Hey can you do a angry rant on elder scrolls i am a very big mmo fan and fps fan but elder scrolls is trying to make us pay 15$ a month , im not saying its that bad i can afford it , its just i bought the game once isn’t that enough ?
Buy a failbox one???
Did microsuck pay you/ brainwashed you???
Why would anyone consider buying that POS of a system, after knowing that microsuck just wants to rape the hell out of the gaming community with all their bs?
Microsuck blew it big time, they have no honor, just greed.
Plain and simple their motto is: FCK U! Give us money!!!
I don’t trust them, period.
I’m staying as far as possible from any microsuck FUBAR product.
You are losing face and credibility with such comments.
Stay true, don’t pull a Xbox one on your fans.
Dont forget microsoft reserves the right to change any of their policies at any time, who knows if the changes they have made will stick around or not. But i have been reading however that sony was on board to do the same thing microsoft was and may have even had the idea first. Im nervous to buy either platform and wont be buying either at release until im confident one is more loyal to the gamer than the other.
I’m still getting a ps4 for two reasons. Reason 1:payback for Microsoft treating fans like dirt and thinking those policy’s were ok. Reason 2: I have a feeling once they have enough sales they put all those policy’s back on the console
well to late Microsoft trowed shit in my face with xbox 1
and since i don’t like the smell of it ‘im not gonna get the console… maybe next gen but xbox 1 no… this gen is to be skipped
Joe!!!!!! There’s this thing going around the Internet that Microsoft is doing a petition on getting those DRM restrictions back,and the worst thing is that 4000 people have agreed to this already. If you don’t beloved me go nonlinear and search or go watch boogie2988′s new video. Get on this now please cause it’s not bullshit.
I ment believe me. Sorry just had to tell you. Please I’m worried cause I pre -ordered the new xbox already!
hey Joe i love your rants and video’s, was wondering how would you like to come on my radio show? ive been apart of the angry Joe army for a long time on youtube and i just started becoming a internet radio host. i love your rants especially the one on deadpool, well i was wondering if you wanted to be interviewed on the web cast. just about gaming and new stuff in general like the DRM for xbox 1 and the new stuff for the ps4. the website is http://mmo-radio.enjin.com/ and my DJ name is DJ Miner well if you are interested let me know i would love to start this off with a boom from one of youtube’s biggest reviewer
a little late, but, does microsoft have user agreements/policies in place that allows them to change or alter the terms at their discretion? could their drm reversal be reversed again?
Wow, you real dumb if you are actually considering buying Xbox ONE now… How can you do that? They tried to screw you over… HARD and if you are now considering to get one then you are just saying: “Well Microsoft, it’s fine that you tried to screw me over so here’s a bunch of cash.”. Now I never was an Xbox fan nor will I ever be as they have always been inferior compared to what Sony brings out and I feel for you that MS tried to pull that on you… I mean I know what I would feel like if Sony tried that but consider this: Sony hasn’t. Microsoft already fucked you on several occassions according to your vids and now this and you are still saying: “yeah ok, here’s my money please keep fucking with me in the future”… That is just totally, completely and utterly insane…
Well actually Sony has done it too. Sony screwed me over with the PS3. Sony is not an innocent company. While they may not have gone to this level they have had their fair share of screw overs. Also it’s not saying that “Oh here Ill just give you money.” Microsoft listened to the fans and is trying to fix the Xbox to give the fans what they want. Honestly I haven’t seen Sony do that. Im not a fanboy of either mind you. I love both of them. Im just trying to get people to realize that both companies and consoles have their faults.
Please revise most of my previous comment. The points that IO wanted to get across was that both Microsoft and Sony have had their money whoring moments, and that they both have their Pros and Cons.
And this is for angry joe, look man your a cool guy that plays a ton of games infact i think you’ve played every game thats been out, i watch all your shows but it really does disapont me when you cant play games that are exclusive to psn such as fat princess, GOW, Infamous, Uncharted, LBP,KZ MAG??? you know what i mean like these are games that i already have because im a big SONY fanboy, and ill always will be becasue sony is the way to go. SO im actually really happy and suprized that your buying the PS4 and switching over. Good choice Sony playstation never disappoints
Hey Joe, with the recent events like john mattrich leaving to go to Zynga and Microsofts development team coming out and stating they’re still tweaking the system and has currently announced that the xbox’s performance is at 190+gb while the Ps4 still sits at 172gb. Do you think the Xbox one with them trying to make up for there past mistake is trying to make up for it ? E.g prize revision to be announced. Free xbox live 1 year membership for day one consoles and so on.
