Ghostbusters PS3 Vs 360 difference shown in screens [Update]

Thursday, 18 June 2009 07:35 GMT By Patrick Garratt


Digital Foundry’s Richard Leadbetter’s put the “rumours” to rest regarding the differences between the PS3 and 360 versions of Ghostbusters. The PS3 version’s resolution is far smaller, basically.

Here’s the PS3 game, and this one’s from the 360 version. The difference is a tad obvious.

Rich tells us the PS3 version runs at 960×540, while the 360 game hits 1280×720.

And that’s that.

Update: A Terminal Reality spokesperson told Joystiq yesterday: “For the record, the PS3 version [of Ghostbusters] is softer due to the ‘quincunx’ antialiasing filter and the fact we render at about 75% the resolution of the 360 version. So you cannot directly compare a screen shot of one to the other unless you scale them properly. The PS3 does have less available RAM than the 360 – but we managed to squeeze 3 out of 4 textures as full size on the PS3.”

  1. Gekidami

    Is a bit of blur the only difference then?

    #1 6 years ago
  2. Mike

    Yeah, a bit of blur is the only difference.

    The PS3 version looks like an Xbox 1 game.

    #2 6 years ago
  3. Eregol

    That difference is quite striking.
    Ys the PS3 one looks blurry.
    The 360 textures look like they have more depth to them, but they alwso look a little pixelated.
    To recreate the PS3 look on your 360, just smear vaseline over your eyes and voila!

    #3 6 years ago
  4. Robo_1

    It’s pretty shocking that they’re actually crying foul over these comparisons because the PS3 version is running at 75 percent of the 360 resolution, as if that in itself is perfectly acceptable.

    Little chance of Sony parachuting in some of their cell ninjas for a patch?

    #4 6 years ago
  5. Blerk

    That’s a really bizarre thing for them to say. I’m amazed they’ve commented at all, to be honest.

    #5 6 years ago
  6. Robo_1

    I’m also sure that Sony – as their publisher – will be thrilled that they’ve gone on record to say that 360 has more available ram than PS3, which even if technically correct, isn’t exactly something Sony will want to share with the world.

  7. Dannybuoy

    I prefer the softer PS3 graphics over the sharp as a sharp diamond edge sharp 360 version anyway.. so there

    Quincunx is so horrible I think the only time I’ve used it on the Nvidia cards I’ve owned was to see if it had ever got any better than being a vaseline filter. It hasn’t.

    It has such a bizarre name, too. It always sounds vaguely dirty.

    It didn’t, but it does now, cheers Blerk :D

    #10 6 years ago

    No wonder they could have put more stuff on screen on the PS3 version!

    They could just use sprites, and they’d be so blurry, you wouldn’t even be able to tell!

    #11 6 years ago
  12. SilentLoner

    I bet you £1 that there will be a patch for the PS3 version. I got the game yesterday and yes its blurry.

    #12 6 years ago
  13. DrDamn

    Fixing it would be quite a big thing – major engine change and full retest. It ain’t gonna happen.

    #13 6 years ago
  14. SilentLoner

    fair enough i thought it would just include an option to switch vasoline on or off or whatever the official AA filter is called.

    #14 6 years ago
  15. Lutz

    Silentloner: If they switched that off it really would look like a PS2 game. It’s current horizontal resolution is below SD in the UK. (576, over the US’s 480)

  16. SilentLoner

    Wow next gen my ass, Sony will be spitting shitballs from this!

    #16 6 years ago
  17. Shatner

    Hmm.. didn’t Bungie say much the same about Halo 3′s resolution? Wasn’t running at the full whack (despite the icons on the back of the box) which allowed them to employ more post-processing effects to the screen.

    Nobody seemed to care then. In fact, they were very very vocal in saying how you don’t play a game for its resolution or textures.

    S’funny how people’s views on the same topics change when it suits them. :)

    #17 6 years ago
  18. SilentLoner

    I have my PS3 set to 1080p and it is outputting at that but it just highlights the blurness :D

    I agree about the shatner comment though

    Halo 3 didn’t have a PS3 version that kicked its arse though, did it?

