...is what he's basically saying here.

In an interview filmed prior to Microsoft’s E3 2013 press briefing and published on GameTrailers, Microsoft’s Don Mattrick has addressed concerns about the compulsory connectivity requirements of Xbox One.

“"Fortunately we have a product for people who aren't able to get some form of connectivity; it’s called Xbox 360,” said Mattrick. “If you have zero access to the Internet, that is an offline device.”

Mattrick is aware of the kinds of gamers who’ll be missing out on Xbox One, and “absolutely” anticipated some blowback, but went on to reiterate he feels they have made the right call.

So... they were expecting blowback, they know that a lot of people are going to be pissed off, and yet they still think they're making the right decision?...

But he didn't goof. He made the right decision.
Sony will hail supreme, with Nintendo bro'ing it up along side of them. What's so wrong about that?

Why should people waste time on a console with outdated features, inferior specs, and behavior that actually limits enjoyability and goes against the whole general concept of console gaming, when you can have two superior systems? One that can play amazing games, and with more features, backed by a company that actually wants the users to ENJOY FUN, as opposed to restricting it. And one that is innovative, allows for a wider demographic of gamers, allows enjoyment, and strives to compete while not forcing stupid gimmicks. Both of which, actually try and cater to their fans and customers to a certain extent, rather than, again, forcing their own gimmicks on the users to the point of disdain.

Unless of course your question is rhetorical.

...Microsoft is forcing the kinect. seems gimmicky to me. Xbox One is everything that gamers don't want, and they're not getting the message. They're fucked. And they're being incredibly stupid for not seeing it and still trying to justify buying an Xbox One.

I think you're under the impression that I'm talking about Microsoft being the superior company in this scenario.
I'm talking about Sony and Nintendo respectively.

I like monopoly. I always choose the iron, and I'm pretty good at it.

I'm so confused. Are you praising Sony and Nintendo, or Sony and Microsoft?

I prefer the Pretzel. If the computer picks it before me, I restart the game. #Pogo.com
