With the situation at Sony sweeping the gaming industry right now, how should Microsoft react? In our opinion, they have three clear-cut choices.
Please do option #3!
by shutting the fck up lol
How should they respond.... I'll quote Jay Z... "...What he said I said has been said before... Just keep doing your thing he said... Say no more..."
They need to respond with something professional and mature. Don't try to be sarcastic or throw insults at them. I think they should be respectful as the same thing could happen to them as has happened to Sony. Truthfully, it won't really matter what they say. Some people will get mad no matter what they say, and most people will not care what they say. What we all need to learn about this situation is that our personal information needs to be protected at all costs. Be careful with putting sensitive information anywhere on the internet or on your game consoles. @BigPappy For once, I agree with your comment. Very good to see you be respectful to this situation.
hackers would love to see MS acting stupid about now best for MS keep quiet end of story.
Jacking up the price of Xbox Live once more, claiming "for security concerns and upgrades". In other word... Microsoft: "If you don't want your credit card to be stolen, you better price a higher price for Xbox Live." This is the perfect opportunity for Microsoft to jack up the price of Xbox Live without any blacklash from 360 gamers.
One month of free Live for all PS3 gamers.
Option 3. Because you know that as soon as you "call out" someone something happens that just makes you look equally bad if not worse.
I thought they already did. They are obviously not going to make a direct comment. They are not stupid. M$ is fine with Sony and the hackers fighting it out. M$ already have their own share of problems with people modifying 360. You can forget about M$ making any bad comments towards Sony and this situation.
They should give away free xbox 360's so PSNless gamers can game on.
im surprised they havnt... im sure though that they know how seriouos the problem is and that kinda problem can happen to ms too. it can happen to anyone so im sure they dont want egg on their face if they had to go through it.
Micosoft should respond by saying hey sony we got your back (LOL )
Microsoft really can't say anything. Especially when their head of Live security got HIS account hacked earlier this month.
While his personal account was hacked, Xbox LIVE wasn't compromised at all.
A personal account hack is no big deal? The article I read made it seem like a big deal... http://i.joystiq.com/2011/0...
The best option is business as usual. The majority of both user bases is common. It doesn't matter how secure XBL is, or how secure Steam is. Our information is already out there. Ultimately, they should all be collaborating on keeping gaming safe and secure for everyone.
I say help sony out because at the end of the day we are all gamers.
At the end of the day they are two competing buisnesses.
They should shut just keep quiet. Xbox Live can be hacked just like PSN and they don't want Live being hacked. Hackers probably favor the 360 because it's so easy to mod and play free games on it, while Sony's fighting to the bitter end to keep their system safe.
Secure their own system.
half off on all Xbox 360's for the month of May.
Option one has the potential of painting a target on their own backs. Likewise with two. Nevermind that they're already under fire over in-house support and failure overseas with Japan in particular.
Well for one they should just stay quiet about it and not make any direct comments towards it. This type of things happen.
Even though they are competitors, I don't think microsoft is happy about the breach. Hypothetically speaking, If Sony goes under and only MS is left. The gamers suffer because without competition you get crap. IE: Madden football. Competition is good. Keeps companies on their toes and breeds innovation which is great for the gamers.
You still have nintendo
WTF! What a waste of time to click through and read the best thing you think they can do is "nothing at all" which is exactly what they are doing!
