Is The Xbox One A Victim Of Bad Timing And Unfair Comparisons To The PS4?

Despite their best efforts and a solid system, Microsoft has constantly lagged behind the rival PS4 system both in sales and popularity. In a recent opinion piece, the question is asked if Microsoft is the victim of bad timing in launching after the PS4 and being unfairly compared to the system and their early launch conference blunders.

The story is too old to be commented.

It is victim of Microsoft's arrogance, bad PR and decisions back in 2013. Phil has done an amazing job changing all of that, but those things I mentioned are still haunting the Bone

Garethvk944d ago

Thank you, I think that sums it up well. I prefer the PS 4 but I have wondered why the Xbox One despite doing well just seems to be stuck in second and despite their best efforts, Sony just keeps moving on.

@n4rc

how the hell was it not a fair fight?
did ms have a smaller budget? less capable people? less opportunities?
its the fanbase THEY made that rejected their policies.
it was their job to figure out what the people wanted.
if it was something truly special and new, they should have presented it in such a way.but making kinect mandatory which was already a pos, hardware weaker than ps4, always online , no sharing etc were their policies and i dunno how someone can be stupid enough to call them new and awesome. they could be implemented 8 years. they werent because they were anti customer garbage.
ms thought they were a mononpoly in us and do whatever the hell they wanted
sony was an a$$ like that in ps3's early year too and look what it did to console gap of 80-100 million units, brought it down to 0.
you cant seriously be suggesting that its the consumer's fault that xbox isnt doing as well as the ps4?
while phil has done good in removing those bs policies,the damage is done and ms is still ms.
360 succeeded because of the variety,simplicity and ease of development. remember how many exclusive jrpgs it was getting? yea now its ZERO . every year, and no matter how you may like it their biggest attractions are shooters and a forza. it remains mostly barren all year.people also havent forgotten how the 360 was abandoned.
xbox even without the three still lacks all 3 of those , little variety, visibly weaker(nomatter how little it matters to you)

Army_of_Darkness943d ago (Edited 943d ago )

Yup. Having a bad First impression is what sabotaged the xbone and MS trying to recover from it will take a sh!tload of work.

subtenko943d ago (Edited 943d ago )

Why was PS1 such a success? Cause it was Sony and it was something new that brought new ideas to what is known as "Playstation"

Why was PS2 so successful? "Playstation"

Why was PS3 successful? "Playstation"

Why is PS4 so successful? "Playstation"

Why will the Matrix be successful? "________" (You know what to put)

Why o why943d ago (Edited 943d ago )

Some people forget it wasn't just about the bodged reveal... more a culmination of that, playstations better appeal, no headstart and, for me more importantly, their whole ethos last gen. Their practices. Sony were no angels but ms took the biscuit. Denying rrod until the threat of serious litigation became overbearing. ... games for the start then complacency at the end, unwillingness to create or nurture their own despite the world and their dog bragging about how cash rich they were. They then tried to switch their focus to the casuals With kinect which was detrimental to their core gamer

The comparisons to 'bankrupt' Sony who outputted far more at a for more consistent rate were bound to influence some people's decisions. The general consensus was that Ms wanted to beat the Sony console to the market so badly they rushed the 360 which lead to one of the biggest hardware failure rates in history. Ms knew releasing simultaneously was going to be tough. Ms just made more mistakes last gen than sony did and the proof is there for all to see. Some people outside fanboydom remember last gen. Some of them have given ms a wide birth for the start of this gen.

breakpad943d ago (Edited 943d ago )

while a lot of westerners dont want to admit it , the main reason of success behind every PStation is because has the support of Japan devs (as it is Japanese company)...just tell me one console in history that didnt have the japan's support and was considered success??? none.. Japan industry is known for quality products but also in games have an upper hand as they have long year experience and talent because games are a pictorial art ...X360 received a temporary support (and success)from Japan only because the lazyness of some devs (aka Capcom, etc) to develop on new engines for PS3 and inability of Sony to quickly offer them development kits for the new system (PS3 was a beast stands easily beside PS4 with no huge differences). also i dont understand the logic that Xbone is a victim ...Victim would be the people who would buy the console with obligatory DRM and Kinect survelliance ...because consumer saw the garbage -anticonsumer policies and rejected the machine -the Xbone is a victim??? ... It is like an overthrown dictatorship , not victim

mikeslemonade943d ago

MS made the wrong business decisions. They should hire me for half the salary and I'd lead them to victory.

