[ODDITIES] I Give up on Joystiq Commenters: how "personal" do you know me?


I've been biting my tongue on this issue for over a week (check out the timestamp on the comment), but remember my post about Sony's update to 3.7? Well, I linked to it in a Joystiq article on the same issue, and well, let's just say that the PS3 fans out there were camping out. Here's the meat and veg from that above comment, posted by "PR0F3TA" ("Hey, numbers-as-letters is still cool, right? They are? Dude, check out my new PSN handle."), or known as "PROPHETA" on the PSN:

"How can you make a statement (and pass it as fact) when you never personally gamed on a PS3?"

Yes, I'm ignoring the fact that he's called me a "fanboy" and he claims there's a "fanboy war" going on (that, and his lack of grammar; looks like somebody gave up on the ninth grade at the age of 17), but another claim I will stick to? The one where he asks me to "twist [his] words around to make [my]self seem right".

Oh, I shall.

I'm going with "how can you make a statement (and pass it as fact) when you don't personally know me?" I never once gave you any indication that I don't own or have "gamed" on a PS3. Mind you:


Oh, that? That little guy, next to the Xbox 360, sitting next to the Wii, all underneath my TV? Yea, that's called a PS3. A launch PS3 60 GB model. Yea, the one that can play my 50+ back catalog of PS2 games. Sure, I've got under 20 PS3 retail games, but with a library of close to 500 games, shit shan't be taken.

But, you know what? A picture wouldn't do, would it? I mean, he could think I have roommates, or siblings (which, the later I do, but he's 12; he has an Xbox), but since he personally knows me, he should already know this, amiright?

So, let's do the next best thing. Here's a gamer card with my PSN data:


Level 12, 8 Platinums and 631 Trophies. Considering I have less than 20 games (16 retail, to be exact, not counting the second copy of Uncharted 2, which I imported the special SteelBook edition from the UK), I have a 63% rate of completion (actually, thats much better than my rate for my 360, which is less than 50%).

Let's take a look at your profile, shall we?

You're at Level 8, 476 Trophies, with none of them being Platinum.

Not only do I have a PS3, I "game" more than you do.

Go eat a dick, dude.
