Locked: I have lost all faith with the Sony brand

Forums - Sony Discussion - I have lost all faith with the Sony brand

@ ssj12 dead rising short!?!? I have been playing that game a solid year, and still have not finnished to the true ending. to be fair i guess if you didnt try to kill the 54k zombies or go looking for strange things to kill people with it might have been shorter

Gears came out in the first year, also coop on that was fantastic, if only it had been longer ,about a month before 1 year aniversery

I may not have liked DOA 4 as much as 2 and 3 but definatly not garbage, still a fun game with friends

Rainbow six is the best first person tatical shooter out there, now if you had complained about the splinter cell that came out around the same time you could bash that

viva pinata is missing form that list also made it in before the end of year 1

saints row, demo seemed fun but never ponnied up the chash for it

GRAW not a bad game, but i did not enjoy it as much after the switch from just ghost recon

The PS3 should be doing a lot better in 08 than in 07. Why?

-The advantage of Home, the new venture that the PS3 is starting with its Video on Demand, allowing PS3 users to download movies, which means that Sony gets to sell Sony Pictures movies without having to pay somebody else for them like microsoft has to.

-The Blu-ray should be a lot more popular in 08 than it has been this year. Lower prices for players will increase demand according to the price curve. A healthy bluray market will allow sony to produce (better) games less expensively than they are now, because BD isn't that popular yet and the more units of BD made the costs of which will go down.

-As BD gets to be more popular the value/price mental equation that consumers bring with them to help them decide whether or not a particular item is worth purchasing or not, the value or numerator portion of this heuristic will increase, meaning that the PS3 will become a lot more popular.

-The 40g model of the PS3 is going to be a big help in the 2nd and 3rd world countries, heck its going to help Sony a lot in America as far as sales go because there are plenty of consumers out there that don't care about BC and just want a cheap console.

So, give the PS3 some time and I think that it will meet your expectations for a console within a matter of months.

 I think people in 3rd world countries have a few more things to worry about than game consoles...

As for give it some time, that's been the typical excuse for the past year and it will continue to be the excuse for the next year. 

Reggie said it best this morning (and is exactly what people were saying months ago when they though all the big PS3 games were going to come out): Pro-tip: The system that has won after the second holiday season in market has already won the console war!

 

First of all, I disagree with your logic that because of the very true fact that most people in 3rd world countries can't buy luxuries including games,, that none at all would purchase them.  In fact, the truth should be right in front of you in the "others" chart when you pop on vgchartz.com.  The third world does have some people that are rich, dude.

 

 



Thanks to kenobi after I got him to ban my old account (dallas) after someone hacked into it and being ok with me coming back under a slightly different username.  I appreciate our communication in the PMs.  Also I want to give a big thank you to vgchartz for being one of the cooler websites around. 

Oh, and I'm still the next Michael Pachter

The percentage of "rich" people in a third world country is too insginifigant to impact this conversation.

 Dead Rising should have been a 40 hour game. It easily could have been. That was a pathetically small Mall. The newest mall in Florida is 3 stories and they are building one with 6. Why couldnt they have made it that big seriously most malls in other states other then Florida puts even the 6 story one to shame. 

 On Gears - You sure? I thought it was released like a week or two after... oh well if it was then ya thats 1 more game that improves the line up but not greatly. 

 

@Alex - COD3's only negative was it wasnt on PC. It was made by the same guys that made the original which is the best of the series. In order: COD; COD4; COD3; COD2. Also to give a 1 up 2 COD games first year for PS3 1 for 360. 

 Folklore isnt an RPG. Its an action adventure title with RPG elements.

 GRAW and GRAW2 are bad due to current offerings of a high calibur. 

 Raiinbow 6... ok I just hate tactical shooters.. because they dont allow me to put my own tactics into play and run and gun at the same time. 

We are also comparing first year to first year so GT5 shouldnt have been included into your comeback.  

Warhawk's controls arent crap. Have you ever played it? You would know its the best 3rd person online only shooter game out right now.

R&C is greatly improved over the others.

ssj12, im pretty sure xbox360 dvds are not large enough to hold 40 hours of a hd game...

on topic, to early to say sony disappointing. it has only been out for a year



xbox 360, ps2 are my consoles 

 end of generation predictions: wii 106 million Xbox 360 59 million PS3 57 million  

 

@ssj12, now i have been to places with 6 story malls, a town with 54k people could not support it. it was based on the small town feel, personaly my biggest gripe with the game was zombies out of no where, and after you kill the entire population of the town by mutalating them, there really should not be that many more zombies.

COD3 sucked.... but i was not a fan of cod2 either....... one of the biggest weaknesses in my library this gen is a solid wwII first person/third person shooter.

@Blackhawk, funny i have spent that much time exploring deadrising easy. vivapinata too, really the amount of time the game takes is dependent on multiple things, the type of game, how you play it, and what you consider a gameplay hour.

Alexi: You ask everyone why the PS3 is starting off so slow. I will answer it for you.
-Lack of AAA exclusive games (improving)
-Great competition (getting worst)
-Most expensive system by far (improving)
-Lack of features that competitors have (improving)
-Bad ports (improving)
-Horrible PR and Marketing (improving)
that in a nutshell is why the PS3 is under performing.
Second, you say you have lost "faith" in the Sony brand yet you constantly remind people that you yourself will pick up a PS3 sometime in 2008, where everyone knows the majority of Sony's exclusive titles are released.... that my son, is NOT losing faith. That's called "waiting because no game at the moment appeals to me".

Anyways, only a fool would say that the PS3 "has lost" or will "win" for this current generation now. Why? b/c no one fucking knows yet. I'm sick of all these people predicting BS as if they have some kind of time machine. For example, we all know the PS2 was a huge success. When the PS2 came out it showcased games such as "fantavision" and "summoner", it's highest selling points were the built-in DVD player and (get ready for this!) POTENTIAL. Yeah, you all heard me. I know it's quite surprising isn't it?? Can you believe that people buy systems based off of future exclusive games??? it's freaking insane, i tell you. I mean what kind of morons would buy a Xbox360 for titles like Halo 3 when the system launches, obviously most people got a 360 for Kameo and Perfect Dark Zero. Anyway, my point is that the PS2 (which is the measuring stick for all home consoles) didn't exactly take off either. According to VGchartz, the PS2 had only 2 million more systems sold if the launches were aligned and was 2 times cheaper than the PS3. I sick of all these threads and post about people attempting to nail down a systems fate as "winner or failure" with only 2 years into the generation.

 



You guys that this was sarcasm? WOW. If you actually read his posts, you'd know he doesn't like it.

And remember the 'W29 has bought a PS3' thread? He was causing a bit of commotion there (not blaming you, but others did) on why he said W29 shouldn't have traded in his 360 for it.
