Recap: How Microsoft Redeemed the Xbox One // LevelSave

It’s been quite a few months since Microsoft unveiled the Xbox One to the world, and since that time, quite a lot has changed. This has left gamers more confused then informed. Let’s take a quick look back at the past couple months and see exactly what happened to the Xbox One and what Microsoft has done to fix it. (Microsoft, Xbox One)

through sheer gaming awesomeness and the power of the cloud.
Maddens Raiders  +   373d ago
Yeah but the continued rationalisation of a forced camera and additional $100 price tag for a piece of kit with less power, demonstrates that neither Microsoft nor the author knows the meaning of the words "fixed" or "redeemed". Micro is determined to have their way and recoup their Kinect investment, the gamers be damned in the process. Major Nelson stated that forum posters weren't engineers, and that MS couldn't just "flip a switch" to circumvent drm checks, and an always on, required Kinect. All lies and ridiculous confusion.

I'll say it again, the system was not very well planned to be received by the gaming faithful and Sony prematurely forced their hand in Feb of this year. That's why we've seen an avalanche of policy reversals, backflips, and apologies because these contingent issues were never accounted for in the first place. It's as simple as that..
JokesOnYou  +   373d ago | Well said
No Maddens X1 will do just fine, heres why:

"Yeah but the continued rationalisation of a forced camera and additional $100 price tag"

-The camera is welcomed by all who are interested in gaming beyond just a graphic upgrade. Kinect v2 retails for $400 so in fact included in X1 package we are getting a helluva bargain.

"Microsoft nor the author knows the meaning of the words "fixed" or "redeemed"."

All of thr DRM policies have been reversed= fixed. Normal gamers without an axe to grind who really wanted an X1 but were not in favor of those changes are satisfied and will buy an X1=redeemed. It seems its you who does not understand the meaning of fixed/redeemed.

"Major Nelson stated that forum posters weren't engineers, and that MS couldn't just "flip a switch" to circumvent drm checks"

-Thats just simply saying it is a big decision thats OVER HIS HEAD he is just a PR guy but common sense dictates it would require a lot of re-thinking, re-coding and careful implementation of current policy and code at the hardware level, the reversal came weeks later and micro/X1 engineers are likely still finalizing the NEW FIRMWARE CODE for the DAY ONE PATCH/UPDATE its not magic its hardwork and late nights for engineers/coders= So in conclusion it is a FACT that its not just flipping a switch but when you are pre-programmed to think micro is evil everything is a conspiracy and lies to you.

"I'll say it again, the system was not very well planned to be received by the gaming faithful and Sony prematurely forced their hand in Feb of this year."

-A console that launches 1 week after ps4 in the US, 1 week before in most of the big Euro markets, has the better quality and quantity of next gen exclusive games, has actively made small upgrades to specs which is unheard of when you are have production issues and is a console that aims to do more with kinect, tv integration, media and will bring full use of dedicated servers also incorporating the cloud so far in ways no other console has, all this DAY ONE, while a company far less ambitious with its Gaikai service wont even be available at launch, hell I still remember when FCC suddenly became the measuring stick for a console being ready, then we find out X2 passed before ps4, now the guys like you are still grasping a new straws to make it look as if the X1 is rushed meanwhile dony wont even confirm the share buttons youtube uplaod, come to think of it micro has shown and talked about X1's specs and functionality in alot mote detail than sony= if that is not ready compared to their competition then I dont know what is?

the only thing going for it is brand loyalty, tainted glasses can make what you want look beautiful and powerful, so you can convince yourself but the majority of gamers don't like what the XB1 has to offer so far.

@newmonday

If your graph holds true, then if PS4 sells 100,000,000 consoles, then the Xbox One will sell about 55,000,000.

That's more than enough to ensure a good online community and continued developer support.

Unless all you care about is sales.
NewMonday  +   373d ago
@creatchee

good enough for me
a larger market share will give a better foundation for 1st party games to succeed, this will make Sony take more risks.

and the pressure of a small market share will push MS to invest in true exclusive games to win the gamers back, they could get back to the good old days of the TrueXB1 and early 360 years. they should stay under pressure because they will just shift back to timed DLC if you give them the chance.

Just FYI the kinect is not $400. Idk why ppl still believe this.
Don't get me wrong I like the X1 over the PS4 hands down. I just don't like how ppl believe crazy things.
The kinect cost "maybe" $200 at best. The $400 tag ppl throw out is actually for a dev kit where the dev gets 2 kinect and a shit ton of support from MS.
Get ur facts straight home skillet.

ArchangelMike  +   373d ago
The proof that Microsoft have yet to redeem themselves is borne out in pre-order numbers.

The pre-order numbers suggest overwhelmingly that gamers this gen have (initially at least) sided with Sony and the PS4.

