Xbox One Sells Over 3 Million Consoles

Xbox One is off to a great start:

Industry, Xbox One By Larry Hryb, Xbox LIVE's Major Nelson

  • Todd Wegman

    Do you think Microsoft is concerned yet about the PS4 selling over a million more? Hopefully this will only make the Xbox One better- competition is a good thing.

    • Sanpei

      You think so ? I am sure they are thinking about a Kinectless and cheaper SKU but they can not do that now…We ll see

      • WARLORD

        As someone how has both the PS4 and xone I can say thy need to do more then just make it cheaper…. Thy need to fix the OS and party chat… It’s over complicated…The PS4 everything is right there not hard to find what your looking for. The chat is fast and simple much like it is on the 360… Also and this is a biggie there is no pay wall for apps and free to play game’s….

        • Chuck

          “Xbox invite”, not terribly complicated.

          I agree some things on the OS need to be tweaked though, I miss the 360 set up, but I”m sure that is in part because I knew where everything was.

    • slasaru

      They are not YET concerned.
      When there will come good AAA games for free at Ps4, they can start to be concerned. Nothing will save xbox then, given ps4 is more powerful and most investors against xbox one and games (this mean the exclusives will expire in a year or two). And yes, they already offer steambox almost twice as powerful at the same price. Ps4 is also more powerful, and cheaper, and they can still cut the price for ps4 – it does not have kinect included.

      For the coming year xbox one has about 35 games and ps4 has about 70 of them. And there are more releases “ps4 + pc” coming

      Xbox is in dangerous position, i tell you. Btw, i own 360 and one, no Sony products. They have to really make sure good exclusives still coming and most of people doubt about that. They say spent a billion for exclusives – not a big deal considering they spent 100 mln for gamepad alone which has huge problems with bumpers and some buttons sticking (i have xbox button sticking, my fried has B button).

  • Liquidfx Xboxdude

    u can’t play that on your 3ds.

  • Chuck

    Things will really get interesting this time next year when there are actual games out and the masses start to come on board.

  • disqus_icUCvMAJ5v

    As long as the console sells well enough to warrant excellent 3rd party support I’m not sure if I really care if PS4 sells more. Seems to me it’s doing well, I’m not worried about the consoles long term health at this point.

    I do however think it was total BS that the console shipped with the party and chat features that it did. And I also think it’s total BS that the console shipped without supporting established audio headphone standards. I game on it and I stare at my A50′s sitting on the entertainment stand.

    What I would like to know is when MS intends to fix these very large issues? That would be a lot better than listening to Major Nelson try to spin the lack of features like the console was meant to evolve like the 360 did. Truth is that the 360 established those features years ago and there was absolutely no excuse for shipping it’s successor without them.

    So Larry, how about less spin and more real information about what MS is doing to address what is so obviously a grievous error on their part.

  • disqus_icUCvMAJ5v

    I know I bitched a lot, rightfully I may add but I’m really looking forward to Titanfall. That is all.

    • slasaru

      You’ve heard already, it will be 6 vs 6?
      And 720p both on 360 and One…
      I have doubts if should buy it for One…

      • Sanpei

        Really ? 6 vs 6 and 720p ?

        It will be epic fail….Now let me wait Halo 5…That’s the only thing that i wonder on XO now…

        • slasaru

          Halo im waiting too. But would like them to renew controls, something like in borderlands 2, which is ideal. Prvious halo controls were good for the past but now it is outdated. You feel like tractor driver and cannot normally zoom, sprint and the barrel of a gun is always pointing forwards. Needs some next gen improvements, really. And im not worry about the graphics, halo 4 looked amazing.

          • Sanpei

            They should do new Halo like Halo 3….Halo fans dont like COD-Like Halo…Halo 3 and Halo Reach are the best..The least i like is the Halo 4…

      • roozbeh, again

        Yep, pretty obvious it was developed with the 360 in mind.

      • MIke

        6 vs 6… Really? Wow. That’s disappointing.

  • HGamer

    Just curious, with Don Mattrick left and Steve Ballmer leaving, who’s in charge of Xbox now? Who is the one responsible for making all the final decisions on matters?

