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.
