Xbox players heart drones. Seriously.
Microsoft teamed up with the creators of Halo 4 to livestream the debates with interactive polling. By participating and watching the debates, you can earn exclusive armor for your Halo avatar. Cool promotion, right?
About that…
The photo above from Kotaku demonstrates just how many Xbox users heart the drones. Read the comments if you really want to lose faith in humanity. 
Kotaku has a possible explanation posted in the form of a black and white photo. My husband told me it’s from Modern Warfare 3.

Now, I think gamers are smarter than that, but it IS eerie.

    If Halo4 players are representative of humanity, we’re all well & truly fu**ed :( #drones #debate @godelnoodle

  9. self-styled-iconoclast said: Hell, why even have a paid military when kids would line the block for a chance to fly a drone from their xbox? Hell, they’d probably even pay to do it.
