Xbox Founder Believes Xbox One Won’t Catch Up To PS4

| May 4, 2015

Xbox Founder Believes Xbox One Won't Catch Up To PS4 News PlayStation Xbox  Xbox One PlayStation 4

The latest console generation may have only begun a year and a half ago, but a lot of pundits are already calling the generation in favor of Sony’s PS4. The Xbox One fought back last fall with a price drop and a strong holiday roster of games, but the PS4 has still managed to outpace the Xbox One by a good margin. Things could turn around at almost anytime in this race, but one of the founders of the original Xbox believes that the race is already over more than likely.

Ed Fries led the team behind the creation of the original Xbox, but according to the Puget Sound Business Journal, he believes that “it’s PS4 by a nose.” Fries himself hasn’t been with the company since 2004, but he obviously knows the industry well having helped to bring us Microsoft’s very first console.

“The two sides say nice things about each other; they compliment each other’s cool games. It looks to me like most of the excitement is kind of over in the console war for this generation. It looks like Microsoft is gaining a little traction back, but PS4 got a really early lead that will be hard for Microsoft to catch.”

Fries does think that Microsoft may have one chance to close the gap further or even take the lead with the inception of virtual and augmented reality devices, as both Sony and Microsoft are taking different approaches to this new popular trend. It is impossible to predict how much impact those will have at this point on the Xbox One and PS4 though. Regardless, Fries believes that competition is always good for the industry, regardless of who is in first place.

“And I think it’s good. … I think it keeps prices lower and competition is a good thing.”

What do you think about the current console race? Will a strong holiday lineup again in 2015 by Microsoft be able to narrow the gap against a Sony lineup that has a lot of questions right now? Or has PS4 jumped out too far in front for Microsoft to catch up at this point? Let us know what you think in the comments below.

    PS4 been won the console wars.

    • Fozymandias

      That was a pretty easy victory. Honestly I think Microsoft ruined their own launch by announcing just how awful the X1 and it’s capabilities were then backtracking when the negative feedback overwhelmed them. Congrats to Sony for sticking to the only thing we gamers care about…GAMES!

      • $125882522

        Right on.

      • corwin brown

        Sony just got lucky they came out second, They were headed down the same path as Microsoft. They saw the backlash Microsoft was getting and changed their system. I can’t even access my Videos I purchased on the PlayStation Network without an Internet connection. This proves Sony just said Oh’Oh look at the crap Microsoft is going through and changed their console.

        They just got lucky they came out second!

        • Common Sense

          Yeah Dude Sony is lucky!

    • Both are done considering all the financial trouble sony has been facing lately, so you guys can say good bye to the console industry period and welcome cloud gaming which could probably just reduce gaming to what really rules the world, hand held phone crap! Nintendo is already ahead of the game with that so…console gaming in the future? Probably not my friends and I have had them since Atari. R.I.P

      • $125882522

        You say that as if you’re the only one who has been gaming since the Atari days lol. And as far as the future, we’ll see when it gets here.

        • I am the only one who’s been gaming since the atari days and you know what, it feels damn good ;)

          • $125882522

            Whatever helps you sleep at night lol.

          • Exactly! :)

          • corwin brown

            Enter reality please.

          • I am in Reality you don’t know what your talking about no face! I RULE GAMING!

  • A nose? He must be Pinocchio then!

  • Stevue

    Good…that means better services, exclusive investments, discounts etc for me on xbox one. 2nd place is 1st place for the gamer ! The sales, free to play games media options, subscriptions services and exclusive games are already better on xbox one.

    • Country Boy Lucifer

      2nd place is 1st place for the gamer? Lol

    • Guest

      ha ha ha. Thanks for the laugh. :)

  • Dev6bbcd

    Hmmm-Microsofts impressive 2015 unification of xbox one, pc and mobile platforms with windows 10 means that their install base is about 100 billion. Looks to me that Microsot takes 1st place by a a bit more than a nose.

    • Guest

      For me, unification of Xbox One and PC also makes the XB1 irrelevant. Why buy an XB1 if its exclusives end up on PC?

      • brusselsproty

        Have you actually read how the whole thing is going to work, stupid fanboys just read bits they want.

        That means you ,Derp, or “I’m right and your wrong”
        How come no upvote bot anymore ?

        • Guest

          What are you talking about? are you drunk? The XB1 has 3 AAA exclusive since launch. Another 2 this year. Out of these 5, 2 are Forza and 2 are Halo games.
          Sunset Overdrive might end up on PC too.

          The XB1 keeps losing exclusives to the PC, DR3, Ryse. Fable is also coming on PC. MS are going to talk about windows 10 and hololens games at E3. That will take time away from XB1. They already said they have major 1st party studios working on Hololens.
          For me it just looks like MS have new priority and the XB1 isn’t at the top right now.

          • Ridney

            They arent losing anything..they own the pc space as well so they are giving them games. With pc and mobile they own the gaming market. You petty little ps4 fanboys are funny in an idiotic sort of way.

          • Guest

            LOL Nice of you to get personal just because I’m criticising your beloved company. :)

            Only company fanboys talk in terms of COMPANY exclusive and this company owns this so they are still making money.
            I don’t give a fuck about MS, Sony and if they make money or not. I’m a gamer, I care about consoles and game.

            I already own a PC so if MS exclusives come on PC I just don’t see the need to buy an XB1.
            MS try to delay or hide the fact that a game is coming on PC or even lie about exclusives because they know that if they give the choice by communicating on it then many people wouldn’t buy their console. They are openly doing that to fool gamers.

          • Ridney

            Its the entertainment that MS brings to me that i care about. Its not just games…games 24-7 gets boring. With the devs that will be coming to a massive user base under windows 10, xbox one gives me the most potential for the newest and best exclusives games, apps, hololense…all of it.

          • Guest

            Yeah, the 100 billion user base. ha ha ha

          • sallu

            Its one hell of a lot bigger than ps4s.

          • Guest101

            So thats the new excuse for you fanboys? Microsoft lied about exclusives? Damn desperate much.

          • Guest

            Ah but they did lie. They had a advert saying Ori was exclusive to XB1. There was also Aaron Greenberg with this “#BOOM #XboxOne #Exclusive Rise of the Tomb Raider”.
            Or Larry Hryb with
            “Kojima on stage now to open the show and announce that the next Metal Gear Solid V is exclusive to #XboxOne”
            ha ha ha

          • Guest101

            LOL! I knew you people where desperate to down play the Xbox One/Microsoft but not this desperate.

          • Guest101

            “Ori” Unless a PC is a console, then Ori is exclusive to one >console< and thats the Xbox One
            "ROTTR" same applies as with Ori.

            "MGSV" please show me proof.

          • Guest

            lol you guys are so desperate you try to reinvent the meaning of words.
            Exclusives means exclusive to ONE SYSTEM. Go check out the meaning.
            And btw since when the Xbox 360 is not a console? -_-
            Both Rise of tomb raider and Ori are also on 360.
            Can’t you think before posting rubbish, little xbot?

