Microsoft disables YouTube comments following Xbox One reveal
Yeah because the top comment was about PS4 in the url. With 350+ likes, censorship really...Sony allows it on theirs. It's just humor anyways, people/companies take the smallest of things way too serious.
The url was a sign dude
DEFINITELY DAMAGE CONTROL!
Lol... credit to you... I didnt think you had it in ya.....no on to jek porkins
They didn't want anyone finding out what it really is, a water cooler that can change the channel. http://youtu.be/KbWgUO-Rqcw
Gotta love censorship. I think the people over at Xbox and at Microsoft in general love the 1984 model.
The 'Xbox double plus good' would have been a great name.
Lol daaaaamn. But look this is good news MS is listening! @Mystic right so they are listening. If they weren't they'd continue to let people bash and wouldn't care what people think. MS could of played it off and spin everything into a positive and being big headed. And let people talk as if they're not there and continue to smile as they continue to spin things. That would piss me of allot if MS took that approach. Obviously MS feelings are hurt and probably a little angry at YT comments. Come on YT of all places? Now tell me who takes YT seriously? You know MS is upset now.
Disabling comments means they're listening? Huh... I'd say it means they don't want to hear what anyone has to say about it.
I think they get the idea though. I think they knew what had actually happened mid-conference. Everything since that moment ha been PR damage control bullshit.
Clearly they care so much what people think that they block the comments so they can listen to what people have to say.
They disable comments because the most popular comments are at the top. They don't want potential customers seeing those comments because most of them would probably be about how anti-consumer the Xbone is.
Listening? Nah. They're trying to prevent potential customers of finding out about their anti-consumer practices. Edit Testfire beat me to it.
Youtube gets 4 billion hits a day. http://www.dailyedge.ie/you...
disabling comments means they dont want the news to get out. They want to keep people in the dark. Its fascist. Its censorship, lets call it what it is. I'm shocked that they would be so shameless.
How are they listening when they disabled comments? If anything, they're scared of the backlash. Their arrogance will be their downfall.
Damage control to the damage control.
MS trying to hide the truth.
I hope Sony's PS division are focused enough to deliver on a good E3 presentation. After this week, if I was them, I'd be on a 14 day celebration spree partying like the console war has already been decided. It just gets worse and worse for Microsoft and they only have themselves to blame. Even if their marketing department can save them, the PS4 is going to be picking up some serious momentum, three of my closest friends who are all Xbox only owners, have already said that PS4 is their console next gen and judging by the comments on here, I'd say many other 360 owners feel the same way. On the flip side, I doubt hardly any ps3 owners feel the need to switch to the Xbox One.
More like putting your fingers in your ears and going "la-la-la-la-NOT-LISTENIN G!" And they need to listen.
I stated that 2 days ago...DAMAGE CONTROL!! Notice every gaming site has someone from MS trying to calm the consumers down as if we made this shit up. Like we came up with this foolishness all by ourselves. Those MORONS have no clue that they were the ones that shot themselves in the ass. Their unveiling practically made them look like they don't get it. FIRE WHOMEVER THOUGHT THIS WAS A GOOD IDEA
Ms know full we'll what they're doing. Non gaming folk (who they want to buy xbone) will see these damage control articles on main stream sites like the huffpo and think ' oh it's just those geeky gamers freaking out over nothing again, fools, look at the potential of the xbox1. Cloud computing is the future. I'm sold'. And that's what ms does. They sell us the product they want us to have and not the product we want. The shame of it ........
117 likes,like master chief. Ill miss you always Halo Q.Q
I was working during the reveal, but skimmed through the recorded version. I was let down. Did MS actually come out and say they were saving people's faces on a cloud server?
No. In an interview after. When you create a profile and Kinect scans your face, you can sign in to you profile by just standing in front of the Kinect. This is the thing, because of the 'always on' cloud system you can step in front of another Xbone Kinect camera and it will sign you in by recognition, it's not magic MS is storing your identity at their HQ. Microsoft just increase there servers to 300,000 (I believe it was 10,000-20,000 before). That mixed w/ the fact the console, required Kinect to be connect or it won't work. Just look at the whole situation, you do the math.
Thanks, I didn't hear that. If connect is required for the Xbox to work, I'm not even gonna bother. I don't see how MS thinks this is a good idea.
MS disable youtube comments ..... gee i wonder why???
its too late for damage control, they just now trying to convince people that they did everything right!! so its more like WRECKAGE CONTROL!!! MS its done!!
I knew it! They are now trying to control our expression! This is the next step, they will try to retrack every video of their press conference! So that they can say that Phil Harrison the VP did not say those things about there being a used game fee. A periodic check of internet connection to their servers. Reactivating a used game. A fee for a used game(they did not say if the seller or buyer paid it). Also they want to hide the fact that if you use it with or as your cable box it will check the internet to continue playing tv! That way if internet goes out so does your tv! What if xbox servers are attacked for 23 days like Sony's was you cant play games OR watch TV for 23 days straight! So to combat this, everyone can download the press conference to your pc! Then later we can upload them to our favorite sites. One free way to download it is with a software called ILIVED. I love it it is free.
