Fanboys Make The Gaming Community Look Like Scum on Toys ‘R’ Us Xbox One Video

FRONTBURNR: It’s a sad day for the video game community. Toys ‘R’ Us unveiled their “Fabulous 15″ list that goes over the hottest items of the upcoming holiday season. In order to help describe each product, there are YouTube videos that help explain each item and why they are going to be sought after. Unfortunately, incredibly toxic and immature members of the gaming community happened across the video and proceeded to mash the ‘thumbs down’ button and leave vile and racist comments on it.

The story is too old to be commented.

Playstation fanboys....oh yes because anything negative pointed at Microsoft with the Xbox One is just Playstation fanboys.

I'll think you'll find other gamers, me included have perfectly legit reasons why we would hate them and we aren't fanboys.

agentxk1018d ago (Edited 1018d ago )

Does that make it ok to go to on a retailer's video and post racist comments?

Edit: There are better ways to make a point about your preferred console. It's embarrassing for anyone that considers themselves a gamer that this happened.

-Foxtrot1018d ago (Edited 1018d ago )

No but I'm not them am I besides your trying to make it look like I said something like that or tried to imply it with my comment above when that simply isn't true

The point of this is that you shouldn't group together a bunch of people who hate something and call them all fanboys. If people say racist, homophobic, sexist stuff then thats them, they are immature arseholes but every single person isn't like that

It's the internet, immature and harsh comments are not uncommon no matter what the subject in question is.

Thatguy-3101018d ago

It's the Internet! Every video has comments that are racist and offensive. But no it's the PSFanboys smh

GraveLord1018d ago

This goes for both sides. There were racists, trolls and homophobes from both camps.

This is how it is on all Youtube videos. This isn't even news worthy. No one forces you to read comments, no one takes comments seriously....taking down this video only brought more attention to whatever it is they're trying to cover up.(My best guess, anti-Xbox mentality)

black0o1018d ago

MS did this they let a lot of ppl down and tried to F@#$ up everyone else by their old plans ''DRM..etc''

the youtube isnt sony's fanbase play ground so stop pointing at sony's fans every time MS/xbone gets thumbs down

just take a look at xbox videos on xbox channel u'll see most vid's has no comments section

and as for the @#$% comments that's youtube for u

JokesOnYou1018d ago (Edited 1018d ago )

As usual keep defending that type of crap, its good to be critical and its fine if you hate a particular companies policy or product but it says alot more about you when you act immaturely spewing disgusting negativity over and over again when the rational and most obvious course of action is for you to not buy the product AND more importantly buy the product you feel demonstrates what you value or want.

Yes this is without a doubt the extreme ps fans, a blind man can see that. Of course there are some extreme xbox fans but there has never been a large segment on this site who follow and attack ps, hell all those referencing back when thr ps3 launched conveniently forget at the overwhelming "that game sucks wait until ps3 launches it will cook you breakfast", lol in general there has always been light-hearted and even some annoying negativity on both sides but for what ever reason its a rabid and very hostile trend from ps fans on alot of sites comment section. Which is why like it or not they have built a reputation long before X1 as being the loudest most hateful group, sure their are plenty of very rational and mature ps fans unfortunately as has been witnessed all too often there is a significant portion of the ps community that have a hivemind mentality that strangely seems to enjoy attacking even more so than their support or enjoyment of their preferred brand.

monkey6021018d ago

Jokesonyou. This behaviour is childish and stupid no doubt about it but to believe playstation gamers have a rep? Ah now. As one of the longer members of n4g i figure youll remember a time when the ps3 was realeasing that this site was a hateful place in the comments section for anything playstation. I used this site over a year before i even signed up because the comments section were ugly. I dont even think its a certain group of fans its just a select group of morons now that are patriotic to a brand. Not some legion of sony empire

black0o1018d ago (Edited 1018d ago )

@joke take a look at comments here u'll find a lot of xbonefans
http://www.youtube.com/watc...

and here u'll see a lot of PSfans
http://www.youtube.com/watc...

