So, why do you guys insult people buying a different console than you?

regsantotomas posted...Anonymity combined with an open forum with little perceived actual consequence for action certainly doesn't help. You combine that with fanatical insecurities and you have the mess you see on this and other board.
I didn't state that people shouldn't openly discuss policies. I think that it is healthy to voice dissent as appropriate without unnecessary vitriol.
At the same time, this doesn't need to be discussed ad nauseam where both sides then devolve to personal insults because of endless topics covering the exact same issues.
At some point, people need to move on if a solution doesn't meet their needs and allow others to choose what works for them without harassment.
the bitter truth is that in the grand scheme of things, the average piece of junk is probably more meaningful than our criticism designating it so. ~ Anton Ego

Because it's easier to hate something than understand it.

It all has to do with the mental disorder of being a fan(boy).

People are down on people who plan to buy an XBox One because of Microsoft's blatantly anti-consumer policies. They started with the always-on DRM requirement, and now have evolved just slightly into XBox Live Gold being required to do virtually anything besides play single-player video games (and possibly watch TV?)
Microsoft overcharges for their console because of a peripheral nobody wants, and makes their online fee a requirement to use fundamentally advertised features that are free on their competitors (Skype, NetFlix, etc. etc. etc.) And to top it all off, despite charging a yearly service-fee for these features, the box is loaded down with advertisements so they can both get YOUR money yearly, and use you as an advertising tool to milk yet more money from third-party companies.
Since E3 the XBox One policy changes have changed it from an unbearably anti-consumer (and even anti-Developer) device to being passable, but it still ends up being less appealing from an objective standpoint than PC, and PS4, where its currently existing issues aren't such big issues, and the more severe issues were never a concern at all.
NetFlix is free on the Wii U for God's sakes, Hell it's free on the 3DS, and MicroSoft locks it behind their XBox Live Gold service. That's pretty s****y for a device that's specifically marketed as an "all-in-one entertainment device".

I don't really get it.
I call somebody a sony pony when they come galloping over to this board or the Xbox 360 board to troll. They are the ones who come to this board to be dicks. They are the ones who come here to talk about how Sony can do no wrong with their "trey always wins" garbage mentality.
And it has nothing to do with them "buying a different console". I don't have a problem with them, I too am also buying a PS4.
They are the ones who have the problem with people on this board who are buying an Xbox One.

Because as humans we're naturally afraid of what we don't understand. So when somebody thinks differently from us, as in the case of somebody who plays a different console, we lash out in misguided self-defense. It's the same fear that instigated almost every war in history.
I've a suggestion to keep you all occupied...

I insult other people because I find their taste preposterous.
The fact that Sony Pony's prefer a console with less graphical capabilities, less price, less games, less clouds, less functions, and less features is just stupid.
They are blinded by the media who purposely bash the xbox one even though Microsoft has done a ton of 180s since e3. I don't even think Sony is capable of doing a 180 because of how arrogant Kazuma and his staff have become.

I have never insulted anyone who picked a system of there choice cause the way I look at it each one of them is amazing in their own way.
