Is penello legitimately stupid or something?
This guy is the cause of 90% of the MS PR blunders for the last 5 months.

Why do they still write up this guys paycheck every week?

That sucks! That's it Penello is officially a dumbazz, I was right about him constantly addressing neogaf,.... now the #1 rule of PR is don't say something will be free when you are not 100% sure it is and considering the bad PR after the X1 reveal he should know better to say something like that before confirming.

Jokes said something Xbox sucks o_0

On topic I agree, it really does...

Penello and anyone else for that matter just need to shut up and let the platforms launch.

How does the product manager not know this. Microsoft PR fudging up again they should just honor it anyway.
Godmars290  +   406d ago
So they haven't learned anything from the original announcement missteps. Even with new management/PR people.

joke's only being real. if i was MS i would have gotten rid of that fool a long time ago. its like he's being paid by sony to make MS look stupid... except hes being paid by MS to make their stupid look even "stupider".

I had to check the name a few times. I can't believe you wrote that. We might need to send the cops to Jokes house because someone stole his computer.
christocolus  +   406d ago

take it easy dude, i feel the guy is under so much pressure preparing for launch and all, he is bound to make some errors. but stuff like this should be thought about properly before going out to make announcments..i feel sorry for him though launching a console is insane and im sure the sony guys too are all prepping for launch..he should just avoid the media till launch...

M$ and the word free don't make me laugh, stuff thats free everywhere else is stuck behind a M$ paywall,

M$ and greed is much more appropriate.

Wow Jokesonyou attacking a MS employee instead of defending him?




OVER?!?!?!?!?!?! (bur... it's cold)
pyramidshead  +   406d ago
Another MS foot in mouth situation, Oh boy.

Maybe Microsoft just loves negative news that much, even their employees are creating it themselves.
FamilyGuy  +   406d ago
Wow, reminds me of Aaron Greenburgs older "Ryse is native 1080p" comment. Then the very next day back tracking. Now Penello's doing it.

Why so hard about checking if you're right before replying?
SonyAddict  +   406d ago
Wow did you just say something positive?.. Put the flags out!.
iamnsuperman  +   406d ago
The one job you have to do in PR is to make positive news about your product. So saying one thing just for the total opposite thing to happen is making your job a lot hardier.

Rule number one. If your going to announce something make sure it is correct information

Can MS PLEASE fire this guy!?!? Is he serious? I mean this guy is an idiot!
Majin-vegeta  +   406d ago
They need to fire every moron in the gaming department and actually contract gaming people.
xHeavYx  +   406d ago
They would have no employees left
Omegasyde  +   406d ago
I actually like him and admire that he tried to be honest and straight despite the rest of MS being shady.

I bet he is a good person to know outside of gaming, and all of his friends think he's awesome to hang out with.

One day, I will travel on an adventure to see him and form an epic friendship with him like no other.

I feel bad for this guy, he was trying to ease the pain because of no more MP3 support and CD burning for Xbox One, and he created a big problem now.
yarbie1000  +   406d ago
you can stream MP3s with DLNA
Omegasyde  +   406d ago
Yes but can you play games while streaming from DLNA? Honest question - awesome if true.

Personally, I prefer to stream with others using DNA.
Stick89  +   406d ago
Can you provide a link or can someone else confirm that Xbox One doesn't play MP3's?
Whitefire  +   406d ago
Press release a while ago. They said you can use DNLA but not confirmed at launch yet.

iceman06  +   406d ago
You know...I felt bad for him previously. However, at this point, he is digging his own grave. How in the hell does the PR person NOT know something this simple BEFORE proclaiming to the world that it is free. That is just beyond the scope! He just needs to lay back, do some serious research, and come back when he actually has something to say that is TRUE and at the same time positive!!! Misdirection, back peddling, denial, and spin is not going to cut it! Why is it so damn hard for him to sell the console. Admittedly, I'm not getting one any time soon...and even I could sell the damn thing better than him.
Whitefire  +   406d ago
Point taken.
timotim  +   406d ago
What are you talking about? You surely can play MP3s on the platform.

Remember when panello was comparing specs on NeoGaf?

And then a mod scolded him and told him to send an expert instead.

Stahp!! You're killing me, Penello! And once again, people experience the feeling of Microsoft yanking the rug from under their feet.
izumo_lee  +   406d ago
It seems more & more that everyone at Microsoft is not on the same page when handling the Xbone at all. There seems to be no leadership or anyone in charge to make the final words on what is said & what is not said.

More & more it looks like Microsoft wasn't ready for the next gen as quickly as they thought. To disorganized so far really.
GraveLord  +   406d ago
Microsoft continues to not know what the hell they're talking about.
yarbie1000  +   406d ago
Xbox still has snapping which means you can run multiple apps at the same time.

there are currently several free music apps on Xbox 360. Why not use one of those? Or snap in Youtube and play your music playlist.

Or use DLNA to stream your music.

With PS4 - The only way to listen to music is to subscribe to Music Unlimited

um you mean the samething my vita has? multiple apps at the sametime is such a amazing feature especially on a handheld. The only way to listen to music is threw music unlimited huh? well my tune in radio app on PS3 and vita says hello.
WeAreLegion  +   406d ago
"there are currently several free music apps on the Xbox 360. Why not use one of those?"

Because this is the Xbox One.

"Or snap in YouTube and play your music playlist."

Because it hasn't been confirmed for launch.

"Or use DLNA to stream your music."

Microsoft confirmed the Xbox One will be DLNA-compatible, but the company is still working on getting the console DLNA-certified. (From an article: http://www.escapistmagazine...

It won't be there at launch, just like the PS4. Sony is working to get DLNA on the PS4, as well.

I've learned that to higher positions within a company, you have to have no idea what you are doing. I don't know much about Public Relations. So, I believe I should be able to fit right in.
