Jay Johnson, a United States Navy member has posted some of his feelings on Microsofts unreleased Xbox One and just how it affects those in military service.
Mostly has shooters. Alienates every military personnel around the world.
And if that U.S navy dude is smart, he would just get a ps4. No need to be that patriotic when it comes to games.
Indeed, COD and many others will be just fine on PS4. The only thing they're missing out on is Halo and possibly Titanfall.
o.O? not everyone who is in the military like shooters.
Agreed. When I was a kid my dad was in the Navy and Zelda was the most popular thing on the base. That and AD&D.
While not everyone in the military is interested in shooters, everyone I know personally that's in the military is mostly interested in shooters. If that is how it is with most people. They make up the majority, so that's the reason people just bundle everyone in the military together.
I reckon militairy personnel want to play other games than shooters. They get enough shooting as it is
Someone go on meme generator and make a scumbag xbone with this caption!
Abc1233 is my new favourite guy on n4g now!
He should just get a 360, that's Microsoft's official stance from President of the Interactive Entertainment Business at Microsoft, Don Mattrick.
Or he can play amazing next gen games on the PS4
I think he was being sarcastic. edit: @WeMik the PS1 and PS2 sold more than there competitors at the time in the US, nobody said anything nationalistic you are the one bringing the murica stereotype up.
By far the biggest dumb pile of sh*t.I havr ever read. How was he suppose to know M$ was gonna do?? So cuz he attacks M$ he's no real American??Son get off the internet you've been on it too long and go to sleep.Youll feel much better in the morning.
It's not sleep, he's been making idiotic comments all week.
Sure, all Xbox One are made in china.
I'm in the US Navy and I'm getting a PS4. Sony FTW
I may be Canadian but thanks for the service sir.
"Typical Canadian." You mean having respect? Yes, we do tend to have respect.
Really is messed up what Microsoft is pulling and it offers no true benefit. They are just treating people like thieves for no reason at all. This curves zero piracy. People who pirate games on the 360 modify their console hardware internally and then play offline. This isn't going to change with the Xbox One and the people who are pirating are not poor. It is costly to get a modded 360. The online requirement does nothing but alienate a lot of honest paying people. At the very least I hope Microsoft comes up with something special for military personnel. These men and women deserve Microsoft going the extra mile and figuring out something for them.
If you buy Destiny for Ps4, you are a mental right guy.
Sony should send them PS4 with a headline saying we support the troops while MS supports NSA spying lol!.
Stop crying and get a PS4!
Sony fans would love for this to hurt the Xbox. They have their petty hopes. But I believe the reality is that MS will address this. And some of the features of One will make it a far better system for Military personnel. Have fun fanboys. Like your constant complaints about how Xbox owners spent their money, you will eventually go silent on this too.
Please. Don Mattrick himself shrugged off the idea of soldiers in nuclear submarines saying "i don't even know what it means to live in a nuclear submarine, but if you can't have the connectivity required by the Xbox One, then we have product for you, it's called the Xbox 360." Microsoft DOES NOT care for anyone but themselves.
"Microsoft DOES NOT care for anyone but themselves." I guess your internet provider only cares about themselves too. Same with cellphones. Netflix only cares about themselves too. If Microsoft only cares about themselves then why do you care so much?
To answer your question, another question must be asked. The following is that question. After having had a comment restriction of 2 days due to your incessant and compulsive obsession with me, why do you continue to follow me around like a lost puppy?
I did ask a question, why do you care if Microsoft doesn't care about anyone but themselves? Instead you went off-topic once again. I also elaborated on other services that depend on connectivity, which I guess by your reasoning means they don't care about anyone but themselves either. This is the thing, you have a choice so stop acting like you don't. If Microsoft doesn't care about you then move on. The military wants to be able to play the Xbox One offline and enjoyed the Xbox 360. You on the other hand showed no signs of even liking the Xbox 360. That's the big difference. He has a vested interest in wanting to play the Xbox One, you have an agenda which seems to rally against Microsoft and the Xbox brand and have been doing that long before the Xbox One was even announced. UPDATE "Trying to mimic me will do you no good. You already went off topic by mentioning services irrelevant to the conversation." How are they irrelevant, because you say so? They are relevant because they too need access to work. The rest was off-topic. So you have no answer and will continue to post messages without wanting a response, just a reaction? Typical. You also have a choice of putting me on ignore which would keep you from not being able to post for 2 days (then blaming me for your actions) and more off-topic discussions because you can't or don't want to answer certain things.
