Fuelling the Fanboy Fires : Why the PS3 is Failing

59 second read

Failstation Those of us with just a modicum of gray matter have gotten over the console wars and come to terms with the fact that -barring a few pros and cons on either side – the current gen HD consoles are pretty equal.

There are others though who feel that the fanboy wars have gotten a little too quiet, and have felt the need to venture in to no-man’s land, trying to reignite the silly bickering that the rest of us have forgone. One such person is James Hyde of DigitalBattle.com, who’s composed a list of 10 reasons why he thinks the Sony’s PS3 is a failstation.

While he does make a decent point or two -  if you take in to consideration   the 20 million PS3s shifted -  then his list begins to scream of blatant, misguided fanboyism.

Read it here, then let’s discuss his inanity in the comments section.

Editor. I’m old, grumpy and more than just a little cynical. One day, I found myself in possession of a NES, and a copy of Super Mario Bros 3. It was that game that made me realise that games were more than just toys to idly while away time – they were capable of being masterpieces. I’m here now, looking for more of those masterpieces.

    You guys are just adding fuel to the fire by reporting and linking to these kind of articles. :angry:

  • I don’t think that anyone takes flamebait like this seriously enough anymore for it to actually become an issue. These people are just moaning for no good reason. Everyone is aware of all the issues that each console has by now.

  • Lupus

    He does make some points

  • Lupus

    But he also is an idiot in most cases 😀

  • spl0it

    I heard the PS3 sucks

  • Inferno888

    hehe, those fanboys can sure as hell get upset

  • The most interesting thing about these articles are
    the responses from the fanboys and girls. Geez,so
    quick to throw insults and get all worked up over
    crap like that. Is the requirement to being a fanboy/girl
    really only to have the mental capacity and vocabulary
    of a 5 year old? :devil:

  • Inferno888

    HAHA… I like this comment^

  • Someone

    Gotta love this one
    “That is what journalism is; opinions based on facts not opinions based on opinions.”

  • Yeah, you have to take this stuff with just a tiny pinch of salt.

  • RivaZA

    Exactly. Most of the points, if not all, are right.

  • Reaver

    The only thing that upsets me about this article is Geoff’s English.
    “…trying to stir up the reignite the silly bickering…”
    Seriously, Geoffrey, I expected more from you. You’ve disappointed me.

    LG washing machines is just some must better than samsung.

  • That is the obvious result of bad edit; quite frankly, I blame the editor. 😉

  • 🙁

    I do distinctly remember asking someone (no names mentioned) to update the article they wrote :whistle:

    Though to be fair that was for a different problem 🙂

  • One up on me – I don’t even remember writing the article.

  • Reaver

    Ja but does your LG washing machine have incredible features that you paid tons for but never use? Like photon accelerators, dilithium crystals and flux capacitors? Coz if it doesn’t then it R teh suxx0r!!!!111oneone!! lollerskates roflcopter!!!!111!!

    1-800 GET A LIFE.
    You guys need one. :whistle:

  • lady

    I heard you’re a loser. :devil:

  • Glad to see no one took the bait on this!

  • janrik

    As a former PS3 owner I can confirm that is sucked.

  • SlippyMadFrog

    The next gen war is getting boring, we need something new to fight over.

    Does anyone in here support the ANC? If so, screw you faggot!!!11!! :angel:

  • DarthPenguin

    The next gen war hasn’t even started… they still fighting about the current gen…

    And I’m finally getting a PS3… I can finally play Ratchet and Clank and Uncharted and LBP… and then it can collect dust until GOW3!!!

    (Now I sit back and see if that works as better bait than the actual article)

  • WitWolfyZA

    I agree spOilt. I mean my cousin has a PS3, but he borrowed his brother’s X360, so that he could actaully play a wider library of games… Isnt that ironic?

  • All of the points in the fanboi’s article are correct to a point. Some of them WERE correct. The big issue is that despite those negatives (you could make a longer list for the xbox and an even longer list for the Wii), those criticisms does not mean a FAIL!

    Anyway, I’m getting a PS3 this year hopefully as well.

  • SlippyMadFrog

    “then it can collect dust”

    WHAT?!?!?! Blasphemy! You, sir, are a faggot!!!11!!11!!


  • RogueOne

    I get the points but I dont think it makes it a FAIL
    I actually can understand a Fanboi. I am one to a degree , I love my console and obviously I think its better than yours otherwise I would’nt have bought the thing. I am jealous of Killzone admitedly. What I cant understand is why Fanboi’s get so hot-under-the-collar when their precious console is poked at…..I mean do you really care what another person thinks of your console, I dont.

  • Inferno888

    it’s just something inside your head, i really can’t explain it, i am on my third xbox, and still love it to death, and my ps3 just collects dust! who the hell knows… :cheerful:
