Good one, make more incendiary comments to **** people off.


I don't think that was very incendiary since he pointed out the ps4 is a good console. In fact, most of the comments seem to avoid making it about how much more 'awesome' the X1 is vs the ps4 lol. He didn't attack the ps4 as being inferior at all, just different.

They have had ample time, if they are thinking this will all just blow over they don't get it.



I'm not sure if they think this will blow over, but I am convinced they are still working out details as we speak. I also believe they can alter the current stated plans due to the fact that they are not finalized. Trying to build a Steam-like system with all these sharing features, etc, can't be easy or quick.

They have time to make us all feel better. We will see if they do that.

Major Nelson just tweeted that he is working on a blog post about family sharing.

Q. I don't care. I'm a lonely guy without internet connection, family, friends, girlfriend and even ****ing dog. I also hate M$ in general and xbone particularly.
A. Good. Go buy PS4. Hate is overrated and PS4 is a good console.




Flame-baiting if I have ever seen it.

Why are they finalising a rather important aspect after their big reveal? If Sony was doing something similar they'd be slammed as being incompetent, consumer-hating jerks.


People on this forum need to accept that MS made a gamble on the used game issue and lost. MS is trying to tell consumers what they want and consumers aren't having any of it.

angry nerds on forums aren't having any of it. The long term outcome is still very much up in the air.

I would like to point out that everyone hated Steam at launch, everyone hated Xbox at launch, everyone hated Playstation at launch, everyone hates everything at launch.

There's an update on that reddit post about sharing games with up to 10 family members:

Important Update: New information has risen relating to this feature. You +1 friend from your circle can play the same game at the same time. Others can still play from your other library selection.

If the source is accurate, I think the feature will be great!

Angry nerds are consumers, chief. In fact, they are generally the most informed consumers which is what makes this more of a problem for MS.


As it stands now those "angry nerds" aren't thrilled by what they see.

Everyone's a consumer. Not everyone is angry. You're conflating you and those who believe what you do with everyone.

I never said I was offended, I said it was flame bait. Where's the confusion?

Angry consumers go to competitors, that is not a secret. It seems pretty unanimous that Sony's showing at E3 was better than MS'. That is if you go elsewhere on the internet and read news.

It's not a secret, but that doesn't mean everyone agrees.

I thought Sonys game selection sucked. 80% of the stuff I could've wanted is already on my PC. And there's a lot to love about the X1 either way.

I was not insulting you specifically with the 'angry nerd' comment, just people who think because they have convictions about something everyone must agree with them.

Anyway, as I've said before, I'd rather talk about games so I'm off.

I didn't assume you were directing it at me. Everywhere I have been online seems to have communities that have overwhelmingly negative opinions of what MS is doing. That might change in the future, but I can assure you that MS is not loving this PR disaster. Not only because it has been bad for them, but do beneficial to their competitor.

This topic, by the way, has cleared up nothing because none of the stuff posted by the OP can be corroborated.

No one has solved my renting problem, I don't buy games, I rent 95% of the console games I play. Why don't I matter anymore?

As for the other 5%, I buy used, usually under $5, or on Steam, for under $5 (or $10 if its a goty), or up to $20 for a pack of atleast 4-5 games (most of which still cost over $30)
