One Hit Pixel: "After many years, it seems as if the seventh console generation is finally coming to a proper end; all the cards have nearly been played. Nintendo began things with the Wii U last year, while Sony ushered in the PlayStation 4 name with their press conference earlier this year. Then again, being last to reveal comes with a few advantages. For one, they can’t make the same mistakes that Nintendo made with its post-launch lineup. They also can’t possibly make the same mistake Sony made in their press conference, as Major Nelson famously had a dig at the company’s missing console by tweeting, “Announce a console without actually showing a console? That’s one approach!”
Microsoft’s plans are currently a mystery at the time of writing, but if we were to ask the company for what we would like to see, what would we say? What lessons could they learn not only from their competition, but also their past experience?"
