There is no doubt that the eight generation of console gaming has been marked by a lot of controversy and some serious exchange of emotions between the PlayStation and Xbox fan base.
Thats great man , nice one Sony
It's very great on Sony, especially considering the underhanded marketing tactics Microsoft has been employing with its Destiny Cologne or whatever it was... with a link that leads to you buying the X-bone with Destiny bundle. Although really, this has been going on since the days of Nintendo and Sega, nothing has changed, except now the flame wars are fanned on the internet instead of at the school playground.
I wouldn't really call it underhanded... It was pretty funny, and I think that's the point. It's not like they said "This is how you share games on PS4". Now that was a direct shot, and was still funny. It's a fake cologne. People need to lighten up. OT: Good on Sony, that's some excellent sportsmanship right there.
@ aconnellan I thought it was a clever and funny loophole hole...till the "click" part. The jab about somthing smelling fishy... that i cringed at over the hypocrisy.
I thought the cologne thing was funny and clever, but I wondered, if MS is advertising a destiny cologne are they legally obliged to actually sell one? Are you allowed to claim to be selling a product that doesn't exist, even if tongue in cheek? I thought that would be false advertising.
It's like some of you don't get SEGA's marketing campaign "against Nintendo" back in the 90's.
Am I the only one thinking that this is Sony having a dig at MS since the XO Kinect doesn't support the Dutch language at launch and this is in Dutch.
HYPOCRITES!!!! When Phil Spencer congratulated Sony on a great launch all you damn Sony Ponies said "he just acknowledges the winner!" and now that Sony says welcome to the Netherlands you give praise in competition. I cant stand you goddamn fanboys. Ashamed to be a PS4 owner. Double standard at it's best. Even down to the fact that you shat on MS for bringing TV and Kinect to the console, but Sony's whole E3 2014 presentation this year was about the Camera and Sony TV and you had nothing to say. You ppl are sheep. Why don't you complain about the fact that PS+/PSN for PS4 is NON EXISTENT!
Jeez man, calm down. Did somebody come into your house and pee in your shoes or something?
"Randostar", He is just reverse trolling, don't bother answering him, just disagree and move on, If he gets ignored long enough maybe he'll just move on to some poor Linux forum and troll there.
That's not Dutch, it's Norwegian.
I'm Dutch and you are wrong xoxo
The link had been changed, now it is Dutch.
Woootsh! Nice one, TableCloth.
I'm Norwegian and that is most definitely not Norwegian :P
I'm Brazilian and that's not Norwegian ;D
I'm Ghanaian and that's absolutely not Norwegian :p :p
I'm American and don't know what the heck it is.
I'm Giorgio A. Tsoukalos and that is surely Alien. xD
I'm from Gondor and that is certainly not Norwegian.
I'm American and I don't know where the Netherlands are....is that anywhere near Holland?
I came from a cabbage patch
I'm Guyanese and that is most definitely pig latin(igbay atinlay)
'Murica, that is all.
maybe it's Nortch language or Duwegian language. edited below - obviously you can't take a joke or a simple switch of letters.... these robots on N4G have no sense of humor I mean one person says it's not DUTCH and the other says it not NORWEGIAN... well it's got to be something.. shame... no body can take a freaking joke nowaday...
Sick around long enough and maybe they'll absorb it from you.
or the possibility that it isnt really funny. most jokes are not that funny when read out or if you are from a different country with different cultures.
or the more likely reason Hkgamer.... morons are morons and can't read between the lines. I mean it's not like I bad-mouthed their countries or culture... I simply switched the letters around because they couldn't decide if it was DUTCH OR NORWEGIAN... you know a "play" on words... I'm so sorry it twisted your panties up...
and i speak norwegian and you are wrong as well! "Velkommen til Holland" is norwegian
"I'm from Willy Wonka's factory and that's not Norwegian"
Damn Oompa Loompas!!! LOL
LOL really are you stupid im from Holland in that is Dutch my friend! NL for Netherlands
Good tweet. Take note N4G users.... We can all exist together....
One day we will end this bickering and unite as one. One against the PC elitists.
Actually , no we cant. N4G mods are sony fanboys even their twitter acct's say it and when xbox fan speaks out to them we get banned, no open ticket complaint just banned. Ive been a member since the site started and its changed horribly bad. Im happy when fans speak/chat but when always negative or out right lies well its just sad. Anyways thanks for the positive post:)
People like YOU are the problem, not N4G mods. Find another site to complain about with your comments rather than the topic on discussion!