Btw the 172 GBHD can be updated to 200 Via playstation network or if you dont have internet lol then you can manually take out the HD and replace that with a 600 to 1000 GBHD computer yes i already did that with my playstation 3 HD and have over 50 DLC games on storage.
The price however still remains to be the same 499 Xbox and 399 ps4 lol yeah 399 after taxes that’ll be 440 still alot cheaper than that of the Xbox?
Joe I need your professional opinion should I purchase the PS4 or the XBOX ONE? Which will you buy
TBH thats an easy ass question to answer, Playstation 2 and the first xbox sold about the same sales, but in my opinion the xbox was slightly better, then the Xbox 360 came out, i bought that and released my old xbox was better lol, Mind you that the PS2 was still supporting video games even after the release of PS3, where as Microsoft stop making games for the Xbox,then the magnificent PS3 came out and shat on every console possible, with Blue ray technology, and internet being free. Plus a wide verity of video games,for the first batch. Ps3 is just better in every way possible. More exclusive and better updates. The PS4 is already off to a rocket start just being announced lol with tittles such as “infamous 3″ “kill zone 4″ “drive club” “LBP3″ “the order 1886″ “knack” and other exclusives that are not anouced but will eventually come like “Uncharted”. Now the xbox one exclusive are as follows “Halo 5″ “titan fall”"dead raising 3″forza motorsports” “RYSE” “quantum break” “Killer instinct” (which is awesome!) “sunset overdrive” “below” “project spark” “D4″ “Black TUSK” and lastly “Kinect sport rivals”. And other exclusive that arent announced, probably alan wake 2 or something like that? but ultimately PS4 will win, maybe not in the sense that their are games.. maybe their more idk those are the ones i know for sure though but my advise to you would be have some patients it’ll help your decision making worth while.
and i hope that helps .. I know what im buying this time around thats for sure.
Actually TitanFall truly isn’t an Xbox One exclusive, it’s a -Microsoft- exclusive until/unless EA decides to release it for PS4 as well eventually which they say is quite a possibility. It’s releasing for PC and 360 as well so.. definitely not an Xbox One exclusive. Just thought I’d point that out as it bugs me personally when I see people say it’s a XB1 Exclusive.
Joe I’m a big Superman fan but I’m still upset as to why the man of steel movie almost running it’s course in the theaters has not made as much money as Iron Man and Spider Man did? I mean what the hell is it going to take for all these Superman haters (Marvel fans,Batman fans etc) to like Superman. I’m sorry but not only has Superman in the comics knocked out the Hulk and Thor but really man of steel was more entertaining than the Avengers movie. What the hell? Your thoughts.
MATTRICK LEFT MS!!!!!!! He is going to Zynga!!!!
Actually, From the very basic point, spending hundreds of dollars buying a console (which is basically can only be used with the service and games provided and approved by MS ((not like a $500 pc))) isn’t that fair compared with contracted cellphone plan (which gives you at least so called “free phone”). so are we just buying a console or are we buying the actual service(games, entertainment)? YEAH and then why the fa are we charged by the MF piece of black box. and why do we need to pay for the maintenance of this device which should be taken care of by the service provider MS.
We didn’t change anything. E3, Sony slapped them with there dicks and now they are fearing for their gaming profit. I still will not buy one because they will screw you on something else.
Joe, I’d like to see your comment about PS4 now that E3 is over… I know you like the green machine, but give use blue ones something to think about…
You could also make a X1 vs PS4 review now that both consoles are in the air
Cheers… and keep up the good gaming work
More news about the One:
even better, a 18 year old ends up in jail for a sarcastic violent joke.
I dont’ want to live here anymore.
Joe has to do a retrospective on the xbox one now.
There’s no way he can possibly support this piece of crap.
Sure he’s a fanboy but I hope he’s intelligent.
It gets better:
Third party companies have to get a license to make the products for the One. Due to so many piracy problems, MS is CHARGING you money to make products to sell on their system.
What in the hell is going through their minds?
This also includes a headset, which is ONLY MADE BY MICROSOFT!!!!!!
Joe please don’t buy a Xbox one, please don’t buy a Xbox one, please don’t buy a Xbox one, please don’t buy a Xbox one……
I’m still not sure who to go with. I’ve been with both the playstation and xbox for my entire life. I can only go with one this time and have trouble tossing up which. I’m not being a ‘loyalist’ or a fangirl because I’ve preferred Xbox in the past, but I found online play, which I use pretty much all the time now, with Xbox was more entertaining than with Play Station. But then, Play Station came out with more exclusive titles that were totally awesome and worth just keeping the console hanging around for.
