    Microsoft: both PS4 and Xbox One will "sell a ton", online hate "needs to go away"

    For once I actually agree with Major Nelson...Microsoft took jabs at Sony when the Xbox360 came out, Sony took jabs at Microsoft when the PS4, now it is time to stop all the BS, respect each other and play some GAMES!

    http://www.oxm.co.uk/69631/microsoft...ds-to-go-away/

    This morning it was revealed that the Xbox One was December 2013's best-selling home console in North America. In related news, the internet has become a cauldron of fire. Now, Microsoft's PR chap Larry "Major Nelson" Hryb has taken to Reddit to applaud PS4's success, calling for diehards on both sides to cool their jets.
    According to Nelson, we should all just be glad that the consoles are selling well, whichever machine we favour. "Both new platforms are off to a great start," he wrote. "We all should be celebrating a healthy vibrant industry. Sony has done a good job and they should be commended. The hate that infects gaming in the online space needs to go away." Daww.
    "Sony will sell a ton," Hryb added down the page. "We will sell a ton. The industry is doing well...and consumers have choice."
    This echoes recent comments to OXM by Microsoft Studios headman Phil Spencer, who said of Sony that he "really respects their focus on investing in new things and creative things". Spencer also had praise for Nintendo, observing that "their first-party is such an amazing asset."
    There was certainly room for doubt about the fortunes of both Xbox One and PS4 last year, given slumping sales of big budget console blockbusters. As Bioshock Infinite designer Shawn Elliot told OXM last January, "where games are at now - the big budget games - you have the potential to be extraordinarily and unpredictably successful, but the risk, the bet you're taking is that you can also fail utterly."
    Some argued that the general sales decline had more to do with the age of the supporting platforms. Others claimed, however, that consumers had simply fallen out of love with the idea of a console full stop - lured away by powerful smartphones and tablets. Fortunately, the optimists appear to have prevailed: Microsoft has now sold well over three million Xbox One units worldwide.
    The problem of "online hate" is another kettle of fish, of course. I spoke to a number of developers about how they deal with toxic rancour back in 2012. The answers in brief: angry people may shout louder, but they aren't the majority, and the situation is improving.
    In the spirit of Nelson's remarks, here's your agenda for the afternoon: find a PS4 or Wii U owner and give him or her a nice, big hug. I'll start by hugging Joe Skrebels, former OXM intern turned Official Nintendo news editor - hopefully, he won't think I'm just trying to steal his wallet.

    I guess Major nelson felt he needed to respond from the twitter hate he got after he posted xb1 US sales figures. All that crap from both sides need to stop. I place a lot of the blame on gaming journalism.

    Yep, gaming journalist do alot to stir the pot with bait articles that often have baiting and sensationalist headlines. Both consoles are and will continue to sell very well which means a healthy industry. Gamers are the winners here.

    I don't think that question can ever be answered.

    Props for Nelson though.

    I thought you liked to be hugged from behind.


    Anyways... Major Nelson is right. To me, preferring a platform shouldn't have to be an excuse to trash another. It's the same thing that pollutes the iOS vs. Android crowds.

    And thats why MS get so much hate lately. The typical reaction for this company: If you canīt beat them, buy them. MS always threw money on everyone and everything that stands in their way. Yes other companies doing that properly too but for now our hate is concentrate on MS and they deserve every bit of it.

    Not long ago when Xbox360 beat the crap out of PS3, MN and all the other spokesman from MS had no problems to bash their competitors and put fuel into the fire when ever they could. Pathetic how they now claiming peace and happiness for everyone.

    You just said other companies did it. How are MS spokespeople any worse than Sony's people trash talking during those same years? You want to conveniently forget the shots they took at both MS and Nintendo. It's business. Nobody is any worse of a trash talker than the others. You talk up your products and downplay the competition's products. Happens all the time.

    You just said other companies throw money too. Where's your hate for the money Sony has thrown around? Those PS3 DLC exclusives or timed exclusives were due to Sony money-hatting publishers. Sony bought Gaikai even though they could have come up with their own game streaming technology. I guess if you can't beat them, buy them. Pot... meet kettle.

    The jabs need to keep on going. I remember during the PS3 and 360 wars Microsoft didn't let up one bit and neither did the stealth trolls.

    Funny how Major Nelson was a major $#@! talker when the 360 was king. Now the One is getting some MAJOR competition in the form of the PS4 and now his stance is "can't we all just get along?" What a tool. These "warz" are fueled by the gaming media's chicken$#@! attitude towards the new consoles. EVERYONE knows which console is packing the most horsepower, but they always say that this isn't the case. There is so much misinformation out there because these sites don't wanna piss of MS or SONY. So that just leaves gamers to educate the masses, and that's never a good thing when it comes to new consoles. And for the record, I own both systems.
