One problem?How about trying over 9000 problems!

Definitely looks like they have one major issue: lost of gamer trust.

Sure they've got the Halo Madden and COD crowd, but past that?

Objective1158d ago

Haha that's a very very big crowd you just mentioned there... Is there a bigger crowd you have in mind?

guitarded771158d ago

I am put off by the XBOX One as much as anybody, but I don't think anyone should be too surprised. MS is following the same plan they've had with the 360. Just carrying it over to next gen.

At least they have 15 exclusive games to show with 8 new IP's. But if they continue to follow the course, over half will be Kinect 2 games... and that wouldn't surprise me.

NewZealander1158d ago

you say they have the halo croud like thats a small bunch lol

anyway going on what ive seen so far its day one for me, xbox one looks amazing, only thing im not sold on is no backwards compatibility, but hey my 360 will still be hooked up anyway!

dont like kinect being always on? unplug it when the consoles not in use, problem solved!

^Objective, I have a far bigger crowd in mind; it's called 'Everyone Else'!!! :P

EVILDEAD3601158d ago

Lol @ the article. It's not a problem at all.

Xbox one can't replace your Cable box. It will simply supplement it into ONE (lol) input.

It's a simple HDMI-In situation that's optional. If it does what MS says it will do then it'll be huge + for any cable owner with a standard box.

I loved the voice stuff as I use Kinect now to pause and play movies.

Godsmar you guys are overeacting or just trolling. I like the legit criticism, nothings perfect. I cant speak for everybody but neither can you but personally I have full confidence in micro delivering a great gaming platform. Gamers may have bad feelings about some choices but I doubt it will seriously have a huge impact as long as there are games people want to play. Its funny I never hear you guys frown endlessly on online passes when sony does it and I bet if they introduce some similiar used game fee you guys are'nt going to give up on sony. I predict this all in one strategy is going to be very appealing, I'll bookmark this post and we'll see if I'm wrong, but I wonder what will be you guys excuse will be when its selling out?

As for this news I dont think its micro fault if you dont have cable, plus you still can do everything else except cable tv stuff, also even by his own analysis theres you are talking about a very small group.

JackBNimble1158d ago

Sony has nothing to do with online passes, that would be publishers like EA & Activision who implement that. And online passes are completely different from what MS is planning on doing with XB1.There will be no borrowing or renting games on XB1 platform, only buying.

Gr811158d ago

That isn't even the biggest problem! Though it is pretty high on this list. The whole damn thing is lame. I can't think of a positive atm regarding this Box.

aviator1891158d ago

dedicated servers for all games on X1?

that isn't a positive thing?

Gr811158d ago

But no backwards compatibility? Used Games Fee?

mmccarthy41158d ago

@Arius Dion The have a fee because after you install your game the disc is no longer required i would not be suprised if used games from gamestop or other retailers came with some form of redeem code or a lower price. If not used game sales would definately plummit.

HammadTheBeast1158d ago

^ WHy is this BS system even in place?

DonFreezer1157d ago

Yeah just like me.I can't even think something positive about the ps4.

Can do no wrong for me I am as devout as you fellow sony gamers enjoy your games.

As a Microsoft fan, I have to admit I was worried about the nextgen due to the lack of information coming from MS. After yesterday, a huge weight has been lifted off my shoulders. MS brought the heat and the world's most powerful gaming publisher brought the most powerful game - COD Ghosts - as if begging to be on Microsoft's team. I realized at that moment that Activision knows something that we only sort of know: The XBOX One is the king of nextgen. I'm relieved and excited!

Ron_Danger1158d ago

You do know CoD is multi platform, right?

punisher991158d ago

"The XBOX One is the king of nextgen. I'm relieved and excited! "

More like completely and utterly delusional. What does COD ghost have to do with microsoft anyway when this game will also be on the PC and the PS4??

Gimmemorebubblez1158d ago

"I realized at that moment that Activision knows something that we only sort of know: The XBOX One is the king of nextgen. I'm relieved and excited!"

MS was having a three-some with two whores, EA and Activision. EA and Activision only hopped in to bed with MS because MS paid them well.