    Maybe X1 is now a ship with no captain? No one dares to steer the wheel even though every one knows how bad the situation is.

    • Sanpei

      Being with no captain is much better than having Don Mattrick as a captain…

      • roozbeh, again

        Makes you think what kind of position Zynga is right now

    • roozbeh, again

      For a few months now, all of MS has been without a leader.

      It’s anyone’s guess as to what is gonna be the fate of MS…

    • Guest

      Julie Larson-Green.

      • ElektroDragon

        Is that the woman who kept raving about TV shows on Xbox at E3??

        • NerdRage

          she even mentioned she has problems with watching tv without voice control lol x-bone

        • roozbeh, again

          Next watercooler?

          Wasn’t her name Nancy?

  • slasaru

    Yes, but no matter how many ps4 will be sold, MS always can grab more money though Forzas, KI and other games with shops included. Why selling or creating more if you can put bigger prices?

  • roozbeh, again

    Beaten by 1.2 Million MS, gotta do something about that now, shouldn’t you?

    But either way, all in all 7.2 Million consoles have been sold in less than 2 months. Quite staggering, ain’t it? (sorry Ninty, but WiiU is not next gen)

    • Guest

      Three times the markets, yet only 1/3 more in sales. Looks like the Xbox One is doing VERY well. The PoS4 can GTFO!

      • roozbeh, again

        True, but still they should enter those markets quickly.

    • WARLORD

      The funny thing is the xbox one’s last few weeks of sale have tapered off. The weekly number are scary close to the not so next gen Wiiu..

      vgchartz week ending dec 28..
      Xbox one… 290,762
      Wiiu…220,732

      week ending dec 21
      Xbox one..357,303
      Wiiu…319,860

      • roozbeh, again

        So what?

        It only proves that the Wii U is cheap.

        • WARLORD

          LOL cheap ant selling the Wiiu so well… There total numbers are only 5.2 mil… and it’s been out for over a year….

          • roozbeh, again

            Cheap and terribly marketed.

            Next…

          • WARLORD

            That just proves the point….. A cheaper and Terribly marketed product selling almost if not better at some point then Xbox one….

          • roozbeh, again

            vgchartz, remember? Not so accurate.

            I mean how can a console that has sold 3 million in 2 months have almost the same numbers as the dead Wii U.

          • WARLORD

            Its not just vgchartz and the numbers have only been close in the last few weeks..You got to remember the Xbox one Sold over 1 mil the 1st day out….

          • Michael Burden

            Proves nothing other than a more readily available console (WiiU) was a popular alternative since both the PS4 and Xbox One were in short supply during the holidays. Gotta give the kids something for Christmas.

          • WARLORD

            OK that might accounts for week ending dec 21….but not for the last week of the year.

          • roozbeh, again

            “but i think MS needs to change if they want to win”

            There, fixed for you.

          • WARLORD

            Fixed For Me?? No I got mine day one before I new what i was getting , I like it when it (works)… But at this point I find myself playing more with the PS4 and my 360 then I do With the xone…and if thy don’t fix things soon I will probably sell it.

          • roozbeh, again

            You seem to have confused what I meant.

        • Scott Daylor

          I bought a Wii U last summer and really enjoy it. Its finally got some exclusives worth buying on for and its great. It also feels complete and not like an overpriced beta. The XBox One is the only system I bought that I regret buying and not holding out for. The system is just too much of a mess to recommend over anything. Once I get my PS4 this year I doubt my XBox One will get much playtime. My support if going full on Sony once I do. Heck by that time my system will be full anyway. Yeah MS is saying their gonna add external HD support, but if its anything like their flash drives on 360, they’ll likely gimp it at some low number. Maybe they’ll even do their own line of official externals that cost 3 times the normal price.

          • roozbeh, again

            Wind Waker is one of my most favorite games this year, but let’s not kid ourselves, as the only next gen console (which it isn’t) I’ve bought, I can easily say that the Wii U is both terrible value and practically dead. When it has a 5GB update on release day, how the heck was it complete?

            By the same timeline the Xbox one even though it lacks the ease of use and amount of content of the 360, is heck lot better than the Wii U.

