@DreadedWalrus Right....so why use the Xbox 1 as a comparison then? Why not the PS4? Or indeed why even bother comparing it to a console in the first place?

Sorry, but EG are known for this type of click bait material. By flagging up the xbox they know they will get a shed load of comments. I'm sorry but by putting "Xbox one beating graphics" under the article heading makes it click bait all the way.

And no, I don't own either of the new consoles, so i'm not coming from the fan boy perspective. Personally I think both machines are a big let down at the moment.

Faux outrage that reads as pretentious twaddle. There is enough real stuff going on in the world to get plenty worked up about other than some silly game. Which, clearly, you won't be playing yourself. Good grief. Lol.

For someone who seems to be suggesting that anyone who plays this lacks the intelligence or the correct liberal viewpoint you espouse, you are doing a great job of displaying exactly those same qualities in abundance. Intolerance coupled with a lecturing tone that looks down on the rest of us mere mortals, is a deeply unattractive quality.

You're the kind of person that bangs on about pc issues and yet probably, without realizing, hardly practices any of them yourself. Having a go at people on here for not playing the game and defending it, when you clearly haven't played it either is priceless.

Why Xbox One's ambitious media strategy failed

oldskool4572

4 years ago

This was at launch, and still remains, a compromised product. It was a marketing team that designed this piece of crap, not an engineer. MS deserve all the grief they get for this horrendous brick.

It still amuses me how the MS faithful still defend this nonsense. I mean what do companies have to do before you lot wake up and actually grasp the concept of common sense? You have been royally shafted and its a real shame. I own the original xbox and the 360, and whilst not perfect (what console is really) they at least did the one thing they were meant to do well; gaming.

This travesty is exactly what it looks like; an arrogant and money grabbing exercise by a company who thought they could get away with it (they still might mind you). It's ugly, so no thought given to design at all. Its restricted in power (then again for all the hype, so is the PS4)and its intent to become some set top box to replace all set top boxes (or to sit beside them) was beyond stupid. And, lo and behold, plenty of units at launch were faulty. What a shocker.

It is the ultimate face palm of console design and marketing strategy. It will no doubt do reasonably well, but it really does not deserve to. One cannot defend the indefensible, but due to the mass market culture of gaming now, people will swallow any old shit and then be grateful for it. Don't be grateful, be fucking angry about it. STOP accepting and buying into this nonsense.
You do the industry and yourselves as a gamer and a consumer, a massive disservice for allowing MS to get away with this awful crap.

I personally think that this so called next gen has been a real let down. The PS4 is also pretty average at the moment as well.
Now sit back and watch the negs from children (who are most likely young adults) who really should know better ;)

This demo is nothing more than a cash grab. Its very sad there seems to be so many people on here that are happy to line Konami's pockets for this disgraceful nonsense. You have helped to open the floodgates and will literally pay the price over time. Just wait. This model will be adopted all over the gaming industry. Its all the more galling as I am a huge fan of the series and Kojima.

EG trying to justify it with this silly article doesn't help either. The debate is not whether its a good game; which its not as its a demo. The pricing of it is a far more important issue imo. When the full game comes out then fine, debate its merits till the cows come home. Until then its utter horse manure.

It's just another form of DLC and people have fallen for it.

If you throw your toys out of the pram then expect the face palm.

I enjoyed Fez, not enough to finish it mind, but it wasn't this messianic return to pure gaming (whatever the fuck that is) that so many made it out to be.
