Locked: Has the Sony Fanbase become an Overwhelming(Suffocating) Force?

Forums - Gaming Discussion - Has the Sony Fanbase become an Overwhelming(Suffocating) Force?

The fact that you had to make a thread listing the PS3's accomplishments obviously shows how little it has.

It's like the guy that drives around in a car with a very long front end, trying to overcompensate for other deficiencies?

Don't know how these Sony fanboys can bash the Wii anyway. Not while it is outselling the ps3 x2 and the ps3 has NO chance of catching up? Ever?

 

Did you not see Nintendo's E3 conference? I suppose not, as if you did it would be obvious.

 

That only means you can bash the idtiots on stage, not the Wii itself.

That and the fact that they showed nothig for hardcore gamers. Hardcore might be interested in Wii Music and stuff but nothing that would ever make me want a Wii. I have seen some really good games for Wii that are rumored and stuff (Fragile?) but nothing that makes me want to up and buy one. Yet it is not like Nintedo needs my money, they make plenty. Still I do not like their approach to gamers like me.

The funniest thing about PS3 fans is that every argument they can throw at other consoles, specifically the Wii, can be used by the PC  fans to show that the PS3 is just a mediocre piece of gaming hardware. OH THE IRONY!

 

Ok I am going to actually take the time out of my day to respond to this...

While PC as a gaming console will always out match those of a console, it is still not viable as such. There are a few reasons while PC gamers get over looked, don't get many big budget releases, and get talked down to.

1. PC gaming is an exspensive venture for the average consumer. I mean look at Crysis, you have to invest in a $1200 computer to simply run it on MEDIUM. PC gaming demands top of the line hardware and it gets rather costly. It will never be more affordable then consoles. Even if certain PC gamers know how to get cheaper fixes on their computers, the fact of the matter is that the common consumer does not.

2. Console's whole entire perpose is mostly focused on gaming. The PS3 deterres from this a bit  but in all it wants to establish itself as the ultimate Entertainment System. PC's tend to have many other tasks involved with it, keeping it from the average consumer eye. Also these other purposes mean you must also shell out somemore cash then those who simpy use their PC/console for gaming.

3. Piracy is rampant within PC gaming. Many companies found that they were not churning out any significant profit from PC games. DMC virtually made none from piracy and lack of interest on PC. Look at Spore, over 4000 people since the last time i checked have downloaded Spore for free off the internet. I am sure that number is much much higher now. This is less likely to happen on consoles.

Very valid point. I got Crysis when it came came out, and played it on a month old £1000 (!) PC (close to $2000), and in some places it struggled to run it on medium! I mean it was on gorgeous 1680 x 1050 resolution, but still...

 

1. That's funny, cause it ran on my brother's $650 rig on high.

2. What happened to PS3 fans going on all about how the Wii has shit for functionality for not even being able to play DID games? If you are gonna flame other consoles for lack of Blu-ray and what not be prepared to take the same flak from PC gamers. Also, a PC is the only true way to set up your entire home entertainment just the way you want it to your specifications, not the PS3.

3. I'm not gonna argue with the piracy, it does exist. But were you really expecting a cheap port such as DMC to sell well on the PC? PC gamers don't like anything that hints thatthe game is also on a console, like Unreal Tournament 3. the biggest offense to a game is if it feels consolish. I'm one of those pople that dowloaded tSpore last night, my copy is arriving in the mail soon, I just didn't want to wait 5 more days, but they do still get my money.

 

My point is that everything that a PS3 fan can use against the wii such as: functionality, graphics, depth of games, etc. Goes double for the PC aginst the PS3, so maybe instead of PS3 fans making asses of themselves they shoud just stfu?

 

 

Or all fanboys, but we know how likely that is. The Sony fanboys don't want to face reality, the Microsoft fanboys don't want to acknowledge how new gamers can make the market grow, and the Nintendo fanboys keep whining whenever Nintendo shows a game that isn't going to get at least a "T" rating.

 

That is true, but at least when Wii fanboys say Nintendo is best at innovating controls they are actually right, Nintendo is the best. On the other hand when a 360 or a PS3 owned comes out and says that thei console has the best graphics or best hardcore, in-depth games, it just makes people like me laugh because that simply is not true. They are the best at neither. Sony and M$ are the best at hyping up their products and making sure the ignorant folk belive that what they say is true. Same for Nintendo of course.

I don't think people were pissed off with the E3 conference for the same reasons you're probably thinking.

"I want to continue being petty and let everyone know what I feel about their console choice, yet I know this is wrong. I have begun to realize that we as Sony fans have become quite overwhelming, if not suffocating to the gaming community."

This sums it up and I now have come to the realization that I HATE Sony fanboys. MY GOD, how many reassurance threads must you people make?! Choosing to be petty is pathetic, and u r right, the Sony fanboys are suffocating the gaming community with stupid threads like this, so much so that I am ashamed to say that I like the PS3 and PSP. I think I'm going to join Soriku in the Nintendo forums arguing y KH3 is coming to the Wii, or fight the good fight with Starcraft against anybody that has anything bad to say about Gears Of War 2, cuz me, unlike Sony fanboys, live in reality and knows that KH3 going to the Wii is very likely and don't discriminate on good 360 games just cuz it's exclusive. (NOT joking)

you make less sense then me being petty on purpose. This thread is about me us not doing that anymore.

Now that I said we should not do it as Sony fans you say you are going to switch sides and do it for another console? Is that not contradictory to why you say you are leaving the Sony side in the first place? That is simpy ludacris.

And this thread is not on reassurance as a Sony fan, it is on decreasing our overwhelming need to overshadow the other consoles, regardless of what we think. We have enough publicity, so we can tone it down. GOSH! did you read it at all?

 

Umm... no I never said I was going to "be petty" for someone else, instead of sitting back and watching Sony fanboys argue for KH3 exclusivity, Ima speak up even if it's going against my only console at the moment. Same thing for the 360 and their good exclusive games.

 

"Now that I said we should not do it as Sony fans..."

 

Really? Was this not ur closing paragraph?

".......really? You want sovereignty after all the bashing and taunting Sony fans went through initially? You want me to not flame a 360 game to holy hell even though your kind did it just a few months ago when the PS3 needed suporters? We are all of a sudden suppose to be the bigger......(gamer?) and not do the same kinds of things xbox fans, and nintendo fans did already. While it has much validity to it, me personally, I dont want to, I want to continue being petty and let everyone know what I feel about their console choice, yet I know this is wrong."

 

Bolded to show the contradictory statement that just made u look like a fool.

GOSH! did u read wat u typed at all?

"Sony's conference was medicore if anything ,but no one is going on about that."

Sony had by far the best conference at E3. In comparison, there were only a couple of standout moments at the 360 conference and none at the Nintendo conference.



My most anticipated games:  Whatever Hideo Kojima is going to do next, Final Fantasy XIII, Final Fantasy Versus XIII, Gran Turismo 5, Alan Wake, Wii Sports Resort.  Cave Story Wiiware.
