As Xbox Live continues being a disaster, providing headaches for gamers everywhere, tension is running high. A trip to the Xbox.com forums shows gamers with pitchforks and torches, storming the company's virtual castle and demanding satisfaction for their stressful gaming experiences. As people becme increasingly frustrated with Microsoft's XBL problems and shoddy hardware, all that Microsoft can do is shrug its shoulders and say "we know, we're great."
Why should it do more than that, though? It's not like these angry customers are cancelling their subscriptions in droves and going over to Sony. The Xbox 360 currently has very little to fear in terms of customer retaliation because it's still the best thing on the menu, despite leaving a bitter taste.
What if, however, something more palatable finally arrived? What if Sony cooked us a meal so delicious, it took away the aftertaste of yet another Red Ring of Death mixed in with another session of Halo 3 that saw you get booted halfway through? What if we stopped all these food metaphors? Destructoid explains how we could one day see an "Xbox Exodus," a time when people finally have an opportunity to go elsewhere and a day when a true rival emerges.
