Sony is in stormy weather with their PS3. Many say the PS3 40GB with a lower price is positive. XBK says it's negative. Why? Three main reasons
i hate to say this...but theres a good chance a lot of those upcoming games for PS3 will be delayed ..tuning down the PS3 more
But! RROD RROD RROD RROD. is inevitable....... find a fix to that
nope, my launch 360 is doing just fine try again
Where's the NEWS???? This is from a XBOX web site... It's not signed. What kind of credit can you give to such an article... The best: Item 3: 3. MS won't sit on it's hands and will even offer more deals.... What does that prove? If it was a signed article, from a Microsoft big wig, then this point could be good, but it's only a comment from NOBODY. And yet, sadly, it's making the news on N4G again. If I want to read articles from NOBODY on a xbox web site, I'll visit those xbox web sites. I want news, I want facts. I don't want to read rants from NOBODY. This is sad because eventually, all the good sites, like N4G will close because of this.
N4G used to be a good site. Fanboys just got their little hearts broken when they saw the unmatched likes of Killzone 2, MGS4, Uncharted coming exclusively to the PS3 Edit: for all the morons below me, you have been on my ignore list for the longest while. Take all the bubbles u want, this place has gone to sh!t anyway.
The dividing line has been drawn. Everything to the left of that line is the xbox360 and xbox360 multiports. Everything to the right of that line is the PS3 and the loyal PS3 developers like Insomniac games. The following link is a Grand Turismo5 versus Real-life comparison quiz. Let's see how you do. Take the quiz and see the power of the PS3 rather than the smoke & mirrors of the xbox360. PS3 fans, you might want to try for yourself...enjoy the true next gen experience on the utlimate home theater console -- the PS3. Power of Green, you can take the quiz if you want, but you might get hurt when you see how good the PS3 really is from this quiz. I suggest you don't take it. I don't know how old you are, but I feel concern for you for some reason. In your other posts, you seem hurt. Unless you got all 14 answers on this quiz correct on the first try with 100% certainty, with absolutely no doubt at all while you were taking the exam, I don't think you should click disagree. Clicking disagree without passing this test with flying colors shows (to yourself) that you're untrustworthy, pigheaded, and easily fooled by microsoft's smoke and mirrors. You know who you are. Thank you. Now take the quiz. http://generationdreamteam.... PLAYB3YOND
that if your looking for a game machine, then don't buy a ps3. These little sony minions that have taken over N4G are borderline retarded. Proof is everywhere, from the gaming media all the way to national media, that the ps3 is nothing more than a sony in-house movie player masqueraiding as a game console. If people buy game consoles to play videogames, then the ps3 is absolutely in trouble.
The Xbox 360 heat issues have already been fixed, and we already were told. And we've been seeing the improved hardware for months now. Every Xbox 360 with a HDMI port (probably core, just without the header on the pins) has Motherboard Version 1.1. This Motherboard has fewer components, smaller components, new layout, and a new CPU/GPU mounting methodology. Look at this: http://www.mainstageclothin... "Having identified a number of factors which can cause general hardware failures indicated by three red flashing lights on the console, Microsoft has made improvements to the console and is enhancing its Xbox 360 warranty policy for existing and new customers." from http://www.microsoft.com/Pr... Also, read this loud and clear; Microsoft said at the Tokyo Game Show: "We have made all the improvements in our manufacturing process, All the consoles on the market have those improvements. http://www.gamepro.com/news... In the last 4 months, Sony has cut the price twice, and ripped the guts and capabilities out of the Playstation 3. What has happened for existing Xbox 360 owners? We got more value Internet TV, EU got two AAA games bundled with Pro / Elite, HD-DVD got more industry support and titles. Why dont you go and buy The Orange Box for your PS3? Oh, i forgot Sony delivered its messed up development environment in 2004 and -all- the developers are -still- unable to pull-close to what is being done week after week on the Xbox 360. Drop me a note via Windows LIVE Messenger onto my Xbox 360 and let me know how your folding @ home is coming. I'll be playing any of the 115 75%+ games that put the Playstation 3's sad collection of failure titles to shame. You can play LocoRoco (6.9 / 10) or Lair (5 / 10) Oh, and as I said, the RROD is FIXED. And, if you had a problem, MS gave back your repair charges. And, if you have a problem, MS fixes it for free. When I burnt through two Playstation 2s and 2 drives in the second PS2, did Sony give me a free repair? MS had a problem with a few early machines -- they've recovered very gracefully, fixed the problems, and all the while delivered better games, better entertainment features, and FAR FAR more extra value to Xbox 360 owners. Enjoy 3rd place, maybe Sony will sell you a PS4 at a discount for buying the PS3DO.