    #19 6 years ago
  20. SilentLoner

    lol true blerk, I do believe this is just lazyness in my opinion by the developers

    #20 6 years ago
  21. Axle

    Shatner, I don’t think that’s the point here. You’re talking about a first party release, whereas this is a comparison between two platforms, and, more pertinently, it’s the devloper saying that the resolution is higher on 360, whereas Bungie were saying it was merely aesthetics.

    Irrspective of this, I can’t imagine it makes a great deal of difference to those who play it, but I wonder if Terminal Reality are sore at Sony that the 360 version hasn’t had a release in Europe and are bigging it up in anticipation of a pre-Christmas release.

    #21 6 years ago
  22. Psychotext

    As I recall, a shitload of people cared about the Halo 3 / MGS4 sub HD resolution issues. Or at least, there were a ton of stories / posts on it.

    Probably Sore from being buggered by sony in the showers for Gimping their version :D

  24. Shatner

    Heh, here come the excuses. People that would condemn a platform exclusive title for any tecnhnial shortcomings are now the ones that would give the same thing a free pass on another platform.

    PT – Did anyone dredge up year old news in order to prance about on the internet a in a troll like fashion though. That’s the real question.

    MMmmmm. I love the smell of hypocrisy in the morning. Smells like victory!

    #24 6 years ago
  25. Psychotext

    @Shatner: Funnily enough, yes… they did. Specifically one talking about how all 360 games needed a minimum resolution of 720p to pass certification.

    Looks like sleep didn’t do you any good after last night’s insanity. I suggest more drastic measures, like anti-psychotics.

    #25 6 years ago

    Why would they be sore at Sony regarding the Euro release? Sony helped the situation caused by Atari.

    Do we know that for sure? Last time I checked nobody was giving any details about what exactly happened.

    #27 6 years ago
  28. Shatner

    Ah, but PT, to prove yourself right you’d need to do your dead-thread-necrophillia thing again. Which would make your own actions the subject of your own dismissals. You’d better hope that people believe what you say simply because you say it. And, given you fondness for making very grand but ultimately worthless trivial statements, I don’t hold much faith in your personal recollections of facts or maintaing perspective. After all, when it suits you, you can’t even recognise big, bold, blue colours staring out at you. Such a transparently selective level of comprehension you choose to employ. Bit of a catch-22 for you then.

    Better forget the issue and just immediately go into mocking the other guy instead – then imply that you’re only doing it because he made you and you’re not responsible for your own words. Ah, I see you’ve already started down that well-trodden road!

    How deliciously familiar. How’s that XDK reference coming along Mr. Expert?

    “Better forget the issue and just immediately go into mocking the other guy instead”

    Yeah. Thought so. Same old PT. Same old routine.

    Hi GIGA! How’s that PS3 price-cut coming along?

    Isn’t it funny how all the self-proclaimed experts on everything are always incapable of answering really simple questions and prefer to respond like trolls instead? I think it’s hilarious.

    #31 6 years ago
  32. Psychotext

    Was there a question in that rant somewhere? This thing? “How’s that XDK reference coming along Mr. Expert?”

    Because I don’t know what XDK reference you’re referring to.

    #32 6 years ago

    You can’t get sense out of this loony.

    I don’t know why people bother.

  34. dirigiblebill

    Take it outside, ladies.

    Both those screens seem acceptable to me, though the difference is noticeable.

    #34 6 years ago
  35. DrDamn

    It was the only sensible explanation given the other related news stories on Atari’s financial trouble and switching to US only operations.

    #35 6 years ago
  36. Shatner

    Not a rant PT, dear boy. Just a breakdown of your overly-familiar routine. Funny how you love to comment and mock other’s behaviour but seem to find anyone commenting on your own just some ambiguous ‘rant’ that you can wave your hand at. What’s that? Hypocrisy? Why, yes. That would be correct!

    And I know you don’t know what I’m referring to. Even though it’s about the same thing as asking a supposed motor-racing expert how many wheels are on a car and having them turn around and say they don’t know what the question refers to. :)

    Same question goes out for all and every other ‘expert’ – especially those that enforced their alleged expertise by never saying anything beyond disimssing somone else’s output. Don’t worry though, I bet Leadbetter doesn’t know the answer either and it doesn’t appear to have done his reputation as an expert too much harm.

