Should go without saying, and yet its been said many, many times.

Seriously, what are MS waiting for?

It's like they want PS4 to have all the attention and pre-orders to itself.
Moonman  +   577d ago
They ae obviously shuffling around with heir pants around their ankles! PS4 caught them totally off guard.

"PS4 caught them totally off guard."

They have had over ten years to build up their ability to design console hardware that is as powerful, cost efficient, and reliable as Sony. They didn't.

They have had over then years to build up their first party exclusive developers that can compete with Nintendo and Sony. They have done just the opposite and spent most of last gen closing down their main core first party developers or failing to buy major Xbox exclusive third party devs like Bioware or Bizarre.

Instead they have rushed out defective and underpowered console hardware a year early last gen and still ended up in last place worldwide this gen even with the millions of extra consoles they sold due to the RRoD fiasco.

Microsoft actually thinks they are going to turn the Xbox into a Wii type success despite their EyeToy clone Kinect being the single most hated thing in all of gaming.

Microsoft has no one to blame but themselves.

The massive failure of Microsoft's last three E3s is exactly what is going to be revealed shortly:

> 75 percent Kinect garbage. Faked demos being acted out by performers pretending on stage. 'Concept demos' of things that will never actually ship

> 10 percent the same old Halo, Gears, Forza stuff with an addition or two

> 15 percent PC/multiplatform games that Microsoft tries to pretend are Xbox exclusives. And more stupid 'exclusive DLC'.

Anyone who is expecting anything else from Microsoft is just once again setting themselves up for massive disappointment.

If Microsoft ended up in last place this gen with a year extra sales and the millions of extra console due to the RRoD fiasco and other Xbox 360 hardware problems that plagued the system - just imagine how badly they are going to do this gen.

Karma's a total bitch, isn't it. Guess M$ should start writing that list.

Just because Microsoft hasn't announced anything yet, they are now Doomed? When have we heard this before on N4G?

Doomed should be used on Compnies that are loossing billions upon billions every quarter, not companies that are raking in billions. Microsoft don't need to do anything until the X720 is ready to be shown.

@rl_Pearson They are not in last place dude. They are second place, Sony is the one in last place. Sony gave SHIPPED numbers, While Microsoft gave Sold. According to the sold numbers sony is still in last place but not by much and i expect that gap to widen since the 360 has been the top selling console every month for more then a year. It is expected to surpass the Wii in the coming years.

360 Units SOLD! as of February 2013: 76 million! http://en.m.wikipedia.org/w...

PS3 units SOLd! As of november 2012: 70 Million! With an estimate of 77 million
http://en.m.wikipedia.org/w...

now obviously it could not have achieved that estimate since it kept getting outsold by the 360. And it would be impossible to sell 7 million consoles in 3 months.

MS's E3s have been a failure?

They've sold 24 million Kinects.

Give me that kind of failure any fucking day!
Godmars290  +   577d ago
@GusBricker:

Kinect IS a failure if you're looking more from it than kid or party games.

Honestly, how many times does it have to be said that success for a company does not equate to success for the consumer. A game or add on can sell in the millions and still rate low, which only means millions of people got jipped.
GusBricker  +   577d ago
It may be a failure to you, but not to MS. I don't particularly have much use for it either, but you can't deny it's been a success.
Godmars290  +   577d ago
@GusBricker:

FFS: I don't know what's worse: that I literally have to repeat myself or that you're basically agreeing with me. Admitting that for you Kinect has no value, is not a success, as you repeat yourself.

It matters f**k-all if MS makes billions off the damn thing, is in every other home on the planet and gives you crowing rights in a comment section like this, if you're the one person who doesn't like their games, it means nothing.
Emzx99  +   577d ago
Yes because if the announcements are say 2 months apart for some odd reason the PS4 would be the only thing that matters, and nobody would notice the 720 being announced. Stupid fanboys on this site. Shall I even mention how the PS3 released a year after the 360 and is doing just fine? Idiot.
GalacticEmpire  +   577d ago
What? I didn't even say that, no need for the personal attack.

I dont think it works that way this early into the nextgen. Those who want PS4 are Core ps3 gamers and there ain't nothing going to stop them from getting it, even if the 720 is better.Same goes for core Xbox gamers with the 720.

I disagree. If MS presents a very casual system, with Kinect being shoved down your throat. Gamers will be jumping ship.
.
Likewise had PS4 been a very casual focus, people would be jumping that ship. Thankfully PS4 is looking to be a very gamer focused console. (What a novel idea). All that is left is PRICE.
kingmushroom  +   577d ago
which is not a bad thing x)

Takes planning. You can't just impulse reveal.
AngelicIceDiamond  +   577d ago
MS is still silent. If rumors are true about a late April announcement then then MS will be silent for a while.

As I said before MS needs to say something at GDC announce the console, announce the used games rumors, the power of the console and deny or confirm other rumors floatin around.

MS can at the very LEAST do that. The media and fans are getting annoyed at MS silence, I am to.

But this silence could mean a killer showing when its all said and done, Who knows.

Hmm Microsofts silence worries me because i have a feeling that most of the negative rumors about the 720 are true.

Seriously if the parasite (Bioshock 2) forces you to use Kinect then the console is doomed.
Gildarts  +   577d ago
It doesn't force you to use Kinect. It forces you to connect it. Big difference.
Dlacy13g  +   577d ago
LOL....Doooom!!!! Seriously funny stuff in this comment thread
GreenRanger  +   577d ago
It's obvious that Microsoft aren't taking gaming as serious these days as they did when they entered gaming at first.
HappyWithOneBubble  +   577d ago
I think MS never cared about gaming. They just wanted to beat Sony and brag about it. No American company wants a Japan company to beat them.
kingmushroom  +   577d ago
they never beat Sony

RuleofOne343  +   577d ago
They really don't have to do much other than wait till their ready to show, cause the developer's already have kits that can have items + or -. besides it good theatre to drag out a scene & then spook the audience out of their seat while blowing their minds with a good twist . I say do what u needs to get done then show your hand , screw the peanut gallery of haters & basement dwellers. .
