I think everyone has a lot of respect for Penello. A lesser man would have been crushed by the burden of doing PR for Microsoft. Even though its clear that he isn't always honest, at least he doesn't come off as arrogant. He is the Anti-Mattrick.

On a side note:

I'm not the biggest fan of Xbox as some of you may have gathered... but I have an issue with this rumor. Haven't we already seen games running on Xbox One retail units? We have footage of BF4 running on Xbox One and I do remember seeing Forza running on kiosks. If this rumor is true, they have done an excellent job of hiding it.

You can't get RROD if the console doesn't work!

MS-always innovating

Seriously though, if you are not having second thoughts about getting this at launch, i have an invisible console to sell you for $400

@Eonjay

Anything running at events/kiosks will probably still be old devkit firmware.

Yesterday's was on LAN which uses a local connection iirc. Also the live rumour is about matchmaking which doesn't happen at a LAN event.

I also find it hard to believe this rumour has theses are the things MS are good at.

Both Sony & MS will be working on their OS's until launch so no new stuff will be on the debug units/devkits and this rumour is about current development in the OS not found on any of these units atm.

"getting paid big bucks just to lie to millions of people"

"So does barrack Obama my friend so does barrack Obama!! "

Well, you're basically saying all US presidents are paid to lie.

I don't know how to take that because that's untimately unproven, and there's presidents that fought for the people like how Andred Jackson fought hard to get the American people off of under the thumbs of banks; but you have people like Woodrow Wilson who, with sorrowful regret, put us back under their thumb and only realized it after it was done.

There's a flip-side to that only if you look at recent presidents...

Nixon: watergate
Carter: invented "life in prison without parole", signed the new death penalty for Georgia, yet supported William Calley.
Reagan: Iran-Contra
Bush: various, No new taxes
Clinton: Lewinski
Bush II: Iraq
Obama: not relinquishing the PAT-ACT

You see a pattern of people who have lied or acted like hypocrites.

It's the man, not the office, but since a man has to be in the office for it to function, at least respect the man in the office, even if you don't agree with him.

Don't forget: anyone can run for office, so if you don't like who's there or what they are doing, get involved.

stuna1  +   292d ago
The majority of the rumors about Microsoft have been proven fact! I really see no need to list them all, because I'm sure That I would run out the character limit well before I could list it all! But let's try it this way, and you list everything that Microsoft has stated to be true, that has actually turned out to be true!

I'm sure you will have plenty of characters to spare.
H0RSE  +   291d ago
@Triella

Actually, what you imply is not %100 truth, here's why:

"Rumors about Xbone hardware being less powerful became fact,"

- More powerful how? If you are simply looking at numbers on paper, then perhaps you have an argument, but when you really get into specifics, you find that each system has strengths and weaknesses over the other. Now I'm sure you and many others will simply see this as "apologetic" or "technicalities," but a fact is only a fact if it is true %100 of the time, so either stick your statements and continue to be misleading, or reword your assumptions more carefully/specifically. The fact is that X1 is not less powerful in every aspect.

"rumors about Xbone not being able to handle native 1080p became fact,"

- Have they? Why, because a certain numbers of games prior to the console even launching, have not met this criteria? The assumption that X1 cannot handle native 1080p, does not become a fact until the entire life cycle of the console is over and the statement still holds true, and even then, it would have to be due to technical limitations that make it an impossibility, not choices made by developers/MS, etc. for whatever reasons, whether it be time constraints, budgets, etc. Game resolution is not mandated by MS, so devs don't have to make their games 1080p.

“This matter of choice was a lesson we learned from Xbox 360 where at launch we had a Technical Certification Requirement mandate that all titles had to be 720p or better with at least 2x anti-aliasing – and we later ended up eliminating that TCR as we found it was ultimately better to allow developers to make the resolution decision themselves.”

- Andrew Goossen, Xbox One engineer

http://xboxonedaily.com/201...

"how many other rumors have to be confirmed before Xbox fans start to realize it's not Sony's fan spreading FUD but instead just MS scamming them hard."

- This is rather irrelevant. That fact that previous rumors turned out to be "truth", doesn't dictate that all rumors from then on should be deemed "truth" as well. It's sort of like "the boy who cried wolf," logic in reverse you have going on here. Instead of giving false alarm to potential concerns/non-truths, you are suggesting immediate approval of them.

Battlefield 4 COD:Ghost Titan Fall 720p, Driveclub delay, Ryse downgrade, Xbox One being weaker than the PS4, DRM on xbox One... always on Kinect, the NSA issue...

Its all happened and turned out to be true and all these "Rumors" started on Forums where people were just saying things and lookie here.

Trufax. If the PS4 had Halo and Xbox 360 controller compatibility, I would've switched a long time ago.

