Is this what happens when you come out the same year as Sony?

you do realize the 360 came out BEFORE ps3...and ps3 had such a bad price/launch that it took them almost 4 years to get out of the gutter slump?


Okay.. ps3 game out a year later, at a much higher price, had a HORRIBLE launch.. and still beat 360. You aren't helping your case here.


if you want to talk about the real winner, MS earned much more profit. the ps3 fiasco cast sony a ton of money.

why od you think sony, as a business that screwed over customers when it was doing well, (ps2 era) suddenly bends over backwards to please the gamers?

microsoft tried to move forward with its vision of gaming and sony stayed put and used that as a vantage to attack MS in the PR campaign.

in the end sony is making up for lost profit from the ps3 by staying where it's at and appeasing gamers.

don't think this is good guy sony....they are just playing an amazing PR game right now making all the right moves.

you'll see down the road when sony is making money again how much they will care about gamers.



You actually said what makes you a good company. I think your saying wait and see they will screw you. Could be true, but Msoft is outright screwing us now. I rather have a good console for 3 years that have a bad one right now.

Aye I realise it was a gimmick, but in the end it sold more and made Nintendo a lot of profit.

how are they screwing you? a ton of these ideas of MS "screwing" you are so blown out of proportion that it hurts.

drm - no more

indie developers - much better toolkit now and much better and friendlier policies equalling sony

hardware specs - comes down to architecture and developers, but many developers pro MS and Pro sony said the consoles are almost identical in power just like last gen

xbl vs ps online - 99% of gamers play online anyway...and if you play solo you have ther outlets for things behind the "paywall" so it's honestly illogical to whine about it. people just feel their pride or rights have been hurt or whatever. they expect everything on a damn silver platter.

kinect - microsoft chooses to make it a part of their system so it costs 100 more, but its still not screwing anyone over, you pay 100 more but you get kinect 2.0. it's not as if you are paying 100 more for the same system with no kinect. it comes down to personal choice. microsoft doesnt have to not include kinect becasue some people dont like it. they choose to sell their product with kinect, we choose to either buy or not buy

there is no screwing over going on, it's just people pissing and moaning and blowing everything out of proportion becasue MS had a bad e3 press release, sony made them look like a bad company and they have been trying to recover ever since.

Kind of my whole point Im NOT getting screwed. But, I just dont like the policies they attempted to implement. I honestly believe its only because of Sony its gone.

Its funny how the Ponies never look at the big picture. How many supporters did the Playstation 3 lose when compared to the PS2? And how many supporters did the Xbox 360 gain compared to the original Xbox? Yeah Sony lost BIG.

And I guess that why they all seem to be coming right back. 600 and a year after. Yeah you going to lose alot. MSFT try something like that if they want to and end up shutting that whole division down.
