IGN Poll Result: 75% Disappointed with Xbox One Reveal

Yesterday IGN revealed the results of a poll run by IGN UK, which asked IGN readers about what they’d like to see at the next-gen Xbox reveal event. Microsoft effectively did the opposite of what respondents told IGN, focusing on the system as the entertainment centre of the home, as opposed to a gaming device. (Microsoft, Xbox One)

Thought it would be higher....wait till people really understand

respect to Adam sessler for trying to get MS to just come clean

so what we know...every game is linked to an account..basically you cannot just pop a game in and play offline..ms have stated there are advantages to linking games to an account its so you can log in anywhere...bullshit

every game is linked to an account so you cannot get round the no lending..every game has to be checked online first before you can play ..thisis so MS can check that only the account holder who bought the game is infact playing it ...you can go to a friends download the game from disc and log in on your account to play but when you leave if your friend wants to continue playing he already has the game data downloaded onto his system now..but he has to log in on his account and pay Microsoft a fee to unlock the game as obviously when you get home you have to log in on your account to play any of your games as two seperate Xbox ones cannot be logged into one account....hence the name Xbox ONE

what has angered me is the way Microsoft have worded this rubbish thinking that we as the consumer are stupid id have more respect if they told it how it is

With all the negative feedback to their reveal, I wonder if Microsoft will change their plans. Guess we'll have to wait for E3 to find out.

What I got from their event is that they are really pushing for the Xbox One to be the go to source for everyone's multimedia centers. Which is fine as long as they don't lose focus on the most important thing for a gaming console....The games.

That's what I think too, this is too much negative press and they have to back track

If I was running MS, I wouldn't even wait till E3 because that's free positive press for Sony/ps4

I feel like every other article has been about this stuff, I am tired of commenting the same thing again and again. Some fanboys will defend MS but if you are a real gamer and if any of this is true we shouldn't stand by MS on these issues

Talk about TV
NFL deal
Kinect 2
Get MS employees to clap and hoot for every announcement

Don't show ay real gameplay footage

Keeping saying experiences in every sentence

I mean how could one company get so much wrong at one conference, at E3 Sony goes last conference wise and I bet you anything they will have a plan B depending on what MS shows

they should have waited till E3. if they didn't anything to show.
because what they did was shot them self's in the foot big time.

Its funny that these ppl are professionals. I am not a professional but I would have begun with CoD. Then teasers for 4 or 5 games promising reveal at E3. Then unviel the box itself and what it does. Tell everyone about online and achievements quickly and close with battlefield and halo 5. Nuff said.

I think Microsoft will be fine. And I wouldn't be surprised if they sell the most units next gen. They are going to take the Wii's place.
Kinect, voice control, all the multitasking, skype etc will capture peoples imagination like the Wii waggle controller did.

I'm a gamer, I'll be buying the PS4, and I don't care about TV, Sports and gimmicks, but you'd be surprised how many people eat this stuff up.

They are selling to the fickle general public now, just like Nintendo did.
Remember when the iPhone first came out. No video recording, rubbish camera, no 3G, but the touch screen captured the public's imagination. My wife would be impressed with the X1 if she saw it. To her the PS4 is just another games console. But a proper games console is exactly what I want and I bet what all you other guys on N4G want, but that isn't what Joe public wants.

I'm calling it now. XBox One will kill.

At This point I think it's fair to say MS do NOT see the xboxone as a games console, so why would they have games as a primary focus anymore...

The way I look at it now it really is simple, no need for all this debating and backwards and forwards pulling on the issue.

If you want a Games Console for Gamers with Games in mind, BUY A PS4.

If you want a multimedia device that connects all your other multimedia devices and centralizes them, If you like being robbed blind and you DO NOT like swapping games with friends etc.. and you like doing 5 or 6 different things all at once then buy an Xboxone.

I would like to think that MS will take in all the negative feedback regarding this and make some sort of change..

Let's be real though, there is no way they could not have seen this reaction coming. just about everything has been flying around the net for months now and they knew our feelings towards this, yet they still went ahead anyway. That shows they have too much invested in these crazy money grabbing ideas.

