@Shewgenja: by whom ? Forum dwellers that spin everything into "the bad/worse" pretty much like you.. and do i dare to say any major sony fanboy/cow here.. why do you guys care so much about ms/xbox? Its not that its doing anything remotely close to any of you. You "guys" are just on (i can't form an opinion of my own, ill just jump the hate wagon) instead just enjoy the meaning of gaming ffs lol ?. This is a very smart move and pure business. And with that said every cow (mostly) seems to be educated in, how to make a console/develop games or just know how the law aka pure business works, or pretend that sales actually matter to them.. you "guys" are really something, get a new hobby or give it a rest. play the damn games instead.
again whats with the pure harted towards a company, and why care so much bout it, when you already got the console of your choice ?
That's where you are wrong. I like Microsoft plenty. I use a 100% legal copy of Windows 7 on my gaming PC. Microsoft Studios has made some amazing games for PC as well. Flight Simulator is also a load of fun with a good setup. I also happen to do a lot of Windows server administration where I work. So, I kind of get a paycheck because of Microsoft.
The brand isn't the problem. XBox is. Don't get it twisted. I know a lot of people on here just hate MS. To some degree, their business practices have brought that on. Look up 'Halloween Documents' sometime. Time and time again, I get heaped in with some frothing at the mouth fanboy fuckery, but that's the real problem with dealing with me. I have been gaming long enough to know better. Microsoft could have done a whole lot for gaming, but their goals with XBox are not in line with my desires as a gamer. It's just as simple as that, really. They're legitimately fucking up. I just call it out.
So, the real question is.. Why does it always turn personal? I mean.. So what if I call the XBox out on its bullshit? Do gamers owe allegiance to a system whose architects admitted they sacrificed gaming performance for multimedia functionality? Is it incumbent upon me to stay quiet when an underhanded contract is used to astroturf Youtube in a grab for brand recognition? Let's cut the shit.. Should we all have just stood silent while "always online" and 24 hour check-in was going on as well?? Don't worry about me. You worry about you. The problem isn't that "Cows" are hating on the XBone. That would be a simple problem to have. The problem is that people have sane and rational reasons to distrust and even detest of the XBox right now. Soon, it's you guys that are going to have to start listening and not the other way around.
