Correct me if I'm wrong but, Microsoft is getting their Public Relations behind handed to them aren't they? They have been for quite a while too, so it shouldn't be a surprise when anyone does it.
From the very reveal of the Xbox One, right up to this very second; anything Microsoft says has either been damning, confusing, arrogant, or untrustworthy. Knowing this, the defenders still ask the same thing: "Why don't I see ____ ragging on Sony?" Where blank represents a person or group and where the question is asked immediately after said defender provides a piece of information they believe to be an indictment against Sony or PS4 fans in some way.
Take the recent Xbox One petitions. It's undeniable that PS4 fans have trolled the petitions once they found out about them. Of course the Xbox One defenders will label everyone who dislikes the Xbox One as a PS4 fanboy that obviously participated in the trolling from the get go regardless of the truth. There is at least 1 petition, possibly more though that's not provable, that was begun by an Xbox One fan who was ignorant of the depth of what Microsoft were trying to do to consumers/gamers. To deny that is to be naive.
Discless gaming and game sharing never required DRM, but for Microsoft they are a package deal. Game Sharing was always just a glorified demo sharing service, and that aspect of it was always hidden by Microsoft from the general populace because no one would be excited to share demos. These are facts now, and hindsight is 20/20 so you can't fault some of the shills for being excited about services they never had complete knowledge about. You also can't deny that there were/are people still excited about the restrictions, or at least willing to accept them due to their misinformation.
So why aren't anyone ragging on Sony? Can you find a reason for them to rag on Sony not rooted in the Past? Any time a defender comes to the Xbox One's defense, the same tired arguments about the PS3 are made in a lame attempt to somehow link them to the PS4. Sorry folks, but PS4 and Xbox One are a new ball game. Past games don't apply.
Right now the PS4 holds pretty much every advantage necessary in the Public Eye. It has a tech advantage over the Xbox One, it has a price advantage over the Xbox One, it has transparent executives who appear far more approachable and down to earth than Xbox One executives, its designer has deep roots in gaming, I mean I can just keep going on and on. Some will try to say that the Xbox One has better games, but that's subjective and not entirely accurate for either side as neither side has shown all the games they have available yet.
What is there to rag on the PS4 about? Is there something legitimate to find wrong about the PS4 that would warrant the same kind of negative press that the Xbox One is getting? Are PS4 devs/execs purposely hiding things like Xbox One devs/execs are? What? I genuinely would like to know.
Everyone here is guilty of their own generalisations and pre-conceptions, no one is innocent. But in truth, when you see someone defending restrictions, dismissing concerns, and taking the words of anonymous "developers" as fact, how can you honestly say that you don't find people like that to be, at the very least, either completely naive or complete trolls/shills?
Personally, a game system that is $100 cheaper, comes loaded with optional features that aren't forced on you, has earned the praise of countless game developers, has executives that are willing to be totally transparent and engage the gaming community, and has a massive focus on games and gamers; will always trump a system that can't work without an add-on with a checkered past of questionable quality, services that require pre-existing 3rd party hardware, free apps locked behind ads and a paywall, executives who are either arrogant or have no background in gaming, and hype talk that's just wrong or comes from an anonymous source that will readily admit to being unwilling to back up their claims any day of the week.
So I ask you, fanboy that has a grudge and no problem defending deception, circumvention, evasion, and at one point restriction; do you have a reason for me or any gamer that actually enjoys having a GAMING console focused primarily on gaming first and foremost to hate on Sony or the PS4?
Flame on below.
