Did Microsoft Shut Up The Xbox One Haters For Good?

The Tyuno Project: "On June 19, Microsoft made an big announcement about the Xbox One. Microsoft made some big changes that made a ton of gamers very happy. Microsoft is trying to fix their reputation and to please their audience. It seems that people are starting to see Microsoft and the Xbox One in a positive view, but I wonder if there are people still hating on the Xbox One?" (Forza Motorsport 5, Killer Instinct, TitanFall, Xbox One)

Yeah on my PC lol.

Also, Did the PS4 destroying Xbox One in pre-orders shut the Sony haters for good?

There will ALWAYS be fanboys around, no matter how irrational and biased they'll sound.
ChozenWoan  +   619d ago
Yep I've seen Titan Fall
and I've got a PC.... and the game is on 360 as well.

Those who have been around gaming for a while can tell when a game is on a Limited Time Exclusive contract. EA wants money and MS gave them some to publish this game so it could be claimed as an exclusive. Well ok at launch it will be, but after a year it will come to PS consoles... even if EA has to publish Titan Fall: Sigma.

If it's at a lesser pricce point? Sure... That was the problem with MS, it's not that you can't do this kind of DRM, Steam have been doing this for a long time and everyone loves 'em, because the DRM downside is balanced with really sweet prices. You can't expect DRM to be readily accepted with no counter points. Now, on Titanfall, I'll say wait and see, as it's also not on Steam, but on Origin (which is also yet to prove their system worth).
Thegamer41  +   619d ago
I will repeat what i have said in another post.
I never understood why people consider titan fall an exclusive when its coming to pc as well, you don't see anyone trying to claim planetside 2 or the other free to play MMO games to be PS4 exclusives.
knockknockannefrank  +   619d ago
well now its just back to hating on kinect, useless tv features, $100 extra and having to pay for xbox live just to use netflix

I'm also curious to see if they have hardware issues again this time around
JokesOnYou  +   619d ago
Well Hammad since getting the pc version is so "lol", ironicly the pc version doesnt match the X1 game this time lol, according to Respawn themselves the best version of Titanfall is on X1....on topic NO fanboys by definition will always hate the other console.

Yes, will look great on my gaming PC!

Microsoft will shut me up when they either lower the price to the same as the ps4 or offer me the option to buy the console without kinect for the same price as the ps4.

Oh, you mean the multiplayer only 6vs6 mech game? Eh

The same old excuse if it is not on a Sony console, "I'll just play it on PC". I can pretend say the same with DC Universe and Planetside 2 as well but I can't because my laptop from 2 years ago cannot run these games. I bet many people have the same issue to.

Anyways, Titanfall on Xbox1 this Spring. Can't wait. :)

a_bro  +   619d ago
they got rid of the DRM, thats a good thing, but theres still a lot more they have to do, like for instance,supporting indie gaming, and that price point. in my opinion i dont think there's much you can do with the kinect, but im not a game developer, so i dont know what games can be implemented and enhanced to make our core games better and fun. so they have to prove to us that $500 system with the kinect is worth the cost.

but they got rid of the DRM, that was the dealbreaker for me. my internet connection is "untrustworthy" so i would of hated and "always online" console. but its gone, and now, I have the thought of buying the console, but after i buy a PS4.

microsoft wanted to shove it down our throats, just like what they wanted to do with HD-DVD after they went to the bargaining table with Warner Bros. when they told them they wanted to kill the disc format and go all digital.

If anything, let that transition to digital take its course, kinda like nature. and give incentives to buy our games digitally.

I_am_Batman  +   619d ago
I disagree. I dislike MS as a company for trying to implement DRM, treating indie devs bad, and a couple of other reasons however I think that the Xbox One has a lot of potential to be a great console. My main reason for not buying it at launch is that I don't trust MS. They could switch the focus to casual gamers when the X1 reaches a pricepoint where it'll be affordable for everyone similar to how they did with the 360. If they offer a version without Kinect and will accept self publishing I might pick one up for the exclusives at some point. .
Tyre  +   619d ago
@I_am_Batman Well Said! People trying to make the dissapointed gamers look like crying fanboys are believing in a new lie. The lie that Microsoft didn't brought this on to themselves by dissapointing a whole lot of their fanbase & gamers in general with their schizophrenic scheme & arrogance. Greed has got the better of them. I've got 11 years of Xbox gaming behind me, but i'm buying the PS4 only, i am sorry but Microsoft dissapointed me. They're just dishonest and sore losers and i just do not like their mentality & their fake promises. JAllard's & his team (who designed the 360) were real cool people and gamers themselves, but they are all gone...Trixie360 warned us about the change within Microsoft, she was totally right. All that's left at Microsoft are suits and Salesmen, good luck with that blind fanboys.

