Forums - Microsoft Discussion - A question for those that consider themselves Xbox fans/ fanboys...

I wouldn't exactly call myself a M$ fanboy, but more a Gaming Fanboy. I have both a ps3 and an Xbox 360, but I seem to defend my 360 more than the other. WHY? To be honest I think it is because of the way I feel Sony has treated me this generation. Arrogance, wait untils, overprice, and an overall disrespect of their fan base is what led Sony into this situation, not M$ (IMO).

I hate the idea of a monopoly on any of the systems, it isn't good for gaming in general. But I am rooting for the 360 to have a solid #2 finish. Maybe next time, Sony may not be as disrespectful.

Competition is great. It's driving innovation in our industry.

Playstation was a monopoly and Sony abused it's standing by releasing a $600 trojan containing a new disc format.

If there was no 360 the PS3 would be a pretty ordinary console feature wise. And it would probably still priced around $500.

Besides, what's so bad about Windows? Do you really think Microsoft has hurt the computer industry?



Actually I can agree with you. Microsoft is doing an excellent job. Sony is doing what they can to stay alive, Sony went wrong when they released the PS3 without any software to back up the price tag. If MGS4 was to release around the time of the PS3 launch, all would been good. I'm proud of Microsoft they prove to me that they will do anything to get there business going. If it requires to establish close relationships with publishers *coughs money coughs* then they do what they got to do. Microsoft went from a non-JRPG to a JRPG favorite.

I got to hand to them. From the achievements to their exclusives to their Xbox Live. Its a freaking awesome experience!!!

Sorry if there wasn't enough paragraphs I'm typing this from my blackberry!

Well said I bet Sony wont release another $600.00 console next gen.  Ms has the worst brand name and req compared to playstation and Nintendo its kind of funny buyt MS is the underdog.  They have a great startegy and done well.  I will continue to support them but the key for all is competation it helps us all



PS3, WII and 360 all great systems depends on what type of console player you are.

Currently playing Call of Duty Modern Warfare 2, Fallout 3, Halo ODST and Dragon Age Origins is next game

As long as 360 can bash ps3 flat !!!

 

Really now, how do guys like this not get noticed and reported around here? >_>

hmm.... let me think about this for a second... done.

 

This isn't the sony forum. If I wanted to report every sony fanboy saying "x360 is suxorz lololol11!!!" in the sony forum, Almost every one of them would be gone.

I like 3 players in the market. The only reason Microsoft and Nintendo was able to do what they did this gen though is because Sony acted like they did have a monopoly. You cant take your customers for granted... ever!

 

Sony acted like the "cool" 30 year old trying to hang out with teenagers.  They think they have everything going for them.  In reality everyones ignoring them as best as they can while laughing behind their back.  I used to be one of those guys that thought the ps3 was gonna stomp the 360.  Now I only use my ps3 for blu-ray and the occasional ps3 exclusive worth playing.  Yes, they do finally exist.  Finally.

 

im actually the other way round, i use my 360 as a hd-dvd player and only play the odd game that i find in the 2 for £20 range. in fact i dont even bother with the 360 exclusives as i get more enjoyment out of ps3 exclusives.

il be getting resistance 2 this week, then a few weeks later socom then onto killzone........what a good time to be a ps3 owner.

2009 releases are looking thin on my hd-dvd player, but on ps3 there looking great



...not much time to post anymore, used to be awesome on here really good fond memories from VGchartz...

PSN: Skeeuk - XBL: SkeeUK - PC: Skeeuk

really miss the VGCHARTZ of 2008 - 2013...

On topic though:



Competition can be good, and bad.

One case in point: The wii. Nintendo releases trash casual games, and experiences we have all done before because the market eats them all up because of the brand name :

(sonic AND mario? OMG!)
(mario baseball..)
( Even their upcoming line of re-released gamecube titles....)


The person who wins the competition gets off easy, if they want to, that is.
I think we can all thank sony they didn't do so the last two gens.

well, you have to save money on 360 games, I mean, you are still probably paying off your ps3

Not to mention blu-ray disc prices, good lord! I'm suprised you have a 360 at  all!

When Sony killed Sega life carried on

When Microsoft kill Sony life will STILL carry on

Besides, before sony came along there was only Sega and Nintendo and everything was fine

Everything will remain fine if it comes down to just Nintendo and microsoft

Bottom line____________________



Three gaming companies i will respect forever............. SEGA, Capcom, Nintendo.

My gaming HERO= Yu Suzuki (The father of Shenmue, Virtua fighter, he's also an arcade/3D gaming PIONEER)

Proud member of the Sonic Support Squad. (not that he needs it anymore after Unleashed, Generations & All-Stars Racing)

Sony and nintendo dont deserve to make consoles.This gen they both tried to steal from the consumer.

Atleast microsoft offered something this gen that was worth the purchase.

Nintendo treating its wii like the ipod and throwing crap games at consumers.

Sony pushing a movie format and launching a console at a insane price.

Microsoft had rrod issues but atleast they offered a free 3 year warrenty.

Im sorry but i would be glad if sony was gone out the console industry and if sega was still around i would be very happy. my ps3 broke tonight and im a little upset :(
