Xbox One and Microsoft's miscommunication

MMGN.com: "To say there is a little confusion in the wake of Microsoft's Xbox One conference is a gross understatement." (Tag Invalid, Xbox One)

This device has exceeded my expectations for Microsofts next gen console failing. Hats off to Microsoft for creating a console that even hardcore fanboys are againist.

My expectations were low but jeez microsoft even managed to disappoint me.

And about the miscomunication Microsoft didnt have any issues with that they said what they wanted to say.

And that is the XBOX One is an all in one media box that focuses on providing services and sports to your living room and that it has an extra called gaming.

Gaming should have been the main focus and not just an extra.

There was absolutely NO miscommunication. They knew exactly what they were presenting. Even post-event interviews up until now shows that they meant everything they showed and said. And sadly, they were actually proud of it.

MS mistake was simple. They didn't unveil it as a gaming device.

I know it'll have its fair share of games at E3. But that's NOT how to unveil a console EVER.

The 360's unveiling was fantastic they should of done it that way.

Honestly, I can't see what all the fuss is about. They showed the console & control, they showed kinect2 working, they showed Skype, they showed the biggest selling game in the world cod & the biggest selling sports titles new engines. They showed a couple of exclusives & said the will show off 15 exclusives in the game event E3 round the corner. Now did you all expect then to show off all their games with E3 just round the corner. If E3 is full of Kinect games & the exclusives are really inferior to the PS4 ones, I'd agree they're in deep trouble, but untill then let's wait to see.

The cheering was fake
the box was huge
he was controlling the kinect with a remote in his pocket
they didn't show any gameplay
they have Skype on the 360 or at least announced it at E3 in a past
"15 exclusives; 8 of them new Ips" 4-6 being kinect titles
You can't borrow or share games
You might be able to resell game according to GameStop though
Games MUST be installed to play and you MIGHT be able to play SOME w/o Internet
You still gotta have a cable box to plug into the Xbox.

I could keep going but basically they're messing up.

The used/resale of games won't just be Xbox why do you think EA done away with the online pass last week, because they knew this was gonna happen, both consoles will require a pass to play a used game, I'd be very surprised if that's not the case.

@PSVita
Nope still not surprised, Sony state they wont block used games just as Xbox wont block you playing used games, but you will still have to pay for a code. Listen I don't really care, I buy all my games for pc so I cant re sell anyway, I'm just saying its going to be very surprising if Sony don't do the same with the code. I will totally agree that if they don't, it will be a disaster for Microsoft.

“We are just now announcing the basic vision and strategy for PS4, and we’ll have more information to share regarding used games later this year.”

Sony worldwide studio head Shuhei Yoshida

Same kind of response to the subject MS gave.

They could've shown one fucking exclusive at the very least.
iistuii  +   516d ago
They showed two exclusives at the reveal i think. Quantum Break & Forza 5.

This is a PR nightmare from the beginning. Nintendo never recovered from a terrible first impression and MS are going to struggle now.. even if their e3 is a gaming bonanza a lot of the people who would naturally be early adopters are the people who talk about it on n4g, neogaf etc. and so far I don't see many people who are likely to change their minds.

There is a big difference in revealing a console and launching a console.

Everybody in business knows you dont listen to people. If you try pleasing people you will fail. People in general are very stagnant and scared of change.

N4G and the internet for that matter is mostly Sony supporters. The real consumer are the ones that will be watching TV, they are the ones that saw Madden and COD ghosts at the reveal and loved it.

When they launch they will run some adds show some commercials. Show support from the biggest games and everyone will be stunned they are selling like crazy.

Have you ever seen people at the Smart TV sections at Besbuy. They are alway interested wait until people see up close their new ONE interacting with their TV.
