Who gives a dead moose's last shit? I love Microsoft for all they've done for us, but they're digging their own grave with the Xbox One.

Well they cancelled there post-E3 interviews, I wonder what else is going on at corp. HQ. Tragedy, after recent news, It seems to be PC, PS4 (and 3) and WiiU for my gaming as of now and the future.

If you let reddit decide for you what piece of tech to buy, then you deserve to get empty box in the mail regardless of the product it is that you're buying.

While this is certainly a sketchy practice at best, I have trouble getting outraged over it/ect ect over this after hearing dozens of cases of it from a dozen companies over the past few years, and those are only the ones we know about. Small potatos at worst.

Well now let's see, If the XBox One didn't have such terrible design ideas, they wouldn't need to do so much damage control in the first place.

So someone who says they work for someone that works for Microsoft said they saw someone on Reddit but aren't sure what they were doing...how the hell is this even news?

Reputation managers? LOL, nice title. This doesn't surprise me one bit about Microsoft, especially after their failed Microsoft Surface RT.

I personally don't mind this. If someone's opinion is swayed by how many upvotes or downvotes the product has, then it's just changing one uneducated opinion to another. I don't really care if it's in favor of Microsoft or against it.

You know MS aint the first to do something like this and probably aint going to be the last.
Its all about viral marketing.
But you gotta admit, how lame is it when these people get asked what their jobs are and respond "Spamming MS propaganda across the internet and trolling the haters."

They need all the help they can get. NEDM can't save face at this point. Stupid name, horrible design, and endless assault on the gaming aspect of the machine. It's like WebTV all over again.

It's beyond believable, it's true. Everyone major company does this to some degree, but you know Msoft is gonna be out in force with this due to all the hate the XB1 is getting and the ridiculously terrible news they just announced about screwing over consumers with the 24 hour thing, sharing a game once, etc... The only question now is whether the XB1 or the WiiU will be a bigger flop and with Nintendo announcing some popular titles like smash bros soon, Msoft could be screwed. Sony is just chillin' laughing at all the XB1 hate.

not any better than a company paying a website to post a positive article. most of these companies are co-owned by the parent companies, and are basically required to do it.
