Microsoft: 'We Feel Really Good About What Xbox One Is'

Following significant changes to its DRM and connectivity policies, Microsoft is happy with what Xbox One has become. Speaking on Major Nelson Radio, Microsoft's chief product officer Marc Whitten lauded the company's decision, briefly discussed the future, and said, “We feel really good, frankly, about what Xbox One is.” (Xbox One)

They felt really good about the online-required and the "family share" and the DRM, too. They insisted that "DRM can't just be switched off" and that the Xbox One was the future. DON'T YOU WANT TO JOIN THEM IN THE FUTURE?

This is a company with no vision and no passion for gaming.

Don't give them your money.

I can do with my money as I please.
frjoethesecond  +   960d ago
@Convas. True as that may be, I'd suggest you don't do stupid things with your money. Things like buying drugs, porn or an Xbox One.
ssj27  +   960d ago
well yeah you are been paid by m$ lol

getting a xbone is as bad as buying drugs, fair lol

Don't buy porn please.... its all over the interwebz for FREEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE
darthv72  +   960d ago
my addiction to gaming is too great to let something like a little bit of controversy stop me from buying into the next gen platforms.

To do so would limit me and the games that appeal to me. There are appealing games on all platforms and as such....I gotta have them all.
imdaboss1  +   960d ago
i like competition but M$ is just trying to fuck with gamers..They can implement DRM as they please on the xboner..Dont matter if its a patch another update will just bring it back in the future..dont be a fool and waste money on a business that is full of compulsive liar and snake around consumer/gamers..I hope they vanish from the gaming industry and have nintendo fight it out with sony to keep them on their toes..

More like

"We feel really good, frankly, about what Xbox One is. Except we wanted it to be DRM restricted and check in every 24 hours. But now we feel really good about what Xbox One is. Except, yeah we still don't really know what our vision is. But we still feel good. That's a good thing. Right? Right?"

You seem to hate everything MS does. If you don't like it then don't come to Xbox stories it is as simple as that. Enjoy Sony and stop hating on MS.

Everyone that buys an xbone is supporting communism.
Army_of_Darkness  +   959d ago
so ms feels good about xbone huh??
Do they even know what xbone is suppose to be still??
NewZealander  +   959d ago
damn straight convas, im sick of idiots on here trying to tell me what not to do with my money.

preordered :D
Timesplitter14  +   960d ago
MS, I think it's a bit weird that you feel the need to tell us this
S2Killinit  +   960d ago
So true. There is a Persian proverb, it says:
you tell me once and I believe you
you tell me twice and I doubt you
you tell me three times and I Know you are lying.
Microsoft, your reputation proceeds you, go home gamers are tired of your BS
darthv72  +   960d ago
the word is "precedes" not "proceeds" just a simple typo but i knew what you meant. ;-)
CerebralAssassin  +   960d ago
Why is the system bad? I dont want to hear about DRM bs. It is what it is. Deal with it. What makes this system bad?
Burrito26a  +   960d ago
I really dont think its bad. Zoidberg reference. Edit- The policies are bad.

The system itself isn't bad, but it has nothing over the PS4 except its price (as in... it's 100$ over the PS4's price)

The PS4 was designed with a x86 PC architecture, making it the easiest to develop for between the two consoles. It also allows self-publishing for indies which is a massive bonus.

X1, on the other hand, only has Kinect. Let's not pretend it's actually something worthwile.

But actually I'm really curious. What do you think X1 has over the PS4?

imdaboss1  +   960d ago
you dont think its bad? you pay 500 dollars for a system that basically you dont own..M$ control everything you do with yours games too..DRM will be alive with xboner and its still actually is till they release the patch..Just think about it all the games and system you invested in will just be a BRICK..NO VALUE! cant sell it or nothing..

CerebralAssassin  +   959d ago
Looking at this generation purely as a consumer both systems a fine. Personally I like the look of the xbone. I like that I can use it as a dvr and also record my gameplay with it. I like being able to use the kinect to navigate my system. As novelty as it may be. I use the espn app and ufc app. Im oooking forward to seeing what they will do with the deal with nfl. And the new tv series halo. 300,000 servers is impressive and I feel online will still be dominated by xbox. Not ps.

Microsoft is the laughing stock of the entire gaming industry. They should quit talking before it gets worse for them.

is a water cooler .. well that's what she said lol
I see it more as a 24/7 home security surveillance camera so the big brothers an watch you without missing one heart bit of your lovely life.
sashimi  +   960d ago
Pretty sure they don't feel good about the Xbox One after they were forced to remove the drm.

Gamesgbkiller  +   960d ago
Well , they did embrace the DRM before.

So why they switch it off ?

I guess they are not happy now.
-MD-  +   960d ago
They need to just re-reveal this thing with a whole new name. What a cluster**k.
dedicatedtogamers  +   960d ago
Yep, but they won't.

