Forums - Gaming Discussion - Why so surprised about the direction MS is taking XBox?

As far as I remember the reasone behind MS market entry into gaming was that they feared Sony would dominate the multimedia center of the living room. Therefore, the XBox One is the obvious next step in the strategy to prevent that.

So why the surprise?

I am not surprised. Micro even tried to pull a deal with Sony and their Playstation if I remember correctly. We are just discussing what we are seeing.

I earned "Proof of Omega", killed the FF7 Weapons, attained "Big Boss" in the "Patriots", found and killed the Red Chocobo in FFXII, platinumed Killzone 2 and LBP. What you got bitch!? Huh?

Not being surprised doesn't mean you have to like it.

PS One/2/p/3slim/Vita owner. I survived the Apocalyps3/Collaps3 and all I got was this lousy signature.


Xbox One: What are you doing Dave?

I would have prefered to be surprised. I somwhat feared about multiple screens features, like smartglass improved

My 2014 GOTY : Lethal League

It's all entertainment at the end of the day so it's only logical that MS and SONY would provide multimedia devices, why just do one thing when you could so much more, makes perfect business sense also, so no surprise.

The surprise doesn't come from the multimedia/other entertainment aspects of the console but the mandatory use of Kinect and the used games policy.

 

Please excuse my bad English.

Currently gaming on:

+Console : Wii U, Xbox360

+PC: i5-4670k@stock (for now), 16Gb RAM 1600 MHz, HD5850 1Gb

Steam / Live / NNID : jonxiquet    Add me if you want, but I'm more a single player gamer.

Because it's the internet and people exaggerate?

I'm not surprised by their desire to dominate the living room, but I am rather surprised by the fact that they think the Xbone is going to dominate anything.
