Wouldn't it be better if instead of making the thread, that he would post a comment on the Xbox Empire thread? It would certainely receive more coverage and all of this would've been avoided.
Only several people who own Xbox Ones here are actually in the Empire thread. Putting this in the hot topics gives him the opportunity to get more friends. Since when was it wrong for people to make threads about getting a new console?
I never said it was wrong. But he was careless with the thread title wording. If his intention was only to say he got an Xbox One and ask people to add him, he could've said it so. Who needs to know he gave away his PS4? No one. People in here can get pretty irked for things like that, so everyone needs to know not to make a baity title. It's on the rules. The title could've gone like "Just got an Xbox One!" and the gamertag on the OP, for anyone who wants to add him. And yes, this thread is a Microsoft discussion. Why add PS4 in the title of the thread? Just some constructive criticism.
