In my very humble opinion, the death knell may be starting to ring for the ill conceived Xbox One.
I find that very hard to believe mate. They'll be absolutely fine. I'm sure there are plenty of people (myself included) that have the Xbox One firmly in there sights as a future purchase :D

If you start joining our Mario Kart 8 races on Friday nights it'll make you forget all about picking up an Xbox One. ;)

Who knows what'll eventually happen but there's undoubtedly trouble in Microsoftland if they're lowering the price of the XB1 just before the official start of the holiday shopping season here in the States.

Smart move by MS, the best thing to do will be try to get as many consoles in homes before the holiday season, therefore increasing holiday purchases by people purchasing the system their friends already own.

I suspect that Halo: The Master Chief Collection hasn't sparked the kind of excitement that Microsoft had hoped for. My friend at Gamestop tells me that the new Call of Duty game and Super Smash Bros. Wii U are both doing much better with respect to presales.

@Grizz, unless my Wii U decides to let me play online then unfortunately that won't be happening. I really don't know what's going on with it. Just can never find a game in any region. Tried when it came out but to no avail, only a couple of games before it never let me play online again ;_;

That's terrible! Have you tried it recently? Big N patched the thing a bunch of times to make MK8 online less dodgy (and it worked AFAIK). One more try?

Sounds like an issue with your wireless router. Have you checked your firewall settings?

Maybe fellow countryman Boomdiers can help you get everything set up if the issue turns out to be related to your ISP.

Back on topic: The Xbox One may be a good console but here in the U.S. many gamers are choosing to go with the PS4 instead. Sony's console is more powerful so it's the better choice for discriminating gamers. Nintendo realizes this and that's why they're relying on the strength of their first-party titles to carry them through this holidays.

Somebody forgot to tell Microsoft that Master Chief and Halo are played out and that the Halo franchise doesn't have the power to make people run out and buy a XB1. Most FPS fans have pretty much moved on to the COD games and even they seem pretty stale now.

It was enough to make me buy the X1 over the PS4. I havent regretted my decision to by the X1 over the PS4 yet although I do plan to buy the PS4 at some point.

My apologies, buddy1983. My intention was not to offend but to discuss the Xbox One's price drop with respect to its implications on the broader video game market.

I played the heck out of Halo 2 back in the day and still consider it a landmark game. I bought my Xbox 360 primarily to play Halo 3, however, I didn't care much for Halo 4 and its attempt to become more like the newer Call of Duty titles. If I want to play COD I'll buy COD.

:D no offence taken. Just saying that halo does still have draw, probably not what it did have though. Halo 4 was the weakest in the series in my opinion and I cant wait to play Halo 2 in HD.

By the way the title i'm mainly buying a PS4 for is Uncharted.

Not at launch but eventually. The benefits for 360 and original Xbox games were the final thing that sold me.

I'm wondering if the release of the Xbox One X will drive down the price of used S models? :huh:

Here's a review of the just released Xbox One X.



Seems like a very slick console but since I don't own a 4k TV I'll just keep playing on what I've already got. With a PS4, Wii U, Raspberry Pi and original Wii all connected I obviously have a HUGE backlog of games to work through before I pick up another console. :lol:
