Fun With the Xbox One “Cycle Of Acceptance”

Chris Vellucci reports: "A recent graphic has surfaced with the title “The Xbox One Cycle of Acceptance.” The cycle shows the ‘official’ 7 stages of accepting the Xbox One has your next gen console. It’s not clear where the graphic originated, but it seems to be created by someone who wants to support the Xbox One console no matter what."

Steps of how to deal with emotional trauma due to facts mentioned as in image. I really believe that there are some people who will experience emotional trauma over resolution and frame rate.

LennyLovespuds1641d ago

I think it's time to reevaluate life and the shape it's taking if anyone is crying over frame rate and resolution comparisons.

It's nice to see that you have reached Step 7: Acceptance. ;)

LennyLovespuds1641d ago

I wasn't going through the stages of grief, as I started off not giving two shits.

andrewsqual1635d ago

@LennyLovespuds So you just admitted pretty much you are still in denial then. Great ^_^

Haha, that's pretty great.

This is clearly a fanboy troll article, it gets approved and is another reason why N4G is been seen as the retard world of gaming websites....Karam, out of interest, as a 'respectable journalist' what response are you hoping for with this post?

lawgone1641d ago

Yep. Typical N4G. I own both systems now (since purchasing a PS4 last night at Gamestop) and this kind of stuff is so annoying. Sony fanboys are the worst.

What about xbox fanboys? Do you consider them to be pleasant butterflies then?

lawgone1641d ago

@guyman...Of course not. But they are far fewer and not nearly as obnoxious.

andrewsqual1635d ago

@lawgone They are far few since 21st May 2013 you mean. So technically they were Xbots before that you are saying?

lawgone1635d ago

@andrewsqual...No, that's not what I'm saying. Most intelligent people I know that play Xbox still play it. They also have no problem admitting when the Playstation has a good game. They also don't spend every waking hour looking for ways to bash Sony. It's annoying to read over and over again, it's immature and it's non-productive. That's what I'm saying.

It's a humorous post, no matter where you are on the console spectrum. That's why it's labeled as "humor" on our site. Find me a PS4 one and I will publish it just the same :)

It must be hard to be a writer in such a volatile industry, especially with so many keyboard trolls just waiting to rip someone apart behind a monitor and anonymity. .

I've been through the cycle, this makes me giggle. I just may have made every single one of those comments LOL

cyguration1641d ago

LOL, dude it doesn't matter.

Polygon is supposedly anti-Xbox.
All of NeoGaf is apparently pro-Sony.
Cinemablend is anti-Xbox.
Reddit is apparently anti-Xbox.
Gamefaqs is somehow anti-Xbox.

It never ends. If you report anything negative about the XB1 (and there's a lot) you're instantly labeled as anti-Xbox.

N4G had nothing to do with this and it breaks no rules. You all have to ability to help moderate what is submitted, approved, failed, etc. If you choose not to do so then you have no right to complain. Pog, you're a contributor; contribute)

It's also supposed to be humorous. It really isn't very imo, but if it was sports related would it be? What if it was about the Raiders?

Point being, things are taken entirely too seriously sometimes even if spawnfirst has earned the reaction from the past. And by making the comment here you're only increasing it's exposure.

karamsoul1641d ago

Unfortunately the few "sensitive" articles we've published have branded our site as leaning a specific way perceptually, even when we actually don't. It's a shame, even though we've had some absolutely amazing op-ed, review, and feature pieces written up by top-notch writers; they don't get the deserved attention they should, and have been relegated to obscurity, even after being posted to N4G. It really sucks that the smaller news pieces get more attention than they should.

Just a microcosm of what's going on in the game journalism industry as of late.

lawgone1641d ago

@karamsoul...That may be, but you're kinda bringing it upon yourself when you post stuff like that. Reputation takes a long time to be built but only a second to destroy.

GarrusVakarian1641d ago (Edited 1641d ago )

1) It's not an article.

2) N4G doesn't create news or rumours of any kind, it just displays them.

3) It's just humour. Don't take it too seriously......

That being said.....i have seen numerous users on this website go through those exact steps. It's surprisingly accurate.

BlackTar1871641d ago

POG sorry to break it to you but to all non hardcore gamers every site is considered a retard site.

I love you guys and your tears.

Dehnus1641d ago

Same he and Maria arehoping for with every article Pinky.... try to take over the gaming world.

I saw the same cycle for PS3 and I still read similar things about Driveclub. I played it, it's not good--->delay--->it is because it's a garbage--->no it is because they are improving it--->another delay---> I'm disappointed but it will be a masterpiece for sure.

GarrusVakarian1641d ago (Edited 1641d ago )

Nice spin......

Of course the problem with your comment being that Driveclub has looked better and better each time its been shown and PS4 games are at resolutions and framerates high enough that we don't need to go through those stages of acceptance. Lol.

mrpsychoticstalker1641d ago

Titanfall will turn the tides in favour of goood and addictive fps games. Expect many more xbox to be sold.
