Xbox has Abandoned its Initial Vision

Jason Stettner of Gamerheadquarters writes: "Games; games, games is all that seems to matter in the new direction that Xbox is taking moving further away from its initial media hub focus and alienating Day 1 supporters."

MS can't be trusted. By getting rid of the Kinect port on the new Xbone S and shutting down Xbox fitness is all you need to know. It is broken promises after broken promises.
What is there to stop them from abandoning console gamers completely once all their games are migrated to PC?

But there is one thing that will be brought back, DRM. All their PC games are digital only and is only sold in their own Windows store. This is a trap. When uninformed gamers are tempted to buy more digital games due to the promise of getting a free PC version with the Xbone version, they will once again bring back DRM and always online. That is their plan all along. People, don't fall for the trap and just don't support MS and all their gaming products.

"MS can't be trusted. By getting rid of the Kinect port on the new Xbone S and shutting down Xbox fitness is all you need to know. It is broken promises after broken promises."

So they got rid of the things that nobody wanted in the first place in favor what ppl wanted all along. But yet flip floppers like you would say "yep MS is none gamer with their Kinect, Xbox Fitness, Kinect Sports" if MS held those promises and you would be ridiculing immaturely with the rest of the fanboys. And you would say that because your posts are all the same fanboy like posts predicable with many, many, illogical points and holes for me to correct because you don't know anything, nothing at all.

"What is there to stop them from abandoning console gamers completely once all their games are migrated toPC?"

Tinfoil hat for no reason why would they put all this money in the current X1 the S and Scopio next year throwing millions probably close to billions in marketing these consoles combined to abandoning it because what you said "migrating to pc" when they're already on or going to PC right along side the Xbox consoles simultaneously. Stupid bro that stupid.

"But there is one thing that will be brought back, DRM. All their PC games are digital only and is only sold in their own Windows store." Oh it is now where do you get that from? Clearly you don't know what your even talking about at all you have blind hate for a company so no nobody will listen to you because you don't seem to be the sharpest knife in the kitchen.

You wasting time trying to use reason on these fools Ms just cant do nothing right in their eyes.

You said everything i was thinking about drakefan and his tin foil hat. lol

By this logic Sony can't be trusted either. They abandoned the PS Vita, Move, PS TV, etc. Who knows what's going to go down with VR or PS Now.

Companies are going to abandon anything that doesn't get much sales. So stop with this 'MS can't be trusted' BS. It's not exclusive to them.

PC has been digital dominant for years now. So bringing up DRM to discredit MS' foray into PC gaming is void.

Scratch move off your list.

Sony might have abandoned it like Microsoft did with Kinect but they are repurposing it for VR.

I have to agree with Jake on this one. While Angelice is quick to dismiss what he's saying, there is much truth in what Drake has brought up. Since launch, Microsoft has made A LOT of 180 moves, and this is great for the consumer, but none of those moves were made simply because consumers ask them to. Microsoft was beaten to a pulp by Sony before they realized they needed to give consumers what they wanted. But it didn't just end at Kinect or the price, it also ended with things like Hololens in adoption of VR (which PHIL didn't think was a very good idea before compared to Hololens) or just plain throwing every Xbox exclusive away to the PC in hopes to offset the loss on the console. Or maybe its the XB Scorpio taking the fame from the XB1 and XB1 S misfortunes, which doesn't even support VR, no PC support, AND is significantly less powerful. The power difference wouldn't be so bad if all platforms were supported across the board equally. But this is basically MS admitting that the XB1 was a bad idea and that they are trying to write it's wrongs in the hearts of its fans.

You try way too hard, but you are nothing more than a parrot with no unique thought pattern.
blah blah blah blah... hate hate hate...

Why are you so insulted by the existence of xbox? You are one serious SonyJusticeWarrior and quite frankly, your comments are empty and devoid of anything constructive.

Xbox abandoned an initial vision that was completely off the mark. No one wanted that vision and as a collective gaming community, we made sure that they heard that fact. Since then, team Xbox have made huge changes to the platform to accommodate the desires of gamers.

Now we have a MUCH better offering from MS in the Xbox 1 than ever before. Even the future roadmap has been laid out in order for consumers to make educated and informed decisions about their gaming purchases.

Pick up your soapbox and peddle your hatred for xbox somewhere else.
