Do you think the X1 will win the hearts of the non-techies? - Results (185 votes)
Yes. 192 GB/s and 853 Mhz is much better than 176 GB/s and 800 Mhz.. So that's why it's expensive and awesome!

No. It's expensive and I don't want to "Dance" with friends.

Spec Wars for non techies:

X1 = 192 GB/s, 853 Mhz
PS4 = 176 GB/s, 800 Mhz

X1 > PS4

"Oh it says it says 192 GB/s speed for RAM and 853 Mhz faster graphics processing! It also has full HD camera.

Oh it's ESRAM too. It must be special.

The price is worth the superior product!

one thing that stands more for casuals is the price point lol

Price point goes more with casuals if the Wii has anything to say about it, the lower price and more value is what casuals go for.

Young heroes between the ages of 12-17 make RPG and other video games better then older heroes 18-21 and over.

Non techies as you put it, don't give a f*** about specs. Casuals and the like would go for the cheaper console I'd imagine. May even go for the Wii U.

Also TC, I can't even tell if you're pro XB1 or what. Topic seems suspect.

They all go for the "cool" products. The trending products.

Good points.

But isn't the iPad more popular than your cheaper Nexus?

While it's arguable it seems that the software lineup for X1 is arguably more attractive. (App Store)

2048x1536 res, $ 499 > 2560x1600 res, $ 399

Bet the iPad Mini has sold more than in the same time frame the New Nexus 7.

MS = USA! (instict) Patriotism FTW! -something like that?

So the people who voted no thinks that the smaller number is bigger, or is being fanboyz?

Yeah dude. Casuals don't really care about specs as much as price, entertainment value, and what system their friends play on. Which honestly is the best way to look at it.

Gamers are too reactionary. Games are like fine wine, they must linger for us to get their true taste. There are plenty of examples.

Another stupid poll with a skewed topic title. Yay!

Casuals, just like other people, are mostly affected by which has the best games. They'll pay what it takes if the product is promoted well and is deemed worthwhile.

Being a fanboy = Defending and dedicating yourself to a piece of plastic, made by a corporation that doesn't care about you anyway.
