Sony copies Nintendo through 'Life with PlayStation' service

Stevie Smith of The Tech Herald writes: "Despite pulling in billions of dollars each year, it would appear certain videogame heavyweights prefer to take their inspiration from industry rivals rather than invest profits into true originality."

What I say? Life with Playstation is rip-off and if you can't see that either you do not own a wii or you are a moron.

Good read...

juuken4081d ago (Edited 4081d ago )

DOES THE WII FIND CURES FOR OTHERWISE INCURABLE DISEASES?
CAN YOU FOLD ON THE WII?

THEN KINDLY SHUT THE HELL UP.

For f*ck's sake man...give it a damn rest already. Folding Home is one of the most amazing features on the PS3. I don't see the 360 finding cures for people who are dying out there. I don't see the Wii doing that as well.

You f*cking dumbass.

Go on, slam the disagree button ya damn cowards. Unless the 360 and the Wii can help people who are dying out there...don't even think about screaming 'COPYSTATION!'.

Some of you have no hearts whatsoever.

You should be b*tchslapped.

Stryfeno24081d ago

My, my, my Juuken? What horrible words you like to type...Tsk, tsk, tsk.

You moronic little troll...This is straight copying. Who cares if you could [email protected] in the background. This is what was on the Wii FIRST!!! Point blank...end of dicussion

juuken4081d ago (Edited 4081d ago )

And you can go to hell.

It amazes me when people like you are insensitive pricks. I don't see the 360 doing anything for mankind, other than existing so 360 fanbrats can chest thump over how it has this, how it has that, and how it has so many freaking games!

Your hatred for the Playstation 3 is just disgusting.

Straight copying? Do you have your evidence? Can you show me screenshots of the Wii's version and the PS3's version of Life with Playstation?

I want to see if they're EXACTLY the same.

And obviously Microsoft didn't copy from the Wii as well? Mii avatars? Yeah...they didn't alright. They came up with that allll by themselves.

You're just finding ways to discredit the PS3. If this was on the 360, you wouldn't be saying that sh*t. You would have praised it as the second coming, wouldn't you?

Grow the f*ck up already.

Gaystation: Again, does the 360 help with cures? Good for Bill Gates that he donated money. But has the 360 *ever* done what the PS3 has done with Folding Home?

NO.

You fail at life prick.

Patchstation: Yeah, and your point being? I'm sick of your crap. You'll do anything, and I mean ANYTHING to discredit the PS3.

You're a jackass.

There's no more to be said. :)

Gaystation 34081d ago (Edited 4081d ago )

Microsoft wins no matter what!

Bill Gates alone, has given over $29 billion dolars to charity and medical reasearch in the last 7 years.

When Sony or anyone working for them does something similar. Then they will have something to be proud of. Until then, screw them. They contribute nothing to humanity.

Stryfeno24081d ago (Edited 4081d ago )

Well, somebody is mad.

But, but, but MS copied Miis...Bwaahahahaaaahahhahaah

rawd4081d ago (Edited 4081d ago )

"Bill Gates alone has given over $29 billion dolars to charity and medical reasearch in the last 7 years. "

And he still hasnt figured out what that itchy rash on his a$$ is

Freezingduck4081d ago

Every company copies from every other companies in the world...I mean if it's something good, then why not?

What makes it a "no-no" is that some companies copy more often than others (e.g. M$)

I am sure you can list thousands, but the most recent is that gay commercial.

Personally, I am glad SONY copy that feature from Nintendo.

GayStation34081d ago (Edited 4081d ago )

Suxa6 = Wii-mote rip-off
PSN = XBL rip-off

PS3 has already failed; Count the numbers of 360 this month in Japan( surge in sales for TOV and IU releases) you'll see that the 360 even outsold the PS3 in Japan this month HAHAH
I'm sure it outsold it in Europe as well thx to the price drop. And finally, do we really need to mention the U.S? hahahaah (NPD september should be entertaining; all the PS3 trolls will be hiding in caves)

Freezingduck4081d ago

Japan = Typical surge due to a new release + price-drop, personally that was a very poor surge (it should have been way, way higher) - M$ failed.