I can't get into the site can somebody copy and paste. THANKS.
Fanboy is banned? Here for you: http://www.powerofgreen.jus...
Huh Crimson, I would bet I see your name there http://www.crimson_wolf.jus... @ Power of Green, pretty strange, which browser are you using? What if you try FireFox?
"I can't get into the site can somebody copy and paste." I guess by now POG your pretty familiar with things that don't work.
I won't post the whole article, but I'll post the signature: " "
Holy crap Crimson, I must have laughed for 10 minutes.
Crimson i am still LMAO i have you a bubble, there needs to be some humor to all this BS
Yeah, you can pretty much trust a site called XboxKings to be an objective voice when it comes to the PS3. [es]
"Xbox kings" say the 40gb ps3 is a negative. for who? THEM.
That ps3 is almost as big as him!
O man that was so hilarious I just looked back up at the pic and started dieing laughing!!
wow, a lower price PS3 is a negative... especially since its less than the elite. I can see how that could be considered a negative for some people, namely MS.
U need to read the whole story the new 40GB will not play PS2 games at all U think this is a good thing.
umm... i know it doesnt play ps2 games, its really not that big of a deal, play the fricken ps2 game on your ps2...
Or, if you buy a Xbox 360 you can play all the original Xbox titles. It is called Backwards Compatibility. If someone has a PS2, Why would anyone possibly buy a $400 PS3? If they buy a Xbox 360, they get access to original Xbox games and the Xbox 360 which has the best library of next-gen games available now and into the future. This is a *terrible* move. Who is going to buy this?
Reliable source for news! I should make a site and bullshit about everything and get approved here.
Haha, and I was just posting on how n4g needs to stop posting useless negative press. I guess we can always count on xboxkings unbiased opinion. Say, if I start my own webpage and say that the 360 eats babies, can I submit this as news here?
You could try to read the reasons why. They're pretty legit you know
I really hope that was sarcastic. Either that or your under 12 years old and think the 360 is the second coming of Jesus.
They're not really legit me and my 12 year old friends made it all up. Hehehehehe
this article is gay like most of the homo loving halo 3 people in this site.. And the guy who wrote this needs to write better.. WTF! is this 2. The 399 pricepoint isn't still a price when the mass buys. What does that mean.. Ahhhh im retarded.. lol.. Re-word the sentence so it makes more sense moron.. I know what he is trying to say but this whole article is bogus..
you know what, the 40 gig is only 2 days away, we will see how much it sells. funny how they say it wont sell. if i recall right. ps3 with even less games with WORSE PRESS with a higher price sold. (499.99) this article is pointless, let the mart have his fun but we will see in three days. GOODBYE edit: THE MART. anything has valid points to you if its against the ps3 so nobody will ever listen to you. and your one of the top people who come on this site out of millions of people, YOU MY FRIEND NEED A GIRLFRIED..................... ..............................A ND IM NOT TALKING ABOUT YOUR 360....................BUT YOU MIGHT WANNA CHECK ON HER, SHE MIGHT BE GETTING HOT (IF YOU KNOW WHAT I MEAN.LOL)
This trash is hardly even worth commenting on. I want real news that will make a difference, like games and price cuts. Not fanboys bashing another system.
This is pretty stupid. PS3's got a pretty solid Christmas season coming with games to appease many fans of different genres. Rock Band, Assassin's Creed, Uncharted, Haze, Ratchet, Orange Box, and there are so many that I keep forgetting about. And photoshopping the PS3 to look enormous is really dumb.
the only valid point they have is the price point. It's true $400 still isn't a price where the masses buy. But the 360 isn't at that price point yet either... Confusing consumers? I've seen just as many potential consumers for the 360 and PS3 confused by the tech specs, capabilities and needs, or lack thereof for both consoles. Main one being the masses still think you need a HDTV to play games on both consoles... As for games, well, it hasn't even been a year yet and that's to be expected. When did the 360 get it's first AAA title? After about a year on the market when Gears dropped. That's a pointless case to make given that the PS3 is still in it's infancy... And just to say something about games. The 360 has just as many games worth owning as the PS3 right now. Matter of fact I think I have the exact same number of games for both consoles and ones been out nearly a year longer...
interesting article heh. I disagree with the notion that people will be put off by the lack of B/C though. Ps2 sales have only been outnumbered by 360 sales three or so times since its release, which goes to show you how many ps2's gamers are out there. I'm an example of a gamer like this. the 40 gb lack oF B/C doesn't bother me considering i have a ps2.
