    Peter Molyneux: Microsoft "won" this console generation

    Peter Molyneux: Microsoft "won" this console generation, is no longer competing with Sony and Nintendo

    Good old Peter Molyneux, never a man at a loss for a bold claim. Mere hours from Microsoft's next gen Xbox event, Lionhead's old boss has told the BBC that Xbox 360 is the big winner this generation. Moreover, Molyneux argues that the manufacturer no longer competes principally with Sony and Nintendo - it's taking on broad entertainment hardware companies such as Apple, Google and Samsung.
    Molyneux's not too blown away by what he knows of next generation consoles. "2013 is proving to be the year of the console hardware refresh," he began. "Although it's exciting, it's not nearly as exciting as when the Xbox 360 exploded onto the gaming scene just over seven years ago.

    "Back then, the 360 represented a huge leap forward in gaming, with a tangible increase in performance and fantastic multiplayer support. Gamers and game-makers were justifiably super-excited.

    "Now it is that time again, but the world has changed. Tablet, mobile PC and smartphone makers are refreshing their hardware on what feels like almost a weekly basis. And on the horizon looms Valve with its PC-based Steam Box. Thereby hangs the problem for Microsoft: how to justify its new console, how to get us all excited.



    "Its competition is no longer Sony and Nintendo, but rather Apple, Google and Samsung. Rightfully, Microsoft can claim it won the last console generation. However, it has always targeted the living room as the big prize. That's why it packed the 360 with an array of "living room" features to try to persuade us that the machine could be a mix of set-top box, internet music streamer and Facebook

    browser."
    Having quit Microsoft in March 2012, Molyneux would like the next Xbox to put the focus back on videogames. "When I used to work at Microsoft the key phrase that I used to hear bandied around was the next Xbox should be "input one" on people's living room screen. Nowadays I'm an independent designer and I just want the next Xbox to be a great gaming machine
    .

    "It should have great connectivity, so I can play spectacular games with my friends and be sold at a reasonable price, perhaps around $300 (£200). That should be Microsoft's goal rather than persisting in trying to make it a box for everyone." He's made similar comments to Edge in the recent past.

    Pretty obvious who won really, from third place last gen to first place this gen + they made the most money, just too bad 95% of the games on the platform were shovelware.

    The whole presentation felt like Microsoft was really talking to Apple. Not Sony. Not Gamers. Less than 15 minutes out of an hour on games, everything else was how Siri should be applied to TV. It was kind of a joke really, if you where hoping for a gaming platform. Sure the tech is slick, and might get more use than games do, but I'm a gamer first and foremost, I'm not burning my whole bandwidth on sports.

    I would OVERALL agree, simply because they did at the end hurt SONY's dominance and basically ended it, that is pretty damn amazing if you ask me.


    PS3 may out sell the 360 with TLOU,GT6 and beyond coming, but the damage is done basically.

    They have a great opportunity with XBOX ONE ( the reveal was crap, but E3 is were the games will be no doubt, just hope most are NOT kinect games)

    Molyneux doesn't even know what PS+ is. He said he'd be disappointed if the new Xbox wasn't built primarily for gaming and looked disappointed afterwards but don't expect any negative Xbox soundbites from him. Or Cliffy Bellend either for that matter.

    ?

    MS systematically won over Sony. They came out with innovative OS design and services. Were it not for the decline of their focus on games at the end, they would've kept going. Sony definitely owned up to their mistakes and made a lot of things better but they definitely failed in the first half of the generation. [

    MS didn't just do better than before, they actually kept a behemoth off them until the end. that's fair play. It was the kick Sony needed to better themselves.

    I guess it all depends on the definition of win. MS did give sony a good butt kicking though. It certainly woke them up.

    Lmao! Both ended up with about the same worldwide userbase. Some territories favored MS some Sony. Hardly a "buttkicking."

    Overall yes but MS beat the $#@! out of Sony for the first few years. I'd say up until 2009. yes, sales-wise PS3 was still catching up but the momentum was with MS for a good while.

    it's interesting to look back and think, wow, both Sony and MS were quiet about their issues and the reason why is because both knew what their overall goal was to begin with.

    MS' didn't give a $#@! that their in-house area was lacking as time went on, since they knew their goal was for going more for entertainment, social media sort...whereas Sony's was to "we-gonna-fix-all-this-$#@!-from-OS-point-of-view" so they didn't give a $#@! that people wanted the PS3 to have all those Live features and kept chugging along.

    bottom-line, both $#@!ed up hard.

    Both companies MS and SONY, had their pro's and con's

    So i do not think one won over thee other. Just had the right amount of fans that enjoyed the respective console of which they chose to enjoy
