Should Microsoft delay the Xbox One Launch | OmniGamer

As we all know Microsoft and the Xbox One have had a lot of issues with the console launch and the console hasn't even launched yet! I personally know of quite a few people that were once Xbox fan boys/girls that have already pre-ordered the PS4. I believe that at this point Microsoft needs to take drastic action…. DELAY THE RELEASE OF THE XBOX ONE but my friend and coworker feels differently. (Microsoft, Next-Gen, Xbox One)

Nah, let them go ahead and release the thing.
NatureOfLogic  +   427d ago
Xbox One has so many issues that a delay would be the best approach for the consumers or Xbox fans to pan out some of the problems with the console. The only reason MS will not delay, is the fear of giving PS4 a headstart. It's becoming more clear by the day that MS is clearly rushing their console out to compete with Sony.

Fanboyism aside, I think MS understands that Xbox 360 launched a year of ahead of PS3(with all it's launch issues) and was still out sold by PS3. I believe they're not as confident as Sony was in Playstation when they chose to delay PS3. It clear that Xbox One is rushed only to compete with PS4. A delay would mean no software patch, no kinect requirement and maybe a price reduction/ram upgrade. The lack of first party games and third party exclusives is also evident of a rushed launch. This is just my opinion on the topic.

People tend to exaggerate heavily. The Xbox One don't have so many issues. The only issues I see right now is the price(which is due to the inclusion of Kinect) and the specs. What else is there need to be fixed? The DRM and used game crap is gone.

Building a functional X1 without Kinect shouldn't take long. Far as the specs goes, increasing them really isn't necessary.
georgeenoob  +   427d ago
So many issues? You need to exit that Sony fantasy land of yours.

You don't even state any issues in your post to support your statement. Go ahead and try to state some I'd love to hear it. Probably the same Sony fanboy crap you guys love crying about like "kinect will spy on you".

@NatureOfLogic:
If as I suspect Kinect has been nothing but a marketing record device since it was first announced, then MS isn't going to be getting rid of it anytime soon. Though they don't have always online now they're still stressing online features, the cloud, so Kinect can still do what it was meant to do, which is to help with advertising.

People really exaggerated , when you factor in people buying ps3 for a blu ray player solely on top of who'll Asian market refusing to buy Xbox 360 for no reason other than it was 100% catered to them and the sales were last released as being within a million units of each other not really a big deal. Last gen wii won need I say more Bout people's purchasing decisions ... People
Mocked ms for not caring about gamers yet MS brought Netflix Nd the app centric approach to
Gamers. And Sony followed in toe. Same with this gen, all
You hear is about MS talking about sports and tv yet last gen Sony brought nfl Sunday ticket to ps3( great feature btw). It's all

@natureoflogic

I have both PS3 and 360.....and what you are saying doesn't make a whole lot of sense.....why?

PS2 sold around 150 million, Xbox Original around 20 million....

360 and PS3 have sold around 80 million each.....

Do you really think that Sony wanted to lose the amount of market share that had in one generation?

It's hilarious that FB's criticize the other company whilst being blind to their preferred consoles mistakes ( which both companies have made).

I think the PS4 has done a fantastic job so far but there are still questions i have regarding their online services as they have been very quiet about when things will launch with gaikai and i also think they could have issues around their software at launch....hope i'm wrong, but we'll see...

The best thing Sony has done IMO with PS4 is fix the mistakes they made last gen....launch at the same time or first, make a developer friendly console, cross game chat, improve the controller design and ship with a headset!!!!

MS have done a terrible job with their messaging so far but i do have faith in their online services and software....you only have to look at the upgrades they have made to the dashboard over the course of this gen.....in amongst some concerns.....

