Microsoft: PS4 won't make us 'change anything we've done with Xbox One'

Microsoft said recently that despite Sony's PS4 having a strong showing at E3 that they don't plan to 'change anything' with the Xbox One because of it.

If neither Sony nor the complaints wont change MS's mind, then its going to be up to sales past launch.

Likely going to be too late by then. If they're wrong anyway.

Even if the X1 sales performance turns out poorly, even then MS won't change the policies in place. More than likely they would say "Once the X1 is available in more countries the unit sales will increase." Or they will blame it on something else.

Microsoft won't blame the restrictions or requirement, just look at their response to the backlash and media.

JokesOnYou, ive been sharing PS3 games with my friends for as long as its been around. that's not a new concept... at all

dedicatedtogamers1526d ago

Post-2006, Sony was very willing and very eager to change the policies for the PS3 in an attempt to match the 360 and to please its fans.

Microsoft is pure arrogance if they are unwilling to adjust.

it sounds like your trying to convince yourself not others

you used to make good points but now your just turning into another Greenpowrz

Why do people get crucified for liking the xbone? No matter which console you get there will be pros and cons. The xbone can cause problems for some but I dont think it will affect as many people as the media and n4g community let on. Personally none of these problems really effect me in my everyday life. Which is why im getting an xbone instead of ps4. That and I just cant deal with a dualshock controller. Let the hate begin!!

FITgamer1526d ago

@JOY You could of saved some time by just saying "F&<k my rights!"

Hydrolex1526d ago

NICE ! better for Sony


Darrius Cole1526d ago

Actually, what they will probably do if the sales are poor is to kill the Xbone, if the sales don't pick up for any length of time.

"I like xbox live vs psn because of the friends I've built"

...wouldn't new systems imply a resetting of who has what brand of console (unless they eat up whatever one brand gives them)?

"Most of all I like the X1 games and what micro is trying to do vs ps4= go digital"

Xbox fanboys sure have been trying to convince themselves that Microsoft is "going digital". That delusion has been going on ever since Ps3 had Blu-ray. If Xbox One is "going digital", then why do they still have hard copies (and will likely sell more physical than digital again with games offering both, like this gen, with absolutely nothing suggesting otherwise)?

It's funny, I saw posts from you where you took a step back and basically said "wow, Microsoft is being ridiculous" and now you're right back to your trolling and convincing yourself. I thought I had underestimated you, but obviously I only underestimated your capacity for delusion.

Derpy1526d ago

The thing that I find most insulting is that M$ is basically saying that all consumers are criminals that need to be checked on every 24 hours. I see no reason to pay some company to treat me like I'm under house arrest.

@CerebralAssassin, to answer your question, when a gamer knowingly supports something that encourages loss of our rights as a consumer and a gamer, they're really no better than a scab and that gets people angry. They have the freedom to do so, but don't expect to get patted on the back for it.

M$ are not the police and they have no business acting like it. I'm going to exercise my consumer rights by saying no to their degrading product.

fr0sty1526d ago

@Jokes, Sony has been going digital for years. Full PS3 games have been on PSN for a while now. PSN games are plentiful. Imposing DRM does not equal "going digital". That's just Microsoft's bullshit spin they've put on their terrible policies.

ltachiUchiha1526d ago


I can understand that some of u like u & greenpowerz will choose xbox one over anything & thats your choice, but how do u know every friend u made friends with on xbl will feel the same? My older brother is a die hard xbox fan too but i told him everything he didnt know & he has made up his mind to buy a ps4 but is hoping that because of bad sales the xbox one will have & trust me it will be bad, that microsoft has a change of heart & dismisses the restrictions. I am fed up with them & wont be buying one & hope it fails miserably just so microsoft understands not to f**k with consumers because we can easily turn around & do the same to them. Might not hurt them but trust me, it will make them rethink about ever trying to force restrictions on us ever again.

NukaCola1526d ago

Joke said instead of a getting a high powered, less expensive, unrestricted platform dedicated first to games and the game community...he'd rather have an extremely priced, low performance cable box with endless restrictions and a big FU to the gamers. Can we mark this as trolling now?

If you wanted something unique that'd make sense but X1's differences are like comparing living in a villa on the French Riviera vs living in an apartment in North Korea just because you're friends support a prison minded dictatorship with their console.

Can't wait to see how many Xboxers realize what MS is doing and come back home to PS. You can see it in the media fan boys how hard they are justifying the X1 but at tyr end of the day you all know deep down inside that MS is 150% doing the wrong thing.

DOMination-1526d ago

To share games on the ps3 you have to install your profile on another console and you can only do that once. The X1 allows up to ten shares which you enabke from your friends list (you don't have to put your account on their console) so I will defend that one issue as its genuinely an exciting feature potentially.

Its increasingly harder to defend the other things though. Sony are really offering a more viable alternative at a cheaper price. Its difficult to argue with the facts

Angrymorgan1526d ago (Edited 1526d ago )

I may be wrong but on ps4 you can get a friend to take over your game instantly over psn so yea you can share games with friends over the net....sorta

I also like the look of x1 games.even the tv functionality but in my opinion the cons soooo outweigh the pros that it's just not cost effective to get one.
Id be poring mony down the pan.
Also im not one of those people who like a bookcase full of old games I never play so not being able to trade or give games away easily is a massive no no for me

kupomogli1526d ago (Edited 1526d ago )


You can have your account on more than two consoles. It just can't be activated to play games on more than two consoles any longer.

It's simple to get a friend to deactivate your account on his PS3 if you want another friend to activate an account and play a game with you. As long as you have friends you can trust.

nunley331526d ago

@JokesOnYou - The PS4 will have a low power state for being always updating and has an app that will work identical to smartglass plus vita for 2nd screen activities. PS4 will be download game updates, DLC store purchases, and full retail games in the background while your playing a game, I haven't heard that XB1 can do this. I wish microsoft good luck (sarcasm) because xb1 willstruggle to outsell the gamecube.

MasterOfThe12Blades1526d ago

If i want to share games with my friends i just hand them the disc!

loulou1526d ago

well, i have an xbox one on pre-order also. because of the controller and live, like this gen, it will be my main console.

ps4 like the ps3 this gen will be just for the exclusives.

disagree away.

on topic, if m$ dont change things in the next 5 months, then they will be slaughtered over the holidays.... surely just looking at the pre-orders they must know this

Ares84HU1526d ago

Good MS, keep digging that grave deeper! Clearly you are out of touch with what people actually want.

D-riders1525d ago

jokes on you, so your saying that all your friends on xbox360 are getting an Xbox one.Over the ps4, its a new gen. Then always on doesn't mean always updating, the ps3 does auto updates now. Every device should be the same way by now not sure if the 360 does that. But the PS4 does its a learning system. which means it updates all the time. Kinect being forced is not good thing. its just a gimmick to the system. what if the ps4 has kinect abilities, doesn't that make the system less attractive.

Also just so you know MS did the same thing with exclusives with the 360 and we see how that turned out.

maniacmayhem1525d ago

JokesOnYou got marked again for trolling?

Am I missing something here? All he is doing is explaining why he likes the Xbox 1.

Has this site really dissolved into this?

Oh please. All JOY does is troll.

"X1 always on= always updating"

Come on now...

starchild1525d ago

How ridiculous. I'm a PC gamer that Is only buying a PS4 and VASTLY prefer the PS4 over the Xbox One, but the fact that JokesOnYou guy got marked for trolling just goes to show how pathetic this site has become. He wasn't trolling at all. He has a right to his preference just the same as any of you. Sony is awesome in gaming and the Ps3 and PS4 are outstanding consoles, but their fan base stinks.