nix943d ago

what i find really amusing is that "the online only" and "no sharing" features were out in public months before XBone came out. everyone was furious. one employee was even fired for flaming it up. but that's all MS did. they continued with it in spite of the huge opposition from the gamers.

you no listen. you no get sales.

easy peasy.

moldybread943d ago

nobody can deny the ps4 is doing extremely well but the xbox one has rebounded nicely thanks in large part to a change in management and a change in direction. all in relation to the success sony is having. what is apparent however is even though there is a shift in direction you have a very vocal group of hecklers still festering around on forums waiting to strike any chance they get. this is why the xbox one is still a victim of being the system people want to talk about in a bad way more than the wii u because it's made by microsoft. you have a group out there that is dead set on making sure the xbox one is an inferior product any chance they get. most are likely sony loyalists who have been hanging around for years. the reason is very simple, the xbox has always been a direct competitor to the playstation. that means nintendo are most often left out of the conversations and the rivalries have manifested itself more and more each generation.

this feud has really lost its direction because at the end of the day its about enjoyment the systems provide. why would i allow myself to not enjoy certain games because i want one company to succeed over the other? the public has already spoken against the policies microsoft tried to impose. this forced them to not adopt those policies. it's time to move on but like i mentioned earlier, there is a group out there with a vested interest to not move on because again it really comes down to the competitive nature some have. it's time to grow up and enjoy what you have, not try and take away other peoples enjoyment because you don't like the company.

it is also very fair and normal to compare the xbox one to the ps4. what isn't fair or rational is to suggest only one system can/should do well.

TheRedButterfly943d ago (Edited 943d ago )

@1.1.3

Yes, the brand name has a lot to do with it (in the 7th & 8th generations), but early on PS wasn't a household name.

Why was PS1 such a success? Cause it was Sony and it was something new and because CDs were able to store much more data, lending to better graphics.

Why was PS2 so successful? Because it was also a DVD player.

Why was PS3 successful? Because it was also a BluRay player.

Why is PS4 so successful? Because MS shot themselves in the food.

Brand isn't everything - this isn't Apple we're talking about. PS is great. But you're fooling yourself if you think that a brand name sells 150+ million consoles in a single generation - especially when it is outsold by the underdog in the following generation. (Yes, whether you like it or not, the X360 outsold the PS3 - and even if it didn't, it took a HUGE chunk of the install base, which still supports the notion that Brand isn't everything.)

TheCommentator942d ago (Edited 942d ago )

@ TheRedButterfly

Why was PS1 a success? Because when Sony slapped Nintendo in the face with the Play Station by demading that they own any game designed for the SNES add on, they turned around and bought the rights to games like Final Fantasy(which Square already showed running on an N64)in order to spite the competition.

And the N64 had better graphics. The PS had better CGI.

PS suffered from widespread drive failures, forcing owners to turn their machines sideways or upside down to get them to work. The PS2's biggest failure? Disc read errors that haunted them through nearly an entire generation. Sony knew they were putting crap drives into it too, which is why they designed the machine to stand up. That way, the machine didn't have to lean on your TV like the PS1 when it failed.

Edit:
MS is not the only company who is arrogant. Ken Kutaragi said it didn't matter how much PS3 cost, it would sell because it was a Playstation. The difference is that Sony has already learned from their mistakes.

avengers1978942d ago

@redbutterfly no the 360 did not outsell the PS3... The PS3 is slightly ahead of 360 in sales worldwide, currently the PS3 doubles 360 sales every month, and the winner last gen was the Wii, witch took a chunk of Playstations market share, as did 360. 360 also sold a lot of units due to RROD rebuys and a slew of collectors edition consoles(everyone I know had at least 2 360's.. Making a fan base of around 40 million seem like it was a fan base of around 80 million)

care to elaborate?

the only reason it still haunts them is you guys constantly bring it up like you are on commission lol..

you said yourself its all changed... so why does it still haunt them?

edit... better how? you mean had a conference where an entire group of people didnt go into attack mode? wasnt going to happen.. preorders sold out after e3, i know because it took me 3 days to find a retailer to get one... then the relentless attacks from fanboys and the campaign to lie and discredit started... and it worked

xbox was going to be something different... but these people all demanded changes to take away what made it different then didnt buy it anyways..

point is.. ps4 may still have come out far ahead, but it wasnt a fair fight...

