Michael talks about the next generations of gaming and his thoughts, starting with Microsoft's Xbox One (Microsoft, PS3, PS4, Xbox 360, Xbox One)

The main basis behind new consoles are greater graphics and greater gameplay.

Ms did the right thing with the policy reversals

There's only so much consoles can do besides gaming and the multimedia features

The world isn't ready for always connected systems

Alot of places in the world still does not have constant connection of internet. I do not fault MS for the reversal. I was planning on getting an xbox one regardless but Ms had to support and listen to what the people wanted. and they did. so that's good for those who wanted to get xbox one.

Lol, you really think MS "had to support and listen to what people wanted"? They are a business, they changed their policies to potentially increase profits, nothing else.

Yea lukas just don't forget that SONY is a business too. Who knows what they were planning until they heard the MS reveal and the harsh feedback.

Stop pointing the finger at MS.

What? You seriously think that Sony changed plans in the middle of the One conference? Wow, that's just how blind you are.
Sony and Microsoft are business companies, yes, but there are different ways to do business. You can either come up with a million ways to restrict your fanbase, trying to get every penny from them, or you can handle things the way Sony did.
MS doesn't listen, they are just changing stuff on the One (which by the way, was supposed to be built around DRM and Kinect) because pre-order numbers are low

And if we always bend to compensate for those that arent ready we never will be ready.

Everything starts some where, nothing just comes out and is 100%. You have to crawl before you walk and walk before you run. The whole thing with MS was a witch hunt. The industry has become to close to the people so you will have some slob recording 15 minute videos out of their basement talking down and at a multibillion dollar company about the direction they are taking with a multi billion dollar investment product.

Or some game journalist that has no degree in anything tech or software related, that couldnt write one line of code or model a coffee cup in 3d program bashing a game studio filled with teams of software and programming graduates about textures and animations. Its ridiculous.

MS got trolled ad they are to nice of a company, MS has been trying to be more like Apple and Apple are gangsters they would have gave the youtube bloogers and industry a big middle fingers and kept it moving. When they want to do something they do it.... period.

Even with that said MS hasnt really strayed from their goal as much as making it a smoother road and giving their competition a little bit more room to compete but they re still in a commanding position. MS has lots of big bets on the table and all they need to do is win one of them and they will be incredibly successful.

Right MS has the most to show. If every console delivers on everything they say they can and want to deliver on MS will be the best system this cycle if not ever.

Oh that's right Sony does what they do because tHey love you. They don't want you money; they wouldn't dare try to make a profit off of you. They might even announce that they are giving the system away for free because they adore you so much...

Doesn't matter why MS did it, they did it no matter how make it out to be.

Agree, also find it very strange the "relationship" fanboys seem to have with these corporations, as you pointed out.
Godz Kastro  +   459d ago
Craig, I can only think of one reason They can only afford one system so they spew venom on every x1 article to justify their purchase. I see it more from Sony backers though. I read all articles on this site. The reason I like it is because it has multifaceted news.

Every X1 article has someone jumping in and bashing it no matter how positive. I read SOny articles and don't really see much in the way of potential x1 owners bashing Sony articles.

I really think the PS4 is not interesting enough to them. Even more so if they are so stuck to one platform then why not go to a site that has strictly Sony related news... I just don't get it...
CRAIG667  +   459d ago
Kastro, as an owner of all current gen systems I totally understand what you are saying, I have my xbox one pre ordered and have actually dropped my PS4 pre order (for the time being) I will get it at some point no doubt but for me the xbox one is by far the most interesting step into next gen gaming and that money I would have dropped will be spent on launch titles.

And so I too read most articles on this site(I also use steam so that includes PC related stuff) and I can also agree that there is a massive PS crowd on here that just seem to pounce on every xbox article good or bad and troll for no apparent reason other than misguided hatred/fanboyism. It's true the gate swings both ways but not to anywhere near the same extreme do I notice xbox guys bashing the PS articles...

Both corporations are motivated by money. The difference is their approach on how they intend to get it from you.

Microsofts approach is to monopolize and force you to adopt ant-consumers policies. They do not care about consumer goodwill or what is best for the customers. They also dont give 2 squats about their customers once the console install base is large enough (aka they stop making exclusive games). This happened with xbox, and then xbox 360. They also were the first ones to start charging their customers for the internet that they were already paying for. Oh and they also wanted to put on some hefty DRM restrictions for their customers. Are you starting to notice a pattern here?

Sony's approach is to try and give you good value for your money and hope you come back. PS+ games, tons of exclusive games in every genre (even when the generation is about to end... Tlou anyone?), No restrictions or DRM, etc...

So yeah... sony is getting a lot of love on N4G and gaming sites in general. And deservedly so imo. You guys can lick MS' boots all you want, but it doesnt change the fact that if they could get away with it they would screw you six ways from the moon and back.

What? Who mentioned Sony? I certainly didn't. You must be paranoid.

And i agree with you btw, Sony care for profit just as much as MS. Again, they are businesses first and foremost.

The fact that you instantly assumed i was bad mouthing MS because im some sort of Sony fanboy shows whats wrong with gamers these days, its always about side picking or assuming someone is side picking.

Of course they do..Sony doesn't care about money..they rather sell building than charge fans for online multiplayer and to rent free games..\s
