TOTAL FLAMEBAIT and misleading ps3 beats x360 in Japan and EU so who falls??? It is too early to predict something about the wii
Reported by: shmee
Nintendo as a company beats two game systems lol
sony, microsoft,and nintendo all posted profits by any standard they are all doing well
if u dont believe me then check http://www.n-europe.com/new...
Ok shmee, I reported your post as SPAM, just like you wanted.
Why is it that no one gets banned around here god daam start enforcing the daam rules and bann these annoying fanboy children.
Nintendo is doing exceptionally well, same goes for Microsoft(finally in the black). With Sony, it is obvious they are having problems with their PS3 gaming division with 2 price drops for PS3 within a year.
And as far as Shmee/Nasim is concerned he should have his IP banned from this site. He is abusing the reports system constantly...
Do you have any dam clue as to how many times the 360 dropped its price? Yeah, I didn't think so. The gaming department made a profit of after after the looses. They are still selling Ps3s at a loss, unlike Xbox360 / Wiis. Oh, and remember M$ put the 1.3 billion dollar repair / recall for RROD in their last physical years estimates.
So, in essence, Microsoft still hasn't made a dime. It just showed a "marginal" profit gain, from moving propitiatory spending to a different quarter.
If Microsoft has more money profit, I hope they invest some into their damn OS. I can't believe the much needed SP1 goes into Q1 2008...
Anyways, I think its deceptive for the title to say Nintendo the company and then list two console systems. Nintendo is doing very well, Microsoft has its damn monopoly on software (at least until Apple makes its OSX completely functional on other computers), and Sony posted a profit despite corporate restructuring costs and loss in their gaming division. All is well in the world of games for now.
how many price drops have there been for HD-DVD? Kinda unrelated.
As far as i'm concerned there was only really 1 price drop, the new skus have new prices, the old skus got dropped prices.
kinda the same with the 360
Admins are playing Ratchet & Clank.
ROFL but the admins give it a 7.5/10, cause a lot of action is happening in the game ;) Gamespot suxx
all next-gen systems lose money at the start! look it up. Xbox did, 360 has, PS3 is, PS2 did, PS1 did. They only time you make money from the start is when u dont make the effort to make a next-gen machine...Wii..for example
still a much smaller lose then what MS had done year in and year out since the launch of the xbox.
and since when do we trust CORP AMERICA 2 not cook the books. I wouldnt put it past em.
PS3 ppl shouldnt even comment on this thread. They should let the 360fanboys have the room to themselfs so they can have a nice little cirlde jerk.
If ppl did this we wouldnt get the flaimbait titles and the silly aruguments over something like this.
So are you saying that the Gamecube wasn't next gen for it's time? Because the Gamecube was more powerful than the PS2, yet Nintendo still sold Gamecubes at a profit right from the start.
Face it, Nintendo is smarter than your favorite game company and you're just being stupid.
"PS3 ppl shouldnt even comment on this thread. They should let the 360fanboys have the room to themselfs so they can have a nice little cirlde jerk"
Go ahead and gather your Playstation Polesmokers, boycott this forum, boycott this site, boycott the 360, boycott the Wii, it's all a big conspiracy huh?
Heaven forbid there was an ounce of fact in this article right? Bottom line is the PS3 is bleeding Sony dry. Nothing you can say will refute that fact. Bottom line is both the Wii and 360 each have over 7 million more consoles sold worldwide and that lead grows by the day. Bottom line is both Wii and 360 owners buy games. Go to this website and be educated.
The sales numbers dont lie. Even the past 2 weeks when the PS3 beat the 360 in Japan and EU they still lost ground to the 360 due to US sales. Instead of wasting your time in here asking PS3 fanboys to boycott articles or gang up on users and take away thier bubbles, perhaps that energy would be better spent on getting out from your moms basement and out into the real world and getting people to buy PS3 and PS3 games. Think about that.
I only need 1 bubble to stop your FUD and spread the truth!!!!!
I think it would be better if we organized people with good sense and decent writing skills together to take all the bubbles from the blind fanboys that only spew hate and propaganda.
I may not counter all of the Sony fanboys, which I have seen you stand up to and lose your bubbles (I lost one, myself, quoting an article calling the 65nm Cell obsolete), but, from me, you get bubbles!
Thank you for knowing what the heck you're talking about and not saying things one of the companies said months ago.
"Nintendo DS now stand at over 259 million units since it launched in 2004" i'll believe it when..... well i'll never believe it
"The earth is not flat. I'll never believe it..."
