The OXM Breakdown - Xbox One versus the Fanboys

The PS4 versus Xbox One wars have dominated the internet for months, but where does the man on the street stand? And what happens when you repeatedly corner and threaten the man on the street with a sound-capturing electronic apparatus?

I'm not on any side..I just wanna play the quality software that each console/platform will offer.

bomboclaat_gamer1445d ago (Edited 1445d ago )

taking sides and acting like others are dumb because they get the other system is....dumb

Watch the video.

LordMaim1445d ago

@dirigiblebill: Why bother? It's created by the Official Xbox Magazine site. Are you expecting an impartial evaluation? Or anything other than damage control and spin?

dirigiblebill1445d ago

@Lord Maim

Watch the video.

This is one of the funniest videos I have seen!

The video is pretty funny. Shame that these guys aren't doing PR for Microsoft.

I actually enjoyed that,coming out from Official Xbox Magazine,you would think there would be so much bias in this vid,well it didn't actually and I enjoyed the ride.

That "knack = Kinect" at the end though,LMAO! xD

@Lord Maim
The thing is,it's actually pretty funny & enjoyable,you should watch it man.

Edit:
That woman who wished death on all Sony Fanboys,ouch! angry much?? o_o;;

That SAME WOMAN is the one with the microphone at 2:36 ! :0

The last line in the video :
"What about WiiUtooooooooooooooooooooooooo oooot"

:(

I wonder how much of the Xbone vs PS4 controversy will seem utterly ridiculous a few years from now. Hopefully all of it. Console launches bring out the worst in people.

cyguration1445d ago

Console launches bring out the most dollars from people.

I'm not sure why people keep downplaying the console wars -- despite the silliness of fanboyism, keep in mind that fanboyism still works as its own form of marketing.

How many fanboys take flame war articles to their favorite forums?

How many fanboys submit videos like the one above because it helps slant marketing in favor of their favorite console?

How many fanboys blog about the consoles? Chat about it in livestreams? Keep threads going on Reddit or vlog it on YouTube?

How many people know someone that know a fanboy that may have been informed, enlightened or infected by the fanboy marketing speak?

It may seem silly, but fanboyism as a marketing tool (whether fanboys know it or not) still help sell consoles and brand awareness.

Companies don't scoff at fanboys as much as people would like to think... they help sell consoles and software because they help sell brand awareness.

It also brought out the best in people this time with them all uniting to fight DRM and other whacked out M$ policies!

We took on the Deathstar and won!

But the war is not over..........

DeadRabbits1445d ago

The biggest enemy the xbone has is M$!

VENOMACR12271445d ago (Edited 1445d ago )

The biggest enemy X1 and MS have are PS/Sony fanboys. Plenty of people preordered the system "as is" when first announced. But everyone wet their pants and threw a temper tantrum like a 2 year old who got clothes for Christmas and now there are 2 almost identical systems.

DeadRabbits1445d ago

1080p vs 720p is not even almost identical!

VENOMACR12271445d ago

I should clarify:

From the extent of what the system can do. Play movies, play used games, no DRM, etc etc. Not hardware specs

And some games do play in 1080

falviousuk1445d ago

At least one of those guys was reading from a que card, which was quite obvious.

Not really sure what this was all about

RDF1445d ago

My friend,this is what is called "Damage Control" and badly done at that. >_>

Godmars2901445d ago

The side that has a JRPG with a sci-fi theme with some western open world mechanics, and a Spy-Hunter game. I'd even buy an XB1 for that.

Wouldn't subscribe to XBL though...
