The worst decisions in gaming history right up there with SEGA. If the console reveal and launch was thought out more deeper then this console may have outdone the PS4. With the Xbox 360 Microsoft were strong sure there was some competition with the PS3 and it's golden exclusives but overall 360 was a success because it had GAMES. The concept of Xbox One wasn't even based of video games but being an "all in one" system. Backwards compat is a huge plus for Xbox One but with the lack of games and no Japanese market as well as the awful bad press from it's inexcusable "used game policy" BS that was scrapped at launch. Microsoft sort of know that they screwed up

I’m enjoying my Xbox so meh. This board is seriously like cancer. At first it was Non stop troll threads and now it’s non stop power comparison threads between the PS4 pro and Xbox One X.

I don’t think selling millions of consoles classes as ‘screwing up’, regardless of competition.

What instantly deterred a lot of people away from the Xbox One is simple... they wanted to release a game system in which you bought a $60+ disc that contained no games on it.

Then you had to pop it in your system, go online and download the game and remain online every 24 hours to use the game. You couldn't sell your games, you couldn't let friends borrow games, you couldn't use your games on a secondary console and you didn't actually own the games you paid for. You simply licensed the rights to use them at the convenience of Microsoft and their digital rights allowance.

You don't have the internet? Oh well, you don't play. Your ISP is having problems that day? Oh well, you don't play. Microsoft takes XBL down for maintenance? Oh well, you didn't check in at the right time, you don't play.

You want to trade it in or give it to a friend or donate it or pawn it on eBay? Can't do any of that. Gotta get Microsoft's permission and return it to one of their approved stores for full MSRP. Know what's worse than buying a $60+ disc with random code on it in place of a game that you have to jump through all those hoops for? Buying a USED one for the same price.

Also, you had to have a Kinect and it had to be on all the time, watching you and listening to your every word, no matter what you do.

THAT is what turned people off from the system. And no matter how much MS tried to get away from that, few people continued to trust them.

That said... I have an Xbox One S and not a PS4, or Switch, nor did I have a Wii U when that was a thing. But I didn't just forget about Microsoft's original intentions either.

Microsoft def had a bad plan and even worse way of presenting it. But they have since made up for most of it. I wouldn't mind them going back the all digital route but they need to present it in a favorable way to the customer. They do still need some new killer exclusives too. I am excited for state of decay and crackdown though.

I am happy with my Xbox One S. So Microsoft did not screw up the Xbox One for me. You're loss, troll.

Also, this.
If you care at all for gaming, you will NEVER support microtransactions or loot boxes.
