While You Argue About Console Wars, Xbox and PlayStation Executives Display Bonhomie

Give it a rest, guys.

Console wars are serious business- but, as we have demonstrated multiple times in the past, this so called console war only exists in the minds of fanboys- the actual industry either has an air of business dictated formal indifference at worst, and outright camaraderie at best.

The latter was in full display at The Game Awards, where Microsoft’s and Sony’s executives were seen laughing and talking together, posing for pictures, and generally just chatting it up- like normal people do. No ill will, no hostility, no negative sentiment. Competition is business, but business is all it is, after all.

So, maybe many of you can take this as a reminder- stop taking the console wars so seriously. It’s unhealthy, and these are only video games after all. Perhaps most importantly for those of you who fight them so passionately, it seems like even the people you fight them for aren’t actually engaged in battle.

What are you fighting for, then?

    While i agree console wars are ridiculous in the sense that so much fud is flying around because of it….gamingbolt writes many articles that feed it.

    If only you didn’t help perpetuate it with some of the articles you guys write. Perhaps you should take your own advice.

    Gamingbolt is one of the most agenda driven, oblivious, hypocritical websites I have ever seen.

    Console wars are bad one minute, then good the next minute when it suits your agenda. Many of your articles contain missinformation and bias, opinionated, console war diarrhea, when you should be reporting facts and be remaining neutral unless you’re doing a very clear opinion piece.

    Many of the gamers in your comment section seem to know more than you do and put more thought into the contents of your articles than you do.

    Console wars aren’t serious but people can still debate and express respectful opinions. Just because a couple excutives from competing companies congratulate each other or show professional respect to each other doesn’t change anything. They’re still competitiors.

    Not all company executives are professional. Many of them are fanboys themselves of their own products who perpetuate console wars and encourage fanboys by trolling, lying, and spreading propaganda, such as Aaron Greenburg.

    This article is hypocritical and nonsensical.

      yet people keep clicking and reading their stuff. Go figure.

    • Starman

      Yo STFU !…. nothing you say holds any weight … you’re a joke , and everyone knows it …

    • CouldntComeUpWithAName

      Less talking more action. You talk big but do little to put your words into action. You think GamingBolt articles contain misinformation and bias? Prove it. You think that you could do a better work or put more thoughts into an article? Prove it. Console wars aren’t serious you say? Well you sure do take them serious.
      This article isn’t hypocritical or nonsensical just because you don’t like it makes it so.

  • Starman
