OP: Here's the short version; the PS3 is not the PS2.



End of 2016 hardware sales:

Wii U: 15 million. PS4: 54 million. One: 30 million. 3DS: 64.8 million. PSVita: 15.2 million.

Ps3 owners are lazy, like to sleep alot and watch Blu-Rays.

360 owners are crazy, like to drink energy drinks and swear over headsets.

First day: Halo 3 (360) - 2500,000+ 
First day: Gears of War 2 (360) - 2100,000

2 days: Killzone 2 (PS3) - 323,000
October debut: Little Big Planet (PS3) - 215,000


Why is this? Fucking WHY? It's insane to me. Killzone 2 was the most hyped PS3 game ever made fans and fanboys had been yelling about this game since E3 2005 or whatever. What the hell happened and why don't the Triple boys buy games? Loss of sales can't be blamed on piracy either.

Can someone explain this to me, please? Will God of War 3 push numbers like this too? ICO 3 confirmed for 50k sales? Ugh..

Real marketing > Internet hype

We are fake gamers.
We buy our PS3's for BluRay only.
We like to hype, not play.
etc...

I am just surprised at how many times we see a "Sony fails at this", "PS3 fans this", "PS3 is doomed", etc. thread yet where are all the anti-MS threads at?

Where is the "Star Ocean 4 is a flop" threads? What makes this worse is that everyone seems to think the PS3 fans are the worst. The biggest crime they commit is hyping their games.

 

We have to keep in mind that this is mainly an american site, and these days, after the PS2 domination, most americans who are hardcore gamers, went for the Xbox 360 as their console of choice.

So we have american hardcore gamers promoting their console, often times in a fanboyish manner, which even happens to be a creation of their own country. This results in the constant hate and bashing we see toward Sony and the PlayStation brand these days. As I have said before though, it's hypocritical since just a mere 2 or 3 years ago they probably would have been drooling over anything PS2 related.

People in general have selective and short term memory only if it provides them with a sense of comfort.

As opposed to all the stupidity Sony has pulled like "last-gen = rumble," $600 price tag, "power of teh cell," and no BC-skus.

No, I don't think people need help from old-fashioned nationalism to be negative about Sony.  Sony gives them plenty of reasons on its own.



Blu Ray perhaps. Maybe 15% of PS3 owners mainly use the machine as a movie player and attach rate becomes smaller.

Also, Little Big planet is a type of game that sells over a long period of time.

And Killzone 2 was kinda late to the game, being released 2.5 years after Gears of wars. In that long time there have been so many other shooters to choose from for PS3 owners already.



Uncharted has so many shooter elements that it can be categorized as a shooter. Same for GTA and to some degree MGS as well.

Sony has provided them with plenty of reasons for that, I agree. But that is in the past and the company has taken quite a few steps to distance itself from that arrogant stance of 2/3 years ago.

What you have now, is the beating of a dead horse by a gang of rabid fanboys that don't know how to stop or even recognize that they should because things have changed. The detail here is, the horse is not dead, but rather just limping and in recovery of the wound.

Only people who consider that game a "shooter" are the uninformed. Sorry no offense.

Find me a gaming site that has it classfied under "3rd Person Shooter" and not "Action/Adventure".

 



iPhone = Great gaming device. Don't agree? Who cares, because you're wrong.

Currently playing:

Final Fantasy VI (iOS), Final Fantasy: Record Keeper (iOS) & Dragon Quest V (iOS)
