NFL/Microsoft(XBOX ONE) Aim To Enhance Fan's TV Viewing Experience

IMO Xbox one is trying to do too much. Trying to be the "one" entertainment box that a person and/or family needs is a big mistake. This isn't even a "Gaming" console, it is an entertainment box.

 

Most gamers don't have cable, most don't even worry about their basic local channels. They want to fire up a game and play. I like the whole seemless switch between games and applications, but the whole TV aspect shouldn't be a focus point, that should just be an added bonus to the gaming abilities.

 

Integrating social media and connecting everything in the world to the xbox is too much. And guess what, it will probably be priced as such. You have the ps4 coming out as a gaming console, and the xbox as a effing cable box, dvr, home entertainment, gaming device, etc. It will be priced that way. So if a gamer wants to play COD and that's it, they are paying for a "rocket science" camera and a device that lets them do a bunch of crap they will never touch.

 

Weird. I just wanted a xbox 360 with better graphics.

The all in one entertainment would be great for people like me..

I aint living at home where i got free internet and direct tv thanks to mom and dad.

A kid like me who is at school paying for an apartment and paying for utilities, this is a great thing.

Yes there will be fees, but ot would be much easier having everything in one, including a place where i can watch the panthers.

Wow, chill out bud... do you need a tampon?

I am allowed to have an opinion whether you think I'm entitled to or not.

As far as gaming consoles go, I have both and I prefer the XBOX.

Finally, I was unaware that sales was the end all be all in determining what a hard core game is. PC gamers are frequently recognized as the most hardcore gamers there are and I can guarantee you that there aren't as many gaming PC's sold throughout a year as there are XBOX's and Play Stations...

You really need to get a grip on reality lol.

 

 

Because hardcore PC gamers buy their PC's?

Don't forget the Xbox One doesn't come out of the box with all the hardware needed for the ability watch live TV.  You need to buy another piece of hardware to attach to it.  Also that feature would only be available in US at launch.

You do realize that 360 and PS3 sales COMBINED barely compete with the DS, right? Oh, and throw in another 100 million Wii consoles sold (360 and PS3 each sold fewer than 80 million worldwide).

I would say Nintendo knows its market very well... by like a 3 to 1 margin over Sony and Microsoft.

 

Tell me how that next gen Wii U is doing then?  It has been a complete flop.  Nintendo sold a lot of Wii hardware.  Unfortunately they are making nothing from it since no one is actually buying Wii games.

PC gamers prefer to build their PCs instead of buying one pre built

 

But yeah consoles still dominate the market.

PC sales wouldn't reflect hardcore gamers purchases.  Hardcore gamers aren't buying Dell's and HP's

They made a ton of profit from the Wii, it was sold at profit from the launch. Same with the Wii U and the Gamecube. DS and 3ds were more costly but still turned a profit at launch system wise.

Exactly. I've never once bought a pre built desktop.

Ok?  The Wii U has been nothing but a flop.  It is a fact.  It isn't even on the radar with PS3 and Xbox sales and those consoles are many years old.  Nintendo is not even in the console game at this point.

Counting just this year, yea the Wii U has been a flop. Counting November through Now, not as bad but not great.

 

That's generally the case with most new systems, the previous ones will continue to sell better till the games match on the new one.

 

Now if you count just the November - December time period, the Wii U actually had one of the best launch window sales wise in US history. It sold more in the November - December window then both the PS3 and xbox 360 did during there launch window.  The Wii launch was the best at over a million. 

 

Now the Wii U sales have dropped considerably since then, but once they release a Mario or Zelda game they will jump back up.
