Why I Don’t Actually Want The Xbox One To Fail

So E3 is long over, and with it there is a new generation of consoles looming over us (sorry Wii U, you just don’t count). There is a lot of controversy in the world of gaming right now, and it’s all thanks to some rather ballsy decisions made by Microsoft for their new console, the Xbox One.

The title is saying that you kind of want it to fail. If you "don't actually want it to fail", that means that you kind of do.

That does not mean in anyway that he wants it to fail

I do not want it to fail because I can observe how many people make a uneducated decision in their lives by buying an Xbox One.

Overall PS4 is the better console of choice. OVERALL
Americans have trouble understanding that because they do not realize that whatever positive comment that comes out of Microsoft or any other media related to the XBox One, that it is a small positive as to compared to the PS4's overall positive information.

Sort of like when cigarettes are said to make you more social. They use that positive as their defense as to why they choose to smoke cigarettes

in my case, i am making an educated decision to support both simply because there will be games you just cant play any other way.

I prefer to game without restrictions like being limited to the titles only available for one platform. I eliminate those restrictions by simply buying the platforms that are available.

It may not be the most economical way of doing it but it certainly is the most fun and the most rewarding.

I may sound like a broken record about being console agnostic but it really is better (IMO) to partake in gaming overall than limiting oneself to a single platform. I just dont have it in me to be that committed to just one system.

Why is it always Americans this and Americans that? Like we are just full of a dumb population and everyone else has an IQ of 189?

That gets on my fracking nerves!!!!! (shamless plug)

Who are you people to tell people what to buy? If someone wants to play Forza, getting a ps4 is not gonna help them. If someone wants to play Killzone, Xbone and kinect will leave them in tears. Its as simple as that.

Mario181711d ago

In the case of restrictions, yet you eliminate all of them, but you are supporting a company that finds many ways to get more money out of you. So if you are rich and can afford to buy two easily then good for you.

If you are poor and can only afford one and choose the Xbox ONE then, I feel bad for you

Mario181711d ago

Hey software lover, I am not implying that ALL Americans do make that decision. As an American, I can speak for myself based on the observations I make and you can argue that I am wrong. I do not believe that I am which is why I posted this.

And I am not telling people to buy anything, just what is an overall better piece of equipment

theWB271711d ago

That means he wants it to fail.

I want it to fail so that I can observe how many people make decisions I don't agree with, thus making my life feel a little better.

Overall, I think the PS4 is the better console. OVERALL Mario18 has trouble understanding people have different opinions because he indoctrinated by teh interwebz and believes Sony is any better a faceless company than Microsoft.

Sort of like how opinions are like aholes...everyone has one, but some stink more than others.


thetruthx11711d ago

@Mario18 you do realize that everything you're saying is subjective and not fact right or are you that ignorant?

Both systems, I might even say both companies have their strengths an weaknesses.

The one game from the Scea side I'd want to have is Uncharted but I'll never see it come to my platform of choice. I may end up wanting The Order and Outlast as well

The Ps4 won't see the new games I want either: Ryse, Dead Rising 3, Killer Instinct, Quantum Break, Halo 5, Black Tusk studios game, Forza, Project Spark, Crackdown 3, and Fable

Nocando1711d ago

You are a good example of the extreme among Sony's fan base.You honestly wish us to believe that you would purchase a MS console under any circumstances?

Bigpappy1711d ago

You seem to have your head way up in some dark hole. You think you are so smart that you are able to sway the less intelligent underlings what is best, because there is no way they could possibly want an Xbox over a PlayStation.

I find you complete offences as a person. Not only because you are willing to come on the internet and insult millions of people you know nothing about over F'ing toys, but also because your seem to genuinely believe the crap that come out of your mouth.

The headline is so ridiculous he immediately loses all creditability which invites only the most extreme like minded fanboys to dare read such BS.

If I were a unbiased gamer Mario18's ideology would do nothing to convince me that ps is the way to go. If anything I would want nothing to do with even more people like him. Fortunately if I were that unbiased gamer I'd realize that the whole ps community does not have a disgusting "I'm better than you, smaryer than you, if you disagree then its only because you are uninformed" type attitude, unbiased gamers also understand there are extremists like him on both sides. Although Id say the ps community is much, much more rampant with this kind of thinking....but hey that might be my bias talking.

Ironicly he pretends that somehow his job is to provide a public service by "educating" us. However the end result is talking down to people is the worst way to "sell" someone on an idea or product.

may the best one win, that's all i have to say!
But when a Sony console gets so much praise and everyone sees it winning it's very hard for the competition to stand in front of it.

Spoons1711d ago

You're so caught up in semantics you completely missed the whole point.

Blacksand11711d ago

I'm a PS4 guy, but i didn't want the X1 to fail i just wanted the DRM to fail.

Blacksand11711d ago

If the DRM was a success it would've been bad for all gamer's on Sony and MS.

Picnic1709d ago (Edited 1709d ago )

You're using some assumption to choose your logic there.

If I'm due to get married and I say 'I don't actually want to get married' that on its own does not necessarily imply that I protest too much and that I do actually want to get married. I might really have had a total change of heart after coming to my senses.

No one wants anyone to fail apart from Rabbit fanboy.
I want ms to do well for competition sake.

I want that controller for my PC and want more forza :)

NatureOfLogic1711d ago

I would like to see them replaced by another competitor. MS has done nothing for gaming but introduce online and DLC.

kenmid1711d ago

online gaming is a bad thing.. SMH..

Belking1711d ago

There you go. Now right here is a hater. You may not like MS but it's really ridiculous to say what you said. It really makes no Like online isn't a big deal.

xActionBasturdx1711d ago

What are you talking about? MS revolutionized console gaming. Sure ps2 had it but it was atrocious. If it wasnt for MS setting the bar for online gaming and introducing dlc imagine where we would be right now. I'm almost positive games like Call of Duty or battlefield would have been as successful as they are right now. So to make a comment like that is just plain ignorant.

No_Limit1711d ago (Edited 1711d ago )

Don Mattrick avatar? What is up with you Sony fanboys cosplaying with MS execs? First, it was MariaHelFutura with Julie Larson-Green and now you.

EDIT: I see you had changed back to your normal avatar once again. LOL

I dont care or it succeeds or fails.

GiantEnemyCrab1711d ago

Well you are in luck then.. because it won't fail.

Mario181711d ago

My name is GiantEnemyCrab, I can see the future. I know consoles more than nearly every other person.

GiantEnemyCrab1711d ago (Edited 1711d ago )

Thanks! But no prediction needed. I think with the fan base MS has established with its last 2 consoles they will be just fine. With the cash flow MS has they've been able to weather some disastrous issues like RROD and the bad PR for the Xbox One.

As long as they support the system with great games they won't fail.

GreenRanger1711d ago

I don't want any console to fail.
