The 360 is a better system than the PS3 anyway.


I'm not gonna say it, but you really should know what this makes you. :wink:


Whatever. Its called an opinion, so get over it and stop calling everyone who has an opinion a freaking fanboy.


Are you kidding me? Opinions are what MAKE someone a fanboy!

I.e., when you favor one system over another two, you are a fanboy to that system/company.

You, in particular, are a Microsoft Fanboy.

TheMuffin wrote:Well I wouldn't go that far. After all it has a lot fewer cases of system failure than the 360 with it's Red Lights of Doom which is in the ball park of 20% of systems if not more. That's the whole reason behind the 3 year warranty they just enacted. I think with enough time the PS3 will put out some stellar titles. Just nothing soon. I saw the new trailer for Killzone 2 today and it looked pretty decent. Not as a good as the original video of course but still good.


Yes we all know that, but at least M$ is doing something to fix the problem, which in the future will lead to better quality hardware.

As for why the 360 is better than the PS3...well thats simple...better performance, better online, better games.

With HUGE titles like MGS4 rumoured to go multiplatform, as well as big names from big game developers saying that their future products will HAVE to go multiplatform just to make their money back, the PS3 is dieing on its ass as each day passes. Why buy a PS3 when you can buy the 360 that does everything the PS3 can, but better. (and no this isnt an opinion, its a fact based on performance tests and direct comparison gameplay videos, as well as official technical specifications. So before you go throwing your fanboy rant around shadowman, i suggest you bite your tongue!)

Killzone 2 looked awesome, but it wont make the PS3 a success..and it'll more than likely go multi as well.

I wanted the PS3 to be great, i wanted to buy one for the longest time but since E3-05 its just been a downhill spiral what with the stupid price, downspeccing of PAL systems and lack of good games and crappy online play its been one disappointment after another.

In which case your opinions are full of ****. Thats not how the fanboy thing works, so STFU because you are wrong and uninformed.

Everyone prefers some system over another(be it old or new), so by your logic everyone has to be a fanboy, which makes you one too.

Yeah, feel that? Aint so nice is it? But by your logic you are a fanboy so stop with the fanboy bullshit already or join the club.

HE STARTED IT! :sad: :sad: :-P

No seriously im a little fed up with him calling me a fanboy everytime i state a fact that makes a system better than another.

Im even more fed up with the fact that he goes out of his way to call me a fanboy even when i express an opinion or how i like one system over another. We all prefer something over something else, its called "personal preferance" and "freedom of choice". That apparently makes everyone a fanboy in his eyes though.

Yes, personal preference is what makes someone a fanboy.

I think in Shadowmans case, fanboy isn't really a derogative term. I'll proudly admit I'm a fanboy of Microsoft. I love their games and from my standpoint I have no reason to purchase the other systems. However I will always respect what the other companies have done in creating their consoles.

Me too.

As opposed to Sonray, who simply says "Wii and PS3 are ****. 360 is better." Though, to be fair, he includes examples of why 360 is better, rather than other people's fanboyistic blathering of "lol ur console is shitz!11!1!one!"

Wait....you people consider it a good thing to be called a fanboy and something to be proud of?


This is......new.....this is like learnign to breathe under wter infact....ive never met people who are PROUD to be a fanboy, ive always considered it derogatory hence why i get so hostile when im called one.

And no i dont do the whole "lolz ur console suckz mine is betteeerrr" thing and i base why i think something is better based on facts, statistics, sales figures, hardware performace and quality of software.

I cant stand the mindless noob fanboy bullshit. If you are gonna argue about something then at least know what you are talking about first, hence why i have done my homework. :P

So anyway...its good to be a fanboy?

Maybe ive been looking at this the wrong way....damn Gamespot and their community of "lolz ur console sux" fanboy community! (thats where i used to post alot till i got fed up with the nazi moderators, lack of free speech and idiot fanboys.)

Think of Fanboys like Force Users.

There's the Good Fanboys, the Light Side, the Jedi, who are smart and use actual facts and statistics to support their console.

Then there's the Dark Side, the Sith, who use derogatory terms, flames, and blunt force insults to attempt to get a meaningless point across.

As much as i hate Star Wars, that makes sense. Well then, i guess i can be a proper fanboy around here then it seems without fear of moronic "siths" crawling out of the woodwork to flame me.

Well its not really a fear, just an annoyance.

Note one of my favorite online comics:

http://www.fanboys-online.com/index.php?cid=1

:P

EDIT: And you could call me Nintendo Class because...

A) Pokemon ruled my childhood (and still has a decent empire in my life)
B)Ocarina of Time was my first excellent Console Adventure Game
C)I used to be interested in the PSP fore my new handheld, but went with the DS Lite for more varience in titles, including... Pokemon...
D)I'm not into many console games anymore. When I need a long RPG-ish, brain-warping storyline to stimulate my brain, I grab something called a 'book.' So the Wii if anything, because it's cheap (literally), gimmicky, isn't too ingaging, and has every nastalgia-inspiring game Icould have hoped for...

EDIT: However, I do still have a PS2, and GoW and PoP kick ass.

What a way to announce a price cut. The euro announcement was last night, while we didn't get a price drop we now get the ps3 with resistance, motorstorm and a second pad for the same price.

And SCEE confirmed that the 60gb PS3 will no longer be available in America when the current stock is depleted, so if you want a $500 PS3 wait for an actual price drop or buy it NOW, enjoy the non price cut while it lasts.

Sony is hilarious. It isn't a price cut at all. They are putting the current stock on clearance. :lol:

Indeed, I'm suprised that you're still going to be able to play GoW on XP when it comes out.
