Microsoft boss Bill Gates is poised to claim bragging rights over Sony Chief Executive Howard Stringer in the battle of high-end video game systems - at least for this Christmas.
I think many a fan boy has already have claims for that.
i guess nintendo succeeded in letting the "other guys" battle it out.
The word is actually "feud", not "fued"
that the CEO's of global cooperations are better than childish fanboys...
eitherway, isnt about who makes more money that sales figures? i mean selling twice as many units but still being billions in the red cant be much of a bragging point.
Bill Gates wins no matter what. When one of these Sony goons gives $29 billion dolars to charity and medical reasearch in only 7 years then they will have something to be proud about. Until then, screw them. They contribute nothing to humanity.
what about [email protected]
I really like what Sony has done with the PS3
I wonder if we could get windows OS on that b!tch
How did this get approved with that terrible spelling? Fued? WTF?
Anything with Xbox and PS3 in the same heading, gets approved in less than 3 minutes regardless of spelling or etc.

High five Gates!
with all that XBox is still kicking the crap out of the PS3. Shows how far Sony has fallen in the console race.
CeruleanSky, you got pwned...lol
This flamewar round goes to Pdskep! On to round two, remeber the rules no hitting below the waist, do not bring your mothers in to this round, I want a good clean flamewar. Begin! *ding ding ding*
"And with all that XBox is still kicking the crap out of the PS3. Shows how far Sony has fallen in the console race"
No its not, worldwide it is not, its selling at pretty much the same pace as the 360 did for its 1st year and thats at a higher price and while having less games. So what's that say about the 360?
And p.s. basically all you's did was agree with all the points. You's all got owned!
.. it really must suck to live in your little brain.
BTW, when is Christmas in the world you live in ??
let's not be a fan boy here. 360 has proved that currently it's the console for hardcore gamers. i don't care how many it sold or how much more it sold over ps3. just look at software sales and attachment rate. in software it's outselling the mighty wii and by a huge margin. the ratio for games per console is 6-1, i don't think that any system has ever done that.
so do i think ps3 will outsell 360 in the long run? i honestly do. but i have both and i don't care. what i know for a fact is that until this moment the 360 is the system with the better games lineup and most active user base. 3rd party publishers are happy, i'm happy i have the systems(it's begining to show signs of death) and Microsoft is happy for thier position this gen.
I'm getting my PS3 soon as they include the DS3 in the deal. If every real/hardcore gamer does this things will just break even. Just think how much more peacefull things would be if PS3 fans just stop acting bias and bought a 360 and 360 fans did the same in return.
I'm going to do my part but things need to be they way I want them.
not everyone has the money for both systems and their games and very few people have the time to play all the good games on both systems. and most importantly is preference, some like sony and some like Microsoft so they'll buy one and not the other .
everybody takes sides. in politics, in games in sports in anything.
for example if you ever see me cheering Barcelona football team then you must be dreaming. and next week Madrid will be kicking your A$$ all over camp nou............. (goes to hide somewhere).
That comment gets mad respect from me
I am with Thammer on this one.
I love my hockey team, but I still give respect and credit where it is do toward the other teams. You can still be openminded but have a preference.
It is the "BLACK" or "WHITE" fanboys that kill me. Folks should really step into (or at least visit) the grey area. It really is a fantastic place to live in.
I flicked through some of Dantes posts, not bias at all
guns to modest system sales in 2 years means nothing in a ten year race.
sony said before their system launched:
"10 years billy g."we did it once(102 million/10 years),and about to do it again(120 million and rising/7-8 years)and we would be surprised if we didn't do it again.""oh by the way,our psp is the only known portable that has survived the 99% grip nintendo has had on the portable market.""no other portable has survived and sold millions but ours."
small battles won don't mean a thing when the war is being waged worldwide.-mag lev exclusive quote 2007
japan learned that launching a preemptive strike on pearl harbor didn't mean they would win.learn from this microsoft.warheads are coming your way in 2008-mag lev history lesson 2007
off topic.it's funny how the minions of microsoft have doubled their efforts in the last weeks of 2007.hate articles,group bashing of ps3 hits like uncharted.shame all of it won't matter to the public if they can't see your comments.
which is why ps3 sales are climbing.why bluray is destroying hd-dvd.gamers like sony4u-real deal-top gamer-elite gamer(same idiot),was singing the praises of hd-dvd,but it has lost EVERY week in 2007 to bluray.and ps3 is showing why it is THE NEXT GEN SYSTEM to get.be it by itself.or linked to psp.he bought a ps3 and shut his trap.
we have watched your comments change from
sony is arrogant
bluray will lose
motion control not being fun
1080p/larger HDD/hdmi not being necessary
ps3 has less memory
too many skus
japan doesn't matter
360 has better ports
(ALL CORRECTED AND WILL BE EXPANDED UPON)
to......."ps3 gamers don't buy enough games."when the system has only been out for a year.but sales of games has jumped from 1.2 from launch to 3.5 and climbing.
you're running out of excuses 360 fanboys.and losing the war of words.nintendo caught you so quick,you didn't even see it.but you claim"it's a fad."keep thinking that.now sony is preparing to launch its arsenal of warheads next year to reclaim its throne.
hope your ready.
mag lev........................... ...
are you in law school???? you sound like a lawyer there. well as i said i have both and it really doesn't matter to me. i've got the best of two worlds, I'm the master of ps3-360 universe, I'll be remembered as the one with two HD systems, I'm sick and tired of this sales war. I'm outa here.
