Xbox Is For The Players

Let’s hop in our magical time machine and head back to the Xbox One reveal 2013. It was a horrible moment in Xbox history to say the least. Announcing always online, some horrendous DRM policies & making TV a priority Xbox seemed to be completely disconnected from what gamers wanted.

Powerful hardware, great features and now diversity. Xbox is definitely for the players and doing better at it. It just needs to sort out games in the exclusives department but otherwise it's really turned things around.

Can't wait for the beastly One X !

Doing better at it....lol

I don't see Microsofts Horizon, still don't see their answer to Uncharted or a game like Gravity Rush, Nier, Nioh, Yakuza 0 a good well crafted remake like Crash Bandicoot people really want, a JRPG like Persona 5

New franchises, sequels, remakes, remasters, DLC expansions, that's just from the first half of the year.

Microsoft have had plenty of time to sort their shit out, it dosen't help when they were talking about investing in games years ago which should have been finished development by now yet they are saying roughly the exact same things about "future games" which are apparently another 3-4 years away. It's a constant loop, in 3-4 years they'll probably get to next gen and say something like "Oh we have more games coming, it's just with it being a new generation we want them to get familiar with the console with old franchises like Halo 6 and Gears of War 5, they'll be ready in 3-4 years"

It might not be for you but for Xbox fans who don't get a peptic ulcer every time Forza is mentioned or are looking forward to games like Crackdown, Cuphead, State of Decay 2 etc and appreciate backwards compatibility or digital trading and also appreciate the fact that Xbox has listened after it's initial missteps, it's certainly got better.

"I don't see Microsofts Horizon, still don't see their answer to Uncharted or a game like Gravity Rush, Nier, Nioh, Yakuza 0 "

You've got a PS4 for those?

Like I said, they need to work on their exclusive front but they have righted some of the wrongs.

I mean how much longer do you guys want to wait? That's all you seem to be doing. Is waiting an exclusive feature of the Xbox?

RadicalCannibal313d ago

You just listed a load of single player RPGs. Xbox is for the players, online

Death313d ago

I don't think Microsoft targets as many Japanese gamers as Sony. As for not having an answer for Horizon or Uncharted, Sony doesn't have an answer for Gears or Halo. If you are a racing fan, Sony really doesn't have an answer for Forza or Forza Horizon yet. I don't see their answer to Sea of Thieves or Crackdown either. It's almost like these are two entirely separate companies targeting two distinct groups of gamers with their exclusives.

SynKakarrot313d ago

that's why I have my ps4 and xbox for the for my xbox fav and I'm loving them

imtiyaz6313d ago

MS fanboys think of Gears and Halo as Xbox's staple franchises and elevate them to Nintendo's 'Mario' and 'Zelda', except Gears and Halo aren't even close and are dying franchises, which will never be as critically acclaimed as Nintendo or Sony exclusives. MS made no attempt to reinvent Gears or Halo, like God of War 4 or Zelda were. MS should have killed them years ago and moved on if they had any respect for gaming as an art. Imagine if MS had a franchise consistently rated 90+ on metacritic like Uncharted, they'd keep milking it even after it became as insipid as Gears.

LordJamar313d ago

@septic dont bother with people like him look at what website your on look at your down votes this is not a positive xbox site or even neutral it is a sony fan site

FinalFantasyFanatic312d ago

@Death,

I'm pretty sure we could find a PS game that fills Forza's spot, personally I would like a new Ridge Racer. As for Gears and Halo, they are dying franchises like someone said (Personally I think Final Fantasy is in the same boat). And those were games were THE games to buy an Xbox for, they really need new blood.

@RadicalCannibal

Xbox has a better online service, no disputing that. But there's plenty of games on PS that you can play online, no problem there.

@LordJamar

Were you using this site last gen? No? Then you'd know it was a different story back then, it's not as bias as you think it is, the majority just prefer Playstation this gen compared to last gen where it was Xbox.

If people read the article objectively and leave the fanboyism at the door, they will be able to see that the article is actually on the money when it comes to a game-plan to win back favor with gamers. Having a very powerful console is a great launching pad. They can build around that going forward.

_LarZen_313d ago

Logic don't work here when 9/10 are youngsters that have to defend their plastic box.

trooper_313d ago

Criticism doesn't equal fanboyism.

Razzer313d ago

But like you have said before, Xbox needs more games.

Bigpappy313d ago

You mean more exclusives.

