The unthinkable has happened, an Xbox gamer may want to purchase a Playstation 3, all because of the short trailer of The Last Of Us.
Let me get this straight. The author has never wanted a PS3 game? Really? How is that possible?
In the piece he apparently has wanted other PS3 exclusives - cuz who wouldn't? - but for the first time ever one is making him think of purchasing. He resisted this long...but may crumble now. Me? I'm loving my PS3 :)
Crikey, interesting he liked Naughty Dog's game bcoz the first game that made me get the Ps3 was Uncharted 2
me on the other hand I'm still waiting for the first game that makes me want to buy an xbox.. see how easy it is to say stupidities.. On a serious note Fable 2 is the reason why I'll will eventually get one, that and Mass Effect 1 so i can play the other 2 everything else i can live without.
If you are holding our against buying games because they are on another platform then you can hardly call yourself objective, a gamer, or an objective gamer. In the end the only person that you are hurting is yourself.
@morganfell I completely agree with BulletToothtony and I believe neither of us are holding out against buying an Xbox360 because it's on "another console". I would get a Xbox360 ASAP if my financial situation allowed it, but at the moment I have a lot of far more important money sinks and will have to settle with one console for now.
If "The Last of Us" is the first PS3 game you want, then you're an idiot. They haven't even shown gameplay. This article is written for hits, nothing else. That being said, of course everyone is excited about "The Last of Us". Naughty Dog is incredible, the fidelity of the game is incredible...it's a no brainer. Just like several other great PS3 exclusives. @BulletToothtony, I actually AM still waiting for an Xbox game that will make me want an Xbox. I have played some of its "good" ones that have crossed over to PC, and I wasn't impressed. In fact, I didn't finish either Mass Effect. Just not my style of games on that system. I definitely prefer Sony's approach to games, that's for sure.
I still have zero urge to buy a PS3. Community is too f**ked in the head. I love my 360 though. Great community.
People act like you have to own all systems to get the "full" experience...but gaming is different on each system. Saying you aren't a gamer unless you have all systems is like telling someone they're not a movie-goer because they don't like to watch chick flicks or action movies or whatever. It's stupid. There are different systems because people have different tastes. For me, the PS3 tastes like fajitas, and the 360 tastes like leftover tuna casserole. I'll eat the tuna casserole, but I won't pay for it.
Although there are other games I want on PS3, Last of Us by far is the most interesting exclusive beyond God of War and Uncharted to me. Most of the others, I could care less about....
I bought a ps3 because I loved my ps2, the ps3 was backwards compatible, and many of ps2 exclusives would continue on with ps3. Lost Oddessy and Blue Dragon made me get an Xbox360. Then it paid off with Dead Rising 1, Mass Effect, GeOW, and Bethesda games seeming to run better on it Wii I got for Zelda and now it's catching dust until I play the new Zelda.
Its time for the youngster who wrote the article to pull off his Master Chief Helmet and spread his brain.
"Master Chief is my homeboy and I’m down with Mario Kart" I think this says enough about the writer of this article. I am a PS3 fanboy but there are some games I would kill to have from the xbox, the writer is a tool.
Potedude...ur kinda blowing my mind. PS3 is my favorite console ever, but I love mario kart and the the halo series. Does liking thise make me a tool too? Does anybody who likes those games suddenly become a tool in ur eyes? Ur trolling bro. The dude even talks about how awesome he thinks Uncharted looks, but that Last of Us intrigues him even more. if there is a tool atound here it isnt the guy that wrote this this story.
How does liking Halo and enjoying Mario Kart make me a tool? Seriously, I'd really like to know.
In his defense, tools do LOVE Halo and Mario Kart. :) Those aren't bad games though, obviously.
I dont think potedude is trying to say liking those games makes you a tool. I think his point is anyone who likes those games, and obvisouly considers himself a gamer of good games, should have had plenty of reasons to have wanted a PS3 before The Last of Us.
@pat_11_5 --- Your a tool because: (quote from article): "I’ve grown up playing games on Nintendo and Microsoft consoles aam therefore naturally inclined to want to play titles on those systems. .....haven’t wanted a PS3 before this point is extremely hard for many gamers to fathom." You have grown up playing games on Nintendo and Microsoft consoles? Yet never considered a Ps1,PS2,PS3 (fair enough). So I click the link "Why I am not buying a PS3" Dated May 8th 2011 from the same author (You!) Skim through and find out most of the reasons are invalid. http://www.gamejudgment.com... Example (quote) "I’ve heard some titles like Killzone 3 have matchmaking, but I’ve also heard it isn’t as common for games to have it integrated into their online modes" (You got the Ps3 confused with PS2?) "I agree with your comments about LBP2 and Uncharted 2, those two titlesare what makes me want a PS3" (Comment Section, from Author) HOW many games do you really need to justify purchasing a PS3? 1?2? 4? 5? 6? 8? 44? Will we see the same story 2 months from now? Oh "I would totally buy a PS3 for Starhawk" etc.
