The Xbox 360 Fanboy guide to the PS3

1 min read

So our known Xbox 360 fanboy, doobiwan, has been kind enough to give us a 10 point guide to the PS3 from a Xbox 360 fanboy’s point of view.

We will try and get a PS3 guide to the 360 up and going as well but for now check out the top 10 points below.

1. What is a PS3
The latest version of the George Foreman Grill

2. PS1&2 were game consoles why would this one be different
PS3 has no affiliation or compatibility with PS2, Any similarity is mere coincidence.

3. Seriously though, what games can you play on the PS3
Well the killer app so far is a co-op user generated penis construction game. It’s cute, but so are venomous sea urchins.

4. So what else can it do.
It can play movies off optical disc

5. So can my DVD player, my PVR, my car stereo and my fridge, so what?
It’s better quality

6. What, like does it make Spiderman 3 suck less? Can it make Meryl Streep look hot? Can it edit out Pauly Shore?
No it’s just more pixels.

7. So what does all that cost?
R5k for the complete Blu-Ray console experience

8. Everything?
Well… then there’s R800 for the real controller … and R150 for HD cables … R200 for the remote control .. oh and exclusive games are now over R800 …

9. Console Prices usually come down over time when is the PS3 getting a price cut?
It’s not. It’s got too many fiddly bits and is still running at a loss after 2 years on the market.

10. Apparently it’s worth it because it’ll have a 10 year life span
Technically polony has a life expectancy of over 10 years as well, the question is whether you really want to risk finding out …


My personal is the sea urchin comment but do you think there are some points that have been left out?

    omg… are you sure you want to cross this line?


  2. PillsburyDeeBoy

    November 10, 2008 at 12:14

    So what? This line gets crossed all the time. Lazy prefaced it by saying “the resident 360 fanboi” wrote the article, which should be sufficient for not taking it seriously – I know I don’t. However, as we know, there are people who ARE going to take it seriously…maybe too seriously… which I think is the point. It’s good for traffic…


  3. koldFU5iON

    November 10, 2008 at 12:18

    lol, my point exactly πŸ˜›

    look I think it’s funny, however as you say there are going to be some seriously offended fanboi’s, I just feel this kind of an article is better placed on a forum.

    November 10, 2008 at 12:21

    He forgot the part where the PS3 kicks dogs and steals from old people πŸ˜•

    I used to like polony. πŸ˜₯

    Friend of mine defends his PS3 to death.We both got Fallout 3 on the same day (he got the PS3 version and I got the 360 versions) and we played them both on his HDTV.My 360 has a HD so we ran it on HD while he had to play his PS3 on a standard definition cable.After we finsihed playing the 360 version on HD we plugged in the PS3 and ran it on standard definition and he said 😯 “OMG my PS3 version looks better on SD than your 360 version on HD! 😯 ” HAHA fanboy much? πŸ˜† πŸ˜† πŸ˜†

    another day another pointless console bashing blog what else is new….


  9. PillsburyDeeBoy

    November 10, 2008 at 13:20

    Have you been on the 360 forum this weekend? I think it’s better that the 360 loyalists and the PS3 loyalists don’t mix at all and don’t talk about the other’s respective console at all. It’s rather silly.

    The more I think of it… the more I realise… nothing good comes from being a fanboi…

    You guys forgot that the ps3 cures cancer πŸ˜€

    hahahahah…not. not funny

    Console bashing = Crap reading = Waist of my time

    I understand that you would like to keep this site exciting and fresh , but trying to start a mud slinging contest is braindead.


  13. SlippyMadFrog

    November 10, 2008 at 14:05

    You forgot about teh 4D! πŸ˜›


  14. ewie

    November 10, 2008 at 14:08

    Where is there any console bashing in it, it is a funny
    take on the console war. If you take this serious –
    you most likely are a fan boy.


  15. ewie

    November 10, 2008 at 14:10

    So but just replying here it must have been worth your while
    seeing that you read it, and according to your own post you
    don’t read crap post- so just the heading should have decided
    it for you.


  16. doobiwan

    November 10, 2008 at 14:18

    Eish 😳

    as you may have noticed this post is a bit out of context, it’s part of a 300+ page Flamebait Friday thread on MyBB and is OBVIOUSLY intended as jest.

    I bare no ill will towards the PS3. I have friends with PS3’s. I believe they make great talking points when there’s nothing else to talk about, and some people even find them useful. πŸ˜‰

    And just in case you were wonder, yes the “xbots” won this Friday and the PS3 fans are still sulking πŸ˜›


  17. 0rk0

    November 10, 2008 at 14:23

    It just so happens that I’ve got time to waste : )

    But here’s your noddy badge…


  18. baba

    November 10, 2008 at 14:41

    I enjoyed it, except for point 1. It is a bit old and unoriginal.

