Major Nelson has called for an end to the 'hateful' platform rivalry expressed by PS4 and Xbox One gamers.

"Both new platforms are off to a great start. We all should be celebrating a healthy vibrant industry," wrote Major Nelson on Reddit. "Sony has done a good job and they should be commended. The hate that infects gaming in the online space needs to go away."

He added: "Sony will sell a ton. We will sell a ton. The industry is doing well...and consumers have choice."

The Major's comments come following the publication of sales data which put Xbox One ahead of PS4 in the US during December.

Larry Hyrb has always been the calmest dude at Microsoft Entertainment. But it seems even he is tired of the spam on his twitter account. Which is often filled with insults and arguments.

lol at M$ and their psychological tactics to get you into buying an Xbone by trying to look "humble". I'm already friends with many xbots anyway but I will never buy an Xbone. ;)

Anybody who can not be friends outside of the friendly console war scuffles is an idiot, he acts as if the "hate" is real... it's just like poking a dead animal with a stick though.. just doing it because we can and its fun to rile someone up... it's all in good fun. He reminds me of AL Gore on South Park.. taking himself WAY to seriousy...

I'm SUPER CEREAL it's MANBEARPIG.

It's funny how the gamers don't actually own these companies and tear at each other.

While the owners are cordial.

I bet most of you care more about the Playstation brand than Kaz Hirai does LOL

That is a very odd comparison that is nonsense.

But I think this steps from the things like the death threats he got Mailed to him a few months back. When his mail information was not even supposed to be available. Also there are actually people that insane in real life. I met a do that is literally pro Sony and one that is Pro Xbox to the point of it being scary so they exist.

StemBox is a niche market for Hardcore PC Gamers. No one else is going to waste there time with it. If they sell over 500K in the first 6 months, it'll be a miracle.

i know people who like xbox over playstation, couldn't care less, i just enjoy making fun of idiots on forums and lembots make it too easy.

But how can you be friends with Xbone owners when most of them are brain dead?

Real friends are the ones who are still your friend after a long SW debate.

Yeah whatever man.... As if the fact he isn't rich and famous has nothing to do with that.. he is just looking for more publicity.

MS's earlier schemes put the X1 in a worse position than they would have liked (which still is not bad) and now they are doing ANYTHING they can to get back in the publics eye and seem like the "good guys." It is all a publicity stunt.

Saying what I compared it to as nonsense... How so? I simply over glorified the situation (which he already over glorified) as they did with Al Gore in South Park.

Bringing to light the fact he had "death threats?" More marketing... If some psycho (or a couple) did threaten him, it was because of the draconian anti-consumer policies MS was trying to ram down peoples throats. Those people would have already been tracked down and prosecuted, or the "threats" were mindless internet drivel that were blown out of proportion by empty minded half wits that are infatuated with themselves or looking to make a scandal for free publicity.

Anyways though.. Most people have their life threatened at one point or the other. The difference? Most people don't bring it to the publics eye and make a debacle out of it to try and stir controversy to take away from other issues.

Perhaps I am looking into this a little to much... lol

However, it all revolves around the power of the almighty dollar. He isn't snuggling up to the biggest competitor they have for anything more than fixing broken public relations. Anyone that can not see that is blind. His warm "open armed" approach is bs... and he would bury SONY with their own shovel given the chance.

draconian anti-consumer policies

Sounds like you are just bitter toward MS for no reason and misinformed. There were no anti-consumer practices, they were already being done, half of which was wanted, turn out those who wanted it was in the minority but still millions of people.

The actions i mentioned also happened BEFORE that as well, so you clearly are just jumping for the assumption that attacks them most making everything you wrote useless.

#22 Edited by bforrester420 (1662 posts) -

Work on getting us some cross-platform online multi-player and maybe quit buying exclusives from 3rd party developers and some of the gap may be bridged.

I also agree with MS policies being to the detriment of the consumer. Had they not charged for online, and proceeded to bombard XBL with advertising, Sony may not have followed suit. Putting services like Netflix, which don't utilize XBL's network, behind a pay-wall are unforgivable and keep me from ever owning one of their consoles. And don't even get me started with their proprietary, extortionately priced HD replacement options for the 360...

I used to work with a lot of Microsoft software in the professional setting and believe me when I tell you their licensing policies are every bit as bad. SQL Server and Windows Server licenses, both charging by CPU Core, are ridiculously overpriced (like Oracle-level overpriced). As a result, we've been moving databases and servers to MySQL and Linux, respectively, where possible.

if anything, I'm against Microsoft more than Lemmings. I'll argue philosophical differences with them all day long, and I resent them a little bit for financially supporting a company that would foster these policies on the gaming industry when there are other viable alternatives.

No assumptions or any amount of misinformation are being made on any level. Bitter toward MS? How so? If you mean by the greedy stunt they tried to pull then yes I am... However, that will not stop me from purchasing an X1 at some point. It is business, I understand that.

I am a gamer and have no fanboism that holds me loyal to any of the big three, PC gaming, or other forms of gaming either. I do prefer physical media, but I am a moderator for a PS4/PC game that will (at least initially) be digital ONLY. I would prefer it to be physical but I understand it is an indie title.

Sure, these practices were done BEFORE... on the PC. People hated it, however it was necessary regardless of those who would mindlessly argue the reasons why into the ground. To do so to the console world of gaming? No.

Regardless of what was BEFORE or AFTER, the fact remains whether you like it or not. It is marketing. Plain and simple to see, nothing more.

