I definitely hate the way Live is.  The only thing they make easy is purchasing content.  Naturally.  As far as online game play, I never get lag on Sony, and I never pay for Sony.  Go figure.  Can't say the same for Live. 


I hate the point system for buying things.  Actually it was really smart of Live to do it because you are always left with points, which drives you to buy a few more to get something else.

Yeah, like buying tickets at a carnival. 

It's a ripoff with pretty lights.... like a carnival.

All this talk about 'I Hate Acheivements' is completly BS. If it wasnt for the acheivement system, some games that I have would of been collecting dust when I end them. I find myself still playing Tony Hawks American Wasteland just to find the last gap.
 
Acheivements was a great idea and Sony knows this. Its a way to sell more games for the console. For example, when Guitar Hero 2 came out for the PS2 and the other console,  I find myself waiting for the release of  GH2 for the 360 just because of acheivements (even though the 360 version was more expensive.
"If you look at our competitors, one machine has zero backwards compatibility and one only has it with a third of their games but our product will always be 100% backwards compatible."

Yeah...Mr. Tretton should probably double-check his facts before doing interviews in the future.

I really hope playstation 3 incorporates some sort of gamerpoints system that works as good or better than that big white box. It really is a huge selling point to have a gamertag matched with you game achievments because it identifies who you are as a gamer and also shows your accomplishments which will be there forever which is icing on the cake for hours and hours spent on games these days. Sony has to at least equal this system if not better it to really stay competitive. I own all consoles and this really keeps 90% of my gaming time occupied because I not only am enjoying the game but improving my gamertag score with every accomplishment.

So basically, Achievements are substitution for making a good, in-depth story. Point taken.

Yeah, I read something about that. Will the achievement type thing be available WITHOUT online? It'll be kinda the same with the other console by earning ahaievements on game and it will be on your profile. I wish this is possible because i wont have my PS3 connected to the internet in a LONG time, until i move out of the house.

I played and beat Final Fantasy 7 several times, and my only reason was cuz I wanted the full experience. I heard there were other ways of playing and enjoying it, and many hidden summon spells, etc. I know many that did the same. Same thing happened with all the Final Fantasy games, Metal Gear games, Resident Evil games, Mario games... basically every game that isn't on the "achievement" console... has good replay value without giving you lame objectives. "Play online 1,000,000 times and get 30 points!" That is the sorriest excuse for "adding replay value" I've ever heard in my life.

Why don't they hide contents? Add cool items and not tell anyone where they are? Things like that. That's replay value. Achievements are repetition.

Well all acheivments arent "play online a million times and get 30 pts.." thats just being hard on it...u explained why u didnt like it, but really, to some games, it does add replay value, not all games are quest games like what u named.
