Woo, talk about defensive.
Look, people, if Akron beats Ohio State, it's noteworthy. People will talk and there will be articles asking what the hell is wrong with Ohio State. If Ohio State beats Akron ... nothing happens. It's mentioned, briefly, in a matter-of-fact way and everyone shrugs.
Sure, you can get mad about that, say it's unfair, but no one really cares. Firing back and saying, "HAHA we actually beat Knack, WE'RE NUMBER ONE," isn't going to get you anything but condescending smiles and a golf clap or two.
Worse, the OP seems to be attacking anything and everything, like some fascist dictator who fires all his nuclear missiles at random when it seems like his power is waning. Knack, Lightening Returns, even the UK? Really? Why?
Any point the author of this was trying to make was lost in rhetoric and meaningless spin.
Kudos to you, sir.
Also, I figure I'd ask here, he dismisses the UK market as irellevent (for somewhat arbritary reasons) - but is it not technically the second largest home console market in the world? I had a look at numbers and while it's last gen (Wii + PS3 + 360) user base is effectively a statistical tie with Japan (around 24m), it has thwoarted it for home console software sales - with I think this year coming out 2:1 in favour of the UK. Obviously this is cause handhelds are so big in Japan, but being from the UK it'd make me happy to know we're a fairly big player int he console world :P.
