RE: Xbox One fucks up. Again. Oh, you poor console sods
I'm a PC gamer and don't care.

Edit:

I did a bunch of reading on the console and basically came to this conclusion.

Microsoft wants to sell a computer, with a built in television recorder.

But..... People want a video game system that does gaming well, not a webcam, microphone, internet browsing, television recorder, that only works online with heavy restrictions.

People want to buy a machine that allows them to do as much as possible, with little to no restrictions, and high amount of customization.

This new machine looks like it's trying to catch a stereotypical middle class male.

When your fan base grew up, in a video game culture, this appeal to a stereotype looks like you have disregarded the people that are actually going to buy your machine.

TL;DR Bad Marketing, looks like king of all trades master of none, restricts users freedom.

I don't talk gay, I don't walk gay, it's like people don't even know I'm gay unless I'm blowing them.
