Xbox One: where the reveal went wrong and what Microsoft should do now

Metro - Well, that didn’t go very well did it? With any big games event the best advice is always to assume the company in question will reveal as few details as possible; and that the bigger the venue the less likely anyone is to address core gamers.

I'll tell u what they need to do is dismiss all the negative crap gamers are mad at. I could give a crap about shareholders. You dont dismiss them, I say bye bye.

cyguration1159d ago

Yeah, this I don't get. Why not just tell us straight up that they will not pursue anti-consumer measures.
How hard can that be? Are they really that indebted to the anti-consumer hivemind of shareholders? It's sad times indeed.

FlameBaitGod1159d ago

What part of the event went right ? Oh yeah forgot about the fish AI DUH!

SexyGamerDude1159d ago

Agree. Only way I'm buying a One is if they get rid of all those restrictions.

Whether the reveal went wrong or not is up for debate. The pessimist will say that Microsoft is screwed. The optimist will say that MS got all the non gaming aspects out of the way to focus on games at E3.

What I have a problem with is their tap dancing around questions regarding DRM.

SexyGamerDude1159d ago

Thy answered it in a review with Adam Sessler. Fees and forced installs are confirmed.

NateCole1159d ago

Which in itself is the problem. It basically mean they are positioning the x1 to be a media hub first than a gaming console.

You don't introduce a gaming console to the world by highlighting non gaming function first.

Sony will have lots of gaming news as well come E3. That logic of getting non gaming functionally out first does not hold water.

LOGICWINS1159d ago (Edited 1159d ago )

The "world" doesnt know the One exists yet. This was a one hour conference that took place at 1pm on a Tuesday. Only the hardcore know about it at this point.

The Xbox One is just about as popular as the Wii U at this point.

Microsoft knows that their audience responds more to COD/Halo television adverts...hence why conferences like E3 are less important to them.

Unicron1159d ago

What about the guy who thinks the show was awful, but that doesn't mean the console will necessarily be awful?

I know you can be overwhelmed, and I know you can be underwhelmed... but can you ever just be... whelmed?

LOGICWINS1159d ago

U pretty much summed up my thoughts. The presentation was horrid save for the first five to ten minutes. But people seem to forget, Microsoft hasnt had a great gaming conference in recent memory, yet the 360 still sells very well.

Unicron1159d ago

My concerns lie with yours, what does this mean for nextgen DRM in general? What hits MS is sure to hit Sony thanks to massive publisher control, and if I can't share my games with friends free of charge (I buy a lot of games they can't), then its total BS.

Movies, music, everything else has become more streamlined. Gaming is becoming a nightmare, and no one is stepping back to figure out the actual problem. Sigh.

Thank god I have 10 more current gen titles to pick up and a massive backlog, I can see how this plays out for a few months.

Agreed, well sort of because I liked the presentation because I was just expecting to see the console, specs functionality etc. but I can certainly understand many feeling underwhelmed by the lack of games and focus on tv, but definitely what bothers me the most AFTER the presentation is the used game policy and worst the confusion even micro seems to have surrounding its implementation. I'm not here for fanboy points, I could care less about the trolling going on but truth is this will affect me only because although I buy my games new 95% of the time I still like to let friends borrow games to see if they like them.

Unicron1159d ago

Totally jokes. People are so caught up in the "my console your console" thing they don't see the bigger issue coming.... Oh god, gaming has become just like politics!

NateCole1158d ago

Agree Unicron. You can bet if MS gets away with this Sony and others will follow. Fanboysim aside this is a big issue that affeccts everyone and not just xbox fans.

If things pan out as they are looking like and if MS vision of console gaming is the future then we are fucked.