"I did ask a question, why do you care if Microsoft doesn't? Instead you went off-topic once again." Trying to mimic me will do you no good. You already went off topic by mentioning services irrelevant to the conversation. You don't possess the acumen necessary to effectively use arguments from any individual that has successfully used them against you. So again, after having been under a 2 day comment restriction due to your incessant and compulsive obsession with me, why do you continue to follow me around? Are you looking for further restrictions? Be warned, any response you make that is not a direct answer to my question will simply be met with the question being asked again until you do answer or until it can't be asked any longer. **EDIT** Read the above question and answer, or simply cease wasting my time.
For all I care MS can go home, it's a shame to the console market that MS replaced Sega because they didnt had the success they deserved. Most of the succe of MS is based on them just throwing money around. Halo was first planned for Apple and afterwards for Xbox and PS2 before MS bought them and without Halo as an exclusive there wouldn't be much because they built Xbox around that franchise. Bungie made the Xbox successful. It was a lot of fun seeing Bungie at both Sony events. :)
It was a smart move by Bungie. If someone is irrational and considers you the enemy, the best way to make them like you is to appear with the people they like. And it worked. Exclusive content and appearing at the Sony conference instantly shut down all of the fanboy hate. Once again, hoes get pimped. It's in their nature to be manipulated.
Buy a Xbox One and pretend it to be "good". Or buy One and don't go online, buy it for offline games like Crimson Dragon and the new Viva Pinata game from George Lukas.
haha, the problem is "XBOX ONE DOESNT WORK OFFLINE AT ALL" NO INTERNET...NO GAMES Where have you been in the last 2 months? The moon?
There's only agree or disagree. There's no in between. I only say this because I'm only assuming ThyMagicSword was not on the moon but everything else is fact. :P.
It's sad and inexcusable that an American company is shortchanging the servicemembers of their own country with a console, while a foreign company is essentially giving them everything that they want.
Where a company is from shouln't matter. What matters is said company should treat their customers with more respect.
No, but the design of Xbox One Looks like the Xbox 360 Slim, you simply didn't understand my Statement, are you living under a Stone on Mars? Nothing but sandy view and retardanimals like you...? Gnahaha
You must try harder with your HARIBO army...
For an american company to do this to american soldiers that protect this country and others is sad and paultry. Microsoft is basically giving them the middle finger... All mulitary personnel should write to microsoft, who knows, it might pursuade them to change their minds.
You know the best thing? They have two options: 1. Keep the DRM and basically have the perception they are saying "screw you" to troops abroad. 2. Release a DRM-free version to troops and have other consumers ask why the restrictions are there at all if they don't need to be. I know it's not a huge market, but the whole thing just shows that Microsoft don't have a clue what they are doing.
PS4 is clearly the winner here. Its funny that this console war won't be determined by specs (since they are very similar), or by games (since most games are multiplatform), but by policies and features.
U.S. Air Force AFSC 11FX, 62nd FS Luke AFB AZ. Not all branches have an Internet problem. I had Internet in Korea, Iraq, Afghanistan, and of course in the states at Keesler AFB, Shepard AFB, and Lackland AFB. I can see how this will be a problem for a lot of people in the military but absolutely not all. Nonetheless MS clearly did not think this out one single bit and it will obviously affect sales.
the developers for titan fall say its because of xbox 1 cloud that they can make there game but its coming to 360 so its like even the devs are kissing ms ass an lyin for them
Buy what you like....simple. I will say as that MS offers US military/government employees discounted price on a lot of their products...(Windows, MS Office, tablets, 360...accessories and some games; the program/discount called EPP.
