That's bold.

unless MS can back it up and make something better next gen. Something, exclusive.

This guy is probably upset because there is no Kinect support on Far Cry 3

Oh no. An MS developer said something. better start attacking him, MS and the whole gaming library by making completely irrelevant comments that has nothing to do with the article.

LMFAO like a game being exclusive or not has ANYTHING to do with narrative.

I agree with Richard that the narration of Far Cry 3 failed. It was a great game and I enjoyed most aspects of it, but i never gave any thought to the narrative as to me it just wasn't memorable. I found myself just wanting to push forward and enjoy the gameplay rather then the actual story itself. It just didn't seem to matter to me. But that just me. When I compare it to the levels of Uncharted and the recent Tomb Raider, I think the narrative in Far Cry 3 was nowhere near as good as said games or other games within a shooter genre.

this is what i was thinking lol im a huge fan of ms games too and the 360 but even i can admit they suck at story telling. even halo's stories are mediocre at best

When Microsoft can come out with non-Kinect based first party games that aren't the typical Halo, Gears, or Fable stories that have been rehashed to death, then and only then can they say anything about any other game's story.

God I hate this kind of usage of the word "broken". How is it "broken" exactly?

People might not like the story but that surely that just makes it a bad story?

Ms's gaming division is broken.
