    I found this and thought I would share it.
    It seems like a very logical way to pick your gaming system

    Fixed it for ya..

    Anyone that in 2010 thinks the PS3 does not have by far and away the best games is clearly a cretin. The only reason people still play the Xbox is because

    a) they have invested so much money in Xbox Live fees, Addons, HD-DVD drives and Games, they can't afford to switch

    b) their friends are still stuck on it for the same reasons as a).

    Of course this irritates them immensely as deep down they know they don't just have the inferior hardware and costly TCO, they also have the inferior games now too.. The only way to make them feel better, is by posting mindless crap like this on random internet forums.

    mgillespie's posts are always good for a laugh. Take this one for example: -

    And an explanation for his behaviour from Destructoid: -

    Fact: PS3 fanboys are the worst - Destructoid

    Read that article and it sums up people like him perfectly. The console he favours has sold the least, yet it's all of the Wii, 360 and PC gamers that are wrong, or just victims of a mass conspiracy by the media against Sony. LOL!

    What does an Xbox 360 and a wife of 5 years have in common? They both refuse when you try to turn them on.

    Actually I would disagree, anyone that's even been on Xbox Live will know how bad things are. I have both systems, my PS3 gets almost all my gameplay these days, the Xbox games I play have all dried up and are generally better on PS3. The one big difference is that the PS3 community is generally much more mature, Xbox Live is full of annoying kids.

    It's also worth noting that it was a Xbox Troll that started this thread.

    As for that Destructoid blog, thats just a pile of Garbage. Sony fanboys are rightly very upset. The PS3 is by far the best console, with the best exclusive games and outstanding reliability and featureset (and value for money). Compared to the pile of unreliable crap that Microsoft rushed out and inflicted on this gaming generation, or the last-gen Gamecube rehash that Nintendo offered us, it's an insult that it's currently (but only just) in 3rd place this generation.

    You only have to look at how the on-line blogs have treated the PS3 this generation and it's clear to see favortism by the American media, supporting the American console and the American $$$$$. It was clear the media (and in particular the American media) were out to get Sony, why? Because they launched their console when it was feature complete and fully tested? Is that suddenly a crime? Should they have scrapped the Blu-Ray drive, bunged a DVD in there, and canceled the test program like Microsoft did? Would the press have loved them then? Of course not, they would be the first to complain too. The American media REALLY embarrasses me, it's truly abysmal.

    This is one my my favorite posts of pro-American, anti-Foreign console hate. How the PS2 is doomed to fail...

    http://www.forbes.com/2001/01/25/0125disaster.html
    (funny how things turn out, this Disaster Of the Day turned out to be one of the best (and best selling) consoles of all time)

    (PS, I'm American born, living/working in Europe, where I can see behind the FUD and HYPE, and judge a product on it's quality and can make up my own mind on things and not need IGN/Joystiq/Kotaku or whoever to tell me what to think...)

    Uhuh. Suuuuure. :p

    Guess you didn't read the article provided either, but both network is just as bad. If there is mic on PS3 people (if they can afford it) it's just as much noise there. So stop the fanboyismn and take it with a smile like some of the other PS3 users in this thread have done. :)

    First post was meant as a joke, if you showed something similar with x360 you would probably getting a lol out of us. So this does prove the points in that article. Even if you slightly say something about PS3, we will get instant attacked and raged down by the fanboys. Do the same with us and you will get giggles most of the time from us. :p

    Now down to unreliable fact, my ps3 got knackered after 8 months. I sent it in too sony, my expected time to get my PS3 back is in 3 months. Service?

    My first x360 (halo ed), well - I still have it - haven't any problems so far with it and it still lives perfectly well. Though will say I have mostly used my mw2 ed since I got that one. So again, come up with facts that matters mate and not fairytales. :p

    But back to topic:

    And PS3 owners are the worst? They don't go around digging up lame YouTube videos from 2006....

    Are there any games here that actually have a life, as I don't see too many.
    Not really much fairytales. It's universally accepted that the Xbox failure rate, even on newer units is somewhere north of 50% depending on what data you use. It's also accepted that the PS3 is somewhere south of 1%.

    Of course there will be people that buck that trend, as thats what trends are.... I wish I bucked the Lottery trend.

    Both those Flow charts are way off. I've use to PC game, and had consoles for friends, and went strictly console. Got sick of wondering if my setup could run the newest game. Wii sucks, and I like the 360 over the PS3.

    I've got a spare sense of humour here if anyone wants to borrow it.... :rolleyes:

    Remember the rules please, and try to keep a sense of perspective. It's a gaming system, not your mother's virtue so there's no need for insulting language.

    I think you need to borrow it a lot more out in the gaming session. It's a warfare here. I think I have seen more fights here then in Political ground.

    Looks like Mafia 2 is the next in a long line of games to be inferior on the PS3: -

    Mafia II creator clarifies: the PS3 version will look inferior, Mafia II PS3 News | GamesRadar

    Or maybe GamesRadar is part of the global conspiracy against Sony as well?

    The flowchart the OP posted is amusing, but it's not that far off the mark. With the PS3 having no cross-game chat, no private voice chat, no party mode, not having cross-game invites in all games and so on, it really isn't set up for quality online gaming like the 360 and PC are.