Negative feedback alone will not change anything, they had plenty of that even before the reveal.

It's only when their xboxone is sitting on store shelves and nobody is buying it and their stock hit's rock bottom, that is when they will realize it was a bad idea.

You don't cross the fans that got you where you are in the first place.

I remember when these rumors started and someone said there is no way these business guys at MS would be stupid enough to actually try this crap. I said something along the lines of you would think MS is not stupid enough, but I would not put it passed them...

Well looks like they are stupid enough. The worse part though is they must think we are stupid and the scary part is some gamers are actually willing to defend them on this!!!

I don't think they have a reason to change their plans, because they're super-convinced that they will nab an entirely different audience than the gamers who watched the reveal (and collectively cringed). IGN polls and Twitter battles? Who cares? We want an audience who thinks those things are stupid, and therefore still calls those things "gay" in 2013...

They're going after Bros. Rich dudey dudebros. Sports! TV! Sports! TV! A TV show about a first-person shooter! Guns! More guns! Dogs? Guns! TV! By the way, no talk of a subsidized system. This thing will be expensive, but not "I'm going to play a bunch of good games" expensive, like the PS4.

But not just Bros. USA Bros only. TV implementation elsewhere will be rolled out over time, and you've got one heck of an international market who won't buy your console if it requires an internet connection. If you're selling your console on TV, and you're in Spain, screw that console for a year or so. If you're without a home connection in rural Indonesia, screw that console forever.

They think that will be enough, that rich Bros will just jump for that expensive system. I don't think it'll work, because smart TV's have come so far. My PS3 is my go-to box for my TV, but that's only because my TV's old. My friends just got a new TV, and by default they can voice-command the thing to open a YouTube video via Google TV and upscale the thing to 3D, no box required. If you're a rich Bro, you already have that functionality. Yes, it'll sell on day one, but after that, I think we're gonna see a huge backlash among the uninformed.

What it comes down to for me is one simple question. WHY SHOULD I BUY AN XBOX ONE? The answer is clearly- I shouldn't. It doesn't offer me (as a gamer) anything that PS4 doesn't already offer me, and without the iron fist micro managing, and overpriced subscription fees.

Xbox One positives:
- Next gen/powerful compared to current gen
- multitasking, seemingly quick to switch between tasks
- NFL deal?? I have cable for that don't I... or will they stop showing football on cable... I'm confused.
- I got nothing else... COD timed exclusive map packs???? Oh wait, I hate COD

Xbox One negatives:
- Internet connection required, at least in some capacity
- Games can only be used with one account, then a fee paid for additionals... sorry brothers and sisters, mom and dad have to pay extra for you to play too... suck it up.
- Batteries still required for controllers... WTF? It's almost like they are trying to piss people off.
- Focus on entertainment hub instead of games. No exclusive announcments, and the ones announced at E3 are going to be the same crap as before- Halo, Gears, Forza, etc. They say they have 8 new IP's but when are they coming out? Over the next 5 years?
- Pissing off indie community .... again.
- Xbox live subscription fee. No doubt to use all of these new features it will cost you plenty of cash, just like it does now. Meanwhile on other consoles, most features are completely free.

I could go on and on. At the end of the day, gamers buy Xbox. I know MS is trying to change that, but it has to start with gamers, and right now, most gamers are giving them the finger. Even the most hardcore Xbox fanboys are not able to see the positives in this (see above- there aren't many). Wait for E3? For what? So Microsoft can show you a few games that will take 4-5 years to develop like Alan Wake, and a bunch of third party games that will come out on everything else? If this was poker, everyone would be calling their bluff. Just fold MS...

the ps3 was supposed to be the all in one media device and it failed. only when they went back to core gamers and doing the things that put son in the driver seat from ps1 and ps2 days did the ps3 start doing well.. a blu ray at the time was a nice thing. but its not why people decided t buy the ps3 n the first place. and they had B/C and allowed used games. smh xbox has and was the reason why bad presidents stated this gaming gen and i can see they will be the reason the carry on into the next. i hope they fail and fail miserably.. if sony is to have competition from another console maker let it be steam or someone like this because microsoft is a joke..

