OOOPS! Guy Spends 900 Bucks on “3 Sony Playstation Systems”

 Sony PlayStation

 Sony Playstation 3: This is NOT!

Some poor sap spent 900 dollars on 3 original playstations NOT Three Playstation 3’s. No Controllers or Games included. This seller has no soul. This buyer has no brains.

This just goes to show that people don’t read the auction page as carefully as they should.

Sony fanboy response to thisiswaiting.com

A lame ripoff that is exclusively for bashing microsoft and XBOX. The sony defense force loves ken kutaragi and his giant enemy crabs.

I can’t say enough how infuriating all this Sony versus Microsoft stuff is making me right now. I’m going to post later about my thoughts on this in full detail when my head clears and I calmed down. I still can’t believe someone actually registered that URL. AHHHHHHH!

Europe is *pissed* about waiting for the PS3.

Someone created a site to expound on their disgust about the delay that Sony has forced on Europe.

Now matter the intentions this site has, it sure is funny. I won’t be feeling sorry for Sony while I have a few laughs at there expense. With all of the arrogant statements and broken promises, how can anyone blame them. If I were intending to get a PS3 later this year only to be told I have to wait five month’s, I would be blowing a gasket right now all the way to the store to buy the competitions offering. At least for Europeans, they have that as a choice.
Oh! I almost forgot. Arrrrrrrrgh!

The Bad News Sony Bears

Reader discretion is advised.
First, I’d like to say that I am getting pretty tired of Sony over promising to everyone to only find them selves running damage control later for not being realistic. How can a company make themselves out to be so grandiose without seeing what’s going on around them? Every week another executive or maybe even the same executive say’s something to the press that turns out to be either way off or completely wrong. Who at Sony is going to shut these nitwits up? I can’t believe they keep shooting themselves in the foot.

Just a little over week ago a higher up at Sony said that they were on target for meeting the 2 million PS3’s that were announced to be shipped for the day one launch World wide. Now we find out this past Wednesday that the estimated numbers have been cut by more than half. WTF? Not only is this some whacked out bullshit, but Europe wont be getting the PS3 until next year in March. I don’t even live in Europe and that makes me mad on behalf of them. Why can’t they learn to shut there fucking pie holes? Stop over estimated your own greatness an tell us the truth. Let us know when you know for sure what your saying is going to happen. FUCK!

Now on to Japan. The mother land of Sony is only getting 100,00 units. Need I say anything else. How fucking lame. How do you short change the territory you know is going to buy the damn thing even if they have to not eat for a week to get this thing? Is it because you know that most of the day one launch games are geared toward a western audience anyway? But, wait a minute there is a new Ridge Racer coming. I know they’ll buy that. Isn’t that what Japan really want’s. We all know there not going to buy a bunch of western centric games. All you have to do is look at the great success the Xbox 360 is having over there for that.

Im tired of talking about Sony mishaps. I’m done. No more Sony for me until futher notice.

Report: Developers are Steering Away from PS3

Is Sony’s PlayStation 3 in trouble before it even launches? Sony has been the undisputed champion of the last two console generations, towering over the competition, but now it seems like every analyst, developer and industry pundit is placing a laser sight directly on Sony’s forehead.

Well, I dont want to say I told you so. If this turns out to be true, hear this, “I told you so”. After all of the bad PR since E3 Sony has been trying to pick up the pieces from there revelation of mortgaging your house for a Blu-Ray player disguised as a gaming machine. To make matters worse, it seems nearly every Ps3 game announced is just another game in a long line of sequel’s that they espect us to keep paying for like we don’t notice that this is the millionth edition of the same game we’ve been playing for 2 generations now.

The truely sad thing about all of this is that they have all of the history they need to look at by glancing over at one of there competitors named Nintendo. After Nintendo pretty much dominated the late 80’s and the early 90’s they were in the same position Sony is in now. Nintendo was just as arrogant as Sony is now by sticking to there cartridge games versus the new and cheaper CD in a move that later turned out to kill there third party support for the N64. In return for this action most third party publishers flocked over to the Playstation giving Sony there arrogant attitude they have now thinking that they can do no wrong.

It looks like history is repeating itself once again. Is the Xbox 360 the new Playstation this time around? If so, this doesn’t look good at all for Sony. Given the fact that just about ever consumer electronic division other than Playstation at Sony is struggling against stiff competition from the likes of the Ipod and just about every other televison brand out there.
As far a Blu-Ray goes, need I say more than Beta-Max vs VHS. One was clearly better than the other, but the cheper solution prevails almost everytime. This goes for HD-DVD as well. Sony maybe pushing Blu-Ray down our throats if why do someday end up with a PS3, but at what cost is the consumer to pay for this unproven technology that cost more for very little gain if you haven’t already splurged for that other bigger purchase called HDTV.

With Sony leaning so heavily on the success of the Playstation 3, how will Sony survive if there videogame throne is snatched right from underneath them buy Nintendo or Microsoft simply because Sony time after time feels it needs to control the standard of which we all use to consume there media?

We dont need no stinkin GTA!

Over on 1up.com there's an article were a Sony rep has forwarded the Sony ship deeper into the void they are going to inevitable to be.

WTF? My Sony bashing continues because of stupid comments like, "We don't need GTA". How arrogant can you get. How can anybody say that Sony would be were there at with or without Grand Theft Auto. There stanza is that there first party line is what caused them to stronghold the industry to the point it has.

My opinion on this is that many people bought a PS2 to play GTA in return allowing those said people to have the console to play all those Sony first party titles. They in return say that a franchise like Gran Tourismo has greatly out sold Halo. The problem is that Halo is the only franchise out there that is guaranteed millions of sales just because of the name Halo. How can you compare an established franchise like Gran Tourismo against a start-up that just showed up this past/or current generation of consoles. I do remember that there were two GT's on the original Playstation. Doesn't this already guarantee a fan-base for GT going into the PS2 GT's. Don't try to compare that to a new franchise like Halo that single handedly put Xbox on the map.

I have allot more where this came from, but I think I'll keep it to that for now.

Xbox 360 and the works!

360stationcubecast

Over on the Gamespot Xbox 360 Forums someone posted this nice 360 Dashdoard pic. It has an extra blade added where you could play not only Xbox games, but Playstation 2, Playstation, Gamecube, and Dreamscast. After seeing this I feel I could do better, but if Microsoft could some how pull this off for real I'd be all for it.
