PS3 Retards ...

"Short tempers, stampedes and guns marked the U.S. debut of the PlayStation 3. What would people do to get a PS3?

Two armed robbers approached a line of 20 people waiting outside a Wal-Mart store in Putnam, Connecticut. When Michael Penkala refused to give his money to the two gunmen, the assaulters shoot him. Luckily, Penkala is in stable condition.

Only 30 miles away, another buyer was robbed of his new PlayStation 3 just minutes after he bought it at a store in Manchester

AFP reports that on Wednesday police had to shut down a Wal-Mart store in the southern California city of Palmdale after a restless crowd of nearly 100 people turned rowdy.


CNN reports that in Allentown, Pennsylvania, a teenager was also robbed of his new PlayStation 3 by a man who tapped on his car window with a handgun and in Lexington, Kentucky, someone fired BB pellets from a passing vehicle at people waiting outside a Best Buy store.

The Associated Press got reports from police departments around the country informing similar situations; two people were arrested in Fresno, California, after a crowd trampled people in a parking lot. Two young men were assaulted in Sullivan, Indiana, by two teens after waiting for 36 hours at a Super Wal-Mart.

"They were unloading their PS3s from their car when two teens approached them carrying a chain and a tire iron and demanding their consoles", told Sullivan Police Chief David Story to AP.

We are starting to think that playing too much Grand Theft Auto games is really affecting PlayStation fanboys’ minds.

And you know what the worst thing is? That the PlayStation 3 is Not Worth the Hype."

If that's not enough, then click the link thats underlined

I don't think they should blame it on GTA, that's just ignorant. But anyways, that's what Sony gets for charging 600 dollars for that shitbox.

Also, the people that paid $2,000-$4000 on eBay for their PS3's could have waited 2 days, and now get them for less than $1200 on eBay

i was watching a review show on friday, and it was dedicated to PS3. I was kinda interested in what "Killer" games there were for the Ps3, so I watched. They reviewed 5 games. 2 of them got 1/5, one got 2/5. Madden got 3/5 because thats what they gave the xbox360 version and its the same thing. And Rise of Man Resistance got 5/5. Seems like the only good game... Not qorth it, too much hype I guess

How many of the 360 launch titles were any good, lets be honest! They're just finding their feet. Patience is a virtue my young friend

I'd say there were a good number of 360 games that impressed me...
But the games they reviewed were supposed to be Kiler apps..

I know I wont be getting a PS3 unless it goes down in price and theres one game that can convince me...(Gran Turismo (Not HD))

Oops, forgot about Call of Duty And Condemned I suppose.

Apart from that though, none have rated as highly as Resistance, not sure Call of Duty did either come to think of it. And in all honesty, how many of us would have played Amped and King Kong if it wasn't for achievement points

I actually quite enjoyed PGR3, Amped, Call of Duty 2 and Need For Speed. Perfect Dark wasnt that bad either (Unless you hyped it yourself)

There was a lot of fights surrounding the XBOX 360. People have beat up one another for an XBOX before. Why are you singling out a console just because you hate it?
And Time can shut it. I'll always go with someone who's more electronic based than "time". Click on this below if you want to see why CNET thinks it's worth it:

http://reviews.cnet.com/Sony_PlaySta...?tag=pdtl-list

Again it's just one mans opinion. But i'll agree that the PS3 is not worth it at this point in time. Plus, who ever keeps listing the $600 obviously is ignorant about the PS3 as a whole. It's not necessary to buy the 60GB package. The HDMI is included in the 499$ package. Only thing you miss out is built-in wifi and a multimedia card reader. If you honestly need Wifi and a multimedia reader, than pay the extra $100.00.
Unleast you can change your HDD with any laptop HDD whenever you want. For the 360, you have to go out and mod your way for a larger HDD because they only allow their own HDDs to work on it(which are created by Seagate I believe). Maybe not a huge advantage but it's a decent one.

Did you say the GTA thing? Or did they? Just curious. Because it's been on XBOX for years now, and is also coming to the 360.

Also, my mom was telling me about a time back in the 80s about when these dolls... Maybe Cabbage-Patch, were really popular. People were punching each other and fighting to get them for their kids for Christmas. Reminds me of that one scene in "Jingle all the Way". I didn't hear anything about PS3 like that in Canada, but I did hear on the news some girls were gonna sell their PS3 in a week on EBay for like 2 grand after they've played it.

