Yeah those are all bad things not sure what your point is? People who defend this acquisition are shills. I know that's an abrasive thing to say but it's the truth.

Reason User Banned (3 Days): Concern Trolling
After the Horizon trailer, you can be forgiven to taking a pause and asking yourself what the future for PlayStation is. If you own a Digital console, for instance, do you want to buy any more games right now knowing that you’d never be able to trade/sell them because the third party games you want may not be available on your platform? You’ve spent hundreds as an investment but now that’s potentially gone.

Reason User Banned (Duration Pending Review): Platform Warring; Long History of Platform Warring
Of course they would honour existing agreements, but once those end…. It’s kind of ironic this stuff coming from them, after how they bought so much timed and permanent exclusivity from Activision and Bungie, one month for Modern Warfare 2 Remastered, 1-2 years for some Destiny DLC. It’d be good if Warzone content gets updated with a one year delay on PlayStation, show them what it means.

I mean, I can sorta undertand what you were going for but jeez, you could have been a little less crass with the statement. You've essentially said she's just where she is because they need a random black exec. Come on now... What difference does being white mean? Will people only be happy when it's an entirely minority run business? I'm curious. What's not amazing about it? It's ok to still accept white people in positions of power you know lol.

GamingThread Ninja allegedly backed a twitch streamer who was leading a harrassment campaign against Pokimane.
Reason User Banned (Permanently): Dismissive Commentary Around Online Harassment; History of Severe Misogyny and Sexist Commentary
Well that’s the consequences with saying the n word. People are going to always bring it up whether you like it or not and even if it’s from two decades ago. It’s not going to be swept up under the carpet and it took her 5 years to apologise. Just like whenever that female streamer who threw her cat gets in the headlines, people are always going to bring up that clip. Just like these braless quotes from Ninja. It’s not because she’s female that they bringing up. I seen male streamers or youtubers who have done the same thing and it will always be brought up, when they in the limelight. Nobody in this thread is saying go be sexist to pokimane because she said the n word. Here’s a wise tip for any further streamers on how to avoid any of this. Just don’t say the n word or throw your pets around. Do you really think it was a one off occasional slip up? Like I said all three losers in this thread just need to be binned. Twitch/YouTube would be a better place without them all.

It’s how it works with movies & streaming. And on another note? I hope Microsoft buys take 2 & just chokes hold everyone and becomes the only game developer. Fucking do it! Do it & raise prices, do it to bring back all of your shitty xbone drm & practices, do it to get to make your walled garden! Please do it so I can laugh at the tears of the people who will spin that having spider man exclusive to avengers is somehow worse than having limited choices because of corporate greed. Just do it! Go full scorch the earth!That will happen, and it will be very entertaining to watch as people will have no choice but to accept it because they have no where else to turn.

Reason User Banned (Duration Pending Further Admin Review): Platform Warring; Numerous Prior Infractions
Sony is anti-consumer though right? First 7.5 billion for Bethesda, now 70 billion for Activision? Two publishers that were known for being multiplatform and didn't need to be acquired for any reason at all besides greed and platform exclusivity. What major publisher have Sony and Nintendo acquired? I wanna see the fanboys still try to push the fake Sony is "evil" narrative after this. At this point, Microsoft just wants anything they could buy just because they have the money to do it. Really sad times, and I say that as someone who owns every console and a PC. It's hard not to be disgusted by this.

GamingThread Reuters: Sony Brings A Knife To Global Video-Games Gunfight
Reason User Warned: Platform Warring
Somebody made the analogy between HBO and Netflix. Xbox has way more content, but most of it is a bit casual/trashy. I'm lapping it up because hey it's on gamepass so it doesn't cost me anything extra, but even their biggest games, Halo Infinite and Forza Horizon, I wouldn't have bought for €60. I still think Sony has the prestige content, the cinematic action game and story driven games, on lock. I have a lot of problems with the usability of the PS5 UI, but you undeniably start a premium entertainment center when you press the Playstation button. I turn on my XSX, I want to get out of that boring Windows screen as soon as possible. Sony is all about that premium experience, over Microsofts unlimited content. I think there's a lot of digital art they can explore, stuff like the Kid AmnesiA exhibition. From pure games to digital art and entertainment. Will they be the biggest like Netflix, no, but they're going to keep dominating the Game Awards and stay healthy that way. Or if that fails, you know. Vita means life.

