So did you do like zero research before buying this thing? I wonder if this is how you make all your purchasing decisions. I mean you're obviously in the know enough to use the internet, why not do the logical thing and look into the products you purchase.
Do you really just go to your nearest electronics store and just buy whatever television the salesman tells you to?
You are seriously saying it's his own fault?
Microsoft marketing has been one clusterf*** after another, imagine dumbing down the hardware to include kinect and media functions and then marketing your console around those functions and it not even work outside the US.......
What was he supposed to do, not buy it and be unable to play the games he wants to play just because Microsoft are useless?
