MS Xbox One CM “Too Much Even For Americans”

Microsoft’s decision to market the Xbox One as a cable TV replacement for Dew swilling EA Sports fans is enjoying near universal ridicule online, as the response to their latest advertising masterpiece makes clear.

Unbelievably in light of the reception its initial launch received, NFL is still the highlight of their marketing efforts:

This has not proven well received:

nfl-on-xbone

It is too much even for YouTube denizens, attracting thousands of angry comments:

“I started laughing when i saw the dislike bar”

“LMAO@ THE FUCKING DISLIKES. Omg I just died. Everyone knows this thing is going to be a pos before it even released. Buy a PC.”

“Why so many dislikes?”

“You know that a consoles are supposed to play games, right?”

“Because people are not happy they don’t have enough money to buy both consoles and they are jealous.

Mark my words, people are going to be bored with the PS3.5, two to three weeks later they are going to be board because of lack of high quality games.”

“We came to laugh at your ridiculous excuse for a gaming console.

No, we don’t know that it plays games. As far as I know this thing plays football games on sundays, connects you to asian men on rooftops and will power up accidentally whenever you say anything close to ‘Put socks, ON'”

“Xbox, did you not understand the first time that we want GAMES!”

“It would be cool if the xbone wasn’t a 500$ piece of shit.”

“Why would anyone buy a $500 GAMING CONSOLE to watch TV they already have.”

“Read the tiny ass disclaimer on the bottom. Monthly subscription required for Xbox One features. Now who is going to pay 10$ a month just to watch TV through a TV input machine? No one Microsoft. Stop trying to make the xbox seem appealing to non gaming audiences.”

“Yeah, I noticed that too. A lot of the people watching this ad aren’t gonna know you have to subscribe to xbl gold and the nfl package just to get it to work. In fact, all the xb1’s features are stuck behind that xbl gold paywall.”

“You lost the war.”

    Really, showing the NFL crap during the first NFL game makes sense. But it also shows where MS's priorities are with the XB1, and it isn't games. For something that is supposed to be a gaming console first and foremost (no matter what rhetoric MS spouts, people will want it for games) one would expect the games to be at the forefront. Nope, the XB1 just so happens to play games like a smartphone.

    Yeah, I really don't want a cable box that uses 500Watts per hour.

    When you're not gaming it doesn't use anywhere near that much power.

    That's kind of what everyone was mad about the PS4 wasnt it? They were upset that it's a "socialstation" and not a "playstation." The problem is that this social crap keeps growing, everyone and their grandma plays games like candy crush, which this site keeps spamming me about, so now the game companies think they'll make more money making these social games and media instead of with real games. They'll still have real games, just not with as much effort.

    The problem I see arising with that trend is that no-one in their right mind should pay for crap like Farmville or such. I don't have anything against indiegames - but most of these social "games" are simply a moneygrabbing scheme. If noone produces "real games" anymore the game industry will probably die a slow and painfull death. In the meanwhile I'll go back to real "social games" and play more boardgames and cardgames while drinking a beer or two. Heck playing Halo 4 on splitscreen is more social then Farmville.

    I'm sorry, but wait until sales begin before you make statesments. I know that ordinary Xbox userbase thinks it's shitty (so am I), but you underestimate the quantity of stupid blockheads out there in USA who would gladly buy this piece of shit BECAUSE of that marketing. The kind of blockheads who's primary life interest is cars, beer, and football. There's just too many of them, you just don't see them online often

    Allow me to correct you, Xbone is not a brick. Unlike the xbone, bricks are useful, you can use them to build houses. I only see the xbone as something crushable for some expensive stress relief.

    Emulated FFX wont have the additional content of the PS3 remaster though.

    And the FFX remaster for PS3 is going to come with FFX-2 International edition, which never made it to the west before.

    Also, it includes new after game scenes, which could hint at a potential FFX-0, where the tale of Auron, Jecht and Braska is told.

    Well, Forza is objectively better than Gran Turismo so far and Halo looks like a good series. Can't think of anything else, though.

    The Halo series just got progressively worse, Destiny looks far better. Titan Fall is on PC anyway. All you've got left is QTE Romans and Forza.
    I'm amazed they're forcing everyone to get a Kinect but don't have any proper games for it to show off...

    Wii U has better games.

    Comment by Anonymous

    Titanfall: PC
    Dark Souls 2: PC
    Destiny: PC iirc
    Anything else worth playing: probably PC

    games not on PC:
    Dragons Dogma
    Dust 514 (seriously CCP - bring it to PC allready)

    games on XBone only:
    Forza (omg a racing game, yawn)
    That thing with the roman which looks like "God-of-War-on-quicktime-extasy" - who the f wants to play that? Play "Space Marine" it's basically the same.

    "both Titan Fall & Halo will be or are available on PC"

    The only Halos on PC are Halo CE, Halo 2 and Halo Spartan Assault granted you have windows 8.

    Nothing more so no Halo 5 and such will not be on PC.

    Just to begin with, I am sure as the games pour in we will see a lot of great games on BOTH consoles.

    The PS2 has a great game library. One benefit of playing games on a PS2 is that there are no firmware and OS updates, you don't have to install games, and there are no patches you have to apply to the game. You just put in the disc and kacho on.

    Actually, people go where the games are, if they are on sony, buy sony. If its xbox, get that. What ever console exclusives most appeal to you.
    Good reason why nintendo can almost do what they want and will still get alot of people because of there first party brands.

    Going to take a pretty compelling game for me to spend hundred of dollars on another console to play it. Quite happy with my PC & Steam.
