Well, I'm not really a PS holder, but I do own a PSP and a PS2. 

If you asked me that question when the PSN got hacked, I would say this. "Yes, they should give up."
Why? Because, c'mon, 77,000 people got their details hacked before they could get it back up... But now they upgraded their security defense, so it's all good. (I think.)
As with the blue-ray thing, I just have no idea. It sounds awesome, but it sounds desperate too. 

Meh, I'm neutral.

hackerman : Playstation is fine the way it is, no reason to not just change the number, but if they did I would happily welcome it. Also does that mean Nintendo should have stopped with the first Nintendo DS?

I hate people who see one problem (although a BIG one) which is now fixed and say "OMG SONY FAILS THEY SHOULD GIVE UP".

I think people should see that this problem makes Sony security stronger because they revised it.
I think Sony should do what they want , they been building game consoles for many years and now that a NETWORK problem happened some people are suggesting Sony to stop making consoles, a hardware thing ?

What has the world become to, people are not saying anything but the network failure during April and PRETEND that does not matter when it is the main inspiration for this thread .

I know because this thread is made after the network fails but nobody mentioned it, and in the last 3 years PS3 was on nobody cared much .


EDIT: Oh and if you are going to ask about some people losing their credit card numbers, that is a different issue, right now we are talking about Sony MAKING the consoles, they can make it all offline if they want although that won't make them much profits, now people are addicted and are only interested in having a fake social life...both (Facebook and on Multilayer video games).

UserMike : Well sort of that's a bit different because they added a lot more new features to it like camera and stuff when they get new ideas they do it like DSi so much more features and 3ds they got an idea to make 3d games so that had more better feature like the games and chat rooms but psp doesn't add super cool new features like psp go they made it smaller added a couple new things but instead of putting it into one thing like the ds did they made multiple psp's

No... They still have it...

Besides, the game industri needs competition...if one video game company rules the market, they would never need to improve the technology or make better quality games...and i don't see what's so wrong with ps3...
That's kinda like saying that microsoft should give up on xbox...

But both microsoft and sony are in denial when they say that the xbox 360 and ps3 still have half the life spand left. There's a huge gap between PC and console gaming in my meaning and the wii u is coming out, hey need something new (well microsoft has kinect and sony has ps vita...but still, the kinect does only attract the casual gamer and such...and ps vita is a portable...).

EDIT: Bnuge, about the game titles and what games are worth spending money on... Can't you still say that about xbox? It all depends on what games you like and what taste of games you have...
I do not care much for halo or gears of war... Pretty much prefer Ratchet and clank (which doesn't get nearly as much attention), Uncharted, The upcoming sly sequel and i hear alot of people liking god of war, metal gear solid 4, infamous and so on...

Although a big reason i bought ps3 was to see a new jak game! But Naughty dog scrapped it and made Uncharted which gets to much attention! Jak 2 was much better than Uncharted 2 (and rka0917 was heartbroken)...

But who really cares? If you like the console, have fun and if you don't then whatever...

Still hate Naughty dog for scrapping Jak! At least insomniac kept ratchet and clank and still started a new series...

I've been hearing a lot of people talk about Xbox360 and Xbox live but I've haven't heard much about the PS3 and Play Station Network.so alot of people might be getting tired of PS3 so I think Sony might have to give up on it.This is just in my opinion.

I own none of the current generation consoles currently, but I may down the line. If I was to choose one, the PS3 would be my top choice. Asides from many of the aforementioned factors, the PS3 got a library of games that appeals most to me, with fewer flops than the Wii in comparison to its good/decent games.

However, should they stop producing PS3s? Not yet, as it still got a lot of life left in it it developers are creative. The technology is fairly advanced, so it could probably hold up for a while longer. The same, to a degree, can go with Microsoft's XBox 360, as much as I dislike it. The wii however don't stand a chance to last much longer except perhaps to bide player sover until the WiiU. The bottom line is between bad third party support (which is what killed Atari near the end)  which is largely responsible for the extremely high number of games in its library being terrible and the lack of online support (though I prefers single player, a lot of people likes online) and little potential to work with technologically..

Clinging for life with a Blu-Ray player? I BEG to differ. PS3 dead? I'm sorry, but no. Just...no. First of all, the Blu-Ray player is put there because it's a Sony product and also because the games are powered by Blu-Ray, resulting in more storage space in the disks, thus having more content in the game. The PS3 is doing VERY good with sales and is FAR from running out of ideas for games. They just had an outage and they still hang in there with the PS3 and the awesome games for it. Uncharted, Ratchet & Clank, inFAMOUS, LittleBigPlanet, ModNation Racers, Heavy Rain, Disgaea, Motorstorm, Metal Gear Solid Peace Walker, Super Stardust, PAIN, Fat Princess, Flower, you name it! I enjoy playing Xbox when I get the opportunity, but I got rid of my Xbox because they have a weak amount of exclusives compared to PS, and you have to pay for the online. In fact, I think that Xbox is dying. As I said, the amount of exclusives is weak, meaning you can play almost any modern video game with a good PC and a PS3. I miss my Xbox because I used to play Gears of War, Fable, and Halo, and I would love to try Gears 3 at some point after release, but with the Kinect (which everyone has to admit is a gimmick) being a lame excuse to milk money from the casual market, I believe it's Microsoft that has to step their game up. As I said, I like all systems. I'm sorry, but without some sort of legitimate proof that the PS3 is even close to death, I'm going to consider this thread as pure Xbox fanboyism. I know it's a harsh assumption, but there are a lot of arrogant fanboys out there (even though you're not being arrogant) especially since PSN had the outage.

I honestly think that without the Ps3 Xbox 360 would have no competition. (Yes I know the Wii would still be there but....lets face it no completion) and when theres no competion Xbox would just spit out more and more generic FPSers

Random Fact related to game size
Did you know that some of the largest Wii games are only 7GBs?
And Wii play is only 0.9GB
(Yeah I know I'm a nerd  )
