Sorry, must have missed that topic.

Don't you Wii fanboys have anything better to do than troll in a Sony forum?


I am trolling? How so?

Because I said that Sony would essentially kill the PS3 if they go with waggle on the PS2? I think Dolla Dolla said it the best way.


It would hurt the Wii more than the 360 and PS3.


It would help the Wii more than either the PS2, PS3 or 360. Waggle would be an even bigger thing than it is now and the Wii is the hottest console that has waggle.



Legend11 correctly predicted that GTA IV (360+PS3) would outsell SSBB. I was wrong.

Well, I just checked and was wrong, I guess it would be a good strategy for Sony to do this. Their PS2 sales are higher than PS3 sales and this could only increase it. Once again, in my opinion if they really do this, they show that they have gave up on PS3. Simple as that.

Wrong about what? I assume PS2 sells are stronger than you thought? They are doing rather well, and a price-cut is yet to come.

PS2 versus Wii.

PS3 versus 360.

Sony isn't giving up on the PS3 by combating the Wii sales. The Wii is last generation graphics, and so is the PS2. Nintendo is the one that gave up on the next-gen graphics (and quite successfully so far I might add).


You really think so? That is quite strange. I personaly would not be for a company that lives in the past. And you really think that the Wii hasn't taken PS3 sales? I think we really live in 2 seperate worlds then.


Yes, that would be the repositioned stage.  How is Nintendo not living in the past by offering xbox 1 graphics?

I said this weeks ago. As a rumor also from EGM....

Hum...how did you find out because I just got the magazine. Was it mentioned in a podcast? I probably forgot that podcast.  Sorry.

To me, it's new information and I hope "Quartermann" is right.

The third party games for the Wii aren't important anyway, why would someone want to play them on the PS2?

Are you getting afraid that the Wii will be unstoppable?

The Wii is RolStoppable!

Anyway, it seems as a fruitless discussion, I just stated my opinion there, I didn't mean to troll. Somehow you misunderstood that for an attack on sony. It was just my opinion. it doesn't have to be right.

Fair enough.  I meant Rol more than you.  

The trend on vgchartz is:  positive Sony post gets rampaged on.

Apparently that extends to the Sony forum as well.

Half the reason the Wii sells is price.  The other half is the controller.  Both advantages would be gone.

Okay. Let's end it here before it gets any worse.

Yeah, Windbane is going off the deep end here. Tone it back a bit. First and foremost, as TheSource has already noted, this has been summarily denied by Sony.

 I think it would be a good idea sales wise and definatly hurt the Wii, but the Wii would win in the end. The common buyer wants the newest and best thing. Not to mention the fact that such an obvious copy cat model would lower public support.

-What sells better an Apple's iPod or Sony's cheaper MP3 Walkman?

-What sells better, BOSE noise-cancelling headphones for $200, or the just-as-good Creative noise-cancelling headphones for $49?

   

Anyway, if this rumor is true in one year people will look and see there are two consoles with motion sensing. One came out a year a half ago, one is 8 years old. Add to the fact that there has been a huge media hype over the Wii, and more people will probably go for that option.

And the fact that this would split the Sony devs in half, lower support for the PS3. Still, it would hurt the Wii sales a bit, no denying that.

Its like everyone completly ignores the ps3 as if its dated old and junk, the ps3 has motion sensitive controls as well.