You mean people will dislike MS for forcing Kinect onto people who don't want to be spied on or to pay extra for something they don't want to use

What about those who think MS are arseholes for not letting self indies publish or those who think it was still wrong for them to think of DRM in the first place. Then you have those who will believe MS will bring this back into effect in the future or do something just as worse

Point is just because of this one thing where they had no choice in reversing their policies anyway dosen't give them a free pass.

Honestly it amazes me what I'm seeing, people doing a 180 themselfs, thinking MS are saints for changing their policies when 1) There is still other faults with it, Kinect for starters as I've said above and 2) They never had a choice since pre orders were low.

People are making out that people were hating on MS for nothing and that faboyism came into it when it was more about morale

It's all a mater of how you present yourself.

1. The trick is not to take or make anything posted here personally. Once it becomes personal everyone losses focus and the community suffers.

2. Highlight your sarcasm if your using it... this is a text based forum and sarcasm get's lost quickly here.

3. N4G is a great place to learn what's new in the gaming world and to get some opinions regarding that news. Just don't think your gonna change anyone's opinion, but if your respectful, you just might help someone learn more about why you stand by your opinion.

4. Everyone gets disagreed, everyone get's slammed from time to time. Have fun and enjoy the madness that is N4G... it's got some of the best gaming drama on the net. lol

I'd bet that there will be a workaround for people that can't get their console online for the update on day 1. Probably be a way to get it on a usb drive or something as long as you can access the internet from somewhere. Of course, that is just me assuming. Who knows, they may even include an update disc in the box.

hmm, I don't know because some gamers says that damage was done already and you will be a fool to trust microsoft. while some gamers don't care whats going on as long as they can play their Halo and Geow.

ceedubya9  +   619d ago
Well, I'm getting one, and I don't consider myself an idiot because it. I like a lot of the games they have coming, especially around the launch window. The things that made me hesitant at launch are now gone, and I don't see a point in being all upset about something that was planned (and then taken out)for a console that is still months away.

The console doesn't have to be online every 24 hours and I can play my games however I want. That's all I needed from them. I got it. I'm fine, and moving on. I'm getting both consoles at launch, and I couldn't be happier.
CaulkSlap  +   619d ago
Nope. Still my distant second choice. But I'm gonna buy one now at least. Even though I'm thinking 80/20 for play time between PS4/XBO. Mostly because I certainly intend on buying multiplats for the system with superior hardware.
C-Thunder  +   619d ago
Second? I think you forgot about the WiiU.
CaulkSlap  +   619d ago
Nope. WiiU is an even more distant third. I'll be happy to get one when they cut the price to reflect actual hardware value. I want to play the primary Nintendo games but I'm not giving them $350 for outdated junk hardware.
C-Thunder  +   619d ago
Caulk, I agree you should wait for more titles and maybe a price cut. I picked mine up for Monster Hunter (worth every penny) but waiting for those new titles, like Mario Kart, is a killer.
OrangePowerz  +   619d ago
Just because they change their mind on one part after they have seen the pre order numbers doesn't mean they are great now.

They still have the Kinect requirement, no self publishing and 3 OS wasting resources. If they change those things I shut maybe up, but then again if they change it it's because their competition is better and not because people complain.
Popoffboy187718  +   619d ago

Kevlar009  +   619d ago
Pretty sure we shut them up.

MS was all like "DRM and used game fees are the future, everyone needs to be connected and follow our rules, #dealwithit" and we replied "No, we're not, because it's stupid and it's just a way to control us and make more money off of us. Watch us go to PS4 instead".

We rallied and threatened to put our money elsehwere, and they complied. I'm not hearing any push for DRM and fees from MS anymore, are you?

So here we have people saying to Microsoft "Please do not force DRM on me, I will not buy your console if you do this".

And Microsoft is forced not only by Sony but by people around the world not liking the way Microsoft had planed. And Microsoft says "ok, we took it to far..here's how it's going to be".

And people are like "Boooo! First you planed to do something we did not like, and now you have listen to us but we are so full of shit we still wont buy it! Ha ha!"

And the rest of the internet is like "WTF is up with these people...are they retarded or something?"

And as time goes by the XBO comes out and most of these keyboard warriors buys a XBO because it had some really cool games for it.

And the rest of the internet is laughing hard and long at the dumb dumb keyboard warriors.

True story!

The end.

You cant shut up haters, thats the point of it being hate. Their purpose is not to argue real world things and solutions. Their goal is to present any and everything they can in a negative light.

If its not DRM its kinect watch me if or the price or the they attempted DRM or the way the console looks or the power or its not focused on games or the TV functions.
