Is it just me, or are Sony fans harassed the most?

My boy always talks about how much he loves PlayStation and Sony's first-party lineup at school, and he ends getting beat up and called "Sony pony" for it all the time.

Is the problem with the Sony fan or is it all just the Nintendo/Microsoft fans?

He actually gets beat up? Right. I am calling troll on this one.

It's just little bruises and whatnot. Nothing too serious.

I'm not sure if they're harassed the most or not, but I know that Sony fans all seem to carry an air of superiority to them.

They made this huge deal about how powerful the PS3 was before it came out and how amazing it would be, and it's really just another console. I have one, I like it for the exclusives, and that's about it. I prefer to use my 360 for everything else, just because. I have some friends though that are too cheap to pay for Xbox Live (that's literally their only issue with 360) and they feel the PS3 is superior simply due to its free online service. There is no way to even argue that Xbox Live is a more stable, integrated service with them. They're stubborn and ignorant. So if your son is like them, I can see why he's getting beat up (but really, check that out. Bullying isn't cool).

You're kidding right? People at that school really take video games that seriously?

I boosted some of my trophies. Please, judge me about it.

If he's really getting beat up about it it's probably because he's acting like a smartass.

In SA2, it's Super Sonic and Hyper Shadow.

You can find fans like that for anything. Microsoft, Nintendo, Apple, their favorite sports team, their favorite car manufacturer, etc., etc. Are you saying that there are just more Sony fans that are like that than there are Nintendo and Microsoft fans? Because I find that hard to believe.

Xbox, PC and Nintendo fans are harrassed and beaten by the dozens but Sony fans by the hundreds.

This is not a good time to be pure Sony. Chances of survival are very low.

Tell him to stop playing games so much and hit the gym. That would end his problems right there.
