Some Idiot Talking Rubbish About PS3 In MSN Article

I'm talking about this article.

What an idiot. I'm going to go through a few bits of the article to show you just how much of an idiot this guy is.

"Not the Sony diehards that would buy a polished poo if it had the Sony logo on."

Is insulting the so called "diehards" a good way to gain credibility all of a sudden? Probably not. I can't believe this crap was in his opening paragraph. I'm surprised I didn't stop reading as soon as i read that.

"Shameful the way that beautiful little grey box was treated. And it died a death all because of Sony’s aggressive marketing campaign."

We all know the Dreamcast died and the PS2 didn't. Does this give you the right to blame Sony for so called "aggressive marketing"? Did this guy ever think that maybe Sega should have been as "aggressive"...

"Firstly, the 360 came out and is as close to perfect as you can get."

Blah blah blah...obviously this guy hasn't heard of the Xbox360 failure rate.

"Don’t get me wrong, I may be in the employ of Microsoft to write this column, but there is no way I’m taking dirty money."

Yeah...he should have kept his mouth shut and then I might think that he is just extremely misguided.

"I am allowed to say exactly what I want to about any console or game."

If he's going to keep getting hired and paid by Microsoft, then I'm sure he is.

"Oh no, I got mine free. And I have used it precisely once."

So using a console once can let you give a decent opinion of it? Biased, much...

"And what the sodding hell is Blu-ray all about? That’s not even how you spell blue. It should have an ‘e’ at the end, B-L-U-E! Not Blu. Pathetic."

There's something now wrong with a company trying to create a cool/trendy product name? Where the hell did "Xbox" come from?

"but are people really going to dump their old DVD players to watch something that is a) only slightly better quality and b) more expensive?"

I can't believe this guy is actually writing on a tech-based website. Everyone and their Dog knows that the difference between Blu-Ray/HD-DVD and standard DVD is huge. This guy must obviously be watching his HD media on a portable TV.

"I even got sent a free copy of Casino Royale when I registered my PS3 online, and I haven’t watched it out of protest."

Speaks for itself, really...

"I lost big time in the great Betamax/VHS wars of the early 80s...Oh the shame of going into the then new video libraries and having to shuffle into a corner to spend literally seconds browsing through the Beta titles that were half-filling one tiny shelf...And do you know what? It was Sony that got me a severe kicking on several occasions in school because I didn’t have VHS. For that reason, I shall certainly NOT be supporting another nancy boy, nonsense format that Sony have just made up in an attempt to look all clever and cool. No. Not again."

Haha, so this guy doesn't like Sony because he got made fun of in school? I think there is possibly other reasons why he got made fun of in school and it certainly isn't Sony.

"And don’t get me started on the online services. That’s a whole rant in itself. Suffice to say, one console offers a sublime, beautiful, wondrous, joyful online experience, while the other is guff. I’ll leave it to you to try and work out which is which."

Erm...did this guy not just say he has only used his PS3 once? So how the hell would he know?

"Look, I’m not saying I’m never going to play PS3 again, all I’m saying is it’s going to take something pretty special to get me to try and find the controllers and start up the thing. It will happen, I just don’t know when."

Good. I hope you never play it again. This will then save us all from having to play with such an idiotic person. Afterall, idiocy of this level is quite possibly contagious.

Lol your spewing as much bollocks as he is, if it had been completely favoring the PS3 it would of been fine. Its all opinion and anyone with half a brain can see that.

I admit, the 360 and PS3 BOTH have their own luring features. But what that review way saying about the PS3 was just a load of tripe. How can someone even think of writing a review when having only used it ONCE? What an idiot.

I hope he sees this page

dude this guy is a wash-up before he's 40 ex D-list celeb who once had a chance at a comedy show back at the start of the century. Albeit carried by a saucy co-presenter. The fact that he is writing crap about consoles speaks volumes. I imagine it will cash him up a a couple of lines of cheap coke to fuel his next unfunny tech-blog wankfest.

You have the ability to download psp games, no matter how old or new. They also make sure to give you the right software and detailed directions on how to download and transfer your games to PSP. I was really lucky I was able to find them.

I have been waging an enormous hate campaign against Iain Lee's appointment to write for MSN ever since they first published his column.

It began with the worst piece of journalism known to all mankind, and slowly he faded away into making absolutely no sense whatsoever. He has managed to defy the laws of common sense by writing 800 words and actually saying nothing.

My vocal arguments against him were even used for many weeks on the regular MSN T&G podcast.

Luckily he has seemed to have stopped writing for the past few months, so there is always hope that he will ever again disgrace our eyes with his crappy writing.

Having both a 360 & PS3 I have to say,like on of the other posters, that each console has it's own good and bad points, but that is the way it is.

To say that Blu-ray is almost the same as standard DVD, what a joke, obviously this guy still watches movies on video using a black & white tv from the 60's. This guy has no clue whatsoever about what he is saying, and to think he's writing on a tech column.

This guy is a complete IDIOT of the highest order, I can't believe that Microsoft even employed a moron like this!
