    MS to talk down PS4 in Xbox 720 reveal?

    http://www.pushsquare.com/news/2013/...playstation_4?

    "Controversial industry analyst Michael Pachter believes that Microsoft will "deliberately trash” the PlayStation 4 during its own next generation announcement event in order to give the impression that its console is stronger. With details regarding Sony’s impending machine readily available, the outspoken Wedbush Securities employee insinuated that the Xbox manufacturer will use the information to its advantage."

    Hmmm, it would be a poor tactic by Microsoft to do this.

    Anyone could have guessed as much, just look at how much BS and fud was said at the start of this generation.
    I won't be satisfied unless they down play everything about the PS4, promote their own more expensive BS and release a skewed spec sheet that shows them in front for power.

    Oh and they need a slew of A-list celebrities that have nothing at all to do with video games and are a bigger noob than your grandma.

    What a whole off $#@!... They always trash each other behind closed doors

    In the public eye they trash each other through power, games, partnerships and marketing abilities

    No matter what race you are or what you look like or your sexuality or where you come from, We are all the same people and we are all bothers & sisters so love each other & don't let anyone tell you any different.

    Remember you can't choose what you are from birth but you can choose what you want to become.

    Just because you haven't seen them doesn't mean they are not there we all got to have something to believe in.

    Not likely to be directly, but possibly some slight stabs.


    MS will have to actually PROVE themselves that they are worth my money.

    So when Michael Pachter said the Xbox 720 was gonna win next gen, we all dismissed him. He says Microsoft is gonna trash the PS4 and some here actually believe him.

    I'd sure like to see what classifies as trashing. I figure that definition will be flexible and stretched a bit here.

    Same here. I think that title is totally misleading. It's just more of the same bad journalism.

    They can talk all the $#@! that they want. I won't give a $#@! at all because nothing can downplay those 16 teams Sony has under their belt. A few returning titles and new i.p's are on deck and that's what I care about most;GAMES. It's all fair game tho. Sony sure did throw jabs at them and nintendo before the reveal lol.

    MS better bring exclusives that isn't arcade titles or kinect. I want to see interesting AAA big budget exclusives or else I won't give a $#@! about the 720. 2 big budget exclusives a year is not what I'm willing to buy a console for. OS features are what I consider a bonus. They will have no impact on my decision to purchase the 720.

    +1. Analysts are only "right" when they are against a competing brand. Nice post.

    Why anyone listens to Pachter anymore is beyond me. As soon as I see his name in an article, I roll my eyes because I know it's BS.

    I'm not upset. I actually think it funny and a bit redundant. Kind of like those pop up ads on the internet.

    No, you read his post and accept it.

    Getting so butthurt over something as trivial as MS talking down Sony (supposedly?!) is beyond ridiculous. Every company does that. Period.

    MS: "Sony made a terrible move by getting an industry legend like Cerny do develop the PS4. Also, 8GB of GDDR5 RAM? Pfft. Getting 1st and 3rd party input on the console is also not a well thought out long term solution. Although we expect a lot of games from Sony and port parity with the 3rd party (who played a part in its creation), apps are the future. All in all it looks like Sony is going after the core gamer which makes no sense, as MS has proven that the bigger market is casuals."
