Xbox One Social Media Buzz Reveals Microsoft Frustrated Many Gamers

Gamerhubtv - With the world as its stage and a lot of time to get things right after Sony’s PlayStation 4 press conference in New York City, Microsoft dropped the ball at its Redmond, Washington Xbox One Reveal. The company chose to focus on entertainment capabilities rather than exclusive games, and many gamers were frustrated and upset about this approach.

The story is too old to be commented.

Microsoft completely blew it's opportunity to show the world exclusive games

Muerte24941855d ago (Edited 1855d ago )

with things that seems to be opinion more than fact.
"COD: Ghosts is not exclusive to Xbox One; however, it is a launch title for the console and will feature exclusive DLC for Xbox One users. This could make a difference considering the popularity of COD."

Microsoft paid for this and they paid alot. COD sales start trending on ps4 more than X1, then Activision will not renew this contract.

"Microsoft will have the chance to answer some of the questions that gamers are asking at E3, focusing more on the gaming aspects of the entertainment device. Sony has a lot more to gain from E3 since they shared less information at their press conference and didn't even reveal the hardware design."

Sony focused on games at the reveal of their next gen GAME CONSOLE. Microsoft showed more, but press even was half that of Sony's? There were no games running live unlike Sony's event. Microsoft didn't SHARE their stance on used games, it was LEAKED! There is more buzz? How much of that is positive buzz?

All that happened was they got exposed for what they really are, which would be a bunch of snakes. They just got arrogant because their fanbase constantly allows themselve to get snaked by them (happily, I might add). This time they took it to far and got exposed.

Microsoft blew alright.

They now have a problem. They have to repair the damage they've done (incoming policy wise), show the games they have and reestablish trust with the gaming community.

It'll require a monumental effort and may need more than just an E3 conference.

Edit: For edits and stuff.

WAIT TILL E3 PEOPLE!!! Are ya'll really so damn thickheaded that you cant remember that microsoft said this press conference "WASNT ABOUT GAMES". The xbox is more than that now whether we like it or not. But you havent seen the games yet. So shut up and calm down. WAIT UNTIL E3 TO JUDGE. That show wasnt for us

thechosenone1855d ago

No used games and the 24hr prison check-in means Xbone is DOA.

KillrateOmega1855d ago (Edited 1855d ago )

"microsoft said this press conference "WASNT ABOUT GAMES"."

Which is exactly where they f*cked up to begin with.

They were revealing their GAMING console to an audience of GAMERS and honestly thought that it would be a good idea to show ALMOST NO GAMES and NO LIVE GAMEPLAY to these GAMERS? How stupid can you be?

They had a chance to really win back the trust of gamers after all the negatives rumors that have been supporting the notion that they are becoming more of an entertainment system instead of a gaming console and they blew it!


LOL. I remember just weeks ago when Xbox fanboys were all screaming for everyone to wait until May 21st to see MS turn the tables on Sony and blow us away. All you need to do is look at the majority of polls and forums to see how that went.

Besides, have you completely forgotten about their revealed second-hand games policy and 24 hour check-in?

This video is a summary of what we got at the reveal:

Cyfyxtfg1855d ago (Edited 1855d ago )

@killrate bro the xbox is no longer just a gamers console. If you own a 360 you know this by now. We have to live with it. This new console builds on that. Im not sayin i like it cuz i dont. It makes the ps4 way more appealing. BUT they said they have a hell of a show for e3 and i believe them so ill wait and see. My loyalty lies with who wants me more as a customer. Ive been xbox since day one but if they dont deliver e3 i wont get their console at launch.

And dont lie. The second hand game policy is still being finalized as stated by larry hyrb <---- however u spell his name

MariaHelFutura1855d ago

Why do people have to wait until E3? Even if it's a 2 part conference why the hell is the 1st part all about TV? Microsoft said alot just by doing that. Not to mention blocking used games, requiring check-ins and having weaker specs. Everyone when all the rumors were floating around said "wait until the Xbox reveal", now it's "wait till E3". It's kinda pathetic.

Cyfyxtfg1855d ago (Edited 1855d ago )

So wait, when you think of e3 do you think of games or tv??? Answer the question truthfully and you know why they waited

"Why do people have to wait until E3? Even if it's a 2 part conference" like you said, its a TWO PART CONFERENCE. Thats why we wait. Get the bull*#^+ out of the way first then hit the people who matter (the gamers) hard. Who here wants to sit at e3 watchin that boring tv conference we just saw??? Because they have to show it at some point. Its a big part of their console. They did what was right. No other way to do it. End of discussion

Whats wrong with building a little hype for your consoles games baby? Nothin, until the community starts complaining cuz they cant be patient

KillrateOmega1855d ago


I just don't understand why they would wait until E3 to show off the games. That's such a stupid plan.

Why not show off the games during your reveal when you have the media all to yourself? When they show off the games at E3, they'll have directly compete with Sony and Nintendo for attention.

Rainstorm811855d ago (Edited 1855d ago )

Who the fug was it for???

Mainly core gamers buy consoles at launch , so every unveil , press conference, meeting etc needs to be for the people that will wait in line 12 hrs like I did for the 360.

...and if they think soccer moms , sports guys or TV enthusiasts will be in that line they will have a rude awakening come this holiday season

I'm sorry but wait till E3 went out the window when they announced a TV Show at a hardware unveil..I think the show will be good but that's an announcement for another time.

