GamingThread Media Create Sales: Week 36, 2021 (Sep 06 - Sep 12) [Read STAFF POST]
Reason User Banned (3 Days): Antagonistic meta-commentary and platform wars
The narrative in Western media is quite clear, painting Playstation as the undisputed market leader worldwide, that actual information is available that clearly demonstrates the opposite in certain markets is a thorn to a lot of eyes. Even Microsoft/Xbox has to deal with this unfair treatment, despite of their immense financial resources. That's also a reason that quite a few people would like less data and would be even favourable for MediaCreate Threads to disappear just to push their misleading marketing narrative with no contradiction . Because with verifiable data you can call out, misleading narrative. That there seems to be a push to position specific corporations and their leaders above criticism is very unfortunate. You can criticise Nintendo and Xbox all you want in many threads, but IT IS obvious where often the actual lines are drawn and it's obvious to whose favour and whose detriment these lines are drawn, there is a clear parttern.

PS4 about to fall behind PS3 in Japan and selling worse than the even older 3DS this week. But we still see useless damage control arguments. The ongoing PS4 situation in Japan is embarassing especially for a giant corporation.

Reason User Banned (1 Day): Continued pattern of system warring
There are more Sonyfans in Nintendo related threads, than Nintendofans in Sony related threads...No surprise. Extremely pessimistic about everything related to Nintendo, but also very defensive when it comes to Sony.


GamingThread Dragon Quest 11 or Xenoblade Chronicles 2?
Reason User Warned: System Wars
It's one of the pettiest things to complain about Switch owners showing interest for a game and it actually is an excellent example of the bias I refered to earlier.
