The next XBOX is going to sell really badly
360 didn't outsell ps3 in NA because of Exclusives. It outsold because of Price. Even 2 years after launch (when i bought mine) it was an option of a 60GB 360 for $279 or an 80GB PS3 for $499. My only deciding factor was the price and that was Oct. 2008. Launch was the Same $499 - $599 PS3 while 360 $299-$399.
"I'm not trolling, i own a 360."
Whatever, I got myself a computer.
The state of the pokemon board...
Whatever you say TC. Just because you're upset with your purchase doesn't mean the next Xbox will bomb. They have my purchase, that's for sure. I enjoy Xbox Live too much.

Yeah, don't see the next XBOX bombing. Besides, they make more money on the software than the hardware.
I don't want to post into a brewing flame war (it always happens when a console is slated, true or not) but I kinda agree. Microsoft is trying to make Xbox a media centre, but most people just want games. Yes it's nice having movies and the like at my fingertips, but now it's too complicated, no matter what UI they put over it. They just still keep the extra features, but make them just features, not the feature, if you understand what I mean.
Oh and adverts on every page of the dashboard... seriously?!
Oh wow... Just realised I'm a GameFAQs Veteran :D

This is the thing I have the most issue with. I am paying for the service, yet they are showing me more ads to pay more money for other things that they say is what my fee is being used to pay for so why do I have to pay for the thing I am already being told I am paying for?!.
I am the Magic!
If Microsoft cared they'd let RARE make the games THEY want.
Companies =/= People.
You don't want the company to make games. You want the people who made the great ones to make games.

They treated their consumers like crap by giving XBOX owners one exclusive a year. What will 720 have? Forza, Halo and Gears of War. Not good enough.
I agree with almost everything you said, but I do wind up playing my xbox the most. Xbox has almost no exclusives that I like, while the ps3 exclusives keep growing. I also agree with the pay for online and get no perks the PS+ give some pretty awesome perks for the same price.
PS I too hate how they spam advertising all across the dashboard.
+1 for your post
If you don't like the smell of pigfarts, stay out of the pigpen.
Xbox 360 has out sold PS3 worldwide, which is funny because the Japanese only seem to buy from Sony and Nintendo. So there is one of the biggest gaming markets bot buying Xbox and it still did better than PS3. I own both, but my PS3 is a dust collector. As for exclusives, MGS4 is the only PS3 exclusive I own. I've tried Uncharted, GoW, R+C, Resistance, Killzone, and few others that I either stopped playing because of boredom, or finished and sold because they didn't warrant a second play through (which is sad because I still replay games from the NES on). So where are these console selling PS3 exclusives?
Also, Dreamcast failed because developers were still focused on N64 and PSX titles. The Saturn was a horrible flop, so companies weren't going to invest money in making games for another Sega console until it proved it could move units. Dreamcast ended up with a horrible library. Not only did it not have good exclusives, it didn't have good non-exclusive titles either. That's why it failed.
The next Xbox isn't going to flop. They're not Sega. You're a naive little girl.
