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.

majiebeast1170d ago

How does the product manager not know this. Microsoft PR fudging up again they should just honor it anyway.

Godmars2901170d ago

So they haven't learned anything from the original announcement missteps. Even with new management/PR people.

PoSTedUP1170d ago

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".

Deathdeliverer1170d ago

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.

christocolus1170d 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...

amiga-man1170d ago

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.

xHeavYx1170d ago

I said it before, Penello is another double agent, the first one being Mr Mattrick

Omegasyde1170d ago

Wow Jokesonyou attacking a MS employee instead of defending him?




OVER?!?!?!?!?!?! (bur... it's cold)

pyramidshead1170d ago

Another MS foot in mouth situation, Oh boy.

Maybe Microsoft just loves negative news that much, even their employees are creating it themselves.

FamilyGuy1170d 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?

SonyAddict1170d ago

Wow did you just say something positive?.. Put the flags out!.

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

hawkeyejonjon1170d ago

Yeah every time he opens his mouth it is somehow wrong lol

Damn Albert Penello you are on a roll on being wrong

True_Samurai1170d ago (Edited 1170d ago )

Smfh Penello....

timotim1170d ago

Can MS PLEASE fire this guy!?!? Is he serious? I mean this guy is an idiot!

Majin-vegeta1170d ago

They need to fire every moron in the gaming department and actually contract gaming people.

xHeavYx1170d ago

They would have no employees left

Omegasyde1170d 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.

AngelicIceDiamond1170d ago

MS once again, and again drops the ball...

Sci0n1170d ago (Edited 1170d ago )