Garethvk944d ago

They have spent huge amounts and still remain far behind the PS4 despite their best efforts in terms of sales and popularity. I would say that if they had a better reveal events and not mangled their first E3 and other events, then they would not be as bad off as they are now.

stuna1944d ago (Edited 944d ago )

Because it never should have happened in the first place! Microsoft had their loyal fanbase, and they have been open to a lot of things over the years, but looking back when do people look at something no longer being fun/enjoyable? Microsoft were effectively going to change that fun/enjoyable moment into a chore!

Sure it's open to debate how far things may have went, but one things that's for certain! The majority of gamers weren't on board with Microsoft's plans, and it's showing now. Another thing to ponder is without the change in leadership and ultimately their change in plan, the Xbox1 as we know it now would be a dead stick in the water!

@narc

So you believe fanboys spreading lies is the reason the Xbox1 is behind the PS4?? With Microsoft touting a 84 to 85 million Xbox 360 fanbase supposedly! Exactly what has prevented the Xbox's own loyal fanbase from supporting the Xbox1!? Forget everyone else.

n4rc944d ago

who said they didnt? my entire friends list has now switched over.. and what kind of logic is that? ps3 had the same fanbase, why hasnt ps4 sold 80m?

you cant honestly tell me the smear campaign didnt have an effect on general perception. every single video online, every single forum and comment section...

the loyal fanbases are so tiny both companies would quickly fold if thats all they had... the casual consumer is what makes or breaks a product and they are easily influenced.

and stop saying the majority of gamers.. thats just so wrong im not even going to bother lol

stuna1944d ago

Almost 22 million gamers on the PS4 caompared to 11 million on Xbox1 is a stark contrast to who's getting the support! This is is only 16 months since release.

Truthfully I don't know if you watched the unveiling of both consoles, but I did and I know what I saw. There were huge differences as far as response wise from not only the crowds present at both unveilings, but immediately afterwards. On these boards at gaming store worldwide. It definitely hit home at Microsoft homebase! Why else were so many changes made, that supposedly couldn't be made made so quickly? Why fix something that technically isn't broken!? Because gaming in general were speaking out about not buying or supporting thhe Xbox1.

The issue I have is people are still walking around today with their heads still in the sand, as if this never happened and that it doesn't share a direct link to where the Xbox1 is today.

Foehammer944d ago (Edited 944d ago )

Xbox has never been a victim

Do ppl think that Sony is lying when they publish the fact that they are in 123 Countries on their own site?

Paragraph 5:

http://www.prnewswire.com/n...

If a product in 42 Countries sells the same as a product in 123 Countries then something has gone very wrong.

To say nothing of anti-American sentiment in the world.

IGiveHugs2NakedWomen943d ago

E3 2013 isn't the Xbox One's problem at the moment. I believe that the console needs to do three things:
1. Diversify it's library of games
2. Develop more exclusive content that will entice gamers to buy the console year round, not just for the holidays
3. Overcome the perception that it's an extremely weak gaming machine

In my opinion, the Xbox One needs to add more exclusive content so that it can compete with it's main competition year round and that will only happen when Microsoft decides to take risks by developing new IPs.

XelaKNight943d ago

See this is what I hate. These consoles have differences but they are similar in various ways. Who cares anymore? Honestly if you like PS4 great I think the ps4 is awesome I love the console. If you like the xbox one then thats fine too. I love both consoles.

Eonjay943d ago

No I think in retrospect, Microsoft realizes that you can't nonchalantly telly ure fanbase to suck it up, unilaterally kill physical industry, lauch more expensive, have a less powerful system and underestimate your competition.

The Xbox 360 was only as successful as it was because Sony made similar arrogant decisions with the PS3.

Or you can just face the reality that Sony translated their message more effectively.