There is nothing to suggest there rushing it out...

and tehre is no problems with the console just some PR disaster in explaining stuff...

and if they were going by the previous gen they wouldnt worry about releasing early as although the ps3 eventually outsold the Xbox360 MS still had way more profit and money out of the thing..

hell until a few years ago sony were making a loss on each ps3 sold and were relying on Software sales.

and X1 has more games than ps4 at launch and showed exclusive games at E3..

when you said fanboysim aside you clearly havnt done any research aside from n4g which is pretty muuch all sony pro news and ms neg news... get off n4g and go do some actual research into whats what and youll realise how much is wrong in ur comment

He argued that Xbox One had more launch games, which is simply untrue. You can not play warframe, Diablo 3 or DC Universe Online on Xbox One(these are games for those in denial). Xbox One might have more day one launch exclusives so far, but PS4 have more games available over Xbox One on launch day. Prove me wrong if you can.
fermcr  +   427d ago
So many issues ???

The only issue i see now is the forced inclusion of Kinect, and that is easily resolved with a software update.

The smartest thing Microsoft could do now (from my point of view) is release a cheaper version of the X1 without Kinect, maybe even a bit cheaper then the PS4.

Well its easy to just delay the console, but then they risk in giving sony the easy win. At this point production of the console is probably in full circle to meet the demands for holiday season. Console specs im sure finalized and in production, however if there is one concern it might been in the software department. DRM, family share was deeply rooted in the infrastructure of the os, so its possible a significant amount of it have to be recoded. My other concern, although is a rumor, is that APU may get overclocked, although this might give it a performance boost, it also produces alot more heat. Microsoft never shied away for releasing untested product, but its hard to say what the correct approach is when your competitor is release their console within the same window and has been gaining momentum since E3.

Death  +   427d ago
Both Sony and Microsoft had games running on PC's and dev systems. This is not uncommon this early in a console lifecycle. Neither system has started production. Pre-production with limited runs are happening to get manufacturing setup, but full scale production is weeks if not months away.

Godmars290  +   427d ago
@Death:
Except where Sony used actual dev kits, with hardware representative of what would finally go into the PS4, MS used neither similar hardware or even software. And even the rumor that the XB1 might see increases in RAM and CPU/GPU, even if its only to spite Sony and no longer be the lower spec system, suggest such.
dontbhatin  +   427d ago
"There were games running on actual hardware and on PC's for both systems. Get over it."

Ok so we have a legit photo of a demo running on a windows PC and you are going to come back with Giantbomb claiming that PS4 was also doing the same thing? Legit proof and word of mouth are nothing alike. Show me a picture of a PS4 demo at E3 running on a pc.

Lol! Did you also forget the windows 7 sound that chimes in at 3:20 on the Dead Rising 3 demo? Seems like you need to go do some research yourself. Oh and while you are at it, why don't you go learn how to type a proper sentence, also spelling helps too, because its very hard to take any of your comments seriously.

You might have to get off of N4G yourself, because it seems like you are getting pretty livid at anybody who doesn't agree with you.

Also stating my opinion towards something that you deeply care about does not make somebody a "fanboy".

Can we just have a damn debate about something on this site without these children coming in here with, "fanboy this and fanboy that! FANBOY FANBOY FANBOY."

If the rumors regarding yield issues and being forced to rush-fix the UI are true, then a delay would be for the best for Xbox fans.

But of course, Microsoft won't delay it. "Ship first, patch later" has always been their MO. The people who will suffer will be early adopters.

medman  +   426d ago
Microsoft would only anger gamers further by delaying the console. They already have a pr disaster on their hands, but to infuriate those gamers who despite Microsoft's shortcomings pre-ordered what appears to be a confused console would be galling. Delay for what? To get their act together and offer more hardware performance? That ship has sailed. They are not going to eat hundreds of millions in development cost to go back and upgrade the memory and gpu/cpu to give the ps4 a head start in this gen. It is counterintuitive. They made their plan, they botched it, Sony surprised them with 8gb of gddr5 and other aspects of the ps4 including pricing. Now they have to push on and hope that gamers will find some of the software they offer to be compelling enough to put down cash for the Xbone.
greenlantern2814  +   426d ago
they should only delay the launch if they are aware of problems. it would really be a bad thing to bring it to market if the machine isnt ready to go. but if it is then release it.
I know they dont want to give sony any kind of head start. but the reasons people want them to delay launch is for things that ms isnt going to do annyways like remove kinect. however they might want to delay just a little bit to avoid potential problems with the day 1 update,

Making a functional X1 that doesn't rely on Kinect to run wouldn't take that long or long enough that it needs to be delay.

