Not only did the PlayStation 4 outsell the Xbox One in its first weekend by about 100000 units in the UK, it completely obliterated the Wii U.

The numbers are even bleaker for Nintendo - its year of Wii U sales have now been trounced in a weekend by both next-gen machines. More people bought a PS4 and a copy of Knack over the weekend than bought a Wii U at any point over the past year and new release Super Mario 3D World.

If not even a Mario game can save a Nintendo console, you know something's up. People, Nintendo is in deep, deep trouble.

I was voicing my opinion about hyperboles in the general media, with obviously this article as the direct reason. My reason to object to them is that they are not necessary and, IMHO, do not make the story more clear, but in fact the opposite. I would have gone for "dwarf" or "overshadows", but not "obliterate" as nothing went away or missing. The Wii-U sales that were made in the past aren't undone.

To me it seems you dismiss my opinion on alleged "emotionally laden term" to describe Google and Samsung. I am not aware of any made and any terms I used to describe those companies are probably, well most likely (meaning almost certainly), based on facts. But as you quoted none it's hard to judge or explain them.

Look, I don't get upset or angry when you use hyperboles. If you like 'em use 'em. My comment was just my free opinion and you can take it or leave it. We'll still be best friends.

That's fine! And as a reply, I stated that I like the way I write, and that it's not going to change. That's all.

So, I still fail to see where there's a personal attack - in whatever direction.