Yeah. I hear at one of their shows they demo'd a game and all it did was load. It also takes like 3-10 minutes to load a DVD movie. That was what I heard about two weeks before release though. They might have been able to change that between then and release though.

I'll go read on some PS3 forums. I know they're having issues with backwards compatibility in Japan, and that's a big factor for me, because even though I'm keeping my old systems, I still don't like to have to change video cables.

Mmmm, what does ratings matter if no one liked them? How many people hate PDZ? I went on the 360 forum on Gamespot, almost everyone hates that game even though it was rated 9.0 (which many people disagreed with).
Again to understand resistances rating, you'll have to watch the video review to make sense of it. He makes the game sound a lot better than 8.6.
And only 3 games at launch for 360 scored higher than resistance. I think there's too much judging going on based on the launch. Since when does the launch titles determine the consoles future? Never really. The 360s was better indeed and they were smart about pumping out a lot of titles.

Didn't Sony announce at some point that they were going to sell some ridiculous amount of ps3's in like the first month? I think that they are insane because they have narrowed their market to middle class or higher, no average or lower class people like myself would be able to afford it.......pay the bills..or..Ps3? Hmmmmm.... Well I'm not a sony fan anyways so thats not the problem for me but what about potential customers who actually do want it. They need to consider that not everyone just has 600 dollars layin around.

Was I the only one to not understand how someone was shot because of a stupid console ? How pathetic are people getting: pulling out guns on eachother, driving by with pellet guns, physical attacks etc ... over a game system; and not just any console but the PS3 ! I mean, it'd b more understandable if people were acting that way to get the 360, but come on ! We're talking about a $700 CAD grill here

Dude, you don't have to buy the $650 CDN. You can go ahead and buy the $540 one. No one is forcing you to buy the more expensive one at all.
And how is it more understandable? You're such a fanboy.

"Two young men were assaulted in Sullivan, Indiana, by two teens after waiting for 36 hours at a Super Wal-Mart."

Wow, this is the town I live in, there are only about 6,000 people or less, the funny thing is we don't even have a super wal-mart!

this happens all the time. people are going to do this shit no matter what cause people are loosers and cant get things themselves. i know for sure if i went to wal-mart at midnight, i would A) not bring cash, B) bring other friends and not go alone C) bring my gun. what i think people should do that got assualted is sue the stores they were at. cause the stores should know things can get crazy and should protect themselves and provide security.

people rob others for shoes, these are no "fan boys" as stated. these are just your average thug trying to make some money the only way they know how, by crime. i'm pretty sure these people dont even own a TV, let alone be able to play a PS3.

Or they might just have kids. I'm not going to say that everything you will everything you will ever see on television is true, but you need to take parents into consideration; some of the things that happen TV shows actually happen in real life. I've watched the local morning news arounds christmas time, and heard about people who have mugged others, and I've even seen it happen in person. One morning (going for the early bird $h!t) in the isles at stores. Two moms with shopping carts were rushing through the toy section for their little kids. One of the 2 moms tryed to take something from the other ones cart, and they got into an all out brawl. I got my N64 game, and got the **** out of there. (Back in the '90s)

You do realize I was just joking ? As well, it would make sense that most members on this site would be fanboys, considering this site is dedicated to 360 ...

This just reminded me of something... I remember awhile back, maybe E3 05' Sony announced that their system would have by far the most paunch titles ever. They said something between the range of 80-120. I knew it was kinda bullshit, false promises, etc...

Just wondering if anyone else remembers?

I hate the PS3 people in my city. Of course all of them wanted to turn around and sell it and who could blame them?

But they caused so much trouble at my local Wal-Mart that the Wii waiting line had to stay outside all day (or 2 days) in the freezing cold, which sucked. They wouldn't even tell us how many Wii's they had!

But it's interesting how all PS3 people wanted to sell it, all Wii people wanted to play the Wii, and for 360 it was about half and half.

Just wondering if anyone else remembers?
You guys remember the boomerang controller ?? Smart designing; whenever you're pissed at the game, you throw the controller and it'll just come right back to you

I was designed so that when People played Ps3 for the first time, the people would spare the controller...and they could return it and get thier money back....

But when Sony Realized that people would get their moeny back, they quickly changed it back to normal...
