Toys R Us Xbox One Video Removed Due To Comments

Toys"R"Us was forced to remove its Xbox One demo video from YouTube today due to the enormous amount of obscene and racist comments. The video highlighted the Xbox One as part of the company's "Fabulous 15" list but was quickly besieged by angry PlayStation 4 fans giving it thumbs down votes and users leaving profane and racist comments. (Culture, Xbox One)

I'm gonna be honest. I can't stand the xbox or Microsoft but I would never stoop to this level. People can play what they want to play and I'm fine with it. Makes me sad to be a gamer when I read crap like this.

it doesnt sound like that comment wasnt meant to be racest! its true!!! he was referring to XBL. (im talking about the comment they showed, if you guys clicked the link). the word he used may be offensive but thats how XBox Live IS. even tho it is comical, in a way it is warning parents on what their kids will be hearing All The Time when theyre on XBL (its really sad). due to Everyone having a mic. the Toys R Us demograph is like kids from 1-10 y/o!! this person coud easily have been from an african or hatian decent.

as far as all the actual racest comments go, well, that is just youtube for ya. coulda been ps4 fans or xbox fans or both, Everyone is angry with MS at this point. it doesnt make it right tho.

I'm offended that the PS4 allegedly wasn't part of this "Fabulous 15."

Oh dear, people saying terrible things over the internets... it's easy to mute people so it's not a big deal.

The thing that might be a big deal is the millions of kinects echoing, picking up background noise, etc, I wish the xbone buyers luck.
ZodTheRipper  +   414d ago
It would have been a similar reaction if the X1 was missing from that list. People are passionate about their opinion if that opinion is very well founded, and the decision to buy a PS4 is very well founded these days. Microsoft screwed X360 owners in the last couple of years by not supporting it's platform properly and then they tried it big-time with the initial Xbox One - I can definately understand the criticism for them in general but this time people really were going too far.

xbox fanboys are just as bad as sony fanboys..i remember as recent as this time last year the sony "doom" articles were coming every 5 min. ms fannyboys were jabbing sony fannyboys all the way..they stopped when the reveal date was announced and ms flame articles began when the leaked rumors of x1 having drm (which turned out to be true) and got over boiled into where we are today. now sony fannyboys can talk and spew jabs at ms fans.

its all a stupid ball of dumbness no matter who's jabbing who. just enjoy games. leave the politics foe sony and ms worker who make money off us.

DAMAGE CONTROL IN FULL EFFECT!!

Really? Remove the video? Why not just close the comment section??? Nope! Too many dumbs down too right? Can anyone think a bit for themselves??

If it was really the case that the XBone deserved the "fabulous 15" spot, if it was the what people want, shouldn't it be the other way? Dumbs up and positive comments??? The case here is REALITY Vs MICROSOFT'S MONEY!! Toys R Us is being paid to promote the Xbox One as the best console and it turns out the response to the video shows all the opposite in comments and dumbs down votes...REALITY!

Everyone has had enough of Microsoft's briding and this is just gamers talking here! Letting the world know with their voice and votes that THE XBOX ONE IS NOT THE HOTTEST CONSOLE AND DO NOT DESERVE TO BE IN THE "FABULOUS 15" LIST!!

This is where the "billion in gaming" Microsoft says is going, briding companies to mislead the public of reality, THIS is what everyone is tired of, and I woudn't call them fanboys, these are real effing gamers with more brain than any of those who call them fanboys! Because of these "fanboys" Microsoft decided to change their effed up policies and all of you brainless XBone supporters will now have a "better" console from what they showed first (at least for now).

If not being a tool, not being controlled, and seeing things how they really are is being a fanboy, you can call me that.

Agreed, that was shameful, but also expected. It can be considered false advertising but still that was uncalled for.

@ PoSTedUP

I agree with you when you say that the comment was not meant to be racist and that is actually what happens online, but, that comment should not have been made in the first place. The guy that posted that should have known better. The comment was funny I must say but highly inappropriate.

