PS3 Fanboys are the worst

2 min read

There is nothing more annoying in the gaming world than rabid fanboys.

I am not talking about the people who prefer one system over the other. I am talking about the rabid fools who troll the Internet looking for bad news about the other system and then post meaningless idiotic remarks to try and prove their point. Or the people who just cannot accept that someone might have said something bad about their favourite console.

However there does seem to be a recurring theme between each consoles fanboys… First you get the Wii… They don’t even seem to have fanboys which is great. Then you get the 360 Fanboys who will completely ignore anything good that the PS3 has and will continuously hammer on about the great games the 360 has whilst completely ignoring the problems that it has…

Then you get the PS3 fanboys. Who are a special breed all to themselves.. Not only are they the most vocal they seem to have the lowest intellect of the lot. If I write a story which is against the PS3 or Blu-Ray then I get fantastic comments like

PS3 broke a million in Japan in less than 9 months. You’ve yet to do it in over 2 years! LAWL. Go suck Pete Moore’s rod. Oh wait, he left MS because he’s actually got a brain. Later loser.

And not to be outdone his moronic friend comes along with

Do you think Bill Gates is looking down at you from his castle in heaven? Is he going to give you a medal for making bitchy little comments about Sony. You think people will read this blog and spontaneously converted to your cause? Please, South Africans have more brains than…oh yeah, never mind.

And then the always popular

Haha, XBOX360 fanbois are losers!

I remember in the beginning I used to actually try and address the complaints that the PS3 fanboys had with my article until that is I realised they just want me to praise the PS3 and ignore it’s faults.

It really is a strange world we live in when someone can be so vocal and aggressive about a gaming console that they have no true link to… Now if you have a comment about this article please pass it through a word processor first so that I don’t need to translate from gibbering moronese.

    So what makes you think 360 fanboys are any different? The fact remains that there are trolls on both sides and to single out one side is a true testament to bias. Maybe not intentionally, but have we not seen the same thing out of the other side like “Blind PS3 lemmings, Sony loves you,” or “Waitstation,” “Delaystation,” “Keep waiting with your Gaystation while I actually enjoy GAMES!” So as a PS3 owner myself, I feel bad that you would single out one side like there is some kind of disease incorporated when buying a PS3 when everyone knows that rabid fanboys can be found on both sides.

    I personally am a self admitted Sony fanboy, however I do not spam Xbox news/sites, and always try to be civil when arguing my case. I also try to remain open minded, and agree that things could be improved on the PS3, and that the 360 and Wii do have their advantages.

    Just thought I’d let the world know there’s at least one ‘normal’ Sony Fanboy 🙂

  • Martin Arscope

    What a kak article. And written by an Xbot fagboy no less. Yes I’ve seen your biased posts on the Xbox forums and the MYADSL forums you tit.

    And as for “trying to address the complaints of PS3 owners blah blah”, please don’t. The PS3 community is trying to grow, and does not need your help. And your presence will only serve to drive people away.

    Further more, your “lowest intellect” generalisation is offending. So how about you go and fuck yourself you arrogant and naive twat. You are not a journalists ass. So how about you get another hobby, because you reek of noobism, bias and hipocrasy.

    And guess what, I own both consoles.

    M.A.

  • LazySAGamer

    So John and Steve come here and attempt to prove me wrong, yet Martin just has to fall right into it…

    To Martin, I would love for you to show me where I am biased.

    Steve thanks for the good feedback,

    John, I by no means see all Xbox 360 fanboys as mature or that all PS3 fanboys are like Martin. I do however think a greater majority of PS3 fanboys are more than willing to lower themselves to name calling and baseless accusations.

    Hmmm… this is lie a war, Only people are going crazy on the internet!
    Is it me… Or are Online threats, non-threatening?

    PEOPLE WAKE THE FUCK UP!
    It doesn’t count or scare people when you go hard core with a keyboard.

    Yes, There will always be fan boys. there’s fanboi’s with cars, F1, Motor sport, SPORT, computer components etc…!i!i!

    I am I fanboi and guess what I’M not dissing the xbox, because it’s good competition.

    EVER ONE GROW UP!

    To post that there are no Wii Fanboys makes me believe you are ignorant to what this platform war is. There are fanboys for each gaming system and each has their flaws. The PS3 doesn’t have any games that are a must have, the 360 really only has Gears, the Wii has a really cool controller but definitely not Next Gen. The 360 has had a yr head start on the PS3 but both look very promising for 08 while the Wii hasn’t really shown any killer games in the near future. The Wii looks really fun but I personally will not spend money on a gamecube with a new controller. The 360 with its new extended warranty has me apprehensive to spending my hard earned dollars on it and the only benefit to owning my current PS3 is that I can watch Hi-Def movies. I am looking forward to MGS4, Heavenly Sword, & Liar but I am seriously teetering on getting the Elite so that I can play Gears, Bio-shock, & Mass Effect. As a possible PS3 fanboy I to hope that I to have shown, as Steve, that we are civil and only want the best that competition can produce.

  • LazySAGamer

    Cochi you are getting confused about what I am classing as fanboy. Just because a person may prefer a certain console or feel that a certain console is better does not make them a fanboy.

    A fanboy is the person who spends more time insulting people who like other consoles instead of just enjoying the consoles they prefer.

    So if you go and buy a PS3 that will not make you a PS3 fanboy nor will buying the Elite make you a 360 fanboy… John and Steve above prove that.

    However Martin is the type of fanboy I am talking about…

  • can’t we all just get along 😛

  • Lazy… You are a true warrior to put up with comments like this all the time… let me give it a go:

    I can like to be moering you wif da fury wat are third to nun. You is speaking de kak from my awesomer console wat are de PSFree. It are de Cool, you is da poo poo head.

    PSFree are Leetzor RoXXOrZ 4 life. And you is ve stupid. You is making ve basic generalised statetetements what are too compllex for my tieny brain to make for understand. so is going to reply wif da comment what are supposed to be very clever in tone and shape.

    I is de cool, u is de dumb. Yay Yay PSFree.

    lollolololoolololololol

    lol… i guess somebody just got a lollipop for first prize in l33t nonsense. Games define consoles, not fanboys.

  • Did I win!? CooL! I dont even have a ps3!

  • Ruslan

    ROFL! All this for nothing! Nice one. 😉

  • JloYo

    Pode, I almost fell off my chair while reading your post.

    I am an avid gamer, I have a 360, but will buy a PS3 as soon as there are enough good quality games for the console. My two consoles will sit next to each other peacefully without any problems.

    Like koldFU5ION, why all this bickering? Freedom of choice gives you the opportunity to buy what you want. Let the games do the talking!

  • scrumpyjackson

    I can’t believe you went there Lazy! It would be cool if we could have cross platform online games then we could settle the argument over gaming.

  • LazySAGamer

    Flaimbait Friday stuff ;)…

    I was bored of being insulted by PS3 fanboys at this time, I am happy to say though that since this was published I now have some very intelligent PS3 fans visiting the site which is a huge improvement…
