PlayStation 4 Release May Pressure MS to Release Xbox 720 Prematurely

With the upcoming next generation console wars seemingly already brewing up, Joseph DiGrado of RealGamerNewz takes a moment to analyze the potential moves each company is making and what they mean going forward. (Industry, PS4, Xbox 360, Xbox One)

We? Do you realize how crazy your comment makes you look?

*now

Also guys I was kinda joking, but seriously Sony looks to be ready for a return to leadership this gen. They made 3 big errors that would mean death for any other manufacturer last gen that they won't be repeating.

Isn't this what Sony did with PS3 though? I swear that's what had happened.... which was what resulted in 360 being prematurely released and the OBVIOUS hardware faultiness because Microsoft was pressured to release faster....RROD Anyone?.... It was because Microsoft felt pressured and bought it this current generation, and they paid the price of it with the worst god damn hardware flaws in gaming history with the highest failure rate.
sarshelyam  +   1078d ago
Yeah, but you're talking about a year release head-start. No matter how early Microsoft wants to release, it's nothing considering the PS4 is launching this holiday. No way in hell Microsoft is anywhere near ready to combat that by much...if any.
Mounce  +   1078d ago
If they can fuck even after that much time, then am sure they'll fuck something up within the 8-9 months they now have left, lol.

I'd rather wait and see on Microsofts end at their launch after 1-3 months to see for one, how fast it'll get hacked and secondly, how long before a new form of 'RROD' comes about for their new console. Then I shall find a group of like-minded people to laugh with!

Always make the first move. If you make the first move then you set the flow of combat. You should always be acting and never reacting. Says Batman anyway..... and no one argues with Batman.

Chuck Norris can argue with Mr. B
But Chuck doesnt have his own credit card.

What a useless article.
C-Thunder  +   1078d ago
Could be. But I'm guessing MS was planning to release this year. They may have been suprised that the PS4 is releasing this year. I doubt they planned to go head to head with Sony. I wouldn't want to, especially not if they come with a similar price point.
SDF Repellent  +   1078d ago
You can't be serious, this is the first year since the introduction of the the X360 that Microsoft didn't have any game set to be released at the end of the year, same as Sony. Of course the X720 is going to be released this year with a set of launch lineup ready to be unleashed at E3. Microsoft has spy everywhere and know exactly what Nintendo and Sony are up to, just ask the hacker that was caught by the FBI.
C-Thunder  +   1077d ago
Wait, I'm a little confused here. Was it the "could be" that I can't be serious about? I'm just saying its possible, not likely. I do think the PS4 release this year could have been unexpected, only because Xbox has been out a year longer and PS3 still has big releases this year. Given the option, I think MS would have preferred to launch alone.

I don't think they have spy's everywhere. I'm sure they seek out as much information as they can, but you make it sound like they're running their own MI6 or something, with people on the MS payroll working for Sony and Nintendo.

again another article saying MS is in trouble.........huh?y is that? there is nothing solid to go by in terms of what MS is doing and all u keep hearing is how much of a bad position xbox is based on opinion with no facts at all...
Axe99  +   1078d ago
Totally agree - I personally thought the PS4 reveal was exceptional (I've been gaming a long time, and in the context of console reveals, we saw more of almost everything than in any previous reveal to-date).

But.....we know almost nothing about MS' plans, let alone how they're feeling. Prior to Sony's reveal, most people had money on MS launching first, so they're probably some ways along. At least it was correctly titled as an opinion piece, but it's pretty speculative.
TheOneEyedHound  +   1078d ago
I don't if they are going to rush it! Ask Patcher, he knows.
JoeReno  +   1078d ago
Patcher??? Really Patcher??! I didnt a "/s" so i assume you are serious.
TheOneEyedHound  +   1078d ago
Of-course it was sarcasm.

What shape power button will become red from this rush now?

EbeneezerGoode  +   1078d ago
And we all know how perfect MS's consoles are when they 'rush release them'.

If it ever became true then expect RROD for the first 4 years! :P

What a joke article. Sony is stumbling right now. They released a frickin SPEC SHEET and called it a console. Trust me, MS is not feeling any pressure.
PoSTedUP  +   1077d ago
first come first serve. MS knows that. sony could be making MS sweat right about now.
lema008  +   1077d ago
I like how MS is holding there cards close to there chest and waiting for the right time. Sony not showing there console, just a controller, raise a few eyebrows with a lot of people.

I wonder if Sony is taking a page out of Sun Tzu "Art of War" with "Your move first MS" Classic!