Some people live in "I reject your reality, and substitute it with my own" world.
Accept it. Nintendo sells more. Period.
I think the 259 million represents software, and not hardware, sales. With about 50 million DS systems sold worldwide, that translates roughly to 5 games per unit, which seems reasonable. Whoever edited that article should have noticed that, and corrected it.
what is this crap?
Both sides do the same thing, post good and report bad.
Sony boys do it, so do Xbox boys.
Get over it and quit crying.
Chill out drink a beer watch some Football.
MIA vs NYG next Wash vs New England.
don't watch the jets doing bad no jets no football and NYG is gonna demolish MIA and NE is gonna make wash never go back to face them again
Maybe next week, when the Colts show the world that the Pats aren't unbeatable. This week had no good matchups, and next week has the only game that matters...the game where Moss gets a broken rib...I mean the Pats have to come to Indy.
wow... I really wish people would relized the amount of crap on the wii outweigh the amount of good games.
wow... I really wish people would relized the amount of crap on the 360/PS3 outweigh the amount of good games.
I happen to prefer the games available to the Wii better, therefore, your statement albeit modified to present my view, also makes sense right?
Oh, by the way...
PC > PS3, 360, Wii.
Can you be a true gamer if you cannot appreciate what the Wii has to offer? Hardly. It is, after all, a differing experience from PS3 and X0.
I support the Xbox 360 ^_^
Does that make me Bloodmask,PoG,ect,ect.? too?
Seriously....You shouldn't accuse people without proof :|
that picture could use an OBJECTION! word, because all that counts in court is evidence
The Mods checked it out the first time the Sony fanboys tried to silence loyal 360 fans by making extra accounts and posting threads about their theories. Its the only way they know how to deal with others that dissagree(they must all be the same person).
Report his sh*t as spam.
Back to Football.
the "loyal 360 fans"...
it's almost like a damn cult
with people like shmee/nasim just trying too censor positive news for xbox..and anything negative for ps3...it gets too the point where this site loses credibility when the inmates run the asylum..and this is on both sides...
ultim8p00 you mean you never seen the zealots on this site that worship Sonys cult of "PlayB3yond"? They give themselves away by saying PlayB3yond after everything they say lol.
Bring the real numbers man, since the PS1 is out how much the big N lost since N64-Game Cube??? It is easy to go hi in stock market when you where so low. LOL.
The value of Nintendo's stock in comparison to Sony's? You should... LOL.
Hahaha oh my God I LAUGH at your stupidity. You just make sh!t up don't you? Do you even know anything about Nintendo's stocks?
Yeah we all know nintendo is ripping off costumers selling them a modified gba with two screens and a tweak game cube with a new name.
so ofcourse they are making trillions of of dollars to bad the games for their systems are for kids only and they all suck even mario and zelda are boring now.
How is that?
They didn't offer anything more than a humble gaming console. They didn't claim it to be the most advanced, with more connectivity, or better graphics. All they offered was a gaming console that would allow you to leave it on all day without catching on fire (try that with you PS3/360 and see what happens...), no nonsense DVD players, media this or that.
As far as I am concerned, they ones ripping people off are Sony for offering a console that after a year still has not shown all it's so-called potential. And on top of that, lowering the price thus making those who bought it when it came out at the higher price seem silly for not waiting until now to save the $100+ they would have saved had they waited.
If anything, Nintendo just keeps on adding value to the Wii with new features, such as USB keyboard compatibility, and a very nice functional web browser (which were never promised features of the console).
Forum -- one of the first delusional people to go on my ignore list.
Heh this is an opinion not an article.
Adriokor- Let the bubbles and agrees speak. Are you sure you're not the delusional one?
Forum- I agree. Nintendo's always been nice to its customers. It's got a very chill feel that I like more than the constant crossfire between PS3 and Xbox360. I don't suppose the fanboys of those two consoles have ever considered that they may be driving people away from their console by being such idiots themselves.
