As much as they try to cover their mess I'll always see the XBone the same way:

If people actually think M$ did it for the players they're fools.... They just looked at the stock and market and got scared.

Take care to get what you like or you will be forced to like what you get.

I'm already convinced to buy a PS4 over and Xbone anyway. The way Microsoft has been treating their customers for the past few months (the whole Adam Orth scandal, Don Mattrick's comments, etc.) is the reason why I've been distancing myself away from them for the past few years.

I'll miss Halo, but I know I'll be getting a much better gaming experience with the PS4.

What was the Adam Orth scandal?

I just hope Microsoft won't be bringing back those restriction after a year. The hardware being built about those "features" was a big lie, otherwise they probably wouldn't have changed their policies. And what about cloud computing? The dropped the online requirements.

most xbox exclusives will come to pc anyway, so better that you buy a decent pc then that upgraded dvd player. At least that's my opinion.

I really hoped for an awesome console from microsoft for the competition among the companies but that's not going to happen this generation it seems.

What was the Adam Orth scandal?
He made some offensive comments that essentially foreshadowed the Xbone being "an always on" console in early April on Twitter. He told customers to "Deal with it" if they lived in areas that didn't have good internet connection. This guy wasn't just an average employee voicing his comments, he was a Creative Director at Microsoft Studios, which means he was pretty high up in the corporate hierarchy. He's long since been fired.

Don Mattrick had an interview with someone at E3 and told customers that if they don't have a good internet connection to stick with 360. Here is the video containing his comments.

I could care less that they are pulling back on their comments now. As far as I know, the damage has been done and now I, along with many others, are aware of what Microsoft really thinks of their customers and won't be supporting Xbox One at all.

I think I discussed this last friday on school. I was hoping Microsoft brought this news to us more like in a way that it was their intent to troll the games for publicity.. I would've accepted that more than this news report.

What that report is actually serious and not some kind of troll post o_O

Still wonder what the effects will be. I'll guess it keeps MS running for another round, though I'd say its a bit to late as the majority of the damage has already been done.

yeah he really said it, and after he said it you saw in his face that he thought: oh what did i do now, and he tried to save it with a nuclear sub story? i laughed my ass off the first time i saw it.
