There's plenty of fear on this board. Just look at all the Sony fanboys in every thread on full defense. If the Xbox One didn't scare them, they wouldn't be here trying to attack it every day. When there's a threat, you attack it. Notice how the PS4 board isn't full of X1 fanboys trying to attack. No threat. Most Xbox One owners aren't threatened by the PS4. We just play our games and leave the e-peen measuring to the insecure fanboys.


The same could be said of the Xbox One fanboys, yes? If the PS4 didn't scare them, they wouldn't be talking about it on this board, reassuring themselves that the Xbox One is the second coming of Jesus and making tons of these reassurance topics, saying the PS4 haz no gaemz, and also going tot he PS4 board to troll. And don't say it's not happening, there are plenty of Xbots on the PS4 board trolling. I've seen Chrish909, ILikeGamesMan, Legend, Kcypher (aka Zephirraines) and BigSnappaX over there plenty of times.

I don't think you know what the real underlying issue is. You seem to think everyone that comes to this board and talks down about the Xbox One, or even dares to have an opinion different from yours is a sony fanboy. That is just not the case and you going by that silly assumption only further proves your insecurities and shows what the real issue is. Look deeper, kid. The problem is in the Xbox camp, not the Sony camp. That's the real issue. Your mentality is so misguided.

You say Xbox One owners aren't threatened by the PS4? Then why do they constantly talk down about it like this guy? Why do they sit here every hour, on the hour, every single day posting reassurance topics instead of playing this super amazing machine they continuously claim to be better than the PS4?

I think that people saying a price drop is negative (in whatever way) are having a bit of fun, or are stupid. However I don't think MS would drop the price without good reason. They think they need the price drop, and so soon, to get market share (probably). If you wanted, you could say that MS were fearful of losing ground and share to Sony.

This dude nails it. Describes TC so well.


Just lying to yourself and the fanbase. Come over to the PS4 board for awhile. Go through some topics. There are plenty of trolls on both boards. But you also have 2 million more PS4 owners which means there a more likely chance of it being one sided. Didnt you guys go to school? Looks like you didnt learn numbers very well....


But their are 10x more trolls over here? Did you go to school? 1/3 more owners=10x more trolls.
Herrrrrrr dem der math dun hurt my head


Are you suggesting that every next gen gamer is on gamefaqs? HEEEERRRR DURRRR LOGIC MMMMMM-GAH!


Lol your ahem is that what the person i replied to was also implying?

It was dropped as a special, then because it did so well they kept it.

Exactly, like TC.


Yep. It goes both ways for sure. Fanboys in general are just obnoxious.

That is a nice logical leap.

You confuse why people would make fun of the Xbox One and its owners. If a person buys an overpriced item that is inferior to a cheaper item (and more people own the cheaper item), the sheep that bought the more expensive/inferior item will be mocked.

Mocking them in on the PS4 board is not fun because they will not get the reaction they want there. So, they come here.

The Xbox One going to run into problems if they drop the price quickly. Early adopters will feel betrayed and potential new buyers would not trust the company (why spend $450 now, when MS is gonna drop the price to $300 in a few months....or $250... ya know?).


The problem with your logic is that you believe that the power of a console should be the determining factor in a decision to purchase it. There's more to a console than power. There's the controller, online service and community, exclusive games, multimedia features, and more. When you factor in all of those features and compare it to another console that is barely more powerful, the choice becomes completely about personal preference. It certainly shouldn't be an invitation to be mocked and ridiculed. If power was the most important thing to a gamer, they would buy a PC. I would think that any open minded gamer would rather spend their time playing and talking about games and consoles that they enjoy rather than making fun of people on the internet for buying something they don't want or like. That's something an *** hole would do.

You going a little crazy I think you hold the crown of most active topic on the board right now.


Actually someone bumped my infamous topic I already sold the ps4 now ppl are arguing in it again :(

So you sold you PS4 for titanflop? Nobody seen to care about since your own topic about infamous about to get 200 hits and Titanfail is a distant dream.


Lol Infamous: for being terrible games.
Only reason Infamous is getting any attention is because it looks good and it's the only thing to play on the PS4, the previous games were always an oversight, no one cares about infamous or it's story, only the graphics are cared for.

If the extra sales outweigh the extra money then that's pretty big, especially at the start of a new gen. That "special" could've been to compare sales. If it's good enough they'll keep it, if it's not they'll put it back.

I never claimed the same couldn't be said for Xbox fanboys. I'm simply addressing the topic at hand.

I don't think you know what the real underlying issue is. You seem to think everyone that comes to this board and talks down about the Xbox One, or even dares to have an opinion different from yours is a sony fanboy. That is just not the case and you going by that silly assumption only further proves your insecurities and shows what the real issue is. Look deeper, kid. The problem is in the Xbox camp, not the Sony camp. That's the real issue. Your mentality is so misguided.


No, I'm discussing the topic of Sony Fanboys. If you aren't a fanboy, then what I said doesn't apply to you. I never claimed that everyone with a negative opinion about the X1 is a fanboy. You just listed several blatant xbox fanboys by name. Well there's also a list of blatant sony fanboys, and those are the people I was addressing. I'm not sure why you're getting so defensive.

You say Xbox One owners aren't threatened by the PS4? Then why do they constantly talk down about it like this guy? Why do they sit here every hour, on the hour, every single day posting reassurance topics instead of playing this super amazing machine they continuously claim to be better than the PS4?


No, I said "most". There are plenty of Xbox fanboys and I'm well aware of them. That doesn't change anything I said in my original post.

I seem to have offended you with my insults of fanboys. It's as if I've insulted you in some way.

Titanfall is a terrible game didn't even pass 700k on both xbone and PC see I have opinions too.