@Insomnia_84

This right here is where my problem lies. Everything you stated is absolutely true yet you have as much disagrees as agrees. The hatred that everything xbox is receiving right now is because of microsoft. Any one who chooses to be money handled by microsoft better know what they are in for.

They keep doing and saying things to piss off more and more people and their fanatic followers absolutely refuse to see this.

Current preorder sales alone will show that most gamers, even former xbox supporters, are sick and tired of microsoft and their attempt to turn gaming into a marketing tool for advertisers and trying to make us feel that we were too stupid to realize or care.

Since the two systems have been revealed Sony has done everything right, microsoft everything wrong and yet we are called fanboys.

I would like someone, anyone to show why sony does not deserve the support and praise they have been receiving since the two systems have been revealed.

Eventually, one would hope at least, these kids will grow up one day and realize how stupid it is to get caught up in the console wars. It's perfectly acceptable for anyone of any age to not support a company because you don't like their policies or maybe you think they're always trying to nickel-and-dime you, but to stoop to that level because you like one console more than the other is stupid.

"If not being a tool, not being controlled, and seeing things how they really are is being a fanboy, you can call me that"

Insomnia_84, you are the very definition of a fanboy. The majority of your comments are based on speculation and misinformation which is filtered through a partisan perspective. Here are some of your comments from the last few days:

"The Xbox One has to be the worst console in history"

"If what's happened since the Xbox One reveal is not enough for you to give them the middle finger, what happened with the 360 won't be enough either"

"MS keeps copying everything"

"Xbox One DRM Will Return"

"They are rushing everything for the XB1 and it's going to be bad news, it's like they didn't learn with the 360"

"They keep copying every word and every move Sony does."

"Xbox got owned by PS2 last gen. 360 got owned by PS3 this gen."

Insomnia, you go WAY beyond fanboy...you actually sound like a psychotic stalker. Take a rest, pal. Your obsession with all things XBOX must be exhausting.

Whats ironic is the comments were people who claim to not be a fanboy, then create a perfect example. Also these comments get backed up by others, and complain that everything they say is fact.

There is starting to be a slight swing, were at least more sensible people are calling them out for not knowing the difference between a fact and an opinion, as well as Sony fans that are having discussion worthy comments and not throwing more into the crowded fanboy pot

Did anyone even really read the article? They pushed the Xbox1? They pushed both consoles, yet only the Xbox1 got this kind of treatment and as a Wii U defender I know for sure, why it is this way, because PS4 fans just cannot accept, that others might not like their beloved console so much as they do and if it were a dictatorship, this people who dislike your console need to die. This is really the picture now.

PS4 fans have become the worst of their kind, BY FAR!

On every topic now, it are always PS4 fans bashing others, calling you names, trolling, act like people who defend what they like are neat little babies. This is what goes on in the industry right now. Gaming is no gaming anymore, it is hating and hating, not fun, hating. Sony fans are the leaders of it right now, you dont play for fun, you play for hate, trolling, bashing others and acting like what you say is all that counts and anyone who has a different meaning, should get cut their tongue out.

This is like dictatorship, with every little fan being their very own version of a gaming dictator and that is what is sad nowaday. If you dont like a console, dont buy it and be done with it, but people feel the need to do stupid things like when the petition came out for GTA V should not be released for PC, this is how far it goes. Today is a sad day again and somehow I do not wonder, that yet again, it were Sony fans.

There were times I might have acted like this, when I was about 12-15 years old and my life other than school and friends were consumed by gaming. So, this tells me actually, what the average age must be, of those people, who do something like that.

So true. Every word of it.

that's why, come nov. 22nd, I'm going to be so happy to leave all these negative nancies behind. I never even knew this was a problem until I took to the internet in search of some people to talk to/news to read as catharsis for my crazy anticipation for next gen consoles.

What I found was disgusting. Finding N4G a few months back was like tapping into a cesspool of unchecked hatred. Rather disconcerting, when initially I was nothing short of optimistic and happy (and assumed every other gamer felt likewise)

It's crappy to think that something that I have been looking forward to, for what is essentially my entire life, can be the source of so much contention for so many people, simply because some of us are genuinely just in it to enjoy videogames, regardless of all the noise.