Gamers are disappointed in the Xbox One reveal because Microsoft didn't really show games. I get that, but they did say before hand that E3 would be about the games and that this was just an hour long hardware reveal. I think it's natural for hardcore gamers to be concerned. But, it's not really a big deal. Microsoft basically just showed how Xbox One differs from the Ps4. Ps3 has more raw power than the xbox 360 but that didn't matter this generation. Sony doesn't get it. They think that having more raw power means they will sell more units. Its not the RAW power that matters when it comes to graphics or gameplay. Its the software development tools that are most important. Microsoft will always lead in that area as they are a software company at heart. I actually believe that Microsoft took the correct path in regards to hardware and the ALL IN ONE concept! We will see at E3, but I believe games will look great on both consoles. But, consumers will look at it as which console gives them the most bang for the buck! Clearly that would be the xbox One. All most consumers are going to see is the 8 gigs of ram, blah, blah, blah...It will look the same Spec wise to the average consumer...But, it does so much more than the Ps4. And most likely for the same price or less! Put more Xbox Ones in the home, coupled with the software tools for Microsofts console, games will look and play great! We can all scratch our heads at the name Xbox One....That's until the blitz hits the airwaves and it al makes sense. One console, One device, for ALL your entertainment! Video Games, TV, Movies, Music...etc...If you don't see how a device like that, for the same or lesser price....with the same numbers in regards to ram, hard drive, etc....Will sell like hotcakes...then we are naive. Hardcore gamers like myself will own both consoles day one. Both will have great games. Fanboys will continue to brag about stuff that doesn't matter in the real world. If you live in the United States...why do you care how many consoles sell in Japan? Or Europe? When I game online, I play with friends. Right here in the United States. How many friends do you fanboys who scream about over seas console sales have in other countries? It's all silly if you ask me! I love supporting my country and buying American made products! Is that so wrong? What has Sony done for you for you to be sooooo into them? Strange people!

"Its the software development tools that are most important. Microsoft will always lead in that area as they are a software company at heart."

This will no longer be an advantage for Microsoft as the PS4 was designed by developers for developers.

I'm struggling to see how Microsoft can come out on top unless they are lucky. Kinect functionality has already been done on the 360, yes they did sell an awful lot of Kinects, but the question is how many are actually being used anymore. I think that fad may have run it's course, the same as Wiimote and Move. Anybody with the money and desire to watch TV already have devices to fulfill their needs, why purchase another one? The casuals may not easily be sold this time.

Any serious gamer will already be scratching their heads at Microsoft and if they can't deliver a desirable gaming demonstration at E3 then that demographic will just walk.
MoveTheGlow  +   331d ago
1. I wouldn't call a reveal that mostly talked about OS functionality in relation to TV an "hour-long hardware reveal."

2. You're talking about something being cheaper than something else already. No one's quoting prices, and a new and more refined Kinect's bundled in with the Xbone. Let's wait on that one.

3. I wish all hardcore gamers had the money you're talking about when you say they'll buy both consoles day one. I know that's a bit of speculation about the pricing, but come on, these things aren't going to be cheap.

4. "One console, One device, for ALL your entertainment! Video Games, TV, Movies, Music...etc.."

Actually, that's two devices - your console and your TV, if you're lucky. Hook up your computer to your TV, and you've got that already. It's called the "input" button on your remote. You could do everything but games from a smart TV by itself, too.

5. "I love supporting my country and buying American made products! Is that so wrong?"

Not at all! I wish things actually worked that way. You should probably read up on Foxconn: http://www.guardian.co.uk/w...

What you're talking about is an American-designed product, not made. Certainly not manufactured. You're supporting an R&D team here, though. So there's that. BTW, the PS4's designed by a team of Westerners. Guys who have been in the business so long that we played their games back in the 8-bit era. So there's that also.

