Its nice that Sony doesnt poke fun at needing to shovel down bags of Doritos and gulp down Mountain Dew to up the chances of winning an Xbox One.... so why is Greenberg poking fun at the five buck box Taco Bell contest to win a PS4?

The guy is so unprofessional and a plain hypocrite.

When Sony pokes fun, it makes sense! This does not.
It's not that PS fans can't take a joke.

There is a huge difference between playing the XBO once for a few minutes at some event and winning a PS4 console for you to own.

Another sad Xbox fan. If you cared to check my first comment, you would see all the facts I need. But let me explain it to you in simpler terms.
This "Joker" makes a joke stating that it's better to play on an Xbox for a couple minutes than winning a free next gen console. He seems to forget that people already got a taste of both consoles a long time ago.
But wait, you may need even simpler terms, let me try this to see if you get it.

Death  +   384d ago
Sony not anti-consumer? Not even a little? Haven't seen many companies change formats over the life of a device. UMD's didn't last as long as I had hoped. Luckily Sony had a great solution and gave me the opportunity to re-purchase the games for the UMDless PSPGo! Same goes for b/c in PS3's. Rip it from the console and then charge to download it instead. Great move. Mandatory Plus if you want to play online next gen? Awesome pro-consumer move. Atleast they kept their promise with "Full HD" gaming on the PS3. All Vita jokes aside, atleast they didn't go with another anti-consumer over priced proprietary format for memory on the system. Would have sucked to pay Microsoft prices for memory cards when so many cheap alternatives exist. Yes, thank you little baby Jesus for a great company that launched a game console at $600 and told me to get another job if I wanted one. Hell, I'm still waiting for the $1200 Jack promised if I could find a PS3 on store shelves for more than 5 minutes. The one thing Sony atleast nailed as pro-consumer was protecting my personal information and credit card numbers in a secure encrypted file on their servers. Could you imagine if they failed to encrypt it and left a hacker steal it from their servers? The only think that could possibly make it worse is if they waited a week to tell me. Now that would be anti-consumer. Kind of like kicking me off the free online unless I opted out of a class action lawsuit for doing it. Now that would be classless and anti-consumer.

Any of this ring a bell?

I am literally- as in, like an out-of-body experience- beside myself, trying to figure out how those comments by Angelic, malokevi, and Unholy got "Well Said."

malokevi's comment isn't well said because, well, it just isn't. It's not that nobody here can take a joke. It's that the joke wasn't funny, and is actually hypocritical, given their promotion with Doritos and Mountain Dew.

Unholy's first comment is the same. It's trying to draw a parallel between funny jokes and unfunny ones. Oh, and assuming another user's reactions. The second comment is essentially a continuation of the false parallel from the first, meaning it's not very well-said, at all.

And Angelic's comment starts off by saying Heavy lacks facts, yet disregards his original comment, which is fairly factual: winning a console early is FAR better than just getting to play it for a while at a traveling event; both companies are doing this, so it's not like it's really a point in their favor; the joke rather falls flat due to Microsoft doing a very similar promotion. The comment then continues by implying that a rather critical PR message is on the same level as an unfunny, unofficial tweet.

NONE of these comments is Well Said. Yet, somehow, on this Sony fanboy haven, they all get bubbled up.

Does this make sense to anybody else? Cuz I don't get it.

Again- and this is specifically to all you MS fanboys bubbling each other up for saying stupid crap- NOBODY IS UPSET AT WHAT WAS SAID.

It just wasn't funny.
MazzingerZ  +   384d ago

@ Death

You are so desperately trying to compare Microsoft's disgusting planned actions, to Sony's circumstantial situations. My lord loyalism at its finest. Don't try and drag down Sony to any sort of comparable level of conscious anti-consumer measures taken by a corporation who wants the gaming industry to bow to their control.

1) You might as well call sony anti-consumer for adding a new storage format each generation if you're going to call them the same for changing UMDs to game cards.

2) PSP-GO had no pretention about it. it was a digital-only market choice. Buy a physical PSP-3000, or buy a PSP go. Anti-consumer? hmmmm.

3) The removal of backwards compatibility would be anti-consumer, IF consumers didn't have the option to play their older games either (A) on a PS3 that already exists on the market and (B) an older console native to those games. They removed the Emotion Engine to reduce costs so that the price would be more appealing for who? Consumers.

