Amazing Interview: Phil Harrison vs GameCentral

#1embrandedonePosted 8/28/2013 11:41:14 AM

Not since Angry Joe did an interview call MS on their BS. And judging from the comment section it seems other people pick up on the 'drone mode' most Xbot Execs seem to tap into.

GC: But I don’t understand where those initial policies came from. I don’t understand how you personally, who have so much experience in the games industry, could have thought they’d be accepted.I don’t understand how your market research could have failed so catastrophically, when five minutes with a tape recorder at any game shop would’ve avoided all that trouble.

Gotta hand it to the Brits, they don't pull their punches! XD

Just wait, it will go from "yeah, we messed up but we changed and we are giving options!" to "Wait, that never happened, we never did that!"

It will take time but they will work day and night to erase this from history.
That's just, like...your opinion, man.

"All of the magical experiences that you get, both as a games-player and also the way you navigate the system are made even more amazing because of Kinect."

You tell them PHIL!!
That's just, like...your opinion, man.

I don't know if I would call it amazing...

What a worthless interview. He didn't answer a single one of their questions. He should go into politics.

Gettin tired of seeing words like 'amazing', 'magical' and 'flawless'.

It was kind of awkward how he dismisses their messaging debacles and 180s as having nothing to do with the games, then when called on his **** for Kinect having absolutely no decent content for it yet, he starts trying to shift the conversation away from games completely. Pretty sure that Albert Penello is the closest they have to some one at the company who can speak to people without the resentment of having to communicate with the base being palpable.

That's the saddest and funniest interview I've read.

Yeah, I was expecting some answers as well. After rephrasing the same questions couple times the interviewer was clearly tired of not hearing an answer.

Magic - 6 times
Amazing - 5
Flawless - 0
History - 4

I'm surprised he wasn't asked about creating One with ads in mind, where they would be an integral experience, One of a kind.

It reminds me of that Gamespot interview with Phillip Moore waaaay back when he was a VP for Microsoft/Xbox. That was another awkward one.