That right there shows they have no commitment to gaming. If they cared about gaming, they would delay the system for a few months (to also work out the production issues) and launch in the spring.

But Microsoft is so obsessed with rushing this thing to market, they don't care if there are consequences.
True_Samurai  +   960d ago
I feel good knowing I won't regret paying for the X1
CerebralAssassin  +   960d ago
I will enjoy mine very much. Ps4 isnt currently offering me anything im excited about.
A-laughing-horse  +   960d ago
Besides another garbage infamous game and killzone.
CerebralAssassin  +   959d ago
Infamous actually is one of my favorite games. Infamous 2 was awesome. But your right. There isnt much else in terms of games. Plus ps4 wont have titanfall!! That game will be sick!!!
vikingland1  +   960d ago
well said, MS & SONY will have my money. Because I don't want to miss all the good games these systems will offer. Heck even the release date games look good to me. And MS did reverse the DRM even if it was about money the DRM is gone either way.

Dont know why you ps4 fan kids think the ps4 is that more powerfull, they both have an 8 qcore amd jag processor. So far what sony has show in graphic quality fails to impress me. Ps4 sales may be high this year then x1. Next year x1 will shine in gaming glory , n ill bet x1 sales will be higher then ps4.;-)
sic_chops  +   960d ago
Then after that year of gaming glory, they will drop core gamers again like a bad habit and just put out kinect stuff just like they did with the 360. I'm enjoying The Last of Us on my PS3 right now which will be game of the year. You still playing Halo?
Kyur4ThePain  +   960d ago
Interesting. I'm not sure they even *know* what the XBOX One is at this stage.
I hope they can shuffle things around for it all to now magically work without the whole DRM / check-in integration part. If not, XBOX owners might be in for a rough ride in the early stages as MS try to figure things out.
Convas  +   960d ago
So, what I'm getting is (1) Other people should define what my purchase habits are and (2) I'm also working for MS.

Alrighty Internet, I guess that's that.
cyclindk  +   960d ago
Well at least you admit it, so here.

(1) Preorder a PS4

(2) Sell your stock and quit before their value plummets further.
sic_chops  +   960d ago
We aren't trying to define your purchase habits. Maybe some people just don't wanna see M$ nickel and dime you and set you in a room full of smoke and mirrors. I do though so good luck.
cyclindk  +   960d ago
I'm still waiting for some amazing "cloud computing" demonstration... in my eyes, THAT would be the only advantage it has and I have yet to see anything concrete, or even "vapory" for that matter.
sic_chops  +   960d ago
They just use that as a PR spin since their ram is inferior and apparently they have had to underclock the cpu. They have to come up with something. Sony said the ps4 can do cloud computing as well. They're just not betting farm on it.
RavageX  +   959d ago
MS has had a bad habit of this since the first reveal. They talk about things but either don't show them in action and don't explain things clearly at all.

They never went in detail over who the "retailers" were that would buy your used games when it was an issue, and as you'vbe said they haven't shown anything related to this "cloud" they keep talking about.
kohlgamer  +   960d ago
They feel good about an inferior console that cost more because of a camera most people dont want. Way to go MS
Enigma_2099  +   960d ago
What it is was fine, it's what you were doing with it that didn't make sense.
defyenz  +   960d ago
I feel good about it too. You got my support no matter what. Some people would say that I'm an idiot,I'd say " fuck off and die". It's my choice and i'm sticking with it.As Mr. Spock would say "LIVE LONG and PROSPER, BITCHES"
RavageX  +   959d ago
No matter what eh? You've skipped the Dark Side and went straight into the abyss. Have fun there.
buynit  +   960d ago
Ok... So how bout we just start over.. Lets do a re-reveal so that i onow exactly what im getting
defyenz  +   960d ago
I was content with the way it was.The changes they did was for the thousands of babies in nurseries around the world crying and whining in synchronized passion.That's not even including the sony Ya' still got my vote MS.Now,let's play.It's $449.right? :D

If hitler was alive he would support the beg box 180
cyclindk  +   959d ago
Well not to contradict you or unintentionally come off as a Nazi supporter, but the germans actually had some of the most advanced technology of any military during WWII and the Xbox One is far from being the most advanced, but if what you meant was a failing strategic plan than yes there are similarities between these two subjects. Namely Hitler and whoever is running the whole Xbox debacle right now.

I am sure they would see eye to eye on many things... The whole totalitarian sort of control and checking in, DRM, et cetera.
urwifeminder  +   959d ago
Me to cant wait mine is reserved still seems popular going by the amount of articles so that's a good thing see you on live xboxone.

"Microsoft: 'We Feel Really Good About What Xbox One Is'"

And therein lies the problem from the start. The console is supposed to please your market/consumer/fans feel good, not necessarily you. Had you put your customers first you wouldn't be in this predicament.
dcortz2027  +   959d ago
That's the problem right there. Microsoft always put themselves ahead of their fanbase.
