Oh fuck this story.

I think they're contorting MajorNelson's words really badly here, all he actually said was that there was a lot of inaccurate information going around and they'd make a formal statement later, not explicitly blaming anyway, and Microsoft really has given a lot of conflicting information lately. Though the "anti-used" part definitely seems to be false, if only because it's more like "anti-sharing" or "anti-eBay". I'm clearly not in support of this stuff, but there's voicing your grievances, then there's looking for an excuse to be angry.

I prefer this take on it.

Yeah, he's highlighting WHY these are "inaccurate and incomplete" and calling out Major Nelson on not really doing a damn thing to actually make it clearer, all he really did was state the obvious.

The 2 stories I linked and the one Kevadu posted say almost the exact same thing. Though, I'm getting dizzy with this mess of stories and news so I don't even know anymore...

Jim Sterling's seems to be more a snarky "I wonder why that's the case?" while highlighting how useless their "clarification" was, whereas the CinemaBlend story seems to want to take a leap of logic and make a sensationalist story implying that the statement accused journalists of going out of their way to stir up rage when that isn't really the case.

Some dork named Kevadu wrote a lengthy comment on that very article explaining why the PS4's CPU is a lot better than people seem to give it credit for.  But don't listen to him, he's probably crazy...

You know, if they really were from the future, then they should know how this is going to end. Maybe all of their anti-consumer bullshit is them trying to milk their future powered lotto ticket for all its worth. That, or they're taking some circuitous steps to try to preserve the future they came from by sabotaging the XBone Steins;Gate style.

You've misunderstood me. I just seek your death only because you're in the way of my goal of world conquest. I can't help it that I have evil ambitions and am named Dark Lord. Honest.

Anyone else disgusted that XBLA games won't transfer over?

Hell, PSN games won't either.

It just feels so wrong.

So the winner on twitter between the PS4 and Xbone is clear.

http://www.gamespot.com/twitter-battle/xbox-vs-ps4/

Poll has been going for nearly a week now and the results have been fairly consistent. PS4-87% of the votes, Xbone- 11%, Memory leak(?)- 2%. I would love to be a fly on the wall at Microsoft right now.

Frankly, I think the Ouya is starting to look pretty appealing.
