@GoldenElementXL: agreed about Tormentos. I have offered him help mentally, numerous times and he laughs it off like I am joking. Defending something that you have no association with isn't healthy.

Ahhhh this takes me back. What a delicious thread.

Thank you TC... and special mention to @freedomfreak for reminding me about that song, what a classic.

In all fairness though, I think the PS3's hate back then was a bit ott. It was very much a joke of a console around here, yet even at $599 it had good value, and it did sell pretty well.

Totally agree. And look where we are today. Blu Ray killed HD DVD and the PS3 had a lot to do with it. I bet until Blu Ray players dropped to sub $200, a good percentage of players were actually PS3's.

The funny thing is that even though the PS3 was largely a laughing stock for the first couple years after RIDDDDDDDDDGGGGGGE RACER... the Sony fanbase was just a rabid as they are today.

this is what happens when you always make the best console and the best games. I would take nothing less than the PS1, PS2, PS3 or the PS4. By gamers for the gamers. Thank you Sony.

And on my sign the prototype that started it all. The PlayStation add-on for the Snes before Nintendo stabbed Sony in the back.

Thread title "lets take a trip back to 2006"

Unsurprising to see tormentos in this thread as he has been stuck in 2006 for the last 8 years......still going on about AA batteries ? hahahahahahahahaha

So wait a moron comes and claim the PS3 was anti consumer,and i can point out what anti consumer really mean.?

I guess you still hurting from my arguments so tell me,how does anything you say change the fact that you need to buy a separate charge with rechargeable batteries for your 360 while you didn't need it for PS3.?

Oh wait the xbox one again does the same sh**....hahaha

So you are use to get rip off by MS is that it.? hahahaaa

hahaha jesus dude.

do you have any idea how ridiculous you look?

you just proved my point exactly you are stuck in 2006 caring about AA batteries then....caring about them now....

you've been saying this shit for the last 8 years....nobody cares except yourself.

@GotNugz said:

@darkangel115: the ps3 launched with an equivalent $400 graphics card, and akward but powerful cell. Also the cheapest blu Ray players at the time were $500 alone. The blu Ray player also benefited games as well because they weren't multi disk.

Oh and the part where every bragged about having a Bluray player.......................but no one owned a HD TV. Classic times.

I have been an HDTV owner since 2003 2004,by 2006 i already have 2 and by 2007 3,in fact my first flat screen was a Vizio 42 inch 1080p and i pay like $1400 for it on a black fryday sale.

Onn i owned already a samsung one and a panasonic projection which was like 50 inch all HDTV..

Wanting an HD games and not HD movies was completely stupid,in fact when the 360 came out so few were the HDTV out that the xbox 360 didn't even have an HDMI port just component cables..

So is not like what you say didn't apply to the xbox 360.

Fact is on 2006 the PS3 was a incredible better value than the xbox one is today by miles,the PS3 had expensive tech,the xbox one has weak ass tech and blu-ray is not expensive any more.

@darkangel115 said:

well the 400 dollar graphics card kinda failed it didn't it? I mean the games played better on the 360 and looked better. most had higher resolutions. Sure some great looking games came out eventually mostly from ND but it sure took a long time. In the end, anyone can look back now and know that the 360 ran the MP games better.

The exclusives on each system were about equal. one didn't massively outperform the other. and for 200 dollars more, don't you agree it should?

Also the load times were terrible and games needed a install of about 5GB per game to not deal with it due to the lower speed of blu ray. which is terrible for a 20GB hard drive.

Basically you could install 4 games on it max at launch or deal with terrible performance.

compared to the pop in a disc and play nature of the 360.

And yes the BD was a good seller if you wanted one, but not everybody wanted a BD player. And that sure is taking the focus off gaming right? the BD drive included is no better then the kinect included on the xbox.

Not to mention the cost of BD movies back then were like 40+ dollars compared to the 10 dollar DVD versions.