A lot of people around here should be ashamed of themselves, though I doubt many have the mental capacity to recognize when they are being nothing short of childish.

November is an amazing month for every single one of us... and yet all I see is endless hatred for NO GOOD REASON.

"but... but... DRM scandal... I hate MS... blah blah blah" does anyone here actually play videogames anymore?

I've witnessed every "console war" since they started. I fought on the Sega side and my buddies fought on the Nintendo side when I was younger. At the end of the day we were all winners since I would go to my friends house and play on their NES or they would come to my house and play on my Master System. This went on until we either had no time or could play online much easier. Back then it was never brutal like it is today. It was all in fun. I couldn't wait for the original Playstation to launch. I had it prepaid for months before I finally had it. Talked my brother and all my friends into buying one. Today, I really can't believe what I see with Playstation fans. I'm platform agnostic. I buy every system that comes out. I follow the games. On N4G I am labeled an Xbot because I don't think the Playstation brand is the only viable gaming platform on the planet. I take pride in being called an Xbox fanboy because I do not want to be associated with the Playstation fanbase in any way. You see the responses here, "well you would do the same if it happened to you". Not even close. No other fanbase is as immature and hateful as the Playstation fanbase. Granted it doesn't cover them all, but for whatever reason, the mob mentality they posses is second to none.

I guess you weren't around last gen with the aggressive, trashy, awful remarks(such as racist comments towards the Japanese) made by Microsoft fans every day on here.

Good reasoning^^I do not tend to defend any fanboys, but wh dont you tell me, why it only happens with Sony trolls? On every side are trolls and children, but somehow PS fans opened up a kindergarden.

The sad part is, that those trolls trolled like 7 years ago, so you had 7 years to grow and still behave like the trolls back in the day because they bashed your console.

Definition of child behaviour: You did it to me, so I do it to you.

Difference is only, that you are older than 7 years ago.

MS fans could easily troll on every segment of the Wii U, but somehow they dont, with few exceptions, but really, on EVERY Wii U article, you get a Sony troll and you know what? When did Nintendo fans actually bash the PS3 in the past 7 years, so they bash them the whole time? You must feel really dumb by now and if not, you really are still a child.

Eddie20101  +   414d ago
This has more to do with them Showcasing the less popular console instead of the more popular console because of money.

Not all the made comments were Sony fanboys Many were Xbox fanboys that converted to the Sony camp or Nintendo camp or any other camp for obvious reasons, Microsoft trying to go communist with there console, DRM, always on, Forcing you to buy Kinect, among other things, and the fear that they may try to implement them in the future or that they suggested doing those things at all.

We wouldn't even payed attention if it weren't a ToysRUs video to begin with.

This kind of stuff happens all the time on all sides of the console war. The Xbox fanboys can be equally as offensive when protecting there console or trying to justify there decision to get one.

The racism and rude comments are wrong on all sides of the gaming circle and we should try to control this kind of behavior, but don't even try to pretend it is just a Sony thing.

Never saw ONE petition for Mass Effect or Bioshock to stay Xbox exclusive.

Xbox fans are much more mature in general than PS fans. Sure there are many fanboys too. But you don't see Xbox fans going on Playstation videos and Articles to downvote and bash Playstation. We stay on our side and we actually PLAY our games.
That's why our exclusives sold better. Not because we had less.

See we don't really care about PlayStation. We don't care about your God of War and your Uncharted. We stay on our side, we don't care what happens on your side.

then what are you doing here? go play your games if all you do is stay on your side.

"See we don't really care about PlayStation. We don't care about your God of War and your Uncharted. We stay on our side, we don't care what happens on your side."

rainslacker  +   413d ago
I honestly think arguing over which side has the most obnoxious, worst, stupidest, smelliest, most arrogant, etc, fan boys is one of the funniest conversations on here. Seriously, you could take any of these statements, replace Xbox with PlayStation(and vice versa), and the argument would sound the same.