Like I said, I’m not sure who to go with. At the moment, I’m sticking to Xbox. I don’t know whether I should change or not… :/
Nicely done. But I bet they add the DRM back in a couple of years.
I really appreciate what Angry Joe does for the gamers. Even if microsoft did revoke the “family plan”, this was a huge win for consumers of any platform really. The moment that software and hardware companies think they can pull off the crap that microsoft tried to pull without opposition is when we start to lose what we are paying for in the first place. Thank you Angry Joe and everyone who put their time and effort into voicing their concerns. Also, God bless America.
“God bless Am–” What the fuck are you talking about?
This is exactly why everybody outside the US thinks Americans are biased little fuckwads.
Of course you burger-eating morons are going to prefer the Xbox, and will buy it at any cost, just to say “IT’S MADE IN ‘MURIKA LOLOLOL BEST COUNTRY EVAR”.
Dear fucking Gay Jesus, you people are a plague on the gaming industry AND the entire world.
Good! Stay in whatever third world country you were hatched. Nobody cares about what your little country thinks because Americans make the world go round’…lol..God Bless AMERICA bitch!!!
I am getting angry now. stop posting about furries here on MY website. it doesn’t matter if I like thinking about eating people, I would never ever do it. Its illegal.
Ummm, this isn’t YOUR SITE, it’s Joe’s you moron.
Hi there Angry Joe! I was never into Xbox or Microsoft in general. I was always thinking of them as an “evil” corporation. Though i do admit that 360 is a great deal for gamers. Now i was thinking about the whole policy reversal thing and an idea came to me. What if all these policies was always just a hoax. What if they never planned to actualy use any of those? Everyone hated the press conference, everyone hated their E3 presentation. What was the main reason? DRM, always online and region lock. Kinect obviously, but that hardly worth mentioning.Nevertheless Xbox One was getting pretty good preorders, at least according to Gamestop. And right after E3 they just change it all. “Fuck restrictions, we’re consumer friendly again”. During your interview with major Nelson he was constantly talking about the future and Xbox. And i thought “ok, so what is there view of the future? right now they are talking restrictions only, i don’t see anything new”. This is when i though why the hell they are not talking about the good side of always online? Do they even know what the good side is? Does it reall exist or is it just a set of restrictions to draw all the negative from actual game demos and essence of the console. And a week later they just reverse it all. So my question is what was their infrusctructure for the future? How will it be affected by the fact the it’s not an always online console anymore? Was it really necessary or Microsoft just distracted our attention and came out of this as a consumer friendly company who listen to the gamers? I still don’t think so. I’m not trying to underwhelm the input of gaming society, it just doesn’t feel right for me. I would like to hear your opinion on that, you saw it all live and maybe I’m not getting something here.
It was no ‘hoax’, Microsoft spent millions in developing the XBONE architecture DRM policy and software, it was not just small part, but a big part of the new system.
They thought SONY would follow, maybe the had a backroom deal, together but SONY said, ‘this shit is not going well for XBONE’ and dumped it entirely.
Anyway, the point is, if both companies had gone in with this insane DRM, Microsoft would not of backed out…like a 180…that’s what they should call this new system.. XBOX 180 DRM REVERSAL.. lol
Appreciate the reply. But my question remains.
My point is that we’ll never have an actual chance to see it. How do you know that they spent all those “millions”? They simply canceled the whole thing. Then again, let’s say they actually spent a lot of time and money on it. Why was it posed as a set of restrictions? Why where they talking about DRM and online check only? Where is the bright side of the idea? I may be repeating myself, but once again they were talking about “the future and infrastructure”. And i’m just trying to understand what it is, besides DRM and always online. For now i don’t see any evidence that ” xbox future” actually existed.
As for Sony and PS4. Even before the consoles were announced, pretty much everyone knew that Sony is not doing it. And still Microsoft continued with that concept, but canceled it right after E3.
me personally will not buy a xbox 1, maybe in a few years when i am more comfortable with what that system has become. I will not run back like a loyal dog to support a company just because they reverse their practices. They should have never tried to pull this bs in the first place. Microsoft has alot of work if they want to earn my trust again. i’ll get the ps4 when i can.
THE DRM REVERSAL!
joe i’m stick till the end and no one is going to change that !
Angry Army steals another victory!!
