Locked: I want the XBOX ONE to Fail and Die.....Am I wrong to feel this way?

Forums - Gaming Discussion - I want the XBOX ONE to Fail and Die.....Am I wrong to feel this way?

I wrote a little message to someone in the gaming media and community.

I'll leave the name out, but this is what I wrote:

 

 

"I was listening to your Show, and you brought up your disdain for people wanting a console (XBOX ONE) to fail.

In general, I very much agree.....

But not this time, and I want you to hear me out and understand why.

As plain as I can put it, XBOX One is ANTI CONSUMER, and while it could be debated otherwise, it's also ANTI GAMER.


I want to be even more plain than that: I HATE the XBOX One. I hate it with passion, as it's a travesty to consumers, and I want it to die. I want it to die with awesome-spectacularity. I want the XBOX One to die the death of the Ancient Romans...Slow and excruciatingly painful.

But in my benevolent mercy.....I only want the XBOX One to die ONCE. Just 1 time.....and ONLY 1 time.

You see, sir, I want the XBONE to be made an example of, to be a reminder to any and everyone who would try these anti consumer policies again in the future. I want to drive home the fear that if these Draconian, anti consumer measures are tried again, the same fate will befall said console.

So yes...please forgive me, but yes.....I want the XBOX One to fail, but not because I'm anti Microsoft or anti console.


I want the XBONE to fail because I'm pro-consumer, and I love gaming. But those 2 aspects aren't and SHOULDN'T be mutually exclusive.


The future of gaming is at stake.


--Maybe overly dramatic....but my take"

What do you guys think about my sentiment?  Too strong....Or just right?

I have owned and very much enjoyed both XBoxes. But I do feel that MS has done almost nothing positive for gamers and the industry. I wouldn't mind seeing MS take it financially on the One. I would actually also like to see Sony regret switching to paid online multiplayer. I don't think they will, because X1 is taking most of the heat, but when companies try to find new ways to gouge money out of us, we, the consumer, should reject it.



I agree.



You'd be considered unreasonable or a straight up fanboy for thinking this of a console before but I honestly feel the same way too, and in my head it's completely justified.



They're pretty much digging their own grave. I want them to fail too, so no one will try to do something as vile ever again.

Hahaha! Yeah, I feel what you said fits right in with the common sentiment.



I'd like to think that any self respecting human being should want the Xbox One to be the biggest market failure in gaming history.



Pixel Art can be fun.

Must say I agree with you

What do you expect them to do? Honestly complaining about companies trying to find new ways to get more money from you is like complaining about why the sky is blue.

Their business thats why the exist to make money.



I want their online check servers to go down for a week. Then see how they react to it. I don't mind the mandatory installs or online registration. I just think the online check is pushing it.
