Playstation 3 vs Xbox – Microsoft’s revenge

Posted in General, news & rumors at 2:36 pm by playstation3

Another Microsoft jerk came out saying that the must-have Sony Playstation 3 will not be able to compete with their Xbox 360.
Let’s see what I’ve read :)
You tell that to all the people that thought Xbox 360 was going to have super-duper DVD technology, and all the people that are already disappointed in the lack of Xbox 360 units available, while some consumers call the Xbox 360 launch the most horrible and mismanaged launch for a video game console.

Speaking about Sony PlayStation 3, let’s not forget what the die-hard fans of Sony PS3 thought in Japan. You know, Sony-land. Japan consumers made it clear that the Microsoft Xbox 360 isn’t the same type of next-gen console they wanted. Afterall, Sony is promising all the DVD and HD goodies for the PlayStation 3.

I am sure that most of the gamers in Japan just laughed at what they saw, after learning a bit on what the Sony has planned for the PS3.

Microsoft is left with complete embarassment after the Japan launch. Xbox 360 retailers in Japan still have plenty of stock on shelves. Shoppers are just walking by.

Meanwhile, there is a shortage in North America and Europe, causing Xbox 360 pre-order consumers to become angry, and perhaps, regretful that they even placed any money for this console. Still waiting, since mid-November, still no Xbox 360.

Amazon really messed up this launch even further by taking November pre-orders, then launching some “early-bird” special to allow new consumers to buy the Xbox 360 right away. Again, putting the Xbox 360 pre-order consumers back on the bottom of the stack.

Microsoft does promise new shipments before Christmas, but not that many. Here we go again, another “2 or 4” Xbox 360 consoles for eachr Wal-Mart!

How long can this go on before the game market shifts to Sony PlayStation 3? If Microsoft really wants us to believe that the Xbox 360 is this giant-muscle console that will dominate Sony PlayStation 3, they are wishing. I mean, it’s another marketing hype thing.

I am sure when Sony or Nintendo Revolution launches their game consoles, it won’t be the total disaster we’ve seen with Microsoft. The largest software company in the world has an excuse for everything — on why there are shortages, and why their console is the best.

And now comes the dreadful noise from a Microsoft top boss trying to convince people that the Sony PS3 cannot compete with the Microsoft Xbox 360. Geeze, not so fast there, Microsoft. Get your own problems fixed before making such accusations.

This was an article from GameShout.

I don’t see the point in publishing Microsoft’s babblings, but I guess someone likes to read it :). The “next generation console war” is the business before the business.

A lot of rumors about Microsoft employees and, again, almost nothing about games.

Blah.

    the xbox 360 is not that good because it over heats within an hour what do you think?

    the 360 is an OK console but the only thing going for it is the cheaper cost. In my opinion the games so far are just perthectic. The ps3 might cost more but wait one or two years (which isn’t that hard, there is nothing wrong with the ps2 or original xbox) and prices will drop. Plus it doesn’t matter if the ps3 cost more because you get more in the console. Also xbox live is no help for the 360 because the ps3 will have a all new network called PLAYSTATION HUB. Thats just my opinion.

    also like what louis said there have been problems with the 360 such as overheating is what thought microsoft was suppose to fix by building the 360 from scratch. I agree with everone who calls it xbox 1.5
