Why The PS4 Is For Stupid People And The Xbox One Loves The NSA

Who's winning the propaganda battle at this stage of the next-gen console war? (Culture, PS4, Xbox One)

Awh, I guess they see the world is buying up the PS4. Let me ask this then. Who were all these stupid buying up the XBox 360 back when it had a 50% fail rate?
Blacksand1  +   318d ago
I'm just saying it don't matter what console your getting both will have the same M-plat games. People get both for they can say their not fanboys but they are gamer's, because if it come on one its going to come on the other, people want to play first party games. X1 have games now but who say they want do like they did on 360, just make 3rd party games after the 15 first parties come out. Sony don't have a big launch but you know their first party games are coming next year.

Who cares, this is just a troll article looking for cheap hits. Some pseudo-intellectual writer is trying to seem smarter than he actually is by pointing out everyone else must be stupid. This is a man child akin to a 9 yr old boy who won't stop showing his penis.

Now put that away, techradar.

Sony had plenty of weaponry of its own to unleash, most notably the announcement of a clever trade-up scheme that'll let buyers of this year's PS3 mega-franchises like Battlefield 4, Call of Duty: Ghosts and Watch Dogs trade them for a digital-download PS4 copy for a "significantly discounted price" once the PS4 versions appear.

This led IGN commenter StealthPeasant to ask: "What about just waiting until these games launch and save $10? I really don't see the logic behind this other than profiting from stupid people."

Which makes perfect sense. You could wait until 2017 to buy a PS4 for half the price, then save yourself bucketloads more cash by picking up the games from car boot sales and charity shops for next to nothing.

Please read the article before you get angry.

The actual article doesn't explain why PS4 owners are stupid at all.... It mostly just insults the XBbox One.

Stupid attention grabbing headline. THe article was a waste of time and was just posted for clicks for advertising money.
SpecialSauce  +   318d ago
this article is very uninformative and, like its headline states, "stupid". the only reason this is even getting heat is the ridiculous title. and that thumbnail of the baby should be techradar's logo... ads up the @$$

wonder which one of those companies paid them to write this

seriously how this gets approved is beyond me

whether you get a ps4
or a xbox one

end goal is to enjoy the product

please let's stop this nonsense of daily bases bashing games or consoles, we are long way from release and its getting very tedious
pivotplease  +   318d ago
The article itself doesn't really contain any fanboyism. It's just a montage of what various fanboys are saying around the Internet and doesn't even go into enough depth to consider things like specs, next-gen exclusives, and the free games that come with ps plus that put a single free sports game to shame. The title here is flamebait for sure though.

Lol according to history
Xbox players are the stupid ones
They have either had to pay for online while the other services were free
Were ditched by MS from new exclusives in favor of a new console
Or just have had back to back sequels of the same game lol

redwin  +   318d ago
Lol, and yet we are not the angry gamers and we have the best online service because of the FIVE DOLLARS A MONTH. Lol, and obviously Sony agrees with that because you are going to pay for multiplayer too. Did you noticed that Sony's controller is bigger, I guess MS was right about that too, MS was right about the broadband connection, hard drive, Indy was our idea too. Xbox One is a next gen console, PS4 is just a hardware upgrade. But t will get them both in day one because I'm not an angry gamer and I want infamous. I will be playing them both this December .
KillerPigeon  +   318d ago
@redwin

I'd agree Sony observed the competition coming into this next gen, it's common logic to do so, lest you wish to trip and stumble.

Not quite sure how the hard drive was MS's idea.... infact I'm quite certain the PS3 was the one that allowed you to extract and insert a standard HDD.

Also 'indy was our idea too'. You started to blabber near the end there with this and the above, you choice of wording really does clearly put you fairly strongly in the MS camp. If you really want to play that game; indie was OUR idea (*Raises fist in tribute to PC gamers).

Both are next-gen, try and sugar-coat it all you want, but the only major difference that Xbox has going is that it's boxing a compulsory gimmick. Playstation Eye appears just as capable, and I agree it should be a persons choice on what pieces of hardware accessories they wish to buy. Perhaps this will see less use for the eye in the long-term, but that's hard to predict.

All in all, to run it down; Xbone is aiming to be the one device in your living room that you require (although I believe you still need a cable box). Whereas Sony seems to be going full-on pro-gamer, offering the most powerful machine in terms of raw power, and at the same time showing a strong emphasis on the integration of players through a strong social network.

Now that may not seem as amazing as the box that can do it all (I hope it can wash my dishes and feed my dog too). But then I'd point you towards the remote play feature, which is a pretty significant and smartly implemented feature.

