Sony won the PR war, but it lost the E3 battle

Ninemsn games writes: I spent quite some time playing PlayStation 4 and Xbox One games at E3, and I feel that when it comes to demonstrating each console's capabilities and power, Microsoft wins E3 hands down.

Sony, on the other hand, won the PR battle. Gamers have been fooled. (E3, PS4, Xbox One)

"Gamers have been fooled." Says the Xbox one supporter. Gamers have been "fooled" for enjoying their rights to trade their games, sell their games and play their games without being checked on every 24 hours./s

Exactly. Fooled is when they talk a out their games to mask the biggest drawback of the console.

It's ironic how the article writer is the one who's been fooled and he's writing an article attacking the people who can see through Microsoft's ploy with the Xbox One.

I think the only fool here is the person who wrote this article. Lol. I mean, are you serious Sir?

I mean, I understand if the author likes Xbox One better than PS4 but even the most hardcore MS and PC fanboys would agree that Sony will always have more exclusives.

I remember how so many titles were exclusive to Xbox eight years ago but it just died. The only major exclusive that MS had was the rinse-and-repeat formula of Halo, Gears, Forza.

I own both consoles (PS3 and Xbox 360) and I know which console gets most exclusive titles. You'd only have to be a fool to say otherwise or doubt Sony in this department.

MS will probably repeat history. Buy timed exclusive games (TITANFALL anyone?), try to woo the gamers and then it's all Kinect later down the road which wouldn't be bad only if Kinect games were worth playing.

I thought Microsoft easily had a better GAMES presentation than sony. The writer said afterward on the show floor there was a lot of buzz for X1 games. PR is one thing but I know X1 will do well because despite drm, the game sharing is cool but more importantly they have a great console and some awesome games coming.

I agree with the article

I have been saying all along, its about the games. Nothing else matters. I am glad to hear that people agree MS has the edge in terms of games. Reassuring that my faith is well placed... Not to say that I don't have plenty of faith in Sony.

Digital will offer its own benefits with regards to sharing/selling/buying. People are making a mountain out of a molehill... and the argument will fizzle over time. The future is digital, all arguments aside.

The way I see it, once people get their hands on it they won't be abel to stay away. Its going to be that good. Mark my words.

For me DR3 + Titanfall + BF4 + Watchdogs + KI = launch satisfaction

We talk about the restrictions more because..
Anyone that owns a PS1,PS2 or PS3 already know that Sony will deliver the exclusive games 110% which is why we don't need to worry about that topic...
And Like always, Sony will get nearly all of MS's 3rd party timed-exclusive games, plus more.
If you think anything coming from EA or activision would stay exclusive to one console, then you clearly are in denial and need to get smacked by a wegman's 14" sub with all the toppings!

DragonKnight  +   406d ago | Well said
Let's say for the sake of argument that this article is right, that MS had a better "games" presentation than Sony (complete B.S. but I digress).

Why do you think that is? I have an answer for you. It's not that Sony didn't have the games, it's not that Sony didn't want to show games. It's just another symptom of MS' previous screw up forcing Sony to focus on aspects they should never have had to focus on in the first place.

Sony made their stance about used games and DRM PERFECTLY CLEAR in February, but NOOOOO, Microsoft comes out with their B.S. restrictions and suddenly morons who own gaming news websites jump on Sony as though they were grouped together with Microsoft and absolutely HAD to answer what Microsoft did. It didn't matter that Sony provided the answer well before Microsoft's policies were announced, B.S. excuses like "they weren't clear" and "we have sources" started coming up. Everyone demanded Sony answer questions they already answered, and they had to do it at E3 or else no one would have been satisfied (they still weren't.)

Even now after Sony announced their policies people STILL think that the PS4 will have the same policies as the X1 thanks to the phrase "up to publishers." Sorry folks, publishers can only dictate how their game works, they can't dictate how the console works. Without the same hardware/software hooks in the PS4 that the X1 has, that kind of DRM simply won't work and the worst you MIGHT see is a lockout of online content until an authentication is made, but single player content can't be locked out.

Anyway, the point is that Microsoft's idiocy and the refusal of the fanboys and moronic "journalists" to accept Sony's answer from February meant that Sony had to devote time at their E3 press conference to discussing something that shouldn't have ever been an issue to begin with. Sony showed more overall games than Microsoft at their presser, they announced a higher number of in-development games than Microsoft, and unlike most of MS' games, Sony's games are of course multiplat, or straight out exclusive and not timed-exclusive.