Will PS3 40 GB Sell? Answers; Short Answer: Yes. Long Answer: Yyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyy yyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyeeeeeeeeeeeeee eeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee eeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeesssssssss sssssssssssssssssssssssssssssss sssssssssssssssssssssssssss.

Xboxkings? need i say more?
TheMart changes his name back to TheMart I doubt he will stay with Xboxkings.
they should re name the site to xboxqueens.com or xboxqueers.com.. Who the hell would get news from these people? Anyway i think the 399 price tag is a freaking bargin..
I think you should change YOUR name to fakkhead, shiathead, forevervirginFTW or something like that, you 13 year old homophobic b!tch. Stop making retarded comments on how gay everything is, you are making a fakkin fool out of yourself. Oh and btw, the article is stupid, yes.
Two years ago the whole backwards compatibles xbox360 was all the rage according to the PS3-bots. Now Sony is releasing a PS3 with no backwards compatibility and you want to jump up and down and say “What a freaking bargain”. I’m not buying it. Until Sony comes out with some AAA exclusives, oh ya this is a bot site “EXCLUSIVES” I’m not wasting my money on Blue Ray. Oh and before you bring up HS and any other current “EXCLUSIVE” their not AAA material and please explain why those games are so short? I thought Blue Ray was the biggest media on the planet.
i dont see why people act like bc is a make or break feature for a new console. i dont pay 400 bucks or more on a new console to play old games.right now i only have a 360 but that will change in the future. this could be the best move sony can make. and for the record id rather have no bc than to only have emulation like the 360 i think its worthless.
The PS3 price drop will be a huge help for sales everwhere.
which camp is mad obsessed with conspiracy theories? lol..there ya go
I love how they list price as a negative. Especially when the 360 has a $349 and $449 SKU. Of course I could buy a Xbox Arcade and never be able to play COD4 unless I pony up for a HDD (never mind the fact that I need an HDD for gimped BC, but the 40GB PS3 eliminating it altogether is worse b/c it's Sony) I'll take BD movie playback over Forza 2 and Marvel Ult. Alliance ANY DAY!
No. Its worse because Xbox 360 has a better game library. And there is no reason to think that will change. LIVE, XBLM, XBLA, Messenger, Friends, Achievements, DLC, HD-Movies & TV, InternetTV, Windows Media Center, XNA Studio Express, XNA-Tube coming, and on and on. Even if the PS3 had the good fortune of the Xbox 360 library, they would still fall far short of the overall value of Xbox 360 which has been doing things the PS3 owner simply cannot. Oh, and blue ray is for Sony MPAA and Sony RIAA division -- enjoy your proprietary Sony lock-in. Next Christmas when your shopping for HD-DVD player, ask for a copy of a movie or music on UMD.
Lame post from a childish fanboy and his pathetic site
couldnt agree with you more dirtrider.. Why buy a 360 or ps3 to play old games.. I havent played a ps2 game since i got my ps3.. I havent played a xbox game since the 360..
Wtf, is this even news? This is just some fanboy trying to find anything he can to bash sony. His points aren't even valid. All I see is name calling and fanboyish comments. No AAA rated games? Didn't we already have an article that stated that AAA isn't rating? Anyway, lets try to post some actual news next time k thnx.
But resistance and warhawk are AAA games IMO at least, I was a big halo 1/2 fan but i honestly like those titles better especially warhawk
I like how the contributer of this story is none other than 'xboxkings' himself. You made a website with a pre-made layout and post worthless fanboy rantings that noone cares about. Go away.
the poster said, I don't agree. I will state what 90% of us are thinking; f?#@ the xbox kings. seems more like, PS3 builds up as xbox tunes down. nice try marty troll.
That tells you all you need to know. A$$hole fan boy site, made by 360 fan boys, for 360 fan boys, that have as much objectivity, and intelligence as 360 fan boys.
lol, and who is responding.. a PS Fangirl? Nice man. We`re just giving you the hottest news. Not allways in a positive or negative way. We give you something to think about or discusse about, and see.. it works.
Go and play Halo 3 with the rest of the teenagers and stop spreading lies and FUD on behalf of MicroScum. And you know the funny part of all the BS posted by tw4ts like you? Is that you KNOW the PS3 will be fine, and that the 360 won't win diddley. It's because of all the negative crap you girls have been trolling in PS3 sections since day 1. It shows you're worried. If your were not, you would STFU and play GEARS or HALO with the rest of the kids and stay out of speculation and lies.