Europe = I love it how you used ,I "sure" and yet you're a arrogant and ignorant person...personally if you don't have the data, shut the hell up

USA = I love it how you jump the gun - just wait and see

This shows how stupid Xbots AKA Xbox360 fans really are - people like you give everyone else negative images, keep it up

GayStation34081d ago

STFU DeadDuck, you fail at life, as much as your PS3. PS3 is another synonym of fail. "You PS3 at life biatch"

InMyOpinion4080d ago

PSN = XBL without usability & findability

Go shove your 360 up your asscrack you inbreed.

NegativeCreep4274081d ago

As a 360 owner you know more about that than anyone else.

Freezingduck4081d ago

Listen, there are two type of "plagiarisms"

1. The stupid plagiarisms where a company copies something stupid from another companies (e.g. Wii-avatars LOL)

2. The innovative plagiarism where a company copies something nice from another companies (e.g. LWP w/ [email protected])

GayStation34081d ago (Edited 4081d ago )

"Go shove your 360 up your asscrack"
lol. We aren't all like you POS; don't think because you usually shove PS3s up your ass that we are going to do the same. We don't have @ssholes as big as yours mofo.

juuken4081d ago (Edited 4081d ago )

You just lost the argument Gayturd.

Oh, I'm sure your ass is big enough to fit the mediocre games, the overpriced accessories, and the 360. It'll make a niiiiiice neat package in your backside. :)

Failure at it's best.

Gam71: ...Then why attack the PS3? I don't understand why 360 fanbrats are supporting an article that was poorly written to begin with!

Grow a backbone for heaven's sake.

_______

"Juuken i thought we weren't going to respond to each other anymore?"

But your comment was right under mine and I disagreed with you.

"Learn to read."

I did read.

"I wasn't attacking the ps3."

I didn't imply you directly. I actually meant your other buddies who are attacking this feature. Perhaps *you* should learn how to read.

"I rarely do."

Sure.

"I was having a go at that imbecile duck and his stupid comment."

His stupid comment? He had a point.

"You weren't even on my radar but you have to insult and attack."

I didn't insult you directly. I said grow a backbone. It sounded as if you were defending the actions of the out of control 360 fanatics who are attacking this feature.

"Read your first comment in the open zone. You have a go at the wii and the 360."

...Eh? I support the Wii thank you. I don't scream "THE WII IS A FADDDDDDD!111111" I have a go at the 360 because it should have been a reliable console to begin with.

"Why attack the 360?"

1. Unreliable.
2. I cannot stand Microsoft.
3. I cannot stand the fact that people had to go through consumer torture because of this system.
4. Microsoft's bullying tactics.

Why do some 360 fanboys attack the PS3?

"Also i'm not supporting this article or the notion that sony or anyone is copying anyone else."

I'm glad you're not because it's flamebait.

"Its called progress and everyone has copied everyone else."

Then you need to preach that to the idiots around here. I'll give you credit-you're not too bad of a person.

"One last thing.
Why are you so damn vulgar? you insult and swear and act high and mighty. Why?"

Because I'm sick of people like Patchstation and Gaystation attacking the PS3 as if the companym raped their entire family or something. There was no reason for that whatsoever. I tend to curse when I'm pissed off.

"Conduct yourself with some tact."

Hard to do that. Read above.

"Your mouth is why people don't like you and you dare say i'm picking on you because your a girl because i've told you that kind of sexist rhetoric doesn't work with me."

People don't like me because I speak the truth. They don't like to hear it so they start insulting me. Like I said, when I get angry I have a bad temper. If you don't piss me off with bullsh*t talk, I won't curse at you. If you resort to bullsh*t talk, I will tell you *exactly* how I feel and I won't back down.

"thought i'd get than one in before you start using it."

