It might not be too much of a surprise, but Microsoft's Stephen McGill has expressed just a little bit of ambivalence towards Sony and their PlayStation 3 lineup.
What do expect him to say.Its his job to promote MS products.Hes hardly going to go out and praise the competition Dumb article
I'm surprised he admitted that he has a PS3 :)
Know your enemy....I think that's a good reason he owns one or that he just likes to game which is more normal. It's really not an issue.
Well he is the marketing boss. He cant talk about Sony's marketing because for the past year, Kevin Butler has totally overshadowed microsoft's core advertising strategies. Doesnt want to remind HIS bosses why he didnt come up with something as amusing. Maybe he'll get fired soon. Lol
hahahaha IT BURNSSSSS right
Would a ford sales men talk you into buying a chevy.
What is supposed to say? I play my PS3 all the time and love it. Everyone should go out and buy one, here is my gamertag. He works for MS he can’t say that…
No, but he could say something like "While I feel MS offers the best gaming platform of this moment, Sony is a professional company that offers us healthy competition and we respect their history & experience". When someone starts negative campaigning, in industry or politics, it usually means that they have nothing positive to say about themselves.
yea but no body has the balls to say that bcuz fear of been put out of a job. at sony they encurage professional healthy competition and respect.
but the 360 will never have games like uncharted 1 , let alone uncharted 2 god of war 3 heavenly sword ffvs 13 , the last guardian , gt5 , lbp 2 killzone 2, killzone 3 , motorstorm ,the only thing ps3 and 360 share is multiplatforms games thats about it
Lol i would way rather be playing 360 exclusives than those, as well as the superior multiplats. They are all overrated in many gamers eyes, i couldnt even play longer than a couple of hours on uncharted without being bored to death, not to mention the horrendously bad multiplayer. The PS3 doesnt even have a gamne like GT5 either.
So your name is 'many gamers' ?
I just laughed so hard at that comment that I shot Red Bull out my nose...
Which 360 exclusives would you "rather be playing"? Please, tell us. I haven't snorted with derision for a few days now. Also, please remember this VERY simple equation: "you" does NOT equal "many gamers". And the meaning of your last comment eludes me. Yes, PS3 DOES have a game "like GT5"... it's called GT5.
You have a personal preference for the 360's games. I have a personal preference for titles from Sony and Nintendo. We're simply individuals. Neither of us speaks for "many gamers." We only speak for ourselves, and our opinions aren't facts that everyone else has to accept.
"The PS3 doesnt even have a gamne like Gt5 either." What?
I mean, it is rated as one of the best games of ALL TIME. Maybe Uncharted 3 will be up your alley.
=), actually Ps3 exclusives are far better than those overrated generic Haloz shit... And, "The PS3 doesnt even have a gamne like GT5 either.".... no comment...
Haha you morons, if the PS3 has a game called GT5, please go out and buy it, cause i bet you cant. I love it when you make fools of yourself. Xbox owners have been enjoying 2 AAA racing games since its come out, you PS3 lames have had nothing, NOTHING for years and years.
4 million people already have where you been.
I DID buy GT5 Prologue so calm down, sunshine - you sound like a clichéd mad scientist. And "morons"?? Well, you know what they say: When the person you're arguing with starts name-calling like a little girl, you know you've won. I also notice that you didn't list those amazing exclusives you were bleating about, either.
I'm friends with this guy. He loves playing his PS3
their over confidence will be there downfall
well, lowballing their competition has always been MS's marketing tactic, which, doesn't really work btw.
I'll just leave this here.... http://i51.tinypic.com/qnvd...
I love the fact that picture contains a game for the ps3 thats on the pc, as everyone always seems to say those types of games aren't exclusive...
DC universe aside.... do you want to actually talk about the huge elephant in the room? or do you believe that damage control is sufficient?
Exile is right. You're all a bunch of hypocrites. When someone on the other side of the fence even mentions that a PC/360 inclusive is exclusive, BAM, ya'll jump him and correct him. Now when one of your buddies does it, it's just a small oversight right? This is the truth. Disagree all you want, but you guys are biased and corrupt to the damn core.
LMAO oh yeah...you only see one sides hypocrisy. Scratch Final fantasy online and dc universe off the list....The point still stands and thats 11 normal (core) games plus the probable ones like mlb 11 etc vs gears 3 plus (you fill the gaps)....what a joke. You're going on like he made the list or even said 'here is a list of ps3 exclusives'...lighten up cause 'you guys' sure sound very bitter if that's all you can bitch and claw about....meooooow hissss Its obviously a sly bit o banter as the ps3 list doesnt show any of the upcoming move games... lighten up, its just making a point and as a 360 owner the facts are worrying.