Policy reversals, Fifa 14 bundles, Forza bundles, Titanfall etc etc have not done enough to reverse the low pre-order numbers.
JokesOnYou  +   373d ago
Yeah because a console gen that will last the next 10+ yrs is going to be determined by sold out preorders that are a DIRECT REFLECTION of how many each manufacturer CAN PRODUCE prior to launch that will ALL sellout to a few million hardcore gamers over the course of 1-2 months, thats cool but the other 120+ months what will happen?...oh my bad nevermind preorders is whats most important.

They have doubled their pre-orders compared to the Xbox 360...sounds pretty redeemed to me.
devwan  +   373d ago
@Bundi But the xbox one isn't competing with the 360, it's competing with the ps4, so that's irrelevant and clearly one of those kinds of "facts" that gets pulled out when meaningful numbers don't tell the story they wish to portray.

@JokesOnYou 10 years? No chance. If anything the next generation will be shorter than the last and Microsoft aren't going to want to drag on into the 2020s with hardware that already struggles to live with 2012 PC hardware.
ArchangelMike  +   373d ago
@Jokesonyou

Pre-order numbers are a direct indication of demand. At present there is much more demand for the PS4 than XbOne.

The thing is that increased demand breeds more demend (the Wii is a prime example of this). The higher demand for a PS4 will feedback into the consumer minset, which will have the effect of feeding demand over the coming years.
ZBlacktt  +   373d ago
Joke, this is becoming a joke. You are aware MS has never out sold Sony at any time right? Even with a full year head start and a worldwide launch in 2005. Now fast forward to Next Gen pre orders and Sony has the most ever in company history. Their message has been clear from the start " All about the gamers and developers ".

PS1 - Second best selling console of all time

PS2 - Best selling console of all time

PS3 - Outsold XBox 360 full year later launch date. No worldwide launch. All of Europe waited until 2007 to get it.

starchild  +   373d ago
Oh jeez, more ridiculous melodrama from a fanboy.

MS, Sony, Nintendo, AMD, Nvidia and other companies all offer gaming hardware, and you can either choose to buy it or not. No one is holding a gun to your head.

If Microsoft would have come out with the Xbox One with the original features it wouldn't have ruined anything. The people that wanted to move into a digital future on a console similar to what we have on PC would have bought the console and been happy. Those that didn't like it would have bought something else.

What I have to ask is, why do most of the people that "will never forgive Microsoft" just happen to be Playstation fans? You guys already had a thing for Sony and didn't like the Xbox anyway. Most of the people I see making comments like yours are people that I saw making anti-Xbox 360 comments last generation long before the announcement of the Xbox One.
SITH  +   373d ago
Exactly. They act like they are angry former and loyal Xbox gamers who have suddenly lost all respect for Microsoft and can't understand why you have not. It kills me they have no clue we can see every word they ever say in their comment history.
SITH  +   373d ago
Lmao, N4g is full of you pretend butt hurt people. You do realize we can all see you comment history!? You never supported Xbox one, and that is clear by your obvious disdain of the Xbox 36o and Microsoft. You never had respect for MS to have anything ruined by them.

Your very first comment on your account.

"360 a better concole?
M$ definitely couldn't sell it's console if they didn't do all the dirty tricks they did. Not saying sony doesn't do the same thing, but in my opinion M$ does it a lot worse and it's just getting personal now.

and by the way, none of the sony customers ever said "who needs duel shock (rumble)". As i recall, they were all screaming bloody murder, demanding it back and sony actually listened to it's customer base.

The 360 is in no way a better console. I... #37.1

yellowgerbil  +   373d ago
Nope that's not it. I read all the "pos" articles, I am just not so easily swayed, MS will have to go above and beyond to earn back my business after the RROD and all the crap with the new system. Got rid of my 360 in 08 they've not done anything to make me regret that decision
ZBlacktt  +   373d ago
Again, thanks to Sony for forcing their hand. Otherwise you would still be screwed. That is a absolute fact. Thanks to Sony for bringing the Blu-ray player to video gaming and also wining the format war. Now the X1 won't be held back there either. It really looks like MS has a extremely hard time coming out with new consoles without huge major issues. Years of RROD to all this. Then comes the sorry about that we are going to flip flop on that. If the devil was selling candy that was poisoned and you found out it was poisoned. Called him on it and he said ok I took the poison out. Would you still buy it? That's what all this is really.

