you should cut your vains
if he can find them lol / sorry Tor my bad
The spelling of todays youth; thank you text messaging.
This has nothing to do with text messaging. I think it boils down to no child left behind.
...This is the second time I've seen your video blog. First one I really enjoyed, this one really turned me off. Why? Cause you didn't know what the hell you were talking about. First by suggesting that if Sony wanted to save money they could get rid of the memory card slots. That happened over 6 months ago. how could you not know this? Secondly, who needs Wi-fi and why would i want to game in Wi-fi speeds? I need Wi-fi!! My bedroom has no internet port, so I game and download movies and stream hulu with my Wi-fi at the same speed as it did with a wire connection. Lastly, you ramble toooo much. For pete's sake, get to the point.
@1.5 What do you think is cheaper to produce? HDMI cables or Wifi adapters? That was my point. I was aware that they removed the slots out of the 20gb PS3's but they are no longer in production. I have an original 80gb system and I wasn't aware that they took the slots out of the new 80gb systems. Duly noted. I think Wifi for the PS3 should be optional. They could lower the price more by making it optional. I still don't think there are that many people that game over wifi but I was looking for methods to lower the price and give them an excuse to include some type of hidef cable. I ramble a lot on my shows. That's why people like them. Thanks for your comments KapedKrusader. Peace, T Oh and DW4, don't mind these armchair journalists. Let them keep posting, it raises the degree level. ;)
Torrence you fail, just like your recent podcasts and shows.
Oh Noes.. Another replica of the Hip Hop Gamer Show....
Anyway, I fully believe Sony is having a throughouh discussion as to what they can cut from the PS3 to make it more cost friendly. WiFi, extra memory slots, excess USB slots, etc can all be cut to introduce a 299.99 sku. Heck, bring back the 20gb hdd imo. When's the last time we saw a 5 gb install? Even KZ2 doesn't require an install. What I didn't get was the whole red neck accent bit about "ma and pa kettle" buying PS3s and not knowing what they need for it. Maybe I'm in the wrong here, but anyone that plunks down almost half a G on a game console and doesn't do research on it is probably planning on using it for a blu-ray player. In January of 2007, when I had 700 bucks to go toward my next-gen console, I could've told you every tidbit about the 360 and the PS3. I can't imagine plunking down that much money and not having done the requisite research. I had my HDMI cable before I had my PS3.
A vain is one of a series of vanities. Yes I made that up but bitbag has those too. Cut Wifi? Do they want WiFi to be optional? Dumb. Tooling up for another model just leads to even more confusion and in fact the cost is higher to run production for dissimilar models. So in essence fleabag thinks Sony should commit to an act that will cost them more money. Smart.
You mean today's? =P
I'm surprised you have any bubbles with that avatar! It makes all your comments seem offensive. But I guess working with HHG puts you on the defensive alot! If they are putting Wifi in every model, they must have another reason, because not everybody needs wifi and unless it has some future purpose aside from PSP connectivity, it is a waste of money. Yes I use it, but just trying to make a point that if they were going to cut costs, this would be the ideal area and since they're not cutting it, it must have a future use.
cutting wifi would effectivly save about 10 quid per unit (and thats at consumer price, probably much cheaper in the quantities sony get) so it wouldnt really matter if they included it or not because no ones worried about £10 when there spending 300.
A big WTF. HDMI cables or Wifi adapters thing Thank God they didn't because I would be screwed I don't need HDMI cables but I do need Wifi adapter because I have no wires that can reach my internet hub. Please stop this cut feathers crap from the PS3. Because the last time some A-Hole came up with way to save PS3 one of them was to cut B/C. Their reason was this: Sale of the 80gb were poor vs. the 40gb was because no one care about the B/C and more space on the HDD was more important because the install of the games. So guess Mother [email protected]#$^%$ What Sony listened. Also please remember NOT everyone uses the system the same way as you I remember some A-hole talking [email protected]# in the forms about how Sony rip him off. You see this A-hole bought the 40gb PS3 than jump on the internet bit#$ing about the lack of 4 usb ports and those little slots you're so ready to cut out. So to make your rant in the video NULL I'm going to have to remind you that the 80gb MGS4 PS3 with B/C is still being made. I just saw a few sites with said model as brand new and the seller was the site it's self. In the end I like the other show you did but not this one. I don't know WTF you were thinking. And by the way you and HHG need to stop with the up close pic of your self or *HHG* showing off the arms because most of your fan are dudes . . well that's more likely than not so you see my point.