@Clizzz I hope you're joking right.... Yes DC universe is also on PC and it's not console exclusive, and that person should be correct. BUT you're focusing on that, rather than the obvious point the person was going across, and suddenly make A GENERALIZATION RESPONSE WHICH IS NEVER GOOD ON THE INTERNET.
Look at my comment history. I'm not blind, I'm quite aware of the "greater situation" with MS. Quite well aware. But you're both still missing the point. I've seen countless folk brutalized over calling Splinter Cell: Conviction and Mass Effect 2 "exclusives". You guys want to come at me for sounding bitter, well I'm coming at you for being one sided. It is what it is. I'm not talking about the bigger picture, I'm talking about WHAT he did in his post, for the sake of fairness. Otherwise, what leg do YOU have to stand on when you call others out for a mistake that will continue to be made, hmmm?
take you grievance to those who bring it to you. Dont paint every ps3 fan with the same brush because that's what you're doing/did. Anybody can see its a light hearted bit of fun but you've almost turned it into some next crap. Even if your comment history is fair it doesnt mean we just have to agree with ya or that is being hypocritical. Read your own comment again. That dont sound bitter to you....i envisaged clenched fists when i read that..lol plus this isnt about being one sided its just about not taking something as funny as that graphic tooooo seriously thas all... i mean if all it took was the omission of those two games for you not to burst a blood vessel then you really have wonder if something else is bothering you today;) Im sh!ting ya but chill out, id only type this much because i had zero issues with ya and consider you fair so smile with me
@Clizzz You completely missed the point I was going at judging by your last message. I'll put it much more simple: Don't Generalize.
cool pic though =P a little brash @ Ex1le ok...remove DC Universe...WOW big difference =P
I was merely pointing out an observation, I love the fact theres a nice long fanboy arguement under my comment though because it really proves my point
@Ex1Le Except read what's going on below there before blindly saying it's proving your point.
upcoming ps3 exclusives: killzone 3, resistance 3, ratchet & clank all 4 one, motorstorm: apocalypse, yakuza 4, ar tonelico 3, disgea 4, twisted metal, little big planet 2, agent, final fantasy versus XIII, gran turismo 5, ni no kuni, infamous 2, white knight chronicles 2, socom 4, the last guardian, the next tales game, mlb 11 the show, starhawk, uncharted 3, persona 5. highest rated HD exclusives: uncharted 2 metacritic 96 little big planet metacritic 95 MGS4 metacritic 94 halo 3 metacritic 94 best console graphics ever: uncharted 2, god of war 3, killzone 2
"highest rated HD exclusives: uncharted 2 metacritic 96 little big planet metacritic 95 MGS4 metacritic 94 halo 3 metacritic 94" I can't remember, which one of those four gave out 800 dollar 'gift bags' to reviewers...
Console wars should be left to fanboys and Kevin Buttler pranks, not corporate staff. Yet, MS employees fail to act as grown ups.
its not just console wars, this has always been microsft and i've hated them for it. console wise, you notice that peter moore is actually calmer and doesnt trash talk since he left microsoft..
Sad but True. Gears of War, HALO, FABLE, FORZA, COD, ALAN WAKE, MASS EFFECT, CRACKDOWN, GEARS 2 AND 3, FORZA 3 LEFT 4 DEAD, CONVICTION YOUR MOTHER. fable 2 3. CODENAME KINGDOMS. FORZA KINECT STAR WARS KINECT. KINECT baby.
Really sad indeed,.. Even with so many multiplats, average and really old games still a really sad list,.. Kinect itself, is the lulz right there,..
you Aaron Greenberg? Stop trolling the N4G.
So you listed gears twice, fable twice and forza twice. L4D, COD and Mass Effect..... I shouldn't have to say it Great list. You just managed to make the lineup look worse than I even thought it was lol
On the subject though i do somehow share his sentiment only the other way around. I think kinect is all right, very eyetoy like. And not just kinect games but 360 games i havent touch my xbox in years heck my xbox live account (xXDeathClawXx)i believe is no longer active. most of the games i like on the 360 have gotten superior ports on the ps3, ninja gaiden sigman, batman arkhum, tales of games, and now mass effect 2 and portal 2. See how easy it is...i too have opinions and prefferences.
And now mass effect 2 without extra content, no graphics update, after 1 years. This is living.
actually its required that they put in extra content.Sony went and made it a rule any game thats being ported over is required to have additional exclusive content.
@Ginbe Better than having to waste my money on another xbox.
