Saw this on Kotaku, Sony exec, via twitter took a shot at MS policy of launch parity. I agree with what one of the commenters said in the comment section. He relayed that he would rather Sony not continue in a mud slinging campaign and just focus on their strengths rather than pointing out others negatives. I see his point. I always hate election campaigns that are negative and full of "look at what they do". Just tell me about what YOU do, or hope to with the PS4. I don't care that you can point out others negatives, we can all do that. This commenter goes on to point out how this behavior may be followed by Sony fanboys, and although all fanboys are guilty, he does point out the petitioning of games going multiplat, which I have only known of from Sony fanboys. Good read.

I liked the tweets he was getting back from that, people saying where are the games to prove all this support, and when are the good games coming.

Not sure why he felt the need to go fanboy on Twitter but he's in a bad position to be doing so. PS4 has no games at all, and he's over there spouting Indie crap that most people barely played even if it's free.

I like you Cain. Just not as much as I love a dirty console race! If this gen could somehow get to the SNES/Genesis level, I'd be a happy camper. Besides, MS's policy is bad for gaming as a whole but good for MS (as most are these days). I'm for gaming.

Yeah I got attacked a while back by Tormentos because I relayed what a buddy of mine who owns a PS4 said. He wants games that he wants to play. He didn't buy a $400 console to play indie games, and he was looking to pick up an X1. All I got was "PS4 has more games, higher rated, blah, blah". Guy even lied about what I said, that my friend wasn't real. I offered to put him in touch with Nelson (my friend) and reposted all my posts to prove I never said X1 has more games than PS4. I guess that's why I liked what this commenter was saying on Kotaku. Sony fanboys really have a defensiveness that is ridiculous.

Normally I'd agree that companies should focus on their strengths instead of others' weaknesses, but stuff like the "how to share games on ps4 video" and this tweet are good. Microsoft makes decisions that are cancerous to the game industry. After the sharing video, Microsoft changed their policies a week later. This whole thing regarding the tweet where M$ won't allow companies to release games for their system unless it releases simultaneously on One is cancerous as well. Competition is good for gaming, but microsoft's business tactics are bad for gaming. They don't compete by releasing good products. They compete by throwing money around for the sole purpose of limiting the industry and actually making it worse. Things like buying Rare and killing them off, always online DRM, indie parity, all this stuff is bad stuff for gaming. It's so bad and utterly ridiculous that Sony is taking jabs at them because they know that gamers like me who have been gaming for 25+ years see right through Microsoft's bullshit.

It would be one thing if Sony was making fun of a bad exclusive game on One or RROD, those would be unnecessary cheap shots. Instead, they're simply pointing out that Microsoft is hurting the game industry and are making people aware that their business tactics are anti gamer.

Gaming is one of my favorite hobbies. It's hard for me to get behind a company like Microsoft who is trying to kill my hobby and make it worse at every turn. God bless Sony for making the casuals aware of their bullshit nonsense.

Oh right, because Sony is the true paladin of gaming and can't do wrong. It's a shame that Sony does everything to make masses not only unaware of but brainwashed by THEIR OWN bullshit nonsense.

I think in the politics mud slinging you'd agree to leave out the negativity, but in regards to Sony, I don't believe you. You've shown time and again that they do little wrong in your views. Did you read the article I linked? The writer points out that MS has always had the stance of dealing on a developer by developer basis in regards to their parity policy. But this Sony exec attacked anyway.

No, I want companies to war over their weaknesses as well. If we are going to move away from crap like putting the internet behind a BS paywall it is necessary for folks to take the companies that take advantage of their consumer's passion to task for doing so.

The whole "Well I have to put up with it if I want to play X game" mentality just makes things worse, particularly when most high rated games are multiplats.

That's great Mr. Boyes. But like my buddy Nelson with his PS4, I didn't buy a new gen console to play indies. Its a nice thing to add, but I want retail sized games. I have a few, but want more. And some owners of your console want them also. Happy for indie devs but all this upgraded hard ware wasn't for 2D side scrollers.

Yea they do. Their just not dumb enough to waste them on a launch when they will be under developed and sell at their absolute lowest.

Microsoft likes to release their exclusives too early, wonder why they don't sell and then never follow up on them thanks to the lack of sales from a not yet established userbase.

Titanfall is a shit game in my books (no, i haven't played it, but i know enough from the reviews how it plays. not getting it for PC) and if were to buy either one of the nextgen consoles, it would still be PS4 hands down. TRUE, not much games to play at the moment, but it holds a greater promise. i'm more interested in Second Son than Titanfall, but in all honesty, i probably wouldn't buy that one either.

just my 2 cents for your damage control post.

Lems aren't without faults, but I think the cows brought it on them selves. Their own behaviour since last January has been horrendous, continuous and pretty hardcore. You would deny the lems an opportunity even for a moment to give a little back? And in the main thread it wasn't just them, everyone was jumping in. Even the mods were giving the cows a hard time.

And don't forget, if Titanfall had flopped, the cows would have unrelentingly ripped Lems a new asshole and given twice as much as the Lems are giving back right now.

True that, cows spent weeks claiming titanfall was rubbish and would flop, they got what they deserved in the end, saying that ht elems shouldn't be so quick to take the bait that cows dangle in front of them.

8.7 at MC.

