This poll is now closed.
The evidence seems to show Microsoft desperately playing catch-up with Sony. Considering all the insider reports of large yield issues, heat problems, and trouble obtaining parts, etc, I think it's reasonable to Microsoft may even top the disastrous 360 launch.

It's definitely not going to be RROD levels of bad but...it's Microsoft.

Aside from wishful thinking by Ponies, the Xbox 1 should run fairly cool. The chances of high failure rates is next to none. The Xbox 360 would have been profitable if not for RROD but instead, they had to shell out over $2 billion. The Xbox One is also not being rushed out a year early and the 360 has had a long 8 year life by now. Then we have the fact that the Xbox One seems to be one big vent and is larger than the PS4.

MS is clearly rushing things

They already admitted Forza is incomplete and Killer Instinct won't even have campaigns at launch. They are selling incomplete products just so they can compete with Sony

They are clearly under pressure and won't be surprised if they f*** again, just like last gen because they couldn't wait a few months

Yep, it's Microsoft who besides the launch 360 has released very reliable hardware. Zune, Surface and 360 slim are all rock solid. I'm saying <5%.

Every fighter has at least some sort of story mode and they said it will be released later. It's rushed. Just because it's unimportant to you doesn't change the fact that they are selling unfinished games

I've been saying for a while now that MS is rushing things. They're so scared of what sony is doing they are making mistakes left and right.

I hope this doesn't shoot them in the foot, but I have a feeling it will.
