Now that is funny. So Microsoft is not easing up on the push to upgrade to their latest polished turd. They are increasing the pressure on people by shortening the support time windows? It will be interesting to watch a multi-billion dollar corporation slowly kill itself by creating consumer outrage on every possible front. They will have to make a movie about the demise of Microsoft in a few years. Should be pretty good. Title of the movie? "We thought we were too big too fail, no really.".

He probably sold it off for pennies and then got a heart attack after hearing the game made over 1 Billion $$$.

I agree. Same thing with the main voice actor in one of their previous releases if I remember correctly. He signed a contract to do the voice work for 100K. And then when he finds out RockStar is making ludicrous sums of money for their game, people all of the sudden want a bigger chunk of that pie.

A good company doesn't always listen to its customers, though. Again, it drives me nuts when people say otherwise. Yeah, for some things you need to, but for other things you need to trust that your engineers know better than your customers. Customers hate change, customers hate new ideas, customers have no clue what they want, customers don't stop and think about how and why they use things.

A company that trusts its customers over its engineers ends up with The Homer car.

The problem is more that the Microsoft engineers aren't making good decisions, or whomever is making the decisions is listening to the wrong motivation.

I am not sure your post has any relevance to what I said. How does forcing a Kinect camera to be in every system and driving the price up for everybody even those who have no interest in the web cam have anything to do with the 'engineers' knowing better than the customer? How does the 'always on-line requirement' have anything to do with an engineering decision? I see that more as a control feature than an 'engineering' decision. How is restricting the sale of used games an engineering decision?

And seriously, what kind of comment is to say "Customers have no idea what they want? Are you being serious? If they don't know what they want who the hell does? Did all those millions of people get "tricked" into buying an iPad? Your comments sound like something taken right out of the Microsoft Employee handbook. Wow.

Me and you currently live on separate planets my friend. Say hi to the martians for me.

For not listening to their customers, thinking they can do whatever the hell they want because, "Look at us, were Microsoft, the biggest company in the world. Don't like our products? #DealWithIt". Followed by the 1 finger salute to their customers when they complained. You know the people who made you billionaires? Yeah us. Many complained both about being forced to use a tablet UI on a desktop computer with their catastrophic release of Windows 8 and multiple issues with the XBox fifty-cent or is it called the XBox 180?

Long Live Playstation 4. Tip to Microsoft, at least try and act like you care about your customers in the future. It might help you make a few more sales.

@BigShot

Bots? You sir, need to be waterboarded. Multiplayer with bots becomes boring and less satisfying than defeating a human that you can taunt and humiliate after punishing him for awhile.

Thumbs down for bots. The one thing I especially hated about bots was connecting to a server and "not knowing" whether who was a bot and who wasn't. Very deceptive stuff. How upsetting it was to discover I was playing against bots and not humans in the past.

Oh goody goody, voice recognition. Almost gets me as excited as the thought of the kinect. I get to wave my hands in the air and talk to myself. If someone sees from a distance they'll think i'm a psychopath.

Give up the stupidty Microsoft. PS4 wins, you lose. #dealwithit

@Jivaro,
Very well said my friend. I wanted his ass gone for one reason alone. Perpetuating the biggest fraud of all time on the American public. And that is trying to market Windows 8 as a desktop operating system. Clearly, there was hardly anything to differentiate Windows 8 on a tablet from Windows 8 on a desktop.
I thought that Microsoft had finally realized that old saying, "Don't bite the hand that feeds you" in my anticipation of the release of Windows 8.1. But Windows 8.1 proved that they still don't get it. Windows 8.1 is as bad a failure as Windows 8.
Goodbye Ballmer. Please, do not let the door hit you in the ass on your way out. The customer is always right. If you don't believe that, you shouldn't run a business.

Excess of anything could lead to early death.

Therefore, this is a moot point. A waste of good webpage space but I guess silly stories have their place.

And 100x more retarded. Worst UI ever designed for a desktop. No thanks. Perfectly happy on Windows 7 Ultimate. I'll let all the wannabe chimpanzees iron out the kinks for me in the catastrophe they call Windows 8. Wake me up again, when we get to Windows 9 and I might be interested. That all depends on whether Microsoft gets their hearing aids fixed or not. Windows 8 for me? Hell nah. Keep it. Windows 8 for you? Whatever gets your rocks off. LOL.