    As for the PS3 failure rate being less than 1%, I beg to differ. The YLOD and BROD are extremely common. I'd say the failure rate of the older models is closer to 50%, based on some of the polls I've seen. Of the people I know with a PS3, I'm the only one that hasn't had one fail. There's a poll on AV Forums (another site that Mgillespie is banned from, lol) and the PS3 failure rate among members of that site is over 40% and it doesn't take into account repeat failures. Some fanboys will believe that they want to believe, regardless of all of the evidence to the contrary.

    Well they have taken a statement and twisted it.

    "When designing Mafia II, we optimized for each of the three different systems the game would run on to make sure the core experience was the best it could be. Because of this, there are some differences from one platform to the next. In terms of the PS3 version, I wanted to clarify a couple points you have been asking about: There will not be highly detailed grass or large pools of blood, the cloth movement is less noticeable than, for example, the PC version, and the visual fidelity in the demo is generally representative of what you’ll see in the full game."

    What's rather sad, is some Xbox fanboy has taken the time to add this "controversy" (does he even know what the word means? It seems not), to Wikipedia. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mafia_II#PlayStation_3_version_controversy

    Who said PS3 fanboys are the worst? That is plain sad...

    I would also beg to differ about the long list of games that are inferior on the PS3. Out of the hundreds of titles, there are a handful on each system that are notificbly better on one system or another. FinalFantasy on Xbox was so bad that Microsoft had to resort to using the PS3 footage to advertise the game....

    Xbox Advert Using PS3 Footage TheSixthAxis.com

    As for failure rates:

    No Fuss Reviews - Survey Failure Rate Results (console 2009)

    You might want to have a read of this, it 'aint a pretty read.

    Xbox 360 defects: an inside history of Microsoft’s video game console woes | VentureBeat

    http://venturebeat.com/2008/10/16/microsoft-sued-for-allegedly-covering-up-xbox-360-defects/

    And worst of all: http://blog.seattlepi.com/digitaljoystick/archives/129866.asp


    In short: Microsoft knew the machine was broken, but they also know that being first to market, and that American gamers were stupid and buy whatever Microsoft told them to buy, they could cover the problems with marketing gloss and make them go away.

    Mafia II may be worse on PS3 compared to the PC version, but then so will the Xbox version. It does not really bother me that on occasion a poor port comes along, as with a PS3 and PC, I have the best platform coverage, I get all the PS3 exclusives (which totally outclass anything the Xbox has to offer), and I also get all the Xbox games too, but in their PC version, which are almost always superior too.

    PS3/PC combo = the best of both worlds (best console exclusives, best Xbox versions on PC)
    Xbox/PC combo = a crappy combo (no PS3 titles, and Xbox exclusives better on the PC)

    You do know that the 360 has more true exclusives (i.e. games that can't be played anywhere else) than the PS3, don't you? It always makes me laugh when someone that isn't very well educated on these matters makes the statement that they can play "all the Xbox games" on a PC. Pure ignorance. I already proved to you that the 360 has more highly rated titles than the PS3 in another thread using Metacritic scores.

    Oh dear, lol. Perhaps they accidentally shipped the PS2 version on a Blu-Ray disc.

    As for cross-platform game performance, here's Eurogamer's face-off results: -

    Better on 360 = 124 games
    Better on PS3 = 17 games

    Oh dear, lol. Cue the "but Eurogamer are part of the conspiracy against Sony......." posts.

    There's a good reason why you're banned from AV Forums, PSU.com, HighDefDigest.com etc. As a guy said to you on Ars Technica recently: -

    Your obsession is unhealthy.

    An idiot that actually believes Eurogamer/Digital Foundry's twisted view on gaming.

    It's well established that they not only cherrypick games to compare, but even what bits of games to compare. Just like you are cherrypicking one game (Mafia II)...

    The bottom line is this, the PS3 and Xbox are very different inside. When the PS3 is not hobbled by the constraints of the Xbox, it shows it's true colours. A look at any PS3 exclusive will show this, it totally blows anything on Xbox out of the water. Visuals in Uncharted2, Killzone2, Heavy Rain etc etc etc make the Xbox look last-generation. That is what really upsets you.

    Pathetic. You need to wake up mate.

    Ahhh, here comes the insults now. Of course, Eurogamer (and Lens of Truth, IGN Insider etc.) are lying and manufacturing the results because everyone in the gaming world has it in for Sony! *tightens tin foil hat*

    But I own a PS3, 360, Wii, DS, PSP and gaming PC. I don't miss out on any games and I don't go around loads of different sites shouting loudly about one particular company and putting down other companies, insulting people and so on until I get banned because I can't keep a lid on my childish temper. It's you that does that. You should be ashamed of yourself really because you're allowing yourself to become delusional and worked up about something as trivial as video games, to the point where you actually get banned from various communities. Now that truly is pathetic.

    *waves "go fried" flag*

    I remember a quote from destructoid about PS3 being the worst fans: "I'm not telling you anything you don't already know, and if you're reading this and are currently angry or offended by any of the statements, you're only going to prove just how correct I am."

    My favorite bit of this whole scenario that he seems to not understand is that many of us here that respond to these threads own all three consoles and a gaming PC which ultimately would make us qualified critics of the issue at hand since we have all the gaming platforms available to us.

    Oh and.. Go Fried! lol
