    Well lucky for me nobody bothered me when I went yesterday. Had a great time playing SM3DW but I only got a Luigi hat as loot.

    Look, it's even the same guy! Great XD

    I jokingly told a rep from a game store yesterday I want to pre-order a Xbone. He told me I can't since they don't support shit. That was almost a literal translation btw. Then I told him I want to pre-order a brick, since it has the same functionality like a Xbone without internet. He told me he'd rather pre-order that one. Funny stuff^^

    The Xbox One is a innovative new console, and with the Xbox One Microsoft is doing all they can to support Indie Developers.
    You should all take a look at the Xbox One again but try not to be bias, Its actually quite amazing!
    Then you should preorder the console and spread the word that the Xbox One is good!
    Then you should check out my website http://www.microsoft.com, I make posts about great new technology's here!

    Thanks.

    dreamspark is a marketing method only born around 2008, there are others much more controversial and some even disappeared (eg : statistics no more report ie as a reference)

    Dreamspark, which is Microsoft's program to give away software to college students.

    TIL: giving away software is a marketing method and is controversial.

    I know that :) I was just explaining that in my first post I was referring to totally illegal methods like microsoft corrupting teachers in exchange of apology speeches and not to semi-legal dreamspark
    to go back to the topic, I think that the microsoft behaviour toward wiiu revealed in the topic is illegal :/

    ...You know for something to be illegal, it has to against the law, right? What law is Microsoft violating here?

    Unless Microsoft's employees start clubbing kneecaps or pissing on Wii U consoles, there is literally no case here whatsoever.

    Actively choosing to not buy a product is legal in most places.

    Why does the guy have a backpack on and no nametag? There's absolutely nothing official about him, besides the Microsoft font on his polo.

    And MOST OF ALL he's completely unprepared to answer consumers questions. Like the "Spybox" remark. If you're unwilling to buy an Xbox One, with a closed Operating System and private Network Infrastructure, you cannot be willing to buy a laptop, a phone, a 3DS, a WiiU... basically anything. They all have front-facing cameras. What exactly are you doing infront of your Xbox that you're unwilling to do infront of any other console or device, and why is it that the console with the BEST security has people fearing for their privacy the MOST?

    Last time I checked, my phone isn't always watching me. If it were, I had better stop using it for porn...

    Any app can be given the same essential permissions. And how many news cases have come out where computer webcams have been hacked into and monitored? It wouldn't be so much more difficult on any device with an open-sourced OS, while it's barely possible for the same to happen on a console or handheld with official software. So unless you're worried about Microsoft spying on you... but why would they need to or even want to?

    Like, for real. How is Kinect spying on you even a thing? Put a shirt over it. End of story.
