Between the price and the lack of rumble, I see no reason to own one right now. Once they lower the price and bring out the rumble controller they should have had from day one, then it might be time to consider one. Not until then.

The price sucks , but I don't see why a Sony fan would be so angry deep down when you consider the best altenative is a $400 console + at least a couple of more hundred to play games online with the 360. It will cost you the same for the 360 (or more) , but you get less.

Sounds like a comment from someone who doesn't actually own a 360. Those of us who do have this to say about that.... :lol:

I don't hate the PS3, I dislike its high end price and I find its current game library lack luster but I by no means hate this new technology.  I think if you hate on a piece of hardware you have problems, hate the way Sony do business by all means but why hate on poor defenceless inanimate objects.

People enjoy watching 'the greats' fall, I suppose this is to help with their own insecurities. Celebrities, successful companies, and entertainment franchises all fall under this category.

Why do people like you hate the PS3?
Because of the high price? Man, I cannot afford a Ferrari, but why should I hate them?
And if the PS3 sucks, why do people not just ignore it?

It's because you either already made another purchase (360 or Wii) and therefore don't want to pay for another system, so you just tell yourself you hate it so you don't care that you don't have it, or you just can't afford it and, again, tell yourself you hate it so you don't care that you don't have it. I just happen to love the PS3, so all you haters are missing out.

Its not about hate, its just liking another system over the other one. Personally i use to like ps1 and ps2 till i got bored of playing games on there. so shifted to Nintendo DS and loved it, which made my mind buying the Wii, with its games.

I don't hate it.

I would never buy it, and I will adamantly defend the system I DO own (the Wii)

But I don't hate it. Please, for the sake of the current PS3 owners, put some GAMES on that system. People think the Wii has it bad? Look at the PS3 (no offense).

The PS2 took nearly a year to get some good games. These days games need 2 years of development and 20 Million Dollar! Of course we won't see a flood of games 5 months after launch!

I think hate is probably a bit extreme, don't you think? (OK, I know the board I'm dealing with here, but still) Maybe its the game selection. I think it would have more to do with the way Sony is marketing the system. Some serious arrogance there.

It really shouldn't be about the price, although that's a big deal for many people. Personally, if I had the cash to buy either the 360 or the PS3 and say ,two games, right now, I would buy the 360. No contest. If the PS3 was exactly the same price as the 360, and I had the same cash flow, I would pick the 360.  Again no contest. Heck, if I had $600 and no game systems at all... I would go out and buy the Playstation 2 and a boat load of games, before I bought the PS3.

Its simply a matter of value. Don't hate the system... hate the people that are not giving a loyal fan what they want.

I dislike Sony right now because it won't acknowledge any of it's faults anywhere about anything.  The system is overpriced, the graphics aren't as revolutionary as they claimed, the game lineup is less than stellar, Blu Ray format is not as good as they claim, yet sony continues to say "WE BIG NUMBA 1!! YOU GUYSES SUCK!!" They have egos bigger than and old X-box controller.

Ok, can you not think for yourself or something? Only you know why you hate PS3, and it's pretty clear you don't have a good reason. You obviously don't understand value and a huge chunk of the human race loves hating on stuff, especially stuff that's #1. They're always looking for the negative and sorry to say, but those so called idiotic statements from Sony are no different than this thread you started.

Exactly. You and the hundred other rabid PS3 haters have no reason at all, but the board is still flooded with Sony hate. It's kind of sad, really.

The reason I dislike amnd am beginning to dislike the PS3 so much is because of some of the fanboys in systemwars. Not only do they consider themselves and their gaming machines better and more sophisticated than the rest but they constantly disrespect people who use the other consoles. I suppose if I was a PS3 fan I would think the same of the 360 fanboys but regardless I have and own a 360. I actually do intend to purchase a Wii as well once they become more available and maybe some day a PS3.

 

I'm not speaking about every fan of the PS3 but the small minority who continue to post utter nonsense speaks leaps and bounds over those that speak with respect.

This is what the TC really feels. But instead of admitting it, he creates PS3 bashing posts. Bash all you want but those $600 won't magically appear in your pocket. Try finding a job.

The price is ridiculous. That's really all there is to it.
