MS set themselves up for this, MS committed suicide and Sony just lit them on fire and fed them to the sharks and then the sharks annihilated them, then Sony revisited them 5 years later and showed them a sales chart... you can guess who won, out numbered from 4 to 1

^gifs pretty much sums up the damage...

they ended it early because the newly appointed Microsoft's Damage Control Division (MDCD) asked Amazon to stop it in order to prevent further damage to its reputation.

43k people? yup, very representative of how many internet console fanboys there are on the planete. Over 200 Million consoles where sold last generation.

so lets see. 40 000 ÷200 000 000 = 0.0002

0.0002 × 100 = 0.02%

So that's 0.02% of the people who like to argue about video games that are supposed to represent the market. Yeah, very logical. If I lose my internet do you know what I will do with my Xbox one? I will shut it off and play my Playstation 4.
DialgaMarine  +   971d ago
@ Montrealian I'm guessing you don't understand the concept of statistics, do you? There's no way on earth, heaven, or hell that Amazon could have recieved a vote from every single person who bought a PS3 or 360. That's why they set up a table comprised of completely random people to come to random percentage. That percentage is nothing more than an average that says for the average game who shops through Amazon, they will be more likely to buy the PS4 over XBone, as only gamers were following this poll. Does it state for a facet that PS4 will outsell XBone 19 to 1? Of course not. It just gives us general idea of how many people in that demographic prefer PS4 to XBone. It's a random statistic. Nothing more. Nothing less.
Montrealien  +   971d ago
You lose all crédibilité with me the second you say Xbone. I was just pointing out a fact, and a funny one at that.

edit: I take that back, that was not nice of me. You seem like a really cool guy.

You can actually still pre-order an Xbox One on Amazon U.S.

The PS4 launch edition, by contrast, is completely sold out and according to Amazon receipt of a PS4 at launch is not guaranteed at this point!

PS4: 38,984

This is good news for both gamers and the consumers.

The Xbox One deserves the bad reputation that it has not only with gamers but with the "casual" consumers also.

The Xbox One implements user restrictions that are far worse than anything that has came before it with hardline DRM and 24HR CHECK IN.

Its also obvious that the core gamers have no use for the required Kinect either.

The Xbox One will not be Microsofts Dreamcast because that great home console is highly regarded by hardcore gamers.

The Xbox One will be microsofts CDi.
wastedcells  +   971d ago
This is very impressive. Nobody could have predicted this. What a crazy story this next gen has been.
NextGen24Gamer  +   971d ago
I was at Gamestop today and I asked them how they feel about the Xbox One and the trade in restrictions. He said that he pre ordered an xbox one and was at E3. He also stated that Microsoft is ALLOWING people to trade in their xbox one games. Once someone installs the game to their console it uninstalls it from your console. He said he actually talked with MS rep at E3 and they have notified Gamestop that they will indeed allow trade ins. That is part of the reason you need to be always online. Also, the family share is another reason you need to have always online. This way 10 people can share their library of games with eachother. Which exciting to say the least. They gamer who installed the game, can play his games anytime he wants. The other 9 people he is sharing the game with can play any game in the library at any given time with no time limit restrictions. Only two (the owner of the game) and one friend can play a single player game at the same time. This is the future of game sharing. No longer do you need to hand your physical copy over to a friend and wait for him to give it back and hope he doesn't damage it in the process. Those days are gone. The stone age is over. While some will be left behind...The gamers with absolutely no internet or the gamers who enjoy the old fashion way of doing things...But for us gamers who are ready for the future and all it offers...It's an exciting time.

Also, I believe if we take this poll 1 month before the consoles launch...The results would be a lot different. There is a lot of confusion and misinformation out about the xbox one an it's mostly Microsoft's fault. But, I'm confident that gamers will know a lot more as the months pass.

Random GS employees attended E3? How fortunate for them. I have an nice anecdotal story as well. 2 in fact. Went to one GameStop Wendsday and the guy working there said the stuff on X1 didn't bother him, he preordered it, and they were out of preorders. Went to another on Friday, guy said they sold out of X1 preorders because they weren't given many, but he isn't getting many people asking about them. Moral of the story, anecdotal stories from a random GS employee are rather pointless to enforce a point, because they are just opinions or made up BS, for the most part at least.

Also I find it rather odd that MS would give a random employee of GS information that they haven't given to the press. It's not like GS got press badges, so if this guy did happen to attend E3(which I will say he did because I can't prove otherwise) it seems he either misunderstood, or is full of sh*t.

MS would make that policy known to the know...the people who have the ability to get it out to people other than the ones that happen to wonder into the store. It seems like this would alleviate a lot of the pressure they're under right now. Not ideal as there are other issues surrounding used games, but at least it's a start for them to actually clarify the issues.

