Taken from the article:

"Now, fast-forward seven months since launch, and the console we have is a shadow of the version Don Mattrick stood in front of proudly.

Now, what we are left with is a box that is more powerful than a Xbox 360 and PS3, but canít catch the other console it competes against in pure power.

There is no denying it: the Ps4 is simply a more powerful system, and now that both consoles essentially do the same thing, why would you spend your money on an inferior system. Especially if they are now the same price?"

Good point and that's why people aren't getting on board. Plus the company behind it tried to ruin gaming.

This would be true regardless of the initial policies.....

He is just a troll. I normally ignore him and TC. Or I like to poke at his opinion knowing how wrong he is, but it's really funny that he thinks he has some sort of point.

He is right in a way though...you can't say MS vision was exactly helping gamers everywhere. I'm not saying they intentionally did it, but their vision was quite negative.

Thank you Garage_Man. That's all I'm saying bros. They told us and I quote: "We're going to redefine the definition of game ownership". When pressed for details they had none, just wanted us to jump in head first and pre order anyways without any explanation of what this meant.

This power issue is such a moot point, a real gamer should go into buying a console with more than just power in mind. Features and exclusives are far more important than 900p vs 1080p. A difference the vast majority of users couldn't even notice.

Yeah, just go with the crowd...but not those playing on better televisions/monitors. Because those users will probably notice, at least according to Microsoft.

Totally subjective, not right or wrong, but totally subjective.

My opinion, if power were a moot point, I never would have bought an X1 because I have a perfectly good 360.

I'm a gamer--features? What does that mean in terms of my games? Clapping at my TV?

Exclusives? I agree with you there--if there are games that you prefer on one system over the other, yes. But if you're like some who feel the exclusives on both systems are about equal, then you're left with multiplatform games...

and that's when that power comes into play, because, typically, games will play and look better on the more powerful system.

gamers can still desire the best consoles that plays games they enjoy at the best settings. You have no idea how many casual gamers just buy COD year after year and don't even touch exclusives. Why would they get the xbone when PS4 can play COD that looks better and plays better without frame rate drops. Controller preference is on the individual. Each have their pros and cons. I just need a badass console that plays COD and BF and have it look beast on my tv. And don't bring pc into the discussion. Joe blow(the coworker) is not going to have a $2000 gaming rig to play with me.
