What do you think of the future of XBOX?

Posted 24 September 2014 - 05:54 PM

There have been rumors circulating on the information super highway concerning Microsoft's plan to drop the XBOX. What are your opinions about it? I think the more competition in the gaming industry, the better. :^:

Xbox doesn't really count as competition in the gaming industry. That's a misdirection. It's a monopolization of the gaming industry. They've already got the majority platform on PC (Windows), and have been attempting to gain the same advantage in the console realm.

Microsoft is a bane on the gaming industry and I'll be glad to see them give up on the xbox.

I haven't heard this at all, but the only thing microsoft is doing is dropping the price some more on the xboxone and doing what they do. I am fine with them in the market or what.. it'll be playstation or nothing? (Yeah - I discount the Wii and WiiU as anything important).

I would be very happy if they dropped the XBox, Playstation is way better IMO, but I'm really not a fan of the new consoles. Honestly (to me) everything after Playstation 2 sucked. I have a working Playstation 1 that was my first console ever, and a working Playstation 2 which was my second console ever. The Playstation 1 is the original model, and the Playstation 2 is the Fat version.

we have all of them and we do prefer the xbox over all the other ones just because the controllers fit our hands better than playstation micro hand controllers... We also like the gaming experience a lot better on the xbox than our sony's

Why would I want to use some copyright infringing emulator? I mean - I don't have any ps2/ps3/ps4 games.. (yes, I have ps1 games).

I don't know, I think that the xbox has a good possibility for life, they just need more games (or new IP) to come out. So far the only game that I have been really excited about for Xbone is Destiny. Other than that I am looking forward to Halo 5, but that doesn't come out until next year (Christmas time I believe), so it is going to be a while before things get really interesting for me.

Emulators are legal in the US - though pirating the games for them isn't. As is dumping the BIOS to use in an emulator. You just can't use someone else's BIOS.

Useful for working around the built-in limited lifetime of new consoles. And for enjoying the games you want to in the way you want to.

I've always enjoyed XBox and I think the net integration on them is what is really stepping up the game but the problem is it's market wide and not something specialized. The biggest killer in gaming right now is the fact that every time a console comes out with something that becomes a popular feature the other consoles have to clone it in their own way. So in the end it comes down to what games are available and has very little in my opinion to do with the console itself.

Re: What do you think of the future of XBOX?

I've always been an XBOX guy, not Playstation. That's mainly because growing up I only played Halo and sports games. I still own a 360 but very rarely play it. I don't have any plans to buy a new console but if I did, I would be getting a PS4 over an XBOX. If M$ were to drop XBOX and the game developers that were XBOX-only started making their games for PS4, I don't see that being a bad thing. But, like someone said earlier, competition is always a good thing. Would hate to see the XBOX go away and then Sony just slack on making a better product because there is no competition (I, too, discount the Wii as competition).

I can't tell the difference between consoles and PCs anymore these days, so I'm a console gamer who plays almost all PC games these days.. If that doesn't make sense.
