The Xbox One Making a Comeback?
Is the Xbox One beginning to make a comeback? Everyone knows that Microsoft certainly hopes so but is this true? The Xbox One is actually an extremely altered machine from the one that came out to the public about this same time in 2013. It costs less money and has none of those contentious parts that were along with its digital rights management policies. It no longer makes Kinect a required add-on and the graphics processor might possibly have a bit more power to it. Microsoft also broadcast that Xbox One sales had doubled last month after they performed their price cut. Maybe Microsoft’s console is breaking away from the remnants of the launch it had that was filled with nothing but misfortune.
Regardless there are still many worries that abound. The information about hardware sales really only exists at the urges of corporations which sell consoles, so when the public is informed about sales doubling, it is actually unknown exactly what that truly means. It might be an excellent improvement for the Xbox One but the public does not really know the level of problems beforehand. It is believed that the PlayStation 4 will still be on top but with a considerably more dominant Xbox One following in sales.
At the present time, the Xbox One actually kind of looks like the PS4 in its appearance. Bearing in mind how well the PS4 is doing in stores and other outlets, this should not really be considered bad. However it still contains television navigation and HDMI-in as distinctive points but those efforts have not proven to be the game changers Microsoft thought they would be. As the business has been emphasizing in its various news releases, exclusives have once again turned out to be the main differences between each console, and it is unknown how this will turn out in the long run.
It appears that the Xbox One’s major problem at this time is momentum. Even though it might be a very comparable purchase to the PS4 right now, this has not been the case for quite a while and the PS4 was able to take a substantial lead during the time period. That ends up making a huge difference in the video game world because developers start becoming interested in improving consoles and making them with better install bases. However players drift towards any multiplayer platform they happen to see friends using.
It appears to still be somewhat far out from the next real proving opportunity for whichever the Xbox One or the PS4. Launching ended up being first and PlayStation won that one by grabbing hold of the hardcore gaming set. It remains to be seen how the Xbox One and the PS4, respectively, both begin doing when more current games start to arrive on the market, both exclusive and also cross platform. There were numerous titles pushed over to 2015, so it may end up being a 2014 holiday season that really does not give games any reason to make a switch at the present time. Everything remains to be seen.
So is the Xbox One beginning to make a comeback? Everyone knows that Microsoft certainly hopes so but is this true? The Xbox One is actually an extremely altered machine from the one that came out to the public about this same time in 2013.
