I know you mods might lock this but I couldn't ignore it so I hope you guys let it breathe just a little bit. If you don't oh well I just wanted to get this out there because everything said in that article is the truth. This is something that has popped up before but more people are taking notice.

Let's be honest. Sony fanboys just seem to be getting worse.

Although more or less accepted here it has to be said that you guys act like a bunch of dunce cavemen across the web.

....and yes to any neutral third party I believe looking to have a neutral conversation and who may be new to gaming only to be constantly bombarded by cavemen who don't agree with their Caveman Playstation Love mentality well then yes it can tarnish the playstation brand for a newcomer.

So to the non-cows do you agree with this?

Luckily for me I decided a while ago that although I despise Sony fanboys with a passion I love my hobby 10 times more which is why yes I've owned a ps1 ps2 and ps3 and yes will eventually possibly pick up a ps4 despite my preference for the Xbox.

This is why this tarnishing perception I think will obviously have less effect on people who have played games for years than those who are new to the industry.

But in any event do you guys actually take a look at how you guys act? Quite funny yet sad at the same time.

Don't worry OP, you're just as bad.

#5 Posted by PrincessGomez92 (3715 posts) -

Yup, I would hate to be associated with them.

all fanboys are bad, but PlayStation fanboys are exceptionally bad

#7 Posted by Nengo_Flow (10107 posts) -

Seeing how SONY listens to them and how they make the best gifs around, I would say they are a great asset to SONY.

M$ wishes it had such a loyal supportive and loving fan base.

Only as much as the other fanboys tarnish the other brands, in all honesty I think the Microsoft PR people do more damage then the fanboys... they have the most annoying spokesmen, they seem like such tools and complete tourists.

#9 Posted by Telekill (4925 posts) -

Fanboys tarnish everything. It doesn't matter what they are fanboys of.

#10 Posted by XxR3m1xInHDn3D (1967 posts) -

Couldn't agree more. I have no problem with them on system wars because this is the place to act like that but I have even come across them in my local game store trying to "convert" me to Sony when I already own all the damn Playstation systems aside from the Vita but I'm not some blind fanboy like he was.

I believe hardcore lems are just as bad as hardcore cows. Pretty amusing to see kids insulting each other on a personal level... Over a piece of plastic

#13 Posted by kingtone85 (47 posts) -

Sony fanboys make me not like a brand I have been playing since the original station.

#14 Posted by Suppaman100 (4051 posts) -

Well, cows have so much ammo now...It's too easy to own the Xbone 720p.

Lemmings, sheep have nothing.

butthurt lem alert! Suicide-watch engaged.

#16 Posted by BattlefieldFan1 (846 posts) -

The difference between SONY fanboys and Microsoft fanboys is that SONY fanboys defend the best product on the market and thus, their actions are logical and excusable.

Microsoft fellatio force defends the inferior choice, and so their actions are irrational and not much different than what a troll would do.

Which is more annoying?

If you're actually letting some idiots (who are there and just as bad for all fanboy groups, gaming and other) on the internet who want this to be a competition to the point it turns them into idiots influence your opinion of the brand... Then you're an idiot yourself.

Or you're just a fanboy of some other group trying to act like some innocent victim.

#18 Posted by charizard1605 (59752 posts) -

Yes.

#19 Posted by StrongBlackVine (8418 posts) -

Payback is a bitch for the all the trash 360 players talked last gen.

#20 Posted by edidili (3449 posts) -

They tend to be very loud. All you have to do is open an xbox video on youtube. I mean seriously, wth are they doing on those videos anyway.

I can't imagine Nintendo fanboys for example to act like that, even hermits usually just repeat the mustard race and that's all. Man are cows dirty and loud though.

you just nailed it with that.

#22 Posted by freedomfreak (41964 posts) -

No.

I don't consider sending out death threats to developers for going multiplat as "tarnishing their brand".