            And sure for the proof.

          • Guest101

            Its a console exclusive, do you even know what that means? Ori hasn’t even launched on 360 so its still Xbox One console exclusive but like I said its an Xbox console exclusive just like Street Fighter, No Mans Sky, PlanetSide 2 are console exclusives on PS4. My, you Sony Pony Dick Riders are the morons of the planet.
            Hey at least Larry apologize for that error (he meant exclusive DLC, just searched it up)
            Cant say the same for Sony who have made many claims of the graphics on some of their games when its not true and they don’t say anything about it (WatchDogs and Killzone come into mind)

          • Guest

            ” but like I said its an Xbox console exclusive just like Street Fighter, No Mans Sky, PlanetSide 2 are console exclusives on PS4. ”
            LOL What is you or was it that lunatic “Ridney”? ha ha ha
            Once again you prove how dumb you are. It must be difficult to keep up wit so much lies and wit so many different user tags and user account.ha ha ha
            AH little xbot, you’re such an idiot. :)

            Just because you are s big liar, you got to stop making excuses to these people when they lie to us gamers. They clearly said “XBOX ONE exclusive”. Not console exclusive, so still a lie.

            Also Larry Hryb still lied. You laughed and called me desperate and now I proved to you that they actually lied. You must be feeling a bit foolish at this moment. :)

            When will you grow up, little xbot. :)

          • RKO!

            Wow you sure proved him wrong by just insulting him./s

          • Guest

            Creating multiple accounts, impersonating other members, lying and using different personality just to try and who that many people agree with his opinions is for me a stupid way of debating. He has insulted me and other people in the past so you know what he got what was coming to him.

            I’ve proved him wrong with proof and proper arguments not because I said he was an idiot. I did call him an idiot because he trolls, lies, uses mutiple accounts and gets caught doing it.

            Now “Gamer”, do you support trolls, people who use multiple accounts, impersonate other members and lie just because they happen to support the console you like?

          • RKO!

            “Support trolls, people who use multiple accounts, impersonate other members and lie because they happen to support the conssole you like”

            Are you talking about yourself? You are no different than him or any of the above things you mentioned. I have come many times to read articles in this cite and the comments are always full of people like you. Stop acting like you are non of the things you mentioned because you are.

            Wouldnt surprise me if you are that exact same guest101.

            Well whatever non of this is my problem. I will leave you to do all of the above you mentioned.

          • Guest

            lol no Guest101 is also him. I did have one Disqus account long back but I stopped using it when some people got to my facebook and insulted my friends there.

            And no, I never used multiple accounts, I never impersonated and lied. You really should stop accusing me without any proof.

            That guy, brusselsproty called me stupid because I gave my opinion. Ridney, Guest101 called me idiotic, desperate. He also called other members idiotic fanboy yet you defend him because I called his bullshit, I proved that I was right and I called his stupid.

            That just shows what an hypocrite you are. If you’re not happy with the points that I am making or arguments on GAMING then come and let me know instead of throwing accusation. Seems to me that you are attacking me just because you don’t like my opinions and the facts that I bring… :)

          • RKO!

            You keep telling yourself that if it helps you sleep at night. “the facts that I bring” lol good one

          • Guest

            Looks like you’re just a typical xbot. Making accusation with ZERO proof. Why don’t you prove that some of my statement or facts are wrong? Why?

            That’s because you know you won’t be able to do it. You call yourself “Gamer” but you didn’t make a single gaming argument. Making accusations with ZERO proof seems to be your thing.

            Like I said I just think you’re upset/angry/bitter about the points(gaming) I make that goes against the company that you love and since you can’t debate the points you make baseless accusations without any proof… Typical :)

          • RKO!

            Like I said keep telling yourself or keep thinking to yourself that everything you are saying is correct if it helps you sleep at night. With proof comes links, actual physical evidence not just words which is what you are doing. “Oh Microsoft lied, they said Ori was Xbox One exclusive when it will be on PC wa wa wa” That’s your evidence and all I can do with that is laugh at you.

          • Guest

            Ooh So you want proof? Why didn’t you ask me in the first place?
            Here, a video by your beloved MS:
            /watch?v=XoFVrmb7jQk on youtube (Apparently I can’t post video links here)

            0:28 “FABLE legends ONLY ON XBOX ONE”
            0:41 “Ori and the blind forest ONLY ON XBOX ONE” -> lie

            Now, that’s my evidence. :)

            For me, your comment just about confirms that you were bitter/upset when I said something negative about your beloved MS.
            If you had doubt you should have just asked like how I posted Larry Hryb’s lie when that guy asked. :)

            You have talked twice now of getting sleep at night, I hope you don’t lose your sleep over negative comments against multinational corporation like MS. I criticise MS because of their strategies. I find some of their strategies are anti-gaming. Investing money on deals to delay a game on other platform or misleading people into thinking that multiplatforms are exclusives aren’t strategy I’m fine with.

            I would prefer if they invest in making their true exclusive. I want them to SPEND money on gaming. I want them to make games that will make me want to buy the console.
            I trashed the PS3 back when it came out and I believed they improved it for gamers when they launched the PS4 because of all the negativity they got. I hope the same thing happens with MS.

            There. I don’t think there is a need to get upset/angry/bitter(or lose sleep) about anything here. :)

          • RKO!

            LOL You know that video you send me… why don’t you watch it and read what it says at 1:35 at the bottom. Cant wait to see how you spin it. Well either way I have nothing further to say, your vendetta against Xbox/Microsoft has made you into a fool, into a desperate fool. This will be the last time we talk whatever you say next I will just laugh it up like I have from the beginning.

            p.s. Thanks for the video btw many great games I cant wait to play on my Xbox One and surely on my PS4 as well. Keep fighting “the good fight” you are doing a “great job at it”.

          • Guest

            So your argument is the fine prints saying “Now $349” and “Retail prices may vary. Games and console sold seperately.”
            So that justifies the lies!? ha ha ha

            “Well either way I have nothing further to say, your vendetta against Xbox/Microsoft has made you into a fool, into a desperate fool. This will be the last time we talk whatever you say next I will just laugh it up like I have from the beginning.”
            Ah I knew that would happen. You are a typical stupid xbot pretending to be a gamer.You call yourself a gamer yet you made zero valid gaming argument. (I’ve seen a lot of xbot pretending to own a PS4, I wonder if its also your case). I tried to have a serious discussion with you but it’s not possible to have one with an hypocrite stupid fanboy who only accuse without proof and insult just because I happen to criticise his beloved company. And at the end you runaway because you know you’ll always get trashed if you try to argue about gaming. :)

            Keep the good fight, fanboy. You are doing a “great” job defending the multinational corporation thats lying to gamers. :)

          • Bystander

            He means this part way at the end.

            No one is always going to agree with what you say, so don’t act surprise if people “attack” you or just give their own opinion on the matter. If anyone is making any accusations is you by saying that Microsoft is lying when that simply is not a fact but just you hating on a company you don’t like. If what you say we’re true then Microsoft would get sued like Sony has been, but that’s not the case. You have no argument all you have is hate.