What's sad, is that those arguing over it don't even realize that both sides are making the same damn argument, and which side you agree with is going to be the one that you have an affinity for.

Here's the truth. All fan boys(read not just fans), are obnoxious, arrogant, stupid, idiotic, worst, and likely the smelliest, of their respective groups.

What's worse, is that with all these arguments, at no time has either side actually addressed any real topics of debate. Simply spent all their time dismissing opinion and discussion because you can't be bothered to respond with something constructive...whether positive or negative.

I really can't count how many people that like the X1 have completely dismissed the argument that there are very real 360 fans that are angry at MS to date. Not a single one seems willing to address that. It's always Sony fan boys. No other possible explanation.

Cheers to all.

you followed it up with "We stay on our side and we actually PLAY our games. That's why our exclusives sold better.Never saw ONE petition. We don't care about your God of War and your Uncharted. if only they could separate the PlayStation fans from Xbox Fans in here."

LOL! oh the irony. Alanis approved!

You don't see this insane sad amount of xbox fanboys running to ever playstation 4 video and thumbing it down talking about nsa this nsa that. You DO NOT SEE IT.

It happened with the NFL Featurrette for Xbox One. Happened with this Toys r Us feature. Happened with Kinect Fitness. When do you all just stop caring?

It it literally, and only, you sony fanboys. I think that is just pretty sad yet so funny how clearly messed you all are about something that does not matter at all lol. It's freaking video games.

Sony fanboys at their finest. To where Microsoft can't even market their product properly anymore without it being tarnished for NO reason besides childish envy. Sony fanboys are looking like some reeeeal childish people this generation.

Makes being a gamer just really, sad and dorky again. People need to grow up.

I saw it everyday when PS3 was teh doomed (daily articles written about this) in the 1st 3 years of it's life. Way, way worse than what is going on today now that the tables have turned. And there is valid criticism that Sony fans use, not so much in those early years of PS3 when not just Xbox fanboys had their heyday, but publication after publication, website after website. Kotaku, Joystiq writers were rabbid Xbox fanboys.

@Blaze Xbox fans attacked Sony Fans when they saw the PS3 had a Bad start and Now Sony fans are doing the same thing and now Xbox fans are catching feelings are you serious MS screwed themselves and it became open season on their asses, get over it your console comes out next month if you're excited about it then why are you upset about comments on the youtube section i think you need to grow up. and almost everyone had a PS2 so everyone was a Sony fan.

Yes it's def only Sony fanboys lol either you are in complete denial or flat out lying your stupid face off , check YouTube then select vids about the ps4 then try and find one vid without an xbone fanny in the comments, you are kidding your self blaze , but that's what to expect from an xboner such as your self, I'm guessing you wherent saying this stuff when the ps3 had doomed articles and no games articles and straight out lie articles , you probably was one of the hate band wagon leaders. IMO MS deserve everything they get and I'm glad ppl aren't just taking up the arse anymore like you die hards.

"Sony fanboys are looking like some reeeeal childish people this generation. "

Now I know a lot of people tend to have very short memories. But this reminds of 2006, right after the PS3 had launched and the 360 fanboys on the internet were constantly bashing it saying things like "PS3 has no games" "PS3 online sucks" PS3 is just a 600$ BD player" Playstation gamers know all about negative hype and bashing, because they went throuh it all in 2006 and 2007.
marcelliuss1  +   414d ago
@Blaze...I agree with you. I think it's really sad that the so called hardcore gamers (Sony fans) have to stoop this low. Its really sad when you have to go to any and all major sites just to bash and make raciest and offensive comments about a console you claim you will never buy in the first place. Its funny how Sony fans think this kind of behavior only happens on Xbox. There has always been stupid and raciest people on PS3, the only problem was you couldn't hear them because Sony did't include a headset.

