unfortunately I troll posted the xbone drm returned petition on facebook & with over 3k on my friend list I may not have helped any. I thought people could understand a joke and the difference between more restrictions & more freedom lol.  Unfortunately, I gave sincere & rational reasons for supporting it, as part of the troll.

I prefer the Multi media direction MS is going much better. Like how I love my cell phone can do much more then make call and honesty why the ps4 light stay on? Is it to kill batteries faster so we can buy more of there battery packs?

I have a XBOX 360, and no, I am not happy with what direction the MS went with the XBOX One. MS. I don´t want a multi media console! I just want a simple GAMING Console! 

PS4s RUH DAH the Xbox One!

Isn't it funny how xbox shows a "Gaming Console" that doesn't actually play games? Its more like an overpowered way overpriced Roku Box with membership fees just to use it lol. on top of that they lost a lot of fans for the path they chose with XboxOne, and also the 180. (or as jess says "360" heh) 

And the icing on the cake is the main guys there at Microsoft ONLY will make changes for the gamers if, thats "IF they make enough noise" <--- Quoted comment from them. 

So it's not surprising to see PS4 pre-orders being sold out before XboxOne pre-orders.

Well xbots had to find some flaw on the PS4 and there was nothing bigger than the "always on" light.

Feedbackula should do an episode about jess! haha and surely it would be pretty funny, but more importantly, will prove that we men (and kids) in the end, are just genetically stupids, cant help it

I pre-ordered my Xbox One from Game Stop 3 days ago on 7/12... Gamespot's data may have been a bit off...

Interesting round-up. Sony said developers can choose to use the dammed light or not, let's hope a lot of them go for the "not" option.


And that is the best way to turn off the light, I am going to try it tonight and get back to you on how was it like.

Better to have a light on than a camera on... watching you...

well... 360 controllers have always had a green light (lot smaller), and when battery is ending they start to flash. i wonder who's the genius behind that idea; your battery is running low so let's waste it more by flashing all the lights :D

@dmastor Battery packs ???  What are you talking about ? No PlayStation controller i have had has ever needed a battery pack, you just connect it to the usb charger plugged into your ps3.

@dmastorSony is one of the most media entertainment companies in the world that has it's own Movie Studio - (SonyPictures), i really doubt they aren't going to take advantage of that aspect, just because they focused on gaming(which is what should be focused on a GAMING console) doesn't mean they are going to neglect the media aspect.

Buy more batteries packs? I can see that you're one of those Xbox fans that never even grabbed a PS3 remote and therefore assumes that the remote works in the same way as the XBox one -.- 

And it is a LED light, it consumes nearly no energy, and can be used to differentiate between remotes by changing it's color (and apparently will be used to supplement games in such way as serving as an health indicator for Killzone, although i couldn't care less about this function). 

The light staying always on is not an issue at all this is only being focused because Gamespot thought it was deemed worthy of being News(go figure), which is funny since i never seen anyone before focusing or complaining on how all the remotes for all the consoles of the current generation have led lights that never turn off.

@GYIYGABITE It plays games....and does other things too.  I'm starting to think there is something in the water these days, because for people not be able to wrap their head around the fact that being able to do more than just one thing is good, is just strange.  The specs are almost identical for these consoles.  So you can stream videos and listen to music.  Couldn't you do that on the 360?  So this is just a more refined version of that?  Oh kay.  And that is bad.......why again?   No, seriously, what is Sony putting in peoples water, because there is no other explanation.

@Ninja_Danny I have to ask. where, ooooooooh WHERE, do you do come up with this stuff?  I could care less what console wins because I mostly play pc games, but if I do get a console it will probably be a PS4.  With that being said, why, why....why why why and why, would you think the xbox one is simply an overpowered/overpriced Roku Box?  I mean...no....seriously....just.........WHY????  How do people come up with this stuff????????????????????????????????????  How do people get so obsessed with one particular console?  You are practically in LOVE with a COMPANY.  Yes, a C-O-M-P-A-N-Y.  You don't find this to be somewhat weird?  I personally think it's frickin' weird as hell.

@dunkmunkey what's wrong with making a compliment to a compelling woman? If half of you "strong, silent types" would publicly and vocally admire beautiful women, there would be a lot less unconfident girls that dress like whores and act like bitches in vain attempts to draw at least some reaction from such mature manly males as yourself.

Just a taste for that Multi Media aspect that you are so focused on. Sony is not going to neglect in this department they just chose to focus on gaming more than on this aspect which is the right thing to do considering this is a gaming machine. This as opposed to Microsoft which did the opposite focused on Multi Media instead of focusing on gaming...

@gpm23 It is true that on the XBOX 360 you can watch DVDs, listen to music, and watch netflix. I like those features. However, those are small features, because the XBOX 360 is still a gaming console to its core. When you stray away from the main purpose of a device, then that´s when it hits the fan. I don´t mind if the XBOX One has SMALL features, as long it is still a gaming console to it´s core! 

 My view is because of the message that Microsoft sent out to other people. Where are the game footages? Why was Microsoft more focused on the features of what the XBOX One can do with your cable, and why just show a video trailer of call of duty ghosts during their pre E3 conference? When you ask yourself those questions, it´s then that MS made themself look bad because of how they spoke to the public. If MS would have focused more on gaming then just the other features, and not put those terrible features, then I would be down with it.


True, they did put out some info about gaming features, but I don´t think it was enough. When you want to sell a product, communication is priority one. Their Diplomacy roll was a critical fail.

@gpm23 @Ninja_Danny Why are you even here if all you care about are PCs? You're just jealous that you don't have one company to make you a bright future, you have loads that don't put the plaster on your knee when you fall over. 

On a side note, I would have thought someone who spends the majority of their time on a PC to have slightly better grammar and spelling, maybe something you should look into?

PS4 FTW!!

@gpm23 @Ninja_Danny I agree, I don't get obsessed over a particular console. However, I do love developer companies such as: Bungie, Insomniac, Naughty Dog, Nintendo EAD, etc. (ALL consoles).

@Krauklis I fail to see your point dear boy, perhaps you should go and take a lie down in a dark room and think about what you've done.

@Morphine_OD Because my friend all you are doing is being degrading, f it was a guy you wouldn't be talking about how hot he is. You would be talking about the article/video which is what the comments section is actually for, I think she probably deserves the same respect. I'm sure you  kinda guys have enough sites to get your jollys from. also its not really a compliment to say nice tits or boobs or nice ass and stuff like that.

@gpm23 PS: What Sony is putting in the water is that the PS4 could have some small features, but it is still a Gaming Console to it´s core.

@dunkmunkey Respect :) Look all you nerds! This is a Gamer with a life! It really should be more like us, my friend. And a little tip for you: "Don't get involved in arguments with these people, because it's like participating in paralymics, doesn't matter if you win, you are still retarded".

@Morphine_OD No i don't watch justin bieber videos sorry, you must do as you seem to know, i'm sure its a bunch of 13 year old girls saying I love him, but that's teenage girls, so you're saying its okay to act like 13 year old girls cause that will make a great comments section.

@dunkmunkey degrading? have you looked at comment section below Bieber's and Timberlake's videos? Respect is when you acknowledge a beautiful person. And "nice tits" is rude, but a compliment still.

@dunkmunkey @PeejayYeh Well admiration is a different thing... If Jess is admired & criticized, is that a problem? That is actually my real question...