Increasing the specs so that its closer to the PS4 or stronger than the PS4 really isn't necessary. Soon as MS does you can bet the price will increase with or without the Kinect.
HammadTheBeast  +   427d ago
That's not happening because MS is forcing devs to put in Kinect dedicated applications into games. Their emphasis on the kinect will make it hard o make a kinect-less X1. But I agree, there aren't any massive issues with it.
Heartnet  +   427d ago
wouldnt say there forcing dev's

at the end of the day if there not publishing the game then they cant tell the dev what to do...

there giving developers more options to use knowing that they can use those features.

For instance every ps4 controller has move attached but the dev cant utilize this without putting in an extra option to ovveride that as not every1 will have the camera therefor no dev will utilize it as its a waste of time and money.
Kryptix  +   427d ago
The main problem with this is people who already pre-ordered the Xbox One and paid the full $500 would be pissed off. And I agree, there's not many problems with the Xbox One...it's just the people running it.

without everyone always being online kinect will not function as good without the power of the cloud that was based around everyone being online drm all the time. not only that but releasing now and not having enough consoles to where people who want an xbox one cant get one or have to pay ebay prices is not good thats lost money. the xbox one needs a day one patch like nintendos wii u and we seen how bad that went because some people didnt have internet to download the patch and because the patch was a huge file. they we need to have a day one patch disk available to people at the store so those without internet can get there xbox ones to play games. they need to delay to january or late december. also these are just the problems we know right now imagine top seret stuff we dont know that coud be going wrong.

iamnsuperman  +   427d ago
Bad move. I mean they could update some of the system to make it more powerful but that not only does that add to the cost of developing the console it also puts Microsoft in a bad position as the console is already more expensive than its rival. Okay it happened to the PS3 and sales eventually picked up but the increase in cost with the bad press and the fact that couldn't make drastic hardware changes to the One it would be suicidal for Microsoft. They would have to completely change their how PR campaign. These things do not get done in a matter of weeks. It takes months and sometimes years to do when it comes to a big launch

Angeljuice  +   427d ago
And they've been developing it 2 years longer.

PS4 design began in 2008, XB1 design began in 2010.

This has been confirmed by the respective companies in interviews.
Hicken  +   426d ago
I notice you like to make points that aren't actually even points, Death. Is that by design, or is it ignorance of the discussion- whatever discussion it may be- at hand?
Death  +   426d ago
Hicken, Xbox360 has been out longer than PS3. Can you explain how the XboxOne is being rushed if it is launching at the same time as PS4? Seems like a pretty valid counter-point to me.

The core team responsible for console creation is already looking at what the next gen should do. They look at the console they created and start to figure out how to include the things they couldn't in the next console. It's a never ending process, but not on the same scale over the consoles entire design and manufacturing phases.

To take the 2008 and 2010 dates and say these are real is rediculous. The GPU in both consoles wasn't released until recently. Both companies went to AMD for their CPU/GPU solutions. If the tech in the XboxOne is older like implied, wouldn't that make it seem like it started it's life ealier?

Lastly Hicken, if you want to bring something to the discussion, by all means bring it. I would enjoy an intelligent debate with you if you are up for it.
Hicken  +   426d ago
The age of the 360 is irrelevant. That's why it's not a valid counterpoint.

The USE of the GPU being recent has almost no bearing on the decision to use it, as I'm sure they knew of the thing's development before it was available, and made their decision based on what it was expected it could do. Likewise, that wouldn't have prevented the decision to use other parts inside each system, many of which were developed in-house. The older tech in the XBO- DDR3- doesn't mean the system was in development first. It means they went with older, cheaper tech.

