A BBC report on gamers reaction on the news that Sony has delayed the PlayStation 3 launch in Europe to March 2007.
The add on comment from the Sony guy:
Says it all. Yeah get your hopes high, Sony will tear any dream apart. Like they did with the PS2 also. You'd all wish you'd bought the Dreamcast. That would have been a better competitor now with the DC2 against the 360
BBC says: "right now Sony is loosing"
Yes indeed. They're already for months and months and will stay in the corner the blows are coming like hitting a bleeding guy in FNR3 on my 360
Most of europe will get a xbox 360 this year - why because ps3 won,t be out till march plus europe loves soccer games and with PES and Fifa etc, Sony you make a very bad move.
Lets ask the experts rory says ??? all i saw was crying babies one of which didnt even know it was delayed!!! come on ppl stop whining, you dont think that sony know that its bad too but they have no choice, we all want better graphics ect but that means more data thus bigger media thus Blu-ray, they wanna give us want we want but its just gonna cost time, besides let the Americans have the first batch of ps3 they will be buggy, we Euros will get a better machine at launch
LOL.. Your just another dumb ass sony fanboy! I cant get over how blind to the truth you fools are.
SONY DONT GIVE A [email protected]
The problem is real bad because we have trying to tell the fan boys that since E3 05. They have more faith in Sony than the truth. Its really geting to the point where I pitty them like a hungry abandond child. If you like games you are a gamer if you like a console to the point of no return you are a fan boy. A fan boy is not a good look it is lame.
Laughing My ASS off!!!!
Come on, how stupid do you think we really are Sony!!!! You have done nothing but Lie ever since..... well that's all you've ever done. And you still expect us to believe that you will be able to even come close to 6 million!! You did just notice that you dropped your initial sales by over HALF!! Where are these extra couple of million units supposed to come from??? 6 million was the number you were struggling to meet before this bad news, and now you expect us to take your word on it. It's not like you can all of a sudden increase production can you??
All I gotta say is "F" YOU Sony!!! You lost a loyal customer and I'm sure you will be losing MANY, MANY more! I will Never buy anything with the Sony name on it ever again!!!
So many people are misled... sad, sad... he said he wants the PS3 because of better graphics (BS), better games (matter of personal opinion), and more online play (wtf?!?). Where has this kid been? the 360 has the online play! Ugh! People piss me off when they don't know what they are talking about.
No they piss you off when they are not xbox fanboys like you.
Sony are fu(king stupid, Really pi$$ed off with them right now, Im going to be getting a 360 at christmas and enjoy Next gen games instead of waiting until march!!!
Haha General it's really funny how you did turn around almost from the point of no return ;)
I say General will take this war to a good end haha
But I would be really, really, really surprised if Lametime would switch. But said that, I think he would even jump after Barbie Ken off the highest bridge in the world without a bungie cord.
General when are you going to get your 360?
Why would i get a lamebox 1.5 when i can get a ps3 on november 17 [email protected]
Because you can't. And General isn't living in USA. There are only 400k available in USA, IF they reach their promise this time. They never have before so please just shut up.
360 had 700k for USA alone and had monts of shortages. Now PS has about half of that (I bet they may be glad to reach 350k to get out). So what you think, only reserved ones will be handed out. If already those people will get them.
So no. You're wrong. And in Europe everyone now is looking for a 360. Not only because Sony promised us a world wide launch and they underdeliver AGAIN, no also because soccer, what we love, is only possible on 360 for the coming year.
Not only that but all those nice games including Assassins Creed on 360. No more reason to wait on the [email protected]
I take General's pro-PS3 rants and his newer anti-PS3 rants with a huge bag of salt. Both mean absolutely nothing. Enjoy a 360 if you want, if you want to wait for a PS3 then do so. Who cares. I'm in the US and will be hard pressed to find a PS3 before this news or after this news so it doesn't affect me that much. I'll still be trying to get one, a 360 is just not something that I'm that interested in. I'll be waiting until it's dropped to less than $200 to get one, but that is just me. Others may feel that it is worth the $399, I don't.
who the f**k are you to tell me im not getting a ps3 lol.i will get mine at launch moron.And xbox 360 had 326k units at lauch in the US you idiot where did you pull 700k from your @ss?Now STFU [email protected]
I have a feeling we will be seeing this news report again in about 6 months, PS3 will almost certainly get delayed in Europe again as Sony wants to try and flood the market in USA and Japan before they think about Europe, just like they did with the PSP! My guess, PS3 Europe launch on October 20th 2007 with GTA4 as a launch title!
