Microsoft – Xbox One Will Surprise The World At E3

xbox one high res screenshot 3

Microsoft seem to be raring to go at Sony and prove a point at E3 this year. Their Xbox One reveal conference turned out to be disappointing for most people, but it looks like they have yet to reveal a lot of things.

This shouldn’t be a surprise, really, because the company has spent $1 billion on Xbox One games. Will Sony match that amount of spending by Microsoft? We will see at E3, however, Microsoft is looking extremely confident based on the comments of Craig Davidson, who is the director of global marketing at the company.

“Xbox One will surprise the world during E3,” Davidson said in a recent interview, and added, “We will kill Sony at E3″.

This seems to be something that Ken Kutaragi would have said and such arrogance does not bode well for the company. However, they seem to be motivated and that’s a good thing.

Earlier Microsoft’s Aaron Greenberg had said that they are definitely listening to fan feedback and said that E3 is all about games and they have a lot to share.

    Statements like that make me less inclined towards their system, regardless of how much money they’re spending on games.

    • http://www.facebook.com/s3di.Oo Sǯdi Sǻymeh

      don’t forget that sony started to troll the X1 before they even show it

      so its fair that microsoft can troll them back

      • Roy

        Sony will be dead after next gen. Their shareholder are already tearing them apart and PS4 won’t save them.

          Sounds to me he hit a snare (stepped on your tiny PS3tard c*ck).

            Lol @ your agrees so this is where all those Xbox Nazis live in!!

            Damn, I didn’t know you Xbones could be so autistic.

        • http://www.facebook.com/s3di.Oo Sǯdi Sǻymeh

          they are making their best to even survive and that clearly shows in their tweats and posters … kinda bathetic to big company like sony troll their competition … just saying

      • Martin Brentnall

        I wasn’t aware of Sony ever making reference to Microsoft’s console, although I may have missed it.

        Aside, I don’t take issue with the trolling itself, but rather the way it is carried out. Microsoft’s statement is neither clever nor funny; it just comes off as juvenile. I want to support a company who’s highest priority is to create great games, not one whose primary objective is just to destroy their competitors.

        Let’s not forget that outside of gaming, Microsoft has a long history of destroying their competitors, which is what lead to stagnation in areas of software such as web browsers (Netscape) in the late 90′s, amongst many others. I don’t think anyone wants to see a similar stagnation in console videogames.

        • Nobuttons

          Sony’s destruction (oh yeah, it’s coming) will be their own fault, not MS’s.

          • Martin Brentnall

            Sony isn’t going anywhere any time soon. Sorry to break that fact to you.

          • Russell Gorall

            Whose fault was Microsoft’s last week?

        • http://www.facebook.com/s3di.Oo Sǯdi Sǻymeh

          so if i want to make a reference against anyone i should be funny and trolling … look im not a big fanboy but MS did a good job with not even trolling sony in the first place and then after getting trolled said it their face that they will kill them
          straight to the point baby

          • Martin Brentnall

            And yet again, you fail to cite any reference to these instances of Sony trolling Microsoft that you speak of.

            You’re just making shit up.

          • http://www.facebook.com/s3di.Oo Sǯdi Sǻymeh

            te blurry video of PS4 was released before X1 reveal in one day … and after revealing the X1 sony dev’s tweated about it and made jokes about that they haven’t showed games in the reveal … and off course sony’s posters that’s clearly talks about X1 … is that enough ?!

          • Martin Brentnall

            It’s only enough when you provide links to these tweets and posters that you speak of. Evidence that you don’t show isn’t really evidence.

        • joe

          the most intelligent comment I’ve heard.

          • Paupersaredumb

            …if you’re a PS3tard.

      • Akira2020

        Sony has NEVER trolled Xbox or made negative comments. Go post a link to the “trolling” to which Sony representatives verbally attacked or trolled Microsoft. Fanboys yes, Sony no. Get your facts straight.

        • http://www.facebook.com/s3di.Oo Sǯdi Sǻymeh

          before showing the console sony trolled by showing blurry video of PS4 … and after the event a lot of posters and tweats was from sony against X1 …

          • Martin Brentnall

            The PS4 console tease made no mention or even implications of reference to Microsoft or it’s console. You’re so full of shit.

