That made you stop and look didn’t it!!
Well don’t get worried, I’m not really going to list 5 reasons, but it illustrates the article I am going to write.
It’s now five years since the Xbox 360 launched and four years since the PS3 hit the store shelves, but still the Fanboy war rages on.
You’d think after all this time that they would have given up, but every day I still see articles comparing the screen-shots of the same game on different systems, just to get hits on a website.
But the biggest issue I have is not with these articles, but with the ones that pretend not to be Fanboys but really are.
I came across one such article today entitled MY FIRST WEEK WITH AN XBOX 360 AS A PS3 OWNER.
Now in itself I have no issues with someone comparing one console with another, but I expect a balanced opinion, unfortunately this wasn’t to be the case here is an excert.
However, it’s not all fine and dandy for the Xbox- the one thing that annoyed me most is all the extras you have to buy- LIVE, batteries (or the Microsoft’s Plug & Play), wireless adapter (that is expensive, coming in at £30 or more; alternatively you could just but an Ethernet cable) and for me, I’m going to have to get an overpriced HDD and a headset too. Darn.
Now the issue with the above is that this guy obviously bought an Arcade version, which doesn’t include an HDD, and if you are going to make a comparison, at least compare apples with apples and not apples with oranges.
As a result he got plenty of Fanboy comments, here are some of the more interesting ones.
Actually on PS3 you can view your trophies in game so you dont know what your talking about… YOU EPIC FAIL!!
The reply was.
I have both systems and I think they are both great.
@360GARBAGE Yeah, you can view your trophies after waiting 20 min for it to sync.
If that’s the only fault you have with the article, then it cant be an “EPIC FAIL” Go cry to your momma.
fanboy faggotry at its finest
To which was said.
Fanboy faggotry indeed.
Too bad real gamers don’t actually bother ever picking up a 360 since every game is just a crappy PC game.
PC gaming is Master Race.
PS3 is good though, since it has lots of exclusives you can’t get on PC.
There isn’t a single 360 exclusive that makes the console worth picking up. Some stupid interface and a crappy version of face will never be able to compete with a PC.
I play Starcraft, Age Of empires, Counter Strike, Quake Live, Crysis, Dwarf Fortress, Unreal Tournament 3, and thousands of games on my PC and you’re telling me a console with inferior controls, interface and practically no games is where “hardcore” gamers play?
Honestly there are better games on the Wii, PSP, and PS3. Like Monster Hunter, MAG, Demon’s Souls, Metroid and Uncharted 2.
Although you got a mainstream, laggy, unbalanced, glitchy, games like Halo, Gears Of war and COD MW2? DERP A HERP
Well do you know what, I have had enough of all the Fanboy idiots, for gods sake just be happy with whatever console you purchased and just play the games.
I don’t care if there are more blades of grass on your version, I don’t give a rats ass if the PS3 has Blu ray and the 360 doesn’t, or whether your console brings you a cup of tea in the morning.
Just turn on the console and enjoy what you’ve got (even if it is a Wii).
