@danmcn12: I see what you're saying and I agree that the gaming community can be infantile but to me that's peek-a-boo logic. Reversing their policies and backing off on some of the announcements they made doesn't mean that they never happened. I feel the opposite. I think it's infantile to forget about what Microsoft proposed just because they "changed their minds".
People are still offended. There really isn't anything that Microsoft can do at this point but pray that the internet is all talk and that gamers will buy their console like lemmings.
The gaming experience they proposed (kinect and whatnot) isn't something I can get behind until I really see it working as well as they claim.
