Dear Mr Head OF All Things Xbox,
I cannot fail to notice that something is happening on the 21st May 2013. Every time I turn on my Xbox I am reminded of it. Has it got something to do with your new console perhaps?
First things first, it seems this little shindig of yours is happening online on the 21st at 6pm. I’m terribly sorry but I’ll not be able to make it, you see I have a job. It’s what gives me the money to buy the games for my Xbox which gives me entertainment after I come back from my job. In the grand scheme of things in your big industry my job might not be very important but I kinda need it to exist, so you’ll have to accept my apologies. Perhaps your “New generation” does not include oldies like me who have supported you for years!
Secondly, I’m all excited for you that you are releasing a new console, I bet you are very happy. Me, I’m very sad because my aforementioned job doesn’t pay very much money. I couldn’t tell you the last time I got a payrise. Necessities like food, cleaning products etc all sadly come before gaming, hence why I am sad. I’m not going to be able to afford your shiny new console, not for a long time anyway, actually probably around the time you release the next one. Am I going to be penalized for this? Will you stop supporting the console I can afford and no longer make games for it?
I know most of the gaming community are on the edge of their seats waiting to find out all about your next installment. I’m thinking back to the reason why I made the move to Xbox in the first place, Sony’s introduction of the PS3 and abandoment of the PS2, hefty price tag, non backwards compatibility and new games only being released for the newer console. I’m a little worried you’re about to drive your car down the same road, which in turn might make me want to drive mine off a cliff!
I guess time will tell and I should probably get on with the housework rather than sending you letters full of speculation. Good luck for that thing on Tuesday, emm what was it again??
Miss Skint and Not as Excitied as Everyone Else
