and just in case some sony fans have something to say about what microsoft have given us let me refresh you memory
there is nothing wrong with liking sony and the playstation, playstation had some memorable games that was at the time exclusive to playstation that a lot of gamers remember and enjoyed and hence there loyal devotion to sony and playstation I understand I myself am a sega fan and still is.
There is nothing wrong with having loyal devotion for a company
but when you go off and start trash talking a company you are going too far
you can state your dislike for a product or company but it's how you go about doing it.
I had to learn that like I said I am guilty of trash talking in the past
but I have matured I guess some of you guys have not matured.
so what have microsoft done since they came into the game.
I might miss some.
1 - first console to have a harddrive and ethernet port built into the console
2 - first company to offer a unified (worldwide) online gaming service, example if I am in the us and you are in the uk I can play with you.
3 - First company to put first-person shooter games on console on the map via HALO.
4 - First company to have wireless controllers and a gaming headset out of the box via Xbox 360 premium system.
5 - First company to offer High Definition Gaming.
6 - First company to offer a gaming identity via (gamertags) on console.
7 - First company to offer achievements in videogames.
8 - First company to offer downloadable content ex: games and game demo's videos and movies on console.
9 - First company to offer video chat and text messaging on console.
10 - First company to offer media streaming from PC to console.
11 - The only to company to offer more PC ports than any other console.
12 - The first company to bring offer all your favorite classic games on console via Xbox Live Arcade.
13 - The first company to offer dlc for games such as extra characters weapons and maps for console.
14 - First company to bring real-time game recording in a game via Halo 3.
15 - Finally first company to offer Full body gaming via Kinect.
Now there is probably some I may have missed.
But no real gamer can tell me with a straight face that none of this matters they maybe able to say it over the internet
just to be spiteful or sarcastic but can never tell me that to me face to face.
and here is a word of thought how much did SONY do for gaming with playstation.
All I can see is sony is the:
1 - First company to offer Movie playback out of the box via DVD and Bluray
2 - The first company to have dual analog sticks on a gaming controller (somebody correct me if I am wrong)
(please tell me anymore that I have missed)
and then you have to say how much did DVD and bluray (movie playback do for games)
all I can think of is in game cut scenes.
and last time I checked final fantasy 13 runs just fine on DVD.
Now tell me Sony the company some of you place above Microsoft have done more than Microsoft
In my eyes sony has done little for gaming versus microsoft and nintendo and almost all the features you see in the
Playstation 3 is a direct result of sony copying the ideas of Microsoft and Nintendo.
Nothing is wrong with copying ideas but you sony fans need to just admit the truth because it is clear.
Love your playstation but dont trash talk other gaming consoles.
Enjoy your trophies.
LMFAO @ this guy
..you are O.D defensive
Yea you are right. This is just all the built up anger at all the HATE that has been thrown against microsoft and xbox 360 on (VGCHARTZ) since
about 2004 when Xbox 360 was rumored to come out.
Microsoft went out and did a damn fine job of creating a console for us gamers to enjoy (whatever microsofts reason is for getting in the game
industry greed, money, monopolize the games industry) it does not matter, I am sure Sony is not in the games industry because they want to
bring joy and happiness to gamers everywhere and neither is nintendo or any company. (Hello they are all in it for money) and I am also sure
that if both Sony and Nintendo got the chance to monopolize the gaming industry they would.
Microsoft went out and did a damn fine job of creating a console for us gamers to enjoy
and all the sony fanboys did was just hate hate hate
It's not microsofts fault the xbox 360 is ahead of the playstation 3 go tell your beloved company to not launch a console for $600.
It's really disgusting to me
A company goes out and works hard, the Xbox 360 didn't just appear out of thin air.
It took years of planning and work by 100s of employees in and out of microsoft along with the right timing and strategy to make the Xbox 360
the unquestionable (success) that it is today.
There is no question that the playstation 3 is a great platform, the exclusives on the playstation 3 have not convinced me I neet to get
a playstation 3, but the playstation 3 is a sweet piece of technology.