Whether you think Sony or Microsoft had the better games event, there can be no argument that refutes the fact that Microsoft forced Sony to talk about things they shouldn't have needed to talk about instead of more games.

@JokesOnYou and malokevi,

You are both idiots. Simple as that. Only an idiot would say the things you said. Despite all the restrictions that MS is putting on you with the X1 and Sony showing you in the past years how much more exclusives they put out as opposed to MS you still try to spin things in MS's favour. Why do both of you insist to piss against the wind?? Both of you remind me of that old mole from Ice Age 2 where the young ones are trying to get it out of it's hole because he will die when the flood is coming but the old mole insits on staying and sais; "I was born in this hole and I will die in this hole."

Well keep insisting on your stupidity. Stay with MS and enjoy the 1-2 exclusives you might get each year while people who have a quarter of brain left and a basic understanding of consumer rights will choose the PS4 and enjoy 5-10exclusives a year esily.

It amazes me how insanely dumb some people are. I just hope that whoever these guys are, work for MS and it is their job to go on message boards and bullshit. Otherwise, they have a serious brain problem.

This article fails right from the headline and doesn't stop with the suck.

"Sony won the PR battle but lost E3"?

E3 IS a PR battle. That's kinda the point.

The nonsense continued on through to the "confidence in Microsoft hardware" part. I pretty sure that's the first time ever that statement has been uttered without the words "no" or "lack of" preceding the statement.

And the anti-Microsoft sentiment is unfair and just based on "poor communication" on Microsoft's part? Again, the author clearly shows how out of touch he is with the gaming world. While there was a fair amount of confusion leading into E3, Microsoft confirmed everyone's fears just prior to E3. That's why gamers are upset.

Vote down for this article and this site from me. Just nonsense.

"Gamers have been fooled." - really? The Xbone games were being played on a PC with a more powerful nvidia card than xbone has. Now who's been fooled?

@malokevi Just wondering if the digital era is a bit early for consoles atm. I mean I can't imagine downloading 25GB+ of data just for one game on xbone or ps4 and that is if your ISP allows such downloads.

It's all well saying how the digital age is going to be great and all but once you are exclusively downloading these AAA games at 25-50GB+ at a time you might just change your mind.
The ISPs aren't exactly moving forwards and letting their customers download unlimited GBs anytime soon.

Be careful what you wish for. It might come back to bite you in the ass :P

Logic.

You have it.

:D

About the story:

I don't see how multiplatform games constitute a "victory" only in that Microsoft made the public aware that they also have these games.

No offense to Microsoft fans, but the XboxOne lost on all possible fronts:

1. lack of exclusives
2. higher price
3. more restrictive platform (for both companies and consumers)
4. lack of technological gaming innovation (a great T.V. remote, though)
5. lack of proof/confidence of hardware functionality

There's more problems if you split hairs, but calling the "presentation" of games a victory is a moot point at best considering all they did was show great games that will be on both consoles.

Games? What games? Outside of Titan fall, Forza, and Dead rising, what games? Killer Instinct? The game is only 720p in a generation where games should all be 1080p. I am sorry but they did not have enough games to make me accept the bar of entry. Who let these people sound off? The sega dreamcast had great games and look what happen to that system. Bottom line, with all the bs they are doing, no matter how many games they buy up won't save that disgrace of a betamax box. I am not saying sony has the best line up in the world, but at least they care about gamers and that will solidify the system in the long run.
BozoLoco  +   406d ago
Well, the author did write a piece on privacy about Xbox One that attacked Microsoft directly, so I think their coverage generally has been balanced.
NatureOfLogic  +   406d ago | Well said
Balanced?

"All of this represents a growing anti-Xbox One sentiment that is unfair, even in the face of Sony subtly saying gamers now need to pay to play PlayStation 4 games online. Once one of the most appealing aspects of Sony's online service, free online gaming is now a thing of the past. Yet barely a word has been spoken, probably because Sony managed to so well smudgily attack its closest competitor with opposing features that had neither been confirmed nor denied for Xbox One. It was all just a product of Microsoft's miscommunication."

