Locked: Should I get a Xbox One?

Forums - Gaming Discussion - Should I get a Xbox One?

Its definitly not a big sucess. Of course, any console is doomed depending on how its creator dooms it.

Microsoft is supporting it but is also expanding to PC because its not the huge sucess they wanted.

Sales are slowing down though. We do know they spike in the US during the holidays and with agressive promotions, but i dont see this one going much further than 20 mil at the moment depending on how many years they string it along (Microsoft is likely to rush a sucesor to the market as soon as they can). PS4 domination this gen.

There have not been a proper Halo or Gears for it. After Halo and Gears I think we'll have a better idea.

Well I was thinking more a long the lines of TitanFall but it's dead, but I can wait around until TitanFall 2. I also don't have a gaming PC so that's why I wanted the XB One to play it with. I seen some of their E3, Not a big FPS person so don't care for Halo, but Recore & Sea of Theives look cool, a bit early to say for sure.


Wait a minute you're not a big FPS person but you want to play Titanfall WTF.  You do know that Titanfall is a FPS.



The Problem for me is, Microsoft managed it to make the Xbox from year to year more unattractive to me. I'm in the boat since the first Xbox which I personally loved and I think it's still the better System compared to the Playstation 2. It was not only the better Graphics, great Games like Halo Dead or Alive 3, Ninja Gaiden, Fatal Frame, Fable, Knights of the old Republic etc. were another reason to get this Console next to my Playstation 2. But even the 360 made a good start for me. They continued with Dead or Alive 4, Ninja Gaiden 2, Fable 2, Mass Effect and great JRPG's like Lost Odyssey and Tales of Vesperia.

But, someway in the middle of the road, Xbox and myself parted ways. I never was a big Fan of Xbox Live which became more popular over the recent years. And I wasn't a big Fan of the Halo Sequels. The same goes for Gears of War. I tried Gears of War 3, it was the Game that was the easiest to get in Germany because the first two are indexed here. Never played a more dull and pointless Game (heard from many people, it's the worst Game in the Trilogy). And so it came, my 360 transformed into a dusty piece of plastic while my Playstation 3 Library grew bigger and bigger.

Well, I think it's all a matter of the personal taste. I always was a Fan of the Niche Games coming from Japan. When the Xbox One was revealed, there was zero interest and after another E3, even with a new Rare Game and a charming Game like Cuphead, I'm still not interested in the things, Microsoft offers me. I'm really happy with my Playstation 4 and my Wii U, so I doubt I will ever get an Xbox One. The Backwards Feature is nice, but overrated in my opinion. People have to read the small letters, it's not as good as it sounds. And when I wanna play Mass Effect or Ninja Gaiden 2, I simply have to dust off my Xbox 360.



Be aware: English is not my native language. The Internetz is the only place I'm partly speaking this smooth language. And because my Signature is so boring, feel free to insert a lame Boob-Joke here: [Insert lame Boob-Joke here]

"Zombie" isn't an option?

I've changed the title to something less baity (previously 'Is the XBOne doomed?').



Of course you should. Just watch the Microsoft E3 conference :)

How do you know Titanfall is dead? It seems to be dead on PC but on Xbone? Which numbers support your statement? And it was recently added to the EA Vault so I don't think it is dead.

Looking at the active community.

The 10k the other guy said is at peak in a really good day... it averages 2k users online most of time and except Attrition the others modes needs 2-4 minutes to get in a match due the low activity.

EA Vault was sure a way to try to increase the interest for a future sequel but right now it has Killzone: SF numbers that I consider pretty much dead too.

Yeah but where do I find data about the active community? I don't want to guess numbers, I want to see them.
