This event and how much is being put into it shows how well Microsoft knows how to market and how much money they have to spend. To the average person who is not a gamer and doesn't see the differences this is a big event that will probably get massive media coverage outside of spike. Microsoft know how to sell stuff....even if its really misleading hollow or just completely irrelevant to gaming.

Its the association they get the "all in one hip new thing that everyone wants. The thing the young crowd, the cool people want"

Their marketing pisses me off...especially since sony's is so weak in comparison (just being honest look at my comment history Im VERY pro playstation) Imagine if PS4 had Microsofts marketing...heck even when Microsoft kinda copied sonys "perfect day" commercial it was done better! It had obviously a bigger budget, famous people better CG and it makes you feel something towards the brand (IF you dont know any better like most of us). They grab more attention....But the good thing is PS4 wil probably sell more for gamers....but I have a nagging feeling that xbox could claim the casual market that wii left behind.... especially if it starts to go through cable providers.

heck casual gamers I know that are even on ps3 know when the xbox one is launching (even though they don't want it) I had to TELL them the PS4 was out because they had no clue!!! what if sony just grabbed the core market? What if Microsoft grab the wii's market?

Angels3785, the world would be a better place.

Then Nintendo could stop producing sub-par gaming consoles, and focus on developing games and apps for Sony & Microsoft. Increasing the install base of those that could enjoy their game catalog.

Another informative and intelligent response from Steven3657.

Now THAT is sarcasm.

Stop trolling people, I'm not excited for the Xbone but let the fans enjoy the moment.
DEAD-DEVIL-DISCO  +   304d ago
the majority of gamers i know are getting a x1. the thing has potential no doubt. i went with the ps4 cause i knew the certainty of exclusives. i felt like ms stop caring about core gamng for thelast few years. if x1 shows me different then im down. yall have fun

Can't wait for ALBW...

I'm waiting on more games for both next gen.

Only thing I really don't like about xb1 is the ui & voicec command. Controller looks awesome.

Eddie20101  +   304d ago
It's not so much that they know how to sell stuff its that they have the money to have commercials run during every break, constently. I cringe when I watch any event that Microsoft puts on. All the celebrity crap, stupid demonstrations, slimy reps. that seem disingenuous, its all flash and no substance. Apealing only to the.........
Ilovetheps4  +   304d ago
The last generation kind of flew by for me. It doesn't feel like I got my PS3 6 years ago. It was a fantastic generation. Hopefully the new one is just as good.

I'm actually looking fwd to Ryse tbh. Reminds me of Heavenly Sword on the PS3. I really enjoyed that.

A great-looking game but nothing too deep or too oomplicated. Seems to me it's doing what it set out to do; a bit of hack'n'slash to keep the gaming appetite going between sessions of BF4 and AC4 until Destiny and Titanfall.

Yes, buy it. Best game ever! Tell your friends to buy it too. Spread the word.

Wow, look at the disagrees.

Game0N  +   304d ago
Didn't even know they were doing a show like the PS4 launch, pretty cool. Will definitely be watching.
cl1983  +   304d ago
It's also being aired on Spike tv in the US.
CaptainPunch  +   304d ago
As much as I would like to be excited for the next gen consoles, I just don't see a reason to buy them yet. Maybe next year when more games drop.
FunAndGun  +   304d ago | Well said
Enjoy your launch Xbox fans and fellow gamers!!

It is exciting to see the two big consoles launch only a week apart.

Whether you are collecting relics in Knack or
Taking turns at 100 in Forza or
Getting headshots on Vektan scum in Killzone or
Slicing grunts to pieces over and over and over in Ryse,

We are all here for the same reason; we love console gaming.

So pick a side or collect em' all, and lets enjoy this new generation of gaming!!
Benchm4rk  +   304d ago
Well said my friend
Zeromoniker  +   304d ago
Totally agree, well said.

Just hope Mr Postman isn't late with the deliveries !! :)

(based in UK so XB1 tomorrow and PS4 on the 29th)
GiantEnemyCrab  +   304d ago
Giant Enemy Crab approves!
malokevi  +   304d ago
Hell yeah, brother. Big day for me.... SO FREEKN EXCITED!!!

:D :D :D

Ever since I could barely clutch an NES controller, I LIVE for days like this. Couldn't be happier today.
SITH  +   304d ago
Game on fun and gun! You sir get a bubble. Spend it wisely.
lawgone  +   304d ago
Here here!
EXVirtual  +   304d ago
Well said my friend. I can't wait.
Dread  +   303d ago
I with u!
Benchm4rk  +   304d ago
Well I just spent the last 4 hrs setting up my Xbox One and playing it and so far so good. Only took about 15 mins to download the update and my internet is crap.

Took about another 10 to install and go through through all the set up and getting my gamertag on it.
One thing that I was annoyed at though was it took forever to install COD Ghosts. My friend had the same problem.

Some early reports said about 15 to 20 mins and once it hits 50% you can play. Well after over 30 mins mine was on 5%. The next 45% came alot faster and at around the 1 hr mark I was playing. Not exactly ideal.

A couple of guys I talked to on live said it didnt take them that long so im not sure what happened to mine.

Whats with the admin note? I think it would have made the top list anyways but why add it from the getgo? Just wondering thats all. Did they think it might have been missed? I'll be watching tonight, hopefully we see some new games. Then again we have VGAs just around the corner. Waiting for Fallout 4 and maybe some Uncharted gameplay.
lawgone  +   304d ago
You would think but since this is mostly a Sony site Xbox stuff doesn't get voted up much. Kinda sad since I like both consoles - which some of the Sony fanboys won't even tolerate. I wish they'd just go away and play their freaking console they love so much.
TruthBTold  +   304d ago
There are enough xbox fans to give it degrees. There are more Sony fans but it wasnt always like that. It used to be the otherway around. I prefer sony but if i won the lottery and could spend more time playing games i would be buying an xbox , a wiiu and a very nice gaming pc. Any kind of fanboy can try to ruin the fun for the other side. Just ignore, its a pointless war. These are gaming machines only, nothing more. I would actually blame journalist more who have no talent and the only way to keep their jobs is to crate some flame bate article to stirr up the fanboys. Fanboys will be fanboys and you can let them be in a healthy way but some websites make them turn againts each other to feed their hits. Kinda like politics, divide and conquer.

ltachiUchiha  +   304d ago
Yup congratz to microsoft with their launch & hope everyone who grabz one, enjoys their games. Welcome to Next Gen.
lawgone  +   304d ago
Someone actually disagreed with that. How pathetic.
ltachiUchiha  +   304d ago
Lol yup thats how this site works. Too many butthurt fans that cant give any love to the console they dont prefer. I dont see why u cant buy what u like & just have a decent conversation. Smh.
lawgone  +   304d ago
I keep checking on Amazon to see what stage of shipping my XB1 is in :)

I have done something very stupid though. I promised this girl I've been seeing we'd go out for dinner tomorrow. What was I thinking? Would it be wrong to say I am going to go home early because I have a headache? Are my priorities all messed up? LOL

At last the xbox one is here. Felt like an eternity lol.
d0r1en0  +   304d ago
I came to PS4 from 360. Dont plan on getting an x1 anytime soon, as Im over gears, halo, and forza, and will be able to get Titanfall on 360 if its a must have. That being said, I still may check out this launch event on spike. For me there is no reason to buy one RIGHT NOW though, so i saved myself $100 & went PS4.
