Xbox One: The Future of Gaming, Death of a Console Maker, or Destroyer of an Industry

BigBoxGaming- "You have to give Microsoft credit on one thing, their new console has definitely gotten a big response from the gaming community. Probably not in the way they expected, but a response nonetheless.

Now, as Microsoft tries to hash out all the details on how they reach their goal of TV domination, I thought it would be worth while to look at what the console will eventually become once all is said and done.

One view is that the Xbox One is an always on security risk, that is evolving gaming consoles in all the wrong ways, and which if adopted by other companies will eventually morph our hobby into something horrible or destroy it outright. (View 1)

Another point of view is that, we know the system will be good at games so everything they add is just icing on the cake. The more extra features the better. (View 2)

And lastly, the direction Microsoft is taking with the Xbox One is a mistake and this concept will result in lost customers and missed opportuni... (Xbox One)

If Microsoft keeps with their current direction the Xbox One will be known more for what it wasn't rather than what it was. IMO

A gaming console?
caleb4779  +   614d ago
Not for hardcore gamers.

But the casuals will eat it up.

^^^ Funny thing is that in no way will this effect the gaming experience I plan on having with my PS4 this xmas.

It will actually be kind of nice having a clearer difference between each console, let everyone do what they are good at and we can enjoy them for what they are.

If I want to play some Mario with my kids I'm going WiiU.

If I want some party games with non-gaming friends or family I'm looking at you Kinect and Xbox One.

For the best exclusives and multiplatform experiences "core gaming" it's the PS4. (Since I don't plan on buying all three it will probably end up being a PS4/WiiU combo)

Feel like we are kicking a dead horse at this point, but if everything stays the same as it is now there is no way Sony won't have the better "gaming console" next gen.

But there still many uncertainty on PS4. Anyway, it seems my day as Xbox fanboy is over.

But you know Microsoft is going to run this puppy ragged either way.
caleb4779  +   614d ago
Wrong horse for the wrong race.

The whole problem has been the Xbox One is only being shown as a media device which, surprise surprise, gamers aren't that excited for.

You can't say enough how bad a PR move that reveal was. Start with the games then bring in your extra features later.

The depressing thing is they probably did lead with what was most important and we are just reluctant to see that games have taken a back seat to Microsoft's bigger agenda.

Destroyer of an Industry
josephayal  +   614d ago
the video game industry was worth approximately $67 billion, They are here to stay
glennhkboy  +   614d ago
No, it seems that MS is ACTIVELY getting out of game industry, trying hard to get into a dieing industry of TV.
IcicleTrepan  +   614d ago
Right.. their new console doesn't play games at all, right?
NateCole  +   614d ago
It will not destroy the industry but it is the start of the end of gaming as we know it.
AO1JMM  +   614d ago
The site is obviously just going for hits.
CommanderWTF  +   614d ago
It doesn't have to be. Be part of the solution: buy a PS4.

XBOX, go on amazon. XBOX search PS4. XBOX buy PS4. XBOX accept. XBOX sell yourself. XBOX accept. XBOX go home, you are drunk .

Sweet me and ms will ride this industry into the ground day one ms.
kingmushroom  +   614d ago
the console world doesn't revolve around MS so it will live on thanks to Sony
glennhkboy  +   614d ago
XBox One is the combination of all things wrong in Game/Entertainment! MS is making all the same mistakes Sony has done with the lunch of PS3.
Nocando  +   614d ago
Now its just getting silly. Stop.
BladerunnerZX  +   614d ago
The game console market would be just fine with just Sony and Nintendo.

Gears of War would sell millions on PS4 and PC and Microsoft could sell Halo to well any other multiplatform game publisher and be done with it.

The fact is that the majority of the gaming community dont want you around anymore Microsoft ... Microsoft GO HOME !
gamer7804  +   614d ago
Wow... just because it does other entertainment well doesnt mean it can't do gaming well. Remember how ps3 was marketed? "It only does everything." These machines are very powerful , let's not short-sightedly sell them short.
