Interesting to see in retrospect their bizarre focus on Television just when streaming services like Netflix were starting to dominate the market. By 2018 I don't think television is even relevant anymore yet MS tried to make it the focus of Xbox at the expense of gaming. Call of Duty is still strong but has taken quite the fall from grace. The TV shows teased never eventuated. Kinect was a catastrophy that made no dent on the Nintendo marketshare.

Right now I think Xbox is the objectively best console but unfortunately most people have already invested into the Sony Playstation ecosystem and outside of consoles Microsoft are getting eaten alive by Apple, Valve and Google. They flubbed it at the worst possible moment, all they had to do was stay the course and they would have beaten Sony but now after billions spent they're in a bad position.To top this all off consoles themselves will probably be replaced by game streaming boxes in the near future and Apple, Valve and Google are far better positioned to take advantage of that new market.

At this point they should just slap Windows 10 on Xbox One and sell it as a dual gaming/PC device before it's too late.

I had to stop taking anything you said seriously at this point and didn't read the rest.

What was the last time you reevaluted your life?

I suggest you look into that.

https://nypost.com/2015/03/13/tv-ratings-see-double-digit-declines-for-fifth-straight-month/

"Commercial ratings — the viewing “currency” that determines what advertisers pay for TV time — cratered across broadcast and cable networks, marking the fifth straight month of double-digit declines for the industry.

“It’s clear the downward spiral in TV ratings continues with no end in sight,” media analyst Michael Nathanson wrote in a research note on Friday.

Overall prime-time broadcast network ratings were off 12 percent last month compared to a year ago, while cable networks dropped 11 percent, according to his report."

The funniest part of it is that M$ fanboys now talk about how much the Xbone has improved. But back then during the Xbone reveal, they defended all of the s***ty aspects of the Xbone to the death.

Hypocrite M$ fanboys want to have it both ways, and they're flip flopping just as much as Phil Spinster, if not more LOL!!!


Flip flopping? You mean like how you and the other $ony zealots have been bragging about performance for the past few years, but now that doesn't matter ever since the X came out? The X has ruined you and many more $ony hypocrite's lives. LOL!!!
more proof the mods here are anti MS fanboys