Overall, and this may just be because Sony has been so much more forthcoming about their console than Microsoft has, there's more worry about Microsoft's console being rushed than Sony's.

All that aside, your original comment- what I originally responded to- is completely and utterly irrelevant.
Death  +   426d ago
Maybe google DDR3 and GDDR5 to find it's uses? DDR3 is designed for low latency linear CPU computations. GDDR5 has multiple pipelines that give it a faster bandwidth for non-linear computations which is ideal for GPU computations. Both the XboxOne and PS4 use an 8 core CPU with a 7 series derived GPU combo chip. Neither DDR3 nor GDDR5 is ideal for both applications which is why PC's use DDR3 for the CPU and GDDR5 for GPU's. A 7850 series GPU has 2 gigs of GDDR5. Most games recommend 4 gigs of DDR3 on the motherboard. You seem somewhat bright, any idea why GDDR5 is not available for mb memory? I'll give you a hint, it's not designed for CPU's. Saying the CPU clock speed is too slow to be a factor for the GDDR5 is ignorant. Latency is the issue, not core speed. The GDDR5 to be effective will not perform at it's rated speeds on the CPU side. As for age, DDR3 and GDDR5 date back to 2007 and 2008.
MWong  +   426d ago
I gotta agree most of your comments are not relevant. What you just spouted about GDDR5 & GDDR3 was, "like ok we all know that." The memory information you just posted reads like something you can find from Bing or Google and you just copied and pasted it. You originally commented about the life cycle of the consoles, which was replying to ala_767's comment and that still made no sense.

I'm not trying to attack you or anything, but I don't see what you're trying to say. Both of the systems have been well thought out based on their specs. And both systems have different console futures & needs in mind.

Almost everyone I know is buying the Xbox One and the torrent of Internet negativity has had little or no effect on the outside world.

With that said I'm buying the PS4 because I do not wish to support a company that bares its fangs the second it gets a taste of power. I also believe MS needs to prove to everyone that the Xbox One won't have the same hardware problems as the Xbox 360. I trust Sony and believe strongly that they are on the road to redemption.

Go ahead and delay it, then watch when I cancel my preorders on the two XB1s and spend the cash on games for the PS4 I have on preorder. Microsoft is at the point of no return, delaying it would give Sony the head start and MS would enter a market late with a competitors console more technically advanced than theirs. Going back to the drawing board would delay a new Xbox for at LEAST a year. The only hope MS has going for it at this point is the gamers thirst for a new console. IF they delayed it, the new design better be able to walk on water, otherwise, why bother?

Microsoft has a hard uphill battle coming up. But they do have a way with consumers, I doubt the over clock and ram increase is true and if so that's just more set backs and of they do upgrade ram can you say it will prolly go up in cost even more highly doubt that's wanted already with complaining over the 500$ price tag
strifeblade  +   427d ago
why would it cost higher? you know sony's ps4 cost 275$ according to patcher and x1 costs 325$? both companies are making a profit out the gate.

Ps3 cost sony 800$ when they released for 600$ back then lol.

Wait for what what? It is fine the way it is. The only thing I would recommend is put a 1 tera byte hybrid hard drive in it and call it a day. Lets see what is what when all this supposed guessing from so called experts mean. None of us knows. Oh maybe the fanboys do should I ask them? lol

Xbox One have had a lot of issues with the console launch, and when exactly was this? That couldn't be more farther then the truth. Microsoft had issues, but it has had nothing to do with its launch. The launch is still about four months away. Should the Xbox One be delayed, absolutely not. This is a battle of the consoles and they shouldn't give Sony a inch.
Gamers_United  +   427d ago
They should delay that PS4 to start and let the trolls stay with their ps3 I say

To author you another Sony fanboy hey dum article and comments too
Clarence  +   427d ago
I say to you sir! You should read your comment back to yourself before you post it.
That way you will not look like a buffoon for misspelling the word (dumb).

