The good for nothing console wars

Stevivor's Nicholas Simonovski writes, "With the recent announcements of both the Xbox One and the PlayStation 4, and with the E3 conference under a week away, the fanboys of both systems have been out in force. For the last fortnight, gamers and consumers alike have been speculating about what we can expect to see from Microsoft’s upcoming offering. Will it need to be always online? Will we need to pay to play second hand games? Why has it taken developers so long to realize that all gamers ever wanted was smart fish AI?"

People who bash the Xbox One are not "fanboys", they are gamers.

What console war? There's only two consoles imo, that's WiiU and PS4.

UNGR1960d ago

Some maybe, most are in fact fanboys, you can tell from the dislikes on every single Xbox One video on YouTube, even if it's just the controller. Most don't give credit where it's due.

The console wars, more pointless of Vietnam.

Hicken1960d ago

In fact? What fact? DO you have some program that can tell which dislikes are from gamers, and which are from fanboys?

Screw giving credit; you and your buddy MikeMyers and JokesOnYou and a dozen others can't even admit faults in the damn system. It's blatantly obvious that the system requiring online check-ins every 24 hours is a bad thing. Oh, but don't worry: once Microsoft announces games- games that will need that 24hr checkin just to work- we'll forget ALL about how bad that is. And their 15 exclusives will stop Kinect from having to be plugged in just to make your XBOne work.

If they are gamers why is it more of a game to some to bash the Xbox One? If they were gamers they would be talking about games, not prancing around giving out misinformation while telling everyone not to buy it. Let's see how many of these so called gamers actually talk about the Xbox one games revealed and not just sidetrack every topic about those games into something else.

Yes there are valid concerns, Yes there are real gamers who bash the Xbox One, some have even supported the Xbox 360 and are concerned. That is all fair and reasonable. What isn't reasonable or even rational are the extremists who never liked the Xbox brand in the first place that have been doing nothing but posting all day long bashing the system ever since it was announced. Why are those same people who never had anything good to say about the Xbox 360 the ones that are the most active telling people not to support the Xbox One?

There comes a time where you're just beating the same old drum trying to drive a wedge between the communities. Where it really isn't about being a gamer but a seasoned troll.

LMAO

1st Games aren't everything in life and i do think that my rights as a consumer are more important than a few pixels on a goddamn screen. 15 exclusives won't brainwash me.

2nd The only people I see defending MS anti-consumer practices are seasoned Xbox fanboys that are incapable of saying something negative about MS and their brand so your 2nd paragraph is filled with hypocrisy.

3rd I'll talk, or shall I say write whathever the hell I want and its not hypocrite statements that will change my mind. Also I'm not just a gamer, I'm also a consumer and I'm concerned about the precedent the xbone may set on this industry so you can expect more negative (in my opinion positive) comments from me towards MS and Xbone.

Edit

David jaffe? Really? Someone that benefits with MS anti-consumer practices? Surely you can do better than that!

Steam is a service that we users DO NOT OWN. Xbone is a console and when we pay for it its OURS. MS wants to control how we use something that is ours. You're comparing apples to oranges.

Anything else?

@Imalwaysright,

"1st Games aren't everything in life and i do think that my rights as a consumer are more important than a few pixels on a goddamn screen. 15 exclusives won't brainwash me."

Cool.

"2nd The only people I see defending MS anti-consumer practices are seasoned Xbox fanboys that are incapable of saying something negative about MS and their brand so your 2nd paragraph is filled with hypocrisy."

David Jaffe is a Xbox Fanboy? You learn something new every day on N4G.

"3rd I'll talk, or shall I say write whathever the hell I want and its not hypocrite statements that will change my mind. Also I'm not just a gamer, I'm also a consumer and I'm concerned about the precedent the xbone may set on this industry so you can expect more negative (in my opinion positive) comments from me towards MS and Xbone."

You mean a precedent that was set years ago and loved by Steam users? A precedent used today when people buy items on Xbox Live, Nintendo Network, and Playstation Network? Which of course offers far greater restrictions too I might add. Including Playstation Plus, another service many enjoy including myself.

Anything else?

As I said before, people who are the most vocal never seemed to be interested in the Xbox brand in the first place.

Imalwaysright1960d ago (Edited 1960d ago )

LMAO Really youre pulling comments that I made years ago when I was nothing but a kid? Sorry but I've grown and my fanboy days are over. Supporting companies that make pieces of plastic is pointless to me at this point in my life and I'm only looking out for me. Why don't you try some of my recent comments?

Also even if I was a PS fanboy why in the hell would it mean that I wouldn't want Xbone? What you said before is nothing but hypocrisy and still is.

sashimi1960d ago (Edited 1960d ago )

You mean the Xbone is a console? i could have sworn it was a VCR with a watercooler addon and a 24hr check in to let microsoft know when to refill.

Tatsuya 1960d ago (Edited 1960d ago )

looks at the huge ass fan! who needs a fan like that, even my monster PC doesn't need it that big! Seriously, it's even uglier than a classic VCR.

fhizikz1960d ago

skydragoonity1960d ago

Whether u believe It or not the console wars exists.. The question is are u in the right team? #ps4

swice1960d ago

Like I've always said, console wars need to die. Yes we sometimes get better results from the competitiveness, but as a whole, it is an ugly blight on our gaming community. So much hate...
