I think it's sad that someone would take the time to make a thread like this.
So a few people were off on their predictions... why go through the effort to point that out?
Is it really necessary to mock other gamers because they don't see things the same way, or because
they choose to like or hype up a different product?
That's pathetic.
Xbox and Nintendo fans are guilty of the same childish behavior, but the Sony guys really take it to a
weird place.
... and for the OP, this gen isn't even 5 months old yet, at least as far as Microsoft and Sony's console are concerned. So you might wanna re-think the title...
cause it's certainly as misguided a statement as those you got such a kick out of listing.


If they just said they expect XB1 to outsell PS4, fair enough, no point bringing it up. But when someone says something like "I fully expect TitanFall on Xbox One to completely crush the hopes and dreams of Sony fans ..." or "Everyone knows that the Xbox One is the better product it has kinect + the console" ... then they deserve to be shown their place.

Whats pathetic is people defending those who made the unnecessary comments in the first place... the people who are too embarrassed to come here themselves.

So you make a thread to call out people that couldn't predict the future... have we hit a new low? I think we have.

Tuscaniman, are you really trying to argue with this? Don't quarell with them, you'll never get anything out of this and they'll make fun of you in a few months... at least that's an easy thing to predict.

For me I see it more as calling out people that keep making predictions out of there asses yet pretend that they know better than others (for whatever reasons) most, I repeat, most of the guys in the op are constant offenders, they have a '' my prediction is better than yours complex'' and won't admit of being wrong so threads like this are used to bring them back to reality but I don't kid myself they probably won't learn from this.

i think you nail it here.

..that said, there are a couple poster in my favorite fanbase that could use a thread of their own.  not to name names.  not that i have to.  :P

Agreed! I think we should have a lot more crow eating threads! Would bring a lot more people back to earth

If you couldnt tell from my post in this thread already (before you entered) I agree with you 100%. I'm loving the complete reversal in attitude Gen over Gen from the different sides. Ps3 fans talked about upcoming games they were looking forward too and it automatically meant it would sell millions and single handidly boost ps3 sales past the Wii. When the game failed to "live up to expectations" (set by 360 fanboys based off of hype levels) then the game was considered a failure. Now, the biggest hyped game that I've seen in the last 10 years didn't live up to expectations but its considered great sales for what it is. When certain crazy Ps3 fans were called out (Leo-J and Crazyman) it meant every ps3 fan shared the same mentality they did and it was cool to generalize and mock the ps3 fanbase based off their posts. The ps3 chalk board was considered hilarious.

A lot of these haven't really had a chance to come true though yet. Some of these don't even have a time cap so there is still a chance for them to come true. All you're doing is predicting that their predictions won't come true. And we all know how your predictions end.

Don't jinx this gen for us :P

Well, the one's that haven't happened, but are included, are one's that have no chance to come true OR were asserting so assuredly that the One would dominate in the US/NA/UK.  Like the One beating the PS4 in the US (possible) AND EU (not going to happen) by 2015.  Or the PS4 has zero chance at winning the US and/or UK, when right now it's being shown it has a pretty good chance if things continue as they are.

Ding! Ding! Ding!  We have a winner.

As many notice (and others ignore), I didn't really include people who made simple predictions.  For example, "I think that if MS changes their policies about DRM and Kinect, it has a really good chance at taking the US/UK."  Most of the ones in the OP are more along the lines of "The One WILL dominate the US and UK, NO CHANCE that PS4 can take them!"

Oh, and I have to give big props to the mods for allowing this to stay open and just moderating where need be. As well as to the posters for not bringing names into it. This thread is going much better than I feared it would.

Crow eating threads are always fun to read that's a given. When someone digs on old prediction threads to see everyone's predictions that is.

What we have here is an op that looked for specific posts from specific posters from a specific fanbase to make fun of their prediction.

Why no make threads about Shinobi-San failed predictions? It's the same.



"It is going to catch the PS4 before Christmas! only the PS patrol actually believe the PS4 will outsell xbox one in America."  Gotta love these kinds of threads!

"maybe US and UK!?  lol  its a given  the ps3 cant even outsell the 360 there now, with "no gamez"...  every month the gap in the US and UK gets bigger and bigger.  Anyhow there is no need to elaborate. you think that the PS4 will obliterate all before it.  Thats enough for me." - 5/18/13
