As you can see in the photos, courtesy of YouTuber Gaijin Hunter, the product is not offered as what it is: a video game console. To make matters worse, the console is offered with messages like “Super cheap!” and “Recommended!”. The height of this situation is that at the bottom it reads: “If it’s Xbox One S, you can also play video games.”

If you wonder if this strategy will work, you should know that weekly sales report that in Japan only 63 units of Xbox One were sold. If you thought this painful situation could not go any further, a user on Twitter shared a photo of his newly acquired Xbox One S and assured that he bought it to watch the hit anime “Your Name” in UHD Blu-ray video format.

Sounds like what Sony wants to do too. Focus on story based stuff and leave the gaming as a secondary means. These companies are forgetting what gaming is all about.

Yea the company with the most exclusive games on their system this gen and a slew of highly rated games is forgetting what gaming is all about.

Are you even putting any effort into your trolling?

@quadknight: Have you not seen them in action? They focus on hype, they dont even care to show gameplay. They just want to sell you a dream with greatness on the horizon.

Horizon, Ratchet and Clank, Gravity Rush 2, Bloodborne, TLoU and Uncharted dont have gameplay? gtfo. In the case of the later two being cinematic =/= not having gameplay. I swear, sometimes sheep can be worse than lems...

OMG you people are so petty.

OF COURSE they are saying that. XB1 sells like crap in Japan.

Sony did the same thing with PS2 in Europe and in the US.

Guess what? It works.

You guys are children.

Play games and shut up.

This particular sheep is more delusional than your average sheep. He/she is giving lems a run for their money.

UC4 doesn't have gameplay though. But Ratchet and Horizon does for sure. TLOU was gameplay I guess.

No comment on Bloodbourne but the gravity rush 2 demo was gameplay.

CoD also has more gameplay than Mario Kart. You do more input in CoD than in Mario Kart thus CoD > Mario Kart

You may not like it, but thats actual gameplay. You mean to say that puzzles and driving isnt gameplay? Then I guess puzzle games and driving games dont have gameplay either... what a moronic thing to say. Also, the talkin is done within gameplay sections so its not like they interrupt the game flow or anything

first know about the meaning of the actual word before saying somethin stupid

That's what it's being marketed as, because it's the only way to sell something with no games on it. And by games, I mean no freaking JRPG at all!

Idiot, you just did the same thing I did. Defining what we think is gameplay.

And no, I don't define walking/ climbing simulators gameplay.

Oh wait, maybe you right. I guess I mean as I dont find those segments fun gameplay.

"Also, the talkin is done within gameplay sections so its not like they interrupt the game flow or anything"

Cutscenes were longer in 4.

Exactly why I put "fresh game" in quotation marks. Zelda fans are losing their shit because it's the first true open world Zelda but many of us who have been playing open world games for more than a decade aren't particularly impressed. It's a good game but from a gameplay perspective there's nothing particularly fresh about it.

I can tell you upfront as far as open world game goes, I actually like and enjoy Horizon: Zero Dawn then I did for Breath of the Wild. Zero Dawn was a new IP game fresh from Sony vs a well known Zelda game we all love for decades and while Breath of the Wild had a good open world to it, I wasn't heavy drawn in as I was for Zero Dawn.

Witcher 3 is still by far the better open world game of all times follow by Zero Dawn.

What you dont consider "fun gameplay" can still be gameplay. You call me an idiot but it's clear that you're the one here who doesnt understant the meaning of the word. Gameplay isnt a subjective thing. You have input, you have gameplay. You saying "U4 doesnt have gameplay", wich was your original post, is factually false wich I replied to. Now dont be a sad little kid because I pointing out the falsehood of your statement

edit: Oh, and btw, cutscenes can be skipped. I recently replayed Bayonetta. It has cutscenes that can take up to 5 whole min if not more. Does that mean the game doesnt have gameplay? gtfo. Dont want cutscenes, just skip them. Its not that hard

I totally agree.

Witcher 3 is still the best open world game I've played to date as much as I love HZD.
