Next-Gen Xbox Reveal: Pachter – ‘We’ll Get The Same Thing We Got At The Sony Event’

X360: Microsoft’s May event is primed to show off a ‘new generation’ Xbox but analyst Michael Pachter believes we’ll get an event similar to Sony’s, but we will get to see the console this time. (Microsoft, Xbox One)

I agree,the event will be based around hardware and features.
Dailynch  +   524d ago
I do hope we at least get to see the thing this time and not just the controller. Sony's event was exciting, but not seeing the machine itself was a huge mistake.

@paranoid1971
He never said they buy them for the way they look. Showing a console at its own reveal will show the company is in a healthy position to talk about it and then launch it when promised. It shows it's a well thought out plan/hardware/strategy/service . Boasting and blustering what it will be or what it will possibly do when they are done brain storming it, seeming like a knee-jerk reaction is something even average Joe can pick up on and worry a bit.

You don't walk on stage boasting about Gaikai and then in the same speech tell the world you don't know how it's going to work and it's not even finished, out on stage saying this is what it could do if we work on that.

It's not so much the lack showing hardware at a *console reveal* giving insight on Sony but the changed specs, all Sony's devs were old specs up until the desperate reveal after Sony caught wind of what MSFT might be up to.

They only showed and talked about the Controller and not the hardware core services and camera because that is all Sony had ready due to the forced desperate reveal move to try and kill what they knew was coming from MSFT

#deal with it

I always thought the console was made for its performance abilities. If it looks like a turd, hide it in a cabinet.

That being said, the design showing inputs, and how effective the heat dissipation is implemented in the design are important.

I'd like to see some more durability this generation.
Minato-Namikaze  +   524d ago
Because the system needs to match your drapes, or bedding? It'll be a black box that you stick under the entertainment system and look at every so often. Had this been E3 and they didnt show the console then i'd say it was a misstep.
Computersaysno  +   524d ago
If the next Xbox is slower than PS4 and Microsoft know it is, they won't go into a technical run down. They will avoid it.

They won't want to get into a horsepower battle in the press, if they know they are going to lose.

Smart PR is to focus on your own strengths and your own aims. Draw your own battle lines, fight the competition where you choose and prefer, pick your own battles.

Microsoft will surely emphasise their online features with Xbox live and connectivity. They will go on and on about social gaming and possibly Kinect 2.0, online and offline social gaming with family and friends.

They are gonna pitch this console more mainstream, try and cast the net to casuals and the core by showing varying titles in those molds.

Most casuals don't want to hear half an hour hardware technical breakdown, even if the core probably does.

I find that funny considering that at E3 2005 when sony announced tge ps3
They showed a box mock up of the system, but nothing was functional. Not even the hardware, it was a year and a half away from release, not like the PS4 which is at latest 10 months away, and We got Target CGI renders not running on actual hardware and people loved it.

but Sony has a reveal for the PS4 and they Show Actual interfaces, Live Gameplay Demos running on prototype hardware (Not CGI Targets) and a list of confirmed hardware specs and a working functional controller and camera people complain because they didn't see a shell of the console hardware?

We got more than we ever got with the PS4 reveal that E32005 with Sony. If you'd rather an empty box with nothing in it and a bunch of CGI target renders than knowing what the system can do and demonstrations of what the innards of the box can do then have at it.

To those saying its no big deal Sony didnt show off the actual console... while I agree ultimately it may not matter long term it was very out of the ordinary.

It's called marketing, and part of it is to make it "real", as instant gratification as possible and obtainable.

Having a console certainly helps, but let's face it, only the hardcore of the hardcore watches this sort of thing.

Everyone else sort of listens and finds out probably way after the console is launched.

It was a huge mistake to not show the PS4 to people who don't want it anyway, apparently.

@Greenpowerz - Yeah Sony was afraid of what MS was doing... meanwhile the majority of the rumors about what MS is doing favor Sony. That makes all kinds of sense. lol

Still don't get people who complain about Ps4 form factor not being shown.

It's like they'll have to buy the console without knowing how it looks. At worst you'll see it before you buy the console. However, you will not know a shred about PS4's functionality by seeing how it looks. What the box does is more important to know, and that's what Sony gave us during and after the reveal.
Divine  +   524d ago

maniacmayhem  +   524d ago
Lol, the new buzz word is "symmetrical". The analog sticks on the 360 pad are perfectly placed. In most of the games you would use the left analog to control the character and use the right to control the camera. It's rare you would use both at the same time for a long period of gameplay.

