Pathetic.

Anyone can be paid to do anything


It's a sad truth =\ MS pays off everyone. Even people on YouTube. It's disgusting.

Why would Microsoft pay off Amazon? It is already selling well enough and supposedly it will not be exclusive beyond this first game. My bet is the ones that got 1 or 2 stars because the reviewer said COD with mechs 1 out of 5 were taken down because someone complained or downvoted it. If it is legit then Amazon will look at it and re-post it down the line.

If enough people complain about a review though they will look at it. While they are looking at it, it is taken down.

I dont see this as some big conspiracy. Nobody goes to look at Amazon reviews when purchasing a video game anyway.

Ok let's start with some facts:

About 20 users stating their blatantly biased reviews were removed (not titanfall related)

Here is a Forbes article with Amazon responding to emails about reviews getting removed

Should I go on?

Putting aside the ignorance of both sets of fanboys..

Titanfall is still a new product and the best way to sell more of it is to remove the reviews that give it a 5/10 or lower especially within the first month of release. Not about them being biased or 'paid off' or whatever delusions you have to tell yourself.

They are obviously removing them because they don't contribute to the overall product. 1 negative review for no reason will probably get over looked. But if you have 50 0/10 reviews saying "lol 792p what is this 2001?" Then yes something needs to be done

How would you like if you were running a online business selling software and you're ratings got plummeted on your merchandise by trolls saying "lol you ain't Microsoft"

I'm sure you would be singing a different tune

They've removed more 5 out of 5 ratings than they have 1 out of 5. But dont let the facts get in the way of a fanboy circle jerk.
