Microsoft has done nothing but trash Sony at every step of the way and vice versa. This is nothing new, and is the same marketing tactics that a lot of western companies use. Instead of building your own market share, you attack your competitors. The problem with that strategy is that no company exists unscathed, and usually in dire financial straits, as has been seen with both Sony and Microsoft this generation.

"Microsoft has done nothing but trash Sony at every step of the way and vice versa. "

not "vice versa", viral marketing and paid journalism is a microsoft strategy, ugly, but it works for them (i hope people will stop encouraging company lies and trash talk)

knowyourstuff1198d ago

Ahem, I like Sony but "The next generation starts when we say it does" is a bit of a passive aggressive jab at Microsoft. I could name a few more, but I get it, Microsoft being a much more Western company has taken it to Sony at every step of the way in a much more aggressive manner, and it has definitely worked to snatch market share away from Sony.

Also, all the paid journalism rumours is just that, rumours. I know some "journalists" have absolutely no business calling themselves that, and are such fanboys that they absolutely cater themselves to one company/system more than another, I won't name names as you all probably have at least a few in your heads already, but Microsoft doesn't need to pay any journalist to do or say anything, they know they have insane fanboys who will troll the internet non stop for free.

I assumed that's what it meant (marketing), but I can see how people would think he meant sales or specs or something.

a_bro1199d ago

4 degrees, and he cant predict properly... DAMN SUN indeed...

Eddie201011199d ago

He did well in all but marketing, but everything he say's is nothing but market manipulation.

Pachter: I'll play dumb so i can get away with it.

SephirothX211199d ago

Yeah but marketing doesn't count because that's just bull.

hivycox1199d ago

..and he still sucks xD

Ranma11199d ago (Edited 1199d ago )

I just realised something.

Patchers comments are taken out of context as much as possible !!!

I dont know if it was just in this occasion, but i doubt it.

caseh1198d ago

They always have been, he says something then it gets posted here with an out of context title. Then everyone piles in saying how much BS Pachter speaks.

What you will NEVER see is someone posting an article where he has accurately predicted something. And contrary to popular belief if you look back over some of his predictions they are often accurate.

Hes been involved in the indusrty for years, he clearly does something right.

Pachter says "MS will trash Sony" so it's official.................Sony will trash MS.

Knight_Crawler1199d ago

What is the name of this world that you live in that makes you hate MS so much?

Do you wake in the morning and say to yourself "I have to honor my people and try to destroy MS"

princeofthabay1199d ago

You do realize it was a joke on account of Pachter always being wrong,right?

kingmushroom1199d ago

do you wake in the morning and say to yourself " I have to take jokes seriously"

TheRealSpy1199d ago

He, like most people on n4g, is a children. and that will never change. Perpetual children.

He's says something completely stupid...has more agrees than disagrees. You, point out a truth about n4g, you have more disagrees than agrees. That's the nature of the retarded beast.

kenshiro1001199d ago

...Why do you hate Sony? Answer that question?

And he was only joking. Pachter is a big joke anyway.

BIGBOSS081199d ago

Maybe it's not MS he dislikes but maybe the community that he dislikes, you know, the one's who calls everyone pro Sony or pro Nintendo fanboys and then claim that there not being fanboys.

Outside_ofthe_Box1199d ago

That isn't the case with StrongMan though. He definitely has something personal against MS.

But the people you described definitely exist.

Godmars2901199d ago

This is different from when they attacked based on:

Blu-ray/disc format?
HDMI?
Backwards Compatibility?

Once again obvious Pachter is obvious.

Talk is cheap, show us games Msoft or GTFO.

MS can run a smear campaign if they want but it will be the games in the end that will sway the vote of the gamers.

Sony has clearly highlighted the fact that gaming is the TOP priority with the PS4, if MS cannot match that promise I will be very disappointed.
