Today, something strange happened. I turned on the tv to watch another emotionally charged episode of Emmerdale and a xbone advert was on. "why the fuck is audio from Rocky 6 playing?" I thought to myself.

Loading Video...

The video touts"The world ain't all sunshine and rainbows. It's a very mean and nasty place and I don't care how tough you are it will beat you to your knees and keep you there permanently if you let it. You, me, or nobody is gonna hit as hard as life. But it ain't about how hard you hit. It's about how hard you can get hit and keep moving forward. How much you can take and keep moving forward. That's how winning is done!"

As if this is applicable to the Xbox....

My friends, given how Microsoft deliberately attempted to kill pc gaming, along with practically all major gaming media wholly ignoring and declaring the platform "dead" time after time.

Can we agree this quote is actually, applicable to the pc, not the xbox? And that Microsoft, are the ones who have been doing the hitting while PC is a survivor with a heart on fire? And that it ain't over until it's over?

MS has failed to kill PC gaming.

Lol Xbox. Make sure every commercial has as many explosions and guns present. Those lems sure love their buzz cut brutes in camoflauge with a nice juicy explosion in the background. They do anything to get their hands on a new fix haha.

I don't think there was a single character that visibly had a buzz cut in that trailer

Or it's a commercial where Microsoft is acknowledging "it's about how hard you can get hit and keep moving forward. How much you can take and keep moving forward. That's how winning is done!"

Apparently, they love hats, and not buzz cuts. I counted several hats in that trailer. In fact, there was not a single character in the trailer without a hat aside from the Sunset Overdrive douche.

But Microsoft aren't winning.

I liked it, but if Spencer wants to get rid of the dudebro image, he should probably talk to his marketing team.

What are you talking about? PC gaming is already dead according to cosolites.

#14 Edited by uninspiredcup (12826 posts) -

In Rocky 4 the montage contrasts Ivan Drago against Rocky Balboa. While Ivan Drago is a souless husk, a machine, a product using industrial means to elevate him as an athlete, Rocky trains in natures raw surroundings, we see the will of the individual, the heart. Ultimately this is the story of console gaming and pc gaming.

Weak commercial.

About your question TC, MS has to sell their consoles, which are expensive to produce. In contrast to "PC", where MS needs to sell their OS only.

They didn't try to kill it, they wanted to control it.

PC gamers kicked them the fuck out.

Must be great to be Gabe Newell right now, worked for a company that declared PC gaming dead then goes off starts his own company based around PC gaming and pretty much rakes in billions.

It's an okay commercial, but it's weird to just hear lines from a movie spliced in.

What a weird advert...

#23 Posted by EJ902 (14420 posts) -

I always wondered why MS never released the Halo games beyond 1 and 2 on PC (or made them available on Steam). I realise it is probably one of the only identifiable xbox-exclusive franchises and making it multiplatform probably wouldn't help them.

Translation for my last post:

"Excuse me? Are you being sarcastic? What do you think I was talking about? I'm talking about your ignorance. You don't know I'm a fanboy and have no proof. So there".

I for one can't take my conversations with you seriously because of your cute little doggy avatar. But please, feel free to expose me as the stupid little fanboy twat that I am. So far all you have done is gone out of your way to insult and ridicule me. I never said a thing to you before hand. You need to get the chip off your shoulder.

No chip. You act like a fanboy twat, I'll treat you like one. And its an open forum. Anyone is allowed to say whatever they want at any time within the TOU, there, master shake.

I've noticed how you think people are alts all the time lol. Master shake? Who the fuck is that? Just like you insist that Jankarcop is an alt. You really don't have a clue do you? You keep talking about contributing to a forum. How do you contribute more so than me? And how do I act like a fanboy twat? Sure, I mess about and preach SDC for the fun of it. But there is no underlying motive. I owned a 360 and PC last gen. And I actually prefer PC as a platform. So you couldn't be more wrong about me. I like PlayStation games the best tho. What's wrong with that? Read my post history. I'm not even a troll.

Yawn...0/10.

So let me see.. You are complaining about me being a troll and you totally disregard my post in that manner? Quite a rude thing to do actually. I don't want flamewars over a gaming forum. You are fueling the feud.

Whats the point of SW then.....

They were most likely referring to their fans and how they get made fun of everywhere they go. Basically, stay strong and keep buying our shit even if it's not as good as Sony's shit.

Lems need that positive reinforcement now more than ever.