Sure it helped on multi disc games, but how many were there? maybe less then 5? I mean I remember playing a 4 disc game on my PS1 (fear effect) lol. The point was the similarities between the PS3 launch and the X1 launch and how the PS3 wound up succeeding. Also points to a reminder that sony isn't some NPO that loves gamers. They are a company trying to turn a profit. No different from MS

You are talking about multiplatforms right.? Because exclusives wise sony handed MS his ass and then some,Halo wasn't HD until Halo 4..all Halo sud 720p,PDZ sub 720p since launch,games like Alan wake have some very mess up resolution like 960x544p in fact Alan Wake is a few lines of resolution higher than standard definition..

800x480p or 852x480p 16:9 unscale.

Alan Wake 960x544...

150 lines less over all and the game would have been 480p...lol

On a console were MS promise that all games would be minimum 1280x720p with 4XAA.

ATI revealed this afternoon that every single Xbox 360 game will be required to run at a minimum of 720p resolution with 4x Anti-Aliasing.

Speaking at a press conference in London, ATI technology specialist Rene Froeleke told journalists that Microsoft had specified that games must run at the 1280x720 resolution at 4xAA with no slowdown. Every single game will be supported at this graphical specification, which we think is great news for gamers playing on big-screen TVs.

http://www.bit-tech.net/news/hardware/2005/05/25/ati_xbox_360_london/1

Once again MS also failed and fell short on their promise..

Uncharted release on 2007,not even 1 full year after the PS3 and dethroned Gear of war as the best looking console game,so yeah it didn't took endless years..

In fact no game on xbox 360 is close to how great Warhawk ran,hell Resistance since launch 20 vs 20 on dedicated servers,yeah you know what you kiss MS ass now for yeah Resistance ran them on 2006,while Gears of war was a lagfest on 2006 over its lag galore and host advantage issues,Resistance was doing 20 vs 20 lag free..lol

Warhawk on 2007 32 players huge maps,tanks,plane jeeps and a big ass scale which make Titanfall stages look small,and could be play on 256k connections that good the code was,what about Resistance 2 1 year latter.? 60 players online that is BF4 like,8 players co-op unheard of in the console market and still unmatch by any 3 game..

Most people who talk sh** about PSN and he PS3 are those who claim to own one but never did,or plain own fanboys,fact is PSN had more games on servers than live did,and they ran smoother than P2P on xbox live while been FREE..

Those 3 bold parts there prove that you probably never owned a damn PS3 and i tell you why now..

The PS3 exclusives did out perform xbox 360 exclusives and in many cases the awards for graphics are there to prove so,the xbox 360 basically didn't win best graphics after Gear or War 1..

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eTvYPiEi4eU

Just a small reminder..

Oh and the PS3 was $200 more but had Blu-ray which was $1,000 stand alone on 2006,on xbox 360 the close thing HD-DVD was $200 alone.

Had Wifi which on xbox 360 again was $99 dollars.

Had HDMI port for maximum digital quality signal possible,the xbox 360 didn't have that and require you to get a new model some years latter if you wanted HDMI.

Media card reader,build in rechargeable batteries free online play which on xbox 360 was $50.

Those extra $200 on PS3 got you a truck load of crap the xbox 360 completely lacked,as well as giving a next gen platform,blu-ray alone more than justify it,i mean Resistance was 7.1 uncompresed loss less sound,on 2006 not even PC were there on 2006 unless you had some mighty ass PC with blu-ray and a great GPU and CPU and we are talking about more than $2k for it..

Second bold par of the last 3.

Not all games installed,even less 5GB each one that is a joke,few games on launch actually had installation,and weren't 5GB each,also since you talking about the $600 PS3 as made clear by your own post that model came with a 60GB HDD,not a 20GB one that was the $500 model.