So your symmetrical argument that has just been a recent buzz term here on N4G doesn't really hold weight.

"... I have big hands so I keep hitting my thumbs together..."

FunkMacNasty  +   524d ago
@minato-namikaze

The asymetrical analogue sticks are IMO the best feature about the 360 controller. I have large hands and when I play on playstation, my thumbs always tend to smash into each other when playing TPS/FPS games. I also think the triggers feel more "weighted" and in general the control has a nice chunky feel in my hands.. overall very ergonimic.

Edit: @ Falaut - lol.. what so stupid about having large hands!? Everyone's body is different, that's why there are diferent sized clothes, shoes, etc.. I have the same issue with the DS3 that Knightcrawler does.

@ playstation4gamer - so this is news.. someone who has "playstation" in their username doesn't like the xbox controller and doesn't know anyone else who does either. Shocking.

Good_Guy_Jamal  +   524d ago
Symmetrical huh? When I play Forza 4 my left thumb is up at the left analogue and my right thumb is up at the face buttons. Symmetry. This is true for all other racing games, fighting games, sports games, side scrolling games, and hack n slash games. The only time my thumbs aren't in symmetry is when I play shooters. Can you say the same about the DS3? In most games, the right thumb rests on the face buttons, very asymmetrical so I don't know why ps fans always run to the symmetry excuse for DS.
When you're actually playing a game, how symmetrical hi the DS3?

I'm not the only one that that thinks this, many 3rd party controller manufacturers share my view. Do a google image search for 3rd party ps3 controller and count the number of times you spot a ps3 controller with the sticks swapped around.
Do the same thing with 3rd party controllers.
Note how a majority of 3rd party ps3 controllers come in the 360 configuration and zero 3rd party xbox controllers come in the ps3 configuration.
3rd party companies know what we all know, this is not 1996 anymore. Time to note with the times.
Lvl_up_gamer  +   524d ago
@ Minato-Namikaze

LMFAO, you people kill me with your whole "symmetrical" argument.

Which way do your thumbs naturally point? The point up, so it's actual physical enforcement to to keep your thumbs in a symmetrical position to use the PS controller.

The PS controllers FORCE your thumbs to be in a strained position for long duration's of time. Do you know what happens when your joints are consistently forced into a position which puts constant strain on them?

YOU GET ARTHRITIS!!!

The 360 controller is more ergonomically correct which in itself allows for not only better comfort on the joints but also less strain on them. This is why, as Good_Guy_Jamal has already pointed out, no 3rd parties make a PS symmetrical controller for an MS system while they do make a MS style controller for the PS3.

Controller manufacturers KNOW where they will make most of their business from.

So long as Sony continues with the symmetrical controller layout, it will NEVER be a better controller then MS's. FACT whether you like it or not. Only fanboys think that the PS controller is a more comfortable controller then the xbox's.

The triggers on that controller are better design than Sony's, and the ends of the analogs. It is not more ergonomic.

@gameonbro While your correct about the face buttons, it's important to clarify the D-Pad is still pressure sensitive and the all the shoulder buttons are now analog, which a fancy way they're all pressure sensitive. You probably know this but your comment is written in a way that could be misinterpreted by those who don't. The only games that use the face button's pressure sensitivity to any substantial effect where racing games and most of those have moved the accelerator pedal from the X button to the triggers this generation. It kind of sucks because I prefer the X button for acceleration personally but it's a minor issue.

_-EDMIX-_  +   524d ago
Agreed. It would be stupid to do a whole tell all and still have the whole year to say what? Nothing?

LOL! They are right to dribble out info from time to time. It keeps people wanting to see more.

Plus the way people see events like this, they look at them like "tell alls" and expect to see and know everything. Why would the leave 1 impression to the market and allow them to make such a decsion?

Look at it like this, MOST people just want to see, games, system, release date, price. Once those things are known, you don't have much of a reason to keep going online for info. If MS just shows EVERYTHING on the 21st, many will have it in there minds that they know enough to make a decision, and I think thats just too stupid and bad marketing.

MS and Sony will not show 100% of there hand in one event. They want to slowly sell you this. Many people thought the PS4 reveal was "underwhelming", yes I know quite strange, but if those same few saw a price, release date and system they would already in there minds not want a PS4.

