Should Sony just stop producing PS3 systems and games and give up on the game system business? Click to vote at the top after you comment so we can actually see what people think


I think they need to die. Right now Playstation is as dead as Sega. They can still make average at best games, but they should not be trying to produce game systems. They should have already died, but they're clinging to life by stuffing a Blu Ray Player in a dead system. Just recognize that it's not worth the effort and let it end with a bit of dignity intact. They won't, but they should.

I think the PS3 was a pretty great system. I just can't figure out how they could top the PS3, so they shouldn't. So yeah, I agree that they should end with the PS3 and stop making systems.

BNuge : no i dont,hardware is what sony does,thus few ps3's break.microsoft however should stick to software,there consoles break too often and they are terible when you try to cancel your subscription. The fact is ps3 has blueray.xbox tried to say hd was the way to go,and now they dont even make hd dvd's anymore.xbox games can have as many as 3 disks,ps3 has all the data on one.ps3 has web browser.xbox dosent.xbox has cross chat,sony are preparing to launch it on ps3. ps3 has motion sensitive controls.xbox dosent.ps3 never tried tn seem cheap,the cheapest 360's came without harddrives and the equipment needed for online,something microsoft didnt mention in there adverts.ps3 can have almost any blue ray device linked to it,no matter the maker and any hard drive can be put in.xbox only allows microsoft made.ps3 has free online.xbox dosent.ps3 has free apps that you can install,and free content like full games,themes and add ons often.xbox,very rare.the controlers are rechargable and wireles,no need to buy wireless devices to plug into ps3.i should also add ps3 has been outselling xbox in europe and asia for the last 3 years.america is pretty much the only place xbox outsells,and i think its largely due to the fact microsoft is american.when it comes to tech,the japs are king.
With all this said,i struggle to see why the best console should give up?what can you truely say is unique about xbox?as far as i can see,the wii is unique,the ps3 is unique, the xbox is just a cheaper and lesser option i feel.if you try and say that ps3 loses on exclusives please give proof,and id ask you not to say halo because, even my friends who have xbox say,thats over hyped.
Your turn =p

You CAN'T make a system better than the PS3 with current tech. I see them as head and shoulders better than the rest of the field honestly.

Nintendo needed to release the next system already, they were that far behind. The Wii 2 will be good, but I dunno about PS3 level.

Microsoft needs to give up and go back to solely making computer goods. I see the 360 as an overglorified dung heap. It's the same thing as the PS3, but they already HAVE a PS3. So what's the point of having a PS3, and a PS3 with a different name?

So I don't think they should stop, but they shouldn't make a new one till it's played out it's role. The PS3 still has a lot to offer. I would argue that L.A. Noire, Dragon Age 2, and the like are very good games. Sure not making it themselves, but they made the hardware that can play those games, and I honestly think they make it the best.

I honestly never use the blu-ray on the PS3. I bought it because I felt, and still feel that the PS3 is superior.

I mean, I think the PS3 is as good as it gets for now, so focus on getting better games for it. Why leave the market when your product sells well?

I like my PS3.  I've never thought "Oh, there's no good games."  I don't know where that line of thought comes from.  Maybe I just enjoy every game too much.  I don't like FPS, and it seems to me that's all Xbox is good for.  PS3 might not seem as big here in North America, but they have way more loyalty and fans and games in Japan.  Maybe they don't bother translating as many of the games because there's a negative attitude towards the PS3 in America.  Also, from what I've heard from a few game developer interviews, it's easier to code games for the Xbox for English speakers, and for lazy people, LOL  One of the interviews with some guy from the Ratchet and Clank company kind of called out the third party developers who don't make games for PS3 and only Xbox for being lazy slackers who don't want to put in an extra bit of work.  I think Xbox and PS3 are both good systems, but if PS3 should give up, then so should Xbox, because the Wii outsells them both, and the NES outsold them both put together, LOL

How could you say such a horrible thing? I Love my PS2! What you have to say depends on the certain games. I would not want the PS3 to die because there ARE still great games like Final Fantasy and Rachet and Clank out... Once all the good titles go however, then I"m all for it.

BTowns :

I'm with you on the FPS stance. I don't care for them, it's kind of lame honestly.

I also have to agree that the lack of translations is possibly the fault of people constantly criticizing them despite having such a great system on the market.

