I'm okay with "Wii U : Angry Bird review", "Most anticipated Kinnect games" and other news topic.

I'm okay with "debate" or "questionning" topic when it is neutral and uses enough fact to make a point.

BUT I'm freaking tired of seing completely stupid and desillusionned topics like "Wii U will outself XBone or PS4", "Xbox has had the best E3 nominations" and then "Sony has had the best E3 nominations" or "Why used-games are bad for you"...

I think that, like on IGN or Neogaf, topics should be more factual and neutral. I mean it's okay to have topic like "Best Xbox One/PS4 exclusives coming" or "Xbox One services are great" but not "Why Xbox One will outsell PS4" WHICH is completely effin FALSE by all accounts, numbers and surveys

UPDATE : Note that I mention actual topics, so it's not directed toward one console or the other. But when you're calling your topic "Wii U is a complete success" or "PS4 has the best exclusives" or "Xbox One DRM are so fricking good for consumers", in all these case these are mind/debate polluting topics with completely false arguments.

UPDATE 2 : As of now, the votes speak more than the people replying : we don't need the kind of paid journalist and PR propaganda bullshit and a forum, in fact I suspect that like on any forum these completely biased and false arguments are made by paid posters (they exist on every websites).

Wow, I didn't see that coming. A member publicly asks for all of his threads to get locked as soon as a moderator sees them.

Legend11 correctly predicted that GTA IV (360+PS3) would outsell SSBB. I was wrong.

Biased reviews are a pleasure to read. Just my opinion, of course.

To you sir, I say nay. We shant stop the banter on these trivial matters. Tis good for the republic.

Seeing as how all our threads are just taken from ign or Gaf, you should probably tell them first.

I think the mods on this site already attempt to ban everyone they could already.

Several years ago there were "completely stupid and desillusionned topics" about how the PS3 will sell more than the XBox360, even though at that time the accounts, numbers and surveys were all saying something different.



Nah, just don't get worked up over illogical arguments.

Call them out for being illogical and present your counter-argument. Either you're right and they will appear foolish, or you're wrong and they present a compelling case. Either way someone learns something.

all his threads of the last days are good, most others are not. especially those where people think wii u or xb1 will sell better as ps4 over the next 5 years or more. why are those threads bad and even "stupid"? because ps4 got more preorders from the core gamers who preorder half an year before release. something which tells us almost nothing about the average gamer and what they will buy but that is enough to already know the winner of sales numbers for next gen.