Well I think that concludes my first post, been meaning to make an account for a while. Lets the games begin!

I think it's the other way around actually. If you don't buy a PS4, they yes that would be pretty stupid. More powerful console, best gaming controller ever as picked by 3 party devs and gamers. A $100 cheaper....

Exclusive game content from Unbisoft and Bungie.

Exclusive games from Sucker Punch, Naughty Dog, Santa Monica Studio, Guerrilla Games, Media Molecule, Polyphony Digital, Ready at Dawn Studios, Quantic Dream, Insomniac Games whenever games come out...

I don't think I have heard people call the PS4 as a console for stupid people but I have heard it as the indie box. That can be seen as negative PR. Same with the Xbox One loving NSA. (People that is what the article is about. PR wars)

"Sony had plenty of weaponry of its own to unleash, most notably the announcement of a clever trade-up scheme that'll let buyers of this year's PS3 mega-franchises like Battlefield 4, Call of Duty: Ghosts and Watch Dogs trade them for a digital-download PS4 copy for a "significantly discounted price" once the PS4 versions appear.

I thought this was for a limited time only. So no you can't do that. Also the IGN guy forgets not everyone will get a console day one and these games are releasing before the launch. Also, on Amazon, it is £35 for a PS3/360 COD Ghosts but £45 for the One/PS4. It is a form of negative PR but the logical (by the IGN guy) is stupid anyway

It is about bad public opinion/internet. The article isn't about how the PS4 is for stupid people or how the One loves the NSA. The article is about who has a better image amongst the internet with terms like NSA and stupid (I don't get the stupid one) being used, by people like us, in relation to these consoles

Instead of trying to prove the title of the article, the author just complains about a few comments found on Eurogamer, IGN, and The Telegraph (really?). Stuff about console minutiae. It's dumb. Three people do not a population make.

But they approve it so they do have responsibility. I don't need to discredit them because they already do a great job of that all by themselves. It's not my fault that they can't determine what is newsworthy.

@Belking

You're capable of reporting stuff you don't think should be approved here.

But of course, you don't. Probably because you don't get to complain if no articles get through for you to complain about.

Belkings mind: The Sony fanboys are everywhere. They are in N4G, Gamespot, IGN, the government, news papers, CNN everywhere. And their main goal is to bring down Microsoft. Everything thats negative about the XBOX One was invented by the Sony fanboys.

This is basicaly what i hear from this poster all the time.

XBOX fans using Sony fanboys as the cause of all their suffering is starting to get really old.

first of all PS4 is not for stupid people its for kids (indies) second all rumors about MS and NSA had been shut down since they said that the kinect is not mandatory
christrules0041  +   318d ago
Actually right now Sony has a good strategy. When Sony launched the PS3 at $600 it showed that gamers have a limited amount of money to blow. So the PS4 at $400, $50 for PS+ if they don't have it yet plus $60 for a game brings it up to $510. Then Indie games are good because people don't have to blow a full blown $60. It lets them save up for the next AAA exclusive.

Why do you think that Killzone: Shadowfall is at #13 in US pre order charts when not 1 of Microsofts exclusives break the top 40? There exclusives are literally eating each others sales up. http://www.vgchartz.com/pre...

Now as for the other part of Indie developers they are key in keeping the gaming business going. When a person gets out of school for programming they don't just jump into a big company like Ubisoft. Ubisoft can't train people like that because they have to keep working on the games. It already takes about 3 years to make a AAA game. The indie developers train people and then the indie developer either gets bigger or that person branches off and gets into a big company to make AAA games.

You have no idea how much it would slow down a company to train people instead of continuing to makes games.

Might I mention Naughty Dog was an indie developer.
trywizardo  +   318d ago
those games are called launch titles they isn't made for high sales they are made to make the console more popular and that what they done
and after the launch event the sequels will be a part and meant to become a high sellers
christrules0041  +   318d ago
No, launch titles are made to sell and not just popularity.

Why would developers make cross generation games? AC4 Black Flag, Battlefield 4, COD Ghosts and Watch Dogs just to name a few.

If developers where really trying just to make it popular they would release it just for next gen consoles. They have to sell games and that is why they are cross generation.

The xbox is what the "all in one" but yet you need a separete cable box to work on your xb1 yeah not really "all in one" if you ask me its ms whos dumb.

Yeah its either your stupid with the ps4 because of that upgrade fee thing or a sheep with the X1 because MS is in bed with the NSA. So much for professionalism in gaming journalism.