it goes both ways but MS has made a lot of ppl angry ''x360 fans included''

BTW did u notice the views on both links that's the difference between the ps4 hype and x1

theBAWSE1018d ago (Edited 1018d ago )

@jokesonyou the holier than thou

shut the hell up

anyone on n4g from 2007 remembers this site flooded with more 360 fan boys than ever.. it was overun.. atleast the originals didn't try to hide it like you.. i remember gec ,pog , the mart, zhuk etc the true originals

as for the racist comments on toys r us website that is uncalled for in the grand scheme of things it's an electronic device calm down people we have banter but don't go to far

edit-if blu-ray wasn't better for gaming why has xbone now adopted it? jokesonyou your a blinded Fanboy who rarely talks sense

JokesOnYou1018d ago (Edited 1018d ago )

monkey602 have had this discussion quite a few times now Ive even challenge this myth with many many links so I can tell you for every negative ps thread headline there was just as many or more for 360 one this includes comments. btw If you remember correctly 360 was slammed alot at launch because the ps3 cell and bluray etc was thought to be so much better for gaming.

theBawse say whatever you like but just because we you hate hearing the truth doesnt mean I'll shut up....lol you aint my Bawse.

Dee_911018d ago (Edited 1018d ago )

JokesOnYou don't know the difference between shifting blame and defending...

edit:
I just want to point this out to the people that actually listen to this guy

SilentNegotiator1018d ago

Foxtrot didn't even remotely say that.

Does the marketing staff at Toys R Us REEEEEALLY not know how to disable comments? Really? They had to remove the entire video?

Wh15ky1018d ago

@jokesonyou

I'm sure you can cherry pick all the links you want but I regularly visited this site back then and all I can say is you have a very distorted memory.

ShinMaster1018d ago

Have none of you ever been on YouTube before?

There is some insane stuff coming out of Xbox fanboy's mouths no better than what PS fanboys say.

Majin-vegeta1018d ago

I'm sorry but can you prove it was a Sony fanboy?*Gasp*Oh exactly you can't so STFU amd stop trying to blame this on the Sony camp for hell all we know it could have been a nintendo,PC,fanboy or disgruntled xbox 360 owner or just someone who trolls for the hell of it.

ONCE AGAIN SHOW ME PROOF IT WAS A SONY FANBOY??
http://youtu.be/cJX1REQB12o

4Sh0w1018d ago (Edited 1018d ago )

Anyone who says sonyfanboys are not the most notorius haters on the internet in the gaming community is delusional. Yeah ALL fanboys are bad but I never been a member of any other game site I thought I was pretty open minded about both sides at first and this site has proven to me that the the sonfanboys are the worst I almost want to distance myself from ps fans, sometimes I got to remind myself its not sonys fault either because not only are sonyfanboys the most hypocritical of them all but they actually hate more on microsoft than they do supporting what they actually like about ps4. Look around more often than not there will be fresh positive ps4 news but yet there are triple the comments on a negative headlined X1 news.

Majin veta just like most fanboys you and your entire comment history proves you dont know the difference between valid criticism vs talking pure fanboy garbage. Everybody even normal sony fans know it's sonybfanboys acting ridiculous in this case.

webeblazing1018d ago

Back then this site was flood wit Xbox fanboys they acted like how PS fanboys act today it more fun n lite hearted because of the open zone I miss that. I think a lot of people because there is no open zone now everyone trash the console they not loyal 4 everyone to see. Site definitely went downhill

BallsEye1018d ago

@dboyc310

no not the internet, it's about america. I visit plenty of forums in different languages from different parts of the world. People can actually discuss there about consoles and other things without offending each other. On most gaming forums where majority of users are americans it's always "my sh!t is better than yours if you don't agree then gtfo". Not to mention how easily americans are fooled by PR talk or anything their gov throws at them. Now I hate generalizing, I got some american friends that I just love, but you gotta admit yourself, too many of you can't fkin live together and don't respect each other at all.

