I read them all. A lot of them are just honest predictions. Are we really gonna start calling people out in a community that is based on sales predictions?


It has ALWAYS been like that. Threads get bumped and OP gets mocked. Threads get made and posters get mocked. This is a public forum and posting your opinion out in the open makes you vulnerable to be pointed out at a later date. Its a risk EVERYONE who OP quoted knew before posting

Sure, but laughing at them months after their predictions? That's low, public post or not. 

Not necessarily low, but some people do take this more seriously than others. It's a formula for conflict.



Monster Hunter: pissing me off since 2010.

MS needs to drop the price at e3. That's a HUGE bad sign for MS if they can't even win on their home turf the month that the most hyped game of the gen thus far drops.

PS4 still won't win America. The Xbox One is still $499. Wait till this fall for the price cut + Halo effect. Next year we'll have another Halo effect and a Gears effect after that. Sony has no exclusive franchises with addicting multiplayer. NA will be closer at the end of this gen but Xbox will still win.

Actually, it's $449, now, with a game.  Walmart isn't going back to $499 (they have signs in the front of the store and in the electronics department advertising the new price), so I doubt anyone else will.  Are you going to drop the price cut, too, and just leave Halo in there if/when Sony wins April?

I suppose. Just felt like it was flame-bait for some X1 fans :P

Xbox One - PS4 - Wii U - PC

Who could blame them for getting it wrong when even huge companies like EA thought the Xbox One would dominate the US? At least I think that's why EA signed the Titanfall exclusivity deal and Garden Warfare became a timed exclusive, right?

Some of those people often say that all their predictions are right and never admit that they are wrong. And one poster even asked you to quote him on it, so it is really no big deal for him. Still at least you can admit you are wrong.

You could just have linked to feanors post history, same effect.

I just checked online and it was $499 at Amazon and Gamestop. If I have to jump through hoops to get the best deal then it isn't a price drop. Price needs to be officially dropped to $399 WITH Kinect or $349 w/out/$449 with. I don't care if Sony wins April, May, etc. By the end of this generation Xbox One will outsell the PS4 in NA. Sony just doesn't know how to make a quality exclusive multiplayer experience. Please don't mention Killzone because it is dead. Killzone doesn't sell consoles.



Oh this thread will end well.



Sigs are dumb. And so are you!
