USGamer: “Our review of Microsoft's new power console, Telltale's layoffs, and more in the latest episode of our flagship podcast.”
That would imply that "Microsft's generation" is in trouble. . In terms of 'righting wrongs', I think the X is one of many steps in the right direction. As for first_party output, I thought they've been doing okay until 2017. . Yes, projects were delayed and cancelled. . amidst all that, they've been doing okay. The 2017 situation is a result of not taking enough risks, and lack of adequate partnerships. . in my opinion. If they had the third_party partnerships like Sony does, they would have their own Nioh, Neir and Yakuza to bolster their line_up this year. . whilst buying time for first_party to cook up something new.
“Can the Xbox One X Save Microsoft's Generation” No. PS4 is lightyears ahead in sales and Sony is bringing the games. The gap will only increase.
Saving is not the same as beating PlayStation. Plus, Xbox is doing pretty well to need 'saving'
Sony fanboys hubris aside X seems to be doing very well. If digital games are bought at the same rate on each console Xbox got a big bump, PS4 took a dive or something in between happened. Over the last few days Xbox versions of some games are consistently outperforming the PlayStation version. Call of Duty has been a spot above on the chart since launch. That is only the US, but it hasn't been the case in the past and the US still accounts for a lot of shooter sales.
LOL oh my days!
Did the article imply that? No.
"That would imply that "Microsft's generation" is in trouble." If you can't see the trouble with Microsoft's current generation then you're a prime example of whats wrong.
Games like Nier, Nioh, and Yakuza historically don't do well on MS systems.
but yeah 2 of those are on PC and yakuza will be too soon enough.
Only software can. MS is weak as hell in that department.
This generation, MS flubbed themselves. The One X will only save the brand in the long run if MS can prove forever-compatibility and Sony somehow doesn't with the PS5.
He's talking to himself let him ramble
Save is a pretty strong word. While they may not have as many exclusives as Sony I'm sure everyone here can agree they definitely righted the ship after their disastrous launch of the Xbox one and are heading in the right direction so long as they do intend to acquire more studios and develop more exclusive content. Time will tell.
That's the thing though. Time will always tell with Xbox. They should have been bringing good, fresh new games, but instead they're focusing on more power and enhanced older games. Apart from Forza, they don't really have anything worth noting. Gamers want games, new stories and experiences, but Xbox do what they do best, and regurgitate games, promises, and empty line ups.
If Microsoft didnt closed studios and bought studios and create new studios, then they could save this gen and start even strong the next one. Create hype behind new titles. Sony and Nintendo show this year that exclusive games are crucial for the sucess of a machine. Even a machine with the power of 0.5 teraflops can get much more sales then the combined sales of 1.13 and another 6 teraflops. Just saying best version of this and best of version of that, will not make a diference at this time of the gen. Because those game can palyed on other machines. The 4k selling point is getting old and is not even real, because more and more games arent running at that rez. So the best weapon would be getting new games with exclusive deals or buying good studios, like EA just did. I think next year will be even worse, because of the games coming from Sony and Nintendo. So many triple AAA games that sell millions, that specs cant do nothing against.
Depends on how long this gen will last. Those with a PS4 but looking to perhaps upgrade with a 2nd, stronger console for multi-platform releases, might be tempted to buy it. Those without a console would seriously consider the XBO X based on power. And those who switched teams from Xbox to Sony might also now pick up an X because of the BC, allowing them to enjoy all their older games again. MS released a great & stong current gen console. Two problems though; MS still lacks in intetesting exclusives. And if Sony comes out next week to announce the PS5, those who are now tempted to buy that powerful X, might just wait it out and go for the PS5 next year...
I dunno about that second point. That's what everyone was saying about the 1S. why get that when the Scorpio is just around the corner? then boom, the 1S sells like crazy for a good 4 months, even beating PS4 on NPD. So not everybody, but there's a decent sized chunk of gamers that will want the latest and greatest regardless of what's in the pipeline.
Beating PS4 in NPD didn't do much though when u consider PS4 outsold Xbox worldwide.
screams of clickbait so I won't bite and go to the site. but I will say xbox may losing the sales race by a wide margin, being out sold 2:1 is no joke. But keep in mind the PS4 probably needs just 1 more year to outsell the PS3. While the X1 might not be outselling the 360, it's still in the same ballpark. So "save" is the wrong word to use.
It may not drastically change this gen. If they Carry over this Xbox one X mindset into next generation , it's whole new battle next gen .
Graphics are cool and all but that alone can't save them. They seem to have forgotten its gameplay that sells. They should have put all that time into creating some great exclusive games for the xbox, thats where ps4 is killing them. Games like sfv, kof 14, nioh, and even yakuza. Great games is the key. This graphics route would eventually kill xbox unless they finally realize this
Lol only one who needs saving is the author
We get it PlayStation won the "WAR" now F off Microsoft and Xbox are doing just fine
No but it can certainly help people be optimistic for the next gen.