The_Con-Sept1018d ago

You won't find my screen name on the comment page of that video at all. And I am all about PlayStation. We are now the most infamous fan base to all. It just means Xbox fans have finally caved in. I keep the flamebait on the right vids. Not those vids.

So who did it? Not just other PlayStation fans BUT EVERYONE.

nukeitall1018d ago

jokesonyou is completely right, it speaks volume of a person when you spew racist comments and crap down a console because you don't like it.

If you don't like it, don't buy it and explain your reason.

Don't spew racist and offensive comments!

That is being immature, and anyone that defends that are simply idiots!

SegaSaturn6691018d ago

They took the video down! How fair is that?

I didnt even get the chance to post a racist comment! I need to choose a race to degrade next time so I can manage to comment in time.

P0werVR1018d ago

Hey! It's simple, Sony "fanboys" are the WORST gamers ALIVE.

I mean just read these posts alone, and you'll see the disgusting a volatile nature ooze as they try so hard to defend their likeness.

Of course Xbox faboys are bad, but at least they act like fan-boys...like kids. Sony fanboys are...I don't know what the hell they are, but they act like a bunch of creeps. Like it's their mission to destroy anything Xbox. Very insecure.

dale_denton1018d ago

welcome to the real world.

dantesparda1018d ago (Edited 1018d ago )

Blah, blah, blah, Sony fanboys are so bad,... Sony fanboys are the worst, waah waahh, waaahhh, we MS fanboys are so much better than that. We are so much more mature than the Sony fanboys, blah, blah, blah.

MS fanboys are even more delusional than Sony fanboys, congratulations guys, that's a great (pun intended) achievement.

Now continue now being hypocrits guys and proving my point. Too-da-loo!

rainslacker1018d ago

I think what Fox is trying to get at is that if you just lump everyone into the category of fan boy, it does dismiss the valid arguments that people are trying to make. In the other article that reported the Toy's R' Us video being taken down, it's like no one that likes the X1 can admit that there are people pissed off at MS unless they are a Sony fan boy. That isn't the case, and no one seems to be able to make a logical argument to address the valid criticisms that have come up and still linger.

The whole hypocrisy card is long since played out. I personally find all these instant fan boy accusations to only show that people can't really make any kind of sound argument for their side. I won't say that it means they lack intelligence, it just means they aren't going out of their way to express any intelligent discourse.

They may claim it's not worth it, but I would argue it is. I can be swayed with the right argument if presented correctly, and I'm sure others could as well. Not everyone who reads these comments will comment themselves. The lurkers far outnumber us. So perhaps it'd be better if people actually stopped acting like children on the playground.

Pogmathoin1018d ago

I understand what happened when PS3 launched, the BS, but you people keep bringing that up, kharma this, kharma that, but then when you have a chance to take the high road, you become what you call jokesonyou, a fanboy.... Is the X1 hate going to consume you? 2 wrongs do not make a right, but right now , Sony fanboys are taking this to a new low level, somewhere between the gutter and the sewer....

P_Bomb1018d ago (Edited 1018d ago )

[QUOTE]Of course there are some extreme xbox fans but there has never been a large segment on this site who follow and attack ps, hell all those referencing back when thr ps3 launched conveniently forget at the overwhelming "that game sucks wait until ps3 launches it will cook you breakfast"[/QUOTE]

Actually there have been a lot. I presume the ban hammer fell on em or they lasted long enough to have their bubbles reset to 5. Years of "PS3 haz no gaemz, Bluray Sux, PS3rd, day 1 sales rants, PSN Sux, multiplats are better on xbox, woe is Linux." Lotsa Don Reisinger articles, it was a different scene round here.

Even the suits got into it. Aaron Greenberg constantly making headlines about how web browsing on a console sux (years before the 360 got a browser and it suddenly became ok), about US sales > the world, PS3 is hemorrhaging at retail, calling PSN a knockoff and shredding Home before xbox adopted their OWN avatars and Gameroom hub suddenly making 'em ok. He even re-tweeted a Destructoid "PS3 fanboys are the worst" article.

