Friendly reminder that Microsoft thought it would be SO AWESOME to have a guy tell a girl "Just let it happen. It’ll be over soon." while beating her in a videogame. On stage, during a press conference for their new game console.
This actually happened. What the fuck, Microsoft. Fuck you.
Edits: First of all, Microsoft has come out stating that the line wasn’t scripted: kotaku.com/the-trash-talk-during-microsofts-conference-was-awful-512330167
Secondly, here is a video of the presentation. The line is said at the 0.33 mark http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LHE0CQK1sZo
That said, it’s still Microsoft’s responsibility what happens during their press conference and as of yet, no apology or statement has been made.
