Xbox One – Voice Commands WILL NOT WORK

Image

As if Microsoft needed any more reasons for us NOT to buy their new donkey ship Xbox One Console. But now it seems that the much talked about Voice Command system will only be available in a few selected regions, leaving the rest of the world (Australia Included) in the dark, until….well whenever they feel like it! 

The exact cause of the disappointing announcement is unknown, but recent interview with product developer Albert Penello revealed how language localization and dialect could be the key trouble maker. (Because American English and Australian English is REALLY THAT different!) 

Microsoft has also announced that they have absolutly NO plans for use of the Xbox One unit without kinect, or a steady internet connection. 

On the upside, they have however released their new plan that wil enable Xbox game owners to SELL (not trade) SELL second hand games over the internet to other Xbox owners. While this feature is a great idea in theory, it still does not beat the traditional way of simply handing your friend a game you don’t play anymore. 

I think Xbox needs to go away and think about what they have done!

Microsoft’s Disgusting disregard to their Xbox Fans

Microsoft Xbox is already up shit creek with their announcment of so many dissapointing aspects of their new Xbox One, announced at this years E3 L.A. Convention. But it is their most recent comment, made by Xbox Official Don Mattrick that has disgusted and outraged faithful Xbox fans.

When asked by GN reporter about the Xbox One’s internet requirement setback, Mattrick arrogantly replied: “We have a product for those who don’t have proper connectivity, it’s called the Xbox 360.”
GN’s reporter was visibaly taken back and shocked by the remark, and stumbled to gice the response: “So, that’s it? That’s your response?”

The comment is a real insight on the little care Xbox has for it’s patient fans, who made Xbox what it is today, despite Microsofts many many many many floors.

Game Thief was informed of a video of the remark, but was suspiciously taken off the internet shortly after viewing.

I think the company needs a serious overhaul, begining with the sacking of arrogent pricks like Mattrick.
