Hate It Or Love It, Xbox One Is Still A Great Console

The Xbox One is not as bad as people are making it out to be. In fact, one might even go as far as saying that it is a very innovative console that is great for the next generation of console gaming. When a console as great and as sexy as Sony’s PlayStation 4 is presented in such an empathetic manner and for such a reasonable price it is easy to find ways to criticize and overlook Microsoft’s Xbox One. (PS4, Xbox One)

Do you sensitive kids even know what "trolling" is? Or the definition for that matter?

Simply stating an opinion (or even a fact) that contrasts with your fanboyism is hardly trolling Lol

I find it interesting that every time there is an article about the Xbox there are lots of Xbox haters reading it. Don't say I'm trolling because I'm getting them both. But, ps4 lovers are so angry all the time, it's as if there is buyers remorse and buying justification. MS has made this year very interesting, think of consoles without Ms, what did they bring to the table : online gaming, hard drive, Xbox Live, Indy games, broadband connections and now, well, we will see at least it won't be a PSwalkman.
ape007  +   898d ago | Well said
nobody is trying to convince themselves, X1 is a fantastic console, it's the same as ps4 , In fact it offer better online gameplay due to dedicated cloud servers, look at CoD ghosts, Titanfall and Volition statements

i don't want hollow statements and phantom disagree, i want great reasoning and great arguments

I agree with you Ape. Those dedicated servers, voice recognition, video chat are why Im going with the X1. Good luck on getting agrees here though.

No, just no. Gaikai is used for streaming games not hosting them. Wait and see, sony wont be able to hang with MS when it comes to dedicated servers.

"(Azure was built for business first, with gaming a second thought."

EXACTLY... its a big boy toy.. not second tier crap companies usually pawn off to gamers..

you say it like its a negative when its a huge positive.. where as gaikai failed... thats why they sold to sony.

i have no doubt sony can do something cool with the streaming tech they acquired. but its not even in the same league as azure.
Loki86  +   898d ago
Gaikai is a streaming service, has no capability to do dedicated servers or cloud computing. Why do you think they trying to make a deal with Rackspace, because of how limited their cloud capabilities are.

Of course the X1 is a great console with a great line up. It's the despicable company behind the console that I refuse to trust considering they stop releasing exclusives half way through the generation and tried to enforce the most restrictive, draconian policies on my beloved hobby.

I have to seriously question anyone that trusts MS.

Anon1974  +   898d ago
What I find amusing is that neither console is out yet and here people are, arguing which console is better when for all we know, both could simultaneously explode on the third boot up and give us testicular cancer.

Sure it's fun to speculate and I know it's too much to ask to keep these types of articles in check, but I've got to sigh every time I hear someone through their weight completely behind a product they've probably never laid eyes on, and certainly have never owned yet.
n4rc  +   898d ago
yeah thats true..

nobody really knows.. i could end up hating my choice and looking like a moron supporting it..

but you can say it about both sides... or neither.. has to be one or the other. because neither product is in our hands yet

i agree both consoles will be awesome

X1 will have better online gameplay overall and ps4 will have better quality exclusives overall

AlexanderNevermind  +   898d ago

Even if you think the X1 has better launch titles (and that's very subjective), Sony's exclusives have trumped Microsoft's for over a decade...A DECADE.

Why all of a sudden would this change? Is it because MS in your opinion has the better exclusive line up to start? Hell the game of the year more than likely will be a PS3 game, while MS has stopped making exclusives for the 360.

And facts are facts Sony's nexgen system as presented is better than MS'

Dreamcast has no third party support, marketing, and Sega was out of money. Those 3 things will never be an issue with XB1. "Logic comes first" :D

But why didn't it have 3rd party support? Im possitive if public opinion supported dreamcast then 3rd party support would have followed. My point is that its public opinion thay carries a console, supporting games will follow.

There is a lot of negative people angry at the xbox right now, if they don't sell nearly as well as ps4 3rd party support may very well go away.

How good a console is doesn't mean it will sell. Just like the dreamcast
ForgivenZombie  +   897d ago
But people inside Microsoft want to drop the xbox division all together. Will the xbox brand soon belong to Apple?
Bzone24  +   897d ago
Sega had a few failures before the Dreamcast. 32x, Sega CD and Saturn. If not for those failures, the Dreamcast may have thrived. With three failures in a row, the Dreamcast didn't have a chance no mater how good it was. The Dreamcast didn't have much third party start from the start. The Xbox One does.

Just because you all want it to fail, doesn't mean it'll happen. Even without it preselling as much as the PS4, it is said to be out selling the 360. The 360 wasn't a failure for 3rd party.

I actually dont want xbox to fail, competition is a good thing and if they die off then I doubt anything will fill that void for a long while.

That being said denying the possibility might be a little premature, with all the shake ups and resignations over a microsoft lord only knows what's going to happen. Honestly I've been shocked at almost every turn thus far.

