There is little to know about me. I'm a nice guy, easy to get along with, I can be hilarious and really silly.
I'm in love with a wonderful girl and I'm ancient. That's all.
Want to know more? My ask box is always open, anon or not.
Microsoft. That was, hands down, the worst reveal in the history of gaming. You did not bring a gaming console forward, what you brought was an overpriced TiVo/Sky box. You have completely and utterly lost what made the X360 so great, and in your own ignorance you have abandoned your core demographic.
I cannot even begin to tell you how completely disappointed I am with you. Shoving Kinect in our faces, again, seems like a godsend compared to the other things you have going on that you didn’t actually reveal.
Blocking used games? Really? Charging people who buy these games a full-price fee just to even play them? So now I can’t even let my siblings and friends borrow games if they aren’t on the same console as me. This is ridiculous. You’ve also effectively killed off the second-hand market, meaning the killing off of game stores worldwide too.
Also, always online is implemented. Not every second, but every day. So if you’re going on holiday or out-of-town without internet for a few days, don’t think about taking your new Xbox with you, as it’ll effectively become a massive paperweight. Even offline single-player only games require a live connection once every 24 hours.
This is ridiculous and the fact that you think you can get away with this will be your downfall. Microsoft. You have effectively shot yourself in the head, and the “console war” is over before it has even really began. The PlayStation 4 has all but won at this point, and even the Wii U seems like a better deal than your Xbox One.
You have until E3 to somehow turn this colossal fuck-up around. If you don’t, then you’re done, and you will have lost a loyal customer.
