Becareful, some people here will report you for derailing the thread.

They should do away with the report button here and make people discuss and debate things like adults.



Fucking pussies.

Cannot even get food from the supermarket. Video games are the last thing on my mind right now.
If you're able to, go in the morning at opening time. I went to Morrisons yesterday and the shelves were like a warzone had hit them. Went this morning at 7am, all the shelves fully stocked.

Lol I love how any tweet, interview or announcement made by Phil Spencer triggers console warring responses.

Guy can’t take a shit without someone saying it’s for PR purposes and even If it’s refuted they are apparently “xbois” which is some low quality shit posting.
Phil could tweet tomorrow that Microsoft ensured world peace and cured cancer and some people would moan about job cuts in the pharmaceutical and weapons industry. Some companies are evil and some are the knight in shining armor.

Why? Can't you leave your house?

I can, but I currently stay at home as much as possible.

If you're able to, go in the morning at opening time. I went to Morrisons yesterday and the shelves were like a warzone had hit them. Went this morning at 7am, all the shelves fully stocked.

I went shortly after its opening, but the vast majority of shelves of vegtables, meat, and even pre-cooked food were empty. Our minister already told people during a press conference that hoarding food isn't necessary, but some people just cannot help themselves appearantly.

Although indeed heartening, if you're working from home already, be careful about sharing this on social media in case your boss sees it.

(I know you shouldn't be friends with your boss on social media, fuck, you shouldn't even be on social media at all.)

Pretty shitty of Phil to use the coranavirus to score PR points.

What kind of statement is that even? Using "gaming" as a way of staying connected? Nobody needs gaming to stay connected. If you want to stay connected, just call and message people.

If anything, gaming is just a way of passing time during this crisis.

At least read the thread first.

Funny how quick people are to bad mouth a tweet without any product name in it at all. Then watch other tweets promote a game they made and not say anything. Gaf at its finest, never change lol

If am honest it is a serious good time to promote stay at home stuff I mean we have to do something while we are there right?
