Why do people feel the need to do this?

 

The guy named "Sony Prophet" has also commented on others: 'Could possibly be the worst launch title of all time. Microsoft needs to learn from Sony and release quality games.'

Yeah it was also sent in as a news tip, but I checked all 5 pages and none were verified customers. I'm not surprised this is happening after the genuine reports from last week, but Amazon should make it easier to filter reviews to verified only.

It happens both ways, one side can't be painted as saints and the other the fanboys. Amazon reviews are silly unless you pay attention to verified purchases, but even then apparently if you buy something, then cancel your order you can still do a review?

Fanboy (Noun)

Anyone expressing a point of view, regardless of how reasonable, that doesn't agree with the accuser's point of view.

 

Seriously >.>

Yes, but there's a difference between expressing a valid opinion when you've actually purchased the thing and trolling.  A majority of the negative PS4 reviews were from verified buyers, and at the moment anyway not a single one in the X1 reviews are verified...  suspect at best.  It's not reasonable when it's purely posted to bash "the opposition" and unlikely based on any actual experience with the unit.

What the hell. That's sad in a whole new way. I'm guessing the PS4-fans are scared that the Xbox One will get all the attention :)

While I think fanboys are rather annoying, I am intrigued by the psychology behind it.

Seems like ps4 fanboys are butthurt cause ps4 (and its games) received lower review scores....

 

The worst part is that they're so obvious about.  If you click on the 1 star reviewers profiles, most of them rated the PS4 a 5 star just a little while ago lol.  It's sad to see people behave this way over a entertainment device.  I like my brands of choice, and I'll even defend them (to a point) as to why they make a compelling purchase for people- but I never insist they are the only choice, or actively go out of my way to slander and denigrate other brands.  These guys act like it's their religion or at least as if they're getting paid.  It's really sad that they do all that for free lol.

Why do Amazon allow reviews from people who don't buy their product from Amazon? It's annoying. It's almost as bad as allowing reviews for products before they're released, but I think they've stopped allowing that, or are at least clamping down on it.
