Xbox one is a new innovation game console of Microsoft. Basically, it was announced just this May 21, 2013 with a for release status on November 2013. Xbox one is a tailored console where you can have access to your television or listening to your favorite music while playing games by just the sound of your voice. All in all it is one high-tech, state-of-the-art tool for all your entertainment needs. It is such a powerful tool that it wasn’t an exemption to many criticisms and rumors against the console. It has mixed acceptance, some have great praises while others have raised eyebrows with a questioning look.
Xbox One is not compatible with Xbox 360 so those who are hoping to purchase this console and still would like to connect their old Xbox, this would be improbable. It is also confirmed that Xbox will have improved controller and newly redesigned D-pad. A big news for all fighting gamers. Xbox One will also be a console where you can have your entertainment access such as internet, television, and of course your all-time favorite games. These are all some of the rumors confirmed true by the Microsoft team.
Xbox One will not be allowed offline and for some reason you need to be connected at least within 24 hours of using. This would scare some old users of Xbox since not all people have internet connection and would like to play offline either on different places while on their travel. Also, it requires gamers to pay a fee to reactivate some used games. If this one is true, then most gamers who have purchased Xbox 360 would be devastated. The price to purchase an Xbox is pretty high for a game console and paying additional cash for old games will be a bit too much.
Could It Or Could It Not Succeed?
If the next Xbox requires that much special treatment no one could predict that it would succeed. Video games are already pricey but to pay more in every little thing just to play a mere game would discourage every purchaser of Microsoft. The significance of the price range would have consumers thinking to opt for a less expensive one conforming that there are more options in the market today. Otherwise, Microsoft had undoubtedly given a significant value to the improvement of Xbox that can contribute to its sales.
These rumors that have been popping out could really hurt the success of Xbox One. And most rumors are half true. Microsoft should be aware of what and where its consumers are boiling down. But until these are confirmed, these would remain as a rumor. Still people’s reactions to these rumors are unsettling. Most of them are negative feedbacks and others are whims of a professional gamer. Unless Microsoft launched its newest innovation, these people would certainly bang the company’s door until they figure out the truth.
