The day Gavin Mackenzie moves from a PlayStation magazine to an Xbox magazine, Sony sends him this image. What are they trying to say?
Kevin Butler (VP Of Sharpening Things) is coming for ya Gavin.
"Seriously, it can take hours just to update a PS3 game." Seriously? What a load.
Yeah, maybe if your using a router located in the other end of your house in your parents' computer room. Then you're kinda askin' for crappy download speeds. But hours? Yeah, that's totally false. Regular downloads are like lightning with me, though I will admit game updates can sometimes take a bit more time. But regardless, he's just making claims without even stating what his set-up is.
It's a load of truth. As anyone who's played Everybody's Golf: World Tour online knows
So 2 people on this planet know?
there is a word for it: banter
I think its because the 360 magazine paid him a lot more money
it isnt so much "hours" but it is a bit longer than updating the same game on 360. I think it's because sony uses a 2 step process. Step 1 is the actual download then step 2 is the install. On a 360, it is like it is installing as it downloads. Every time I dl a demo (or something) on the ps3 and do a background dl, I have to go and install it after it is finished. You dont have that on the 360. Why is that?
"Sony sends me this image" Yeah right. Sure.
Why in the hell did I click on that article? I could just feel brain cells leaving my head lol.
Man, seriously. The Picture says Traitor, it means YOU ARE A TRAITOR. What else? How can this prick become an Journalist he doesn't even know what that picture means. lol.
Read the last line.
-wasn't paying attention. ;/
Why are you asking why an article clearing marked "opinion piece" is news?
why? that's an extraordinary question to ask on n4g, lawl
I like him. Despite working on a Xbox 360 mag, he has a neutral view on both consoles' advantages and flaws.
Your right, I thought otherwise UNTIL I read the article. He really is nuetral.
What a troll, "by the way it was only a joke we are friends lol" My friend called me a cunt once, i didnt take it to the internet, write a stroy about and then say "its OK we are friends lol" at the end.
I wonder why he did that.
Commenting on your own article Gav? Classy. Still, fair play, I dont see how this opinion piece can be complained about when N4G is full of far worse crap each and everyday.
Yeah. I like to reach out to my public.
Lets just hope the 360 fanboys take your bait, and your friend forgives you for painting him like fanboy up until the last line. I'd compliment you on a well written opinion piece, but I've been hearing this same contrived crap from random bloggers since 2007. Try harder..
The used it as a starting point to discuss the real purpose of the article, which is his job to write....so yeah. He was just trying to be being creative.
Creative, flamebait headline? Toe-may-toe, toe-mah-toe?
The article basically turned into PS3 vs 360 comparison... Still one question though, as a journalist for a specific console do you not get to play games from "the other side"? If so how do you turn your fanboy on and off? (Well that was two questions lol)
I do, and my Fanboy has an on/off switch. Well, it does now. The PS3 one had a touchpad.
you argue over plastic and metal. No other way to put it. It's pathetic that if you say you don't like something about ps3 you get labeled a troll or some loser replies trying to present his opinion as fact. Here is an example: I think uc2 is boring and overrated but has great graphics and story. Now watch someone reply with an idiotic comment I lol at ps3 fanboys here and it's ironic since I play my ps3 a little bit more than my other consoles
<clap,clap,clap> there we go, someone else that could give two shits about the fanboys on this site. ...and i see the disagrees rolling your way, might as well give me some too because i thought KZ2 sucked balls.
Crackdown better than inFamous? LOL! Um okay, whatever you say traitor. Now tell me this. What does xbox have thats better than Motorstorm? What about fat princess? Or even Demon's Souls? How bout Wipeout HD and Super Star Dust 3-D? Please tell what in the hell do you even have to write about now that you are a 360 journalist? Halo Reach already came and went. Oh thats right, you got Kinectimals. Basing off the fact that you think the console war is gonna be won by the casual games, I can tell you in for the ride of your life. Have fun traitor.
Why does this guy feel he's so special that he needed an article like this?
Didn't anyone read the article? I clearly says that his friend sent the picture to hime as a joke and the article itself compares the two consoles fairly with an opinion. At least he said what elements he liked and disliked about each console and why rather than using blanket statements. Nice article BTW.
What a pointless article. Who the frak is this nobody? So he got a new job at an XBox mag' and is suddenly brave enough to criticise the PS3? Wow, my hero. Ted Price was right. Game journalism is a sensationalist toilet.
