It's all fine and dandy that none of you agree with me. If any of you actually had mothers or a quality upbringing of any kind, you may have heard the expression "If you don't have anything nice to say, keep your little mouth shut."
Have they told you "If you don't have anything correct to say, keep your mouth shut" or did you miss that lesson?
All you're doing is spouting unfounded opinions and ignoring all the counterpoints because you can't disprove them, and now you're playing the "YOU'RE ALL MEAN TO ME" card when people call you on your bullsh*t?
Get it? You may think an opinion invalid, but being a mean little sh*t in response isn't doing anybody any favours, and is in fact making you a worse person everytime you do it.
1) Your opinion -is- invalid and we've explained how. You've just ignored everything that disproves you insisting that you're right with nothing to support your wild claims but overreaching speculation.
You're trying to claim that the PS3 performs better than ANY PC under $2000 and when met with technical specs that disprove this, all you do is backpedal to "Well that depends on your definition of performance" and "I don't want to talk about technical specs, it's just BETTER, okay?!" The technical specs and financial specs disprove you and your only "proof" here is that you don't know sh*t about computers and can't make it work, ergo it works for no one.
The PS3 is a good gaming system, and it's better than a low end or mid end PC, but a mid-high or high end PC can outperform the PS3 for a grand or less. This is fact and has been explained in detail, detail which you choose to ignore because it's inconvenient to you.
You're trying to claim that FFXIV -will- (that's the key word: will, implying that it is a guaranteed outcome) have more box sales based on the notion that you are assuming that over ten times as many people who bought FFXI, EVER, for ANY console, are going to buy it for PS3. I should perhaps mention that whereas the PS3 has 50 million units worldwide, the PS2 had 150 million. Three times as many consoles and the console sales for FFXI were nowhere near what you're claiming XIV's will be, PLUS with FFXI, it was the first console it was released on and MMORPGs were in their infancy. In 2011, people know what they want in an MMORPG, they've heard the reviews, and you're not going to sell a PS3 copy to 20% of PS3 users worldwide. Your only argument here is that PS3 users have such a ***** for FF titles that more than twice the amount of people who bought FF13 will buy FF14 and continue to play it regardless of the game's quality, and that you also assert they're all living under a rock and haven't heard the terrible reviews.
FFXIV has a good chance of getting better over time. Subscriptions could, and probably will, increase into the hundred thousands if they put enough work into the game. That's a plausible concern. To claim that FFXIV will ever have a million players at once is highly unlikely based on the crash and burn launch and word of mouth from it. To claim that they will ever have ten million is a pipe dream. You just keep ignoring probabilities and statistics and keep insisting that this -is going to- happen with nothing to back it up at all.
That one I got from my mom. From my dad I got "You don't have to take sh*t from ANYbody in this world".
There's a difference between "taking sh*t from people" and "Listening to people try to explain to you why you are incorrect and perhaps considering such".
But hey, if a cop ever pulls you over for doing 75 in a 55, don't take sh*t from him either. Get out of the car and whoop his ***. That'll show him.
Seriously, stop screaming "lalalalala I can't hear you! My daddy says I'm always right about everything!" and try to understand what people are explaining to you.
You can see examples of both in this thread if you look really, really hard. I was nice until people started being mean. Maybe I should have just accepted the vastly superior opinions of the Computer Geeks who just had to pipe up and get internet tough, slink away and just hide? maybe next time.
If you can find any trace of meaness in my original post, then get off your period and go read it again, because it was quite light hearted to start, until I mentioned I think PS3 is better than PC, which unleashed a sh*tstorm of unholy impotent nerd rage. Yea, I think so, that just burns you up hey? I bet you've all talked to at least 3 people about it. "This guy on teh forums thinks Ps3 is better than PC! hhhhehehahahahah snort." Sooooo pathetic.
I never said there was any meanness in your OP. I said that people were trying nicely to explain why you were wrong, you became defensive and abrasive, we became offensive and abrasive, and all through it, you keep trying to explain how mean people are so terrible, when it seems like your definition of "mean" is "Not agreeing with everything I say" and "Showing me facts that explain how I'm wrong". If you said the earth was flat, would it be mean to show you a globe, too?
You think PS3 is better than PC and we have explained why it isn't. You had no counterargument other than to dismiss all contradictory facts and call everyone mean.
And then, YET AGAIN, you close your post, after talking about how mean -we- are, by saying
Take your hypocracy definition and shove it up your undoubtedly fat behind.
Again, be as mean as you want to be since we're being mean to you. Drop the "You guys are so mean" argument if you're going to do it though.
And let's level with each other: Have you really abandoned both of your arguments to the realm of "I'm right, you're wrong, I can't hear you! LALALALALALA!!!!" in lieu of being able to support them? Are you going to try to address any counterarguments provided to you or is this thread now just going to be
Us: You're an idiot
You: You're mean!
Us: Seriously, you're an idiot.
You: My mommy and daddy say I'm right about everything!
If it is, I'm cool with that cause I still get to +1 that way, I just wanted to know if we should expect any more ACTUAL discussion on the topic at hand that contains any semblance of logic from you or if this is now just a giant sh*tfest? Edited, Mar 13th 2011 2:42pm by Mikhalia