Either way, you have to congratulate consumers for supporting the industry no matter what side you support.

AngelicIceDiamond943d ago

Point 1: @N4rC Not a fair fight? MS did that to themselves. If they would of at least paid attention when that whole Adam Orth thing went down that March they wouldn't be in a deep whole at the reveal.

"you said yourself its all changed... so why does it still haunt them?"

Well the sales for one. As soon as everyone picked up a PS4 the world just seems to be wanna stick with that. The truth is when consoles get revealed, especially at the same time, minus the fanboys people are usual a fair 50 50.

Its who ever has the better offering and overall better appeal. PS4 simply had a better appeal after the screw ups MS did.

Point 2: Think about it, Adam Orth deal with it happens. MS evaluates the backlash. Makes adjustments 2 months prior to policies we have now.

Or better yet MS should of released a survey telling us about those policies or hinting at those potential policies months prior. But then again we were dealing with a very different MS back then.

But at the end of the day MS did it to themselves. If all that never happen I believe Sony would be at 23 mill while MS would be at 20 mill.

The only thing people would complain about is that price on X1.

kayoss943d ago

Once the juggernaut start moving nothing on earth can stop it.

Chevalier943d ago

"ps3 had the same fanbase, why hasnt ps4 sold 80m?"

Uh... Wtf? The Xbox 360 Also has 80 million sold how come your not also asking why the biggest American primary audience hasn't switched over to Xbone yet?!

"To say nothing of anti-American sentiment in the world."

How is it KFC, McDonald's, Coke and IPhone and a bunch of other American products universally popular and now it's anti-American sentiment that's the problem?

KwietStorm943d ago

Pre-orders for new video games consoles are always sold out. Don't know where you've been for the last 20 years. It was entirely fair. As others have already said, nobody but Microsoft dug their own grave, and now the onus is on Phil and the team to dig themselves out. Microsoft could not possibly have made a worse impression with the onset of the generation. So to sit here and act as if they were thrown in the ring defenseless, or were cheated somehow, is just..stupid. "Different" doesn't mean better, and it was the fact that these different policies were being forced upon the same people who supported Xbox for years, that changed everything. It didn't help that Matrick was the epitome of a tool either.

johndoe11211943d ago

It should be selling better than it is given how great the Xbox One truly is

ThinkThink944d ago

It's not a victim of anything. It's tracking better than the 360 which was hugely successful.

AngelicIceDiamond943d ago

@Kurt Nothing but agrees here. That horrendous reveal and policies are still in the nightmares of MS and are still paying for it in some cases.

Maddens Raiders943d ago

The XBoX1 just needs to sit back and take it, like the PS3 took it back in the day. Except this time, there won't be a happy ending...unfortunately.

MasterBaker943d ago

No happy ending? You never really know, but it won't be easy to make a comback and I don't mean that they will comback and sell more consoles than the ps4. I'm just saying that maybe it won't be outsold 2:1. They'll need to pull off a couple miracles, but maybe you're right. We'll see.

kparks943d ago

I do believe that is still a lingering problem the rereveal and E3 were atrocious and to blame it on the ps4 and community is a joke! after the reveal we desperately tried to warn them what they were doing wrong M$ pretty much gave us the middle finger and went ahead with there E3 they could of changed so much in that timeframe..the only enemy the xbox has is microsoft! Plus sony had all there ducks in a row great system size, and specs, awesome controller there was literally nothing sony did wrong. they did so well at the reveal and E3 no1 seemed to care about the ps+ charge after we saw M$ faceplant on stage!

Nirvana31591943d ago

Xbox one is a victim of underpowered hardware, weak vision, inability to expand in-house development studios, poor business decisions and an extremely talented competitor.

muzikjunkie80943d ago

Underpowered hardware? The ps4 has faster gpu ram thats it. We wont be seeing a performance gap like we did on the original xbox vs ps2. The only real advantage the ps4 has is more games can do 1080p. Nothing special imo.

avengers1978943d ago

XB1 reveal and first E3, left a horrible taste in consumer's mouths... XB360 was an exclusive ghost town toward the end of its life cycle, relying on 3rd party games to keep them going. MS XBOX PR and heads did a terrible job, leading to major changes at the top. XB360 inflated numbers due to many re-buys(in fact I don't know anyone that didn't have at least 2 Xbox 360's) making a fan base of around 40 million seem like a fan base of 80 million. Finally 360 launched a year to 18 months ahead of PS3 giving them a boost and early sales lead, making games like Mass Effect and Bioshock exclusive to 360 at the time, no such advantage this time. Oh and MS still spends more money on third party "exclusive games" instead of investing in first party, with a large number of there "exclusive games" on PC instead of only on Xbox.

