The next xbox is not all about games. (MS shooting itself in foot)

Speaking with Edge Online, Blow notes that the new, still-unknown Xbox 360 successor is ďnot strictly about games,Ē leading him to PlayStation 4 as a result.

ďTo me[,] they talk about a console that is not strictly about games. Itís trying to be the [center] of the living room device, which is fine and maybe itís the right thing for Microsoft to do, business-wise. I donít know; I actually donít think it is, but theyíve certainly thought about it more than me!Ē



If one developer thinks this, you can be damn sure he's not the only one. This is not good news for MS's future.

He also said that he doesn't have good communication with MS, so what would he know?

I like how the GameFAQs spellcheck shows that the word "Wii" is fine, but the words "Xbox" and "Kinect" show up as typos.

They haven't hidden the fact since the inception of the original Xbox that they want to create a box that will be the focal point of entertainment in the living room.

It had, and still has the most games put on its system yearly, so I respectfully disagree.

I'm going to shoot you in the foot if you keep spreading rumors as if they were true.

I'm not agreeing or disagreeing with him, I think it's important to know that this is a typical developers mindset.
