    Microsoft Apologies for Comments during E3 KI Demo

    I didn't even catch this at the time, but it does say something about how Microsoft is being seen by the mainstream media.

    People are getting offended by nothing lol. I don't see why people needed to purposefully interpret it like that and assume this was MS's intentions. I never even saw it as a rape joke. The oversensitivity lol

    Edit: Nvm. I just saw the "stick" joke. Ignore what I just said lol.

    I didn't think it was a big deal. People are so sensitive.

    This is like the whole Tomb Raider rape-gate scandal. Much ado about nothing.

    personally im not offended by anything... i think rape jokes, retard jokes and 9/11 jokes can be quite funny under the right joke. (south park handles these jokes pretty much flawlessly, and SP is pretty much just accepted as normal these days.)

    But MS deserves the backlash its getting, because.... SCRIPTED TRASH TALK is $#@!ing retarded!

    Scripted talk is trash in general.

    But, yeah. . . stop being sensitive world.
    I talk to myself because I'm the only one whose answers I accept.

    Hey guys, go make a rape joke to your coworker and see how much longer you're still employed. People shouldn't be offended at rape jokes? People are offended at offensive jokes and workplace laws are in place to stop people from treating their coworkers that way. I'm pretty sure that the both of them work for MS at that.

    and this is the problem with the world today, soon someone won't even be able to fart in public without lawsuits or it making headlines. grow up, and quit being a crybaby. i didn't see or hear anything to do with rape in this video.

    This is true. It's being may a bigger deal than it should be. But on stage, it's still always better to just use better etiquette and keep it as PG as you can for professionalism's sake.

    I watched it and to be fair it was game face talk they were in the KI world and he was laying the smackdown on her nothing more than that.

    It wasn't as bad as the article makes out but still I would say it is inappropriate language to use to demonstrate to the world your game.
    Also if anyone saw it the lady gave the guy an arse whooping in the second round.
