Our Roundtable on What Microsoft Needs to Do at E3 to Fix Xbox One’s Mixed Reception

Frontburnr: The Xbox Reveal has come and gone, and with it, a lot of people are considerably less than excited about the Xbox One. On top of showing hardly any games, Microsoft didn’t bother to address many of the rumors or concerns we’ve been hearing about regarding the upcoming console, leaving quite a sour taste in the mouths of the core audience. But, hey, everything’s great if you’re a big sports fan or really have some creepy desire to watch TV through your video game playing box!

We’re all divided on how we feel regarding the announcement, so we’ve decided to lay our thoughts on the table for you.

Who do you agree with?

Annihilate at E3.

Which I doubt that they can do considering that they'll be competing directly with Sony at the event. They'll have to somehow completely overshadow Sony, who is riding high on a tidal wave of positive hype.

The bar is set pretty high for Sony. It will be easy for them to fall short of expectations. Not saying they will, but it's something to consider.

Microsoft on the other hand hasn't really shown any of their lineup and the details behind most of the have been under lock and key. Their original message was cloudy but we don't even have anything but rumors to base expectations on.

They definitely fell short of expectations in E3 2006, everyone was wanting more info in the PS3 there and when we got it, they turned into a laughing stock.
Y'know, Giant enemy crabs, RIIIIIDGE RACCERS!, delayed in UK and five hundred and ninety nine US dollars.

they should cancel the used games and spy kinect stuff, and on top of that announce some massive games during their conference.
I'm telling you, it's gonna be hard to top Sony's conference this year! a FF will be revealed and mostly Sony first party studios will make the show with their upcoming games. It's gonna be the strongest E3 ever! good luck Microsoft you guys are gonna need it. Let's not forget that PS4 will be shown and that only will create a massive hype.

If MS want to fix the initial perceptions of the Xone they need to clear everything up.
Stop all the confusion, be clear.
Show games.

Imagine if they say xbox live is free. I know they wont, but they need something like that.

KillrateOmega1994d ago


They need to stop beating around the bush and just be clear when asked directly. Instead of having every other representative answer the question in his way, just send out one single, clear, concise message.

NBT911994d ago

No. It's not a competition. They don't need to be better than Sony at E3 to turn around the mixed reaction, just better than the One reveal event.

kreate1994d ago

if they truly want to annihilate at E3, all they gotta do is tell us xbone can be:

1 played offline with no restrictions.
2 no ads for paid members
3 there is no hidden fee or confusing system made for used games
4 Kinect does spy but its optional, u can play games without it
5 these are the games we want to show u (no halo, gears - but next year is halo/gears) <-- ok

*games should be 80% core games and 20% Kinect games

They'll do what they always do.Gloss over the finer details, pat you on the back with one hand and pinch your wallet with the other.

elhebbo161994d ago

1) announce that kinect is optional, and you can disconnect it.
2) triple A NEW ip's. a couple of them and not generic.

I doubt they'll do any of those. but who knows maybe they listen to ther fans...hahaha.

xxLuckyStrike1994d ago


Bingo! M$ could remove the lesser of 3 evils and soften their stance on DRM and always online. They'll Then drop 15 megatons on that A$$. *And possibly reveal something no one expects. (possibly a credit card scanner on the controller) lol jk

yesmynameissumo1994d ago

Games. Exclusive, 1st party, stunning games. No Kinect trash, just core "wow" games. But I honestly think that's gonna come from Sony.

DEATHxTHExKIDx1994d ago

All they have to do is deliver on games and Ill be good.
