also they have dominated the market for a number of years, when the PS3 came out it didn't do them any real harm....they came out with the Kinect to attempt to beat the Wii down (can't stand the Wii myself) but Sony has come out with the PS4 and now its a threat to the X-1.

Maybe the PR pick needed to think before he opened his mouth, people will buy thier console because thats how it works, but his flippant remark is not gonna do anything good for them, i mean does Bill Gates know that this is called PR Disaster

Gates is retired from the company, spends his whole time giving to charities now.

My brother showed me a post he made on The Escapist forums about this. Sounds about right.

From Dreadman75 here

Let me see if I've got this straight: He's basically saying that, if you don't have a stable internet connection, "We at Microsoft still want your money, we just don't want your poor-ass, non-internet having hands all over our new toy. Here take our last generation model as a consolation prize and kindly fuck off."

How's that, am I paraphrasing that correctly?

Go to hell Microsoft.

This isnt actually the case, though its the popular myth, the wii dominatedthe console market for the seventh generation, x box 360 had good consistant sales(which in part was due to many of them breaking after warranty with the old red ring of doom) , the ps3 sales got better as time went on and it reduced in price and because it played blurays which meant it took the second spot from the xbox.

I've been an xbox fan since day one, but all that shit about needing to check in every day? Fuck that. I might not turn it on for weeks at a time if I'm busy with work, family, or getting in some brush time. Not being able to trade in or even swap games with your buddies is a huge negative. I have a couple of mates in work who play as well, and we tend to decide amongst ourselves who buys what and then swap the games around. PS4 it is.
