What about Sony fanboys defending paid online? Once Sony announced online play locked behind a paywall the whole forum practically fell over itself justifying it when hey had been against it for years before hand.
Sonys free online was heavily defend back then because at that point in time the argument was "Why pay MS for what sony gives us for free? You also get for free the same thing on the PC plus a lot more" but now that they are both paid that argument disappears entirely. Now the argument isn't sony fanboys defending sony being paid online, its people defending the superior choice. Because now MS wants 60 bucks a year to play games online and users get 2 free games a month, meanwhile sony charges 50 bucks a year and gives you 18 games for signing up, 5 games a month, discount on PSN purchases, free online game save back, full game trials and more so now its a argument of "why should you pay more and get a whole lot less". Not to mention sony didn't put Netflix/amazon vod/ hulu, chatting with friends and friends lists, playing free to play games and such behind a paywall like MS did.
Not being able to realize that smells heavily of someone who just wants to hate sony because they are a contrarian. The fact this thread is based on you blaming sony for one random forum for seemingly to you be nothing more than a giant secret marketing campaign does nothing but help that observation. Despite the fact there are plenty of pro Microsoft comments and threads on there, and Nintendo ones. And despite the fact that you ignore that it wasn't but just a few years ago the entire internet was on fire (including neogaf) with blind and immature hatred of sony for no real reason at all.
Honestly this whole mess stinks of "I got banned so Im going to other forums and make complainy pants immature comments and Ill make insanely wild accusations about them based purely on nothing because I am innocent, and righteous and I have never done anything at all to ever offend or break a single rule!" when in reality you were probably a jerk and got banned for breaking rules. This thread reminds me of the time when every day I couldn't go on a game forum without reading some ranting thread about a guy who would say something about how he got banned at gamefaqs because he cured cancer.
If you hate neogaf so much then simply do not go there, it really is that easy. If they offend you so much maybe you should simply ignore them instead of forcing so much negativity into your life.
