Crytek: "We Are Not 100% Happy With Xbox One Sales".Microsoft in hot water again

Personally loved Ryse.

And maybe Crytek should learn not to bet on just one pony when there are two available.

Nothing wrong with covering your bet.

Emotion had nothing to do with me signing up here, but posting just to gloat and/or instigate trouble (eg. fishing for inappropriate responses) on the board of a system you dislike does. It looks like a borderline obsession, which in turn is based in strong emotions ... in this case for a piece of plastic.

Of course that 'dat' does give us a glimpse into your mental age. Only teenagers still try to act and sound 'cool' via a digital media such as this. It's ok, you'll eventually grow up, and one day you'll look back on this, smirk and shake your head at your own insecurity and immaturity.

I remember when I rabidly defended the C64 in the schoolyard, now I just smile at it.


Emotion everywhere in this post. Don't type up volumes on my account. Sorry I upset you.

What exactly indicates emotion about my post?
I pointed out why yours did, and why your general behaviour more than indicates you're emotionally invested in a piece of plastic. The least you could do is extends me the same courtesy, and retort in a ensical manner instead of this parroting, you're doing right now. Substance please.

Good point. I can't be the only one that remembers Activision threatening not to release COD on PS3 unless they dropped the system price to increase sales.

See this is why console sales matter. Developers will eventually lose interest and develope only for the console with more sales. So far PS4 and Wii U are well ahead of Xbox One and with Super Smash Bros coming out soon that alone will more than triple Wii U sales.


When you grow up and can buy your own consoles, you'll realize how silly fanboys like you are. I'll keep this topic saved for you so that in 10 years when you finally turn 18, you'll see how much you were embarrassing yourself.

So are you saying console sales don't matter to publishers/developers?

Yes, they matter. They won't develop for a console that is selling very poorly. Luckily the PS4, X1, and Wii U are all selling really well. What TC said is that developers will only develop for the console that sells more. That's not true at all. He's spreading doom and gloom just to troll.

Well activision threatened to stop making games for the PS3 when it had already sold over 20 million. Maybe it was an empty threat, but they still felt strongly enough to publicly state it.

So Crytek makes a game that not everyone likes and then blames Xbox One for bad sales. I bought the game and it was mediocre at best.. I think they need to make a better game if they want better sales. O yea, and the achievements where even broke and never got a patch or fixed..
