Putting my comment on a top rated comment just because more people will see it, I've had enough of sitting in silence feeling like the world has decided to troll me.

At a cursoury glance it is easy for anyone with half a braincell to notice all of the sources in the content are not from actual microsoft employees, they are from various magazines and reviewers, reviewers have already made their stance clear; they will speculate wildly and assume the worst.

At a closer look it is clear to see most of this is out of date, it would be nice if anybody actually looked at the FAQs microsoft put up after their bombshell of a reveal (who's bright idea was it to invite game reviewers to what was definitely a presentation aimed at developers? whether or not microsft actually are evil mostly remains to be seen, but they certainly are retarded.). The FAQs actually flat out state most of this is bollocks.

That is entirely possible. The games could be utter *****, just like the ps3 on release, that's why the 360 out sold it. Wild speculation will not get us to an informed consensus though.

Back to serious stuff, it could be programmed to recognize certain logos or brands (like in t-shirts and bottles) and then send related advertisement. It really wouldn't surprise me...

I am seriously praying this is all a Marketing ploy from MS.
That all of this is all a bunch of lies to make us hate the XB1.
Then at E3 they reveal that everything that they told us about their console was just the opposite. That it actually has backwards comp, no used games policy, has all the great franchises we´ve come to love and that it´s not just another way to watch goddam movies and tv.

If this happens, I will be a devoted xbox fan for this console generation and the next to come.
If not...May god have mercy on your soul Microsoft, because we won´t.

This will not happen, unfortunately. I'd like it too, but it won't. The fact that they're affiliated with NFL and other things means that this is a true commitment. NFL would not willingly enter into this knowing that it will actually gain them nothing. They had speakers at the revealing that wouldn't have appeared if it wasn't the real deal, because if Microsoft were to actually turn around and say that they were just lying and they know that the console they'd come up with was the worst **** ever, it'd be an insult to these people and companies.
