The reality is that the original xbox one has always sucked but it hurts people feelings when you point out the obvious, microsoft fucked up and their loyal fanboys also paid the price, it also resulted in sony having no strong competition in the console space for years.

The only console microsoft really got right was the xbox one X but it came too late and was too expensive.

Looks like microsoft may have screwed up again with the series X given the fact that they refused to show any next-gen gameplay and in assassins creed valhalla it ended up losing to PS5, this is probably due to worse hardware that only look good on paper

The xbox one disaster
Microsoft had a lot of momentum after their relatively successful xbox 360 (except for RROD) but the proceeded to ruin everyting with their xbox one. At launch their console was a complete disaster and they were never really able to recover from that


The fact that millions of people ended up buying it anyway really illustrate how stupid the masses are.



Sony understand that people are stupid which is why they focus on things like games you can only play on playstation and fast loading times (PS5), they never really focused on power in their marketing even when they were ahead on that front for years.

xbox one X came too late (1 year after PS4 pro) and was prices at 500$ (100$ more than PS4 pro at launch), why should you use that over PC?

Sony consoles have been the worse since ps3 though. Xbox 360 was the best console ever made, I used mine for five hours a day for about six years straight and never got RROD, only Sony fanboys complained about RROD, but the disc drive breaking down and no longer opening is what killed by xbox 360, atleast xbox one has good backwards compatibility, but the upcoming xbox series X are going to be better than xbox one for sure, MS is focusing on games more now.

So your console failed and you still think it's the best thing ever because it didn't fail in the most common fashion?

No their backwards compatibility isn't that great since it's on a game by game basis instead of general support.

Sony could do something better for PS5 if they really wanted, the PS5 is powerful enough to emulate all PS3 games. You can already emulate PS3 games well on PC.

Bonus: they dropped support for the kinect completely, if you buy one for an xbox one S or later you cannot actually plug it in, for a while they sold an adapter for 140$.
