The PS3 has many enemys in the world not least of all the 360 and the Wii. Thing is could its biggest enemy be a little more closer to home than first thought ? ....
I never thought about it like that, not saying I agree but this is definitely worth analyzing....I'm interested to see what the other gamers think about this article?????
So true. The same way fanboys compare the PS2 to 360 (which is not completely right, because ofcourse a 100 dollar console will sell to lagards and a 400 one premium 360 has another audience, but still), in their view this would be so true. PS3 defeated by PS2? Maybe supporting it with these good titles isn't so wise from Sony after all...
This article proves alot of points. This is exatly why it is a very confusing time for Sony die hard fan boys. If Sony is smart those great PS2 games will be backward comp. And God of war makes me want a PS2 by its self. But I just cant buy a console for one game. I think Sonys worst enemy is there own fan boys if they keep pissing them off.
You can put the PS3 to rival their own PS2 and PS1 but u can't say that the PS3 has a challenge. Its just about beating their old record. Thats all. And if they beat their old record sales (PS2) Then once again PS3 will pwn all. NEXT!
I dont think any console for a very long time will beat those ps2 sales. Sega was going down, microsoft was new, and nintendo droped the ball.
Why do people keep saying Xbox has a better line up of games, half of those games are also comming to the PS3, and so Xbox has some exclusives which are good, mabye 2 or 3 really good, but sony has as many good games comming out as Xbox does and as for really good games comming out Sony also has a few of those to so please don't buy into this fanboy crap, anybody who even bothers to post stuff on the net constantly about stuff, is clearely a suporter of something or a fanboy, so therefore this does not reflect the views of the general public, i know 2 people with a Xbox 360 and i know of lot's of PS2 owners who won't touch the thing, i mean i went into my local supermarket and looked at the games for it, Perfect Dark zero, Test Drive Unlimited, Oblivion, Saints Row, PGR 3, DOA 4, Gun, Amped 3, Tony hawks 7, Nintey Nine nights, Rockstar Table Tennis, so this is what makes the 360 great, do these games justify the purchase of the 360, don't gimme that crap there releasing good games in the future, do they have enough now? Sony is out in a month and i can honestly say, Motorstorm, RFOM, Heavingly sowrd, Lair, fear and ect crush these games, it's ok saying Xbox 360 has these games comming ect, but there not out for a while apart from the GOW, but that's it, so relisticly speaking Sony will be on par if not better for games when it's released!
why do people keep saying that? I wonder... When a guy tells you you're a horse, tell him to f**k off. When another guy tells you you're a horse, punch him. When a third guy tells you you're a horse, buy a saddle.
"half of those games are also comming to the PS3" There was an article on here a while ago saying how the ps3 had like 90 exclusives out of like 160 titles (or w/e). If thats true then your statements way off because at max, only 70 of those 360 titles would be coming the ps3.
I'll tell you who's the true enemy, I have a pic of the PS3's Genji2 crab boss. Check it out! With enemy's like these who needs a PS2? http://img428.imageshack.us... Remember flip him over for "MASSIVE DAMAGE"
What can you say that this artical could be very true. PS2 still has some excelent support and is pumping out awesome games for it. Maybe the ps2 is the next-gen killer. The masses could be not so ready for it. Only 5 million people have gone for the next-gen so far, so who's to say
Sony definitely is in a bit of a pinch. They feel they need to support the PS2 base and they have....much more so than MS did with X-box once the 360 launched. But, I think Sony will need to do just as MS did to force their base to buy into the PS3. The real problem Sony has is this...3rd parties are gonna keep supporting the PS2 like crazy. I mean until the PS2 owner numbers dwindle down...why would they stop? They can develop games at a cheaper cost on the PS2 and they still have a base Market that will be quadruple any other systems for atleast a year..if not longer. And so this will keep many PS2 fans from jumping ship to any system for at least a little while.
Sony Pwned Itself!
