I definitely see a lot of people on both sides too, and you're right that I would be more prone to notice those that are negative to my company of choice.

This has simply been my observation over the years, that anytime the established order of things is disrupted, a lot of people will always be uncomfortable with that and attack that which is seen as aberrant.

Everyone sees what they want to see. But I think what you should look at is the behavior and antagonism between the various fanbases in how they interact with each other. Do you see this animosity between Nintendo and Xbox fans? Or Xbox fans with PC Masterrace people? Or Nintendo fanbase riling against PC? Now do the same with the Sony fanbase. If we can look at that first I think we can then enter into a more meaningful discussion on why those thing are the way they are. I have my conclusions, wonder what yours are.

It's posts like this that makes me want to leave the site the most. I see you downplaying in PS related threads all the time so your post about PS users being the sole problem is just...

Screw it. I'm requesting a perma.

I cant see anywhere where I said that PS4 only won because of this. So yeah, you are putting words in my mouth. It was a praise for Sonys yearly plan that put Nintendos dito to shame. It was a poorly executed year from Nintendo and I dont think anyone could dispute that. It surprises me that anyone thinks this is in any way downplaying Sonys 2015.

PS4 2015 > Switch 2018. In Sales, in software, plan
I dont think I cant be more clear than this. And hopefully you're accepting that I by no means was downplaying the success of Sony.

Thanks for quoting me this time though.

Sorry. I shouldn't have just carelessly picked the first post I stumbled upon without knowing the real intentions behind it.

More and more threads on VGC are derailed by the same few users (not you included) whose only goal seem to be to twist otherwise positive news because for some reason they'll be damned to let other gamers celebrate their favorite games and platforms. The latest example being how Switch's record breaking December was spun into being a disappointment. It happens all the time, in PS and Xbox related threads as well.

Initially, I visited VGC to get exciting and in-depth knowledge about my favorite hobby as a break from a busy everyday life. But since then many calm users have left and lately, the site has brought me more annoyance and "eye-rolling" than joy and relaxation. I guess, I need a break.

No worries mate! =) 



Could not care less if it sold poorly or well to be honest.

Be my guest. Nothing should stop you. Or, let me extend a hand and invite you to a PM conversation to sort things out. I think you accuse me of a lot of things that are unfounded and I feel we should be open and honest about our intentions on this site. I feel there is more to it. The thread has been derailed enough as it is.

Replicant, I wouldn't request a perma as your insight is useful.  I would ignore the likes of OTBWY, in his eyes everything is all good outside playstation.  Its best to ignore his comments and report them to the mods.  Having less of the likes of OTBWY and more of you is definitely needed for this site right now.

Look, no doubt a majority are willing to accept this, but can we just cut the crap and admit Switch's sales are impressive once and for all? None of this sneaking in a backhanded excuse for why it sold so well.

The only reason Switch sold well is that it has good games that people want to play.  If it didn't have that, then Nintendo would be doomed!

But the Wii U had good games too.

The WiiU was mismarketed to the point where there are still people that did not even know it was a console.  I know someone who has a brand new one in his closet because he got it as a gift and thought it was an add on to the WiiU.  It was not till about 6 months ago when he told me that the Switch was the successor to the Wii and I corrected him did he realize what it was.

 

He was absolutely dumbfounded to say the least lol.

 

OT The Switch is selling so well due to a combination of great games that you can not play anywhere else and the convenient form factor that it has to play those games, as well as the 3rd party console games that get ported to the system.  It is great for gamers with limited time that want console experiences on the go.

Far as I'm concerned, no fanbase is treated any better/worse than the other and I see troublemakers coming from all sides. Now let's bring this thread back to relevance and not take anymore shots at each other. This goes for everyone!

I see the PS4 won 2018, and the PS4 exclusives perphaps beating Switch exclusives in sales/metascore.

Kinda, but not really.  If it had good games, then it didn't have many.