@Omegasyde Oooh SNAP....
@jimineyscrickets, I said the writer is a tool, not anyone who likes those games. 1. For saying "Master Chief is my homeboy and I’m down with Mario Kart" - like who says that? Seriously. 2. For not having bought a PS3 for this long but still calling himself a serious gamer, or at least considering he is writing for a gaming website he would have to consider himself a serious gamer. 3. For not wanting to play PS3 exclusives. Wow! I certainly wasn't saying anyone who plays those games is a tool, hope you didn't think so.
Got my first PS3 in 2008 when they released the MGS4 bundle for $500. That was the last model they made that could play PS2 games. Unfortunately, it died in October so I bought a new 160GB slim for $250 last month.
I own the Limited Edition MGS4 bundle with the gunmetal grey material. It doesn't have BC either and got neutered by Sony removing OtherOS. Just got Splinter Cell: Trilogy so I need to give it a whirl.
Every time a new PS3 exclusive is announced we get this [Insert PS3 exclusive] will make me buy a PS3... Happened with Uncharted 2, GOW3, Heavy Rain, Killzone 2, etc. There are so many games available by which a person can decide to buy a PS3. Whatever type of gamer you are, there is something for you, so having this article about a game 5 and a half after the PS3 launched, is just lame.
http://www.gamejudgment.com... He already mentioned how he was going to buy it for LBP2 in the comments
The unthinkable has happened, Xbox gamers are still in denial about wanting a PS3
he probably has very very bad taste in games lol... not saying that the last of us is gonna be bad..
Well, he kind of explains it in the story.... he seems to like Nintendo and Xbox franchises the most. Surprisingly he doesn't seem like a fan boy though. I thought this was just going to be another PS3 Sony bashing story and I've seen more than enough of those.
You do know it is possible to want to stick to a certain company not out of fan loyalty, but due to simple history with systems from that company. I'm like this with the PS, first system ever was PS1. I just naturally find my favorite games on the PS and see few other games that are attracting from other companies. This doesn't mean that the others have nothing good about them, just personal choice without a bias.
@rezzah That is exactly what I am saying in this story! Perhaps I should have got you to write it for me haha. @Omegasyde It's hilarious that you've actually gone through a story from a year ago and examined my comments.... In this story I even admit that there are other titles that have caught my attention on the console... You might not agree with my reasons but that doesn't make them invalid. Investing in a new console is a huge financial commitment, one that as a student, there is no way I can afford right now. I need to pick and choose the games I play and purchase, and because I've grown up playing Nintendo and Microsoft games, I'm naturally more inclined to want to play titles on those consoles. Anyway, thanks for commenting.
@pat_11_5 ^^^6 A YEAR AGO! LoL. May 8 2011 was about 6 months ago. We are still in 2011. And you claim financial hard times, in both articles. Which I know personally can strain a gamer's budget. So be it, and personally I hope that you earn enough side money with the website to afford a PS3. The fact still remains. You wanted a PS3 since the beginning of the year based off 2 others games. Now you want to buy a PS3 when off a "trailer" for a game coming out in late 2012 possible 2013. So when the game does get released which is almost a year away, will you have enough money by then? Probably not, because you will buy a Wii-u instead since you have "grown up playing Nintendo and Microsoft games".
Fanboy...No. Confused consumer--yes. http://www.gamejudgment.com...
You do realize you have posted a link to that story three times now.... I think you've made your point many times over. However, It's still very flattering that this story has annoyed you enough to write a few mini-essays on it. I bet that was you that contacted me on Twitter as well? Perhaps if you actually read both stories you'd understand how I feel about buying a PlayStation 3. I'm a student, and I run GameJudgment simply because I love gaming. Currently we make no money off the website, although we have in the past. I don't have a lot of expendable income or time, so I really need to pick and choose the titles I play. Of course if you actually read both stories objectively, and somehow managed to prevent your self from raging about the fact that I still don't own a PS3, you would already know that. In heinsight maybe The Last Of Us story's headline was a little misleading. PS3 games have caught my attention before (I even mention this in the story) but I haven't seen a title yet that's made me willing to make me throw down hundreds of dollars on a console that I can't afford and probably won't have the time to play. I'm not bashing the machine and I never have, I'd honestly love to own one and I may pick one up shortly after boxing day. I saw a cool trailer of a game I liked, so I wrote about it - this story boils down to that and that alone. Don't read into anymore than that and if you don't like opinionated blogging, don't read it. It's really as simple as that, there's no need to run a comprehensive web campaign against my existance, although like I said before, it really is flattering. Like I said in the story, I grew up playing games on Xbox and Nintendo console's so I'm more inclined to be attracted to playing titles on those systems. You can disagree with my personal tastes, but that doesn't make them wrong. Because that's all they are, my personal tastes. Anyway, thanks for commenting and please do check out some of my other articles. I assure they aren't all like this one.