          • Scott Daylor

            Well, I only got one last summer so I can’t comment on release day. However I did download that 5 GB patch last July. I don’t know exactly what it added, but once I got my system up and running I never once felt like I bought a beta console on my first day with it.

            I admit though, Nintendo has had a difficult time with the Wii U, but in my opinion its shaping up quite nice with some great exclusives. The 3rd party support might suck, but in my opinion Nintendo themselves can easily do most of their own console support. Stuff like Zelda, Mario, and Metroid are strong titles which sell systems. As long as they keep pumping those out, then I think they’ll be fine.

      • Michael Burden

        Ever think that may because of supply issues? They can’t sell more if they don’t have them to sell. The WiiU has been out for a year already and do not have a supply issue – because very few bought one before as the sales figures show without a doubt. Parents had to buy kids something since the Ones and PS4s were in very short supply, hence the bump in sales over the holidays.

        • WARLORD

          If such a short supply how did the ps4 out sell xbox one in the last 2 week with numbers almost 2 to 1 ??? From what I have seen and heard the xbox one had more units available… Lol I just walked in too Walmart today and thy had 4 xbox one’s and 0 ps4′s…. If supply was so low why did the wiiu come close the ps4 ???

      • ZappyKins

        You can not trust VGChartz, they have some of the biggest trolls out there. They had the PS3 ahead of the 360 in 2010, and had oversold the PS3 by several million. Then someone pointed out they were *millions* off in the PS3 favor. They do that all the time.

        • mauszx

          PS3 has sold better on europe and japan, those markets are big too, xbox has being winning in the us by a lot, this is way those consoles have probably sold the same number in total.

    • StudioMultimédia Gon’Interacti

      wiiU is to nintendo what was the dreamcast to sega

  • Elan Gabriel

    Given the fact that the PS4 is 100$ cheaper, and got released in way more countries – it’s not surprising at all that it sold more than the X1… Having said that, 3 million consoles for the X1 is a very strong and positive start.

    • Wh1plash96

      It was the best launch of Xbox yet…I guess it handle way better than PS4 since xbox one is only in 13 markets and 100 bucks more expensive

      • Sanpei

        This is the success of Xbox360..Customers thought that new Xbox would be like X360..But GUI is something like rushed to launch..It’s not user friendly..If they release a GUI like X360, noone would complain..They could add some extra features to it..Changing all good things is very bad design decision…

    • Scott Daylor

      A strong start yes, but what is the good of it if you’ve let down a big part of the people who bought one? Lets be honest, the system has issues. Im not talking minor issues either. Im talking game save deleting, and dashboard crashes. These seem to be pretty common too, so their far from isolated issues. The system doesn’t even have basic issues like allowing you to manage memory, or check battery life on your controller. Microsoft has been pretty quiet on these issues which tells me they know its a major issue and they don’t want to scare anyone away from buying the system

      And no im no Sony fanboy or some who is jealous I don’t have one either. I waited like a fool for 6 hours in line to get one on launch day. I also own every download only title as well as 9 retail games. So I do have more then I should sunk into it. Im just simply disgusted that MS sold me a beta console that was full of issues.

    • mauszx

      It hasn’t released on more countries, actually the xbox only country pending is japan, while ps4 is japan and other 4 countries.

  • Darryl D Moore

    We have decided not to renew our MLB 2K series for 2014. We are very proud of the achievements made by the MLB 2K team and look forward to their contributions to our future titles, including NBA 2K — our industry’s #1 rated and #1 selling basketball franchise.
    The franchise got it’s start back in 2004 with ESPN Major League Baseball 2K4, and with future iterations was praised for it’s production value, great fielding, and online components. While the franchise went through lackluster reviews, poor sales, and constantly being compared to the stellar MLB: The Show franchise, the 2K series fell on tough times that it just couldn’t seem to shake.

    At the time of this writing, no other publishers or developers have stepped up to state their intentions of making an MLB game, leaving MLB: The Show as the only show in town. This means Xbox One and Xbox 360 owners have quite literally, no options for a baseball title in 2014.

    • Alex Forsyth

      Only sports they care about are football and soccer.

    • deadbox102

      Since I don’t play sports games, this doesn’t concern me in the least.

