Opinion: How Microsoft can win back the consumer

onPause writes:

E3 2013 has not been friendly to Microsoft. They announced their game licensing policy a few days before E3, and followed that up with a mediocre press conference. On top of all that negative press, it seems like the Microsoft executives have not been briefed on some core features of Xbox One, leading to much confusion for both the press and consumers.

The story is too old to be commented.

Ain't going to happen.

The Xbox One is a system that is:

* Massively weaker than the PS4

* Built from the core around an expensive peripheral that almost no one wants

* Designed around dreams of massive revenue from paid media services that make the console not viable for a large part of the world's console markets

* Already driven away huge numbers of developers and created hostility and animosity from existing developers

In many ways the mind boggling screw ups by the incompetent clowns running the Xbox project for Microsoft are masking the fundamentally fatal design decisions that aren't ever going to change.

These damage control articles about how Microsoft can 'fix' the Xbox One fiasco are like someone fiddling with a broken car stereo while their vehicle is plunging off a mountain road.

The Xbox One is unfix-able. Sure Microsoft can fiddle with their absurd DRM problems, but the fundamentally fatal problems with the system aren't going to go away:

* The weak graphics hardware compared to the PS4 isn't going to change this close to release. The BS about 'teh cloud' somehow making up for the weak Xbox One hardware has been meet with howls of laughter from gamers.

* The Kinect garbage is built into the very core of the system and can't just be dropped. And it is going to continue to drive up the price of the console for the life of the system compared to the PS4
