Xbox Live Booed Out At QuakeCon By PC Gamers

One Angry Gamer "Wow, Microsoft just can’t seem to catch a break can they? The Micro ‘S’ has been on a huge upswing lately with trying to recover their image from the Hidenbox that Don Mattrick and crew crashed and burned over the public in 2013, but it looks like they still haven’t won back over some of the most core of the core gamers from within the gaming community, especially not in the deepest, darkest, inner circles of the Glorious PC Master Race."

When will the Xbox booing stop? I know they have made mistakes in the past but people used to love the Xbox!
WilliamUsher  +   570d ago
It's going to be a long, hard walk back up to the top of the mountain.

I really wasn't expecting gamers to boo out deals on a gaming service. lol, I mean really... THEY BOOED OUT GAME DEALS!!!

QuakeCon have always been about PC gaming so it's understandable when someone appear to promote stuff that won't appear on the PC will get no warm hugs and cheers. Consoles edged out the PC from E3 with the 360 and PS3 so seeing next gen console stuff on other PC-centric conventions is worrying.
AngelicIceDiamond  +   570d ago
Well The PC Master Race wants nothing to do with consoles.

Especially at a super PC event like Quakecon.
SPARTAN3  +   570d ago
long hard walk? No it will be one console generation like sony did from ps3 to ps4.
aiBreeze  +   570d ago
Well it would be like promoting PSN deals at a halo convention.
its_JEFF  +   570d ago
ehhh... I wouldn't pay too much mind to it. Remember when the fighting community booed the guys announcing "Killer Instimct"? which BTW I am totally ashamed of as a gamer, booing the devs for making a game? Come on... KI was a this years EVO, so they may boo but I doubt it will stop them from buying it or using it. Remember the COD kids who swore not to buy the next COD... Yeah, they bought it.
aiBreeze  +   570d ago
^^^ The booing was more because of the Xbox One (back then it was before the 180s) as opposed to booing the game. Many people were really excited for Killer Instinct, it's just the excitement couldn't let them look past all the flaws with the Xbox One's initial vision.
Thomaticus  +   570d ago
It wasn't the deal per se, it was more who they were dealing with to market those deals.
mcarsehat  +   570d ago
The destination isn't even the TOP of the mountain, what about half way up where the ps4 would be too.
At the top sites the ps3, the 360 and the PC the consoles with a lot of experience and love behind them.

Contrary to what everyone says, if you play a game on a console, a phone, a calculator or go on twitter, you are a gamer. I wouldn't boo a console or company out of a conference hall because i don't own them, that's just weird but it's the same amount of weird that comes from most gamers. I'm a gamer but i wouldn't say the phrase "gamers are sulky, whiny, petty psuedo intellectuals" is wrong.
DragonKnight  +   570d ago
This isn't about the Xbox One. People said they didn't boo the PS4 but it really wouldn't be surprising if they had because A)They're PC elitists (different from PC gamers) and are just like that. B)It's Quakecon. A convention named after a famous PC game. Consoles don't have much of a place there.

Pretty low brow to boo something so trivial. It's one thing to boo a policy or something not good for gamers in general, it's another to boo a freaking sale price. A lot of people in that auditorium need to grow up.

Nah, they didn't boo out GMG and a few other digital services that were listed where Bethesda/id games were being sold at a discount during the presentation.

It was more likely because MS tried forcing Live onto PC which got rejected a number of years ago.

Sorry, MS doesnt get a pass on breaking the hearts of millions of loyal fans. We all had such high hopes for xbone and they took it for granted and decided to tell us what we wanted and new tech and entertainment. NOOOOO! We bought into the xbox b/c of its commitment to gaming and gamers.

If u wanna know how bad MS actually screwed up. All Sony did was copy the blueprint written by MS last gen and now they are beloved and selling very well. MS was forced to do a 180, but there are drawbacks and will be the entire gen b/c they thought they knew better than we did. No pass from me.

Ok this is QuakeCon bro not E3. Dont mention xb1 or any console when you are sitting in a room full of Core PC Gamers and Steam is on the big screen.

(Yes some consolers were there, i spoke to 2 of them and gave them PC building advice)

Wolfenstein, Quake, Doom are the foundation for FPS and all utilized the PC unique abilities (at that time) to make for revolutionary gaming experience.

So pluggin the XB1 was the worst out of the 3 because Microsoft's DirectX Box represents MS turning its back on PC Gaming and being a follower when they use to be a one of a few innovative leaders in the gaming biz.

Sony PS4 was mentioned and it wasnt booed or cheered as PC Gamers nodded with respect to a company (Sony) and a machine thats delivering the best console experience the correct way since day PS1. Sony never ditched their Core audience ulike MS who ditched PC Gamers then ditched Xbox fans with that Kinect thing.

Ditching your core audience twice and Games For Windows Lousy will get you booed until MS recognizes its mistakes.

This isn't about consoles this is about PC gamers long history with Microsoft. Much longer than Xbox gamers history with them.