Great for the gamers who just love this brand no matter what. But never turn a blind eye to what you really are dealing with here. It's your money after all.
Sitdown  +   373d ago
My gosh......Sony didn't force their hand; before Sony's announcement at E3 there was already rumblings and complaining, and gamers refusing to turn down basic rules and principles that they have enjoyed since the start of gaming. Did Sony when the dvd war? But somehow dvd made their way into consoles....so guess what, if hd dvd would have one, then most likely it would have been in consoles. What was the huge major issue with the original xbox? Pretty sure purchasing a $500 console is not the same as eating candy that can kill you from an entity bent on destroying you. But since you are using that example.....what us your analogy for Sony and rootkit? What about Sony removing an advertised feature of other OS from a console you already owned? Both of these companies are far from innocent, and I willingly purchase both knowing this.
stuna1  +   373d ago
@Sitdown

In a lot of ways Sony did force Microsofts hand, here's why; if Sony had said nothing one way or another concerning the planned policies they intended to implement, best believe Microsoft wouldn't have been so quick to start reversing their intended vision for the Xbox1, regardless of how low the pre-order were for the Xbox1, because regardless of what anyone including Microsoft could say, everyone was under the assumption that Sony was also going down the same route! The PS4's pre-order wouldn't be anywhere near the level they are now, because the jury would have still been out concerning Sonys plans on policies, thereby not posing a major threat to Microsoft.

At this very moment the Xbox1 would have had the industry in a catch 22 situation! Because they would have been able to dictate the direction of the entire industry. People with too much power, that they use to control and instill fear are called Dictators! The restriction, policies, and demands that Microsoft tried to impose on gamers, developers, the industry as a whole, were nothing short of a "DICTATORSHIP" of gaming.

Here we have those still spouting on about how they wish Microsoft had been clearer on their presentation of their message.....Well here it is! Notice how the popularity of Xbox brand has also ushered in some of the extremist measures and restrictions known to gaming to date!? If Microsoft could monetize every aspect of gaming they would! The always online feature was a means to that end!

What happened to gaming being fun? I'll tell you what happened to it! Microsoft happened to it, now it's becoming more like a costly chore to have fun.

Software_Lover  +   373d ago
XBone is a great console. The ps4 is a great console.

Microsoft's only problem,if you can call it that, was that they tried to bring the PC style of purchasing to the console. Buy a game for pc (physical) and you have to install the game to your pc, use codes, etc. Cant lend it to a friend.

Most hard copy pc games these days even come with steam codes where you have to verify the game. I didn't see what the problem was, but I'm an avid pc gamer and rarely buy used games anyway.
Imalwaysright  +   373d ago
Really? I don't remember having to ask permission every 24 hours to use my PC or play my games. Lets face it MS tried to take the ownership of our physical copies and turn it into a digital license with those 24 hours check in. We would have the copies of the games in our house but they would control them and if that isn't reason enough for gamers to speak up against these multi-billion $ companies I don't know what is.
Software_Lover  +   373d ago
I can't disagree with the checkin. But that was necessary as there was no authentication on the disc. I'm not saying it was a good idea. If a 24 hour checkin was the only thing they could think of, then they should have thought of something else.

Other than that, I didn't have any issues with what they were doing. But yes the 24 hr checkin was a bad idea.
Izzy408  +   373d ago
MS has redeemed themselves for the most part. However, Piss4 fanboys will never admit it. Ironically, they're the ones who the most bitchin' even though they're not buying the X1. Quite pathetic, really.

@Praxxtor Yes but couldnt these so called fanboys from Sony's side be swayed if it was really that good. I love gaming for the games and thats why I'll have all the systems eventually even if the xbox1 ended up only being sold for one day and I had to wait years to find one somehow. I Like Forza and love the older Killer Instincts, not so much the Dead Rising Series but it def looks like something I would buy for something after everything else has been played and Titanfall is on PC so I'm set there too but if were going to argue games we all know Sony will deliver the games we want more often and honestly thats not even an opinion lol. Look at the 360 and tell me what great games are coming out for it and which ones recently, like in the last year or two cause i'm drawing a blank.
redwin  +   373d ago
Do you think that the Sony fanboys will admit that Sony's lack of innovation is horrid. The difference between the PS and the PS4 is a hardware upgrade, without the MS innovations : game chat, hard drive , 86x, online gaming, ect. I'm not a Xbox fanboy, you can read my comments below. Feel free to prove me wrong.
thebudgetgamer  +   373d ago
So you're saying fanboys are gonna fanboy? My point is people like izzy complain about ps fanboys, look at his post history it's no better than any fanboy on this site. Yet he feels like he's above it. He's not.
dp277407  +   373d ago
@Redwin I think Sony's maybe been setting aside and making great innovative ideas better, Instead of pocketing more money. You bring up the hard drives but look how Microsoft does this now and I fully understand the vita cards being outrageous but they make moves to correct mistakes even if its not the move we completely want. I realize I like Sony better but I'm really tring to have a valid discussion and not just shit on each other the way we always do. Innovation though look at the VitaTV, think if remote play works finally with no noticable lag, Move could still be a player if we can make 3d models and use them to create games in the new LittleBigPlanet. I'll be honest and maybe it's cause I have great internet but I've never been able to tell the difference between xboxlive and PSN. Also look who's copying plus, who's being innovation that front not Microsoft(yes I know of steam ). Maybe people are mad that we have to pay for online now but we didnt for a whole generation and I think that makes up for it. I know my sentences and stuff can be a little scrambled with thought but please lets try and treat each other a little better.

