A ‘Win’ for Microsoft: Xbox One Trumps PS4 as the Discerning (Thief’s) Choice of Console (to Steal)

Console wars, as we know, are a terrifying prospect. The term brings back all manner of bad memories from the Nineties. In the schoolyard, sexuality was questioned, mothers' weight problems were mocked and the small size of genitals was grossly exaggerated for comic effect. All because we supported Sonic over Mario. Or vice versa.

Today, in this brave new world of the Internet, newfangled ‘Blu-Ray' disks (whatever they are) and iPods the size of a gnat's gonads, this ‘fanboy' bullshit has become more widespread than ever. Thanks to the all-pervasive Interwebs, we can tell someone over in Australia that they're a moron for buying that rival console, from the comfort of our couch. We damn well shouldn't, but we can. Sadly, judging by Youtube's comment section, we certainly do as well.

But no more. Now, courtesy of some cheeky robbers who were robbing robbily, we know which is the superior next-gen console (no we don't). Kotaku bring us the tale of a hold-up at an Indianapolis GameStop, at which the thieves demanded --by name-- the store's full stock of Xbox Ones. Learning that Microsoft's system was sold out, they instead made off with $3600 worth of PS4s.

Sure, it's just a matter of the prices of the two, but still. If we can't trust the judgement of thieving lowlifes, we can't trust anyone.
