Oh, it's just Bruce. No big deal, guys.

On a side note, though. Bruce, if you don't even know what you're talking about or trying to convey in this blog, how are we suppose to know?

You act as if marketing strategies and consumer interest doesn't change daily. You then act as if Sony didn't bend over backwards to make sure the core adopters, at the time, were getting what "THEY/SONY" thought at the time was the right direction.

Do you see how absurd your blog here is? Sony seen that their direction was wrong and they've worked diligently to change that. What would you rather them do, not do anything and keep the PS3 as it was in conceptual form in 2005?

Use your head, Bruce.

LOL PS3 is selling faster than X360 despite of being launched at a high price point and COMPETITION (X360 and Wii) around

I have a launch console and it feels like bought yesterday, top notch hardware and design, up to date, Kutaragi is a genius...BR player, touch sensitive, no power brick, built-in batteries and wi-fi, upgradable HD, HDMI 1.3, TrueHD sound, no old fashioned disc tray, etc, a PS3 and kick back and play, forget about your console becoming obsolete due to superior PS3 SKUs being launched 6 months afterwards

I wouldn't call those mistakes but trying not to ripp off customers

How old is this article? Europe I only find the 40 GB to be replaced next month by the 80 GB...same in the US? where's the confusion?....we could also go back and put together all what MSFT have said about the X360 since 2005 and it would also sound confusing as things have changed and other never happened...

The only confused is you "Brucie"..."ICE COLD MAN, ICE COLDDDD!!!!!"

The Lazy One4358d ago

Sony's gotten a lot of their stuff in line now. There was a lot of batsh*t crazy stuff being said closer to launch.

As per N4G's posting guidelines

"Posting Negative News

.....That some no-name-blogger writes a story about how much he dislikes console X, that is not news."

How is it that EVERY submission from this guy is/are

1) biased opinions
2) misinformed
3) has improper references being used as if they are credible
4) made by HIM and linked to HIS site (blatantly abusing N4G to gain hits)
5) NEVER any positive news about Sony or negative about MS?
6) Has been proven to be all of this and more in the past but is still allowed to post absolute BS?

What a "journalist" this guy is. Biased, opinionated, uninformed, disreputable and uses outdated info in a guise as if "new".

shine13964358d ago

don't click on his site, his probably making money off of this...

juuken4357d ago (Edited 4357d ago )

This guy is so full of sh*t that it's not even funny.

Like PoSTed said there, everyone makes mistakes. But it depends on how you go about solving those mistakes. I think Sony has done a good job solving those mistakes despite the media bias and attacks from critics.

This crap needs to end now.

He hates Sony, and he hates the PS3. Okay, that's his prerogative-nobody can tell him what to like or what not to like. But these constant attacks shows that he's running out of things to attack the PS3 for.

makes mistakes.

looking at sony now, it doesnt seem like they have made any big mistakes to where it will hurt them in the long run.

talk about marketing.... sony has the biggest year over year increase.

the war has just begun.

Gam714358d ago

They only had the biggest year on year increase because their first year was so poor.

If you want to say something like that you have to acknowledge the reason why it was so big otherwise you're just throwing out spin in a way sony would be proud off.

PoSTedUP4357d ago (Edited 4357d ago )

from '07 to '08 was poor????

they out soled 360 world wide in '07 dude. get real.

their first year ('06)was only like 3-4 months.....

who's spinning?????

your a shmuck.

power of Green 4359d ago (Edited 4359d ago )

Yes I agree with Number One, this was a tantalizing piece and an important reminder of the atrocious manipulation of the market and consumers Sony practices.

It will behoove any gamer wanting to know the history of why Sony, has even had their head above water thus far.

I know the angry antisocial Gothic people, I call Sony fans try to mask the origins of the glimmer of hope Sony has recently shown. I do enjoy that fact people no longer wan't to be ignorant.

Zeevious4359d ago

You have used the word 'behoove'

There is nothing more to say.

PoG, you're the biggest nerd on here as far as I'm concerned. You embody the phrase, "the pot calling the kettle black."

As far as this article is concerned Bruce is no more or no less a biased fanboy then say PoG here. Although ... they just might be the same person. We all know who pays their bills to sit around all day spewing nonsense on the internet. Cough*Microsoft*Cough. There's no way either has time for a real job. Maybe if the two of them got some real jobs they'd be able to buy both systems so we don't have to hear their fanboy nonsense anymore. Oh yeah, and speaking of "Goth" the both of them must be as pale as vampires after siting in front of their computers all day everyday.

juuken4357d ago

...Why do you refer to things you really don't understand?

Lumbo4358d ago

I only need to see the source to see that this isn't worth 1 minute of reading .. another BoG garbage post...

littletad4358d ago

And Harrison has little to nothing to do with Sony these days, besides respect. Quoting old comments is not only silly but unprofessional when were talking about a medium that evolves. Sony isn't liable for changing their business practices, get over it Bruce.