4) Ripping BC from the console was a fiscal responsibility. To this is was a malicious choice is ridiculously stupid. But not an unexpected conclusion from an Xbox fanboy. And selling it is again... a choice. They bothered sprucing up the games and adding value to the package, and many gamers found new series they had not played before. There are certainly a couple i'm grateful for.

5) I'm sorry it hurts you that Plus offers so much value off the bat. I'm sorry that every other feature is not behind its paywall just for the sake of greed and control. Plus being a requirement of online play is one way of Sony ensuring they can continue to offer a ridiculously high-bandwidth service for their gamers for a console that is designed to be constantly uploading and downloading. I'm sorry Sony has not been charging us for dedicated servers for many years, and the other company has been charging for P2P for over a decade.

6) "Full HD" - a vision that didn't come to fruition. Luckily lots of games are native 1080p, but i'll be damned if lack of foresight is anti-consumerism.

7) Why even mention "Vita jokes"? The memory card situation is ridiculous, and any price cut is a welcome one. I've scorned Sony about things like this before, but is not an overarching theme of their willingness to screw over a consumer base. Whereas, Microsoft are anti-consumer at their core of how they do business.
DigitalRaptor  +   383d ago
8) $600 console? How much less is the Xbox One? $100. What drove up PS3's cost? Blu-ray, a standard that is now widely-accepted. How much were Blu-ray players at the time? $1000+. Was Blu-ray a CORE PS3 installation? Yes.

Xbone is a $500 console. What drives up its cost? Kinect, a device that hasn't been able to justify itself since its release. Is Kinect a CORE Xbone installation? No. It was required for anti-consumer purposes, until they were forced to say it wasn't a requirement, and they're still force bundling in a non-required requirement.

9) "Second job". the price was set in stone. It's proven to not be anti-consumer, but all this comment was, was rubbing salt into a wound that may or may not exist. Clearly that wound was wide open for you.

10) "I'm still waiting for the $1200 Jack promised"- Good god you're bitter. Anti-consumer? hahahahahahha.

11) "Credit card details". Not sure if serious, or being ironic. Sony did what any other company does in the event of a hack. They plug a leak, they deal with the security problems and implications. Then when they are sure they have the information to deliver, they tell their consumers. Now since the credit card information was encrypted like you said, it made no difference by telling us a week later. Not really sure what point this was trying to deliver.
-

So to conclude, I'm not saying Sony has never done anything questionable, but to compare the actions of both companies is night and day. You'd have to be a fool to see any different. And you'd have to be even more of a moron to support Microsoft based on their actions over the past 6 months alone.

Death  +   382d ago
@Raptor,

So what you are saying is everything Sony does is just circumstance and not controlled by Sony and everything Microsoft does is anti-consumer? Makes perfect sense. You are right about Sony not ripping b/c out of scorn, they did it to keep PS2 sales going since that was where their profit came from. If you were a PS2 owner that bought a PS3 without b/c and you needed to replace your PS2, you probably weren't feeling the pro-consumer buzz. No doubt b/c is not cheap for manufacturers, but anti-consumer Microsoft kept plugging away at it when Sony threw in the towel.

I appreciate you apologizing for Plus "hurting" me, but I happily subscribe since I have a PSP, Vita and PS3 that I use it on. It's cool that you drink the Sony Kool Aid and wave your pom-poms, but that doesn't change the fact that neither company is pro or anti-consumer like many want to believe. Microsoft launched a console that was plagued with issues, but they also spent over a billion to fix it by extending the warranty at no charge for three years. Sony launched a console that was way over priced and ripped out hardware and features to make it more affordable. I say the support by Microsoft was a good thing, you thank Sony for making the PS3 more affordable so more people could enjoy Sony's greatness. Makes no difference to me, but please don't tell me Sony is looking out for it's customers while Microsoft is not. Both are simply selling their products.

@ultimatemaster

"Microsoft is copying Sony.

Hell, they had that since PS2, but they stopped it for a while and then resumed it."

Right! Because console promotions began with Sony? Wrong on so many levels. When I was in undergrad in 2000-2001, Microsoft gave my dormitory a XBOX console two weeks before launch. The console sat in our dorm living room, for us to try out. Then they returned two weeks later to retrieve the console before launch. They also left boxes of XBOX t shirts for us, thus every freshman was wearing XBOX t shirts on campus lol, free shirts why not? Anyhow I guess you think a company who hasn't turned a profit in half a decade, has more marketing funds than one of the most successful companies in the world.