Good.

I'm very sorry if you thought I was referring to you. Like I said, you're not as bad as they are and you had a few good points.

Not being impartial much there.

Its stupid is ms does it but innovative when sony does it.

I think i'll put [email protected] on my ms pc.

I'm sure all you ps fans have already put [email protected] on your ms pc's right?

I'm sure no 360 owner has never done that, has never donated to charity, there are no doctors and scientist that are 360 owners.
Yep we have never helped to solve the worlds problems unlike you ps3 lot which do it every day.

Juuken i thought we weren't going to respond to each other anymore?

Learn to read.

juuken

learn to read, or at least learn to intemperate my comments.

""Read your first comment in the open zone. You have a go at the wii and the 360."

...Eh? I support the Wii thank you. I don't scream "THE WII IS A FADDDDDDD!111111" I have a go at the 360 because it should have been a reliable console to begin with.

"Why attack the 360?"

All that was referring to your first comment in open zone here which i'll repeat
"DOES THE WII FIND CURES FOR OTHERWISE INCURABLE DISEASES?
CAN YOU FOLD ON THE WII?

THEN KINDLY SHUT THE HELL UP.

For f*ck's sake man...give it a damn rest already. Folding Home is one of the most amazing features on the PS3. I don't see the 360 finding cures for people who are dying out there. I don't see the Wii doing that as well.

see you mention the 360 for no reason other than to attack it. Ok the first guy mentioned the wii but no-one mentioned the 360.
You was the first.

Do you see what i mean when i say you attack the 360 as bad or worse than you believe 360 fans attack the ps3 en masse.

There was no need for it.

And eveything you said about 360 owners can be applied to ps3 fans on here, and in a greater number.

Seriously why do you hate the 360?

all those reasons apply to sony, the injuries caused by psp batteries, laptop batteries, laptops, broken ps3's (it happens)
hows the customer service on that?
Pay for your own repairs, refusal to acknowledge the problem and act. (they wont recall the laptops)
i don't like sony, they lie, mislead, bully the competition, their pr guys.
i also don't like ms. wish we was all using amiga's

but you act like 360 fans on here have raped you!?!
I know you have violent tendencies you're proud off but the internet toughguy act on the internet only shows you up.
You can get your point across in so many better ways and keep your dignity.

Do you really want to be known as n4g's female nasim?
You could represent women on here in a positive way.

InMyOpinion4080d ago

lol @ rabid Juuken.

"Why attack Juuken?"

1. Unreliable.
2. I cannot stand the b!tch.
3. I cannot stand the fact that Juuken had to go through fanboy torture because of her PS3.
4. Juuken's bullying tactics.

Ok you fixed it.

FantasyStar4081d ago

uhh...dur durr?

Of course Sony copied Nintendo! But I still consider Nintendo to have the better service. For one thing I can't see the weather in my city as LWP only has so many "choice" cities for weather reports. Also the web browser sucks, as always. Nintendo's web-browser was so much better and more fluid. I can list alot of thing Sony needs to work on, but I'm pretty sure they know what to do.

On a positive side, I love how well [email protected] is integrated with LWP.

kapedkrusader4081d ago

...No, they are also evolving with the rest of the market. Video-game consoles are no longer just for games. People expect more, especially when they pay more. So the gripe shouldn't be that they "copied", the gripe should be, why didn't they copy it sooner.

Ben10544081d ago

if it was the same it would be copying but LWP has so many things upgraded, live space view of the earth, shows a live (sort of)webcam of the city your at, uses google news, you can go on to the internet while using it (like google news), it runs [email protected] in the vackground and more

So Microsoft is also evolving with the rest of the market with avatars? Weird... I thought Microsoft blatantly "copied" Miis according to most people. No offense, some people here have double standards.

and I suppose the WII also helps curing diseases in the background while you are reading news ?

Plagiarism ? I prefer to think they improved upon a previous idea.

Again, an article that tries to steer fanboys into bashing each other.
