Sony's trolling Microsoft again.. haha, this console wars is getting interesting

Maddens Raiders1106d ago (Edited 1106d ago )

I hope Sony doesn't troll the nextbox "too hard" though. We remember what they did to Toshiba.

Still, this will never touch the battles between Blu-ray and HD-DVD. Those days were hilarious and epic at the same time.

For those saying "stop with the console wars!!!", think about this... If there never was a competition between Sony and Microsoft you wouldn't get some of the great exclusives that we got this gen. Without competitive counterparts in this industry, there would be no incentive to create exclusive titles.

I say bring on the console war, and end the real wars.

WELCOME TO THE CONSOLE WARZ!!!!!

seriously though... good to see it's all in good fun.

Army_of_Darkness1106d ago

Hahaha! Luv this, Sony is not messing around next Gen. They are going full throttle on this Biatch!
Gets me very exited to see what the PS4 will offer :-D

Godmars2901106d ago (Edited 1106d ago )

@aCasualGamer:

There was no "war" between HD-DVD and Blu-ray, just a delaying action. More so because even though BR always had more space while MS supported HD-DVD, the 360 only indirectly supported the format where the PS3 was BR's flagship.

Really hope things don't get that convoluted this time around. Exist on their own merits rather than empty hype.

@Army_of_Darkness:

Just so long as there are no crying baby doll commercials, thank you very much.

kabala1106d ago (Edited 1106d ago )

I love this!!! Reminds me of the
days when Intellivision was trolling Atari. For those that don't know youtube Intellivision major league baseball commercial. Ah the good old days!

blackbeld1106d ago

PS4 is hitting the next xbox hard.

PS4 crushes xbox like a step on an ant.

PigPen1105d ago

Something that they can't do to Microsoft.

sjaakiejj1105d ago

Haha Maddens, thanks for making me laugh uncontrollably! Bubbles for that one.

indysurfn1105d ago

ummmm I kept saying if Microsoft requires online to play or start a game I'm out! Or if they blocked used games I'm out! Well looks like they will not require a online connection to play a game. BUT Acording to articles I've read they will block used games. Meaning I'm stock with what ever price they decide and there will be way less incentive for publishers to drop prices! Plus once I have bought a game I'm just renting it! Who will buy a game that requires a fee to activate? So my point is, is there room in the PS4 camp for me? And is there room for me in the wiiu camp for me to have a second console? (PS at the least with all they money m$ you should have made it better I hope you crash and burn!) Nintendo's stock should also go up!

Aghashie1105d ago

That was mean... but you make laught my @ss all over! Bubble for you.

Clearly this a response to MS claiming that no one in the UK would even know about the Playstation event or the PS4.

NeverEnding19891106d ago (Edited 1106d ago )

Lmao I'm loving the butthurt from SONY. This is the BIGGEST day of the year for gaming. Can't wait for N4G post reveal :D

Edit: One company is bantering, the other is whining. "Dunno much about flowers, but I'll have some blooming good news for you at about 6pm." hahaha

raWfodog1106d ago (Edited 1106d ago )

Obviously, both companies are just having friendly competive banter with each other but you got to turn it into some kind of lowest common denominator fanboy battle. So sad...

"Edit: It's only one company that's bantering haha :D"

Graeme Boyd works for Xbox so i think that qualifies as 'two' companies within that banter. It's all friendly though, for some.

cyberninja1106d ago

You are the only who's butthurt all the time.

Root1106d ago

I'm pretty sure Microsoft have done worser things

Someone posted something in another article about Microsofts Xbox "Love Boat" when the PS3 had it's launch party in France.

RyuCloudStrife1106d ago

I believe your the one butthurt LoL

raWfodog1106d ago

I'll say its ONE of the biggest days of the year for gaming. There are plenty of them to go around. I hope they do bring good news though as I plan on getting both consoles anyway.

windblowsagain1106d ago

Biggest day of the year for gaming?

ROFL.

I will watch the show, it's all fun.

You might get to see an avatars toe.

BAM

PSVita1106d ago

Can some call falcor to pick up neverending1989 and bring him to the real world. Greenpowerz might need a ride too.

TotalHitman1106d ago

You must be feeling pretty stupid right about now, after watching that live stream. That live stream was boring.

GrizzliS19871106d ago

i wonder how your tears taste right about now, oh mannnn

LakerGamerEnthusiast1106d ago

I guess you're right if you think the reveal is going to have a bigger impact than the Launch day itself.....

LOL nothing to look forward to then I see?

FlunkinMonkey1106d ago

ha wow.. and i just bet you thought the MS conference was amazing? haha, atrocious..

GenericNameHere1106d ago

THE BIGGEST day of the year for gaming? The BIGGEST?? So this is one of the effects of being an Xbot, huh? I think the release of the console would be bigger than the reveal of it...

NumOnePS3FanBoy1105d ago

It's quite sad the level of delusion that xbox gamers have to create in order to ease their pain

ShinMaster1105d ago (Edited 1105d ago )

Oh how foolish you sound in retrospective. Then again, you always seem delusional.

* Pay to play used/rented/borrowed games otherwise blocked.
* Still pay to play online and access features free elsewhere.
* No bundled headset.
* No backwards compatibility with 360 games.
* Online DRM checks every 24hrs.
* Mandatory installs.
* Always-on Kinect.
* Less focus on core gaming and more focus on TV, sports and entertainment apps.
* Only 5Gbs of RAM allotted for games, whereas PS4 has 8GBs all unified towards games.

And so it begins! *evil-grin*
Less than an hour to go. We "hopefully" will know more than.

-GametimeUK-1106d ago (Edited 1106d ago )

Nothing wrong with a little banter. Don't look too deep in to this.

TheTwelve1106d ago

Every industry that matters has good competition like this. =)

shutUpAndTakeMyMoney1106d ago (Edited 1106d ago )

This is what I like in the ps1 era!!!

TBONEJF1106d ago

I'm still curious bout the PRICE POINT on the PS4

GraveLord1106d ago

Just relevant advertising. You see it all the time with the Samsung Galaxy S4 coming up when you search for iPhone...

mcnablejr1106d ago

so far

we have seen no controller, no console, NOTHING new, apart from some cruddy controller pad thing and xbox has already announced 15 exclusives year one.

showtimefolks1105d ago

lmao it's like the school play ground

-Gespenst-1106d ago

This is less a war and just good natured ribbing. People should stop interpreting this stuff as "war".

greenpowerz1106d ago

Really? Sony is acting like a caged animal IMO Starting with that premature & strange PS4 reveal.

DoesUs1106d ago

You STILL keeping this vendetta up against Sony after all these years? Your emotional state must be hanging by a thread! So much hatred.

On topic:

Good friendly banter between two corporations.

Snookies121106d ago (Edited 1106d ago )

Dude, let your Sony hate go lol. Be at peace as a gamer and just enjoy games, not companies.

Also, Microsoft had that boat outside for Sony's reveal. So they're just taking small shots at each other. Both are doing it, it's not like it's "only" Sony or "only" Microsoft.

MasterCornholio1106d ago

Or Microsoft went into panic mode and delayed their reveal to today.

Seriously its all just rumors and we will never know the answer to most of them.

Pillsbury11106d ago

Go enjoy your cable box one and watch some nfl on smart glass, we will be playing games.

ziggurcat1105d ago

keep spinning that web, greenpowerz... you're sure doing a lot of damage control, now that the new xbox has proven itself to be a piece of garbage.