They feel they know enough. After its all said and done, E3, Gamescon, TGS etc we'll know enough to just stop caring about what MS or Sony says after a certain point. We would had seen enough to factor in a decision. Doing this too early could cause people to stop viewing some events with the understanding that they feel they know enough.
OrangePowerz  +   524d ago
After the comment MS made after the Sony event for not showing the hardware they won't get around showing it.

I hope they don't spend too much time talking about Kinect 2.0 or TV functions because I couldn't care less about that stuff for a games console. I want to know speccs, see games and hear about features that are important for games.

Microsoft may choose to hold back showing the console until E3 along with some awesome looking games (hopefully)....but again, MS were quick to criticize Sony for not showing hardware. MS will look bad if they don't show Xbox.

Now, if Sony have another reveal prior to E3, Sony will probably show their console, in which case MS may have to go all out and definitely show Xbox on May 21st....it's like a game of chess.

Over everything else, the one thing that I wanna see at that event is Microsoft stepping up, and showing off some new games and IP's.

Sony showed off a healthy diversity of games, and even announced a few that looked really awesome. I hope Microsoft do the same.

The thing that's always perplexed me about Microsoft is that technically they have as many IP's under their control than Sony...they just choose not to capitalize on them.

I think Pachter is wrong.....

MS isn't stupid. it would be pointless to present the Same Thing We Got At The Sony Event. I believe MS is going focus on different things that the PS4 isn't capable of...Like software for one. MS will mostly likely talk about their development tools/ software that are compatible with DX11. Something the PS4 can't do entirely.

I also believe MS is going to talk about the kinect and how it differs from the 360's kinect hardware.

Oh and of course MS have to say why PS4's ram wouldn't make much of a difference.

Also, MS will talk about The interactive virtual kid they've been working on for years.

Of course new IPS

@fsfsxii

No wonder you have one bubble.

well, I don't ever recall Sony talking about the PS4's development tools at their announcement. All they kept saying is that the PS4 is easy to make games for which isn't saying much.

Now being that MS is a software company they will mostly use their experience in software development to their advantage.That being said, DX11 will be something I personally think MS should use since most development software/tools nowadays are build from the ground up using DX11.

Mind you MS have spent million(maybe even billions) developing the Kinect hardware/software because it make money for them. The kinect is widely use by over a dozen industries(medical/science/3D application/etc so it I think it would be smart for MS to embrace the kinect even further to grab all of those industry attention I mentioned above.

PS4 main focus was to gain the core market attention while I think MS will focus on both market(core / casuals) so that why I say MS announcement wont be the same as Sony's announcement.

I look at things logically and my reputation on NG4 have always been different from everyone else commits. Oh, If I remember correctly, someone on here said I was nuts for making a commit that they thought was off the wall. I said Nintendo did not have the man power or the resources to make games in a timely manner a few months ago and look what happened. Nintendo don't have any games out and it been over 5 months.

Who Gives 2 $hits rather there was a woman involved in SONYs event. Having X amount of men and X amount of women is for the weak thinking and the government minded.

Companies chose who they please, its not for you to say, dont like it? Dont buy it.

You guys don't even know whats going down, I already got the scoop on all this. MS is going to give hardcore gamers the best from it's franchises along with amazing new titles.
First, they are actually going in with amazing titles from Rare, Expect to see a brand new Perfect Dark title that will blow everyone away. Killer Instinct, Banjo and Jet Force Gemini all coming from Rare. Also coming in are great sequels to Blue Dragoon and Lost Odyssey coming in hot straight from Japan.
Also a brand new MechAssault is under way.
I'm telling y'all, MS is really going to focus on the games this time and will actually take care of it's franchises that are not Halo, it's going to blow everyone away y'all.

If only it were true =/

I'm very excited for the next Xbox reveal.

So far I'm favouring PS4, seems more powerful and the conrtoller looks perfect. 360 left a bad taste in my mouth this gen but I was an early adopter that had several faulty consoles and paid for live for over 5 years which in retrospect seems like a huge waste of money.

I'll pretty much get the console that multiplats look better on, as those tend to be my favourite games.

it was not a mistake on sony's part not showing the ps4 console. this was a pre reveal and we all know there is e3 , so why even question it, they showed what they showed and more is coming at e3, this way they give you a little and then give you more at e3, its not that freaking complicated to understand.
