Yeah because the top comment was about PS4 in the url.
With 350+ likes, censorship really...Sony allows it on theirs.

It's just humor anyways, people/companies take the smallest of things way too serious.

The url was a sign dude

Why o why2246d ago

Lol... credit to you... I didnt think you had it in on to jek porkins

maxgamehard2246d ago

They didn't want anyone finding out what it really is, a water cooler that can change the channel.

BattleAxe2246d ago

Gotta love censorship. I think the people over at Xbox and at Microsoft in general love the 1984 model.

pkb792246d ago

The 'Xbox double plus good' would have been a great name.

AngelicIceDiamond2246d ago (Edited 2246d ago )

Lol daaaaamn.

But look this is good news MS is listening!

@Mystic right so they are listening. If they weren't they'd continue to let people bash and wouldn't care what people think.

MS could of played it off and spin everything into a positive and being big headed. And let people talk as if they're not there and continue to smile as they continue to spin things.

That would piss me of allot if MS took that approach.

Obviously MS feelings are hurt and probably a little angry at YT comments. Come on YT of all places? Now tell me who takes YT seriously?

You know MS is upset now.

MysticStrummer2246d ago

Disabling comments means they're listening?


I'd say it means they don't want to hear what anyone has to say about it.

Thatlalala2246d ago

I think they get the idea though. I think they knew what had actually happened mid-conference. Everything since that moment ha been PR damage control bullshit.

dumahim2246d ago

Clearly they care so much what people think that they block the comments so they can listen to what people have to say.

Testfire2246d ago

They disable comments because the most popular comments are at the top. They don't want potential customers seeing those comments because most of them would probably be about how anti-consumer the Xbone is.

Imalwaysright2246d ago (Edited 2246d ago )

Listening? Nah. They're trying to prevent potential customers of finding out about their anti-consumer practices.

Edit Testfire beat me to it.

MariaHelFutura2246d ago (Edited 2246d ago )

Youtube gets 4 billion hits a day.

S2Killinit2246d ago

disabling comments means they dont want the news to get out. They want to keep people in the dark. Its fascist. Its censorship, lets call it what it is. I'm shocked that they would be so shameless.

kenshiro1002246d ago

How are they listening when they disabled comments? If anything, they're scared of the backlash.

Their arrogance will be their downfall.

solidjun52246d ago

Damage control to the damage control.

MS trying to hide the truth.

pompombrum2246d ago (Edited 2246d ago )

I hope Sony's PS division are focused enough to deliver on a good E3 presentation. After this week, if I was them, I'd be on a 14 day celebration spree partying like the console war has already been decided.

It just gets worse and worse for Microsoft and they only have themselves to blame. Even if their marketing department can save them, the PS4 is going to be picking up some serious momentum, three of my closest friends who are all Xbox only owners, have already said that PS4 is their console next gen and judging by the comments on here, I'd say many other 360 owners feel the same way. On the flip side, I doubt hardly any ps3 owners feel the need to switch to the Xbox One.

Godmars2902246d ago

More like putting your fingers in your ears and going "la-la-la-la-NOT-LISTENIN G!"

And they need to listen.

Syntax-Error2246d ago

I stated that 2 days ago...DAMAGE CONTROL!! Notice every gaming site has someone from MS trying to calm the consumers down as if we made this shit up. Like we came up with this foolishness all by ourselves. Those MORONS have no clue that they were the ones that shot themselves in the ass. Their unveiling practically made them look like they don't get it. FIRE WHOMEVER THOUGHT THIS WAS A GOOD IDEA

monkey nuts2246d ago

Ms know full we'll what they're doing. Non gaming folk (who they want to buy xbone) will see these damage control articles on main stream sites like the huffpo and think ' oh it's just those geeky gamers freaking out over nothing again, fools, look at the potential of the xbox1. Cloud computing is the future. I'm sold'.

And that's what ms does. They sell us the product they want us to have and not the product we want. The shame of it ........

Shadonic2246d ago

117 likes,like master chief. Ill miss you always Halo Q.Q

BX812246d ago

I was working during the reveal, but skimmed through the recorded version. I was let down. Did MS actually come out and say they were saving people's faces on a cloud server?

MariaHelFutura2246d ago

No. In an interview after. When you create a profile and Kinect scans your face, you can sign in to you profile by just standing in front of the Kinect. This is the thing, because of the 'always on' cloud system you can step in front of another Xbone Kinect camera and it will sign you in by recognition, it's not magic MS is storing your identity at their HQ. Microsoft just increase there servers to 300,000 (I believe it was 10,000-20,000 before). That mixed w/ the fact the console, required Kinect to be connect or it won't work. Just look at the whole situation, you do the math.

BX812246d ago

Thanks, I didn't hear that. If connect is required for the Xbox to work, I'm not even gonna bother. I don't see how MS thinks this is a good idea.

Retroman2246d ago (Edited 2246d ago )

MS disable youtube comments ..... gee i wonder why???

DA_PRGamer2246d ago

its too late for damage control, they just now trying to convince people that they did everything right!! so its more like WRECKAGE CONTROL!!! MS its done!!

indysurfn2246d ago (Edited 2246d ago )

I knew it! They are now trying to control our expression! This is the next step, they will try to retrack every video of their press conference! So that they can say that Phil Harrison the VP did not say those things about there being a used game fee. A periodic check of internet connection to their servers. Reactivating a used game. A fee for a used game(they did not say if the seller or buyer paid it). Also they want to hide the fact that if you use it with or as your cable box it will check the internet to continue playing tv! That way if internet goes out so does your tv!

What if xbox servers are attacked for 23 days like Sony's was you cant play games OR watch TV for 23 days straight!

So to combat this, everyone can download the press conference to your pc! Then later we can upload them to our favorite sites. One free way to download it is with a software called ILIVED. I love it it is free.

1nsaint2246d ago

I actually dont wanna defend MS since i feel like they stabbed me in the back with the gay ass reveal, but none of the videos on the xbox channel have a comment section.

If i remember right, they've always disabled the comment section.

Pretty hilarious it says ps4 in the url though xD

eliasg2246d ago

no damage control, sony fanboy control to be honest. Well done Microsoft!!!

Simon_Brezhnev2246d ago

I'm just glad all the fanboys are uniting for once. Hopefully if we can stop this we can stop the DLC on disc milking.

stage882246d ago

Spyware in your own house is fu--ing creepy.

kenshiro1002246d ago

Oh, that backlash is hurting them alright. It serves them right for thinking gamers are stupid in the first place.

FOXDIE2246d ago

This just goes to show what a joke MS has become in the eye of gamers. Fanboy or not, no real gamer liked the press conference and no gamer liked the aftermath with used games etc!

malokevi2246d ago (Edited 2246d ago )

They're probably sick of listening to 14 year olds complain about how they can't borrow games.

boooooo hooooooo.

TAURUS-5552246d ago

microsoft shut quit the console biz, they just dont know anything about gamers.

xboxone is dead.
