Two weeks ago we broke the news about Kotaku reader Greg and his amazing, online shopping dog. Today Microsoft told Kotaku that they've refunded the money Greg's dog spent on Xbox Live and have granted the dog his own Gamertag.
This is news?
It's not everyday that a household pet turns on an Xbox 360 and purchases gamer points only to have Microsoft refund the poor guy for his dogs funny accident.
Better than all that comparison stuff that floods the site. Ex: Bayonetta PS3 vs. Xbox 360.
The guy probably had the purchase confirmation screen up, as he fell asleep. All the dog had to do was press A.
the fact that MS refunded the points!!!
For real?? Wow!
This was very nice of Ms to do this . Kinda..." sympathetic " .
Take of the "sym" from sympathetic.
He'd only have to do that if he were describing you.
Wow Saking, so not only did you NOT stop trolling on the 29th, you're doing it hardcore in the gamer zone now? Nice... What the hell are you trying to accomplish? Normally people troll in the open zone for the LULZ, but since it's not really tolerated in this zone, are you actually turning into a real fanboy?
MS is pathetic. EDIT: Kaveti, good for them. If only they'd use that money to make quality products.
MS raked in 200,000 bucks during the time it took you to post your comment.
Sorry, Spike. They don't sell Kibbles N Bits on XBL. Some day, though. Some day. *looks off into distance and sheds a tear*
its obvious this is a PR fluff. kinda like [email protected]
Unfortunately, I agree. The real folders always do it on PC. Doing it on PS3 is a waste of power and resources. The same 303W a PS3 does with Cell, a PC running a basic SMP client with 150W can do just as well and in comparable time too.
This dog shall take over the world.
Dear Microsoft, 30M (or is it 15M knowing majority are repeat buyers?) people purchased 360 by impulse not knowing that this piece of device is garbage. Can you please do a refund? Your truly, Intelligent PS3 owner
Why would you care about a refund, if you have a ps3? And no, I'm not taking your comment seriously. Please, leave the trolling to someone who is actually funny. And no, I don't mean Saking.
bought a slim 4 days ago ( PSN: Fatalredalarm) and i was NOT impressed. The menu is a mess and i'd preffer my xbox over it anytime.
Yeah, the xbox OS, as far as the guide and menus, and ease of use, are far better than playstation's xmb. Sony makes everything look so boring...but then again, they aren't a software company like MS.
