The title says it all, really. Before now I had only seen fanboyism confined to forum posts and blog comments. You wouldn’t really think that these people actually own blogs but it seems they do and, to make it worse, they own blogs with their own domain names.
Don’t get me wrong, I’ve been a Sony fan since the original PlayStation came out. I bought the PlayStation and the PlayStation 2 and loved both. It’s just when the PlayStation 3 came out that Sony went wrong. I’m sure I won’t need to tell you how, unless of course you’ve been living under a rock for the last year or so.
That said, I kind of still want a PS3. It’s just the £425 ($850) price point that’s keeping it out of my reach.
Now, I own an Xbox 360 so I’ve played the Bioshock demo. It’s an amazing game to be honest, amazing graphics, great voice acting. I honestly can’t think of a single bad thing about it. Plus, with literally all reviews giving it between 9.5/10 and 10/10 it’s becoming the highest rated game of all time.
Now imagine the hilarity when a review pops up on a site called Sony Defense Force giving it 5/10, you can only assume hilarity will ensue.
I won’t quote the entire review seeing as it’s only three paragraphs long, but this little section should give you an idea of just how much of a fanboy this person is.
[…] let this game cook in the oven just a little bit longer and wait for the superior PS3 version. Cleaned up textures, animations, AI, extra weapons, Home space, standard HDD and Blu-ray will make this flawed game into a perfect gem.
Seeing as this page was on the front page of digg earlier today and is probably still in the top 10, as I have come to expect from the digg community they’re left a multitude of hilarious comments. Such as…
Oh NOES! a 5/10, that ought drag Bioshocks metacritic rating of 99% to… oh wait… that’s right, Sony Defense Force is about as credible as Fox News.
Hey noob, how about reviewing the PC verion. Or are you afraid that the PC blows away your crappy PS3?
Madden on ps3 – 30 FPS.
Madden on 360 – 60 FPS.
Case closed fanboys.