    Heh, as for G1GA, the fact that he only ever comes to troll and is incapable of engaging his subject directly suggests that his remarks are actually self-referential.

    There’s thousands of reported cases where name-callers and bullies who try to enforce their views with threats of violence such as G1GA there, do so because of the treatment they themselves have recieved. The first step is admission of the problem. The longer they fight it, the worse it becomes.

    #36 6 years ago
  37. Psychotext

    Strange, I thought you started with the routine today…

    PT – Did anyone dredge up year old news in order to prance about on the internet a in a troll like fashion though. That’s the real question.

    MMmmmm. I love the smell of hypocrisy in the morning. Smells like victory!

    I didn’t notice any one else attacking individual posters prior to that point.

    #37 6 years ago
  38. OrphanageExplosion

    Halo is sub-HD so that Bungie could apply HDR lighting and fit the required dual framebuffers into the 10MB eDRAM on the 360. Regardless of this, the fact that it wasn’t proper 720p attracted a great deal of negative press at the time.

    Ghostbusters is doing nothing additional over the 360 version to warrant the downscaling in resolution and is nowhere near as ambitious as Halo in any way. The comparison is laughable.

    #38 6 years ago
  39. Blerk

    Can we see your proof of being an expert, Shat?

    #39 6 years ago

    Such are the lows of bipolar disorder.

    Then what does he do the very next day?

  41. Shatner

    Ah, another expert! I’ll even wager that they were involved in the development of both games so as to talk about them with such authority. Of course!

    The excuses are always made for one, the condemnations always made for the other. Asserted by bold statements but backed up by nothing better than second/third/fourth hand information.

    And PT, you don’t “notice” a lot of stuff when it suits you to. So, because of your habitual selective observations, I don’t hold any faith in your appreciation of things. I mentioned that before. But I guess you chose not to notice that too. :P

    #41 6 years ago
  42. Shatner

    Of course you can Blerk. I’d be happy to discuss my experience and skills in a professional environment. Which job role, specifically, is it that you’re offering me?

    GIGA: The first step is admitting you have a problem. We can’t help you until you start to help yourself.

    #42 6 years ago
  43. Psychotext

    So there’s no truth in what I said? You were not the first person in this thread to start throwing around attacks on individual posters?

    I can’t work out why my comment about the Halo 3 / MGS4 resolution issues annoyed you so.

    #43 6 years ago
  44. Shatner

    Did I say that PT? Or are you doing your patented “misquote the other guy then take him to task over the thing he didn’t say”?

    As for being annoyed. Heh, you wish!

    Still it’s awfully good to see how I can make an on-topic first comment and how many others leap in with their usual stunts and efforts to try to disallow someone from expressing their point of view! Good work kiddos!

    #44 6 years ago

    Aha! look a perfect example here…

    PT is clearly right, but the nutcase worms his way around the issue.

    Nothing is going to change here. I truly admire the optimism of people, but this guy is psycologically incapable of sound reason.

    #45 6 years ago
  46. Psychotext

    You said:

    And PT, you don’t “notice” a lot of stuff when it suits you to. So, because of your habitual selective observations, I don’t hold any faith in your appreciation of things.

    in response to:

    I didn’t notice any one else attacking individual posters prior to that point.

    No misquotes, just what you said. Were you, or were you not the first person to start attacking people in this thread? People avoiding questions clearly gives you cause for complaint, so why don’t you answer that one?

    I also said, far earlier, that you’d move further and further away from my original comment to focus more and more on attempting to mock and dismiss me.

    Why aren’t you fond of quoting the bits where I said you’d exhibit lots of predicatably poor behaviour and then quote more bits to show how right about you I was?

    What’s that? Selective comprehension? Selective quoting? Ignoring anything that won’t support your view? Why, yes. Yes that’s exactly what you’re doing!

    Well, I guess your next step is to pout a bit and call me evasive because I won’t ignore how you’ve overlooked things as you insist I must be wrong to be overlooking the points you’ve chosen to raise. None of which are about the topic. Or, I suppose, you can pretend you never cared and all the posts you’ve written were just examples of you not caring.