Besides where were all these patient people when Sony said wait till E3 to see the actual console?? Which s minor in comparison...


@ Cyfyxtfg

The problem with that though is that even the last few E3s have hardly been about games.

year after year we (xbox fans of which I am one) have been saying wait till E3... And every year this has translated to a GOW sequel, Halo sequel/content, Forza sequel and a Fable sequel and exclusive DLC.. That is timed.. for 6 months. Oh let me not forget kids jumping up and down infront of kinect!

Sorry, wait till E3 will not fly this time round.

They will need a major change of policy and a very clear cut answer regarding the questions we have + some earth moving H bomb style announcements as games if they hope to make any sort of redeeming comeback from this mess.

Tyre1854d ago (Edited 1854d ago )

@ Cyfyxtfg It is not about the games dude...the console is gimped and the restriction will ruin everything. Think DA!

MS is showing it's games at E3. How many people are going to continue to play this dumb? Over a month before the reveal, they said that E3 they'd show the games, and May 21 was about the console.

There can't be that many of you is there?

Edit for this killer omega above me. Funny you say there is a gaming audience yet it's ok for you that Sony didn't even show it's console at a you know... console reveal. But of course, you don't have any problem with that.

Ju1855d ago

At least there was somebody on stage holding the controller (not only at the reveal but also on Saturday live) to actually PLAY a game - and handing the controller over to somebody who does't work for or not. Who knows if what's in the box is actually working if you can't do a live demo?

nypifisel1855d ago (Edited 1855d ago )

"Wait for EA, there's where the games will be" is an argument you hear often - it is however a stupid one.

Microsoft revealed their console and what's important right there is to set the right TONE and FOCUS. Having a reveal talking 45 minutes of everything and anything that has nothing to do with Games doesn't show promise. It does show that Microsoft have changed direction. The Xbox One sure will have games, the game part of the console however won't be under any special focus and care - It's about resource allocation, and if to go anything from the reveal, Games just lost 75% of the attention from Microsoft.

Forget it, Xbox is no longer a Gaming Console - It's multimedia console that happens to play games.

This is stark contrast to the PS4 reveal, a reveal that in hindsight might just have been everything we gamers wanted. It ONLY focused on gaming, everything that was every said in the whole reveal had to do with games, how they would play, look, be developed, interact etc. 100% gaming focus. If any of you think the Xbox One will get better exclusives and more of them this generation around is extremely mistaken - it'll get even fewer.

syphon321854d ago

They're going to try and make up for it at e3, but the first reveal did matter. They're going to have to work harder to win gamers back after that horrible conference.

3sexty rulzzz1854d ago

they used us, the gamers as an anchor to compete with google and apple, all while giving us the middle finger. no more will I be loyal to xbox because its not a gaming system but something microsoft is using to compete with companies other than sony and nintendo. In the end you get an inferior product because the other competing companies are focusing on games and ty and set-top-box for you entertainment.

They don't care if they've frustrated gamers. It's pretty obvious the Xbox One was built WITHOUT gamers in mind.

negative1855d ago

LAME. Move along fanboy...

yesmynameissumo1855d ago

Move me. Then get another bubble and try again. Baby need his binky? Hahaha!

Rainstorm811855d ago

Why should he move along? He's right

Here's n example let just look at the intro of each unveil...

PS4 -

XbOne - (couldn't find the intro only) but a bunch of people's faces talking about nothing exciting

Sony came out All about Gamers of all Kinds.....MS showed their first game 35mins into the unveil and not 10 seconds of an actual game being played.....and this is a device gamers should be excited for??

brettyd1855d ago

As much as the reveal gave a middle finger to gamers, I'm not going to kill them until I see what they have to show at E3.

Minato-Namikaze1855d ago (Edited 1855d ago )

Your that abused wife who keeps giving her abusive husband ONE more chance because "deep down he's a good person and can change"..... this what happens when MS wants you to wait till E3.

brettyd1855d ago

Im not holding my breath, but it's not like Im buying the console on the hope that someday I'll get a game I want. Just not making any snap judgements, I don't like jumping on the sensationalist bandwagon.

Rainstorm811855d ago

Lol completely redesign racing games....Joyride?...LLS

KINECT will launch with 15 games.....they pulled that same line Tuesday and everyone ate it up again....

That Press conf was full of over promises...and the people that fall for it again deserve what they get

Ju1855d ago

Don't really care what MS does at the E3...because Sony will simply wipe the floor with them. No matter what MS does - I fully expect having Sony an array of PS4s and PS3 and Vitas on display. Final PS4s (must be in production by then, this box is done) running (!) demos of KZ, Drive Club, inFamous and some third parties (Watch Dogs? Destiny?) in addition to full Vita-Remote play and PS3 running Last of Us and Beyond Two Souls. Eat this. And we haven't heard anything about Nautghty Dog's PS4 game nor Guerilla's second franchise! Good luck MS.

MasterCornholio1855d ago

The XBONERs conference turned me off.

mrmancs1855d ago

Anyone seen the funny as video on YouTube of the Xbox one unveiling? It's got TV mentioned about forty times , sport , e.a and scanned high res dog... Funny as f.... Can't post link on here , supposedly it looks like spam...
