The PS3 had to endure much worse last year, so I guess it's the 360's turn. Microsoft are big boys, they can take it.

Bingo. Except I'd say, MS better be prepared to take it (the loss in overall profitability, by far, to Sony and PS3) because their viral marketing campaign earned them every bit of derision they get now, after making PS fans suffer for a couple years. Some MS fans, too, deserve the delicious reversal we've seen. Only some..they know who they are, and they mostly hide now, rather than post, across the Internet.

I used to read Hi Def Digest forums and it was funny how at one point the HD-DVD crowd was really rabid and dominant. In time, they were broken completely by reality and the BDA. Parallel?


I agree, some MS/360 fanboys deserve to have the PS3's success rubbed in their face for a while. I can't believe some people last year were calling the PS3 "dead" and proclaiming it to be the next 3DO, it was the most insane criticism of a console I've ever seen.  The tables have really turned, especially since 2008 started.

Haha, yeah the HD-DVD crowd really were rabid, just like the N64 crowd, just like the Dreamcast crowd and just like the Xbox 360 crowd........and Sony soon shut them all up. History always seems to repeat itself with PlayStations........

Because, people that own nintendo's and ps3's don't have our game selection and have to spend more time on here.

 

EDIT: i posted in your other thread.

 

You should make a thread called: why so many nintendo haters? People will be like, WTF?


so your one of those haters too?

 


yes, only because I have a wii and know how crappy it really is.


did you get one because you got the RRoD? and you only have wii sports


I got the when it launched, Nov. 2006.

I got my xbox360 9 months later.

 

I don't just have wii sports, look at my real gaming collection dim-wit.



And that's the only thing I need is *this*. I don't need this or this. Just this PS4... And this gaming PC. - The PS4 and the Gaming PC and that's all I need... And this Xbox 360. - The PS4, the Gaming PC, and the Xbox 360, and that's all I need... And these PS3's. - The PS4, and these PS3's, and the Gaming PC, and the Xbox 360... And this Nintendo DS. - The PS4, this Xbox 360, and the Gaming PC, and the PS3's, and that's all *I* need. And that's *all* I need too. I don't need one other thing, not one... I need this. - The Gaming PC and PS4, and Xbox 360, and thePS3's . Well what are you looking at? What do you think I'm some kind of a jerk or something! - And this. That's all I need.

Obligatory dick measuring Gaming Laptop Specs: Sager NP8270-GTX: 17.3" FULL HD (1920X1080) LED Matte LC, nVIDIA GeForce GTX 780M, Intel Core i7-4700MQ, 16GB (2x8GB) DDR3, 750GB SATA II 3GB/s 7,200 RPM Hard Drive

Most of these haters come from Europe and France in particular. I dont know why but I checked this out.
Japanese don t like the Xbox because they re protectionist. They did the same with the 3DO vg system.



Probaly because Sony fans were so cocky before the PS3 was released thinking it would own all, then it was released, and it was like a year of torture for them getting bashed by most 360 and Wii owners.

Now that PS3 can stand on it's own two feet, is beating 360 in sales, they are getting some revenge.



i wouldn't say i'm a "hater" but generally, i dislike the xbox idea, since, it's clear that they make the consoles just for money, where Nintendo really makes the difference!!

how can they simply make a remote for xbox360??
come on, for god's sake, don't they have a brain??

I can see how the Red Ring of Death could make someone bitter towards the company.

Also, even in America, a lot of people on the internet hate, hate, hate Microsoft. It's just something some people are raised to believe.



I don't need your console war.
It feeds the rich while it buries the poor.
You're power hungry, spinnin' stories, and bein' graphics whores.
I don't need your console war.

NO NO, NO NO NO.

Good question.
I would assume that only PS3 fans hate 360 cause they lost a lot of gamers.
For microsoft to come into the gaming industry so late and do so well doesn't fit well with Sony fans.

Oh, and some really hate microsoft.



I don't know which forums you're talking about. But here's what I could say:

1. A lot of people are big PS2 fans and didn't like the original Xbox, so they feel obligated to hate the 360.

2. In Vgchartz, for one, a lot of users come from Spanish speaking countries (where Nintendo and Sony are popular) or European countries (where Sony and Nintendo are both far more popular than Microsoft). If you go to a site like Gamefaqs, with lots of American users, you will notice a lot of love for the 360. Not the same on this site.



 

 

For myself, I don't hate microsoft, it just whole rrod, disk scratching and x-mote, really pissed me of. Like sony's having, no rumble and limited bc, and price. Now sony are on my good side again.

 But Nintendo, on the other hand, makes games out of pure love, and their only goal is to spread happiness and joy worldwide. right....
