Want To Troll The GT5 Date? Don't Get Caught

"People who have been looking forward to GT5 since soon after GT4 hit the shelves were sure to be slightly disappointed by today's news that the title wasn't going to land in Japan until March 2010.

This caused sympathetic forum members around the world to come alive with comments like "they're probably working on enhancing the damage modeling" and "it's better released when it's ready" and various other comments, but obviously at some point fanboys tried to get involved and comparisons to Forza 3 were made including this seemingly innocuous post over on NeoGAF highlighting the difference in release schedules between GT and the Forza series." (Gran Turismo 5, PS3, Xbox 360)

...M$ is know for this kind of marketing. They do it with Linux and Mac. Its called spreading FUD: Fear.Uncertainty.Doubt.

They did it from the outset of this generation, but people should accept it and know who they are supporting with their dollars. Personally, I will not support this tyrannical company.

I've been saying that most of the PRO-360 guys HAVE to be employees. Otherwise it really is mind boggling that people can feel that way.

I know people love the online aspects(LIVE) and the halo, but to go out there and bash people who don't like it and spread lies to make the product better is like meeting someone who is a die-hard fan of the cereal that is sold in a bag with a generic name. Just wont happen. I have never seen someone praising Vizio TV's to death... or Walmart brand clothes. Just doesn't happen.

SONY employee's would NEVER do that...and I'll tell you why!
For all of you MS fanboy's out there who say BS to the above statement, you have no idea what your talking about. The Japanese culture, unlike American culture, is based on HONOR. To the point of death before honor...i.e. WWII kamikaze pilots and a society for centuries who peformed Hari-Kari on themselves if they dishonored themselves. (for all you kids out there who don't know jack and think everything is owed to you, they would rather commit suicide than be dishonorable. AND THEY DID!)

The Japanese honor goes further down the chain to even non Japanese employees, just look at how well respected and received Phil was when he ran Sony. Sony only hires respectable people who will HONOR the Japanese way of doing business and that is to RESPECT your enemies/competition as well as your friends.

Microsoft...their actions speak volumes to the kind of people they are.

EDIT:
I'd like to mention after reading the entire thread on neogaf.

the guy is a moron. he responded outside his jurisdiction.

BUT here's the difference between a gamer's website like neogaf and troll heaven that is N4G. the discussion doesnt go past maybe 7-8 people commenting on it before the original mod that mentions it agrees it was probably some low level employee who was already known to mainly tread in 360 threads, who happened to post in a ps3 thread.

it didn't go beyond that. here in N4G though...i'm sure it's opened a can of worms.

Microsoft literally employ's about 100k employee's or something like that worldwide and you guys bring out the pitch forks cause some nobody said something bad about GT5, I'm sure you have plenty of nobody fanboys who work for sony who visit internet sites, hell I bet a few from all facets of the industry visit sites and say negative things about the competition, its anonymous so who knows who these people are. In fact I'm willing to bet some guy who works at sony's mail room, or is a janitor at microsoft visits n4g or other gaming sites. Hell with they way n4g sounds I don't trust anything posted here, fanboys are making sites and accounts just to hate on the competition, sad. I think sometimes you have to be wary of the same people who point the finger they could just as easily be trying to throw dirt on the otherside and spread FUD. I wouldn't put it past a fanboy to make this stuff up and then be the same guy who says "aha I caught you", but I'm sure theres fanboys at every level who do this, I remember someone at sony being caught edit microsoft wiki page too or something like that.

Although this guys comment was silly, I'm not sure how sensible some of the allegations people are making really are.

Have a look at his post history, for the last 3 years this guys hasn't really gone out of his way in "trolling" in favour of MS.
http://www.neogaf.com/forum...

Yes it does seem he may have been trolling in this case (or maybe just wants GT5 to be released already?) but I think some fans, and the GAF mod were a bit quick to point to the fact he has an MS corp e-mail as if it actually means anything beyond the fact that he's a gamer and works for MS.

The MOD could have easily looked up his post history, as well as the people claiming he's "paid to troll".

Anyhow, just trying to add a little bit of sensibility to this story.

EDIT: Apparently GAF has some sensible posters ;) Thanks v1c1ous.

Heres something to consider....

True Story but it is just a theory--- my roommate is friends with a man named A-- his brother works for MS. A owns a 360 doesn't play a ton of games but likes to play-- we have 360's and Ps3 at the house and he comes over -- every time my roomy Jorge tells him "yo bro, gotta get a PS3" he just kinda makes this face with a smile and is like "noooooooooo"

Now A is a cool guy, but he is actually embarrassed to have a PS3 and have his brother see it-- he seriously knows his brother will be disappointed in him.

I live about 70 miles north of Seattle.

"conveniently forgotten about GT5 Prologue and GT PSP"

Also he conveniently forgot about the free GT HD Concept on PS3, and a little known GT4 online game which came out in 2006.

It's actually quite worrying that the time gap between Forza 2 and 3 is so short 0_0. Guess now we know why it can't stand up to GT5 graphically.