    • StudioMultimédia Gon’Interacti

      i was hoping for a baseball game, it’s been forever since we had any

  • Darryl D Moore

    How Xbox one will get better when lose game .?

  • Scott Daylor

    I really want to like this system, but its constant crashing, and game save deleting coupled with a lack of basic features (such as being able to check battery life, system memory) make it very tough. I have to say I loved my original XBox and love my 360, but the XBox One left a sour taste in my mouth due to me being sold a beta console. In fact, out of the 20 or so consoles I own, I have to say this is the only one I regretted buying. I’d sell it on EBay to buy a PS4, but i’ve already sunk way too much cash into it to make it worth it. Heck, I wish I could at least sell the Kinect separate, but I won’t get much for that. I kind of enjoyed the first Kinect, but this one is pretty much useless.

    I don’t blame Major Nelson for this and think he’s a legit guy, but Microsoft should have seriously delayed this system another 6-8 months and then released it without Kinect at a slightly lower price point then PS4. Maybe the $350-375 range, upped the hard drive to a minimum of 1 TB. After Microsofts reveal, and E3 disasters, these launch issues were the last thing they needed.

    • Luke MaPi

      I agree with everything.

      The console is beta release.

      After the bad figure at E3, MS would have to be more daring, and do something really great, to regain all the possible buyers disappointed.

      The price will drop very quickly, in my opinion.

      I wait until June, with my One that will almost always turned off, if things do not change … I go back to sony, damn!

      • Scott Daylor

        I don’t think the price will drop anytime soon. Microsoft seems to be very slow to react. Proof of this is giving any kind of comparable bonuses to Playstation Plus. It took them ages to do so and in my opinion Plus is still a better value. Sure the freebies are essentially rentals you only have until you cancel, but they give newer stuff and a lot more of it. To add insult to it, Plus is cheaper to buy. And hey, Sony’s system is not only $100 cheaper, but its more complete feeling, you can replace its tiny hard drive, and they even give you a $10 PSN credit for buying their system. Day one PS4 gamers got Resogun for free on top of that credit, XBox One users got a Killer Instinct demo which they tried to call a free game.

        Anyway, I seriously doubt that MS will dump their NSA spyware device to make the system cheaper anytime soon. I really wish they would since as of now its pretty much useless aside from letting it sign you in faster. The voice commands tend to only work when they want to and the motion commands feel awkward at best. The only games to make any real use of it is dance and fitness. Im not even gonna touch that fighting game with the horrid controls.

        One of the final nails in the XBox One coffin is how they actually make you pay for a Gold subscription to use apps like Skype and Netflix which you can use for free elsewhere. Heck, even my Wii, can stream Netflix for free.

        If MS really wants to clean this mess they’ve made they need to focus on fixing all the systems major issues, release a Kinect free system as I said, and they should give all their suckers that bought the system early something to apologize with. Ya know a free game, or perhaps a free year of Live. Show them your sorry for knowingly ripping them off in hopes of earning back their respect. I already have 2 friends that sold their XBox One’s and upgraded to a PS4. I would have done the same, but like I said i’ve invested too much into it already.

    • CDMAss

      This company is a joke.

    • StudioMultimédia Gon’Interacti

      game not saving correctly, if you are referring to BF4, this is not MS problem, this is DICE releasing an unfinished game. Of course i miss all the basic feature too on the x-one when i compare it to the 360 friendly interface, but it is the first iteration of the dash and it is quite good will certainly evolve fast and great so don’t give up too soon.

      MS is pushing foward the cloud, maybe they will provide decent price package if they ever want to compete against google in that market. I never had any system crash and i hope yours gonna be better soon

      • Scott Daylor

        See I had a problem with Battlefield 4 deleting. However I have read numerous complaints in forums all over with people losing their saves in everything from Forza 5, to Assassins Creed 4. Now some of these complains might be just Sony fanboys, but there are so many of them I think its a fairly widespread issue that isn’t only EA.

        As for the dashboard crashing, I had it happen to numerous games, but Battlefield is hit the worse.. Sorry but im just disgusted with the system and how MS knowingly sold an unfinished beta product to their fans. I’ve been an MS supporter since day one on the original XBox and since have bought 1000s of titles on their platforms. Its a slap in the face to all their supports like myself.

