God, the happy-go-lucky, circle jerk, fake PR bullshit is so... ugh. I miss the 16-bit wars and the PS1 vs N64 days.

Back then they where brutal as f***... as a kid I remember looking at those slides/marketing/ads ect and just laughing.
Today Im not sure you could do the same, there would be a backlash probably.

You forgot that sometimes, some people can be brutal nowadays too ;) But it was short and one-sided...

The reason that "dig" works at all, is context (because of how badly MS handled their used games/always online/licenses locked on install ect).
But its not really mean? towards MS.
its saying this is how its done on our system.

Back in the day you could name the guy you where throwing shade at, and taunt them, mock them ect.
This video was a very minor thing, even if the impact was probably huge.

I think if it was up to Phil and Phil only, the XB1 would have a much healthier 1st party support, but MS´s strategy for the system is clearly not focused on that.

Thank you. Alot of people surfing the web just assume that Xbox is just as important to MS as PS is to Sony. Sony needs PS to succeed where as MS doesnt need Xbox. They are finding a healthy medium where they can profit efficiently without investing too much $$$.

Its going to look bad for the fanboys that want to hate and call them out for BS and spinning but for MS, its an easy and safe investment where there comfortable.

Personally i dont see Xbox having a big budget like Nintendo and Sony do. They seem to be just riding the wave as much as they can and to profit out of the industry without spending big.

There more worried about Apple than Sony.

I must say - you have a thing about trying to turn everything into an us versus them. Really. Stop doing that.

Looking for 'fanboy' responses is you asking for trouble. No valid points in that.

It was an example not an attack on anyone.

Come on, this video and the entire part of the PS4 show with "You can keep your games, you don't have to be connected online to play...", along with all the looks, small remarks like "and that's a good thing" and pauses to let everyone laugh and applause...

 

It's entirely a huge joke about MS, and nobody missed that. It's absolutely not an unrelated video funny only because of context, it was made because of the context. It was the "Let's destroy MS" show. They didn't have to name them, but they taunted and mock MS at a point unseen for a long time.

Eh, I don't buy it, but nice for optics I guess.
