Well, he does listen and even answers to consumers. The author should be able to ask himself and see it all at Phil's twitter.

Phil listens, that's what saving Xbox right now:)

Army_of_Darkness2504d ago

I would start listening too if I had no choice ;-)

Regardless does it matter? They have continually made xbox one better and better based on consumer feedback.

What matters is games, 90% of the gamers just care about the product on store shelves, if its worth the price point they will buy it. Also lots of my friends and associates at work wanted an X1 from the start,outside of game forums I never hear the fanboy stuff, they are just in no rush to run out an buy a next gen console while their 360 or ps3 still fills their gaming needs. I think that's smart. So it's a long gen, 6-7 months in doesn't speak to where these consoles will be in 1, 2, 3 years and so on.

I think to a degree yes, but not nearly as much as the loyalists think. After all, he was quoted not too long ago saying he had no plans to drop the Kinect as it was part of the Xbox, and then drops it for a new bundle right after their sales plummeted. So listening to people's wallets is also a big part of it.

I'm starting to think people give you disagrees out of habit now.

If you read the piece you might find out what the author's opinion is. The writers don't write the headers, the editor does.

CerebralAssassin2504d ago

The header sets the tone to any article. The header also should related to the piece. If it doesnt then its not worth reading in the first place.

4Sh0w2504d ago

Thats a bad idea for journalism. Writers should write the headline of their own news, editors job is to review it, make suggestions, sometimes fix errors and then give the green light to post.

Phil is listening to the consumer but its really about the games, deliver the games and real gamers will follow.

GoogleYourMama2504d ago

Read the article. Clearly I know that he is listening to the consumer and this article is more about the postive changes that have been made and what has been done right around the corner from E3 and announced BEFORE E3. I See what you did there though, a champion comment based from the headline of this article only. Showing you didn't actually read it. *claps*

corvusmd2504d ago

He basically says, yes, that Phil is listening to consumers...but also is waiting to see what happens.

PridedLlama2504d ago

Phil is doing a great job, xbox will knock it out the park this E3. Now all they need to do is get rid of Yusuf Mehdi, that bloke really makes my skin crawl and he seems about as gamer focused as Mattrick did

MasterCornholio2504d ago

Was Yusuf the guy who called people stupid for buying a PS3?

Clown_Syndr0me2504d ago

Ofcourse he is. MS is a business, and what better way to success than listening to your customers?

All businesses do it, not just gaming companies and at the end of the day it all boils down to one thing - profit.

TheFallenAngel2504d ago

They're definitely listening but they are forced to change, they don't want to lose.
