why could you hate a PS3? - Page 7

post #61 of 64
So far, I haven't seen an exclusive for it yet that really makes me want to buy it. It's got MGS, and FF, both amazing, but the others? GoW is 360's answer to Resistance(Halo trumping them both), and most of the others just aren't impressive enough to warrant buying the system.

As far as the controller goes, it's nifty, that's about it. They saw Wii, thought "OmG, we can copy it a bit, make people want us more!" And the layout just doesn't work as well for FPS. Now, for fighting games, where players use the D-pad, it works better, but who uses a D-pad? =P

As far as reliability goes, I don't really know. My 360's fine, and I've watched as my buddy had to wait 6 weeks when his Ps3 croaked.

Don't know what this "folding" thing is.

Blu Ray is overated, I think. VERY few blu ray DVDs, they are more expensive, and I think it's going to lose to HDDVD. And, I've heard things about Blu Ray discs being read slower than normal discs, something about how the data is compartmentalized.

Actually Blu Ray won because Toshiba threw in the towel like sissies. I don't blame them though. Many movie companies decided to up and quit at the same time. I think Sony "slid them some money under the table" personally.

Since in 2008/9 you've got all its exclusives and the ability to stick your blu-rays in and play them and your GTA:IV game and leave it folding while you go to work.. the title of this thread answers itself.. 'why could you hate a PS3?'... you're blindly supporting the xbox despite anything else, or if all else fails.. you're not willing to spend a penny of your money.

In my case.. just buy a 360 premium and a PS3 for £550 and be done with it. The PS3 will do more but if you ever need to play games that are only on 360 then you're sorted. Its not much of a price to pay..

Not much of a price to pay? Have you never been between jobs or self employed? Getting along is far from easy when you don't have a steady paycheck each week. I live with my Dad at the moment and have been job searching for months. I have a few bills and I can barely keep up by doing odds and ends. Not everyone gets to enjoy the luxury of buying tons of nice things. My Dad is self employed contractor/Furniture Restorer. He works out of his Truck and his Tool shed. he gets by but some months are harder than others. He has never worked a shift job and frankly he's too old to learn a new trade. I just want you to know that not everyone has the luxury of splurging.

EDIT: Sorry for the double post. I'm used to another vBulliten forums that auto merges

I love everything about the PS3. I HATE its horrible (imo) game selection. I bought one, played three games, purchased one new-release blu-ray for the ripoff price of $30, and then decided to sell it.

Awesome piece of hardware, incredible waste of money. Fix game selection, make Blu-ray movies not a rip-off, and I may be won back.
