Things are looking tough for Sony: redundancies, missed shipment targets, poor financial results; so what's a giant mega-corporation to do? Take advice from bloggers, of course:
from what they said, I'm surprised that they are a Playstation only site.
what a bullf*ck... seriously, who on earth needs this rubbish articles??
feed the article you help support the talk, leave be.
what is the deal with all these "10 things so can do" or "5 things" they are getting as old as the romurs about MGS & FF move on for crying out load. We all know sony can do things to up there sales we all have are own Ideas so why post the same words an things just put in dif. ways. 5 things microsoft needs to do to save xbox: - Find way to fix the disc scratching - Find way to fix ring of death (everyones fav.) - Don't go with the idea of make a new console every 2 years - Stop trying to force xbox owners to have or somehow be one with vista - Stop charging for every little thing These are not flames these are real problems xbox has that no one every talks about an when someone does fanboys come in an b!tch about how they are not true an deny any of it. I own both x360 & ps3 an from what I can see BOTH consoles have a lot of problems an needed to be fixed or changed but making dumb posts every few days wont change anything.
No one was talking about the 360. The article didn't talk about the 360. Why are you? Microsoft is beating the pants off of Sony because they made better moves, or rather, they made less bad ones than Sony. Try, if you can, to put your bias aside and talk about Sony. That's what this article was about, and discussing what's wrong with the 360 in a thread about the PS3 smacks of fanboy-ness. Seriously.
Did you even read what I said or the article THIS IS OLD NEWS nothing but a reworded copy of what was said in the 5 articles about "10 things sony can do to change ps3" an being a fanboy about what I said shows because all you thought I said was xbox suks. Well if you even took the time to read what I said then you would see there are things xboxs needs to fix as well I said nothing about who is winning what so ever so pull you mouth from microsofts tit an read the full thing next time.
hahah dodgefate...you should have known that ownership has nothing to do with being able to express your opinions...If you own a 360 and are not happy with it, you still can't say anything...without being branded a Sony fanboy...If you are unhappy with your PS3 and you say it...people are like "yeah you should be"...but never ever under any circumstances bring up YOUR 360 and what you don't like about it...especially in a thread that your owning both puts up a slight defense for this article...
nicely said. @ dodgefate well about your comment (#4) just got to say yeh we all know what can be done to help with all the consoles, but the thing that gets my attention is that a PS3 only site has posted this, also just wanna say why do you bring up the things about the Xbox 360? we are not talking about it, and well like you have said in your report "this is talked about 100 of times but put in dif words not anything new" so why not just leave it and ignore this thread
this article should have been reported
its has been reported but people clicked "approve" anyway.
well from what i have seen only dodgefate has pressed report, so that means that more people thinks that this should be approved, and i for one think that this is actually quite interesting that a PS3 only site has said these points.
REALLY i've had it with these f*cking articles on what something needs to do be saved or to sell more.. common how many PS3 sh*tty articles about this have been posted?? I'm not saying all this cause I'm a PS3 fan, is just that we already know and is pretty clear what the PS3 needs to do already..
Here is what sony needs to do. Get on developers/buy developers to get content out in stores. Lower production costs/keep quality good/pass savings to customers Not listen to everyone...including me. (But I am wise). Get Rumble back...soon. Shut the hell up and deliver.
Who cares, if Sony doesn't care about saving themselves, then why should you (The blogger). They are in this position due to management errors they have made. Everyone working there should be competent enough to decide the next strategy. In my honest and humble opinion, they have a good chance to redeem themselves at E3. It's their last chance at getting people excited for their console at this stage in the console war.
10 things xbots need to do to get a life! 1.Stop b*tching about games you can't have! 2.Stop crying about how the PS3 is superior, its not our fault you bought a crap box 360! 3.Stop claiming you have the best games, you know its a lie! 4.Stop claiming Live is superior, you pay & don't even get dedicated servers! 5.Stop trying to copy Sony! 6.Stop trying to be cool like Sony fans! 7.Stop pretending like you know about gaming! 8.Stop b*tching about motion controls, you know you want it! 9.Stop paying inflated prices for MS crap, $179 for a $50 hard drive! 10.Stop playing on that defective equipment, and get a PS3! wolfgang: I'm not threatened at all. I think its the other way around. The little xbots are scared about Sony games thats why they want em, fake letters about MGS, fake videos about MGS, making articles on what SE means by a "blank page" its pathetic attempts by little xbots, to justify that broken down crap they bought. Sorry Sony fans know whats coming, we don't complain! So go play you crap box360, oh! did it break down again! Sorry, you should have bought a PS3!
you sure feel insecure buddy :) This is just another crappy "how to fix ps3" post like the other dozens we've seen these past few days. You shouldn't feel so threatened by it or by the 360.
