You Don’t Hate the Xbox One, You’re Just Jealous

Gamers seem to hate the Xbox One. If you wade into a comments section or ask a man-on-the-street at your local Mountain Dew distributer, you’ll hear a variety of reasons why the Xbox One is not for gamers—why it’s a horrible misstep, presumed dead on arrival. Some of these criticisms will ring a little truer than others, but none really tap into what’s really eating at the gaming elite. They’re mad that they’re not the center of attention.

The story is too old to be commented.

Lol, good satire. This is satire... Right?

I think this is serious. GAF is destroying this article. I see worthy comments and Gifs after every refresh. :)

Yeah. That almost felt like a splash of cold water on my infuriated face. Gizmodo has some balls, they may be small, but balls they have.

JoySticksFTW1760d ago (Edited 1760d ago )

reading on gaf as well

good stuff :)

Did you see that car roll-over gif in that thread where dude walks away a bit dazed but otherwise all right? crazy!

And yes, this "article" is getting ripped apart

Im still laughing at the 40x power of the cloud thread on Neogaf that was popcorn worthy.

MasterCornholio1760d ago

Even Angry Joe hates what Microsoft is doing to the Xbox brand. And he is a pretty big fan of the Xbox.

It's called sony fanboys. They run this site. They even hated the new xbox dearly long before it was even announced. It's what they do.

Unicron1760d ago

Because its impossible for a regular gamer who prefers the Xbox to be disappointed. Clearly MS can do no wrong, right?


Snookies121760d ago (Edited 1760d ago )

I'm not a Sony fanboy. I'm a PC guy. I was excited for the Xbox reveal, but all I saw was a cable box with sports, voice commands, and Skype (which I have on my PC and Vita already). Sorry, I'm a gamer, I don't give a crap about that stuff. MS clearly doesn't care about us at this point, if that's the most important thing to them. (Which it clearly is, if they chose to show those for a majority of the time at the reveal.)

Sure, we saw some gaming related things. No actual live demos though, just pre-made videos.

georgeenoob1760d ago


All this site does is overreact. It's even getting hell for not being backwards compatible yet neither is the ps4. They clearly stated they were to show off hardware in the event and games in E3, with 15 exclusives. Yet they pretend they dont know that and persist with the 'no games' argument.

It's starting to really get pathetic.

Unicron1760d ago

Is Gaf full of PS fanboys too? Twitter? Are indie devs PS fanboys? Jim Sterling? N4G isn't the only place this sentiment exists. The show was a joke and set a horrible precedent, after months of "just wait and see." We waited. We saw. Many did not like what they saw. The practices currently are anti-consumer and ridiculous. And if Sony puts the same ones into practice, that proves its not just MS that has lost focus on gamers next gen.

georgeenoob1760d ago (Edited 1760d ago )

Answer this honestly

Pretend E3 just went by and MS announced 40 hardcore exclusive titles and proved xbox one to be an amazing gaming device, do you really this hate will stop persisting? Not as long as ps4 is still releasing. Like I said, this is what fanboys do.

maxgamehard1760d ago (Edited 1760d ago )

To all the people who use the same stupid excuse about games not being shown at the conference, fine. Does games shown at E3 change the following.

Mandatory online checks, mandatory kinect, no upgradeable hardware, indies gotta find publishers, mandatory hard drive installation, paid online play, used game fees and it won't allow use of xbox 360 headsets

Are you kidding me. Each time a valid negative is brought xbox peeps disregard the negatives that they can't reason with and find something else to run with.

I game on all consoles and I ain't blinded by any company. What M$ is doing is beyond anti gamer, its anti consumer. Nintendo and Sony ain't doing any of this.

Unicron1760d ago

"Pretend E3 just went by and MS announced 40 hardcore exclusive titles and proved xbox one to be an amazing gaming device, do you really this hate will stop persisting?"

I think the lack of games isn't the entire issue here. I think a combination of issues depending on who you are - a huge focus on Kinect, television integration, unrelated tv series, anticonsumer practices, used game fees, games tied to accounts, lack of BC all add up to one hell of a mess. If you're complaining about JUST a lack of games, that's silly. But if you're looking at the whole, there's plenty to shake your head at with regards to the new Xbox, and possibly next gen in general.

Also, a HORRIBLE show doesn't preclude a good system - but face it, MS has been "on top" for years now, and "other fanboys" had to deal with "giant enemy crabs, $599, riiidge racer, etc." Turnabout is fair play, if you can't take it, don't dish it out (though I'm not condoning it, it's all silly).

georgeenoob1760d ago (Edited 1760d ago )


It's because most of this is still a big confusion. Barely any information was made clear by MS, and they stated several times that they are yet to announce details, but this is adequate enough for the fanboys to abominate indefinitely. Overreaction much?

SonyPS41759d ago

The hate on N4G isn't nearly as bad as the Xbox fan rage over at the official Xbox forums. People are avoiding this console like a dog with rabies.

UnHoly_One1759d ago (Edited 1759d ago )

Please read my whole message before you disagree. lol

I'm a huge Xbox fan. I own both consoles, but I buy everything on Xbox except for exclusives. I love Xbox Live, all of my friends are Xboxers, I think the controller is better, everything...

To give you an idea of how much I favored the 360... I recently used a smartphone app to scan bar codes and create a catalog of my 360 and PS3 games. I have 22 PS3 games, and 179 360 games. lol

I also have said many times that this site is overrun by Playstation Fanboys.

Now... With all of that in mind. I kind of think the Xbox One looks like a piece of crap right now, too. I am waiting to hear about the games at E3, of course, but everything they have shown so far is total garbage.

I am not going to use it as an overlay for my TiVo. That is just useless to me.

I am not going to SPEAK to my TV when I could quickly and quietly just press a button on my remote instead.

I'm not going to use Skype, and I don't plan on having Internet Explorer on the side of the screen taking up part of my TV when I just could just look something up on my iPad, instead.

In other words, pretty much everything they have shown me so far is stuff I will never use.

Some of the other negatives floating around about it I am indifferent about.

Indie games? I couldn't give two shits about Indie games. I don't play them.

Used games? Couldn't care less, I buy all of my games new and don't ever resell them or loan them out.

Internet required? Fine with me, I'm always connected anyway.

Anyway, my point is that it's not just the Sony Fanboys hating on the One, they are just the most vocal about it.

SilentNegotiator1759d ago

"It's even getting hell for not being backwards compatible yet neither is the ps4."

You got that 100% completely backwards.

Xbox fanboys were crapping all over the Ps4 for a lack of BC, like it was the biggest possible deal breaker in the gaming world, and NOW there are few people discussing Xbone's lack of BC.

Oh look it's from another site from the Gawker group the people who are in charge of Kotaku aswell

What do you know


Woah, some people are agreeing with him on the comments, how can people from Kotaku (of all sites) understand how crap this is and the damage it will do to the industry, yet these tech heads can't.

Persistantthug1760d ago (Edited 1760d ago )

funny gif on neogaf

But seriously,
I wouldn't be surprised if Microsoft pays or supplements gizmodo in some way.
It's actually how Microsoft does damage control.
But in fairness, alot of companies do this too.

nypifisel1760d ago

Talk about this guy missing the point completely. I can't believe how a journalist can be against the consumer. It's fucking atrocious! They're supposed reveal injustice and wrongdoings, not fucking pushing people towards it! He should be imprisoned, has he got no honour?

Sadly no...based on the comments section. This is one giant "Deal With It" rant that has no idea what the actual issues are.

If anyone reading this buys an xbox one, will suffer the fury of Segata Sanshiro and will have a taste of my Judo throw, followed by an explosion.