Shaka- I echo Forum's point on Nintendo's humility- they don't claim to be the best, they just state what they can bring to the table: innovation. I mean, the DS is so much more than a GBA. It can render good 3d, has Wifi internet with a good userbase, not to mention that the second screen is actually a touch screen (I don't suppose you knew that, did you?). It's no PSP as far as graphics, but Nintendo doesn't try to prop it up as one. Therefore, Nintendo is giving consumers just what it told them it would, and not ripping them off. Also, the Wii is no Gamecube- or even 2 gamecubes. You fanboys need to learn to keep up with the times. Gamecube+Duct Tape jokes are quite outdated. So let's recap: the Wii sports 24/7 Wifi connectivity, a message board, various channels for news, weather, and internet, a Virtual Store with old favorites, plus user-created content to come, as well as oh, I don't know, double-handed motion controls and a pointer. Gamecube has nothing on that list. 2 Gamecubes wouldn't have anything on that list. Get some common sense, I hear it's on sale just off the nearest cliff...
Everyone is suffering from sales
They'll make up for it later
I do know for a fact about how well the PS3 is doing the 40gb will only raise sales by 1000%.
MS might sale with that bundle on the premium this holiday season
Nintendo will just give people a huge bundle probably as well.
From where I stand I believe the PS3 is the better buy for this holiday season and the value of flawless titles being released in 2008 just for that console makes it a must have product.
Not to mention watching movies in the format of Blu-ray is slaughtering HD DVD in sales by a huge long shot.
Pretty soon the Xbox 360 won't have the HD DVD anymore.
Nintendo Wii is kicking your favorite console's ass. DEAL WITH IT!
x360 breaks so you have to pay to get it fix or buy another one.
last gen. cube is a rip off beacuase it should cost 100 the real value of the console the online service is terrible, they should atleast make it somewhat decent like xbox live, but pls no more charging its already pretty bad to see nintendo saying they are going to keep the annoying friend codes.
nintendo the worst the gaming industry has to offer even microsoft know more about it then kidtendo.
they don't force you on buying anything, if someone is ripping you off its you, yourself who is doing that.
i can bet on it you would kill and rape li'l children just to please Sony.
no one ever asked you to " jump in" , or " move you", your hate towards others is nothing but self centered bullcrap.
Of these flamebait 'news' articles. Does anyone know of a better gaming news hub?
that question is a joke!
fanboy illness is everywhere!!!
When will this ever end?
this site needs to shut down but the flaming is very amusing
Reading posted comments is pointless. The only thing I ever get to read are posts of people who are so strongly defending the product they own, that they don't even bother to give a fitting comment on the subject.
Be it in their favor or not.
It's so easy to criticize something you don't own or haven't tried. But please, do me a favor. Visit the nearest home-depot store, but a nice sturdy rope and hang yourself.
Nintendo has achieved success, to the suprise of many. Thanks to clever marketing they won the attention of hardcore gamers as well as the attention of beginners. I won't tell people that facts can't be denied. I, for one, don't really give a sh*t about sale numbers, but I just wish people would respect Nintendo's success.
And it's okay..
You can always sell your Xbox on ebay and buy a brand new Wii for the money you get for it. = )
You have to find the Wii in a store though. The Wii is more on ebay than the 360.
However, yes, you're right. People only want to defend the system they own, like it's a terrible, life altering mistake to get anything else.
I hate them with passion all blind tools still think they make decent games god have mercy on your poor souls.
fact of the matter kidtendo systems today are a
waste of money and time. facts!
"nintendo sucks now.
I hate them with passion all blind tools still think they make decent games"
You're a blind tool, but you seem to think they make terrible games.
Perhaps you should say blind Nintendo tools, since there are are so many blind tools on this site with different names and tools to different companies.
agree or disagree?
If not the same, then separated at birth at the pound.
He is a just a fake boy just like that tard from Sonydefenceforce.
I should hope that the Playstation 3 can get itself out of this one, this is REALLY bad news for Sony:
http://jbooth.blogspot.com/... Is the "PHONY" PLAYSTATION 3 ON ITS LAST LEGS? WILL IT BE PULLED FROM NORTH AMERICA?
No, but its a bad situation even worse than the first Xbox. It really sucks for them.
They need to be more competitive quickly, the only problem is: THEIR CONSOLE IS THE HARDEST TO DEVELOP GAMES FOR.
Oops. That means the exclusives it has are small, and 2008 is already looking hotter than ever with CONDEMNED 2, TOO HUMAN, SPLINTER CELL5 EXCLUSIVE, and GEARS OF WAR 2 plus FABLE 2 and NINJA GAIDEN 2.
Playstation 3 was a big mistake full of mistakes, I'll still have one anyway but they are really in last place for exclusives.
Well when you figure out a gimmick to sell Gamecubes for $250 you're bound to be rolling in mountains of money. Probably produced for $100 or less.
