    to cut out the part about sony

    It also looks at the PS4 as “Xbox 360 version 2″ due to the lack of social and multi-tasking features. The company doesn’t even see Sony as a threat. Even better, it believes that the PS4′s graphics RAM will run hotter, besides not being as optimized as the Xbox One. Thus leading to both being evenly matched or, believe it or not, the Xbox One performing ahead.



    The Article has a bunch of other stuff for people who want to know more about the Xbox one or how microsoft thinks Don Mattrick is doing more harm than good when he opens his mouth.

    Microsoft doesn't think Sony is a threat.

    They know Sony is a threat, and it's not really due of the features the PS4 have. It's more so because of the mistakes they made on the XBOne.

    Personally, I'd rather buy an XBox 360 version 2 than an XBox One if I have to spend alot of money on the system itself, buy a Kinect, and buy a new net provider just to be able to use the games I get, especially since the 360 is cheaper and the above isn't required to play games.

    I'd say this is simply another case of rape in which the victim of said act denies it ever happened.

    In fact, [Microsoft will] be working to “educate” gamers about the benefits of their policies
    Because if there's one thing gamers love, it's being educated.

    Major Nelson mustn't be one of the 430,000 viewers of the YouTube PS4 UI video that demonstrates social and multi-tasking features...



    Could this fucking idiot be any more out of touch with his customers and his competitors?!?!

    As a wise king on some obscure JRPG once said, "Tempt not the fates". For all you know he might be planning to say the Xbox One will be the first console to ever attempt to implement motion control to a game.

    He could.

    He could, for example, suggest that the PS4 will be unable to connect to the DoD (Department of Defense) network that deployed servicemen and women need to use, so they will instead choose Xbox, seemingly oblivious to the fact that the Xbox One will, of course, require constant access to the internet to verify the authenticity of the games you think you own but really are just borrowing; or the fact that large contingents of deployed persons opperate in countries unsupported by the Xbox One; or the fact that the the always-connected, always-on, and always-watching Kinect presents a real threat to military security protocols, and is likely to be banned from use in active warzones.

    Im glad Im not the only one who thinks that Major Nelson guy is a douche bag and a tool. Im not anti Xbox or anything, I just prefer PlayStation. I never knew anything about this guy other than hearing his name before seeing the Angry Joe interview last week and I hated that guy. The way he talked to Joe and at one point even took the microphone from him...What a douche. I know he didnt have to do the interview, but at least have some respect since you agreed to do it. He wouldnt have done that to the Spike TV guy...

    In my opinion, Microsoft would just be better off focusing ALL of their attention to PC's. Imagine how amazing some PC's could be if MS would just put all their energy into that market. Let the pro's focus on consoles [Sony, Nintendo]... Actually I also feel that imagine if Nintendo cut their losses with consoles and just published/developed games for Sony and Microsoft. The power of a Sony console with Nintendo creativity and ingenuity? Sheesh. That said, even if Microsoft have a solid product with Xboner, they're continuously digging themselves a deep ass hole before anyone will even get their hands on said product lmao.

    Maybe he meant that they're not a threat to sell "less" consoles. He was just using reverse psychology. Man that $hit fools everyone

    It wouldn't surprise me if all the negative hype around the XBOX One is merely misdirection on Microsoft's part. Just before launch, they could announce that all the shitty 'features' of their next-generation console were merely rough ideas to test the consumer reactions.

    We've got about 5 months to wait and see their final gameplan.

    I am not really going to get into a fanboy bullshit situation, but the unfortunate news for Microsoft is that their customers and the media covering them disagree with their viewpoint... So its probably not a good viewpoint to keep.
    Gauss's Piracy Uncertainty Principle: When you pirate a game, that act inherently changes the results of what is to come after your pirating. You can't make any statement with any certainty regarding what would have happened had you not pirated the game.


    Gauss's Rating Rationale:
    0-1: A game whose very existence is abhorrent to all things creative and intelligent.
    2-4: A just plain bad game.
    5-6: A game that has alot of mistakes, but is atleast playable and has some enjoyable sections. Good for a rent.
    7: An average game, should be played at some point
    8: A good game, should buy at some point
    9: A great game, day-one purchase
    10: A game that goes above and beyond the generation, its transcendent.
