N4G should be better policed. Ive said this before but its out of hand on here. This is a trolls paradise. You either have to totally stroke the PS3 or you get stoned to death with disagrees its soo childish. The disagrees here on this post that im sure ill get will speak for itself. Disagrees dont bother me as i never see it once ive left the page but it just cracks me up that someone cant have an opinion on here without being trolled to death.
