5 Things the Xbox One can do to Regain its 'cool factor'

The Xbox One has easily become one of the most hated consoles in gaming history. Even after its One Eighty policy change, the system still suffers from bad rep and publicity. In this video, I list the 5 things the Xbox One can do to regain its 'cool factor'.

I didn't realise coming in dead last gave you the "cool factor".

Microsoft: Milking every last penny you have out of you, whether it's buying a 360, a second 360, an Xbox One, smartphone, tablet, games, Xbox Live, Netflix Subscriptions, DLC, heck lets just throw a second Xbox One onto the list of purchases.

Xbox and Xbox360 pushed online console gaming... sony is still catching up.

Now, this gen, MS has always been planning on a console with 8GB RAM, multiple inputs and unprecedented server support. Sony, on the other hand, picked up a game-streaming service at the last minute to tout as their "cloud", and added an extra 4gb of ram, and then ditched the camera to make their price point.

If I had to pick between the company that ahs been playing catchup for the past 12 years, and the company that is always pushing the boundaries.... I'm going with the latter.

Proven online service is all I need, and XBL has got it in spades.

There's so many things wrong with your post its not even funny. So here goes. Playing catch up? Seriously? The psn with ps+ is quickly eclipsing Xbl in terms of value and functionality. Don't believe me? Google it or try ps+ for yourself. Not only is the PS4 more technologically advanced, but will also have cloud computing that you Xbox looneys hold so dear to your hearts. Not to mention, developers and gaming experts alike have all stated that cloud won't have any substantial difference in terms or graphical or technological aid. Lastly on this point, what person with an iq above 30 would rather have a technologically inferior console that needs Internet cloud to play catch up to a console that does it out of the box. What was that about playing catch up? You do realize that Sony had multiplayer gaming well before Microsoft right? Also, Sony ditched the camera? I believe they went with the gamers that wanted a choice to buy the peripheral instead of forcing an over priced gimmick down our throats. Man I hope you don't reproduce.

"So here goes. Playing catch up? Seriously? The psn with ps+ is quickly eclipsing Xbl in terms of value and functionality."

Try talking with your friends across games, or as a group, and then get back to me. Go look at the number of services, Xbox Music, all the demos.... Not to mention security & funtionality that clearly dwarfs PSN.

Yeah, thought so.

". Not only is the PS4 more technologically advanced, but will also have cloud computing that you Xbox looneys hold so dear to your hearts. "

Yeah, last-minute pickup of game-streaming service... coming in 2014... maybe. lol. Thought so.

" Not to mention, developers and gaming experts alike have all stated that cloud won't have any substantial difference in terms or graphical or technological aid."

ahahahahaha. Really? Because I have read exactly the opposite from all manner of industry professionals. You must have one hell of a filter hooked up to that head of yours.

"what person with an iq above 30 would rather have a technologically inferior console that needs Internet cloud to play catch up to a console that does it out of the box. "

What sort of person with an IQ above 30 would... write that sentance? lol.

Xbox has its cloud out of the box... PS4 does not. Have you seen the gameplay footage for both these consoles? Disclaimer: 60fps games on XB1 look better than 30fps games on PS4.

"You do realize that Sony had multiplayer gaming well before Microsoft right?"

lol ohhhh, so, the network adapter peripheral for the PS2, which launched 1 year after Xbox Live in North America, came before, and beats, Xbox Live? Xbox, which standardized broadband for Online Console Gaming and came with a built in Ethernet port?

Is that what your referring to? lol. Cause Xbox does it 10x better. Always has... and its looking like it always will. I fail to see you point.

" Also, Sony ditched the camera? I believe they went with the gamers that wanted a choice to buy the peripheral instead of forcing an over priced gimmick down our throats."

Believe what you want. The eyetoy was supposed to be there, evidenced by the now-useless light-bar on every PS4 controller.

lawfl at your lame comment.

As soon as X1 comes out, it's online service WILL have a lot of catching up to do; because all of the services that are missing on PSN now will be fully implemented at launch, AND all the while PS4 will have a share feature (with the share button, Gaikai, and PS+ gives so much value in free games. Live won't have shit. Just shit. That's not even mentioning indy games and gamers who will flock to the PS4 community. X1 is a capsized ship, and before long, it will sink.

Although I do have to admit, I LOVE the way they bundle Kinect with every console! Yay! (sarcasm)

Thirty3Three1550d ago

With their horrid hardware job, I think they're probably going to have a "heat factor"...

Pope_Kaz_Hirai_II1550d ago

Dead last is where its at maria.. about 6 months ago 2nd place was where the cool factor was lol

I think comparing Xbox live to PSN is unfair for PSN. A better comparison is with PSN+ but anyway

To get the cool factor all they need is better PR/adverts That is where the cool image comes from not really about features

RashBandicoot1550d ago

I kinda of did compare it to PSN+ when I said "Xbox Live might be weak in terms of its free games..."

iceman061550d ago

First...they need a unified message that their core can rally around. All of the PR thus far has been segmented and sloppy at best. Then they really need the core to evangelize; spread the gospel (whatever it might be) of MS and Xbox. Then, be aggressive with advertising (which has never been an issue for MS). That should help at least.

Thepharaoh1550d ago (Edited 1550d ago )

I would enjoy to see them acquire some more big developers who are well experienced in game making they have several solid studious like twisted pixel and 343 imagine for a moment if they bought remedy or mist walker,Mist walker being a company who actually owes them money they could be in a good position ti buy them.

jessupj1550d ago (Edited 1550d ago )

All MS need to do is support the X1 by releasing quality exclusives all through out next gen. If they do that then I wouldn't hate them so much and maybe actually see them as a viable option next next gen.

candoa1550d ago

This guys is a looney. they should include the kinect 2.0 on every console that guarantee support from developers. The kinect 2.0 is not an addon it's build in to the system it's part of the console, you wouldn't think the dualshock 4 it's a addon, why not? because we all knwo the ds4 is part of the ps4, same goes for the x1 and kinect.

X1 is doing good preorder wise, why should they listen to you guys and remove kinect ? Most ppl buying the X1 want kinect, because if they didn't want it they couldn't just get teh ps4 is cheaper and stronger. NOw lets look at previous generation to see if you guys have a point with kinect, the x360 kinect sold extremely well and that one was an addon. your guys probably are going to say "well it sold well, because it was a new technology". well if that was the case that means THAT the ps move, and playstation eye should have sold just as good, but they ddin't.

Microsoft shouldn't listen to all this crazy post about how terrible the X1 is, because their preorders are good that means ppl are excited about it. When the X1 had the DRM no console were getting preorders that clearly showed microsoft ppl didn't want the DRM. NOW THAt they remove the DRM preorders are good, so why in hell should microsoft remove something that is getting positive feedbacks? reality>opinions

malokevi1550d ago

Yeah, the first 2 points were basically "get rid of Kinect"... which is as impossible as it is stupid.
