Don't just come and call people fanboys based on your self proclamed amazing people reading skills.

You are making yourself a big disservice there, seriously.

I would appreciate if you left that outside of this thread, all of it, really, we don't need it, none of it, at all.

I'm really bummed that you saw my post as offensive. I apologize; I truly meant no disrespect.  See, fanboy has a negative connotation to it, and some people do not like to be referred to as such. If you felt targeted, I assure you that I know nothing of your gaming tendencies. I'm fine with people who would typically be considered fanboys, and I think others should be too. It shouldn't be looked down upon to like a single console/company.

This does bring up an interesting conundrum, though, because you took offense to my generalization. In fact, my post seemed to have upset you so much so that you decided to personally attack me. You were rude while I was polite. And the thing is, I don't think I said anything at all in my post that was inaccurate, or hurtful.

Do you disagree with my post? This is the way human beings oftentimes act; myself included. People tend to get defensive and provide extra reasons for things.

Imagine this hypothetical situation: "Why are you coming home so late tonight?" - *Starts sweating.* "Sorry dear, I had to put in some extra time at the office, then got caught in some gnarly traffic on the way back. Lots of cops around so I couldn't text or call on the drive back." <-- The husband meant well. He didn't mean to be so late. He lost track of time by accident, but when put on the spot, I couldn't just tell my wife that I forgot about our anniversary! I'm such a bad husband. *Ahem*

Is someone's tendency towards being a "fanboy" something that is forbidden to discern? Why is it such a touchy subject? Is it because fanboys are the source of "troll" posts, and as such, they set a low expectation of someone's credibility. In other words, not all fanboys are A-holes, but people might assume that you are if they know you're a fanboy? Or is it because such discussions often turn into flame wars? 

Also, it might help if you knew that the Don and I are super tight (the person who I was posting to). He's one of the people who helped me decide on my PSVR purchase and which games to get with it, and my 4K TV that I bought the same week. He even agreed with my post.

I have no problem being called fanboy (don't think BraLoD would as well, he truly is the "biggest fanboy" of LoD in this site as far as I know). But in VGC the term is forbidden due to it being used as derogatory and usually make conversations into fights.

And I have to disagree, he was polite and was basically telling you to respect rules and the thread, while you even if you didn't meant to were unpolite and was doing ad hominem to invalidate the argument, basically "only a fanboy would find this design good". That was done in a way to say if the person wasn't a moron he would agree the design is very bad.

And sorry to cut your explanation, it simply don't mater, calling someone fanboy is forbidden by the rules.

I know it is hard to convey what we think and several times we are misunderstood, and certainly BraLoD could have been lighter on his retort to you.

Anyway I was being true on liking the design (I'm a child of the 80's and like some of the odd designs of "futurism" on the movies of the time) and my wife and friends mocked me and the design. But that is the thing with taste, some people like different stuff. I like the original consoles much more than any of their slim versions.

I for one like funky looking electronics.

Your post was offensive, you came out calling people that have a different taste than yours liers and biased because of brand prefference.

That was completely uncalled for, rude and aimed at causing a bad view on people that have an opinion that differs from yours, on something as subjestive as personal taste, nonetheless.

I have not attacked you in the slightest, and I told nothing rude about you, at all, differently from what you did, you called people liers and biased out of the blue, that's rude.

I told you I would appreciate if you wouldn't bring this kind of stuff here, that you shouldn't say such things based on things you say to yourself as some supposed quality of yours as if it gives you the right to talk like that about other people, and that you are doing a disservice to yourself doing that. That's it, no attacks.

You are doing an inversion of facts here.

Also I didn't feel personally attacked by yourself either, you attacked everybody that has a different view of yours, not me in specific. I approached you because I don't want that kind of behavior in my thread, it's not a place for that, and I would rather not have to call a mod here to interfere.

And you should really think about what you just said, if you disagree with other people, that's fine, but don't go on creating a post about human behavior that you supposedly master at reading to feel like you can call them liers... and you just gave me a completely unrelated example of some random situation to try to provide an extra reason to your point...

And I hope this ends here. I'm not angry or anything, I just don't want that kind of stuff on my thread, you don't seem to mean ill right now, but this also won't turn into the subject of discussion here.

So again, I hope this ends here.

What if it looks like an used diaper?

As long as it doesn't smell like one. The ones from my baby is enough.

The PS4 USB ports are not good. I have a handful of flash drives with bulbous plastic casings that won't fit into the the launch model or the Pro. I assume the slim has the same design.

And why do you guys buy this stuff? I rather use the slender and smallest possible usb stick available

They ones I tried happened to be old, but some of my new ones could possibly not fit either. I don't know for sure since I barely use the usb ports on the PS4. The only times I've ever used them is to upload screenshots to VGC, which I've done like 3 times.



Chinese food for breakfast

 

As long as it plays the games, I could not care less about what it looks like.

I understand you, but there are people that like to buy some very big USB sticks with a lot of "carnival" throw at them =p

I'm not a fan of it but I'm not a fan of how the og xbox one looks either. If aesthetic appeal is a cost for performance/price... That's what a console is all about.

But yeah... It's ugly and likely to change.



I could live with that, but I don't like it. Still looks aren't everything, if this design means better cooling and higher performance I could live with it.

But I don't think this is the final design. It's too early for that.



Predictions (Made July 2019)

LTD: PS4 - 130m, Switch - 110m, XBO - 52m       2019 : PS4 - 15m, Switch - 18.8m, XBO - 4.8m        2020: Switch - 22m (Peak Year)


People should be more worried about the price than the design. A super fast SSD can cost the same as a console. A PS5 will come with faster SSD than PCs have currently.

That design looks like a router.  Definitely not something you want taking up space in your entertainment system.