Firewire you sir are a moron.
just because the PS3 is more powerful doesn't mean anything if there are no games. and what are you doing? Playing motostorm or resistance for the 1000th time? Have fun man. You should have waited to buy your PS3, thats what i'm doing. My 360 is giving me a lot of entertainment. If anything, i think you might be a little jealous(and just get a good warranty just in case, for any console for that matter). Just think PS2 crapped out(crapped out on me twice and i recently got rid of it) on a lot of people, but it had a lot of great games, sounds familiar? "So go play you crap box360, oh! did it break down again! Sorry, you should have bought a PS3!?" To play nothing? Thanks ill pass It sounds like the PS3 and 360 are in the same boat then. 1 doesn't have games, and the other has games but you cant always play them because of 360 breaking(answer get a good warranty, you should for anything, my PS2 problems didn't deter me from playing it). about xbl, its cheaper than buying 1 new game a year, thats nothing, even for someone who doesn't have much money. "Stop trying to copy Sony!" Dude are you so blind that you don't realize that all companies copy each other. How many rehashed games has sony made or any company for that matter? "6.Stop trying to be cool like Sony fans!" like you? Sorry, i want to communicate with girls and stuff and im a fan of all console not just one "7.Stop pretending like you know about gaming!" like you do? If you really did , you wouldn't be a fanboy "8.Stop b*tching about motion controls, you know you want it!" Why not i just get a Wii for 250 then? Both don't seem to have games right now. "9.Stop paying inflated prices for MS crap, $179 for a $50 hard drive!" I can see what you are saying there, but how many people are actually doing that? 10.Stop playing on that defective equipment, and get a PS3! To play only a few games? Why not i take the risk and have a little more fun? There went my rant. Wow, i usually don't do that. Stop being such a fanboy got it? Thank you But anyways the PS3 will do fine, but right now, the 360 and PS3 have issues like it or not. Don't get me wrong the PS3 will probably outdo the 360 in about a year, but i want to play games now. One thing i do agree with you Firewire is the fake MGS stories, those were annoying.
You're sure worried about the 360 huh! oh by the way that article was about the PS3 you have your right to your view but dont't bash another system you are way off base from the article. The PS3 needs some killer apps. real soon
"Sorry Sony fans know whats coming, we don't complain! " Well judging from your history of comments this is a lie as you spread the comments section with rants like this one. Also I'm a Sony fan (and a ninty and ms fan, see I'm a gamer) and I complaint because if there is something wrong, I want it fixed. For exemple I complained about the lack of rumble and now there is talk to bring it back to the ps3. Complaining isn't always about fanboyism, sometimes its about getting more for your money. You keep using the term "xbot". To me this is a sign of weakness as you can convince the other side so you last resort is names calling, when out of arguments, go for the name calling, so mature. How do you fell when little kids use "fony", "pissstation" "nintendont" ? Do that make you understand their point of view ?
I think the lack of games has affected firewire's brain hes growing impatient and hostile. Insulting people who own a console that actually has games and exclusives that grow by the day.
The article does seem a little over the top. The PS3 only needs 2 things to get going, both of which everyone already knows, namely a lower price and more games to actually be on store shelves (as opposed to in development or "coming soon", whatever that means).
This article should have been posted on anti sony site as its really bilittling ps3. So much for being PSPSPS site. Poor chaps are frustrated by the treatment from sony and who can blame them.
And I stand by what I said originally. BTW, I own a PS2 and 360, plus the Wii. I would love to have Sony compete this round, but they need games and a lower price. Keep on losing those bubbles.
Sometimes I don't understand why Sony fanboys get upset about article like this. If the article is bias and stupid nothing will change. If there is something that Sony can work on to improve the system or server, isn't this the only way they will find out? When people make noise about it? Are you sure you want all articles about the PS3 to be happy and perfect? Is this the message that you want to get about the PS3? "Sony, you made a perfect system and we are perfectly happy with it. Focus on your next project since there is no improvements to be made and while you are at it... don't worry about a price drop, we are completely fine with it." I am sure that's what fanboys would write to Sony... but then again... whe did fanboys improve anything in the game industry?
