10 Mistakes That Microsoft Are Already Making With The Next Xbox

"You’d think that Microsoft were safe from making any major missteps with their next gen hardware effort, what with the company disclosing no information on the Xbox 720 whatsoever.

Things don’t always work out that way though, with mere rumours being enough to draw a serious amount of heat over the Xbox brand. Here are ten mistakes that Microsoft are already making regarding their handling of the Xbox 720." (Xbox One)

First off the thing isn't even announced yet, lets take a look:

Online Features: What online features? Always online is rumored to not happen.

Kinect Only: WTF is this? MS have done some boneheaded things but they aren't this stupid.

Kinect Focus: It really depends on how powerful this new device is. The reason Kinect 1 was limited to family games was because the technology was too poor to offer anything greater.

Augmented Reality: I don't really see anything horrible about this.

Used Games Block: Like the PS4, it'll be up to the publisher.

Late to the Party: It's releasing this year. The announcement means nothing, devs have known about it for a while.

Manufacturing Delays: The only really big problem I see. Hopefully this doesn't affect the quality of the system.

Little Build Up: Judging by Surface, Windows 8, and Kinect it'll have 10x the advertising budget as the PS4. (PS4's is $100 million, Windows 8 has $1 billion+)

Fewer Big Exclusives: We haven't seen any as the thing hasn't been announced yet.

Being Secretive: Do you remember the phrase "we don't comment on rumor and speculation"? There'll be a massive blowout starting 5/21.

The title should be

10 Mistakes That Microsoft May Be Making With The Next Xbox

since most of the items on the list are just rumors, and in most cases there are different versions of the rumor that point in opposite directions.

lets see what the have first.
the only mistake might be planing the reveal so close to E3 might as well wait another week.
Crazay  +   519d ago
Yep. I lost interest when I saw the pay per click 10 page article. Moving along now.

N4G "Journalist's" are severely misguided.
RuleofOne343  +   519d ago
More hearsay, speculation, unsubstantial based rumours until the folks at MS say something all lame articles should never be approved.

Really, all I care about are the games. First party non kinekt games. NON-kinekt games. No kinekt. Not even once. You never go full-retard.

Chalk it up to a slow news day gents... E3 cant get here fast enough. Im really trying to stay away from these articles and just enjoy the plethora of great games coming out now.

@Leviathan

All I care about is the use of the English language so the majority of users on this website can read your comment. After attempting to read your comment, I think we need to get a Kickstarter together so you can purchase Rosetta Stone so you can properly comment on this website.

I'll just say this: MS hasn't announced and said nothing about the nexBox.

Story quality-WTF?
Liked this Website? No.

How did piece of cr*p article even get approved? 10 mistakes Microsoft is ALREADY making?? Most of those 10 mistakes aren't even confirmed, they are rumors! How can you assume MS is making a mistake for something that hasnt been even announced or confirmed? This clearly is THE most idiotic article I ever read on here. Do yourself a favor and stop making judgements on something that doesnt exist yet and come back when it really does.
