They're desperate, I hope the Xbox One fails, they know how to be trolls, I'll give em that. When I go to Best Buy on Saturday if they so much as try to ask me, I'll laugh.
Yep, that's competition for you, nowadays.
Microsoft employee: Hey guys, shouldn't we be using our money to make our products and services better so customers genuinely prefer them?
Microsoft boss: Who let that guy in here? Get him out of here! *guards drag the man away* As I was saying, here's all the money to pay people to say our product is good on reddit and other internet forums. And here's the money to send people to Best Buy to bash other competitors' products.
If its true I pity them, if they really want to sell their console they ought to lift all those stupid restriction on one.
I am a gamer, I had ps3/xbox 360 /wii /3ds/ds and the list goes on but as I see the facts I won't upgrade to xbox one because of the restrictions and maybe in the future I will buy the ps4 (I have a wii u). For me no used games, online every 24h is a nightmare; for god's sake I have only a weak connection on net in my country and I really don't need the ms godfather to monitor me.
Aren't those practices illegal? Pretty sure deterrence is illegal in the EU and US.
I would take the word of a tramp on the street (or his dog) over a game store clerk these days. Why would Best Buy have contracts with Microsoft and Sony to limit competitor demo stations? That's possibly the stupidest thing I've heard all week, since the two contracts would surely conflict with each other and almost certainly infringe upon each other.
On another note, my cousin's dog's mate's owner told me Microsoft and Sony have hired guns on the rooftops across the road from Best Buys, sniping anyone who comes out carrying a Wii U.
An interesting read, http://www.justice.gov/atr/public/speeches/5076.htm Pretty sure this would make Microsoft's going in there to deter customers illegal
While I agree, it was weird that days ago, Best Buy pulled stores off their Nintendo Experience list.
Is it just me, or is Microsoft becoming the next Mormon Church? That outfit looks very familiar... if only he had a bike helmet too...
Warning: Spoilers inside!
I'm not sure whether this is funny or just sad. How stupid of a salesman do you have to be not to recognize impossible sales?
They're waiting in line to play an UNRELEASED VIDEO GAME! That's a concrete thing just in front of you. You're not going to convince people otherwise with a promise, no matter how good it is. And that's not taking into account that most of those people are there exactly because of that event. Or those horrendous features of the xbone.
Jeez...it's like standing in line for a roller coaster and some guy comes along and asks us if we wouldn't be interested to ride a different coaster half a year from now. Yeah...good luck with that.
I swear...if one of those guys managed to convince even a single guy to leave the line...then microsoft should give that guy a decent raise and let him lead the company's PR-department...because he would have pulled off the impossible. a miracle.
Those Microsoft agents are pinheads, plain and simple. Anti-competitive deterrence is illegal as far as I know http://www.justice.gov/atr/public/speeches/5076.htm
Sending your reps into stores to talk customers into buying your products isn't illegal (at least not in Europe), as long as they don't say anything misleading to deter the person from a competitor's product. Some of the other stuff on that list would probably violate antitrust laws, but IANAL and I'm hard-pressed to believe it anyway.
Could be just a coincidence, or there might not have been enough stations to go around.
Tagged rumor for obvious reasons.
Easy there, lol, Microsoft tries to sell garbage as "Freedom and gaming" when anyone here knows it is not. It is control and $ grubbing, lol. What I will say, tactfully here (those who know will understand)...is it is like shoes. Somebody going door to door to peddle some generic knock off as an atcual Nike would be laughed at. YET, so many fall for it. Xbone needs to stand on it's own and represent itself; surveillance device with gaming built in. If a Wii U were packaged in a PS4 box (or vice versa), that is extremely deceptive. Not sure if the sarcasm about "Door to door BS salesmen" is related to apologetics but seriously, most can get the analogy to shoe brands and mis-representation being used to sell garbage. "This is Nike, see the fake logo put on it in Mexico? Ignore that, don't look inside the shoe either, just buy it first." Those things always pray on the ignorant. Not ignorant as in "Stupid" but literally, the ignorant.
I found a DVD a relative had, lol, given to them by a door-to-door salesman. Those people kept coming back, offering to do yard work, offering to help her clean, etc (older woman). I was there and I said, "You want me to talk with them?" Regardless of what it is I demand the f-ing truth. "Nike" basketball shoes are not the same as "Nike of Mexico" shoes. For those who are "in the know" the references may even be funny. I thought it was funny Randomizer, people can speak up if they are offended, posts can be edited. MS is that salesman selling garbage, plain and simple.
Huh. Maybe that's what happened to me. Two guys were standing outside the Galleria Best Buy, talking up a storm about the Xbone. I went to the Wii U kiosk to look around, and they were saying some really mean stuff to me about playing a girly, kiddie console like the Wii U, and how much better the Xbox One is.
That's what's actually being said on NeoGAF.
Hmm. I'm going to check out the source link then. If those were actually Microsoft reps that were harassing me, I swear, I will go back to Best Buy, and give them a piece of my mind.
Just tell them to make like an Xbox and Go Home ;O;
or you can print this out backwards and iron it on a t shirt and go to best buy
