Major nelson and some xbox devs are constantly on other forums like the xbox one sub-reddit and interacting with the fans, as well as answering a lot of their questions.

They have also hosted a bunch of AMA's (ask me anything q&a segments) , whereas Sony has not.

Yoshida answers many questions on twitter, and I applaud him for that, but not to the extent of what major nelson and the rest of the xbox team does.

Why doesn't Sony have someone like this / why don't they interact and answer more of our questions?

Sony drones, not fans are the worst fanboys in gaming.

Yeah, because MS has had so much luck with it's execs opening their mouths.

Sony doesn't need a clown with a stupid major alias.

All of you, want to be loved... needed by someone, so we look to others... By ourselves, we are lonely, so we try to draw together to live

Here we go. Can't you guys just answer a simple question without the console worshiping getting in the way? How is interacting and answering the fans' questions on various forums a bad thing?

Console worshiping? The fact is that "Major" Nelson and his peers have not done all that much to put the X1 in a good light. That's the reason Don left, they needed a scapegoat. IMO, Nelson should have gone with him.

Most asian companies are still very corporate / very closed. Not saying they don't use social media at all - but they use it far more for a traditional sense of PR windows / Tech support.

They don't use it the same way Europe/West use social media

Because usually he speaks nonsense and is unreliable.