That is what is "hurting" them at the moment. They still managed to outsell the Wii U after a year on the shelves, and still have sold 11 million consoles witch isn't bad, but when comparing it to PS4 sales of 23 million it looks bad, the XB1 has an uphill battle but the changes they have made will help them, and let's hope they learned from there previous mistakes.

_-EDMIX-_943d ago (Edited 943d ago )

I would say its based on the decisions on the overall design to begin with. Nevermind 2013, XONE's design wasn't just some accident that happened that year, they very much planned for it to be that way. The decision to make XONE the way it was revealed to be was the big mistake.

Regardless of who games were, no one wants what they where offering, not XONE fans, not PS3 fans, no one....

Gamers like choice, they want to share their games, hold their games, give their games away etc. That is their choice to do so.

Hell, its why I like PC, yes...I get steam and Origin games often, but I still shop around. I'm almost done with Mass Effect 2 and want to buy 3 on PC since I've played the whole series on PC thus far.

A BOXED copy cost LESS on Amazon then on Origin (even if it was on Steam, I would have likely costed MORE)

http://www.amazon.com/gp/of...

and

https://www.origin.com/en-u...

and I do this all the time, regardless. Some times its Steam or Origin, sometimes I buy a hardcopy off Amazon if the price is right. BUT its about CHOICE!

What MS was trying to do had more to do with trying to get rid of retail then trying to give consumers an option. Hell, if it was just an option, I would LOVE IT!

But the fact that they only wanted one method of distribution made no sense and it was clear it was for political gain, not for consumer benefit.

Why not just make 2 skus? We already get many skus for games, for languages for editions, limited, special, goty etc soooooo why just 1 method despite it being clear we can just have both?

There is not benefit to 1 method, 1 method makes no sense for consumers and no current medium has 1 method. That only benefited MS.

Having a bad impression didn't hurt MS....having a BAD SYSTEM DID! It had nothing to do with HOW they told consumers this, it had nothing to do with HOW they delivered this...it had to do with that they where doing it PERIOD! The anger from gamers is what made that reversal happen along with seeing just how many gamers were siding with PS4 very, very vocally.

I have no respect to any gamer that has the nerve to make it seem as if the only thing wrong with what MS was doing was the "how" and that some how consumers um.."overacted". Us gamers know what they tried, we know many methods exist and no benefit comes to a consumer with LESS methods of buying a game. I'm happy for XONE gamers that don't have to deal with the BS that was going to be XONE, as I don't like the company, doesn't mean I don't like its gamers, we all game and still have staple beliefs as consumers.

@Avengers1978, Agreed, agreed and agreed.

subtenko943d ago

Ya know I don't know Phil personally but I think I can see that he wants to bring the best out of his sector in gaming and Im cool with that. It's the douchebags like Don Matrik that kinda got to me...mostly the presentation. lol

Business is business but Cheers for Xbox employees that actual care. Best of luck to yall in turning the Xbox division into something better. We need competition or we end up with companies like comcast and time warner pullin BS (We dealing with that with publishers mostly tho already)

I dont know is it victim or what.. But today i opened my xbox one try to record a game about five minutes via Game DVR. It's recorded and then i tried to upload it to sky drive and it says YOU NEED A XBOX LIVE GOLD MEMBERSHIP... Is it joke or something ?? I have PS4 and i can upload video games clips to youtube and facebook. Xbox One cant do that and MS wants from me to pay 50 US $ or something for uploading a video game clip to a skydrive.. You must be kidding me.. ( Sorry for my English.. I m turkish.. )

alabtrosMyster942d ago

The problems are not PR based, PR only does the communication around the product (they explain and try to sugar coat it's hardware and features to the public)...

