Xbox One Review: A Big Risk That Paid Off | Complex

Microsoft is entering the next generation of console video games with a shocking amount of confidence. Even after the Xbox One's initial reveal left gamers reeling and protesting, forcing the company to completely rethink its strategy, Microsoft seems incredibly assured of the Xbox One's single sacrosanct purpose: to be the all-in-one living room device.

MasterCornholio1767d ago

Next gen already started. And I wouldn't be to sure of Microsoft destroying Sony when it comes to sales.

jesus, dont take everything too serious here. I have no problem with sony. just a joke

Next gen TV surfing that's it. A bunch of novelty crap that people will stop using a week after launch.

I honestly couldn't care less about controlling my TV, cable box, game system with my voice. The only thing that is good is the video editing features, but I could do a much better job with a PC.

It's OK that it's there but when I buy a gaming console I want the emphasis to be on gaming, Gaming!!! The gaming experience has to be top notch first.

Why gamer's are going GaGa over media features on a gaming console is beyond me.

With the number of fanboys that Make stupid comments, it's hard to tell the difference

Maybe we'll send Major Nelson around to the Sony fans homes to show them the light like they did for Francis!

Nothing failed, all that happened is policies failed. What change did Sony bring? None! Oh wait, more powa of course. Innovation? None. Stable day one update? None. Bricked Consoles, many. Lack of games, yep! Poor game scores, check. Promises of obvious games in the future? Check Infamous SS, Heavy Rain 2 & UC4. Hmmm, fanboy or not, MS brought so many changes, listened to its fans, fixed and removed issues and delivered on games, technology of kinect, awesome XBL service and more.

As far as I am concerned, I'm backing a company and console thats committed to change. I embrace change, I embrace new technologies, I dont settle for a beefed up version of what I already have. Software is everything people, not hardware, I wish people would learn the difference.

MasterCornholio1767d ago

Major Nelson is the "switch guy".

That's why I don't trust him.

BTW in the end Francis said that the PS4 is the better gaming console.

Nothing failed you say? Ah never let the truth get in the way of a good troll hey Paul B?

ConwayGritty1767d ago

If 'your' console is so amazing why are you not playing it? and instead all you ps4 fan boys are still on here chirping. Get over it if you don't like it don't buy it.. Let us Xbox fans have a small moment to be hyped for our console and cut the b/s.

Shocking amount of confidence?

Is that why they've changed every. Single. Aspect. Of the machine??

AngelicIceDiamond1767d ago

@skaz Because they had to.

People didn't like the console's original aspects.

So its a good thing not a bad thing that they've change.

If not then the internet would continue to moan and cry.

They did it because you and I didn't like DRM. Therefor the console is better and still confident.

"When all the disparate pieces come together the Xbox one is extremely impressive. You'll be pleased with the new Kinect when you're playing a game and want to look something up on the internet and you can snap Internet Explorer to one side while continuing to play, or when you want to check whether a TV show has started yet without interrupting your movie on Netflix."

It's nice to do all that as an after thought, but they are trying to sell features more than games, and that's not what I expect or want from a system.

badkolo1767d ago (Edited 1767d ago )

then dont buy it and go play your ps4, why is it in every article there is sony trolls in them all day, dont you guys have a ps4 to play, seriously . you guys are the worst pathetic bunch of losers that ever existed, i checked every xbox article and its nothing but sony troll after another, go play your precious ps4 if its so dam great. just wait and wait and maybe you guys will get some games eventually to keep you all busy, but just like last gen, more people spent time on n4g ripping the 360 and only playing exclsuives whenever they came. the worst of the worst you guys are

MasterCornholio1767d ago

Wow Xbox fans are extremely sensitive lately. I guess they didn't like the fact that Sony sold 1 million PS4s in 24hours in the USA.

Relax even if the PS4 outsells the Xbox One by a large margin you will still be able to play good games with it.
