Hello Games: “Sony Fanboys are the Best Fanboys”

The small, independant studio behind the popular PSN game Joe Danger has had quite the success story. Joe Danger was Hello Games’ first big selling title that managed to break even on day one and has been still “selling well” since.

Without having to spend any extra money on advertising Sean Murray at Hello Games credits positive word of mouth for the sales of their stunt-racer. He also thanks Sony and Sony’s fanbase.

Hello Games: “Sony Fanboys are the Best Fanboys”

they'Re the Lamest aswell.


get at me.

StanLee3296d ago

If by best they mean the worst; I'd be inclined to agree.

If by lame you mean the group of guys who get to play the likes of MGS4, Uncharted 2 and GOW3, then youre free to call me lame as much as you want. LOL.

My definition of lame: guys who believe that sales > games.

"god forbid that you actually give a opinion that doesn't favor the might ps3"

That's because most of those that do, try to do it in a most offensive way.

Here's a good example. Go to the article about the free saturday movie rental article, and look at comment #15. Some people do that purposely.

People use the excuse of "it's my opinion". That may be true, and everyone is entitled to it. However it's when you throw your own opinion as complete and total fact, or just to act like a douche.

Hell I've made statements against all companies, but I at least put logic and thought behind it.


Change fanboys to "everyone there is goofballs". :p

the thing is i remember 2years ago when this site was rampant with vicious rabid microsoft lapdogs, approving every anti PS3 pro 360 article, it was for that reason why i didn't join this site until last year.And if you don't like N4G any more swing over to G4 and Kotaku, i here those sites are infested with 360 fanboys,.

DORMIN3296d ago

LMAO A lot of 360 fanboys sound butthurt.

That's where you are wrong. I will use Uncharted 2 as an example because it works perfectly for the users on this site. I've owned the game, I've completed it, I've played the multiplayer. If I post that I don't think Uncharted 2 was the best game ever, or even a great game, I will be called a lair, Xbox fanboy, you can't like a game if you don't own a PS3, stupid, ignorant, butthurt, just for not liking a certain game. Personally I didn't think Uncharted 2 was a great game, it was good, and kinda fun, but nothing special. Now I know people will disagree with me, especially on this site, but the offensive ones are the PS3 fanboys when I post something like that. They start attacking me with some of the comments above, if not more, because I don't bow down to Uncharted 2 or ND.

It's one thing to not like PS3 fanboys, or think they are crybabies, morons, etc, but the PS3 itself is not a piece of shit. I love my PS3, and I support Sony by buying their games and purchasing content from PSN. There is a difference between a PS Fan who supports Sony by buying their products and using their services, and a PS3 fanboy, who dick rides everything that comes out of Sony's mouth, or every exclusive they put on the market.

snp3296d ago (Edited 3296d ago )

For a bunch of guys that claim not to like 'Sony fanboys' you sure do like doing all you can to stir them up. Though it's not, of course, because you yourselves are 'fanboys' (cough). Never!

No, you're all misunderstand champions of free speech, and bringers of truth etc victimised by an evil tyrannical lynch mob.

First thing to ask yourself is why you're even in this - a pretty much purely Sony related - thread... (winks) If you can honestly answer that, we'll all come back and work on step two.

ed: As to article, the use of 'fanboys' was unfortunate really (because of unnecessary connotations) . It is good news to hear this dev say he has had a positive experience with a 'tight Ps3 community' (what i think he meant) and it's potential to spread word of mouth and help sell/get recognition for quality product.

Boody-Bandit3296d ago

All I could picture was Kevin Butler (with his chest out and standing proud while doing his E3 speech) while I was reading your post.

radphil3296d ago (Edited 3296d ago )


Hence why I said most......not all.

Heartnet3295d ago

If every1 on here is a ps3 fanboy doenst that say something for sony lol? that maybe just maybe that their console is superior?

Obviously not to you lol who thinks that every1 who comes here is a ps3 fanbody which must mean urself included so ur bitching about urself.. sad really :)

HolyOrangeCows3295d ago

You know what's lamer? Going into every article and crying about the supposedly overwhelming amount of Ps3 fanboys on N4G, despite the first 10 comments being the same thing.

ShinMaster3295d ago (Edited 3295d ago )

To troll them.