        • StudioMultimédia Gon’Interacti

          the game crashing and going to dash board is a software problem and is not related to xbox. BF4 was the worst, it got fix with the first patch, i never had any crash after that but im pretty sure it can crash again in certain situation. You are confusing microsoft and game developper problem. I ain’t telling the xbox is perfect, i’m just saying you are mixing the two. Same happen on ps4 and it’s pretty annoying on both platform. You should report on the game’s forum and not on MS forum for those problem to get better assistance. the xbox one had a very strong release. they didn’t have to block any feature because their infrastructure wasn’t ready but of course it’s an unfinished product since it is meant to be develop for the next 10 years.

          i truly understand your anger though :)

          • Scott Daylor

            Im leaning on this being more of a hardware issue. So far i’ve had Battlefield 4, Need For Speed Rivals, Crimson Dragon, Dead Rising 3, Lego Marvel, Killer Instinct, and Peggle all dashboard crash on me. I’ve also read countless forum stories of numerous other titles crashing too. If it were only 1 or 2 titles crashing then I would believe it was a software issue, but when im seeing complaints of nearly every XBox One title crashing from various sources, im leaning more towards it being the systems fault. I also have reported these issues. The only advice they can ever give people is to reinstall the games, of clean the system cache. Both of which does not work.

            No I wasn’t expecting the system to have every feature ever at launch. I was however expecting it to be at least as stable as the 360 with at least as many features. Instead it has a very unstable OS with far less features then the 360. Common things on 360 like voice messages are gone. Even the simplest features which everyone would expect are also gone. Come on, I can’t even manage my memory or check the battery life on my controller?

            Microsoft says that their listening to their fans, yet I don’t believe that. They didn’t listen to their fans when they before they showed the system off originally then wondered why they got so much hate. they they reverse the policies and do a quick band-aid fix to the system and the thing is a mess at best. Do you think their going to listen now that they have everyone’s cash? Big companies never do once they have your cash. They simply do not care.

            Hey though, if this is how they want to treat me as a customer then im simply gonna do all I can to persuade others away from buying an XBox One and going with a PS4, or Wii U instead. Im sure others have taken this stance. It looks like people are listening to all the negative feedback as well. Microsoft may have scammed 3 million people like myself into buying one, but over the past month or so i’ve seen countless systems sitting on store shelves in plentiful supply.

          • StudioMultimédia Gon’Interacti

            you are right with that, i don’t understand why all featur eof the 360 are not there. the only valid answer i can find is both ps4 and xone where rush onto the market, both the console and game were not ready, but they did it to answer a large demand. in a way i prefer to have it now and suffer a bit instead of waiting another year for a more complete system and still have to suffer the bug :O) we can’t win !

  • Luke MaPi

    I contributed with one piece … unfortunately!

  • ElektroDragon

    I only buy MS products now for MS games and MS apps. Everything else is done better elsewhere. It didn’t always used to be like this.

    • roozbeh, again

      It actually pretty much was always like this. With the exception of Xbox every other device they made was a failure and their software has progressively gotten less sales over the years.

      But hey, always time for a comeback.

  • CDMAss

    Sony is winning this war almost effortless. They don’t have a good launch line-up, no fancy features and no Kinect. But they listen, they show honor to their own fans. MS has wasted too much time and money doing the wrong things. And they don’t even care to listen.

    • deadbox102

      I think they’re listening. The problem is it takes A LOT of time to fix the fubar that was E3.

      • StudioMultimédia Gon’Interacti

        i dont think anyone is winning anything so far except gamers. Sony sold more in more time in more country, we can’t really compare number yet if that is the only think that make you think someone have won anything… When i see hardware producer trying to sell heatsink for the PS4 it make me nervous for them. So far i’m happy with Xone and with the game coming in

        • deadbox102

          I’m really not concerned with how much the PS4 sells. Xbox is my platform of choice and I’m confident the Xbox One will sell well. The Xbox brand has been innovative since it’s inception than the PS. Just because they make some bad decisions I’m not going to jump ship, as long as they listen to their customers and change when it’s needed. You can’t deny facts. Xbox was the first to have a hard drive and online play. They continue to make changes to their controller. I prefer the 360 controller, but the Xbox One controller is an excellent controller also. The Xbox One is a beast that is still young. Wait until it gets it’s teeth and claws.

