They're going to have to pull the wool over people's eyes with their advertising, because right now Sony is delivering absolutely more value at a cheaper price.

The term value is very relative to gamers. For example, some players prefer action adventure games better so they choose Xbox. Others prefer JRPG they go with Play Station. Others, platformers and eastern gems so they go with Nintendo.


Action adventure better on Xbox?  does not compute

Kinect advantures has sold 2 million in Europe. 

I live in the US , i know the marketing blitz worked here but not anywhere else.

It would catch on to Europe when they stop calling gaming consoles Play Station (some countries).

US is the biggest and the most lucrative gaming market. Most DLCs, and other after release products sell way better here.

MS is smart, keeping Kinect bundled gives developers more to work with during game development.

You are going to like it bundled until they stop it. Then you going to like choices.

Action Adventure:

Halo, Gears, COD (better Activision support), Rainbow 6 etc...

Hope I didn't overload you.



They could just bundle two years XBL Gold membership with each new XBOne. Bam! That $100 higher price would look justified at least for those that want online multiplayer anyway.

You can't say that the Xbox One controller is the best, seeing as how it's your opinion and more than likely havent used it as well as the DS4 (which has been getting rave reviews since E3).

OT: It's gonna be a tough battle but it'll work in the US. We have a "you get what you pay for" mentality and those that don't know much about games would think that the Xbox one is more powerful because of the extra $100 dollars. Also, coming from last gen where Xbox had such a huuuge mind share and word of mouth, this holiday alot of people will get it because they think all of their friends that own 360 will move to the One as well.

Xbox 360 controller is considered the best in the gaming industry!

Xbox Juan controller improves all the flaws of its predecessor and adds more to greatness. Hmm, I can't deduce how's that gonna be, with people raving about it at E3. I guess you skipped all the articles talking about it.

Not at all, i read about all of the new additions to the Xbox controller and have heard of the praises just like there has been praises for the D4 controller, only difference is that I see that they are both great controllers while you automatically claim that the Xbox one controller is better. By the way, the 360 controller is considered the best by whom to be exact. Again that's subjective seeing as how myself and many others like the symmetrical sticks better than that of the Xbox controller. It's all a matter of preference.

I would say it, if it wasn't a derrogatory term used by innadept FPS players to undermine the genre.
