How Microsoft ruined the Xbox One's public image and the part social media is playing in it. (Xbox One)

The article states the Wii U has seen a sales boost from the Xbox One (I'm pretty sure he's talking about the sales boost on Amazon) yet if you look at the most wanted Xbox One is #1. Go figure The article fails.

Xbox one will sell in America... They got away with charging to play online and Americans gobbled up 360

But as more and more details become public about Xboxone being a surveillance device like Germany and Australia have declared.. And the full details of not being able to lend games I'm sure some of the most hardened Xbox fanboys will have second thoughts

Aswell as parents when they realise their children's privacy is at risk......

Add all the restrictions & extra fees & no removable hdd & pay extra just yo watch tv & play online. Sounds like the original xbox era is back for an even worser new updated version.

Xbox doesn't need anyone. NDP #1 every month!

Sarcasm aside, I understand MS's arrogance, after RROD, ridiculously priced proprietary peripherals, blatant Kinect functionality lies, losing all exclusives, casual focus, paying millions for timed exclusives that added nothing new to the industry and only restricted other gamers from having content that would have otherwise existed anyways, and pay to play online MP people still supported them.

How could they not think that they could do whatever they wanted and people would support them.

I'm happy the US finally woke the f up.

And which "US" would that be? At the very least, save that kind of talk for after Xb1 has been released.

Hell, Germany's and Australasia's are voicing privacy concerns while the US congress is either too busy in-fighting to do their jobs, or just plain being paid off to act against public interests.