The 360 is just a PS3 with less tech, and a different name. The disks don't have the capability most PS3 games ARE capable of. Plus it may be just me, but the graphics are better on the PS3 too.

catfight09 :



To all disagreers-



How many of Sony's successful games are not available on other systems?  An average game system with very few original games (that are good) can easily be considered a failure.  I'm not overly defensive of Xbox, but I do appreciate Halo.  I prefer Nintendo, but I am still open-minded.



Please do explain which of Sony's exclusive games make it worth spending money on the system?  You can't put all of your faith in Final Fantasy now that it has branched onto other systems.  There isn't really anything else that I've heard of.  



thenumberone :



You wrote a fairly long explanation, so I will counter parts of your argument.  



"ps3 has motion sensitive controls.xbox dosent"

Have you not heard of Kinect?  It still needs some work, but it's the first motion control system that does not have or need a controller.  I think it was released sooner than necessary, but it is still out.



"ps3 has free (this, that, and the other thing)"

That's because they need more people to be interested.  Microsoft has so many players that they can charge money and still maintain a strong fan base.  Have you noticed that Sony is the only company that feels the need to make a commercial purely to advertise the system?  They're in trouble and they're getting desperate.  



"ps3 has been outselling xbox in europe and asia for the last 3 years.america is pretty much the only place xbox outsells,and i think its largely due to the fact microsoft is american"

If that's your argument, then it's fair to say that PS3 outsells in Asia because it is Asian (Sony is based out of Japan).

Bnuge- 

3D Dot Game Heroes
Disgaea 3: Absence of Justice
Disgaea 4: A Promise Unforgotten
God of War III
Heavenly Sword
Heavy Rain
Infamous
Killzone 2
Killzone 3
LittleBigPlanet
LittleBigPlanet 2
MAG
Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots
The 4 or 5 Ratchet and Clanks
Resistance 2
Resistance 3
Resistance: Fall of Man
Uncharted series (very good games)
Valkyria Chronicles
White Knight Chronicles.

These are among the best PS3 exclusives, all of which I'd say are above passable. Not amazing, and not as overly hyped as Halo, but passable. Some games, like Uncharted/LBP/Heavy Rain/Disgea, make the system all the more worth while.

On top of their PSX classics...
Grandia
Legend of Mana
Metal Gear Solid
Final Fantasy 7-9
Castlevania Symphony of the Night...

I could go on and on about exclusives/retro classics. In the end I think it helps the PS3 be a better system all around. For the 360, I can name three exclusives off the top of my head I would like to play

Banjo and Kazooie- Nuts and Bolts
Alan Wake
That Conker remake or whatever, locked and reloaded..

BNuge :   Kinect isn't the first controller less motion control system... The eyetoy on PS2 is the EXACT same thing.  It's weird how Sony didn't have a firmer copyright.  I think they have some kind of PlayStation eye thing for the PS3, I'm not sure, I haven't looked into it since I bought an eyetoy and barely any companies developed any games for it, and I didn't think things would change.  I'm not sure how long kinect will last, there's only so many things you can do with a motion capture game before it becomes boring and unoriginal, but I hope they make some cool fun stuff.

Sony isn't the only company making commercials promoting the system.  Did you not see any of the Wii commercials where the two Japanese guys show up at people's houses and start playing Wii?  And the majority of game ads I see are capped off with the XBox logo thing... most of these games aren't even XBox exclusive, yet they either paid for the ad or paid enough to stick their logo on it.

PS3 does do better in Asia because it's Asian, just like XBox does better in America because it's American.  Americans have a lot more money to waste on leisure video game systems than the majority of the Asian population, as well as spending a lot more time at home sitting around.

PS3 does do better in Asia because it's Asian, just like XBox does better in America because it's American.  Americans have a lot more money to waste on leisure video game systems than the majority of the Asian population, as well as spending a lot more time at home sitting around.

