As a company, you strive to be a trending topic on Twitter and sometimes you even go so far as to pay for that promoted service. However, when Microsoft introduced the #XboxMemories this morning prior to the Xbox One reveal event, I doubt they thought it would lead to such a negative experience.
Of course, gamers took this as an opportunity to make true, sarcastic tweets about the negative experiences they’ve had on the Xbox over the years. We’ve compiled our five favorite tweets below and hopefully you can include your favorites in the comment section below.
#XboxMemories Coming home after Gears 2 shipped and watching the “searching for game” icon endlessly spin as it failed to matchmake.

Cliff is no stranger to creating great discussions with his opinions ever since leaving Epic Games. However, this time around, he showed a bit of humility when discussing the epic failure that was Gears 2 multiplayer. He’s always regretted including a multiplayer aspect to the game and that’s no surprise. Oddly enough, Gears has turned into a solid multiplayer community and it has this failing to thank for that.
#xboxmemories we still are supposed to pay for a service that should be free, namely playing with your friends over the internet

Microsoft has always caught flak for charging for online play and it’s no surprise that this is someone’s Xbox Memory. We noticed that Xbox Live pricing wasn’t discussed today at the XBone reveal, but it will be at E3, we’d imagine. Either way, Microsoft needs to think about cutting this cost back or offering a specialized tier for those who just want to play online games and not all of the other crap.
#XboxMemories When my live account got hacked and it took MS over six months to get it back.

This is a real gem due to all of the flak Sony took over the PSN fiasco. Sure, Sony deserved it, but when Microsoft had people getting screwed left and right with hacked accounts and the FIFA epidemic (people losing entire checking accounts through PayPal from this), it just shows how careful you should be with the information you supply online.
