So what the hell was Sony thinking this gen?

Disclaimer: I like the PS3 and think it's overall a pretty decent system

Starting the price at $599? - Had no problems with it, in fact I've bought 3 of them. You get what you pay for.

Releasing the controller without rumble? - I consider this a selling point. Rumble is a dumb 90s gimmick.

Letting big name PS2 exclusive series like Final Fantasy, Devil may Cry, and Tekken go multiplatform - All 3 series have gone downhill at this point anyway, so it didn't really matter

Games like TLG and Versus 13 having no release in sight - That's an odd and very specific criticism.

Removing PS2 BC? - Yup. Stupid, stupid, stupid. Biting the hand that feeds. If the PS4 doesn't have it, I won't get one. Period.

Not taking preventative measures against the PSN hack(though they handled the aftermath well) - To be fair it could have happened to anyone.

Sony has really been dropping the ball this gen. What's been up? They were the kings with the PS2
. - The rise of the smart phone, Facebook, and the Wii has shifted the big $$$ to casual gamers, who are less likely to buy a PS3.


what a bigass fanboy you are xD

It was originally given an other OS option, an internet browser and was marketed as an entertainment console and yet they went cheap on the ram to save production costs.

They were thinking 3rd place was good enough I guess.

i'm also force myself to play my PS2 console on a terrible graphics look on my HDTV which is 42" Samsung and my PS3 isn't BC because of certain models that allowed me to play my PS2 on a better graphics or don't play at all.

The absence of rumble doesn't help in any way since you can disable it even if you didn't like it. Versus XIII in particular was a game that was the reason for MANY people buying PS3 in the first place, it was supposed to be a system seller(I had an 360 and wanted a PS3 just for that game). The PSN wouldn't have happened to ANYONE, they were easy targets and the hack was the result of displeasure with Sony in the first place. The series mentioned have gone downhill arguably because they didn't retain exclusivity(not sure about Tekken but I can vouch for the other 2).

This is directed at the guy labelled fanboy

70 Million plus sold, making them neck and neck with the 360 despite launching a year later at a much higher price point?

yeah.....what were they thinking....

DmC looks like a good game. I also enjoyed the latest Final Fantasy and Resident Evil games. I like video games.

Releasing the controller without rumble?


Was a copyright issue with another company that was eventually resolved.

Letting big name PS2 exclusive series like Final Fantasy, Devil may Cry, and Tekken go multiplatform


Sony doesn't own any of the respective companies so why do they have to remain loyal?

Games like TLG and Versus 13 having no release in sight


Yeah, it's Sony's fault that Square Enix hasn't finished a game yet! GRR SONY!

Removing PS2 BC?

Not taking preventative measures against the PSN hack(though they handled the aftermath well)


Only legitimate arguments and they're both old as dirt.

-I have WWE 13, and guess what? It rumbles and there is no option to turn it off. Pisses me right off.

-Are you really going to argue that FFXIII was thought of as some killer app? Who thought it was going to be a system seller? FF as a series was already in major decline since the last well-received entry, FFX. Most people hated XI and XII, and really just wanted a remake of earlier games in the series, especially VII.

-XBL has been hacked multiple times. It's something everyone with an online service has a risk of.

-First, you cry "oh no" because a couple of series you value went multiplat, and then you say "well, they suck anyway because they went multiplat." That really makes no sense.
