Its NOT official- Sony sucks ass, plans to copy the Revmote (Ps2>Rev killer)

Quote:
Over at Razoric it?s a little bit ?he said, she said? on how Sony plans to combat the Nintendo?s Revolution, but it?s definitely worth mentioning. What the tipster, a guy who claims to work for Adobe/Macromedia, said is certainly interesting considering the strange leak earlier today. Today?s earlier news speculated that God of War 2 would release for the PS2 in Feb. 2007, this indicates Sony may plan to keep the PS2 alive and well instead of retiring it when PS3 arrives.

So with that in mind, here?s how Sony plans (according to this dude) to combat the Revolution: ?Got some PS2 info if you?re interested too. Sony intend to make it their ?Revolution Killer?. They?re working on tying in Eyetoy and some kind of controller similar to the Revolution controller. With a 100M+ userbase, tens of thousands of mature and documented dev kits and the very low cost of producing Rev style games on the PS2 platform they?re expecting to mobilise another 50M units over the next 5 years precipitated by a $99 price point in 2007.?

For now, it?s all rumors and little birds telling stories, so there?s not a whole lot of concrete information to build truth on.

But that doesn?t make it any less interesting, does it?

Thanks for the tip, J

sonyfans dont deserve sony revmote clone since all the hate they have given for the revmote since the announcement.


though this could still be a rumour.

Well I idea still sounds odd, if it's true you gotta hand it to them it's a good idea from a company point of view.

oh for F U C K S sake.

Another unsubstantiated rumour turns into a "Sony is worse than Hitler" thread.

Holy fucking whorechrist these threads are boring.

Why can't anyone talk about PS1 and PS2 GAMES in this forum without someone turning it into a "Sony is the devil" speech.

These boards have really been going down the s h i t t e r lately.

I just love the way that this thread is titled "Official" yet the post itself is a *rumour* and nothing more than a reason to bash Sony yet again.

Too bad EyeToy games are gimmicky. They lack the immersivness that will be offered by the Revmote.


Camera's don't make good games folks.

I'm with you Neph, not only is this forum always way behind on news but it's also full of Sony haters. That's why I moved to Gaming Age Forums and rarely post here unless I'm bored as hell.

Yeah, and I'm sure you've had hands-on experience. Fuck off.

These forums have always had a larger Nintendo fanbase then anything else. But the Sony side wasn't exactly as bad off as it is now. Most of the blame could probably be laid at the feet of Icarus's old PS2 bash thread and the resultant spinoff's it caused. His stubborness probably chased off a lot of the other Sony fans.