In regards to this whole console war buisness I think I'm going to hold on to my monies for a while and test the water at a later date when things look more stable. Xbox's future looks more shakey than it did in may and I wanna wait and see what software pops up o ps4. This is a very uneasy time to be a gamer
nooneknows  +   898d ago
Look man, I'm so tired of people saying its Playstation faboys bashing the Xbone when basically, Its a ton of the 360 users who switched to the PS4.

Lets see.....

-Quality titles on PS3
-Quantity of exclusives on PS3.
-Longer support.
-Better premium Service. PS Plus.
-More powerful
-No Flip Flopping.

By the way I own a 360 and XBL is superior to PSN, no argument, however PS Plus is better in value.

A bunch of people I know who own a PS4 said they're at least getting a PS4 first then consider an Xbox One. They're just so turned of by the flip flopping, lack of 360 support and just want to try the Playstation exclusives.

My friend who only owns a 360 said he's getting a PS4 because of The Last Of Us, he really wants to play it deeply.

To sum it all up. MS just screwed themselves with the end of the 360 life, 2013, and DRM. They pissed so many people off, that they don't even care anymore.
jackanderson1985  +   898d ago
how do you know what number of people have transferred from the 360 to the PS4... neither of the next gen consoles are out yet so not sure why people are insisting the xbox is dead on arrival or set to lose millions of customers.

fact is the 360 only sold 1.5 mil in it's first 3 months... word from gamestop is that 700k of the xbox ones are on pre-order, that's almost half of what the 360 sold in 3 months and it doesn't factor in amazon or the major US stores that are also stocking the x1

also of the estimated 48mil users of xbox live, how many are on forums or sites like this listing their change of "allegiance" to sony?

fact is all the talk of "tons of users" changing console preference is just that, talk nothing else.

the only way this'll be put to bed is if either MS,Sony or Nintendo quit the console business, or the 10th generation is announced and sales figures show a huge loss of X1 to 360 sales or so on and so forth
nooneknows  +   898d ago
Because look at the U.S.A pre-order numbers between PS4 and Xbox One.

Its an Indication that the they're many 360 users switching over to PS4. The fact that PS4 pre-order is doubled to what the Xbox One pre-orders is outstanding considering the U.S loyalty to the 360.

I think I got my message out the wrong way.

USA and UK stopped the PS3's from dominating. Sony already has Japan, Europe looks like they're keeping their pledge to PS4. They just need U.S and U.K and they run away with next gen.
jackanderson1985  +   898d ago
i'm not sure how pre-orders show that 360 users are switching.

if you wanted you could take the view that it is more PS3 owners are looking to upgrade immediately than 360 users.

Pre-orders are a bad indication of how a console will do over it's lifetime... being very generous here, you can assume 20 million of each console are diehard gamers that leaves 120mil sales roughly to be decided by the casuals... casuals will be the one who decide what "wins" the little war always has been the way always will be

it could turn out sony may have say 5 mil sales by christmas then go stagnant till the following christmas while MS has 1mil sales to christmas followed by monthly sales of 1 mil till the following christmas...

so to sum it up... pre-orders are hardly an indication of how the "war" will go

^^^This. If it was a true gauge, the WiiU would be setting the world on fire. Umm, yeah, not so much.
Hicken  +   898d ago
Assuming the number of consoles sold this gen is an accurate representation of how many fans of each system there are, you would think the numbers for preorders would be about even if people just stuck with the console they chose last time.

That's obviously not the case. And it can't just be a bunch of Sony fanboys preordering the PS4. That's just a logical improbability.

Preorders are reflective of early interest, but keep in mind that the early adopters are also largely the core gamers. So it's reasonable to believe that a large number of Xbox fans have indeed jumped ship toward the PS4.

I had to tell him AND.... Do you know how many times i have to tell my son no over the same shit until he gets the propper punishment, and then he knows better.. Same situation with ms, they acted like a child with drm got a spanking and now they changed their tone.. What am i supposed to do hate them for ever?

Im getting both day one

But to be honest i am a little more excited about xbo i loved the "tv tv tv tv" thing and i really like what kinect brings to the table this time around. From the looks of things xbo gives me more to do outside of games with ease.

Im sure you know that feeling, when you get the next gen console home for the first time and you play that game for hours and then you get burned out of playing the game but you still want to do something with the console.... Imo ms nailed that problem for me, that thing most likely will take over my living room.

But i did see a video the other day with some cool stuff on the ps4 pad... Flicking stuff out of it onto the screen

I think it's a great console, but I wish MS stuck to their original vision because the potential within this was/is incredible. Between the user & the control/gaming interface. I know this would have won me over in time. But now it will be down to the build up of their exclusive library in-time. No launch buy for me here.

I honestly like both consoles. But I'm not getting either of them right away. I need to move out first. But I do want to get both. I like what Microsoft is offering with their console. A lot of solid games, interesting tech with the hardware. I'm a sucker for new tech. I hope they can pull off some of the amazing things they promised. But all in all, I'm mainly looking forward to the controller... If I get an X1 or not, I will get a controller. Lol