That's funny because I keep running into lemmings talking shit on PS4 and Killzone videos on YouTube. Mostly spreading damage control because they have no real ammo now.

Yes, people's opinions make me hate brands.

Lol what?

@Gue1:

Lol I was waiting for this response. Meanwhile in that same article he talks about someone who threatened somebody else for criticizing their plastic lover.

So you tell me who's the one that should be on "watch" or institutionalized? Like I said funny and damn sad at the same time.

I didn't hate Xbox until I found this forum a couple of years ago. I hate Xbox for other reasons in addition to the lemmings though.

#29 Posted by AmazonTreeBoa (16745 posts) -

No more than Microsoft fanboys tarnish the Xbox brand.

#30 Edited by PrincessGomez92 (3715 posts) -

All the fanboys are bad, but the cows are by far the worst. Worst fanboy group I've ever seen.

I guess. I don't think cows and lems are a vastly different though. Since their consoles are pretty much the same thing they attract the same userbase, that angry teenager. Although lems tend to have some casual bro shooters which don't really stay on the web and trash talk all day on platform wars. Cows had to suffer for quite a while an inferiority complex with PS3 and now finally are blowing all that anger out. They seriously can't control themselves.

just wait. Soon you guys will disappear from this board. You can't fight a fight with no ammunition and it's obvious that lems are almost out of ammo. ;)

#33 Edited by SuperCowElitist (730 posts) -

I'm very proud that a company such as Sony has enthusiastic fanboys such as myself supporting them. That's why I love being a cow, we just don't defend sony with words, we'll take that shyt to the next level. It's a shame that Microsoft have a bunch of supporters who go into hiding when bad PR comes around. You will never see us Cows turning our back on Sony.

Live for Sony. Fap to Sony. Die for Sony. Thank you Sony.

#34 Posted by clone01 (25057 posts) -

Not really. Outside of this place, a lot of gamers have a preference, but they don't act like raving lunatics. And really, Lemmings, Sheep, and Hermits are just as bad as Cows. Just replace one piece of plastic for another.

#35 Posted by shawn30 (4367 posts) -

There's so much pure truth in that article. I know diehard PC and Nintendo fans that don't give a damn what MS does or want a MS system. But they don't give a crap why someone else does, nor do they try to force them to justify their purchase. They don't attempt to skew every single article written about MS to be negative because they don't see the need to post them since they don't want the system. Sony fans do seem to me feel the need to bash anything MS related no matter what.

#36 Posted by greensand24 (394 posts) -

@Heil68:

You're a fucking moron. So you condone fanboyism that gets to the level of someone threatening someone else? Yes I'm so butthurt...

Please do not develop any more offspring if you've started already.

LMAO enjoyed reading this sublime butthurtery.

#38 Posted by Heil68 (46199 posts) -

@greensand24:

You sound upset. I think you take this place too seriously and have developed love for pieces of plastic. Try to Live, Learn and Love and you'll see dramatic differences in your life.

While I think the average cow rode the short yellow bus to school, I think the greater injustice on this forum are the idiots that pretend to be neutral and even worse pretend to be above fanboy wars and look down on everyone else. If that was the case then their entire presence on System wars would be meaningless.

ikr? Why cant everyone just post with truth and justice in their hearts. Hopefully someday we'll see that.

Indeed, it's scary how fanboyish he his. There's this crazy dude in my town that most people know and will cross the road to avoid him, it wouldn't surprise me if Brofists is that dude in his hometown.

Have you never heard of an opinion? Just because you believe the PS4 is the best product, that doesn't make it true for everyone. I honestly do not see the PS4 as the superior product.

It lacks games that I enjoy, and multimedia features that its competitor has. I don't buy consoles for raw power, because I have that in my gaming PC.

Its all about perspective man, I looked at both of the consoles, did a lot of comparing, and made an educated choice based off of what my brain knows as being the best. And IMO X1 is a better choice, at least until Sony comes out swinging with big exclusives (<3 Naughty Dog)
