Junkiemonkeys: Sony takes shots at Microsoft's latest console, only to remove their post quickly, replacing it with a new picture. We were able to grab screen shots of both posts.
Why are they attacking and not congratulating them ? like literally this is sad , Microsoft had congratulate Sony on there launch , why not do the same Sony ?
They will when it actually launches you watch. Plus its stating facts. Its not misleading. It may be firing shots, but that's business your product needs to stand out. Its a dog eat dog business. If you don't keep up you become irrelevant. It would be wrong if they poked fun at a subjective thing, but this is objective and a fair point to make. It sets their product apart. Its called COMPETITION just because it bothers people most likely due to their allegences being elswhere doesn't make it wrong or playstations problem. It is actually microsofts problem for allowing playstation to be able to make a claim like this and causing their fans insecurities against the competition. Also it was above surprising microsoft said congrats to sony. It was quite admirable and VERY unlike them. Microsoft at EVERY opportunity likes to one up playstation even if it is PURELY subjective kr even pownright misleading. This is a fair honest and rightful claim for sony to make. Period.
I think Sony is the "bad guy" here , there was a bad guy at first and that was actually Microsoft but for now looks like Sony is turning the bad guy , what I mean in advantage , it's takedown time , just like when Microsoft brought a big boat in fornt of the PS3 launch event in France
Nothing wrong, the Xbox magazine tweeted "greatness awaits?" after the negative Killzone reviews @Below Please, cry me a river, first of all, the comment was updated, second, shots between companies is something that has been happening for a long time
@heavy That doesn't make this ok. The justification is wrong. Two wrongs don't make a right. Their statement is subjective and taking body shots for no reason. Sony stated a confirmed fact that happens to downput their competition. And as you can see the heads of sony did not approve of it and it is removed. A PR guy probably did it and people like shuhei said "we don't need to do that take it down". It doesn't represent the viewpoint or the direction of the company if it gets removed. Microsoft does this stuff but worse all the time at any chance they can get and it stays there....
@heavy @angels I believe it's just like when rappers diss each other. It's friendly competition. In an industry like this, you need something like that
You do realize that the Xbox Magazine isn't ran by or owned by Microsoft. In fact the same company runs official magazines for all three consoles.
Stay classy Sony.
@Enemy I like your style. Swift and straight to the point. Bravo.
Sony "insulting" Microsoft? Fair is fair. Sony put up with it from Microsoft for the first 5 years of the PS3's life. Anyone remember the daily nonsense that people like Aaron Greenburg would spew?
@Enemy and angel knocking it out the park with their comments. and I agree with Heavy. Xbox UK magazine tweeted something similarly snidy when Ps4 games were getting reviewed. I don't think it got deleted either so, works both ways. If you can't take it, don't give it out.
"It's takedown time..." By Xbox, you know it's Microsoft, right? take down...Microsoft, one of the most successful, richest companies in the world, ever. Let that sink in. It doesn't hurt for Sony to congratulate their competition. But, at the end of the day; Sony didn't ask to be congratulated.
yea they will when it launch, lets not forget that MS took shots at sony b4 they launch. when ps4 first party games got bad reviews, MS put up gratenees awaits on xbox one. lol its always a problem when sony try something funny world.
has it ever come to any one mind that sony was talking about last gen consoles ....and not xbox one ?! i didn't read xbox one in that comment at all i might be wrong though and it might be indeed Sony making fun of microsoft console i just don't know
I agree. Competition is good. And I will say this...Console wars are here to stay along with Fanboys. Sony keeps Microsoft in check, while Microsoft keeps Sony on it toes (hence why each OS for each console has more than enough "reserved" ram for future implementations). IF it wasn't for fanboys we wouldn't have funny gifs: http://www.heavy.com/games/...
@Angels, They probably changed it because there may be some 720p games coming to PS4 and decided to leave the next gen part out. @Ezz2013, Did you even look that it originally said 'next gen'.
