Ummmm idk about america but here in canada when you bought xb1 at launch you got fifa14 for free. Seems like a fair deal to me.


where did you get that deal?  I got nothing but a day one sticker.


I didnt buy one but it was there in stores. And on ads it said you got a fifa 14 free download, im 100% positive.

If everyone would be mad just because something is cheaper 4 months after they bought the product there would be everyone mad on this planet. There is always some kind of price cut or addition after a while. Yes, it happened fast with Xbox but people really expect that Microsoft shouldn't do anything just because they had to pay 10 percent more for their console + forza? It's a freaking 550 to 500 price reduction and not from 550 to 250

When is a company allowed to reduce the price of their product or to give something extra with it?

Find PSP Goals sales and then see if its even close to 20 million

PSP Go is also just a new model of the psp, the equivalent of 360 Arcade edition.

Tolerating BS since 2005.

PSP sales aren't even a quarter of that.

Sony killed it when people bought it expecting longer shelf life.

1.5 years after it came out it got discontinued so Sony could focus on Vita. For the gamers.

OG Xbox sold around 20 mil and it was squirting money (billion) out of MS's butt. It went on for 5 years, not 1.5.

Since when did MS notice a Billion dollar loss, were they donating the Live Revenue to charity?

The PSP Go was a digital only model of the PSP, it wasn't a standalone console.

You keep sitting here typing excuses while MS doesn't improve cause no one is telling them they are wrong. Why wouldn't they wait till preorders dropped to start removing restrictions when the E3 had negative reactions to the console and 2014 was filled with negative Xbox PR. Again, Xbox has not even come close to the PS2, and yet they have the gall to act like 2005 Sony at the start, but now they are backtracking and being praised despite the fact that PS and Nintendo have had straight fair policies from the onset.

What is the worse thing that Sony did with the PS3? If you can't see how the XB1 has attempted to do much worse in the past 4 months than you need to take of those green tinted glasses.

These awsomenes ain't gonna come out.

How do you know Sony had straight policies from the onset? How do you know it wasn't removed at the last minute before E3?

In the past 4 months? What did MS/Xbox do?

Why would they wait till pre-orders drop to remove DRM?

Although MS was arrogant they never advised people to get a second job to afford their console.

So you think by bitching on the internet you get a company to change their MO? Oh man.



Do you have fun playing a console different than mine?

DON'T!!!

IRRELEVANT. SONY SAW THE BACKLASH AND DIDN'T DO IT. MS SAW THE BACKLASH AND SAID #DEALWITHIT.

EXCEPT THATS EXACTLY WHAT HAPPENED.

Although MS was arrogant they never advised people to get a second job to afford their console.

THEY ADVISED PEOPLE TO GET 360'S IF THEY COULDN'T GET TO THE INTERNET, AND THEY SOLD ABOUT 70 MIL LESS THAN PS2, WHY AGAIN ARE THEY ARROGANT? BECAUSE THEY CAN GET AWAY WITH IT.

So you think by bitching on the internet you get a company to change their MO? Oh man.

No, I'm just pointing out how Xbox Fans have been tolerating the untolerable since 2005. I fully expect this to continue as it has been, the trends will play out. And Xbox Fans will defend the X2ndbox lack of games and 2000$ price point.

When talking about Sony's d00m, people like to bring up how MS has a basically 0 chance of going bankrupt, and yet PS is the cheaper and more powerful console, has been giving away games longer than xbox, lets you actually use netflix for free, I could go on.

Especially, the irony in an all in one console that has less media functions that the ps4 without the subsciption.

(MS advised people to do it? Did Major Nelson and Phils say that? Mattrick had a different idea of Xbox that's why he had to go. MS was arrogant because everything was happening in 360; best online infrastructure, most gamers that don't watch netflix prefered it, thus more software sales and game tie ratio, even though online service is based on a monthly fee it has a bigger community and etc...)

So you think by bitching on the internet you get a company to change their MO? Oh man.

Mattrick worked for Xbox, just because they made him a scapegoat, doesn't change the fact that he was working for them. Mattrick(E3) was a part of Xbox. Why can't Microsoft Control their PR while Sony can? Where is all that extra money going? Maybe if MS was going bankrupt we could see them actually try and care. 

The irony is you confused the X2ndbox, which was a pun on the XB1's name on how the Xbox 1's successor would be called, and you confused it with the Xbox 360 thus mentioning XBLA.

I wonder how long it will take before, Xbox Fans become the equivalent of Nintendo Fans today.

It hilarious how the company best suited to improve gaming, gets the most excuses. The OG Xbox made its successors look miles behind in innovation.

Mattrick was a part of Xbox but under his leadership Xbox never seemed fresh like it is under Phil Spencer.

In MS, members are free to speak. MS doesn't need to invest in X1 as the Xbox division been profitable for a while now.It invests from what it earns.

I didn't confuse X2 with anything, your common assumption as a group is that X360 had a lack of games from 2011 till now and it would be the same on future boxes. And then I shot down your analogy with XBLA.

Nintendo fans know what they want and they are a great community. They don't constantly act entitled by creating multiple petitions, they don't look at others' consoles to compare them down to a chip  of paint, they are satisfied when Nintendo provide enough 1st party content and don't have to look at what neighbors have. If that's Nintendo fans you're talking about, I see no problem on X community becoming like that.

X consoles are more than graphic cards update, you'll never wrap your head around that.

Probably it's a good platformer and I'm being a fool here trying to make fun of it.