PS3 will still be the most expensive. For a cheaper price you can get a 360 with 2 games which is a great deal. Not to mention the 360 starts at $280 and the PS3 is still $400. With the larger games library and cheaper entry point, not to mention backwards compatibility, 360 is looking like a better deal.
You need to spend another $100 on a 20GB HDD for BC, and at that you are only going to play 27% of the top 300 Xbox 1 games. So for $380 I can get that deal? For $20 more, I get BD playback and a PS3. Ok. Ok. So I could just get a Pro 360 for $350, plus 2 mediocre games. I'd still pay the extra $50 for BD playback.
There was only a handful of decent xbox games. When Blu ray wins do you think xbox 360 owners and ps2 owners are going to buy a standalone blu ray player or a PS3?
This from a website called xboxkings.com? No way!?!?!
Xboxkings saying negative remarks about the ps3? theres the suprise of the century
They knew some people would pick up on the new PS3 not having PS2 support...but most people would not care. Those that are hyping that it does not have bc support for the PS2 are actually hyping the whole PS3...Keep it up. That is a good thing. Sony will rule in the end..they always do....It will be $399 this christmas and then $299 next christmas...then $199 for christmas 2009....its all over by then...the only thing microsoft can do by 2009 is come out with a new xbox 720...but by then it will cost them so much...then will have to chose a next gen format, either HD-DVD or bluray..but remember by end of 2009 there will be 30-40 million PS3s and bluray will probably be dominate worldwide...and all sony has to do is release a new PSP2 to keep the hype of the playstation brand going...by then they will be able to get the Cell processor down to 45nm so they can put into the PSP2, plus 32 GB of flash memory will be next to nothing by then... Nintendo is in a good position too....they will milk the Wii for at least another 3 years....release a new nintendo ds by end of next year...Nintendo has nothing to worry about but they will never sale over 50 million wii consoles...HDTV will take over by next christmas 2008....people want more graphics, after the PS3 drops to $299 during christmas 2008...nobody will want a wii or an xbox 360...Final Fantasy 13 will sale more software and hardware than halo 3. People will camp out a week or more to get a copy of final fantasy 13. Sony is on a upward trend...while microsoft is on a downward trend... Also do not forget Sony has a good 2008 commming up... HOME MGS4 Killzone 2 Final Fantasy 13 Infamous Little Big Planet GT5 White Knight Story LA Noire Resistance Fall of Man 2 God of War 3
mm.. there`s just óne game on the list I like alot! God of War 3. I rest my case.
my God people will say just about anything just to bring the fanboy out of you and get your blood boiling but on another note those arnt very good reasons if your going to give 3 Big reason why its negative you better get some ones that PS3 owners will agree on not reasons that will have just only your camp cheering
Dam It can't get in. 4 dissagree's I wasn't trying ro start anything wow a tad rabid are we?, I'm assuming people are reading it so what does it hurt. Don't worry about it dude said its too long.
the PS3 will be raped this christmas by 360 and Wii, that is the bottem line. Heck we may even see the PS2 rape it, mark my words, your defense of Sony is futile. Try not to be such fanboys, think with your heads not your hearts, I know you guys love sony but come on people, they screwed up bad this gen, and they have lost 2007. Relax, it does not reflect bad on PS fans, everyone expected Sony to do well.
the only console getting raped this holiday season is the 360
its funny when 360 fans act like microsoft and the N-do are on the same side. There are no teams in a console war, I dont care for the wii probably cause its the only system i dont have and cant find but the fact is they may very well beat the 360's A$$ too. YOU 360 BOYS STILL DONT WIN!!!!!! I guess the only threat to 360 you guys see is the PS3 and that says a lot to me.
We've confirmed with the hospital that the PS3 suffered multiple gunshot wounds to the torso while leaving a Mike Tyson fight in Las Vegas. And at 11:13pm it arrived at the Mt. Sinai Hospital. Currently, the PS3 is on life support... The PS3 was riding in a brand new BMW with a big, bald, black man believed to be the Xbox 360 elite. The 360 is currently being questioned by the Las Vegas police but has not been named a suspect in the shooting. The PS3 just finished with and was getting ready to release his latest, entitled "40 gig" and many believed that this release was going to be a direct rival to the multiplatinum selling Xbox 360, and that is why this whole scenario is so suspicious. We'll keep you up to the minute as we receive the latest. BTW, They only allowed us to take one picture of the PS3 in its hospital room on life support. We pass the picture on to you. Click below.
Appreciate the creativeness, but that's not funny man. Bubbles anyway.
gheghe.. your funny man! Nice pic.
