Lmao...it's funny. With all the fanboys trashing Sony on the internet, you'd think that they represented a prevailing opinion in one's everyday life. However it is not necessarily the case.

Just about everyone I've spoken with (not typed with, but spoken with) is dead set on PS3. My friends in Baltimore, D.C., New Hampshire, Boston, and especially here in my native Western New York, the 360 isn't even being considered as an option.

They're all just waiting for the PS3 to be readily available.

Such an interesting thing, a difference of opinion.

But anyway, pardon me if I fail to find certain doom for Sony in the blubberings of some lameo who posts on fucking Gamespot's forums. Half of that shit is conjecture and lies, anyway.

Fanboys kill me...carbon based organisms that function and yet are simultaneously Devoid Of Life...

Get Laid, willya?

Since they don't even consider the 360 an option, does that mean they haven't even compared it with the PS3? If they haven't, then that's being a Sony fanboy, or being blindly loyal to the Sony brand.

PS3's a good system. It's just got some shitty launch games and a pricetag that would make even the most avid gamer turn away in disgust. I'm sure that once some more games come out (or when the price drops) business will pick up.

It is what it is......I don't think they're "fanboys" as they really aren't "gamers." They're getting it for Madden and NBA Live and maybe a shooter or something. Well, one of my friend likes Katamari Damacy, but that's pretty much it outside of the aforementioned games.

No, they're not fanboys, they just don't really care enough to check out a new system, learn a new mode of controller and adjust accordingly. They've been playing PS since they gave up their Sega Geneses back in the mid nineties. Sony always puts out a quality product and it meets their standards.

I knew you'd have something to say about that.

What's funny is the games you mentioned are multi-platform, and thus far have been reviewed better on the 360 by gaming sites like IGN, Gamespot, etc. Not only could they get a similar gaming experience, they could save some money as well.

To each their own though

My friend got a PS3. It just seems really unfinished. You wouldn't be able to understand until you played one though. It's really nothing when you compare it to the 360. I think that the PS3 could eventually be decent once it gets some updates and a price cut. Otherwise, Sony's done for.

I played Tony Hawks Project 8 and if I'm spending 600 dollars on a system I do not want to see hands and foots and heads going threw walls and rails and the ground.
The Wii is better.

I don't agree. My definition of a fanboy is someone who is totally into their console, to the point where they feel the need to rep how good their console is and how bad others are in comparison.

The people I mentioned could not give one shit, and frankly they don't use their console enough outside of Madden to really even be called gamers.

IMO, if you can't be called a gamer, you can't be a fanboy.

Also, those guys could give a rat's ass about an extra 300 bucks. One lives in Boston and 300 bucks might cover his cell phone bill for a month. Two others live in Washington DC, and they are doing quite well as entrepreneurs.

The rest are here, and like I said, they could really give a rat's ass about "researching" another game system. They've used PS and PS2, they're getting PS3. It's not being a "fanboy," rather they just don't have the inclination to pick up a completely foreign console and learn from scratch. They game maybe 3 hours a week, if they're lucky.

I'd say they're the antitheses of fanboys. Fanboys care about it. Like you, STICK and Sub. The amount of dialogue the three of you have had as to which console is "Better" is a good demonstration of what a fanboy is.

Every couple of days you can count on STICK posting something about how PS3 sucks, even though I'm not certain he's seen or played one.

Every couple of months you can count on Sub to do the same for PS2 or PS3 or Sony in general. The only difference being he's not here as often as STICK is. If he was, I'm sure his numbers would be comparable to say the least.

That is being a fanboy.

Buying the PS3 because it's the newest version of the console you've been using for the last 11 years and you want something to do for an hour or so on a Saturday night before you pass out after getting back from the bar...that's not being a fanboy.

That's simply a case of having enough money to blow on something that is largely unused and inconsequential, but not having the inclination to go test other similar products out.

Damn. Uhh, hi...this is Glue...total mistake...but it's me.

I fucked up STICK's post thinking I was quoting it and replying. Instead, in a moment of fucktardedness, here I am. Sorry. I'm baked and it's past 1...my bad.

STICK, correct me if I'm wrong, but your post said that you never specifically said PS3 sucked, just from what you've seen and read you've drawn inferences.

And that you pimp 360 because you love it and for $200 bucks less it's a great value and it rocks your world...

I forget the third paragraph...but it was important. Sorry dude. Seriously...

I've gotten like 18 hours of sleep this week...I think maybe I just need to tuck in and go to bed.
