    Microsoft has already lost next gen

    Some of the most watched topics for hardware enthusiasts over the past few years is what will happen to the next generation of consoles. The answer to that is now pretty clear, as is the winner, but we told you that over a year ago.


    GDC this year made one thing clear, Sony wins the next generation console race, period. This came as a bit of a surprise, but the real shock was that Microsoft didnít even show up to the fight. No, we are not joking, Sony made a gaming console in the PS4, Microsoft made all the wrong moves to counter with the XBox 720. What you end up with are two very different products, one with a purpose, the other without. Microsoft didnít try this round.


    Time and time again at GDC developers who had both consoles praised the job Sony had done with the PS4. There were several demos run on the PS4 dev kits too, the author saw at least one dev kit directly and knows of a few more at the show. XBox 720 kits were as absent as the praise directed at Microsoft, some devs even mocked the hardware Redmond is offering.


    With a little bit of knowledge about the hardware one thing became very clear, why this happened was not actually a technical problem. Microsoft didnít screw up, Microsoft didnít misjudge the market, and Microsoft didnít botch the design, they got exactly what they were aiming for. Anyone who has been following the company of late may see an eerie similarity to the rest of their business, management is so out of touch with customers that they donít understand what to make anymore.


    Lets take a look at what is coming and what it means. This will give you a good idea about why each party made the choices they did as well as why we are declaring a winner. Non-technical miscalculations can have clear traces in the tech itself, and those fingerprints can be quite easy to read.

    This! Exactly this!

    A winner can't be announced yet as they haven't even pulled up to the start line yet. Speculation will be just that.
    Be polite, be professional, but have a plan to kill everybody you meet.

    Wow.

    We are still possibly weeks away before we "may" even find out what the new Xbox is packed with, let alone capable of. Lets also remember that the most powerful console does NOT win a console war. Look at the Wii.

    8 years and counting!

    Would be the first time they came last but next gen could be anyone's. I doubt Nintendo will win though, they seem to be going after the gamer instead of the casual again so I see the Wii U doing N64ish sales LTD.

    Was this article even worth the 30 seconds it took to post? Talk about a waste of time.

    Oh, and here I thought this was going to be about that article where that developer up and outed the next Xbox as weak-sauce. Oh well, I'll wait for someone else to post that. I've been the whipping boy on this forum too long to do it.

    Nintendo already took off but judging from the reception it may have been a false start.

    Hm on GAF it sounds more that everyone is awaiting a megaton announcement from MS. Super-hyper-3D-virtual googles, Petaflops performance, X360 SoC for full BC, full access from any Win8 tablet/mobile device, "Minority Report" Kinect 2.0 interface and so on. Wonder what MS really have at their sleeves. Better it blow some minds or this generation is over before it began.
