    The name change was something fun that was never meant to be permanent. At least that is what I believe. And the section could easily be removed as it is probably the least favorite section among the site staff. But the section is still intact because we know there are members that use it for actual comparisons, instead of dumbass fanboy wars. But that still does not mean the section can't *poof away.

    i don't get the point of the section. unless i could cuss people out (which I would btw ), without getting an infraction.

    i have never paid attention if i'm replying to threads from this section or the other.

    though sometimes i look in this section for comparison stuff.

    i just wish we had an easier way to see which threads are being viewed the most or is trending...trending is very important, especially with a small user base.

    Some also do not understand why we have Xbox forums here either. But we do because we are accommodating the members that do have Xbox's and such. And I actually do like the comparison section when it is used properly. I do enjoy seeing comparisons because I want to see what games look and run best on which console. I am a multi console owner.

    @Lethal, oh i love those and i'm not even a multi console owner. i still need to know what sort of deal i'm getting into. if it weren't due to the comparisons last gen, i would not have even thought about giving up my PS3 and i would not have held Sony to a higher standard than they had set last gen.

    yeah, that's really the only reason i go in that section anymore. i don't intend to change my posting style just for that section. and i'm used to being nice to people so it doesn't bother me

    @Chris. it's only been like the umpteenth time i've mentioned it lol. that is the only reason i was for consolidating the forums like the NEOGAF but i understand the reason to keep it this way. we just need an easier navigation...i promise you guys, it will help the forums tremendously. i honestly think our biggest problem is organization than anything.

    Sufi,

    There are some stats for likes, hot threads and such here.

    Probably not as detailed as you want though.

    oh yeah, i've seen those. i think what i mean is, something that shows which threads are gaining popularity in those categories.

    those seem like the all-time stats.

    this way we can keep track of which threads are gaining traction.

    there have been countless times that the drama had already gone for 2-3 days and i wasn't in it. it fills me up with emotions and feelings. no one cares about comments on a thread after 2-3 days, it's a tragedy.

    EDIT: What's New takes care of that a bit but it still does not give you a good idea and it also has posts that are made on general threads that have been there for a while. i wish i could clearly see which thread is getting the most replies or which has gotten the highest views in the past day or so.

    EDIT: In other words, i want your life to be harder than it is.

    Oh, it's just funny to me. I think a year from now, people will get bored with the cross-platform title comparisons. The whole "power of the cloud" or 'hidden GPU' and "but but bu tha ESRAM" stuff coming from Team X kind of brought about a prolonging on the pain, though.

    In my honest opinion, MS should have just stuck to their guns about the general entertainment stuff and planted their flag on that. Ever since E3, they've changed their messaging on that because the gaming community has been crucifying them though. Rather than everyone chilling out, it has given people a reason to continue the onslaught. Oh well.

    Without going into too much work, you can kinda see that on the first page of each section I guess.

    Writing some code that tracks what you're saying and displays them in a section... well, doable. I did it with irshell.org. I'll see if I can find a back up and see how much code would have to be changed to fit this site.

    Hey, things HAVE to be good if admonishing the Playstation fanbase on a Playstation forum is the thing to do.

    that's what i do now but i can easily miss threads that i haven't check or were missed.

    whereas this sort of trending thing would somewhat work like a news feed or a passive notification system.

    sometimes it's very important for threads to gain traction within minutes or hours. if you miss a day, it might not be so hot anymore.

    i wish we had a way to track all of this, including new threads. new posts somewhat helps but you'd have to constantly check it and interpret the information (such as, you'd have to know if the post is being made in a new thread or an old thread...and even then you don't know if the thread is gaining traction or not).

    just a few of these (i'm assuming difficult to program for) stats will help the traffic flow better.

    you know, sort of like, coding to the metal kinda thing. we keep it tight, convenience wins every time.

    EDIT: It's kinda like the live from PS streaming channel. i go in there once in a while and immediately i know which channels are popular. i don't waste time. if i had to look at the entire list (still easier than looking for hot threads on these forums), i would likely not go in there as much.

    i go in for a few secs...i'm curious as to what is hot right now and why. convenience = profit.

    Good points. Although I think the name change is funny what you and Lefein have said is actually true. I've already noticed the double standards of the gaming press that made such a big deal about inferior multiplats and sales on PS3 suddenly downplay these things now that the tables have turned but I never expected to see those same double standards here on a PlayStation site. Sometimes it seems like out of fear of being viewed as a "fanboy" site the powers that be are apologizing for this being a PlayStation forum. lol A PlayStation site that admonishes the PlayStation community for being PlayStation fans. Go figure. And now that the tables are turned and the Xbox fans here are getting upset and frustrated the staff is suddenly considering getting rid of this section? Its not the elimination of the section (if it happens ) I mind its the reason for it. Just seems like a double standard to me.

    lol It really isn't. People have read entirely too much into this. It was literally 100% on a whim without any planning or consultation with the team. I just made the joke about the forum name in a discussion then did it because I could. I didn't have PS or XB people in mind as I went into adminCP...it was done in the spirit of satire; a playful dig at pixel counting in general.

    i see what you mean. actually, i worded that wrong. what i meant to say was that it "seems" like that it is directed towards them which is why i stated that it's a very lop-sided comparison section right now...it would give the impression of that...hence why i think some people are criticising. I'm not.

    lol no. You're acting like we're reacting based on some whiny fanboy cried that the big bad PS guys are making fun of him.

    It's not as 'measured' as that, I assure you.

    Instead of complaining that you don't get to "make fun of people" - like admittedly, some smug members did when the PS3 wasn't so hot, just man up and play your games.

    No need for "revenge" - irrational, close-minded, bullheaded people will be the way they'll be anyway.

    Irrational and closed-minded.. I reserve that term for the people that can't see that the difference between these two machines goes beyond a few pixels or the brand labels on them. It's sad when a New York Times journalist can put it better than anyone else..
    A philosophical war is being waged in the world of video game consoles.

    http://www.nytimes.com/2014/02/13/te...on-4.html?_r=0

    So, please excuse me if I don't exactly fit into the box with the rest of the rabble throwing spears from upon high horses. Marginalize, defend and hurl any platitude you want. There's no good guy badge for being a "real gamer" these days.

Nobody should care if I think the PS4 is better than the Xbox One, or vice versa. Some people actually think they gave birth to baby Xbox's or Playstations, or something.
    Yeah, don't get me wrong, I'm fine with the concept. And you know I'm all for discussing various platforms, not just PlayStation. It keeps things interesting.

    It's when the "winning team" feels the need to take revenge on the "losing team" (in this case it seems like Sony is winning), despite the more modest approach to games they had with the PS3 when it was struggling in the first couple years. I can tell who will take sides and defend their newest console -- especially when they aren't shy of proclaiming an early console war victory in their signature.

    Of course there are fanboys on both sides but I feel like ignoring the bull$#@!, whether someone is undermining Sony, Microsoft or Nintendo, is better than reacting to it.
