@nessisonett @JJ2 I've been saying this for awhile, the over reliance in the video game media industry to use rumours and leaks to break a news story really grinds my gears. Its lazy and most of these people that start the rumours and leaks are just seeking their name in the spotlight. I really wish they crawl back under the rock they came from.

We are now in a world of people being offended for other people who they think should be offended, who arent offended.
Better to remain silent and be thought a fool than to speak and remove all doubt.

@JohnnyShoulder It’s really quite lazy journalism. It’s easy, there’s not much thought needed other than a shout-out to some Twitter drone who has an uncle that works for Nintendo. I love when we get proper pieces delving into video game history or even countdown lists. I loved the PC Gamer articles where they slagged off the writers’ least favourite Final Fantasy characters for example.

@nessisonett Nothing that happens to me on the daily is as important as covid-19. So should I then stop caring about everything that happens in my daily life? Aren't you guilty of apathy for JJ2 when calling them apathic.

And aren't the same mechanisms at play behind The Daily Mail's reporting as with this PS5 news story? Generating clicks over telling truth.

@Kidfried I more hold issue with the fact that it’s being painted as a systematic attack on Sony which in turn is another tiring attempt at revitalising console wars. Why invent conflict when there’s so much other conflict going on elsewhere?

The crowd, accepting this immediately, assumed the anti-Eurasian posters and banners everywhere were the result of acts of sabotage by agents of Goldstein and ripped them from the walls.

@JJ2 You’ve been slagging off Xbox in the articles for weeks and defending Sony to the hilt. I understand that this is a Playstation site but I’m sick of the hostility between the two camps on here and Pure Xbox. Console wars are utterly pointless and it’s not some sort of ‘FUD’ conspiracy, just a few days ago there were the Bungie rumours that were categorically untrue. It’s more a symptom of the current method of delivering news and wider ‘fake news’, of which there are far worse and far more important cases to complain about.

When i see PS5 banner strip in White color with same Blue case as PS4, i think it looks clash or kinda like Wii games with PS4 case.

Do you think White color of banner strip is right choice?

@nessisonett while I kinda agree, there is a difference between a false rumour that states one side is having disastrous yield issues, which is a negative, and saying the other side might be buying arguably one of the biggest, and best names in development, which is positive. It does seem that all the false rumours about the PS5 / Sony this time around are grotesquely negative, while the false rumours around the XSX / Microsoft are positive. Not saying it's any concerted conspiracy to damage the PS5, but there is a trend, and I'd suggest it's got something to do with clicks and comments. Psychologically you're more likely to click on and comment on a positive story about something you don't like, and conversely click and comment on a negative story about something you do like. Seems humans are more likely to "engage" when angry and I'm sure websites have learned this. Hence the sometimes contradictory articles on the same sites within 24 hours. It's not news. It's not journalism, it is simply put click bait.

Oh that's what it's about. You are offended that sometimes I say not so nice things about Spencer or Ms.
Relax man. I'm not going to hurt xbox. Its mostly in jest. I'm not into console wars and even less into keyboard warriors or stealth trolls. I always respect xbox fans and have many friends in real life who only play on box.
Take it easy. Its not that serious.
🤦‍♂️

Yes FUD exists. It's not a thing from my imagination. Calm down
And I dont 'defend' Sony. I say what I think and if you pay attention I was right about this rumour being BS just like I've been right about Mochizuki being a fraud which I've been saying for ages. Move on

Edit
And I dont give a flying 4k about Pure Xbox. I dont go on that site, I dont comment on that site.

@nessisonett But if you're so tired of the console wars, which I am as well, don't you think you should focus your frustration at the journalists, who don't check their facts concerning these kind of stories on next-gen systems, because they know it will generate clicks and fuel the console war.

Please focus your anger on the power structures at play here. Bloomberg in this case, who is reporting on nothing but rumours, because they know it will get people to read their articles.

You can blame the fanboys all you want, you can call anyone a fanboy, but that's exactly why Bloomberg posts crap like this. To quote from a classic: "It's provocative, it gets the crowd going." It gets Microsoft fanboys going, it gets Sony fanboys going, it gets @JJ2 going, it gets you going, heck, it gets me going... mission accomplished for Bloomberg.

(And no, Bloomberg isn't the only media outlet at fault here.)

@Anti-Matter I agree a bit, haven't warmed up to those new boxes as well. I think the blue and white could be a great color combination, but it just looks kind of cheap here. I don't get the thinking behind it at all either.

I probably won't be buying any next-gen games phyiscally, so it doesn't really bother me. I still have never touched a Nintendo Switch game case, even though I own quite some games on the system. I've gone full digital, I guess.

Eh, sometimes it's best to take a step backwards and not worry about it too much. Looking forward to tonight, that's going to be some real info, and not a bunch of rumours. Besides, PushSquare needs it, we haven't had a DualSense article in weeks, so this will probably reveal some more DualSense secrets. How much does it weigh? How long does it take to charge? Can you turn off the light bar? These are the real questions we deserve an answer to.

When i wake up in the morning tomorrow, i will see something surprising about PS5.
Hopefully it will be good news.

@Octane They had The Stand article last week, could have milked that for about a week.

Yep when I saw PushSquare debunked the rumour I knew was real.

I didn't expect Ragnarok this soon. I guess it will be only two games then. Unless there's another sequel. It's kinda weird going from only Baldr in the first one to murdering the whole Norse pantheon in the second game.

@JJ2 lol

A lot of stuff we knew was bound to happen at some point and some leaked stuff. It was OK. That PS+ thing leaves a sour taste though, what on Earth have I been paying Now for. They should be pimping that as the future considering it runs PS3 games too.

The show was amazing. Miles Morales, God of War 2, FFXVI and Hogwarts. Damn that was awesome!