Constant assault. I remember. You can't sweep it under the rug Jokesonyou. I was here.

[QUOTE]there is a significant portion of the ps community that have a hivemind mentality that strangely seems to enjoy attacking even more so than their support or enjoyment of their preferred brand.[/QUOTE]

And XBox had their own on payroll. Greenberg used to rile the communities up with quotes like:
"...we will have shipped Gears of War and Gears of War 2 before they can even get Killzone out the door. Think back to GDC 2007 when Sony promised to leap ahead in online with the Sony Home unveil. Here we are two years later and multiple delays for a product that has appears to have little to no buzz. Where are the achievements? The friends list integration across all games? Where is the long-promised video store? Where are all the other products using and networking with their CELL chip? How come Blu-ray did not result in better games? What happened with Sixaxis and rumble? Where is the complete 1080p game library we were promised? If Blu-ray as they said would be such a catalyst to PS3 console sales, then why have PS3 sales over the past couple months not seen any lift since the format victory?" http://www.gamefront.com/mi...

Lest we forget

warczar1018d ago

please don't call these people playstation fanboys, there more like microsoft haters and yes there's a difference. I know plenty of people who are just tired of dealing with microsoft in any capacity. micro could give the xone away for free and some people wouldn't wipe there asses with it. hate like that only comes from years of being screwed.

scott1821018d ago (Edited 1018d ago )

Microsoft fans are so picked on... Microsoft isn't dominating America anymore... The worlds not fair. Poor Microsoft fanboys. Sony fans are so mean to you and Sony is so mean to Microsoft.

racist comments, can anyone explain to me why a lot of Microsoft fanboys have to say racist comments about the Japanese just because they don't like Sony? Talk about ignorant tools.
P.s. if you don't like offensive and racist comments you may want to stay away from Xbox live.

vegnadragon1018d ago

This is my list with what is wrong with everything.

1. People are blowing this out of proportion. Not due events that happened, but people are reacting like this never happen before in the internet, or youtube or any other social media.

2. The actors did a nice job in the video.

3. People that commented in that video are likely PS fanboys, and stop trying to tell yourself otherwise. Of course they will be other ms haters out there that aren't PS fanboy, maybe apple or nintendo fans. But i am talking about the majority. Specially in a new console war.

4. Not once were the words TV or Sport used in the video.

5. People need to stop trying to bring sony fanboys or X fanboys are the worse. You are trying to create hate out of hate. Comments like those are borderline to comments in that xbox video, i hope that you can see this.

6. HDMI out of the box for xbox 1.

7. Stop generalizing people due to their preferences. I never once in life stop being a friend to a person because they like xbox or ps. I doubt that you would too, so stop doing in here.

8. Repeat 1 to 7.

overrated441018d ago

This point exactly, it's the gaming "community" putting it's worst foot forward. It may be a very vocal minority, but it's that minority that is making the news. Not the guys out here just enjoying games and acting like normal human beings.

lastdual1018d ago

If you don't like the XB1, the proper emotional response of a healthy, non-obsessive person is *disinterest*.

If you're not merely disinterested, but literally *hate* MS and the "Xbone", then yes, you're a fanboy.

brave27heart1018d ago

Sony fanboys...MS fanboys...the reality is its GAMERS that are making these comments, making the rest of us gamers look bad.

Instead of trying to push blame to one camp or another we should all, regardless of our platform of choice, be uniting together to condemn these idiots for giving gaming a bad reputation. Im a Sony fan, but if I heard another Sony fan being rascist or offensive Id tear them a new one.

insomnium21018d ago

@P bomb

Great comment! I remember everything crystal clear how it was back then. That is the sole reason I'm more than willing to tear MS apart when they eff up. They were the first one to laugh and spew Hate against Sony at every turn.

The only difference is that the hate against PS3 wasn't justified at all. It was attacked mostly with double standards activated. MS on the other hand has made their bed this gen and everything and anything thrown at them because of those very things IS justified. For the love of god think if it was the other way around and Sony was the one who wanted DRM etc....... It would be a Sony-hate-meltdown once again.