I see it as friendly competition like Sega vs Nintendo. Xbox magazine dissed Sony for the reviews and they dissed right back. I find it very entertaining, honestly. Not sure why the Xbox fanboys are being hypocrites here...must be looking at things through one direction and not seeing the whole picture.
At least Sony is putting out facts. Not the zomg power of the clouds nonsense
"there may be some 720p games coming to PS4"...ah huh...which ones are those? Waiting for my BF4 1080p patch...come on Dice. You can do it. Ubi can. Well, or patch it so it doesn't crash...looks like that's the only game running sub 1080 - and it's @900p. I doubt we'll see 720p at all on PS4. AC4 after the patch has headroom - no impact on performance -> http://www.eurogamer.net/ar... And...why shouldn't Sony boost this? It's the f...ng truth. Use it! Anybody else would. It's a competitive advantage. Of course it should be advertised.
sony's been acting very unethical lately.
And PlayStation fans once again come to the aid of Sony's immaturity. Its immature and low period. No "ifs" "ands" or "buts" its ridiculous. MS congratulates them and Sony mud slings. Nope I don't wanna here the excuses.
@IHassounah http://n4g.com/news/31285/m... You keep Forgetting I'm here to remind you
LOL wow, what a huge pile of wussy boy pansies, doesn't anyone get it that this is capitalism? Business is cut throat, people's bonuses and in some cases, jobs are on the line, so you're going to get shots left and right. Microsoft has been doing it since forever, this is nothing new. Just look at the "Hi I'm a PC" and "Hi I'm a MAC" commercials, it's all about differentiating yourself and showing what you have over the competition. If you can't stand the heat you don't belong in business.
IHassounah good guy bad guy who cares, this is a business afterall and the end goal is to make as much money as possible. Its funny how MS took cheap shots at sony this whole current gen but now that sony is only stating facts to let their consumers know that they have become the bad guy ok i don't get that logic. MS has some of the most stupid executives
The thing is, I don't even see that on the FB page. ? o_O Is this article trolling?
@IHassounah Bad guy? There is no bad or good when its competition. These are competitors, this is the equivalent of trash talking in sports. How come that is praised and this is judged? Let them duke it out and you vote with your wallet. That's capitalism.
Wow the amount of defensive here.....
I cannot wait for my PS4 next week but come on Sony. Show some class. You have performed brilliantly up to now. But today is Microsoft's Day. What an amazing day to be an owner of a new XBox One. Lets hope there are no major issues and everyone has a blast with their next gen awesome gaming.
Here's Sony CONGRATULATING Microsoft: http://www.ign.com/articles... NOW QUIT YOUR CRYING @ IHassounah!
agreed, i know full well if Microsoft had the more powerful system they would have done the same! its only because they are the weaker console they cant really boast about anything now can they? lol when ur the best on the market, of course you will boast about it! this is the second gen now Sony has had the more powerful console!
I wouldn't bother let's enjoy our Gaming instead .
Sony will probably congratulate Microsoft at midnight. Why congratulate them before launch? Microsoft congratulated them after midnight. If I remember correctly, it was well into the next day. Not sure exactly what time it was.
Actually what I'm saying is why attack them even before launch ? like literally sad to see them doing this specially after Shuhei Yoshida said that it's next week for you Microsoft on twitter and Yoshida is a good guy , the bad guy is Jack and his just like Don Mattrick
Jack and "his" are nothing like Don Mattrick buddy. They are out there constantly doing interviews and trying to seem personable to the audience. Don Mattrick would never show up for anything unless a major console launch was on the way, or there was a major press conference. That is why his PR was so out of touch, he just didn't know how to communicate. So he ended up saying things like "Don't have internet? Good news. Get an Xbox 360." They are NOTHING alike at all. Shame on you for comparing. I'm not even saying Microsoft has all bad execs. I very much like Major Nelson. I can see why some people don't but I do.