GamingThread Troy Baker partnering with Voiceverse NFT
Reason User Banned (Permanent): Troll Account
There's something extremely toxic in our culture right now that manifests itself in people judging other people without a second thought. Actions can and definetely should be judged if they cause suffering but judging people is a slippery slope. Where does it end? I mean can you find a satisfying conclusion if you start to meditate on it? Why did that person act in the way they did? Are they ignorant or malicious? If the person is truly ignorant then is it ok to judge a person because they simply did not know? "He who is without sin cast the first stone." or something along the lines, yeah? We make mistakes. That's what makes us human. Don't condemn the person, condemn the actions and before hurrying to make a judgment take a deep breath, self-reflect a bit and inject a little empathy into your thought process. I think we could use some of that in our times. Don't fuel the flames and waste your energy on these bizarre witch hunts on digital platforms that aren't actually even real life. I consider myself somewhat tech savvy and still don't have a clue what NFT's are about. And I suppose neither did Troy.

GamingThread I am shook. The new graphics king is here and it is a first person multiplayer game nobody here is talking about
Reason User Banned (duration pending): Creating a troll thread with regards to the American Civil War, history of serious infractions
The game is War of Rights. War of Rights is a featuring 150 player battles with a focus on historical authenticity, teamplay and immersion. It is set during the perilous days of the American Civil War, in the Maryland Campaign of September, 1862. As I understand it, it is a CryEngine game. Shit looks too real, man. I thought it was my duty to report to you have immersive in-game graphics have become. Full disclosure: I have not played the game myself and considering that the setting is Union vs. Confederacy I cannot say how the online community is or acts.

It's the same group aligned with the same console who don't want E3 to be a thing. And it started around the same time Sony started having nothing to show at the event. Sony does a thing. Sony is 'very smart' and does the right thing most all the time. The thing Sony no longer does is incorrect. That is the progression on lots of topics in this space and this is one of them. It's just another proxy console war.

GamingThread Microsoft to acquire Activision Blizzard
Reason User Warned: Console wars
I'll bite, let's play list wars: - HDD - doesn't matter if the 360 had a version without it. Microsoft started the movement. - Ethernet - in every console, visionary decision when broadband had less than 5% adoption worldwide - DLCs - Love it or hate it, Microsoft created the structure for this model - Xbox Live - unique Gamertag, included headset for voice comunication, unified friends list, etc - Matchmaking - yes, Microsoft and Bungie invented this with Halo 2) - Achievements - yep, invented by Microsoft and copied by all - Parties - Discord was born here - Media in the living room - Without Xbox, Netflix probably doesn't get as huge as it go so fast - Game Pass - bringing gaming to the reality of subscription based services, with amazing value And, guess what? Every single one of those (Game Pass one is coming) was copied by Sony and others. Microsoft completely changed gaming with a visionary approach to connectivity/internet. That's a fact. Not sure if your fanboy brain allows you to accept this, but the facts are there. It's up to you to want to see it. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

GamingThread Microsoft to acquire Activision Blizzard
Reason User Warned: Console wars
This is my main concern too… their main innovations/contributions are around distribution (Game Pass and backwards compatibility). I just don’t see them taking many risks as far as pushing the medium forward in new ways (maybe the default hard drive + Ethernet in the OG Xbox? But then again, they stripped it out of the 360). They always take kind of a wait and see approach and then buy in or just copy what everyone else found successful. It’s made it kind of difficult to get excited about them as a gaming company. This is how I feel about my Series X… it’s a good , but kind of safe/boring. Not 100% what excites me about console gaming. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

GamingThread Microsoft to acquire Activision Blizzard
Reason User Banned (5 Days): Trolling, fear-mongering.
Man, this really really sucks. Microsoft consolidating the industry and trying to create an effective monopoly is horrendus for the entire industry. Im not even a console player, PC only, but even I can see that this is major bad news. The ppl in this thread who are saying "Oh so awesome, great gamepass value" are braindead and they will be the first hit by this. Just to give you a few ideas of the stunts Microsoft can pull once they have a majority of the industry by the balls (some of these might seem outragous now, but they are all perfectly within the realms of possibility for a company that doesnt have to worry about competition): "We have decided to double/triple the price of gamepass. What you cant afford that? Tough shit." "We have decided to pull all of our titles from retail and make them only available through gamepass. What, you cant afford a monthly subscription? What are you gonna do, miss out on all your favorite games? LOL." "The Xbox console will from now on be 75% more expensive. What are you going to do, buy a God-of-War-station? LOL." "We have decided to pull all of our games from steam and put them only on our shitty windows store app. What are you going to do, miss out on the latest Elder Scrolls/COD/DOOM/Blizzard thing? LOL." "Company heads have decided that we want to push our new Windows 11/12/X OS, so from now on all new games will arbitrarily only run on the latest undercooked and broken OS we have released. What are you going to do, miss out on all the latest and greatest games? LOL." <- You all have to realize one thing: Microsoft does NOT care about the gaming industry. For them gaming is just another leveraging card in their crusade to monopolise a large portion of the entire tech sector. I really really hope that this aquisition gets blocked. If Microsoft and Activision Blizzard were based in my country, this aquisition would definitely get blocked by regulators.