MS abandoned the PC gaming platform to make their own gaming platform and still have to this day.

They've been doing everything they can to bring down PC gaming from buying out Bungie so PC gamers didn't get the Halo franchise, closing down Ensemble Studios who made the best RTS games on PC and then bringing out the abomination that is G4WL.

And now they want to make everything ok and come back to PC gaming. No wonder they got booed.

See, the problem is Xbox's existence is waste of space, if you have a decent PC gaming rig, why get an Xbox? At least with Sony's PS platform, u get to play high quality AAA exclusives that will not make it to the PC side. I got an Alienware and has owned all PS consoles, good setup for me.

But back to topic, promoting anything Xbox related at this event is pure stupidity by MS.
Redgehammer  +   570d ago
Thinking something should not exist, because you are less than keen on it, seems like a problem. Sony has one game that seems a shame to miss, but not enough for me to ever give it money. I have a no Sony electronics zone, in my home, but i am still glad it exists. My will is my own, and imposing it on others is not my idea of being a proponent of choice, and I'm happy with mine.

Azzanation  +   570d ago
@NeoGeo - MS don't own the console market and are free to do whatever they to there products. If they took that road doesn't mean gaming would be ruined since there are other options to choose from like Nintendo or Sony's machine.

Did you forget Sony tried to destroy gaming when they charge $599 for a PS3 and forcing a Blu Ray drive on everyone. PS3 was more expensive and it ended up not as powerful as the cheaper 360? Funny how that works, Sony told us to get 2 jobs.. and since gaming is for kids, what kid is going to get 2 jobs? MS had a different view but still offered us a console with a great controller/service/games for a reasonable price. Full digital gaming requires DRM that's the price we have to pay to go down that track.
iagainsti120  +   570d ago
@Azzanation Im sure with the Xbox 360 once you buy everything that is needed for it (before slim) would cost you more than a PS3 at launch. Xbox $400 Wireless adapter $99.99 Hard drive $99+ Wireless controler + play and charge kit $75 +.
Thats like $730 with Xbox live. So no the Xbox was not cheaper, it just looked cheaper.

How can anyone defend a company like Microsoft that nickle and dimes there customer base every chance they get.

You guys need to stop playing the sympathetic Microsoft supporter. This has NOTHING to do with Xbox or because it's a console since PS4 wasn't boo'd this has to do with the dreaded games for windows - live that us PC gamers had shoved down our throats for years hell some of us couldn't even play our games because of it. Hell, they EVEN CHARGED US FOR XBOX LIVE when it first came out. Just no, lol. MS constantly states they support the PC community which they tend to do for like the first year or so and then turn us around to fuck us right in the ass. Frankly, many PC games have a deep seated hatred for MS and it's brought by their own actions. This is coming from a PC gamer that owns the original xbox and the 360 with the halo 1 and 2 collectors edition tin box.

EDIT: Before anyone start running their mouth talking about Sony Fanboy, post me a link to a Sony DRM storefront that I'm forced to download to play a game. Until then, my comment is valid.

So true. Also i always wanted that green OG Xbox. I also remember the Xbox 360 costing more to run that the fat PS3. I had the 360 first and spent close to $800+ on the console. WiFi adapter, wireless controller, Play and Charge Kit, Hard drives, and Xbox live. Although i preferred the Xbox at the time I also played a lot of PC games back then. I was lucky the have 2 gaming PC's growing up. One was a AMD k6-2 with a Voodoo 3. The Other was a Pentium 4 3.02Ghz with HT, ATI 9800 pro 128MB, Creative labs Audigy 2, and 1GB of Rambus memory. That was a kick ass system I could Run Halflife 2 Max settings at 1200x1600 with Anti-aliasing at 2x.

Pc gaming community means nothing.. Stick to your 1000 hours on Wow that leads to nothing. Pc gaming does not and will not make money unless you bring out a DMR, always online game that you have to pay for every month even though you have to paid full price for the disc retail. Everything else is pirated and so the games developer don't really make money from PC games. Pc games run off microsofts ios, so do you think microsoft care about what the pc community thinks of Xbox One. Pc gaming sucks and has always sucked, 15 years from now do you really remember what pc you played something on. I will never forget Playstation or Snes or PS2 or when I waited in line the first night that I got my PS4 and Xbox One. PC gaming needs to take a hike.

Funny how microsoft is the bad guy for being honest and telling gamers about their DRM plans, and actually listened to them when they voiced opposition. Yet Sony had the EXACT SAME DRM planned, and after watching what happened to Microsoft, they quietly went about removing it via the day 1 patch. While I agree that was a smart tactic, where Sony showed they have zero ethics was when they attacked M$ over the DRM, claiming they would never do such things.
Spotie  +   570d ago
@Andrew: Just stop.

How many times will people have to link the interview from February of last year where Sony said there wouldn't be DRM?

It hurts deep inside, I know, but you can't just put Sony on the same level as Microsoft when it comes to trying to screw people over. It's just not possible.

