Sony fans are unique, because unlike Wii and 360 fans, who each are content with defending their console on its on terms, PS3 fans will more often then not use the PC to defend the PS3. This scenerio has heppened to me countless times (im using 2012 examples):

Me: Witcher 2 and Minecraft are amazing 360 games. PS3 doesnt have them. 

PS3 Fan: They are not exclusive. I can just play them on PC. 

Actually pay attention to a PS3 fan defending their console. More often then you think.....they admit to playing their PC alongside their PS3. They know PS3 cant play the 360 games with PC versions so they "bundle" the PC with their PS3 to make the ultimate gaming setup. 

Essentially its instead of 360 vs PS3.........PS3 fans turn it into 360 vs PS3/PC. 

They need the PC to compensate for 360s multiplats not available on PS3. PS3 suddenly cant stand up for itself, PS3 fans need a second system to elevate it, to make it a fair comparison. But I see its funny that Sony fans are the only ones who cant defend PS3 for its own qualities. 

Now please, respond :)

That same thing could be said of 360 fans who can't handle when a PS3 exclusive takes the reviewers by storm visually and they enter the convo with "who cares, PC games still look better". Both sides have used the PC as a blanket at one time or another.

Just on the subject of games on multiple systems - I'm someone that will proudly buy a multiplat title on PC. More often than not, it's the better experience. Plus, it rids the need of sources like Lens of Truth (Digital Foundry does face-offs that include the PC).

I agree with the spirit of your wall of unbroken text, but I do want to point out that the Sega Dreamcast launched at $199.99 on 9/9/99. I know because I drove three hours to stand in line for my Dreamcast. The PS2 was the more expensive system. Those few years with the Dreamcast at its prime were truly great. It's too bad so many "gamers" decided to skip the stellar Dreamcast in favor of waiting for the PS2. They really missed out and now we all miss out on all the experimental games Sega used to developer on their systems because it cost them almost nothing. Sometimes it was great, other times it was just interesting, but it was always good for the industry.



You are 100% correct.  I was miss-remembering which console generation I had intended to cite.  I had the Brands and Prices correct, but wrong systems.  At E3 1995, Sega made their presentation unveiling the Sega Saturn which they shipped out as a surprise the night before at $399 a system.  Sony, who made their presentation immediately following Sega, walked up to the podium and tersely announced "$299" (as the price of the Sony Play Station) which was greeted with a resounding applause.  My apologies for the mix-up.



My favorite fans are sega fans :)

Xbox fanboys are the worst. They ignore the fact that they pay for online and that the united states is the only country Xbox outells sony.I have been with Sony since its inception. I have bought all 3 systems of playstation. I love the fact that the same ppl who bought ps1 and ps2 have jumped ship to greedy microsoft with the xbox.Microsoft is a greedy corporation. They put out bad xbox's(red rings of death)to get a head start over sony for years and did not care about there customers .Yet Xbox fanboys will talk smack about ppl who stay loyal to sony.Sony has free online and has strived for great products.I will not just jump ship after enjoying such great games over the 16 year Playstation cycle.For this im a Sonyfanboy. Next time a women or man cheats or backstabs you then you'll know how it feels to be an xbox fan. You will see how greedy microsoft is with windows 8 and all the crap there gonna try and squeeze out of everyones market shares.


Mark as "exhibit A" as to why this poll has gone the way it has.

I am literally frigthened for people when they talk this way.  



I'm not really here!

Link: Shipment History Since 1995


Nintento fans they think evrything was invented by Nintendo they think motion control was using from the first time in gaming when snes uses this technology,when psvita got AR games many Nintendo fans said Sony stole Nintendo idea but they don't know that psp got AR games before 3DS.
They said psvita and psp don't have news IP but Nintendo never make a new IP PSVita already got Soul Sacrifice and Gravity Rush.



PS4 - over 100 millions let's say 120m
Xbox One - 70m
Wii U - 25m

Vita - 15m if it will not get Final Fantasy Kingdoms Heart and Monster Hunter 20m otherwise
3DS - 80m

Endless ocean.

People who generalize can be problematic.

Several "Exhibit As" in here, and not all of them apply to a supporter of Sony (see GeneralMLD).That and, poll results haven't ever nor will ever be a realistic measure of anything, except that anyone and everyone can vote in it.

That said, this poster is no better, so we agree there.



                                                                                                                                            

lol at the poll,,,,
