[Update] OnLive is for babies, so says fan page
Fans are outraged by some comments from an fan page representative on Facebook. After a wall post stating "One more day..........not long now folks!" in regards to the release date of Spider-Man: Edge of Time, it quickly devolved into a debate about the legitimacy of gamers who use the OnLive service. Someone must have asked why this game wasn't going to make to the platform and the fan page response went a little something like this:
The original posts have now been deleted. While this was articulated rather nicely, the implication that anyone using a cloud-based gaming service is not legit seems rather crass. While I admit that the techonology itself is still in it's infancy, there are implications that it may have legs or even become a standard in the future.
I think the biggest mistake was responding to a troll who commented "OnLive dominating. Lmao. Best joke so far" with, "We were rather tickled ourselves." Nice job there Facebook guy, I am sure that isn't pissing off a sub-section of your Internet fan base.
We have reached out to Activision for comment.
you know it's gotta be a little bit embarrassing when some anonymous guy manages to be the first person to make a web page on your IP, at least have your official web page be a little more popular than a fan page
Thats awesome, Can i haz more?
Just find it funny how people would believe something like this. Company's don't want to alienate anybody. Believe me no company is that stupid.
i doubt there are any fans of edge of time that they would make a facebook page about it
activision seriously likes to dig themselves into there own holes don't they
As if Activision hasn't already alienated half of the world's population yet...
Way to burn bridges, Activision...
i bet it was kotick, either way blame it on kotick
This guy deserves to be fired.
This is some funny shit!
But they didn't really say Babies, did they? It's a rather misleading headline, even if what they did was still a dick move.