1.we all know the price should come down. 2.we know exclusives are coming.they just take longer to make.and that includes all three systems. 3.forget quirky?how dumb is that?that means:no lbp,no home,no eyetoy,no ico or sotc,no singstar,no loco roco,no flow,etc,etc,etc.it's like saying you want what we have been playing for decades: racing fighting shooting i think i want more that that for games. 4.the system is already cool tech.and the psp added to it is even cooler.and the executives that caused a lot of flaming articles no longer speak as much or at all for sony. 5.and lastly,selling 25 million psps is no joke.especially when nintendo owned 99% of the portable market.everyone else failed and bailed out.but sony is still there and selling psps. ANOTHER DUMB ARTICLE.
ppl need to stop post about what ps3 need to do.They r doing fine and will get better in time DUMB ASS Article ppl that keep posting crap like this Got fear of the ps3.
and kill all the doornobs who write this drivel. PROBLEM SOLVED!!
1. P 2. R 3. I 4. C 5. E CUT (funny how everyone in everywhere screams after price cut, but Sony does what?... nothing) EDIT: @snoop, well yes they would loose more money per every console sold. Hmmm.. I personally would not buy PS3 with its current price unless they really really can show a game that is not even nearly doable with 360. When it happens (if ever) it might just be too late. OR much more good games than what 360 has atm.
they are selling their console for less than what its worth. So if they drop the price it will make it worse. First we need games. Once MGS4 Lair, maybe Killzone drops, ill be willing to shell out 600 but only if there are games. And anyways how big would the price drop even be? at most a 100. This is an opportunity For Msoft and Nintendo to drop their prices around 150 dollars.
PS3 does need little big planet and more "quirky" (read: innovative, compelling, all inviting, rated E for everyone (but not kiddy)) titles. Whoever wrote that is a complete moron. Also, I don't think Sony should forget about the PSP and go mobile. What a retard. PSP still has plenty of life left, it can last more than the DS. Sony should keep making the PSP more functional with wireless networks and enable video and music on demand for it, and to connect with your PS3 wherever you are in the world. Also, make the PSP have its own "home" and downloadable content. That's how you save the PSP. Going mobile would be a retarded move, at least right now. In 3-5 years, maybe not. The only things I agree that sony has to do is drop to $400 dollars WORLDWIDE (or at least not cost a lot more than that in europe), hurry in dropping costs of PS3 making, and hurry with their own exclusives. Don't pay for 3rd party exclusives (except FF and MGS)-instead, keep making first party exclusives. Use its cellius venture with namco. Invest in innovative projects. Create new studios with new talent (like with media molecule). And last but not least, make it a true media hub with services like home, singstar, and video on demand. So, to sum it up, sony just needs to HURRY. Hurry with: 1. Price-dropping (cost-dropping) 2. Games 3. Services. That's it. Since games and services are already on the pipeline and just need to be hurried (not rushed), the only fundamental thing to be done, which isn't a sure thing, but should be made is PRICE DROP. Not immediately, but a little bit after (or beforE) Halo 3 come out. Not price dropping would be a stupid mistake. It could be a horrible gamble, but the payoff would be winning a console war and a format war, not simply a console war. After all, a lot of people are just wating for Sony to drop their price to get a PS3; they don't care about Wii or 360.
it's just common sense. more games.lower system price.great services. course,i think it's great right now.anything else added to me is just icing on the cake.
some good points in this article, and like snoop_dizzle said (#1) i am suprised that they said this as there a PS3 only site.
I only read PSM, and they made the PS3's lackluster sales seem way better than they actually were. The only way that Sony's actually going to DO something about the mess they've created is if people speak up about it and vote with their dollars (if they haven't gotten the message already, then they're pretty dense). If you just buy the console even though you're pissed off at Sony for having lost all those exclusives, made all those bad PR mistakes and run a terrible advertising campaign, then you're just a fanboy who'll buy Sony stuff no matter what... and Sony won't change (so I hope you enjoy having no games to play and HOME on the horizon as the next big thing). I'm no Sony hater. But I'm not going back to PS3 while Microsoft is doing a way better job at keeping me satisfied as a gamer. No company's perfect (360 rings of death anyone?), but Sony seems to think that they can sell their overpriced console based solely on the fact that the PS2 was such a success. Well, now they're lying in the bed they've made and whether you're a PS3, Wii or 360 fan, the sales numbers don't lie.
