It's technically been 3 years for the PS3. The first two years was an uphill struggle for the PS3. It wasn't till the Slim that it really started to pick up steam and establish itself as a true contender this generation.

tehpees32591d ago

huh? I thought MGS4 made it pick up steam

AdmiralSnake2591d ago (Edited 2591d ago )

MGS4 was basically the savior for the PS3. Anybody who disagree with that needs to warp back in time to the era where the PS3 didn't have many games or exclusives to push sales.

He is somewhat right though the Slim did help establish the PS3, but to call the PS3 not a contender before then is pretty hilarious lol.


Uncharted 2 didn't move as many consoles as MGS4 did lmfao. Also MGS4 sold way more then people predicted back then. Also when Sony was losing all 3rd party support remember the rumors flying about MGS4 going to the Xbox 360 ?

You need to do your research bro because Uncharted 2 would've been too little to late lol.

I believe Metal Gear 4 sold almost 2mil copies in its first week alone I don't remember though. Uncharted 2 numbers didn't hit that at all least for a while lol.

Dude listen the point is if MGS4 went to the Xbox 360 that year Sony would be in trouble. Metal Gear Solid 4 helped save the Ps3 when Sony didn't have ANY EXCLUSIVES at the time. Uncharted 2 didn't get hyped until 2009 E3 LMFAOOO.

Go look at the PS3 sales June 12 2009 and tell me MGS4 didn't help LOL.

Orionsangel2591d ago

MGS4 helped a little bit, but I know for me and millions of others. We boycotted the PS3 because of how expensive it was, but when the much lower priced Slim came out. We lifted the boycott and finally accepted the PS3. The smartest move Sony ever made!

"MGS4 was basically the savior for the PS3. Anybody who disagree with that needs to warp back in time to the era where the PS3 didn't have many games or exclusives to push sales."

I disagree. If you could name ONE game that made the PS3 pick up steam it was Uncharted 2 because it was the first PS3 exclusive that appealed to a wide range of gamers and was heavily advertised.

MGS4 was for MGS fans just like GT5 was for GT fans. These games, while good in their own right, don't appeal to the mainstream...Uncharted 2 did.

@stealthdawg- I wasn't referring to sales, I was referring to the PS3's turn around as far as mainstream conciousness is concerned. From MY personal experiences and from what I've read from forums and threads across different gaming news sites across the web..Uncharted 2 CONVERTED more naysayers than ANY other PS3 exclusive to date.

The fact that MGS4 moved more consoles than Uncharted 2 only means that MGS fans from the PS1 and PS2 days bought a PS3 to play MGS4...duh.

I don't understand why your focusing on sales so much. By YOUR logic, Modern Warfare 2 was the game that turned things around for the PS3.

AdmiralSnake2591d ago (Edited 2591d ago )


Dude sales talk end of the day what is Mainstream apparently COD proves that. Judging from the SALES MGS4 and GT5 the 2 games you mentioned are mainstreamed period. Both sold over 5million copies GT5 surpassed Uncharted 2 in a couple of months.

If any game was to be establish Sony name Gran Turismo 5 would be that game.

When saint said an uphill struggle he was referring to sales obviously. Sony was dead last with NO games.

No by my Logic GT5 would be the game since it's Exclusive to the PS3. Metal Gear Solid is a mainstream game and is more known then Uncharted. For anybody who is into games to sit here and tell me Uncharted 2 is more Mainstream then MGS4 makes me laugh.

No Metal Gear Solid fans also were on the Xbox 360 and for them to experience the game they would need to buy the PS3 which helped MOVE consoles towards Sony. Which is why I said Sony couldn't afford to lose anymore 3rd party support at that time.

Metal Gear Solid 4 did more for the PS3 then you can imagine.

Uncharted 2 wasn't the first PS3 exclusive to do that. It was Metal Gear Solid 4 since that was the last chapter of one of the greatest characters in gaming history and his name is Solid Snake.

Here lets refer to Vgchartz since thats the only damn website I can find the article of what MGS4 did for the PS3 that year lol

I don't know why people are in a rush for new consoles. Consoles just became some what affordable lol and now people want new beefed up even more expensive consoles ? I'm quite happy with this generation.

The only thing I see next Gen bringing is better online and more features to enhance online gaming as a whole.

Dart892591d ago (Edited 2591d ago )

Exactly okay for all the people who keep saying we need new consoles, now do you guys have the money to lend the rest of us to buy a new console cuz i'm pretty sure many people don't have the money right now.I'm fine with the current consoles.

AdmiralSnake2591d ago

Yeah I'm thinking the same exact thing lol. Didn't the Media bash Sony constantly for not dropping the price of the PS3 when it was 400 dollars ?

Now we have people demanding New consoles ? Wow you hear something new everyday lol.

Ducky2591d ago (Edited 2591d ago )

Many won't have the money when the next-gen arrives anyways.
What's your point?

The launch of a new console doesn't means an immediate shift. When the next-gen consoles launch, there'll still be game releases for the current-gen for an additional year or two.

Boon Tarkas2591d ago (Edited 2591d ago )

Haha someone disagreed with you being poor.

Relientk772591d ago (Edited 2591d ago )
