Great article and I am laughing how the ps3 fanboys are playing right into it. All fanboys are annoying but this guy is right on, PS3 fanboys take the cake. At least you girls should be happy your toy of choice (ps3) is going to outsell the other toy of choice (x360) this holiday season. Rejoice! Rejoice! Just for kicks one of you Sony fangirls tell me why I would pay $249 for a psp go vs $50 more for a ps3? HA

Shepherd, you make entirely too much sense. Stop it this instant.

If I have to comment on this unfortunate thread (which I do), let me list some basic fallacies:

1. M. turned the title from the article's title "Fact: PS3 Fanboys are the Worst" to "Fact: PS3 Fans are the Worst". Subtle difference, but the two groups are not equal.
2. The 'article' itself is not fact, but opinion. Sure, he makes a feeble attempt at gathering fact to support his opinion, but in the end it's all just opinion. If I wanted to write an article about how Wii fanboys have all had frontal lobotomies, I'm sure I could make some loose association with fact as well, but in the end it's rubbish.
3. The population who inhabit internet forums is by no way a reflection of reality. Anyone who believes that is an utter moron. If I wrote an article about how 360 owners have small reproductive organs, I'd get a bunch of angry emails from 360 owners. Do I then turn that into 'fact' that 360 owners are all sensitive about the size of their penises? That is essentially what he does in his blog post.
4. For as much as M. wants to claim that he wants to talk games, 90% of what he posts are snipes at PS3 or PS3 owners. And that's a fact.

Let me also go on record to say that I find posters like RMS, Gaffe, and I. Flores as annoying as DoC, M, Trevor Gowe. Fanboys of any stripe should STFU and enjoy their systems.

"My first real metal cd was Prowler in the yard, grindcore is my favorite subgenre."

Grindcore is awesome, do you like Braindrill? On their first cd they have one of the absolute best drummers alive - Lord Marco....I'm more into death metal/jazz/progressive I guess, I love the Faceless, Between the Buried and Me, Here comes the Kraken, Burning the Masses, Beneath the Massacre - Just to name a few, but honestly I enjoy all subgenres of metal....I have over 40 gigs of only metal on my PC.

Favorite newer band - Chon, these kid brothers (literally like 16-17 yrs old) are AMAZING guitarists, the drummer is decent, and the bassist isn't to shabby...I wouldn't really consider them metal, more of a progressive/jazz/breakbeat type of music (sort of the Fall of Troy meets Fear Before the March of Flames)...They don't have a singer right now but that doesn't hinder the music whatsoever, check them out if you ever get a chance, they're very good.

And this is the misinformation Xbots try to spread around.

WRONG!!!! I have had 2 360's RROD on me and did NOT spend 1 dime getting another. I actually got money BACK. I bought my 360's at Costco. When they bombed out I got a new one and got money back because the price changed. Nice try Captain Misinformation

I really dont see any way this could be considered anything other that 100% fact. Its the most factual article I have read in some time. It should be posted on wikipedia.

You did have to pay for the ability to shop at Costco. Not everyone has this luxury. Not disagreeing w/ you, just saying.

Fact: Nothing new gets discussed here. Ever. It seems like every time I pop in, there are more and more threads like this. Seriously people, shut up about it already.
Face it, you have all (and by you I mean the regular trolls in this forum) essentially run out of things to complain about. The 360 and PS3 are the same price, and have comparable libraries while the Wii is cheaper but still full of shovelware, not to mention prices are only going to get lower in the future. All you're doing at this point is defending some misplaced sense of honor to something you had no hand in the creation of. You made your choice, get over it. And if you haven't by now, you probably never will.
Also, it's fanboys that constantly post threads like this, threads whose sole purpose is to criticize others, that are "the worst", not the people said thread is about, whose only mistake is not siding with the OP. Tart.

Do any of you guys who B!TCH about paying for XBL or Costco have Jobs? What does me having to pay for a Costco membership have to do with getting another 360 and getting money back?

Hilarious how a post about how 'worst fanboys' in regards to their behaviors bring in desperate digs about 'skewing sales numbers', 'buying multiple consoles' , 'paying for online', 'well you bought yours at costco'....LOL

The article has pretty much proven its relevancy in this thread. 'They' ARE in denial, delusional and cannot help themselves.

Its even acknowledged by multi platform holders in these forums, how much more annoying, aggressive and persistant they are. Every flame thread is a used car salesman tactic to pick their machine over the next.

Whoa chill out man, you are the one who said you didn't spend one single dime on replacing your 360. You did when you paid your costco dues. There really isn't that much difference between that and buying the ripoff best buy guarantee.

Lol, M if you didn't know, what Shep said in his last two posts is what I was trying to get you to understand. I would've spent the time to actually write it out but I frankly didn't care enough.

Still amuses me at how delusional you are.

Thanks to Shep for posting so I wouldn't have to =)

So basically implying that the xbox fanboys are somehow the "better quality" fanboys out of the two? Well seeing these 3 dudes- M, 12ozmouse and DoC Hackenbush certainly doesn't make me think so.

In reply to an earlier post on Sep 21, 2009 1:32:47 PM PDT
Look, I have said it before and will say it again; if you really think one set of fanboys are better than the other than you are ignorant. Manny, when people like M, Fryfat, EG, Trever Growe, 12oz mouse spout their nonsense what do you have to say about that? All fanboys are bad but saying one group is worse makes you seem like a big fanboy yourself.

Xbox fanboys are a much better breed of fanboys. They have a higher selection of words in their vocabulary and came out a year earlier. The only catch is that every now and then they just kind of fizzle out and stop working. We're still waiting for the box to show up so that we can send DoC Hackebush back for his speech issues.