    As for G1GA, everyone know’s hes a troll. But, of course, because he beats the 360 drum nice and hard he gets a free pass. Such is the way of VG247. Why, look at the three highlighted stories at the top of the page. And look how the site carefully avoided writing a “forza bribe” article in spite of it being pointed out repeatedly.

    Lots of selective information being processed selectively around here. No wonder so many so-called ‘experts’ can’t answer simple questions and have to resort to trolling to keep their act from falling apart.

    Keep it up boys. You’re doing such an excellent job of it!

    Anyone else want to pitch in and use their right to express their point of view in order to try and prohibit someone else expressing theirs? Course you do! That’s what freedom of speech is all about!

    Impressive how a company actually bothers to admit the PS3′s technical failings when they’re not under Sony’s corporate thumb.

    I’ve always wondered why Sony nerf their consoles like this. They usually make extremely extravagant machines, but restrict the RAM horribly. This was also a problem with the PS2′s design, and its part of the very reason why most developers find the machine so difficult to develop for.

    #53 You’d think so pat. But it seems more people are for more into dismissing what one individual says than talking about the topic. They’ll even continue when he’s not there. ;)

    Shatner said:
    “Hmm.. didn’t Bungie say much the same about Halo 3’s resolution? Wasn’t running at the full whack (despite the icons on the back of the box) which allowed them to employ more post-processing effects to the screen.

    Nobody seemed to care then. In fact, they were very very vocal in saying how you don’t play a game for its resolution or textures.”

    IMO Halo 3 only looks nice when it’s rendering metal and technology, the jungle level in particular looked quite poor. But then I thought the jungle in Uncharted looked a bit poor :)

    Also Halol 3 was still in a higher resolution than the PS3 version of this game. You’d be better off comparing the two versions of Modern Warfare, where a competent dev managed to get both releases running pretty much identically.

    “S’funny how people’s views on the same topics change when it suits them. ”

    S’funny when people approach a topic from a deliberate angle to ‘prove’ a bias which isn’t there. As people have pointed out: multiformat, so a direct comparison CAN be made, plus the initial bollocks about their engine on PS3 running so much better. Then their, frankly, pitiful attempts to worm their way out of it.

    “Seeing as they’re being so open and forthcoming, could we ask them if they really did lead on PS3?”

    Just because the game looks worse on the PS3 doesn’t mean it wasn’t the lead format. Different games are coded entirely differently, so really, this was just a technical limitation they couldn’t work around.

    But hey, it’s the same game on either format, right? I’ll be picking up the PS3 version anyway, just so I won’t have to wait another 4 or 5 months to play it on my 360.

    #62 6 years ago
  63. Shatner

    #53 / #61 See what I mean pat? :D

    Oh, O’Connor. Watching you talk about how games are developed is always a joy. Your rampant bias combined with your utter obliviousness alongside your absolute determination that you’re the authority on the subject is truly, infinitely hilarious.

    Far more fun than playing on my Wii, for example.

  64. Blerk

    Well, that’s entirely possible, Michael. I was just curious to know if they really did do as they said or if at some point their priorities changed – like when they changed publisher, for instance.

  65. Mike

    Pat doesn’t see what you mean, no. No-one here sees what you mean. Christ.

    No-one is on your side. No-one gets your point. No-one understands why. No-one cares.

    I ready to be proved wrong on those statements of course but it’s a gamble I’m willing to take.

    #65 6 years ago
  66. Mike

    Anyway, any comparison with Halo 3 fails at the first hurdle as has been explained and of course, subsequently ignored several times in this thread.

    The PS3 version looks pretty poor and is only magnified by what Mark Randel claimed was the lead platform and how the 360 gimped the two versions.

    IMO, anyway.

    #66 6 years ago
  67. Tonka

    OMG, the PS3 really is shit, isn’t it?

    #67 6 years ago
  68. Shatner

    Mike, of course nobody sees what I mean. They’re so busy pointing the finger at someone else and making efforts to be obtuse, they’re incapable of understanding their own role in events. Just like you are. They all like to shit-stir and antagonise and then act like they’re just trying to be reasonable and it’s the other person’s fault. But, so long as they’re busy insisting it’s the other guy and insisting that they don’t understand what’s going on they can convince themselves they’re not responsible for any of it. Then they can make more troll posts and the process can start all over again.

