IGN:RoosterTeeth's Burnie Burns and IGN's Greg Miller discuss why it's OK to have preferences but dumb to flame each other.
Its fine to prefer one piece of hardware over the other but there is no need for insults or hunting down videos and articles just to leave harsh comments
Lol this is the life of many people. hunting down videos and articles just to leave harsh comments :-p
just a minor correction.... this is the life of many insecure people. the trend of being spiteful towards something you have no interest in vs sticking to what does interest you has been an ongoing problem in society. Not just gaming. to them, its a release to expel all this energy towards downplaying something rather than just enjoying what you do like
There are racist comments on youtube because ToysRUs put the Xbox One on their Hot toys list.They make the gaming community look like a dumb,lazy and racist community.
The racist comments we due to specific vile sonybot trolls.
dumbest people ever, if u say the xbox one sucks then ps4 automatically sucks and vice versa because more or less they are basically the same the positive side of things is that at the end of the day, fanboys are really a blessing in disguise, it shows that the gaming business is alive and well
So if people dislike Xbone because they're not as forgiving and forgetful as others who try to act like MS giving the gaming community the middle finger never happened are "dumb" people?
No, but it's their constant trolling of "xbone" that makes them dumb. Why troll right? Just don't buy it.
Yes, picking your console based on executive decisions that have since been reversed is strange. Enjoy the games each console has to offer, which to Ape's point are a very similar offering. Neither console is a bad choice, it's just preference. If you can't see that then you are indeed a fanboy.
yes very dumb, they fixed the DRM now, what's the excuse, they listened to us, system is great, great gfx, games, online, controller, exclusives, the only problem left is mandatory kinect(which some see as innovation) i know u wish that they kept DRM and failed miserably, we all know that "nature" it's funny when fanboys act all "innocent" and "honest", woooooooooow........ no sh!t
If PS as a brand sucks so why game series that weren't popular but became popular at the day they hit on PS like MGS, FF and RE, and game series that became popular and started on PS like Tekken, KH and DMC. And so many games were inspired by ICO and Shadow of Colosuss and more. As for Xbox, if it sucks so why many FPS games growing to be great as first 2 Halo games and some nicee games that started on Xbox even though they became multiplat later still started on Xbox consoles on like Mass Effect, Bioshock and Witcher. Impossible these consoles suck.
If they were basically the same, why pay $100 more than you have to?
im getting both btw, 100$ difference is the only negative about it imo
i like how they are trying to pin it on people, people dont think what they want because of advertising, its the companies who fuel and thrive off the masses.
I disagree. Sony and MS don't know my name, and couldnt careless about me personally. The only language both understand is money. They respond to money.
And to that end, they try to do their best to convince you not just to buy their product, but also to remain loyal to them. The media catches those intentions and blows them up, further increasing the odds of fanboy-like behavior. No, they don't care about us, individually. But they want repeat customers. They want people to come back and spend more money with them. So fanboys are good for them.
Title should have PC in it also.
I'm on the fence kind of, I don't like xbox it doesn't Appel to me like the wii never has, I love playstation,the brand, I grew up with playstation and it fulfills my needs in my gaming. when people I know start to say Xbox is better I just "ok" I don't rant or rave. am I a fanboy? am I just a fan of 1 brand - playstation?- does that automatically make me a "fanboy" it gets confusing the line between fan and fanboy sometimes! especially on "teh internetz"
I hear you, Fattyuk. Your confusion begins because fanboy is a word invented by 10 years olds to harass other 10 year olds. It doesn't make sense because it never was supposed to. The fact its picked up this much traction, to the point where its a name thrown about on every forum only serves to validate that far too much immaturity resides in the gaming populace.
Well said thanks! Bubbled.
@fattyUK You sir are a fan, and there is nothing abnormal about that. However, if you have ever sent hate mail or made a death threat because of a game or platform, signed or started a petition about a game or platform, left a bad review(although you didn't buy or plan on buying a particular game or system) just to be an ass, insulted someone else that has a differing opinion about a console, then you are a fanboy and you are the scum of the gaming industry and need to die.
"then you are a fanboy and you are the scum of the gaming industry and need to die." That comment is just to immature for me to reply sensibly to your whole comment. Thanks for saying I'm a fan though
@fatty Did you read his comment? Did you do any of these? ["if you have ever sent hate mail or made a death threat because of a game or platform, signed or started a petition about a game or platform, left a bad review(although you didn't buy or plan on buying a particular game or system) just to be an ass, insulted someone else that has a differing opinion about a console,"] So although I disagree with the "dying" but rather such person must grow up before becoming a criminal statistic. There are weirdo's out there!
These guys are funny and I've always listened to both of them. It's like sports, is it wrong to root for one team over another. Stop taking this stuff so serious people.
Strange that a few years ago prior and after the PS3 release neither the Media, gaming sites or the eXBox360 camp gave the Sony PS3 or any owner or supporter any gap, chance or any credit. I myself was depicted as vermin, stupid, idiotic and many other things because I preferred the PS3 based on the technical specifications at the time (obviously as we all now know vindicated). I had to endure daily comments and insults about the lack of games, the low quality the failed cell and continually hear that the PS3 will NEVER IN A MILLION YEARS CATCH UP WITH THE ExbOX360 SALES VOLUME, etc. Guess what? Very strange now that the tables turned with the PS3 and the future king of consoles PS4 that the same media and the same M$ supporters supporting the eXBox360 and eXB0Ne are now crying wolf whenever good news re the PS4 are posted on the web and now we see from the Media posted articles like this to inform everyone how bad the situation are. For all those shilling for M$. I enjoy the fact that the tables turned and love to see you in pain and disgust. Do not blame me for the mess in the Industry blame M$ and the Americans that created this monster they fed and fuelled over the past few years since the PS3 launch up even until today! The PS4 is here soon. The KING in gaming returned. Thanks SONY for making that possible. My two PS3's and soon a new PS4 will be my entertainment for many years to come in future. Just look at this beauty! (see pic)
You come into an article about fanboy wars being stupid and you post that nonsense? Hilarious. You are the reason I don't want people to think I'm a Sony fan. lol
Nobody will think you are a Sony fan as your comments proves. Nonsense you say? How old are you 7 or 8 as if you argue the point then you know absolutely F-ALL and could in hell not have experienced that period. But obviously you were in the M$ camp so would not know anything as you experienced nothing then. Problem is there are to many that cannot remember as they were to young then and by the time they started playing console games things calmed a bit. I will never in my life buy an exbox simply because of the greedy, kniving and scheming M$ and the pathetic young fanscum by the millions on that side of the ocean.
I have no freaking idea what you just said. Seriously, re-read that, and then translate it for me, because I'm not sure what language that was, but it wasn't english. "How old are you 7 or 8" Add 30 years. lol
Most fanboys are right here on n4g. Almost always ps fanboys. All fanboys are bad, but at this point it seems like pS fanboys are getting too much confidence in their console and start worshiping Sony. Worshiping any company seems creepy to me.
If PS fanboys are worshipping Sony then Xbox fanboys as well are worshipping MS.
I love a good spirited debate but it gets down right stupid at times.