          • http://www.facebook.com/s3di.Oo Sǯdi Sǻymeh

            dude more than 20 gaming site announced the video as a sony troll on X1 … read the news people , read the news

          • Martin Brentnall

            Gaming sites can spin it however they like; they don’t speak for Sony.

            The FACT of the matter is, the PS4 tease video made no mention or reference – implied or otherwise – to the X1. That is the cold hard fact that no amount of gaming sites can change.

      • Jimmy

        Yeah, remember the “We will let them go first”. Then suddenly the rumor started in January that the Xbox One was already taped out and in production. Sony got scared shitless and came with a BS press conference after that.

        • http://www.facebook.com/s3di.Oo Sǯdi Sǻymeh

          lol yeah … and everybody got mad cause they didn’t even have the final design and its own dev’s (like killzone) didn’t know the final specs so they just made it for 3G rams

          it was all rushed and dumb sony is clearly scared of MS and that’s makes me wanna X1 even more

        • Martin Brentnall

          Yeah, then when Microsoft gave themselves THREE MONTHS to prepare a counter-attack with their own press conference, they completely blew it with a complete PR trainwreck that was far worse than Sony’s. :)

  • Philosoraptor

    Lmfao like they showed the world that crap VCR they released? That ”NEXT GEN CONSOLE”

  • CyberCam

    Articles just like this proves that gullible people these days have more dollars than they have sense.

  • ruefrak

    I’m worried about Microsoft. Following their big reveal they said they were monitoring social networks and found that opinions were 40% positive 40% neutral and 20% negative. Greenberg would later change that to only 10% negative. These guys are living in their own little world and that’s a problem. Spending a billion dollars on games won’t fix everything. They spent a billion dollars on the Kin and we all know where that went (not saying the xbox is the next Kin, just that you cant always buy your way to success)

    • Roy

      With only that vocal 10% being negative you and MS have nothing to be worried about.
      Sony is the one that should be worried with their failure of a Vita and a PS4 that looks to be mighty expensive due to its components.
      Their Trojan horse TV tactic is also something Sony can’t do anything about as MS already has the contracts with all the major players.

      • Axe99

        It’s an odd Trojan Horse tactic though – as unlike DVD and Blu-Ray at the time of the PS2 and PS3, TV is already well and truly in our living rooms – maybe TV is the Trojan Horse for the XB1? I think MS will do just fine in the US, but are going to need to up their game (actually turn up to the TGS and Gamescom, for a start) in Japan and Europe if they want to have much success elsewhere.

        • john

          It wil be like the 360 – will do well in US and UK but PS4 will outsell just like the PS3 did! To have a good foothold in Europe UK is not enough at all – massive gamers in Germany, France, and Spain – and ALL those countries hate the xbox its funny.

    • Martin Brentnall

      Microsoft are well aware of what the reaction is from the public, but they’re hardly going to come out and say that almost everyone hated it. They spin the numbers to something that sounds relatively positive, yet still somewhat plausible. Microsoft have a history of these kinds of dirty tricks.

  • John

    Yeah, they will surprise the world!! We will all be surprised that their presentation will be even MORE shit than the last one!

  • Sonowske

    I’m definitely excited to see what the Xbox One has to offer at E3. I could care less about all the haters.

    • Wiineir

      Couldn’t care less*, no wonder you are getting a xbone

    • Kitty McGoose

      your kind of stupidity hurts the gaming industry

      • Smellingmycum

        Your blind faith in a decade failing company is hurting it even more.

        • Jimmy

          Touché!

    • Anthony J. Mitchell

      How dare you have your own opinion not swayed by the bandwagon of haters who were never going to buy an xbox one anyway!?

      • joe

        who do you think these “haters” are? They are gamers. You should be siding with them, not going for a company that clearly pushes for anti-consumer policies. They will force the whole industry in this direction and they will only cater to core gamers at the on-set of the generation (just like they did during the current generation, look, where are the exclusive new IP’s for the second half of the current generation?) MS dropped gamers in favor of casuals and applications since about 3 years ago. Honestly, what is coming out for 360 right Now? nothing that’s what. When MS started charging for online gaming, gamers didn’t fight back with their wallets, some said it was justified, fine. But now MS pushes for more from us. They will implement the used game fee and once that Pandora’s box is open, it will be a the gamers who suffer. When MS offers “exclusives” what they mean is that they will pay developers to take games that all gamers would otherwise enjoy, and make them exclusive to xbox. They take gaming experiences away from some of us and give it to others. They don’t make their own games. They don’t add anything to the gaming habitat.
        PS: Although I’m interested to see what “1 Billion dollars” gets you in terms of games. It sounds like a ridiculous amount of money. MS doesnt have enough studios to spend all that cash on, so I wonder which developers they have paid and for what.