OMG are you serious? Your argument boiled down to "I'm buying American because I'm American" I was going to argue with you on how wrong you are about the xbox being a better bang for the buck (since you dont know which costs more and also you will have to pay to play with your friends every single month, whereas PSN is free)I can buy a whole game with the money you cash out each month to play your friends that is huge, then you went on a tangent i can't follow you on (nationality of said product, if such a thing matters)

MS have already done the Kinect scam and screwed millions of people out of their cash. As soon as people see how important Kinect is to the new system they will say to themselves "why would I want another one? I barely used the last one"

Even Nintendo know that goose has been cooked and moved on, al be it to something just as useless to core gamers.
CalvinKlein  +   331d ago
some site was having people vote with twitter and it showed a world map and every country was blue for ps4 vs xbox 1. I think it wsa like 89% for ps4 vs 11% for xbox1.

Above, all tha games in the world coulnt make me buy this thing. Forced online and kinnect. I hate motion controls and kinnect. It has to compete price wise with the other consoles so the xbox1 will be weaker than ps4 once the specs come out as alot of the money will have to go toward the included kinnect instead of the console. Not to mention that the xbox only has 5gbs of its ram available for games vs ps4s 7gbs.

Meanwhile Sony has been including batteries in EVERY controller since this generation started.

There is no defense for this one. It is a BLATANT monitization attempt.

Also the hard drive will once again NOT be user replaceable.

Sony has allowed user replaceable hard drives since the generation began (I assume this will continue but don't know for sure).

The used game thing is completely overshadowing everything MS hoped to achieve with this conference.

MS wanted us talking about the features shown. They wanted people to go and play the fan boy wars about why TV/Internet/Communication/Game Console integration was going to be a good thing. MS wanted us speculating on how great the games were going to be come E3, and have us salivating at the prospect of 15 new exclusives and 8 new IP's. They wanted us to be discussing how they are actively pursuing new original content through making their own entertainment media. They wanted us talking about their partnerships with EA and the NFL, and how that could be a bonus to the system for those that care about that sort of thing.

All these things they wanted, and yet they get none of it because of one stupid decision to restrict used games. Hell, most of the negative feedback over the reveal has taken a back seat to this one issue.

I guess at the very least I can hope that all this makes MS reevaluate the decision, but I'm not going to hold my breath.

You know it's bad when you go to the official Xbox forums and see anger along side posters with high post counts. Pissing off even Xbox fan boys might really hurt them. But we shall see, the fact is Microsoft never cared about gamers they made it clear in the interviews about the making of the Xbox brand that they wanted the apple/google type crowd and they thought a game system might help them sneak into that fight. It's Just know its transparent what they want from a company standpoint. If anybody ever thought they were in it for a love of video games they have not followed the history of Microsoft from a business point of view.

rainslacker  +   331d ago
Their intent was as you say, but one can never deny the good things that they did bring to gaming. They faltered at times in the past, but so have all the console makers. For the longest time XBox's primary focus has been games, and they have made a good name for themselves among gamers because of that.

Unfortunately, no matter how much you say your about the games, when your interest do become so clearly against what gamers want, there is nothing that is going to stop the tide of hate and discontent and betrayal that comes from your fans.

It really is a shame, because I would have loved to see what MS would have brought to the gaming industry and community if their focus remained on games. Sadly, what it seems to be bringing now are two of things that gamers are saying they do not want. Partially always-on and used game restrictions are something the gamer just doesn't want. MS showed their intent in the worst possible way.

They found out 360 owners were spending half their time watching Netflix and assumed "People want to watch TV" instead of "Crap, we should make more compelling games so that people stop watching Netflix."

That sums up Microsoft's thought process with X-One.

And it's not like the X-One is a bad system. It was just designed with the wrong focus. We have cable boxes already, and Netflix and Skype on our PCs/Tablets/Phones.

PS4 seems to be the exact opposite. A huge focus on gaming, gaming, gaming.

Off course they found out that people were watching netflix, sure xbox clearly abandoned the core fans after the kinect...apart from 3rd parties what do they have to play?? dont say Halo,Gears or kinect, look at last Gears sales.... It's not about how many games you provide it's about variety, Microsoft likes to generalise and that's their main problem!

