Microsoft’s backpedalling could power small country say scientists

Scientists searching for new clean and renewable energy sources have stated that the frantic backpedalling by Microsoft in recent weeks could potentially power a small nation. (Culture, Next-Gen, Xbox One)

"At first we assumed we were witnessing natural fluctuations caused by currents in the ionosphere"

So it's backpedalling that powers the cloud? lol

Criticism for all this "backpedaling" would hold more weight if it were being done by the same CEO.

Personally, I see this as fixing what the old CEO "broke". New CEO, new company structure, new policies. People tend to forget that Sony didn't start out with the ps3 acting like a perfect angel ("Get a second job", etc). They re-shuffled and changed their tune overtime. Microsoft will have to do the same (and seem to have already started).

Don't let me stop you all from the bashing though, its quite fun to read. :)

This isn't about fanboys, this article is just funny. If you like Xbox then you should be happy that MS are backpedalling hard enough to power Kuwait, because the way that they were pedalling previously would have been an entirely Sony dominated generation.

I know, I like both because of the experiences I've had with them growing up.

I like playstation and xbox though, not Sony and Microsoft.

@no_more_heroes

Your comment makes it clear that Microsoft's plans to use him as a scapegoat were a success. Fanboys blame everything bad about the Xbox One on Don Mattrick.

What happened when you fanboys were praising the Xbox One prior to the 180. Didn't have a problem with him then. Didn't have a problem with the Xbox One's "features."

This is better. The obvious ridiculousness makes it easier to understand that it is satire and not news
SpiralTear  +   370d ago
I absolutely agree, yet it's still getting comments from folks who aren't getting the joke. The magic of satire...

Wow looks vain and desperate on the day we find out that the PS4 only has 4.5 gigs for games.

It's just a joke man. Be happy, learn to laugh a little. It's not life or death here.
Shadowolf  +   370d ago
Exactly!

"Wow looks vain and desperate on the day we find out that the PS4 only has 4.5 gigs for games."

I think you mean on the day we heard a rumor...
PeacePolice  +   370d ago
So 4.5GB for games isn't enough? My GTX 680 has 2GB for games and will obliterate anything that the PS4/Xbox One pumps out in the next 5 years.
PablitoPaperito  +   370d ago
2 gb VRAM plus 16 gb RAM i assume

So not the same thing

Oh, I see. b1663r is the type of individual who believes anything and everything he reads. Good luck with that.

freakin' hilarious. :D

Lol. This is good stuff, very funny. Reminds me of the Onion.
UnholyLight  +   369d ago
Actually pretty funny but come on..How does this article get a approved!? You have a 100% guarantee that if this had anything to do with Sony there'd be a huge N4G user backlash
ALLWRONG  +   369d ago
They actually bury and censor negative Sony press here. You can throw a dart blindfolded at an idea board and that post will be approved as long as it's not about Sony.
UnholyLight  +   367d ago
I'm also enoying the downvotes on both of our comments. I am buying both systems, I guess people just assume I am an Xbox fanboy when I call out articles that are clearly a little bit ridiculous.

Playstation diehards can do no wrong.

For me, it remains to be seen whether Xbox One or PS4 will be my main console. Both preordered, but I just am not sure yet till I get my hands on both. Gotta stay open minded, none of this senseless bashing that goes on on N4G!
ALLWRONG  +   369d ago
That "backpedaling" are all positive changes that are gaining in popularity. For example every Xbone is now a dev kit.

Want to see backpedaling as it's happening? try this http://n4g.com/news/1320206... or this http://n4g.com/news/1320350... fans and admins working overtime.