    Can’t wait for the PS3 Fanboy guide to the 360!


  19. Macethy

    November 10, 2008 at 15:06

    And when it overheats it cures Athlete’s foot! 😯

    @anyone upset by this post – Guys… it’s a joke. Really.

    I’m sure there’s an xbox equivalent floating around somewhere on the internet and it’s only a matter of time before it gets posted here as well.

    I for one think the PS3 is great. My study door used to bang and scare the crap out of me when i studied. Not anymore since I put my PS3 there to keep it open.

    The R800 for exclusives is the real killer


  22. SlippyMadFrog

    November 10, 2008 at 16:28

    Two exclusives and you could have almost bought a brand new Xbox360 arcade. 😯


  23. Mac

    November 10, 2008 at 16:59

    Funny how no Ps3 fans have stooped to this stupidity


  24. kabraal

    November 10, 2008 at 17:04

    Now why the fuck would some1 want a xbox arcade


  25. doobiwan

    November 10, 2008 at 17:13

    Yes, they’re an absolute brain trust. Spamming User Reviews on Metacritic is absolute genius.


  26. wwemark

    November 10, 2008 at 17:18

    and the xbots are any better?…I suppose 6.2 under the user reviews on metacritic for LBP is ps3 owners sabataging ourselves…hmmm


  27. Shodan

    November 10, 2008 at 17:25

    Look the sun is shining


  28. doobiwan

    November 10, 2008 at 17:37

    Sure, the ‘xbots’ came up with it first. But, what’s stupidity? Coming up with new and interesting ways of making fun of something – or crying about only to turn around and copy everyone else?


  29. SlippyMadFrog

    November 10, 2008 at 17:39

    Settle down kabraal. You can play the whole Xbox360 games library with one. And yes, that includes Gears of War and Fable


  30. SlippyMadFrog

    November 10, 2008 at 17:42

    There was a bunch of PS3 idiots posting the ending to Gears of War 2 on N4G on every thread. Thats just pure class πŸ˜‰


  31. SlippyMadFrog

    November 10, 2008 at 17:46

    This article is just to poke some fun at PS3 fans, don’t take seriously. I’m sure plenty of “PS3 fanboy guide to the Xbox360” guides will appear.


  32. David

    November 10, 2008 at 17:49

    WOWHOOooo hold the phone people this might just become World war 3. I happen to be one of those people who have both XBOX 360 and PS3 so I like either console just as much as the other one.!!


  33. Mac

    November 10, 2008 at 19:07

    Have you seen the user reviews for resistance 2, also rated below 4 before it was released. Do so research before you open your pie hole


  34. Shodan

    November 10, 2008 at 19:36

    Same Here man,

    Own both consoles and enjoy all the games I have no matter what platform it may be.


  35. kabraal

    November 10, 2008 at 20:17

    What library? Gears sounds cool tbh. Fable and the rest… not so much. Oh wait… can I has Mizz?


  36. kabraal

    November 10, 2008 at 20:18

    Wretched fanboys.. I hope they burn in hell!


  37. kabraal

    November 10, 2008 at 20:21

    New and interesting I agree with but god, the George foreman grill? Come now doobi… you can do better that that.


  38. kabraal

    November 10, 2008 at 20:23

    And me telling you to fuck off is merely meant to poke some fun. Can’t you understand that too? πŸ™‚


  39. SlippyMadFrog

    November 10, 2008 at 20:30

    You can also play Too Human and Halo, every PS3 owner’s wet dream. Admit it! πŸ˜‰


  40. LazySAGamer

    November 10, 2008 at 21:29

    Just to clarify two things here.

    1. I posted it because I thought it was original and it had local interest

    2. I don’t know of a PS3 list like this

    Please people it isn’t meant to be taken seriously and with no disrespect to doobiwan we could most probably improve some points a bit.


  41. Milesh Bhana

    November 10, 2008 at 23:14

    guys be nice to the PS3, they just got an awesome game, Bioshock, and at the end of the month they’ll get Alone in the Dark… PS3 rocksss!!!!!!


  42. LazySAGamer

    November 10, 2008 at 23:32

    Now that’s inflammatory πŸ˜‰


  43. kabraal

    November 11, 2008 at 06:23

    That’s not the point. The point is, like slippy said, it’s meant to poke fun at the PS3. Now that’s all fine and dandy. Problem is, when PS3’ers start picking fun back, you get all defensive. Surely if you can dish it out, you can take it on the chin as well?