One last anecdotal story for you. While I was in GS Friday, both the manager, and her area supervisor(whatever title they use for it), said they have no clue what MS current trade in policy is, or how it will affect the stores.

Otherwise, MS 10 friends/family shared game thing sound dubious at best. It seems like that would be counter-productive to limiting used game sales, as you'd have more people doing just that. I'm not going to sing MS praises until I know more about that. Given what they've done so far, I doubt it's going to be as awesome as you're making it sound.

Otherwise, this poll is about in line with other similar polls floating around. It shows current interest in the system. A lot can happen between now and launch. What will happen 1 month before launch is unknown, and you're guess is as good as mine.

@rainslacker - "Also I find it rather odd that MS would give a random employee of GS information that they haven't given to the press."

They didn't. All of this was confirmed in multiple places. The only problem is everyone is passed caring. They're all straight out for Microsoft's throat.

Microsoft has confirmed multiple times that trade ins will be allowed at "participating retailers" (Gamestop, GAME, CEX, pretty much any game chain store) and that games published by Microsoft will not have an extra fee put on top of them if you buy them used. Trade a game in, its removed from your account. Buy a used game, its added to your account. Done. Publishers can charge extra for used, same as they can on the PS4. Its likely that none of them will.

As I say, all freely available information that has been floating around for about a week or more, but people have their ears closed. Probably fair enough.

The sharing games to 10 people thing is amazing. My friend buys GRID 2 and shares it to me so we can play each other online? That's just added value every time he buys a game, and he gets added value every time I buy one. But HEY...the console costs $100 more, so screw Microsoft? If my friend buys 2 games that I don't have and that I might like to play but don't want to shell $60 each on, that's $120 saved. Yeah, the Xbox One truly sucks alright.

I don't like the 24-hour check-in thing, but the rest is just fine with me.

rainslacker  +   971d ago

Fair enough. I had to reread his post, but yeah, in the sense that MS is being so kind to allow us to use an approved trade in center, he is right. Generally when I see trade in I still hold on to the fact that that means there isn't any restriction on what we can do with the game, so I could trade it to a friend, then he could pass it on, etc. But I will concede, in the context Elite was speaking of, he's not wrong.

I'm very skeptical about the sharing thing. I think if it works as most people that are promoting it hopes it works, then it will be an amazing feature, and worthy of praise.

However, given how restrictive the console is in general, and the fact that MS has really not detailed it, even though being asked about it multiple times, makes me believe it's not going to be the feature that everyone is hoping it to be.

I also imagine this feature being up to the publisher. The feature itself seems counter-productive to restricting used games, as you've basically just had 10 people buy one game. Sony has had game sharing for quite a while. It was abused. Sony reduced the number of people that could use it from 5 to 2. So again, this shows me that publishers aren't going to be too keen on this feature. You even illustrate my point with your description of how it's an added value to the consumer.

I hope I'm wrong though, as I do agree it has the potential to be the best feature of the X1.

I have no problem with the price of the console. I would have spent that much easily if it offered what I want without the restrictions. Not even sure why you tried to make it seem like that was my argument. I haven't criticized the price once in any comment I've made regarding the X1.

One word sums your post. RESTRICTIONS. And you are a fool if you think they are perks.

Finally, either you made up some info, or you are even more fool for believing random guy over Microsoft announced, explained and confirmed restrictions. Only one people plays a game at given time.

Anyway, -bubble, disagree and I'll look for an ignore function around.

In an interview with angry joe Major Nelson said something in the lines of: Family members can check it out // It's not like you buy a copy for 10 members.

There's something important that they aren't telling us about this feature and the sentences above refer to that unsaid part.

Beginning at 3.59.
wellard  +   970d ago
Thats a stupid justification to be always online. WHat were ms thinking when they made that lie up? Ms: "lets just tell them that they have to be always on so they can trade games" as apposed to how its done now where you can just TRADE GAMES!!

Greedy MS dropped the ball and tried to take advantage of us all, now lets sit back and watch what happens to greedy corporations when people stand up, join together and say NO.
moparful99  +   970d ago
All of that DRM stuff aside the thing that I really take exception to is the online check in nonsense.. I personally believe that this policy is an effort to force people to buy live so they can have 100% Live subscription. Its all about profit.. No matter what lame excuse Microsoft feeds you that this will benefit gamers its just a ploy to increase profit margins.

Now on to this "Game Sharing" feature.. Microsoft clearly stated 10 FAMILY members.. Not friends or neighbors etc.. Meaning there is some kind of mechanic in place that will not allow you to share games with anyone you choose.. More then likely its restricted to one console or a home network.. Secondly you cant buy a game, gift it to a friend and you both play it.. Once you give it to a friend you cant play it anymore.. These policies are very anti consumer and it saddens me to see people justifying it for Microsoft.. SAD
indysurfn  +   970d ago
@KMxRetro Your missing a major "DETAIL" on sharing games. Whenever you install a game it has to check online immediately to see if it that particular disc is active on another machine. If it is then only the latest one can play it, so if that person you want to play against will be stopped. Microsoft clearly, (vp Phil Harrison) said only one can be active at a time.

