Microsoft Doesn’t Get it: Uses Sarcastic Tweet To Promote Xbox One Thinking it’s Serious

on May 21, 2013 4:27 PM

During and after the Xbox One presentation Microsoft’s social media accounts started showing what they perceived as a positive reaction to the reveal of the new console. One of those outings on Twitter is especially hilarious:

Featured is a tweet from GameSpot’s writer Carolyn Petit, that was obviously being completely sarcastic about the presentation’s excessive focus on TV instead of games. Looks like someone at Microsoft didn’t notice.

Carolyn’s followed with a brief but clever comment, and I’ll leave it here for the posterity:

I don’t know if it’s horrible or glorious myself, Carolyn, but it sure made us smile (or roll on the floor laughing). Thank you.

Definitely a multi-platform gamer, he still holds the old dear PC nearest to his heart, while not disregarding any console on the market. RPGs (of any nationality) and MMORPGs are his daily bread, but he enjoys almost every other genre, prominently racing simulators, action and sandbox games. He is also one of the few surviving fans of the flight simulator genre on Earth.
