Microsoft and the greatest hoax ever told

When they said black, now they say white.

Xbox One and Microsoft probably lost their credibility by changing concepts which were the bases of the new console. (Next-Gen, Xbox One)

"Sorry Microsoft, your product, now so close to the consumer as the competition, is the least interest me, because your credibility sucks. Because your arguments musty smelling, because sales figures have flipped the concept of your product"

The level of quality journalism found on N4 G never seizes to amaze me lol

"never seizes to amaze me lol"

Irony comes when we least expect it.

How dare i callout someone for bad journalisim especially since it is an anti-xbox article.

And i was not even refering to his spelling. I was refering to his use of "musty smelling" and "credibility sucks". WHat is he, 12 years old? If you call yourself a journalist,you should never use such language.

Anyway, the article is right up your street so i do not need to argue with you.

@ green The expression is "right up your alley", not 'right up your street'. Your command of the English language is about as tight as your grip on reality.

What the article states is true. Why would any educated consumer pick a box that was technologically hamstringed and built around features (always online, Kinect integration) that are being dropped left and right? Honest question, but does that instill you with confidence that MS has any clue what they are doing with this box? Does it not tell you how terribly they misread the market. If MS loses in the US and UK, which all signs are currently indicating, its game over for them. They have no other real strongholds. Cable companies aren't partnering with them because they have their own boxes to sell. I'm sure that MS can eventually eke out some measure of success, but it won't be whatever they envisioned for the brand, that much is clear. And it won't come as easily as they thought either.

You do know it's Google translated right?

@bic. I believe the term is hamstrung.

They certainly haven't been expiring a lot of confidence in the Xbox One lately, what with all the features that it was previously build around being dropped.

I guess they're just trying to get ready for summer by busting out the flip flops.

On the contrary, it seems as if they did "expire" quite a bit of gamer confidence. Hopefully this changes.

LOL

My bad. Meant to say 'inspiring'.

The trust people have in them is clearly diminishing as times goes on. Can they restore it? That remains to be seen. God the 360 was a good console.
SolidDuck  +   386d ago
The 360 was a good console. Really good. But I felt it had a much stronger first 4 years. The last 3 haven't been that great. I also loved the original xbox. but I feel like MS has been losing its way for awhile now. At this point I've pre ordered a ps4. I don't trust MS at this point, and Sony seems to have there Sh!t together. Just my opinion tho.
