Game Blog Calls for Xbox 360 BoycottFiled under Politics,

chinasoft.jpg

,

On June 16, blog Game Politics called for a ban of the Xbox 360 to protest Microsoft’s decision to support government repression of Internet users in the Republic of China.

,

The site has since launched a poll to get a feel for whether their readers are going to indeed refrain from buying Msoft’s next-gen console. So far, with 75 votes cast, 33 percent are saying they will boycott the X360, while 45 percent won’t and another 21 percent are undecided.

,

It’s good to see someone trying to breath a little substance and real world life into the sometimes inbred, and often stilted world of gaming.

LMAO.  Microsoft deleted the words "freedom" and "democracy" from its Chinese internet portal at the request of the Chinese govt., so we shouldn't buy X360's in protest??!

Interesting actually... But I doubt this will be a factor in 360 sales in North America.

Its all the people's preference of what games the system has, but I'm tired of Sony's no name RPGs and crappy FPSs.  Microsoft has the games I want to play.  FPS, Morrowind, Project Gotham ( blends arcade and sim perfectly, at least the 1st one did -only one I played- ) and it has an HDD built in, which means devs. will accually support the peripheral, not like Sony's dumb HDD.

If you are so into the Xbox, then why are you on Sony's site?

Accually I might only get xbox and put other money towards airsoft.  But just because I like xbox doesn't mean I think ps3 sucks.  PS3 is great, they both are.  Don't lable me as a fanboy for one comment.  But one counsole I cannot stand is revolution, this thing is a joke.
