It is as if America has woken up and realized that Microsoft practices deceipt. I fought so hard for years to try to wake up gamers to return to Playstation--who provided the best gaming during the PS1 and PS2 generations--but my methods did not work. It took Microsoft themselves to show people how disloyal a company they are.They announced the DRM and constant internet connection requirement for Xbox one at E3 two years ago. That was just the beginning.
They released a 100 dollar more expensive console than Sony with a forced Kinect pack-in that most gamers didn't want. They said that XB1 was meant to be a multi media machine first and gaming second. Two more mistakes. They focused on TV and Xbox TV programming. MS stated that there would never be an XB1 without Kinect and that it was intregal to the future of XB1. It didn't help that Don Mattrix said that those that don't like DRM can still play Xbox without it. The machine known as Xbox 360. What an insult!
More recently, they have went back on most of what they said. They unbundled Kinect, dropped the price, and now say games first. They lied and lied. Those that bought the $500 XB1 were screwed over, thinking that Kinect would be a continued future focus that would be constantly supported and improved upon. To add insult to injury, they offered no money or free games to compensate those early and faithful MS buyers of XB1 in the beginning.
More recently there was a deceptive MS commercial for Xbox one that feartured a Breaking Bad actor to promote the Xbox one's Kinect features, yet says at the end of the commercial that Xbox one starts at $399. The commercial made it seem like the new Kinectless Xbox would have the Kinect features for $399!
They went back on the DRM, constant internet requirement, because of negative customer feedback, but they also went back on their word on other things as well. They have exposed the lying company they are. I tried to tell everyone for years, but nobody would believe me! I knew when they abandoned the original Xbox too quickly and put out the very defective RROD 360's, that they were not to be trusted. Now everyone can see for themselves. My fight is over and Playstation has taken back America with NPD victories for 7 months straight.
Welcome back Playstation! The PS4 is the number one home console in the whole world right now. It looks like it will stay that way for this whole generation. MS has done about everything to take back America this year, but have failed. Even Wii U has been outselling XB1 worldwide for the last month. It seems like some sanity has returned to this nation. Thank you America for putting Playstation and Sony back at #1 again.
MY BATTLE WITH MS IS OVER!
