SEGA mocks SONY

The Video game industry is serious bussiness. Men in suits are in charge of a billion dollar market and what is their successful market strategy you ask?
It's all in the tongue. In an ingenious strategic move, Sega sent press analysts and retail stores a postcard offering condolensces with the following message "Our deepest condolences to Sony on their PS2 shipping difficulties."
Have a look at the image on the postcard, it is necessary so you get a clear understanding of the pain and sympathy Sega felt for Sony's problem.

The postcard also featured in Gameweek magazine and on a billboard truck which drove around San Francisco and lingered outside Sony's Metreon shopping center, home to the only Playstation store.

This just in, Sega's daddy is in fact stronger then Sony's and does drive a police car.

SEGA mocks SONY

Just to set the record straight...Consoles CAN outdo PCs at games. How? Because they ONLY DO GAMES! Everything is tightly integrated and specialized.Want proof? The PSX is a 200mhz system with 16mb RAM and a 2x cdrom and no hard-drive. Now try to find a PC with those specs that can do 1/4 of what a PSX does!

SEGA mocks SONY

My opinion on this subject is, the damn consoles will never be better than a PC, unless maybe they change the console into something else... The PC's get upgraded every 2 or 3 months, and will always be better... Now compare that to how often a console comes out, and how it runs and sh*t. Not good, cuz see, the PC would be twice if not more better than the console. Sure, they might add some cool stuff to the console, but the PC out does it w/ flying colors... But then again, what do i know?...

HAHAHAHHAH WHAT A JOKE LOL CONSOLES BLOW ASS!!!!!!

SEGA mocks SONY

You all suck. PSX has a 33MHz chip with 2MB RAM! The only reason it runs games is because it was designed to and because developers tweak their code to suit the consoles needs. Consoles suck ass. PSX and N64 graphics are 320x640 res! and PSX2 and DC are 640x480! HOW GAY! CONSOLES F**KING BLOW!! I'd like to see you plat Half-Life: Counterstrike on a PSX2 with a gay controler! hahahaha! consoles blow!

SEGA mocks SONY

I also forgot. X-BOX is going to kick ass. 150 million polygons per sec and a PIII-733MHz Processor with 64MB RAM! PSX2 only has a 300MHz with 32MB RAM and does only 25 million polygons per sec! how gay is PSX and PSX2?

SEGA mocks SONY

You pc guys are such fags!!! (I only speak to the guys who compare console to pc.) F*ck you guys a pc plays games real nice I know but a console isn't a pc so just drop it will ya

SEGA mocks SONY

Listen Shadolord, console's dont exist anymore, for all media purposes; there is no console. They have slowly assimilated into the PC hardware world and are becoming more like PC's (mimicing hardware, games, etc)...So to put it bluntly... f**k YOU!BAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!... haha...halaterz

SEGA mocks SONY

XBox will fall Flat on he's Face Sega is stumbeling and ready to fall any time this year Nintendo will live long cos of the market there after (little dudes who like cartoony games) and Sony will domunate thanks to there Perfect Market stratagyPS ...Sega is f**king with Sony But what they forget is that the thing Sony is doin here was Planed ...SAY WHAT!!!! yes ppl Sony Made ps2 shortege on perpus its part of there strategy just think about it this is all cos of the ppl who whanted a PS2 will even want it More cos of this ..and start to thalk about it to there friends so there friends get nosy about the console So Sega RIP and XBox for you i have only this to say ...You know that the clock is ringing but you can never tell the time :)

SEGA mocks SONY

the xbox is just microsofts way of continuing with their world wide domination. Sure the xbox will be big, but can we just sit here and let sony, sega and nintendo be beaten by the Microsoft giant? if that does happen prices of consoles will dramatically increase and knowing microsoft they will force advertisment in your face throughout the games. microsoft products are unstable and crash the majority of the time. basically we can expect the xbox to do the same. in my hate against microsoft and bill gates, i would like to say that anyone who buys an xbox will be despised by me... that is all.

