PS3 Fifth Anniversary: The Five Worst Moments in PS3 History

PS Uni writes: "The PS3’s success didn’t come without its fair share of very public growing pains, so before we start talking about all of the good times we’ve had with the system it’s only fair that we air our grievances first. It’ll be like if we held Festivus at Kaz Hirai’s house.
So in the first of two parts, here are the five worst moments in PS3 history."

The story is too old to be commented.

I hate how people always bring up other OS. It was a neat feature and such but I'd say 99% of people who purchased PS3 never used it.

WonsAuto2470d ago

Yea, but the few that did use it were *awfully* loud about it losing it and resulted in several lawsuits (one involving GeoHot).

Vortex3D2470d ago

I agree few PS3 owners use OtherOS, but it is part of the PS3 features for the few who do use it.

1% of 1 million is 10 000, 1% of 47 million is 470 000!! Now tell me again nobody used it

Ummm... PS3 did not have that big of an install base when otherOS got "removed". Slim didn't have it to begin with you know?

Also the 1% people always talk about is not based on anything concrete. It's just there to try and point that there was little to no use for the feature (when in fact it does the opposite). The actual percentage might've been closer to 0.05% but it's a lot more troublesome to say it let alone write it so people use the easier 1% so yeah that's it.

I still remember the times I tried to install and use it. It was painfully slow to load and use.

The PS3 has definitely come a long way through

One would think that they would want to say 5 positive thing during an anniversary. But hey, maybe it's just me

WonsAuto2470d ago

I'm saving that for Thursday, the proper 5th anniversary of the system.

Common sense seems a luxury these days my friend.

That's the industry for you. That FFXIII went multi is a bigger issue than the game not being all that good to many.

Know you wont see an article like this for the 360.

Has there ever been a more petition-happy fanbase than the ps3 fanbase? Seriously, everytime a major 3rd party exclusive title went multiplat there was always some sort of petition and/or death threat

Studio-YaMi2470d ago (Edited 2470d ago )

Maybe stop trolling the "whole" fan-base by the work of some lunatic individuals,eh champ ?

Edit :
not to mention,it can go all around,for the other fan-bases !