I think there are too many kids on this site who simply don't know how things started with all the unjustified BS from the MS camp. All they see is the present situation and they judge accordingly which to me is kinda ignorant to say the least.

The hate on PS3, BD and CELL were overwhelming on each and every gaming related site I ever went to in 2005-2008.

MiHX21018d ago

ToysRUs now won't accept gamers in their store,Because they know that it won't turn out good.

awh i remember those days. they were pretty fun. Zhuk always made me chuckle.

ChrisW1017d ago

@Gozer,

Too bad very few will actually read the article you posted. And of those who actually read it, extremely few will agree with it.

You have my most sincere and solemn apology for them...

ChrisW1017d ago

BTW, everyone here... and I do mean EVERYONE!!!

We are only 0.00001% of the gaming community.

I'm not being absurd or exaggerating with my numbers here, I am being outright realistic. How? Figure real quick how many consoles (all brands) there are in the world out there and then directly compare it with the number of users on this site.

Okay?

If they aren't Playstation fanboys... who are they? Xbox detractors? Wii fanboys? Bored 12 year olds? What's the difference? They are pathetic trolls.

jmc88881018d ago (Edited 1018d ago )

They could be anyone who notices that the Xbox One isn't the hottest console..which makes the whole hot 15 nothing but a lying farce.

They could be anyone who just wants to destroy something...pure anarchists.

So there you said it...they're trolls...yet you claim you know who all those trolls are.

And who are you to judge Malokevi? You have been one of those Xbox fanboys who has vigorously defended Microsoft every step of the way.

Kinect2 will be spying on you...and you might want to read this.
http://www.zerohedge.com/co...

So seeing how you are one of the ones who stirs up this debate by defending absolute horsecrap, on multiple websites and forums mind you, I'm sure the innocence you are trying to rain down from 'teh cloudz' above are pure and unadulterated.

Or it could be me, knowing how you post, and realizing you are just trying to get some cheap points in, by assuming, via your conspiracy theory, that it's all Sony fanboys. Aren't you the one who says conspiracy theories don't exist? Yet here you are promoting a truly pointless one.

GTgamer1018d ago (Edited 1018d ago )

Go play GTA4. Online on xbox live if you wanna hear real racism what that guy said wasn't shit compared to what i heard online and you know its the truth you guys are making this seem like a big deal.

malokevi1018d ago (Edited 1018d ago )

"yet you claim you know who all those trolls are."

I do? Jeez, I didn't realize!

"Kinect2 will be spying on you...and you might want to read this.

lol... really? This? More paranoid BS from my favorite conspiracy theorist? Let me remind you, as I have here, there, and on other sites... I DONT CARE! OK? ok.

"Or it could be me, knowing how you post, and realizing you are just trying to get some cheap points in, by assuming, via your conspiracy theory, that it's all Sony fanboys. Aren't you the one who says conspiracy theories don't exist? Yet here you are promoting a truly pointless one. "

lol. I don't know if your aware, but I neither posted nor wrote the article in question. Promoting? Man, that was easy!

If all you've got is personal attacks and "the government is out to get me"... well... that confirms my suspicions and validates my beliefs!

"So seeing how you are one of the ones who stirs up this debate by defending absolute horsecrap, on multiple websites and forums mind you, I'm sure the innocence you are trying to rain down from 'teh cloudz' above are pure and unadulterated. "

I know what I like and I like what I see. Not my fault you don't agree with me... nor do I care.

You sure are an angry feller. Take your finger off the trigger, take a deep breath, and go ride the ferris wheel. Life isn't so bad. The Illuminutty are still years away from their inevitable endgame, so you've got time to finish your bunker.

