MSoft Dominating As Usual

From the article

We're only two months into the new year, but Microsoft's Xbox One is already winning awards for 2014. The console has been named a "Product of the Year" for 2014 in the Home Entertainment category of Product of the Year's annual awards. The Xbox One came out on top following a survey of more than 40,000 consumers conducted by market research firm TNS. It's not clear what other products the Xbox One beat out to claim the title or how the survey was structured.

Product of the Year winners were featured in an AdWeek exclusive and on the cover of the latest Parade Magazine. According to Product of the Year organizers, the Xbox One--and all other winners--stand to enjoy a 10-15 percent sales boost from being featured as a winner.

Speaking to Parade about the win, Microsoft director of product planning Albert Penello said: "The gaming console has moved out of the basement and into the living room." He's no doubt referencing the Xbox One's "all-in-one" multipurpose nature, that is, its ability to play games, TV, movies, and music.

The Product of the Year organization has a history in the United Kingdom spanning nearly 30 years, but it's only been featured in the United States for six years. Product of the Year CEO Mike Nolan said winners represent "truly superior innovation" in their categories. Other winners include SK Energy Shots (Beverages), Starburst Fruit Flavored Candy Corn (Candy), and Eggland's Best (Eggs).

The full list of Product of the Year 2014 winners is available at AdWeek.

AAA BIG GAMES THAT ARE NOT ON XBOX ONE OR NOT ON PS4

GREAT EXCLUSIVES THIS YEAR CONFIRMED GAME!!!

#8 Posted by FreedomFreeLife (1860 posts) -

Xbox One has race games, PS4 does not have. Even more Xbox One has more fps games and even bigger and better.

Also HD 1080p Skype that PS4 does not have(or not have to hold phone in your hand to show your face...)

Multimedia, better gameclip recorder and editor that PS4 has just 1 function while Xbox One version is larger and better. So is OI and exclusive games. Xbox One multimedia, PS4 can do only 1 thing... meh

A) Most of these games are still in development so you don't know that if they are AAA games.

B) You didn't list all PS4 exclusives.

Yes i'm very jelly of a console that has zero games i like, continuously tries to screw its consumers over, is inferior to the PS4 and any average PC, is bundled with a camera that doesn't benefit gaming and costs 100 dollars/euros more because of it.

Rightfully so. This product will soon become a staple in peoples homes to deliver world class gaming with cutting edge technology.

If you don't have ONE, you are missing out on a great 2014 ahead.

#17 Edited by GrenadeLauncher (3237 posts) -

So you have to pay $70,000 to get your product through. Says all you need to know. Xbone alongside feminine hygiene products, scented bin liners and Huggies, though. Appropriate.

Titanshit isn't the system seller they thought it was, their big Twitch announcement was a bust and their FUD on Thief's framerate has been seen through, this is what Xbots have resorted to. Tragic.

Its a great product. Much deserved.

You're possibly correct, if MS can get their marketing department into top gear. But 'cutting edge technology' ...really, I think you should look at the specifications again.

As for missing out, no one is really missing anything at the moment from not owning either of the new consoles. Apart from a couple of mediocre exclusives that don't justify the purchase of the hardware.

According to FreedomFreeLife, Knack sucks and Kinect Sports is the best game ever.

@GrenadeLauncher: sshhh man. Let them have this one. It's been a rough year for lems. They are praying for just that one bit of news that will make them feel their purchase is validated.

It's like when a kid shows you a drawing,you just go with it and say "good job" no matter how horrifically bad it is.

Um............isn't a gaming console considered home entertainment? I guess for some on this board a console is considered basement in your mom's home entertainment. That would be a long name though and probably doesn't convey the image that the presenters of the award want.

#28 Posted by Shewgenja (7949 posts) -

I'm sure glad they call it "product" and not gaming console.

#29 Edited by GrenadeLauncher (3237 posts) -

I edited it to remove games that don't exist and Kinect guff.

@GrenadeLauncher: You've been kind there, only release windows on Sunset Overdrive and Halo 5 and not a shred of gameplay released yet. Delays on the next-gen titles aren't unheard of. I'll be surprised if Sunset Overdrive is AAA too, Insomniac aren't exactly a AAA pedigree studio but i think the same of Deep Down in all fairness.

#32 Posted by mrintro (1354 posts) -

it's called marketing. MS pays people to hype their products. in fact, I wouldn't be surprised if some people here were being paid to talk it up on the forums

Yeah, if I decided to be stringent it would have been two games on the Bone and three on the Quad.

Obviously this is complete BS. Giving the One Product of the year now, is as stupid as giving GOTY award now, the year isn't even 2 months in.

Also

It's not clear what other products the Xbox One beat out to claim the title or how the survey was structured.

Yeah something doesn't sound right there...................................................

PS4 is selling more and increasing its lead every day. By the time Titanfall launches PS4 will be over 6 million sold and Xflop will not have hit 4 million...

I know they got caught doing something similar before on a couple of sites, definitely something happened with them and Reddit so it wouldn't be a surprise.

You guys aren't getting paid to talk about The One????

I get fat checks weekly from Money Bags MSoft. I can't believe you guys actually talk about the PauperStation4 out of some delusional loyalty, the system has no games for cripes sake. At least I am getting paid to do this.

SONY FAN

I bet the jury that decided that was comprised of housewives and justin bieber tweens. It's a fact that only non-gamers could have such an awful taste.

I was thinking the exact same thing after I read his post. If I didn't know that @FoxbatAIpha was real because of the podcast you would have a tough time convincing me he wasn't a alt of Heils.
