Can’t say that Microsoft doesn’t have a sense of humor. If you want to have a good laugh, check out the glasses Microsoft brought at an Xbox One event.
I want one with a cold Guiness Blonde. I'd settle for two of those three things in any combination.
Guinness Blonde?? You heathen, Guinness should only come in one color and blonde isn't it :)
Both are good, but Blonde is newer. Sometimes change is good. ;)
Guinness make the most popular and arguably best stout out there. Beer is my trade, and I think going blonde is just wrong. At least sell it under another brand!
I'll take a Blond that drinks Guiness too.
Like vanilla cola and so on, never mess with something simple yet effective....Guinness is Guinness.... No need to change a winning formula....
Guinness Blonde is an American Pale Lager that is more like an IPA than a pale lager. It's marginally okay... It's mostly for those who either don't know their beers or don't care. If you want something else that is decent from Guinness, just drink Harp and avoid their "new brews". IMO, they're trying to entice the PBR, High Life, Buttwiper, and Natty Ice crowd.
I'm Irish and hate Harp!! People who like beers should try as many brands as possible, especially the micro brewers..... some smooth crisp beers to be discovered.... I tried Bud Light Platinum too.... very smooth beer... easy on stomach...
Lets see how badly people will misconstrue what is just a harmless joke.
I'll go first, Microsoft thinks we're all poor thieves who will steal anything with a brand logo on it that isn't nailed down!
Seems like they're asking people to take them. I'd take one only BECAUSE it says that!
@TheCommentator That's the joke. They want you to take it.
How can you NOT take one after this - and it says that.
I was going to say its no surprise that a company that consistently rips off its fan base would openly condone theft. jk, so dont get your panties in a bunch.
@CantBeStopped - you were going to say or you already did?
I actually thought it was a great joke. And by experience, I can tell you that glass stealing at press events is VERY real :D
Mate people steal anything at press events. I had to hold on to my mucus ridden tissues at some of them in case someone stole them.
What's really funny, in an ironic sort of way, is that it's really the Xbox fanboys like you that have some ridiculous persecution complex that take the humor out of things like this.
I'm sorry my assumption that people would misconstrue a joke would affect how you perceived it. I'm a PC elitist by the way.
Lol. That's awesome. I got an Xbox One controller stand that says "I stole this from a booth at E3". And Greenburg's response is beautiful.
Yeah, that's great. I love Greenburg's response. I would definitely take one. You know people will be selling those on EBay, the first chance they get. I hope there was a decent beer in it before the picture was taken.
HA! I want one... Only I don't go to events... And it wouldn't be the same if you bought it... :( Way to keep a sense of humor when you know people are going to steal them though. Well played MS lol.
I wish I could attend an event to steal a glass, looks nice!
Not overly original but always funny.. First time I saw it was at a money mart.. Was signing my cheque and noticed the writing on the pen "This pen was stolen from money mart" So I stole it.. It basically told me to lol
The cleaning people are probably pissed they have to clean up all that broken glass in the parking lot.
Lol. I really want one of these.
I normally pass on anything xbox related but it looks like it could hold a decent amount of cold beer and I'm all for that.
Without a widget in the bottom of the glass your beer would be flat pretty quick (widget = little dimples/lines on the bottom of the glass that keep it from going flat)
A widget is the little ball inside a can of Guinness. To my knowledge anyway. Those grooves, or dimples cut into the bottom of a glass actually do the opposite. They quick release the carbon dioxide and give a beer a nice frothy head. I think. I smoke weed. Not drink beer though. Correct me if I'm wrong.
Not sure why the disagrees but yes cans of guiness have widgets in, and thats what the bottom of beer/cider glasses are called. Ever put cider in a beer glass? itll go flat quicker than putting it into a cider glass because of the diffrent types of "dimples" (widget)
'Trolling refers to any Internet user behavior that is meant to intentionally anger or frustrate someone else in order to provoke a response'. That's not what my joke was. It DOES have far better resolution than any of their or any other console's games - it's a real life glass for goodness sake. Even Xbox One fans can take a joke- and they know it is a fact that the Xbox One is known to struggle to hit 1080p for some of the more complicated, fast moving, games. Why would they feel trolled by that?
I want one lol
People who make this a big issue are typical sony fartboy or person who hates MS.
