Im pretty sure all the XBOX fans are satisfied with the event because its exactly what they asked for.

SoapShoes1642d ago

Maybe some, but I doubt many of them are.

As an Xbox fan I can say the conference was underwhelming but does that automatically mean the system sucks? If I were to listen to every post on here I should go back and start beating off to the Sony press conference (which in reality was underwhelming also. Let's be honest). I'll hold my judgement until more games are shown (for both systems). Now bring on the disagrees because I'm an Xbox fan. The more I get, the more it proves this site is overran by Sony fanatics.

JsonHenry1642d ago

Right now I am leaning toward the PS4 but I will absolutely not write it off completely until E3. (where they said they would show the games and gaming related features)

konnerbllb1642d ago

I'm an xbox fan and I wasn't satisfied.

denawayne1642d ago

Like I wrote above, I wasn't satisfied either. Now if the system were to launch tomorrow, I would say it's definitely in trouble. Let's wait till E3. MS WILL have games to show.

sinjonezp1642d ago


that is the problem. Everyone was saying wait and see on the 21st. Well all our fears have been proven and they didn't show any real gaming content. They came out and showed a DVR box and television connectivity and stuff most people did not care about. What made Xbox - Xbox, was the gaming integration. That is what got them to the position they are in. Now they did not show anything of real gaming, just a few cgi or crafted fabrications of what the product may look like...Regardless of the games, the amount of money they are going to ask for in return via , subscriptions, used game installs, ect, I will have to pass. The biggest thing for a consumer is to feel as if they invest in a product and get ROI. If I'm spending massive money on products I can get elsewhere without overheads, I'll use simple logic. No more wait and see. They shown, and its not very attractive.

I have to reply by saying that the PS4 really hasn't shown me any differences than the Xbox One. Really, point out the differences. Are they really that different or are we mesmerized by these press conferences? I will hold steady until E3 and then the launch to make a decision on what I'm going to buy.

Maddens Raiders1642d ago (Edited 1642d ago )

for me the conference was over once the word "XBOXONE" flashed across the screen. I was like wtf? There's already been an XBOX that was #1. Surely they're not calling it that right? Right? Wrong - shut up and eat your Kinect cake you silly consumer/casualgamer.

Godmars2901642d ago

Pity then that MS wasn't talking to them...

Pyrrhus1642d ago

I would not be surprised if people like you lump those Xbox fans disappointing with this underwhelming display with Sony fanboys.

The reveal was terrible for a gamer.

Don Mattrick is such a joke. Former EA lackey now heading Xbox brand into ground. Is what it should say on his resume.

matrixman921642d ago

was there even a swing? its like they walked out on stage and just died

PirateThom1642d ago

I don't get why people are upset NOW, this has been my percieved view of the 360 for the past 4 years.... it's not doing anything different other than no one is pretending it has a focus on games.

cleft51642d ago (Edited 1642d ago )

They just gave a reveal where gaming was a footnote. Say what you will, most people brought the xbox 360 for the great games on it and all the media features where just an added bonuses. People are upset because they watched that reveal expecting to see the future of gaming, not a VHS player.

PirateThom1642d ago (Edited 1642d ago )

Yeah, but, again, that's been how Microsoft has presented the 360 for the past 3 or 4 years.

People kept buying the 360, why change something that was working?

jessupj1642d ago

That's a good point. As it stands, the 360 has not being supporting core gamers for a long while. 2 AAA exclusives released last year and 1 this year. People were expecting MS to suddenly flip flop and start catering to them?

It's been blatantly obviously for a while now that MS has no interest in core gaming.
