Lovin the hypocrisy for next-gen online philiosophies........

#1lp913Posted 2/21/2013 3:01:06 PM
Remember how a LOT of people here were raggin on Nintendo for not having their online? With up to par features particularly accounts (although Nintendo is still supposed to be working towards this in this gen), then the nitpicky whining about the updated VC for Wii U, and the overzealous backlash for the minuscule VC fee despite the fact their are other breaks to go along with that in the process (30th Anniversary .30 deals, Deluxe Digital Promotion, near FULL BC Wii transfer, etc.).


It was ALWAYS compared to Sony, who does have a damn good PSN service for PS3. Now enter PS4, where I didn't think it was possible, but they actually did worse than Nintendo (Retail PS3 as well as PS3 PSN purchases are completely incompatible with the new hardware, even Dualshock 3 is incompatible with PS4, though I guess that makes sense in the bigger scheme of things as well). Oh and for those that REALLY want to dispute this, take it up with IGN, TONS of incompatibility stories there.....


So Sony are forcing their PS3 players to keep their PS3 for all things PS3 even though it makes logical sense for people to expect (especially when you factor in the superior PSN service) that at LEAST the PS3/PSN software should be compatible on PS4, hell they're still using a BLU-RAY drive on the thing! Plus, for PSN purchases NOT to be compatible or transferred over from PS3 screams definite WTF?


I'm calling out the hypocritical double standard when its Nintendo vs. other companies online because for some very strange reason, the outcry and the backlash for Sony's misguided efforts (especially from nearly all the Sony fans and the rest of the jaded misinformed gaming media for that matter) are no where near as LOUD nor as CRITICAL compared to even the smallest of Nintendo's own past mistakes. Actually excusing this fact and going with the lame excuse of "im buying PS4 just for the PS4 games" COMPLETELY goes against all the jaded nonsensical bragging Sony fans have made about the absolute convenience of the PS3. So what's unacceptable for Nintendo is just OK for Sony now? SMH PLEASE............


So for all the haters who want to keep knocking on Nintendo for not having the same type of online service as the others, I seriously suggest you take a nice hard look at your own favorite next-gen hardware before proceeding further, cause it looks like you have NOTHING else of validity to discuss as far as next-gen online goes.......

What it hurts more is the digital aspect, I mean, I understand the PS3 part, machine is build different and all that, but digital games? Things like Braid and stuff, donīt tell me the PS4 canīt emulate those? Those are even Xbox games, meaning is does no use the PS3 weird architecture...

The lack of digital compatibility especially for PSN standards is whats REALLY mindblowing here, couldn't believe it myself when I first read about it!
