Things Microsoft Should Do Different From Sony

Gamemunition writes: Microsoft needs to do something that Sony failed to do in their event, that is bring more clarity to the event, comprising of objective based presentations. (Microsoft, PS4, Sony, Xbox One)

Microsoft isn't concerned with Sony.

And this is more than a two man race.
Septic  +   1004d ago
I'm sure Microsoft is concerned with Sony, with them being their main competitor after all.

I don't know Microsoft should do differently to Sony; Sony are focusing on the right things and that's what MS need to do, bring the fight to Sony in the areas that matter such as games and features that complement core gaming experiences.

I'm not writing MS off just yet (like many on here are doing) because there is still a lot of potential for the Xbox 720.

It would be stupid of MS not to consider them a competitor. MS might have gained a lot of ground this generation, but they aren't at the top and even if they are, both Nintendo and Sony is prime example of how quick things can change around.

Let's just patiently wait and see what MS has to offer and as always it is about execution, more than "claiming".

microsoft needs to kill bill gates before he kills more innocent people then i may respect them again and consider getting one of their products again because leaving a wild greedy animal like bill gates who wants a billion dead is a BIG PROBLEM .
EDIT : why not search bill gates agenda 21 on youtube

Bill Gates has donated and funded more charitable organizations than anyone in modern popculture. I bet you believe every conspiracy theory you hear. Just because he controls one of the strongest companies in the world, does not make him a greedy murdering psychopath, idiot.

All i see these days is so called "gaming" websites praising, caring about what MS should do. And bashing Sony for not showing the box.....

Fanboy xgaming websites.
MikeMyers  +   1004d ago
Can you quote the article where they are praising Microsoft because I can't see it, thanks.

Anyways Microsoft needs a strong showing and is monitoring the reaction of the PS4 event.
MikeMyers  +   1004d ago
So no quote from the article, thought so. Also why wouldn't they care what Microsoft is doing? If you don't then maybe you shouldn't be here.

@MultiMultiConsoleGamer "And this is more than a two man race. " R u kiddin me. Sony has the best exclusives. All M.S have is that kinect B.S

Can you stop with your constant trolling? Reporting you for spam because you've just used that one bubble to keep spouting the same old nonsense.
aviator189  +   1004d ago
it's so tiring to read through so many comments that keep rehashing the "ms has only kinect" argument as an excuse to dismiss the next xbox before it's even showed off.
DigitalSmoke  +   1004d ago
Its all they did for their comunity in the last 3 years though.
I know i would be pissed.
dboyc310  +   1004d ago
Can you blame them though? I mean yea it's not all about exclusives when you have strong third party support. But you'll be lying to yourself if you don't agree that Microsoft has just been focusing on kinect games and integration with apps. It's not fanboyism when stating the truth. Microsoft has good studio's that should be shelling out a lot more games with potential.
dcbronco  +   1004d ago
Sony poured millions into exclusives on a generation that was already over. I'm not sure where the logic is in that. It may ultimately benefit them in making so many loyal to them through the misconception that only Sony cares about the hardcore. But from a business standpoint, it wasn't that smart for a struggling company. Sony still had their name and only needed to ride out the remained of the PS3 generation. The 100's of millions used on exclusives that didn't sell got them nothing that press conference what the PS4 wouldn't have. Microsoft was smart to ride the 360 until they could make corrections with the 720.
DarkZane  +   1004d ago
I don't like the way he said it, but even though MS doesn't only have Kinect, they have been focusing on it primarily, abandoning the core gamers that made the 360 a success in the process.

If they slow down on Kinect stuff and focus on core gamers, they should be fine.

However, they're likely not gonna do that and that's why a lot of people are switching to Sony.

Going around forums, I see lots of people who were 360 fanboys who suddenly decided to change side and go Sony.

Sony learned their mistakes and the price of the PS4 is definitely not gonna be an issue like the PS3 and will launch earlier or at the same time as the new xbox. With this, Sony will take back a lot of market Microsoft took with the 360 and should assure their dominance over MS for next-gen.

Pack up and leave? Sony was here before MS and will be around after they pack up and leave.

"People were furious because they thought they were going to see the next generation console box and all they got was the controller and the games that the next console from Sony would be able to play."
Seriously?? People were furious that they did see games and controller instead of the actual box???
Dlacy13g  +   1004d ago
I only know one item that we know for sure MS will do that Sony didn't do...and that is actually show a box. Enough blow back from industry people has happened that it would be insanely stupid of them not to.
Jek_Porkins  +   1004d ago
I'd say that Microsoft should show off the next Xbox, I know some people will defend Sony's move of not showing it off, but if they believe in it so much, and think it's the future of gaming, why hide it?

Microsoft should show off their next console, and I wouldn't want them to waste too many surprises as far as games, they will have time for that at E3. Show some solid 3rd party support, maybe show one new IP, but honestly I just want to see the damn thing.

People are going to hate regardless of what they do, they'll no doubt show Kinect 2.0, and people will bash it, but you wont see people here complain that Sony showed off Move and that the PS4 will have a similar camera.

Microsoft will show some social features, and again get bashed, even though Sony and Nintendo both did the same thing.

If anyone remembers the unveiling of the Xbox 360, they spent a lot of time going over the social features of Xbox Live, anyone remember Skater girl? That was pretty awesome and something that needed to be explained, now we have an amazing setup like Xbox Live and the rest is history.

You cant bash on one without the other..
ichimaru  +   1004d ago
I haven't noticed but your right, no one is complaining about siny showIng the eye Toy and move for 20 minutes lol
Jek_Porkins  +   1004d ago
Exactly my point! How can there be such a double standard? That is why, as a Xbox user and fan, not "fanboy", I smiled a bit when I saw Move and a focus on media. It means Microsoft will have some leeway.
clintagious650  +   1004d ago
The difference is even though sony showed one ps move game they also showed new ip's & more games that wasnt for ps move. Something ms needs to take notes on & do them cause seeing all these kinect games does not get me excited for the nextbox.
HalfNerdHalfAmazing  +   1004d ago
It gonna be very interesting to see how the next Xbox controller gonna look like I just hoping it doesn't look anything like the dual shock 4
iamgoatman  +   1004d ago
I imagine it's going to be like the DS4 is to the DS3, same tried and tested shape/design with slight improvements and added features.
