Here's another great example of Xbox One trolling

User creates a gamertag called "Xbox Skypee," then gets people to say his name so their sessions are interrupted.

YouTuber "Master of Luck" is back with another video that demonstrates the trolling potential for the Xbox One. In his latest video (via Kotaku), he creates a gamertag called "Xbox Skypee" and then pesters other players in Call of Duty: Ghosts until they say his name. [There's some profanity in the video]

When a player says "Xbox Skypee," Kinect thinks they want to launch Skype, but really it just interrupts their session, causing frustration. "Master of Luck" published a video back in January showing off a similar trolling move, only he created a gamertag called "Xbox Sign Out," which proved even more troublesome.

Of course, you can always unplug your Kinect or play with friends online in a private party chat to avoid the inconvenience--unless your friend is the troll. Then you're out of luck.

I'm sorry, Gamespot editor Eddie Makuch, but what's "great" (or newsworthy) about this example of childish behavior? 


It feels like some random people sneeked into GS team lately for some reason.

When they say "stop listening" it cancels going to Skype or is it too late at that point?

As much as hate that kind of shit, this was pretty funny. Still don't know why this is an article.

Biggest question here is do people still play COD ? I loved cod back in the day, now the name sends shivers down my spine.

These are the kind of idiots on YouTube I have banned my son from listening to.  For the record I never watched the video linked here as I don't want to give the guy any of my time.

This video also shows how even CoD looks like crap on XBONE

Don't shoot the messenger.

When something like this qualifies as news when (let's be honest with ourselves) there's really not much else to report on the XBONE, it says more about the console than it does the journalist. I imagine he legitimately tried to find any one thing interesting to write about it that was topical and tied to current video game events, yet this was probably all that was available in that regard.

I'm honestly not trying to knock the XBONE here, so for fanboys thinking I am; no. Just no. I think it's an absolutely enjoyable, well made console, but I'm honestly just not seeing that many newsworthy articles, rumors, etc., about it lately. Besides, people getting upset about this guy's trolling, you realize that's the reaction he wants to get out of you, right? Just sayin'.

The only thing useful in this video is that it shows how many kids are playing a game that they shouldn't

Just wish the PS4 had a Kinect so Playstation players could punk players as well!  Oh wait, no I don't.

@Tristan2668  if it goes to skype it will switch but you can switch back in most game, not sure how COD handles it though.  Stop listening is to get the xbox to stop listening .... anytime you say xbox voice is turned on.

@spikepigeo Glad I'm not the only one who sees the horrible journalism. Then again I most always get likes when I bash him. It's so bad sometimes it's almost like he does it on purpose. He's trolling himself in a way, LOL.

@devilzzz1983 What exactly is wrong here? He changes his name and makes people laugh. He doesn't cuss or do anything wrong, hell he didn't even shoot anybody in the game.... see nothing to be offended by

@Someguy1212  I agree.  Maybe it's like how we found out that a lot of news people looked funny in HD?  COD doesn't hold up well on the new gen.  COD had better get a new engine and fast.  Battlefield scales a lot better on the new gen.

everything looks like crap on xbone. even the very latest cryengine 4 built games with super soft shadowing , bokeh depth of field, real hair physics,god rays, Ultra res textures, Tessellation, True HDR, full scene reflections, ray tracing etc etc would look like crap on xbone.

@spilly42 @d-man@DemocraticTroll@venturahz2002@g0ldenpr0petBut if God created everything doesn't that mean he would have had to create the absence of himself? Also I've had Christians tell me that God is in everything, so doesn't that mean he is in absence thus making it impossible for him to be absent because he is in absence and furthermore if he is in absence then he is in evil which means God himself would have to have been some what evil. What is the difference between killing a bunch of people in a flood and killing a bunch of Jews? In both situations the "leader" was killing people because they were not as he wanted them to be. Also, I'm not trying to be a troll or disrespect any religions, I firmly believe everyone has a right to their own opinion. So I'm not judging anyone or saying you are wrong. Simply asking questions.

@DemocraticTroll @venturahz2002 @g0ldenpr0pet  Not thousands of years. Millions. And yes, evolution is real, it can be observed in real-time in bacteria. Also: Your heartbeat is regulated by your brain. Stupid under-educated zealots. If there is a god, he has a hell of a lot to answer for (like the holocaust)

" God is created by this and that is created by this and that is created by this...etc"

I believe in the big bang and all of that i just don't believe it all started from nothing...i mean thousands of years to "develop" this magnificent thing called...Brain?

@d-man It doesn't make me feel an less or more important. I just call it how I see it. If I said he does a great job all the time I wouldn't be truthful to myself. I'm sure some people think he does a good job and that's just fine because I won't try to control how anyone else thinks.
