The Real Reason I’m Not Getting An Xbox One

Despite its rough start, the Xbox One has done a lot to shore up its image. However, for Blake from Leviathyn, its not enough. (PS4)

"I believe it Sony’s vision for the PS4 more than Microsoft’s vision for the Xbox One….because I’m not sure they have one"
Just like Andrew House said it, the One has no vision. They said it was built around Kinect and DRM, but the first one is no longer required and the second one is gone.
Welcome though, greatness awaits for all the people who removed their blinds and jumped ships

MS's vision seems to be, "To make money by providing a money making platform and subscription services" whereas Sony's seems to be, "To make money by providing a product and entertainment". With the slight differences in those statements representing vast chasms.

Their vision is to have an all in one complete set top box for the living room as stated by MS many, many times.

The Xbox One plays games, has a great launch line up and will play all those great multi titles currently being promoted by devs and publishers.

As a gamer what other "vision" are you looking for?

Funny how sheep are more concerned about the Xbox One than Xbox's own fans. This tells you that MS is doing everything right.

You are so funny it's sad, do you work form MS' reputation dept?

Being an all in one console was only one of the many things they had in mind as part of their vision.
You end your message saying that MS is doing everything right, makes me wonder who is the sheep

Demoa  +   507d ago
Those are mostly all multiplats
MasterCornholio  +   507d ago
True but you can still play them on the PS4.

And if the rumors of multi plats being superior on the PS4 are true......

No, it looks very cheap and accessible. Obviously so.

I'll get both.

Because i care about games more than companies :)

I don't understand the downvotes for you getting both companies console.Pretty much everyone I know had both systems at some time last generation so I don't get why it's a problem now.

It's ok to get all consoles but money is the problem. And you may get all consoles but you may favor one while other(s) may leave it to dust. I gave you an agree btw.

I'll want to get both but I don't have the cash so I like my choice of getting a PS4 first. If down the line MS impresses me with something I really need then yes I'll get. Though I can't easily forgive them for what they tried to do. Only game that truly has my attention on XB1 is Titanfall and I'll pick that up on PC.

I thought we were done with these?
sher123win123  +   507d ago
i'm not buying an xbox one also because of the "power of the cloud" aka DRM....

I actually think the Xbox one looks like a good console and has some of the best looking launch titles but I have to go with Sony again because they have earned my trust as a company. I am glad Microsoft rethought their business model but it doesn't exactly inspire confidence. If I stay at a small Bed & Breakfast and midway through the night the owner creeps into my room holding a knife, it's not enough that he apologises for disturbing me and leaves my room when I catch him, I'm still probably not gonna be staying there again.

You can say its all about the games and not the politics but you have to consider who is more likely to decide gaming just isn't cutting it for them and start focusing on casual party games and other things a year from now when you already own the console. Either company could do that but if I had to bet one wouldn't it would be Sony.

So I guess I agree with this article but its not just their lack of a clear plan for the future but their proven track record of the past that puts me off.
