Why the Xbox One is already a miserable failure

  1. Could Microsoft have absolutely destroyed their product anymore than the Xbox One? Not even to mention the pathetic name, people seem to forget the fact that the reveal and the specs spell absolute destruction. Now before I get the term "Sony fanboy" shoved up my ass, let me tell you something. I own an Xbox 360, a PS3, and a Wii, and I have to admit that the Xbox 360 was worth the price tag. But where do I start on this absolute piece of shit. First of all, the idea of having to pay a price to use used games is an idea that should have went down the shitter when it first came up. But everyone knows the greed of the modern day company, and I should have expected that. And once again, the idea of the always online console was shut down by Microsoft. But what they didn't say is that the system requires an Internet connection to work, and you can go into offline mode from there. Who in the flying fuck had that idea? Another thing, the Kinect always has to be hooked up to the system in order to work. I swear, it gets worse and worse. I hope to god that Sony pulls their shit together after seeing this and doesn't make the same mistake.

  2. 1. You're not a Sony fanboy. Good post.
    2. Sony will have the same restrictions on the PS4. Bank on that, that's what business does. They'll see it as "The customers won't have a third option! Nintendo's barely competition and PC gaming is so much different anyway. The customers are caught, hook line and sinker, and they're going to buy our stuff no matter what we do! Haha!"
    3. If it's like the PS3 and 360, either you go towards the better game selection and free online of the PS4 or take the better game quality and better online of the XB1. They'll have their small differences and expect you to buy their system over the other based on those.

    Seems a lot wiser for Sony to be not completely retarded, but that's not how business works
     
  3. Sony is likely to have things people will not agree with just like Xbox. Saying Xbox One is "already" a failure without even knowing much about Playstation4 is a shot in the dark. We shall all see what system is better when E3 rolls around. (I think its called E3? I really don't know... I am not that into TV so I have no idea... haha... no cable. #BRYANDANIELSONFTW!)
     
  4. I refuse to think a console sucks probably six months before it's even released.
     
  5. I don't hate the idea of it, just nothing about it makes me wanna go and spend hundreds of pounds buying it. But with both Fifa 14 and GTA 5 coming out on the 360 I have absolutely no reason to get it any time soon anyway.
     
  6. VG24/7 Up to £35 to unlock a game you buy second hand + whatever you pay for it in store.
