So is Pinello, and Ballmer just looks like douche. Don just like an idiot, so much that he could have been the fourth stooge.

Ballmer is Coked out of his mind, -every time I seen him on a youtube video.,
In fact, last night I googled Steve Ballmer Coke Head, and came up with a ton of hits.

He doesn't even have the decency to not be geeked up before an interview, or rally.

Don looks more of a douche than Ballmer. At least Ballmer is funny: http://www.youtube.com/watc...

Shut up Patcher.

He said they actually help the industry not harm it, he's cool with it.

Major Nelson is honestly one of the worst things about MS pr. he's just so petty in everything he has to say about the competition. Its not enough for him to be excited about his own companies technological advancements. He has to put others down in the process. youre one of the few faces of a major corporation dude. stop trying to start these passive aggressive little wars with the playstation brand.

speaking of douche "celebrity" gaming personalities, apparently the video in this link involves michael patcher! *doesnt watch*

What kind of a question is that.if they're bad at their job they are. Off they're not, they're not.

You only have to look at the current public perception of Sony vs Microsoft to realize this. Kaz, Shu, Trenton, Cerny. People love these guys and trust them.

Mattick, Spencer, Nelson. These guys come of as oily and everything they say must be scanned for credibility. The way people think about these companies has a lot to do with the faces that head then.

Pacter is just answering viewer questions selected most likely by a producer or himself

He actually says a lot of sensible things but every now and again makes a weird prediction/statement....which may be a way of trolling us

He's more logical than what the fanboys say. Maybe it's just the fanboy drones who try to discredit Pachter whenever Pachter starts making negative predictions over their plastic boxes Lol