  44. kabraal

    November 11, 2008 at 06:26

    Actually I always keep a emergency stash of R2500 in a drawer should I want to blow it on useless stuff. IÒ€ℒm thinking of getting a Wii.


  45. kabraal

    November 11, 2008 at 06:34

    Sheesh, look I’m glad AitD was released on 360 first. Better let a 360’er drop R600 on a shit game before I do. Now I know to avoid it like a plague. πŸ™‚

    Bioshock on the other hand is really awesome.


  46. Milesh Bhana

    November 11, 2008 at 07:17

    At the PS3 or AiTD ?


  47. 0rk0

    November 11, 2008 at 09:01

    Sorry to disappoint you kabraal, but apparently if we (PS3 owners) dare raise an opinion on this site, we are considered immature…

    It’s best just to ignore them, they are not worth it.
    We are happy with our consoles and don’t need to justify our reason for buying a PS3 to anyone…

    We will laugh in the end however, when Micro$oft reveals it’s true colors, as many PC owners have learnt already.


  48. SlippyMadFrog

    November 11, 2008 at 09:02

    I’ll sell you my Wii.


  49. doobiwan

    November 11, 2008 at 09:16

    Yeah I know 😳

    If you read the original post, I did wing it at 01h30 in the morning … πŸ™„


  50. doobiwan

    November 11, 2008 at 09:19


    If you want to dish, dish, go for it. FBF is all in good fun. What’s more apparent is that rather than coming up with a decent witty retort, the PS3 fanboys are just whining about it, where’s the fun in that?

    (can we call PS3 fanboys ‘Suckboys’ here or is that considered offensive as well?)


  51. LazySAGamer

    November 11, 2008 at 09:25

    Just to clarify, we post many pro-PS3 stories here and I am at the moment looking for a reverse list to publish as well.

    If you have one or can add to one please feel free to drop me a line.

    Or if not you can support the PS3 by entering our PS3 exclusive SingStar comp that we are running


  52. kabraal

    November 11, 2008 at 09:43

    You have a Wii. Oh.Dear.God.


  53. Fox1

    Were you watching infomercials at that time? :mrgreen:


  54. Anghild

    November 11, 2008 at 10:49

    Now how would a PS3 “idiot” know the ending to GOW2??


  55. 0rk0

    November 11, 2008 at 11:17

    Please enlighten me why I have to lower myself to your level of mud slinging?

    We are more than happy to let you be happy with your console of choice, but for some unknown reason xbox360 fanboys always have to justify their console.

    Sad indeed….


  56. LazySAGamer

    November 11, 2008 at 11:24

    it’s so nice to see mortal enemies getting along πŸ˜‰


  57. 0rk0

    November 11, 2008 at 11:26

    I don’t see why we (PS3 owners) have to follow the Xbox360 owners lead….it’s just sad. You on the other hand are probably smiling about all the trafic…so I believe congratulations are in order…

    As for Singstar…not my type of thing…
    I’ll rather support my great console by buying it’s games and stay positive, instead of trashing the competion.

    Actually, I torrented a illegal PS3 version only released on the black market. Eurogamer says it haz betta graffix


  64. SlippyMadFrog

    November 11, 2008 at 13:42

    Bless your friends uncle! I’ll buy him a beer.


  65. SlippyMadFrog

    November 11, 2008 at 13:47

    I’ve heard you can play Xbox360 exlusives on the PS3 by downloading a linux Xbox360 emulator. It also makes waffles.


  66. SlippyMadFrog

    November 11, 2008 at 13:49

    fyi, you’ll need the latest firmware update for the waffles.


  67. doobiwan

  79. Wesley

    November 12, 2008 at 07:58

    Well not many people i know own PS3s to be honest…. argh both consoles are great it just depends on which one you prefer of the two. despite the lack of games on the PS3 ,and the hardware failure rate of the X360.

    If South Africa could get LIVE ill declare 360 the ultimate console of this generation lol who is with me???


  80. kabraal

    November 12, 2008 at 10:00

    What lack of games?


  81. David

    November 17, 2008 at 13:15

    By the way the PS3’s online multiplayer is 100% FREE unlike the Xbox 360’s with which you have to pay for a Gold membership just to play multiplayer!! WESLEY


  82. doobiwan

    November 17, 2008 at 13:45

    But ultimately you get what you pay for. VoIP, MSN integration, FoF, and shortly party and media share.

    doobiwans last blog post..Gears 2 Flashback Map Pack, gimme! Please.
