Can someone post the 5 reasons why don't want to give waste of a site the click. plus yawn.

SilentNegotiator1567d ago

#1: There's no such thing as a "console makret"

lol

irepbtown1567d ago

The Next Xbox could possibly dominate the Makret...

Just not the Market.

Bobby Kotex1567d ago

If N4G had a better way to filter out these crap "articles" this would actually be a decent site.

Wagz221567d ago

Lol yes the console we know nothing about will totally dominate next gen braaa! Ridiculous, who approved this crap?

iJihaD1567d ago

Some one should write an article: "5 reasons why should n4g doesn't accept 5 reasons articles".

-__-"

loulou1567d ago

ijihad

the only problem is that n4g loves top 5s. that is why there are so many of them.

just wait until the obligatory top 5 reason why the ps4 will dominate that will come later. then see the lovefest in the comments section

SolidStoner1567d ago

Those reasons seem to me as the 5 reasons why it WONT dominate next gen. I want to see what MS brings to the table on May 21st before assuming anything.

3-4-51567d ago

It may be the best selling.....but it won't dominate gaming like I hoped it would.

You can only spread yourself so thin and I think they are doing that will all the options they are trying to pack into one box.

The more their is, the more that could go wrong and since it's all connected it could effect everything.

What if another RRoD type of incident happens?

They would then have to deal with more complaining because they have more customers, thus creating more negative around it because more people have been effected.

Yetter1567d ago

Hard to say. MSFT is a pretty hugh company with a lot of resources so it is hard to say how 'thin' they are 'spreading' themselves.

jeffgoldwin1567d ago

What if another yrod occurs? Its not sony or ms actually even makes 1 part in their consoles. They are just promoters and contractors for all the parts to 3rd world countries to mass produce them on the cheap.

InMyOpinion1567d ago

@3-4-5 - Do you seriously think they would even risk repeating something like RROD? Can you imagine the backlash that would generate? The more likely scenario is that the next Xbox will be extremely durable from the get-go.

Bigpappy1567d ago

You guys keep trying to downplay Kinect, but it will be the secret sauce this holiday season.

''An Xbox with a $199 price tag on 2 years subscription of Xbox Live could definitely boost the sales''. How about a..... i dont know a FREE online gaming system.... you know with not having to pay for something you should already have for free. Now that would boost the sales

@malokevi
North American Sales Figures:
X360: 42.83million
PS4: 26.44million

This figure showing XBox was failure outside North America.
Rest of World:
X360: 35 Millions
PS3 : 51 Millions...

I had no idea the PS4 had already sold so well ;-).

Go ahead, edit it and make me look dumb.

PS4 Mentioned by malokevi, so i copy pasted his comment
use common sense

PS3n3601567d ago

if you add those figures together you get 77.83 million xbox and 77.44 million ps3. I don't understand how it fails and wins at the same time.

InUrFoxHole1567d ago

Use common sense, says the guy arguing sales numbers.

loulou1567d ago

gamerzelite

going by your logic, then we must say that the ps3 was a failure in north america yes?

And like with the WiiU the casual market won't be fooled again by another Kinect.

jeffgoldwin1567d ago

Or the psmove. We want controllers damn it.

iNFAMOUZ11567d ago (Edited 1567d ago )

#karmicdemon at least it didnt flop like the move hahaha

xbox has always been more hardcore than sony, and will continue to dominate into next gen, get used to it

ShugaCane1567d ago

I'm happy for you then, you'll have so much fun with your harcore Kinect 2.0 games.

grimmweisse1567d ago

Name me a kinect game that was a hardcore game, AND was successful. If kinect can mess up a really hardcore game like steel battalion then you can keep your "so called" hardcore games!

Maybe your idea of fun for video games must be waving your arms around and jumping like a moron. So hardcore!

UnHoly_One1567d ago

I love when all the PS fanboys on here get all defensive about US sales figures.

Let me ask you this, just out of curiosity. (Those of you that live in the good ole USA, anyway.)

My question is, what difference does it make to you if the Playstation sells 20 or 30 million consoles in Japan? Seriously, what does that mean, exactly? It benefits you how? I get that you want your company to do well and make lots of money, hell, I do too. I like playstation games just as much as the next guy.

But I'm going to be honest here, I couldn't give two shits how much any console sells outside of the US. It doesn't affect me at all. I care how much it sells HERE. How much a company focuses their attention on ME, not somebody across the ocean.

I care how many people are going to be online in MY AREA, so I don't have a shit connection playing multiplayer. I care about how much shelf space the stores in my home town dedicate to the more popular console. I don't give a damn if you can't find an Xbox at the local GameStop in Tokyo. I'm never going to be there anyway.

I could go on and on, but I'm sure I already have about 40 disagrees from people that haven't even read this far.

Anyway, my point is, the Xbox brand is just more popular in the states. Whether it will stay that way is anybody's guess, but if I had to bet on it, I'd guess the chances are pretty good.

If you think the CoD crowd that plays online shooters and nothing else is going to jump ship to switch to the console with a crap online service and a terrible controller, I think you're going to be in for quite a surprise.

awesomeperson1567d ago

"switch to the console with a crap online service and a terrible controller"

I read your whole comment, but that little aside generally ruined the rest of it.

How can you judge the online service, or the controller, when presumably you haven't used either for the PS4? I do get your possibly referring to the mentality of the "CoD crowd" but still.

I was very happy with PSN this gen, my updates were slow however PS+ made up for that, and did more for me than any other service has.

IRetrouk1567d ago

I agree with everything you said bar the very last bit, psn is fine and plays online games exactly like the 360, there is no real diffrence other than party chat, unless you have ps+, i use both all the time, the experiance is the same.

Flatbattery1567d ago

Bit of a rant, but had a good point. Then made the whole thing irrelevant with the last paragraph.
