I know kinect is one of the reasons.. but I can't see how kinect is going to appeal to people... the best exclusives aren't gonna play better with kinect.

Hey man, could you give me the winning numbers to tomorrows lotto? I could really use the cash.

Hey man, could you name me a couple of amazing Kinect games? The technology has been out for years and years on 360, you know..


Actually Kinect was ignored because not every 360 came with one, hopefully we will se better integration in the future.

I really like how it was implemented in Dead Rising and Battlefield so far but I do hope for more.

Every Xbox One came with one, and all developers of currently available titles knew this well in advance. So far it has seen the same kind of support it saw on the 360. If it is a mandatory peripheral it needs to have a reason as to why it must be purchased and for most people it has failed to do so thus far.

They didn't slack off.

They hoped that by focusing on a different market the amount of users they gained would be more than those they lost by alienating.

its called marketing.

To answer TC's question, yes. I think they tried too hard to focus on a market that basically doesn't know or care that this thing even exists. And in doing so they pissed off a huge portion of their original user base.

I think so, after:

- Tomb Raider situation
- Fail at illegal Youtube "marketing"
- Not offering nearly as good deals with Gold as PS+ has already given
- No GDDR5
- Multiple HUGE "leaks"
"That's NASCAR tactics."
"Opinions are like magnets, nobody knows how they work." - Foppe

Simply put, set top box.
1080p is the Holy Grail of HD resolution minus the XB1M13.

No. They were making what they wanted to make and then an outcry happened and they changed it up some. Just because it isn't as powerful as the PS4 doesn't mean they slacked.
If LeBron shoots below 56 percent for the regular(obviously) season(2013-14) I'll close my account.

Guys! You gotta make it sexy. Hips and Nips, Otherwise i'm not eatin.

Nope...They put out exactly what they wanted. They are trying something different than just a middling processor and video card upgrade this time around.

I love their direction this gen and hope they continue their path.
I will try and see it from your point of view, but I doubt we'll be able to fit both our heads up there.

They didn't slack off. They cashed in. Or at least, they tried to.