Microsoft made a bunch of mistakes, told us they were right and we were wrong, and then said we didn't understand even after they rectified the mistakes. So even IF Sony had done the same- which they did not; Google the damn stuff and stop perpetuating lies- they never went as far as all that.

To that end, part of the booing received here was about their screwups in the PC arena. Though it also had to do with promoting a console-related anything at such a gathering.

The thing I hate the most about this site is how it allows people to continue to flat-out lie, especially when that'd explicitly against the rules for commenting.

Here's plenty of articles refuting your stupid claim, from Feb of last year.

Give it a rest.
DigitalRaptor  +   570d ago
Andrew, shut up.

Good guy Microsoft tells people they're going to give you no options to own your physical games, and attempt the biggest anti-consumer heist in the history of the industry. Is that what you're trying to infer? That they were "just trying to be honest"?


Stop taking what your fanboy friends tell you, believing it and spreading it around without any indication or proof. Back in February of 2013, Yoshida confirmed there would be no DRM on physical discs in affect of used game sales:

You hear that? FEBRUARY before Microsoft even announced their Xbone, and before PS4's day one patch.

Stop spreading misinformation just to attempt to even the playing fields and drag Sony down to Microsoft's level. Don Mattrick and his colleagues worked for many years to swindle gamers through a controlling and intrusive series of policies. Stop making crap up to defend your beloved from the hole they've dug for themselves.

i don't understand why people can't spell/use the word "definitely". i really don't. it's not even one of those words that you skim over and think it's the other. i don't know what's more sad, that a grown-ass person can't spell or that other people read it and agreed with it...

Oh yes, let's act like the instant game collection (across ps4,ps3, vita)/monthly games/price reductions & special ps plus deals don't exist.
Vegamyster  +   570d ago
One of the the big things things PS fans went after Xbox fans last gen was about the need to pay for online, yes the instant game collection is great value for those who either haven't played those games or are interested in them but personally I'd rather have the option, right now on the Humble Bundle you can pick up $234 worth of games for $20 or $174 worth for $8.25 so its not like other platforms don't get good deals.

PS+ is awesome but it doesn't justify the service being mandatory
tommygunzII  +   570d ago
I still booo Xbox to this day for starting that. At least PS+ isn't a rip off like Xbox Live was.
WeAreLegion  +   570d ago
I don't think anyone understands. Xbox Live and the PlayStation Network don't run like Steam or Origin. You're using THEIR servers to play most of these games. Steam is the service with which you purchase these games, but most PC games are running on servers created by the developers. Nintendo will follow suit if they ever have a proper online network.
DLConspiracy  +   570d ago
Which in a way consoles have a slight advantage sometimes. More dedicated servers depending on the console.

If sony wanted a better online experience they needed to compete with Xbox live, so they started charging for online to make a better online infrastructure. At least Sony gave games and deals to gamers to give it more value.

Wow, just wow, is all I can think of after seeing this. The guy seemed scared of getting booed off stage if he said something positive once they started.... booing.
BX81  +   570d ago
So a bunch of pc gamers sort of booed xbl. Wow

Obviously they were booing because Quakecon is for PC gamers wouldn't make a difference what console it was. Of course this site doesn't realize this, which is why stupid articles like this are approved.

I don't think it's just because it's a console. It's also because the last time MS and Live had anything to do with PC gamers, was when they tried to pull the charge you to play online bs many moons ago. Unlike the xbox sheep at the time praising MS, and waxing poetic about how wonderful it was they had to pay a toll to play online, PC gamers got Games for Windows Live shut down permanently within short order.
ic3fir3  +   570d ago
Hate is not on xbox, is the price of the game, pc gamers find the price of console games ridiculous , even if it was a game of ps4, hate would be equal

XBOX One is toxic it gets booed alot, you dont see anything like that with Nintendo or PS4.
SilentNegotiator  +   570d ago
I guarantee PSN would get the same amount of booing from that crowd, if not more.
cell989  +   570d ago
Doubt it, psn is more bang for your buck, PC gamers understand this. Ms has no identity at least Sony has a definite set of goals,back at MS Hq they're still scrambling like roaches after a 12 midnight raid.

You obviously are, responding to everyone that isn't talking to you. Console peasants lol.
Dewitt  +   570d ago
PS was not mentioned the whole presentation, I saw the thing. Quit lying. Also cel they don't care how good of a deal you think it is, they only care about Steam.

They would. I don't know why your getting disagrees. A large amount of those people at quakecon are PC gamers. They don't give a shit about console stuff, they want to see more PC stuff.

I'm sure Microsoft is very glad they still have loyal fans like you supporting their amped up Cable-box.
IndoAssassin  +   570d ago
Well what did they expect. Windows Live was an abomination. They try to charge a monthly fee to use that abomination. They change the name of Windows Live store to Xbox store. They keep saying they will support PC, yet they go to a PC centric conference to promote Xbox.

Gee I wonder why

quakes always been a pc game so it makes sense, ppl still mad though about the drm for xbox one