          • Guest

            “If anyone is making any accusations is you by saying that Microsoft is lying when that simply is not a fact ”
            lol “Bystander” did you read the whole conversation?

            I have already posted links and proofs.
            1) Aaron Greenberg with this “#BOOM #XboxOne #Exclusive Rise of the Tomb Raider”.
            2) Larry Hryb with “Kojima on stage now to open the show and announce that the next Metal Gear Solid V is exclusive to #XboxOne”
            3) The youtube video /watch?v=XoFVrmb7jQk
            0:28 “FABLE legends ONLY ON XBOX ONE”
            0:41 “Ori and the blind forest ONLY ON XBOX ONE” -> lie

            Of course there are other examples. Just look at what they did with Ryse.
            They revealed this at E3 2010 as a game coming exclusively on the X360. (Youtube video /watch?v=4PSEo3_fSGM 3:10)
            (1) help sell the 360.

            E3 2011, they are telling fans that this will be a X360 exclusive and Kinect title. (youtube video watch?v=dm-_hDRD2mk)
            (2) help sell kinect v1 and the 360.

            In 2013, this suddenly becomes a Xbox One exclusive. When people asked whether there will be a PC port down the line the answer was “If you want to play Ryse: Son of Rome, you need to purchase the game and an Xbox One.” (Google “ryse-son-of-rome-wont-have-demo-or-pc-port” site: segmentnext)
            (3) help sell the xbox one

            It must be frustrating for a person who had a PC and bought a X360/Kinect1/XB1 to play this game.

            I don’t hate MS, just some of their gaming policies. The problem with you guys is that you love a company so much that you’ll defend them no matter what. Even anti-gaming policies. You guys keep defending them even with proof.

            And you take it personally and get upset when someone criticise gaming policies and lies by the company you loves.

          • Bystander

            My god you are trying way to hard, you have no case, all you are doing is connecting things, spinning things to make your argument valid. You are making a fool out of yourself. You think we are taking this personally? Why don’t you look in a mirror.

            1. Tomb Raider IS an Exclusive to the Xbox console. Doesn’t matter if its timed IT STILL is an exclusive until they announce that it will come to another platform.

            2. “Kojima on stage now to open the show and announce that the next Metal Gear Solid V is exclusive to #XboxOne” Its true he said that, but then he apologized for his error. You are just trying to spin it into something else.

            3. “Xbox One Best Games 2015” That’s an Xbox One marketing video, man you should learn things before opening your mouth. Those games are being marketed for the Xbox One >>>>console<<<<. Why would Microsoft want to market something that's not theirs. Not only that but they are the ones publishing said games and have a right to market them on their console.
            4. About Ryse. Microsoft decided to make the game for Xbox One and not Xbox 360 and???? Games can be announced for a certain platform, date and what not but they can still be "subject to change".
            You are just making small things into a big things.
            You ask me if I read? Seems you didn't. The pic I posted states something very interesting and you should get acquainted with because its something that its always being used.

          • Guest

            Looks like you’re going in circles here I’ve already replied to most of these.
            Anyway here goes:
            1) Can’t you read it says “#XboxOne #Exclusive” It is not exclusive to Xbox one.
            It is coming on XB1 and X360 FALL of 2015 but NOT XBOX exclusive. That is it, end of the story.

            2) You can say whatever you want it. He still lied.

            3) You can say whatever and try to justify anyway you want but it is still a lie. Ori, and Fable legends are NOT “ONLY ON XBOX ONE”. And that is a fact.

            4) Again you can say whatever you like but the fact remains that Ryse wasn’t on 360, wasn’t a kinect game and ended on PC. These are facts.

            They make these statements to get gamers excited and buy their hardware. All gamers should call ALL companies doing this. Ofc fanboys like you will accept being lied to and that a company tries to trick you because for you the company is more important than gamers and gaming. :)

            Really? what’s so interesting about the picture you posted?

          • Bystander

            Say whatever you want kid, if it helps you feel better about yourself then so be it. All I will say is good luck taking this supposed lies you think Microsoft did to court.
            p.s. Take a marketing class or something, maybe then you will stop lying to yourself.

          • Guest

            You have the same way of posting style as that idiot “Gamer”. Are you “Gamer”? ha ha
            ofc you must be little xbox and also Guest101 who posted few minutes after you.

            It’s funny because even tough I replied to so many different tag names and Disqus accounts, it just feels like I talked to one and the same idiot.
            Ah, little xbot when will you learn. ha ha ha :)

          • Bystander

            Oh my, is that tin foil hat preventing air from going into your brain? Sorry but there are many people in this world and not all of them will agree with your fantasy’s. Since you are so sure of yourself and that Microsoft lied it wont be hard to make this facts into a headline or take it to court. :)
            Come on pretentious Guest spread the word, show the world the lies done by Microsoft. :)
            I will be waiting for the next issue titled “Microsoft lied and Guest was right”

          • Guest

            lol there are many people in the world but I only know one xbot who uses so many accounts/usertags and desperately lies this much.
            You happen to come up here and post just like the guy who just said he won’t post again…
            And doing it 4 days after I make my original post. You still make the same kind of posts, same type of insults and refusing to accept obvious proofs. And at the end since you lose your argument and know you can’t win you(and every other accounts your using her) resort to typical childish insults…

            Like I said, keep the good fight, fanboy. You are doing a “great” job defending the multinational corporation thats lying to gamers.
            Oh little xbot, when will you grow up… :)

          • Bystander

            Cool story…now where is that news of Microsoft being sued because of this lies you talk about? or the new issue titled “Microsoft Lied and Guest was right”? This should be hard for someone who is acting all pretentious over the internet.

          • Bystander

            “This shouldn’t be hard for someone who is acting all pretentious over the internet.”

          • Guest

            Little xbox’s defintion of a lie: A lie is when you get sued. ha ha ha

            You’re stupidty makes me laugh. 100 billion MS users ha ha
            Ive counted. It looks like you used around 10 different usertag/disqus account in this topic alone and you didn’t make one valid point.

            Keep trying little xbot, you may get there one day. :)

          • PSDrone

            You think Microsoft lied? Then you are looking the wrong way child.
            Sony lies:
            1. Killzone Shadow Fall Resolution (gets a lawsuit)
            2. Watch Dogs Resolution and fps
            3. PS Vita misleading ads (gets a lawsuit)
            and many more.
            Kid, get off your high horse and get over yourself, companies lie all the time to some degree, but your facts/proof are wrong.

          • Guest

            lol little xbot. That’s so typical of you. To justify the lies of one company you talk about another company.

            Whatever you said doesn’t change the fact that MS lied to gamers. You got to learn to accept it and move on. :)

          • Guest101

            “To justify the lies of one company you talk about another company.” Coming from a Sony Pony Dick Rider hypocrite like yourself? That’s rich.

