Lisa Su - you can find consoles, you are just not willing to pay for them!

    Bit of a hot take that, no? AMD doesnt set the retail prices of the consoles and if consoles are there then supply is there. Console gouging is completely out of AMDs control.

    Translation: Hardware unboxed are butthurt about something? :p

    AMD don't set the price of consoles so how can they falsely advertise it?

    On the actual call, it's clearly a joke comment, if in poor taste, between two people who have had discussions on this previously. It's a none issue that's being taken out of context to serve a point. Which is no surprise coming from Twitter.

    As much as I have no doubt Lisa Su nor any other CEO gives a single crap about consumers... this is taken out of context. A bit disappointing from Hardware Unboxed, it wasn't a response to the full question, it was a clearly a joke from when he said "I'm pretty cheap" and they both laugh, she gives a real answer after he's finished the question. Did they not even bother to listen to the audio before tweeting that out?

    It is still a bad take on what she said in this climate.

    Edit:- as almost always it will be taken out of context Amd never learn, how many times have they done this.

    Trashy tweet. I read the full context of this specially presented selection of words and it's nothing like the tweet suggests.

    Was gonna say this was taken out of context, if you look at the twitter post someone posts the conversion beforehand as well.

    She's right though? Everything is available provided you have the money to for it.

    I took it as you can't buy consoles at RRP because they've all been scalped like cards? Which is true, not quite sure what the point of this selective tweet is tbh.

    Of course not that would totally destroy the clickbaity-ness of it.

    Very typical of Steve to get his knickers in a twist over something he conflated in to something its not.

    The exact quote was:

    John Pitzer
    A year ago virtually i couldn't find an XBox or a Play Station, where a year later i still can't find them pretty cheap....

    Before he could finish that sentence Lisa Su had already interrupted him to say:

    "you can find them you're just not willing to pay for it"

    This was a response that Lisa didn't even think about, it was a friendly jibe at John to joke "you're just not willing to pay for it" period. not because he isn't willing to pay the inflated prices, Lisa didn't even hear that before she responded, at worst it was unfortunate timing on Lisa's part and nothing more. It was not a dig at him for not wanting to pay the inflated prices.

    Steve is not so stupid that he doesn't realise this, he knows, but angry man needs to twist it so he can rage on Twitter like everyother angry keyboard warrior on that cancerous platform.

    Regardless of the intention, it does lack empathy. AMD's products have been a disaster this year I think. Sure, the company has made mega-bucks on console hardware, but they have had a year of basically paper launches of every other product.

    Regardless of the twitter post, have AMD openly discussed the supply shortages? No. Have they openly and transparently discussed the GPU pricing disasters? No. Its poor customer care.

    What they gonna do, make themselves or their partners special targets for abuse by mentioning any detail which could be easily taken out of context.

    And for what. End of the day they're not in a position to guarantee anything about better supply or guarantee lower prices which is the only thing customers want to hear.

    He is known for being a ruthless CEO whereas a select few on here think AMD can do no wrong, the underdog ad nauseam, you're probably one of them :p
