I love it. It's like as ANTI PR as you can go. I imagine hes going to have some meetings regarding this in the morning. Keep egging him on, perhaps he will confirm no backwards compatibility and no used games.
"bombing at PS3 levels" means "selling as good or better than anything but the PS2 and Wii". I don't think PS3-level sales will do all that much to kill it, it would need to be a from-Genesis-to-Saturn fall.
Which I don't think it will be. I think if this is true MS has decided they've found a Gamecube-to-N64 level niche of extreme profit. And they're probably right, given the 20M+ Live Gold customers.
I'm so annoyed by morons like this tool always thinking in such a selfish manner. Not everybody has a reliable connection or even a connection at all. He just comes off as "it aint my issue... my connection is solid, fuck off if you cant live @ my level"
it's so damn douchey. we're talking about a the successor to a system that has sold 75 million units... to think that all of them have solid connections to support an always online system is straight up idiotic.
if this is true, MS just followed the trend set forward by Nintendo and Sony with their 3rd big home console release... meaning... they fucked up. (N64 cartridges, PS3 pricing).
I don't personally care too much about always online, but this guy comes across as a total asshole and I would not be surprised if this little tweet session harms his career. Trolling potential customers - genius!
I don't get why this dude thought his really shitty analogies and arguments would win people over, he basically doused Microsoft with gasoline and thought igniting the gasoline would be the best way to make the gasoline smell go away.