Your English teacher must have been Yoda!

If the Xbox 1 is going to have issues like the 360 had with RROD then they should push it back.

Aw man you (Gamers_United) bring tears in my eyes.

Tell them how it is. :D
greenlantern2814  +   426d ago
yes and you are so mature nothing like an xbot bashing sony fans for being sony fans. your just as bad as any of the fanboys on this site.
i am willing to bet your an old school gamer starting way back on the original xbox.
if your against fan boys than dont be one.
you are not better than some one or smarter than some one because your an xbox fan boy and not a sony fan boy.

I like how the PS4 looks....but that's about it. No good games at all. Killzone is a joke. Planetside 2 looks promising, but it will pale to the PC version. It's all about the games and a tried and true service. PSN has a lot to prove and live up to. Quite frankly I don't think Sony can pull off half of what their claiming. The fact that people on here thinks Sony cares so much about core gamers is ridiculous. The hard truth is that 70% of all console sales are to the casual gamers who want services other that just gaming. Why do you think Wii sold 120 million units....it sure as hell wasn't for the games. Once MS ramps up the Advertising machine and casuals see the XB1's features, PS4 is gonna look pretty lame!!!
Funantic1  +   427d ago
Crysis 3 a current gen game has better graphics than Killzone on PS4. I compared both videos minutes ago. I hope all the hype on the specs of the PS4 is not a major disappointment.
Couldntfindasn  +   427d ago
The same people saying the Xbox should launch at a later date will be the same ones hating on M$ for actually doing it. You guys are never happy. Also, they will not delay the launch.It will result in too much negative feedback.
thetruthx1  +   427d ago
Microsoft knows they can't afford to give Sony a headstart but with that being said they don't need to delay the console. Xbox one is supposed to be the inferior system but it's more about software tools and development of the games. Developers have already came forth and said the power between the two is similar. Xbox one games seem to look better. Halo 5 has been confirmed to be 60 frames. Killzone for ps4 has been confirmed to be 30 frames. Point made
Hercules189  +   427d ago
Do you know how tell if someone is a sony fanboy, they will show you one photo of a pc at e3 while ignoring all the X1s being played. They show you comparisons of old hardware leaks while also ignoring all the extra new hardware of the X1. They will say that there games are the best looking and nothing on the one compares, yet driveclub looks noticeably worse than forza 5.
TheRealHeisenberg  +   427d ago
LOL, there are way more ways than that.
thetruthx1  +   427d ago
So the xbox one has Ryse, Dead Rising 3, Killer Instinct, D4, Crimson Dragon, Halo 5, Gears of War, Titanfall

If Sony does sell more consoles it'll be because of the price and brand loyalty. I don't see any ps4 game worth getting the system for
edonus  +   426d ago
This article is stupid.... why would the X1 need to delay. I see people talking about X! has all of these issues..... what issues? Some PR... that has nothing to do with the console itself. MS has sowed great games, great forward thinking features. The truth is the sooner the system is out the better because then all of then misinformation can slightly put to rest.

Remember we have a Large group of people that like to Make.Believe so even if the ONE cane out spitting fire and curing cancer they would still tell you its say its a VCR. The pre orders are selling out why would they need to delay anything. Unless they really just wanted to do a over haul. Which at this point really seems like something they dont need to do.

So in truth MS should be trying to get the console out ASAP.
greenlantern2814  +   426d ago
every time you post even when you have good points they get lost in your long and often unrelated fan boy rants. we get it you love ms and xbox can do no wrong.
but i agree they should bring it out as soon as they can, unless of course they discover some hardware issue we are not aware of. like the 360, i seriously doubt the same thing will happen again but that is the only reason to delay. because the longer they rely on the pr message the worse it is going to be they just dont seem to be able to get their sh!T TOGETHER when it comes to he xb1 message.
mpnothanks  +   426d ago
Eh...I think it'd just be better if they tried to find a way to lower the price. But then again, I'm only buying a Wii U and PS4 so do whatevs lol