These places were full 360 fanboys constantly hating on the PS3.
Hasn't changed much, but ever since the end of the PS3's first year, we've had more and more reasons to praise the PS3.
Old arguments against it just won't stand.

That's why 360 fanboys hate N4G. And that's why they're the worst fanboys, sometimes resorting to blurting out nonsensical and many times off-topic statements.

Look at the "Forza 3 Ultimate Edition" article where some people showed just a little bit of disapproval for Turn10's action and got marked for trolling. Tons of people did. More people get away with trolling on PS3 articles than they do on 360 articles. They wouldn't even let their own disagree just slightly.

The BEST may be pushing it a tad but we are the most mature thats for sure.

seinfan3296d ago

Mature like a MILF? If not, gtfo.

8-bit3296d ago (Edited 3296d ago )

Haha thanks seinfan for proving -Ikon-'s point.

FiftyFourPointTwo3296d ago

weak comeback seinfan. not only its weak, its corny too.

visualb3296d ago

since a MILF can be 18 years old (18 year olds can be mothers and hot as well, yet not mature)


MILF =/= mature....

@ Ikon - no fanboys are mature

Crystallis3296d ago just proved Ikon point..

seinfan3296d ago (Edited 3296d ago )

I'm just a wii/motion hater. Fools!

My comment wasn't meant to include all moms that are good. Just the older ones.

Snakefist303296d ago

Theres also a 16yr old MILF too.

raztad3296d ago

Well besides the usual troll (unavoidable) most fellow PS3 fans I've meet are nice and mature people that support PS3 exclusive games. Look how niche titles like Deamons Souls, Valkyrie Chronicles have sold out of word of mouth.

Trebius3296d ago

and their children the 360.

PS3 is a big boy toy.

plenty a tool3296d ago

i think that people that suffer from fanboy syndrome see things differently

how you can write stuff like this with a straight face is beyond me

vsr3295d ago

Sony fanboys always love their products. They are the only example for the Brand loyalty in the gaming history and industry. Other brands are temporary success.

The Xbox Empire3296d ago

They're also the most butthurt

bustamove3296d ago

Very ironic that you would mention that when the dame thing is done regarding the 360. The minute someone criticizes anything on the 360, there's a rampage to take that person's bubbles or disagree with them.

PS3_lifer3295d ago

Go Joe Danger! Congrats Hello Games you deserve it!

TheLastGuardian3295d ago

I'm not a fanboy, I'm a fan of good technology.

Sony3603295d ago

"...if you're making a sony product".

To everyone else in the world, they're the most obnoxious, overly defensive fantards you'll find anywhere.

"Everyone knows that Sony fanboys are the best fanboys. [laughs]

They’re the most hardcore!

They’ve been really supportive – they, hopefully, seem to associate Hello Games with a top title on PSN, and that’s a big thing for us, a huge deal."


It's a compliment, lol.

Anyways, congrats on Joe Danger.

Bereaver3296d ago

But recently, they have been less than supportive with GT5.


I'm still a supporter.

visualb3296d ago

I believe a supporter of a company / developer should get angry and make noise if they are dissatisfied

however, no need to go trolling GT5 and PD, delays happen, lets not be passive, but lets not be idiots either

HeroXIV3296d ago

It's true. We are the best.

TheLastGuardian3295d ago

Did you know Hello Games is made up of only 4 guys. They are probably sony fanboys themselves.

Hands Up For Games3296d ago

Fans are brilliant.

Fanboys are a Cancer on our favourite past time.

Sez 3296d ago

This is true for both Sony/MS fanboys not fans.

The Wood3296d ago (Edited 3296d ago )

we can all act a little fanboyish sometimes but most of the time we keep that gremlin in check. ANYBODY who says they've never said something fanboyish or had fanboyish thoughts is a liar. Nothing wrong with a bit of banter but there needs to be a limit. Total fanboys are or act totally one sided, some for kicks some for loyalty some through ignorance...There are many types on all sides

Also there seems to be some issue with whoever being loyal to a certain brand or another....loyalty isnt a bad quality to have or show. Its when that loyalty breeds contempt for those not akin to the same beliefs/thoughts or when its at the detriment of ones self/finances/sanity when a good trait becomes bad

Otheros003296d ago (Edited 3296d ago )

That's weird I thought they will compare ps3 fanboys with other kinds of fanboys and how they are better.

So much for ps3 games don't sell And so much for ps3 owners don't support devs.