Looks like Shaq at the foul line...
You know, the wireless card in the PS3 probably costs about $10. They should definitely remove that and start charging vast amounts for an add-on.
this just shows you what type of uneducated baboons (pretend) to be journalists..
Was that an intentional racial slur?
Not really, that didn't even cross my mind. Are you racist? Since you are aware of that stuff? Don't give a crap about his racial background, "article" is ridiculous, it's beyond that. It's insult to industry.
I don't think I'm racist, but I know how sensitive people can be.
a good reason not to insult someone...knowing how insensitive some are. Your typical everyday racist is never going to admit to being racist, because people are that simple. This means you!!
This guy made HHG before he pulled a biggie and stabbed him in the back to do his own thing and stuff. I respect The Bit Bag much more then I do HHGS.
Its so funny that all of you people here are running your mouths about Torrence Davis yet your here on N4G while he's getting ready to go to E3. He's obviously somebody when he has special guest such as Aaron Greenburg and gets free games that he gives away to people to review. Oh and he works at Harvard. Who do you guys work for? Oh I forgot you guys are nobodies that live in your mom's basement still.
My mom's basement is cosy...plus I can stay up as late as I want!
LOL @ all the disagrees. Stop being so spiteful and jealous. You all should be glad that there are people out there doing stuff like this instead of nothing at all. I mean cmon, what would you be doing right now if there wasn't a davis daily? You would be doing nothing. Now hurry up, crawl back into that hole you came out of and drink the rest of the warm milk your mom made for you before it gets cold.
Couldnt agree with you more. Torrence has been solid with me and his view. I am a pro PS3 fan and he still has my vote as being worth my time.
Lol at 'special guest, Aaron Greenberg'...
but id rather take advantage of the free day off work!
you are right... sorry, my bad. Im not american. LOL. Speak Spanish.
che, riquelme? after the libertadores cup you should be ashamed of that nick... :P
Oh complaining, N4G crybabies force, most of them are (put a word) Tor keep the good work, ignore these crybabies
I don't agree with taking anything out. It would gimp the experience. It is a very rich experience with all that it comes with... please do not dumb it down.
Toris, your MGS 5 rumors and speculation is just that. Stop spreading things like this and less people will be let down when they realise Kojima's next "BIG" game has nothing to do with "MGS" ... Just saying. Baboon, isn't a racial slur - by the way. Only Racist minds would accept it as such.
you are alive?
Go back to youtube with that reverse racism 12 year old garbage. It doesn't work in the real world.
It doesn't work cos' of idiots like yourself who don't know how to let anything go. I'm as Jewish as they come, whole family is... Do you hear me and my people crying about the Holocaust you jerg off? No, and you know why? Cos' life goes on with... or without us.
who said anything about the jews?
i am a proud black man and i call 'em as i see them, this guy is an idiot, gamesblow-call any black person a baboon to their face and you will get torn apart. just a friendly warning to YOU.
How do we know you're REALLY black? You might be... an (whispers) Antarctican in disguise..
not have it either mean children or black people. too owned-the comment was racist and u should thank the internet for giving you the freedom to say such a thing. it would be a mistake to say that word around any black people.
Torrence is a cool guy, but HiphopGaymers aura of failure is engulfing him too. Escape while you still can Torrence.
but it is just blatantly obvious that, in regards to complaints and nit-picking about things, he is always on Sony and the PS3 and never gives Microsoft or the Xbox 360 equal time. Now here he is b*tching about Sony not including an HDMI cable with the PS3. To this day, Sony sells the Playstation 3 at a loss and a quality HDMI cable can be bought for around $50 if you know how to bargain shop. What the F*ck is next? Why hasn't Sony included a free gas card with every console??? Sometimes Torrence just complains like a Bot!
"Sony sells the Playstation 3 at a loss and a quality HDMI cable can be bought for around $50 if you know how to bargain shop." Please tell me you didn't pay over 10 dollars for an HDMI cable.
Why do you think they call it **itbag.com? Seriously, you would think by now they would realize their bias will leave them relegated to the position of podunk blog.
yea any hdmi cable will do they are all the same quality. Get a 5 dollar hdmi cable and your good to go.
Hit the "Agree" button if people here use Wi-fi for online gaming, downloading, et cetera. I do when I'm too lazy to switch to a cord.
