You don’t remember things being quite so fucked up when you left.
Here’s a funny one for lunch time – Microsoft has reportedly been sending in Microsoft employees into Nintendo’s Best Buy E3 experience events, which have been set up in Best Buys across the country to allow consumers to play some of the new Nintendo games that have been announced at E3 this year, in an effort to bash the Wii U and to promote the company’s upcoming XBox One. The XBox One has certainly fallen out of favor with hardcore gamers, driving many to flock to the Nintendo Wii U as an alternative.
Numerous reports (along with some damning photos) have come out from those claiming to have withnessed these so called “ambushes” by Microsoft employees themselves. The Microsofties were reportedly asking customers why they were bothering with the Nintendo Wii U when the XBox One was “right around the corner”.
The company is obviously in full tilt damage control after public opinion has left the XBox One’s side following a series of boneheaded business decisions, and this sort of guerrilla marketing isn’t uncommon for companies in Microsoft’s current position. Still, it just leaves sort of a bad taste of desperation in the mouth – and it’s a sad sign of how the mighty have fallen.