          • StudioMultimédia Gon’Interacti

            i got u deadbox102 my answer was an answer to CDMAss, i just didn’t hit the reply button at the right place =)

            i’m surprise you prefer the 360 controller, when i get my hand on it, it feel really bad compare to the new stick. But this is so a personnal feeling that we just cannot debate about it. It still surprise me =) I’m disapointed that bf4 is not using the trigger feedback. Wait n see i guess

          • deadbox102

            I’m surprised BF4 didn’t take advantage of the trigger feedback myself. I’m disappointed with BF4 overall though. I thought the increased lobby size would make for a more intense game. I was wrong.

  • kvfive

    Redeem yourselves MS (Larry, get on the case) FREE top rated game (Forza 5, BF4, Ghosts etc) deposit some ms points / cash in all XB1 owners live accounts, free headset adapters, 3 months free X-Live, play n charge kit ?

    • NerdRage

      hahah

    • Brian Ghattas

      You will get all that…3 years from now.

    • Nexures

      yeah ! come on microsoft ! give us all brand new games for free !! stop being scabby !!!11 and give us free gadgets and consoles because hurr durr !!!1111111111

    • Darian

      I think it’s funny all you idiots think your entitled to something no one stuck a gun in your mouth and made you buy a xbox one. oh and if you think that Microsoft has the ability to give us free games that the developers have put millions of dollars and years of time into.And even if pigs started flying tomorrow the only games you might get free are terrible Microsoft developed and published games nobody wants.All this said I’m not complaining at all I remember the xbox launch and the xbox 360 launch and it took a while to get things right I mean remember that huge bulky controller you could barely hold on the xbox.So if your unhappy with your xbox one go buy a ps4 and shut the $!?# up or wait a while for developers to make some good xbox one titles. Thanks for reading. Much Love To Microsoft

      • kvfive

        “All you idiots ?!?” Great start… well done, it’s not the games fan boy, it’s the o/s – surely even you are bright enough to realise this :-)

        • Darian

          and are o/s’s not updated constantly is my point all these people complain like they were expecting a perfect product at launch and are crazy for thinking that.

            But it’s far from a perfect product, the o/s is missing most of the great features we’ve all come to love from the 360, and all we get from MS is that their listening to the community, seriously MS !! you didn’t think that a next gen console would need a descent working chat system, controller battery life indication etc. I understand there will be issues to iron out on a new console, but come on, these problems most people are angry about should not have been an issue in the first place :( I believe the X1 was rushed to market (almost blind panic) to compete with the PS4,

            My original comment was a pi** take, ‘tongue in cheek’ if u like, don’t take it too seriously dude !

          • Darian

            I agree I didn’t think chat and battery such small things would be ignored or over looked the way they were but it goes to show how much thought they put into the rest of the console and these small problems are no reason for anybody to sell there console it’s going to get better just buy a ps4 as we’ll like most adult gamers with jobs did including myself.I’m a gamer and bought a ps4 solely for exclusive sony titles but I will always be a xbox fan at heart from games to the controller

          • kvfive

            Very very tempted to get a ps4, what’s your honest opinion of it ? Smooth o/s ? Chat feature any good ?

          • Darian

            The PS4 like the ps3 runs smoothly play station only owners aren’t going to complain as much about different things because there comparing it to the PS3 which was a pretty solid console all around but when you have both your going to like and dislike things them side by side but overall the Ps4 works much like the ps3 besides graphics and the touch pad controller which I’m still not sure how I feel about until more games really try to incorporate it in gameplay I’m looking forward to see how great tomb raider looks on both consoles because that game already looks amazing. chat and everything is pretty much the same no better no worse but the o/s and chat are better than xbox at this point.I think sony is winning this console war because they didn’t really have to totally redesign a console xbox put to much effort with making it an all in one entertainment system before a gaming console
            I know so many people that don’t even have t.v service and watch everything online so there boxes are half useless that’s were they went wrong I don’t know about you but nobody like gaming in the living room on a huge screen I have to be in my chair 2 feet from my 32in any bigger and you have to look around to much

          • kvfive

            Wow :) cheers for this, well worded review, I’m gonna have a think about all this, weigh it all up. Have u seen Sony are now offering ps2 & 3 games streamed to the ps4 ? Pretty cool :-)

          • WARLORD

            Yeah its ..

