5 Reasons As To Why The Xbox One Is Here To Stay

IM PLAYIN discusses the Xbox One's longevity in the face of the growing internet chatter over its potential demise.

"I’ve written an article (amongst many others on the console in general) detailing the not so great points about the console, here. But, despite its flaws, I have full confidence that the console is here to stay, for at least the near future. I’m not stupid enough to believe that it’s here forever. Things change and people move on. Still, the recent wavering in popularity of the console is nowhere near enough to bring it down, and here’s why."

Number 1 provides exclusives which cannot be ported over to Playstation!

Well of course it's here to stay, just like the PS3 was here to stay despite all the unfounded doom and gloom.

It is underperforming and not doing as well as the PS4 in any sense, and I think that is the point.

"Well of course it's here to stay, just like the PS3 was here to stay despite all the unfounded doom and gloom."

That's what I been saying for the past several weeks now.

I even said the X1 is recovering faster than PS3 did last gen around this time.

@AID

Except the PS3 was released a year later and had to catch up, whereas Xbone was released in the same month and continues falling behind while the gap in sales continue to grow. For that reason, I disagree with your use of the term recovering, as the Xbone has not begun closing any gaps.

The truth is, regardless of how well or poorly it does, the Xbone is here to stay as long as Microsoft says so.

Magicite1181d ago

there have been several similar or even the same articles before, quit repeating.

Of course it's here to stay, but after being heavily outsold by the PS4 I'm not sure if we'll see another ms console.

Well, yeah. Not like it'll just up and vanish. I don't think anybody really believes the XB1 won't survive the generation.

But it's gonna be a long gen at this point. Microsoft may have made a lot of policy changes, but the damage has been done, and Sony had taken advantage of it. It's hard to tell since they haven't announced numbers in a while, but the XB1 is on track to sell maybe 6 million this year. That's not gonna instill much confidence.

MS will eventually catch Sony because they're enthusiastic about big budget exclusives while Sony's yoshida can't even understand why people prefer big budget games when compared to indies. That's very telling.

snarls2001181d ago

his comment was more about people who thinks indies are the never worth the money

DigitalRaptor1181d ago

Catch them?

In sales?

The PS3 managed to bridge an 8 million unit gap with all imaginable disadvantages and PR doom and gloom. That was Sony's one and only "bad" generation. They are on top now and the momentum is not going to slow.

I'm sick of repeating this but I will as long as people keep believing it. Xbone is never catching up to PS4.

Bringing games into the argument, PS4 still has more and better diversity in the mix, but at the end of the day, which games you prefer is opinionated. PS4 also has the better rated games aggregated by Metacritic.

Downplaying indie games is getting old and... No Man's Sky.

@digital
I agree I'm tired of you repeating your self.... Now shhhhhhhhh ;)

"Sony's yoshida can't even understand why people prefer big budget games when compared to indies"

He did not say that. He said he didn't get why people *only* want AAA.

I'm getting one because Xbox has some of my favorite franchises that I can't play on any other console. That is why I will always be a multi-console gamer for the rest of my gaming years.

xJumpManx1181d ago

Exactly. Last gen it was Microsoft who had the more dominant multi-platform console. This generation it looks like Sony will have the dominant multi-platform console. It changes for every generation but each console has its exclusive as a racing fan I cant wait for Sonys Exclusive Drive Club and for Microsofts exclusive Forza Horizons 2.

y7jzdgy1180d ago

I think that most of that dominance was due to the better online service. I don't think many gamers really cared about whether or not one version of the game had a little more grass here or an extra tree there.

BX811181d ago

So true. I never was a fan of sony's playstation. I always was a Nintendo fan then a xbox fan. Last gen I got a ps3 and even though I only got a handful of games I realized it was to me, well worth the investment. I think all this pumping of the chests over brand loyalty is for idiots. Each console has exclusive experiences that are worth playing. I will always be a multi console owner unless I don't agree with the company's policies.

SuperBlur1181d ago

Number 1 : MS invested millions and they are not about to quit without seeing a return on their investment

LordMaim1181d ago

Even the original Xbox lasted four years before it was replaced by the Xbox 360.