        • Anthony J. Mitchell

          Got it. Makes total sense. I should be forming hasty generalizations of a console developer based off of random opinions of other people instead of my own. I should not wait for the console to launch, just go along with the bandwagon of haters so you fools can feel better. Never that. I have my own mind and put my money where I like. I will not wavier my faith in a company I have sided with since 2001 to make you or anyone else feel better. Now will fans of Microsoft consoles. Fish elsewhere.

          • Russell Gorall

            You could go by Microsoft’s reveal, just as everyone else has?

            You are talking about a bandwagon, and yet you are saying Microsoft can do no wrong. You are speaking from an opposite bandwagon.

            E3 is going to be exciting for me as a gamer.

          • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=554676479 Anthony J. Mitchell

            I think I clearly detailed my position as wait and see, and specifically do not judge anything based off of a small reveal. Then once the console is released, I can form an informed position. I do not write off things based off of a simple reveal or hersay. I experience it for myself. That is being a responsible consumer, not a fucking retard. I see you are just going to formulate something different no matter what I type. So have at what ever makes you feel better.

          • Russell Gorall

            I just stated the position you have.

            Thanks for clarifying, and happy gaming!!!

          • Axe99

            Wait and see is definitely a valid opinion to have (and the position I’m taking as well), but it’s sometimes useful to form some partial judgements beforehand. It’s an extreme example, but Britain and France played ‘wait and see’ with Hitler for far too long before they worked out what was going on. Personally, I think MS putting everything on their E3 reveal is a very dangerous strategy, and I’m expecting them to disappoint (they’ve raised expectations for fans for E3 to huge levels by shanking the initial reveal), but I won’t write them off until they’ve had their say.

        • Guest

          Actually – MS has right around 22 unique studios.

          AAA games range from 15 million to 100+ million. Now all 22 studios are not probably working on new games, but if they were, that would only be 4.5 million for each studio to make a game.

          So – I don’t know what you’re talking about when you say MS has no studios and is wasting money.

          • Paupersaredumb

            Correct, Microsoft has more studios than Sony for quite a while now. MOST of them are working on content for the new gen.

          • zz

            I googled it and microsoft only has 5 game studios.

          • Jason Andrew Hahn

            you googled it?!?? Quick call the media! You’re a god among men now with unlimited access to knowledge, I wish I could join you…

          • zzz

            I googled it and microsoft only has 5 game studios, not counting the kinect ones.

          • Russell Gorall

            A few of those produce Kinect shovelware, others are mainly for DLC games. They have two or three big boy teams, unfortunately those big boy teams are responsible for taking over existing IP’s such as Halo.

            If you think MS isn’t wasting money, look at $400 million for an NFL deal. Look at the buyout of Rare, which they haven’t done anything with and only has worth for its IP’s.

            If you thrown in hundreds of millions to get early Call of Duty DLC? Working on a Kinect 2 that only half the people who buy the console want, yet it is automatically bundled?

            Stop me when I’ve said enough.

          • Matt

            Russell, you may not like football or the NFL, but a partnership with NFL is a partnership with the most watched spectator sport in the US, by a very wide margin. Next Super Bowl Sunday when 130 Million people world wide watch the game, they will see Microsoft’s name all over the sidelines.
            This sounds much more like a constant, static advertising approach as opposed to simply a waste of money.

            Microsoft Targeting Sports fans that’s so stupid!!! Everybody knows sports fan hate games, and no sports fan ever has a fantasy team!…. Wait neither of these are true so they probably targeted a big market……

            “Xbox on” —- Yay for the free kinect feature that made it possible

            If you think they paid 100 of millions to get COD DLC first, then I think you should put on your tinfoil hat furthermore games like COD don’t HAVE to use the Kinect—

            Are you also mad the Console comes with a controller? Why bitch about what comes with it in the box

        • Dumbpieceofshitfans

          MS has more first parties than Sony now. Good luck with your PS fanboyism. The whiners aren’t gamers as they will get all the systems no matter what and support the industry. No, the whiners are poor paupers following $0ny to their doom.

