Microsoft screwed up the reveal big time. I said right then and there that because they told people it needed the check in and all the other fascist crap during the reveal, that this first impression would be carried with them throughout the generation.

Which is what makes their reveal so shocking. They knew for months they were going to get bashed from hell to back and they went ahead with it. What morons.

They know, because EVERYONE pretty much knows,... #28.1

I'm really thinking this is a troll article meant to make PC gamers look bad.

Because the argument for playing PC isn't....I can't tell difference between resolutions or frames per second. The PC gamers who play PC and gloat about always do so because THEY DO notice the difference between resolutions and frames. They like them. They want more.

As a PC/Console gamer myself, I can accurately say that the consoles took a leap up to where the ave... #30

The guy doesn't make much sense.

He says, he has no desire to play Garden Warfare or Dead Rising 3 now that they are coming to different platforms? OK...because we are only supposed to play games when they are exclusive?

He talks about how he can just play many of these games on PC, but then complains about how there isn't much of a leap between 360/One or PS3/PS4 so why bother. Doesn't that affect the PC version too? For most people even with... #29

Redskins and Eagles?

Well not to be expected. Every year Madden has a hard on for certain players and teams that go nowhere. #2

Yes but the key point is, one side thinks their service being better is one of the reasons they bought the console.

So when that service screws up as much as the other, it sort of removes one of the reasons they told themselves they should buy the more expensive (until recently), less powerful system. #31.1

So do people really expect the Xbox One to sell about 6.9 million (to customers) in the last six months of the year, compared to only 2 million the first 6 months? This is just to match a supply constrained 360. Which again, should be easily beaten by the One, given the plentiful stock everywhere since about 10 days after launch.

It's easy math. I said early on, the Xbox One would be lucky to sell 4-5 million in 2014. People laughed. Who's laughing now?

Some people idiotically claim that it is selling better then 360? Not even close. This is what I've been saying since we started seeing the massive slowdown in sales of XB1 RIGHT after launch...

The truth of the matter is the Xbox 360 sold 8.9 million units in 2006. 8.9 million units DESPITE being supply constrained the first few months of the year. I have little doubt that if not supply constrained it would have sold at least half a million more that year.

Also it's a con to say, the console will be unrecognizable. Well duh, that's what happens to ANY TECH PRODUCT WITH UPDATES. The Wii U will change. The PS4 will change. Steam will be adding stuff...even a full new Steam OS. Your phones will change. Ipads will change. ETC. ETC. ETC.

Which is pretty much every one. So just because they can update and implement new features, just like any device, doesn't really give it any sort of edge, because that's basic... #17

#1 It's a very low level of support compared to Nintendo and Sony. Of course PC gets a ton of exclusives, yet generally smaller and indie-r. But Microsoft simply doesn't have the studios to compete with either via the first party. Plus most of their stuff won't be out until 2016 or pretty much near it.

#2 No they didn't listen to their fans, that's why they're in the spot they are in. The time where IT MATTERS TO LISTEN is when the console still h... #16

Probably not. $299 is still a premium price.

It would get alot of people off the fence and increase sales sure, but sales wouldn't be massive.

$199, yeah I could see THAT being a game changer price wise, but $299 isn't $199, and that $100 makes a huge difference.

But you see, if they sell it at $199 then they basically lost any benefit of bringing out a new console versus still selling just the old one, which is where they are basica... #1.6.2

It shouldn't be hard to understand for Microsoft. Business people have long known that it is almost impossible to change a bad first impression. This is literally 101 type stuff for beginners.

It happens to products all the time. I haven't seen a roll out this bad since New Coke.

What's mind blowing is that Microsoft KNEW this, because it's literally common sense, had all the info at their fingertips due to millions of negative posts on tho... #1.2.8

Well right now as a DD owner it's 70 percent off and is only $5.99. (45 percent + 25 percent current discount until July 29th, where past that it'll just be 45 percent off)

Not sure if I'll buy it, but there is a significant discount. #3

TROLLING for analyzing the article?

Insane.

It's not called trolling when you do the MATH.

DO THE MATH.

Then analyze what the math tells you.

Did you see me respond negatively to anyone else?

Or did you see someone who read the article and actually worked the numbers.

Sometimes this site is just literally insane. You use your brain, and get punished. Good luck with... #19

We don't know how TLOU PS4 will turn out, but yes there are some 1080p to 4k versions of last gen games (because they made a PC version) that indeed look better then some PS4/XB1 games.

We also don't know what the master assets were created on TLOU. Did any of the naysayers stop to think that maybe they knew a PS4 was coming, or expected one to, and thus developed the game with better assets with that in mind? It stands to reason considering they are indeed making t... #3.1.5

Wow those are some LOW numbers. Like dire low. Run the numbers, you'll see.

Let's take the upper revenue number of TWO billion and divide by the cheapest SKU of $399.

2 billion/$399

=5,012,531

This means they cannot possibly be expecting more then 5 million sales worldwide, and likely far less for the coming year.

Let's also take the lowest number by a mid-range price, say if half of FY'15 s... #17

Hopefully the multiplayer is similar to Rainbow Six Vegas 1.

That was some amazing multiplayer. 2 seemed to have matches that were too short.

Oh and they need to keep that story from Patriots and get it into something. The story seemed too good to shelve. Wonder if they felt any outside pressure? #2

Voice control will always be inferior to a remote control. It simply is. People that think otherwise haven't thought it through.

Voice control gets a passing grade if you want to switch directly to a specific channel, but even then if your remote is close by, the remote is faster.

For all channel guide navigation purposes, not to mention DVR control, a remote control is massively faster. I can browse through hundreds of channels on my remote in under a... #7

What people forget is that with PC's, you don't need to always buy a new PC, but instead can improve a PC.

For instance, if you bought an i7 920 and built a relatively cheap PC in 2008-2009, in 2012 you could of upgraded the video card for $399 that graphically is roughly ~33% more powerful.

If you took that same PC now, but say you didn't upgrade in 2012, but did now, you could get a GTX 760 for $239.99, which is still superior to a PS4.

That's why the consoles are weaker. Businesses couldn't trust to put out a stronger console because all the aspects revolving around their target market are completely horrible and they couldn't risk it. Unemployed people can't pay $800 for a console. Thanks to printing money for fraud resulting in dollar and other currency devaluation, that's what a console would need to cost in order to be where we expected them to be power wise.

The power is there tha... #15
