Would you return the console and replace it with a ps4?

What happens if all of these trolls topics disappeared? Would trolls finally go play their console of choice?

As it stands now the xbo is doing well if not great, at the earliest we'd know in half a year if it failed by that time more games should be announced already if there were none that would interest me among them and third party where to abandon xbo I'd probably do but all cases are highly improbable

Pretty sure being owned by the competition isn't covered in the returns policy

Elaborate on "if the xbox fails". Do you mean that if sales aren't what they expected to get would I return my xbox? Cos if that is what you meant, then it's a pretty dumb question wouldn't you say so? Or do you mean - if my xbox fails and breaks down, will I return it and get a PS4? Cos in that scenario, I will probably return it and replace it with another xbox.

Next stupid topic please!

Most agree Nintendo would actually do something for a change and fill the void.

Seriously Sony vs Sega vs Nintendo each unique and each taking pot shots at each other regularly each also had a broad base of users. More about the games then too as people never argued about the consoles it was always the games.

Then Sega left and Microsoft came in and they didn't tout their games they touted the console they also didn't try to innovate. Instead the bought out companies like Rare and others to weaken the competition. Also sold their console at a huge loss to themselves to undercut them. Sony could keep up with those tactics since their gaming division is also part of a larger company. Nintendo couldn't they have to sell their products at a profit so creating a console to match the power of the others is impossible for them if they did it would probably be a $700+ console as they couldn't eat up the losses to undercut the price. They also loss Rare and their reputation for the best FPS games or now any FPS really.

So they just sit around at the side watching the other consoles duke it out they really can't do anything. On the bright note they do have more than double or even triple the combined profit that Sony and Microsoft's gaming division have on hand. Microsoft's undercut tactic didn't kill off Nintendo or weaken Sony like they thought so their still way into the negatives. They day Nintendo and Sony go is the day DRM and all those other policies get enforced heavily just like they tried to do with their PC's.

But question is XBOX failing so yeah Sony wouldn't need to keep up with the undercut so they'll go back to the PS1 policies. Which will lower the costs for developers and we'll start seeing more original games like we did in the PS1,PS2(Sony,Sega,Nintendo) era instead of the flood of sequels we have today. Nintendo will get Rare back and fill the void Nintendo FPS would return games like Golden Eye, PD, and Turok trilogy were the best in their day. Might even get a return to Conker as we haven't seen any M rated platformers since the 64 even Jet force may return.

What happens if your employer cuts your job because he doesn't want to cover your obamacare then you have to sell your ps4 for rent?

Seriously though what if ps4 fails? You would have a useless silly looking wedge on your hands. If the xbone fails I could still use it as a media hub.

Ok that's some real BS there, Nintendo drove itself in a corner, Sony already patented technology for DRM, Rare continued making games for Nintendo platforms even after being taken over by MS and they weren't good, Microsoft innovated with XBL and the best controller there is, undercutting is essential when going into a new sector

Handhelds don't count and you don't actually think Microsoft purchased Rare to produce games for them do you? In three generations we've gotten 1 Banjo, 1 Perfect Dark, 1 Conker Remake, and 1 Killer Instinct games and that's the span of 3 console generations. Also future Nintendo IP's were also purchased in the process so games like Kameo slated for Nintendo made it's way to Xbox and it too only saw one release. This is business Nintendo didn't drive themselves into a corner they were put there. They bought em' to cripple the competition and it worked. Also undercutting to enter the market is fine but the Xbox brand has yet to make a profit and they continue to do it. They continue to do it even against the will of 20% of their shareholders. Yes 5% of the company is owned by shares and 1% of that 5% are upset hence 20%.

Microsoft was the Enron before Enron the ones plastered all over the news in court rooms back in the day so none of this is new. This is business and their good at it their problem is that Nintendo and Sony are still functioning even when they've lost so many of their exclusives devs and games over the years. Yes Sony has DRM but the problem with Microsoft this gen is they thought the competition was weakened enough to make their move on it which they were clearly wrong. Maybe next gen and all those policies can be put in place.
