Where are you seeing this? I don't see any filters for verified/non-verified.

 

Unfortunately Amazon doesn't have a option to filter, but I wrote a browser extension back when Amazon verified reviews were first introduced to do so, I don't see much point reading reviews from unverified purchasers, so it hides them by default. You're more than welcome to count them if you don't believe the numbers.

Tried to find an extension for Chrome or Firefox (even from userscripts.org) doesn't seem to have one which does this, care to share your extension so we could verify it ourselves?

Wow, that's the pathetic GAF and N4G Sony fanboy desperation right there. How sad. Nothing better to do with their lives I guess.

From the comments in the screenshot with the same wording, it looks like a bot posting mixing up the content

It isn't publicly released, nor is it packaged for release, so no, not really. You can still verify the numbers yourself by simply counting/searching for the instances of "Amazon Verified Purchase" on the pages. As a comparison 532/821 of the 1-star PS4 reviews are verified (65%), still a high percent of potential trolls, but not as many as with the XB1.