SEGA mocks SONY

Hey deathstone do you trust X-box? its made by Microsoft has The big M ever made a good game Is windows a stable product Hmmmmm. The reality is windows sucks Because explorer is a piece of shit dont tell me youve never had a problem with it cause its a lie. Dont support Microsoft and its evil Pussy boxBill is gay and his products are too

"The clock is ticking"... Go to school, go get a brain, go f**ken shoot yourself or something...laterz

SEGA mocks SONY

Hey, if you want to know how bad the XBox ix gonna be compared to the PC, the guts of the XBox are gonna be pathetic compared to the newer, 2001 PCs. We are probally gonna be at 2.5-3GHz Procesors, 1GBRam, atleast 128MB 3d Accerators (I have a 64MB GEForce2 Ahnialator Ultra right now, that makes the PS2 look like an NES compared to my PC. Heck, I can run Q3A or HL:(Insert mod here), at atleast 1600x1200 resolution) and other things before Late 2001.Look, consoles will ALWAYS be inferior to PCs. A Console is for a poor person. Either that, or they just want to suffer with the bad res, bad graphics and the pure bad quality of consoles. Also, I laugh at the people who play games like Q3A and HL on consoles! First person shooters were MADE FOR PCs! They are basically crap on a consoles!More ranting later.

SEGA mocks SONY

Lol!!!! Yo SOMEGUY first of all dont steal my words dude ...the mom dropt you on the head one ....hehe i made that up ..so that proves i gave you a flame with that one and you think hey! lets get that dude back with he's own words ...no one will notice!...well i did you d**kSmack .. and about being stupid. look at youre post and read it over and over till you find out who is the stupid one around here ... it says nothing use full about the console's it dous say a lot about you but who gives a freakin f**k about youre pethetic little low end mind. come back when you have something to say with some info in it... or take youre medicene before you post si it will look like a post from a healthy jung man ...and not a post from a junky .. and dude do this for me plzSeek for sume profesional Help you need itPssorry for my englishim not from there :)

SEGA mocks SONY

Hell yeah you tell him smoke!the dude really is poor shitbut youre writin is bad dude and i saw that you exept that (same here) but dont make a big deal out of it i know what youre saying so who gives a Dingeling

SEGA mocks SONY

...and since most of you people it seems like have a sub 50 IQ (All non-console owners, you are intelligent and are members of MENSA, or some other thingamabob), here is what I say.PC is SUPERIOR to the CONSOLES (ALL of them)

SEGA mocks SONY

dudes this little old forum section is about Playstation2 so dont Punk around saying that pc is this and that so let me clear this all up so the PC thalk is about to be silent from here on .. Pc is Great but tell me this ... how come pc has no decent Driving game! and how come Pc has no Playeble Fighting game ? and how come pc only have advanture games who look like Daiblo (ugly as the mother f**ker) ill tell you why .. to rogram on a pc is so freaking easy that thay do this all sleeping and forget to implant AI so it looks like this > the cars move like Boxes on the road the fighter move like popets and the advantures well are like reading a book and nothing more then that so all you punks saying that pc is Top notch are totaly wrong and dont know squat about gaming. i use my PC for (INTERNET) Games only cos consoles dont handel that Yet (lol) the only game that is supirior than what ever console game is UNREAL TOURNAMENT the rest well are just plain old master system (nintendo 8 bit) games looking a bit nicer but with the same AI (arteficial inteligensPSsorry for the writing .. i suck writing english ..but who gives a f**k you all know what i whant to say

SEGA mocks SONY

Digital smoke, please, take an english course.But I get what you are saying. PC Programmers are idiots. Well, without PCs, you wouldnt even have a console! And a PC can slap around your lil consoles like a redheaded stepchild. And there are decent driving and fighting games for the PC (Well, not fighting like Tekken [CRAP] and Virtua Fighter, but some other ones) are hard to find. Like the Need For Speed series is pretty good. Plus how do you know realism for racing! Have you ever driven a Mustang (Not riden in one, but actaully drove one at racing speeds of 100km/h+)? Probally not.But PCs will always be better than consoles. Why? After 2 years, if we hate the guts of our machine, we can UPGRADE to make it better. Also, we can get better framerates (Consoles max out at 40FPS on atleast 90% of TV/Consoles/I forgot which one), Better internet, and also, we can speak english. But a major advantage is that with a PC you can do alot more than a Console. Example(s). Can you do word processing, CD Burning, or play Q3A or UT with more than 12 people on a console? NOT!And also, some PCs made by dell are pretty cheap to get now, so maybe instead of trying to get a PS2, just get a PC. A BleemPS2 will come out within 1-2 years. Also, another thing. Can you update a game with patches if the producers fogot to add something with a console? HECK NO!

