"All games will be 1080p, X360 is only partial HD at 720p. PS3 is TruHD!!"

Sony's flagship launch title is 720p.

"The PS3 has 2 HDMI ports!!!"

The PS3 has 1 HDMI port.

"PS3 is backwards compatible with all PS2/PS1 games"

We know what happened here.

"tEH cELL will create mind blowing graphics!!! blowing away the X360!"

X360 has the best looking games and is only getting better with games like GoW.

"PS3 online will blow away Xbox Live! Sony surveyed gamers!!"

It's a joke compared to XBL. Sony learned nothing of Microsoft's improvements. Can't download in background? DUH SONY? How long did XBL users ask MS for this? You couldn't come out the gate with it?

"The PS3 will end the format war at launch!!!"

Nothing happened.

"Sony will be able to ship more consoles than MS did at launch!"

Nope.


The silence is deafening from the PS3 Musketeers concerning these statements. Of course they'll eat whatever Sony bull**** is fed into their mouths.

Not to mention most of the launch titles got pushed back to 2007, most of their exclusives are on the 360 too.

Don't even get me started about their horrendous PS1 downloading service. You seriously mean to tell me I need a PSP to use it? I can't play them on a normal TV? What the hell?! I could pop the disc in and away I go, but if I pay for it again and download it I'm locked into 3 inch screen or whatever the PSP has? Are PSP sales really so bad they have to resort to cheap tricks like this?

I mean I missed out on the PS1 games, so I've been itching to pick up Final Fantasy Tactics, Final Fantasy 7, Vagrant Story and a few others. But I keep getting my bids sniped on ebay (assholes) so I was sort of hoping that this would work out on the PS3 when I heard about the service. But if I have to buy a PSP if and when these games eventually come out, nuts to that.

You really needed two HDMI outs?

And sorry, 200 out of what? 8000 games are unsupported.... OMG LETZ AL GO TU TEH 360 TO PLAI SOME CHITTY XBOX GAEMS THAT MAY WORX!#@... All MS cares about is if Halo works... nothing else matters, and Halo sucks terribly.

I also love how you complain about the lack of downloading in the background, even though it took XBL a few months to get the same damn thing.

Face the facts, you are a moron.

How does everyone feel about evilchris' failure at life?

if you have at least half of a brain, you should be able to figure long time ago that sony is full of BS.

it was excactly the same story with PS2, all these amazing promises, but as long as there will be dumb people, sony is somewhat safe.

BS thread

Right now, Sony didn't deliver 'much' indeed if you'd take old press statements all too seriously and literally, about a gameconsole which was still in development ( yeah, even the final casing changed in late stadium of development ).

People are just way to hasty and preassumptive, jumping to conclusions all
over the place.

PS2 delivered eventually, for ALOT of people. Yeah, maybe not the games which hardcore PC gamers typically like but it did deliver a great PS2 library imo. At the time of the 'jaggies scandal' they wrote off the PS2 prematurely as well. Hail Dreamcast they shouted...

Oh I see. The lies are all ok because you don't like Halo and you don't need two HDMI outs.

I also MENTIONED IN MY POST that MS took awhile, does that mean Sony needs to take awhile? It's easy. If Sony had a brain they;d learn from MS's mistakes and not make them.

Face the facts, you are gay.

I'll gladly compare my life to yours anyday. Happily married, tons of friends, homeowner, plenty of money, great family. How about yourself hunt? I see you sitting in your parents basement with pizza boxes stacked 10 feet high and Flatley posters stuck on the wall with your own jizz.

Pretty sure it was the plan all along bud. There will be pc to psp downloads though thats not available yet. So you wont need a ps3 to download them. And after xmas you wont need a psp to play them on the tv. But whatever makes you sleep better. FF tactics, FF7, and Vagrant Story arent even available to buy right now so I don't see why you are stressing it currently.

if they are not sure they can deliver on certain promise, then don't make them, its easy as that.

instead of creating hype and fueling all idiots out there

It's not retarded, since it was the plan, it was expected. Working on emulation takes time. Of all people, 360 owners should know that best.

