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.

the autor is simply trying to convince himself.

oh and btw the whole tv thing with ms have already been done with the PlayTv on the ps3, nothing new to see, sorry ms.

Daoshai1127d ago

Nope. Nothing new to see today, another day, another troll.

AbortMission1127d ago (Edited 1127d ago )

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

redwin1127d ago

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.

ape0071127d ago (Edited 1127d ago )

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

Gozer1127d ago (Edited 1127d ago )

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.

@Art
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.

Loki861127d ago (Edited 1127d 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.

Echoes my view.. Good read..

Anon19741127d 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.

n4rc1127d 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

IanVanCheese1127d ago

Have a bubble vote for making me lol.

NatureOfLogic1127d ago

"Xbox One Is Still A Great Console" Too bad they can't be trusted anymore.

Bluepowerzz1127d ago

this only the uninformed casuals trust them and they oftenly only do for one game lol now its titan fall when you get bored of jumping left and rigght in 720p on walls youll see that you wasted a 500.

medman1127d ago

Amen Bluepowerzz, Amen.

No_Limit1127d ago

I don't get your logic NatureOfLogic, you submitted this article as though it is a positive XB1 article and you proceed into trolling the same article with yet another negative spin. smh LOL

christocolus1127d ago

Don't blame the guy...blame N4G.....anything goes here....smh though in my opinion the xbox one is actually a great console with some very cool games in the horizon...looking forward to it.

buynit1127d ago

Yea.. Hes a loser with trust issues..

greenpowerz1127d ago

A type of control?

*If this news eventually comes to N4G we will post it where we can put our negative spin on the story?(on our terms)

But in this case Natureoflogic is just frantically trolling

No_Limit1127d ago

@greenpowerz

Man, there were rumors through the N4G grapevine that you were were taken to a concentration camp without parole. Haven't seen you for like 2 months, how did you managed to escape? LOL. Glad to have you back for debate. You are needed more than ever.

well then why did you post this natureoflogic???

oh that's right, you just wanted to post something to continue the fanwars. it's pathetic, and you should have your contributor status removed.

i am sure that your last 5 submissions were all exactly the same flamewar inducing rubbish

oh look and here they are

AceBlazer131127d ago

Ps4 is just a better console.

AlexanderNevermind1127d ago

Honestly, nothing else need be said.

ape0071127d ago (Edited 1127d ago )

be honest with yourself, both are the same, both are excellent, X1 however has better online gameplay due to cloud dedicated servers

scott1821127d ago

Sony's cloud will be up and running soon too.
What is it about Microsoft's business first cloud servers do you think will be better for online gaming? Gaikai was put in place with gaming in mind!

gamertk4211127d ago

GAME STREAMING =/= NETWORK PLAY

_LarZen_1127d ago

That remains to be seen, but regardless of what console is better I care about the games.

Both PS4 and XBO will have great exclusive games, and that's all I need to know.

ape0071127d ago (Edited 1127d ago )

i agree both consoles will be awesome

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

that doesn't mean that X1 has bad exclusives or ps4 has bad online, they will both have great games and great online play for years to come

happy gaming everyone :)

True_Samurai1127d ago (Edited 1127d ago )

Honestly it's your one opinion vs the other millions out there :p
So I can say X1 is just a better console

AceBlazer131127d ago

And you wouldn't be wrong it is your opinion.

ape0071127d ago

truth is X1 will offer better launch titles and better online gameplay out of the box

AlexanderNevermind1127d ago (Edited 1127d ago )

@Ape007

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'

No_Limit1127d ago

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

Bzone241127d ago (Edited 1127d ago )

Dreamcast didn't have 3rd party support. Xbox One does.

Edit: No Limit beat me to this fact.

kingdip901127d ago

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

ForgivenZombie1127d ago

But people inside Microsoft want to drop the xbox division all together. Will the xbox brand soon belong to Apple?

Bzone241127d ago (Edited 1127d 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.

kingdip901126d ago

@bzone

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