SEGA mocks SONY

The PC shall kick all console arse soon.What I realy hate about console users is that when something gets ported from the PC to the console, they always say that the game is better on the console because of higher polygon counts. Well not shit sherlock, the PC version of the game was made before the port so it has to be better graphicly after the port.

SEGA mocks SONY

Who cares, dreamcast and sega both suck. I can't remember when the last good game came out for the dreamcast... hmm when I think about it, nothing good ever came out for the dreamcast.I am waiting to sell my dreamcast and buy a playstation2 ...

SEGA mocks SONY

ok, I LOVE consoles and they have most of the best games ever, but, i have to agree with the other guys about the pc. It is a hell of alot better.Hey Digitalsmoke, so what if the programers are lazy, they get the job done and the games are always worthy.And now, get back to the f**king topic about Sega and Sony.

SEGA mocks SONY

sorry Tpolice dude!i do not agree with you ...i do agree about the english course i should folow but inougue about thatPlaystation 2 will make the pc look like SHit thats been stept on but then again pc is upgradeble (like i did not know that)so the pc will grow bigger then the ps2 for 100% sureand for the internet tingy you just spoke about PS2 internet will be the same as the pc the game's will have patches the games are even downloadeblealso if you aint have inougue cash for the full game you have the ability to buy halve the game (no joke) also the plans for internet are WAY!!! bigger then the pc is doin now check this outthink of youre self of playing a RTS game (cant get up with the name) the game will go on 24-7 online but with you at work you cant know what hapens to youre troops ... but then youre sudenly atackt ...what ya gona do about it if ya dont know!..well listen up...the ps2 will call you on youre cellularsaying what troop is being atackt and all the info you need to know about the atack! so you can counter atack (or defend) by voice ... this proves that Console's are on top of all the little old gadgets thinkeble wile the pc will look at it and copy them ...that is going on the same with the games,,,DUDES I LOVE MY PC BUT DONT THALK SHIT ABOUT CONSOLES COS THERE GREAT!!!PSppl who thalk shit about consoles are just jaelus*^(& or what ever about the games that are on them or there price :))))) last post about pc for me ....

SEGA mocks SONY

You Stupid Motherf******, have you ever seen SHENMUE, that's real DC-Power.There a lot of good games on the marketlike HotD2 or RE: Code Veronica or BlueStinger. Remember you suckers you haven't seen anything yet....

SEGA mocks SONY

I think consoles are OK, but not internet on a TV! For gods sake! Am I gonna view text on a 20inch screen at 640x480 resolution!? Heck no!Also, cable for PS2 and DC are gonna be around $55 USD! I can get mine for $30/month on my PC! And thats in canadian!Also, most games play way better with a keyboard and mouse.

SEGA mocks SONY

What the hell Digitalsmoke!? "Ps2 will make pc look like shit"what the ****!pc will absolutely smash the ps2 and other consoleshow the hell could a console ever stay with a computer on power and graphics..i mean, you get like a server with 1gig ram, dual p4 1500 and stuff, GeForce 2 GTS = console dead on the groundafterall that, i really do like consoles though.fun to play ;)

SEGA mocks SONY

WELL I THINK SEGA MADE A BAD MOVE SO WOT SONY IS HAVING SHIPPING PROBLEM I WOULD WAIT TILL XMAS 2001 TO GET A PLAYSTATION 2 THAN DREAMTART REMEBER FAST AND EXCELLET GRAPHICS COME TO THOSE WHO WAIT SON FORM ALL SONY LOVERS SEGA SUCK MY C**K

SEGA mocks SONY

Yo, DigitalSmokedo you realize what you are saying?You are describing all of the ways in which comsole are becoming like PCs. (patches, download free games)That RTS game you talked about, that has been in planning for PC for a long time and it comes with a beeper that you are paged on (if it wer on your cell i know i would be annoyed - intterupted calls and can't turn off)Personally, i think this console conversion is a bad thing. The best thing about consoles it that the games (atleast the good ones) don't need to be patched and you don't have to wait for it to turn on, doesn't run slow... etcDon't get me wrong, I love my 700 MHz Thunderbird, i just hate patched games. If console developers have a way to put patches on their games (which would take memory card space wouldn't it?) then they would have no reason (except b/c they are just damned wonderful) to put out full games. How many games are there on the market today that run perfectly right out of the box?I mean Sierra On-Line has put out a beta of a patch!!!I think that downloading capabilities should be kept for PCs and console internet should be reserverd for multiplayer.

