A guy comes to your house with a pistol and a crowbar. He is ready, prepared, and equipped to rob you. Just before he does it, you open the blinds and show him your shotgun. Rightly afraid of getting hyperblasted into oblivion, he throws the crowbar and pistol into the bushes. Then he walks up and knocks politely on your front door.

Refusing to let him in at this point is not pathetic. Your apparent willingness to open the door and welcome him into your home, on the other hand, is. What an easily-duped rube, known in the business as a mark.


Hahaha, I love this analogy.


Ditto.

That's a pretty bad analogy. It's more like they came to the door with the pistol and asked if we would let them rob us. Then we pointed a shotgun at them and said no. So they dump the gun and crowbar then asked if they could come in. At this point they are unarmed and we have a shotgun so why not let them in?

They shouldve just went with Xbox Fusion like they had trademarked a few months before the X1 was announced.
X-Fusion sounds cool...

You butchered that revision entirely. Your idea of 'why not let them in' is an analogy to you paying them $500 for a product. You aren't just letting them in, you are letting them sleep with your wife. If someone tried to push policies and guidelines I didn't agree with while trying to sell me their product I'd say get bent. You don't come knocking a second time with a revised contract asking me nicely. Which is exactly why I went the PS4 route for the first time.

As for 'Major' Nelson. He's a D-bag that has misused his position in the company. If you work for such a company, PR is #1. And he has shown time and time again that PR is his weakest trait.

In other news...more publicity for the xbone.

When the product you've developed is an irredeemable pile of crap that at one point tried to shove a sharp object right up the butts of your customers, you don't deserve respect no matter how many thousands of hours you put into developing it. It wouldn't have been called the Xbone if Microsoft hadn't tried so hard to bone all their customers with it.


This guy(or lady) wins the topic. Microsoft has only themselves to blame for the constant harassment and belittling that they're getting. Honestly, they set themselves up for that nickname for trying to bone us, and that terrible and unimaginative name.

And they seemed to forget that respect is a two way street; if you want it, you have to give it.
