    there isn't one really. no other media sites have picked it up.

    Sessler tweeting vague rants about how his life is over Hinting there was something seriously wrong with the PS4 and he's going to have to quit "the industry" and go into banking...

    In reality, Sessler wanted an early free debug PS4 unit sent to him, Sony said no, instead Sony set up a media event where the YT personalities and games news presenters review the ps4 over a 2day period. This was revealed by Jim sterling in his latest jimquisition.

    When gamers found out this was why he was ranting, They called him out, Then Sessler started minimizing the PS4 advantages vis a vis the 1080p ps4 vs 720p Xbox one in his last video, they called him out again. His tweets are in reference to the below neogaf topic.

    Then they're probably just as guilty as those they despise - as in lumping all gamers in those tweets (if not, it certainly looks like that's what they're doing with those tweets).

    Apparently the "majority of its vocal userbase" has sent her rape and death threats? Highly doubtful.




    I mean why bother? She's a 6.5/10 at best. /s

    What cracks me up is how he's in the industry. He reports on the industry. I've ghostwritten medical books for physicians. By his logic it seems maybe I can practice medicine. Maybe I should look into that. I've always wanted to scream "thoracotomy tray, stat!" at a pretty little nurse while some poor slob drops his entire blood volume on my shoes.

    I can see their point. It's their opinion, respect it. You don't have to agree with something stated but don't go posting death threats, get all pissy about it. It's starting to show how pathetic gamers are becoming.

    Exactly, an investigative/any journalist that writes for the financial times won't regard themselves as part of the "financial industry". They view themselves as objective observers.

    It's telling that the best "games journalism" in the last year has come from an article in the Metro newspaper - its given away free on public transport, most use it an impromptu umbrella here. Here's another they carried out with Jim Ryan.

    The vast majority of "games journalists" are not journalists, they tarnish the profession. They are "presenters" literal show and tell pieces. And from now on this is how i will refer to them - Presenters.

    Angry Joe>rev3/IGN/Eurogamer/GT/kotaku at the moment. I mean he is a loyal Xbox fanman, But when he got the chance to interview face to face with major nelson? He did not shy away from the tough questions that people want to ask.

    PSU? I read the reviews regularly, they definitely do not shy away from a bad score when it is deserved. Considering this is a pro playstation site, the journalistic integrity is high, because bias is expected, but rarely manifests itself.

    Not only was it stupid, but they're acting surprised at gamers' behavior... which is even dumber. It's like this every generation.

    The first one goes like this
    1/ Sony refuse to allow preview/review consoles to game journalists
    2/ They are also controlling how they review the games by making sure they are all done at controlled events.
    3/ Due to HDCP restircitons, any vidoe is from Sony, not reviewes (except IGN who have a debug kit gievn to them by Sony - no one esle has one).

    Sessler though this was a bit off.

    PS4 fans dismissed him as a zealot.


    Second story.

    He put out a video this week discussing the whole reoslutiongate scenario, in which he blamed MS and to a lesser extent Sony, for hyping the whole 1080p 60fps thing since the announcement of these consoles.

    Video is here:




    Sony fans called him out for downplaying the whole resolution thing.
    Then attacked him via twitter.

    Unless you attacked him via the media he was replying on (Twitter) then I think you can safely say he was not referring to you. Leave thy knickers unbunched, and on the outside (in your avatars case).

    If they were in my forum and were memebrs saying shit like that, they'd be temp=banned for 'acting dumb' and trolling.

    They can't tell us they don't know some (meaning, minority) people who happen to play games, can get over-excited and start to say stupid shit. ascribing that to allude that there SOOOO MANY (read: majority) of gamers that are doing this is grandstanding.

    Yes, gamers are generally more critical, but they can't get mad at that either.

    I'm aware of this.

    But they make it sound like everyone is doing it (in the first tweets/back n forth between them). Had they led with that, then fine.

    I think chemical weapons dealers have a more tolerable userbase than videogames
    That there doesn't qualify anything. Meaning (or can take to mean) anyone under videogames. Even "the movaority of its vocal consumer base". If that doesn't mean or allude to "most" (as they were using) then I don't know what does.

    Nor did anything from Tara until that post from shepard. Even still, that was still a bit accusatory "I'm probably not talking about you".





    no knickers were harmed at the making of these posts. Good (I guess) to see you care tho.

    These Internet celebrities need to remember how fickle a mistress the Internet is.. If they want to use it to get famous and earn a living they got to accept the whole shebang, good with the bad.. Either grow a thicker skin or piss of and make your money elsewhere I say.. It's not just the game industry, legends are born and destroyed daily all over the Internet. Acting like a spoilt baby and chucking your toys out of the pram only makes it worse..

    But really, getting shitty because he suggested that pushing 1080p was probably not the message these console manufacturers should have relied on?
    How can you get so upset over this shit? really?

    Its a tweet, you cant take a single tweet out of context, you nee don't know the background to it, and in terms who he has actually dealt.

    Huh? Who's getting shitty?

    I'm not taking anything out of context. That's exactly what he/they said. Good for them you're batting for them. Let's just hope it's better than the Blackcaps aye.

    No biggie really either way.

    It's just annoying when they lump everyone in there. Or are (purposely?) ambiguous about it. Coming from someone that hasn't made a death threat. Apart from curse developers while playing a hard game/level I cant get past (i.e. most recently SC Blacklist side missions/checkpoints on Realistic ).

    Actually this latest tweet is because he was called out as being a hypocrite.

    Earlier this year he is on stage talking about all games needing to be 1080p/60fps.

    Now he has a resolution gate video saying there is little to no difference between 1080p and 720p.

    So he has been called out on his flip flop stance and is throwing another tantrum.

    That is all.

    According to idiots he said this.
    If you watch the video, he doesn't say that AT ALL.