Then they only thing i hear from Sony fans to justify this behavior is..."Well back when the PS3 came out and almost failed Xbox fans made fun of it too!" This right here is the lamest excuse I've ever heard. Even thought it's true that some Xbox fans did make fun, they where still out numbered by Sony fans since the Xbox didn't sell to well and it wasn't half this bad. Sony was still able to market and turn the PS3 around with very little to no trolling. So why can't Microsoft have an opportunity to do the same? This sh** happened almost a decade ago and it's sad they held a grudge this long. Plus Xbox fans wasn't going to major retail store websites like Sony fans are just to try to make the PS3 and Sony look bad.

So Blaze i feel you. These lame ass fanboys need to go away and let the people enjoy whatever console they choose. This is the reason why gaming will never grow up and why other forms of media will never take us and gaming seriously.

My God.

No, it is not a problem with "SONY" fanboys. Fanboys in general are just as bad as each either.

Seriously, how could you possibly come to the conclusion that one group of people, taken from the same random population as another group, could possibly come out as so much worse?

Sure, the fanboyism is bad. The only reason why things like this happen, is due to the sheer increase in number of Sony fans stemming from Microsoft mishaps.

You don't see this same extent on Sony videos because there isn't the same amount of Microsoft fans less.

Go on any video on the Playstation channel though, you should find some Xbox Fan commenting pretty quickly.

@Blaze:

Bullcrap.

I agree that those childish and racist comments were by sony fans, and they deserve all the scorn anyone can heap on them. I have also seen similar things by Microsoft fans, and of equal measure; not just on videos, but on this very site.

Hip Hop gamer was the only big, actively Pro PS3 site out there for a long time and he was the only one that was banned from N4G. Everyone else puts out bullcrap, every single thing that people tried to pin on HHG everyone else was doing as well, but he was singled-out and banned from here.

If Sony fans had any control on this site, Kotaku would have been gone, plain as day; as well as some others who have plainly lied in articles and reviews and have been caught, made videos to intentionally use PS3 footage as x360 footage and been caught yet none of them have been banned.

What MS fans are missing is their past entitlement on this site where mentioning anything positive about the PS3 got people de-bubbled, if not censored outright. That is not happening anymore, and now MS fans this this site is engorged with Sony fans. All anyone has to do is search the past on this site and all will be made clear. None of the people who make these claims will do that because it won't support their re-imagining of history, white-washed and overwritten.

HHG was insulted many times with obvious racial overtones, and lesser minds with greater numbers prevailed.

You know, in a war, at some point, were the damage is on both sides, it doesnt matter anymore, who startet or who did not, it only matters, what happens nowaday. Doing the same thing, doesnt mark you any better as they were back then ;)

I as a Nintendo fan am used to trolling on every article about Nintendo. Yet if I remember the trolls, it like almost always are Sony trolls, not MS ones. This is what people meant, when they said, staying on their side. I dont go troll Sonys articles or MS articles, MS fans most times, other than the die hards, do not troll on the Nintendo articles, but on every nintendo article, there is a whole swarm of those Sony fanboys and this is no coincidence. Sony fans talk about mature games, but really are the most immature.
maniacmayhem  +   414d ago
The best part about some of these arguments is the:

"Xbox fans did it to us (PS3 fans) now it's our turn to get them back"

If that's not the very definition of childish then I don't know what is.

It seems Sony fanboys have had a grudge for EIGHT years and have been waiting to get this out. You mean in those EIGHT years no one has matured and moved on? This isn't some middle east war or something else that is deep and stained in blood, this is video games we are talking about.

Any one who uses that excuse is just as sad as the fanboys who make gamers look bad.

Time to grow up people, no problem discussing your favorite console of choice but when you purposely troll, bad mouth and just a straight up d*&k just because someone did it to you years ago then I think professional help is needed.

To me, the PS4 seems like a great game console. The X1 seems to be that and more. I wish Sony a good rebound, something needs to really make it some steady money. I will be getting a X1, at some point, but as long as the 360 is supported I all be on it, still having a blast. The petty, spoiled, and tasteless people that "besieged" Toysrus , should come to N4G, they'd fit right in. ;D
Seriously, indignation should be expressed without harsh language, or demeaning words and threats.(I am not sure, if that applies to the male, 12-25, demographic) and it should always be civil. Tempers flare, squash the fires with reason; however, and true debate can take place.

