    If the Xbox One fails, they can still sell the 360.

    PS4 has little to no competition.

    It's not going to fail. It will still do fine, but Sony will definitely sell a lot more units than it. You do not want the xbox one to fail. Competition makes products better.

    PS2 didn't have much competition. Can you remember Sony's arrogance before the PS3 was released? the 360 humbled Sony and it shows. The PS4 wouldn't be as good if it wasn't for the 360 giving it a good run for its money

    Not only was it humiliating, but Microsoft is completely destroying themselves at this point. The extremely negative reception to the Xbox One has not diminished since E3 so MS in effect failed. I honestly cannot wait to see what happens next on this because I can't think of another item or electronic hardware that had this much blow-back and it being as huge as it is. Even if Microsoft folds 100% on all this quick, the damage has been done and I'm not sure how they could recover.

    This is close to what I'm thinking, what might transpire is the Xbox One will be similar to Sony's PSX (not PS1 BTW) and have a larger launch but the public will not be willing to go with it. The One will fade away and the Xbox 360 will just be an extended console that will then also fade years later, lasting around 10 years in total.

    If it stays like this, it will fail. It will be similar to the PS2 era but the Sega Dreamcast will look like it was on fire (in sales) compared to Xbone.

    PS2 did have competition; it's just that everyone forgets the Dreamcast.

    For me, it's no surprise that MS is melting down, starting with the entertainment division. Those antics of Ballmer on stage aren't an act, it is somebody that is undergoing a mental breakdown in progress.

    We should take the high road though and point out how uneven the ratio of value to price the PS4 has. MS says their extra value comes from the cloud (as do unicorns and flying fairies). We don't have the details but Mark Cerny talked about at least two hardware dedicated functions, either on two separate chips or this one multimedia chip. The PS4 has a dedicated input/output processor and a hardware accelerated video compressor/decompressor. The dedicated input/output processor allows background loading even when the console is turned off. He also said the USB will charge with the console off. The hardware video compressor/decompressor could mean a lot more ahead. It's this kind of value contained in a lower priced and better built game system that should be paraded as the reasons for MS to be humiliated further.

    Forbes article ? I don't care about that. Their articles rise and fall with shares of the companies. Less forbes article, bigger gain for gamers.

    Wait until release and when people take it home and it is weaker than ever because of Microsoft's downclocking.

    Everyone who is clinging onto all things Xbox One will be truly upset and my comments in my signature will come to pass!

    Microsoft made all the noob moves, they truly were dumbfounded when Sony had their PS4 reveal in Feb, now Microsoft are rushing and with downclocking rumors, i7 GTX 780 PC's @ E3 and Phil Spencer stating the Xbox One is 3 x more powerful than Xbox 360 on television only to cover his ass on Twitter later...

    It makes me wonder WTF Microsoft are doing? How they have fallen!

    I think that article sums it up perfectly in its last paragraph

    There are many lessons to be learned here, the first and foremost being “listen to your customers.” Sony did, Microsoft didn’t, and the result was nothing short of a gut-wrenching fatality, and a flawless victory for the wiser party.
    A monumental mistake by MS. However, they are now a wounded animal and that's when they are at their most dangerous. I wholly expect them to try and get back on the level playing field, perhaps even over-compensate. We shall see. For me the decision has already been taken - I've pre-ordered my PS4 and I'm more excited than a big bag of excited things!

    I preordered my PS4 as well and am definitely excited. Greatness awaits.

    This is Microsoft we're talking about, over-compensating is impossible for them .
