what why arent they 1:1 iso's of game discs? that doesnt even make sense! the only thing they need to emulate is a cd-driver! and it should work on the ps3 or they are doing something horribly wrong.

stop with the "programming" BS! Its just more of Sony BS...
they just want to trick people into buying the psp...

It's pretty clear that us owners and supports really don't give a crap about what you have to say.
I have owned a ps1 and own a ps2 now and I love em both. Also own a psp but I like the NDS better
Hell one of the best games I have ever played are on the ps2, God of War..

But the ps3 is crap, its just too little too late.

In the voice of Mr. T: "I pity the foo who buy a PS3".

Seriously, $500 (more like $600 since the 20gb looks like it can't be found, or so I've heard, maybe I'm wrong!), for like what, 1 game and a bunch of demos? Puh-leaze. The Wii looks like so much more fun. For the moment I'll stick to my Xbox 360 that I've had for 6 months now. Might buy a Wii sometime. With Gran Turismo HD cancelled and GT5 prolly like 1-1.5 year away, no PS3 for me for a long time.

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...
That's simply not true.

Sony didn't do a bit of "old press statements" that everybody "wildly misinterpretted" and "took too seriously", Sony LIED and they did so on NUMEROUS OCCASIONS and what's worse, they're the first and best company to go out and pick on the other companies for not being next-gen or HD enough.

No one was hasty or anything. Sony let out too much BS and brought it all on themselfs.

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.

Anyway to answer the question of the title, I simply feel disappointed and relieved at the same time. On one hand I would have like to see another really cool console with a lot of great features and games on the market so I could go about and dream of buying a PS3, maybe doing so one day. At least trying it at a friends house for some awesome experiences I couldn't get with my Xbox360. On the other hand I'm relieved that Sony is so weak this time around (at least the first year after launch, which gives X360 a two-year lead) because the competition between X360 and PS3 will probably be more equal given that the aware consumer will buy the X360 and the ignorent consumer/hardcore Playstation fan will buy PS3, probably making them about equal in the end. No doubt the PS3 owners are the real losers in this initial PS3 failure, so as a X360/Wii owner, I don't care that much in the end.

With the Xbox-name so good established on the market now, I feel that I would be better if they were more equally attractive in the next-next-gen

Well, personally, I never take anything either of the $$$ companies say seriously. I just KNOW that the games will be awesome on the new console, and thats about it. Its a very smart-ass attitude to say that sony underdelievered, while knowing very well there was no chance in hell anything like that will happen over night. I take everything sony said just like everything MS said (like the rediculous claim of the ZEN of gaming...).

Everyone should know by now that everything these people say is said with the wrong time-affiliated words. You (everyone that is) knows very well that bombastic claims like the ones we were hearing are aimed at the future, not present.

And with this I offer one more time to open a flame-only console wars sub-forum in this blasted section of the website.

Don't lie to yourself. Sony didn't make little exaggerations but downright lies all the way through. And you can't compare Microsoft and Sony in the field of lying in any way. Microsoft did the usual "We Microsoft, the industrial leaders, hereby announces the absolute leading edge console with ZEN gaming and bla bla bla", but no specific promises they couldn't kept. Sony were specific in their promises (which many of them they broke) and the the hints they gave the public about the PS3's capabilities with Motorstorm/Killzone2 presentation wasn't innocent exaggerations - the intentions of deceit is clear here. Exercising hindsight, saying you never believed in ANYTHING ANYONE said is easy. It's also cheap because many of the things evilchris mentions in the first post are realistic, not some obvious far-fetched marketing BS. And it still doesn't change who the biggest BS'er was and it doesn't change that many people believed many of Sony's promises.

Oh common, the thing was just released... and you say that you didnt believe them either, so whats the problem? And for the record, ZEN of gaming = everything Sony said. So lets not play the who is filthier here please, were not kids. Atleast most of us here arent. I hope.

Like someone else on this forum said, the PS2 eventually delivered far beyond expectations. So I think you can appreciate that these lies, while they are still lies, are only lies for so long, eh? And Im talking about the stuff that we actually care about, not the 1HDMI vs 2HDMIs.....

People took 'the Zen of gaming' literally? It's a figure of speech for 'it's going to be great'.

That's not lying.

To be honest, the only lie Microsoft made that comes to mind was when they said that anybody would be able to sell any of their custom creations on the marketplace.

Then again, they have given us XNA and the creators club within a year, which is rather exciting and more than I ever thought they'd pull off. I mean seriously, with a name like XNA it just sounds like pure marketing BS. But they've been delivering.

But still. How is Skatefan64 going to sell his custom board designs for Tony Hawk?! Or whatever lame example they used.

At least the stuff they lied about was stuff I'm not sure anybody cared about. As opposed to, I don't know, "Aging SD Content".

Give me a break. Stop spitting out bull**** and give us some concrete examples. We have given you plenty of lame Sony lies. Your turn.
