Snippets:

Canadian marketing head says new console is outpacing Xbox 360 preorders 2-to-1, no worries about a Red Ring of Death repeat.

As for how Xbox One will fare against the PlayStation 4(which has no games) and Wii U(lol), Flannagan pointed to Xbox Live and the company's focus on social integration as two differentiating factors that will give it the edge. He also said he was proud of the game lineup, saying Xbox One exclusives walked out of E3 with twice the awards of both competitors.

"Xbox One is going to start ahead, in terms of the experience we can deliver," Flannagan said. "And because we're built for the future, we're going to stay ahead. I think there is not a better experience you can buy this holiday, and there will not be a time this generation where there's a better experience you can buy than Xbox One...And it's probably going to be a pretty long generation. We're probably here for a while because we're built for the future. This is a console that will last you, conservatively a decade, if I had to put a bet down today."

It'd be pretty depressing if we're still playing 720p iterations of COD a decade from now.

They all say they were built for the future.

Good luck to your 720p adventure 8-10 years from now.

LOL, all the cows can do is go to the default damage control of "720p".

You guys are getting more pathetic by the day.

#6 Posted by silversix_ (13948 posts) -

MS moto: We build for the future. We build 720p.


MS is suddenly becoming the laughing stock...

#7 Edited by BigShotSmoov007 (234 posts) -

Yeah, it's the only argument that Sony fanboys have right now is the 720p and even with that PS4 games aren't even looking far and away better than any of the XBO games right now. But it's all good, I'm happy for all the games and consoles coming out in a few weeks.

#8 Posted by Heil68 (43276 posts) -

Sony supports their consoles for the entire lifecycle. Just look at this year and the amount of exclusives the PS3 got.

Defending it is just as pathetic, IMO. There's no getting away from the fact that the Xbox One is weaker and $100 more expensive than it's competitor. The differentiators are the products, services, and functionality it offers - and I think MS should absorb the cost of including Kinect 2.0 to sell the customer the products and services they offer.

They're so built for the future that they can't handle 2013. Enjoy your Jaggied blur zone.

That 720p box is built for the future? LOL
It's already way outdated Microsoft, get real

LMAO at the differences in that gif. If thats all the difference I'll see for some Xbox One games, so f'ing what. If you are so dimwitted to believe that nothing will ever change, that dev tools won't mature and devs won't become far more familiar with the One's architecture then I have nothing more to say to you. There is no doubt that the PS4 is more powerful graphics wise for games than the Xbox One. There is no doubt there is a difference you can see from 1080p to 720 upscaled to 1080p. But that difference doesn't register to me in any really great way when compared against the Ones gaming line-up, entertainment features, exclusive programming, fantasy football, and voice/motion controls out the box. I can live without every game being 1080p. What I can't live without is Titanfall, Halo 5, and Quantum Break from Remedy. And I can't justify to my wife another video game system that just plays games that look better and nothing more :) Xbox One is built for the future. I'll be in mine in 15 days :)

@danabo: Sorry but I don't pay attention to marketing heads. They are paid to sell product you know....

It's certainly big enough for you to crawl inside.

#16 Posted by Haveeked (42 posts) -

Lems are stuck with 720p for 10 years LOL

#17 Posted by I_can_haz (6551 posts) -

The future is 720p gaming? No thanks lems, I've been gaming in 1080p since 2004.

the thread already attracted the bandodgers lol.

..........................What's pathetic is you're still blindly loyal to console manufacturer that couldn't even deliver 1080p resolutions for all games when it's almost 2014.

#20 Edited by NathanDrakeSwag (5127 posts) -

A future of 720p and ads LMAO.

#21 Edited by lamprey263 (22880 posts) -

While people might not be worried about RROD, I think (and this goes the same for both MS and Sony's new consoles) any big problems at launch I think will really hurt the launch momentum, if PS4's overheat because of internal power supply or Xbox Ones have horrible cloud support and crash when the snap window is activated mid-game then I feel that info is really going to spread to consumers and influence their purchasing decisions.

#23 Posted by Suppaman100 (3728 posts) -

LMFAO, the Xbone 720p is such a joke.

#24 Posted by SonySoldier-_- (714 posts) -

The future of most games being 720P and 30FPS.

Along with a future of NASA spying on you with kinect 2.0

I feel sorry for lemmings :(

#25 Posted by iambatman7986 (394 posts) -

Built for the future, but can't do what newly released gpus can do now. Imagine what next years cards will make these built for the future boxes look like on a technical level. Just look at the cards AMD and Nvidia have announced, they literally crush next gen consoles. No console manufacturer should tout their console as built for the future when it can't run what the competition can do now. Just saying.

#26 Edited by Shewgenja (8356 posts) -

It's not even built for 2013..

#27 Posted by TheRealBigRich (725 posts) -

I bet if you ask a cow if they really seriously thought that that the X1 wouldn't be able to do more and more 1080p games as the system mature you would be hard press to get areal answer

hahaha!!!

@Heil68:

Actually Sony supports stolen credit cards. Remember that cow? Of course you don't. Because your face and eyes were so far up Kaz's a** to make out the credit card numbers he and PSN took right under your nose while you were busy admiring his scrotum.

How the hell can you just comfortably jump back on PSN after that mess is beyond me.

Didn't sound like he was referring to hardware but rather the xbox gaming experience & exclusives.

Future fisting.

It's a bit of both if you read the full article, the hardware talk was mainly in relation to the RRoD though.

#35 Posted by SinjinSmythe (789 posts) -

double the poly count in KZ:SF and the superior more powerfulister and not future proof ...............PS4.

#36 Posted by Szminsky (1433 posts) -

Ok, that's it. I'm out of system wars for the next few weeks. This fanboy rage war is getting out of hand. Personal attacks against people who prefer another console than the one you choose. THAT'S pathetic.

#38 Edited by KratosYOLOSwag (312 posts) -

Sonys boys can argue all they want, but the one is far superior. MSs new cloud technology will change the 50% power difference in favor of the ps4 to 700% power difference in favor of the one. Sonys boys get a few more ps while xbox gamers get better everything including gamepay with the cloud.

You must be new here.

#40 Posted by YD_11 (1621 posts) -

I'm not worried about the 720p issue cows can't help but mention. The X1 does seem to be the most flexible and adaptable console. Who knows where cloud computing could lead. Kinect is only improving and adding to game play too

#41 Posted by MajesticShea (695 posts) -

double the poly count in KZ:SF

Double the poly count yet half the resolution and frames.

#42 Edited by Netret0120 (2009 posts) -

I didn't know 720p was the future because i have been playing that since 07o_O

Cloud has potential but graphically the PS4 will always be superior

720p and 30 fps TEH FUTURE!!!!!

pc has been doing 1080p and 60 fps since 2005 or earlier. LOL

#45 Edited by Szminsky (1433 posts) -

@Dreams-Visions: I'm here since pre-ps3. Back then people got banned for calling someone an idiot (first hand experience). The profanity allowed nowadays is truly astounding. I'm getting too old for this perhaps. It's pretty interesting coming back to GS after a few years and seeing the contrast.

That's not pathetic. That's SW. If you want everyone rubbing your back while you're writing how amazing X1 is go do it on Official Xbone Magazine. We have nerds here like Tessallation who deserve to be carpet bombed because his DC is priceless.

My credit card was on there during that time and is still on there. #legendary

Kaz took care of me.

Live, Learn and Love, the Sony way.

Don't forget the 15th of November.

MS think we're all idiots and we can be fooled with big talk.

Come out and prove that it's future proof because last time I checked the Bone was considerably weaker than PS4.