=P

jgrigs091018d ago

That zerohedge website is complete bullshit. Yes they have good point of views on some subjects. But that site is heavily biased and not professional. I'm not saying they're wrong all the time, but you also can't trust them. They are anti-everything, they never post a positive article. Which they should from time to time. Also, this article is completely avoiding the new surveillance reform bill. Which will wipe out the NSA on data collection and so on. People I understand you get scared of this kinect thinking it spies on you. But some websites you just can't trust honestly, specially Zerohedge, it isn't professional.

jmc88881018d ago

See my PM about Zerohedge jgrigs09. That is a really, really, foolish position.

@malokevi

Not angry at all man. Just pointing out your constant inconsistencies. Which tend to pop up whenever you post, wherever you post.

You do seem to care, otherwise you wouldn't be posting...so don't give me that crap.

Again here's your quote "If they aren't Playstation fanboys... who are they?"

That sir, is a conspiracy theory. You rail against them so much, you should know that. By stating it, you're promoting it. Thus it's your conspiracy creation. Which you could only come up with, if you cared enough to do so.

Funny how you think facts are BS. Again, this is the guy who is claiming Sony fanboys are the worst. The one who thinks facts are bs.

http://www.zerohedge.com/co...

Those are facts. You are just unwilling to read them for some reason. That's your problem, not mine. The fact you dismissed that proves beyond a shadow of a doubt that you aren't trying to find the facts about anything. A person who isn't as I say, wouldn't of thrown the sheet of facts back at me.

You make wild, outlandish claims, with no proof, yet you hate conspiracy theorists. Boy I think you have a problem that you hate something you do and don't even know it.

So you know what you like, and that includes all the stuff that apparently you are the only one left who likes after Microsoft did the 180's.

I don't care if you care or not. But your meme, isn't reality.

Your ignorance and twisting of the issues is very reminiscent of a sociopath. Hopefully that's just your online persona.

Why would I bring up illuminati? We all know Wall Street controls the world, our president, his opponents, both sides of congress, so on and so forth. But hey what do I know, I only called the tech bubble, housing crash, and knew in 1995 what would cause the next great depression. Was it conspiracy? Nope. I listened to FACTS.

It was called the understanding of the protections of the Glass-Steagall act and what would happen when it was repealed.

Personally I don't care if you want to be ignorant. I care more about the people who might mistakenly follow you. The ones who like you, denied reality and created the impetus for many of the fanboy battles.

You see, again, I am a potential buyer of any console from any maker as well as a builder of my own PC. I've bought from many manufacturers and enjoyed systems since there was an Apple II bought 6 months before I was born. There's facts, and then there's fanboyism.

I'll rip Sony a new one on anything they did if its warranted. You're talking to a democrat, who has disowned Obama since he named Tim Geithner and Larry Summers as his transitional team and Ben Bernanke would stay on as Fed Reserve chief in November 2008. In other words, I've been against my party's president, based on facts, since before he was even sworn in.

I based my judgements on facts. I don't care what party, what corporation, or what meme gets hurt.

You on the other hand....you seem to deny reality, claim other people aren't in it because they know the facts, and why? Because you like the Xbox One. Well just because you like something, doesn't mean you should shill for it.

malokevi1018d ago

"Again here's your quote "If they aren't Playstation fanboys... who are they?"

Sounds more like a question to me, but ok... continue...

"You rail against them so much, you should know that. By stating it, you're promoting it. Thus it's your conspiracy creation. Which you could only come up with, if you cared enough to do so."

WHAT?!?! Not even going to pretend to understand what your on about, there.

"Funny how you think facts are BS.

http://www.zerohedge.com/co...

Those are facts. You are just unwilling to read them for some reason."

lol... uhhh... I never said they are untrue, and I've read it all before. You expect me to read that regurgitated crap?

Allow me to repeat myself: I DONT CARE! there's a difference between disbelief and indifference. Not sure you understand that. I DO NOT CARE ABOUT THE AMERICAN GOVERNMENT AND WHAT THEY GET UP TO. NOT ONLY AM I CANADIAN, BUT I. DO. NOT. CARE. VIDEOGAMES!!!! :D

"You make wild, outlandish claims, with no proof, yet you hate conspiracy theorists. Boy I think you have a problem that you hate something you do and don't even know it."

errr...... again, I didn't write the article. Care to back yourself up with a shred of evidence as to what these "wild and outlandish claims" are? or should I point down to your conspiratorial ramblings as proof of your unbelievable and unchecked hypocrisy?

