Microsoft Studiosí creative director defends always-online Xbox 720

Forums - Microsoft Discussion - Microsoft Studiosí creative director defends always-online Xbox 720

3rd Parties saved who now? Nintendo and Sony must be laughing their asses off at this reaction.

Ill wait to see confirmation, but its wonderful how EA and Ubisoft will come out smelling innocent, but MS is the bad guy for doing exactly what they demanded all along.



“When we make some new announcement and if there is no positive initial reaction from the market, I try to think of it as a good sign because that can be interpreted as people reacting to something groundbreaking. ...if the employees were always minding themselves to do whatever the market is requiring at any moment, and if they were always focusing on something we can sell right now for the short term, it would be very limiting. We are trying to think outside the box.” - Satoru Iwata - This is why corporate multinationals will never truly understand, or risk doing, what Nintendo does.

if this is a genuine Microsoft employee and isn't trolling he sounds so childish lol.

"electricity goes out to" yer not everywhere.

but does it mean we should have consoles that are always online to work? well ask EA for that answer lol



 

 

It would seem that a always online (required) gaming console would be DOA. Maybe it's not a "gaming console" at all. Maybe it is something else. Like a new type of Cable box.

Imagine calling Direct TV / Verizon / Comcast or whatever and saying "I want a Cable subscription".

The Customer Rep says " OK Great we will send someone out. They will be out between 10 am and 3 pm"

The installer shows up to hook the service up and says "Here's your Xbox".

Honestly the only way I could see it working. Not saying it's a bad idea at all. Can a Online Only Gaming Console actually work? I don't think it could being marketed the way other consoles are. The Xbox 360 may very well be the last Microsoft "gaming console".

I know nothing but this. Microsoft has some kind of plan.

So when you guys say "cursed" you're just talking forum fodder and sales charts? Because the N64 was a tremendous success in the market for Nintendo. Yeah Sony might have "handed Nintendo its ass" in terms of hardware sold, but they sold at a loss to do it. Something that, over their course in the market, has not done them any favors.


so yeah i dont know where you got this chart from but im pretty sure its DEAD WRONG, not trying to start an argument i would just lke to see more evidence of this graph being true cuz yeah nintendo with that much profit especially in the days of the GC and N64 is well yeah not true and sony not having that much profit in the days of the PS1 and PS2, also same with the 360 for microsoft.

I think the decision, if true, is not based on what MS wants but what 3rd-partys said when MS was talking to them. No (non-Nintendo) console can survive without support of 3rd-party and I believe they demanded something like this.

We'll see in which way Sony and MS offer different systems and especially how this will effect sales.

I will note that David Jaffe defended this guy on gaf and twitter. Sounds like a good/ok guy who just had a brain fart or a venting session or something that didn't expect it to blow up so much

"Knowing Adam, he was probably fucking around with M. But I've not spoken with him- he MAY believe that, he may have just been kidding. I honestly have zero idea about that part. But I honestly hope he doesn't get fired for it. I know so many of you guys who are opposed to 'online only' don't care (and that is certainly your right) but this is a real human we are talking about with a family and trust me when I say that he's one of the good ones. You may disagree with him about this issue (assuming he really meant what he wrote- and yes, that was his responsibility to be aware of how stuff reads on Twitter and how hungry folks are for news about next-gen, especially from someone with his job title) but I assure you guys: if you knew the guy, you'd be feeling really bad for him right now and really all works out great for him.

Not asking you to change your mind or anything- just giving my perspective on it.

Thanks for reading-

David"

Was that posted on Twitter or over Neo? because i cant seem to find it anywere.

Gaf. He posted like 2-3 times on the matter

and another user pointed out that they have worked together in the past so I guess they knew each other well

It's looking more and more likely that the PS4 will be my 'main' console next gen.
