It hurts ME personally that you want to control all of my video games with online-only & "Cloud" power so that I can never, ever go back to them in the future when your servers turn off.

ATTENTION: Hypocrit!

  1. Create games and a hardware that leave the customers unsatisfied / unhappy / depressed (Forza 5 scam, broken day one disc drive etc.)
  2. Make a "I got like, so hurt by all this DRM / always on controversy" so the scammed crowd will identify with Mr Spencer
  3. See how DRM & always on and a camera with built-in microphone for NSA can make you happy afterwards!

Mr Spencer and the other gangsters especially for this purpose built in unhappy faces, accusing you of - what the hell did I do?! Here's a link of evidence for their crime: https://flic.kr/p/mTVHKr

We hope it did hurt you personally. We are not idiots, we know what a mega cops agenda is when they think they "have it the bag". When you revealed that monstrosity for the first time you hurt millions of your paying fans. You only have a job because we allowed it.


Do what you will Phil, you ain't never going to be on top this time around. You ruined that chance when you played us for idiots and now you have a box that is not game future proof, you slacked on hardware because you morons thought it would be a media player foremost. Like always you are too late for the game, there are enough media boxes as there is you had a good thing with just a gaming console last gen, oh well. lmao.

@IanNottinghamX No... It's a psychological scheme to make you accept DRM / always on; see my post for evidence.

@timoteo2k1 They did not try to screw their customers, they *are* screwing their customers.

@WingChopMasta You're still not understanding.. See my post for their 'master-plan' if you truly want to be red-pilled. (BTW are you human? Maybe we should get in contact, the bot attacked you and you're not in line. Don't listen to the bots, they are ultra-aggressive paid shills that spit on your rights for their own greed & profit.)

@WingChopMasta  so much back peddling has been down, rumours of backward compatible with xbox 360 now, i just hope that everyone sees through this for the scam that it is, probably a small list of games will be compatible and they will slowly trickle feed us, letting us live in hope that it gets better, truth is, it could of all been done straight out of the box, not these constant updates depending on how sales are going and where the profit is.

@WingChopMasta there are both health professionals and medications for your issues, seek them out. If people got this mad about real injustice in the world, we wouldn't have any problems.

@predator4965 Exactly! They will tell you _anything_ to stay in power, even the most ridiculous stuff!

@ace01234 No, no damage control - everything according to plan, to slowly erode the pain threshhold for DRM / always on / camera & microphone always on.
