Microsoft Says If You are Going to Buy a Console for Games, You Will Buy an Xbox One

More bullshit from Microsoft

This statement gave me cancer:

“If you’re buying a console for games, you’re buying an Xbox. Xbox is the platform with the most games, the most exclusives, and probably the most anticipated game of the year in Halo 5. If you’re a fan of Halo, if you’ve ever played Halo, you know how special Halo 5 is. If you never have, the rich story with Locke and Chief and what’s been created — I can tell you, I’ve played through the entire campaign. It’s the greatest Halo ever made. It’s stunning. It’s worth the investment. That game alone is worth the investment.

Plus, if you like Forza or Tomb Raider or any of the other big titles like Fallout or Call of Duty, we have them all. On top of having the premier online gaming service in Xbox Live. If you want to play with your friends, that’s the place to play. That would be my pitch. And we’ll do it at a great value."

 

Right, because great value = paying $60 to unlock multiplayer on the games we own and bought

 

Also, PC has thousands of exclusives.

Your pitch sucks, Mr. Greenberg.

 

Steam machines will crush Xbox in terms of value.

Microsoft's new low-trying to push the Xbone only on exclusives.

Notice that he said "if you're buying A CONSOLE..."

 

still that's pretty arrogant of them...

Don't ask to ask, just ask... please 🤨

Sauron'stm Product Scores:

Spoiler

Just a list of my personal scores for some products, in no particular order, with brief comments. I just got the idea to do them so they aren't many for now :)

Don't take these as complete reviews or final truths - they are just my personal impressions on products I may or may not have used, summed up in a couple of sentences and a rough score. All scores take into account the unit's price and time of release, heavily so, therefore don't expect absolute performance to be reflected here.

 

-Lenovo Thinkpad X220 - [8/10]

Spoiler

A durable and reliable machine that is relatively lightweight, has all the hardware it needs to never feel sluggish and has a great IPS matte screen. Downsides are mostly due to its age, most notably the screen resolution of 1366x768 and usb 2.0 ports.

 

-Apple Macbook (2015) - [Garbage -/10]

Spoiler

From my perspective, this product has no redeeming factors given its price and the competition. It is underpowered, overpriced, impractical due to its single port and is made redundant even by Apple's own iPad pro line.

 

-OnePlus X - [7/10]

Spoiler

A good phone for the price. It does everything I (and most people) need without being sluggish and has no particularly bad flaws. The lack of recent software updates and relatively barebones feature kit (most notably the lack of 5GHz wifi, biometric sensors and backlight for the capacitive buttons) prevent it from being exceptional.

 

-Microsoft Surface Book 2 - [Garbage - -/10]

Spoiler

Overpriced and rushed, offers nothing notable compared to the competition, doesn't come with an adequate charger despite the premium price. Worse than the Macbook for not even offering the small plus sides of having macOS. Buy a Razer Blade if you want high performance in a (relatively) light package.

 

-Intel Core i7 2600/k - [9/10]

Spoiler

Quite possibly Intel's best product launch ever. It had all the bleeding edge features of the time, it came with a very significant performance improvement over its predecessor and it had a soldered heatspreader, allowing for efficient cooling and great overclocking. Even the "locked" version could be overclocked through the multiplier within (quite reasonable) limits.

 

-Apple iPad Pro - [5/10]

Spoiler

A pretty good product, sunk by its price (plus the extra cost of the physical keyboard and the pencil). Buy it if you don't mind the Apple tax and are looking for a very light office machine with an excellent digitizer. Particularly good for rich students. Bad for cheap tinkerers like myself.

and that is over-milked and dried out exclusives at that!

 

Halo died with hte second installment. After that, it turned into the new "mario" or "CoD" or "Battlefield" franchise...

 

although i will give battlefield one point over the other titles i mentioned as they make the explosions bigger and the destruction more detailed every time... CoD just increases texure reslution.

Except for the part where PS4 is whopping Xbone in every way.

Are they on another planet or just got their heads buried?

They're not wrong...

They have: Forza, Halo, Fable...

Backwards compatibility

A controller for the pros who want more.

DVR functionality coming in 2016

They have more features...

I don't see why people are saying they're wrong.

And the Wii U was a failure imo. Nintendo has the chance to beat every other console to a pulp but they took so long with their games that MS and Sony caught up...

This comment caught my attention.

I know literally 1 person that likes the XB controller more than the PS one. What is so special about it that the "pros" want it? 

 

Also Fable: The Lost Chapters is the only good Fable so I wouldn't call that a plus.  :lol:

Pretty much my thoughts on the exactly. I'm hoping that backwards compatibility puts the final nail in the coffin for devs remastering games that don't need it, I mean dishonoured that is silly they couldn't even get it running at 60fps... Not to mention rise of the tomb raider, I think that comes out this year too, sure it's a timed exclusive but it sold a metric tonne when the first re-imagined game came out.

Pros would want complete customization and reliability... And probably something made with a little more metal.

PS4 doesn't have 1st party pro controllers, SURE There's scuff and crap like it but nothing will beat something that engineered, Designed, built, and tested by Microsoft or Sony for that matter.

Everyone knows the Wii is the dominant gaming master race.

 

 

 

 

lol no xddd

Uhmm, recently bought a wiiu to replace my wii.............I need my mario kart and smash.

 

Anyways id much rather have a ps4 than an xbox1, just because it has Bloodborne and I dont care about

some generic racing and shooting games that are exclusive on xbox1.

I like how they tried to make it sound a good thing that you need to pay a yearly subscription fee for multiplayer.

``On top of having the premier gaming service Xbox live.´´ lolz, premier=you pay premium.

PS4 already has inbuilt live streaming and recording... cannot do streaming/lets play with any nintendo shit... unless you wanna get sued.

Forza .... its nice but GT is better imo. From a pure physics and vehicle selection standpoint. Forza has more artistic maps.

Fable is a good point, but Fable will come to PC. So it is not exclusive at all.

halo is dead... they're just milkin it now. Like AC....

 

Backwards compatibility is nice and all, but we have played these games already... very few games on any platform offers good replay value.

 

the Pro controller just adds basic features found in the PS4 controller :|

Well, each to their own, no problem with Wii U at all. Before PC I wanted a Wii U but got a PS4 I highly regretted it.

Oh that. I'm sure it's a great controller and all, I've yet to see one that can beat the stock console controllers for that matter, but I wouldn't call a optional $150 controller that came out few weeks ago (afaik) a deal breaker. It's a plus without a doubt, but it doesn't mean the console that has is "more for gamers". It just doesn't make sense, at least to me. I'd agree if it came as a stock controller, but it's an option.

The ability to google properly is a skill of its own.