          • Russell Gorall

            Why are you getting retreads of IP’s by these studios, and games like Lococycle?

          • Dumbpieceofshitfans

            Go back to prison, PoS troll!

          • Russell Gorall

            If I had to deal with being a Microsoft fan and a gamer, I would feel hate, also.

            Happy gaming!

          • jello mellow

            Microsoft has 8 studios. 3 of which only make kinect games.

            Sony has 13 studios. Where are you getting these stupid numbers?

          • Dumbpieceofshitfans

            MS has 22 studios and Sony indeed has 13.

        • Cr4sh

          If the big M had only showed a box and not the controller I would’ve joined the haters, but most people now in days want everything, they forget to enjoy the growing excitement of E3. I’m guessing the big announcements are yet to be revealed and the big M had foreseen this outcome, good or bad press is a hype buildup culminating at E3. A hype I don’t see for Sony’s console. They obliterated Sony’s PS4 hype.

          • Dumbpieceofshitfans

            Correct, even bad press is good press in this sense.

        • Russell Gorall

          Judging by how many people are angry with you right now, I am guessing Xbox One early adopters only care about cable TV, Internet Explorer, Halo and Lococycle.

          Sad what the Xbox brand has become. This is coming from a consumer who has bought three 360′s and thrown thousands more at the 360 brand.

          They seem to be oblivious to the world around them. Windows 8, Zune, Surface. At some point they should just get back to just selling Windows XP.

        • Martin Brentnall

          Absolutely right Joe. Whilst I agree with some others that there are things we should definitely wait until E3 to see, there’s no reason that we can’t also form a valid opinion based on history of the current generation and previous generation(s).

          Fact of the matter is, Sony has been excellent in support of their systems throughout the entire lifecycle, which isn’t something anyone can really argue for Microsoft, and this is the main reason I’m leaning towards the PS4.

          As for the $1 billion; it’s certainly plausible. GTA4 is said to have cost $100 million, so $1 billion would only get you ten GTA4′s, whereas Microsoft is claiming to have 15 exclusives in development, but of course most games don’t cost as much as GTA4 to make, although that would still make them very high budget games.

          That said, any good software engineer will tell you that software development isn’t a production line process that you can just throw more money and resources at to brute force your way to success, so all the money in the world isn’t any guarantee of producing great games.

        • GeeksAreFilth

          No, they said media now and games at E3, but you useless stupid babies went into a temper tantrum when, hey, they really did cover media stuff because stupid kid gamers are not enough of a market force anymore.

          Is that clear enough for you, you unthinking barely multicellular sack of ignorance?

    • keysy

      really??? where does the fanboyism stop. you are really ready to support a console that doesnt support used games. you must be a republican cause you don t give a shit about anyone butt yourself

      • paupertrollsaregay

        Used games are for paupers that are a thorn in the side of the gaming industry. GTFO!

        • i can’t believe this shit

          When you buy a used car does the manufacturer get any of that money? NO. When you buy a used house do the original contruction company get any of that money? No.

        • Martin Brentnall

          Personally, I own over 200 current generation games and not a single one was bought used, as I like to support developers.

          That said, I still support a person’s right to sell their games and buy used games if that’s what they want to do, according to the first-sale doctrine that applies to just about anything else. Why should games be an exception?

      • VISUAL-ANT3

        You know Sony hasn’t said it’s not using a DRM…. So you might be eating those words shortly.

        AND

        MS hasn’t said it’s not supporting used games… They’re just changing the used games model so Devs can pick up a little bit more cash as games cost millions to make.

        • Dane Barrett

          Small correction. MS and the publishers get a little more cash. The devs don’t score bugger all from this.

      • Jason Andrew Hahn

        Where did you hear Xbox doesn’t support used games, did they say that? No?? AWWW, Shutup then, surprised you’re not a republican getting fictional information with illegitimate sources. At least all the bitching is going to force them to make tweaks, so keep it up:-D

    • Russell Gorall

      What is there to hate? A cable box?

      • Fweds

        Eh no a cable box you can plug in as and extra feature it’s not required.

