http://www.examiner.com/article/sony-takes-shot-at-xbox-one-hours-before-console-s-launch

And I quote

The Sony social marketing team posted an image of the Playstation 4 on Facebook with the message, "Why settle for 720p next-gen games when almost every PS4 game supports full native 1080p? See what PS4 owners are saying:http://playstation.greatnessawaits.com/."

So Microsoft was nice, and Sony is scared out their minds and tries to pull a Kennedy. Huh, interesting. Maybe Sony does not like being a good sport?

Well either way, one thing is correct, PS4 and X1 are the only good consoles Systems that will be available. So you are going to end up buying both anyway. Regardless of this cheap shot.

Low blow, but whatever. It'll be forgotten in a week or two.

It's a marketing campaign just like what Microsoft is doing.

Get over it.

Cheap shot?

You gotta pay $100 more to take a shot a xbox 720p though...

#7 Posted by Krelian-co (10359 posts) -

#8 Posted by Shewgenja (8441 posts) -

I suppose all the yahoo articles about Amazon reviews of the PS4 getting 1 Star was MS playing nice?

Bitch pleeeease.

#9 Posted by AppleFan1991 (3037 posts) -

Here's something. AFTER the Playstation launch, Microsoft said "Good launch" and you are pissing and moaning because Sony isn't saying "good launch" BEFORE the actual launch? ok, got it.

Do you ever stop licking pictures of imaginary animals? Or perhaps your parents won't buy you that phone because you are not old enough?

Yeah you do say a launch was good AFTER the launch because that is when the launch happens. I know you're chellenged but damn.

Not really when XB1 can do 1080P 60fps as well. lol!! Of course they don't mention XB1, so they could mean the Wii U or some other console. Maybe that's the case.

I would be scared to if MS suddenly became nice all of a sudden. Today MS opened an anti-google merchandise store for goodness sake.

Good call Sony, some people don't know how weak the Xbone is.

#20 Posted by TheTruthIsREAL (759 posts) -

Sony told the truth

#21 Edited by gMcR (216 posts) -

Amusing. Hopefully MS will respond with something clever, though I doubt they can.

You are missing his point I believe.

#23 Posted by AmazonTreeBoa (16745 posts) -

I am not buying both. PS4 only for me to sit beside my PC. I just don't have time for three systems, so I have to cut the weakest link out. For me, that is the X1.

No you are clearly the challenged one. Please continue to be stupid in every thread you post in. You can't even tell time. Begone alt.

Yes, clearly an Alt that I have been using for 4 years and have 1400+ posts on. Also, again, read this slowly. YOU ARE MAD BECAUSE SONY ISNT SAYING GOOD LAUNCH TO M$ WHEN THEY HAVENT EVEN LAUNCHED YET.

Sony assasinated the xbone back in E3. This gen winner is already out the xbone is only relevant to irrelevant people. Sony is just laughing at the bones of a carcass.

#32 Posted by danjammer69 (4108 posts) -

Low blow, but whatever. It'll be forgotten in a week or two.

lol, Microsoft does this type of stuff all the damn time. But I agree, it will blow over.

When it comes to PC/Mobile wars, MS are being downright nasty when it concerns Google.

They even have part of their store dedicated to crappy merchandise trashing Google. Funny thing is that some of the stuff MS is saying they themselves are guilty of to an even higher degree.

Let's take a look at just how classy Microsoft can be when they are threatened:

haha, that is so pathetic, it's hilarious!

#35 Edited by SirBrandt (60 posts) -

I agree with Sony, why would anyone settle for 720p when there is 1080p???

#36 Posted by YD_11 (1624 posts) -

Meh.. Maybe Sony should worry more about getting some games worth playing in 1080p before touting it.

Yep... I'm not sure why you needed to try so hard.

Taking your question in the most literal sense... Why accept consoles over the PC?

#39 Edited by Douevenlift_bro (5032 posts) -

HMMMMMM... ITS ACTUALLY TRUE!

Looks like another case of lems hating on facts lol.

As evidenced by ryse, cod, assassin's creed 4, bf 3 and almost every game that came out at sub 1080p on xbone?

Face it if you want to run games at true 1080p hd your choise is ps4, its obvious xbone cant handle the more demanding games at 1080p

Ehh, Microsoft can't be pissed by low blows when they have that Scroogled campaign going on.

#44 Posted by XboxDone74 (2047 posts) -

Good on Sony. They should beat the drum on all the advantages ps4 has. Playing nice isn't how you compete.

#45 Posted by kuu2 (6958 posts) -

Typical Sony.........

Is Kutaragi still running the PlayStation department.

#46 Posted by Murderstyle75 (4165 posts) -

@Merex760:

Not to mention Microsoft started the low blows, seven years ago with Peter Moores Wii60 campaign where he said you could own an X360 and a Wii for cheaper than a PS3. I'm assuming most Lems here aren't old enough to remember that.

#47 Edited by j2zon2591 (2239 posts) -

MS is nice by lying in your face with the resolution difference/being disingenuous about it

http://www.dualshockers.com/2013/11/21/xbox-exec-the-ps4-isnt-more-powerful-xbox-one-is-more-powerful-due-the-power-of-the-cloud/

The PS4 isn’t more powerful. There is some confusion about the difference in the number of pixels, but the resolution of some games is defined by the publisher, not by the console. Especially thanks to the power of the cloud - we installed 300,000 servers – the capabilities of the console are multiplied by four. So if you connect the console to the Internet, then the Xbox One is the most powerful.
