Interview ends sort of abruptly...

Oh man is that guy who sent that email to the Antechamber dev going to have his mind blown if he continues to play the game.

Patrick I just wanted to thank you for not taking the lazy option and condemning the entire internet for the way an obvious minority have behaved. There have been others who have taken this opportunity to vent and lash out at "the internet" as if that is descriptive of some sort of unified group of people.

I am honestly tearing up over here. The man was a titan in every sense of the word, and his loss will be felt profoundly.

For better or worse all those communities that many are so quick to bemoan as stupid and pointless (i.e. reddit, 4chan, neogaf) played a huge part in keeping the pressure on long enough that it trickled up to the MSM. Hopefully Microsoft walks away from this humbled, but I doubt it.

You sure the communities had that much of an impact? I was under the impression that the XONE being decimated in the preorders by the PS4 had far larger impacts than a large number of dudes complaining on the Internet. In other words, people actually doing something to put their money where their mouths are.

I would argue one naturally followed the other. Who preorders game consoles a couple weeks after their announcement and a week after E3? Mostly the hardcore that frequent those sorts of websites. I'm not even saying this was a positive thing, I personally would have preferred Microsoft to stick to their guns and explain what sort of benefits this system would offer the consumer but they were so certain that Sony was going to do basically the same thing they were completely unprepared to have their policies put under the microscope. Almost unbelievably, this may hurt them worse than the RROD.

They've already lost the hardcore, and while I'm sure this will ease the anti-MS sentiment they did this because it was going to affect their sales with the mainstream. It is not hyperbole to say that this whole situation will be studied in text books of the future; used as an example to demonstrate how social media has really changed the landscape of public relations.

For better or worse all those communities that many are so quick to bemoan as stupid and pointless (i.e. reddit, 4chan, neogaf) played a huge part in keeping the pressure on long enough that it trickled up to the MSM. Hopefully Microsoft walks away from this humbled, but I doubt it.

They had a lot of games, but it was a pretty weird mishmash, the only game that looked like something I would definitely be interested in was Titan Fall and that's coming to PC anyway.

The Longest Journey is easily one of my top 3 favorite games of all time, however I refuse to get my hopes up until the game goes gold.

No need to worry about anyone who saw that video playing the game by my estimation.