But if you want to share a xbox360 game 10 times you can. In fact you can share it a infinite amount of times. Just like PS3 and PS4 and Atari, and Genesis, and n64, and sega Saturn, and dreamcast, and 3do, and Snes, and well my finger is getting tired so it is easier to just say NOT xbone.

And when the servers for ps3, and xbox360 go offline permantly your ps3, and 360 will still play games. When the servers for dreamcast, and PS2, and xbox(original) went offline you are still able to play your games offline. NOT so with xboxone, every game becomes unplayable, forever!

Do you even understand statistics? A sample size of 40.000 would give an incredibly precise estimate. It's not the problem, it's rather the sample selection. Had the selection been diverse the polls result would've been 99.5% correct. This one isn't though but what we can take away is that the hardcore gamer is utterly disappointed with the X1.

How did you think they did let's say a poll before an election? Would they call every single resident of what ever country and ask of their opinion? 2000 people is more than enough to accurately represent a whole nations sentiments.
MestreRothN4G  +   971d ago
Actually I don't think you do understand statistics.

So you're saying that the poll is accurate because it had 40.000 voters that access and have accounts at that site, have seen the poll, care to answer, have an opinion on this matter, right?

Because this represents the entire market instead of some specific profiles, right?

We all get that the ps4 is way better in most aspects and the most liked, but you should really read and think before bragging about statistic methods.

devwan  +   971d ago
Yes but when it comes to consoles and fanbois, there's usually something competitive about it, rather than outright humiliation.

The pulling of this poll will only lead to more comment on it and the chance the big sites will draw even more attention to it rather than letting it run its course, as there's something quite a bit more juicy about the reasons why than merely confirming what we already know (ie ps4 is by far the machine of choice for early adopters).

Sometimes it's just better to suck it up rather than putting your other foot in it, and if ms pressure had anything to do with the poll ending early, well... let's see how much comment is made around the big gaming sites.
UNGR  +   971d ago
If anything the poll was Sony's from the beginning just from the retailer alone. The Xbox One needs an internet connection, people living in the middle of nowhere would easily jump ship, and order one due to the lack of stores, and decent internet connection to run the device once every 24 hours (my cousin lives on a farm with decent internet, but his data cap is horrid, an X1 simply wouldn't work). If the poll was in GameStop it might be a bit different due to it being in internet heavy areas, regardless, Sony is doing well. I'll be happy to pick up both this winter.

Now now Hicken...since every polls is pretty much giving the same results, it's obvious it's the internet. The people that don't have internet obviously aren't voting. They probably won't be buying the X1 either...or at least playing games on the X1, so their vote doesn't really matter.

I mean Hicken...come on...even you can admit that it's not possible that a vast majority of the internet gaming community hates the X1. I mean they are on the internet, so obviously the restrictions on connection don't affect them.

Try to be a little open to the possibility at least.

Well it seems as though only around 41k people voted. I didn't even know about this poll, but then again I don't have Amazon liked on FB. I buy everything from them, though.

If the PS4 had only gotten approximately 4% more, then the Xbox One would have been left with just ONE percent :)

This smells fishy

No, its a direct result of consumer response to XB1 restrictions and price. Even without restrictions, you are still paying $100 more for an inferior console simply because it has Kinect.

Perhaps i never made myself clear. I was referring to Amazons sudden decision to stop votes early. I'm no conspiracy theorist but something about this (Amazon decision to stop votes early)smells a bit off.

Who cares about it being a 'conspiracy theory'.

Because many conspiracy theories are conspiracy facts.

Conspiracy is human nature, and no we haven't gotten rid of it.

That's why if you go into any court, one of the cases being tried has something to do with a..... wait for it...


Conspiracy to commit murder, or defraud, or whatever.

The simple fact is, it's a conspiracy theory that conspiracy theories are untrue.

I can buy Facebook likes and accounts off the shelf. Wouldn't take a genius to set up a voting bot.

Not saying that's happened - the Xbox One probably got whooped fair and square - but Android is right. This does seem a little strange. A console that's in the top 5 of every preorder chart of every major retailer only pulls in 5% of the vote? Even thought the PS4 is at the top of those charts, it doesn't seem right or logical.

but you have no idea how much MORE the PS4 has pre-sold. It can only reach #1 but could be (in theory) millions of units ahead. While Xbone at #4 etc is quantifiable as 'hasn't sold as many as the Last of us or Animal crossing' (UK chart).

Xbox One is just THAT unpopular. And I think many people forgot to cancel their pre-orders for it but will soon.. haha.
