Microsoft Xbox One quote from May 2013 "We purposefully did not target the highest end graphics. We targeted it more as a broad entertainment player."

Why do they include the xbox live gold reason when it was fixed in may, and then subsequently acknowledge that it was fixed in may? Same thing with the price issue. So a proper title should be "Five reasons it was getting crushed by Sony's PS4, three of which are still reasons it's getting crushed by PS4."

Just seems like lazy writing.

Hehe...We get an anti-X-1 Google search every 2 hours from the TC.

Might want to get rid of that sig. to hide your bias a bit.

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.

If this isn't a 500 topic I don't know what is.

It's like they figured out the perfect weapon to target insecurity. I see that website going places every 9 years.

Great article. Hopefully MS can overcome these issues, even if it's looking grim. They have a long, long way to go, and that's if Sony stagnate and have no moves of their own.

"""For years, the Xbox versus PlayStation battle was pretty evenly-matched, with fans of both consoles firmly entrenched on their respective platforms. But today it isn't a fair fight with Sony's (NYSE:SNE) PlayStation 4 literally bullying Microsoft's (NASDAQ:MSFT) Xbox One off the playground."""

Now that's a little harsh. True though.

I didnt read the article (yet) but ill assume its:

- initial bad press
- lack of identity / constant changes
- price
- weaker hardware
- NSA ^ Kinect

Lets see if the article surprises me.

I was close - the paywall is a fair point, but Sony is guilty of that too, albeit to a lesser degree.
