Microsoft is ignorant.

Seriously. Microsoft claims games like Call of Duty, Elder Scrolls:V Skyrim are best played on the Xbox 360, while it's a fact that it's best played on the PC. (Not saying the X360 Version is terrible) But, on almost every CoD trailer, and Skyrim trailer there's only the X360/LIVE logo, while it's clearly those games are available on on the PC and PS3. Discuss how Microsoft is ignorant regarding their advertisements.

  • They're not ignorant, they're just using marketing techniques to compete in the industry.

  • Opinions are not facts I for one prefer to have XBL and will turn on the X-box to use live while I play with my friends if we are on other systems.

  • All I could think of when I saw the title was the Michael Jackson South Park episode. "Stop, that's ignorant!"

  • Skyrim and CoD for the Xbox are superior to their PS3 versions, at least when it comes to their DLC always being released like a month earlier on the Xbox. I think the Xbox versions also have less bugs.

When laundry detergent A says it's the best one on the market when clearly it couldn't be because laundry detergent B just said in the last commercial that IT was the best one! I mean the nerve of some people trying to sell there product anyway they can, it's not like YOU should look into both detergents, do some research and figure out which one is the best for you...that's WAAAAY too much work.[/quote] The only solution is to mix both detergents together.

  • It's funny that something like that bothers you, when all commercials feed you lofty statements and arguments without any justification or reasoning. There's not enough time in the advert to do those things you see.

  • I don't think it's the fact that they're ignorant, but mostly because they have an ulterior motive. That is, they want you to buy their consoles.

  • [quote][b]Posted by:[/b] Toad117 Skyrim does run on the 360 better than the PS3, so there is truth to that statement. I don't know about the other games, however. In terms of advertisement, Sony runs exclusive ads for third-party developers. Ever seen the AC3 commercial for the PS3? [/quote]Of course it'll run better with all the graphics turned down

  • "Hey guys, there is this cool game that's out right now, instead of telling you to get it on the biggest game playing machine out right now, we're going to ask you to buy it on this other thing not owned by us called Steam on the PC, and you'll probably pirate it anyway." - What the OP thinks Microsoft should say.

  • Of course Microsoft (the creator of the Xbox) is going to claim that games are best played on their system.