That's some deep denial and bias. They attempted to make PS+ seem like an major negative and failed to mention the benefits. They also failed to mention that PSN is still free to play with f2p games, messaging and sharing. All in a attempt to make their console of choice look good. Not balanced at all.

Because of MS, this is the first E3 where most people went in wondering about something other than the games, and even now, it seems the games mostly don't matter.

What's really funny is he says he saw both consoles goods'.

No the author hasn't. He's seen PC games and PS4 games.

Thus he is comparing a high end PC to PS4...so yes, PS4 doesn't look as good as those.

The key thing to remember is, how much worse will Xbox One look like compared to what you saw from the PS4? Because that is what will happen. How big a gap will it be between E3 and what the console struggles to put out? That will be his first comparison.

Xbox is clearly behind, and the rumor says about 6 months in game development, and nothing that we've seen goes against that assessment, even if it may not quite be like that.

Looks like their cloud service isn't going to be as good or as available to other regions. Not a big surprise.

Also what Microsoft did isn't a misdemeanor, it's felonious.

People do realize that here in America we got Nixon to resign before impeachment over something less significant to what a single Xbox One with Kinect 2 sensor does and will be exploited against its users.

I'd say my opinions are quite based off numerous facts that the author haven't caught. Thus he wishes to pause before allowing people to have conclusions, when if the person has been paying attention they know there is already quite enough information to make a legitimate determination.

lol true that. Didn't we just see the pictures of PC's in the Microsoft booths? I've always trusted in Playstation to bring the games, and they have never failed to do so. Every generation, PS delivers and not just at the beginning of the generation (like some others). Playstation has games to the very end and they support their consoles for longer than any other company. To deny this, or to fail to credit them for this, is to betray gaming.

But if I had to pick a "winner" at E3 it would be Ubisoft. They showed the most "next gen" looking games that are not rehashes with better graphics (Watchdogs, The Division!!) and they seem to be setting the bar for what next gen hardware will be capable of.

I just choose to have my pick of Ubisoft being played on the (better!!!) PS4 than the offerings from MS or Nintendo.

I understand
What he is saying by gamers have been fooled. He's referring to the controls and games he has played on display. Granted, some aspects of the PS4 don't concern me because I dont care about games being traded or loaned, but I do understand the seriousness when it comes to buying used games. I also feel that the $60 yearly fee for XBL is out of line. There's no reason for such a price hike. If you break down the the price of the system, they are virtually the same. Some gamers have been drinking the Kool Aid and are so invested in MS bashing that they don't really see the obvious. XBOX ONE is $100 more because it comes with Kinect. PS4 comes with NOTHING. If you add the PS4 eye, it would more than likely come close to the same price tag. I preordered my PS4 on Thursday because I enjoy Sony exclusives, but I don't really understand a lot of hate considering Sony was the first one to give the thumbs up on DRM. Of course they backed out of their plan at the last minute, but they were the forerunners 2 years ago. How quickly people forget.

It really is amazing how ignorant people can be. READ your USER AGREEMENT in any game you like. Your illuion of rights is based on misinformation. It is clearly stated in every user manual. I would like to think I own my $60 game and can do as I like, but the publishers state otherwise. The software we play is leased and comes on disc media. Digital content adheres to the actual "Rights" we have. Digital content is not traded, sold used, given to our friends to borrow, or even returned. It's amazing none of you knuckleheads that think you have "rights" with software have questioned why downloaded games aren't burnable. We pay for the experience, not the plastic.

Hitting disagree is easy. Taking the 30 seconds to read your user agreement is the first step to knowing what your "rights" actually are.

"The Forza Motorsport 5 demo I saw was very eloquent, almost poetic. As far as I'm concerned, Sony didn't delve quite as deep into demonstrating its games like Microsoft did. The Forza 5 demo made me want to elope with it. It looks outstanding, and is a far more appealing racing exclusive than Driveclub, although that is looking great on its own accord. Just remember it's a launch title being offered up for free to PlayStation Plus subscribers. Expect people to forget about it within 12 months of launch. Forza is maturing at an impeccable rate, and its frequency and improvement I feel are giving it the edge over Gran Turismo."

Are you hoping that Microsoft will beef up the specifications and make it more powerful than the PS4?

Neither of those two things will happen because if they were to redesign the hardware they would have to delay the launch of the system by a year or two. And thats something that Microsoft cant afford because Sony is launching their PS4 at the end of this year.