So although I agree with you on the fact that people shouldn't have written raciest or insulting remarks on the video, I also don't like the fact that Toys R Us were not honest when making there top 15 products this year. If Xbox is number one, most people would have expected PS4 to be a close second or at least in the list. To not be there at all means someones lying and taking a bribe somewhere along the line.

What makes you a fanboy is your inablility to be OBJECTIVE, and your inability to understand that not everyone likes what you like. What makes you a fanboy is your inability to live and let live... your need to insult and cast out anyone who doesn't like what you like... what makes you a fanboy is your inability to see faults in your own preferences while criticizing the preferences of others.

@Fit I doubt most repubs are racist. I think your about as guilty of stereotyping as racists are. You do know the republican party were responsible for freeing slaves right? No you clearly didnt because like most stereotypes your logic is based off ignorance.

Being a racist is not a crime and should not be a crime. Racists are idiots...but they are free idiots. Unless what they're doing is actually harming someone in any way, they should not be ostracized for their beliefs.

Freedom of speech. We cannot have the best of the freedom of speech without defending the worst of it. That means defending people like the westboro baptist church, racists, and hateful people

I understand people who don't like Microsoft or Xbox. But I hate it when name calling gets involved between fanboys. Same goes with Xbox fans as well. There is zero respect on these websites :/. sadly
edonus  +   414d ago
And sites like this protect them when they won't let us shame these losers and call them the Sony droid army and circle jerks. Where are all the stories of Sony fanboys spamming and overloading all X1 information on the Internet with hate..... None. Let's count how many stories we can find about kinect spying which is complete utter nonsense....... Hundreds.

The Internet has let this foolishness run wild and taken no responsibility for it. Your outrage disgusts me.
rainslacker  +   414d ago
Maybe because you'd suddenly see how many of those people are actually former 360 fans who are pissed at MS?

Look, I'm sure Sony fan boys are running rampant right now. It's pretty natural during a console launch for fan boys to do such a thing. With both coming out at the same time tensions are high. It is what it is. No amount of calling out fan boys is going to change that. Particularly when you do so in the most generalized of ways, and in a way that is completely dismissive of the valid arguments that they are making.

All that being said, I doubt anyone can really dismiss the fact that a lot of people are pissed at MS for what they tried to do, and what is possible for them to do again. They haven't exactly instilled a lot of faith in many consumers these past few months. I hate to tell you this, but they aren't all Sony fans trying to destroy the Xbox.

Just accept it. There are a lot of people who hate the X1 right now. Whether they're Sony fan boys or not is a rather moot point. If you are happy to get the console, then get the console and enjoy your games.

Nope, just Sony fanboys.
pyramidshead  +   414d ago
It's the whole sony fanboy scapegoat craze that's recently just evolved just because everyone who was comfortable with the 360 and has spent time bashing the PS3 this gen expected microsoft to naturally evolve and produce another unbeatable box to possibly put PlayStation in it's gaming grave once and for all(which may have been true if they had produced another ps3 type product). Heavily agree with that last paragraph.

The XDF cannot take this world wide criticism on the nose regarding their gaming box of choice that's all.

Plus the advert was cheesy and horribly done, it probably got ridiculed for that alone lol.

You haven't been on N4G for very long, have you? Up until 2010, this place was mostly Microsoft fanboys. Lol.

No the hell it wasn't. I was lurking this place in 2009. Playstation brand loyalty was pretty damn high.
GiantEnemyCrab  +   414d ago
As someone who has been on this site since before the last gen launch I have to say you are full of crap.
WeAreLegion  +   414d ago
GiantEnemyCrab - I was LeonSKennedy4Life back then. I definitely remember you being on here. Lol. You seriously don't remember that it was mostly Microsoft fanboys back then? How?!?

