At least you guys decided to put a link to the beta sign-up. 3 other news sites reported this story and not one of them linked the site lol

Burns wrote a nuanced article about why he likes the launch line up for Xbox One. If you knew anything about him as a games journalist you would know he is his own man on that front.

I would respectfully disagree with your assertions.

I've been visiting Videogamer for years now, and get a lot of news there - and have respected the site - even after the whole Dead Space 3 fiasco - which I think they were right on....

But I've noticed a worrying trend on Videogamer. The site has become pro Xbox with the advent of Xbox One, and have been less kind to PS4.

They never even did post the PS4 VR rumor that's been circulating the web.... But have posted all sorts of positive Xbox One news.... and opinion pieces, the recent one being about Microsoft's console having the best launch lineup in history..

It's a worrying trend, and I feel offended by the sudden change in direction... And I don't think I'm the only one.

Come back on track, guys, I'm not sure if MS paid you cash or anything, but it's becoming clearer and clearer that you guys are a favoring Xbox One... And I don't know why...

Let's do some fair journalism, or your site won't be as respected as it is..

And I say this as a big fan of Videogamer. I'm here literally everyday.