Lol you're still saying what Ken Kutagari said "Xbox 1.5", Barbie Ken talks trash and hes an asshole i hate his guts, shows how lame you are Gametime..
Why did you use the term barbie ken when the mart uses the same thing or are you another one of the marts user names lol.Show how lame you are.
Lametime, you're the only one using different accounts like you once started on the banned ssj04 account.
We all know you man. I guess my findings, like Barbie Ken are populair. Unlike the PSZero
haha you still think i am sjj04 lol you truely are a [email protected]
Americans wont exactly care about us europeans this november aslong as they have their PS3 to play on, You guys dont know how bad it is for us Europeans, Sony are fu(kers and just lie all the damn time!
Actually it's almost to cry about...
"Sony has run out of PS3 test kits to give to developers. Since the announcement of the European launch being delayed, nobody has any idea what's going to happen with the PS3 port of F.E.A.R... specially since we only have the one PS3. And it's a devkit. In case you haven't seen those things, they sound like giant vacuum cleaners. They're reportedly ridiculously complicated to use, specially when upgrading the firmware. It has just the one controller, and it's not even the proper PS3 one even! It doesn't have those "innovative" changes from the PS3 controller, it's just a Dual Shock 2 with a USB Mini port. "
Uhmm Gametime i'm not TheMART you prick.
ill be getting a ps3 in summer 2007 or earlier, but for now i have nothing to do with the ps3.
Sony talks bullshhiitt and all of the true sony fans eat it up.
Gametime you suck at comebacks you always repeat what another says for example, "Shows how lame you are"... and i've seen several others a while back..
Bad taste you suck at comebacks you always repeat what another says for example, "Barbie Ken"... and i've seen several others a while back..
What the hell!!! 360 is well worth the money. Sony fanboys are just ignorant asses. It is definitely not a Xbox 1.5. MS is definitley the masters in online gaming and Xbox Live is the standard in online play. Add the media center features to the system and it becomes the main piece on your entertainment setup. I have gotten more use out of the 360 than any console I have ever owned and I have a PS2 also. PS3 will be a great system when it comes out but there is no reason to pay the premium for it when the 360 is just as capable and has more feature that you will use in years to come. Blu-ray is having serious problems and to incorporate it in the PS3 before the high-definition dvd war is won is a big mistake. I like the fact that MS will give me an option to purchase a HD-Dvd drive as an add-on. There is no value for me to buy a PS3 especially the exclusive games are now going cross platform.
That's really sad Gametime, go try to make some friends... oh wait no you just gonna repeat everything i say..
I am getting a 360 at christmas, Looking forward to playing on Xbox live with ya's, Could you name me afew games what I should get?
Lemme see a few of these games are old now, but definetly COD2, FNR3, PGR3, Dead Rising, Saints row, Test Drive, Oblivion, GRAW (DEFINETLY GRAW), and Madden 07, Gears of war (if ur getting it for x-mas) and maybe Prey, it's amazing, yet so short, and maybe NHL 07, the demos out I need to go DL it
must of taken you long to think of that Gametime eh?... pathetic...
yeah just read more news related to sony lol , just incase sony droids missed it here it is again lol :)
I also just read that stock is falling on the company because of yesterdays news.
I can only compare what you guys are going through right now to going to the bathroom to take a #2 to the 10 power and finding out there is no TP. That just sucks real bad. To bad you guys are fan boys because if you were a gamer you would not be making fools of your self right now. Its O.K. to get your next gen fix on the 360. I mean come on you have been playing the PS2 for 6 years now and it was never as that good. So get over it you guys act like you have been eating steak and every one else is eating cat food. Get your FREAKING noses out of the air and maybe you can see what is in front of you.
Sony fan boys are suck up B!T(h's. Dont you hate that girl or boy who thinks they are all that and have more flaws than a broken egg. You guys are so silly.
I am glad I am getting a 360 at launch now, Just bought the latest Xbox 360 official magazine and wow, The games look amazing, Really cant wait to play on my Xbox 360 at christmas :D
Xbox Blows. PS3 Will Rule on!@ ahahah
Anything that has the PS3 in it is consider spam. lol
PS3 doesn't have better graphics or games. Its a matter of opinion. Sony has nothing on Xbox live. Poor little brit is very much misled. I dont blame him though since Sony spreads alot og Bullsh!t.
