Only games can save Xbox One

Behind the 'always-online' and 'pre-owed fee' PR disasters, there are deeper and more dangerous problems for Microsoft (Microsoft, Xbox One)

I still wouldn't support the console in the current state because its too restricted
PLASTICA-MAN  +   921d ago
Yes games and not only just "games", exclusive games and not just some time exclusive DLCs or games releasing on PC and later on other platforms claiming them to be exclusive. Well, Yesterday, they tried to make COD Ghosts and EA Sports games to seem like exclusive ones, that was a big mistake. REAL exclusive games need to be very good too with great graphics and new ways to play and maybe..MAYBE then they can save a console whose main focus isn't

Real exclusive CORE-games. New ip's preferably instead of the same old franchises since 2007 or better yet since first xbox.

Lets just ignore the anti-consumer tatics like second hand game fees, online connection every 24 hours and disc passes( you have to have a code ). I mean but games..... right?

Not just that, outside of USA, a lot of the features are useless.
maxgamehard  +   921d ago
Agreed, Even if they bring the games I will not support a box that locks games to your account. That is anti consumer. You affect families, friends and game rentals with such a stupid move.

On top of that kinect is mandatory, Mandatory every 24 hour online checks and mandatory game installs. In addition the hard drive cannot be upgraded.

I hope people agree with me in the fact that I will not support an anti consumer xbox.

You'll still be playing these Xbox One games on an anti-consumer console that is harming the gaming industry and harming your rights as a consumer. Games are the least of people' worries right now and are upset about the console itself

I dont even think games will save it.Especially when you factor in the sh*t they just did.
strigoi814  +   921d ago
I dont think its just games. The time they show how many servers they have for xboxlive and when the guy say that xbox live was a $64 million dollar industry, it only direct me to one conclusion "we want more of your money"
urwifeminder  +   921d ago
I think you guys are nit picking pc is where it is at but im looking forward to getting this big beauty.

I wish more people are like you in this world. It is good for exploitation. But unfortunately, you belongs to the minority.

I'm wondering how many of these "upset" people were going to buy Xbox in the first place?
InTheLab  +   921d ago
So you think this is all Sony and Nintendo fanboys? It's almost the entire gaming media dude....Almost all of them. The only ones that are not pissed are the few that, seemingly, enjoyed what was shown at the event and the incredibly awful news after...maybe the Escapist...uh..Rev3. Aside from those sites and a few others, damn near every other site is pissed about the drm, the hdd, the name, the look, and "oh...we have 15 exclusives...take my word for it".
Ron_Danger  +   921d ago
I can't wait till this winter when we get to hear how many units they shipped!
denawayne  +   920d ago
All? No. At least half? Yes. This site has become predominantly Sonyfans. I'm reserving judgement until the day I can buy the system. I think most Xbox fans feel the same way and are not speaking up. Will the used game thing be a deal breaker for me? It very well could be but until I get all the facts, I'm not going to get all up in a tiffy like all these articles banking on hysteria to get hits. Why would I be pissed about the HDD, name, look, or 15 exclusives? That's silly. We know nothing about PS3's HDD or look. The name Playstation really is childish if you ask me, and when Sony announces they have exclusives, it's like jesus arose from the dead. MS comes out and announces 15 exclusives, like everyone wanted to here, and all I here is ''they're all Kinect games".

But...they didn't announce 15 Exclusives. Announcing projects and maybe titles is not the same as telling you "he's a new inFamous,Knack,Driveclub, etc." Can you name these 15 games? I can tell you the WiiU will have 20 exclusives coming out sooner or later and who need evidence? Just take my word for it.

Games will save a system that wasn't developed with gamers in mind!!! Yeah sure they will.
Nunchez  +   921d ago
The pre-owned fee is just unacceptable. E3 has to be awesome for them otherwise they're finished.
swishersweets20031  +   921d ago
microsoft the ship that sinks itself
BlmThug  +   921d ago
I am so dissapointed in MS. MS lost me as a customer from the moment the original Kinect was announced
babis1974  +   921d ago
yes only games ...TV,NFL blah blah blah TV NFL blah blah!!!
mcstorm  +   921d ago
Im looking forward to seeing what games the one has at E3. 15 exclusives in the 1st 12 months and 8 new IP's that big.

People will like the PS4 or WiiU over the One but for me them announcing Forza 5 as a day one game was me sold. I am a big Forza and GT fan and with Sony only putting GT6 on the PS3 gives me no reason to get a PS4 on day one so I will get the One 1st (or 2nd as I already have a WiiU) and get the PS4 later on next year.

Looking forward to E3 as I see Sony and Microsoft hitting the stage hard an showing off what they have.
SonyAddict  +   921d ago
Valve need to bring out the steam box asap so that sony will have some real competition to go head to head with them because I don't think MS can cut it anymore!,sad day for Xbox gamers:=(