            PlayStation Now Game Streaming service .. Set to roll out this summer on PS3 and PS4 — followed by PS Vita and an
            array of internet connected devices such as 2014 BRAVIA TVs.

    you guys really should launch in all of the other countries and sell these for $399 without the kinect.
    I’m happy with my kinect, but not everyone wants one!! Do that and you’ll see your sales explode like crazy.
    But 3 million is definitely an impressive start given all the negative backlash and $500 price tag.

  • rjo

    I also used to be a fanatical fan of xbox since the very first console they had in 2001 (gamertag:raikox) up untill now, i just couldn’t justify spending my money on their latest effort the xbox one.I congratulate them on their sales succes sofar though despite the negative press they got it’s impressive.

    There is just too much that i don’t like about it, the specs are not what i expected of it and considering they had so many things going for them during the 360 days i have to wonder what happened over at microsoft ??? honestly seeing the specs side by side against the ps4 which i went with instead and the kinect i don’t want they lost me.
    Forza i tried every entry up to 4 and despite giving it long play times and efforts i still don’t like the feel of how it controls/handles, after seeing forza 5 and what the xbox one was all about i knew in my heart i wasn’t going to be happy with it and granted forza 5 looks pretty but i felt disconnected from it especially hearing content wise what is in the game and the microtransaction part which most have read about and sure they fixed it but the damage has already been done, i’m sad to say that after almost having my gamertag for nearly ten years there is a time of coming and going and for me the time was right to jump out instead of in.
    Personally i had a blast with GOW,halo up till part 3,cod up till modern warfare 2 and forza being the least likeable title i have had i always had a playstation next to xbox and this is the 1st time since the ps4 i cut my ties with the xbox brand which i sofar don’t regret. farewell xbox it’s been fun and great while it lasted but where of to where greatness awaits.

    I have been reading some of the comment’s and some of you are Xbox Fans and some are fanboys, well I am okay with that because I don’t care what you are, at the end of the day you got what you wanted.

    All I can say is that everyone should just chill, we all know the dashboard is a BETA so does Microsoft. We are talking about Microsoft… one of the best software company… the best in OS, dashboard will be fixed for sure.

    PS4 is more powerful…blah blah blah… Sir…PS3 was more powerful with blu-ray than the 360 did we see any difference?! just saying…

    PS4 is not that powerful some of you are thinking…

    If you are a true Xbox fan just support Microsoft’s X One and get behind them, talking sh’t behind your PC/Laptop will not make any difference. Microsoft will make the changes, belive me!

    Last one: Enjoy your console (PS4 or X One), stop hating.

      So we should forgive Microsoft for lumping us all as pirates and not giving us freedom to lend games or play offline until we demanded for it? Not everybody is Mitchell Hall, Nick Peck or UNSCleric; people with no pride and proud to suck on the teats of Microsoft and millionaires around here..

      As for your “belief” that the PS4 is not that powerful vs. Xbox One, you might want to visit the many PC sites that say otherwise, Muchacho. It’s downright scary what they compare the Xbox One GFX card to. How about a Radeon HD 7670 Mobile card? However, we will wait and see for that.

      • lll NaS lll

        How about Ryse? Forza 5? is there any PS4 game that looks better than Ryse & Forza 5?!

        • Jeremy Filth

          umm Killzone

        • Brian Ghattas

          Ryse is a nice looking game from the footage I saw of it on Dailymotion but it runs on 720p. Forza 5 is very nice in 1080p; we’ll see how it looks compared to DriveClub.

  • mauszx

    So…. isn’t battlefield 4 really buggy on every single console and PC?

  • kyle dominy

    Love my One! Just in need of a major ui change, the menus are such a downgrade from 360.

  • deadbox102

    Just a request. I would like to be able to make purchases through my Smartglass app and the product download to my X One.
