    Microsoft: PS4 won’t make us ‘change anything we’ve done with Xbox One’

    Microsoft’s Major Nelson said in an interview recently that Sony’s PS4 console isn’t going to make them change anything about their Xbox One system.

    The PS4 pretty much beat out the Xbox One in positive press this week with it’s lack of used game DRM, lack of 24-hour check-ins, and price tag. When asked if these announcements by Sony will influence Microsoft and make them change what they’re doing with Xbox One he had this to say:

    “I don’t think,… I mean we’re really not going to change anything we’ve done with Xbox One. We’re very happy,… did you see the games on stage during our briefing? Did you see the exclusives? I mean we’re really really proud of the system and the games that are coming out. When you look at games like TitanFall,… have you gone through Titanfall yet? Enough said. Conversation over. We’re really happy with what we showed on stage as well as what we’re showing here in the booth so I think it is uh,… it’s safe to say that we’re confident where we’re going. We’re also confident that gamers are going to love our vision of the future and what we’re going to offer for gaming”

    Nelson seems a bit on the defensive here and I feel sympathy for him. I’ve always liked him personally and his job just got a lot harder with all the controversial policies of the Xbox One.

    Of course, even if Microsoft planned to change something about the Xbox One in response to Sony’s PS4 they wouldn’t make that decision so quickly and wouldn’t admit it was Sony that influenced it. Still, they seem very proud of everything they’re doing with the Xbox One and hopefully when the system releases they tweak a few of their policies for the better.

    So no backpeddling huh...MS is sticking to its guns.
    Enough said. Conversation over. We’re really happy

    MS is in neck high sewage if all the internet talk/preorders indicate how the public receives these 2 consoles. The gamestop in my area is talking down the xbone and persuading clueless folks(those not knowing about xbone policy) to get the ps4. Xbone is getting its ass kicked with preorders in MS's strongest markets;States/UK. If they lose those then it's going to be a long 7 or so years or them.

    About what I expected to hear. They have shown no signs that they are backing down. Oh well. Guess they will have to learn from their mistakes like everyone else. MS is a danger to themselves right now.

    I'm surprised I haven't yet seen an image showing MS digging a grave for the XB1.

    Let's hope Sony won't let this momentum slide away and keep on riding with it

    Wow. Ain't this some $#@!. If they don't make major changes to their gameplan prior to launch, they sure as hell will after launch when their sales numbers tank.


    I don't really need a water cooler/remote control as of right now.

    Why should MS change anything?

    If anything Xbox fans have shown they'll accept anything MS does to them. They eagerly pay for Gold, some even seem to think paying extra is a feature to be proud of. They kept buying 360's all through the RROD debacle, many of them claiming the whole time it wasn't even a big deal. They signed up to buy Kinect in record numbers. MS has a lot of reasons to think Xbox fans will just grin and bare it, then sign on like they always have. Every other time MS has had a hard time and the fans have been cranky they weathered it and things went back to normal, Xbox fans have memories like goldfish. By the time Christmas comes around MS will probably be pretty confident than everything will be back to normal, and the sales will follow.

    The only thing that will get MS to change their minds is if sales don't happen. Negativity isn't enough, it has to be concrete. And it will probably be more than a couple months before they accept it, since the eager earlier adopters who will accept anything MS dishes out will buy everything they can at first.

    Ok, so for those hopeful (i.e. me) that DRM etc will be repealed - no go.

    We won't know that, or whatever other options they include, or not, until it's released.

    I bet that if their sales sucks, they surely will do it.

    Just look at Windows 8.1 bringing back the start button (but not start menu) and boot to desktop.

    Unless they're so prideful that they drop out of the console race entirely... but that would be stupid because competition breeds innovation. Nintendo isn't really competition, so that wouldn't be a fallback. O_o

    If the reports of PS4's clear graphical advantage on 3rd party titles are true, MS is going to have to change $#@! real quick or its bye bye. You can't offer consumers a less powerful, more expensive, restrictive machine and hope to do well.

    Sony wont make them change anything, consumers will. If consumers have the same attitude the had with the ps3 early on, MS will not only change its price, but there is a high chance that they may well change a good number of their policies.

    Unfortunately, consumers aren't usually aware how much power they have. MS would def change their policies if their console flops.
