In an anonymous post on Pastebin a supposed Microsoft Engineer gave insight into what he thinks is happening with the Xbox One. Now lets be honest, there is definitely some speculation on whether or not this person actually works for Microsoft or not. Although his comment “I work in Studio A, 40th ave in Redmond, Wa. The thai place in the studio cafeteria has double punch wednesdays. Go ahead and call them and verify if you want,” really does make me want to visit the Thai place he mentions, but I am not lucky enough to work for Microsoft.
That being said the person does make some very interesting points about what Microsoft is trying to accomplish with the Xbox One. Apparently he frequents /b/ and in response to some of the content he perused while on /b/ he was upset enough to risk losing his job by posting the following point.
“Honestly, if you care about anything other then pure games AT ALL. Xbox 1 > PS4. If all you do is play games, and nothing else, PS4.”
He throughout his post says things like Xbox One is the new Steam, that cloud computing is awesome, and “New tech, new req. This allows us to do cool shit when we can assume things like you have a kinect, you have internet, etc.”
But the bottom line is, if you are a gamer, then buy a PS4, cause Xbox One is not about “pure games” and “This was all from the Microsoft engineer that was on /b/ last night.”
You know Mr. Microsoft Engineer… I kinda agree with you.
Seriously check out his post, it is quite informative.
