Two highly anticipated PS3 games have been released, Heavenly Sword and Lair, and to the surprise of many, only one scored decent while the other bombed. PX360 discusses what went wrong and asks if Sony can regain lost ground.
Demise??? lol!!!! Remember, that is like writing off a sprinter 10 meters into the 100 meter dash!!! They would be wise to not count them down and out yet. There is a long long way to go
XBOX 360 fans worry about the XBOX 360 and leave the PS3 alone. There's no need for this. By the way, I'm really enjoying Heavenly Sword. Passing a chapter per day because I heard it's not long.
controlling arrows with sixaxis, awsesome. I think the sixaxis finally got put to good use with Heavnely sword.
The PlayStation 3 is one of the hottest electronic items on the planet and that's definitely not uncool.
Yep hottest electronic item to sit on the store shelves gathering dust.
Just like the 360 in japan, sak500.
I am by far no fanboy of either system, but neither system is going anywhere. I have all three and to be honest, the Wii and the 360 for now are gathering more dust. They all have their fun points and will be around for the life of their systems. Sony has great stuff as does the 360. It doesn't matter which system has sold more units...for if you were true gamers you would only care about what your favorite systems is offering you now and in the future and couldn't care less about the "competition." From a monetary standpoint... of course the 360 has sold more units (likewise with the CHEAPER Wii)... they are currently cheaper because they are now easier to manufacture. The same will be for the PS3 in time when components and technology manufacturing costs come down. Sony just needs to focus on the games right now (as well as beefing up their rapidly improving online portion). You guys are forgetting how much of a headstart MS had on Xbox live even before the 360 came out. There were plenty of games that were starting to come out with Live capability....not so with the PS2. Don't get me wrong...I love my xbox live for it does richly enhance gameplay and replayability... but I have high hopes for Sony now that I have been able to try for truly first venture into and Live-like realm. Sony has proven themselves many times over in the past as far as their adaptability and technological improvements which is why they were once kings of the Gaming World. I wouldn't count them down for a long time.... I have become a Sony fan like it or not...even though I hated the PS2.
It comes from a dedictated X360 website
it should be x360's demise
HS is now the top selling game all over EU
ps3 beats x360 10:1 in JAPAN and 3:1 in EU
x360 is the least selling console in the world
although ps3 is at no2 on HMV (UK's biggest retailer chain)
x360 is nowhere in sight
PEOPLE complain to the MOD about this being SPAM
i knew it you are Amitpaul from GT. dude do you do this same stuff on every site?
An Xbox 360 site writing about the PS3? Lol. This is so stupid.
Chances are that most ProSony people didn't even listen to the podcast. As it is quite long.
And just decided they didn't like the title of it. So they are complaining.
I realize I can't prove this 100% but I would say it is a strong theory.
Dude your a loser, your lame... u sit around and post bad ridiculous things(that are clearly untrue and no one cares about your opinion..)about playstation 3.. Get a life Douchebag, this probally is ur life...u do know that Xbox has already been out 2 years and only sold 11 million consoles right?? right?!? U do KNOW all the biggest games have already came out on Xbox and it's still barely sold over 10 million?? RIGHT? LMAO, ur pathetic PS3 will crush Xbox by 10 of millions of consoles and I'm going to laugh in your face....very soon. HAHAHAHAHA I'M NOT A FANBOY BUT THIS THREAD IS F#CKING GAY AS HELL. BLOODMASK IS A DESPERATE, 10 YEAR OLD SH!TBOX FANBOY AND HAS NO CLUE WHATS GOING ON IN THE REAL WORLD. They are only winning by 6 MILLION consoles and have been out more than a year longer with biggest games being released.... HAAA. PS3 has hardly released anything yet.. YOU'RE A DOUCHE!
i just rented it yesterday and i already beat it. 5 hours;
so much for boo-ray making the games longer. and whats even worst is the fighting is boring and just the same 3 guys over and over and over.
if any one hasn't played i'll explain, go to one room, kill 10 guys go to next room kill 15 guys go to the next room kill 12 guys, rinse and repeat for 5 hours. and the boss battles are WAY to long and point less.
5/10 and thats being nice cuz the visuals are good if you look past the frame rate issues.
