GAME is planning a "huge event" to mark the launch of Xbox One at its Boxpark Xbox store.
it better be.
Game are really push the XB-one. I did find it funny when I went past one the other day and could only see posters for Xbox and nothing for playstation.
Did you cry a little?
Cause MS is paynig them lol. Sony isn't paying them.
They only back the best, hahaha Oh yeah and because MS is paying them to, ofc!
Logic. After all, Xbox One will probably be leader in the US, once again.
Wrong country... For the disagrees... GAME isn't in the US.
Ksar point stands if he changed it to the UK. In relation to the 360 the UK is similar to the US. However things could change but I can see GAME's reasoning for this move
I live in Canada, only EB, and a few Gamestops, but same anyway. Any Game stores left in Ireland? Mushroom, ok, how much do you have then? ;)
Considering the amount of controversy the Xbox One has had I wouldn't bet everything I had on that.
It will mostly be forgotten by the time it is on the shelves, especially by the general public who don't frequent sites like n4g too often.
Game isn't a US retailer.
That's right but game isn't a us retailer
Yup it will be a leader in the section called:Worst console launch sales in history xD.....although I'm sure sales will pick up later.
Just saying, on Amazon US bestsellers, PS4 is in the top ten (can't remember exact, 6 or something), while Xbox One is at 52.
Wow hammad you lost a bubble, am shocked at that. Amazon is not really a good way to judge such a thing now is it? It's a fact that Xbox is more popular in the USA and UK.
Ksar, you silly little Xbox drone. GAME is not a North American franchise/store.... Also sorry to burst your bubble. U.S. doesn't = The World. No matter how much you want it to be. Being a 'leader' in U.S. isn't really praise-worthy. That and if the polls suggest anything, Xbox will have tougher time maintaining their superiority in U.S. over PS4 next generation. Weep for everyone.
Let's the competition begin
It's a PS4 giveaway!
Its quite simple marketing, whoever provides the most marketing material and money, and how quickly, will determine what is set up in stores. Looks like Microsoft is making a huge push to win back some consumers.
Im not a fan boy but they have obviously been paid and the stores that ps4 launch will also be paid by sony. Everywhere i on the internet stores xbox links in your face because stores know that ps4 fully booked meaning all the excess xbox 1 have to sold.
Woah woah woah... Hold the phone... An XBox based video game retailer holding an XBox One event... That's crazy... /s
Opening an xbox-only store seems to be the craziest kind of all-eggs-in-one-basket, until you realise it's Game and they're a half step away from being bankrupt, so a m$ lifeline is probably enough to keep a few people in work for a few more months.
I didn't realise it was an Xbox only store. That is an incredibly weird move by GAME
Never cared for them as a retailer, pittance trade in values and inflated prices. It however is a fitting anti consumer alliance.
and I for one will not be attending
I'm sure you'll be missed
Microsoft don't need to do nothing more there already ahead of the ps4 technologically wise. Alright before you guys disagree with me hear me out. The X1 is more expensive than the ps4 and preorder wise is competing, the OS would be smoother because the X1 is going to use 3gb of ddr3 just for the OS, i know your going to said the PS4 OS is lighter so it only needs 1gb of ram, i called that bullshit, and here is why. PS4 is going to do background downloads, installing in the background, background purchase, video recording, full multitasking, just like the X1 and your telling me they can do that with an inferior ram for OS using only 1gb, while a company that makes a living making software needs 3gb of superior ram to achieved the same goal, and please TV broadcasting is not going to use ram so don't bring it up, because that technology just switch outputs just like u do when u press the input button on your controller. I wonder why Sony haven't show us no realtime videos of their UI? I TELL you why, because it's a lag party. Second point better controller you ps fan like to talk about gimmick always trashing the Kinect, but the only gimmick this coming gen is the DS4. How didn't sony realize by now that nobody liked Sixaxis. their new controller uses small trackpad, a bright light, and gyroscope. The X1 kept what ppl like about the x360 controller and remove what gamers didn't like, for example the kept the same button layout, but changed the D-pad. All of this are facts, and common sense.
It's unfortunate that you believe everything you typed and you're probably old enough to vote and join the military.
I had both systems this gen but I might just stick to ps4 only this gen.
I know of 1 shop I wouldn't visit if I lived in the UK. Had enough of that biased crap at my local GS which is what lead me to do all my gaming purchases on Amazon. A game store should be neutral unless it's a MS store or Sony store.
Xbox is alot more popular in the uk, so it's good business sense to back the most popular brand.
I live in the uk and 98% of people that i know are buying a ps4, who said xbox one is more popular?
I put xbox, we will see about the Xbox one. Xbox is a brand, the Xbox is more popular so they are backing the brand again, it's common sense to do that, and to be honest think they will be correct to do so. UK is very much like the USA Xbox very popular, and will stay that way. Playstation is more Europe, I have one and its hard to find English speaking people on psn compare to foreign speaking people. I only know of one person getting the ps4 and I live in the uk, strange a? Me and all my friends are getting the Xbox one on release day, that's 8 to 1 for the Xbox one.
fair enough i think your right about Xbox being more popular, although i think that's just because people followed each other in buying Xbox's (just like myself) even though after playing ps3 i think i prefer ps3 to Xbox (i have owned a Xbox 360 for 4 years and never touched a ps3 before until last week). Im not sure where you live but i only know 1 person getting a xbox one (and a ps4) and all my mates are getting a ps4 with me. but fair enough i guess we will have to wait and see
Not at all surprised lol
