Microsoft sends staff to Wii U events to sway gamers for Xbox One

There were some rumors that Microsoft sent employees to Wii U Best Buy events during E3 week, where they tried to persuade potential Wii U owners to switch and pre-order the Xbox One instead.

Now those rumors have been confirmed, as the video evidence above shows. A Microsoft employee was spotted at a Wii U event at Best Buy, talking about the Xbox One and why they should chose it instead. It’s quite pathetic.

Microsoft has been ridiculed over the past week for its Xbox One, a $500 console that doesn’t support used games, has to be connected at all times to the Internet, and is noticeably less powerful than its main competitor, the PlayStation 4.
