At first it was just game sites, then it was more general sites, now its everwhere.  The backlash on SO many levels is huge.

 

There are just too many sites to list but here are a few more

  1. E3 audience offended by "rape joke" at Microsoft Xbox One event - CBS News
  2. Microsoft: 'We Have A Product For People Who Can't Access The Internet, It's Called Xbox 360' - Forbes
  3. http://news.yahoo.com/xbox-one-future-prism-140530270.html
  4.  Gamers fear Xbox One could be future of PRISM after NSA revelations MSNBC

The list goes on and on with bad news not just at games sites but in general. BAD news about this console is spreading fast. How wil Microsoft contain it?

Its one PR disaster after another.

According to lemmings, none of these sources are consistent with 'teh real world'. So much of this is pointless until the X1 gets destroyed in sales, and then everyone can throw it in their faces.

Hilarious. Microsoft deserves every bit of this crap for the DRM BS they are attempting to trick people into accepting. Sad part is it's working on some of you.

Forbes not considered "teh real world"?

What I laugh about is that Lemmings keep saying.... it does not matter what you say here, No one cares.  Well, it seems more people care that they would like to admit or there head is burred so far deap in the ground they can hear anything.

E3 may not be followed closely by the mainstream press, but the mainstream press will catch wind of the buzz from E3 and report it.  After all, it's an industry that is bigger than Hollywood and Lindsay Lohan can't snort a line of coke without it being in the Entertainment section of newspapers the next day.

 

That being said, the level of coverage isn't nearly the same, but it does get covered, and E3 is the closest thing the industry has to a Super Bowl.  The crows are circling overhead in XBox Land right now.  I always did find it funny that Xbox fanboys seem to think Johnny and Susie Trailer Park will swoop out of nowhere and save a machine that is launching at $500.  MSes position in the industry is untenable with the XBone.  That is just a fact.

lewis black is awesome.

the rest of the links are just stupid.

without internet the 360 would suck ass also, the rape joke is internet bullshyt at its finest  and you have to be braindead to expend energy worrying  about the x1 but ignore the phone in your pocket.

Ahh, yes, the "But your cell phone" argument. That's a good one, too. Considering that access to GPS maps, mobile internet, Facebook on the go and the ability to call people from anywhere is somehow equivocal to a videogame console that faces restrictions when compared to a cheaper and more powerful product... Your entire argument hinges on MS having built enough brand loyalty to compete with a machine that does everything the XBox One does but better. Do you really think this is an iPhone versus Android scenario? That XBox will somehow expand its marketshare this gen on marketing alone? You're not just a little bit delusional my friend.

MS just needs to get a lot of stupid Americans to buy their new x1 and bingo!

Unfortunately, there is a pretty good supply of those

Nope, then they will just claim 'we don't play sales' like every fanboy with his console in last position has claimed before.

this is one of the dumbest responces you have ever had.

which is saying something.

from your post i do not believe you have a clue what the conversation was even about.

this has nothing to do with brand loyalty.

the link was about the x1 spying on you.

my observation is that your phone is a greater danger than the x1 is since maybe you noticed a few storys in the media lately that are about phone spying and data collection.

it will be another week or two before they get here and the outrage of the internetless is heard.

No the mainstream press was praising the Xbox after the reveal. It was only after the press release just before E3 and the fact that Microsoft ignored all the issues at E3 that turned the mainstream on them as well.

Xbox was beating PS4 ins preorders and even breaking records ... until E3 happened and now it seems everyones cancelled :P

I've officially turned Leming myself. I liked what Microsoft showed at e3 as far as games go. I really don't understand the backlash the machine is getting. Our phones are always connected. The government knows when we swipe our credit and debit cards. They can read our e-mails. In fact, if we do anything at all that involves the internet, the government knows about it. Why aren't gamers here up in arms about that? There's so much more gamers should be up in arms about besides whether or not the X1 can see you naked and report it to the FBI. The ability of Kinect to see that is certainly disturbing if Microsoft is allowed to share that with the FBI, but they wouldn't if people stood up to the government and said no. Stop snooping around my calls and e-mails and texts and give me my country back! Stand up to Microsoft too and make them accountable for that kind of crap. Just the rants of a converted Leming because I liked their games they showed at e3. Always online doesn't bother me since I'm always online anyway, but the X1 isn't the only point of concern where privacy goes.

The lemming damage control meter is going off the charts!! Face it, it's not XBOX ONE, it's XBOX DONE!! This is coming from someone who was hardcore XBOX and XBOX 360. I simply cannot and will not support MS in this. It is too expensive, too intrusive and too restrictive. I don't want to have to jump through hoops to play my games. My time is simply too valuable!! The bulk of the games I play are multi-plats anyway and honestly, from what I have seen, the PS4 exclusive content is much more interesting to me.

your time is not valuable.

I have to wonder, with such backlash from not only gaming websites but like every news source in general...will MS change the Xbox One policy at this junction? They've still got time and it would at least cool down the flames a little bit.

I think they're going to ride it out to see if public opinion will die down. If it does, bonus for them, if not then they can use it as a defacto "megaton announcement" at the next big video game conference.

I whole heartedly agree ,I still can't fathom how they believe the non-gaming public will buy an overpriced machine that essentially just mimics what alot of  other cheaper devices are already doing....they are delusional.

Most people interpreted it as a tape joke, including many of the people who found it funny. Just because the connotations went over your head does not mean that everyone else is incorrect for being offended by it.

The people being offended by it lack any real intelligence if that's the case. Shows where their minds actually are. In their pants or on a porn site. Way overblown just to stir up more negativity over nothing.
