The past few months have been decorated with reports of Microsoft stumbling at every hurdle they come across, most notably their lack of coordination between key marketing executives who aim to get the Xbox One's philosophy across to the masses.
For them to be at Sony's level they must offer (but really offer) Halo : Reach for free. And not a Halo whose online has been closed for a few months. (Is my English correct ?)
I'm not even sure if Halo: Reach would do the trick. Perhaps something along the lines of Call of Duty 4? That would maybe draw up a better reception. Yes, your English is fine!
Thank you. Bubble up :D
no free original xbox games and triple a xbox 360 games
I'd say Gears of War 3 or higher. Halo Reach, Assassin's Creed 3, the most recent Forza and/or COD Blackops 1 or 2. COD4? That's like, how fucking old? If they gave the newest COD game, it'd make a loss of Software sales but GAIN in terms of how many people needing to pay for Gold to get it anyways...
Yeah ms make cod4 free because thats it value after mods invaded the multiplayer.
man talk about digging a grave diving in it, clawing you way half out of it, just enough to blow your own brains out....smh the deceit this company constantly shows to its consumers is baffling. I mean ac2 and halo 3 are very old but dam give thos who have givin you their money what they want....even if its outdated...this is sad and just why I never trusted them.....im just waiting for them to reverse the drm...again.
Just when you think they've dug themselves out, they fall right back in. They aren't exactly making it easy on themselves when it comes to earning, and maintaining, consumer trust.
Yup. Too many chiefs all running around. I suggest people keep barking at them when they do something stupid like this. "To kick off that program I'd like to share just two of the titles that we're going to offer over the next few months...Assassin's Creed 2, and Halo 3" Even though it says the next few months it still says to kick off the program. Meaning starting with those two games. It's very simply for them to fix this, release those two games and give a gag order to Major Nelson. The left hand is not talking to the right hand.
Pretty much. They come across as a little disorganized at times when it comes to handling the PR. Like not everyone got the same memo.
When it rains it pours... No matter what they do at this point people are going to pee in their cheerios.
Seems like they're peeing in their own cereal, at this point. I agree that some will be pissy no matter what, but this is what happens when your bad decisions pile up. You think Sony got off Scott-free during the early days of the PS3?
Microsoft never stopped...
Seems to me like they should be giving away Gears 1 sure most people have already played it, but for the ones who haven't they would want to go buy 2 & 3 which is win win for microsoft. Seems like a no brainer to me!
no no no Microsoft's PR department are way smarter than that, nice idea kma2k, but Im sure Microsofts marketing startegy is miles ahead of that
MS wasn't ready for the digital future, their policies at least
Not ironing out, more like obviously exploiting with no concern towards consequences
Microsoft please do all us gamer's a favor...Just leave the game industry and focus on making a better windows that everybody could enjoy!!!
Defense Grid is a really awesome game. At least on PC. Can't wait for the sequel. But yeah if you say Halo 3 or Assassin's Creed and deliver something else, you're going to get your butt handed to you and rightfully so.
I don't have an Xbox 360 =[ Ibut if I did I'd be sad too
How dare they give away free games!!!!
It's the fact that they're giving away terrible free games. I never even heard of Defense Grid before today. The game looks horrible. Not worth wasting hard drive space.
it may very well be the best tower defense game ever made
How dare they imply they were giving you certain games, then give you something else, instead!!!
Are you bitching about FREE GAMES!? The game is good it's not like they're giving away frogger
poor tower defense game, its going to give the impression its a midiocre game, all thanks to Microsofts insatiable thirst to screw themselves
They could offer gear of war judgement over run maps for free that would be a great start and do world of tanks not the 16 on 16 one for 360 but massive battles to compete with planetside 2 massive battles.
It looks like Microsoft wants to exude the impression of giving their customers value, but are keeping a tight grasp and really, really don't want to let it go. That's just not going to work. They clearly aren't ready to offer real value, I see. I wonder if they ever will be.
Basically Microsoft are useless.
