Yes. It bothers me that they contrived this in order to make the XB1 have some value when its being outsold by the system its being combined with.

Don't want the system - or brand - to fail, just want it something that I'd be interested in. Something that offered games I'd want and not just multiplayer titles.

when ps3 launched xbox fans actively wanted ps3 to fail - if sony fans want xboxone to fail how different is it?

Theknightofnights348d ago


Two wrongs don't make a right. Xbox fans shouldn't want PS to fail and vice versa. Just because someone did it before doesn't excuse the people who do it now.

Rumors of the traditional console’s demise have been greatly exaggerated

darthv72348d ago

Technically, these arent traditional consoles. The last "traditional" console would probably be the gamecube.

In the sense of multimedia systems.... these are doing just fine.

@ darth

Yes those systems are traditional consoles. Having multimedia capabilities doesn’t make them less so.

darthv72348d ago

You can think that... but they're not.

PhoenixUp348d ago

They are. By your logic PS1 & Saturn aren’t traditional consoles either

darthv72347d ago (Edited 347d ago )

It's not about logic, it by definition a multimedia device as it plays multiple forms of media. Even the original tg16 cd player is a multimedia device as it plays games AND music. From then on, companies started adding in additional features like movie playback, internet access and such.

dude... just accept that what people think is traditional gaming is not what it is. just because it plays games does not make it a traditional gaming system. Like i said, by definition if it plays more than games out of the box then it is now a multimedia device.

Gamecube was gaming only as out of the box it did not support music, movies, streaming or internet. If you modify the console or buy the more expensive Panasonic Q then you would get more features but as it is it was the last traditional gaming released.

think about this, it is not cost effective for these companies to limit the scope and appeal of these devices to just one demographic. People know that the more something can do the better the perceived value. And to your point, yes, saturn and ps1 are also multimedia devices. They play music discs and with the expansion that was made specifically for them... VCD movies.

I think what you are trying to relate is traditional gaming experience. That simply means being able to put a game in and use a controller to play. you may be thinking of that and associating it to "traditional gaming console"

PhoenixUp347d ago

DS could also do other things besides gaming, you gonna say that isn’t a traditional gaming handheld? Hell even GBA had some movies and television shows released on some gaming carts & GBC could be used as a camera. And many people accurately categorize them as traditional systems.

Consoles adding more features are an evolution of the times. Doesn’t stop the mass populace from referring to them as traditional consoles.
