It’s a sad day for the video game community. Toys ‘R’ Us unveiled their “Fabulous 15″ list that goes over the hottest items of the upcoming holiday season. In order to help describe each product, there are YouTube videos that help explain each item and why they are going to be sought after. Unfortunately, incredibly toxic and immature members of the gaming community happened across the video and proceeded to mash the ‘thumbs down’ button and leave vile and racist comments on it.

Yeah, they included X1 but left PS4 off the list. The fanboys were not pleased.

The PS4 is people? Oh man, no wonder it's $100 cheaper. Soylent green, man...
i know it sound wierd but the way they comment on youtube you would think they were people as well.

I mean ok so the PS4 didnt make the top 15 but really was it necessary to comment like that, I mean parents go there to see what they can get for Christmas and they read that and its like wow

I hope parents in this day and age are aware that Yotube comments are just a battle zone and shouldn't be taken seriously for the most part.

I meant that PS4 is a machine, not a person, so it can't get into a fanboy rage and make hateful Youtube comments. Maybe that's something to look forward to for next next gen -- consoles that get online and get into fanboy arguments by themselves. Cut out the middleman.

Anyway, I was just making a little joke about your phrasing. "Soylent Green is people" is from an old movie you probably haven't seen. ... oh, skip it. :laugh:

Pretty sure the gaming community has always been like this. Well, a part of it. Been seeing horrid comments and such since E3, and it didn't always have to do with the Xbox.

Fortunately, we don't have anything nearly that bad here, on either side.
i am thankful for that each and every day...

fanboys are literally the worst thing for gaming IMO. Blind worship to a console or company outside of common reason, is just a foreign concept to me.

I mean you can be a fanboy of anything but you have to control your mouth on what you say to people. Once you say those words you cant take them back.

That's why gamers get so little respect. The amount of immaturity within the community is an embarrassment.

it is the internet, you can say anything to anyone and not fear any beat downs. It is a perfect place for kids and adults to vent that are otherwise too feeble to do it in real life. Like the old email tough guys until you run into them in public.

its the internet. Its whole lot easier to shoot your mouth off when there is nobody within listening distance.

You also have to consider services like Amazons Mechanical Turk, where advertisers go and hire paid shills to post fake reviews, and derail threads. I have a lot of skepticism that the x1 hate campaign would be this ongoing and sustained all by its self. Someone (Sony) is bankrolling the PS4 fanboy campaign. It is the only way.

I know what Soylent green is..does that age me? :p lol Who cares if the X1 was in the top 15 and PS4 wasn't, or vice versa..it's TRU's opinion and they are entitled to it, I doubt that them putting the X1 in the top 15 is going to affect the current balance of gamers going one way or the other.