Sony fell out of good graces with most gamers with the launch of the PS3. We all know that. That's why people flocked to the 360 at the beginning of the generation. How do you not remember that?
Majin-vegeta  +   414d ago
Hahahah OMG edonus good one.360 fanboys use to run amoc k this current gen and now that the tables have turned it disgusts you??Why weren't yo saying this same sh*during the launch of PS3/360??Oh that's right cuz you're a too timing hypocrite.M$ was a bully this whole gen and out of nowhere Sony decides to stand up to their crap and give them a taste out of their own medicine.

http://youtu.be/0Gq0zj3qFAE

Like my old man would always tell me when i was little.You wanna talk sh*t you better be able to back it up and apparently M$ can't back it up.
rainslacker  +   413d ago
Seems to me there are a lot more users around now than back then. I joined, as a lurker, here soon after the PS3 launch, and I recall there being a lot of hate for Sony, but there were still plenty of Sony fans actually talking back. Most of the arguments back then were silly, and really just troll-bait material, as many are now to tell the truth. Elsewhere, before the 360 launch, you'd be hard pressed to hear anyone mention the Xbox line at all outside a passing mention here or there. The first Xbox didn't really take the world by storm.

This time, though, MS actually had some serious issues(at least in my perspective), and deserve the hate they got. The only reason I still keep at it is because I just don't trust them to not try again, but next time they won't be so obvious about it.

This whole console launch isn't something I want people to forget. So many people now seem OK with things that less than 6 months ago they would have railed against. Hell many railed against it enough when it was just rumors for the PS4, so I know they didn't like what MS did. I'd rather the missteps of this launch cycle go down as a study of what not to try to do when launching a system, as opposed to it being a forgive and forget to eventually have it anyways later kind of thing.

Shame for me though. I had the money saved for both consoles. I was ready to give MS the chance at launch after passing the past 2 gens due to my own feelings for MS. They reminded me in a big way why I disliked them in the first place. People will argue with me, but I've been around long enough to see MS long before they even first tried to get into console gaming with Sega and the Dreamcast, and what they tried to do is business as usual for them.

Bring on the disagrees, but I'd challenge any Xbox fan boy to show me proof otherwise that MS isn't one of the most anti-consumer companies in existence.
Darkfire369  +   414d ago
Fanboys will be fanboys. I'll never understand them, but they exist...sadly. Gaming should be about gaming, regardless of console of choice. I may not be getting the X1 for a while, but I wouldn't go insulting it left and right.
Xsilver  +   414d ago
lmaoooooooooooooo ya gotta love it im not gonna lie MS has had enough bashing that they deserved but lets stop the consoles release next month let's all chill and enjoy the wait.
srd4484  +   414d ago
Well looks like the sony animals got to the video. Do they realize the video was made for kids and moms? Always have to trash an xb1 article/video. Trash the people in the video and even trash the author of positive xb1 articles. So sad. So immature.
meatysausage  +   414d ago
I dont see the big deal about the ad anyway. Its obviously aimed at children, for all of the cringeness that is has, its not for us. Its Toys r Us for god sake.

So much trolling around the internet for something so trivial

How does some Polish ad change the fact that SONY fans were being racist?
I don't get this mentality, "oh but 4 years ago somebody at Microsoft did something racist so this is not so bad!"

Who says sony fans did it, maybe they were just realist microsoft fans
Hicken  +   414d ago
... the internet is full of ignorant trolls, and Youtube is home to many of the worst.

Yet, somehow, when something MS related is trolled, it's Sony fanboys, and not the trolls that ply their trade on the world wide web.

And all the typical MS fanboys here are eating up the notion that it's all Sony fanboys, instead.

Go figure.

I think the comment shown was a sort of sarcastic take on the truth. TBH its only because xblive has more going on with voice chat. but any console can suffer from this and parents should be privy to the types of interactions children will have when playing these games
MultiConsoleGamer  +   414d ago
I have some very serious reservations when it comes to the Xbox One.

However this is just more proof that the hostile marketing of a certain company has created the most aggressive and hateful fanboys in gaming history. Sad and pathetic. And to all the people who support this kind of behavior just remember all you're really doing is alienating potential consumers and hurting your favorite company.
