Sony kills Xbox One -where now for MS

    it's the Xbox One. of course it's a game console. defending principles for principles' sake is ridiculous. just make your stand and don't buy it. that's how you protect your principles. teaching your children your beliefs is how you protect your principles.

    going from one rooftop to another shouting how people need to be educated is not the way to do it. you overestimate the importance of the Xbox One. it will not mean the death of anything. it's one device among many devices on the market. it will not destroy the planet. it will not turn us all into communists. it will not destroy the personal computing world. consoles are a drop in the bucket in the grand scheme of things. You look at the Wii, 360, and PS3 this generation and they sold a combined 260 million over 8 YEARS. 330 million PCs are sold YEARLY. It's really not that big of a deal. Most of the world moves along not knowing a console exists.

    are you going to stop eating meat because animals are being cruelly treated? are you going to stop buying personal goods because there are people starving and destitute in the world? are you going to stop using cars because of the pollution they create?

    you create a thread about the Xbox One and say this thread is not about gaming??? there are political forums you can join to talk about the death of consumer rights and how Microsoft is out to destroy you. But because you hate Microsoft, you have to create a thread that you yourself said is not about gaming but rather a principle that you feel you must act upon. have you seen how many hate threads you've created lately? what happened to computing and helping people fix their problems?

    Microsoft is doing? You should open your eyes to the real world because everyone is doing it and have been doing it for years. Sorry to inform you but you are 15+ years too late in your quest to steer people away from Big Brother. The only way you won't be part of it is to unplug.

    Hi there
    Simple answer to the thread

    Look at what the Market feels about Ms -- stocks at 52 week (or near) high in spite of recent falls in the Market. Sony has been in TERRIBLE of late and is STILL leaking money at a prodigious rate -- only its Movie tie up are keeping it afloat. Nobody even buys SONY TV's anymore - Samsung etc have taken over that market - and the Walkman and Minidisc died a long time ago. Had it been a US corporation it would have died a long time ago or been taken over.


    I'd rather base my sentiments on what the Market feels rather than on some people who seem to think that whatever Ms does / makes / tries to do it's all hopeless.

    Have a look at the chart (enc). Look also at the ATR (Average true range).

    This isn't a graph of a company in trouble. !!!

    Cheers

    Hi there
    Yes of Course it will just for Games just as a Pickup will clobber a Ferrari when you need it for hunking loads of gear around.

    However the XBOX is much more useful for OTHER THINGS too and that's where it will score as it's not a purely 100% gaming device.

    If I were even remotely interested in gaming which I'm not (unless I'm in a Casino) I'd certainly choose the Sony over the Xbox - but for other things as an Entertainment centre, and a competant SERVER too I'd go for the Xbox.

    Fashions change -- when the Sony games for the PS4 get tired and stale and the device old the XBOX will still be working just fine in the roles I've mentioned.

    Cheers

    You might as well tell MS they are 15 yrs too late in their scroogled campaign against Google practices.

    MS are being called names for doing that.

    Maybe you could suggest they just not use Google services and shut up and go away.

    It sure looks like Xbox one competitors are pouncing hard HOPE M$ looses. This story is similar to the Xbox a take it or leave it attitude.
