Xbox 720: 10 Reasons It’ll Win Console War Over PS4

Whatculture: With the news that Microsoft is going to unveil the Xbox 720 on May 21st, discussion over which company – Microsoft, Sony or even Nintendo – is going to win the console war has started to run rampant. We’ve already suggested why we think it’s possible that the PS4 could win the fight for next-gen supremacy, but given that we’ve yet to see anything from Microsoft yet, it seems a tad unfair to call the fight before the behemoths have all squared off. In just a few short weeks, we’ll have all the answers, when Microsoft lifts the curtain on their latest games console.

Still, it’s fun to play Devil’s Advocate and speculate on just why they’re going to blow Sony out of the water. Here are 10 reasons why Micoroft are destined to win the console war…

"10. Their Main Competitor Has Failed (WiiU)"

Really? Nintendo is their main competitor? I coulda swore it was Sony...

Godmars2901186d ago

Two generations Sony was clearly leading, so yeah, this gen has had no clear "winner" just console makers struggling to make a profit.

AngelicIceDiamond1186d ago (Edited 1186d ago )

I recently haven't been seeing eye to eye with @Mars but he is right.

I also believe Sony and MS will struggle to make a profit going on next gen.

Its clear signs that Sony and MS will be pretty even in specs and quality in first party games. With Sony releasing "right away" rather than later it should really even things up for Sony going on next gen.

Both of MS and Sony's first party and third party stables are locked in ready.

And the fanboys will be too...
Get ready for a new generation of trolling amongst gamers.

As far as the article goes, it fails in many ways.

easier to develop for.... there the same damn chips and unified ram pool is just as easy to use as split so... yea thats a fanboy comment

GuruStarr781186d ago

And, The number #1 reason the article states is Kinect 2.0?!

Fail....

Muerte24941186d ago

10 reasons:

10:Wii U floudering (It just means the number one spot is up for grabs

9:Microsoft's track record (Microsoft though this gen and the previous has been outsold by Sony)

8: Cheaper (now prices have been anounced)

7: Superior Online (This is debatable I have a LIVE sub and I can honestly say there is no difference. There aren't even dedicated servers in most of their exlcusives)

6: Good things come to those who wait (same thing can be said about any system)

5: Blu-ray (Ps4 will offer this too or you can just purchase a ps3?)

4: Exclusive content (You're joking right? Sony losing exclusive to Microsoft? Doubtful)

3: More comfortable controller (this is only for shooters. Fighting game player actually prefer DualShock because of the D-pad/ personal preference)

2:Easy to develop (Both system are using APUs)

1: Kinect (it had it's moment but ultimately because a "dust collecting" peripheral)

A man doesn't have to say anything but look at that ^ comment

Would think that #9 applied towards hardware reliability. That if that they cheap out with the BR or have another certain "issues", especially early and widespread one, they aren't going to be coming back from it. Not when they're putting themselves out under "convenience".

Gimmemorebubblez1186d ago

For those of you who don't like slides.
10- WiiU floundering
9-Microsofts Track record
8-Cheaper(Probably)
7-Superior Online
6-Good things come to those who wait
5-Blu-ray
4-Exclusive content (Timed exclusivity etc.)
3- More comfortable controller
2-Ease to develop
1-Kinect

JoGam1186d ago (Edited 1186d ago )

Ummmm the main thing that should be on the freaking list and considered for why the Xbox 720 will win the console war over the PS4, is GAMES. WHY IS THAT NOT ON THE LIST? Never mind, PS4 is getting my money anyway.

For the record, whoever wrote this opinion piece please know, "GAMES" is to be considered if we are talking about a "GAMING CONSOLE". Everything else is just secondary.

spongeboob1186d ago

Apparently games don't matter to the guy or guys who came up with this hugely debatable list.

This list looks like it was written by Micheal Pachter and Nolan Bushnell or 2 over the hill guys who have no business talking about the games industry.

patterson1186d ago

This looks more like a list of why the PS4 will be better than the 720. Especially the Kinect part lol.

Max-Zorin1186d ago

The neutrals and the gamers that don't berate you(like 50% of this site) for having a different preference already won the war.

Hicken1186d ago

How is a competition between two sides won by someone who takes neither side?

In any case, this list is complete and utter crap. None of the reasons make any sense; half of them aren't even confirmed.

I'm amazed the usual suspects aren't in here supporting it.

Jaqen_Hghar1186d ago

A man couldn't read after 360 "left PS3 in the dust" ages ago apparently. An author goes on to say how it managed to catch 360 last year in the next sentence. Need a man say more?
