    Official Xbox.com forum empty = battle weary?

    http://forums.xbox.com/xbox_forums/x...e/default.aspx

    Went lurking at the Xbox One section but no one is home. Looks shutdown. Dont know when it happened but they must have gotten tired of trying to moderate a flame fest.

    There's recent activity... but I think most forum goers are at other sites.

    The Official Xbox forums have always been slow, or at least not nearly as busy as most internet forums.

    IGN gimped all the TXB mods somehow, or $#@! on them - so they left. Let the site implode on itself... it is now overrun almost 100% by bots

    That makes it even funnier. It was always strange how IGN made a site for a specific console, and not the others. That place was a fanboy brewing pot. Adds support to the suspicion that IGN was being paid off by Microsoft for the site and the checks stopped coming in.

    I see you haven't fixed your comprehension issue yet. TXB was a fan site created before the original xbox launched. About a year later it merged with another xbox forum. A few years after that it was bought out by ign, and a few years after that ign was bought by another company. In 2010 ign got rid of all the txb staff which eliminated any txb generate content (like news and reviews). That killed off most of the website traffic.

    In 2012 ign further let go of the site turning a nearly dead site into a cesspool for bots and spam, finally killing off txb for good.

    Perhaps you should do some proper research before opening your mouth and commenting on things.

    And for the record, what you said about TXB could apply to any console centric website, including this one.

    Wait, you think this place has been bought and run by MS?

    TIL.

    Regardless of the minute details, that site is obviously not sponsored anymore, otherwise somebody would care. Just never saw a site implode like that. Go off line, go dead, other things, but not just cutting off forum members with a wide open bot barrage. It's like a big FU to the flaming fanboys that used to make that site froth and boil. Just another chapter in the Interwebz history.

    There wasn't any point in IGN buying the site. So it isn't surprising they fired the staff and let the site stagnate and decay, especially when it would compete against ign's website and forums.

    I dunno. With the Xbox One, MS has taken just about every possible wrong step a company could with a console, and then invented some new ways while they were at it.

    It's really not hard to make a case that the fanbase isn't anywhere near what it once was. Certainly nothing like how things were when the first XBox was around much less when the 360 was coming out.
