Are We Once Again Revisiting The 2007 Anti-Sony Campaign?

There's just no leaving the hate behind. Regardless of what the PlayStation brand may accomplish, the knee-jerk naysayers are always lurking... (Culture, Industry, Sony)

All platforms are receiving the same amount of hate. Sometimes some more than others due to bad business decisions.

Exactly; this "naysaying" isn't coming from nowhere. There are actual reasons for concern and/or criticism.

The only place in gaming where you will see any high level of denial about this is here on N4G... from my own experience.

Including Nintendo I'd agree. But I just don't see Microsoft bashing in the same way. Nintendo and Sony seem to catch the brunt if it. From the PS3 to Vita to the Wii to Wii U and at one time the 3DS, the 360 has slide by with its awful customer service, expensive price point for its tech, trickle of exclusives, less and less value of XBL Gold, ads overdose, Kinect kiddie/core cluster console it has evolved into .The most you get is a shitstorm when Kotaku dares to say PS+ is potentially better than XBL. Or the occasional MS Point or dashboard ad complaint. Only other negative 360 talk are Kinect game reviews. Other than that, nothing. Hell, even when the RROD was an every week occurrence for gamers, there were 3-4 stories max. This all from someone who joined Xbox Live when it was on the XBox and rocked Crimson Skies daily. I want the 360 to be as good as it was in 2006-2009.

Point is, the measurement of success and fail are different for Nintendo and Sony than they are for Microsoft. It's how I feel at least.

I believe so, yes. The media spin/hate of the super slim, couple with less exclusives this holiday have been all the fuel needed. For some reason, the PS3 and Sony seem to be criticized for everything under the sun. Some of the criticism is warranted (poor advertising and PR, for example), but the content is being ignored. It's the personification of Sony into some baby eating monster, when they're just Maurice trying to get us to have fun with all the other monsters under our beds.

I don't think it helped that sony fans were so freaking annoying and oppressive everywhere betweek 2008 to 2011.

Maybe now that they're chilling out things can get better.

Again? It's been going on and on from the start. Where was this guy during those 5 years???

Sony has enjoyed quite a few years of general positive vibes in the press. Certainly nothing compared to the bash-fest that was 2007. Only in 2012 are we starting to return to that, where you'll see a new "Sony is in trouble" headline every day.
