Things must really kicking along in the world of Xbone. Why, this week, I received a presser imploring me to get excited about a system update that lets me view the storage space on my machine. Plus, the battery power indicator is back!
No, I’m not making this up – those are literally the words that appear in the email. And Xbone is only three months old!
Back in my day, there was something new and exciting to play almost every week. Halo, Azurik, Oblivion, Blinx, Gears of War, Viva Pinata… It wasn’t always good, I’ll grant (good lord some of it was downright awful), but there was always something to play.
This thing reads like the internal comms newsletter of a desperately joyless place. I’ve seen some pretty bad press releases in my time, but this one may take the cake.