Maybe Microsoft pulled a Coca-Cola move? Do you know about the debacle of “New Coke”? It was a formula designed to appeal to more drinkers by being sweeter. Unfortunately, so many people were so enraged by the fact that the Coca-Cola Company changed their formula, that “New Coke” was actively being poured into the streets and shunned. Well, they went back to their original formula and made record profits from its return. Do you think that this was a marketing ploy a la New Coke? If it is, then they may just see themselves catch up to Sony in preorders.
Not from me, though. It’s disconcerting how a company can tote these policies, back them as the future of gaming, and then flip a 180 on them. If it was that easy to turn them off, how easy will it be to turn them back on over time? It is my personal opinion that your money goes farther with Sony. Don’t get me wrong, they’re just as money hungry as Microsoft or any other company, but to offer something like PS+ will allow gamers on a budget to still enjoy a plethora of games. FULL games. Heck, even if you’re not on a budget, PS+ can offer you experiences that you never thought of as being fun.
I was thinking the same way as you are. The “New Coke” thing you are thinking of but my thinking was.
There was not one good thing from the xbox one’s plans. It was so unreal right down to the name of the it.
The name was change so easy that It got me thinking x-box 180 “we are doing a 180 for you the fans taking in what you think so you will like us more than before.” The name still got the one in it and it fits with the 360
just fits to well like it was plan out to see what sony was going to do and what fan was going to say of it
I think that new name fits now perfectly!
Thanks for fight for are rights as games Joe! I must still say I really hope games listen to you and take all this for what it really is and not just run back to M$ after they just tried to F*** us in the A**! I will not just trust M$ after this and will get my PS4 day one and wait at least 2 years before I buy a XB1. M$ trying to spin intrusive DRM as a “Features” and the “Future” is just horrible and an insult to our intelligence! All those DRM polices would of turned game purchases into rentals nothing more and that just doesn’t sit well with me! Who’s to say M$ wont try to implement all these same horrible DRM policies/”Features” in the future sometime…….only time will tell I guess, that’s why I strongly advice waiting to get XB1.
Honestly Joe, I am pretty sure the pre-order numbers changed their mind. I am happy that the consumers won this one. I won’t ever buy an xbox again after the red ring of death and 60 dollars. You are right that the jackasses are pushing back. I don’t listen to them because they are f**ken idiots. They are not happy cause they are dumbasses. They can take their shiny toy cause I am buying a PS4.
I’m have admire your character and integrity, you exhibit good reasoning powers which seems harnessed with wise insight.
I’m glad to hear that Microsoft has changed its policies on the Xbox One’s DRM issue and thank you and your followers for their input & efforts.
Final word: It’s people such as you that the world need most of, keep up the fight and congratulations.
I agree with you 100% Matt. All this announcement proves is that they understand that their former move would’ve been fucking stupid and would’ve eaten into their ever-precious profits. It proves nothing about how good they are. It doesn’t change their attitude or what they’ve been proven to be capable of and willing to sacrifice for profit and monopoly.
I’m sorry, but already showed their true colors, I’m not willing to support a company that tried to bait its consumers into submission, saying “its hardwired, its not possible to change it” and then 4 days later switching it off…now they’re this great heroes or w/e, sorry but I don’t buy it…
I totally agrre with you Matt.
Bingo. No XBox One for me.
Same here. Not buying it.
No chance in hell that I’m gonna buy a X box one.Sony all the way.Never can trust Microsoft these days.Too much money.
Guys, guys,… we have to buy BOTH, because thats the only we we will have choice, if Microsoft gets out of the game console, that leaves just Sony, and that is a very dangerous for the consumer..
Sony will then say… What now bitches? and do whatever the hell they want including DRM from hell..
Wow! I’m shocked this actually happened. I had no interest in the XBOX One but i will at least consider this new XBOX 180 :p
Hi there AngryJoe.
UM you need to verify that you can play used playstation games on PS4, however i think you failed to mention that It can only be applied to PS4 games, NOT PS3 games. It is unable to play PS3 games.
Xbox One (whatever it called now) will be able to play used Xbox One games, NOT Xbox 360 games.
CAN YOU please VERIFY this situation ASAP? I think this going to deflated the Horray we won ballon very quickly.
Of course you can play used games on ps4 have you seen E3?
it’s just ps3 games that won’t work.
try and keep up.