BNuge : ps2 had controler less games.
BTowns : and i have the ps3 camera,the graphics are significantly better if you use it for video chat compared to the ps2 one.there are multiple games on the store that utilise this,i bought some to try it out.on one you need to punch these little alien things that appear and on another (this one is so much fun) you move around to move a platform to try and get a pinball to drop to the next platform,they have many intrecate levels with multiple platforms.its pretty addictive.
microsoft have no justification for the fee.sony didnt implement it because they knew people wouldnt be impressed if they too charged.they have ps+ which is a pay subscription and plenty people use that.id hardly call a console with around 100 million users desperate.
sony barely ever have adverts on.every new game out ends up having an xbox advert.i like how they usualy say something like "buy now and play on xbox live.only on xbox 360.yes the xbox live part,stop trying to insinuate the game is too.
the adverts for workout games were both lousy and a blatent wii rip off.
quite possibly true that ps3 sells in asia as sony is asian but what about europe?asia is a good distance away,as is america,neither should have an advantage if its merely about politics,so clearly there is strong support for sony,as shown by the poll.
most of my friends said if they had the money they woulda gone for ps3.
as for exclusives well legacy took care of that.however does it matter?i dont see why i should care about other people not getting the games,the fact is most games are better quality on the ps3.
funny bit in mgs4, "hey snake,its time to change disk,i know its a pain but we need to change disk,you see the disk marked disk 2?"
me ripping manual out of box in my search"oh great,im missing a disk..."
mgs4:"oh wait,were on the PS3 system huh?blue ray.duel layered too. the wonders of modern technology,what will they think of next?"
not on legacys list id add that gt5 is awesome,and i prefer haze to halo.
the only 3 360 ones i like:left for dead,that tom clancys rainbow siv vegas style game(forgot name)and gears of war looks ok.

I really don't think it should. There are some great games that are going to come out that I'm BETA testing. (I'm not aloud to say what they are.) For another thing I played Red Dead Redemption the other day and it was freaking awesomeness. Plus there are some great sequels coming for some now old classics. On top of that Sony makes enough money with everything else to keep the PS3 afloat even if it didn't pay for itself.

The system has its flaws, but why do you consider it dead, thread creator? It's still getting games for it.

That aside, I think they should stick with the console market for as long as they can still make consoles that are well made. The PS3 has many great games, even the 360 games that got ported to it run fine if you don't own a 360. The Blu-Ray player thing is silly, as it makes for a bad gaming medium. Films benefit from Blu-Ray, but few games benefit from it.

BNuge : it only just occured to me to do this. I checked up exclusives for BOTH consoles.ps3 has 187, the 360 has 210.given how much longer xbox has been out this completely destroys the argument that ps3 has no exclusives,that argument clearly has no basis.

With a powerful piece of hardware like the PS3, Sony can keep making improved games without having to drastically update their console. Scrapping the PS3 would be bad, as  Sony would be losing a powerful asset that would've stayed up-to-date for several more years. Plus, without the PS3 to rival the 360, Microsoft would be somewhat monopolistic in the U.S., and that could cause plenty of problems. Oh, and most importantly, I'm a huge PS3 fan and it'd tear my soul apart.

Sony is not going to stop. The PlayStation consoles are some of the best of all times with some of the most mature and interesting games ever made. The PS2 was more popular than the Xbox and only started to become less so even after the PS3 came out.
Xbox is about shooting games and nothing more. Gaming isn't only about being online. There are plenty of good single player games out there and many of those are on PlayStation.
The first system I ever bought was a PlayStation and I have never regretted being a Sony fan boy.
Single player gaming far outweighs multi-player and multi-player is all Xbox has going for it.

KlawedFlaw :   The blu ray thing isn't silly, and it isn't just movies that benefit from it.  Blu Ray is the next version after DVD, like how DVD was the next version after DVD.  Eventually computers will have blu ray disc readers.  Games do benefit from it, as there is more room on the disc, and as games improve in graphics and sound quality, the file size of the games will increase, and as such DVDs will eventually no longer be large enough to hold a game in a single disc.  For example, the game I'm playing right now, InFamous, is 7 gigs.  Most DVDs can only hold 4.7 gigs.  If it wasn't blu ray, this game would be stretched onto two discs, which makes it more expensive for the company to produce and more of a hassle for the gamer.  PlayStation games like Final Fantasy Seven have four discs, as they were on CDs, and then with the upgrade to PS2 huge RPGs like Final Fantasy got back to one disc, but then as games progressed, some games like Xenosaga were two discers, and thus the upgrade to Blu Ray has helped the disc meet the demands of the quality of the games.
