22. Re: MS Backtracks on Xbox One DRM & Region Locks Jun 19, 2013, 17:41 Creston
Phil Spencer, dipshit from Microsoft, just a week ago:

And the amount... there's kind of two vectors there, the amplitude and the frequency. You have a lot of people that are very vocal; you have a lot of people that aren't vocal. I don't take the feedback as being representative of what everybody thinks, and that's not dismissing what the vocal people are saying. I want to hear what they're saying, even when it's somewhat inflammatory in my Twitter account. I actually do read it all. And listen to the feedback. The feedback from the gamers make us better.

I wouldn't characterize it as blowback, because I get equally positive things that it's great that Killer Instinct is coming back or that World of Tanks [is coming]. I don't think I can take one side of the ledger without the other side; it's just part of the business that we're in.

Arrogant, dismissive. That entire interview was basically "Well yeah, I get it, but still, lookit all the content! Lookit Kinect! DEALWITHIT."

One week later, Microsoft waves the white flag. (At least partially. Then again, if people got the BS online requirement and the sharing thing nullified, now everyone needs to start yelling about the Kinect horseshit. Though I assume several laws quickly being put into place by lawmakers around the world are going to do that already.)