    You actually know this and have admitted to it elsewhere. In spite of your practiced internet shrug and, right now, willingness to pretend you don’t really understand what the fuss is about. It’s funny watching people lie about their own behaviour and then act like they never lied – so long as everyone else is happy to lie about it too you’re all one big happy family of bullshitters. :)

    Still, pleading ignorance never struck me as a way of showing how you must be right about something. It just shows that you’re ignorant. Works for some, I guess.

    @Shatner: Re #49
    You’re doing such an excellent job of it!

    Actually Shatner, it is *you* who is doing an excellent job here!

    You came into an article that rightfully displays a PS3 game (not the console itself) in a bad light in comparison to its x360 counterpart, threw a runaway comment on how Halo 3 (!) is rendered in a sub-HD resolution yet people didn’t not seem to care (googling “halo 3 resolution” nets you with over one million pages – surely there are some people complaining on those), started shooting down ‘experts’ left right and center (while still not offering credentials of your expertise – you don’t *have to*, but it’s a bit hypocritical, don’t you think?), personally attacked Psychotext (you seem a bit obsessed with him, maybe you should look into it) and managed to steer the focus of this comments section away from the article itself…

    Well done man, congratulations!

    /tips hat…

    #69 6 years ago
  70. Blerk

    Your example was rubbish, though. You should’ve used Tomb Raider: Underworld, which was sub-HD on the 360 but not on the PS3. Or any of Grin’s latest games which all run better on the PS3 than on the 360.

    #70 6 years ago
  71. Shatner

    I’m not obsessed with anyone JonFE. If you read my comments properly before leaping in and trying to tell me who I am, you’d see that I treat all bullshitters, fakers, liars with equal disdain.

    Unlike many, many individuals on around here, I never discriminate and never ‘go after’ one individual simply because eveyone else does. I respond to what people say, not who they are.

    And you know what? That makes me far superior to most of you. Infintely so. :D

    #71 6 years ago
  72. Retroid

    But it’s more important to ‘point out the hypocrisy’ by comparing a multiformat title to an exclusive, rather than two multiformat titles!

    I’m an odd biscuit as I’ll buy a multiformat game on the format it’s better on (but not PC because my PC is shite). I’ve got a good few PS2 versions of games, for example, even though I had all three formats of the last generation.

    Yay! Mike drops his sham of pretending to be reasonable and goes straight for the internet jugular. My fault of course. As I’m responsible for everything that Mike says or lies about.

    Then, when the dust settles, Mike’ll do his “I’m a reasonable guy” act again and do that little internet shrug thing.

    It’s funny how folk like Mike want people to believe whatever act they happen to put on at the time. I also like the way he single-mindedly discriminates against people. That’s a mentality I can really, truly appreciate. Alongside with lying about things to score internet points. What a guy!

    Serious bizzness boys and girls. Don’t forget that!

  81. Mike

    I haven’t trolled anyone.

    Anyway, the Face Off says:

    “My response to that [Terminal Reality's statement to Joystiq] is pretty straightforward. First of all, PS3 Ghostbusters is rendering 518,400 pixels per frame. Xbox 360 is managing 921,600, so there’s some interesting mathematics going on in that statement. Secondly, if quincunx anti-aliasing is compromising your image quality to this degree, why not try another solution? With regards the RAM situation, it’s a well-known limitation that the vast majority of cross-platform developers have (thankfully) managed to overcome.

    The admission that 25 per cent of the texture work in Ghostbusters is compromised on PS3 is very telling. More than that, the notion that somehow we’re not allowed to compare the two versions without downscaling the higher resolution one is frankly astonishing. How many people out there have 540p displays? Perhaps we should we be sitting further away from the screen to make the two games look the same? Terminal Reality’s response, rather like the PS3 build itself, simply isn’t good enough.”

    It’s plain that you are keen on pointing out everyone’s comparitive inability to comprehend the nuances of videogame tech. It’s evident that there are some people here (Pat, G1GA et al) who annoy you to the point of apoplexy and I have rarely (although forgive me if I’m mistaken) seen you credit anyone on here with the aptitude to match your technical ability, argumentative nous, or flair for debate.

