Hey HQer's,

I was just thinking about my Xbox experiences over the years and I have come to the conclusion that Xbox no matter what version you talk about since becoming a system has always copped it pretty harshly yet ends up way on top.

For example the first Xbox was considered a hideous huge boxy thing with a controller that only a person with giant hands could get around and it was said there were too many buttons and it was all too confusing, big and cumbersome.
Yet with all this said did surprisingly well in the marketplace.

The Xbox 360 again was majorly criticized for all sorts of issues including the dreaded "Red Ring Of Death" however they did not get much flack about the styling this time as they seemed to get it spot on in a lot of peoples minds.
Yet again sold incredibly.

Now to the Xbox One this console has been copping it from well before the release with nasty rumours, the looks of it, internet, information ideas, kinect and other apparent issues.
So with all this negativity again flying around will this console again fly Xbox again into the sky and beyond only time will tell but if history repeats itself Xbox seems to be again ready to smell success.

The big question is how do they do it...?

They learn from familiar yes but my grudge against them is their design, look at the 360 slim it was a beautiful console, compact and looked sleek.

I get that this is considered their first X1 phat console but still it's the next gen gaming and it looks as if they used cheap plastic material, same with ps4.

Sales will increase if they take away drm and make security features more optional.

Yeah but it took how long for this to happen I believe it was around the half way point or more of the consoles life I'm sure they will have a slim console sometime in the future but realistically the console isn't that big.

Here is a picture of the Xbox One with a pen next to it.


While the PS4 looks about the same size but looks a lot deeper (front to back)

The ps4 does look chunkier yes, but have you seen the new 360 design? it looks like a beauty.

XBOX1 didnt do very good in sales l0l. They got destroyed by the PS2. And when XBOX sales picked up it mysteriously coincides with the release NKPatcher. Everybody I know who bought one wasnt for the games etc it was so they could jack it. The area the PS2 has always sucked at.

XBOX-24 million consoles sold
PS2-155 million consoles sold.

So yeah XBOX1 did terrible.

nah nah you can't compare those numbers the ps2 was in market way before the xbox. I remember the first war was dreamcast vs ps2

as for the new 360 it looks like the xbox one, how can you like one and hate the other

I like the front rounded design better it's like someone saying they like the galaxy s4 design over the s3.

Also Xbox original consoles got stopped being made how many years ago now and the PS2 is still being made to this day even had a game release at e3 of Fifa 14. So don't think the numbers really can be worked with on the PS2.

woah they released the ps4 and still the ps2 games are coming out? lol thats cool, wonder if they will support the ps3 like that.

i think the ps3 will be the xbox OG of retro this time round.


i was just looking up ps3 wikipedia has it at 77 million sold january 2013 estimate, 360 77.2 million april 2013 estimate.

so id say the ps3 was more successful this time going by just that detail, they are more expensive more reliable, less time on the market.

so ps2 outsold abox ps3 will catch up to bbox and ps4 will smoke the cbox.
