Best Buy E3 Experience events being ambushed by Microsoft in order to push Xbox One?

Wow, this is some pretty crazy stuff. Microsoft is certainly in damage control mode with Xbox One right now. They're trying to sway people back in their direction. Apparently, one of the ways they're trying to do so is by hitting up Nintendo's Best Buy E3 Experience Event.

That low class attitude.

Sometime rich people can have no class at all.

Dinald Trump is one of them

Microsoft didn't see this sh*t coming? They were arrogant enough to "lead" next gen into a new "era" by trying to change things that customers and gamers take for granted. What did they expect gamers to do in return? Roll over??

I think they made a wrong estimation to consider gamers as a niche small crowd out there compared to the mass casuals. They were wrong to consider that gamers wouldn't make a dent in their armor, and now the sh*t has hit the fan.

It's just sad now. The Xbox isn't even out yet. But from the moment it was announced, it's been downhill from then. Worst part is Microsoft is absolutely adamant about its crazy decisions.

...and now this. Very low.

the guy in the photo doesn't look like the kind of person i would get credible information from anyway. he looks lost like he can't find the xbox one...just listen for the crickets and you'll find it

I was at the Nintendo event yesterday and this didn't happen. It was just a ton of really excited Nintendo fans drooling over Wind Waker HD.

I'm not saying it isn't happening, but I'd like to see more reports on how prevalent this is. It could just be a rogue MS employee playing resident fanboy.

manaxknight11646d ago

same here. if anything everyone at the bb i went to was bashing the microsuck xbone1 so i think even if microsuck was there, they prolly would've been told to get lost

rainslacker1645d ago (Edited 1645d ago )

Could be just some guy in a MS shirt. Seriously if MS was going to go and do something like that, why be so overt about it?

Or maybe it was an honest question, and they wonder why people would want a Wii U over a X1...maybe it was market research for them trying to figure out why people are so upset?

Wow, really hope this is not true. It only gets worse for MS.

Powerhousek1646d ago

Absolutely true. I was at the North Olmstead, OH Best Buy last night for the Nintendo event and I can confirm the MS Rep was there.

It was really funny, a few guys in line were talking about the Xbox One and ripping on it, and he came up behind them trying to defend it.
He kept walking up to the front of the line and asking the Nintendo Rep questions. The Nintendo rep would not tell us what he was asking but said if he answered he could have been fired based on the questions being asked.

Just pathetic.

P.S>For anyone going to the Nintendo Best Buy event on Saturday. The Nintendo Rep advised he they have permission based on demand to extend the hours until 8PM on Saturday.

Benjaminkno1645d ago

Yeah the EXtortionBox reveal is bad enough.

Godmars2901646d ago

How dare they shove themselves into another company's promotion after screwing up their own so badly and repeatedly.

Brasi19891645d ago

I just told them I already have a Cable Box.

Ben Dover1646d ago

I bet that person on the picture is Foxgod!

Shadow Flare1646d ago (Edited 1646d ago )

And it looks like Microsoft pay him in donuts

He's clearly worked hard

Qrphe1645d ago

"What are you doing at Best Buy?"
"Nothing, just shilling"

ZeekQuattro1645d ago