I actually dont wanna defend MS since i feel like they stabbed me in the back with the gay ass reveal, but none of the videos on the xbox channel have a comment section. If i remember right, they've always disabled the comment section. Pretty hilarious it says ps4 in the url though xD
no damage control, sony fanboy control to be honest. Well done Microsoft!!!
I'm just glad all the fanboys are uniting for once. Hopefully if we can stop this we can stop the DLC on disc milking.
Spyware in your own house is fu--ing creepy.
MS is butthurt !!!
Oh, that backlash is hurting them alright. It serves them right for thinking gamers are stupid in the first place.
This just goes to show what a joke MS has become in the eye of gamers. Fanboy or not, no real gamer liked the press conference and no gamer liked the aftermath with used games etc!
They're probably sick of listening to 14 year olds complain about how they can't borrow games. boooooo hooooooo.
microsoft shut quit the console biz, they just dont know anything about gamers. xboxone is dead.
Warning will robinson,warning!!! Dr. Smith has let the cat out of the bag! lol
But Dr. smith we need the cat. "DANGER'DANGER" will robinson that dose not compute. my sensor indicate x1 is a failure. Robot bends down uuuugh. Robot raise up X1 you are a bubble head boobie.
Hahahhhahh oh god this has got to be the best week ever of a console reveal xDDDDD.
I know, right?
I knew this was gonna happen too much butt hurting sad micro$oft is sad
I'm going ps4,I might get a ps3 to build my trophies up ready for next gen. I want a games console not another tv box,I have sky for that
Good plan, you won't regret it. Unlike Microsoft, Sony is still releasing high quality games regularly, Last Of Us, Beyond or GT6 being the perfect examples. And you still have enough time to catch up on must-play games like God Of War, Uncharted, Journey, Metal Gear 4, Ni No Kuni, or Little Big Planet.
Don't forget Infamous and Heavy Rain! =D
How dare you forget about Demons Souls?
also get the MGS legacy collection, it comes out next month, It includes all MGS games minus few of the PSP games.
Damn why are there so many XBOX ONE articles?
It's the next water cooler
Haha! And don't forget, "Rocket Science!" XD
And it a remote to change the channel http://youtu.be/JlaaRWss1OU http://youtu.be/KbWgUO-Rqcw
This is just starting to get pathetic, Microsoft. You fucked up. Admit it. And then fix it. It's not that hard.
It's very hard for them. MS is just like most of those Fanboys, ignorant + conceited + arrogant + supercilious.
Hopefully MS does some serious backpedaling with their policies and whole take on 8th gen
Well how did they not expect this to happen? Can't even damage control well.
Its called going into something without a clue. Which given that there were tons of "requests" over the online rumor, leaves less of an excuse.
They probably thought there would be some vocal discontent on their policies(and arguably no matter what people would hate on them even if they were awesome). I mean I'm sure they saw the stuff about the rumors that popped up last month about all this. But all that did settle down pretty quickly. They probably thought that it would be like that again. We'd bitch for a few days, then it'd just go away to come up from time to time where no one would care anymore. Now that much of that stuff is confirmed, at least in part, people are mad, and they just want it to go away...even blaming the media for the misconception. I don't think they expected such a large part of their online fan base to go almost silent for several days, or worse, completely tell MS to go to hell, which is what is happening(side note: I think they broke greenpowerz). They probably thought their loyal fans would champion their cause, kind of like they did with the rumors where they just said "wait and see", or "it's just a rumor", or worse told us how it might be a good thing for whatever reason they could think of to make a blog post. I know in the future when bad rumors come up, I'm going to point to this exact moment in time to show why we should be discussing issues before they get implemented.
Console world... meet Steam... if the sales and pricing reach Steam levels all of this will be forgotten... also you don't think EA dropped their online pass because just Microsoft is putting in something to deal with the after market do you?
Microsoft will not get me on there side. They need to delay the release of the console and rebuild it with gaming in mind. Then release it holiday 2014. Then I'll buy one.
I'm not a big fan of MS, but I'll probably get one when the price drops.
Is there nothing they don't want to control? Ooh disagree's, even jokes are not welcome.....
Might be karma fucking with MS (if such thing exists) the only real solution as i see it would be trow the Xbone to the dumpster and start from scratch wich would probably give Sony a year head start but as i see it it would be more beneficial to MS in the long run...
I said that exact same thing 3 days ago lol. "Well Sony been dealing with bad press for years for things that are not even close to this major screw up. Karma is a bitch #24 3d ago by memots | View comment"
I'm surprised that Microsoft hasn't bought N4G, banned everyone and filled the place with accounts that their employees were forced to create.
I'm sure it'll happen soon.
Does that mean TV will come to N4G?
