Forums - Gaming Discussion - Why does Microsoft and Sony get a free pass?

Where are all the negative threads about the DAY ONE updates for the PS4 and XBOX ONE?

Remember when Wii U had one it was deemed to be unacceptable practice by Nintendo by a lot of users on these forums.

Just saying..

I think we are generally annoyed with Microsoft and Sony, but certainly with the PS4 you can just play games if you don't want to do the update initially

The issue as far as I can tell with the Wii U was that the update took forever. Just wait for the fallout when the update fails due to overloaded servers

Well lets see how long the downloads take to download and install first.

If it takes 10 minutes then who cares. If the servers struggle and its a nightmare then I'm sure they will get abuse.


They don't, as evident by this thread

Selctive memory? I'm pretty sure I've seen people complain about either systems day one patch.
Also I've heard that the main complaint about the Wii U patch was that it took so freaking long to download and people can't really complain about that on the PS4/One before even having downloaded the patch.

I don't recall the abuse the WiiU got for it, can you link me to any thread(s)? I can imagine the identity of the posters that were vocal about it though.

Why do you complain and generalise like it was a forum wide spread complaint when only a select number of users ever complain about this kind of stuff?

Seems to me like the only purpose of your thread is to cause trouble.

it  was in one of those very long threads that complained about everything about the Wii U, from hdd to missing lan ports, to trophies etc...

I am sure you can imagine who it was, it is the usual suspects who sometimes bag out the xbox one.