And the last bold part is totally moronic and just show your are basing your arguments on your stupid calculations,based on so call games requiring 5GB to install,first of all even if all games require 5GB to install you would still not be able to install 4,as the PS4 doesn't actually come with 20GB of storage on the 20 GB model,it always has less like 17GB or something like that.

Second i had more than 4 games installed on my launch units..

And if a game require install you had to MANDATORY install it to be able to play it,so you could now have play a game that require installation on launch without installing it to claim it would get you performance issues,is the reason they are call MANDATORY install buffoon...

Resistance only need it 220MB Far far from your 5Gb claim.

Rainbow six vega 3GB.

Genji 2.4Gb optional since it was for speeding loading times.

Fear 2.5Gb

Mobil suit gundam 4.2 optional to speed loading.

The rest that i know didn't require install at all and the majority of PS3 games don't install.

Yes to the 360 one disc nature,which by 2006 had you swapping disc like 1997,oh wait it MS implemented install as a so call feature only to require installs in some of its games when they sell a HDD less console for years..

No every wanted HD graphics either didn't the Wii show you that.? not every wanted to pay for online either as well,i guess those arguments only apply to sony..

Comparing Blu-ray vs Kinect is a joke,blu-ray give you several advantages Kinect is just a gimmick,one which MS will drop soon unlike blu-ray which MS ended up adopting for their last console.

I never payed $40 for a blu-ray movie,$25 the most and i haven't see a $40 movie for that matter either since launch,and the DVD version didn't give you 1080p visuals,hay apply that to the xbox 360 so call HD graphics,if all people would have think like you the xbox 360 would have bomb why get a new machine when 480p was fine...

Less than 5 game games that where in multiple disc.? hahahahaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_console_games_spanning_multiple_discs#Xbox_360

The xbox 360 has the biggest line of games spamming across multiple disc,lets party like is 1997...lol

The PS3 was a powerful,full of new tech console,the xbox one is a weak sauce over priced consoles..

You can troll all you want, but the fact is the 8800GTX is older than the ps3 even for a few days (in Japan, because in Europe the 8800GTX was released several months before the ps3 ).

A quad core CPU and a 8800GTX was a better investment than the PS3 in the long run FACT.

And in 2013 the 8800GTX play games with better graphics and performance than ps3. And I hope you are joking about the thing with the "2013 best platform"....

By 1 week troll...hahahaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa

A fake quad core CPU on 2006 was $1,000+ alone and wasn't true quad cores those arrived on 2007..lol

So $1600 for CPU and GPU alone..hahahaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa

Oh did i use the fact that PSN games could be share with up to 5 of your friends.? can you share your PC games with me.? Hahaha bububut value and online was free on PS3 as well..lol

Is forgotten already..haha

And no unless you have the high rated exclusive on PC to prove so,do you have something higher rated than TLOU on PC last year.? Share it... Oh wait but you also still waiting for GTA5..lol

@tormentos "see this is what i hate about fanboys you claim to own something but you don't really know your console."

Is this really your latest defense for not owning a PS4?

I agree that a person should be ashamed if they don't know how or what they can do with their console/PC.

You gave an example in another thread and I do get your point. BUT. That is in no way worse than the amount of praise and defense you show towards a console that you do not own. You are in every anti Microsoft thread bashing the Xbox One. You are in every Sony circle jerk thread praising the PS4. And you are in every thread critical of the PS4 defending it with your life. Being a fan of something is one thing. I don't really know what to call what it is you're doing, but It's not normal.

There is a difference between not knowing and inventing sh** as well,instead of trying to single me out you closet lemming why don't you quote him and argue all the wrong crap he spewed on this thread..lol

Fact is i don't need and xbox one or PS4 to talk about the,even less if the argument is about graphics which you can see with your own eyes all over the internet.