My favourite bit of the ‘Broken hearted xboxone dev post (that was really written by a team of twenty M/S execs with a focus group next door!) “When your family member accesses any of your games, they’re placed into a special demo mode. This demo mode in most cases would be the full game with a 15-45 minute timer and in some cases an hour. This allowed the person to play the game, get familiar with it then make a purchase if they wanted to. When the time limit was up they would automatically be prompted to the Marketplace so that they may order it if liked the game. We were toying around with a limit on the number of times members could access the shared game (as to discourage gamers from simply beating the game by doing multiple playthroughs). but we had not settled on an appropriate way of handling it. One thing we knew is that we wanted the experience to be seamless for both the person sharing and the family member benefiting. There weren’t many models of this system already in the wild other than Sony’s horrendous game sharing implementation, but it was clear their approach (if one could call it that) was not the way to go….Hilarious! Familly sharing?! *wipes eyes* All the berks trying to say we’ve ruined 4th gen gaming by backing Sony are WRONG. I was thinking of going to go back to x box….Sony missed out last time because they didn’t think M/S would have the balls to release 360 so early that it had an epic failure rate that would sink other, smaller corperations, neither did I-I bought it-my first 3 broke, all within months, 1 within 28 days! So despite its advantages I jumped ship to Sony and have happily stayed there without any monthly subscriptions (my original fatboy ps3, despite its initial faults, is still working perfectly btw).
Sony listened, Microsoft thought they could still dominate the agenda and pull off the ultimate in arrogant money grabbing douchebaggery. They can’t. You tube, gaming sites et al… how could they be so arrogant? I’m fully onboard the ps4 now. Better specs, better ethos and no ass like a blood orange….
pretty much EVERY gamer I know down here in Bedford in the UK has gone PS4, literally everyone. even though they reversed the policies it still insulting to think that Microsoft was even considering those lame decisions, it just shows everyone how blatantly greedy they are. Sure there’s no more shit policies but the fact they were going to do it unless they were terrified out of their minds has already lost them a LOT of fans down here
Hi Joe, look, you know this is actually in fact a desesperate move of Micro$soft in response of how good we Gamers react at E3 with Sony PS4 presentation and the cost of the console, and As if this were not enough, the fact that Sony don´t make any restriction to the incoming PS4, so do not be fooled by MicroSoft Again believing they listen to feedback, because i don´t believe it, they feel threatened by the reaction of People cinsidering the PS4 the best choice for this new generation of consoles, I hope some day they really listen us, but this time it´s just a marketing move of this Monopolistic corporation, and I think you know, ok, good for us, the gamers or the Xbox Fans out there, but believe me my friend, I think Sony demonstrate this time supremacy, and they want to give us back good things to us for all the mistakes they do in the past with the PS3, that´s my humble opinion, thanks for letting me express, you fucking rock amigo!
Greetings from Argentina, the south american country with most Angry Joe fans! \m/ \m/
there’s nothing wrong with the ps3, it’s just because online on the xbox 360 is more popular than ps3 and secure, i have both consoles and play the ps3 most because they have better exclusive titles than xbox since i only play a handful of games online (mostly offline) but with everything else i can’t tell the difference, they are both brilliant consoles.
They did not listen to the fans, they listened to the preorder sales.
Fans are the pre-orders who else would reserve it so early?
The difference is is that they didn’t change the stuff because of all the negativity actually voiced out by the fans, physically or digitally. They solely looked at the numbers following the $’s in those pre-order sales results.
If it was really due to the fans themselves, they would’ve immediately sent out some kind of message, or at least announce at E3, that they heard us and they’ll see what can be done and make the changes as quickly as possible, after the initial reveal received so much of a negative response.
Come E3 and even a little post-E3, they were STILL trying to (rudely/vaguely) defend those same BS policies and did little to curb such feelings, which resulted in even more negativity from the fans. Then the pre-order sales results are up and they see that they’re not going to be making nearly as much money off the XB1 as they thought, so only then do they go and change some of the things being most voiced about, thinking it will immediately reverse those lower numbers.
The problem is, like a lot of certain types of people, they seem to think we fans are all gullible idiots who will instantly forgive them and go right back to loving and supporting them and then some because “they listened to the gamers”, as if none of that stuff ever happened.
Unfortunately for them, we didn’t and won’t forget, and I wouldn’t be surprised if this flip flop hurts them as much as it helps. Yes, there are a number of people out there who I’m sure will naively forgive them and pre-order the XB1 stuff now since things seem right back the way they were before, but I’m sure just as many, if not more, or at least a lot more than Microsoft expects, are only MORE skeptical of them now than before.
