Was the PS3 this infamous at launch?

-$599.99 price
-Lack of launch games
-Lack of rumble
-Iffy backwards compatibility
-Lack of games

I think we all know that the PS3(justifiably) got very little love at the beginning of its life cycle, but was it anywhere as bad as the amount shear hate that the Xbox One is getting at the moment?

I'm sure people can draw parallels to the situation.
Though I do believe you can't apply the PS3 bouncing back to the Xbox One.

Hmm, somehow and somewhere a mod is being alerted. But no Ps3 wasn't this infamous.

The thing with PS3 was more like "let's post on the 360 board how they must buy 3 20gb harddrives, the HD-DVD addon, 5 HD-DVD movies, 3 extra controllers and 5 years of Xbox Live Gold to be close to the same level as the PS3, which makes it more expensive than the PS3, which means that it justifies me paying $600 for it".

Christ those were bad days, really weird days those were. But no, it wasn't at this level. Kudos to M$ for one-upping Sony on this one.

No, and before the 180s, xbox deserved to be more infamous.

After, I'd say it's mostly because xbox fanboys don't really use the internet boards here and other places as much. Sony fanboys were going nuts around PS3, and there were a LOT. Xbox One, seems like a handful of delusionals in comparison.

The only thing people really balked at with the PS3 was the ridiculous price point.

The Xbox One and Microsoft managed to alienate much of the industry and its consumers with MANY more things than just the console's price.
