See ya sony! Back to Xbox!!!!

129 replies 2674 views Edited Jun 19, 2013

Well, it happened. MS caved into the pressure and pulled a 180!

http://news.xbox.com/2013/06/update

Looks like I will be getting an Xbox One and be able to stay with a brand I've loved since the start =)

 

I'm really excited for this generation now. The playing fields have been leveled and PS will have a fierce competitor!

Now don't get me wrong, I enjoy PS and the exclusive games it has but I prefer the feel of the Xbox (reasons that will remain unlisted because every time I do it entices a fanboy war -_-). I will eventually get a PS4 when the price dropped as I did with the PS3. Till then, ta-ta!

Go,crawl back to them. But I'm staying here with a company that I trust. atleast Sony has yet to do anything to **bleep** me off.

X1 will still suffer from the ps3 launch syndrome anyway.

So, yes, they retracted the policy, but the fact remains that they would have preferred to have it in place.  They couldn't care less about you, or any other customer.  Preference aside, I simply do not understand how anyone can give that a pass.  I sincerely wish the best of luck to you all the same.

Why would you go back to M$, people that considered fees for used games and mandatory internet, in you can just stay with Sony, who never considered this in the first place?  Smiley Very Happy

I do not think this changes anything. Microsoft have proved that they are willing to try stupid things to limit the user. Just because they retracted these awful features just proves that they are not as suicidal as once thought. All this tells me is that Mircosoft WILL try to do this later rather than sooner and that they WANT to control your gaming experience. That is enough for me to not trust them and not want to support them.

 

You play games your way and the Xbox One was designed to prevent that from all angles. For all we know Microsoft will simply kick in these controlling features again slowly over time; or better yet, reactivate them once people buy the blasted thing.

 

This is what I was afraid of. People will see that Microsoft have "seen the light" and change back to the Xbox One. People should NOT think that simple direction change like this mean anything. Microsoft has shown their true colours and people SHOULD pay attention.
