You know, I was thinking. Most sensible gamers aren't gonna buy the Xbox One. Even Xbox fanboys have turned against it, many of them anyway.

But I think we can still expect the Xbox One to do relatively well in sales. Wanna know why?

Parents. There are countless parents out there who will buy anything for their screaming kid. I wouldn't be surprised if 70% of Xbox One units are bought by parents because their 5 year old kid kept hollering for one, not even really knowing what it is...

Im still not convinced this is what the Xbox One will end up being.

Honestly all the features are fine. The Used game and Always on DRM is what has me at a big no way right now. Would rather do without the kinect but i can deal with that.

With the backlash about the used game fees and the Always on DRM i cannot see the stockholders at Microsoft not raising a stink. And Microsoft cannot be that disconnected from reality to see that IF Sony goes the way of no DRM and allows used games, they cannot compete with that. at all.

I hope so, but I think there's enough people that don't care about the restrictions and/or don't know the implications that come with them that it will still, at the very least, survive.

Short answer: Yes.

Long Answer: I dunno for sure. But Microsoft is marketing this console to the Richest of the Richest people and ON TOP OF THAT the Most privileged people too. It has been proven in other markets that if you do this YOU WILL FAIL. How hard and how fast is hard to say though. But the outlook is really bleak for them, compared to their delusions where they think everyone is excited for this. Remember: There were FAKE applause from behind the stage from Microsoft Correspondents at the reveal conference NP: Portal 2, 3DS Games

Not at all. As soon as they put out some kick ass games everything will be just fine.

Gamers have a way of predicting the future, and failing at it. E3 has not even taken place yet, the system has not even been released yet.

How about we relax a little bit? Sheesh, almost makes me embarrassed to be a gamer in general seeing the way these children act.