"So you know what you like, and that includes all the stuff that apparently you are the only one left who likes after Microsoft did the 180's."

Ummm... pardon me? meme? What are you going on about? You sure love to ramble about nothing. I think it really truly upsets you that I have genuine interest in the Xbox. Dont b mad, now, budday!

"Your ignorance and twisting of the issues is very reminiscent of a sociopath. Hopefully that's just your online persona.

Why would I bring up illuminati? We all know Wall Street controls the world, our president, his opponents, both sides of congress, so on and so forth. But hey what do I know,"

AHAHAHAHAHA. YOU ARE SO WISE! REMIND ME TO.... wait a minute... I don't care. You sure seem full of yourself. You sure you wanna throw around the word "sociopath"? I've got one for you: self-aggrandized.

holy crap.

malokevi1018d ago (Edited 1018d ago )

Part 2:

"You do seem to care, otherwise you wouldn't be posting...so don't give me that crap. "

Me posting = I care that you agree with me? hmmm... Alrighty. If you say so!

"Personally I don't care if you want to be ignorant. I care more about the people who might mistakenly follow you. The ones who like you, denied reality and created the impetus for many of the fanboy battles."

So... let me get this straight... you hate Xbox, and the thought of anyone else getting enjoyment out of it is too much for you to bear? lol... pathetic. Well then.... YAY XBOX! :P

Did you just use the word reality?

lol. I dont even know how to react to that rant. I barely uttered a phrase in my original comment, and look at the meaningless paragraphs you have produced.

You're off your rocker, bud. Over the deep end. Time to grab a snorkel and a life preserver.

Oh, and by the way, NOV 22ND CANT WAIT WOOOOOO!

Gozer1018d ago

We all know it was sony fanboys, so you can blame whoever you like, but the truth stands.Just like its sony fanboys attacking MS exclusives on Metacritics user reviews. How stupid do you think people really are. And yes, sony fanboys have a reputation, and its not a good one.

dantesparda1018d ago

^^^^
And we all know that MS fanboys are exactly the same way (Live anyone?). But lets act like its only Sony fanboys that act this way. Fanboys are fanboys, period!

Make no mistake 90% of negativity pointed at Xbox come from PlayStation fanboys.

Silly gameAr1018d ago

Well, that's what the xbox fanboys think so I guess it must be true.

karl1018d ago

... its almost as if some ppl believe ps fanboys grow up in a different country than xbox fanboys.. they are the same kind of ppl...

If by chance one group has more ammo than the other.. then thats the only reason one group may look any worse but xbone fanboys are just as bad and there is not one thing that one group would do that the other wouldnt

GrandTheftZamboni1018d ago

I wouldn't trust that number (90%) as studies show that 95% of all statistics are BS.

99% of the hate towards PlayStation is from xbox fanboys
Welcome to 2007

They deserve it for the shit they tried to pull. And it may be 90%, but i personally hope its because the commentators are informed and trying to convince others not to purchase the xbone.

debunked. see how easy it is generalize?

Some of them are playstation fanboys who used to be Xbox fanboys until they preordered a PS4 instead of an Xbox One, thus jumping fanboy ship from 360 to PS4! Ex-Xbox fanboys if you will.

Funnily enough though I don't see or hear of any ex-playstation fanboys who are jumping ship from PS3 to Xbox One, funny that, I wonder why...

Alright. All the racist and uncalled comments aside, perhaps you can address the reasons people(or Sony fan boys if you prefer) are not happy with MS right now. I'll lay them out in an easy to answer list.

1. MS tried to take control of the distribution medium and make people use an all digital future to use their platform, even if they preferred physical.

2. MS tried to take control of the 2nd hand market, and make it so the software that people buy is no longer their own. They did this so they could profit off it.

