Don’t you love the so-called “console wars?” (I know I don’t.) It makes fanboys see things they want to see as opposed to how they really are. Take this advertisement for example:

Xbox One | oprainfall

Oh snap?

In the mind of a fanboy this would be a dirty move. However, wording aside, upon further investigation you’ll see the offer to trade in a PS3 towards a $100 store credit for the Xbox One also extends to the Xbox 360 S and E units. So, basically what you can do at GameStop already. If you’re in the market for an Xbox One, can part with your PS3 or Xbox 360, and have a local Microsoft Store, I don’t see any problem with that.

      But you can watch TV on your TV.

    Reading this I remember when DC made a simillar offer where you would trade a Mangá for one of their comics.

    I believe the technical term for this is “desperation.”

    After all, you could pay the same price for a PS4 and keep your PS3, which still has games coming out for it.

    Are you going to be offering Persona 5 on your Xbone, Microsoft? Then keep that garbage away from me.

    Translation: “Ditch your awesome last-gen console for the shittiest console of the now current-gen.”
    Me: “Uh, no thanks, I’ll just keep my awesome PS3 and save my money for the good games…and a PS4 down the road.”
