The "Nextbox": What Would Make Us More Open to Microsoft's Next Generation Console

SuperPhillip Central writes, "It was officially announced yesterday that Microsoft will be unveiling their latest home console on May 21, less than a month from now, at their own special event. We at SuperPhillip Central love console reveals and cannot get enough of them, so we're excited for this new chapter in the world of Xbox. However, there are some things that we really want to see for the console that might make us more willing to invest in the system. For one, we would hope that Microsoft learned from the Red Ring of Death problem that shoddily built consoles suck. Regardless, we have eight other things that would make us more open to the next generation of Xbox. Here they are."

What would make ME more open would be:

don't block used games
no always online console
free online play
free access to my Netflix account
free access to my Hulu+ account
less kinect focus
more exclusives
better d-pad on the controller
ditch the MS points rip off system
many new IPs
Killer Instinct 3
offer another 3 year warranty out of the gate(for obvious reasons)
focus more on games instead of charging for pointless apps that are free everywhere else

Do those things and I will be open to your new console MS.

AngelicIceDiamond1671d ago

Even if MS did those things you still wouldn't buy it lol.

"MS has one casual game not buying it now."

darthv721671d ago

I dont need convincing. I'm open to any and all gaming platforms. That has been my philosophy since the Atari age.

I dont expect others to share the same sentiment because....this is one expensive hobby. For those who have the means, they understand the reward.

If you can't enjoy the industry as a whole then whichever platform you choose should only matter to you and no-one else.

greenpowerz1671d ago

MSFT leaving gaming is the only thing that would make you more open.

You would just find something else to hate on or troll the differences from PS4 of the thins you listed if they came true.

ApolloTheBoss1671d ago

YOU of all people have no right to say that.

nukeitall1671d ago

I don't think anything will make StrongMan open to MS, other than MS buying up Sony or leaving the game industry!

However, I'm not sure about the latter.

free online play
free access to my Netflix account
free access to my Hulu+ account

If you have free online you have all free apps other than their required payments. So you should just mention free online.

Captain Qwark 91671d ago

i dont have a problem with continuing to pay but id like to see the service continue to run as well as it does and perhaps offer some incentive like psn plus.

free access to apps should also be included regardless of gold. your paying for those separately i dont think it should matter if your gold or not

Oh_Yeah1671d ago (Edited 1671d ago )

How can you disagree with this...even if your the biggest xbox fan boy. MS looks at you like a pile of money. I think it's time they start giving value to the gamer and matching what their competition has to offer.

UnholyLight1671d ago

There will always be subscription based online play, but I can see it shifting to more of an offering that Sony is going to have with PS4.

One thing I can say for sure the BS microsoft points stuff is gone...they've already said they are phasing that out I thought?

It's only Microsoft that could ruin the chance of me buying it.

Nothing I'm afraid, absolutely nothing.

It might be great, however I can only afford / focus on one console and have made up my mind that will be PS4.

stage881671d ago

I agree.

I don't like MS's snidey presence in the game industry. The amount of damage they have done this gen is too much to even think about considering getting another Xbox branded console.

Daves1671d ago

I'm slightly biased stage88 as I already own a PS3, and before that an original xbox.

I guess I'm just sticking with what I know and like.

But yeah, snidey in that they "want to control the living room" ...but let them have it, proper gaming goes on in the man cave.

pete0071671d ago

carefull, i might return to your comment after next box reveal

Daves1671d ago

Please do! MS will have some features Sony are promising in the future out of the box. But my mind won't change.

PSN-JeRzYzFyNeSt1671d ago

i have a 360, but ive come to a conclusion Ms wont have any good exclusives again.. and i want to play the last of us so im going with PS4.

BattleTorn1671d ago

Don't need a PS4 to play Last of Us..

PSN-JeRzYzFyNeSt1671d ago

well i do because i dont have a PS3.. so ill wait for the PS4 version.. i wont only pick up that game tho..
