Aaero Developer Is Tired Of The Backlash To Every Xbox One Announcement

"I’m tired of every announcement having a swath of negative backlash."

Posted By | On 02nd, Aug. 2017

The Xbox One has not had the best time of late as far as perception among the gaming audience goes. There is at least some level of negativity there- however, at least one developer is now tired of every Xbox announcement being met with some level of backlash.

Speaking to This Gen Gaming, Paul Norris of Mad Fellows, the folks who developed Aaero, noted that the console war is ‘hell’, and that he was glad to step away from it personally.

“[I am] excited for the Xbox One X. I understand that people have criticisms but, to be completely honest, I’m tired of every announcement having a swath of negative backlash,” he said. “The guys I play online with (and watch E3 keynotes with) decided long ago that we’d just get excited for stuff that looked cool and if we didn’t like something we’d just let it go. The console wars are hell, man. We’re never going back there! The games they showed off, like Metro, looked like a considerable jump in quality. I just need to save up enough to get one on launch day!”

It is important to note that Aaero is not an Xbox exclusive, so he really does not have any vested interest here- he is just noting his opinion, that console wars can get tiresome. Which is hard to not agree with. While I have a lot of problems with how Xbox (and PlayStation and Nintendo) conduct themselves, too, at the end of the day, I am just in this to play games- arguing about the hardware those games run on seems to me to be missing the point.