MGS4 and FF are not enough to change an already set trend sure they will sell consoles but that will not!; all of a sudden flip the state of the indutry around in its favor to dominate as the lead platform PS3 will sell in third place and once the games come it won't be patheticly selling as it has only months after its launch.
People are jumping ship when it comes to support faster than Pirates on the Black pearl running from Davy Jones and his pet; not even game shop employee's deffend it with sale's pitch motives anymore theres no point, this KID that posted #4.2 is no 360 owner judging from his past posts. You said: - Find way to fix the disc scratching - Find way to fix ring of death (everyones fav.) - Don't go with the idea of make a new console every 2 years - Stop trying to force xbox owners to have or somehow be one with vista - Stop charging for every little thing I Say: * Fix drives indeed: MS has to weed out the bad drives they're working on that. * MS's warrenties are in place yes it sucks the 360's more sensitve to its enviroments(keep it cool so the Mother board does not warp breaking the link to its chips, pray you dont get a bad drive from a certain factory that has unreadable disc errors) * Don't release a console every two years you say!, the PS3 will be on it's third SKU in a couple of months with a Home intertainment system to follow it, thats four in a few years. * force 360 users to do what with Vista? whatever they're doing i'm sure its not as extream as the Blu-ray push. * As long as i'm not paying for demo's i'm fine. You say no ones talking about the problems you listed" are you fucin retarded bro?. 360 fans always bash having to pay for sh*t like Horse Armor, they also complian about the rings of red not to mention this site and its Sony fanboys post anything they can find on the subject as if the 360 forums say nothing about it also LOL!. I could go on and on This threads about PS3 future as marketing and stradigies go.
Noone need to be saved. Even first xbox was able to sell 24 mln. And also got port of MGS2, GTA3. after 1 year, maybe even after a month, peopel will see the difference between ps3 and x360. And only then will think, who need to be saved. =)) p.s. anyway, i am curiuos how NG2 and H3 will look.
Is that Sony placed Blu ray first and gamers second. You heard the arrogance " We can sell 5 million PS3s with no games." And for the most part they were right. People don't seem to realize that the real battle is between Sony and Toshiba. Microsoft is more of a hindrance. Sonys biggest money maker is their games division, they want to change that with pushing Bluray technology in the PS3. Bluray isn't needed for games, they just want to sell their Blu ray movies through the PS brand name. Its a lot easier to introduce a new product(Bluray movies) through an already established one(playstation). If they wouldn't have tried to push Bluray on the public the PS3 most likely would have been a success. This is an interesting article that explains these points very clearly................ http://www.next-gen.biz/ind...
Remember when Cartridges were the only way to play videogames? It lasted for the longest time. 3 generation of nintendo machines had a cartridge format. Then what Happen? Systems like the Saturn and PS1 followed and the games and audio that where seen on these machines where sharper and overall more pleasing. Then Followed by the PS2(which used DVD's) and even even the dreamcast which used a GBD-rom. Progression needs to take place in order for a system to have a long life. Right now, NO! Blu-Ray is not needed for games, Games like Gears of War have proven that a great game can still fit on a DVD. But games like Blue-Dragon (wether your gonna buy it or not) are gonna show that a DVD just isn't big. No matter if it doesn't bother you to get up and change the disc the fact that it still has to be done is not very next(this)-gen. How much longer does the DVD format have left in it when it comes to being a gaming format? Nobody knows for sure. But progression in this industry has always been the main factor in what keeps a company afloat. Nintendo destoryed all that will come up until they said:"CD-rom is not needed for games" Now what? they are relagated to trying to appease to the sub-culture of gaming to turn a profit. So far all the moves made by all console manufactures EXCEPT for Sony have shown to be paying off. Xbox is the leader and the Wii has found itself a position to acutally hold the lead for a while if it keeps selling like it is. But in a Console race that could very well be longer then the norm due to the ever increasing cost of production a system that is ready for longer then 7 years might just be able to win. But then again if this generation last as long or even shorter then pervious generation then the inclusion of future ready media was/is the biggest mistake that sony could've made.
