Sony is nothing but a lying, uncaring company. They stole the PS1 tech from Nintendo and claimed it as their own. This was even on TechTV on how they did it.

Sony and Sony fanboys should burn in hell.

Their main target audience is children, and they messed it up, by making it at a price most children can't afford (£500=$1000) Now I wouldn't have bought a ps3 anyway, since they stole their ideas from nintendo (A while ago, Sony, Nintendo, and another company decided to make a console together, but in the middle of it, sony ran off with the ideas and made the ps2.) but many people I know would have. Heck, even someone I know who gets £32.50 ($65) didn't get it. And NamelessMC, have you ever done professional market analysis? What exactly is your job?
I agree that the PS3 Blue Ray move was the worst move that Sony did, second was the Cell processor. Cell is a super fast calculator not good for regular programing. The reason that I sold my PS3 is for these reasons. I am not a PS3 hater just finally realized what was happening and jumped ship. Any time you shove DRM down the throats of your buyers it is not a good thing!

Are you kidding. What a joke, how about doing research before making such retarded statements. The PS2 was a wild success.

http://www.forbes.com/technology/200...aymatchup.html

Last christmas, even, was one of the best years ever for PS2. They sold almost better than xbox 360s in 2006.

Im not a Sony fanboy, nor a Microsoft fanboy. I just hate it when people make wild, unfounded statements like that.

That's the first thing that corssed my mind. This guy sure the heck has a much better idea of what's going on then most of the people on this site as well.

Right...becase the other two gaming consoles have NOTHING to do with how the PS3 is doing...

One major title completely changed the face of the 360: Fact.

The same analysts that called the 360 a rocky system are now backtracking and calling it a success: Fact.

It's so easy to kick the PS3 when Sony's down, but Sony can fall? Give me a break. Their TV's, Blu-Ray players, Laptops, surround sound systems and work station software tell me otherwise.
Like Audi said, I never heard anyone say that the 360 was going to fail...not once. And one title did not save the 360...I love every one of my 360 games...DoA4, PGR3, GoW,...I am bored and don't feel like listing any more.

Now Sony fanboys are saying the same crap about the PS3...bet they dont know its cost Sony about $3 billion so far. And M$ isnt stupid. As soon as Sony drops the price on the PS3 theyre gonna do the same thing on the 360...and then Nintendo will follow and drop the price on the Wii. Sony screwed up this generation...face it. Forcing people to buy a Blu Ray player was a bad idea...people dont like being forced to buy stuff they dont need.
AMEN!!

They bombed? I loved both those systems. They didn't do FANTASTIC, but they didn't shoot themselves in the foot.

Sony is not dead. PS3 is not dead. It's just slow.

...A competitive title from PS3, a Gears of War style title on PS3, combined with a price drop is all Sony has to do to put the PS3 back on the map.

Comparatively speaking, the PS3 isn't any more dead than the 360 was. The sales on the 360 have been lackluster since the market giant Nintendo Wii surfaced, so really the PS3, at worst is just tied with the 360, with the 360 having more market share from early release.

Any professional "analyst" that actually knew technology, and not just how much the system's cost and what people say about them, would see beyond that.

kind of find it funny for your first quote about how someone in an unrelated field has no idea and now change it to he is an analyst and that doesn't mean much. yet you preach and speak a lot more then this analyst does... so what is your job again? do you work for one of the mags? oh wait your a student right? hope it is something about the gamnig market cause if not according to your own words what you say means nothing. look back how often you ranted about the 2900 making your predictions and even now your making your predictions and saying how the market is and how things will happen. so where do you get your knowledge from that makes you a credible source.

[QUOTE=Guruboy;2220223]If you compare how well a company does in terms of competing with another company's, similar product(s), you are a fanboy. That's the only conclusion I can make here. Unless the PS3 is doing SO bad that major game developers actually pull out (seriously, an exclusive becoming cross-platform doesn't matter), then this is a completely unnecessary little article.
QUOTE]

it's actually not uncommong to compare one product to another in a competing field without being a fanboy. happens all the time when trying to figure out how one product is doing against others it's trying to get sales against. or would you mean to tell me if you are thinking of buying a stock in a company you wouldn't worry at all on how it is faring against other products? think about it if a product isn't doing that well against others that might be a sign of trouble... or nah that's just fanboism if you worry about that right? exclusive titles also can make a difference with sales as well. back in the nintendo days how many people do you think bought a nintendo for final fantasy, mario brothers or one of the many other series that nintendo only had? there are people out there like that.

lol some funny comments in this thread...


What people don't realize (including BoA) is that the PS3 along with the 360 isn't just a console for today, it is a console for the future, they both are, while the Wii is more of a today console with it's low-priced hardware and a horrible CPU.

The new Playstation and the 360 will be on the market for more than a decade meaning they both will drop in prices eventually, sell a ****load of consoles eventually and eventually earn more money than the Wii because it simply can't compare with it's *lacking* hardware. Note keyword: "eventually".

I am a big fan of many of Sony's games, I've never liked either a Nintendo or an X-box even though I am of what one might wanna call the "nintendo generation"
They just don't click for me, I had a pre-order out for the PS3 but I reconsidered since I am worried about it's reliability more than I am worried of the few games currently out, it is a thing of the future and if a person would get to enjoy it's potential rather than wasting money, it needs to be reliable in the long run. That is my other consern with the PS3, I thought about getting the 360 while I waited for the PS3 but meh... I can't stand that thing.. I can't play on it either... controller is.. fat.. clumpy... and meh...

And to those of you who seem to belive that the PS3 is dead... Well, it's not even awake yet, but it will be.