    It seems clear that you see yourself as superior to most, if mot all of the posters here. If that is the case why waste your time deigning to respond to the obvious flamers and trolls who are only here to upset you and make your life a misery?

    Axle, I’m sure you’ll find this hard to accept – but your understanding of my motives is far from accurate. I know, I know, how dare I express an opinion that doesn’t go along with someone elses. Especially on a topic such as ‘me’. Who do I think I am?!

    I could explain things but, well, I’ve done that before and it appears people are far more concerned with their own guesswork and make-believe fantasies or concocting complete falsehoods than acknowledging any pesky facts that might not fit in with their view.

    You’re still asserting that I’m feeling things I’m not. I’m sure you’re just another one that’s going to insist you’re right and I’m wrong.

  96. Shatner

    Let’s just say that, people like you, Hunam, set a precedent.

    Besides, when people attempt to authoratitively dictate to me who I am, what my motives are and what I’m feeling, there’s an assumed stance of ‘correctness’ being applied.

    But, good old Hunam, just like all the others, you’re only looking at the behaviour of one person as you rush to overlook the behaviour of everyone else. Including yourself.

    Such transparent discrimination! You should be proud. We’ve made SUCH progress in 2000 years! :D

  97. Dr.Ghettoblaster

    Let’s get one thing clear here people….this is NOT a PS3 performance issue, this is a developer issue (laziness, ignorance, this I do not know).

    Yes, it is true the PS3 is harder to develop for than X360, however I needn’t mentiont the long list of exceptional PS3 games that have identical X360 counterparts. Not to mention the outstanding work by Naughty Dog, Konami, and Capcom with the system.

    Again, this case comes down to the developer. Argue if you like, the proof is all the tripple AAA games that have already been developed on PS3, not this lazy shit approach.

    You can’t say on one hand that you’re it’s OK FOR YOU to believe that you are right and yet not afford your opponent the same courtesy as the circularity of your argument turns it into a tautology and therefore ultimately self-defeating.

    You’re right in that I can’t make a judgement on you, but I can make a judgement about your intentions based on your actions here. To me you seem to have tendencies towards narcissm masking a deep-seated angst about your own ability to function in a world other than one which priveleges anonyminity and ego-worship, as suggested by your auto-heroic website.

    However, I reiterate that I cannot judge you, but only your actions on an Internet message board.

    “To me you seem to have tendencies towards narcissm masking a deep-seated angst about your own ability to function in a world other than one which privileges anonyminity and ego-worship, as suggested by your auto-heroic website.”

    #101 6 years ago
  102. Shatner

    Where have I dictated to you why you say something, what your motives are and what you’re feeling?

    I haven’t. So, really, stop insinuating I have and stop trying to speak for someone who you know absolutely nothing about.

    Or continue – and, like every other reactionary fool on here, keep proving me right.

    And, as you can see Axle, I’m perfectly demonstrating how I don’t discriminate against a person. I respond only to what someone says, not who they are. There’s very very few people on this site that can argue the same thing. Even though, like O’Connor in #99 and #101 they’re so full of their own belief they can’t see what a mockery of themselves they make whenever they write something. But they all club together in one big amorphous blob of mob-rule and denial and consistently focus their energies on one person (that’d be discrimination, kids!) they never have to admit to themselves how they’re just as bad (and, thanks to discrimation, worse) than him they are.

    Deny deny deny deny deny fuel deny deny deny deny :D

    “And Hunam, even though you reference the point in your post, you still failed to understand that after trolling someone (and reasoning that, hey, it must be ok because everyone is doing it – classy thinking there!) exempts your reasonable attempts at posting of any worth. I already explained this once to you already but you’re just going to continue to bang your head against that wall and then argue that I’m unreasonable because I don’t respect people that just attack me out of the blue because that seems to be what the other sheep are doing.”

    As for comparisons, this is the bit none of you fakers and trolls ever understand. You’re are ALL so busy pointing the finger and laying the blame at me you always give yourselves the benefit of doubt. Your ‘reasonable’ way of always blaming someone else for your repeated trolls and attacks totally destroy any worth in your statements. You like to attack first and then, sometimes, try to reason afterwards.”