          • Guest

            AAAANND back to insults. You xbots are so predictable. After losing a debate you just have to start insults one more time.

            Ori is on ps4 not jus xbone

          • Guest101

            Nope try again. Ori is no on PS4.

          • Schroeder

            False. If you had read Phil Spencer’s comments made about two weeks ago, you’d know MSFT is running hard on first party games at E3, not HoloLens and Win10. They’ll mention those things, but that’s it. There’s plenty of chances to talk more about those technologies later, especially HL, which is still in prototype stage for now.

          • Guest

            hmm. What exactly is false?

            They said they’ll talk more of hololens at E3.
            “Be inspired at E3.
            Holographic computing promises whole new ways for us to create, collaborate, work, and play. We look forward to showing and telling you more at E3, the world’s premier trade show for computer and video games and related products.”
            https://www.microsoft.com/microsoft-hololens/en-us/developers

            He also said they’ll talk about some of both (PC and Xbox) at E3.
            http://www.twinfinite.net/2015/04/28/microsoft-intends-to-shake-things-up-at-e3-this-year/

            I know they’ll talk about first party. I’m expecting more halo 5 talk, Gears reveal, reveal of the new rare game. But how many of the first party games are actually hololens?
            This is what Spencer said “Our first-party studios are active today building game entertainment for HoloLens, and you’re going to see more of that throughout the year.”
            http://www.digitalspy.co.uk/gaming/news/a633228/microsoft-first-party-studios-are-working-on-hololens-games-gdc-2015.html#~pbJF0XBfHMKLDp

            So really I don’t know what is false in what I said. :)

          • Schroeder

            Spencer pushed 1st party games for the conference. They’ll show you HoloLens, but it won’t be the focus of the trade show and may or may not even make a main-stage presentation appearance given they have several days of the event to show it off in-person. That’s still TBD. They’ve got LOTS of 1st party games to show off: Halo 5, Fable Legends, Gears of War, Crackdown, Scalebound (MAYBE), Tomb Raider, Forza 6, Quantum Break, new unannounced titles (multiple have been teased for possible reveal @ E3). Indie titles like Below could still get stage time as well. Then there’s 3rd party games that could find stage time, although not as much as previous E3 shows. That doesn’t factor into much time for things like HoloLens, Windows 10, DX12, etc.
            I say FALSE because your initial reply/post insinuated that Xbox was being thrown on the back-burner, when it’s Microsoft’s biggest hardware seller. You also said MS is losing exclusives to the PC, but only some games are cross-platform and big exclusives like Halo 5 and Quantum Break are not cross-platform. On top of that, how can these be LOST to PC platforms when a majority of gamers have migrated to consoles and don’t have gaming PCs? I have a gaming PC yet I hardly use it for gaming because the social pool isn’t as strong as it once was. Your reasons don’t add up and aren’t reflecting anything Microsoft has talked about up to this point about its plans at E3.

          • Guest

            You do know that Rise of tomb raider and Scalebound are neither 1st nor 2nd party games, right?

            Anyway, the thing is we don’t actually know how it is going to go. All we have are various statements from MS executives. And all I did is present them here so you cannot say it is false.

            “I say FALSE because your initial reply/post insinuated that Xbox was being thrown on the back-burner,”
            All I did is gave my opinion or made a prediction of what is going to happen. My exact words were “For me it just looks like MS have new priority and the XB1 isn’t at the top right now.”
            That is my opinion and there is no way you can say it is false since you cannot prove to me that it is. I think MS makes most of its money with Windows so it would be logical to think that Windows 10 should be their priority at the moment. They have invested massively on hololens. It isn’t crazy to think that MS has more priority on this rather then on a product that was released 2 years back and that is getting outsold by it’s rival all over the world.

            No, Halo 5 and Quantum Break are not cross-platform. (Even though Quantum break may also come on PC after some time like Alan Wake).
            But we are talking of this.

            Dec 2015: –

            From launch till the end of the year there are just 5 AAA exclusive. Out of which 2 Forza, 2 Halo(one was a collection of old games) and Sunset overdrive (that could still land on another platform). You might find this brilliant but me personally, I don’t find it great. Especially when I compare it towhat the WiiU and PS4 have.

            “On top of that, how can these be LOST to PC platforms when a majority of gamers have migrated to consoles and don’t have gaming PCs”
            Well, the fact remains that games like Deadrising 3 aren’t XB1 exclusives. I don’t need to buy an XB1 to play the it. I don’t know if it’s a fact that majority of gamers don’t have a mid range PC, I’m I certainly feel that there are more gamers that owns a mid range PC(or higher) than there are XB1 owners around the world. So yeah, it’s quite irrelevant. The fact remains they are not XB1 exclusives whether you like it or not.

          • Schroeder

            Scalebound is a property owned by Microsoft and is being developed by Microsoft. That is a perfect example of first party. Rise of the Tomb Raider has been acquired by Microsoft as a launch exclusive (we’re talking consoles here) and it’s been said that it could potentially never come to PS4 or, at the very least, be delayed by a year or so. Until either of those games release on competing consoles, they remain exclusive. Also, leaving out games like Forza Horizon 2, and Titanfall is foolish since they’re also “AAA” games. You have no definition for AAA and really neither does anyone else, but if we’re talking successful high-selling titles, both of those fit in and were also exclusive to the Xbox One (with a PC version of Titanfall being available).
            Market research data shows that PCs are not being purchased as often and the once-popular PC gamer has been in decline for the last decade. Steam keeps the PC gaming community strong, but it’s no longer a service delivering a product on the most popular platform. No, there aren’t more XB1 consoles than PC gaming people in the world (assumed), but there are more Xbox gamers than PC gamers in the world. There are more PS3/PS4 gamers than PC gamers in the world. Thus, there are more CONSOLE gamers in the world. In the place you quoted me, I said “migrated to consoles”, that includes every game console available.

            And your opinion can be your own, but you didn’t present it as a prediction but a statement of fact: “MS are going to talk about windows 10 and hololens games at E3. That will take time away from XB1” STATEMENT not opinion. “They already said they have major 1st party studios working on Hololens. For me it just looks like MS have new priority and the XB1 isn’t at the top right now”. The last part can be seen as more of an opinion, but given the context in which you delivered your paragraph as a whole, anyone will associate your meaning as intended to be iron-clad. If that’s not what you meant, be more clear – the language is English and it’s good to be at least fluent enough with it to keep others from being confused.

          • Guest

            Sorry what!? The last time I checked it was PlatinumGames who were developing Scalebound. And PlatinumGames is a third party studio that made games The Legend of Korra or Bayonetta and you can say whatever you want Rise of the Tomb Raider is not a first party game. Do you even know the meaning of first party game? -_-

            “leaving out games like Forza Horizon 2, and Titanfall is foolish since they’re also “AAA” games. You have no definition for AAA and really neither does anyone else, but if we’re talking successful high-selling titles, both of those fit in and were also exclusive to the Xbox One (with a PC version of Titanfall being available).”
            Oh yeah, Titanfall and Forza Horizon 2 are AAA games, they are just not XB1 exclusives. Seems like you don’t know the meaning of an exclusive game. -_-

            I find it interesting to see the number of MS fans that doesn’t know the meaning of the words exclusive or exclusivity.

