So ... spambot? 

No ... a real person?? 

I mean, it refers to the ad in the site, which makes me think a real person is typing.  But that does not read like it was composed by a person who speaks English fluently. 

And on the other hand, the links are for a .uk site, and it ALSO doesn't read like it's written by a programmer who speaks English fluently.

Scary.

My advice to fanboys: Brag about stuff that's true, not about stuff that's false. Predict stuff that's likely, not stuff that's unlikely. You will be happier, and we will be happier.

I have the most epic death scene ever in VGChartz Mafia.  Thanks WordsofWisdom! 

I am a happy ps3 owner, and im going with yes.

Sony is and has always been what is holding the ps3 back. It took to long took a longtime to bring out great games, trophies, psn, and get to a decent price.


Many of the above issues have.made Sony a better company and of will show.next gen. I still think not doing true ps2 "classics" has lost sony a great deal of business.



I guess that is a bit of a tricky question.

Sony failed the PS3 during the R&D phase. They were foolish; they were not keeping track of per unit production cost during research and development of the hardware (they had to cut out the second HDMI, 2 Ethernet ports, and 2 usb ports and were still selling at a 33% loss per unit at launch). They also failed at making the architecture developer friendly to help mitigate cost of making HD games, and they did not get development kits out early enough or helping studios learn the new architecture. This all led to a lack luster library of games for the two years of the PS3 and damaged a ton of brand image with customers and relationships with developers.

But after some time, Sony succeeded at reducing the console's price by a whopping $300 and saved the console by greatly expanding its exclusive game library.

Going forward, Sony seems to have learned a great humbling lesson from this, shown in the development of the PS Vita thus far; Vita's research and development focused on making hardware in accordance with what developers want. This helps strengthen developer relationships, educate developers early, and gets developers excited to make software for hardware that was designed specifically for their needs. And, they set a target specific price of production so the console would be sold at little or no loss at a reasonable price point ($249).

They also have mentioned that the PS4 will use a similar approach to make a more reasonably priced console at launch. The set price will certainly be higher than the Vita (my best guess is $399ish).



I think SONY made some terrible errors in the design of the PS3.

I recently purchased a PS3 having been a PS2 ----> Wii -----> 360 Owner and I considered this initially to be an upgrade.

I'm stunned and not in a good way.

I've enjoyed BluRay and a handful of games but the multiplats are terrible on the PS3.

Maybe I'm just over sensitive to screen tearing but after trying to play AC Brotherhood on the PS3 the unthinkable has happened. My 360 has been dusted off and is back in the living room. I've actually repurchased the game.

But the problems dont stop there. I've found numerous bugs in games, Sound problems, Res change flicking.

Thing is these are easy things to fix but SONY just dont seem to be bothered.

Its sad to say but if I had to some up the PS3 in one word it would be "unpolished"

Its a crying shame as the Tech under the hood of my PS3 seems to be going to waste.

Blame the developers of that specific game.... Sad sad sad rant post.



They totally screwed up the launch, but apart from that, Sony has been doing a good job imho.

playing right now: Xenoblade Chronicles

Hype-o-meter, from least to most hyped:  the Last Story, Twisted Metal, Mass Effect 3, Final Fantasy XIII-2, Final Fantasy Versus XIII, Playstation ViTA

bet with Mordred11 that Rage will look better on Xbox 360.

if it would have launched at $399 the gaming world would have been completely different today

Wii would have never taken off


Nah. Wii still would have raped the competition. It would have sold better WW for sure, but I actually wouldn't be surprised if the 360 still would have beaten it at that price point in the US.

Its simple

PS1/ps2 = 1st place

PS3......cant even beat a high failure prone console that doesnt even sell well in japan.

like cmon ppl

Older and wiser. Still bias and proud though ;)

Yeah in a way, but only at first. The fact they didn't give up on their project, it's not a failure. A failure is when you abandon the ship, then watch your ship sink into the deep ocean from afar in a lifeboat. There's nothing wrong in filling up the holes with wood at first then reinforce it later with metal after the storm. That's what sony did and that's the reason why PS3 is doing so well right now.Commitment.