I must thank you for at least being able to keep up and have a some what rational debate though... very intriguing in these parts.

And again, you have no idea where those policies come from, why they were put in, and ignore that fact millions supported and requested most of them in some form. You literally decided to randomly associate death threats and attacks to MJ with something that happened after the majority of them, because you literally are tying to make people believe what you are saying spreading complete nonsense. Yes there is clearly bias here. Otherwise you not have included something that has nothing to do with the original topic that was a failed petty stab.

I mean there are still people, investors, and gaming developers that wants MS's approach yet you are twisting it to look like it was some evil witch nazi takeover that was planned.

Now clam down...

Keep twisting. Nothing I said was wrong. You seem like a fanboy... Do you own all three consoles or a supporter of SONY and Nintendo?

You are the one that needs to calm down. Yes what they tried to do was comparable to what you described, and it WAS planned.

Yes millions of people went along with this crap approach.. Most were ill informed. You act as though I am in the minority with this way of thinking... Fact remains they failed because people did NOT want it... they didn't change their policies because they wanted to, they did because they HAD to. Sink or swim. Believing otherwise is foolish.

Anyways though, I am done with this. It is tough to have a discussion with someone who only looks at one side of things.

The competition between two or more platforms, helps the industry to move further, just like happened in previous gens.

look, moojenja, your opinion doesn't mean that much to me. I mean, look at your previous post? How is anyone supposed to take anything you say seriously? You can't even see the positives Microsoft has brought to the gaming industry because your head is too far up Sony's arse.

You are a cow with mad-cow disease.

He is right. Too bad most people (Mainly on this board) are too stupid and ignorant to want the best for both companies.

This guy is desperate to save the xbone and it's showing. In what ridiculous mind can fit real gamers mixing with xboners? They are opposed to each other, the antithesis of each other, they are like water and oil, they will implode if they even look at each other. Real gamers just can't get mixed with anti-gamers, it just doesn't happen naturally, it's against the laws of nature.

If Sony tried to pimp a limp-dick console with motion controls and multimedia as its primary focus, I'd be saying the same thing about them. The shoe fits on the other foot, homie. You are so crawled up into Microsofts butthole that you'd put brand loyalty even ahead of your own needs as a gamer.

Like your own little fellow brethren lovingly pointed out.. If it weren't for "the competition, we'd never have visuals like Halo 4 and TLoU" right? Well, then.. How come games like Titanfall are struggling to reach 720p this gen? Oh, right, because you guys are jumping through fiery hoops to justify the existence of this shit console. Even cozying up to Sony in the process of it all.

LMFAO!! you wish! xboners have been confrontative since forever but now that their anti-gamer nature has been exposed and that the xbone is doomed to fail like it deserves they are trying to ask for comprehension and friendship. But NO! you xboners have harmed gaming long enough and you should suffer the consequences! Don't try to bring real gamers down with you, you supported anti-gaming alone so you go down alone. Real gamers unite against the vermin! don't falter!

#45 Edited by Shewgenja (9637 posts) -

There is one irrefutable fact that MS, Lemmings and even the gaming press just don't have an answer to justify the XBox One, try as they might:

Last generation, the PS3 and 360 were neck to neck in terms of sales and global footprint. The competition evened out in the last two years and some change so much that both consoles remained within a month or two of sales within each other. The thing is.. One company got better from the competition, embraced their criticisms and acted on them. The other company didn't and has no view or direction of gaming in the future.

Sony got better. Started the next gen with a better machine. Even came in at a better price point. Microsoft regressed so much, lost touch with the gamers and almost went so far as to wage open war with their target market via DRM. You Microsoft apologists love to take each and every opportunity to parrot this sentiment "the competition made things better" but take a good fucking look at what you've been sold.

We don't need Microsoft or its XBox. We need them gone. You jackass brand loyalists are not helping us gamers or doing us any favors. Rest assured.

Yeah , like he said that 8 years ago when X360 literally was destroying PS3 !! But now is different right ? Since we losing lets be friends and lets forget all , the millions literally , of super trollish negative posts lemmings were writing in all big forums around the globe about how pathetic PS3 was and laughing about sales etc etc etc ...

Lemmings and Mr. Nelson seems forgetting that , cows still remember everything. Dont get annoyed , thats a payback. You need to live with it till next-gen because cows have every single right to counter-attack. Every single. If you dont beleive me , go right now and search forums ( if its still possible after Gamespots new site changes ) here in GS on PS3 release or 1 year after that. Youll be amazed what lemmings were saying. Thats all i have to say.

No, I don't. I don't trash the PS4, all I do is defend the XB1 from false claims made by people like you. I have said many times that I will get a PS4, and have never said "Fvck Sony". And don't act like this is a new thing - you were a die hard moo-cow all last gen, too.

That "TitanFall struggling to reach 720" is based on a unconfirmed leak. Second, even "if" it's true, MS is releasing new drivers. Problem solved.

As usual you are wrong. The XBONE has better exclusives right now and next year has by far the better exclusive line up at least for now.

#50 Posted by Shewgenja (9637 posts) -

I promise you, Titanfall will not be 1080p native. If it is, it will be so low on effects as to be laughable. How do I know that? Well, let's just say that when it comes to the size of the framebuffer from differed rendering, limiting the amount of data to what would run on the eSRam would be a naive dream. No driver update is going to fix that particular caveat.

Timbers, mind if I borrow that crystal ball of yours? lol