Promises on certain hardware / peripherals / features, aside...

Nobody knows jack **** atm at what games will shape the PS3 library.
It's way too early to make that judgement.

There'll be PS3 games which will define the PS3 gameslibrary and establish it as a force to be reckoned with.

What ppl cannot see right now, they don't believe. That's how most ppl's minds work. They can't comprehend beyond short term, short sighted thinking.

A year or 1,5 year from now, a PS3 might very well be worth the purchase ; delivering a great gaming experience, despite that it isn't 100% exactly inline with pre launch statements about petty hardware feature promises.

But...it's not an emulation issue! The PS3 can already play PS1 games! It's an artificial boundary to sell more PSPs and nothing more!

Saying "It's not retarded because it's the plan" is the most logically fallacious thing I've ever heard! If I made a plan to spend $500 on stock for the Phantom console every month as an investment strategy, does that make it not retarded just because thats the plan?

So, now you're just going out of your way to act like a shill.

Sony *defined* the PS3 as the "dawn of HD", since everything would be 1080p. Is that petty?

So the PS3 is able to play CDs? Or is it a special case because it's game data on the PS1 discs opposed to music data?

And does the PS3 play SACD?

lol, do you even know what is going on? We are talking emulation. There are no discs involved. How do you think the psp is playing these games. The ps3 will be using similar methods

Harrison also explained how the PS1 downloads will initially be for play only on the PSP, but will later work on the PS3 when the emulation software is available. The beauty is that one download will be playable on both PlayStation machines, console and portable. According to Harrison, we can expect the games to be playable on PS3 by year's end. Of course, actual PS1 and PS2 games (not downloaded) will play on the PS3 right from the start.
the date on this was 10/20/2006, as I said this was expected and should be no surprise. Something that should be no surprise and known for ages is all of a sudden some controversial marketing ploy?

I ask again why are you even stressing it. The games you wanted arent even available yet (and we dont even know if they will be in the future).


And does the PS3 play SACD?
afaik, yes. though talks of it being improved have been mentioned on other forums.

It's still 'dawn' and a large percentage of gamers still don't even have a true 1080P panel.

In any case ; i would choose a brilliant game from the makers of Ico ( Sony 1st party dev ) over generic shooter # billion, even if the latter features a higher resolution.

Of course, i'm enjoying X360 gaming right now. If PAL PS3'd be available now, i would even hold off getting a PS3, but i really do think it'll be worth it eventually.

Ico team, Silent Hill makers etc etc. All worth waiting for another year.

there's already games like Lair coming up which, correct me if i'm wrong, was stated to be 1080P, right ?

I think that as time goes on the PS3 will be well worth it especially as the decent games begin to hit. I cant wait to get mine.

Amazing. I can't understand why anyone would "not be able to wait" to shell out $600 for a piece of crap.

Sony, while completely inept at producing a console, are geniuses at brainwashing morons into giving them money. I really need to figure out how Sony does this. I take 3 ****s a day. With Sony's ability, I could make like $1800 a day for sitting on the toilet!

That doesn't even make sense! Explain to me how it could be an emulation issue? What, they have to emulate a CD-drive? Oh god, thats impossible! How in the world will they ever pull that off. I'm sure it does have to be emulated on the PSP, but I wasn't talking about the PSP, I was talking about the PS3, which can play PS1 games off a CD, so there is no legitimate reason I wouldn't be able to play them off the HD. Period. End of discussion. You are wrong.

It annoys me because its so close to a feature I would use, but instead they expect me to shell out $200 on a PSP in addition to the $600 for a PS3 just so I can play those 10 year old games on a 3 inch screen, when there is no legitimate reason I shouldn't be able to play them on my 32 inch screen, without the PSP.

I guess I'm stuck trying to avoid bid snipers on ebay till then.

Peharps you STFU and crawl back into that s******e you sprouted from. I will be buying a PS3 as soon as its released here because my favourite games will be coming out for it. Get it? If you dont like it thats your business.
