The player base is TIRED of Halo, Gears, and Forza. You can only milk people for so long, unless you are CoD, and even then, their sales have been declining pretty harshly.

I will NEVER buy the next xbox unless MS comes up with new ideas or better games; just like Nintendo. They came up with a good console, thus, I bought it.

That is why xbox is stuck at 30 or so million sold. Sony is crushing them with ease.

If you can't provide a link supporting the "fact" that "most people" won't buy an xbox again, it sounds like just a bunch of speculation posted as a truth in order to rile people up

I already decided Xbone S will be my final Xbox console.

Halo is meh. Gears 4 sucks. And this system has like 5+ Forza games already. I still have not beat Forza 5 yet. I have enough Forza to last me the next decade.

I am done with Microsoft.

I was done with Nintendo 12 years ago after the horrific Wii.

You have been missing out on many great games for Nintendo consoles if you really have avoided them for 12 years...

FH3's sales are more than FM6 and FH2.

MS gaming revenue reached 4th in the world.

Nintendo gaming revenue reached 11th in the world.

Maybe the mods should start considering to aggregate all this threads into a single one. Kind of redundant at this point.

@mazuiface: I highly doubt it.

I hated NSMB, SMG1&2, Mario Kart Yawn, Hate Zelda, Mario Maker was 15 years too late, Pokemon has sucked after Gold/Silver, Donkey Kong peaked on SNES, Kirby was never good, SSB peaked on GameCube, F Zero/Star Fox always sucked, Pikmin is LOL worthy, Splatoon is a joke....

Then add in all the Wii/Wii u/switch mini game collections....

Yeah, I don’t feel like I missed out on anything at all.

Let me know when nintendo quits the gimmicks and/or gimmick gameplay. Let me know when Nintendo makes normal games with normal controllers. Let me know when Nintendo makes Paper Mario 3...that is identical to the first 2/no gimmicks.

Agreed. I don't see myself ever buying an xbox again until microsoft releases some more compelling games. If anything, i can play them on PC regardless

Disagree. I have all three of the current systems and a "gaming" PC (shitty Alienware Alpha), and I primarily play on my Xbox One. My friends are invested in the Xbox ecosystem and exclusives on other systems won't change that. I am also no where near tired of Forza (FH3 is fucking unreal) or Halo. Gears has always been meh so I'll give you that one :)

I'm not sure that's true. There are people who don't care or know about exclusives (or good games). If they just want to make a stable profit they don't need exclusives. MS is right that making exclusives is risky.

The hell is the point of Scorpio or whatever its called. I cant even remember the name of the new OP Xbox, that says a lot! Most people wont waste 500 to play no games. What does it even do different other than struggle with 4K? The Forza, Halo, Gears thing is so boring now. If they were at least good games like Nintedo with the same old Zelda, Mario and Metroid stuff.. well at least they are good games lol. Note im not a fanboy of any company, i would buy X1 tomorrow if it actually had cool stuff like Horizon or something.

I'm so pumped for the Xb1x to release so we can watch it fail so badly in sales that the lemmings come here to SW spinning a negative as a positive lol. I can see one clues less lemming posting " Xb1x is suppose to fail in sales , that what it was designed to do. It was only made to be the most powerful console ever created "

I also find it funny how excited lemmings are to play the same old floptastic games from the last 3 years again , but only in 4K . It just shows how desperate lems are to play something on the their precious Xb1x lol

Well, I know I'm one of them that won't be buying one without any real reason. I'm not going to go out and buy a 4K TV just to appreciate better graphics on games that I'll never play on it.

I use my PC, Xbone, Switch, and 3DS more than my PS4. Hell i even use my Vita more than the PS4.

My Ps4 gets used about as often as SW gets a thread that isnt shit

I agree, PS4 and Switch at least have games worth owning. My PC already kicks the crap out of the Xbox One X (Scorpio), so why would I even consider this garbage platform for gaming.

Crud, the only reason I have the Xbox One S in the first place, is for the UHD BD Drive as it was cheaper buying a $200 bundle than buying a stand alone player.

@i_p_daily: Some goober necro posted a thread which had already been moderated, and you're after me why? Presumably because because I had a mild argument with you? You're not entitled to information about how other users were moderated. I'll lock it now, like I did with the shitty Google lem-trashing thread earlier, now that it's been bumped