The Last of us is another reason why i love gaming on Sony's machines.
after all, it's power level is over 9000!!!
This gave me a good laugh. Bravo Ezio, bravo!
over 9000!!!! lol
What a shit article. These type of nonsense articles need to gtfo seriously......
So Killzone 2-91 UC3-92, UC3-96,MGS4-94,RE-86, RE2-87,Heavy Rain -87, LBP -94, LBP2-92, GOW3- 92 etc etc etc did not make you want a ps3 but an unreleased game with no footage makes you want one. No wonder bots are hilarious. GTFO. No one gives a **** whether you are buying a ps3 or not. LMAO! @Dougr - Then why did you buy your ps3? To play who wants to be a millionare? point being none of these games made him want a ps3 but an unreleased game with no gameplay footage made him want one? Lol now I know his gaming taste and yours as well
UC2/3 and GOW3 were the only games out of those you listed that I played and all I own is a ps3. Everyone has there own tastes and I certainly wouldn't have bought a ps3 for either of those three games.
No Heavy Rain, MGS4, Resistance 3 or KZ 2/3?! You make me sad :(
I played a few of those, Heavy Rain was okay, not a system seller for me, MGS4 never played, Resistance all of them were awful, KZ 2/3 were both terrible as well, just my opinion.
"not a system seller for me" But you said you already have a PS3. Where are you going with this?
I'm not sure how someone could hold off this long. I'm proud of him for finally giving in, but still. That's a strong person! Metal Gear Solid 4 broke most people years ago. Then, Heavy Rain and God of War 3 pulled another crowd in. Then, Uncharted 2...obviously. It's a shame inFamous 2 didn't pull in as many people as it should have. Brilliant game. :)
The only reason I would want a 360 again is for Quake 4, Gears trilogy and Alan Wake.
I bought a 360 to play through the Gears trilogy and Alan Wake. All amazing games. Then, I sold it. Of course, I got addicted to Fortresscraft during that time... Lol.
The only reason i have a Ps3 is for Uncharted and The last of us, basically ND games. In the near future possibly other games. But so far only those. :)
It's not unthinkable. You just stopped being a child.
Seriuosly? you don't want MGS 4, UC 1-3, GoW 3, Heavy Rain, Yakuza, Valkyria Chronicles, etc etc etc? ROTFL
Not everyone has the same taste. Out of every game you listed (I've played all but Valkyria Chronicles) the one I REALLY enjoyed was Heavy Rain. I liked MGS4, but I felt 3 was better. I liked the environments and survival aspect of 3. Besides Heavy Rain, I'd say LBP is my favorite. Friggin love that game. Not much has been shown of The Last of Us, but it has my interest and it might just be the type of survival game I've been waiting for.
Dude, this is not about taste cause PS3 library had a lotttt of variaty that cover all type of gamer. If you want some platforming there's Ratchet, Sly, or LBP. If you want racing we got GT. If you want FPS there's Resistance or Killzone. And if you want some action-adventure type game's than there MGS, GoW, UC, Yakuza, inFamous, and other great titles you can play on. So, if someone said "Oh man, The Last of Us is the first PS3 game that i want!!!" i just say (pardon my language) BULLSHIT.
@Inception Having one of each genre doesn't mean anything if the actual setting and characters of the game isn't interesting to said person. I love platformers, but I don't like Sly Copper or Ratchet & Clank, but I do like LBP. I know people that also love platformers that don't like either of those 3 games. I love FPS, but I don't like Halo. Being 100% honest, I use to have a 360 and a PS3. Hardly any PS3 exclusives (Aside from the ones I mentioned previously) held my interest. So I sold my PS3 because all it did was collect dust and I needed money at the time. 2011 is basically over and not one game made me want to jump up and buy a PS3 again. The Last of Us however might just change that. Even though no gameplay was actually shown, the setting, some of the environments, the plot, genre etc has been revealed. All of those things in this game interest me and I know what ND is capable of even though I don't like Uncharted. So there's a very high chance that this game is going to be extremely good. Assuming that's the case, I'll get a PS3 again for it. You can call BS all day long, but the fact of the matter is, you don't know what everyone likes and dislikes. You believing every gamer MUST like at least 1 PS3 exclusive enough to purchase the system because there's one in each genre, is just you being in denial of the fact that you can't accept that other people don't like the same things as you do.
