its a good time to rely on 3rd party isnt it? look at whats coming from 3rd party this holiday and onwards.. why do people under estimate it? strong 3rd party relations is one of the keys to success. you dont release your big exclusive games at the same time your 3rd party partners are releasing their big games. sony are doing everything right.
dont forget 3rd party... they have a way bigger impact than exclusive titles ever would. PS4 also gets the best version of these 3rd party games. only the BIG exclusives sell consoles. the gears remake didnt do anything, forza did nothing and is the worst selling forza game in series.. tomb raider?? not big enough. theres only halo and the effects of it wont last forever. the only thing that can help xbox one is being $100 less than PS4. xbox cant compete with playstation at same price.
than tell us the actual sales for xbox one microsoft. why you hiding it? we know last we got from sony was 25m. is xbox one even at 15m sold yet? does anyone know?
with PS4 you can do both. it dominates both categories.
i really do get a kick out of the xbox guys dismay at the current state of this generation.. keep it coming guys... man its gonna be a bloodbath in here when xbox one wins its one holiday month in just the US. you guys are going to be boasting like xbox one dominated the entire universe. prolonged constant denial can have a really bad effect if not corrected. some of you guys are literally living in a fantasy world in you own heads.
sony really rubbing it into microsofts faces now. exclusive marketing for star wars and call of duty, price drop and still 2 more press conferences this year. the only real firepower microsoft have is halo 5. it'll definately sell some consoles but wont be enough to get anywhere near playstation.
i'll translate all phil spencer interviews.
'we really wanted to bend people over and bleed them dry with our original vision for xbox one but when consumers, who we thought were alot more stupid realised this, we had to change the vision we wanted. we also needed a new face. which is where i came in. my main job is to try and reverse our image using our trademark decieving tactics and i feel im doing quite well. the xbox one is all about and has always been about the...
yea thats great and everything but it still wont hold up to PS4 exclusives. Uncharted 4 will look better than all those games you mentioned. the fact is, xbox one will ALWAYS be weaker than PS4. i mean shit, your boasting about a racing game being 1080p.. thats how low the standards are now for xbox one.
yea and how many playstation fans are waiting to shift to the PS4? PS4 sales are getting better and better and theres gotta be a price cut coming too. the first one for PS4.
LMFAO at people that think it sold 10m!! HAHAHAHAHA. its not even close to 10m sold. seriously!! use your heads people!
same! heck, i still have all of bethesda's games from last gen. i still have oblivion. it was one of the first games i bought for PS3.
this is what i dislike about partnerships like this. bethesda are too cosy with microsoft. every game they've released since last generation has come with the tag ' F U ps fans, go buy an xbox to play our game properly' and they still havent compensated in any way. oh i forgot, they did give a discount on the 1 year late skyrim DLC for like 7 days only! wow could you believe that! now i can play dragonborn at 10fps! thanks bethesda.
ill enjoy the heck out of fallo...
world leader and microsoft just dont go together.
the comments section is a hilarious dick measuring contest. do you any of you kids really even know what this means?
sony couldnt kill the playstation brand even if they tried. they had a go killing it with the PS3 but the damn thing still wouldnt go. the playstation brand is just strong as hell. when it comes to videogames, its the go to console now like nintendo used to be in 80's and early 90's. i think PS1 is the most important PS console. the building blocks and the foundation for where the brand is today. stronger than ever and top of the mountain.
that correction would be a lie. how is xbox one selling well when its like 10m behind its main competition and also well below microsofts expectations? oh because its beating 360? than this reason will not last long as there's no way xbox one will keep pace with the 360.
even the PS4 figure is too high but the xbox one prediction is stupid. 110m? how? the 360 was the best microsoft got and even that took 8 years to reach 80m sold. the xbox one will NEVER reach those heights.. so i say 50m is a safe bet.
they're waiting, ready to pounce on sony when xbox one sells 10k more this holidays IN THE US. what a comeback! only 50 more holiday seasons and xbox one will be half way there.
man im stoked!! i really thought they would only show this new quantic dream game for the entire conference! thanks for the enlightenment gamingbolt!
it HAS to be different for xbox next gen. another gen like this and they'll have no choice but to kill xbox. i think for microsoft xbox MUST beat playstation next gen...and not just in US either. they have to do something to get a foothold in europe some how.
