This image of a defaced Xbox One advertisement was spotted at LA's JW Marriott hotel by CAG's own CheapyD, who promptly posted it to Twitter for us all to see.
Ha...thats hilarious I'm loving how people are actually standing up to this, least most of the gaming community actually know what horrible things MS are trying to do to gaming.
You see anomalously vandalizing a random sign as standing up? Pretty sure this is not really a social injustice..... but hey, if it makes Microsoft rethink and change their policies. Probably not because we have already heard their confidence and arrogance.
Hahahahah take that M$.
Was it someone from MS who first said there's no such thing as bad publicity, or was that someone else?
I would be surprise if MS doesn't spy or "ask x1 owners to participate" in studies to tailor advertisement.
A lot of people don't like Microsoft's policy's with the Xbox One so its normal that some people are going to vandalize their advertisements. Motorola RAZR i
I'll admit it, I did chuckle a little. I know this isn't exactly the kind of symbolism that can "rally the troops" but with all these little jabs at MS and their current strategy with the Xbone popping up all over the interwebs, you'd think it must be making them reconsider, or at least consider reconsidering all the anti consumer restrictions they plan to implement... Something like that anyway.
The hate is strong in this one. XD
So funny how people don't want others to buy an Xbox, they want others to buy a PS4 instead. I don't get it, I don't care want anyone else gets, ain't got anything to do with me. It's like the PS guys are beggin the Xbox guys to switch
If you're not in the know then let me explain what this is all about. The reason so many people want Xbox fans to switch to the PS4 or the Wii U, or heck even the PC, is because we are concerned that if MS's Xbone succeeds then the anti consumer restrictions and intrusive surveillance DRM they wish to implement will become the norm, and nobody that calls themselves a "gamer" would want that, even if it meant them passing on a console they want in order to stand up for their consumer rights.
Whether the Xbox fails or succeeds isn't going to change anything... digital distribution is the future and at least with Microsoft they are looking for ways to loan out your digital copy... something that will be unprecedented when they do it. You may not be sold on sharing your games with 9 other people or being able to play your PS4 while you play your Xbox One, but a real game would be. You're not changing the direction of the industry all you can do is try and get use to the way things will be from now on. Or you can give up gaming when that inevitability does happen.
Shouldnt people be able to make up their own minds? Or is fascism acceptable now? There are two sides to every story, and it seems everyone wants to focus on the negatives of the Xbox one and its Policies. Its the beginning of a new generation of entertainment, but unfortunatley, only for the lucky demographic that have amazing internet and deep pockets. I dont agree with many of the policies but I understand why they need to be implemented in order for the proposed business model to work. I am lucky in that I have a very relible internet conection and I have a good job so I can afford to "buy in" to this new era. The xbox one is NOT a traditional games console, the PS4 IS! The comparision is not as similar as it once used to be. We are dealing with different propositions, different products. Sony is the winner when it comes to the next generation of games consoles as its only competition is the WiiU. The Xbox one now stands alone as a freak of nature to most, and a techies wet dream to the rest. MS have steered the offering into a far broader proposition, I just dont know how successful they will be considering the people who would be queuing outside their local game store for the midnight launch under normal circumstances will no doubt be in the queue for the PS4.

@Cueil - Consumers always have a say in where an industry goes.
What a mature outstanding citizen. Way to represent your company of choice, fanboy.
As much of a Sony guy as I am, I have to agree.
This is just sad. Sony had a great showing, and this is how the fans represent themselves? If I worked for the website that published this I would have avoided this with a 10ft pole. To all fanboys, do not attempt to deface any companies property, it's just childish. Converse like an adult if you wish your opinion to be observed by the high muckamucks of Microsoft.
I agree its immature but Microsoft brought this on themselves.
Just because they messed up doesn't mean the world should act like bigots. If everyone composed themselves and acted like civil adults I bet they'ed be more prone to listening, and not banning comments on videos of theirs. Some people call it damage control but the sheer amount of trolls was more than enough to warrant it. Criticism is fine, blatant bigotry like a lot of people showed isn't.
Lol. xD I don't condone defacing property like that but Microsoft is getting what's coming to them.
And people wonder why they look at gamers with the immaturity that they do. Regardless if you don't like what microsoft is doing defacing a sign with xbox one stuff on it is rude and immature. Just speak with your wallet you don't have to deface property.
I chuckled A LOT.
People using spray paint to stand up for what they believe? My Delsin avatar is very happy :)
lol i bet it was yoshida
This is news? Not even funny, maybe to a 12 year it might be great
Oh my god lol... Microsoft must be thinking "....FUCK" They fucked up BAD.
