you are the CEO of Microsoft your job is to save the Xbox how do you do it?

#1LEGEND_KILLERRRPosted 2/21/2014 6:25:56 AM
so if I was CEO and my task was to sell more systems my goal

I do not worry about what Sony is doing

1 week before Titanfall is released announce that if you buy the game new you get three months of xbox live gold for free

and if you buy a new Xbox one and the game together you will get 6 months for free

a few weeks later I announce all first party games will be $39.99 that's right halo 5 sunset overdrive Gears of War quantum break and so on and so on

right around E3 it's all about the games part 2 this is where the entire conference is all about upcoming games this is where I try to get back the fans that went to the PlayStationtry to get most of the Xbox Live Arcade games from the 360 to the one show them what cloud computing can do. will be in every Xbox 1 game from here on out starting in September all games will be native 1080 P but you must have internet and will be free no gold required

start rolling out big system updates right before the holidays

September Xbox one is 379

then hope the holidays carries it through to next year

Nothing, because the XBONE is already ahead of what the 360 did by this time and the 360 sold around 80 million units in the US. If you really think MS and the XBONE are in trouble then you forgot how bad the PS3 started off last gen.

So basically your idea is to loss billions of dollars with little chance of recovering from tge damage youve done, alinating 3rd party developers by undercutting them and for what?

Goal is long term profitability always has been, always will be. The XB1 may be trailing Sony but they may end up having the same market share of an even bigger market thanks to nintendo falling flat on their face. So reports of its demise have been exaggerated.

I'd sell the Xbox division/brand to another company. Maybe Valve would be interested?

I tell my team to figure it out, I'm just a figure head that lives in a mansion with a hot wife who's only with me for my money but I don't care I'm nailing her. I do tell them to fix the custom music player on my system at home so I don't need to snap and I can play my music.
