I Ain't Mad about the Xbox One, Bro

Cheapy D writes: Sorry guys, I ain’t mad about the Xbox One and I ain’t mad at Microsoft. Do I think Microsoft has screwed up plenty? Sure, however, I ain't mad. As someone who was rejected from two of America’s top business schools, I feel like I am in the perfect position to explain how everything went down.

Good for you, bro. Good for you, but I ain't buying that.

Maybe you should change your name from allformats to someformats, as your name is misleading based on your comments across the forum.

This is one of the only Xbox one articles that isn’t speaking through Sony tinted glasses. Straight and to the point.

Can anyone who isn’t a fanboy agree with me, that this site is harbouring some seriously mentally deficient members, I was recently abused for expressing my opinion on a ridiculously one sided opinion piece about how wonderful Sony is and that they could never do wrong, but MS is the devil. People can’t blindly support one corporation and then point fingers at another; it doesn’t do much for ones perceived intellect or integrity.

Just to get one thing straight... I am buying a PS4 on launch, it is a gamer’s dream console and I want one NOW!
I am also getting an Xbox one on launch, because I am a tech head and I love new toys and gadgets. Who is anyone to tell me what I should and shouldn’t like, who has the right to take away my freedom of choice when it comes to wanting to be excited about MS's new offering. It's clearly not for everyone and those who are not keen on the direction MS are taking, be upset yes, but don’t piss on everyone else’s parade just because you’re nervous uncle Sam is going to be watching you masturbate via Kinect.

There are so many childish, one-sided comments on this site that makes for some disturbing reading. There is way too much hate, bullying and hostility towards anyone who (dare I say it...) likes the Xbox one. This is not how an open forum should operate. I’m very disappointed with the total lack of any type of tolerance on N4G, and as I’ve been told by a moron on this site before, I will not stop posting or looking at articles on this site as I am a 3D Generalist by profession and it’s my work and desire to know what is going on in the industry.

Does every article that has something nice or interesting to say about the Xbox have to be totally annihilated by the Sony masses, what have you guys got to worry about, we all know and agree how impressive the PS4 is, there is no doubt, so just chill... bro's. The few xbots on this site who are still bravely trying to defend the console unfortunately have not taken the high ground and are slinging sh*t back at the Sony camp which is not helping the situation, but unfortunately they don’t have the patience to think before they speak either.

Bottom line, stop the unnecessary hate and attacks on the few people who are expressing excitement or interest for the Xbox one, they have the same right as everyone else to be happy about the new offerings from MS.

Sonykong your comment is disgusting.
Don't make assumptions about me, and don't you dare try to associate me with child porn. I have a 9monfh old daughter and I find your comment completely inappropriate.

Keep things in perspective here, we're discussing the games industry, not your morbid twisted analogies. Maybe you need to get out more and expel your negative energy some other way rather than making personal attacks on people you have never met nor know.

What I can gather from your comment is that I could never have a meaningful conversation or debate with you. Why do you feel the need to stoop so low?

Your good a regurgitating big words but you have no concept of how to communicate in a decent manner. You make me sick, your attitude makes me sick, your an angry, uneducated moron for the things you said but I hope one day you will grow up and actually have some understanding about the ways of the world.

Xbox One and the word "Bro" in the same sentence,

I had to chuckle...

OC_MurphysLaw3085d ago

He makes some great points that will get lost on most of the readers of N4G.

LackTrue4K3085d ago

ya, but his mistake is that title.....

aviator1893085d ago

As much as ms screwed up their messaging along with their pr blunders, this entry is a great read and a fair, objective outlook on the matter.

DoubleJumpAUS3085d ago (Edited 3085d ago )

I remain bemused by the amount of importance both Sony and Microsoft assign to PR. Do these guys truly not understand that messaging is so completely irrelevant to gamers, if you are putting out a good product? Gamers are, perhaps more than any other consumer psychographic, people who are inherently inclined to try something for themselves instead of listening to someone else's bullshit, console fanboyism notwithstanding.

Unicron3085d ago

I disagree. Pre-release, look how many people are hooked on buzz terms like "power of the cloud?" That's all PR man.

The majority of consumers don't know what they want until they are told what they want sadly.

Hicken3085d ago

Sounds like you have it all wrong.

Gamers- like any other enthusiasts- ARE prone to trying things themselves. But that's exactly why PR matters. If what gamers experience doesn't wind up being the same as what the PR states, heads can and will roll.

Nobody likes being lied to.
