I agree. I'm happy I'm waiting up to 3 years to decide which system I'm getting.

I mean Halo 5,Destiny,Deadrising 3 are XBOX ONE sellin points for me. But Microsoft is still swaying back and forth with my opnion on the console.

Good thing I can get my GS buffed up quite about over the next 3 years catching up on old games (Got my 360 last year)

I never really kept up with him or Major Nelson. I'm not THAT BIG of a gamer nerd to look up the CEOS KIDDING.


Anyway from what my E Friends were saying about Mattick he sounded like a moron. ''You can't play 360 games on ONE,buy a 360 then boo hoo.'' and other stuff. Funny thing is he was the one (No pun intended) that was hurting Microsoft the most during E3.

I think he was mostly just pissed things weren't going his way. They were just not really prepared to explain the DRM policy and the online-connection requirements as well as the Kinect and the price disparity ...

It was just too much bad PR and he just let a reporter get under his skin.

Sony did such a great job PR-wise that people barely even noticed that Microsoft's E3 Press Conference was almost entirely filled with GAMES, which is what people wanted, and yet it still wasn't enough. Especially not once Sony started playing to the crowd with their tongue-in-cheek "trading games" video and such.

I think it was all just too much for Mattick.

I don't think you could blame the reporter (Geoff Keighley is his name btw) for simply doing his job and just asking the questions that we (the consumers) wanted answers to.

They've been developing the Xbox One for how many years now? So to say that they weren't really prepared to explain the policies that they knew people were going to get worked over is either arrogant, or ignorant (or maybe both).

When you say things like:



How do you think people will respond? Even if he really did feel that way, there were much better ways to phrase it, and as someone who was the President of one of the biggest companies in the world, just shows how unsuited he was to handle his job (seeing as how talking to reporters/the public is one of the job traits of being a president).

he probably left from the shame of sticking up for the old xbox one policies, by saying we still have the 360

Oh, I don't blame Geoff Keighley at all.

The best reporters in the world are the ones who ask the "tough questions", the questions that "no one wants to answer."

It was Mattick's fault for letting all the bad PR and pressure get to him and make a snide snappy response that started his downfall. I don't blame the reporter at all.

I used to have alot of respect for Geoff Keighly, especially during the times he defended video games against people like Jack Thompson (during the GTA "Hot Coffee" incident) and against Fox news during the Mass Effect 2 love scene. However, after the "Doritosgate" incident (where he earned the name of "Doritos Pope"), I'm embarrassed to know that he's still considered (by most people) to be the face of games journalism.