I would agree with myself, but N4G won't let me so add 1 agree to this number.
I do at times
My router is upstairs and my PS3 is downstairs. I need Wifi...
So much idiotic comments in here. Carry on.
That just shows how ahead he is with the times with the ps3, but i bet he knows what latest jasper or zypher or what prankster model is at the lates Gamestop.
Did you even know that most people don't even know what HDMI is or how it works? that is one of the smart reason's Sony added the Av an the 2nd is that not everyone was going out to buy a HD tv. Theirs your answers.
i bought my 60 ps3 at launch and I knew of 6 people close to me that didn't know anything about hdmi. they had it hooked up to hd tvs with composite cables . you would think since sony launched with a blu ray movie packed in that they would at least pack a hdmi cord. don't even let me get on them not packing a headset .
What a douche bag.
porch monkey's i bet tor davis listens to rap,plays basketball (cuz they have the most black players) and hunts down rich white ppl.
2 out of 3 aint bad. ;)
lol haha im not arguein that one. yo was i at least correct on the rest of them?
I for 1 am a user of the WiFi and am quite glad it's included. Also, there will be no price cut of $50. It will be $100 or none at all. $50 is not enough to actually make a SIGNIFICANT difference, and I bet Sony realizes this. Honestly, I bet we don't see any price cut announcement at E3 at all anyways. But the next price cut we do see, it will be $100.
ok i agree that i thought that sony should have included a hdmi cable but if you spent six hundred on a system then you should know something about what you bought.i agree that the cf slot shouldn't be their bit the sd and mem stick duo should still be available. i cant tell you how many times i ahve went to someone house and went to upload something to their ps3 to find out they dont have a 60 and no slots.personally i am one of the few who dont think 600 was a high price tag for the ps3. but that may be because i have spent way more than that on my 14 xbox 360's. I trusted that sony would deleiver a quality product since they slipped in other feilds lately( tv, phones, etc). what i will say though about the ps3 slim is that if their isnt any backward compatibility they need a 250$ price tag. with that price tag they catch up to the wii. that is because more people want a ps3 right now more than any other system with a 250 dollar price tag you they are right their. The 360 doesnt still have that market. what it does have is the price and that gets the people entering into the next gen who dont want to spend the money. i just dont see how people still compare the systems when the ps3 is double the price of the 360. i think of the 360 like a xbox 1.5 it's a high def extension of the first system with better online. but it drops the ball in alot of categories. reliability, wifi (i'm one who has it in the living room. but i agree the game is better jacked straight in) blu-ray, free online, web browser, also a ability to install another os, blutooth.not to mention the memory slots, these would be everything someone would ask for in a next gen system. The thing we are talking about is that the next gen will come in like 2 to 5 years. I'm saying if they do come in the next 5 they wont make a impact for 10 the ps3 will last 15 years xbox will last 10 and wii will be played 30 years from now like the old nintendo is now. those are my predictions.
..then PSN wouldn't be free now would it? I mean hell even xbox 360 players have to purchase a $100 wifi-adapter and pay monthly for xbox live.
You sir, are an idiot. You could still plug in a CAT-5 network cable (which offers superior connection, anyway) to the PS3. Sure, WiFi is handy if your internet modem is downstairs and your PS3 is upstairs or down the hall, however a wired connection is ALWAYS better. Also, the 360 has a CAT-5 network connection on the console, the WiFi is purely optional. Again, you're an idiot
That shut him up. Well said X.
If they want cheap, why doesn't Sony just build Xboxes. No thanks, they already gimped the PS3 for tightarses and people are still complaining about what they removed, I dont think they should removed anymore. And for the record I have no problem about no HD cords. Whats the point?If you give HD cables all the Standard def owners will complain they had to pay for it. If you give HDMI, th component will complain, if you give component, the HDMI's with complain. God, just buy the console and then buy the $10 cable you need separetly. Do you really expect Sony to put 3 cables in every PS3 when only one will ever be used leaving 2 going to waste. Yeah, thats cost cutting.
But HDMI cables is a must for a bluray player. Obviously people like yourself don't mind putting up more money for something that Sony should of included so that's why they do it. A lot of suckers in this world.
People who buy a PS3 with a SDTV are just plain stupid. They might as well stick to their PS2 or original Xbox. I think Sony should include a cheap HDMI (they're all pretty much the same, no need to pay $80 for a "premium" cable).