The same thing. This is not news worthy. Microsoft has gone after Sony right from the get go. They are direct competitors and that rivalry transfers onto the forums. http://forums.n4g.com/defau... Look at how busy the Playstation 3 forums are compared to the others. This explains why this site is very pro-Sony and very anti-Microsoft. Im not saying all Playstation 3 owners are anti-Microsoft because i myself own both systems and i enjoy both immensely and i imagine quite a few others do too.
You obviously wasn't around in 2006-2008. Try looking up the past and see all the 'PS3 is teh DOOMED' articles posted EVERY DAY. This is what goes around coming back around.
uncharted 1 n 2,killzone 2 GOW3 are very boring n overated
first you need to buy a ps3 you son.....................
If uncharted 1 is something its underrated. I would probably go as far as to call it a modern classic.
You have no taste.
Deep down inside, he knows the PS3 is awesome and has an incredible future ahead. Hell, Sony even got Gabe Newell to change his mind about it.
Well yeah, if he didn't feel that way he wouldn't have felt the need to say what he said here
2011 ps3 line up is a beast. this guy is just sad.
What an awful title. On topic, whats he supposed to say? "Oh man, I'm super excited to play the PS3 lineup!"
He does not know what supporting a console through AAA software means.
It looks like the big fat green monster came out of it's corner swinging it's huge green gloves, and gained an injury early on (RROD) but got a few decent jabs in, then punched itself out in round 8. All that's left now for the dark destroyer to do is to knock out the lumbering, unfit pretender to the gaming crown. But then, we all knew that the dark destroyer had the training from the start to go the distance. In the mean time, in between rounds the cute little white number holds up the round numbers.
Its his job to act this way i mean he isnt going to come out and say ¨sony has so many more exlclusives than us¨ not trying to troll here but if microsoft is comming out with more exclusives than sony next year i would like to know cause i find it quite dumb how they only have kinect games plus gears of war 3 next year
Absolutley pathetic. the man needs to be fired. " a little bit more accurate" Pftt.
Microsoft always blatantly attacks the competition. Always with predictions of failure and inferiority when they themselves couldn't even make a reliable system. The Wii was made of cheap parts and it still didn't fail as much as a 360. Microsoft went on and on about how Bluray was a bad idea and how the PS3 would never sell.They were wrong.And now their back saying Move will never sell and 3D is a gimmick. 3D is being backed by very large movie studios like Dream Works and Disney, Nintendo is basing their new hand held on it and 3DTVs are still being sold and Move looks to have sold at least 4 million units worldwide.When will people realize Microsoft is full of it. They never stop talking and never learn anything.Their people and supporters are the biggest blowhards in the industry. They just throw money around to cover up their faults and inferiority. And no matter what $hit they do they never gain any humility. Everyone is always saying this site is pro Sony because they never want to admit that Sony is gaining ground quickly. Look how many Microsoft fans nearly wet their pants when they found out the PS3 might have passed the 360.It's pathetic how badly you want the Ps3 to remain in third place.
In other news, a Coca Cola executive didn't have nice things to say about Pepsi. LOL
His loss I guess. If he wants to live off of Multi-platform games then thats his problem not mine lol He must be shook of the beastly 2011 line up of the PS3 and how many more customers they could bring in. Look at it for christs sake, how can anyone deny this is a bad line up of titles: Gran Turismo 5 (November2010) Killzone 3 Little Big Planet 2 Twisted Metal Motorstorm Apocalypse Final Fantasy Versus XIII Resistance 3 Uncharted 3??? Ratchet & Clank: All 4 One The Last Guardian Ico Collection Disgaea 4 InFamous 2 New Tales of Game Bleach + All of those sweet multi plat titles. I don't think I'll be able to afford it personally. I dunno why companies can't talk well of each other. Nintendo and Sony have said bad and good things about each other. I've not once ever seen Microsoft congratulate Sony or Nintendo on any of their merits and even if they have, they've made it a back hand comment. Not to mention some of the shit Greenburg does like troll about exclusive game sales on twitter or the goons at Turn 10 manipulating vs. polls with offers of DLC. Such a disgusting company. They've done so well to go from nothing, to a force to be reckoned with. And I thank them greatly and give them kudos for how they've pushed the online social experience on home consoles. But for gods sake they just ruin their rep with the shit they do and say. They need to grow up
The immaturity of the Microsoft employees is astounding. No games? The PS3 has more exclusives than I've EVER seen on another console besides maybe the SNES. Get your head out of your butt.
Why does it seem like every representative from MS are douches? I'm not saying they are,but they come off as one.
