Surfing these boards, Question for fangenders

#1Lord_IndorilPosted 11/6/2013 3:19:39 AM
I used Fangenders to be respectable. Or something.

I have noticed something odd from reading a lot of the posts here.

Why exactly do all of you Xbox 1 (not to be confused with the actual Xbox 1 that came out years and years ago, right?) support, back, love, act like chimps and fling feces whenever someone insults the Xbone, and generally close your minds to facts?

I see people post information in factual form of say, hey, this system is 100 dollars more, is physically inferior, has a lower native resolution that is actually comparable to the previous generation of gaming, and backed by a company that cares so little about it's gamers, that they actually removed some of the -good- features when the -bad- features were met with dislike by the gaming community as a whole, blaming it on us, the gamers, for not supporting the features we don't enjoy that Microsoft wanted to force on us, and on top of it all, harboring the knowledge that because the majority of your fellow humans have already decided to embargo the xbone, which means the competitor, the PS4, will actually have a larger, richer competitive and online gaming community because of these things.

So really, what, what exactly is the reason that you, as a M$ fanboy or girl, has decided to forsake all sane and relevant information provided in favor of giving money to a company that neither cares about you, or your actual entertainment.


Is it because they bought out Skype, filled it with crappy adverts, constantly try to get you to pay for what had previously been a premium free program, lowered its overall quality, then put it on a console with a forced subpar webcam and microphone they call the 'kinnect'? (I would personally just use a PC for Skype, as it's much easier to do anyways)

Is it because they got an exclusive deal with NFL? I mean, I know as a 23 year old life long gamer, I always so deeply wished I could drop my gaming and fantasy world desires in favor of the ever so amazing sports, and be like all the jocks that just years ago would beat up and pick on people like me for even liking video games. (So glad we're all past that.)

Is it because you feel some sort of loyalty to a company that has shown you none?

I know this post is heavily laced with sarcasm, but truthfully I'm baffled as to why anybody would even consider supporting this console for any reason, especially when there are literally pages of reasons not too. I just need the opinions of fanboys to wrap my head around it.

Because I bought an HD Webcam/Microphone combo for $120 about 5 years ago with comparable quality in all facets. Cam gets 1080p HD full quality, microphone sounds crisp and clear. The fact that it's almost 6 years old now tells me that I would never support paying an extra $100 for something that causes my console a 50% performance hit. I can use this cam on my PS3/Xbox for both a microphone and webcam, it works great to this day.


The Kinect would have to be godlike for it to be worth the price and performance hit imo.

Price and performance hit? I wasn't aware such information was publicly available to make such a determination... so how many flops did we lose to Kinect, good sir? And how much of the asking price is going toward it?

You apparently aren't aware that it comes out in just a couple weeks and has been in the hands of developers and the like for some time then.

Also, I kind of just assume the only reason Microsoft would charge an extra 100 dollars (And Euros, which is even more to the poor europeans) then the PS4, which is a physically stronger system, is because of the defunct piece of machine that the majority of humans dont even want.
