Remember how Nintendo was showcasing some of their E3 games at participating Best Buy stores around the country? Well, apparently Microsoft employees have been hired to go to these events and preach about the Xbox One and make comments like "why would you buy a outdated Wii U when the Xbox One is right around the corner?"
However, the employees aren't getting what they hoped for. Most customers just start bashing the Xbox One in response. Seriously, Microsoft, the people attending these Best Buy Wii U events are people who are intimately familiar with the crap you pulled at E3. They ain't takin' your shit.
At first I thought this might just be a case of one really loyal Microsoft employee taking matters into his own hands (especially since the original source was /v/), but reports have come in from numerous Best Buy's around the country that indicate many Microsoft employees have ambushed the demo lines trying to persuade people to switch to the Xbox One.
Since so many reports have come in from all over the country, it's very likely that Microsoft organized these impromptu gatherings with the obvious purpose of trying to mitigate the negativity surrounding the Xbox One and generate positive buzz instead... which obviously isn't working since all the reports are about how Microsoft is trying to sabotage Nintendo.
Maybe should've thought out that plan a little longer, Microsoft...

Since these events are still going on, I'm curious to see if it's happened to any of you who attended.
