    Xbox founder says he could kill Xbox, Playstation, and Wii U with Apple TV

    Xbox founder says he could kill “Xbox, Playstation, and Wii U” with Apple TV

    February 14th, 2013


    Was forwarded an article by a long time reader about how one of the original Xbox founder stated that Apple TV gaming could just right out kill Xbox, Playstation, and Wii U.

    Well I don’t know about Playstation (That’s my personal opinion not the Founder, he still thinks apple tv can defeat them all). But, I could definitely see Apple taking down Xbox and Wii U easily. When Apple wants something it gets it. Remember iPods guys. They weren’t the first to the market they just were the best at marketing in the market.

    This article goes on to state the only reason Xbox is doing so well is because Nintendo and Sony have had some pretty big blunders. I agree with this wholeheartedly. Remember PSN being down for weeks a year or so ago, because someone hacked their $#@!ty security?

    Microsoft definitely makes it difficult for independent developers to develop for their system. It’s next to impossible to make money, that’s why all the indies are flocking to platforms like steam (That’s another company I sincerely believe could revolutionize console gaming). In fact steam is coming out with a console last I checked. Now that could change the

    industry. My brother is a developer and tried with a team to make a game of Xbox Live, it didn’t work out. They ended up changing their game plan and are going to try to be published on steam.

    I can’t look anywhere these days without someone playing a game on their iOS device. Hell I’m even playing 4 pictures 1 word right now with my wife. This casual gaming environment is going to do nothing but become stronger and stronger, and Apple is great at exploiting the casual environment. Honestly, Apple will make their killing on the female

    demographic. I’ve spent 120 in games the last month for Xbox and Playstation respectively. My wife has bought 10 games for a grand total of 79.80. In fact, I borrow her iPhone to play some of these games.


    What’s everyone’s thoughts on this? Because, I personally think Apple could do it if it became something they wanted to set their sights on.

    there's almost a 200m market for wii,ps,xbox. He can go $#@! himself and so can any other developer thinking in line with him.

    Destiny and Middle Earth: Shadow of Mordor is all I need for the rest of the year.

    yeh games like that are fun but for like 2 days? I get so bored of games on my phone that have hardly any re playability, start off cheap but always ask for more money to get rid of adverts or advance further in the game.

    i'll stick with consoles thanks

    Does this person really expect me the give up games like: Assassins Creed, Far Cry 3, Heavy Rain, God of War 3, Dishonored, etc.
    For: A new version of Angry Birds on an iphone...weeee! Yay!

    I don't think so and you need your head examined.

    Focus. Control. Conviction. Resolve. A true ace lacks none of these attributes. Nothing can deter you from the task at hand except your own fears. This is your sky.

    This is a terribly written article with very little thought behind it.

    Why on earth would this guy say apple TV. It's already pretty known that IBM if they wanted to could bring Apple right down in the gutter as well as costing Microsoft right now billions of dollars if they sued over patents.

    Well if anything I do see the steam console putting heat on other consoles as the graphics card can be upgraded. Unless these new consoles can do the same (I doubt it)

    If Apple is so dominating then why on earth does Android have a bigger market share than iOS now? Now that their precious Jobs is gone that company is going to tank just like it did last time...

    http://bgr.com/2012/06/06/smartphone...ows-phone-idc/

    If there is any company out there that they need to watch it is Google...if Google enters the home console business then $#@! is going to get real!