Just saying Lemmings hyped it as the second coming and it obviously isn't. This is probably the most money pushed game since halo 3 all the ads, posters, commercials and mock ups were everywhere. Xbox fanboys were acting like this was going to be unanimously critically praised, it isn't.

It's great that the game got a 9.0 from GS for the system wars ownage and metagame but you are trying to apply that score here as if it really did something amazing, no that was TLOU, and it was actually an exclusive. Even with all that hype going for it Titanfall didn't even manage to creep into the league of the big boy high caliber games that have all pulled off at least a 9.0 or above at MC.

And lets not forget in the end...Lemmings really don't have any ture ownage at all because Titanfall is only multiplat, xbox fanboys look real desperate and hypocritical trying to hang their coat tail on this one since they claim that multiplats don't matter ever since PS4 has claimed mutiplat superiority for the current generation.

lolololol oh ark always so funny.

Sony never ever throws money around they never buy developers or ip's they never shut down studios or gut them they never cancel games..etc..etc Sony has never ever ever thought of drm not once...

lololololololololol

And the tweet is question is idiotic we all know that Sony has no policies where they have any power over releases of games EVER right?

http://www.1up.com/news/working-designs-officially-dead

""So what happened? According to Ireland, it had to do with not being able to obtain approval (from Sony) to release all of the games he had wanted. "If I can't guarantee that the games I personally choose for us to release in the US can actually get approved and come out, there's no business to be done," he said. "I know many of you will have lots of questions, and there will be some I can answer, and some I can't. Sony has made it clear that they do not want the details of their dealings with any publisher made public. Suffice to say that you would buy what we wanted to sell if we could sell it."""

Sony decisions killed one of the best developers/publishers of gaming.

Tomorrow morning the time line could change and Microsoft could truly be a charitable organization that gave every thing away for free and you would say they were hiding something, you aren't unbiased you've been anti microsoft since before the original xbox so stop the act.

That's such a bullshit excuse that holds no merit, you have to be a fanboy to believe that. MS killed RARE? EVERYONE LEFT, some before MS bought them. What exactly do you want them to do with it.

A developer is only as good as the people who work there. Team Ninja are shit now, they're a complete joke. It's the same with RARE.

It could be the janitor and canteen lady running RARE now it wouldn't make any difference. But as long as things stay the same right?

Developing commercial games cost shit loads, and since MS bought them, in fact even before with that shitty Starfox third person game on the GameCube, they have barely made a good game. Only stand outs were Kameo and Viva Pinata I think. But the Stamper Bros left after that. They don't even work in the video games industry anymore.

The last real game they made was Banjo Nuts and Bolts, but that wasn't great and got mixed reviews. Certainly not RARE decent.

Now Killer Instinct on the X1 on the other hand is decent, but that was down to Ken Lobb's input and nothing to do with RARE.

We could go back to this past gen and say lems abused cows on and on, or the gen before that and say cows abused lemmings on and on, etc, etc :P

MICROSOFT has congratulated Sony numerous times instead of resorting to cheap shots.

that's because MS hasn't had a chance to shoot cheap shots at Sony. believe me, they would've done it too.

the thing i remember MS doing (you propably don't, as a lem) was taking cheap shots at their own userbase in X1 launch event. ouch.

that, my friend, is called denial. i'm connected all times too, but it was still a bullshit decision. it wasn't for the benefit of any customer, but vice versa. not everyone can be connected all the time, even if you can.

Sony never said they would have second hand fees for games.

sure, MS rolled back with this BS, and now that they apply the patch to your forehead after they whacked you with a baseball bat, it's all good again. for me, it damaged their reputation permanently.

They have the TOS updated but just have not enforced it yet. (If you even game on console)

More like Cows are damage controlling like crazy over the fact that Titanfall has met it's hype. I know you guys have nothing to play at the moment, so I can understand being bitter and all.

Why do we need to damage control a multiplatform game.?

This is what you and all lemmings don't understand we don't need and xbox one to play Titanfall,now in a week or so you will need a PS4 to play Infamous now that is a real exclusive which one can use against another platform,you lemmings are so invested in Titanfall that you talk about the game as if it was Halo,should i remind you why the system survival guidelines explain what a multiplatform is.?

Is because you lemming even invented a term for them console exclusive if the game is on more than 1 platform is not exclusive period its need no damage control,the problem here like always is gamespot scores which we all know are nothing but click and bait by now.

MS deserves the shade for messing up so bad during the Bone's reveal and the policies it tried to pull....which Lemmings were pathetically defending left and right.

If Sony wasn't in the business to drag their corporate asses back to reality, XB1 would be damaging the used-game market and inflicting heavy wastes of Internet bandwidths on its customers with always online and 24 hour checks.

Did I mention they got cocky as **** last gen?

And Lemmings were giving the PlayStation fanboys literal hell by playing the sales card, the "last placebox" and counting up A / AA / AAA's titles to drag the Cows.

Now they're quite passive as **** that Sony its taking names in Sales, Games, taking back the Market lead Microsoft gained last gen that they so gloated about.

I ain't mad. But you skipped straight to me with 'it's SWs, if you can't handle that get out'. I know what you're sayin, I didn't mean for my response to sound like I'm mad.

Well.... To Be Fair..... Microsofts Policies Suck. And I mean really suck.... For both Users and Developers.

If Sony wants to point that out for the next ten years I say let him have at it.