I love how the completion time is coming down. I would bet you never played it because that dont sound like heavenly sword to me. What about the shooting parts, and the parts where you have to faff around shooting shields at levers etc.
The way it is going xbox owners will be nailing this game in 20 minutes by next week.
Just a damn trolling fanboy like always.
I am with devilsadvocate. I don't believe you GunPants. How comes, that if the boss battles are too long and boring, and you can beat the game in 5 hours?
I bet, the net time is more then that, because there is no fast run thru mode. You have to beat up the crowd, you can't just ignore them. A 5 hour play sound like a run thru to me, IMO. If you don't want to play a game to enjoy but want to finish it as quick as possible, what's the point in playing at all ?
The environment is amazing, the shooting elements add a nice variety, the dialog cut scenes unique. How's that a 5/10 ?
nough said. go play Halo.
dude first of all stop with all your lieing because one.. the game is more than 5hours even without dieing and you're the only xbot fanboy that i've heard that said it was lame..even your other fellow xbot boys agreed it's an awesome game so stop trying to cover up and not give credit where it's due. If you knew anything you would know that started making this game 4YEARS ago meaning they didnt even have the developer kits that are out now to help support them making this game into a 50gig game so do your research before you try to flame a game you have no idea about you idiot...PS3 rocks FTW
I read the summary that was written at the top of the page and responded to that. I am not complaining, I am stating an opinion. Why would I listen to a long podcast on a 360 site when I can just read the summary?
i'm not a total noob it doesn't take me very long to get thought such a short game. btw ya the shooting parts were OK probly the best parts. and don't tell me you thought the bounce the shield around [email protected]
ya the play time is not the biggest issue its the fact that it wasn't that fun while playing.
if this game was on 360 you sony guys would be saying how bad it is and saying its short cuz of the DVD well whats your excuse now that the 360 has great games like bioshock and ps3 gets this and warhawk. probly could put both those games on 1 DVD.
The combat system is deep and visceral, the cutscenes are amazing, and really the only gripe that I've seen from reviewers is that the shooting sequences weren't very deep compared to the combat, and that the game can be beaten in 8 hours (10 for novices).
You remind me of EliteGamer when he said "I have Motorstorm. It's an OK game. Kind of fun, but it's too short. I beat it in 2 hours, so it's definitely a 7 for me." Of course, he thought there were only 8 races in the game, not 40 (and they are LONG races). You can't even beat the game unless you start getting first place in every race, which is damn hard after Tickets 10 and 11.
Seriously. Stop trying to fool us.
yea cause bioshock was soooo long right..i rented bioshock because for mostly all FPS are short and there was no exception for this one..yea it's long if you do all the side missions which nobody ever does. My roommate and I both beat this game in no more than 10hours..Gears of War beat in 7-8hours and the story was hella dumb but yet it got good ratings hmm wonder why maybe because it was another shooter on the 360.When they start comparing the length of Gears to the length of halo 2 you know it's short. They only gave bioshock good ratings cause it another dumbass FPS along with 90% of all 360 games which i'm not buying another 360 game until they come out with a variety of different games like ME and LO and not just FPS. For right now i'll enjoy my HS and UT3 on my PS3 with FREE online play. PS3 rocks FTW
If that game would be on the 360, I'd would give a rats a$$, because I do not comment on 360 games. And I am sure, there are a ton of good 360 games out there.
CUZ WE ALL KNOW U SONY DOGS NEVER POST ARTICLES FROM YOUR PLAYSTATION POLESMOKER WEBSITES LOLOLOL HHAHAHAA SOO TRUE. LOLOLOOLOL. dipshit.
http://en.wikipedia.org/wik... in case you needs some help.
Yeah. Ok. Hes right. We should listen to this podcast in the ps3 section because its VERY informative *end sarcasm* Why the hell would someone bother listen to a 360 only site about the ps3 as if its informative in any sort. Its a shame to see just exactly how far fanboys will go.
Like this is news in any sort of way.....
You only prove me right. How do you know this isn't news if you didn't even listen to it.
Disagree button to the bottom right.
