Good job Phil. You sure have turned Xbox around. /s

Maybe they should just rehire Don Mattrick again because if this is true Phil hasn't done anything different or turned Xbox around

Ghost_of_Tsushima92d ago (Edited 92d ago )

I wish they’d hire someone to take Phil’s position! Even Mattrick would be much better at this point.

I’d like to give Xbox another chance but with the direction Phil’s leading Xbox and the lack of exclsuives it’s hard to do that.

Interesting... i am reminded of the sales articles between 360 and ps3 and how one side would say the RRoD was padding the numbers.

Now we have a comparison of 360 to xbo and yet that same side is some how forgetting the padded 360 numbers. Truly interesting.

To MS, a sale is a sale but to gamers we know better. People buy multiple units for various reasons. Because they want to upgrade to a new version, to have another in the house and even to replace a defective unit. We all have our reasons to have more than one.

The takeaway is this. Pretty much every xbo sold is a legit sale (no major issues to report) while the same cant be said for 360.

@Darthv72
No one knows their numbers.
I am sure it is still padded by this same fan site. Everyone knows that.

Haha nice try man. Many questions remain. Did MS count the under warranty consoles or didn't they? The MS crowd always said they didn't so.....

Then again if they did count them is the MS crowd now ready to admit that the x360 was a pos when it launched? It seems the MS crowd ends up with poo in their pants no matter the outcome XD.

let me play the devil's advocate here.

Phil might actually be doing a good job. it is possible that the situation would be even worst if not for Phil :p

morganfell91d ago

The guy at the wheel did a good job. It is possible that the Titanic could have hit an even bigger iceberg and they would have lost everyone on board.

81BX92d ago

Weird!?!?! After the abysmal launch I would say this is excellent.

lxeasy91d ago

Damn truly an uphill battle

shloobmm391d ago

They don't need to turn Xbox around. How is being basically on pace with an 80 million seller a bad thing? The stupidity.

LastCenturyRob91d ago

Yes, Phil definitely did help right the ship..but imagine "if" the X1 was introduced without the Kinect (even though I like it) and those resources went to a more powerful console. At least the X will bring higher end gaming to the masses at a very reasonable price.

mandingo91d ago

You’re dumb if you think he hasn’t help turn Xbox around. Launch was a complete disaster.

Xbox One received its slimline model one year earlier than Xbox 360 did, yet XO's sales ares still falling behind 360 in the same timeframe.

There's nothing Microsoft can do that can reverse the trend.

Ghost_of_Tsushima92d ago (Edited 92d ago )

They need to get some solid exclusives, kill the Xbox “One” name, and start over completely.

A fresh start to regain trust and do things right is the only way to truly turn things around.

kneon92d ago

Sure, but they can't just pull exclusives out of thin air. It takes years, they would have had to have spent the money long ago in order to build the teams needed to produce some top quality exclusives.

“Sure, but they can't just pull exclusives out of thin air. It takes years, they would have had to have spent the money long ago in order to build the teams needed to produce some top quality exclusives.”

They claimed they poured $1 billion into 1st party back in 2013. They’ve had time.

ABizzel192d ago

I've been saying this for a while. XBO is never going to catch on like they want, and XBO-X while great hardware wise, is just another misstep, because at it's core it's still part of that same brand that consumers don't care about.

They should have took the loss and dropped XBOs down to $199 and held off on XBO-X and made a brand new console that released holiday 2018. That would give them a much better CPU (cheapest form of Ryzen they could produce), and could have popped in a custom RX 680 GPU (should be around 8 TFLOPS, and reduced form of Vega) into the console and got off the same launch cycle as PlayStation just like Nintendo did. Sure they wouldn't have the most powerful next-gen console, but they would have the same benefits the 360 did by launching first by at least 1 year, and more than likely being cheaper almost the entire generation, because that's the only way Xbox can directly compete with PlayStation based on console sales history.

Also by launching in 2018 it would give them an entire year to dedicate to backwards compatibility to ensure that it's up and running at launch, so the transition is easier for them. It would also give them time to make sure all XBOX games in the current pipeline transition over to the new console, and any New IP's they started on in 2016 / 2017, will be able to release on the new console by 2018 / 2019 / 2020 instead of the same Halo, Froza, and Gears.

trooper_92d ago

That's not going to do anything.

Microsoft doesn't have unlimited money they can keep throwing at their gaming division.

Xenophon_York92d ago

@ABizzel1—

Dang—you have a great natural business sense. Your plan about Microsoft releasing a next generation console in two thousand and eighteen is air-tight. How an executive at the company wasn't able to get something similar to this implemented is astounding.

Keep up the forward thinking. (And regarding forward thinking, I hope you are in the Sony camp. Microsoft is going to ruin gaming if not stopped.)

DialgaMarine92d ago

@Kneon You’re right, but that argument would only work if we were still in XBO’s first year. All you have to do is compare PS4’s AAA library to XBO’s, and you’ll see the problem. Sony invests in the long term; they’ve been doing so since PS1. MS spent years taking the route of throwing money at third parties/ doing hostile takeovers of developers, that now they have nothing to show for it. Their internal studios can’t produce anything of quality that isn’t the same 3 IP’s that people have been playing on XB for 10+ years. They’ve had more than enough time to make XBO have a solid exclusives library; no less than Sony did with PS4, and you clearly see PS4 shining.

Aceman1892d ago

If they went back to how the original xbox felt. I loved the original system, I played that more than my 360. The X1 I sold to a friend a mere 4 mths after purchasing the console around quantum break period.

I'm not spending another 500 on their system until they show they're more about games then the damn system itself.

@ Infected

Microsoft can't drop the Xbox One name unless they make a 9th generation console

Ghost_of_Tsushima91d ago (Edited 91d ago )

Then they should’ve just wait and launched a next generation Xbox in 2018 with 8TF, 12gb ram, and a new CPU for $499.

Then they would’ve had more time to get 1st party launch games ready such as Halo 6. They could’ve also achieved Native 4K across the board by doing so.

360 will never look back now.
