Never mind that they it looks like they had an intern slap this shit together in five minutes, and that this sloppy Photoshop mockup made it to their official site as representative of the game they are seemingly hinging their console's future on.


God, this is so obviously a PR move to distract from their dismal sales and recent string of embarrassments.

You try way too hard to find a reason to dislike things

And you're a blind idiot who wears stupid clothes and adds no value to the forum. Look at it this way: they dropped a ball that is incredibly easy to not drop, on the first public promotional material for their blockbuster title. It's comically amateurish.

Stay on topic.

Anyway, very professional box art:
the top red line is pretty shitty too, though the 5 does stand out. Nothing wrong with the logos, except that the MS studios logo is smaller in width. Same thing here, the red line on this logo is really fucking badly placed too. Whoever made this pic made it just as fast as the creators of the cover

Davo: angriest Microsoft customer of all time. I agree with you that they have had some backlash against their company recently, but it's more of the same from Microsoft. If you closely follow their releases, support for indie games, stances that are constantly changing, and general lack of embracing what the community wants, you shouldn't be surprised by their company trying to strengthen their "relationship" with their customers with PR news stints like this.

Halo's strongsuit was multiplayer and well-refined mechanics (well, except for the button glitches) that led to a above-average game. Story is something that has always been an issue, but is reaching comical levels at this point. This is "Chapter Two" of Terminators in Space - nothing interesting having to do with aliens or the Covenant, not even discovering other planets of humanoid life. Are we going to see the fabled "Reclaimers" yet? Anything that is lost in the terrible lore that is supported by scant concrete details? All I'm hoping for is an entertaining multiplayer that will last for around 30 hours or so...anything else would be having unrealistic expectations for a developer that has been handed a story with no prior development history and ability to create strong stories outside of Halo.

Here's a view of their stock prices over the last month:



And here is a view of their stock prices since last year, before and after the One was released:



And here is the percentage differences between Sony and Microsoft stocks:



I'm not really sure where the Xbox One is driving down those stock prices, but it seems as though they are doing better than ever recently. Is there some other reason Microsoft is making hand over fist that I'm not thinking of? Windows 8 not being total shit or something? New phones?

God, what they do to indies is fucking disgraceful. Never get into bed with Microsoft. Someone finish that metaphor with a good zinger. Ty


Their division profitability breakdown is interesting. I'll pull some numbers and post some graphs this weekend. I guess I should go ahead and make a haters ball thread so people don't whine.