        • Russell Gorall

          From what I have seen the cable thing is the main focus for Microsoft, therein lies the problem at the reveal.

          If going from The Price Is Right, to a Justin Bieber song, to Skype with your grandma is exciting to you as a gamer then go for it.

          If you are going to get a hard on no matter how badly Xbox One looks for gamers, just stay hard.

          • Fweds

            There you see you slipped up again -

            ALL OPTIONAL FEATURES and I can’t wait to get one.

    • Fweds

      Looks like the population of the UK agree with you being that the XOne is leading the PS4 pre order sales..

      As for DRM seems Sony put in a hardware based DRM Patent at the end of last year, it remains to be seen when they finally answer what they are going to do as they have not yet given one straight answer on the matter.

      “Sony Files Patent To Curb Access To Used Video Games”
      NFC technology locks discs into a particular device”
      Sony also left the option open to expand its new technology to other
      pieces of hardware such as controllers, or even digital media “such as
      an office suite, images, and music content.”

      MS are trying to cater for a changing market , console game sales are declining on ALL makes of game console due to Mobile phones, pads and other electronic that can also play games and do a lot more beside, any company that releases a console that can only play games and not much else will have a very short lifespan this time around.

    • GeeksAreFilth

      The greater geek community, especially online, is a pack of pampered brats located at various locations on the autism spectrum. They were told “meda now, games at E3″ and they couldn’t ever understand that, o they launched into their temper tantrum mob. Little crybabies, all them.

    Good luck “killing” Naughty Dog, Sony Santa Monica, Sucker Punch Studios, Quantic Dream, Polyphony Digital, Guerilla Games, and all the other GREAT first + 3rd party studios that make games for the playstation…. Playstation has been BUILDING these great exclusives for OVER a decade…. you can’t just BUY greatness Microsoft…. and nobody is going to believe in your BS after your “amazing” unveiling of the xbox one….. so yea, I’ll say it again… Good luck. Good luck with your always on Kinect too by the way… you showed how much you truly listen to the GAMERS out there when you unveiled the Xbox One and didn’t BOTHER to show any of these “killer” games……… yet chose to stick with the “always on” feature that has been all over the internet for MONTHS… yet you’ve refused to address or change it…….. As a consumer I’d have to be truly stupid to buy something from you guys at this point. And I feel MANY others feel the same way. A few great exclusives won’t change our minds.

    So, come E3, you MAY have 5 or so GREAT exclusives, but you’re STUPID at BEST to think that SONY won’t have at LEAST 5 amazing exclusives of their own at E3, if not 10-20…… Not to mention indie developers are also flocking to the PS4 and leaving you in the dust MS…..

    PS4 has already SHOWN InFamous, Killzone, Knack, The Witness, and Drive Club, etc………… they’re WAY ahead of you Microsoft… all you’ve shown is a big VCR uninspired box and “TV + sports + COD!!!!” And guess what, “sports and cod” can be found on the playstation as well…. LoL.. stop treating your customers as if they don’t realize these things. “TV” is also not a new concept either…. for most of us, and most of us don’t have ANY problem switching the inputs on our TV’s in order to watch TV the ol fashion way, it only takes 1 second to change the channel. ;) You’re way behind to be talking about “killing” …its actually time to say “sorry” to the GAMERS and start backtracking on your “always on” plans… and start SHOWING some GAMES, before TALKING about how big your game is. Pretty pathetic if you ask me, and this MS guys’ comments only make a gamer like myself want to stay away from the xbox one even more than before. Yes I am interested in SEEING what these “15 exclusives” are, but even if all 15 are great, that wouldn’t “kill” SONY, any IDIOT could tell you that much. I don’t like people that are so full of themselves and their BS that they can’t even respect or even SEE the competition. Truly stupid. Again… if your can’t SEE it Microsoft… look right here…. God of War, Uncharted, The Last of Us, Gran Turismo, Beyond: Two Souls, Ratchet and Clank, Resistance, Sly Cooper, InFamous, Killzone, LITTLE BIG PLANET…. and MORE NEW games we haven’t even heard of are just the MAIN examples of what we will probably see coming to the PS4….. (AGENT, anyone????) and only to the PS4. Your competition isn’t going to just lay down for your Microsoft, get a clue dumbasses, or start firing the clueless people at your company and hire some who actually do have a clue. Seeing as you thought it would be best to show “TV” instead of one of these “15 exclusive games” at your xbox one event just shows how clueless you are… or just how bad those “15 exclusives” really are. One or the other, your pick. I’m pretty sure it’s the former, with some of the latter as well. I can’t wait to see how many of these games are Kinect Dance and bs like that… lol.

