Only Titanfall by Respawn will claw a little respect back Microsofts way,they seem to be on a collision course for disaster ,everything they do seems to be picked up in a negative way by most Gamers even myself.
The price cut may seem like a Good thing in the UK but most so called experts believe it's foolish and stupid to cut the price of a console by £30 and include one of there highly anticipated games of the year in on that deal as a freebie.
Not only is this considered a desperate move by Microsoft it is a kick in the teeth to those loyal supporters that bought the Xbox One at Launch at a inflated price point.
They really don't seem to be able to win either way and there downside was the very beginning with there original stupid ideas and PR nightmare presentations .
I can't help thinking that those in charge of Sony that watched there reveal must of been thinking no amount of money we spend on Advertising would have given us as many sales as Microsoft launch presentation...
Sounds like I am bashing the Xbox One and on many counts I am only because last generation they had a superb platform and console with the best version of all multi platform games and now seem to have gone on a suicide mission and the Xbox One has to play extreme catch up as it's lagging way behind there number one competition .
See at the end of the day I want both Microsoft and Sony to be at war with truly outstanding games and systems,I don't think it's good for us Gamers for one of them to be far superior than the other .
Sony have clearly learned that there so called Cell processor in the Playstation 3 was a developers nightmare apart from the in house developers such as naughty Dog.
Xbox 360 blew it out of the water and that's a fact,both current next generation has similar specifications but it goes without saying the Playstation 4 is the superior system never mind how you look at it and what camp your in [ and I'm not taking Dale Winton here [ blush].
Like Bert since taking ownership of the Xbox One it's basically a dust collected apart from the brief 4 days of the Titanfall beta which to me is a system sellar and a reason to buy a Xbox One.
Plants v Zombies is fun and a great game now that's out,will I be spending my time on this in 2 weeks time ,I very much doubt it.
There is a huge March update for Xbox one that puts what should have been included in the first place right,there chat adapter released to coincide with Titanfall 14 th march needs a firmware fix which has to be updated using the lead supplied with your Xbox one.
Also there is support for Dolby digital 5.1 and a whole host of other interesting features ,some good and some Kinnect Support [ who cares about that ]
Fancy selling a console with there vision if how brilliant Kinnect 2.0 is and don't have any games to show of its capabilities .
Don't get me wrong the Playstation Firmware and features needs tinkering and is far from perfect,another console that doesn't even play MP3 or up until now had a actual working Headset.
How the mighty are falling ....The Nintendo Wii was massive hit and sold more than both the Xbox 360 and Playstation 3 ,now look at the state of Nintendo and the Wii U which personally I love.
Wouldn't you just like to be a fly on the wall in the boardroom of the Microsoft Gaming division
