    With the recent announcement of Sony's rather questionable tactics regarding their future system, the Playstation 3, it seems to have brought out the more vocal of Nintendo's supporters.

    It has been expressed privately on our moderation forum and now I've decided to basically make a little request:

    No more threads about how Sony stole/borrowed/ate/drank/pissed-on/shit-all-over/tricked/aroused/whatever anything about Nintendo.

    Why am I focusing on the Sony portion? Because no one in here is making a thread a day regarding how Microsoft buys out all their competition or completely burries them in the PC side of things. Because no one mentions how Apple has bastardized the MP3 market with questionable products in terms of QC and even more shoddy customer service when it comes to those questionable products.

    Because it's starting to become obvious that there's a select few in here who are enjoying every single second of the opportunity to bash on Sony :)  And while I mostly agree with their statements (to a point), that doesn't mean I want to read a different thread about it everyday.

    So let's tone down how evil companies are and go back to the things that this forum became so fun and popular about - video games and anime!

    I could be called a Nintendo Fanboy at times (hey, I love their stuff), But this is well needed. I too am sick of seeing stuff about how Sony ripped off Nintendo, or how Sony sucks. Who cares...

    Microsoft still sucks though, right? :p  I personally don't hate Sony at all, I love my PS1 (and two TVs!), it's played almost as much GC. Despite their uh "shadyness" this go around; I'm really looking forward to a really good console race. I hope with Nintendo stepping up, Sony does so as well, and Microsoft continues to do so. Hell, for the first time ever I'm considering an X-Box.

    It's a good time to be a gamer. Unless, you're a fan on Nokia and the N-Gage, of course.

    I don't think ANYONE is a fan of the N-Gage.

    And yeah, if anything this one will be a much closer race then the last, which means everyone should be trying harder. Better stuff = win win situation.

    Me? I'm enjoying quietly watching Sony wallow in the bed they made for themselves. But I agree that there's no need for redundant threads.

    They're just making it so EASY right now. I mean, they've even started posting negative press about themselves on their website. I imagine there won't be anything new for awhile that couldn't fit into one of the existing threads though.

    Now we can all get back to what truly matters in life:

    Bashing the s**t out of the game.com. :p 

    It just may be the one product that gets even less love than the N-gage. And the root of all evil, or of really bad ports.

    I didn't create my thread bashing Sony for ripping off Nintendo, but to point out that they are so hard up for news that they posted negative news on their site.

    It just seems silly.

    Bashing aside it is funny how the most hyped system and most dissed system pretty much switched spots after E3.

    All I will say is that Sony did not make any new friends at E3

    Sooooo. I take it this means that pissy comments about Nintendo will also be dealt with?
    Or is this simply a "lay off Sony" move?
