People write them and then they hit post. 

Oh wait, that's the answer to 'how'. Sorry man, don't know the why.

Not me. In fact, I'm more upbeat about the PS4 than with the PS3 before it released.

I can talk about Sony's games too. Why did they release Killzone and Infamous for PS4. Don't they know those Ips are considered mediocre by the gaming consensus. They should have focused on getting the next metal gear exclusive or something.

Source? The PS3 hasn't even reached that number yet and it took the PS2 around 6 years. The Wii just surpassed it and it's been around about 6 years.

Its because there were so many doom and gloom articles. That cows were crying to the mods so much about this. Mods then instituted a rule on system wars that you couldn't post unless you were level 10. I was here when that happened. It was so lame how cows couldn't man up that time.

Thats much better, lets talk about all the different varieties of exclusive games on playstation :) infamous is fresh and have a chance of redeeming itself, even though i thought the sequel is much better than the first, but killzone is just another fps thats always gonna be under the shadow of cod and halo

Infamous fresh? Were you taken in by that crappy announcement. The one with the infamous developer was reminiscing about his times during a protest. LOL

hmmmm.... i would have thought the eating out of dumpsters part would have given away the sarcastic  nature of that post.

 

that was NOT in fact a statement for which i put in research i'm very sorry i mislead you with my tricksiness.

The TC was talking about articles not threads. There are a lot of Sony doom articles because they are in serious financial trouble.

It's not to make a profit, it's for cash flow as their credit rating makes it unreasonable for them to borrow cash.

You can look at their profits over the last 10 years too if you wish. You'd find nothing different.

Nobody asked for a new Infamous or Killzone or really cares. Killzone is a franchise where the first game sucked, the second got praise for graphics, and the third just sat there unnoticed. Infamous is not a heavy hitting franchise either.

Not really. Sony's actually currently undervalued. 

Stock was near 150-200 in 2001. 

It was called the Internet Bubble + Sony's glory days. 

Now its 14 dollars and some change.

$15.56 as of right now. 39% increase in the last 3 months. Not to mention http://seekingalpha.com/currents/post/785071

Its rated Junk status by investors everywhere.

As far as I know, only by Fitch, and it was only their bond credit rating; has nothing to do with what investors think of the stock. 

Sony has resorted to selling real estate to make a profit. 

Its to generate cash flow. Selling real estate doesn't directly contribute to your revenue on the books.   

They are losing money left and right.

Q3 2011 - $2B Loss , Q3 2012 - $198M Loss. They are also expected to make a profit this year. 

They sold lots of their lcd factories and are struggling to survive.

Off load assets to generate cash flow and free up new manufacturing agreements.

Sony is not struggling to survive. They are struggling to keep up with what people expect from them.

If you look at the bottom of this web site, you will see cbs owns these forums, and Microsoft owns cbs Main stream gaming media in America are Microsoft shill sell outs Thats one thing that is obvious, and that you need to know So there's your answer why Microsoft is truly one of the most corrupt and shady corps out there, and they have their filthy tenticles reaching into more places then you would think We as real gamers must slice those Microsoft tentacles in half We as gamers have an obligation to cut off Microsoft's strangle hold on American gaming media If you are a real gamer, then you have to support Sony - who supports core gamers like you and I, Other wise gaming will turn to sh!t with Microsoft running it all into the ground! Dont allow yourself to be brain washed by all these Sony doom and gloom articles Dont listen to "reviewers" who thrash PS3 exclusives in scores. They are being paid off to do so SO DISREGARD their phoney "opinions" Dont listen to the vocal minority of forum lemTROLLS or geeks who complain about playstation exclusives etc Always use your own mind, think for yourself, play the games, and come to your own conclusions If you are a real core gamer, keep in mind that Sony is the only one who supports the core gamer

Edit, Sony has been more agressive against Microsoft I like that But I really want to see Sony attack Microsoft head on and truly annihilate Microsoft with their own tactics Microsoft needs a taste of their own "medicine" As a real gamer, I will do my part though, and I will never ever support Microsoft or buy a product from Microsoft ever again

OldSnakePS3
This times a million:) You know Microsoft and their xbots are mad worried lol! You can just tell by the epic amounts of damage controlling that has been going on since the PS4 was revealed! The PS4 is going to be huge! You can just feel the vibe in the air While Microsoft is doing everything wrong (little to no exclusives, extortion online fees, kinect focus, weak hardware etc) Sony is doing everything right Sony made sure that the PS4 was built by game makers for gamers, and that is an awesome thing:) The PS4 is the gamers consoles! It will be the most powerful and wholey efficient console of next gen by significant margins. It will also be very easy to develope for, so that will be a great thing, which ensures third party support from the beginning Not to forget, the PS4 has such a sexy controller, and it will have ground breaking social features that are SPECIFIC TO GAMING (no gimicks) The PS4 is ging to simply be awesome! I really cant wait for it! Like i said, you can just feel the vibe in that air, that the PS4 is going to be something special, and will likely be the PS2 of our time! Also, Sony and their stellar fisrt parties have always provided the goods for core gamers, and by the looks of it, they will continue to do so in surplus for the PS4! But for some reason Sony would never really go after M$ So im really loving this new agressive Sony, who has love for the core gamer, but who is now going to go after M$! Its true that Sony aint playing around this time, and they fully intend to win next gen! Microsoft and the gaming media they own are sweating, panicking, and are damage controlling out of desperation....and I love it! Ive always wanted somebody to give M$ a taste of their own medicine! Sony with the core gamers behind them are going to smite the delusional corporate fatcats at M$ once and for all. Here is hoping, right But one thing is for sure, M$ doesn't get gaming! Sony does! M$ is run by a bunch of corporate tools in 3 piece suites whom are oblivious to reality and what the people want! Sony knows what we want and are delivering the goods to us! I encourage you guys to just look at the current vice president of M$, and read some of his interviews. The luls will ensue. Phil Spencer is delusional, and the thing is, he is not even the worst guy at M$ Pathetic! Microsoft will fail miserably trying to chase the Wii's pot of causual gold
