Xbox Reveal: How Microsoft Can Win Gamers Over

The Microsoft Xbox Reveal event is due to take place on May 21st but what exactly do they need to show to win gamers over? (Industry, Xbox One)

They need do nothing cause am already on board & ready to buy the console,launch games ,Kinect 2 & whatever XBL comes with. With that said let's get to releasing these items.

The time is inching closer and closer. And MS is backed into a corner (in a good way) because they simply can't leave gamers waiting any longer now. While the negative rumors are still lingering around.

No more excuses now.

Besides, I enjoy all the good Sony news, but its getting a little tiresome now. I would love to see a change of pace on news traffic flow other than Sony and Wii U.

After the Xbox reveal this site will be refreshing for the time being.

Battlestations Midway MP was one of my best times in recent memory. Pacific MP sucked

Kinect is the best, as long as that is included everything else will take care of itself.
Wni0  +   737d ago
how about make a focus on, you know, games.
Enemy  +   737d ago
- Forget about Kinect
- Focus on hardcore gaming instead of apps
- Optional subscription service, make Xbox Live free
- Lots of exclusives
- Quit thinking timed "exclusive" DLC is more important than new games

Couldn't have said it better
Aceman18  +   737d ago
yea what enemy said. i'd purchase their new system if it
1 made online play free not paying someone else to use my own damn internet that im already paying for.

2 have a variety of exclusives that aren't just shooter based. variety is the spice of life.

that's it if they do these two things i'll consider purchasing their new system if they dont i'll just keep my 360 and that will be the last console i'll ever buy from microsoft.

and in case anyone thinks i don't own a 360 just check my gamertag.

zero cool 108

Forget about xbox, concentrate on PC gaming.
Simply make Windows the best gaming environment (ok, for some it always has been), support hardware suppliers and game developers.

This is the first generation where when the consoles are released PC is already a pretty good amount more powerful.
DARK WITNESS  +   737d ago
easy...

games, show games, not just games but games for the "hardcore" or core.. Show games that will make me want to buy it.

I am not really interested in jumping up and down in front of it, i am not interested in dancing in front of it, I am not interested in sports apps or tv shows. Some people are and there is nothing wrong with that and there is nothing wrong with meeting their needs as long as you don't forget mine.

I bought the xbox for halo CE, I bought the xbox 360 for games like Halo, Gears, ME etc. I want to buy the next console for bigger and better games that are exclusive. Now when I say I want bigger and better games, I am not just talking about a bigger halo and a better gears because that feels like that is all I have had the last few years.

I want full games that are exclusive that will stay exclusive, not exclusive DLC that will be out 6 months later on the ps4.

I want you to justify why I am paying £40 a year for xboxlive when ps-plus users get full free ps3 games while we get 50 ms points for being loyal, bullS%"&T !!!

Shape up MS !!!

New IP would be a good start. I don't mind sequels, just want to see something new. That being said, a new Banjo-Kazooie would definitely be appreciated.
slampunk  +   737d ago
I cant wait until the 21st so i never have to see another headline

"How xbox can win next gen"
"5 things MS must do"

with all of them containing the same points!!!!

My god, we know the list backwards and forward. I may just stop reading articles altogether until Tuesday. Who am I kidding? Of course I will.