I know where the disagree button is. Funny how you call others hypocrites, but fail to address how your dumbass has been in here trolling with anti-ps3/holy 360 crap since forever now.
why is it you seem in love with gayness? Btw i wont hit disagree. Ignore works better u homo phobe sally...i would love to hear about all the AAA exclusives the 360 has had this last year!!! Please enlighten me......in fact just tell me what exclusives they have had since Gears.....i would really like to see this awesome list of games....i will check back at half time....
Its funny ppl ask if the PS3 can make up lost ground when its not even a year into its life!! I guess MS did the right thing in all their eyes in making a product that by all acounts is the most faulty consumer electronic in the history of such things. Thats why i see many of them buying more then one 360.....
The person that said he beat HS in 5 hours is a total fony. I killed hundreds of ppl in one room, that room being the fianl battle field. I didnt get stuck on many parts of HS and it took me 7 hours...My buddy beat Bio Shock in two days....13 hours.....If we want to talk about rentals bio shock is right there with HS....sorry but its true
btw bloodmask you prove daily ur looking for bs on websites that are by name bias....They discuss what went wrong and if Sony can make up lost ground!!! lol all this on a 360 podcast
what a tool bag
and btw i spent maybe 10min bouncing sheilds to open doors and its something u will never see on a 360. 6axis was put to good use and it slowed down the game at just the right times.
:) I had to get used to it. But then, on that one gate (2nd chapter) where you have to "pillars" left and right to open the door, I killed a whole battery of enemies from one side shooting shields across. That was kind a, eh, unique and experimental, but a lot of fun :) (not that you have to do it this way, you could climb up there and mash 'em).
arrogant is telling ppl you have a 3% fail rate when in fact u know its more like 33%
or maybe u can look at the Anti-trust lawsuits as being brought on by very arrogant ppl..
There are a lot of hypocrites on here. Everyone of you including me has wrote something negative about another system in your comment sections.
And given the way sony devs works despite a game bombing a second version will be made...that too will bomb.
360 devs do the same thing-what about viva pinata 2?
i like how ur avitar pionts towards your own name
Why was an 'article' from a 360 fansite voicing their opinion about the PS3 posted as news?!
Geez, you xbots are sad...don't you have anything better to do?
Yes like ignoring fools like u .
i can only listen to your uninformed bs for so long. and why do you seem to always come into ps3 threads only to start sh1t? you have been ignored.
their xbox 360 is at a repair shop or they got bored of playin gears and bioshock all day
Look at how the sony fanboys get so defensive. You can see that they are starting to fall apart. Heavenly Sword is a rental at best for only a 6-7 hour game. Stop trying to add more hours to it. And Gears of War is 8-10 hours and Bioshock is around 15 hours. Don't come on here trying to say "I beat Gears in 4 hours." You sony fanboys are pathetic, you go from laughing at Gears for 8-10 hours and now you say it's okay to have 7 hours of gameplay.
You can start to see that the sony boys are losing hope.
Iv been playing HS for 8 hours and still not beat it, I think it will take me at least 10 hours so I suppose it depends on the person playing it.
I like how you all come here and attack the PS3. Its a great system and it cannot be denied. You all try and find fault with the PS3 and its games.. FFS GET A LIFE!!!! You say we are loosing hope? you are mistaken my friend, the PS3 life is just beginning!
Just accept that the PS3 has great games as does the 360.
Demise LOL. Not a chance. 5million consoles shipped/sold is far from Demise. I suggest you look at what the 360 had sold 8 months after release, the PS3 is on par with that but if you take into account that the PS3 has was not released in Europe until March then I would safly say that the PS3 has surpassed 360 sales on the same timescale.
Lair, I cannot comment as I still have not played it.
Heavenly Sword on the other hand is an awesome game. It may not be a AAA but it still freaking rocks.
DeZimatoR the same reason why 360 Blogs are posted about the Red Ring Of Death. To start a flame war it is as simple as that & Lightning the same can be said about you Sony Droids & leaving a System alone it works both ways not one but we all know that is never going to happen.
the problem with your belief is simple: the RROD is a fact. and reporting facts is not starting a flame war. it's just relaying factual info. this article is nothing more than very subjective opinions from followers of microsoft.
did u read anything ppl have said....or did u just make up your own mind b4 sharing your insight in the PS3 and its owners? Where did someone say Gears (on this thread) was short and therefor a waste of money?
