This statement about all the stuff MS is trying to do to make their system look better than what it is reminded me of something. I was thinking today how most of this bad publicity may have the potential to be washed aside once the celebs start to get their FREE xbone's and promote them, especially once it get closer to the holiday season. People taking pics of celebs playing them. Or tweeting about how awesome the xbone is and then some people might start to think to themselves 'maybe it's not as bad as I thought' because for whatever reason celebs have some pull with fans. But I would expect sony to have it's own celeb promotions as well.
I don't think Justin Bieber playing XBone will help them.
