Christopher Seavor says it's one guy,not Microsoft as a Whole...
Really more than less of a non-story. Considering the time that's gone by.
@dolores , your mum made that money when i banged her
LOL... The fuss that a lot of uses made when the original news come out. Morons. *shakes head*
The other story sounds more interresting especially bad news about MS on this site. When the truth is out, it is a "non-story".
Only an idiot would believe it was anything other than just one or two people at Microsoft who thought they owned Donkey Kong. Anyone involved in the purchase would have gone over all the assets before spending that kind of money.
Wow there was no need to make a big deal out of this.
He twitted it, so he wasn't making a big deal out of it.
Im definetly not talking about him, im talking about the gaming press that will ride on this.
Well, he's not wrong, but still, if you're an executive, you represent the company, so therefore Microsoft did *technically* think it owned DK. The guy is deflecting it now to dilute the amplification of his comment. Twitter = publishing. Be careful what you say. Microsoft has a *whole* could never say that, as it's a single entity. The nature of being an executive is to act on behalf of the organisation. So therefore, your comments = Microsoft's comments. The guy's backtracking.
He's not backtracking, he's just clarifying. Seavor hates Microsoft just as much as everyone else.
Nah, he is. Again, if it's an executive, it's Microsoft. He is suggesting an executive doesn't represent MS sentiment.
By your logic if a Microsoft executive were found to be a cross dresser than all of Microsoft are cross dressers. Just because he's an executive doesn't mean he knows what's going on. Just look at what happened after the Xbox One reveal. We got different answers every time anyone talked to a Microsoft executive. Unless it's someone specifically tasked with talking to the media then they don't represent the official stance of the company.
The thing is not everyone hates MS!
This whole thing is stupid. It was worth hearing about for a quick chuckle, but now of course it gets blown out of proportion...
Yup, just like everything from the one-time online activation of xbox1 (oh, what about low income gamers? :\) to the Dead Rising 3 smartglass integration complaint, the same 20 or so diehards here make everything that MS do seems catastrophic in nature. LOL
My thoughts exactly. I read the first story and thought; "Ha, that's pretty funny." Nothing else, no further explanation is necessary. This is such a non-issue, similar to Major Nelson telling people that Conan edited the scene of his interview to make it funnier. Obviously! We don't need PR trying fix every little thing to the point where what becomes more obvious is their lack of a sense of humor.