External peripherals won't push gaming forward. I'm glad Sony sees that. Everything that has revolutionized gaming has happened IN the game itself. Remember the jump from standard definition to HD. Then the inclusion to sophisticated AI systems, whether simulations, etc. When you look back at the Wii, eye toy and other peripherals like that. They never truly changed the way we play games. They never replaced the traditional T.V and controller setup. Looking back, it seems that these things were in the realm of a "fad". But like all fads, they soon die off.

What gaming needs is another jump that happens WITHIN the games themselves that alter our experience. Whether it be the inclusion of 4K gaming, or something else. Revolutionary physics system that alters the way we interact int he game worlds. Blowing up crates that explode with splinters of wood and injure the enemy? Blowing players through walls that collapse and cause collateral damage to the building and falls on the opponent? Physics that matter in the game and force us to carefully or recklessly interact with our surroundings. The Order 1886 is trying to do that with that interesting physics system that was detailed a while ago. Cameras & voice recognition will never alter our gaming experience and they won't replace the traditional controller setup. They kind of just wasting time and money.

Embolado  +   373d ago
I do believe that external peripherals have been mostly a failure up until now, but there are really great strides that are pushing things out of the norm.

Ex:
3DS: more visual depth in handheld games
Wiimote/Move: Came with motion controllers
Kinect/2: Movement capture
Oculous Rift: step towards virtual reality

Sure they have not been commercial game standers but you cannot turn a blind eye to the movement that gaming is makeing strides to broaden its horizons. These companies see these as openings to diffent levels of interaction with their audience. Otherwise we will continue down the path of graphics over interaction, which over time will only become stale. I welcome the changes, and would hope fellow games would do the same, because the future looks bright indeed.
staticdash22  +   373d ago
The future for external devices does not look bright. it's an unwanted addition when all we want is revolution form WITHIN the games. They won't repalce the traditional experience, why else do people complain about motion controls, touch gimmicks, and etc in their games? What gaming needs is change happening from what's in front of us. The biggest change we had was going from standard definition to HD.

Just look at how Nintendo went ahead and introduced the 2DS. That was kind of an admission that the 3-D fad is over. People aren't really going to the movies and watching it in 3-D anymore. They're slowly being removed from T.Vs. What are the advantages of peripheral based enhancements? Other than driving up the price of the desired console. I'm not going to buy a peripheral on top of my console of choice, on top of buying PSN & xbox live cards, on top of new controllers, and on top of games. There are other ways for gaming to evolve than by resolution alone. Better AI, dynamic changing environments, cloud based match-making, etc.

Next Gen doesn't have to be about the next BIG thing. Next Gen seems to be an advancement of what we already have, building on top of established roots and taking them into the future. Microsoft's all in one, the only device you'll need for your entertainment & Sony's vision for gaming to be connected, were we all share and all pieces of hardware interact with each other to the point where you can access your playstation content anywhere in the world.

You can say that all you want, but I don't share your opinion.

I have used the Oculus Rift and I am FAR more excited for that than any next gen console. In my opinion it will bring about a revolution in gaming.

That isn't to say that traditional gaming will go away, just that VR will become a new significant segment of gaming.
Embolado  +   373d ago
I can see that you have distain for the devices but the attach rate of these devices speaks otherwise for the market. Consumers are willing to try different devices to get new experiences with their consoles and or handhelds. I can see how a dedicated gamer is quick to rebuke these but do not assume you speak for all.

The 2DS is shooting for a subset of the market and does not show Nintendo loosing interest in its 3DS but simply chasing another market avenue. They have done this many times before with differnt handheld iterations.

I agree to you sentiment that we are in the progress of having evlolutionary strides in this generation instead of revolutionary ones, just dont be so hastey to discard ideas that may not fit your gaming needs.

And the funny thing is none of us have a system nor games in our possession. I put money these so called "Dev's" (If they exist like a unicorn) are some small time entry-level team.

The Xbox isn't competing with the PlayStation 4. Microsoft is trying earn money by selling us a good. It doesn't really matter if the PlayStation 4 sells more as long as the Xbox makes them profit they are doing great. Just like this gen PS fan boy like to say that Xbox came last but that's stupid 2 to 4 million is not hurting Microsoft. they do compete in the same market there's no first or last there's profit and no profit.

Xbox one is goings be a great product. It's very balanced and plenty of powerful hardware to last years. This November is gonna be exciting when I finally get it home and power up for the first time and start playing games like forza, ryse, and dead rising.

With all these pre order sales yet Sony struggles to make profit for the company for the past four years straight.