Is getting major support and games like FF12, okami, and God of War 2 are AAA titles that are just beautifully made! I don't see how this makes it PS3s enemy because these games are backwards compatible! I do think that owners of the origional xbox that have not moved to Next Gen yet would be sour with MS because of the stoppage of all support for the console! Sony really does a good job of keeping their consoles alive during a transtion into next gen. I would be alittle sore if I owned a xbox and I didn't move onto the 360 because of financial reasons or whatever! PS2 has had the most quality and value this year! Its just been a great console and I hope Sony can at least duplicate the effort (if not exceed) with the PS3. I'm just not sure of what MS is doing to hold off both Nintendo and Sony because they have had a year to win over gamers and I think they really wasted the one year it had to itself! Much like the dreamcast did with the PS2! I think the BIG winner this Christmas will be Nintendo with the Wii, because the its a well known company and the price point is low enough for most gamers to see a real value! GOW will sell consoles but it won't sell to kids becaur of the massive amount of gore where the Nintendo will be a hot buy because its seen as "child friendly". I keep saying the wii is like a snake waiting in tall grass and could come put of nowhere to really make a huge difference in this console war! PS3 won't be too much a factor until March because Sony just won't have the units to meet demand! This Christmas will really be PS2/PS3 vs 360 vs wii and my money is with Nintendo for the early lead! Anyway it breaks down its set to be a great holiday for all gamers so let's enjoy it!
But it's nice to go over it again. Fact of the matter is that people are going to buy the PS3 no matter what. And the ones who can't still have a ton of PS2 titles worth purchasing to hold them over until they can get one. Even PS3 owners will be purchasing some great PS2 titles like FF12, Rogue Galaxy, Okami, and God of War 2. It was the same situation when the PS2 launched. There were still plenty of great PS1 titles to invest in. Hell, even Final Fantasy 9 was released after the PS2 came out and people still bought the PS2 in droves. Right now the PS2 is the Xbox 360's greatest competition, especially since the PS2 is outselling it month after month. Come November, Microsoft is going to be competing against three consoles: PS2, PS3, and the Wii.
Sony will be competing with itself and 2 other next-gen consoles this holiday season. While some people I know already own a 360 and they have thier PS2, just as I do; they might not be compelled to purchase the PS3 early on. Unless they wanna play sequals much later.I'm actually getting FF12 for my PS2 while waiting for more 360 games this holiday, so I've already made up my mind. The fact is, eventhough you already have a old-gen console, you can already have your mind made up as to which next-gen console that is going to be your main one; wether it may be the PS3, 360 or both. Having an xbox or Ps2 doesn't mean you will purchase thier next-gen console. Who knows you might just decide to "jump in" or "welcome upgrade."
"Yes, it can output to 1080p. Yes, it will have better online and storage abilities. But these are all features Sony has told us, not shown us." Technically Sony has shown us -- well, more like our representatives, the journalists. We've seen 1080p (RR7, VT3, Lair, NBA'07 etc.), better online (Resistance, Warhawk, Motorstorm, flOw etc.) and storage (photo slideshow, Resistance, Lair etc.). Some might not think it's enough, but they have shown it. And at the same point in time last year, less were shown for the X360. "Microsoft gave Xbox 360 XBLA, a great reason for fanboys to keep their systems on without a bunch of release titles. When Oblivion’s feeling tired, owners can tap into Street Fighter II, Geometry Wars, and loads of other classic and remix games through Live Arcade." "... some form of XBLA/VC downloadable game support, but we haven’t really seen them in action." Well... All of the above games were announced after the launch of the X360. And the PS3 will have its own (among others flOw, which has been shown and played at TGS). "Besides pretty graphics, the PS3 doesn’t look like it’s going to be that much better than the PS2." Oh... I thought the online services, the incredible gameplay physics, the built-in browser etc. counted for something. But apparently not... Not even great graphics counts... sad... Actually... The PS2 only gave us "improved graphics" as well. Why bother with anything but the PSOne then?
agreed. the article seems to be nothing more than a rationale piece by someone who, for other reasons than the flawed reasons he's listed, is trying to convince himself that the PS3 isn't worth getting. the reasons he list the PS2 as the PS3's worst enemy is absurd. Sony supported PSOne with AAA titles well into the PS2's lifecycle: it's the same with the PS2-to-PS3 transition.
this is the sony strategy that buy a ps3 if you could (afford or is available) and if not then buy a ps2 with great games instead of all the other consoles....