Once again the whole you don't own this or that console is a crappy excuse hell Sts106Mats never owned a PS3,now lease ask him in how many anti PS3 threads he has been rooting for the xbox 360 and downplaying the PS3..lol

Once again stop been so obvious,and stop single out PS fans which you admit your self to single out more,because some how you think they are worse,look at your self you are on an anti PS3 thread bashing PS3 fans instead of questioning TC made up crap..

like all games require 5Gb installs,or the fact that he use the $600 model as base,but use the 20GB model as example which is from the cheaper model,oh wait how about only 5 games on xbox 360 use multiple disc..lol

When you single out 1 faction you are just as fanboy as well..

This is the reason why your crappy x box one doesn't have rechargeable batteries because the company you defend bleed you dry..

Hell that play and charge kit is $5 more expensive than the xbox 360 one on 2005..You are a sad lemming who will justify any crap and rip off MS does to you..lol

Just a few points

First off I'm not a closet Lemming.

Second I posted in support of the PS3 in this thread so your point I put in bold is crap. I post both positive and critical about the Xbox One, Wii U, Vita and 3DS as well. That's the beauty of not attaching myself to a faction. And it just so happens that I own them all.

Third lets be real. There are "Cows" and then there is you. I am not calling out Cows when I quote you. I am just calling you out because you are out of your mind. Yes I have said that Cows rub me the wrong way. But I have also stated multiple times that I have been a huge Sony fan and supporter since the PS1. My game library and console collection supports that.

The battery thing is kinda silly on Microsoft's part. Before the Xbox One launched I already had 2 charge and play kits because I hate having to worry about keeping batteries in the house. Hell I had people over this past weekend and had to take batteries out of my Direct TV remotes so 4 people could play Mario 3D World and Nintendo Land. I wouldn't call the use of batteries in 2014 a deal breaker, but how about we get with the times

Yes because you were using Wii controllers on a Wii U game,the wii u tablet comes with rechargeable battery,the wii controllers don't..

Come on it was old by 2006 by 2014 is dead,specially if the company is question is selling you their own branded battery pack with charger for $25 dollars,you can get a charger on wallmart with 4 batteries for less.

It is clear it was done to sell you the charger...

And no place in 2014,on 2005 ok it was passable before that controllers were wired,but on 2014 is just not..

Ridiculous.?

You know what ridiculous is using double A batteries in 2014 on a damn console,basically all portables,cell phones,tablets and all those kind of electronics use rechargeable batteries man,grow up and stop defending MS rip off.

http://www.gamestop.com/xbox-one/accessories/xbox-one-play-charge-kit/111432

This is the reason why your crappy x box one doesn't have rechargeable batteries because the company you defend bleed you dry..

Hell that play and charge kit is $5 more expensive than the xbox 360 one on 2005..You are a sad lemming who will justify any crap and rip off MS does to you..lol

$25 dollar.... lol

The battery thing is kinda silly on Microsoft's part. Before the Xbox One launched I already had 2 charge and play kits because I hate having to worry about keeping batteries in the house. Hell I had people over this past weekend and had to take batteries out of my Direct TV remotes so 4 people could play Mario 3D World and Nintendo Land. I wouldn't call the use of batteries in 2014 a deal breaker, but how about we get with the times

Yes because you were using Wii controllers on a Wii U game,the wii u tablet comes with rechargeable battery,the wii controllers don't..

Come on it was old by 2006 by 2014 is dead,specially if the company is question is selling you their own branded battery pack with charger for $25 dollars,you can get a charger on wallmart with 4 batteries for less.

It is clear it was done to sell you the charger...

And no place in 2014,on 2005 ok it was passable before that controllers were wired,but on 2014 is just not..

I actually like the AA batteries. I get pissed off with having to charge my phone all the time, sometimes even forgetting to switch it on at the plug. I always have a bunch of AA batteries in the house.

I have also seen more gamers complain about the shit battery life on the PS4 controller than i have complain about AA batteries.

I haven't bought a battery charger or play and charge kit for my 360 or XB1.

Is this a real thread?

