On the day of 14th June 2013, the PlayStation 4 is dominant within the Most Anticipated lists for both GameStop ( US stores) and EB Games Canada while Xbox One remains to be seen within GameStop's.
Nor should it!!! This POS is an abomination against your rights as a gamer, consumer and human being!!!
Completely agree. I am glad to report this news. If the Xbox One wasn't anti-consumer, I would have supported it as it could have brought competition between the big three which helps create better games in the process. However, in this circumstance, I hope Microsoft suffer sales wise this gen from their actions.
That was inevitable
From a business standpoint, Microsoft is aiming to attract a completely different demographic. The issue is that the demographic aimed for could be a hit or miss. I wish them luck.
Pretty much this. At $500, I personally don't think the audience they're targeting will be interested at that price, and the gamers, who generally are the early adopters of consoles are most likely going PS4. Who knows tho, with good marketing I'm sure they'll trick enough stupid families into getting one.
Casuals bought the wii because it was the cheapest console with a fun game everyone had to have.. Rich-poor families were able to buy one for $250.. Xbox one is double that plus u NEED internet & whatever else.. That just isnt going to work no matter how they market it..
Just pre-ordered my PS4 today at my local EB Games in Canada....So good to have that pre-order receipt. Makes me feel like a kid again :D Greatness Awaits/4>1
the poor saps that buy a (d)one,,... won't even be able to sell it.. 'till death do us part'
I don't see how anyone can purchase a Xbox ONE over a PS4. I think the amount of sales the Xbox ONE gets will truely show how many silly or non-educated consumers there really are out there, because anyone who is educated in what the Xbox ONE is and what Microsoft are pulling, would not buy it
thats the problem ufo not many people will have the information we do and will buy it anyway. Funny to see the fat long haired bloke in my game store who has always tried to sell me an xbox over a ps3 was whistling a very different tune today and was telling a couple that it was the playstation console that was the only one to buy. I think he was crying a little as he said it but at least he understands and is passing the information on to new consumers.
Remember back in the early 00s when more people were using dial-up and broadband was for the 'middle-class' home? That is all this is, but in 2013. Microsoft helped evolve console gaming online back then. Maybe now their vision can't be seen because of ignorant gamers who jump to conclusions, but over time it'll be clear. Can't wait for my console and launch titles to arrive at my door.
buzz you remind me of me on n4g years ago. (Only it was the ps3 I was looking forwards to. M$, how the mighty have fallen.
This isn't the first time M$ has done this. Here's a clip of CEO Steve Balmer laughing at the iPhone over the Zune in 2007. http://www.youtube.com/watc... Arrogance.
And hey, the PS3 started off slow because of all the negativity it received around its pricing structure and the whole multi-tasking thing not being an option due to limits in the hardware. Look at the PS3 now. Just released ANOTHER exclusive which is destined for yet again many, MANY Game of the Year awards. It has picked up a lot over the years and being a gamer who can enjoy both worlds (Xbox 360 and the PS3), I am happy that things came around for them, since I was a PS2 fanboy. Here's to another generation of console gaming.
Here is the thing about this fallacious argument, broadband was an improvement over dial up therefore as time went on it was only natural that dial up would eventually become irrelevant and devices would drop support for it. A console that requires a constant Internet connection is NOT an improvement over a console that does not. A console that does not require a Internet connection can operate as well or better when connected online as an always online console and still play games when not connected. In a sense the always online console is technically inferior.
But the Xbox One doesn't require a constant internet connection, so...?
@Buzz7s The Xbox one requires an Internet connection every 24 hours correct? Do you know what constant means?
Xbox One Drops Behind PS4 For "Most Anticipated List" (Gamestop/EB Games Canada) It's a wonder how it ever managed to be ahead of the PS4 in the first place. Goes to show you the number of completely brain-dead sheep-sumers that live in this world. I'd be curious to see the breakdown of the regions across the globe that voted for the xbone to be on any list other than "greatest amount of blunders accumulated before it was even released" by the way...
That breakdown would be as legitimate as the poll which was on either IGN or GameStop, which showed Middle Eastern countries voting on-par with North America and Europe.
Didn't even need a crystal ball to see that coming.

Makes sense, the only people who would go for the Xbone are uninformed consumers and blind fanboy idiots. Seriously, if you still buy the Bone knowing full well all the restrictions it imposes, you deserve it. This issue goes beyond petty brand loyalty and delves into our rights as consumers. And before you say fanboy, if the tables were turned and Sony was the bad guy and Microsoft was the good guy, I would support the Xbox One, but they are not, so the choice is simple.