I think grammar is your worst enemy, article poster.
This is this guys opinion. Who cares how many consoles M$, Sony, and Nintendo pushes out. I just want to play games. I don't want to brouse the net from my sofa, watch movies, or video chat with ppl. Lots of ppl do, but gaming is why I got a 360, and will be why I get a PS3. I have a computer to do other things with.
you're so sad! *welcome upgrade* what's that supposed to mean? I believe Sony added a LOT of things to its nex-gen console. What did MS add to theirs? Graphics...that's correct...graphics. You make me sick, dude. Sony isn't its own enemy. It's only going to help the PS3 with HUGE blu-ray advertising and the PS2 owners seeing the benefit of buying a system that wasn't launched too early...
Nor was the 360 released early, they merely didnt heap $200 extra on us for the same looking games.
Honestly...the ps2 games their talking about are backwards compatible, so just buy the PS3 and play them in hi-def, obviously...this article is weird
That still doesn't answer my question...what else did MS add to the 360 besides better graphics?...
Better online, marketplace and arcade and better games because the extra system power and bandwith allow for you to control your team like in Graw, better AI like in GRAW and GOW, and a whole HD gaming package, Sony is adding a Hi-def movie player which you can get if you have a 360, the only person this gen adding anything extremely revolutionary to gaming is Nintendo
Lol if your a hardcore gamer like me you are most likely to sometime get all of the consoles. But I dont get them all at launch. No I play it smart since the Xbox 360 has mainly all the big name titles this year I'm getting the Xbox 360 because its cheaper. PS3 doesnt have all the big name exclusive titles shown at E3 this year. I can care less if they have 90 million exclusive titles I'm looking for the good titles. But by time next year roles by the PS3 will most likely be more worth buying to me. All the bugs it may have at launch should be fixed and just might have better exclusive titles than it does now to choose from. More likely to even find a used PS3 at a game store with a 60gb HD or games to choose from. But at this time sorry Sony no buy right now~.~ Sony is talking like they are trying to give me a computer more than a game console right now. I have a good computer right now that offers way more downloads so what your telling me is all I have to do is add a blu ray to it and I have a ps3? lol Also I dont know why someone would think this the ps2 is not Sonys weakness. But I'm like you PS3 fans I look at the ps3 and I say I got to have that console to. I see anything I want to grab it lol. But I'm looking at it from a different aspect and I'am now noticeing it might not be such a good idea to rush out there to get a PS3. If you didnt hear my story before with the PSP wasteing 300$ because it sound awesome with a the cool features but I gave it up after the lack of good game focus. The DS was actually more fun to me than the PSP at launch with more cool stuff that I havent heard of before in gaming like the touch screen. It seems that Sony isnt showing anything realy that I havent seen before in gaming already. Like the Xbox 360 is in a current update for the Dashboard actually allowing to play XNA games! Now I have never seen a feature like that for a console. I'm just asking for more than a blu ray and a shiny surface.... Sorry please dont hate me I love you. lol
The 360 barely has any exclusives at all just look and see at what happened to Oblivion and Full Auto PS3 has way more exclusive's then that RE5 is just going to be a one time deal for the 360 and that all and look at Ninja Gaiden Sigma TeamNinja is just going to make another Ninja Gaiden 2 as well for the PS3 this guy isn't explaining no where fast and of course we all know the 360 is losing its exclusive's to the PS3 while the 360 only has 2 of the games like RE5 and Assassins Creed and further more thats all the exclusive's that has been for the 360 and we all know that the Resident Evil Serie's wont be on the 360 ever again and same thing with Ninja Gaiden.
