Thank You, Gamers!

Yesterday, Microsoft tried to woo us with their Xbox One presentation.Well, that fell flat. No one was impressed.

But the real shitstorm started with the back and forth when some MS executives started praising their glorious ideas of “online once a day keeps piracy away” and especially the incredibly dumb sermon “with the 360, your son can play YOUR game in HIS room. With the Xbox One, he can play YOUR game on YOUR console (only)”.

They really thought we were that dumb, didn’t they?

Thankfully, the rebel alliance of gaminghood managed to strike back: Microsoft got bucket loads of ridicule, scorn and good old sarcasm heaped onto their stunned heads. Thanks guys, thank you very much. It really seems everyone in Redmond was deluded into believing we would all be happy sheep bleating “Xbox One!, Xbox One!” after being fed a lacklustre demonstration of Big Brother Kinect and EA exclusive slavery. Miraculously, we are still one step away from being completely braindead consumer pets!

Now, the big question is: Will Microsoft learn from the fallout? Will Sony be able to exploit Microsoft’s attempted suicide? Will they even backpedal on treating us like mere criminals just because we dare to sell our games (and thereby get money to buy more games, a fact easily forgotten)? Fuck knows. Let’s just celebrate today’s shitstorm, folks!

Rabidgames smiles: Sometimes, the internet can make you angry. And sometimes, it makes you happy – especially considering the irony 90% of the ridicule was typed on Windows devices …

  1. Its like you read my mind! You seem to know so much
    about this, like you wrote the book in it
    or something. I think that you could do with some pics to drive
    the message home a little bit, but instead of that, this is fantastic blog.
    An excellent read. I’ll definitely be back.

  2. I leave a comment whenever I especially enjoy a
    post on a site or if I have something to valuable to contribute to the
    conversation. It’s a result of the fire communicated in the article I browsed. And after this article Thank You, Gamers! | Rabidgames. I was actually excited enough to leave a leave a responsea response ๐Ÿ˜› I do have 2 questions for you if it’s allright.
    Could it be only me or do a few of the responses come across as if they are coming from
    brain dead visitors? ๐Ÿ˜› And, if you are posting on other social sites,
    I would like to follow anything fresh you
    have to post. Would you list the complete urls of your public pages like your linkedin profile, Facebook page or twitter feed?
