Locked: I want the XBOX ONE to Fail and Die.....Am I wrong to feel this way?

Forums - Gaming Discussion - I want the XBOX ONE to Fail and Die.....Am I wrong to feel this way?

If you "literally hate" a console then id suggest getting some perspective in your life.

It's actually quite tragic to think that way about plastic and transistors.

I think your sentiment is much too strong.
It's a new way of doing things and it should have the chance to do its thing. I'm not getting one, but if in the end it turns out to be good for the end consumer, we'll have to learn to live with that. We could never know how this would turn out if it never has a chance to do its thing.



I personally think it's alright as long as you have a good enough reason. And to me, thinking that the direction a product is going would negatively affect the industry as a whole or send it down a path you would hate is a decent reason. I honestly never liked motion controls and while I didn't want them to die off completely I certainly didn't want them to be so successful that they became the controls for the majority of games. Wanting the XBone to fail seems similar to me if you believe that its success would open the door to every publisher doing the same.

That said, your desires are probably too fervent in this instance.

I don't get it - offensive threads like these appear here all the time and noone gives a s apparently, but as soon as I post some insignificance I get warning from moderators.

Deus Ex (2000) - a game that pushes the boundaries of what the video game medium is capable of to a degree unmatched to this very day.

It's how it is now... Site has lost all integrity IMO.

It's a zoo.

You're definitly not wrong in this thought. If anything, it's "wrong" for the industry if this thing succeeds. If the Xbone succeeds, gaming is done for IMO, at least for the common person. Developers will continue to get more greedy and take more and more rights from the consumer, and the costs will get farther out of reach for the common gamer. MS and third parties should not be rewarded for their DRM and anti-consumer policies.

Sensitive souls need to leave before launch.

On topic: I am not sure what the Xbone does and doesn't anymore. I am waiting for more clarifications from MS about games sharing.

say anything remotely neg about Sony or a Sony console and a raft of reports swiftly follows.

I don't really agree, to be honest. It's hard for me to believe in anything but, "if you don't like it, don't buy it." I think the term "anti-consumer" is mostly bullshit. In a capitalist world, there is no altruism in business. If Microsoft is the only one pushing the boundaries, it's because they're the only one who thinks they can get away with it. If the market doesn't like it, and it has choices, then they'll fail because of that, not because they've crossed some made-up ethical line in the sand. I don't really understand consumer entitlement and the outrage that comes from that.

I think that's his point, he wants it to 'fail' and 'die' on the market. He can't mean it literally because it's not a living being..and I can't see any other way it could fail or die. He wants people to not like it and not buy it. 



When are these doom and gloom threads gonna stop!? Isn't anybody tired of these negative Xbox One threads? Why can't I be excited for the Xbox One without getting hate? Your hatefulness will not detract my passion for the Xbox brand.

I have internet, so the always online thing doesn't affect me. And I don't even buy my games on physical discs anymore, I buy digital whenever I can. That's the direction Microsoft is moving, to digital only. There's no need for physical discs anymore. Digital is the future people whether you like it or not. Yes Microsoft made some bold decisions with Xbox One, but that's what they needed to do. They needed to make a big enough contrast between the X360 and the Xbox One. And bold decisions get people talking about your product which is a good thing. You guys don't realize the more you talk about Xbox One and the more negative threads you make the more exposure you're giving it and the more curiosity and temptations you elicit from the customers to buy it. So you're only doing them a favor. Therefore if you don't like Xbox One, then don't talk about it.

And the product isn't even out yet, we haven't even had a chance to touch it. So until the Xbone launches and people get it in their hands and they realize how good it is, I think the hate will subside. All the chatter will quiet down.