Dude that was so nicely put I only wish I could give you a hundred bubbles for that comment and killer_trap is right you do sound like a lawyer, you should try to be one. Everything you've just said is true by mid next year you will so a really big change in world wide sells for SONY, it will be how NINTENDO took over in 2007. Next year we will have HOME and so many features that comes with it and on top of all that you will see a ton of games just about every month or every other month.
I feel almost sorry for those 360 fanboys because they were talking so much s1ht and next year they won't have anything to back them up anymore, but hey that is what you get for running your mouth for winning a war that just started. You can win a battle but if you do not win the whole war it means nothing.
360 has put out it's best long-awaited titles already. What's to look forward to? But look at PS3's forthcoming lineup. Holy Sh!t!!! Im SOLD!!! (oh wait, got one already...)
That was the most incoherent fanboy rant I have ever heard. The only part of that that was lawer-esque was the fact that it was a bunch of BS. I feel alittle sick in stomach for having bought a PS3 now that I finished Uncharted which was really great but thats it. My 360 stomps all over the PS3 as far as games are concerned. By this time last year I had 6 games that I actively played and PS3 has one game I liked and it doesnt have any replay value at all so all i do is watch video on it. Thats pretty fuggin sad for the mighty PS brand. If things dont pick up soon I am kicckin this thing out the ebay door. I literally laugh when I play the demos on PSN and how crap they are compared to 360 games.
Hey Mr. Law School .... (and yes, only because his BS level is on par with the lawyers out there)
Take your hate and swallow it. With any luck you will choke.
IS that Henry for your avitar
that dude is awesome
congrats on having both systems. Im planing on getting a Elite in the new year after they drop the price to 400bucks. I wont be paying for online thou and will be playing all the Single player games they have. When i get my Elite i will also get
Gears of War
Ace Combat if it doesnt come to the PS3 over the next 4 months
can you play KOTOR on the 360? I know they have some BC and i would love to play more of that game
ADD ON: Nice thanks for info
The elite is the way to go also.
and an @ss load of Blu Ray and HD DVD's
It is time for PS3 and 360 owners to put the Wii in check.
that would be zezo on my avetar, but henry is a good player to. shame he went to the team i hate the most.
PS3 has nothing to brag about, I have not seen a more disastrous console launch since the Jaguar, Sony can't do anything right and they are finally getting what they deserve.
I love karma
Look you need some serious help, there are hot lines for people like you give them a call or it will be too late for you.
You need a hug.
The only things Sony did wrong was delay the launch/increase the price to push their own BR technology and overhype the cell. In the end it may pay off, but for now it looks like a mistake.
You must like the taste of feet cuz' it'll be in your mouth pretty soon. Shaky launch, but the Playstation brand is just too big to ignore. You'll be crying and-a-cussin' in 2008.
I never heard of zezo...Sounds like a brazilian...
Big soccer fan here but really only every 4 years do i really get hardcore. Nothing better then waking up at 4am to see my USA team get spanked...Shame Landon Donoven is a little sally girl who gets knocked off the ball by a stiff breeze (yea i spelled his name wrong)
you're a big soccer fan and you never heard of zezo!!!!!!!! dude, like those two don't mix. zezo= zidane on of the legendary players of all time . ohhhh i know how to refresh your memory.... it's the french guy who headbuted the italian guy in the world cup finale :-)... just youtube it
zidane-head butt. shame after all he did(wining the world cup, champions league,,,ext) he will be remembered to some as the head butter.
what is life like for you? Are you alright? Would you like a hug?
How can a person be like you? Well ok there where/are alot of ppl like you. These ppl where called the KKK and they couldnt find one good thing to say about things with a color of black
If you love karma dude you better turn your ways because b4 you know it a car is going to run over your dog and your mom is going to tell you the milk man is your daddy
I know all about Zidane dude. trust me i loved watching that dude play. The avitar is just so small i couldnt really tell by looking
That dude was/is magic on the ball
and yea i never knew he had that nick name
ADD ON: #16
sorry about the nick... i guess i took it for granted that everybody knows his nick name.
also a bubble for a fellow zezo fan.
killer trap I cant stand Barcelona either lol
anyways I think eventually the PS3 will outsell the 360, I expect it to start catching up in late 2008 with big titles, home, and Dual Shock 3 out. Also prolly another price drop.
Yeah, right. Forget about the anti-trust lawsuits the US GOVERNMENT had on mr gates. Forget about Gates repeatedly bullying other companies to include some form of windows in their apps. Forget about Gates trying to monopolize the whole computer program business. Gates. What a humanitarian.
I wish my 360 would RROD so i can get an HDMI enabled model. lol
Don't worry, it will. Give it a few weeks and it'll REDLINE just like mine did.
I have been waiting since November 2005
I do think Microsoft has to be very careful... one of Sony's biggest strength is Hype and Marketting... They are able to create the impression that they are selling 10 times the numbers of xbox 360... when in reality they are still behind... remember when they first lower the price... everyone though the PS3 would sell more consoles than the xbox 360... Sony gave that apearance... They do this specially on contries where things can't be proved... isn't interesting that Sony and their fanboys claim victory on contries (except Japan) where the most reliable source is VGC? Contries like the UK, US, Canada and others where there is capture the xbox 360 is winning?
I think microsoft; though they do not need a price drop at this point... no console needs one during the xmass.. since they all sell well... they should be very careful not fall behind and drop the price even if they don't need to as far as profits are concern. You will need to drop the price and ensure that Sony does not catch up.
im so loving this was if it wasent for this 2 fighting it out wed still be paying 425 for a ps3 lol
who sold more units this month
ya thats right the xbox360
sony fans dont be such tools