    *** MOST IMPORTANTLY *** As I said before, for me and for many others it’s not even about the games anymore MS… if you’re too stupid to take away that “always online” feature, then many of us POTENTIAL customers won’t even CONSIDER buying your console, nomatter how many great games are on it. Period.

    AND, on top of that… you’ll need a damn good answer to “playstation plus” as well, if you want to convince a gamer that likes VALUE (like me). I’d rather have DOZENS of games for $50 on my playstation rather than paying $50 just to play online with xbox… but hey, that’s just my personal opinion lol… Also, I’m going to take a WILD guess and say that PS Plus will only get bigger at E3 this year……just like it did last year………………. ;)

    Long story short??? BOY is it going to be fun watching MS trying to kill SONY at this years E3!!!!! :P It will be an event, for sure.

      It’s clear as day that the votes and comments here aren’t representative of popular opinion, they’re not fooling anyone.

      There are either some really butthurt fanboys around, or Microsoft is so desperate to change public perception that they’re paying people to say they like their system and to downvote commenters of the people who don’t.

      Either way, it’s immensely satisfying to see them thrashing around like this in desperation. :)

    I’m still hoping for clarifications on things like used games, Kinect, always online, etc. All of the awesome games in the world won’t make me buy a system if there are limitations to what I can do with my system and my games.

    • paupersshouldbeslain

      It’s not always online, already proven time and time again.
      Kinect as well as the system can be completely turned off (low power mode disabled) through the system options.
      Second hand usage of games will be limited on both the Xbox One as well as the PS4 or both won’t do it, it is the major publishers’ request.

    Unless Microsoft can buy God of War, Beyond: Two Souls, Uncharted, The Last of Us, Gran Turismo, Little Big Planet, Killzone, Ratchet and Clank, Resistance, and more (Knack, Drive Club, THE WITNESS, AGENT???, etc…) ..then I don’t think I or any other playstation gamer will be crying much lol… why so angry man??? Jeez.. some people are truly pathetic. Microsoft hasn’t even announced their games yet… wait a little bit at least before your inner fanbaby comes out… it’s truly pathetic either way actually. Choose your console, no need to act like a baby just because someone else chooses another game console. You kind of sound like the microsoft guy in this article, actually. Full of it.

            Wow, PauperStation fans are spinning again. Conveniently leaving out GT5 Prologue (80) and GT5 (84). Gran Turismo has been surpassed by Forza and many others and the downward trend is already clearly visible in those numbers. GFY!

          But you are going by long term figures and for one specific game not really a guide when that would include all those bargain basement prices of £5 etc, judge the real sales on the first few months a game is released and sold around full price and it paints a totally different picture.

      • Jimmy

        PlayStation fans are getting absolutely desperate. They’re watching Sony being eaten up alive by their shareholders and loss after loss after loss in all their financial reports. Even Sony lying about shipping numbers by combining them to make things look better. It’s just total desperation now that Sony has even less first parties than MS and MS has made so much money with the 360, they know they have zero chance of winning next gen, no matter how hard they try to sway popular opinion on sites that nobody reads.
        Gaming is on Xbox, the over 100 million software sale lead on the Xbox 360 over PS3 proves it and Sony’s market share got slashed in half and will get slashed even more next gen.
        Absolutely pathetic, but that is N4G to the rotten core.

        • Really?

          But we are not talking about if xbox 360 was good or not. It was great. We are talking xbox one. And worldwide, the majority of gamers are really dissapointed. Google GAMESPOT TWITTER BATTLE. Has nothing to do with N4G.

          • Paupersaredumb

  • segaboy78

    If MS adds an ATSC tuner, instead of cable/sat box interface, then I’m def gonna buy one.

    • Jimmy

      ATSC tuners aren’t really necessary anymore. They will be for your TV off-course and providers that still use older cable boxes, but most cable providers already have options in place for IPTV behind a router and that is what the Xbox One is going to use (like the TV apps one your tablets and Windows 8). The IR blaster will then take over your TV set too.