If HS is a rental at 7 hours then so is Bio Shock at 13! Both can be beat in a day or two!
I know anyone that has played HS or Warhawk or RFOM have not lost hope. We understand it takes time for a system to get games and we have had a glimpse into what the games will be like on a PS3.
I had u on ignore and you proved to me its where you belong...
peace little kid
make sure mommy cuts the crust of ur sandwich
defending a 7 hour game with one that is almost double its size doesnt make your argument any stronger....in fact it makes you look like a child supporting his favorite game..which also nullifys your asking how old first knight it. ..you give someone the choice of paying for the short game or the longer one, I myself would pick bioshock if i owned both systems.....graphics are nice on hs but face it..we are paying too much for games these days and 7-8 hours wont cut it.
i beat resistance in jan. but am still playing it today. it's that good. still playing motorstorm and ninja gaiden sigma as well. for 10 months in, the ps3 is doing pretty good.
you won't win any money this month with crappy articles.
general mart would say,"this article is not good enough to bash ps3.""you need to do better my lieutenants."
all these ps3 games coming out are proving you wrong bloodmask about cell.seems optimized for games to me.you and people like you can't stop the train that is coming your way.halo3 will sell well,but it won't help system sales skyrocket.casuals won't get it.
soon,you wil be telling us why microsoft doesn't have to be worried about being in second place when nintendo passes them.because their(MS) 2008 lineup will put them back on top............um.....yeah.... .
demise.......when sony sold 102 million ps1s(and making profit on psn with ps1 games).sold 119+ ps2s(and making profit) and climbing.sells 25+ million psps(and making profit) in a nintendo controlled portable market when all other portables have failed.10 months and the fanboys are fearing "100 million threepeat."
........................mag lev super train..................
But the Wii is in a different category then the xbox and ps3...this next gen war is between the next gen...dont you agree or since the wii is beating the xbox you decide it is on par with both systems? The cheaper console will always win out...when the ps3 is 400 bucks as rumors state there will be a change in sales im sure. But until then the Wii will dominate.
The xbox 360 has been out for 2 years and only sold 11 million consoles.
So your going to compare the ps3 numbers to the xbox. The ps3 has been out for almost a year now and is just now hitting 4 million. so on average it should be around 8 million consoles in 2 years. Hell i'll even give them an extra million because i'm feeling generous. So 9 million consoles.
Looks like your down 2 million buddy. Not to mention you can get an xbox 360 for 279 and still have to pay 500 for a ps3. Well that sucks.
I own both consoles, and to be quite honest the ps3 has potential, it's just been priced way to high, doesn't have a very good online feel, and well throws a bunch of hipe into the air and doesn't deliver on much of it at all.
But then again the ps3 hasn't broken on me like the 360 did, although it only broke once, and has been perfect from that point forward. (i bought the first generation of them, about 5 days after the launch)
how about this:
xbox out 2 years 11mil sold - most people here seem to have at least 2 so we will go with xbox owned - not 11mil more likely 7 to 8 mil. (roughly 7 mil live subscribers). Had NO COMPETITION for one year. Already overtaken by wii.
Ps3 out less than a year - 4-5 mil sold - less than 1% error rate so lets say 4-5 mil owned as most dont need a back up just in case.
So in two years it would be around 9-10 mil sold/owned and that is WITH competing against wii AND xbox.
ps3 all the way dumbfocka!!
Uuuuuuuuuuuuum, what? Are you this stupid all the time or just on here?
EDIT: apology accepted. despite what you might think I am an adult. Lets just stick to games yes? That is why we are all here. Just for the record though I also think you are a twat.
*Edit* That was a low blow on my part. I apologize Devil. I still think ur stup*d tho.
Sorry Trane, I have you on ignore! :p
You don't speak no damn facts. The only fact in anything related to you is you being a dumbassed 360 devotee who trolls in the ps3 news area for no apparent reason as if anyone gives two Sh!ts on what some xbot has to say about why he chose the 360.
