Rant: Are PlayStation 3 Bashers & 360 Fanboys Getting Annoying?

400°
294w ago - YES! For the past couple of days we have only read "Xbox 360 dominates PlayStation" or "Sony Dying". It's getting so annoying that it's hard to look around for what gamers are most interested in.

Now in it's second year with millions of gamers, the Sony PlayStation 3 still takes bashes from people who love to play only the Xbox 360. They explain they're opinions and why they think PlayStation 3 is a failure. Well it's my turn:

I'm not taking a side. PlayStation 3 is a amazing gaming console which I have hours and hours of fun playing. It has the most incredible exclusive list, the visuals are extraordinary. The Xbox 360 is also another amazing game which I also had hours and hours of gaming fun.

It has a very nice online setup, and some really great exclusive games. People who take 30 minutes of their lives to write up articles on their website saying things that is absolutely not true, are wasting time and Internet bandwidth.

The choice of what system you buy is not chosen by some critic, it's chosen by your likes and dislikes, things that are totally YOUR opinion. People have been living their life based on their own opinions for hundreds of years.

Also a quick addition to what people opinions on the PlayStation 3 is inappropriate. Most of...

294w ago - Social Media Senior Specialist Chris Morell reports from the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas of big news for PlayStation Home.

EA officially announced its plans to launch the EA Sports Complex in the Home Beta this spring, the first Home space from EA. To quote:

For now, take a look at the EA Sports Complex trailer to whet your appetite, and stay tuned for more CES coverage today and throughout the week.





EA and Sony have been hard at work to create a space that both casual and hardcore gamers will enjoy, allowing Home users to play exclusive new EA Sports multiplayer games, meet EA Sports fans, check leaderboards and watch EA Sports trailers.

And better yet, EA is currently working with Sony with further PlayStation Home support, with announcements coming in the future.
 

Gamers Spent $1 Million on Virtual Goods in PlayStation Home

294w ago - According to Gamezine (linked above), gamers have already spent $1 million through purchasing the virtual goods available in Sony's PlayStation Home.

To quote: That's right, Sony's service hasn't been out for long, but it's already made Sony $1 million from the priced goods available.

T-Shirts, furniture and plants have all been enough to cause PlayStation 3 gamers to open their wallets. Intriguing that the "nickle and diming" tactic has already worked.

According to Kaz Hirai at Sony's CES conference, 3.4 million people have downloaded the PlayStation Home Open Beta. Plenty of people to spend some pennies indeed.

What have you done folks? Spending money in Home!? It's meant to be free! Stop encouraging them! I don't think this was what was meant when Bethesda said it could be the industry's defining moment. :P

294w ago - Programming from Viacom's MTV Networks is set to come to PlayStation Network's video service, Sony Computer Entertainment America announced at CES on Thursday.

The partnership between the two companies involves MTVN brands MTV, VH1, Nickelodeon, Comedy Central, Spike, Logo, CMT, The N, TV Land and Atom. TV shows that will be available for purchase via PSN include South Park, SpongeBob SquarePants and Love Bus with Bret Michaels, and eventually new shows due to premier in spring.

In November 2006, Microsoft announced a similar deal to bring programming from MTV Networks to Xbox Live. For companies like Microsoft and Sony, video delivery has become more than just a peripheral feature as digital distriubtion technologies improve and consumers lap up the content at a rapid pace.

Sony's video delivery service hosts around 1,200 movies and over 3,000 TV episodes, which can be viewed via PS3. Standard definition content can be transferred for viewing on PSP.
 

Proof Paedophiles Are Using Home on the PlayStation 3 Console

50°
294w ago - During a recent opinion piece, one of our writers recalled an anecdote of a disturbing experience that happened on Sony's PlayStation Home recently. The snippet in question reads as follows:

"While doing some research on 'who actually buys HOME clothing' we happened across a fellow in a cowboy hat (who we'll call 'Jed'). After telling Jed who we were and why we were here doing research, we had an interesting discussion about why he bought the cowboy hat, and virtual belongings in general.

Jed told us that he'd done up his apartment with furniture and he invited us over to see it all. Being that it was related to the conversation and the Home research we agreed.

The distant tingle of an alarm bell sounded when I materialized in Jed's apartment. Everything was super colour-coordinated, ultra chic, and the furniture had been surgically arranged in the room (possibly with a virtual laser level). "Nice feng shui" I mumbled. "I know!" he typed back enthusiastically.

It was at this point that I applied this virtual scene to its real life equivalent: I'm currently standing in a trendy house with a cowboy (who, just now, has decided to halve my personal space) and we're talking about the sensible placement of his furniture.

Houston, we may need to abort...