Now if one or both are off target (one could argue that the XB1 as it was when announced it was off the mark both in therms of software, policies AND hardware)... this is the results of a series of bad decisions that came about when the project was started around 2009/10, MS sold tons and tons of Kinect, people who were responsible for the kinect project and vision took over the xbox division (the Mattrickians) so they designed a machine for Kinect, for media and geared toward selling interactive publicity to you, they got so high on their "vision" that they even believed it would come to fruition, no matter how flawed it may be!

Now Mattrick is gone, the software/policies portion of the equation are likely fixed (they are as far as I can tell) but the console is still not as powerful as it could be and people only want it if they can get it for very cheap (bundles, rebates, price cuts) ... otherwise they go with the better option, namely the PS4.

I don't know why people make so much drama around this, unless you want Halo whatever or Gears there is really not much going on for this console.

Was the PS3 a victim of bad timing and unfair comparisons to the Xbox 360!? Yes, because the Xbox 360 had a full year and in some cases a year and a half to garner support from the vast majority of 2nd, 3rd and Independent developers. Microsoft publicly badmouth the PS3 and helped others to quite openly offer little to lesser support to the PS3 platform.

Microsoft was usually quick and the first to point out shortcomings when it came to multiplat titles on the PS3. Just one of their favorite taglines; "Better on Xbox 360"!

Now to the topic at hand; "Is the Xbox1 a victim of bad timing and unfair comparison to the PS4?" Absolutely and Unequivocally No! Simply because the systems unveilings and eventual releases were on equal grounds! Even the explanation as to what these consoles were bringing to the table were on equal grounds. It's just that one consoles makers interpretation of what they may have thought the gamers wanted, ended up sounding like a "Dictatorship"! And the other console maker used that fumble to their advantage and are continuously capitalizing on it, while the other is still fighting still just to get back in good graces with tthe gamers.

Is it unwarranted? No!

Should people forgive, and try to move past it? Yes!

Should people forget!? Absolutely "Not"!

Way worst then whats going on now.everyone hated sony even the gaming sites.

It's funny how things change though.

Laugh now cry later is the best way to sum it all up.

And MS should went with a more capable console didn't they see all the blades grass comparisons from the ps3/ 360 days.

And have a bubble dude on me.

rdgneoz3943d ago

In the PS360 days, you had "Lens of Truth" and such comparisons picking apart every game. Putting stuff under a magnifying glass and analyzing the smallest details.

Nowadays, we have people like Sessler saying "graphics aren't everything"....

Fro_xoxo944d ago (Edited 944d ago )

ah Xbox ONE.

When in history has Xbox led the console market?

Even if the XO launch were all rosy and blissful (It was, for 3 mill ppl out the gate).. The PS4 would still be the market leader in terms of sales.. Since WiiU didn't do it. Wii did it last-gen.

A Japanese console always leads the market.

Will there ever be an anomaly? That remains to be seen.

Professor_K942d ago

Its never lead the console market but its still very relevant and IMMENSLY talked about, further proof that the Xbox does not need to lead to survive. Maybe it never will but wheather it turns out as an amazing machine or not is totally up to debate.

I thinks its a onederfull console and i really dont need sale stats to prove it

Christopher943d ago

Unfair comparisons? What comparisons were unfair? The price tag? The fact one forced a camera on you and the other didn't? Hardware?

I don't think there are "unfair comparisons" in this. Just one was more of what gamers wanted and the other wasn't. It's going to have to settle with not being able to do some things the PS4 does that gamers want just as the PS4 will have to settle with not being able to do some other things that other games want.

MasterBaker943d ago

You don't get it, people look at the Xbox one and make fun of it because it's fat and that's just not fair. What if it's genetics? Not all consoles can be skinny and beautiful, so stop judging it! All consoles are beautiful.

(Sarcasm) just in case some people are too dumb.

MasterCornholio943d ago

Yeah I agree with you that the comparisons were quite fair. Its not like they were comparing a 3DS with the PS4.

Nineball2112943d ago

And the thing is, what Jack was saying should have just been common sense! It's amazing what happens when you try to provide something that people actually want.

I'm sure (or at least hope) the MS and Sony reveal this generation is a case study in a business class in some university. LOL