@Septic - "Powerful hardware, great features and now diversity. Xbox is definitely for the players and doing better at it. It just needs to sort out games in the exclusives department but otherwise it's really turned things around."

Sorry but Xbox can't be for the players if they haven't sorted out their own games yet...Games are more important than hardware or features

SynKakarrot313d ago

so much simpler to say not for me instead ....ur opinion not mine and I'm a gamer

TKCMuzzer313d ago (Edited 313d ago )

@Septic
Come on cut it out, stop using the the word 'beast' or 'beastly' it destroys any credibility you may be clinging onto. It sounds so childish which is odd as you are all going on about how its for the hardcore.
Oooh, beastly, sound ridiculous to be honest.

Death313d ago

It's not as bad as the people pretending 1000+ games is the same as no games. People like to use some very niche titles that sell very little as the reason PlayStation is the only console that matters. It wouldn't be so bad if people actually bought the games. Performance wise they might as well be Screamride.

SynKakarrot313d ago

http://n4g.com/news/1188430... wasn't so ridiculous then? just read the first comment and how many agrees on paying 430 to 530 for a ps4, compare that to the X....I guess the xbox x is a beast ..just deal with it....

trooper_313d ago (Edited 313d ago )

Powerful hardware and no impressive games.

It's 2017. Microsoft should have gotten their crap together years ago.

Shadyceaser313d ago

Ok Microsoft who could most likely buy Sony 100 Times with the cash they have in the bank. .. Sony who is just keeping there head above water thanks to the ps4 ... As everything else they sell is bieng killed by the competition.
"no impressive games"
How would you know?
You obviously don't own an Xbox.
I agree Microsoft miss stepped , but Imo its a better service , its a better console and very soon it will be the best console on the market.

Yes I have a PlayStation 4

Not because of Xbox revenue. That is for damn sure.

C02rEthgInDim313d ago

It's good to see N4G still a Sony haven. All about exclusives now.. lol, after it was about 1080p and 3rd party games looking better. Xbox X is going to destroy the competition now with the way games look and play.

Silly gameAr312d ago

Oh please. Everything that MS did was supposed to destroy the competition. Cloud, DX12, The xbox one S, UHD blu ray, and now the xboxonex. You guys fall for the hype every single time.

Rude-ro313d ago

You will have a console that spits in the faces of the loyal that bought the Xbox one.
They basically are saying, software wise, this is all we have so we have to go after those loyal to third party developers.
The entire last year was about the Xbox one x.
AAA games that have been shown off are all about the Xbox one x.
Sure, comment commanders like yourself is bragging about the power, but true consumers are standing there with another console and 6 years of asking themselves why buy an Xbox.

This power thing was because Microsoft released a 360.5 with a very hard time reaching current hd. It was and is a joke. They adjusted the price, sure... but consumers are still standing there wondering why is Microsoft in the gaming business. I mean, technically, they have been in the market to provide gaming longer than others with 30 years of the pc business...
why should the software STILL be a question unless their goal is still only to monopolize and to make sure Sony does not try to redesign hardware that could change computing against microsofts operating systems like they were doing years ago.

SpaceRanger313d ago

"...now diversity."

What diversity? There's more diversity in resolutions across MS' games than there is in genre or story. Sorry Septic, but no matter how much you say a lie, it's not going to come true. There's enough stats and evidence to back that up.

rainslacker312d ago

I miss the days when I actually respected your comments. Maybe you just gave up trying to be normal. You were one of the few Xbox fans on this site who I could cite as not being an idiot, and an example of a person who could make great comments without the silly overzealous bias, or the hate to the competition.

Now though....well, you're just another fan boy.

Such a shame. One of the good one's lost to the troll side.

Bennibop312d ago

@Septic - there is no diversity in Xbox games lineup as it is reliant on third party games which are available on other platforms, do you work for Microsoft as you seem to spin there PR bullsh!t constantly.

Major_Glitch312d ago

The xxboxx? You mean that console that's going to be outsold by the Switch? Welcome to third place MS...again.

Well I will definitely admit the Xbox one X is an absolute Beast for a gaming console I'm more than happy with my PS4 Pro. But if you're going to play a lot of multi-platform so you can go either way I'm not a blind Fanboy I can admit when the power is there.

mike32UK313d ago

The third party players 😎

NiteX312d ago (Edited 312d ago )

PC is on a whole other level with games though. Majority of its user base don't really give a damn about console games. They just play Counter Strike or DOTA, or whatever MMO.
