This. I think this is evidence of who the worst fanboys are. Sony fans aren't all upset at Insomniac making Sunset Overdrive. You don't see petitions and screaming because we are missing out on what is one of Xbone's best upcoming games.

We are talking about an independent studio finally realizing that embracing a console (the lead selling one at the moment) is good for business. Destiny isn't an exclusive PS4 game. So, why all the accusations? Or is it just a vocal minority?

Stop using Insomniac! As ted price has said they will be making exclusives for both x1\ps4 . The x1 is 1st then you guys. I would understand if there were talks for the game to come to ps4, but it was alway intended for the x1.

"You don't see petitions and screaming because we are missing out on what is one of Xbone's best upcoming games."

Actually...

It's cropped up quite a bit around different sites and forums. Even some here took umbrage at the idea of Insomniac jumping ship to Xbox.

How does anyone expect either side of fanboyism to take a courteous, more rational route of debate is beyond me.
thorstein  +   15d ago
That's 100 people on both, but there doesn't seem to be screaming, rather "please bring this game to the PS4."

Taking a more rational route is the goal.

I have no problem admitting that I wanted Titanfall on PS4. If Ryse were part of the library of games (and I know it can't be) it would certainly be worth it.

Eh...some of the attitudes can be chalked up as acting out of pure petulance. And as mentioned previously, a screaming attitude can be noticed across the web (even here) over SO's exclusivity. Not to forget the biggest target of this year: Titanfall. What could basically be considered "anti-hype" after the behind-the-doors reveal of TF's permanent exclusivity deal, there was really nothing but screaming and amassed waves of criticism over seemingly every aspect of a game that had yet to be released on this very site. A passionate group of designers had to deal with their work being soiled at every opportunity just because of effing brand loyalty.

You can take part of your initial comment, skew it a little for the past generation, and arrive at a different conclusion of the "worst" fanboys:

"We are talking about an independent studio [Capcom] finally realizing that embracing a console [Xbox 360] (the 2nd-best selling one at the moment) is good for business [Devil May Cry 4]."

Even back then, the change from PS3-exclusive to multi was met with a lot of unwarranted vitriol just for a business decision that they believed would've lead to greater success for the series.

The point isn't to directly point fingers exclusively at a fanbase, only to suggest it's really not that hard to find dirt on any of them that would suggest they're "the worst."

Sorry but Sony fans are by far the worst fanboys in the history of all gaming all you have to do is read the comments from any gaming media site at any point from the early 90s on.
Fanboys are fanboys and they all suck at life but there is definitely a higher % in Sony's corner and its obvious...

They are all bad IMO real gamers by all the game systems they can afford not one of of some stupid brand loyalty.

God awful click-bait.

It is a topic in the podcast and probably a huge part of this episode. Call me crazy but doesn't it make sense to put it in your headline?

Hey man check this sh@t out first of I'm a Microsoft fan straight up not saying I don't like ps4 or anything I like it and I think it's badass but I'm Xbox you know!!! Anyway bungie does not hate Xbox fans they actually love them just like Sony fans its all business no matter what happened in the past (insomniac) ps4 fans get what I'm saying! Hey man things happen. People move on (gamers) and everyone needs to just let dev expand its for the best plus helps Sony and Microsoft better themselves. Good job on both competitors both showing compassion for their fellow gamers! I hope the best for both..........GAME ON

Bungie love money, they couldn't care about what console is more popular as long as the game sells enough to make enough money so they can make another game and employees get paid at the end of the day.

I ordered that loot crate because this month sounds awesome and a shirt was announced so I figured I give it a try. Hope it was worth my $20 by at least just giving me a badass villian shirt (something carnage, venom, or joker themed would be sick). Anyways I am saying this because I thought that was what they were reviewing sadly it was last months

Destiny would fail without Xbox fans because of all the money invested into it ($500 million for developing and advertising). And Xbox wouldn't really care since they have Halo.