Killzone sells about as well as Forza, which you call a "proven" franchise, so, uh...

Oh, and Drive Club has a proven developer behind it, which is just as weighty as a proven franchise.

But no. Let's diminish the import/impact of the PS4 games to suit your argument, and NOT talk about how generic Ryse looked, or how Dead Rising will probably make its way to the competition's hardware like its predecessor. Yeah, DR1 never made it, but Mass Effect 1 did, when it was supposed to be exclusive.

@MariaHelFutura
The specs comparing likes are better, like ddr5 vs gddr5.
But things they never factor in in those spec charts is eSram and cloud computing. Too be fair I would say current cloud computing models. They also bnever factor in the fact that since the discs play from the hard drive it transfers faster than from disc. And if we just skip all the tech stuff the ONE showed games that looked better than what Ps4 had. At this point the Ps4 has to prove its power no free rides.

And it less expensive because out the box there is no video chat, voice command or gesture support and functon on the controller are non functional like recognizing player position and light bar Move functions. and thats just what it loses that it could have that the ONE has. The ONE also has more features on top of those that even a maxed out Ps4 doesnt. You can tell me you dont like them or want to use them but it doesnt matter because they are still functions and they are still there.

You xbone fans are so funny, do some research kid then come back and talk with the adults k

"And if we just skip all the tech stuff the ONE showed games that looked better than what Ps4 had" the only game that looked AS good as the ps4 games was that titan game or what ever it was called but we later found out it was running on a far more powerful pc than the consoles.MS games wont and cant look better than the ps4 games the cloud wont do sh!t and even if it can it wont be for years and years probably after the next gen is out,you need to get MS out of your mouth and wake up.

@MRMAgoo123
Good observation but I never specified Xbox 360s. I said market (since i would believe the ONE is being sold to more people than just the 360 owners of the last 8yrs).

The market consists of 360s Ps3s Pcs Ipads and any other devices that go on the web and and I feel pretty confident in saying at least 90% of products designed to go on the web are on the web.

Your other point is moot considering there are no final builds yet. So we have to compare what we see as it is given and if it changes we can give props to who ever shows to be truly better but as of now... what MS showed as there goals for final project out paced what Sony showed as its goals for its final projects.

And you expose your self with the cloud cant do $h!t but you dont explain why.... I know what the cloud is and what it can do. Just saying it wont do $h!t doesnt change that. Are you saying you cant offload console data processing to a server and use the save processing power to push more of the local functions..... if so you fail and that is all people are saying about the cloud computing.

Uh oh I guess its time for the shill bombardment.

@saint-seya
quickly more powerful only in theory comparing likes and not factoring other hardware and function like the cloud

Has inide support and will have idie support and quite frankly who give care about indie games at a console launch.

what it was running on is not clear specific and doesnt means the system cant reproduce.

box live has 300k servers backing it. It has been fast and powerful. Azure network ftw.

XBL has free ames, and removing the paywalls you speak of and has F2p games.

console wars are between console if you start talking PC Ps4 and ONE get crushed on most fronts. You cant just cherry pick what you want to debunk something if you use some you gotta use it all.

Also, the PS4 has a headset right out of the box as well. People don't need a gimmicky camera in order to talk with their friends. Thus the $100 less for a quality console. It does feel nice getting a BMW cheaper than the Ford with a shitty camera attached to it though.

I find it especially strange, that very little credit is being given to Sony for continuing to support their "Last-gen" system, ala PS3. I didn't see any mention of exclusives for the X360 or Wii, (well I guess we can't expect much of the latter) while the PS3 is still pumping out heavy-hitting titles later this year, possibly even past the launch of the PS4.

Beyond and GT6 could have easily been moved to the PS4, in an effort to persuade consumers to "make the jump" to next gen. And let's not forget The Last of Us which just released, and is almost unanimously being heralded as PS3's greatest exclusive; some going so far as calling in game of the generation.

As a PS3 owner, I'm grateful that Sony still sees potential in extending the portfolio of games for a system, even while it's successor is to technically replace it, in only a few months. I just thought I'd make this little point, after so many people criticized Sony for having a lackluster showing of games for E3 this year, and even some articles I remember reading last week going so far as to say "Someone should tell Sony this generation is over..."

Really, I honestly wish Nintendo and Microsoft had as much faith in their older consoles as much as Sony does.

