Albert Penello: Xbox One’s Situation Is So ‘Drastically Overblown’
“Things are nowhere near as dire or dramatic or exciting as everyone would like to believe”
With the launch of the Xbox One fast approach, rumors of last minute development issues with the console have been running rampant across the internet. Xbox One’s director of product planning, Albert Penello addressed these rumors earlier today on Reddit in the Xbox One subreddit.
“There is a really bizarre phenomenon going on right now where the frenzy for news, drama, and behind-the-scenes dealings is clouding logic and reason,” he wrote.
“There is nothing going on behind the scenes nearly as interesting as everyone would like to believe. We are a month away from launch, and people are working hard to finalize the last of the bugs. There are still a lot things left to be done. We’re crunching and I’m sure Sony’s crunching too.
“I know people are excited. I’m sorry but things are nowhere near as dire or dramatic or exciting as everyone would like to believe. That’s why I’m not commenting on every single random rumor that comes along, because everything I see is so drastically overblown vs. reality.”
