Pretty sure the entire gaming world is somewhat disappointed in more than one aspect of the Xbox One.

I couldn't agree with you more. I mean no in game gameplay with ANY title. All we got was a hyperbole of what it will be without any real in depth details on nearly any aspect of the console other than multimedia implementation. The ONE thing "gamers" don't care about. It's as if our worse fears (the rumors they were heading this direction and how they finished up the last few years with the 360) are coming true.

I want MS to focus "primarily" on gaming and have their entertainment as an "it's also a great multimedia hub". Instead it appears they are going heavy on it being a multimedia hub with Kinect implementation and it will "also" play video games.

i think people are disappointed because they were talking about entertainment so much..

they basically did the opposite of what sony did..
(bad or good your called)

but remember folks this aint over...e3 is around the corner and this is where the wars will begin..this was a warning shot that missed for the most part.. but a shot none the less

No Sony shot them in the leg straight up, and they dropped their gun. Better crawl to it now and hopefully have some silver rounds in there.

Cause this Gen, Sony's a whole new Beast.

honestly sony has its own problems to deal with...

like i bought into the whole ps+ digital downloads because i thought i could probably play them on the newer system when it comes out...but now thats not the case...

this whole gaikai thing is going to be trickier than most people think..(there's gotta be a catch)

and if they try to charge me to play the games i bought on the ps3 disc/download ( like the psp/psvita program like in japan) imma be pissed off and that will suck big time... i have 120 games for my tres.. and i dont really want to rebuy games..and have the old gens next to the new gens..
(i aint got space for that)

The thing is, I get what they want to do with the Xbox One. They've been talking about creating a media hub for a while, and with this event we saw that idea clearly presented. From a business perspective I also get the idea.

But I'm a straight up gamer that doesn't use most of the other apps and abilities, so from that perspective I walk away feeling sad about the whole thing.

I get it. I do. But as a gamer, Sony's event inspired more confidence in me. I don't feel like I'll just be a single part of an entertainment hub on the PS4, like I would be on the Xbox One.

And before anybody starts, I'm not a fanboy of either company. Sony's event was not spectacular, it didn't have any real wow moments either, but it was solid and games got a good focus. Microsoft's was good if you went in to it with the view that they wanted to create an entertainment box, but if you went in to it as a gamer.......sadness.

i just got home from work, and was so pumped to watch the xbox one videos...


the show sucked, hardly any gamplay, the hole show was about interviews...?!
EA sport videos could of use some athletes sweat!!!

the name sucks, and the console its self is UGLY!!!

well, i did have in mind buying an xbox slim, i would hope they get a price drop and get me the last 2 gears of war that i never get to play. :D

im disappointed with the specs, the new box is really weak in terms of power. I thought they were competing with Sony. Guess not, Sony is alone in their own league. MS and Nintendo will compete for the casual gamer.

The last thing Microsoft could do to top this failure off is to make it cost more than the PS4 and raise the price of live.

Ozmoses1615d ago

If you weren't disappointed with what Microsoft showed than you are not a real gamer..

This is complete and utter BS in terms of anything gaming related...

and to cap it off after the press conference SONY stock jumps up 9.25%

Even investors don't seem happy with the new xbox...

Jek_Porkins1615d ago

Just so you know, Sony's stock dropped and Nintendo's and Microsoft's jumped after the PS4 reveal.

I knew there wouldn't be a ton of games, and I still haven't gotten an answer as to when a better time would have been to announce the non gaming features for the Xbox One?

Everyone is complaining about it, but nobody has a better idea of when to show those things off, it certainly would have been worse at E3. I think getting the other stuff out of the way early is the best thing they could have done, could have done it much better in my opinion, but I like the console's look, the controller and the games seem like they'll be amazing.

HammadTheBeast1615d ago

I went down less than 2%, and later that day was +2.42%.

Reverent1615d ago (Edited 1615d ago )

If I was an investor seeking stock in a reliable source, Sony would have my money. Thank you Sony, for actually caring about us gamers.

Dunpeal1615d ago

reveal was pretty craptastic, even after having time to prep for a rebuttal to Sony's

GamersRulz1615d ago

MS pushed the initial April reveal to show this? fu**ing hilarious !

Dunpeal1615d ago


btw gotta be the same assclown disagreeing with everyone in this unanimous thread lol

Funky Town_TX1615d ago