After that comment I think I'm done with the so called gamers on this site, it's full of fanboys who worship companies as if it's a religion lol. While you fanboys continue to argue over which console is superior, I'll be enjoying all three come 11/15 & 11/22. Definitely will be having too much fun to partake in unnecessary fanboy debates.

If only the Sony logo was kaz hirais face.

But will it be mine if I play it early? At least withe taco bell I know it will be mine *if* I win.
ShinnokDrako  +   384d ago
I see GreenTurd is still an idiot. Oh well... if, according to him, to play some minute and to get the console itself are the same thing, who am i to go against GreenTurn?

Typical troll reply.. Mindless Sonybot.
hankmoody  +   384d ago
The guy makes an admittedly corny little joke and the thread gets moist with butthurt tears. The reactions I'm seeing to this are ridiculous. After all the hate the Xbox One has gotten from the Sony Camp, one cheesy little retort makes all you guys get THIS upset? Sheesh.

Looool ikr it's funny to see these companies troll each other tbh :).....
Majin-vegeta  +   384d ago
I don't mind M$ poking fun at Sony like this.Yet again this is the only way they can poke fun at Sony cuz they've been humiliated by Sony since FEB.
KwietStorm  +   384d ago
What is the deal with this "butthurt" thing?
DigitalRaptor  +   384d ago
It would be a joke if it weren't so painfully hypocritical.

And "upset" is a bit of an overstatement. We're just pointing out the plain obvious, but apparently real criticism = tears, to you guys. The only "butthurt" is coming from those consequences of eating at Taco Bell.

Newsflash, nobody is butthurt. The so-called 'joke' didn't make any sense whatsoever.

Greenberg is lame. He can try all he wants , but he'll never be on Yoshida's level.
OmegaShen  +   384d ago
Tour Vs console, game and I think 1 year of PS+. Yeah sorry Microsoft, I think Sony beats you badly.

An lets not forget which one has the better specs and offers more for the gamers and doesn't spy on you lol.

Those who live in tortilla houses shouldn't throw cans of dew.

Always fun to see corporate folks willing to throw down admittedly cheesy jokes, though, so good for him.
PR_FROM_OHIO  +   384d ago
Wonder how many of these folks were paid actors with Microsft you never know lol!!
amnalehu  +   384d ago
The only thing is they get the play early, but the taco bell winners get to take the PS4 home early.
TomahawkX  +   384d ago
Yea Greenberg, better send as many of those tour buses out as you can because Sony is whooping your ass all across the globe.
ElementX  +   384d ago
I'd rather stay away from fast food and wait for my PS4 from Amazon.
thejigisup  +   384d ago
How about stairs Andy?! Do we need the ability to walk in order to plaay xbox one early bc some people have already learned that the hard way. Unless you too are giving out consoles.

On a lighter note in glass light hands can be taken, is much healthier fur the gaming community than the snide remarks and obvious lame insults

You see, it's even the little things like this that make me despise Microsoft. MS loves to trash talk when they're in NO position to trash talk. It's one thing to troll when you clearly have a leg up, as arrogant as it may be, but it's just pathetic to trash talk when you're WORSE than the competition. You can't synthesize success through jabs. It takes listening to fans and really analyzing what is wanted, needed and desired. Not what gimmicks look good on paper to impress investors with. This goes beyond Xbox. You see the same thing with all of their other devices. MS is pathetic.
CocoWolfie  +   384d ago
because the only way you can 'play' a ps4 is through toco bell :') theres no expos or retail stores or anything.. hey imagine if you can win one ear.. yeah a tour doesnt exactly count to winning one guy
FullMetalTech  +   384d ago
I dont know why hes taking a jab at Sony when they did the same thing in 2001 for the OG Xbox.

"Taco Bell is leading the much-anticipated introduction with an unprecedented sweepstakes promotion that gives consumers an opportunity to win a free Xbox before they can even buy it on retail shelves," said Debbie Myers, vice president of media services, entertainment & licensing, Taco Bell Corp. "Xbox appeals to Taco Bell consumers who are also avid gamers seeking adventure and excitement," said Myers.
TechMech2  +   384d ago
Ha. Ps fanboys get upset over this. Get over it!
jagstatboy  +   384d ago
Has anyone here won a PS4 yet with a Taco Bell code, or know of someone that has?
Mikelarry  +   384d ago
MS so quick to fire shots but when shit starts falling they run to thier holes with comments like " its not about specs" " we respect sony"
tigertron  +   384d ago
I was wondering when Aaron Greenberg would show up and troll.
Bellcross  +   384d ago
The irony...

Exactly what I said!
