remus: Every guy I ever knew that got deployed went down range with some type of gaming machine (either a lap top or a console).  They spent most of their down time playing because, what else are you going to do off duty in the sand box?

I foresee heavy sales of PS4 at BX and PX stores in the future.


I hope they are playing Madden or something else besides an FPS. Otherwise, it just seems odd to play an FPS when you are living it in real life. Seems like the equivalent of bringing a flesh light to an orgy.

JolobinSmokin: If my military has enough time to play Xbox on a nuclear sub, we have way to big of a military.


And not big enough of an education department.

ZipSplat: I don't follow this stuff too closely, is the XBone essentially just a net-top version of a gaming console - completely unable to play games unless it is connected to the internet?

If so, why the fack is that necessary?


Draconian control over used/traded games.

Anyway, Sony should turn up the troll-o-meter to 11 and launch a campaign to sell PS4s at a discount to active servicemen/women and top it off with a video ending with "Whether you're downrange, overseas or on a nuclear sub, you deserve to play great games."

Christmas?!?

It would be the dawn of a new age.
We might have to change how we record time.

Instead of 2014 A.D. (anno domini), it will change to 1 A.D. (after dickholes)

"When I read the blogs and thought about who's really the most impacted, there was a person who said, "Hey, I'm on a nuclear sub.' I don't even know what it means to be on a nuclear sub, but I've got to imagine that it's not easy to get an Internet connection. Hey, I can empathize. If I was on a sub, I'd be disappointed."

This man really needs to stop talking in public.

BigMevy: While I realize I've been out for a while, there were gaming systems when I was in the military and had to go to the desert.  That said, we never saw them.  At most we were lucky to have a TV and VCR for watching movies during down-time.  But mostly we worked out, played cards and dominoes, read books, and otherwise entertained ourselves.

So I guess what I'm saying is, they'll get over it.  The military is not entitled to having the latest and greatest gaming system while deployed.  They will adapt and overcome.


And their way to "adapt and overcome" will be to buy a PS4.

Hey, asshole, I was going to post this.

/every time i read the responses on that account I want to think it is parody

Oh, but it gets better

Dutch user â€WingsOfFury’ had uploaded 9 GB of content, and suddenly found his Windows Live account suspended, meaning he lost access to his Hotmail, Xbox Live, could not purchase apps and could of course not upload anything to SkyDrive.

After contact with Microsoft support he found out that his account was blocked because there was a  folder on his SkyDrive that contained content which was not allowed by the code of conduct of Microsoft SkyDrive. The folder was a private folder, not shared to anyone else.

Break a rule on any microsoft product? Lose access to everything.

Welcome to the future.

You're being really unfair. He is more than welcome to create new accounts and re-buy all his purchases as long as he toes the line.


Hopefully consumers are smart enough to send Microsoft a message.

fst_creeper: Dingleberry Dickwad: During downtime most people read in their rack, watched movies on those small personal DVD players, or played games on their laptop or console.

Back in my day it was read a book (on average 5-7 per 50 soldiers), play bones, talk about getting laid, dream about getting laid, play spades, or count the minutes to the next chow run.


We played spades.  Holy shiat did we play a lot of spades.  We played spades so much that no one will play spades with me today because I always win and I talk a lot of shiat when I do it.

In all honesty, I don't give a damn that people in the military can't play a f*cking video game system.

I give a damn that this is going to become the new normal in electronic media, I suspect.

I think people are just scared to play me.  Absolutely hilarious how scared you all are.  Looking forward to playing Call of Duty: Ghosts on Xbox Live, where the FPS gods do their thing.

At first I laughed at that picture, but the more I think about it, the more it seems to make MORE SENSE than the goddamn retarded path MS is taking on this.  How sad is it when the conspiracy whackery sounds MORE LOGICAL than your actions?

Flappyhead: ZipSplat: I don't follow this stuff too closely, is the XBone essentially just a net-top version of a gaming console - completely unable to play games unless it is connected to the internet?

If so, why the fack is that necessary?

Draconian control over used/traded games.

Anyway, Sony should turn up the troll-o-meter to 11 and launch a campaign to sell PS4s at a discount to active servicemen/women and top it off with a video ending with "Whether you're downrange, overseas or on a nuclear sub, you deserve to play great games."


They should shoot a commercial where a truck rolls up into a MOB, guys in polos and khakis starting hauling out PS4s and hooking them up in the barracks and tents.
"Yeah, you guys can take these anywhere.  You just need power and a TV."
(off center shot of one of the polo guys answering a soldier in fatigues "No, you don't need the Internet.")
Closing shot:  group of soldiers in a dark tent, whooping and hollering.  Do it, Sony.  Do it.

Microsoft seems to have looked at Apple, taken an inventory of all the things they do, and said "you know what really makes their stuff sell? The 'my shiat don't stink' attitude that lets them tell their customers what they'll farking like, that's what!" and gone all in on that one hand with every product release from 2012 on.

Good luck with that, assholes. I won't be buying either next gen console, but the fact that you've managed to make Sony look like the good, sensible, consumer-friendly company in this poo-flinging festival is nothing short of absolutely amazing.

/ now, if you filthy peasants will excuse me, I have to get back to gaming on my PC

Jesus Christ, do you kids actually go outside anymore. I'm a kid from the 80's and I remember Tom Cruise had a joystick in his hand while bravely battling some other branch with a volley ball. Under the sun!
