Sony Blatantly Rips Off Microsoft Xbox Rewards With No Shame

SONY TO MS --- U MAD BRO

Sony was famous for being treated like trash last generation as their PlayStation 3 struggled to get any attention at all for the greater half of its existence. PS3 Released originally in 2006 with no games to speak of other than a few cult classics, if you can even call them that, like Warhawk and Resistance: Fall of Man which failed to move a respectable amount of units and confusing the entire game development world with the architecture of the cell processor causing many bad third party ports (or worse no port at all). It wasn’t until games like Uncharted 2 and LittleBigPlanet that the Sony PS3 started gaining momentum as a brand, eventually leading to where it sits today as one of the fan favorites (depending on who you speak to). All this time Sony has been playing the role of the underdog, and it turns out it was an act all along.

As the media suspiciously turns their backs on the Microsoft Xbox brand and now treats them like trash insulting the Xbox ONE before DRM was even announced (just as the PS3 was being bashed before the specs were even announced) now all of a sudden Sony feels king again and has begun to take actions that show their renewed egomania. Today, those actions come in the form of a complete identity theft of the Microsoft Xbox Rewards program by the Sony PlayStation brand.

For the past 7+ years the term “Xbox Ambassador” has been being used as well as “Achievements” pre-dating the PS3 trophy system, and today Sony has shamelessly decided that it would like to have the same benefits for its gamers but not only reward people for recruiting others to spend money on PSN to earn “Achievements” but also promise them the hopes of one day becoming a PlayStation “Ambassador” and “Grand Ambassador” even beyond that.

Gamestop Selling New Games That Aren’t New… Fake Deals

Gamestop will soon be running creative campaigns designed to gain attention and affection of the gaming community for the retailer giant most famous for their extremely high profit margin on used games, since they pay so little for trade-ins in most cases despite offering restricted deals on certain titles and situations.

In their quest to head off the rejection they would face if they do not carry the Microsoft XO (Xbox ONE) by the American public, Gamestop will offer new games for low prices using a variety of creative deals; but they aren’t really new though are they? No.

As all gamers should know by now and has been a headline news story multiple times this console generation, Gamestop allows its employees to take games out of their protective shrink wrap and bring them home to play them before they even come out. These discs are then later given back to Gamestop by the employee and sold to customers as “New” games, when in fact they should be considered Pre-Owned by Gamestop’s own policies and regulations were they not set out to ONLY BENEFIT Gamestop themselves.

In fact they would not accept your game as “New” for a return if you did the same, you will even be told that there’s actually a law against it to prevent mass duplication of discs but somehow it’s okay for Gamestop to do it to you!

This is all just a publicity stunt and Gamestop are scrambling for a way to win gamers’ hearts as next-generation game consoles level the playing field for consumers who have been duped into helping devalue their own products. Remember when games used to hold value? It was before Gamestop decided to start handing out pennies for used games for corporate greed. Support your gaming companies, not wanna-be Wall Street hustlers.
