** PLEASE READ ** "Console Warriors" you are now on alert

Okay, enough is enough. I had thought the "console wars" had died down when the PS4/One were released last year but there are still a handful of posters here who feel that they need to keep stirring the pot. Everybody knows exactly who I'm talking about.

Some new rules for those who go into threads about consoles they don't own for the sole purpose of making trouble:

-- First time you do it, you get a PUBLIC warning
-- Next time you do it, you will be PUBLICLY asked to stop posting in that thread
-- Third time you do it, I will recommend you for suspension

As of right now, everybody has a clean slate. So no need to report posts from days past. However, I will be keeping a watchful eye going forward.

Thanks.

I own both systems. I guess I get immunity.

Just kidding, I love both systems so far.

Re: ** PLEASE READ ** "Console Warriors" you are now on alert

I'd lump the PC elitists in with the console bashers. Just because your PC runs games at insane resolutions and 200 FPS doesn't mean you need to shove those stats down my throat every week. How about enjoy games because they're fun to play and not because they run better/faster on system x, y or z.

I still can't believe you people are arguing over the XBOne and PS4 when the Sega CD is clearly the best system out there.

That's if you can find one. They are having a hard time keeping them in stock. So, we are relegated to the next best consoles.

Unless you post the frame rate and resolution specs you have no case around these parts.

Surprised to find out that the Sega CD sold about 6 million units.

Re: ** PLEASE READ ** "Console Warriors" you are now on alert

I was actually surprised this hasn't been instituted earlier.. Its a good move. I don't get the draw of continually causing problems in threads devoted to a console that you don't have. Its juvenile.