    “You’ve already decided you know what I’m doing, why I’m doing it, what’s motivating me etc etc.

    As for you Hunam. I told you before that after you go around trolling people you can’t possibly expect them to care for your efforts to make a reasonable statement. You acknowledged this twice. Yet, hours later, like an red-faced pouting infant, you’re still going on as if you’re a victim and have acted impeccably.

    What a beautifully entertaining stream of delusion this is to watch.

    Gotta keep pointing fingers at the same ONE guy and ignoring you own behaviour. Funny how ONE guy gets such a response from all of you PERFECT citizens isn’t it?

    Good to see Axle, newcomer that he is, has fallen right into the mob rule that all the rest of the blindly reactionary sheep live by.

    I’m sure Shyvah, the newly-signed-just-so-they-can-join-in-with-the-other-trolls has grammar checked ever other post and article on the site. Grammar Nazis care about grammar, not about who writes it. Right?

    Hunam, it should sound familiar: the text you quoted says “As I told you before..” in it. Seems like you’re too quick to react before you’ve even comprehended what you’re reacting to.

    And you topped it with a “Yay don’t read stuff” quote too. That’s like irony squared! Wonderful work.

    grown men justifying their purchase of console. its embarrassing. who in their right mind should give a shit if some blert on the internet thinks the xbox sucks or ps3 is awful, the game will play exactly the same on both systems yet that really doesnt seem relevant to anyone.

    i also find it funny the way a lot of people on these games forums go on about the power of these consoles, as if they have actually worked on them, had the chance to develop a full game on them. have you? show us proof.

    its seems a lot of people are hell bent on telling everyone how great they are and focused on proving it by yelling at everyone how the choice of system they made was the right one and everyone else is dumb. just get on playing games for fuck sake.

    Shyvah, you also missed the pretty fucking blatant irony in that post too. But then, so many people are busy ONLY seeing the parts they want to see.

    See, this is what I meant by you being a sex pest.

  131. Shatner

    Of course. Writing phrases on the internet is exactly the same as being a sex pest. Well, maybe.

    I assume you’re the expert on such matters as you speak about them with such authority. :P

    I really hope no one will buy this PS3 version bullshit. If they are not able to do a good version, better don’t sell it, but don’t insult users that already know what they could have done. SD, come on, that’s no even a bad conversion, is just a “we didn’t want to work so we just converse the PS2 version to be playable in PS3″.

    Not quite the expert that you are on the “I know you are but what am I” defence.

    #133 6 years ago
  134. Shatner

    Ah, I see you’re demonstrating your assumed expertise on who I am again Hunam. Guess you can’t help yourself making that same mistake over and over and over again.

    Keep it up though. I enjoy watching you make the same blunders. I’m really looking forward to the next time you try to be a reasonable commenter. Just so you know :)

  135. Hunam

    I’ve never going to be reasonable to you again, so nothing to worry about there. I just look forward to constantly quoting and pointing out all the contradictions you post, well, some of them, it’d be a full time job to find them all.

    #135 6 years ago
  136. Shatner

    Awww. I love it when people make pledges on the internet. They mean so much. I feel though that Hunam’s exhibiting a bit of emotional scarring though and letting it manifest itself as a cute little grudge.

    Serious bizzness!

    Can’t help yourself can you?

  140. Shatner

    Heh, oh Hunam, I’ll set ‘em up. You knock ‘em down. The cutest part is that you think you’re not being fed lines and are being especially smart in your observations :D

    You really don’t get it do you?

    Hey G1GA! How’s that PS3 price-cut coming along? :P

    #140 6 years ago
  141. G1GAHURTZ

    I reckon it was the friendless childhood that made him crack.

    Sounds to me like your actions are betraying your words shatner.

    #142 6 years ago
  143. Shatner

    Well, since you’ve stopped quoting and pointing the things out comments you’ve been fed, your remarks are just empty and worthless. Just a reactionary troll trolling around.

    Still, it makes a change from an unhinged loon making death-threats over the internet. Heh. 360 owners! I hear it’s the red-rings and all that violence that make them go mad.

    Oh, and careful Hunam, you didn’t use correct grammar in your post. Someone might want to pull you up on that. Assuming they’re not a discriminating troll. :D
