I've always been a multiplat gamer. I play the games, not the consoles. However, I was calling b.s. on this one. There were plenty of Xbox gloating threads here (although I wasn't a member, I was a lurker then). It was horrendous. Both Sony and Microsoft have annoying extremists. Not one more than the other.
" I was calling b.s. on this one"
Oh and you do this to every "gloat" thread in existence?, me thinks you don't hold your word 100% because it's natural to think one thread isn't a gloat and the other is, only now do you say both camps do the sdame, why did you not make that claim in the first reply, why now when you knew already?, it still doesn't defeat the eye for an eye saying, especially with pulling the shoe on the other foot.
And yes I can agree that both sides have annoying extremists but so far as the current trend is showing that Sony fans are only doing this as a result of last gens treatment, it shows poor form when it's repeated over and over, if you don't like it like I don't why aren't you stepping in every time it happens?.
I lurked here before myself, I like to keep tabs on peoples posts and form a "profile" of how they would perform (some psychiatrists also "profile" their patients or soon to be patients to get an understanding of them which is in relation to what I do on a daily basis in order to find trends and ones that divert and show behaviour patterns) from thread to thread and right now brand loyalty and quantity seems to drive people to retaliate against those who do not share the same opinion on either, like you I game where games are that interest me, I shouldn't have to pull a list war type thread to let people know what I have and what others don't because I know very well what becomes of such a thread (gloating, downplaying, calling others salty, berating those that don't stand or share the same opinion) and it;s why I prefer compiling my own game title lists for myself so I can see what choices I can go for without showing anyone and using it to belittle others.
But as of right now you're telling me Xbox had lots of major gloat threads last gen, only now do you say Sony does the same, may I ask one last time why you pointed that out now rather than at first, I ask this because I feel you don't see Sony fans really doing anything as bad, almost like you feel the scales don't weigh in the same.
