same thing as last time. Ps2 was not all that attractive when it came out but sony eventually and magically made a smooth transition from ps1 to ps2. I'm sure when they are done sucking the life out of ps2 they will hype people to buy a ps3. Unlike xbox and gamecube the ps2 is still alive so I guess thats why Sony didn't lose their head yet. Thats why Sony keeps saying they don't care.ff7isnumbaone
Even so the future does not look good for Sony.

[QUOTE="Natural_Mystic"]We all know Sony has been taking a lot of bad press from the PS3, but lets take a look back at the year that has lead us to the Nov. 17th release date.

First, we start with Sony itself. Yes, I was going to only make a timeline of the PS3 news, but how can you ignore this arrogance from late 2005?

Nov. 10th, 2005 - Sony is caught hiding a rootkit inside music CD's that place a virus on users computer. Sony's Tom Hesse defends the decision by stating that people don't know what it is, so they shouldn't care

Now that we know Sony cares about us, lets move on to the PS3...

Feb. 27th, 2006 - Sony misses it's Spring launch date Better than having less/more bugged units like 360
May 8th, 2006 - Sony holds it's E3 conference announcing the pricing of the PS3 at $600/$500
May 8th, 2006 - New PS3 controller will have six degrees of motion, but no rumble feature. Sony's Phil Harrison states that rumble was last gen and no longer needed. Ownage denied, i dont care about rumble or motion.

Sept 26th, 2006 - Square Enix will not exclusively support Sony's PS3 as much as they did with the PS2. FFXIII, FFversusXIII, FF Tactics for PSP, MMORPG for PS3 in the future, Kingdom Hearts 3. That doesnt sound bad.
Sept 29th, 2006 - Sony's President Ken Kutaragi states that his company does not care about the Xbox 360 and Wii competition. Hows does this count as ownage? HE doesnt care, big deal.
October 12th, 2006 - Sony Exec calls the 360 and Wii "too expensive"
October 19th, 2006 - The infamous spec sheet comparison and how Sony claims the Xbox 360 requires HD-DVD to play games  In order to have all the features the PS3 has, yes.

Nov 9th, 2006 - NBA Live 2007 is cancelled on the PS3
Nov 9th, 2006 - Oblivion is pushed back from launch title to Jan 2007  Oblivion to PS3 is a good news not bad :roll:

And to add to the list, the patent Sony just recently filed to make a wiiMote type device for their console.

Sony's WiiMote

Sony invented this 10 years ago but felt we weren't ready for it, but now they think the world is ready and decided to file the patent. At least that's what they'll say 2 years from now. Well that, and that Nintendo stole their idea, like rumble and analog sticks

yes it is i hope they can turn things around...............but with this rep sheet it doesnt seem likely.
#106 Posted by Oni (1398 posts) -
Wow ... all I can say is Wow!  I knew Sony was in the dog house, I just didn't realize how bad off they really were. I've been rooting for Sony to repeat their past success, but I can see now it's a different game.


#107 Posted by Arnalion (3316 posts) -
Haha nice thread! Good work, right on the spot.
#108 Posted by Dreams-Visions (26569 posts) -
ouch. that's a long list. I'm suprised there aren't some of the games that were canned because of lack of support from SONY listed. but damn, that's a lot of ownage in one Opening Post.
#109 Posted by Heith (1231 posts) -
Someone really needs to sticky this
#110 Posted by caseyrugby (86 posts) -
I would agree that sony has had a bad year. However its not the first time they have had a bad year and yet they still have been around for freaking ever. If you find ONE company that hasn't ever had a down or bad year I will heavily invest in them.
#111 Posted by idealbasher (201 posts) -
2007 is gona be the upside,

#112 Posted by ScalIywag (946 posts) -

Read the material and you will see

Sony's WiiMote

#113 Posted by kansasdude2009 (11802 posts) -
The Ownage is strong with this one!
But really, as much as I would like to say that all of this = Sony DOOM! I can't. I really dont like how they have treated us, but I still have this gut feeling that they are going to come back and CLAW their way to victory anyway possible. Like paying retailers to set the PS3 up in front, or something like that...I dont know, but I just know something is going to happen...
BUT WHAT!?!?!?

btw... AAA topic, way to eat your veggies!!
#114 Posted by kansasdude2009 (11802 posts) -
why aren't people wanting to keep this alive? Its classic non-oppinionated ownage, and quite a nice list. Everyone should see this!

It highly ignored for some reason.  Maybe it hurts to much or is to much to read,.....no clue.

To an extent, that is true but here's where things are really different this time around: PS2 launched with little (Dreamcast, R.I.P :( ) to no competition. Now MS is ahead of them with millions of xbox 360 consoles sold and a HUGE 3rd party support. The PS2 was reasonably priced...And please, don't give me "teh inflation" bull crap :roll: It certainly wasn't 600 bucks :| MS is beginning to make a profit....Sony is starting to lose...A LOT. Though, I disagree about PS3 failing, I do believe that MS is giving them the hardest times of their life in the VG industry and it definitely is losing market share. Xbox 360 is already a proven console, PS3 is still trying to prove its worth.

ownage thread of the year

if anyone presides a cow ever thinks of getting a PS3 i suggest reading this thread

#129 Posted by MadCat09 (739 posts) -
Ownage approved.
#130 Posted by FatalDomain (1783 posts) -
I must agree this is one of the best threads created. Why?, because it tells the truth about Sony and its fumbles. No fanboy can twist these facts with a optimistic POV because the force is strong with the TC for providing links for each and every event with Sony..

Game On....

Arghhh....i can't get a ps3..
#135 Posted by shawn30 (4361 posts) -

This is the ultimate ownage ever!!! There are simply to many links to so many credible, nonbiased websites and coupled with Sony's incredible arrogance, lies, and promises it just makes the PS3 debut a complete flop. It will take the best year of Sony's gaming department ever to come back from this. And at this point I just don't think they can do it. The PS3 at the end of 2007 will be in 3rd place and still losing money.

I guess you can't argue with "quotes". He said "XXXXXXX" but he meant: "YYYYYYY" That just doesn't fly.

You missed out the parts where people got attacked and robbed waiting for PS3s and the cops shot a guy suspected of stealing one.
