Best of luck to him! He got my respect by streaming God Of War and ignoring the backslash from the Xbox fan base.

What a dumb reason to be angry.

Oh no, a Microsoft/Xbox employee streamed a PlayStation game. I'm so angry now because... 🙄

I certainly dont remember that. Please elaborate.

UnholyLight8d ago

Yeah no doubt, I don't really remember that but I remember Phil Spencer as well talking about Playstation games and playing something and people giving him a hard time. I think it's not representative of EITHER fanbase tbh. It seems more like the internet trolls coming out to just make everyone look bad and turn everything into an issue when it really isn't. It's naive to assume these guys don't check out their competition. I wouldn't be upset at Sony for doing the same...streaming an Xbox game or whatever. Who cares...anything to fuel the fanboy war I guess?

Remember when Phil Spencer congratulated Sony and Santa Monica for God of War's rave reviews? Xbox fans were mad, to put it mildly.

I thought this was good news. time to see some changes in different directions.

it is good news. both have a happy ending. now MS should consider making a few remakes.

Agreed. Time to bring some new blood to Xbox and get better UI designers.

He might have been poached by Stadia...

what a dumbass comment when Xbox has been praising every damn great Playstation game!

KillBill7d ago

Been following Mike for some time now and your recollection of backlash for his gaming variety is not really representative of what really went down. A very few outcries ever for him supporting all games. Far more respect for him being a true gamer was ever seen from his fanbase and the xbox gaming community.

Just as PlayStation has a few warped individuals Xbox had similar instances but far from any kind of real backlash as you suggest.