3. MS tried to require an always on(or once a day) connection for the purposes of DRM.

4. MS is bundling a camera with the system that most people don't want...even though it's no longer required. And yes, when I say most people, I do mean most people, not just Sony fan boys. Tell me before the reveal where any 360 owner...other than Edonus...gave a single rats ass about Kinect.

5. There are doubts on if MS really does have the end users privacy in mind.

6. There are doubts on if MS will keep the current course or just revert back to some or all of the above things in the future, whenever they deem fit.

7. MS has every intention to target ads to it's users. It is a core feature of the system. They aren't even ashamed of it.

8. There are others, I'm sure you know what they all are. I'm too tired to think of all of them. The fact there are so many is telling enough.

So go ahead and address the reasons people hate the X1 now. I'll also say it's not enough to just say, "well they aren't doing most of that stuff now". That only shows that you know they're issues, and shows you know why people are pissed at them.

No trolling intended. I open up the floor to you to address the issues that people bring forth. Show that you have some intelligence beyond, "OMG fan boy....disregard and diminish at all cost". I challenge you...particularly since you are there in every article calling out fan boys like it's some righteous crusade.

Ah, but here is something to think about.

If a person hates Microsoft does that mean they're a Sony fanboy?

What if that same person hates Sony does that make them a Nintendo fanboy?

What if that Same person hates Nintendo?

You just can't simply classify everyone who is an extremist as a fanboy. They could just be extremist who take advantage of opportunities using the other sides arguments.

This doesn't ALWAYS mean they're fanboys. They could simply be trolling for lulz. This could be at the expense of one or more parties simply to escalate an argument.

Yes, there're really people out there with no real sides that play each other for the fun of it. Just because they're supportive of one faction or product doesn't mean they're a fan of another even if they have one sided views.

Is it fact or fiction? Go check out 4chan forums. I bet others will understand the psychology behind some statements once they recognize the nature of mongering.

Sometimes: "The enemy of my enemy is my friend."
or in another way from the lulz perspective "The sun rose like a stripper, keeping its glory well covered by cloud till it seemed there'd be no show at all.”

Typical PS fanboys making all of us look bad. N4G is almost as bad, it's getting quite pathetic.

sobotz1018d ago

Go to the PS4 subreddit. People in there are way more mature than in here. Even I'm more an Xbox guy, I'm comfortable in there, and really considering to buy PS4 at launch also.

It's totally different in here, people in here are only gonna beat the Xbox One to death in all articles. Same can be applied to some childish Xbox fanboys in here, but they're not the majority of this site.

Pope_Kaz_Hirai_II1018d ago

It was a mistake by toys r us to leave Ps4 out of hot 15 when clearly PS4 is gonna be more sought after.. leaving it out because of a payment by ms is no excuse, i dont condone the comments but toys r us made themselves look like fools not havinjg "The actual hottest product" not on their list.

buynit1018d ago

You ppl are ridiculous! wth you mean paying for advertisement is no Excuse?! I swear you have to be a bunch of 10 yr olds. The only fools are fanatics like you and your crazy "playstation rules the world" friends..

rainslacker1018d ago

The truth is that the seasons hottest toys are usually the ones with the most money thrown behind them in terms of marketing. It makes sense since it's the way most people learn about stuff anyways.

Now, we could argue that Toy's R' US should have some sort of ethics to actually make a list that truly reflects the seasons hottest must haves in an unbiased manner, but they are a business and business will sell whatever they can in most cases.

It truly is a sad state when people, particularly our children, are so influenced by a good show of money to get the limelight. Not saying people shouldn't buy an X1, but anyone buying anything for their children should research what it is they're buying. Overall I doubt the X1 is a terrible gift for a kid. I personally wouldn't want my children to have any kind of computing device with a camera attached to it that could hook up to the internet. I'd probably not recommend it to parents for their kids if the Kinect was still mandatory, and even now I would tell them to be weary of it because of that reason alone.
