I think I made a few jokes about the name, but I never really had any bitter feelings about it. Heck, I didn't even know about the console wars between Nintendo and Sega/Sony. I was just a kid who loved to play games and didn't think much on it. I had both a Genesis and Super Nintendo. I got a PS2 because I wanted games on that system, and it continued on like that for awhile.

What I do find bothersome though is its fanbase. It was its fans that kinda brought that dark side of gaming for me. I had a friend in college who loved playstation, and liked to tell me how their games were great and how Sony was better than Nintendo. Boy, was that annoying, and I've met other Sony fans that try to push how great Playstation is as well as their games are, while berating the games I liked.

Boy, I hated it, and it still jades my view on the majority of its fanbase.

Do you ever just sit back from all the fan-ism stuff and think "what the hell is wrong with people?" Like, can you believe people actually get this crazy over a plastic game system? It's just mind-numbing lol

More or less yeah. Sometimes I can't help but wonder why there is so much fighting over something as fun and relaxing as video games.

My first system was the Atari 7800, which also played Atari 2600 games. But, after the NES, I became a big Nintendo fan. Stuck with them during the following gen, too. Though, near the end, we did get a 2nd hand Genesis. The next gen, I wanted to get a N64 and scoffed at the PS1. Eventually, however, I got to try a PS1 at a friend's house. The second I got my hands on that controller and played a few of its games, with FMV cutscenes, I was sold. Been a PS fan ever since.

I like the games, but the company not as much. They have had some horrible PR in the past, have blatantly ripped from Nintendo's successes, and made industry moves specifically to destroy Nintendo. MS, on the other hand, has wanted to acquire Nintendo in the past and has maintained a much friendlier and healthier relationship with them, especially for the industry. MS has other problems though, but I at least respect how they have handle Nintendo and vice versa.


Having said all that, Sony has been much much better this generation in how they approach their competition and what they offer their customers, and I think consumers and others in the industry have taken notice.

Until about a week ago, when Sony shat on everyone over crossplatform play, particularly with Rocket League. Sony is being thick brained and arseholes about crossplatform play, at least for 3rd party games. I can understand with Minecraft being a MS game and MS demanding that all players get XBL accounts regardless of platform. But Rocket League? Come one, one global online community would be briliant for the game. And we know it can be done with not all that much effort.

Something misssing in your post.  SEGA of America Tom Kalinskie proposed to Sony they work together on a console and sent them a spec sheet. SEGA of Japan hated the idea. Talks ended. Sony used the specs Tom proposed for PS1. Sega of Japan made the Saturn..a system that technically was a beast but insanely hard to program for. Nintendo also went cartridges with N64. If N64 used CD's who knows where PS1 would be.

 I'm thinking the people in Sony's PS R&D already had a clear vision for what they wanted and that Tom Kalinski and a spec sheet he jotted out had nothing to do with the PSX specs. I have certainly never heard that prior to your post, and can't find anything to verify it. Can you point me towards a source? Also, another of the issues with the Saturn hardware was that it was a 2D, sprite graphics beast. It's 3D polygonal capabilities weren't as good as the PS1, which was just as big of an issue as it's complicated architecture. Aside from the inexplicably poor port of SOTN, it was always better at 2D. No doubt.

Tom did in a interview online a few years back. Can't remember if it was SEGA Nerds or something else. He's done a few long interviews over the past few years on Youtube so you can look for it there.

Ok thanks. I'll poke around a bit. Read a few articles and couldn't find anything.

The industry needs Sony for balancing reasons, as well as it needs Microsoft and Nintendo. They are like FFVI's Warring Triad.

Personally, I don't care about Sony or MS. But I wish them success.

Substance > Style

Art Direction > Realism

This isn't the same one I listened to but does mention working with Sony and specs and how he wanted Silicon who ended up in N64 and SOJ shot him and Sony down. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=304uuwKhkAY So SEGA could have had Sony make Saturn and we might be playing SEGA's 6th home console in 2017.



I currently only own Nintendo consoles, but I don't have any ill will toward Sony or Microsoft. I'm definitely biased towards Nintendo games, but seeing Sony or MS preform well is good, just disappointing when Nintendo does badly

Still want a PS3 but have yet to find one D:

I have tons of ill will for Sony but not because of the 90s. I liked them in the 90s but now I don't like them in the 90s or any other time period.

Awful 'games'. Using story and character as crutches for gameplay shouldn't be allowed. If God of War was on Switch, the game would be over after pressing the + button twice. Flower is an overhyped 3d version of centipede. All the 'muh Clementine' crap in Last of Us made me nauseous.

Apple makes better music players, MS makes better computer platforms, Disney makes better movies and Nintendo makes better games.

People like you who complain about what other people like and try to tell others that they're enjoying themselves wrong are probably the biggest reason Sony's success makes me so happy.  

I'm not kidding, either.  It pleases me greatly.



I dont care for Sony anymore, they lost me with the ps2, Gamecube was better and had way more fun with it, and yes i owned a PS2, The big N is the true king either way, an authentic gaming company.

 

The PS1 was a beast though.
