    So...being realistic...XBOX360 made Ps3 flop this year

    in Sales Discussion on 13 November 2008

    In response to the OP, let's be serious... Sony had been consistently outselling the XBOX 360 worldwide this year and, while the 360 was doing good sales, it needed a price-cut to trump Sony in sales. Did this hinder the PS3's sales? No, it's still selling significantly better than it was last year, even with the $200 base price difference between arcade and 80GB units. What has this done for...

    Uh-oh. I joined the dark side.

    in Sony Discussion on 03 July 2008

    Congratulations on becoming a dark jedi, and I hope you feel completely satisfied with your new investment. I'm envious of you for having gotten your hands on the MGS4 80 gig bundle as I purchased the MotorStorm bundle back in January. Seeing as Japan and many parts of Europe have gotten the "Best of" or "Platinum Hits" series of games, it's only a matter of time for the US/Canada to get the...

    finally got a ps3, got some questions/concerns

    in Sony Discussion on 03 July 2008

    1) The PS3 is a powerful beast that creates a lot of heat, so you shouldn't worry about anything but your electric bill. 2) I strongly recommend keeping it in an open, well-ventilated area to increase the longevity of the system. My room feels like a sauna after a long period of gaming and that's with constant central air. 3) DSL should be fine as long as nothing interferes with your...

    EU sales UP!!PS3 OUCH!

    in Sales Discussion on 25 June 2008

    Something doesn't make sense. If last week's VGC chart showed PS3 globally as 13.58 mil, then why after 80k+ from EU/O does it only jump to 13.62 mil? Isn't 40k missing or is my memory hazy? (Not the first time I've noticed the numbers not matching.)...

    Gamespot gives MGS4 a 0 (zero) out of 10.

    in Sony Discussion on 18 June 2008

    superchunk said: so, MGS4 only has 6 hours of actual gameplay? f that. Games should have at least 15hrs of solo play. Superchunk, just curious, do you have a PS3? I've noticed you are fairly involved with Sony-related topics (quite negative usually, yet to see anything positive or constructive in any discussion). Just curious. I do agree games should have longer campaigns than I experienced...

    Metal Gear Solid 4 Interactive Database Hitting PSN Store 6/19

    in Sony Discussion on 18 June 2008

    I just read this and I must say it's BADASS! I picked up the MGS: Essentials Collection hoping to catch up again on the story of the earlier MGS titles and now that I know this is coming out I didn't really have to. I may be no console fanboy but when it comes to Metal Gear and Silent Hill I'm as rabid as they come. Bravo Konami on going that extra mile to satiate mine and everyone else's...

    How long will the increased sales of the ps3 last?

    in Gaming Discussion on 18 June 2008

    @kitler53I can see where that misunderstanding could be made by my statement, but that isn't the point I'm trying to make. It isn't whether someone wants it or not, it's more of a "it's there I better get it before someone else does." There are still people riding the fence on which console they want to adopt this generation and stimulating such a psychological effect could quite possibly push...

    How long will the increased sales of the ps3 last?

    in Gaming Discussion on 18 June 2008

    MGS4 is a blockbuster release (and worth every penny) but can it exclusively (in NA at least) be attributed to why Sony is having such a successful month and is selling systems like hot cakes? Come on, folks, it's the return of BACKWARDS COMPATIBILITY! Sales will continue to soar as long as Sony does 3 things: 1) Release a limited amount of bundles/BC models to have a like-effect on sales as...

    Rumor : MS is trying to buy RE5 timed exclusivity !

    in Gaming Discussion on 18 June 2008

    Microsoft seems to be like that rich uncle who throws money at you to buy your affection but really doesn't give a crap about you. Yes, money talks and it's obvious since Microsoft has been on a buying spree since they don't feel like expanding their disappointing (in my opinion anyway) first-party studio. That fear always exists in the back of my mind that MS will always try to buy...

    im confused MGS4 and GTA4 both got 10 from like everyone

    in Sony Discussion on 18 June 2008

    There's quite a discrepancy between MGS4 and GTAIV reviews, but personally with hands-on with both, I'd say MGS4 is the only one worth 10. I wasn't as drawn in and addicted with GTA. These "8" reviews for MGS4 didn't make a firm argument as to why 2 points were deducted. One could speculate as to why these reviews were low, but in some cases like GamesDaily and Eurogamer it was a biased review...

    Microsoft to turn Blu Monday?

    in Microsoft Discussion on 08 June 2008

    Honestly, having been down the 360 road before, knowing first-hand how they flip-flop on their stances (bought an HDMI-less 360 a couple days before Elite announced, yeah...) it wouldn't surprise me that they'd jump on the blu-ray bandwagon too. However, it doesn't make sense why a company who is soon to turn their division profitable for the first time would adopt something that would put them...

    What would u do if PSN cost $$$?

    in Sony Discussion on 08 June 2008

    I'm guessing the introduction of Qore is Sony's stealth attempt at seeing how PSN members would respond to a paid service, which some people are stupid enough to give in to. Should PSN cost money in the future (wouldn't surprise me) I'd boycott the service, but it'd be like me refusing to pay $4 a gallon for gas and every other obsolete fuel-dependant moron giving in to the corrupt oil...

    So Who's Buying Little Big Planet?

    in Sony Discussion on 06 June 2008

    I'm definitely getting LittleBigPlanet.  I've always had interest in the game, even before I picked up my PS3 and was playing with my former Xbox360.  Near-limitless customization and the fact you can assign one of 8 "brains" to your inanimate objects to make them into enemies should allow you to make some interesting scenarios for your levels.  I just hope eventually...

    Bioshock 3 announced!!!!

    in Microsoft Discussion on 06 June 2008

    Way too early to get excited about Bioshock 3's announcement. BioS was a great game, don't get me wrong (bought for 360 and getting again for PS3), but we haven't any details or hands-on with the second installment for it to be deemed worthy of yet another in the series. I don't know about you guys, but the first was too good to be exploited by half-assed sequels aimed solely for profit....

    PS3's Bioshock Mystery Studio - What Could the Unannounced Components Be?

    in Gaming Discussion on 04 June 2008

    Original story: http://www.computerandvideogames.com/article.php?id=190211 There are four studios currently working hard on the PS3 port of Bioshock: 2K Marin, 2K Bostin, 2K Australia and a fourth mysterious yet-to-be-revealed studio who allegedly has "some outstanding PS3-specific coding chops..." Who could this be? Insomiac is well-known to have a strong grasp on PS3 programming. Recently...

    Why do people keep claiming MGS4 is PS3's saviour?

    in Sony Discussion on 03 June 2008

    As has been stated before, the PS3 doesn't need a savior. It's still selling faster than the Xbox 360 in a much shorter period of time and such momentum will continue into next year, a year with a much stronger library than this one. Only a fool at this point would fail to realize the big picture and that not every company, especially one selling a system as costly as it is, will have Wii...

    Why do people keep claiming MGS4 is PS3's saviour?

    in Sony Discussion on 03 June 2008

    [Edited the ramblings of an old man.] I think MGS4's success will be against the trend and it will draw in more types of gamers than its predecessors that stuck with a rather conservative formula, but I wouldn't be as bold to say it's a "savior." System-seller? Possibly. The game has a rather robust single-player experience and a feature-packed online component to be enjoyed. Any...
