An article written by an Xbox One owner who dissects the reasons why the Xbox One fails to impress both as a stand alone system and when compared to the Playstation 4
There is no way in hell that Microsoft will be able to recover from their mistakes Xbone. It's over people... [email protected] reports... why people are upset? the article is real truth.
it's just denial about the cold hard fact that the xbone is the worst console since the Atari Jaguar
The fact you try to compare the Xbox one to jaguar shows you know absolutely nothing about the gaming industry.
I agree with dudebro, Atari jaguar was awesome. Don't knock it.
That comment was just terrible. your cold hard fact is more of a terrible troll attempt. While plenty of people enjoy their xbox one (myself included) NOBODY was happy when they bought their jaguar. Its game library was horrible. the controller was overcomplicated and its lifespan was all of a few years.
"Mostly cheap game ‘journalism’ (if you can even call it that). Sony on the other hand hold the high ground, due largely to wildly uncontrollable gaming media which repeatedly makes mountains out of mole hills to quench the thirst of fanboys worldwide. Articles about graphics and resolution take the top story every time in the simple attempt to get website hits, regardless of the fact that it a cheap ‘hit and run’ tactic often written by under qualified ‘home blog’ journalists. Sadly, this has created the deep rooted perception that the Xbox One is the inferior system. Sony have the high ground simply because their console which is physically marginally better appears astronomically so; and the industry is worse of for it."
Bubbles to you sir...
What are *you* even trying to say? Do you support the quote? Condemn it? What? There have been tons of articles praising boosts the XB1 is getting by freeing up memory from Kinect and general improvements, but then they fail by ignoring and/or dismissing that the PS4 started out the better performer and is looking at the same general improvements. Never mind that Sony indeed has the high-ground because their in-house assets are more experienced. Hell, one of the XB1's most anticipated titles is Sunset Overdrive, which was made by a former 2nd party dev. Yet, again, someone talks as if Sony and MS are on equal footing.
Godmars290, "There have been tons of articles praising boosts the XB1 is getting by freeing up memory from Kinect and general improvements, but then they fail by ignoring and/or dismissing that the PS4 started out the better performer and is looking at the same general improvements." Of course each will get better the more they understand the hardware but the PS4 was not handicapped in the beginning because of Kinect. That freed up resources on the XB1 that the PS4 didn't have to worry about. The PS4 will always be more powerful but by not having Kinect be required it gets the system closer to parity.
I am wholly mystified why n4rc is apparently getting credit for a directly copied quote. And still, given that the PS4 had the technical lead in hardware, its difficult to believe that they wont maintain such a lead. More so given that they have more of a history regarding push their hardware. Not waiting on 3rd parties to do it for them.
Lol, now you can sleep better right? This article is just as much of a joke as you and the rest of the circle jerking Sony fanboys.
Fail article and fail 1st post.
It's not looking good for Microsoft. Microsofts next big exclusive Sunset Overdrive is going to bomba because their PR department is terrible. For a game coming out on October 28, a quick youtube search will show low views and no hype.
I will say N4G is always on point. As soon as they post something positive about xb1, they follow just minutes after with something negeative (interesting)... At least try to be a little different some times, post the negative first, then following it with the positive...
I can name 99 reasons why this article fails.
99? I'm calling you out on this. Let's see your list. Are you ready? Go.
Only in n4g. The Xbox has been a success. At $500 13 territories more than 5M. That's impressive. The Xbox brand is here to stay providing fans with amazing games and the best features ever. Enjoy.
You're not psychotic at all.
Not according to Microsofts backpedaling on Kinect, they wouldn't if it was a success. Outside of those 13 territories, not many people care about the Xbox brand. So when it's released, no one will notice.
What a total load of crud. Xbox one is doing great now. Over the next 8 years both systems will sell millions more. Who wins ? Both win . the millions of Xbox ones is to large for developer to skip.
Considering the contradiction of more powerful and complex hardware but shorter, quicker, production cycles, neither win. And its going to continue until the stupid hype surrounding AAA either stops, or becomes something of actual substance. there are other standards to measure it by.
Xbox one is doing great now. '' Nope ... it's not great. Xbone ship only 1 Million( combined with 360 console) console in 3 months lol ,this is not great. http://www.gamespot.com/art...
You have no idea who this works do you ? 1.1 million in USA only . you do understand basic statistics dont you. Please save it for another site.
xbox one is selling well, just the ps4 is selling like hotcakes.
Another day another xbox is failing article
I know I just don't get it . both consoles are hear to stay for a long time. I have both consoles and like them both. Its not like one is going to lose at this point. They both have sold millions and a few years you all are going to say ps4 sold 50 million and Xbox only sold 38.5 million . point is who cares they both are great systems.
You raise some excellent points in this article. I have decided to remain on the side lines until both systems have a big price drop. I loved the PS3 and PS2 and have an XBOX 360, but the truth is PS4 seems to be beating the XBOX ONE out. I will get both but its a matter of timing.
How is it "failing"?. It has something like 5million+ out already, while not as much as ps4 it's still good. It's outselling the wii u based on its time being released, although the wii u is actually starting to sell good now, I don't exactly remember, but I think the weekly sales of wii u was higher, not quite sure. I buy consoles to play games, if it has good games, I'm there. While I don't own an xbox one yet I've played on it and I enjoyed it, I currently own a wii u, but I like all 3 consoles, and none of them are in any way "failing", it's only been 1-2 years in this gen, give it some time.
But it's no longer outselling the 360 through the same period of time, and that console had availability issues. Less than a year old, the XB1 has already posted a month of sales lower than any its predecessor ever had. The price cut- and that's really what it is, whether it came with the removal of Kinect or not, as the console us now available at a lower price- hasn't done nearly what was needed of it. Most telling: the damn thing only shares a physical resemblance with the console Microsoft unveiled last year. That doesn't happen to a console that's succeeding, that's for damn sure. Not saying it won't last the generation, or that it's doomed- I know how any negative about the XB1 gets turned into "you're just a fanboy hating" by all the Xbox faithful out there- but you can't possibly look at the XB1's position and think Microsoft would call it successful currently.
I know it's not super successful, the xbox department of Microsoft was never that successful, whether or not it sold 80milliom consoles last gen, but I'm just trying to point out that it's not outright failing like the article suggests.
It was supposed to be a Trojan horse and that was a bad way to begin.
Poor reasons, Xbox One is a better upgrade from Xbox 360 the controller is fine so fine playstation users are borrowing parts from it. Xbox Live has been given the same status as Psn free apps etc and cloud Ai works well online. Sounds like another playstation fan making excuses for buying a console with no decent games yet
Has anyone looked around the website. It's barren. They have only a handful of reviews and everything is hastily assembled and poorly designed. We see so many of these it makes me wonder if someone is just making these websites just to bash Xbox one. Who could be sneaky enough to do that. Surely not the Japanese I mean they haven't ever done anything sneaky...well except ninjas and pearl harbor...omg it's a conspiracy.