Skip this version of Windows all together and continue using Windows 7 Ultimate until the year 2020 when official support finally ends. Done.

Hey just because most of us aren't Pedo Bears like you probably are doesn't mean we have things to hide too. If you're dumb enough to be sending sensitive and illegal material online that's not anyone else's fault. If you're dumb enough to not understand the difference between general privacy and public interest that's not our fault either. The rampant paranoia of Americans like you is a great source of amusement to the rest of the world most of the time. It never ceases to amaze the rest of us about this little fantasy world you exist in.

I love this guy. He basically said the same thing as he did before. That is...if you are a person who does anything in private you are a terrorist or a pedophile. Bravo my friend. Bravo. And I am the one living in fantasyland? LOL.

*whispering to people who have a brain* I think this guy is a government troll.

Forgetting for a second the Orwellian overtones how many people are sending emails they should be worried about to begin with? If that's the case then they must be involved in something shady if not outright illegal, right? There's nothing in my email or posts that I care if the gubment is looking at.

I love this guy. He would make a wonderful politician. "Setting aside the fact that the 'Prism' surveillance program violates the 4th amendment of the United States Constitution, what seems to be the problem?".

Priceless.

@NegaDeath,

Very well said.

According to the backwards way of thinking that Cutter is engaging in, people who have blinds in their home must be hiding something. Quick, get some search warrants on all people have hung drapes in their houses. They are probably terrorists!!!

"If you knew what I know, you might not use it either"

I do know what you know. The NSA is collecting and storing every email message sent on the internet through a program called 'PRISM' which is in violation of the 4th amendment to the United States Constitution. Which was revealed to the world by Edward Snowden. If there is anybody who doesn't 'know what you know' at this point in the time, they are living under a rock somewhere.

They already greenlighted "Dragonslair". Not sure why they didn't do "Space Ace" at the same time. Seemed like a no-brainer.

Well the trailer is not really indicative of the game. But if the trailer freaked you out then yeah, Alice 2: Madness Returns is dark and not just because of gore. The story is actually deeply psychological and extremely *grim* to boot, since Alice is essentially fighting for her life (she is about to be lobotomized in the real-world and doesn't know anymore what's real, what's memory, and what's made up).

And since she has memories of violence (Child abuse element) parts of the dream world are reminiscing about that, quite bloody at that. But it is not gore for gores sake. Every level in Alice 2 has a purpose and a connection to a specific memory and feeling of Alice. I actually liked that more than Alice 1. But part of that because of the visual design. The gore you allude to has a very specific plot reason and is not just there for shitz'n'giggles. Although when it is coming, it comes hard. Because Alice changes in the dream world to be much more violent.

Anyhow, if you don't want to buy it you can always watch a let's play The Story is very well done, and the visuals are absolutely stunning.

The gore might fit in with the plot but I still believe levels of realism can be tailored to the audience you are trying to attract. The gore in certain arts(movies or games) can be toned down without ruining the story. That's just my opinion.

I watched the movie 300. The story was great, the cinematography was great, the gore was a little over the top for me personally. I think it's an incredible movie but I hesitate to watch it repeatedly because of the gore factor.

Great stories won't suffer from using a few less pints of blood in the end.

Am i the only one who loved the American McGee's Alice games? Didn't pledge on this, but animated Alice in even weirder lands doesn't sound bad at all. Of course, 200k won't get you much more than a 20m animation.. in Anime quality...

I love the first version of the game they released back when there was no electricity(yikes, heheh) but the second one went down a much darker path(specifically a path too gory for me, gore for gores sake is not my thing). I watched the trailer, which freaked me out, and basically forgot about the second version after that.

So, I got mixed feelings. Loved the first one, never even tried second one. If they use imagination and creativity versus relying on gore to sell a 3rd installment in the series I would be interested. Hell it can even be a darker theme but leave some stuff up to the imagination for Gods sake.

Thank God for trailers(movies and games). The trailer for the second installment left me scarred so I didn't see much point in playing a demo.

Apparently, the original author of this posted link to Sony's comments hasn't been keeping up with whats going on with XBox One.

XBox 1 sounds like it's DOA, kinda like Windows 8 was DOA. So, it's not all that surprising. Sony is capitalizing on all the bad press Microsoft has been getting for trying to do some really stupid things on XBox One.

And I must say if I ever were to purchase a game console, it looks like it would be a PS4.
