Five things that will make or break Xbox One

Ninemsn games writes: There's no doubting that Microsoft and Sony are in for a hell of tussle come Christmas 2013. The technology giants are in a never-ending battle to one-up each other at every opportunity, rejigging Xbox One and PlayStation 4 philosophies respectively to remain in tune with gamer demand.

It's going to be a tough task to better the competitor: unlike the current generation, which saw the Xbox 360 released a whole year before the PlayStation 3 and Nintendo's Wii, Xbox One and PlayStation 4 are going head-to-head at the same time, offering similar console experiences separated only by each company's range of exclusive games.

Both Microsoft and Sony need to be on their game (excuse the pun) one hundred percent of the time: Microsoft simply cannot afford another hardware design gaffe like it did with the Xbox 360 at its launch — which rendered more than 20 percent of consoles unusable — while Sony needs to avoid another online attack that saw its PlayStation Net...

I'm an Xbox fan, and even I'm about to kick that guy off a bridge. Might consider ignoring. He created his account today and senselessly trolls every article in favor of the XboxOne.

I like things both on ps side and Xbox side I just heavily prefer ps4 at this point because of how Microsoft tried to go about doing business

I think the xbox one will be fine. In fact I think all 3 will sell well. I don't care who sells more but like any gaming fan I want to see all 3 do well because if one decides to drop out then this is bad for the business as having 3 consoles helps each one of them keeps them trying to out do each other.

For me this new gen is about the WiiU xbox one and 3DS but that dose not mean I don't think the PSV and PS4 will be no good I have just had to make a decision on what consoles to get as I have less time to play them now and this was the best option for me as it has more of the games I want.

"Xbox 360's Xbox Live service required a yearly subscription of close to $100. " Where is the author getting his Xbox Live Gold cards from? He's getting majorly ripped off paying that much. I've never paid more than $39.99 for a year of Xbox Live. I refuse to pay more than that. I always get it on sale.
