What the hell are you talking about. The Xbox One is like a PC, then what the hell do you think the PS4 is like? I guess Sony should just abandon the PS4 also then since the PC does everything the PS4 can but better smh.


That's true, but the PS4 wasn't trying to label itself as "The One."

"The One" sounds like some fan made nickname, I've never seen MS market the Xbox as "The One".



Well in all fairness this is ''the One'' for Microsoft. If it fails they will leave the industry.



Which makes me wonder if they'll just make software (video games) or sell off the Xbox brand and it's portfolio of games. If they went with the latter I'm for Disney or Amazon.



 I think worrying too much about that aspect of the console is a distraction... and it neglects its real problems.

If it was called The One Pile of Dog Poo would not change what it is at heart, a console that is weaker than the competition (PS4) and cost more or the same... doesn't have really compelling 1st pary titles, and it runs the 3rd party titles worst than the PS4.

I am sorry for all these xb1 owners who think they have the platform exclusive advantage compared to the PS4 (or anything really) if there is one it's not important enough to generate interest like the Wii U exclusives to (they make people forget how weak the hardware is, which is what that type of game should do).

Good luck come 2015.

I'd change the name of the site slightly to embrace its failures thus far and who it is aimed at...

Am I doing it right OP?

Depends, were you trying to miss the point entirely? If so, mission accomplished. Break out the confetti and party favors.

No. I think I had it spot on.  If you change the name of your site slightly then you too can embrace what it is to the outside world.

They have deeper problems than just the name...but the whole CONCEPT of what they are trying to force down users throats needs to die a horrible death. They STILL are trying to push Kinect (see recent commercials and comments from Spencer)...they are STILL trying to be the "One box to rule them all", even though customers are OVERWHELMINGLY rejecting that idea.

To be honest, I am not sure that there is any "Fix" for it. Their most intelligent move would be to kill the underpowered, underperforming, underselling console and focus on taking the Xbox brand (and XBL functionality) over to mobile.
