Just two days after Sony disappointed its European Playstation fans by delaying the launch of the PS3 in Europe until March 2007, Microsoft and Nintendo gave them more reasons to buy another system instead - as if they needed one.
since it's coming from a PS3 fansite.
the rats leaving the ship?
Yet more anti-PS3 opinion stuff being posted as news. Why is this posted under the PS3 section of news4gamers.com unless it was intended to stir up crap?
Mostly, because it was "reported" by a PS3 site. Also, because you can no longer deny Sony's problems. Just recently: -BluRay laser manufacturing issues. -No HDMI cables. -No 1080p anywhere near launch. -Exclusivity loss (Assassin's Creed, etc) -Euro pushback -Possible severe lack of dev units The list just goes on and on. PS3 sites are reporting the bad news because, well, that's the news. If PS3 was having lots of great announcements, you'd see news items on how Wii60 was saving face. On the flipside, you see how Wii60 triumphs while Sony faces problems. It's fair and balanced coverage, oddly enough.
I think the free week of live has more to do with getting owners of 360s to subscribe to live than it has to do with stealing marketshare. You already get a free month of gold when you buy a 360... this posting is just poking the bee's nest... Hey moderators, are you guys trying to test out your new comments system? :)
not evryone who has a 360 has the live membership....and already used the trial online play...so if they can play one more time free online they maybe get the little push to get a year membership.
I would imagine the main reason for this is the same as the reason people got free gold subscriptions during E3. TGS and X06 are both scheduled during that period and there will be trailers and demos available for free download. Gotta love Xbox Live.
WHACK BLAM RIGHT ACCROSS YOUR SITE PIMP-SLAP. HAHHAA
Right in the kisser!
With another delay announcement by Sony, we're looking at a full year and half (since the 360 debuted) before the worldwide general consumer base has a chance to pick up a PS3. A year and a half?!? Just in terms of timing...Sony has already fallen behind...not just with the PS3 but with their follow up to the PS3. Microsoft seems to have the timing well in hand to debut their next, next gen console well before Sony or Nintendo. Don't underestimate first-to-market as a major key to success. Microsoft seems to be firing on all cylinders while Sony has a bananna in the tailpipe.