You've got the holy360/anti-ps3 manifesto in your profile and everything. You call yourself the 360 fanboy people love to hate and consider yourself in some sort of troupe along with the other dumbasses (mart, bloodmask, Pog, bladestar, included)
And then to bring someone's child into it, thats pushing fanboyism to a whole different level. You should be proud of yourself. Can't get anymore "asshole" than that.
Edit: IF you have me on ignore, then quit pressing "show" then. Its obvious that you did if you replied you dumbass. And for the record, my statement wasn't to you. It was "about" you. jesus fanboys these days have gotten retarded.
Are you a nonce or something? why bring peoples children into this. You are one sick puppy man. Maybe ur username should be "FIRSTKNIGHTISPENTWITHABO Y"
the PUBLIC view nintendo wii as next gen.and also,360 fanboys were using wii numbers against ps3.even saying why not buy wii and a 360.it's the same price as one ps3.there were wii60 avatars and microsoft talking about gamers buying both.articles showing wii outselling ps3 3:1,4:1,etc.
but now that wii is about to pass 360,now it doesn't matter.now "wii" don't want to have "wii60."now "wii" don't care about wii numbers.now "wii" are scared of now being in second place.amazing how there are double standards.
here's an interesting fact:how is it that microsoft can "SHIP" 10 million systems before dec. 31 2006,but then can barely "SHIP" 1.6 million by june 30 2007?what happened to all that momentum?it should be 15 million or more.but microsoft themselves downgraded their projections from 13-15 to 12.but missed it by 400,000.
as for ps3,how many dummies think ps3 will still be $600 dollars for 5 years?how many think it won't be $399 or less by christmas 2008?such idiots on here.
secondly,sony "shipped 5.5 million ps3s by march 31 2007.how many still think they haven't shipped more?or sold more since then?sony plans on shipping 11 million by the end of the year.and 14 million by march of 2008.it's not impossible.
and kenny,your system should never break.and two,why has microsoft not told you what's wrong with it?3 year warranty is just to keep the system alive for 5 years without class action lawsuits or recalls.
but they still didn't say why it broke.or is it endemic(look it up).
.................mag lev super train................
Heavenly sword sucks...
I bet i'll get 16 disagrees...maybe more
"Two highly anticipated PS3 games have been released, Heavenly Sword and Lair, and to the surprise of many, only one scored decent while the other BOMBED."
To anyone that is excited about Devil May we please give you the same game for the fourth time now Cry, you are stupid, plain and simple, just dumb to no end. How many of these games can you play before you guys figure out they are all the same. It's like people are LITERALLY in love with this game and I mean that, in LOVE with this series. The only things that change about this game is the weapons. People say no way there are new characters in every game, yeah well guess what, every new character in every DMC game plays exactly like Dante so what the hell is the point of having them? They get different weapons that functions in the exact same way as Dantes does, you might as well just play with Dante. The combat is stupid beyond belief. Slash shoot and jump, thats its. All those styles are nothing more than aesthetics. They have no real function. You don't need trickster to dodge because jumping out of the way of attacks works just fine, gunslinger is pointless because you can shoot your way through the game regardless. The story is so stupid it makes me angry. Why don't they go more into Dantes history or more about Sparda give something solid instead of retelling the same story over and over, demons ares being bad trying to take over the world now lets kill them. Dumb, Dumb, Dumb. Now you robots are excited because the new game has Mr. Fantastic with guns, wow big change. Dumb.
ps3 is like having a theater with every toy, bell and whistle. but no plug in.
What a moronic podcast!
I can get more insightful speech listening to my toilet flushing.
A pair of childish hosts with absolutely no grasp on how the industry works, only turning hearsay into ultimate truths without pretty much any solid argument backing them up.
The internet is full of crap, and this is a prime example of it.
I beat heavenly sword in 6 hours, and had 75% of the little awards, freaking AWSOME game but wish I would have rented it, traded it in for 42.00 yesterday...guess I only paid 20.00 to rent the game for a day! I collect 360 games but only keep PS3 games that have replayability (Resistence, Motorstorm, etc.) that are exclusives. on the other hand I keep all 360 games that are good (45 atm)....btw PX360 is a great site with a ton of really good reviews!
