1.0 out of 5 stars Radioactive., November 22, 2013
This review is from: Xbox One Console - Day One Edition (Video Game)

Xbox One has made me sick, I think the radiation from the kinect camera has burned a hole through my brain as it scanned my vital statistics.

Buyer beware, I now have to go to hospital to get a diagnosis.

really?? wtf is wrong with people

 

 

Given what he posted there, it may be true... :p

Guys just do a "Report Abuse" on the comments that are obviously trolling and put in "Not a review" and report it.

 

Thats what I been doing. I keep seeing this Ted Troll on so many reviews..

Then people with legitimate complaints will have their review buried underneath all this fanboy filth being copy/pasted by trolls.

If you havent notice Soney fanboys have problems and would take the time to troll on crap. I read throw the list of reviews on amazon on day 1 and they seem genuine.. For the xbox one release. Clearly 95% of reviews are pure bull and fake.

Well the difference being that I went through every single 1,2 and even 3 star reviews and not a single one is verified buyer.  Yet almsot all the 5 stars are.  

 

When i go through the ps4 reviews its like atleast 25% of the bad reviews are verified

Sure, it would be surprising if they didn't.  The big issue (for me anyway) is the huge difference in how many verified purchases there were.. namely absolutely none for the X1, where a majority of the negative reviews for the PS4 were from people who actually bought the thing.

Yeah actually i took the time to click throiugh the ps4  bad reviews a little deeper and it seems more like 75% are verified lol. Whats even more funnny is it seems like half the 5 stars are not verified.  

 

Amazon should give you a way to see the verfied star rating only or allow ONLY verfied ratings to count

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.

 

When it comes to console gaming i don't think verified buyer means as much as it usually does. I've seen lot of Sony fanboys getting an XBox and i've seen lot of MS fanboys getting a PS. Even if they own both sides those fans are still willing to do anything to make the other side looks bad.

 

You'll have to wait some weeks after christmas when Joe Blow will start buying them for a clear picture.

Well this one took the cake:
 

My apartment exploded, November 22, 2013
This review is from: Xbox One Console - Day One Edition (Video Game)

I'm standing outside on the street, looking up at the smoking remains of where my apartment once was. I don't know how this happened. I woke up to find a UPS box at the door, excited to have finally gotten my xbone one gaming console system. I plugged it in, Kinect recognized me immediately (very cool) didn't have to do anything to set up. Then it started making a funny clicking noise, is this the DVD drive error everyone is talking about? Within a few minutes however, I knew something wasn't right and backed away from the console. Then, it #$%*ing exploded. I was flung out the window, I only survived because I landed on a stack of bricked PS4s on the ground level, which cushioned my fail. Thanks goodness for PS4, saved my life.

Some of the crap like that can give you a brief laugh haha. Still, Amazon should really be on top of stupid reviews.

Anyone giving 1 start to a DOA product is trolling anyway. Verified buyer or not.

 

I've had 3 DOA products in my life (a video card, one monitor and one 360). The 3 got replaced under the warranty and i would not rate them 1 star for that. One of my ATI card was DOA. ATI replaced it at no cost and the replacement card lasted for until i sold it. I would rate this card (9800pro) 5 stars. The only product i ever owned worthy of a 1 star rating is my Creative X-FI Platinum as it never worked under Vista and Creative did not want to honor the warranty cause in their head the problem was caused by the nForce 4 chipset of my mobo which was not really possible cause the card was working perfectly under xp.

 

I've had 1 RRoD and one bad HDMI port (DOA) on my 3 XBox 360 and i would still rate the console something between 3.5 and 4 stars.

Amazon should accept verified buyers reviews only and should start to accept reviews some days after someone bought the product only. There's no way you can objectively review a product after 1 day of use only. The buyer should be required to try the product for let's say 5 days before reviewing it.

because at least 10,000 PS4s were broken by Sony's own admission. There might be some fanboyism involved but PS4 had real problems including PSN meltdown which so far hasn't happened in XBL and reported cases seems to be lower than PS4 (too early to say though given it is just over 24hrs).

Of course there's a problem with the first batch of PS4. But if you are to believe Amazon users reviews up to 40% of the PS4 are DOA. Now it might be the case we will know in a couple of weeks but this number looks high to me as even the RRoD was not that widespread and those were not DOA but broke after some months of use.

 

Personally i don't care. I'm gonna wait next year and from the look of it i might end up getting a Steam Box. I have a hard time associating myself with either the XBox COD nation or the Sony Poser nation. If i absolutely had to buy a console right now to be honest it would be a Wii U. That new Mario game looks totally crazy.

 

Anyway i might just be getting to old for all this console gaming crap.

The butthurt is strong in this thread -- from PS4 fanboys who feel the need to troll, from the X1 fanboys who cry about it and point.

 

This really needed a thread?  Really?

 

And what's funny is the first 1-star PS4 review I find is from a guy who also 5-starred his X1, neither are confirmed purchases, and in his X1 review he says he passed on buying a PS4.

Stupid, Amazon should disable non-verified purchaser reviews for items that attract fanboys. Almost every 1-star XB1 review (on both the UK and USA Amazon) is from a unverified purchaser, a lot of them read like they're written by the same person too. The majority of 1-star PS4 reviews are verified purchasers from people with genuine problems though.

I tend to stay way from reading reviews that are negative or that sound untruthful. When I look at reviews, I tend to read ones that offer negative and positive things in them. I can tell if reviews are truthful about a product being truly terrible.
