So you are so hell bent on posting more pro playstation/anti xbox propaganda that you're entire post consists of 1 single link and that's it?

 

Verging on spam.

If that's what you take away from this, it speaks more about your mentality than AB's. Many people might be worried after today's news Sony would do the same. Sony have said they won't and now people are safe in the knowledge they can do what they like (as should be the case for X1), and you can play without being banned.

and Major Nelson has reached out to the guy in question to sort his console out. Just another badMS/goodSony opportunity for nothing.
Sony at this point is just flaming the console wars, they wait for Microsoft do something "bad" and say they would do the opposite.
Can't blame them though, working out for them so far.

It shouldn't have happened in the first place. Major Nelson is getting involved because he's damage controlling. Contrary to what some believe on Neowin, there has been a backlash. Nothing like DRM levels of backlash, but it's there nonetheless.

 

If you guys want to turn it into a bad MS / good Sony thing then that's your doing, not AB's. Sony are just telling people you won't be banned for playing your PS4 early. Simple.

Here, I've fluffed it up just for you,

 

Breaking PS4 News

 

Today is the 9th of November 2013. It's quite mild outside and it seems like a spot of rain may be on the way. You better get thinking about Christmas shopping soon if you want to beat the rush, that is our tip of the day.

 

Moving on, Sony Playstation president Shuhei Yoshida, a Japanese man if you haven't guessed has told us something on Twitter.

 

Twitter member Jahermon asked president Yoshida if he connected his PS4 to PSN before the EU release date of the 29th of November, would his console be banned? Some gamers online expect to be banned, and say it is part of the T&C, and rightfully so the gamers fault and not stores for selling early.

 

Whether or not you agree with this is prime time discussion for the comments section below.

 

Yoshida replied to twitter member Jahermon with a response of "no". At first we could ask what does he mean with such a short response? No bagels left in the kitchen today? Still no DNLA plans for launch? However being sensible about the matter, its clear he means no ban for connecting early.

 

There you have it guys, Sony will not ban you for connecting early, and you've had a good time reading all these words to find that out.

That's nice of Sony. :) Wonder if Microsoft will do the with the same with the early Target shipments of Xbox One's.

There's been a small backlash in niche communities. Contrary to what you think, there isn't really a backlash in the grand scheme of things.

And good for Sony. That's how it should be.

I used to cringe every time someone from Sony would open their mouth. This year has really been different for Sony.

 

Yoshida has been pretty clear cut in his responses to the public, with his "yes" and "no" responses. Maybe not the most beautiful of replies, but I can certainly appreciate someone giving me a straight answer versus a paragraph of wishy-washy jargon providing a backdoor for escape if they cannot do it. (Blizzard for instance hates to promise anything because of how often they change their minds)

MS will reverse it now, Sony got some free PR and let us know not to worry, no one loses. If you think this will be the only case of early hardware getting into people's hands you're mistaken. PS4 launch is 6 days away, I fully expect consoles to be getting into peoples hands starting monday next week.

I didn't put a number on the size of scale, and I really don't care to judge it that way either. I simply said there has been backlash and there has. If you want to call the biggest gaming forum on the internet a niche, then that's your opinion. Either way it doesn't really matter and the fact is Sony are settling worries they'll not do the same.

Fair enough, though I doubt most of the tens of millions of people that will buy these consoles know what GAF is (I assume that's what you're talking about), so it is niche in that respect. Hell I only really know what it is because AB keeps posting stuff from there in this forum :p
