I still can't like him ...but he's one of the better MS execs.

Isn't this refreshing after all the bitterness and constant mudslinging from both sides? If only every interaction between Xbox and PlayStation fans could be this civil and pleasant.
UncleGermrod  +   656d ago
I think now that one console is out, and everyone else is almost there, everyone just wants to shut up and have fun.. the marketing war has just begun, but now that these things are here, i think people will begin to settle in and just enjoy it. Now if only we can resist the DF comparisons to come....

Neither sony or MS hate each other the way fanboys make it out to be. In fact they don;t hate each other at all. Hell even yoshida owns and plays on his WiiU all the time.

I hope executives from Sony and ms share these kind of thoughts throughout this next gen. Fanboys need to eliminated

It's competition but why can't it be great competition. End of the day ps4 and Xbox one will both sell at least 70 plus million and be considered huge success.

It's frustrating going to different gaming sites and seeing all fanboy comments. If negative news about Sony comes out than ms fanboys have a field day and when it's negative news about ms than Sony fanboys do the same. Sad thing is fanboys represent us, publishers look at them because they make the most noise so their voice is looked at as voice of gaming community

So please stop this

I miss th old days of n4g when fanboys had their open zone and we had normal conservation on articles

Gamers unite as one. Together we can make huge difference and we can stop publishers from bullying is and selling us incomplete games
LOGICWINS  +   656d ago
Amen! But what do we do about these peeps who are standing in line waiting for a PS4...and saying the first game they're going to play is COD: Ghosts?

"I hope executives from Sony and ms share these kind of thoughts throughout this next gen. Fanboys need to eliminated"

Exterminate them.

With that said next gen has been historically the most socially vocal driven community ever. People just don't look at the console, they look at the people behind the console. They look at the names the creator, architect's, PR, community managers.

Gamers are taking sides based off the people as well.

"So and so is credible nice move MS or Sony for hiring him!"

"So and so is bad MS or Sony is evil for hiring him. Bad move MS."

At the end of the day yes we can analyze but at the end of the day it should just be about the games and service.

@LOGICWINS Murder them silently.
PoSTedUP  +   656d ago
@LOGIC- first thing you would have to do is act like a "fanboy" and spread hate towards cod, like everyone else. see how it works? theres no difference in the behavior.

@showtimefolks- fanboys are natural occurrence. its no different from routing for your favorite sports team. to ask both sides to stop bashing and debating eachother is not only very unrealistic, but pretty stupid. what are you guys, mothers? "get along now, children, the mets arent as good as the yankees but you cant debate them, compare stats, or say anything bad about the other team, just shut up and watch them"... and not only are the players competing, they get into fights, as well as the fans, because they represent one side. this isnt a real war where its wrong to kill people and thus should be neutral for peace, this is a console war over the internet and it is human behavior as is with everyhing else. try jumping into anyother debate in the comments sections of lets say a boxing match, with what you just said, it would look pretty weird considering everyone is doing the same everywhere. if you are neutral and dont like to debate or take sides in anything, you are the minority, and have to deal with what goes on in the comments section by either ignoring it and sticking to people like you who share no biase and just small-talk or w/e about gaming. or there is a block button that you can use to ignore fanboys (which would take forever). i guess that it sucks for non-fanboys that the majority of the gaming community is fanboys. n4g shouldnt segregate people because in the end we are all equal, and gamers, at that.

I think the gaming 'journalist' didn't really help in throwing gas on the fire as well.
showtimefolks  +   656d ago

That's why so many sites do articles only for hits and actually start these so called fanboy wars

But here is hoping this gen with so much social media attention actually stays peaceful and gam centric and fanboys slowly vanish

Greatness awaits

Gamers for life

Also show love for wiiu and hoping that Nintendo gets their mess cleared and can deliver a lot of awesome games
AngelicIceDiamond  +   656d ago
Wow how can I forget the elephant in the room. The hit seeking articles.

fanboys are the problem but gaming journalism is what gets the fanboys going and they feed the fanboys. Meanwhile while we're here fighting fanboys, the sites gets credited and upvoted, while their ad revenue sky rockets.

And yet another article comes and the trolls and fanboys eats up the same crap over and over. Its a vicious cycle that needs to, maybe not end. But controlled.

But wait a minute? Why can't we just show love on the regular basis instead of only showing it when these guys show it?

We don't need confirmation from these guys. No matter the console we're all gaming comrad's. We all share the same passion.

Wake up Suckers. This is a failed attempt at reverse phsycology. Nice to hear, yes. But it is not genuine if you revisit all of the trash talk preceding it.
PSVita  +   655d ago
I think it very well is genuine. You gotta remember just like fanboys this guy doesn't pocket the money from each console sold. He does his job, Bullshits the media in the worst way but it's his job and I'm sure he'll even own a PS4 himself eventually.

Sony & Microsoft never had beef, it just looks that way because of loyal to the core fanboys & it doesnt help when alot of the gaming media start flame baits for hits, it just fuels these extremist. Hopefully one day we all can play alot of these 3rd party games cross platform. Would be sweet if gamers from psn & xbl & other platforms could all jump online & play battlefield or madden or cod against each other or have a mixed team. Would be awesome but much propz to Nelson & Shu for being good sports. No matter which console does better, i hope they all can be successful & keep the gaming industry strong. I want to game on even when i become a grandpa & kick my grand kids asses in future video games lol.
PoSTedUP  +   656d ago
false. MS and Sony exchange blows and take shots at eachother all the time. they are two corporations fighting Eachother for the most market share.
gamertk421  +   655d ago
True, but there is a big distinction between enemies and rivals.
ltachiUchiha  +   655d ago
I cant disagree about market share but i look at it this way, its like 2 NFL Teams in the superbowl fighting to win that trophy & superbowl ring & no matter who is victorious even with all the smack talkin & hits on the field, after the game everyone hugz & congradulatez each other on a good game win or lose. Its not like these teams hate each other, they both are just "In It To Win It". The end of the day they all have mutuel respect for each other.

i hate to disagree.. NFL players are signed under a contract, they make their money regardless. companys compete to stay relevant and to survive, they can lose a lot of money, they lose their jobs, and can lose their company in short peroid of time due to their compition. they arent competing for the satisfaction of just winning. so much more is at stake.

Bathyj  +   655d ago
Yknow I've often said, If we were all in the same room together, sharing a beer, racing Trial Mountain on Gran Turismo, shooting the Flood in Halo, or throwing red shells at Toad from a GoKart, we would all be friends.

We all have the same interest, the same passion, the same willingness to act like jerks on occasion to prove a point about something you care about.

We all love games. More than movies. More than music. More than comics or art.

If we were all actually within arms reach of each other we wouldn't despise each other for our slight difference of perspective on things.

We would simply embrace each other as brothers and say, I'm so glad I met someone who's so like me. I'm lucky to know you guys

Personally, I blame the internet.

OMG all this Lovey dovey CRAP!

Microsoft knows they made a HUGE mistake and made a Console that is very UNDER POWERED!

The PS4 is on the verge of achieving 1080p 60fps and it just got released so therefore this time NEXT year every PS4 game will be 1080p 60fps.

Meanwhile the XB1 can only hope to achieve 1080p 30fps.

That's just looking at it from a BUSINESS stand point.

from a Gamers perspective PS4/XB1 will still push out great games.

Looking forward to Ryse next week.

also Congrats to Sony as the PS4 is without a doubt it's BEST LAUNCH ever.