Now, when you find those..

Exclude the ones that aren't counted on GameRankings & Metacritic.

Enjoy that exercise, because you're just "buh buh" and making excuses. There is a giant cloud of doubt that looms around the credibility of gaming media when it comes to sony, this kind of stuff just proves its right.

There is NO gloom/doom/negative Microsoft coverage from reputable sites that even raises the question if Sony has been doing questionable things behind the doors.

aaron5829  +   1763d ago
PS Fanboys are the worse ?
Well, let me tell you why.

It's because the XBOX fans have been intimidating the PS Fans for 1 whole year, before it was released.

If you've been here since back then, you'd probably know / deny that there are posts here saying "SONY SUCKS" "PS3 WILL FAIL!!!" "Sony EPICFAIL " "PS will FLOP" "blablabalblabla" and all that... FOR NO REASON. A news about Uncharted... in the posts.. you'll see " muahahaha ps3 sucks.... "

So now... you see where i'm going ? Sony fans are fighting back...

I'm not saying i'm a fanboy, although i just own a ps3 and a pc, but it's what i observed. Usually i stay away from this flamebait news..

but oh well.... just my opinion anyway.

I'm far from a microsoft fan... In fact for the last console generations I've had pretty much every console I could sink my teeth into. Planning to break into pc gaming full time when I finish college and can afford a rig and update it regularly to keep up. Until then its just the consoles. So I like to think of myself as a gamer through and through.

I'm not defending anyone here but before anyone jumps the gun you have to realise that chances are a fan boys dream job would be to work for the console creator of their choice. Chances are this is one fanboy who just happens to also work for microsoft, and who happens to be stupid enough to use a corporate email address. And post dumb stuff.

People are stupid, they do stupid things without thinking, especially in the world of the internet. I don't think its fair to judge all microsoft employees based off the actions of one. I'm sure you all work with some idiot, who messes things up for everyone at some point, or makes stupid decisions. I'm also sure the last thing you want is to be compared to that ass. I know I've worked with many ritards in my short life. Chances are this guy is the idiot around the office.

The fear I refer to? The FEAR I refer to is the fear that turn 10 clearly has of PD. With their constant attacks of their competition's product. If they were so sure of themselves, they wouldn't have to rig internet polls or have trolls self promote for them.

And no fanboy child, I don't have "fear" of one game outselling another. That's YOUR field of expertise. Get out of that bubble you live in once in awhile. The air will do you some good kid. Maybe THEN, you just might realize not everyone thinks as narrowly as you do :)

Despite Uncharted 2 using an even better streaming system than Drake's Fortune. Other reviews have said you don't see ANY loading screen at all from the beginning of the first mission till the very end of the game.

"Gunfights are too repetitive"
Despite all the other reviews praising the inventive and varied gun battles that Naughty Dog has put into Uncharted 2.

"Sound = 7"
Despite the soundtrack being mixed and mastered at Skywalker Ranch.

"Replayability = 7"
Despite Uncharted 2 having MORE stuff to unlock than Drake's Fortune. More Hidden Treasures. Even a multiplayer mode consisting of various co-op and versus modes.

They'll need all the viral attacks they can get
GT5P, a priced demo, managed to outsell both Forza 1 and 2.

meh , are you guys sure sony or nintendo wouldnt use the same tactics as well ?

remember the so called psp blog ?

Personally i dont care and dont see the major importance of it . Employe or not , blindly following a troll is just sheer stupidity .

Take Omega , murderdolls or the other usual suspects , you can let them bait you once everywhile , but other than that senseless drivel should just be ignored most of the time .

This kind of story just make it even more pathetic

I'm not surprised M$ is retarded and a corruptive company.

Isn't Forza 3 basically an expansion pack sold for full price?
How can they say that when GT5P outsold both Forzas? Isn't that a bit embarrassing?

They continue to sell a product to the consumer with a high failure rate ( which they haven't even got rid off ) which is against the law.
3 year warranty, KMA. It's like buying a fridge, but they'll replace it when it breaks down, what every 3 months LMAO. A fridge is meant to last for YEARS.
The discs that the games are on, are DVDs ( old ) and shouldn't be those prices.
They overprice their accessories.
They Blackmail ALOT.
Their customer services is $hit as well.

The XBOX was designed to rip you off from the very start.

See, even MS knows GT is the elite driving game. Meanwhile MS is a dirty player and puts out cheap crap consoles.

I've told you people so! Our M$ HQ is taking action, but it looks like nobody believe me.. There will be more to come, and this time the HQ will not afford a mistake! The kid made a huge mistake, he probably be fired tomorrow and ofcourse no pay-check for him.

who do you think i fight with on a daily basis?
Its fun to make these paid fanboys look stupid.
also, this isnt the saddest thing microsoft has done with turn 10's name on it.
Remember the poll they skewed and offered exclusive dlc to those who voted? oh that was the saddest day microsoft wants people to forget.
That & ... this.
