Non-gaming reporter simplifies Xbox One debacle on Fox News and receives a hilariously baffled response
OMG.....NOOOOO.....I have a headache now. God Damn Fox News! I might be spit-balling here, but what do you think is the combined average IQ at Fox News? 1.5 perhaps??
lol. Well it certainly isn't 360 nor a 180. Maybe it is ONE.
I just realized that 180 is half of 360
HAHAHA what horrible messaging! This is sure to defuse the issue, right? Right....? It is news reports like this that are going to affect the One-Eighty for months after it launches. "Um, the camera. It spies on you." "Er, um. Some people can't play their new Xbox One because they can't download the Day 1 patch" "What's a patch?" "I'm sorry. I'm not a gamer"
I'd be willing to bet the highest IQ in terms of somebody on a Mainstream media show is about 95.. 95 being the peak intelligence among these people. 95 isn't that smart....not retarded.....but not intelligent either.
100 is average. Fox news anchors average around 85. Watching Fox News for 5 minutes or more reduces your IQ by 1 per additional minute.
Lets be honest. Some of these things appear "common sense" to a common group. But a lot of people out there know absolutely nothing about video games and the simple terminology associated with them. Heck, I can talk to my friends about 8-core, 8GB GDDR5 RAM, DRM, used games, etc and most of them would know a thing or two about it. But if I were to ask non-gamers, typically adults/parents, they might not know anything especially if they have no prior knowledge to computers whatsoever. My sister wouldn't know either. Can we blame them for not knowing?
Sounds about right to me. A bunch of teenage boys or grown men who live in their mom & dads basement flood the internet and sites like this and cried about the DRM & always online and Microsoft changed their policies. You don't have to be a gamer to understand what happened! LOL...
“Hrm. Alright wait. OK. Huh? Alright. No. Yeah? Yeah. Ok.” lol
that was the most cringe worthy news report on video games i have ever come across
Am I supposed to feel disgusted and insulted by the video? Because I kinda do.
About right for FOX...
The saddest part is that she described gamers as teenage boys. *sigh*
Lets be fair to her, 99% of the fanbois on this site are no doubt: A: In their teens B: Boys And its these people who whine the most/loudest.
I think you are way off there... There are a lot of teen males here and in the gaming industry in general? Sure. Maybe the biggest demograph... But definetelly not 99%, if anything this could had been the case around SNES and PS1 generations, but since that gaming population had grow older and more diversified, so I don't think teenage boys account for anywhere near 50%, they are just bigger than other groups, but more in the like of 30~40% (completelly guessing and making up statiscs BTW, just trying to put it in perspective).
I know more female fanboys that male fanboys. Though, that's in real life, and in college. You're experience may vary.
LOL...Exactly! Us grown men who make money, have our own house & cars don't scream and rant on the internet. So while we might not be loud...we speak with our money! MS would have been just fine if they had stayed the course. Now all I can hope for is they give us Grown Ups who are ready for the digital age, an option. I don't trade games in, I have no issue with staying connected, and I respect Developers who want to get paid. I don't expect anything for free and I don't want things to remain the same forever. Those are childish and immature mentalities...
Can we stop pretending FOX is the only news source who knows nothing about gaming? I'm a moderate, but even I can see that FOX is very conservative, while the rest are very liberal. They are all morons. So, don't just put the blame on FOX, here. It's the whole news media industry. That being said, this was horrible. It was just difficult to watch.
Well Fox news are the ones that sensationalize most video game stories. Remember the Mass Effect sex scene? They were the only ones talking about it.
It only seems that way because FOX News is reported on N4G. Check this out though. http://kotaku.com/5978149/t...
So that means I'm not a gamer. Guess I have to pick up a new hobby.
That wasn't Fox News. That was a local Fox affiliate and Fox Business, neither of which are related to Fox News, other than being owned by the same company.
So.... their only relation is having the same daddy? Yeah.... not related at all. /s Ot: Oh those poor fools being paid to look like idiots. Well they say when you're good at something, never do it for free.
I wouldn't blame MSNBC for something a local NBC affiliate did in their news either. Local affiliate news has nothing to do with the cable news brands. There are a lot of people who hate Fox News because they are right wing media. The people from this broadcast were not part of that. The local affiliates in that show are actually left of center. And I am sure people will check disagree, but that doesn't make what I am saying wrong.
Any time a news channel has any game related content, it always ends in disaster. They just don't get it.
