Sony Taking The PS3 Back To The PS2 Glory Days

Remember when it didn’t matter whether or not your PS2 was as technically sound as the original Xbox or Gamecube. All most gamer cared about was content. As long as gamers were able play the best games on the planet in large quantities, which the PS2 had an endless supply of, due to first party and other party exclusives, that’s all that mattered. Like the saying goes, content is king

darthv722873d ago

just keep the barbie horse adv and all that other "casual" crap that helped sell the ps2 away from the ps3.

Mr Tretton2873d ago

darth, why would they keep that casual stuff away from the PS3? It helps make money to help the PS3 overall. It's just third parties cashing in on the system, you don't have to play those games you know?

SaberEdge2873d ago

I honestly don't think I have ever seen an exclusive lineup as good as 2011 is shaping up to be for the PS3. I'm going to be broke. :)

I think the PS3 is starting to surpass the PS2 in terms of exclusive games. Sony's outdone themselves.

phatak2873d ago

whose winning goty next year? lbp 2, nah its gonna be kz3, actually its resistance 3, no way its agent, shut up its the last guardian, screw u its ratchet and clank all 4 one, hell no its motorstorm apocalypse, its yakuza 4 , u crazy its my man jaffes twisted metal,its my shooter socom 4,what about infamous 2? actually its the king of kings uncharted 3 baby!!!!

sleepy32873d ago

Only game i'm looking forward to on that list is Twisted Metal cause i'm interested to see a next gen take ona vehicle combat game.

Other than that, I will try a demo of KZ3 to see if i like the ocntrols, that's all that kept me from the 1st one. Won't buy uncharted though, i don't like 3rd person games, be they uncharted, MGS, Gears of war i just can't stand 3rd person games. They feel so stiff to me. the rest of those games aren't my cup of tea.

But surely you don't only play exclusives. Lets not forget we COULD have GTA5 next year and I will take that above anything else coming out that's for sure.

Pumbli2873d ago

sleepy3 - So you play GTA4 in 1st person...?

Can't imagine it's comfortable, I've always preferred the 3rd person view in the more recent GTA games. Of course you wouldn't agree since you don't play 3rd person games... or do you? I'm confused.

sleepy32873d ago (Edited 2873d ago )

GTA is the only 3rd person game i play. simply because of the craziness of it, lol. The characters are so over the top and the radio alone you can just turn on and laugh at the people calling in. Its an experience. And the best part is, there are no real platforming and little combat. most of it, well the way i play, is just driving around and seeing what trouble i can get into.

San andreas was ridiculous the way you could get lost doing stuff that had nothing to do with the game.

games like Gears and Uncharted force me to play a game a certain way in a perspective that i don't like. If you gonna make me play that way, at least let me do what i want and make it fun and funny.

Ken Kutaragi was a visionary who was ahead of his time! I see all the 360 fans are in the NPD thread. Cant blame them really, they dont have games to brag about so they brag about the next best thing.. Sales

Shutupandplay.. You are absolutly right. Since its all about sales im going to trade in my Mercedes for a Honda Civic, im trading in my inception blu ray for Avatar, im trading in my iphone for a blackberry, im trading in my ps3 for a wii, im trading in my 55 inch samsung 3Dtv for a 32 inch Vizio.

Im doing all this for obvious reasons. The product that sells the most is better.. Duh

shutupandplay2873d ago

Because when you can`t brag about sales, you puff your chest over the games. I`m all about games as much as anybody, but the fact is: PS3 is the loser this generation. Sales determines the winner, sales are the most important aspect.

The PS3 is getting stomped, big time. It`s being shunned, pushed aside, overshadowed, nobody cares.

thebudgetgamer2873d ago (Edited 2873d ago )

you say you dont care yet everyday here you are spouting the same crap. seems too me that you care so much it makes you angry.

edit: drake 360 fan /= shutupandplay.

CernaML2873d ago

Go back to Youtube, GeneralMLD.

mrWiebie902873d ago

umm no ps3 is selling faster than the xbox 360 and will soon pass it

and sales don't matter too much as long as profits are being made and there's still support for the system

Parapraxis2873d ago

shutupandplay ...shut up and play

khushand2873d ago

360 fans seem hurt that the PS3 is catching up to their sorry excuse for a system

thebudgetgamer2873d ago

it doesnt bother me at all i thinks it's great all three consoles have a nice install base.

GarandShooter2873d ago

Why you sweatin it? MS's junk will taste just the same in your mouth whether the PS3 passes the 360 or not, and will have no affect on your decision to spit or swallow.

No worries for you either way.

danthegardner2873d ago

Pfffffftttt more like shutupanddie jk/ but not really

I care and that's not nobody. Sales do matter a great deal, but to me, and to a whole lot of other people, the games are easily the most important thing when it comes to videoGAMES.

Sony has games up the butt next year, that doesn't mean 360 or Wii don't have good games lined up for 2011. You just have to realize that people are happy with the ps3 and its offerings. I will be overjoyed when 2011 is over and I get to play amazing ps3 games.

Also when you can't brag about games, the most important thing about gaming, you are too busy playing your videoSALES. Have fun in 2011.

PirateThom2873d ago

Jesus, Microsoft really has deluded you people.

Sales > games?

What the hell is that crap?

This might be a better site for you.

firefoxprime2873d ago (Edited 2873d ago )

So what if the ps3 is getting stomped? As long as awesome content is being released, thats all we as the "consumers" should care about.

What are you here for? Bragging rights?

pff...please.

Comeback when you can give me a real reason as how sales is going to positively affect "your" life/wellbeing.

Nitrowolf22873d ago (Edited 2873d ago )

Shutupandplay

since you like sales so much, do a comparison of year to year, so pS3 first year, and 360 first year all the way to the last 360 completed year (because PS3 year isn't completed comparing that way). You will see that the PS3 is selling at a faster rate then the 360 is.

Why do this comparison?
because all of a sudden it has become acceptable with MOVE Versus Kinect, to be not fair to compare MOVE sales from Launch to Kinect Launch, because it had a headstart before Kinect and thus makes that type of comparison invalid (according to many).