Then...why was it the other way around the last generation? did ALL of the mods and the owner of this site just change allegiances with the release of the Xbox 1 and PS4? did you have a stroke and forget about N4G having a dominant Xbox360 tilt? In-stead of trying to find some sort of stupid brain-dead conspiracy, maybe you should look at the events that conspired to tilt the population of PS4 users on this site over the Xbone users? The sheer amount of PS4 consoles sold, the bad policies and decisions that Microsoft made at the beginning of this generation did them no good and is still haunting them...and rightly so. There are reasons for everything, man. If you don't like it, leave this place and find an Xbox one dedicated forum and get your ears tickled by how wonderful Ms console is.
Fans on this site are very competitive for sure.
polish is better https://twitter.com/PlaySta... it means" thousands of players welcomes one" it suppose to be a pun about popularity of xbox in Poland
And Xbox answered: http://bi.gazeta.pl/im/ba/3... "One invite thousands of players"
Microsoft responds by . Sending PlayStation a complementary bottle of Destiny.
Yea lets just forget all of the amazing acts of courtesy Phil Spencer has shown to both Nintendo and Sony.
Oh my. It was a joke. The console wars have completely stripped some of you guys of a sense of humor. The "amazing acts of courtesy". Lets all stop being so emotional. I imagine your voice cracking as you fight back tears. Guess what, I love Phil too. Everyone loves Phil. Phil loves Phil.
So you want the people in the console wars to stop getting so emotional, but then proceed to insult me and try to make a joke about me having a high voice and crying? Good going bro. You are the exact type of person who need to be slapped in the face on this website.
Oh snap! You are crying aren't you? Dude, bro, man up!
Damn bro... heres a few boxes of tissue all though you might need a towel. Lol
"The saint Phil Spencer", You guys kill me, This is Microsoft we are talking about, If Phil Spencer is acting all warm and fuzzy with the competition that wasn't his decision, It was made in a corporate think tank as a means to fool the dull minded into thinking that Xbox and Ms "aren't so bad after all". If you have dealt with Microsoft for the past 35 years you would see his benevolence for what it is. The previous head Mr. Elop was so transparent I don't even remember him and the one before him Don Mattrick acted like your typical Ms division head, arrogant with no sympathy for the consumer. With Phil Spencer they are just trying another strategy. I really don't understand why people think that corporations and the people that run them are ALL FOR the customer, they are only all for the customer when it comes to the bottom line, by making the customer happy with intelligently crafted PR and (hopefully) a good product and services. And that includes Sony as well.
Is there an hilarious Destiny fragrance commercial out yet? Microsoft need to get on that, that would be gold for them.
I would actually buy it if it was real.
GAF has already made a start: http://www.neogaf.com/forum...
There's 2 things in this world I hate, intorence of other peoples culture, and the Dutch.
Tell me why you hate us.
He doesn't. He was quoting Michael Cain from Austin Powers 3.
This says a lot about the friendly Dutch. Well played.
Its only the fanboys that fight.. Didn't everyone see the Xbox and PlayStation guys out for drinks at gamescom? I read tweets about companies swapping staff and going to "the dark side" Even now everyone gets so up in arms about the destiny joke... I bet the Sony guys had a laugh with it and will likely do something similar with cod.. Its all fun and games.. The shareholders can hate each other, the employees of these companies sure don't seem to
Back to the 16bit days when the commercials were great.
"Didn't everyone see the Xbox and PlayStation guys out for drinks at gamescom? I read tweets about companies swapping staff and going to "the dark side" You understand though that both companies promote that kind of "fight" right?
I don't think they promote it.. But they certainly don't try to stop it
no, they promote it i.e. Destiny Cologne (they are fully aware) -it's all good. xoxo
Yeah, can't wait for the "COD flipflops" advertisement. That should do a lot for gamer relations.
nice one sony :)
Nice, I wonder why they didn't congratulate them on japan though?
Have you got the latest sales figures from Japan or something? You can give a honest comment when we actually see figures.
what do sales numbers have to do with congratulating someone on expanding their business? settle down little timmy.
Too bad some people here still making negative comments or avoiding some kind of praise.. fanboyism is one ugly mother
Usually x 's annd o's mean kiss and hug, right? I bet this was gamer code for going in and canceling..X and O baby.. **Plastic wrap cap off** lol Just bringing some light.
maybe they thought the building was still Sony
it was about time all the times xbox has said congrats to sony.