I hate to say it, I don't think I have ever agreed with anything DJ has ever said about MS, but..... I think I ag... OH wait, no I don't. I don't even agree that. I actually think it is a Bad system !!

lol

A system that blocks used games behind a paywall is a very very bad system.

I am a Nintendo Fan but my position is:
WAIT and SEE.

See,
I don't know why Microsoft didn't show games and yes, the reveal was boring-
BUT
They promised to show games at E3 and at E3 people will give Hands-On Previews of XB1 and PS4 games.
(15 New IPs)

Plus,
There is all of the stuff about Online Connection and Used Games- that PS4 or XB1 may implement...

Once all of the News is out then I will make a decision on who will be 2nd (to WiiU).

I think it will be Sony but I will keep an open mind- until more is revealed.
DARK WITNESS  +   331d ago
Yes but given the track record of the last few e3's you can understand why just saying "wait till e3" is not generating any enthusiasm..

if they really had so many games, why could they have not shown half at this conference and the rest at E3?
CouldHaveYelledUiiW  +   331d ago
To be more precise,

They did show games just not the ones I am interested in and the only one that did kind of interest me was mostly live actors.

You make good points but "enthusiasm" is not the really what I have. I am just being prudent because GEN after Gen, I have seen companies make these mistakes and recover.

AndI have seen people rush to harsh-judgment only to "catch the Vapors" later.

I'm shocked about the 25% who were pleased with it.

Wow, got to be rich to have an XboxOne and make use or all its features and be able to pay monthly to watch that new Halo anime thing.

PS4 will probably be the #1 choice for the less rich and smarter people.

this is not good...
MasterCornholio  +   331d ago
It was horrible in my opinion.

At the moment i prefer the PS4 over the Xboner so unless Microsoft does something amazing with their console at E3 i will not get it.
slapsta72  +   331d ago
other 25% are in denial, or may simply not be gamers? lol
Dape  +   331d ago
Isn't ironic that watch dogs is coming out on the XBOne.... Kinect watching you at all times!
Sheikah  +   331d ago
They have some weight to carry a E3, that's for sure..

@Allowen

shouldn't be that the smarter you are, the chance of getting rich is higher? I mean Bill Gate, Steve Job, etc....are filthy rich, but according to you, they aren't smart then? How the hell do you make money if you aren't smart?

How ever, this is actually the first time that I'm actually confuse about MS with xbox one.

I love the tv and interface features, the fantasy football interaction is great, the potential of cloud gaming will be amazing, and i'm even excited for the 15 games they were talking about even if there will be kinect games (kinect game are still game, many of them are actually very fun to play, just because people on here "believe" they aren't game doesn't make it true). I totally understand, that businesses need to go into this direction because everyone want contents anywhere anytime. Nothing wrong with that.

The problem however is the way they handle their services and contents:

1. game lock to the account (making lending/used game useless)
2. don't allow indies to freely publish their games and even have strict rule for submission etc......

Those 2 are the biggest concerns
1. I always buy my games new and even i don't like the idea of game lock to your account (i do want to lend out my games from time to time to family and friends and still be able to do other things on my account) I would consider this anti-consumerism
2. Indie developers are growing rapidly in this mobile age and i don't see how you can get more support by imposing restrictions? I thought MS wanted more developer support? Unless they thinking of taking the Apple approach, which people actually don't like either.

Sony actually doing it right this time around and "Learning" from the past "mistake" which i applauded them for, but it also point out that many on here are hypocrites since they blamed everything on other developers and such for ps3 short coming instead of Sony for the problems (even sony own developer such as polyphony digital said themselves for the GT5's problems). It is funny that many on here now suddenly acknowledge that Sony make mistake with ps3 and giving Sony prop for acknowledging it? So technically, on n4g, Sony always get prop or praise regardless if they make mistake or did something great? For that reason alone, i can't really take what people on here said seriously if at all.

Microsoft and Sony will both have to bring their 'A' game at e3 in order to win over gamers. MS will probably try to secure exclusive content as they have in the current generation as they did with GTAIV. Something from Final Fantasy would be huge.
I hope Sony will clarify if they will have any restrictions regarding used games and region free games as well.
