Part one of our series about what each company has done right, wrong, and what they need to do to win the console war. First up Xbox 360.
Comone give uss MSN ! ;)
Personally , couldn't give a crap about what company suceeds. As long as their are good games out. At the moment, Xbox 360 has the games i prefer, so i will keep with it. Don't see why people care about how more billions corporations get.
I agree with the author's conclusions that MS has done most things right with a few hiccups here and there. I would have prefered that they spend a little bit more and gave us a two sku pricing structure with a HD standard. Other than that I am extremely happy with the console.
They do need a monthly newsletter or something telling you what's coming up on Live, or even what's available right now. Asking me to search for new content when there is no new content wastes my time and frustrates the public. We can all get messages, so why not use it?
Getting a sort of ad from MS telling me the release dates of games, demos, arcade titles. Of course there should be an option to disable this if it gets too annoying.
About the article, I thought it was a great read and really talked about what are the good, and bad are with ways to make it better. Can't wait for the next one!
They should send it through the messaging system on XBL.. Newsleeter is a good idea you should call MS and suggest it b/c they do listen to the customers!!! Also he said MS has done we'll besides a few hiccups here and there.. I can't wait to see what he has to say about Sony!!
ROFL...Thank you some who agrees.
Personally, Microsoft has done a well effort with this generation of hardware and software. Of course, Microsoft has also committed a few setbacks. I believe MS did the right thing by releasing their console one year before the competition. By doing so they were able to have a one year lead before the competition, plus, have the advantage of increasing their software line-up to entice the consumers.
Personally, MS did the right choice with having two SKU units for the Xbox 360. In my opinion they should price drop the Core Unit in order to attract more casual consumers.
XBL and XBLA is indeed a selling point for the Xbox 360. But I believe that MS should work on some minor issues that I have about XBL. Especially in the area of Matchmaking and Player Review (their current Reputation System lacks detail, it should include more of an ebay type rep system). And what's the deal with delayed DEMO's and release dates.
I believe MS is currently doing a nice job. They listen to the consumer (well, most of the time), and are creating a unique infastructure for developers...
Also, I want to bet that sooner or later people like gametime, and all the other PSfanboys will be flaming soon of this thread.
this is correct but their getting better so yeaaa
Even when things are good, consumers are always looking for more. More improvement, more games, more innovation, more community, more information, more accessibility, etc.
That's a totally normal desire. And I believe MS is up to the task. They have proven that they are listening to gamers and continually improving services, such as that latest XBL update.
With existing games like Fight Night Round 3, PGR3, GRAW, Oblivion, Call of Duty 3, I've been very busy. And with major game releases such as Chromehounds, Prey, Rainbow Six and Gears of War scheduled for release later this year, I can't see how anyone would be disappointed.
I've owned consoles since the original Nintendo Entertainment System and I've been happy with each successive console I've bought (luckily, I didn't buy the Saturn). However, I have to admit, the 360 has provided everything I've ever wanted/dreamed of in a gaming console. And with the upcoming XBLA, MS has exceeded my expectations.