Xbox blows sony out the water. I cant beleive you'll still defend sony even after all this. You are truly blind
You are truly blind defending a mediocre console lol..lol!
I though you were this know it all, dev. school, gamers cant hack it, smart guy. But in the end you turned out to be a pittyfull fan boy blinded by hate for microsft and xbox. You have lost respect points big time bro.
your PS2ers, so weak, so sorry, so ignorant, so so lame.
now they are out of dev kits to give to the developers.
how the article ends with a bunch of HD-DVD advertisements. Kotaku isn't exactly known for being reliable. They're pretty much up their with the Inquirer.
Kikizo tends to get confused with Kotaku, but is actually a good site. A lot of the gameplay videos i find actually originate from there.
It looks like the article was written in response to the blue laser diode shortage, which does affect dev kits (since they have blu-ray burners built in), but definitely not THAT much. 10,000+ dev kits vs. 500,000 launch units? It's hard to say.
Remember the lie to slow 360 momentum that the ps3 will be released spring 2006. They said the same lie when dreamcast then "delayed" it a year later. If its about the games and getting something for your money get off the sony downs parade, more and more old ps2 developers are.
Just to be clear on this. It's North America, not only USA. Meaning Canada as well? 400k split to two counters and 100k for one country. 200k for US, 200k for canucks. Maybe less. You honestly think you're not going to be buying your ps3 on ebay this November for an outrageous price? The day preorders are allowed they will be gone, sold out. ALL OF THEM (like star wars episode 3 tickets.). You'll be lucky to even log into the page. Servers will crash and garbage like that. It happens. Internet ain't perfect. Then you have to go to the stores and get the console. Remember 360 launch? CHAOS! Hah. Some stores might cancel the sales because of ongoing ruckus, people getting hurt. Money is being thrown down the drain.
You sure it won't happen this time? 200k, at least 150k will be sold online through preorders. That leaves at least 50k for stores. Double that number if all 400k goes to US. That’s 100k of consoles for a few states. At least. Massive line ups. There are a lot of wallmarts out thee. A lot of best buys. A lot of… electronic stores. Haha. 100 consoles per store will work for 1000 stores. For all 400k, you’ll have 1000 stores with 400 consoles. Or 500 stores with 800 consoles (more reasonable). With America having at least 3 million hardcore fans. You won’t get your hands on that ps3 for a long long while. You think you’re a hardcore fan? Think again.
That’s a best case scenario with all consoles going straight to US. If you’re going to split with Canada, hehe, fubar.
20,000 stores with 20 each. Thats about how it averaged out for the 360 launch. Just pare off stores to allow for any online orders that are allowed. Some people with preorders waited till nearly March to get them, because the stores oversold the supply.
Yikes. That's messy.
I fu**ing hate BBC news. Every time something xbox 360 related comes up, they play it down as much as possible. Before the Xbox 360 launched they did an hour long report of a guy being shown around by MS representatives and being given an early look at the 360, and all he did was complain about it.
Now bad news about the PS3, and they make sure they only give the interviews where people say the PS3 is better. One guy to say the 360 is better and he happens to sound like he doesn't know what the f**k he's talking about.
How exactly do they benefit from helping Sony, I have no idea.
1. Is ps3 out yet?
2. Is it possible to get a tour of the ps3 right now? (games/movies/controls/etc?)
3. Don’t all ps3 fan boys say ps3 is the bestest console ever? Even on here. Sure it may not sound like being pretentious and such because you're reading it, but in all honestly all fan boys are alike.
4. Are there any actual good news about the ps3 available?
Basically you hate BBC because they're doing their job. I'm sure before PS3 comes out they'll get a chance or two to discuss it in length. Right now, there's nothing, medium wise, available for the ps3 to be actually discussed.
Don't hate BBC for not supporting Sony. Hate Sony for giving them nothing to support.
You misunderstand. I hate BBC news for downplaying 360 news and overplaying everything PS3 related. I'm saying they take every chance they can to insult the 360, but when a golden opportunity comes up to point out a flaw in the PS3 they still focus on people saying how good the PS3 is.
do you think they will get any
