IGN has been pretty fail lately, though they've also had some great redeeming moments in there. This was one of their fail moments. They did as good a job as anyone could have in categorizing the consoles, but it was a poisonous, stupid, and hit-generating flamebait strategy from the start.
They also lose respect every day they keep asshats like Goldstein and Hatfield around.
