If you are not in one of the green countries, do not bother with the Xbox One as it will not at work...at launch at least.

The interesting aspect about this comment is it probably sounded better in his head than after he stated it.

I'm sure he was thinking, "Yeah, I got an awesome counter to the online authentication question!" Patting himself on the back. Then he hears himself say the statement and realizes how horrible it is.

I wonder how developers like CD Project will feel about releasing their games on platforms that aren't supported in their own countries.

Everyday is worst day for MS.

It's FAR worse : to work, user have to log on Xbone with XBLA account. Since XBL doesn't work for Xbone in Poland /it will be available only to first 21 countries/ you won't be able even to run this damn thing in Poland, even if you buy one in Germany!
Of course, you still can make a fake account on German/UK adress but probably it won't work either - IP check .
That way or another - xboned for Poland /and for other countries outside of "Prominent 21"/.

This can only mean two things:

1. Phil Harrison still works for Sony
2. Kutaragi's spirit somehow took control over Mattrick

DAT hubris. Christ...




Damn lol


Considering Phil Harrison is notorious industry-wide for being an arrogant jerk I'm sure he's frankly part of problem now at MSFT.

Note that Sony quit the attitude and became awesome and humble pretty much after he left.

Waiting for Sony's next video on how to get your PS4 working in your country.

Plug it in!

Poland always was and will be a PLAYSTATION country, but now, with all this shit....
I just can't imagine that in 2014 can exist one person /in almost 40Million people country/ which will be willing to buy Xbone. Microsoft ,literally, is screwed in Poland :)

Hey Don! F0rneus! That's my Gamertag. See all those games? Traded them in, and got PS3 versions. Currently on Dark Souls. Thanks for pushing me towards the competition.

Love, F0rneus.

Does massive sales from the previous gen pretty much ensure that in the future gen, the company acts like over confident asses?

This is like a 110% swap from last gen when Sony was telling people to get two jobs.

Don how hard is it to say

"With the Xbox 1 we are focused on delivering the highest possible experience through cloud servers and online game play. At Microsoft we understand that some might not be able to join the Xbox 1 experience as of yet, but be sure, we are working hard to make it possible in the near future. In the mean time our 360 is still the predominant console on the market and will continue to entertain our fans until they are able to make the leap to next gen."

Same thing, much less of a fuck you.

Microsoft Exec - Marc Whitten: "Sony’s building a great program. I actually think it’s great to be a gamer right now."

Thanks Microsoft, I agree. I guess I have their blessing when I pre-order a Ps4