  • breezy

    all this rubbish peeps keep talking about how a real gamer would buy this console or not is really silly. We all know a real gamer would buy both consoles and have the best of both worlds. Its what I have done every gen and its what most gamers do. Fan boys will be fan boys (or girls) Both consoles seem to be bringing something interesting to the floor.
    For the love of god chill out people hate only leads to the dark side!! Good luck to PS4 and XB1 can’t wait to see more of what’s coming.

      Completely agree with your sentiments, even if it does imply that I’m somehow not a “real gamer” because I didn’t buy every console of every generation. :)

      Not that there aren’t 360 games I’d like to play, but I’m overwhelmed with a massive backlog of what I’ve already got on the PS3 and PC, so if that means that I’m not a real gamer, then so be it. :p

    I for one don’t know why there are still such die hard fanboys out there. In the end no matter which console sells more gamers are the true winners. Go to VGChartz and see that even though the 360 had a year headstart the PS3 caught up to it in units sold. That’s pretty awesome. I had a 360 and a PS3 I used my PS3 more because I love the exclusives the PS brand has and more than likely always will. I do love the Kinect it is awesome and I think way better than the Move and I look forward to seeing what both Company’s bring to the industry. Me though I’m going with PS4 why well like I said before for me PS has the better exclusives.

    Why would you want a console to go away, the only reason why we get good games is because this companies are going heat-to-head. As gamers this is something we all benefit from in the end, let the games begin (E3). We are the winners in the end as this companies fight to get our attention.

  • Devon Humpert

    I’m assuming this was a rough translation and “We will kill Sony at e3″ wasn’t the intended message. If it is, that’s a tall order considering Sony is the White Knight of gaming right now. All Sony has to do it announce that they don’t have DRM and don’t charge any used game fees and they win.

  • Dakan45

    Fake claps and cheers confirmed.

  • Dakan45

    Yup.

  • lt.dan

    Maybe they will, but there is just nothing pointing to them being good. They said 15 exclusives, but that could easily be 5 kinnect gimmicks, 7 $10 throwaway games, and then 3 real ones. I see no sign that they will completely turn around to what they are at now. Look at gamestop’s poll. 89% of people are voting for the ps4, even if they shift it 20% with there conference that still puts the PS4 at 69%.

    • Paupersaredumb

      That poll isn’t representative of the total gaming population. It’s being voted on by the small vocal core gaming group. Kotaku already pointed out that they are nearly insignificant as the target audience for Xbox One is much, much larger than that of Xbox 360. It’s all PS fanboy wishful thinking and they will fail HARD!

      • lt.dan

        Because sony’s past performance in the gaming market has been a complete failure. Wait no they haven’t I would say 4 out the 5 consoles they made being huge hits, and the 5th device still being profitable is a pretty good track record. Where microsoft is still having trouble breaking even.

        • Paupersaredumb

          Yeah, but for the past decade Sony as a company has been doing nothing but failure. PSP Go, Xperia Play and Vita are all flops and the PS userbase was slashed In half with the PS3. Good luck with that. MS breaked even a long time ago through software sales, yet somehow VGChartz manages to spin something with BS numbers out of it and corrects those with massive bullshit corrections from time to time. PauperStation fans are so gullible.

          • lt.dan

            When quarterly numbers are announced vgchartz is usually pretty damn close to accurate.

  • ps4?xbox1?

