there really needs to be a pinned thread so we can dump all these stories into there.

Meh, I think this is hardly a scandalous comment from Mattrick. Posts like this make me think that people have never listened to game companies or hardware developers before. It's like they just woke up to how overblown or overconfident comments from them can be about consoles or games, but then, they're only focusing on the evil of the week.

I'd say Mattrick was surprisingly level-headed on it. ha. Microsoft says the Xbox One is worth thousands; Sony said the PS3 was -priceless-. ;)

its people riding off E3, and its been soo long since the last beginning of a console's life also. so this is like a big E3 for a new generation of internet users id think.

there is some truth to what you say though, as sony had this same hubris in the beginning of the ps3 cycle.

But cmon now dont you think your going over-board with the "X Microsoft employee said this" thread twice a day?

i made only 2-3 threads,

as much as i personally hate the policies, im not specifically making this to hear people shit on microsoft some more, im more interested to see what the general reaction this crowd has to this news, good or bad.

dude, ultimately if these are bothering you so much, vote with your clicks and comments and Dont click or comment on them, and then the thread will get buried , simple as that.

But if I don't like them shouldn't I also be able to comment on that fact?

true, no snark, thats the power of opinions,

but all im saying is you'ill just be surfacing up threads you dont like.

Why did you have this up and ready to go?

i only replied that to that dude, , wasnt going to make a thread about it as that would just invite unnecessary trouble ,

i find it real interesting that the vitriol hasn't stopped and its not the usual "vocal minority" excuse people like to write these crowds off as. im super curious to see if this ultimately pays off for microsoft

they are obviously listening to that vitriol as well.

That all seems really petty.

more power to those people if they feel so strongly imo.

THOUSANDS OF DOLLARS of value folks, even though its a crazy comparison, i do get where he's coming from when he says when compared to other electronics $499 isnt too bad,

but saying consumers are getting THOUSANDS OF DOLLARS of value...............jesus

Microsoft's hubris is quite fascinating to see on display, i am ultimately curious to see if it pays off for them and if nasty policies and ok exclusives (except titanfall) be dammned, and this thing takes off due to the "shiny appeal" of controlling your tv and changing inputs with your voice.

or if they become the sony of 2006 this gen and suffer a good lead/momentum because of it.

Microsoft really has lost it. Even if they tried to fix their idiotic policies, it's way to late. The damage has been done, and their ignorant reasoning is insulting. It's like they spit in our face, and expect us to lap it up.

you seem to aggressively hate the xbone, i think you're going to really enjoy this :P

http://uk.gamespot.com/news/microsoft-defends-xbox-one-500-price-point-were-over-delivering-value-6410352

Whichever console your leaning on and have alligned yourself with, im sure we can agree on one thing, someone needs to make don mattrick shut up.

he's apparently speaking out and defending the price point of the xbox one, saying that its a reasonable price......im just gonna post the quote from don mattrick here.

"It's a lower number than some of the analysts had forecasted," Mattrick said on Bloomberg TV.

"We're over-delivering value against other choices I think consumers can get. Any modern product these days you look at it [and] $499 isn't a ridiculous price point. We're delivering thousands of dollars of value to people, so I think they're going to love it when they use it."

Competitor Sony will offer its PlayStation 4 at $400 this holiday season, but Mattrick believes consumers will choose Xbox One for its suite of exclusive services and applications like an improved Xbox Live, as well as Skype, Twitch TV, SmartGlass, and Kinect.

THOUSANDS OF DOLLARS of value folks,

even though its a crazy comparison, i do get where he's coming from when he says when compared to other electronics $499 isnt too bad,

also if you're tired of seeing the "internet hivemind" response to the xbox one, why are you even clicking on the thread or even posting in this thread.
