No surprise that MS wants to give away FIFA. The Seattle Sounders are sponsored by Xbox. Just glad they aren't giving away a game I'd never play. Which doesn't really matter because I will probably wait until The Division or a price drop to get an XONE.
It takes a company on the brink of collapse to really humble you. A lot of Sony's longtime heavyweights like Yoshida-san and Cerny really rolled up the sleeves and went totally honest, with the spare exec like Tretton or House still wearing the suits. It really feels like, at every step of the way, Microsoft is reacting, on the defensive. Standing onstage and having some British guy in a suit who happens to be a terribly monotone speaker attempt to convey Microsoft's "excitement" about embracing smaller studios and making publishing easier is a weak sell, and flies straight through my left ear and out the right.
It's desperate. And kind of funny to watch.
It also makes my tummy feel weird because I own a flagship Windows Phone.
@NetBiosError I know exactly how you feel. I'm a Lumia 920 user yet I'm all about Playstation. To be honest, MS have done very little to enhance the connection between Windows Phone and Xbox and I've never been into mobile gaming anyway. As for the Xbox One, it seems to be the 3rd console effect, all companies seem to get cocky with their third console and try to tell gamers what they want only to then be humbled.
@NetBiosError And I bet those flies didn't have any obstacles impede their progress on that lonely and quiet trip ... just a lot of echo and the sound of water dripping.
Most of the negativity surrounding the X1 was caused from all of the confusion about MS's policies... Mostly due to shitty journalism and people who believe anything they read on a blog.
@PartyGavinParty wasnt confusion. They were just shitty policies
No confusion, I read the 1st Press release.
That was enough.
Why do you think MS is Flip/Flopping on nearly all their launch policy's
like some bad washed up politician.
They felt that backlash & knew that if they didn't turn around Sony would bury them.
The link below shows a video from Sony doing just that.
@PartyGavinParty or hear in the official conference.
Really, the only thing holding me back from wanting to buy an X1 is all of the games I have yet to play on current-gen consoles. I'm not ready for that investment.
MS: "We listened to what the development community wanted."
Dev: "I wanted it to be like Sony really."
Cutting out their "j/k" laughs. Hilarious!
@SOLDIER-No2 yea ha ha idiot
Shit, Give me dead rising 3 for free bundle and I'd buy an xbox one. (Then it'll be worth that 500 greenbacks price.) Seriously, the Kinect sensor is a piece of crap that us hardcore gamers don't need or want.
@Sruppert Now, that's a bundle real gamers will care about.
Get me Killer Instinct (the complete game) instead of FIFA and I might get and XBOX one. Not a soccer fan.
I love the more like Sony joke, good to see Microsoft have a sense of humour, just wish this was a more better product video, but it gamespot so no shock
GameSpot thank you for the amazing video. Your inclusion of all they Xbox exclusive was amazing. Like how you showed Forza, KI, Titanfall, Project Speak, etc and the length of the video just brilliant editing. Thank you.
Everybody gets a free copy of FIFA 2014 when pre ordered xbox one, BULLSHIT. I live in norway, one of the countries cancelled from the first wave of xbox one, I was very close to cancel my preorder, but then we got a free game as announced in the video. BULLSHIT know they have announced it only applies to the first wave, where the fuck is the logic in that. Pre order cancelled, PS4 only this time around.
What the fuck is this? I have absolutely no desire to buy the console after this conference. Or to visit this site anymore for that matter.
So why isn't the US getting Madden for free? I don't play it, but I could regift it or trade it for a good game.
@Geminon It's pretty clear that GS has decided that at every opportunity they are going to help MS look as bad as possible for the X1. The whole first minute of this video was awkward MS execs. Compare that to the Sony 2 minute summary.
I thought they crossed a line of journalistic integrity when so many GS reporters came out after E3 that they would only support the PS4 but that was in the heat of the moment after a really stupid bunch of decisions from MS. However, I thought journalists were supposed to remain relatively impartial. Seems that GS has decided that route is for suckers.
Hey gamers xbox really sucks!! Lol not for the games which I have no problem with but why do u need a freaking gold membership just to use their internet and YouTube!! I've only been back with Sony for 8mths and I'm no fan boy of any system just think Sony cares about true gamers while xbox only cares about its fan base
Whoever decided it was a good idea to hold a conference where no matter where you sit most of the time you're staring at the back of a person's head is a idiot.
