And feel free to tell me what indicates that the next Xbox won't offer the same gaming experiences like the PS4?

History? Their last few E3 press conferences? Their huge Kinect focus?

Everything I"ve seen and heard over the last few months/years leads me to believe Microsoft is positioning the next Xbox as an entertaiment box for casual gaming while the PS4 will be a gaming console with some entertainment options.

Here is VGKing logic...

MS is putting a big focus on entertainment and casuals. So even though they put out core games as well, the 360 and next Xbox won't appeal to anyone but casuals!

The thing about Sony fans, they don't realize its the 3rd parties that really help draw in the core audiences. 3rd party software accounts for a vast majority of software sales on PS360.

Sony fans feel MS is trying to appeal to everyone, while Sony is just focused on core. Therefore Sony platforms have an unparalleled core experience. While the MS machines are just for casuals.

So the guys they hired from Naughty Dog (The Last of US), Irrational Games (BioShock Infinite), Sucker Punch (InFamous 2), UbiSoft (Rainbow 6 Patriots), Electronic Arts (BF3) will do Kinect family games then?

That depends. Are they additions to the Rare studio?

Nope. I never said the next Xbox will ONLY appeal to casuals. I said that's is Microsofts focus.

Like you said, they will rely on 3rd party and their 1st party games like Halo to sell the console. Is it wrong to ask for something more? Is it wrong to hate the idea of TV and Video services being such a huge focus when most of us just want to play games? What about those who don't live in America? Most of these services will never make it to their countries..

This is just my opinion. My preference. I prefer a console that focuses on core gaming experiences. I don't care about motion controls or services that require monthly subsciptions. Hate me for it.

As a current 4.0 student of English, who's instructor vowed she never gave A's out on drafts, but who routinely received A's on drafts, will say this.

"Xbox guy" is meaningless.  It has no value.  In order to offer weight to his opinion, he could have said "I've owned an Xbox (360) from the day it was released."  "Xbox guy" doesn't qualify whether the person just liked what Microsoft did with the Xbox (360), liked the Xbox (360), or owned the console.  I'm not debating he likes or doesn't like the Xbox.  Just that the weight of the statement "Xbox guy" is weak.

His paragraph structure, more so than his sentence structure is horrible, however.  Every sentence is it's own paragraph.  Every fricken sentence.  It'd have been better to break everything out into bullet points and leave it at that.

I've argued against the merits of the actual article elsewhere.

The irony... That whole sentence sucks, by the way. Not that I can really judge you for this stuff on an internet forum. ;P

On topic, this article is really hard to comprehend. I have no idea what point he's trying to make. And what the hell is "PS4 levitates Sony" supposed to mean?

Nope, they hired a lot of guys from Codemasters and relic though. They might do the next PGR.
Is this something bad now?



There once was a great sig here, but it got killed.

A moment of silence would be appreciated.

Just don't reply to VG King guys, problem solved. These threads would die of a lot quicker.

As for Somini posting this, its not a problem, at least he wil not complain when the same is done for Sony doom articles.

I saw the article earlier, thought it looked like it was written by a Sony fanboy trying to pretend he'd owned a Xbox. That's how far away from being a journalist the writer is imo.

I think you didn't get the joke... Rare did nothing for MS except Kinect titles.

Well it depends on what studio they're going to. I don't see how Microsoft hiring some former employees from these studios is proof of anything. These kinds of things happen all the time.

Kinect games made by Rare this gen:

1.

Non-Kinect games made by Rare this gen:

5.

 

... Yeah, I did not get the joke ...

They are building a new studio in Seattle, some of them are joining the also newly formed Studios in Vancouver (Black Tusk) and Victoria.

But of course, this means nothing. The job ads even ask for 'core gaming experiences' and 'a track record of AAA releases' but all this means nothing.