            “No, there aren’t more XB1 consoles than PC gaming people in the world (assumed), but there are more Xbox gamers than PC gamers in the world. There are more PS3/PS4 gamers than PC gamers in the world. Thus, there are more CONSOLE gamers in the world.”
            Really? Do you have a link for it? I’m curious to read more this.

            “And your opinion can be your own, but you didn’t present it as a prediction but a statement of fact: “MS are going to talk about windows 10 and hololens games at E3. That will take time away from XB1″ STATEMENT not opinion.”
            What? I showed you the linked to MS site saying they will be talking of Hololens at E3. Phil Spencer said they will be talking of Windows games at E3. I didn’t invent that stuff, it came from MS. Now it’s logic that if you are going to talk of PC games and Hololens then there will be less time on XB. Even if they talk only 0.1% of the time on those things it is still time taken away from time they would have spent on XB.

            “”They already said they have major 1st party studios working on Hololens. For me it just looks like MS have new priority and the XB1 isn’t at the top right now”. The last part can be seen as more of an opinion, but given the context in which you delivered your paragraph as a whole, anyone will associate your meaning as intended to be iron-clad. If that’s not what you meant, be more clear – the language is English and it’s good to be at least fluent enough with it to keep others from being confused.”
            lol It was quite clear really. I’ve started the sentence by “For me” meaning IN MY OPINION. Maybe I should have started with “IN MY OPINION” or “ACCORDING TO ME” so you could see it better. :) But you know what? It’s not my problem if you’re having troubles to understand something.
            If you don’t understand the meaning of first party games, exclusive games or “For me” you could just ask me, I’ll be happy help you. :)

          • Schroeder

            I’ve used the phrase console exclusive multiple times, and consoles aren’t in competition with PCs for sales, so for those of us who take part in this conversation regularly, “exclusive” refers to console exclusive more than anything. Also, I made an improper edit and didn’t fix my previous statement. PhantomGames is developing Scalebound, but it’s Microsoft’s property and is being co-developed by Microsoft Game Studios. I failed to mention the return of Phantom Dust, which was pulled from its original developer to be developed directly by MGS but it behind schedule as a result of the move.
            Look at game sales for consoles vs. PC and you’ll also see how consoles are leading the charge for game sales. There are over 170 million PS3 & X360 consoles in the world. Add in Wii sales and there’s over 270 million of those consoles in the world that have some games, like Call of Duty, which sells tens of millions of titles. That doesn’t include Wii U, X1 and PS4 sales or any other modern mobile/home console (Vita, DS, etc.). PC game REVENUES have spiked recently, but it’s been shown that is a product of the FTP sales system getting cheaper-to-develop games (LoL, DOTA 2) to drastically outsell what usually would be a $40-$60 price tag. But I’m not arguing total profits or revenues, but unit sales (because that’s the barometer for the bigger pool of games). The only way PC unit sales and game sales surpass console game sales will be through the marketing of console-like platforms, which is the future of consoles anyways. But until Sony, Microsoft and Nintendo drop exclusive console operating systems and hardware, that’s still well in the future.

            “I’ve used the phrase console exclusive multiple times, and consoles aren’t in competition with PCs for sales, so for those of us who take part in this conversation regularly, “exclusive” refers to console exclusive more than anything.”
            You can use whatever phrase you want but you cannot change the meaning of a word just so that you can add few “exclusives” to the console you love. I was talking and listed XB1 AAA exclusives.
            I’m not talking in terms of company or developers. I’m talking as a consumer or a gamer. Someone who owns a mid-range PC doesn’t need to buy an XB1 to play Deadrising 3 but he needs to get a PS4 to play Infamous Second Son.

            “PhantomGames is developing Scalebound, but it’s Microsoft’s property and is being co-developed by Microsoft Game Studios.”
            Sorry What? PhantomGames?
            Oh so it is Microsoft’s property and is co-developed by Microsoft Game Studios?
            Do you have a link to this or are you making this up?

            “Phantom Dust, which was pulled from its original developer to be developed directly by MGS”
            What? So Microsoft Game Studio is developing the Phantom Dust remake!? I suppose you can post me a link about this too, I’m really interested in knowing more about Microsoft developing the game.

            lol your orginial statement was this:
            “there are more Xbox gamers than PC gamers in the world.”
            and then you said “There are more PS3/PS4 gamers than PC gamers in the world.”
            And I wanted was a link or proofs that those statement were true? But all you did is add up the number of PS3/360 and even wii sold. And talked about games like COD that are heavily market to console people. -_-

            You’re talking about unit sales but that doesn’t take into account gamers that own multiple systems. I have/had a PC, a PS4, a PS3, a Wii U, a Vita, a 360, a dsi… By your logic I count for 1 PC gamer and 7 console gamer. Another flaw in your reasoning is the number you bring up doesn’t account for all countries around the world and we cannot take into account the total number of PC sold.

            You are not taking into account the number of active steam users (125m recently announced). Considering that there were around 17m gold subscriber for 360 and the XB1 sold around 7m at that time. The difference seems massive to me.

            You may think that PC is totally detached from console, but I don’t think thats true. Why do you think a company like MS use the “exclusive to XB1” tagline, delays PC versions and don’t tell people about it? Why do you think MS heavily marketed Titanfall as a XB1 game and didn’t market the PC version. Why do you think MS’s first party games like Forza and Halo don’t come on PC?

            You got to think it this way. You will buy Farcry 4 on XB1 because I already own a XB1. You won’t buy a PS4 because of FarCry 4 if you already own another system (XB1) on which you can play the game.
            This is the same thing for gamers that owns a mid-range PC. Why would I buy a XB1 for Deadrising 3 if I can play it on my PC?

            Your main argument seems to be that since there are fewer gamers(compared to XB1 owners) that owns and use a mid-range PC(that still remains to be proved), then games coming out on XB1/PC are exclusives to XB1.
            So by that logic, we can also say that since there are fewer gamers(compared to PS4 owners) that owns and use a XB1, then games coming out on XB1/PS4 are exclusives to PS4.
            Sorry it doesn’t work that way. The meaning of a word cannot be changed just to help a certain company.

          • TheManWithABigToe

            The PC market is Microsoft’s market so why not later on put their exclusives on it.

          • Country Boy Lucifer

            Its a common misconception that the PC market is Microsoft’s market.

            Its nothing like consoles where

            Yes the os could be ms but the hardware could be Sony, AMD, etc etc all combined.

            When a consumer buys a console its a fixed unit and you won’t get a Sony game appearing on an x1.

            PC market is open, if Sony wanted to they could release it on PC but it has more value as a true exclusive.

