To be fair though I doubt any employee of any company would say.

"Meh maybe hold off buying our product right now it's not a great time to get it."

This is just standard PR talk, I expect Sony and Nintendo versions as well.

What person who has left sony since ps4 has come out and publicly said something like this

@ choujij

Lol...I'm just stating facts...the funny thing is why can't it be true because it's Microsoft....or would u rather it be the other way ard sony boasting about what's coming to ps4 and Microsoft being silent...everything is evil if Microsoft does it

choujij1454d ago

When it goes without saying, it doesn't need to be said.

You can't be serious

Ummm Jack?

"I want to thank the employees, partners and customers for their tireless commitment to the PlayStation brand and, of course, to our fans who have pushed us to new heights of innovation and entertainment over the past two decades," he said. "I leave PlayStation in a position of considerable strength and the future will only get brighter for PlayStation Nation.”

Did anyone here see the leaked pictures of the new Dashboard update? Looks Amazing like a Sleek 360 Version. Can't wait for E3, i think all Xbox One owners are in for something Big. With MS minute time slot already filled.

Battlefieldlover1453d ago

Like you did with Abriel?

Lol. Sit down kid.

When would not have been a good time to have an XBOne, less than half a year after launch?

pompombrum1454d ago

Too true. Tbh, the X1 is a great console and I don't regret buying it now however if anyone asked me if I'd recommend getting one, I'd say wait six months. Still so many basic functionality elements missing that needs to be added.

Alan_Shore1454d ago

Bubble+ Sony, Ms, And nintendo are gonna say anything to make people buy there console's.

Truth is now is a great time to own any of those console's It's just that a REP of one of the console companys cant say "they all have there positives and are good to buy right now"

"To be fair"

to be fair for what? Why must any good Xbox One news/quotes come with an explanation? This is saaad

UnholyLight1453d ago (Edited 1453d ago )


Whether it's PR speak or not, I think he is right. The Xbox One may have had a rough start, but the future is bright. Xbox 360 showed just how much things can change from the beginning to it's end.

Xbox One will only take that idea to the next step, and the PS4 appears to be following the same "future proofing" concept.

While I agree with you, he still has a great point to make here. Apart from Forza, you haven't seen any of the Microsoft big guns flexing their muscles yet either. Titanfall is not, nor was it ever going to be, the killer game for the Xbox One. Not for one moment did I believe that!

The X1 is already very impressive on the functionality front. Its getting better and better with every update. Cant wait for E3, and all the new games. I love my X1.

christocolus1454d ago

Marc says all that has been revealed so far is just a tip of the iceberg so i wonder what else they have cooking up? Maybe the dayz dev has an idea afterall he claimed MS showed him some really amazing stuff

LOGICWINS1454d ago

Still haven't played it yet. My cousin has one and he loves it. XB1 will have an amazing future if the price drops by $100 and MS manages to scoop up top tier devs for 1st party titles.

Automatic791454d ago (Edited 1454d ago )

I agree Gozer Xbox One has a good package right out the gate at this point with a great amount of titles that have already come out and what is to come. Xbox fitness is great and the online, services, games and functionality with the TV make this system really feel futuristic.

Note: Can't wait for E3

No_Limit1454d ago (Edited 1454d ago )

I love my XB1 too after gotten it 2 months ago. Amazing system and you can even update the awesome is that!? Can't wait for the games reveal at E3.

"So much for us was around, 'Hey, let's build this architecture that we could rev quickly, that we could add to, that was flexible, that would allow us to do more things and do more things quickly,'" he said.

Improve quickly is correct. They improve the system on what seems to be on the monthly basis now.

I wonder what will be in the summer, or in the big holiday update.

candy_mafia1454d ago (Edited 1454d ago )

Totally what MS should do. Create some buzz 'n optimism for Xbone. There's way too many negative articles about Xbone IMO.

E3 could be super huuge for all the major platforms.

lawgone1454d ago

I agree and disagree. The crowd reaction to XB1 was so immature before and did not represent the majority of customers. I like to see what's announced at things like E3 but I couldn't care less how the crowd there reacts to it. Too many easily manipulated fanboys there.

Enjoying the hell out of my XB1 can't wait to see what's up next!
