Microsoft warns of Xbox One scams

Company says all sign-up pages for testing next-generation platform are fake.

by

Microsoft has again reached out to users to warn them that all sign-up pages claiming to offer Xbox One testing are illegitimate and should be avoided.

"All sign-up pages for testing #XboxOne are fake, "Xbox Live operations architect Eric Neustadter said on Twitter. "Do not give them your information - it's a scam."

Microsoft also warned gamers in March--before the Xbox One was announced--that all pages related to next-generation Xbox testing were fake.

Gamers will be able to try out the Xbox One when it launches later this year.

At this point I would rather be scammed and get one of those fake consoles from China or wherever than to get the actual pos Xbox One.

No Xbone.  You are the scam.  


...And then Xbone was a scam.

Looking at this image I finally see the one true positive with this thing. The pad finally has a proper D-pad.

They run a big presentation for it and then warn us off it? What a strange group they are :P (j/k)

I hope those 4 guys excited about the Xbox One didn't sign up yet.

Any dipshit dumb enough to want a Failbox 1, deserves to get scammed.

This is news? These fake testing things always happen whenever something like this is announced.

Pretty sure that these scammers Microsoft warned us about will be gentler comparing to what Microsoft is doing.

Jesus, the people making the Playstation 4 must be laughing their asses off at all the hate towards Xbox One

Just got one from the site, just got it today. But all it plays are really dumb looking Zelda and Mario games with some really horrible animation with even scarier voice acting.

Also, it must be really beta because it doesn't have the officially announced new name on it. Just has a code name C.D.I.? If these are next gen exclusives for XO, I'll just stick to my original 360 and ps3 tyvm!

Microsoft warning us of a scam, they are so nice to tell us not to but their system.

They probably set the scams up themselves so they can make it look like they care about your privacy. It is a business after all.

Anyone willing to actually buy into the Xbox One deserves to be scammed.

@enoslives7 Wow, that is rude and ignorant. Just because you don't like Microsoft doesn't mean you have to be a complete ass about it.

@enoslives7 Harsh.  I personally think the PS4 is the gamers console of choice, but think also the Xbox One has enough to merit a buy when it comes close to £150...

@travo0159 Yep, Microsoft don't want you to head but the console, just buy it...

What they deserve is a clue.  A taste of what really goes on behind the scenes.  Ignorance is not bliss.  Knowledge is the ONE true power.

@thekazumalord well if some one asked me if i wanted to try out the new game from remedy on the xbox one i would say yes as alan wake was awesome.

@jtthegame316 @VelvetKevorkian Open your eyes long enough to realize that you don't have to be a fanboy of Microsoft's opposition to know the Xbox One is a bad idea.  Where's Michael Pachter to tell us the obvious "Microsoft is in trouble"?

@jtthegame316 @VelvetKevorkian Dude, i play my PS3 5% of the time and my XBOX360 the rest of the time (so doesn't that make me an XBOX fanboy??) and i wholeheartedly agree with VelvetKevorkian. Anyone dumb enough to buy this machine is going to regret it, of that im certain.

@Banefire76 @jtthegame316 @VelvetKevorkian Anyone making there mind up now before e3 is stupid. PS4 has shown nothing except a controller as rubbish as the others and a mufti-platform game. ms are showing there games at e3. Wii u is the only system where  you can make a decision on at the mo to make a decision now on the ps 4 or xbox one is foolish

@jtthegame316 @thekazumalord Yeah.. no.. it's not about Sony.. i have a PS3 and a Gamecube (that's from Nintendo, duh!) it's about quality and games.. which i haven't seen much of either with Microsoft's new console...

@thekazumalord @jtthegame316 so your willing to overlook games on certain consoles so basically your console selection is not about games its about having sony and playstation written on them