            Ms don’t have that luxury as 2nd and 3rd party developers want to make more money so they have to go to PC

          • TheManWithABigToe

            You do realize that 2nd and 3rd party developers that work on the PS4 do the same thing, right?

          • Country Boy Lucifer

            Errr to a degree but not as many.

            Bloodbourne for example is 3rd party developed

          • TheManWithABigToe

            But they do, I thought you said that Bloodborne was 2nd party?

          • Country Boy Lucifer

            From is 3rd party developer. Sony Japan helped with the development though.

            The only AAA exclusive ps4 has that’s heading to PC is street fighter.

            Xbox has ryse, titanfall, dead rising, etc..

            Indies will usually head to PC, rgsts the nature of indie studios, it would be terrible for a small studio to be limited to one console only.

          • TheManWithABigToe

            Why is it a bad thing for 1st party games to get released on pc after they have there run on consoles?

          • Country Boy Lucifer

            Because it devalues its worth as an exclusive to the console

          • TheManWithABigToe

            I don’t agree. Most games make all their money in the first 3 months, so after that if it gets released on pc who cares that just is icing on the cake. Ryse for example sold alright on the One and Crytech being into pushing technology they ended up releasing that game again on pc. Why is that a bad thing, it doesn’t devalue that game at all?

          • Country Boy Lucifer

            When they release on PC they get those first 3 months again…

            You kinda disprove your own argument in your own comment…

          • TheManWithABigToe

            Explain to me why the developer would not want that?

          • Country Boy Lucifer

            I’m not following you?

            Developers do want that, its ms that lose out when their exclusives end up on PC, not the developers.

            The developers make more money.

          • TheManWithABigToe

            How are they losing money when they don’t even own the IP. If the developer wants to put it on pc it’s their choice. Ryse is only playable on a Windows pc so to play that game you need Windows which last time I checked is made by Microsoft. It would be different if they owned the IP which is why you don’t see Gears, Forza and Halo on pc.

          • Country Boy Lucifer

            The whole point in an exclusive game is to add value to the platform it’s on.

            If you then say well actually you can play it on PC it loses its value to the Xbox one.

            I don’t know what you’re not understanding about that?

            And please dont say PC is Microsoft..
            ..you know better than that.

          • TheManWithABigToe

            It does add value to the console it is on. If you buy that console for that game and it so happens to come out later for the PC why would that matter? For example, if TLOU came out on PC let’s say 6 months later and all you had was a PS3 or PS4 why would you care that it comes out for PC later? Are you going to feel bad because your console is weaker than a PC and now the game you already beaten looks better?

          • Country Boy Lucifer

            Wow…..I can’t believe you’re not getting this…

            Let me use an actual example instead of a made up one that will never happen.

            If I have a ps4 and a PC and the majority of x1 exclusives end up on PC then there is less value for me in owning an x1.

            Games that are true exclusives like the last of us, second son, killzone, bloodbourne etc have more value to Sony as exclusives as they are the only place you can play them.

            You getting that yet? I don’t know how I can make it simpler

          • TheManWithABigToe

            With MS the IP has value on both the console and PC. Especially when Windows 10 and DX12 come out. I already told you that 1st party games such as Halo, Gears and Forza don’t come out for the PC, at least not yet, because the value for those particular franchises right now are with the One. MS is starting to come back to the PC because they see the value it has. You are able to come out with a game on the One first then months later capitalize on PC sales. It worked for Rockstar why not do the same?

            If I have a ps4 and a PC and the majority of x1 exclusives end up on PC then there is less value for me in owning an x1. MOST PEOPLE DON’T HAVE GAMING PC’S, MOST PEOPLE LIKE THE FACT THAT YOU BUY ONE PIECE OF HARDWARE AND IT LASTS FOR A GENERATION. SO IF YOU LIKE WHAT MS HAS BEEN SHOWING WHY NOT JUST BUY A ONE INSTEAD OF BUILDING A PC?

          • Country Boy Lucifer

            There’s a lot wrong with what you just said so I’ll start from the beginning.

            With ms an IP has value as an exclusive to the x1 if that game then goes to PC it simply does not benifit the x1 and it certainly devalues its benefit as an exclusive. That’s a fact and there is no debating it.

            Games like ryse and dead rising and titanfall have no value at all to ms when they hit PC. The only benifit is to the developer. This is why you will find any game actually developed by ms as in a true 1st party does not go to PC.

            If what you are saying is correct you would see all 1st party titles from ms on PC wouldn’t you?

            Rock star do not benifit from keeping a game exclusive, they are a developer.

            Exclusives are a very simple concept, you still don’t seem to understand it.

            Oh and saying most people who own a console don’t have a gaming PC isn’t actually true. Console gamers where asked if they had a steam account and I believe the vast majority did.

          • TheManWithABigToe

            If the game uses DX it’s benefiting MS.

          • Country Boy Lucifer

            How?

          • TheManWithABigToe

            The only way you get DX is with Windows and that is made by Microsoft.

          • Country Boy Lucifer

            Sigh…..

            Man you’re hard work.

            You’ve ignored or don’t understand anything we’ve been talking about.

            Tell you what if 1st party games from ms Start going to PC then we can say ms is benefiting from it. If they don’t then we can say I’m right. How about that?

          • TheManWithABigToe

            Haha, I’m just being a typical fanboy that’s all. You can tell that Microsoft is now trying to bring the pc and One really close together with Windows 10 and DX12. All Microsoft wants to do is fulfill their fans and that’s it. To me they have done a great job so far and there is more to come.

      • Ridney

        Just like ps4, some exclusives will stay on console and some will go to pc. Same argument could be made about ps4. Sf, no mans sky…etc.

        • Guest

          Not really the same. I never consider No man’s sky or street fighter 5 as PS4 exclusives.
          The whole difference is that there are exclusives like Killzone, Infamous, The last of us… that are exclusives and will NEVER come on PC.

          The XB1 keeps losing exclusives. They will trick the gamers into thinking a game is exclusive to their console so that people buy it and hide the fact that it is coming to another platform.

          There are no AAA exclusives for 11 months (Nov 2014-Oct 2015).
          3 AAA exclusives since 2013. A gerneric racer, a collection of old ports and sunset overdrive that might still end up on another system. And to me is really weak.

    I honestly believe if ms don’t sell off Xbox then the x1 willbe the last ever console.

    They are losing money on both hardware and software sales.

    • brusselsproty

      And that is why MS have BILLIONS and you don’t, you have no idea what you are talking about.

      The Sony PS3 LOST 3.3 BILLION in the first two years of it’s launch, if Sony would of took your advice they would no longer exist.

      • Country Boy Lucifer

        Ms have billions because they make smart business decisions.

        Keeping the Xbox brand isn’t a smart business decision

        • brusselsproty

          You ignored Sony’s PS3 loses and their final outcome but come up with a load of negative nonsense about Xbox.

          And your first sentence makes your second sentence obsolete.

