Europeans trust Sony for whatever reason... ;)


When I went to England some years back there was a heavy bias to Sony and Nintendo. I went to italy and the bias is heavily in Sony's favor. Times change but I dont think Sony has lost so much of that bias, people are just buying whatever consoles apply to them most.

 

People in Germany buy Playstation because it's Playstation - as easy as this. Many, many people buy stuff because they know the name, not because they researched before for hours and hours and read reviews which console might suit their taste more.

Its the only console made from an American company so Americans feel a need to support it.


Has there been a occurrence of someone saying that (even online? o.O)?



Buying things simply because of their region seems kinda odd especially in this day and age where almost everything comes from China l0l.

Where something is made is irrelavent tbh, the company behind the X1 is an American company.  There is always that feeling to support something that comes from the place you live, just like supporting your home sports team, even if they trade your favorite player your probably gonna still be cheering for your jersey.  

Really why? That is a stupid thing to do if you ask me?



This is kind of similar to how the PS3 did so well at $699. The PS brand was still strong, later in the generation is when things start to change.



I dropped my wallet on the sidewalk and Microsoft returned it to me. Didn't even steal my money. Yeah, I trust them. Microsoft could date my sister if they wanted to. They never wronged me.



Twitter: @d21lewis  --I'll add you if you add me!!

A majority of Americans trusted Bush, Cheney, and Rumsfeld in regards to going to war with Iraq.

Germany is just supporting their former ally (Japan).



I like Xbox not Microsoft.

Better to support Japan than "your good friend" the USA that blatantly spies on you and lies about to your face.

We plant our surveillance equipment while we are acting like a good friend.