It looks like a pity party for bitter lemmings looking for something to feel up beat about and nothing more. The usual suspects have come out to take part and not surprisingly Stevo is here to throw his 2 cent in as well taking about "rabid fanboys" lol you guys are pathetic.

I don't know why i even bother with you when you can spout this much fanboy bullshit and act like it's anything other than fanboy bullshit.

How about you try to counter-point my arguments rather than calling me names? We'll start with that and see who is the fanboy here. Just because what I say is uncomfortable doesn't make it fanboyism.

It's not uncomfortable at all, it's just so utterly sad that a grown man can think and act the way you do.

So, you got nothing. Okay, good to know.

I'm not a raging fanman like you which is more than enough for me.

Im still using the same set of 6 recharable batteries I bought for £5 from poundland when I got my 360.

I'm always impressed with that developers were able to achieve on a PS3. GTA 5 for example. 2006 however, I was over frustrated with all the weird DRM tactics that they were doing on the PC around that time. I remember StarForce totally screwed me for a while, it prevented me from writing anything to CD/DVD and took me forever to realize that it was the problem. I had some terrible experiences on PC during that era, soured me for a while. I just remember how bad it sucked that GT5 kept getting delayed but overall I enjoyed my PS3 just fine. I don't remember all the talk of PS3 never going to have any games, guess that's when I was normal gamer back then and didn't read stuff that nerds talked about, I can see why now that I started reading them. You guys are just *** up in the head.

XBone isn't gonna make a comeback OP. It doesn't have the worldwide appeal or first party studios Sony has to stage a comeback. You have to remember that the PS3 was outselling the 360 from day one worldwide despite being $200 more, something that the XBone isn't close to doing. XBone is getting owned worldwide by the PS4 with no signs of relief.

Let it go lems, the XBone is not the PS3, going back 8 years to damage control the Xflop One is the height of desperation guys.

Damn dude are you still going on about AA batteries? No one cares, except you, and other PS fanboys. Everybody has AA batteries lying around, and most people have rechargeable ones. Tons of things around the house use them. It's not like MS went with 9V batteries or something.

I'll take being able to swap out fresh batteries in 10 seconds over sitting with my wireless DS4 plugged in for an hour to recharge it because the crappy internal rechargeable battery only lasts 5-6 hours any day.

Back on topic...The PS3 fell on it's face at launch, and didn't really recover until 2009 with a price drop, and the slim version. The only people who can't see this is blind fanboys.

The XBone is doing the same, but can easily recover with a price drop, and game support. It's far too early in the generation to claim any kind of victory for the PS4. Sure it's the more powerful console, but the PS3 was considerably more powerful than the Wii. Yet the Wii kicked it's ass by having games that appealed to the broader mass of people.

Funny times, how to kill a brand indeed. I sadly missed out on the System Wars fun, joining at the ass-end of 2007 when Sony and the PS3 were slowly becoming less and less fucking atrocious. Who is the bigger example of rancid toilet crust- Sony of 2006 or Microsoft of 2013? An intriguing question, one I can't answer.

WTF...lol

Blind fanboy at its best. so because people some how have batteries is Ok to charge $25 dollars for crappy charge and play kit and not do what the others are doing put a freaking rechargeable battery that can be recharge by your own damn console a 4 duracell are like $10 dollars,man MS could have make one cheap for $3 and pack it in with a cable,instead they still went cheap battery but charge you $25 for it,is 2014 stop been an apologist for MS crap.

And the battery last more than 6 hours and what really hurting it is the light,in fact some people have disable the light by opening the controller and get 28 hours of battery life on a single charge...

The PS3 got a first price drop in 2007,and in places like Japan and mainland EU the PS3 outsold the xbox 360 even with a higher price,so is not quite the same for the xbox one to recover..

Now lets see if the Xbone can match the PS3's gen run at the end of this gen with equal total sales, 3 GOTY's, and an AAAAE game.

