even if the Forbes reporter tries to be fair, the fact still remains that others do get paid via add deals or are just hit baiting, sometimes they just give bad arguments or are strung along by bad sources.

also the reporters get things for free so don't have to consider the price and value of the product. like IGN comparing BF4 running on a $4000 PC to a $400 console.

thing is newmonday, you like many others on here are all other them blatant hit leeching flamebait blogs..

it is the fanboys that are the problem

NewMonday1667d ago

I call out BS when I see it and plenty of it is coming from MS, and I praise the good decisions and plenty of them are coming from Sony.

a fanboy is someone who rolled over for DRM and the SpyCam and swallows all fake PR like the "cloud" and over-hypes awful games.

tokugawa1667d ago (Edited 1667d ago )

lol there is a whole list of fanboy right there.

i would also list that a fanboy is obsessed with downplaying everything that is not part of their cult. constantly feeling the need to defend their bits of silicon and plastic. etc.

the list goes on and on. and your comment history speaks for itself.

like i said, it is useless complaining about the quality of the threads, when YOU are one of the reasons that this hit-leeching rubbish gets wrote.

look who's talking

why so full of rage?

notice how many times he uses the word "fanboy" almost in every comment

BkaY1667d ago

these articles are more flamebait than fans itself..

what happen to love for the games... everyone is talking about console war winning..

if you like what x1 has to offer ... buy that
if ps4 attract you more buy that.. pure and simple

If only it WERE that simple.

It's really not, though.

I like playing video games, regardless of console. So naturally the XB1 appeals to me. There will be games on it that I'll want to play, but will miss out on if I don't have one. But I don't trust Microsoft. I don't like their attitude in the industry, but my buying their console and games will send the message that I'm okay with what they're doing.

Goes without saying that I'm not okay with it.

So I won't buy the XB1. Not new, anyway. It's the type of thing that doesn't make it as simple as "Buy what you like."

I thought you said you were never buying a 360 because you didn't want to pay to play online. I am 100 percent certain that was the excuse you always used.

But I guess it had to change now that Sony is charging for their online too right?

Hicken1667d ago

You thought wrong. I'd never buy one new. And I still won't.

If you're gonna try and quote somebody, do so accurately.

I don't like- never have, NEVER agreed with it- paying to play online. Don't like online passes, even though Sony did it. I stressed for quite some time that the ONLY thing you were getting by paying for Live was cross-game chat. And there's no getting around it: that's not worth $60 a year.

Now, while I DO NOT LIKE PAYING FOR ONLINE PLAY, it's at least somewhat more acceptable that online is bundled with PS+ on the PS4.

Feel free to look through my comment history and see that I've said the same thing numerous times there, as well.

If XBLG can display that it'll have a similar level of value, then it'll be more acceptable. I still wouldn't like paying to play online, but it would soften the blow.

Oh, by the way, what do you think would have happened to online play had XBLG NOT been successful? Think Sony would be charging if Microsoft hadn't gotten away with it?

No, me, neither.

Of course you forget what you have said. And I really don't have time to actually scour through your hundreds of bs comments to find it. But you and I know very well that you have said you were "on the fence" but you would never pay to play online.

Of course now that Sony is doing it your whole tune changes. It's okay, it is very obvious and expected coming from a person like you that constantly talks loud then contradicts themselves when finds out his dedicated company is doing the same.

Now your very lame excuse is to actually blame MS for Sony charging for online. What does this say about your beloved company? That they're bleeding their customers because they know they can also get away with it as did MS?

"What if" Sony offered free online for the Ps4?

See we can play what if all day long Hicken.

Honestly. I've has every Playstation console so far except the PSP, and so I suppose I'm more of a Playstation guy. Buy I also had a 360, and it was a good console too.

I'll be getting a PS4 within the first few weeks of launch, and because XBone has some solid exclusives, about a year after release I'll probably buy one, when all the games actually start releasing.

jessupj1667d ago

Seems like Hicken is one of the few people here with actual standards and morals and will actively do something when he believes his beloved hobby is threatened.

If MS their way they would completely destroy gaming. This isn't opinion, this is fact. See DRM and no used games.

NatureOfLogic1667d ago

PS4 is better in every way, but if you like X1, get it. Less for a higher price is not my style.

SpecialSauce1667d ago (Edited 1667d ago )

This article, Forbes one of the most respected names in the gaming world just said,
*Xbox 1 best gaming console of all time*
My friends the Critics have spoken!

1OddWorld1667d ago

I thought it was funny.

JP13691667d ago (Edited 1667d ago )

Forbes is respected in finance, that is all. Their coverage of science and entertainment in particular demonstrates palpable levels of ignorance. That you support them is not a surprise to me.

"On the other hand, the PlayStation 4 is the greatest piece of video game machinery ever constructed and everyone should buy it."

Figured I'd point that out since you conveniently ignored it. You also forget which company has the best history of producing varied and exciting exclusives.
