Holiday Gaming Guide: What to Buy for the Discriminating Gamer - PlayStation 3

From Blogcritics:

"The PlayStation 3 has struggled to gain a market foothold in its first year since launching worldwide last fall; price concerns, development delays and lost exclusives have plagued the electronics giant. This holiday season Sony is coming out swinging, with massive price cuts on their large 80GB model and a newly introduced $399 40GB model, they are ready to enter the ring again with a second wind. To further improve their chances, they are slated to launch a number of notable exclusives (Uncharted, Ratchet & Clank, Haze, Eye of Judgement) in the next month that are sure to attract a lot of new consumers to the PS3 this year. It is becoming a good time to be a PS3 owner and this holiday season a lot of gamers will be very happy."

No life and no girlfriend..... But its ok because HE has three Ps3`s.

The original article was about both consoles. It was balanced and gave information for both. Yet the report on N4g HAD to take sides.
Why did you only quote the PS3 link, JC?

And what's more, the headline is just meant to annoy 360ers and is geekpr0n for PS3ers..

That's just getting a bit common here. Flamebait. Pathetic.
call that a story JC? I was expecting more from you.

jcgamer4059d ago (Edited 4059d ago )

you don't even know what you're talking about...this is part 2 of a most likely 3 part story...the 360 story, part 1, was already submitted to N4G...part 3 will probably be about the Wii...what makes this article flamebait? Because it is an objective, positive look at the PS3...and Neurotoxin better be referring to the picture cause he sure as hell ain't referring to me...I turn down more 'action' than most guys act like I care if you are disappointed...I don't write the articles...

jcgamer4059d ago (Edited 4059d ago )

Because saying you expect more from me means that I post good articles, which I feel that I do...I actually wanted to submit both articles, but the 360 one was written earlier and already submitted...I try to remain as fair and objective as possible on N4G and I am doing the best I can...when Mass Effect starts having a wealth of articles next month I'll be back to being accused of being a 360 "fanboy"...too funny...

jcgamer4059d ago

I'm here because I love games and being a gamer...this article was about a wealth of good games that happen to be exclusive or nonexclusive to the PS3...that's how I see it...

karlostomy4059d ago (Edited 4059d ago )

For someone who doesn't care what i think you sure gave me a lot of replies. But hey i like that. Repartee! Yippee!

I noticed my 'ignore by' list has increased. lol funny what happens when i say what needs to be said. At least i don't sit on the fence and thereby accumulate bubbles. lol...

OK enough gibberish
JC. On the whole your posts and articles are excellent.

BUT the gist of MY comment was: why didnt you post the correct heading (See below) which would clearly indicate that your story is only part of a greater whole. As it was.... sorry, it just is another PS3 fan/flame headline.

Other articles have done this correctly already eg:
"top ten developers of all time - #6 Electronic arts"

Consider then, the flamebait version of the above headline
"Top developer of all time - Electronic arts"

and now consider yours:
"Holiday Gaming Guide: What to Buy for the Discriminating Gamer - PlayStation 3"

Perhaps your headline should have been:
"Holiday Gaming Guide: What to Buy for the Discriminating Gamer - Part 2/3: Playstation 3".

I hope you see the point i am making, JC.

jcgamer4059d ago

so disregard the rant N4G' a misunderstanding...

Kuest4059d ago

Very well... As you wish, JC.

people always use this example "which came first the chicken or the egg"??
isnt it obvious? the chicken makes eggs first but then the cycle continue!
its like saying who came first adam and even or their children!!
i think the egg and chicken example is a good question for children but not normal adult!!

ruibing4060d ago

Hard to argue that its right now the best time to buy one with all the best exclusives coming out and many more to follow early next year.

bluebrad19744059d ago

If a gamer wants the best games, they need a 360, not a ps3.

desperate much?? your 3FIXME had it's 15 minutes and now it's time for the King to take the spotlight.

KidMakeshift4059d ago

Uncharted and Haze are it's only exclusives this holiday season. White Knight Story is supposedly coming out in Japan in December.
Assassin's Creed, Call Of Duty 4, Guitar Hero, and Rock Band are on both the PS3 and 360.

I'm not bashing in anyway. I just wish they pushed Lair and Heavenly Sword to November/December to better sales and give the developers some extra time to fix the minor blimishes that plaque those games.

Next year could be huge if Final Fantasy 13 comes out. Grand Theft Auto 4 and Metal Gear Solid 4 are coming out in Spring, but could be pushed to fall.