SEGA mocks SONY

SEGA DREAMCAST KICKS ASSPS2 IS GOING TO BE THE BIGGEST DISSAPOINTMENT, IN VIDEO GAMING HISTORYTHE DVD IS A PILE OF SHIT AND THE GAMES ARE ALREADY ON DREAMCAST, DOA2 ON DC RULES , 10X BETTER THAN PS2SO SONY CAN GO ANDSUCK MY C**K

SEGA mocks SONY

Just got Ps2 its good plays DvD's and stuff still gonna play pc games though.Digital c**k smoker go play need for speed 4 or any of that series PC drivers are awsome you just suck c**k for crack thats all there is to you.

SEGA mocks SONY

Everyone goes on about how the new consoles will make the PC look like a snail with its shell nailed down but the fact of the matter is that all the "Next Generation Technology!!" in consoles only throw polygons around in REALLY low resolutions. Has anyone ever tried running Unreal Tornament in 640x480, 32bit Full Detail on a 1GHz+ PC and you get about 110FPs (at least).Lets see your Playstation 2 run Unreal Tornament in 1280 x 1024 32bit Full detail at 60FPs then.Thought not, Nuff said.

SEGA mocks SONY

I think that this whole thing just goes to show thatthe dreamcast is better than the PS2. While all of the ps2freaks out there our still waiting on there system to shipI am at home playing my system at half the price with better games.

SEGA mocks SONY

PC and Consoles are 2 different things, 1 is for the strong, and the other is for the stupid....basically PC will always RULE consoles cause consoles are 100 years behind PC technology...consoles are for the stupid cause they pay 200 bucks or more plus games and s*** and all they can do is play, watch and listen to music cds....PCs and do all that and MUCH MUCH MUCH more

SEGA mocks SONY

I CAN'T BELIVE WHAT I JUST READ! DREAMCAST BETTER THEN SONY!?!?!? I CAN'T BELIVE SOMEONE WILL HAVE THE BALLZ TO SAY THAT. I'LL GIVE IT TO SEGA, SHEMUE IS NICE, BUT WAIT FOR MGS2. THE ONLY GOOD THING SEGA HAS GOING FOR THEM NOW IS CAPCOM, BUT WIAT DIDN'T I HEAR THAT RE:CODE VERONICA IS COMING TO PS2??? YES, ITS TURE, ITS TURE. IF YOU'VE BEEN LIVING UNDER A ROCK SOME WHERE, IF SEGA FAILS WITH THE DC, THEY ARE GONE. SONY WILL TAKE CARE OF THEM.

SEGA mocks SONY

hey TPolice, why don't you go smoke some more of your moms marijuana, cable for the PS2 and PC will be the same price weather or not you want it to be. All you need to do is hook the cable line that you have in your PC and put it in the PS2, ~ hey, ..that was hard to do =P.

SEGA mocks SONY

Check this out guys, for the statistics: Both p2 and DC is capable of the same quality ... the only advantage of the P2 is the "$h1tty" DVD player and that it is a newer Console, which means it is a little faster , BUT both of these consoles are 128 BIT / which quite frankly, the P2 can't go beyond that nor can the DC .. this makes the 2 consoles, almost equal, other than one is cheaper by more than half, and has over 48 more games than the other.. that would be the Dreamcast, I like my dreamcast and am not trying to buy a P2 anytime soon.

SEGA mocks SONY

Ok, All I have to say is one thing, NHL2001, I have a 600 mhz (ok, it's only 450 overclocked to 600) Pentium 3 with only a geforce2 mx. And Nhl 2001 looks about 500 times better than it does on playstation2 so whoever thought that ps2 was/does look better then a high quality pc was totally wrong, hell it can't even beat my "slow" 600!