A gaming console doesn't need an HDMI in port. All it does is add costs to the console. People need to stop being so lazy that they cant press 2 buttons on a remote to change the channel.

Edit: The HDMI in forces you also to have 2 devices turned on instead of just one because you need to have the device running that feeds into the Xbone and the Xbone itself. So waste of energy.

That's a great point. While MS had to bring the games for it's next gen console, Sony was charged with showing what it's next gen console could do AND also prove continued support for 3 consoles on the market. Sony attempted to appease ALL corners of the gaming market with it's E3 show. It showed further development in the exclusives that it revealed. It showed that PS Vita would have more games. It showed that PS3 is still a viable choice. It showed 8 indie games live on stage. Plus, to try to sway some of the Xbox fans, it showed some multiplats being played as well.

"Sony convinced us that the PS4 will be that box"

They didn't convince me....lol if I'm going to pay for online i'll just stick with MS dedicated servers. I can wait till 2014 for ps4 since that's when gaikai will supposedly be ready. But knowing sony it probably won't.

The article is spot on ps4 games dont have that pizzaz. Several writers from Neogaf thought the games were underwhelming.
Neogaf Reported that Drive Club is the worst racer of them all.

What if Sony has dedicated servers also? I mean MS will provide that through their Azure cloud, why couldn't Sony. After all when it comes to game engines, they'd be more prone to provide their online components in a similar fashion. Just wondering, not saying Sony will do that.

That's right MS does have dedicated servers with the X1.

http://t.co/uQkQlHSpl2

"Perhaps most intriguing, however, is that Xbox One gives game developers the ability to access Microsoft’s Azure cloud computing platform. That leads to a few obvious and immediate applications: All your downloaded and installed games and achievements are synced to the cloud and can be accessed and played without interruption on any Xbox One you sign in to; stable, dedicated servers for every multiplayer game rather than the notoriously fragile practice of hosting matches on one participant’s console; even multiplayer matches that can grow to 64, even 128 participants, rather than the usual limit of 16 or 32."

If that's the case then COD will have dedicated servers on X1. If Infinity Ward is smart, they would opt to this.

That point is giving the Xbox the benefit. If you are going to have it under your TV for the next 5 years, you'd want the one more built for the future. While amazing PR, the PS4 is a straight-up gaming system. What this site and everyone disagreeing with all of the pro-Xbox comments don't understand is that some of us do more than play games. I like to use my Xbox for more than just games, it's only obvious that I want to do more on my next Xbox.
GraveLord  +   405d ago
...and PS4 can't be used for more than games? Netflix/Hulu/VUDU/Amazon Instant Video/Redbox/Music Unlimited/Video Unlimited/etc/etc.

PS4 has every single app and service that PS3 has and it will only get more over time.

You are falling into the Microsoft PR spell. They are giving you tons of useless apps that you will never use. It's time to put on your thinking hat and ask yourself, how many of these apps and services will I really use? Will they not be available on the PS4?

Awe poor MS, why won`t those bad evil gamers stop bashing them? They are just misunderstood. /sarcasm

After playing The Last of Us I`m not sure MS can even beat the best PS3 games on their next console. And thats not because DRM and so on but because of the development studios MS has.

I do think that MS had a good show games wise, but they lack variety you got your shooters and you got Forza. In the meantime Sony still didn`t show what Naughty Dog or Santa Monica are doing.

Dead Rising 3 looked ok, Watch Dogs and inFamous looked a lot better in my opinion from every aspect. And being able to go and look for your tablet or smartphone while being surrounded by Zombies to call in a mortar attack isn`t a great feature.
Destrania  +   406d ago
I agree, nothing even comes close to comparing with The Last Of Us. Everybody who says they're a gamer needs to play that game. Can't wait for PS4.
AdrianHD  +   406d ago
Killer Instinct? Ryse? Project Spark? D3? LocoCycle?
NeoTribe  +   406d ago
All those games you just mentioned look like trash.
AdrianHD  +   406d ago
@NeoTribe Uh no. I know a ton of Playstation fans who are super excited for D3. I can't wait for Quantum Break. Saying those games look like trash just means you're close-minded :) I can't wait to play every platform's games!