    hahaha I love the way ppl are dissing xbox one for the DRM when nobody knows about the ps4 yet. Yeah ps4 has said that it will play used games but didn’t say how or how much. And before ppl start accusing me for being a straight ms fan. As of right now I am a 360 guy from experience. 2 ps3′s both was a waste of money within 5-6 months both didn’t work right. 4 360′s one did red ring but got replaced for free. Anyways the real reason why I am posting is bc of how everybody is already judging based on a couple of facts and a ton of rumors. Why hate on a system that you don’t know every detail about? Why say “I’m sold to ps4 bc it plays used games”? Or “I don’t want the Kinect watching me”? Even “I’m not buying the xbox1 because you can watch live tv and it’s going away from gaming”. For me I’m undecided and others should also. First question I mentioned why hate on a system that you don’t know every detail about? lol. I mean really why would you? I’m not even going to go into detail bc it is so simple. Second question why say “I’m sold to ps4 bc it plays used games”? Um yeah they did say that it will play used games but is it free or with a fee? Me personally it would not surprise me if they have a fee. Ok next is “I don’t want the Kinect watching me”. How about the new PlayStation Eye? People will complain all day about the Kinect but don’t even think about the PS Eye. There wasn’t a whole lot of detail about the PS Eye so how do u know it’s not an exact replicate? The Kinect does not always stay on, only in standby mode or when playing. Lastly the live tv. I only use Netflix and Hulu so I personally won’t be using this feature but if I did have cable or satellite it would be a nice feature. Other people if you don’t like or don’t use it. Xbox one is not going away from gamers. They are saving the majority of gaming for E3 and not the unveiling. I would of went with a somewhat same approach. Everybody should already know that it will play games and play them with outstanding results. And yeah the PS4 will also play the exact same game outstanding also. All I see is that MS is reaching out to everybody instead of hardcore gamers which will benefit in more ways than one. PS4 staying with just the gamers I think will cause them to lose the console wars. But that is just my opinion. Onto buying one I’m still undecided to which I will buy if not buying both. And no I don’t work for MS nor PS, not getting paid, am a hardcore gamer play a lot more than I should. Hate all u want but don’t be surprised if Xbox One comes out on top or PS4 has the exact same features that everybody is complaining about. Saying that the PS4 don’t do when they don’t know themselves.

      • themuIe

        Tell me, what is the most exclusives Microsoft has released for any of their consoles in a single year? 4? 5? So don’t you think 15 in a single year is a little bit of a stretch and I don’t know, worthy of skepticism?

  • John S.

    From the comments dislikes, I can see most people following this are hardcore Microsoft fans.

    Knowing this, I will share my dislikes about this (which may or may not change in the future, I hope they do though).

    The extra fee for used games (I’m not sure why people WOULD be up for this, but apparently some are).
    The inability to play 360 titles (which would have allowed it to automatically have an immense amount of games at launch, seeing how launches themselves have very few games).

    I would consider this system if these 2 things are not to be, but if not, I suppose I will have to skip Halo 5 or a sequel to Jade Empire (which I’m still hopeful for but I digress)

      There i said it.

      • Martin Brentnall

        I wouldn’t say PS3 games are overrated; certainly not all of them.

        It’s subjective. My friend mostly plays PC and he’s only really interested in strategy, RPG and occasional point-and-click adventure, so he has the same opinion as you. Console style action games are simply not to his taste, and that’s fine, but it’s not the same as being “overrated”.

        • Dakan45

          Same uncharted games, same god of war games, same resistance games… no wait resistance 3 flopped, same killzone games.
          Come on. Shadowfall plays pretty much like every other shooter outhere, they were fun for once or twice, but thats it, too much of the same. no innovation or variety.

          • Martin Brentnall

            I’ll take your point on God Of War, but each Uncharted game arguably has it’s own distinctive character. As for Resistance and Killzone, well, I don’t really care for FPS anyway, but if that’s what you really want, then you made the right choice with PC. I can’t argue with that.

            I’m personally more interested in games like Heavy Rain, Journey, Unfinished Swan, Beyond Two Souls, The Last Of Us, inFamous, Ni No Kuni, Until Dawn, etc. Of course, PC has lots of great indie games too that I’ll play, so I’m not even opposed to PC gaming. Again, it’s just my opinion.

          • Dakan45

            Uncharted 3 was okayish, while the previous were amazing.

    personally don’t think that MS handled the backlash from the reveal well. i only want two games currently for the next gen, and i will probably get them for PC instead of dealing with dishing out another $300-500 dollars for a console i probably won’t use for quite sometime.

    if Microsoft wants to surprise the world, loss the online drm and make it backwards compatible, and have a kill switch for the kenect. your fans will return full force.

    They said multiple times the initial reveal was media oriented and games would be shown at E3. The gamer community is the biggest pack of pig ignorant crybaby morons the world has ever seen. Microsoft said games at E3 and the blubbery little gamer twits were all “duuuuuuuuuhhhhhhhh war are teh GAMEZ duuuuuuuuuuuhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh my brain don’t work good duuuuuuhhhhhhhhhh”
