Damn, when it looks like microsoft is coming back, they fall into a deep dark hole of bullshit.

abzdine1173d ago

Microsoft will never learn.
now let's prepare the popcorn and wait for Penello's BS answer to this.

Mikelarry1173d ago

apparently he (Penello) is "waiting for the dust to settle"

Eonjay1173d ago

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.

Eonjay1173d ago

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.

rambi801173d ago (Edited 1173d ago )

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

Kayant1173d ago (Edited 1173d ago )


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.

kickerz1173d ago

I'm getting an xb1 day one and I'm gonna have a blast. 720p/900p/1080p it dosnt bother me as long as the game is fun :)

Bigpappy1173d ago

When I get my Xbox I will let you guys know which rumors were true

hakeem09961173d ago

I guess the Xbox One might become the PS3 . That would suck deeply .Hope MS finds competent coder to make sure they don't have a PS3 situation in their hands . O GOD !! What is it with the number 3 .they should have just called it Xbox 4

abzdine1173d ago

the question is not if the game is any good, the problem is the PR BS and the lies they are coming up with everyday..
i would definitely not buy a product from a ccompany trying to BS its customers. they need to change and man up or it will lead them to an epic failure.

Legacy2121173d ago

Just gonna leave this here. Ill take an os issue over an overheating issue anytime

BG115791173d ago

@Legacy212, you got to love these "reporters" that didn't get the PS4 for free and trash the PS4 for it...

They were coming back?

It's starting to look less like rumour , and more like unconfirmed fact.

And I'm laughing at those below that think people are getting paid to make up negative news about MS. Why would Sony waste their money to fabricate falsehood when there's so much true negative Xbone news already out there and apparently still coming?

UnrealThreats1173d ago (Edited 1173d ago )

Well, a little back they released a video of how their new friends system worked/dedicated game servers and whatnot, and tbh, It looks pretty damn good, but this past week or so they tripped and fell into a world of bullshit

sardaukarghola661173d ago

"It's starting to look less like rumour , and more like unconfirmed fact."

wtf do you think a unconfirmed fact is genius

Bathyj1173d ago (Edited 1173d ago )

Well a rumour can still be a lie, so it wouldn't be a fact.

When has Microsoft been on the come back? The only positive thing they've done is buy Titanfall exclusivity. I don't think there has been much else to be excited about on that machine.

Microsoft just keeps getting hit left and right! It kind of give me an impression of a fight between, "Iron Mike Tyson vs Pee Wee Herman"!

This is irrelevant. It will be fixed with time.

QuickdrawMcgraw1173d ago

Unreal Threats I'm not saying you are wrong,but when did it seem like MS(Xbox1)was coming back?

JuniorCE1172d ago

Crazy enough is that Microsoft shot at themselves with no love... Microsoft is the only to be blame here... Unfortunately, The Xbone was rushed... I am quite sure that Microsoft was going to release the X1 only in 2014... Now this is the Xbox 720...

not sure if disagress are bc you are off topic or bc they are recieving obama phones currently

Obama only gets paid like $300000

Greenberg is M$'s biggest damage control clown prince of crime.

What a big fat joke that guy is.

Bigpappy1173d ago

You hate M$ and Obama. How do you feel about baseball, Apple, Ford, Jazz, Soul Music, Basketball ... everything else American?

Bathyj1173d ago

Cos you must hate America if you hate Microsoft and Obama right?

Grown Folks Talk1172d ago

I'd say if you hate both Microsoft & Obama, you're probably just good at following the crowd. You most likely also hate John Cena & Nickleback by default too. Because you're "supposed" to.

pixelsword1172d ago (Edited 1172d ago )

"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.

i think we can all agree that ms needs to go back to the drawing board about this as they CANNOT afford another PRROD fiasco

Saviour1173d ago

have u seen latest OS, UI videos? it's surely is troll article.

Pascalini1173d ago

This is officially a Sony troll site

People are making up articles about literally anything negative towards xb1 to gain hits

iamnsuperman1173d ago (Edited 1173d ago )

Considering this website is just forum for users to submit links from all across the Internet does that make the Internet a Sony troll device?

Question the validity and stop moaning about silly stuff

Mikelarry1173d ago

"Question the validity and stop moaning about silly stuff "

talking sense with facts..... you must be a sony fanboy

Nocando1173d ago

Actually, yes, the internet has legions of Sony fanboys trolling 24-7. This is a fact, no amount of disagrees will make it less so.

corvusmd1173d ago

Exactly...99% of the time its some rumor that never ever gets confirmed from a source that isn't credible...and then when it gets disproven...there isn't a word about it here on the site....but since this site is overrun with bored PS Fanboys, all these rumors instantly become "fact" and no one ever tries to actually get the truth.

MysticStrummer1173d ago

99% of the time?

You haven't been paying attention.

mxrider21991173d ago (Edited 1173d ago )

just like the 720 resolutions? those were false /s

Triella1173d ago

Rumors about Xbone hardware being less powerful became fact, rumors about Xbone not being able to handle native 1080p became fact, rumors about Xbone OS being ustable became fact, 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.

stuna11173d 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.

H0RSE1172d ago (Edited 1172d ago )


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

"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.

smoothop1173d ago

The other bad thing is that Xbox fans can't gain bubbles so you barely even get a say in the matter, the only way to have a say on this site is to become a complete Sony fanboy.

GarrusVakarian1173d ago (Edited 1173d ago )

You are wrong, another way is to give credit where credit is due. Check my comments, they are mostly praising the PS4 (because that's what the majority of news is on any gaming website) but i also praise Xbox games. Don't be a blind fanboy or a blatant troll and you will get bubbles (not talking about you specifically).

GrandpaSnake1173d ago

nahh i have seen people gain like 5 bubbles in one day just buy being funny but factual. I havent really been too biased and for a couple of months since i joined i cant get a bubble lol. you really gotta say something that counts thats why i trip out on trolls who say nothing but horrible things and still go bubbles, especially when all they do is go in enemy territory.

Mikelarry1173d ago

if you look back to my comment history i was pro xbox, but still listened to facts and also researched info that was presented to me on here. i have learnt that discussing topics in a mature manner and being funny gets users bubbles.

Bathyj1173d ago

This is officially the first stage of grief.

GarrusVakarian1173d ago

So we should exclude negative MS rumours? Its not anyone's fault if the ratio of bad MS news outweighs the good MS news. Regardless if its rumour or fact.
