Ballmer apology: “I confused the issue with my poorly chosen words”

Monday, 22nd June 2009 11:11 GMT By Mike


Microsoft’s Steve Ballmer has apologised for his comments at the The Executive’s Club of Chicago last week claiming that a new 360 SKU would be release in 2010.

“I confused the issue with my poorly chosen words,” he said in a statement to IGN. “There is no news in my comments. Things are as reported after E3. Sorry.”

It has been rumoured that a more powerful and perhaps Natal-integrated Xbox 360 was on the way. We can now hopefully lay those finally to rest.

    Not often you get the big boss to apologise. Someone must have some leverage. ;)

    He appears to be gagging on the invisible man, there. Punishment indeed.

    I love pictures of Ballmer, he always looks like a bullying psychopath ^____^

    I think that’s because… he probably is a bullying psychopath!

    Yeah, I’ve read a fair bit that would support Blerk’s statement there. :)

    *hands you a tinfoil hat*

    The guy obviously just worded his remarks badly the other day, and apologised for it. Don’t read into it so much.

    I have plenty of tinfoil hats thank you. I’ve even learnt to build them into other hats for super fashion goodness.

    On a more serious note… see the ;) ? That means it’s a joke.

    If somebody actually makes a tinfoil hat and auctions it on eBay, I’ll give them a whole twenty pee. Which they might then use to start up their very own tinfoil hat manufacturing industry.

    And why stop at hats? The world is crying out for a tinfoil waistcoat, preferably complemented by some tinfoil jodhpurs.

    PS. Does this mean I have to send Lindsay Lohan twenty pee?
