After seing Don Mattrick in an interview with GT they aren't getting any respect from me. Never seen a more arrogant front person of a company. Sure Sony got some arrogant people but they have calmed themselves this generation, but Don Mattrick takes the cake.

Microsoft deserve respect for creating the best gaming platform of all time ....

The PC!

Acquiescence3017d ago (Edited 3017d ago )


The gaming site equivalent of a broken record.

@el zorro

I'm no fanboy dude. It's just that I own a PS3, 360, PC AND Wii, so I'm in a perfect position to state which gaming platform I think is the best. Plus it's worth noting that I got a 360 two years before I got a PS3.

el zorro3017d ago

As if you PS3 fanboys aren't a major broken record. You guys repeat the same nonsense over and over and over and over....

OneSneakyMofo3017d ago

Conloles, Microsoft didn't invent the PC. It's so sad to see an ignorant fanboy defend his platform of choice and not even known the history behind it.

darkmurder3017d ago (Edited 3017d ago )

I never said they invented it, I said that they deserve respect for creating the greatest gaming platform of all time. As far as I can tell nowhere in that sentence did I say Microsoft invented the PC, they just perfected the PC into the ultimate machine it is for games today.

I tell you PS3 fanboys look for anything to attack you on seeing as they have no substance considering their inferior platform has no benefits over PC.

The best gaming platform is not the PC... it's Windows with DirectX :)

CernaML3017d ago

All fanboy shit aside, I think we can all agree as gamers Bobby Kotick takes the cake.

JohnApocalypse3017d ago

Couldn't agree with you more mate

DaBadGuy3017d ago

Oh god no doubt. People bitch about paying for Live but Kotick could make you pay on both consoles to play CoD online. And people will too. people will. I feel nervous about Bungie being in his hands now. I hope to god they are handled properly, but seeing Infinity Ward, anything can happen. Kotick is no better than the gum that I swallowed in 1998 that will stick in my bowels until the day I die.

Acquiescence3017d ago (Edited 3017d ago )

they got, as you say arrogant, and they suffered for it. But now they've straightened themselves out, become more humbled and have built up a catalogue of superb exclusives over the years and an excellent (plus free!) online service to make the PS3 the essential current-gen console (in my opinion of course). Right now I see Sony as the good guys, a reliable bunch.

Microsoft, especially at this point in time, do not deserve one iota of respect. They're starting to emulate Activision's business approach, which boils down to "HOW CAN WE SQUEEZE OUT MORE MONEEEEEEEEY FROM THIS PRODUCT!?!!?"

goldensfree3017d ago (Edited 3017d ago )

the next generation starts when we say it does... pure gold
still bought a ps3 in the end the games got me.
when i started playing warhawk i realized how much better psn was really for games. then resistance2 kz2 socom mag its a struggle keeping up. Missed a few games on the 360 tho aside from reach ill wait for them to hit the bin.

edit just fixed my comment not dissing on the 360 just not a lot of games i wanted since i got it at launch. Halo3 was fun for a while but between the lag cheats n everpresent grieffers (tho clan battles n playing with friend is epic fun) gears and 2 was broken from the start online(yeh 2 is a bit better now) cod was ok tho same as halo minus a bit of lag.

RedDead3017d ago (Edited 3017d ago )

I absolutely despised sony after the Ps3 was first release, I honestly believed the hype and does anyone remember the motostorm CG trailer to the actual game? They were worlds apart. It was more my fault because I thought those games were ingame and what the games would actually look like. They were showing the consoles hardware off with Cg video's . WtF sony?

It took up until 2008 till they got a game as good as Halo 3 or Gears 1. Atleast they have loads better than those 2(imo) now and they got their act together with Psn. MS might take another gen before they realise people see them as the "bad guys" of the gaming industry. Sony pretend they don't care about MS and barely mention the opposition. MS try and push it that they're "better" than Sony because they have sold more units.

I mean remember the last E3... all I saw was "we're sorry for having such a shitty conferance so here's some free 360's :), now clap so the world can see how generous we are. No don't stop, keep claping"

lynch3017d ago

man i payed around 750 euro to get set up with the ps3 at launch,(witch would be about $1000 usd)man was i "GUTTED"

Denethor_II3017d ago

I agree, but with that arrogance came the best console on the market. Without that arrogance maybe we would all still have DVD players as our entertainment hub.

Funny thing about Conloles that even if he has other accounts he still gets one bubble to reply and has to login and out just for that. Why can't people just take care of one account. Anyway that's professionalism if you depart with good words to your employer.

JLeVRT3017d ago

MS doesnt deserve any for increasing the price of live for no reason... AND THEY STILL DONT HAVE AN INTERNET BROSWER!

Can't wait to see Bungie's new franchise

Bobbykotickrulesz3017d ago (Edited 3017d ago )

We already know that they can make a shooter so I hope it's not a FPS.

Let's see what other kinds of games they can make.

ZombieAutopsy3017d ago

It'll most likely be a FPS, they signed with Activision after all and they don't seem to like much else unless it's licensed material. I'm hoping to get an RPG out of them though as I think they could do wonders with one.

KiRBY30003017d ago

i would be really surprised if Bungie's new IP is something else than an FPS.

nsnsmj3017d ago

Same here. I hope it's not a shooter. At least not an FPS. Third-person would be cool, but it is still a shooter. A Bungie Action RPG would make me very happy.

RedDead3017d ago

I would but every E3 the seem so arrogant. And I really dislike this guy
The one on the right. He just seems like he thinks he's the man and his console is the best shit on the street

LeeRoyJenkins3017d ago (Edited 3017d ago )

Yes, I agree Bungie. Microsoft does deserve their respect, as the number one console for true gamers this generation. Well played Bungie always show respect to the people that made you.

RedDragan3017d ago

Win 3.1 - Good
Win 95 - Sh1t
Win 98 - Sh1t
Win 2000 - Ultra Sh1t
Win ME - Ultra Ultra Sh1t
Win XP - Ok
Win Vista - Ultra Ultra Ultra Sh1t
Win 7 - Good
Xbox - 2x bigger than NES
Xbox 360 - Breaks

Why on earth should I give microsoft any sort of respect?

Oner3017d ago

I agree with you on most accounts but Windows 2000 was definitely not crappy. It was the first real stable OS MS ever came out with. But either way MS should not get any sort of respect knowing how they were founded, what they have continued to do over the years & to top it all off how they got/get away with the continual problems that 360's have.

lonix3017d ago

Microsoft just came along for the ride

KiRBY30003017d ago

3 teenagers agreed with LeeRoy so far.

Fishy Fingers3017d ago

Well there both owe each other a lot. Since they forged (pun) their relationship bungie have become one of the biggest developers in the world and their games allowed MS to become a major player in the console market. It could of been very different had the not crossed paths.

CBaoth3017d ago

Just too bad MS didn't treat the rest of their studios with the same amount of respect.
