If you try to use sarcasm in text then you don't understand it.

Most people just HATE MS because of the Xbox 360's RROD issue.

Yeah...How hard is it to make a sarcastic joke wheras proper wit is allot more harder and rewarding to pull off. Anywa majority of thetime sarcasm in text just does not work!

Why do I see so many people who hate Microsoft around here? They always say all Microsoft wants is your money, or whatever, but that's what most company tend to want, and Bill Gates is a pretty freakn cool guy lol.

Bill Gates was just some college student, big woop. He started making computer code for some computers called Altiars, which eventually led him to stealing Apples GUI idea for computers (after they stole it from xerox) and then pushed his OS using Direct X.

If anybody doesn't know what that means, I'm basically saying, Microsoft is a very important figure in computer software progress, and video games in America progress. Games, oh so long ago, were written on DOS, which came from Microsoft (not really, but they bought it off some sucker for some cash LULZ) which leads to a lot of gaming as we know it today. Now, imagine what it would of been like if Steve Jobs never had competition? We would all be using a religion I mean mac instead of PC's and games would be nothing like you know them today.

The fact is, gaming has come as far as it has today, largely because of Microsoft, and a lot of other things that you like were brought to you by Microsoft, so why all the hate? No, you don't have to particularly like a company, but why bash something you don't really even know anything about except a Xbox 360?

PS. Al Gore created the internet, why didn't you fuckers vote for him! If he had been president, we would be in flying cars right now instead of economic rescission!


bill gate is cool, i think why so many people hate microsoft is due to the fact that most players had ps1 and ps2 before, so they kinda become a sony fans, then just suddenly the xbox was made then the 360 w/c most of the games from the the 2 PS's are gonna be made for the 360 just like star ocean and final fantasy etc....

the only real thing keeping me from PCs is that I just cant use them very well. I am ok but I do not know enough about computers. Zune looks great so does Microsoft 7 the new operating system I just can't really use them to the fullest value.

I thought Crunchyroll hates Microsoft because the 360 doesn't have as many JRPGs as the PS2 or PS3 does. Also, most of CR are a bunch of Free MMO fags who worship every Korean game, despite the fact that any game from Korea is a rip off and a piece of shit.

It's not the issue of every company wanting money, it's just that Microsoft wants money for EVERYTHING. Hell I bet if they could charge you for breathing they would. They're that greedy.

Want this theme for your 360? Too bad, you have to spend Microsoft Points to get it. Wanna play your Xbox games on your 360? Nope, you have to get internet, pay for Xbox Live, and install the update from there to watch videos/play original Xbox titles on your 360. It's stupid. And before somebody says something I don't have a PS3 (know somebody who does though) so I had to bite the bullet and use what little money I had and get a 360 until I could get a job. Then I found out I had to pay for everything that was on their online service. Needless to say I only bought a couple games from the arcade feature there because of them charging for their online services. Times are hard. It seems a little unfeeling for Microsoft to make somebody pay to go online with their games when the competition isn't doing it.

Meanwhile, while Sony and Nintendo are also greedy they're not as greedy as Microsoft. Sony charges nothing for their online service (and it's actually at least 90% as good as Xbox Live) and for other stuff like themes, but their downside is that you have to buy their arcade games and stuff with a credit card. Nintendo also charges nothing for anything that isn't a peripheral or a system but you have to deal with those abysmal friend codes. But with me saying that the Xbox Live experience ain't sunshine and roses either and you actually have to pay for it on top of the little trinkets like themes and crap.

duuuh, ppl dun like Microsoft cuz they're true PS fans ! PS was there from the beginning for system gaming. Ever since Microsoft started making systems they've been more focused on graphics instead of good games ! Games used to be fun to play, my whole life used to be games. Now I'm paying 60 BUX for a game thats only 5 hours.. >=[

Oh wow. The fact that you care enough about themes to complain about them costing points is just hilarious. And seriously, you're basically pissed because using Xbox live and many of its features COSTS MONEY. Hey here's a suggestion:Stop watching your fansubs and go buy a DVD too. And while you're doing that, how about you stop playing your Free MMOs and play a good game that costs money or one that allows you to buy a server.

And just because the Wii and PS3 are usually cost-free when it comes to their online capabilities doesn't mean the 360 doesn't either. And really, it's sensible for someone to pay money to play online, as well as other things that don't really matter, like themes and music there. And while you're talking about Sony, you're complaining at how you need credit cards for the PSN's arcade games. Either just get the money, shut up about it, and just buy the damn arcade game.

It just looks like you're obsessed with things costing money. Just because it costs money doesn't mean it's a crime.

You know what Coglock, you're so deluded that it seeps from your ears.

I don't have a problem with it costing money. I have a problem with money being charged for EVERYTHING when the competition charges jack fucking shit for most things that aren't games and peripherals.

Look, I'll explain it to you in a way you can understand. If you're like me you probably have a shitty job and don't make that much at said job but need to stay there for certain reasons. I doubt it though, I just think you're a little boy who likes to act tough behind his monitor. I make enough money to maybe get a few games a week but I also have to pay bills.

Something you're also probably too young to be paying and need Mommy and Daddy to take care of for you (that's also most likely the reason you're so pissed off at me for such a stupid reason). I also have to buy food. That takes a huge amount out of my wallet every week (keep in mind I probably spend like 30 bucks tops on games a week).

Complaining about using a credit card for Sony's stuff isn't because I don't want to use one, it's because it's quite frankly kinda cumbersome to use. My friend just told me however that you CAN actually buy points cards for the PS3 so I take back that complaint.

Also, that fansub comment is the dumbest thing I've ever heard and a completely copout way to try to refute my point. 95% of my anime is on DVD and VHS, which I actually did spend money for, TYVM. It's not like I buy anime much anymore though because hardly any of it is interesting; it's all emo kids and waify main characters now. Fansubs usually aren't that good of a quality so I try to avoid those whenever I can. BTW the only "fansubs" I have are the Tatsunoko anime, most of which never came out here on DVD (excluding Speed Racer which I have for DVD except the last 12 eps and Gatchaman, which until I find the damn DVDs for sale again I will keep as fansubs). And I'd rather watch those on a TV than a monitor, 'cause watching anime on a monitor is wack.

Of course you're so busy being Mr. DefendMicrosoftAtAllCosts you don't even realize I probably have bought way more legit anime than you or pretty much anyone here ever did. Thanks for posting on a community like this which THRIVES on illegal anime and then trying to use something like "lol fansubs" against me. You win a gold medal. For hypocrisy that is.

Charging money for stuff that should really be free after all this tough competition comes along kinda is a crime if you think about it. Themes? Are you fucking kidding me? Especially when you can get themes for your PSP and PS3 for free. (Hell I bet if Nintendo had put something on the Wii where you could use themes theirs would be free too). I can understand charging for games (duh) and expansion packs (double duh) but charging to get the service when it's only about as good as the Wii's and PS3's online and then having to pay money for usually free stuff is a buzzkill.

I can't believe people are actually defending the greedy shit that Microsoft does-- that's like people who defend the shitty emo culture, or worse, actually defend that piece of crap Twilight! Or defend the politicians that like to ask for money for every little thing just 'cause they're afraid of being thrown in prison and being sodomized by Big Bubba in the next cell block.

What's kinda screwed up is there's all these people coming up outta the woodwork defending Microsoft like they can never do any wrong (seriously, Microsoft fanboys are even worse than Nintendo ones), when really Bill Gates is the only sensible person working there. The rest of them want money from you for you to be allowed to continue to blink. I mean, why defend these jokers so vehemently?

EDIT: Goddamn bold.