One in each genre? You clearly don't know ps3 lineup or simply underrating it. FPS: RES, KZ, MAG 3PS: MGS, SOC, WH/SH 3PA: GOW, YAK, INF, UC, HR DRI: GT5, MNR, WO, MS RPG: DIS, WKC, VC, DmS, 3DDGH PLA: LBP, SLY, R&C MMO: DCUO, FR SPO: MLB, SC And others i forgot. If you don't like anything in those 24 franchises/titles, with lots of 90+ and almost no 80- obviously you have a fanboy problem.
Seriously this site is a little ridiculous at the labeling of fanboy. I'm a fan of PS3 only own 1 console, but the ps3 exclusives are hardly things I would consider buying a ps3 for. I bought a ps3 in 2007 for the socom franchise, but since then there really hasn't been anything that has been all that worth buying as far as exclusives go. As far as you list goes here is my opinion on the breakdown: FPS: RES, KZ, MAG / Multi platforms are better 3PS: MGS, SOC, WH/SH : Socom was system seller to me, turned out it was terrible 3PA: GOW, YAK, INF, UC, HR / GOW and UC are obviously great, but they are single player games with no interesting multi player, they are classic rent for a week games. Infamous I never really gave a chance, 1 was okay, but never played 2. DRI: GT5, MNR, WO, MS / Bought all of those but WO as I don't know what that stands for GT 5 is great, MNR was a huge let down, and MS is fun for a few hours. RPG: DIS, WKC, VC, DmS, 3DDGH / not a fan of genre. PLA: LBP, SLY, R&C / not a fan of genre MMO: DCUO, FR / Others are way better and DCUO isn't exclusive. SPO: MLB, SC / these weren't any good because not a fan of baseball for MLB. I guess for the typical gamer the system should have something for everybody, but for gamers like me there really isn't a lot of value in the exclusives for replayability as I don't replay story games just for the hell of it. My favorite games this gen have been games like Just Cause 2 (my favorite non sports) NHL series, COD series to an extent, Battlefield series, and Oblivion/Fallout series. Not a whole lot I was excited about this gen for PS3 especially after I got a gaming computer, my desire to buy games for ps3 has fallen so much once I got a load of the power games can have on the PC such as Witcher 2, Civilization, Skyrim, etc. Really the only thing that separates the PS3 from the competition including computer is the controller, the amazing blu ray player, and the nhl series.
Because of course everyone should bend over for Sony.
I'm sure once release date rolls around you'll have found some reason to not buy it.
It wouldn't be the first time a fanboy went from pretending to like a ps3 game during it getting hyped, (just long enough to not be called a fanboy) and then change their mind for a goofy reason.... "But he's holding a subway sandwich! I'll never support such a sellout!" *Guzzles drink from limited edition Mountain Dew Master Chief bottle* "Awwwww, man! I spilled on my 'Finish the Fight' Tee!"
Hahahaha. Bubbles for you for that laugh bro
What about uncharted, 1/2/3 and killzone 2 /3, infamous 1/2 heavy rain MGS4 ..etc
Its obvious this person is not interested in any of those games or didn't know about them.
I bought a PS3 for the same reason this guy went with Nintendo or Microsoft. I have a history with Playstation consoles, so naturally, that was the one I bought first. I own both now. It's not WRONG to own either system. They serve different purposes for different people.
The only system I somewhat regret is the Wii. Got it for the wife whom doesn't touch it outside of netflix channel. Even bough the wii balance board for her..I played it more than her but going from HD to SD really ruined the experience. Hopefully we stay @1080p(WiiU) for a while so the Ps4/Xbox720 doesn't come out in super hi-sef of 3442342 x 35322 pixels ;)
bull$hit . if he hasn't got one by now then he never will . he is full of $hit writing this nonsense .
Motorstorm was the reason I bought my ps3. :)
After UC2 the only exclusive game I really wanted was R3, I have absolutely no interest in any other PS3 exclusive. Although I did buy UC3 it was purely due to hype which is also the reason I only did one playthrough of the game since it wasn't as good as UC2 (apart from the ship yard gameplay). But apart from Resistance 3 I do intend on getting TLOU and FFvs13 since I have interest in both of these games.
Since people are talking about taste the same thing goes for the 360 I personally love the gears series but the variety on the 360 is limited with halo being overrated but if you honestly look at the ps3 libary of games it has variety and to say It's about taste your lying to yourself and this is coming from a person that own both a 360 and ps3.
Well I have a friend who only wants to play the Gears of War trilogy on the Xbox 360 and nothing else. So people like the author (although rare in my experience) doesn't really surprise me.
lol man he is thinking too much thank god he is not buying a car
