I'll tell you one thing, he probably knows more than any of us on this forum. Know it alls
My problem is that people praise anything good being said and shoot down anything negative. What if he was right? What it the next box does have better tools?
It's one thing saying "oh, I think he wrong for X Y and Z reasons" but "He doesn't know what he is talking about because he has bias and hasn't been in the industry for x years" is just ridiculous. You think those saying the other console don't have bias? 1) guy was in the game industry. unless any of you lot have been there I'm more likely to believe him than any of the keyboard know it alls 2) who's to say he hasn't seen any of what MS is planning?
This isn't about being level headed, it's about not acting like a child when someone says something you disagree with.
it's called bias. it's called preference. bias and preferences drive business. if everyone is so god damn neutral about things then you won't have healthy competition. and don't say you can just buy both consoles. people spend money especially base on bias and preferences.
There's nothing wrong with being biased. Im clearly biased to the PC. however If you're bias is so strong that you can't even accept the negatives of your preferences, you have problems. I love PC gaming over consoles however ill be the first to throw my hands up and say it's not without problems.
If the console does good enough to afford to produce a successor, then your platform of choice will always be there for you to own.
marketplace position dosent matter? last time I check, management of companies care a lot about market shares. bias and preferences drive brand loyalty. brand loyalty is a good hedge against market sentiment an business cycles.
no body cares if brand loyalty is based on reasonable or unreasonable bias. the CEOs certainly don't.
I am not really surprised by these findings. MS is a software company after all.
