Yea, DF is the worst, when I look back at PS4 vs the original xbo comparisons they never said things like best place to play or most powerful console ever. Even when the games were higher resolution better frame rates and higher quality post processing they did there absolute best to legitimize the xbo. I do not know what the deal is I'd like to imagine they just prefer Microsoft consoles, but the obvious truth is that there is almost certainly money trading hands.

But the thing that really blew my mind was Gamestop talking about how X's were selling out as fast as they got in stock when you could go on their website and see them available constantly both to buy online and available in store. X never once has been sold out at Gamestop, the pre-orders did not sell out and it was always in stock post launch. And every retailer always had them, the only retailer that ever reported sold out was Best Buy and that was literally just launch day online every store in my area had them for in store pickup and the day after launch they put them back up for online sales.

And the worst was the fans on this site who simply refused to acknowledge that they did not sell out even when presented with facts and even though it was ridiculously easy to just go to any of the websites and put in your area code and see that they were available.

I will be honest even I thought that X would at least win launch months NPD, the fact they could not do that really puts Microsoft fate in a painfully obviously bad position. And they got outsold by more than 200,000 which is a large amount at that.

p.s. I apologize if this was more of a reply than you wanted, I more or less just wanted to say that stuff.
