Id say more a "loyal fan" not fanboy.

When my rugby team starts losing I dont swap to the over team and start supporting them, because im a loyal fan.

When you are making purchasing decisions based on loyalty to a company rather than value of product itself you have crossed over from just being a loyal fan. comparing supporting a rugby team when it is losing to your support of a console is really the sign of someone that is not just a loyal fan.

That's exactly what I was thinking. If you put that much emotion into a gaming console like rooting for your sport team then you definately cross the loyal line.

 

Please. Your purchase decision was swayed by your emotional response to the attitudes and actions of strangers comprising less than 1% of the install base of an electronic device.

There was a period the 360 was selling more units than PS3 annually. Regardless, the Playstation brand went from dominating the competition to struggling against Nintendo and MS. The only reason PS3 hasn't gotten where it has is because Sony sacrificed billions to boost sales. But ultimately lost much of their userbase to the 360.

I don't know why you're babbling about MS's Xbone policy changes. I don't see how that is relevant to the comment your responded to.

2007 is the only year it properly outsold it I think, 2006 the PS3 hadn't launched worldwide yet.

Sony supports DRM just not on consoles. They are an entertainment branch that includes movies and music.

Before the Xbox One reveal Sony said used game DRM on the PS4 would be left up to publishers. 


....Good lord .....that doesn't mean they are doing it. The fact that they left it up to publishers sent EA backpeddling. MS was willing to implement it themselves which the EA obviously would've been much happier with but they couldnt pressure Sony to turn on the gamers, so it shut up EA, got the fans on Sonys side and here we are today with MS feeling the backlash and changing their policies. Sony and MS support DRM outside of the gaming industry, but MS made the mistake of forcing it down their consumers throats on the Xbox. Thank goodness they took it out for the sake of Xbox gamers everywhere.

Still, the fact that they even contemplated it is appalling. I'm just saying let's be fair here and Sony needs to be held accountable for their actions just as much as Microsoft. 

You do know that Yoshida said they never thought about it right? They do support DRM but where DRM has already been accepted, like movies and music. Games are not one of those.

What I said appears to be accruate.

Most notably, the Playstation brand went from dominating the competition to that.

Pretty much this. I've noticed his posts and he seems emotionally charged as well, but against Sony. The PS4 could have the best line up of exclusives titles all running at a superior performance level, and I am inclined to think he would look the other way.

I'm laughing at people who already sold their 360 and cancelled their Gold memberships.

 

Edit: Alright, you guys have made good points.


You're laughing at the people who took a stand.

The people who were brave enough to voice dissent.

The people who ultimately forced this welcome change in policy.

You have got a lot of growing up to do fella.


I realize that now. Hence, the edit.

Fair enough, game on in peace.

1. There is definately no emotion involve with that decision. Not going to lose any sleep because I refuse to buy a electronic device.

2. Not Sony, but stupid Sony Fanboys like some here who derail my thread completely.

3. This is exactly what I mean about you Sony fans. You guys always throw around the word "best or greatest" like it's not subjective.  You guys don't understand that there are people out there who prefer games like Mario and Halo over the PS3 exclusives like myself.

And now Nintendo has gone form dominating the competition to selling less than half of what PS3 sold even at $599. Point being, history doesn't give any guarantees for the future. Microsoft reversing on the policies only means that it won't scare away potential buyers, but it won't draw in any new ones either. Playstation is still the stronger brand, and now with a more even playing field it will show.

Poor choice of words, I am sure the Playstation brand was still dominating the Xbox brand considering PS3+PSP+PS2.  DS brand was dominating anyways. And I think he meant 2008 since it appears 2007 PS3>360.

I would not say he is a Sony fan considering some of his posts, in fact says hes playing Halo over PS3 exclusives.