          • Country Boy Lucifer

            Sony are getting rid of the parts of their business that aren’t profitable. I just think ms will do the same

          • brusselsproty

            MS already did that and there is one big difference, Sony were going to go bust anyone could see that, they had no choice and any money they make they are still having to use to prop up other parts of the business, what have they lost this year 1.5 Billion and they haven’t got anything left they can sell off.

          • Country Boy Lucifer

            They also made a profit the last quarter ;)

        • Ridney

          Why because you want it to fail so no one has better games than you since you chose ps4 ?I think i trust microsoft business decisions over yours.

          • Country Boy Lucifer

            I game on PC, ps4 and Xbox actually.

            I never said I wanted it to fail either…

        • Guest101

          What would you know about smart buisness decision? You are just a troll who talks shit on gaming cites.

          • Country Boy Lucifer

            Doesn’t take a genius to know that selling off a part of the business that is massively losing money is a good decision….

          • Sony’s founders disagree

          • Country Boy Lucifer

            You realise its exactly what Sony have been doing?

          • Yup, Sony is destroying it’s history and culture..

          • Country Boy Lucifer

            By becoming profitable? Lol

          • Talking about being Samsung’s and LG’s whipping boy in customer electronics, it’s obvious they can’t compete and should just stay out of their competition’s way…

          • Once again, being a insult to the history and culture of the Sony brand, they used to be a great electronics company and was seen as the leader before Apple and Samsung decided to jump in.breaking the company up into silos is not successful business strategy.

            Like Exynos is to Qualcomm, Brand recognition is essential it’s how Sony became a mega corporation in the first place and Playstation alone won’t keep them up float, sooner or later sales will go down when everybody is tired of this gen, and what will happen if Apple decides to make their own Sensor for those mega popular iphones to keep profits to themselves..

          • What will Sony do if there is competition from Samsung and LG in the near future. Admit defeat,again? Yea it’s real successful business strategy to sell off the company in parts instead of giving customers the reason to buy your products except for PlayStation…

            Sears and Kmart does the same thing, break up your company into silos, Nobody shops there anymore and they don’t have PlayStation to bail them out.. I wonder why? Even Sony admitted they didn’t know why PS4 is a massive success…

          • Country Boy Lucifer

            Yeah I don’t read any of your 3 pointless rants lol

          • Interesting how you couldn’t discredit my comments lol

          • Next time don’t try to out-debate me when it comes to Business :p

          • Country Boy Lucifer

            I genuinely didn’t read them, if I can eventually be bothered I will destroy you

          • Next time go to Business school and learn something smh -_-

          • Ridney

            So then sony should sell off all their other business lines since they lost 1.05 billion again this year. Just keep the ps4 line right ? Call sony and tell em about your good business decisions.

          • Country Boy Lucifer

            Again, do some research that’s exactly what Sony is doing lol

            They actually have several profitable avenues of business, insurance, entertainment etc.

            Stuff that was losing mony such as there PC and TV business are gone or going.

          • petty fanboy

            As will the entire company soon. Lagging business sectors become strong and carry strong business sectors that become lagging within 2-3 years of market. Having very few business sectors is called having all your eggs in one basket. And that is very bad. I agree you know nothing just a petty fanboy.

          • Wizard of Peace

            I believe Sony made a small profit this year. It’s nice that their getting back on track.

    • Ridney

      Thats cauze you are a complete idiot. Xbox one is outselling any other microsoft console. The 2 best franchises (gears and halo) in all of gaming launch in afew months while you get nothing on your ps4. If you think those games wont be great and sell shit tons of copies as well as consoles you are a bigger idiot than you appear. The only one losing money is sony-they just posted another 1.05 billion dollar loss. http://www.gameinformer.com/b/news/archive/2015/04/30/playstation-4-still-bright-spot-amid-staggering-sony-losses.aspx. Ill be extremely surprised if they arent bankrupt in 2 years.

      • Country Boy Lucifer

        You realise every unit they sell is a loss?

        Worth Pou ting out both halo and gears are not being developed by the studios thst made them great.

        • Ridney

          Microsoft makes these games great. Do you honestly think that they let studios make their biggest exclusives in a vacuum and then just release them. They work together. Why do you have so much hate in you its really sad because you are going to miss out on the best games anywhere with gears, halo, crackdown, forza 6, scalebound, quantum, new rare games and all the rest.

          • Country Boy Lucifer

            Gears judgement and halo 4 say hi.
            ….

            I actually can’t wait for scalebound though.

            By the way you assumed I didn’t have an Xbox one…

            Never assume

          • brusselsproty

            Your post history sort of makes it obvious you don’t.

          • Country Boy Lucifer

            Look a little harder you’ll find you’re wrong.

          • TheManWithABigToe

            You must have just bought one not to long ago because in an earlier post with me you said that you go to your friends house to play the One.

          • Country Boy Lucifer

            Na that’s not what I said.

            I have a ps4 and my housemate has an x1 so we have both consoles.

          • TheManWithABigToe

            My bad. That is a good way about having all consoles though. Only pay for 2 but have 3 to play.

          • Ridney

            The order and driveclub, from this gen mind you, say hi.

          • Country Boy Lucifer

            I don’t really follow your logic? What have those games got to do with original studios not developing a franchise and new studios making far inferior games?

          • TheManWithABigToe

            Halo 4 was way better than Reach. Bungie was on the way out way before Reach and it showed. I will give you Judgement though. The same can be said about God of War: Ascension, should have never been made.

  • WRB

    He thinks they gained a little traction back? Lmao sales gap grew with last price cut.

  • William Perdomo

    Xbot fanboys are pathetic ps4 has 22million that pretty much it.

    • Ridney

      Ps4 fanboys are pathatetic microsoft has 100 billion sony 22 million. That pretty much it.

      • Country Boy Lucifer

        Where on earth do you get this hundred billion number?

        • Ridney

          Operating system and software sales for xbox one, pc and mobile. Its a guess but its a massive number much much bigger than sony’s little install base. The devs are lining up.

          • Country Boy Lucifer

            Ha ha ha you’re hilarious.

            You realise in the entire world there are only 7 billion.people….

          • Ridney

            Each with quite a few devices

          • Country Boy Lucifer

            Ha ha ha ha ha

            Dude, please….stop

          • Ridney

            Ok maybe 20 billion….its a big big number

          • Guest

            ha ha ha
            You’re funny. :)

          • Country Boy Lucifer

            Yeah because I’m sure the millions living in poverty in Africa, north Korea, Nepal, India etc etc have several devices lol

            I don’t think you realise how big of a number a billion is.

            Its also nothing to do with the Xbox one….stop being silly

          • saintfighteraqua

            I don’t know, I have at least 25 million PCs (to be fair I only use about 17 million at a time though.) about 13 million 360s and so far only about 8 million Xbox Ones, so if you multiply those numbers by 7-8 billion people…
            In comparison I only have 2 PS3s and 1 PS4 and a Vita.