I was in SW in the PS2/Xbox/GC generation. I remember the hooplah surrounding the 360 launch. I remember the hooplah surrounding the Wii and PS3 launch. I'm not going back to 2006. Been there, done that.

There were 1000x more posters and 1000x more hatred and a 1000x more topics. You would post in one thread and 100x threads would pop up...and one machine was hated most of all back then, the $500 and $600 PS4 gaming consoles. I remember getting my Xbox 360 gamerscore up at that time and just coming to SW to see the next bad news for Sony and the PS3. It was a joke machine back in 2006...as far as the majority of System Wars was concerned.

C'mon, you even know it's been over 7 years, and we're talking way back in the last gen. Just let it go.

Hell all of the thread before the announcement of Gears of war don't even exist and are not even archived anymore, so we really can't go back to far. Not to mention dozens of thread even AFTER THAT went missing after the site change.

Unless someone wants to go to archive.org and put in their paid forum member ship login.

If they have batteries why do they need a $25 charge and play kit? Why is it that you assume that people who like the convenience of swapping out batteries in 10 seconds are somehow apologizing for MS? Like somehow in 2014 AA batteries are obsolete or something.

5-7 hours is about the norm, or are you saying mine, and my friend's DS4s are all defective? Actually why am I even arguing about this with you. Just do a Google search and there are tons of complaints about the short battery life on the DS4.

Yeah the first price drop was in 2007, but sales didn't really take off for the PS3 until after the 2009 price drop. The one spurred by Activision threatening to stop making games for the PS3 if the price wasn't dropped. Why did they threaten this? Because no one was buying the PS3, and Activision wasn't selling games on the console.

Why is it not quite the same for the XBone to recover? Do you really think that the PS4 is just outselling the XBone because of it's massive library of launch games...lol? We are 6 months into these two consoles lives. Trust me it wouldn't take much for the sales to tip the other way.

Looking back, it's impressive that Sony was able to save the PS3. There is no doubt that they screwed up with the architecture. I don't think the Cell itself was a bad idea, but the fact that they had to cut corners at the end of development of the PS3 was. The gimped expensive GPU, and the split RAM pools. Looking at the latest titles for the PS3 shows that devs and the ICE team at Sony really did magic with the PS3.

@darkangel115: the ps3 launched with an equivalent $400 graphics card, and akward but powerful cell. Also the cheapest blu Ray players at the time were $500 alone. The blu Ray player also benefited games as well because they weren't multi disk.

Actually, if I'm not mistaken, in 06 (when the ps3 came out) the cheapest stand alone blu-ray player was near 1000 bucks.

TC's right though. The One is eerily similar to the PS3, except it's less shit at the time.

Word, if the PS3 actually had games to play it would pretty much be the xbone.

Funny how PS3 won the generation with the best games though.

1. While most are "okay" with the AA battery route that MS went with the X1, it is still ridiculous. The X1 is the ONLY next gen console that doesn't come with rechargeable batteries out of the box. It was more "passable" in 05/06 because the Wiimotes also didn't come with rechargeable batteries either, but the Wii-U tablet does, and you can't put the short life of the DS4 off on the rechargeable batteries because the Wii-U Pro Controller also comes with rechargeable batteries, and probably have 2x the life of X1 controllers powered by stand alone AA batteries.

2. I do agree with your point with the ps3 taking off in 09 "to an extent". While I believe that in 09 is when people and critics started noticing the ps3 uprising, I believe that the ps3 actually started it's uprising in 08. The 360 had only 1 blockbuster game that year (Gears 2, in which many believe to be the worst in the series), while the ps3 not only got it very 1st system seller that year (MGS4), but also received it's very 1st superior multiplat (Burnout: Paradise) along with LBP, and Resistance 2.

3. The Wii kicked EVERYONE tail, not just the ps3. The Wii was way cheaper than both HD twins, and offered a gimmick that was very intriguing to the consumer.
