maybe I am just old school, but I hope I can choose NOT to participate in the gamercard system.
If it lets the sony fans have a better gaming service, then let them have it. It doesn't effect me at all. Whether or not you have tags, i will still have them and enjoy xbox live.
share the wealth
they steel nintendo's motion, then steel gamercards, i don't think they have a clue what they are doing anymore
"Steal" not "Steel as in man of steel, the iron like substance"
Sorry had to do it otherwise you'd keep on making this mistake
sony: "damm we need to create a great online service, hmmm how about we slowly copy XBL, no one will ever know where we got the ideas"
micro: "hey how you doing back there sony, if you keep this up you might just one day be called a next gen online service"
sonykids: "its not micro's idea just because they did it first"
360 fans: "wow, one day sonys online service might be called PSXBL"=
First of all, it's free, that's not like XBL... Also, Home will be completely different than what any1 has seen before, and it will continue to grow.
think about what you said person above me.
"Its not like it at all, its free and one day it is going to be a bit different"
MS Exec 1: "Hmm, how can we sell more consoles?"
MS Exec 2: "I know! Let's paint the 360 black and add HDMI!"
MSE1: "Didn't SON--I mean "They who must not be named" already build a console like that? Besides, Pete said HDMI wasn't needed."
MSE2: "True, but are fans are loyal to a fault. They won't noticed because they lack any sense of detecting irony. Besides, we'll just spin it as an awesome deal and they'll fall for it."
MSE1 & 2: "YEAH!" *high fives.
too bad the color BLACK and HDMI aren't IDEAS that sony CREATED FIRST=
And Ms was first with gamertag, dual analog controller, four button configuration memmory card?
Better then lame arsed trophies. That whole trophy room thing sounded really weak.
Are you guys just stupid or do you not have eyes? Everyone here is arguing back and forth, making the old Xbot "copying" accusation, yet the article this page directs to IS NOT EVEN TALKING ABOUT THAT! This post was a bait post and you idiots don't even realize it, nice.
Just copy it if it works. Wii-mote=Sixasis. N64 rumble=dualshock.etc. etc.. I hope pretty soon that someone makes a new design for a controller they like. Seing as how they haven't changed it since the PS1.
...you do realize sony is a lot more innovative than nintendo AND microsoft?
Dual analog controller?
CD, DVD, and Bluray drives in PS1, PS2 and PS3?
Double Trigger buttons?
Four button configuration?
Heck, Memory cards?
everybody copied everybody. suck it up. if nobody copied anybody, technology would cease to continue
Sony has to do something and finally they do. OK ok they copy, but hey if it makes PS3 better. I don't care, because PS3 is far from being great for gamers.
Its a good idea, couldn't care less if it was copied from ms or whatever, everybody copies, as long as they copy good stuff its all good.
Please dont copy the whole paying for playing online thing..
Paying for playing happens to be one of the main reasons why XBL is so good now. Obviously most of the PS3 free raiders can't see the big picture. Too bad for us.
