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?

Blacksand11007d ago (Edited 1007d 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 let the BHb0ts out of the Xbushes?

Gaming1011007d ago

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.

Withdreday1007d ago

Yeah worst article ever. It reads like it was written by butthurt Xbox fans, and Guess what: IT WAS!

Silver3601007d ago

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.

KwietStorm1007d ago

I really don't think the promotion lasts nearly that long.

N4Flamers1006d ago

I really dont want to explain the whole post kwiet but silver was being sarcastic.

Outside_ofthe_Box1007d ago

Interesting that MariaHelFutura submitted this.

yeahokchief1007d ago

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.

SpecialSauce1007d ago (Edited 1007d 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

Enemy1007d ago

I don't think people realize this is a joke post.

"Xbox One loves NSA" = Microsoft is forwarding your information to them

showtimefolks1007d ago

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

pivotplease1007d 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.

Consoldtobots1007d ago

Dear baby Jesus,
When will you rid of us of these locusts from the abyss we call xbots? They have been a plight not only the industry we love but an assault on all known forms of human intelligence. So I ask you once again baby Jesus please send Chuck Norris to rid us of this mystery of stupidity.

Rockxy1007d ago

I tried giving the title the benefit of the doubt, but the article was just as doltish.

princejb1341007d ago

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

Pretty sure we'll get more than just multiplayer with those fees on PS4 dumb dumb.

Xsilvermist1007d ago

For an addicted gamer he doesnt know shit

redwin1007d 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 .

KillerPigeon1007d ago (Edited 1007d 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

Majin-vegeta1007d ago

So im stupid because im buying the best hardware a console is gonn offer at a cheaper price than spending more money to buy inferior hardware??well then by all means there are over a million stupid people already with me.
