A new report by the Los Angeles Times features further speculation by analysts concerning the October 2000-filed patent by Sony that could conceivably prevent rented, pre-owned, or borrowed games from being played on the PlayStation 3.

I don't care what analysts say. They said a PS3 could cost $800! They talk @ss and eat crap!

I could only imagine Sony's briefings during development of their new beloved console...
-Right, we're gonna say we launch in spring, when we know we're manufacturing in August.
-We're going to throw in a cheap motion-sensor gimmick to imitate the Wiimote. That will make us be really original and everyone will bow down to the empire of Sony!
-Yeah! Let's bash 360 launch games and then launch with Warhawk and Formula One. Lol...
-Yeah! We'll charge extra for PS3 because EVERYONE wants the Blu-Ray! It will store trillions and trillions and trillions of storage which will be needed for ABSOLUTELY NOTHING!
-Let's bash the manufacturing process of 360, then fuk it up ourselves!
-Don't forget guys, we need an original online service. So basically just copy Microsoft and Ninty.
-Then to access our inferior services, we cheaply copy the Xbox 360 Guide button, only make it a little watered down, with no lights or anything to save us that little extra cash.
-We'll bash the dual-SKU 360 packages, then release even more confusing SKU duals.
-We don't want worldwide launches, but what the hell, we have an 80 Billion loan so what have we got to lose?
-Finally, we'll stamp a little Ken shrine on each PS3, so every dedicated owner will be able to remember daily ' what a tit '.


whoa, where did you get this secret internal sony memo?

they are going to be pissed you revealed all their secrets!

#2. can it be that you are envy ??? yes it can be. the 500 bucks ps3 was the right step. because not all people will have a hdmi tv. but the core version of the xbox360 is pure sh!t. it has no hd, and is because of this worthless. you know the ps3 is worth the money and it is far better than the xbox360. period. ps3 launch titles > xbox360 second gen games. hahahaa


ps3 launch titles > N64 second gen games. hahahaa

and also coming to 360, thus justifying why I won't even invest in PS3!

and I've s#!t better looking turds than over half the PS3 games displayed in my Game Informer I just got...

and if the 360 core version was so horribly bad why does Sony feel the need to do one? must be because they realize it has purpose!
Only difference is 360 can be fully upgraded to the Premium where as the $500 PS3 you are stuck with that specific unit. With no memory card slots, no hdmi thus making the blu-ray obsolete, etc.. that would put the saying of $500 down the drain in the FACT category!

Achira, the core version may not have a HD, but this is the whole Microsoft Point. The philosophy of 'upgradeable'. Read about it. Then look at the PS3 core you get with a severe lack of essential features...

Abby deserves to be number 1.

He was created to appease the poison colored haired employees at Naughty Dog and their fantasy of hating all of their fathers for lack thereof. This was the worst case of a company that was in charge of a media hating their own fans.

Streamers would straight up be reported or even banned for letting Abby die in the boss fight while playing as a fake female that has a man's motion capture.

Abby as a human wouldn't exist in a ruined world with that musculature because there wouldn't be enough available protein in the world to maintain all that manly muscle mass unless cannibalism was Introduced.

Abby wasn't just terrible for the games narrative but in totality with the media reputation included. If that wasn't so tarnished the fans would have already gotten a 3rd game in the once loved series.

And with that flat chest having Abby as the main character would title the Game The Last of Us Tranz 3 Parts removed

I disagree that max is unlikable. Chloe is infinitely more unlikable in my opinion.

Would love PlayStation Home 2 on PS5 with seamless transitions between different areas.

-Foxtrot1d 13h ago

Yeah, although I’m worried if it does come back idiots will say it’s jumping on the metaverae trend not realising it did this years ago

zeuanimals1d 3h ago

They'd have a hard time doing that if it's called Playstation Home 2. That raises the question of what the first one was.

Si-Fly20h ago

You’ll enjoy life much more if you stop worrying about what other people think :)

darthv721d 12h ago VR2 would be awesome as well.

Godmars2901d 4h ago

Given you're talking about online speeds and connectivity, not the PS5 itself, you're not escaping loading screens.

Tacoboto1d 4h ago

SSD speeds so quick you could open a door in PS Home to walk your Avatar through a portal to launch a game.

They could do something like Peach's Castle in Mario 64 and your library of titles are the portraits

ChiefofLoliPolice1d 2h ago

Agreed wholeheartedly. Playstation Home was amazing!

ThEusAisPoisonous23h ago

You’re being silly. It was stupid as shit.

Second Life did that before everyone.

it had alot of potential.

Inverno1d 4h ago

There's still IMVU and Second Life but they're not quite like PS Home. Btw folks the Home restoration project is still going and they have brought Home back online through the PS3 emulator. So if y'all interested in goin back HOME there's that.