          • Country Boy Lucifer

            Lol

          • Ridney

            With mutiple devices (assume 4) likely for about a third of the worlds population…that is just shy of 10 billion. Likely in the ballpark. It has plenty to do with xbox one as it will benefit from the devs who are lining up to get a piece of that 10billion user ecosysyem. Remember devs write one set if code and it works across all devices with very minor tweaks. Huge sales for devs under windows 10. Exclusives, apps xbox one gets it all. No other place i would rather be to watch this unfold.

          • Country Boy Lucifer

            Lol please man just stop

          • Ridney

            Sit on the outside and hate or come along for the ride. Im ridin…who knows what windows 10 and dx12 brings to xbox one. I say its gonna be great from everything i have seen. Cant wait.

          • Country Boy Lucifer

            Sigh….

            Even Phil Spencer has said don’t expect gains on the x1 with dx12.

            You’re delusional man.

          • Ridney

            Dude…u are too far gone. Yeah…hes going to tell the public huge improvements that may or may not be met each time depending on developer. No one knows the gains…but there will be gains in multiple area of xbox one. Peace out

  • Tis but a scratch

    ” It looks like Microsoft is gaining a little traction back, but PS4 got a really early lead that will be hard for Microsoft to catch.”

    How freaking old is this comment? When the fauq did Xbox ever gain traction other than 1 month in the US an UK only while worldwide PS4 kept it’s dominance. The only place xbone has a chance to catch PS4 is in the US. Worldwide xbone has zero chance of ever closing the gap.

  • wastheman

    No shit

  • Schroeder

    If Sony can somehow amass good games and continue to improve its product, yeah the XB1 will have a tough time catching the PS4. But Sony’s track record for support and improving its products is bad (see anything mobile Sony has ever done). The PS4’s updates are 1/10 of what is being done to the Xbox One platform with Microsoft delivering software updates monthly and a BIG one to come with Win10 + DX12. On top of that, Sony’s exclusive lineup is weak by comparison to Microsoft’s over the next year. If anyone believes The Order 1886 is going to be good, blah! It’s already been dissed for being another shell of a game meant to impress visually and under-deliver in its gameplay. Regardless, the pressure is on Microsoft to annihilate Sony so bad that it’s considered idiotic to buy a PS4 anymore. That can only happen with aggressive pricing, excellent games (both major franchises and new, cool indie titles), meaningful software (Sling TV, Win10, etc.), and unique experiences (Kinect). The later, Kinect, is an opportunity that still isn’t fully adapted by Microsoft and is one that can be driven harder to separate the XB1 from the PS4. Until that happens, Microsoft’s XB1 sits ~7-8 million consoles behind the leading PS4.

    • tasslehoff

      Actually Sony generally hits it’s Video game stride after the first couple of years where xbox games usually start to fail at that time.

      • Schroeder

        Not really sure where you’re coming from here. The Xbox has two preceding generations, one of which had only a few years of life before being replaced, so it doesn’t provide sufficient data. Sony, on the other hand, is on its fourth generation so there can be enough data. But I disagree. The Last of Us rallied the PS3 and really was the only must-have of the last 2 years. Sony has lost most of its console exclusives with Metal Gear and Final Fantasy jumping ship and going multi-platform. Microsoft has a better studio setup for consistent exclusive delivery. They also have the MONEY to gamble on AAA-would-be newcomers. Sony doesn’t have it (they’ve hemorrhaged money for years as a company). Bloodborne is a highly-rated title, and from what I understand is the only game that is a must-buy for PS4 owners. Everything else has fallen short so far. Maybe they get another good one in this year, but as a company Sony has slid from its once-great spot.

        • tasslehoff

          Actually you can look at Microsoft’s history for video games. As long as they’ve been out as far as games go once they start a new system they let the other go as far as games. 3 Systems and going on 15 years is more than enough to prove it. As far as games leaving yes Final Fantasy and Metal Gear lefT but they have great games with Disgaea, Persona, Uncharted, Deep down, Kill Strain, and Tearaway. Which shoots down that theory because some of those aren’t studios that are old that Sony took a chance on. As far as hemorrhaging money what do you think they did with the Kinect.

          • Schroeder

            But the data for your first generation Xbox is only 4 years of data (2001-2005), whereas the 360 is 9 years of data. Granted, each could still be played and purchased after their successor, but they’re no longer the main game development platform. The XB1 is only 1.5 years old, so there’s nowhere near enough data to claim either. On top of that, Microsoft was gone from 1 game studio to the following:

            343 Industries
            Decisive Games
            Team Dakota
            Turn 10 Studios
            Twisted Pixel Games
            Launchworks
            Lionhead Studios
            Rare Ltd.
            Press Play
            Mojang
            Black Tusk Studios

            Each of these studios are working on a separate title, or titles, exclusive to XB1 (or potential XB1/PC cross-platform games). They’re designed to carry momentum of first-party exclusives on top of the occasional third-party exclusive (Titanfall, Tomb Raider… technically).

          • tasslehoff

            !5 Years or so is enough time to see what a company will do and if you believe Sony hasn’t expanded the studios who make games for them then you’re on some good stuff.

    • Guest

      “But Sony’s track record for support and improving its products is bad”
      That’s a personal opinion that you are trying to pass as fact.

      “Sony’s exclusive lineup is weak by comparison to Microsoft’s over the next year”
      This is subjective. You are again trying to pass your opinion as a fact.
      But I’m curious are you comparing PS4’s exclusives vs XB1’s exclusives.

      “The PS4’s updates are 1/10 of what is being done to the Xbox One platform with Microsoft delivering software updates monthly and a BIG one to come with Win10 + DX12. ”
      Do you have a link to support this claim (1/10 argument)?

      “XB1 sits ~7-8 million consoles behind the leading PS4.”
      And where did you get these numbers from?

  • I hope xbox doesn’t win, before launch MSFT wanted to do some nasty things.
    I don’t like that , if they’re winning then they will turn evil again.
    They will turn evil again.
    But ..

    Well PC’s are superior in a lot of ways.
    But thats okay.
    As long as there’s fun games we are all okay.

  • Billy Beefcaked

    What amazes me is how short sided people are concerning this issue.

    No one wins unless they are neck and neck.

    Without competition products do not progress. Anyone wondering where that 300GB Blu Ray disc is that was promised in 2008 by Sony? You want to know why we have been stuck with 50gb BR discs?

    NO COMPETITION!

    Once Warner Bros sided with Sony there was no reason to continue to push the medium farther. Think about where we would be right now. We would most likely have a minimum 500-750GB blu ray disc, which would allow 4K movies. Because of it we won’t see those for many more years.

    The same thing happens in the consoles. Xbox 360 bitch slapped PS3 for YEARS, and finally in 2012-13 360 got stale. No reason to push the product any farther because they won month in and month out, not only in consoles sold but twice the game attachment rate.

    This….will….happen to the PS4. Without Microsoft nipping at their toes the PS4 will not become better than it already is.

    Sadly too many of you Millennial fools don’t get business 101 let alone how economics 101 works.
