"Just when you thought Microsoft couldnt go a day without some new anti-consumer disaster its been revealed" (Metor.co.uk)

I could go on and ON and ON.... for a while the Many non game sights even seem to be taking digs at Microsoft.  The word is getting out to people who are not really looking for this information.

You can see by Microsoft reactions that it is having an effect, again not because of what is being said on these boards or other gaming sites, but on every KIND of responce from many different soruces. from WIRED to ABC news, the normal communications on twitter and Face Book, all affecting Microsoft. 

Maybe something good will come about and Microsoft will make an about face, but Micrsoft has offended so many people its is really looking bad for them.

We are doing very well, we have the highest pre-ordered game of a Next generation console, have already had over 1 million pre-orders since the end of our E# presentation, and are setting up servers in many countries. We also got tons of developers bringing exclusive games and exclusive content to our system.

honestly all they had to do at E3 was offer the cheaper console and they would have done a lot better. The main issue is right now the PS4 is just the better value. All the other stuff people would have been willing to except and deal with because its really not as bad as people here make it seem. But its hard to justify paying $100 more (plus the extra peripheral for full tv intergration that no one seems to be talking about) to deal with all that. Had the Xbone been 299 or 349 people would be all over it. But $500 to deal with always online, DRM, kinect spy cam, complicated game sharing, and all that when you could just pay $400 and just simply play games is a tough sell to even the most hardcore lemming.

MS will probably change the policies IF and ONLY IF sales start to reflect public opinion. Consumers vote with their wallets, not their mouths. Gonna be an interesting next two years.

The Playstation 4 has a much better GPU, it's $100 cheaper, it doesn't stop working if your internet goes down, it doesn't stop working if you remove the video camera, and it has more games coming to it. Yeah, I think that I'll just go ahead and get the PS4...

You can remove the camera now and it still works. I dunno, I liked MS's lineup better, but to each his own.

Do you have a link? I read some rumors saying that you can supposedly disable it, but that you can't disconnect it...

Hah, riiiiiight. No one but a few casuals care pal, i'd feel pretty comfortable saying the die hard gamers are all pissed at this bullshit... 

Why not invent a console that doesn't rape it's users rights?

 

Took his post down?

Awwww, did he run away?
