Is Xbox One the Next GameCube?

Pre-orders so far are skewed heavily toward first-party titles, much like the GameCube. Will the system fail because of it?

More like the Dreamcast, but w/o the groundbreaking exclusive software.

StinkiWan1993d ago

Why Dreamcast over the GameCube? Interesting thought, but why do you draw the distinction?

theWB271993d ago

Cause Maria is one of the biggest Sony fans on this site. So comparing to the Dreamcast lets Maria feel like Sony is going to crush the X1 so bad it's going to be Micro's last system.

When any logical person knows out of the big three..Micro would be last to HAVE to bail out of the console business if things didn't go quite so well.

Ps4 will outsell the X1 because it sells better in other countries. But where Xbox sells well, it will do so this gen also.

I'd compare it to the Saturn, not the Dreamcast. Dreamcast was a "hail mary" pass for SEGA. Saturn was a console that SEGA got arrogant about and assumed everyone would want it despite the flaws and despite the higher price.

Dreamcast is remembered fondly. Its more like the 3DO.

Gotta get my jap DC out of storage...

What is the PS4's groundbreaking exclusive software ?

Oh yeah sorry I forgot. Knack of course !

majiebeast1993d ago (Edited 1993d ago )

Whats the groundbreaking xbone exclusive software? Ryse! Press nothing to awesome.

abzdine1993d ago

Forza and Ryse, tell me about groundbreaking exclusives at launch!!

Clarence1993d ago

Yeah and Titanfall is a groundbreaking exclusive oh wait it's not a exclusive it's on the PC.

Waller1992d ago

PS4's software will be Gaikai.

Xbox One's software will be its instant nature.

Software does not necessarily mean games.

X1 will sell just as good as ps4, alot of millions . Dont believe me?wait and see.

mcstorm1993d ago

I agree. I remember being on this site when sony showed off the psv and everyone was saying it would walk all over the 3ds. Look how that turned out.

No one knows what will and will not sell well until they are out and just because one starts off slow dose not mean it won't sell well later on in its gen. Look at the ps3 for that.

IM not expecting both console to come flying out the gates as there are still big name games for both consoles and the ps3 has gt6 on the way to.

For me the start of this gen is about the Xbox one and Wiiu as they offer me more gamea that I want over the ps4 but I will pick a ps4 up later on in the gen.

abzdine1993d ago (Edited 1993d ago )

i have to disagree with you my friend, nothing can be compared to Dreamcast!!
And i cant compare it with GC either cause i actually bought a GC and X1 will never make it to my house!!

I dont know why people go too far to compare X1 with different devices from different manufacturers...

As thing are right now, Xbox One for me is a repetition of the first Xbox, no more no less! Looks kinda the same as well..

TheDivine1992d ago

I'd say its more like the ps3. Sony was arrogant and launched with a high price, focus on media, and thought everyone would take their shit. Ms tried to force online alienating most the market, is higher than the ps4, but it does have a good launch lineup which the ps3 lacked so its not in as bad of a position especially now that they reneged on the online drm and blocking used games. It's going to be a fun gen for all 3 consoles if you ask me.

I loved the GameCube
I don't think X1 will be nearly as awesome .

Fireseed1993d ago

Well it is introducing a lot of technology that people are scared of and don't fully understand. So under that guise the adoption rate would be pretty low. But they have brought it under the monicker of the new Xbox which has very high amount of fandom in the US.

from the beach1993d ago

The first party launch stuff is great so obviously people are snapping it up.

I've got Ryse preordered but I'll probably get Watch Dogs soon after.

MariaHelFutura1993d ago

I find fascinating that people are so into Dead Rising, Crytek games and Insomniac games.

- So many have disagreed w/ me for saying Dead Rising was an amazing game, now it's a system seller.

- Crytek games get put down constantly for their lack of depth, Heavy Rain for QTEs, and now Cryteks QTE game is a system seller.

- Insomniac has been dissed forever on here and now that their last 4 games (R2, R3, All 4 1 and Fuse) haven't been very good, Sunset Overdrive is the going to be the best.

theWB271993d ago


-So many people disagreed with you about Dead Rising and now it's a system seller. Or it could the people in your bubble didn't agree with you. Step outside of that bubble and you'll Dead Rising is pretty adored by alot of people. No one is saying it's a system seller but it is a good exclusive.

-Crytek gets put down for no depth. It's already been debunked by SO MANY people that the button prompts aren't mandatory. It was sped up for the debut of the game. No one said it's a system seller.but it looks like a good exclusive.

-Insomniac is getting dissed? Or are people disappointed cause they know they're better than what those games were? Sunset Overdrive sounds promising is what I usually hear.

I find it so fascinating how someone can be so loyal to a brand who doesn't know who you are. I will say this...get over it. The X1 isn't as bad as you want to think it is.

nick3091993d ago

Ever played dead rising 1? Yea 2 wasnt as good but 1&3 have the same feel.. I was at e3 and it was a good game. So what if its not coming to ps4. Im glad theres still exclusivity from third party publishers. Sony dont really get third party exclusives, just console exclusive indies... Both ms &sony will succeed regardless of console prices. Alot of people enjoy motion gaming, alot of people hate it, but it still sells. Its really like comparing coca cola &pepsi, one will like this one will like that, and one might like both & itll still sell.

PFFT1992d ago (Edited 1992d ago )

I have no idea why people still use the QTE's in RYSE as an excuse to put it down. Even after its already been confirmed that as you said its not mandatory. Ahh but you see since its not Sony news they dont take the time to make a little research on the matter. As for Dead Rising 3 its gonna be amazing. They are just butthurt cause it wont see a release on their system of choice. No more no less.

You might as well compare it to the original Xbox. The GameCube sold almost as much as that.

I said this before, anything that wasn't a PS2 sold poorly that gen.