MysticStrummer  +   292d ago
One friend of mine bought three 360s because of RRoD. He still has the last one, though it never gets played, but he admitted to me the other day the only reason he bought it was to play Halo. I forget which one but it was one of the last Halos. Anyway he played it for a few months, then the console collected dust. Once he realized that, he swore never to buy another MS console. He feels like MS "fooled" (his word for it) him somehow. I didn't tell him it was his own damn fault. lol

Are there no 360 controller clones for PS3? I know there are PS3 controller clones for 360, or at least adapters...
Bathyj  +   292d ago
It's your decision of course and while I praise PlayStation a lot I don't actively try to pimp for it, but don't judge a console just on its launch games. I guarantee on PlayStation you will have plenty to play, because you always have for 18 years.

and don't stick with a console just for friends you've never met. Like moving house when you're a kid, you will make new friend. That's a certainty, there's no point letting that effect your decision.

LeCreuset  +   292d ago
2 points:

1) When rumors come out about PS4 they tend to be resolved pretty quick. Not long before I saw the first Drive Club rumor I was reading about it officially being canceled. There was the Arabic language rumor Sony quickly addressed by including Arabic. The latest rumor, if I recall correctly, was the MP3, etc., rumor. That's being addressed. In other words, Sony doesn't just let this stuff fester by deceiving the public. It confirms or denies fairly quickly, and in some cases fixes the issue before it can really become an issue.

2) How do I say this? MS fans latch onto the most b.s. rumors that they should just know better than to give validity. Come on. A second hidden gpu? Some youtube "journalist" whining in the form of deliberately vague tweets? Speculation that Sony is going to do something stupid just because MS did? MS fans just don't know how to properly deliver a sniff test to the rumors they latch onto.

I agree and disagree with you. I agree with you about the some random guy bit but it is also important to note about his past rumours being right (also note he doesn't hide his identity and he has a way for people to contact him). That is the key. He somehow became reliable (by finding rumours which turned out to be true) so now devs would leak information to him as it would be heard and be seen as real without getting themselves into trouble. It is how leaks work within journalism. It is all about reputation (both to get it to the news and hiding the sources)

It's pretty obvious that you're not supposed to launch a console before it's ready. PS3 was pushed back one year for good reason. The hardware wasn't ready and neither was the software.

Xbox One looks like a great example of what happens when a console that should have been delayed (even 6 months) wasn't.

I know they will lose a lot of money having to recall the units sitting in warehouses across the globe, destroying said units, and giving up a massive amount of console sales to Sony and missing out on e holiday season. However, they could make a console that overpowers the PS4 by a significant margin if they postpone by 4 months or so.
MS is selling the XB1 at a profit. Their projected earnings could very well cover the cost of the recall. Then they just sell at a loss like Sony did and then turn a profit at the end of this gen's life cycle. I know I would still buy the XB1 if it was delayed. I would buy a PS4 now to bide my time but MS would definitely get my money.

I swear microsoft should just open up a division in their company called "damage control". Because every other day they got some kinda mess to clean up.
Godmars290  +   292d ago
If they did something like that, more or likely the department doing the damage wouldn't talk to them.

Nah, they just pay PR firms to write positive articles and forum posters to post false info about their products.

Wasn't this a rumor a few months ago? I swear this is just recycled stuff.

According with some rumors the choice of the 720p was generated by some issues with the OS. In this case it should have been solved in some way.

Serious question:

Why does everyone believe every negative thing regarding the Xbox One, and think that it is current news. But things like overheating PS4's are immediately canned as 'This can not be true, it is a bunch of bull'?

@VaizardNL:

Its because of 2 words. Reputation and credibility. Guess which company back in May absolutely ruined their reputation and credibility.

It's not like Sony has a clean slate either. But people here still pray to Sony three times a day.

Sony likes to over promise and alter/remove features people like after a console has been bought.

I wish people would understand that these are both companies which need to make money. Sony needs it more than MS, so I just can't believe people only believe the positive news for Sony and trust it 100%.

I really hope both companies come out strong and that this annoyance that is the 'console war' settles.

Im sorry. But this just not compare to the fact that microsoft tried to actually go through with taking away used game privileges from us gamers. No one is gonna forget that for awhile. They brought all this negativity on themselves and its not just ps fanboys, there are plenty of xbox 360 fans that have given up on microsoft as well.

You all do know that famousmortimer was correct about the 720p, right? More than a few comments here suggest an ignorance of that fact. It's pretty embarrassing. I'm not saying you have to swallow everything the guy says from here on out as the gospel truth, but don't sit there and try to act like the guy is a nobody with no credibility, especially considering there are still a number of people on N4G that need to issue a "mea culpa" for the last time they tried to attack his credibility.

Just heading over to google to look for "mea culpa".

Who said gaming is not educational!!!

I sincerily hope this issues get ironed, because i know that even with the overprice tag and lower specs many are going to purchase it, and as a gamer i know that the last thing you want is a unreliable product

The OS should be fine by this time next year. I'm not buying a PS4 until around March, just so the kinks can get ironed out.

Hopefully? wtf, why would anyone hope for this to be true? Its got to the point where I cant trust any news that is negative on Microsoft. Everyone is so anxious to spread FUD and negativity about the XBO that you cant tell the lies from truth.

Couldn't agree more. It is like this with every negative MS post here on N4G. The polls always state 'hopefully' regarding bad news.
LeCreuset  +   292d ago
Follow me. Suppose you thought to yourself, "Hmm. That famousmortimer was right about the resolution rumor. I think he's probably right about this one, too." Which of the presented options would you hit if that were the case?
