    DICE pissed about Xbox delay

    I see Microsoft seems intent on making it easier and easier to pick #PS4 for Gen4 in Sweden.

    Not sure what @Xbox is thinking when not launching in a progressive country like Sweden, we always buy what is hot and that will be PS4..

    DICE employees have been very vocal about Sony\PS4 in the past few months. MS isn't doing anybody any favors, let alone themselves.

    Well the delays ARE pretty annoying, especially when all those countries that now miss out have tones of customers who have already put money down on the console

    Says the one who isn't affected by the delay... You'd be just as pissed, especially if you already pre-ordered.

    They can always cancel their xbone preorders and use that money to pick up the ps4. Save a few buck in the process too. MS is making it easy for Sony.

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

    I guess that's why Sony is attacking the States and UK out the gates...try harder the next time.

    Like I said before, they really need to. Any advantage they can get they should take. It's gonna be a long console cycle.

    Yep, it's going to be a long, bumpy ride for MS. Especially since they lost all of their advantages that they held last gen(still ended up letting the ps3 catch the 360's sales)...the advantages that matters most.

    Yea, i'm sure MS is very upset at that one. Shame on them, letting them catch up after 7 short years. I'm sure the whole xbox division is just drowning in sorrow....lol

    Nope. They're drowning in PS4 preorders, instead.

    So...Sony now holds the advantages outside of a year head start...MS has a lot of work to do to keep their hold of the states and UK. If sony caught up with the odds against them, it doesn't take one to know rocket science to know what Sony are going to do with the odds in their favor

    I got to leave right now but please do carry on. I'm going to have fun toying with you and your kind today.

    Great, now if only they could spread it to that other device that is struggling, they might be ok.

    Yes, sony holds an early advantage. That's a price advantage. I'm sure MS knows that they are going up against a $100 cheaper competitor. Don't forget, the odds were in their favor last gen too.

    well it just seems to me that everyone involved in the Xbox One is really dorking it. Almost like they are running around with no heads over there.

    Delays are a part of the the business. I can see why people at Dice would be upset. I would be disappointed too. This would affect the sales of the game. They'll get over it as soon as all the money from B4 starts rolling in.

    What? How?

    The PS3 released a significant amount of time after the Xbox 360 and for 100$ more. In addition, the 360 was easier to develop for and had more 'accessible' performance for developers.

    Sony had the advantage in that they won the prior gen before the PS3 and were very popular but that was it.

    Now I won't lie when I say that I think the PS3 was the better overall bargain when you actually started bean counting in terms of features and what it gave you as a technophile, but the average joe? Nope.jpg. Worse online system, more expensive, worse looking launch window\multiplat games.

    In many, many ways this situation has been entirely reversed this time around for the two companies.

    Except that Microsoft did not, in any capacity, enjoy an overwhelming victory THIS gen in the way Sony did in the PS2\Xbox era. Further, Sony didn't royally piss off gamers\press\critics the way MS has done this gen when they were announcing the PS3.

    In short: Microsoft is in trouble.