This is a fantastic article. Paying attention to both conferences Sony basically had a reveal like Microsoft did on May 21st. They spent close to over an hour talking about games (they didn't show any new ones or first party titles), movies (They had the head of Sony movies on stage) and music. They showed mainly third party games which are multiplatform, along with mainly the games they showed off all the way back in February. We didn't see one game that showed off the so-called 50% more power that the Playstation 4 is supposed to have.

The fact that they are still supporting the Xbox 360 with games like "World Of Tanks", exclusives that will be on the system as well Xbox One. Microsoft showed more of commitment to games that I didn't expect. Especially when all we heard after the reveal on May 21st was that they needed to show games at E3. I say they delivered, regardless if we all don't agree with their policies.

I found it even more ironic that Microsoft opened the show with Metal Gear Solid 5, which looked absolutely gorgeous. Even a game like Infamous Second Son didn't capture gamer's attention like the exclusive TitanFall. Spark was unbelievable with it's potential for creator made content. We didn't see anything on or equal on that level from the PS4 titles. People are praising an HD remake of Kingdom Hearts. Really? It doesn't even matter if it's timed exclusive, because even if it is. The latest it will come to the PS4 will be late 2015 or early 2016. By that time there will certainly be more exclusives for both consoles.

So yes Sony has trounced Microsoft in terms of policy, used games plan, and PR. Yet, if we are talking strictly games, and who showed up to E3 with exclusive games, as well as third party games. Microsoft with Xbox One dominated across the board gaming wise. Which system people get is totally up to them.

We are talking about launch titles that have been developed based on the old specs of 4GB RAM so dont worry.

For how many years are people playing World of Tanks now on PC?

TitanFall is CoD with Mechs and the main reason why it got so much attention is because it's made by guys who worked on the best selling console games ever. And how many games shown at the MS conference are developed by them compared to just throwing money at publishers and devs?

KH3 is not a HD remake.

Sony has a lot of devs that didnt show their games yet like MM, Naughty Dog and Santa Monica.

MS mainly showed shooters ( after all they aim the console at the average american Joe) while Sony has a huge variety of games from shooters to racing, platforming, action and a huge amount of indie games and they still support the PS3 with 4 big games this year from their 1st party.
TheKingslayer  +   406d ago
I'm sorry Orange. As much as I respect your opinions. I can't let you make up your own facts. If E3 is about the games then every company has to show up with them in some form or fashion. You can't simply tell me about Sony's studios, them having great franchises, and they show up with none of these games they are capable of during E3. Then turn around and try to discount Microsoft showing up with games.

If you want to "try" and discount TitanFall that's up to you. We have never seen a game like it. It has essentially become one of the most talked about games around the world. Sony is also throwing money at developers and publishers. You can't get exclusive content from Activision on Destiny without forking up some money. You can't get an exclusive bundle for the PS3 with third party games for free. Sony is dipping into their money chest. How do you think they are getting exclusive content even from indies? They are making deals Orange.

Microsoft also didn't just show shooters. Forza is not a shooter, Spark is not a shooter, Quantum Break is not a shooter, Killer Instinct is not a shooter. They had variety, and again you add in some of the indie games they showed. I believe they showed off a variety of game genres.

king I think quantum break is a shooter but the idea is good either way. I'm getting ps4 but XBO does have the better games shown so far.

I'll take ryse over knack, I'll take titan/halo over killzone, I'll take forza over drive club. They haven't shown a fighting game and I can't comment on QB vs infamous yet

But MP games are expected to be better on ps4 and most my games will be those. AC4,WD,BF4,COD cant go wrong with those

CNN, MSNBC,BBC and various State side newspapers remind us that this was not/is not a "fanboy" issue.

You should really remove that word from you vocab as makes you sound like a 13 year old...unless..
oxcar1  +   406d ago
Doesn´t matter, i just don´t care about Microsoft or Xbox anymore, xkevmandc are you deaf, blind, stupid, drunk or something? The fact is simple: you buy it you own it. Plain & simple, plus console specs help a lot.
SpinalRemains  +   406d ago
well yeah. Renting saves thousands of dollars.

Smart gamers rent and experience all titles for ¼ of the cost, minimum.

You cannot do that. You wouldn't need to though anyway since you'll be playing cod ghosts for the next 13 months.

That's why I selected "WTF" and "No" for the link. Get this crap off of N4G. I don't mind differing viewpoints but I don't like them when they come from the company. Can we say biased?
