Kotaku - Best part of this wonderful video, produced by the very funny folks at College Humor? The blurb: "Microsoft is screwing everybody, especially us by retracting all these policies one day after we filmed this."
LOL. You know what's bad? Not even the Wii, not even the PS3 got this much hate before they launched. Wii was still an exciting phenomenon (it was at least a year before the waggle jokes came in full-force) and the PS3 was "teh sequel to da PS2, bro!!!!" so no one dared make fun of it (yet). The worst part is that the jokes assume certain features (like can't turn off Kinect, online required, no used games) are still in place. And yet, people said "oh, oh, don't worry. Microsoft got rid of the DRM. Now 100% of the people will know it can play used games". THIS right here is what happens when you botch a reveal, folks. People STILL think your system is all about Tv. People STILL think your system can't play used games. But it's open season on Xbox One. Media whipping-boy, indeed (not like it's anyone's fault except Microsoft's)
I know, right? I've never seen a console garner as hate as the Xbox One has. The whole 'Xbox 180' was nice in that it got rid of a lot of the bullsh*t policies that were originally in place, but now they have to re-advertise and market the Xbox One all over again while trying to overturn the image they've created for themselves.
A lot of people aren't even aware that Microsoft removed the restrictions.
My brother was not and I had to tell him twice
The thing about being able to turn off Kinect - how will you know? I haven't noticed an "in-use" indicator light.
Any chance the disagrees could provide a video or pic showing the Kinect with an indicator light?
A lot of people aren't even aware of all the DRM drama, specially the millions of casuals
Right. It was just those greasy forum nerds who heard about it. News totally does NOT travel via Facebook, Twitter, and Jimmy Fallon. The so-called casuals totally DON'T use those services, and Microsoft totally DIDN'T reverse DRM due to the bad response from everyone...
You presume that all the DRM drama were averywhere, every facebook post, TT on twitter for months, CNN, NBC, FOX NEWS, TIME, NYPOST, WASHINGTONPOST, PEOPLE ALL OVER THE WORLD TALKIGN ABOUT THE DRM...and No. Besides my gaming friends on fb or the gaming media on twitter nobody was aware of all the DRM drama, most of the CASUAL people only know that a new xbox and a new ps4 are coming out this holidays, they don't know sh** about spec, DDR3VSDDR5, DRM, maybe saw a post in the internet and don't even stop to read it "ahh yeah a new xbox bla bla bla" Do you actually think that every parent that will buy a xbox one this chritsmas will know anything about the drm drama, the reversal?...no my friend Jimmy Fallon was the only "big" tv media to bring the subject and was just a comment and maybe microsoft saw that and thought "mmm better stop this right now before it get bigger and bigger" they played save. Right now there isnt any marketing fest around xbox one and ps4 but we all know how microsoft invest on marketing, xbox one ads will be everywhere, the launch will be huge, bigger tahn kinect and you can't deny that the kinect campaign was bigger than anything you saw this generation...now imagine how xbox one campaign will be....and when the campaign is out the millions of potential buyers wont know anything about the xbox one drama of the last months or dont' remember or simple don't care at all, remember with all the drm stuff xbox one preorders were in top numbers
well the payed $399 and more for a gamecube 1.5 (wii), remember the wii sold out everywhere and the stores selling it at double? casuals can surprise you
And then the next day came along...
old and irrelevant.
Lmao. "I think the real question is, when the Wii U comes out, will that suck? ...Oh it's already out?"
I laughed pretty hard at that part.
The Verdict was "nay"? The question was: will the xbox one suck? ... So, nay, the xbox one won't suck?
It would be worth every penny if it did suck.
^ ^ this? ?
Way to late to the party... seems like video made to gather hits... news is old and done...
Funny The WiiU joke got me. :)

That wasn't funny.
"You borrowed that game from.....'Billy'...mus t be terminated!" That got me haha.
