Just a heads up to everyone, Xbox One pre-orders are back up starting tomorrow (10/9) at GameStop.

Not trying to start anything here, just wanted to spread the word.

Target mails Xbox One early, new images and details

Quote:
Twiter user Moonlightswami received his Xbox One pre-order from Target two weeks ahead of release. He has since been sharing details and screen captures from the next-generation Xbox.
Quote:
Moonlightswami’s console has since been banned. But his purchase was a legal one. Xbox LIVE’s Major Nelson has reached out to Moonlightswami on Twitter hoping to rectify the situation, and promised that “whatever happened, it will not be permanent. I can say that with 100 percent certainty.”

Lucky dude preordered late, got his console early and is now invited to the launch event, gets his swag bag, gets his twitter and youtube followers up. Not like being banned from online means much when only 150 xbones are out in the wild lol...

and whoever did the fuck up @ target probably lost their job.

I can tell ya that we got screwed here in Target Canada. Had to spend the entire day explaining to the six people who lined up that it still hadn't been delivered. Poor chaps visited about 3-5 times during the day to check.

Is that a feature, or it's chewing the disc?

Not really. It's 1 milion "worldwide" (my country don't have even release date) vs 1 milion in US and Canada.

Considering NA region consist of majority of Xbox market share, I don't think they are too far behind PS4 in terms of day 1 sales eventhough the reported number is for worldwide. All in all, it's good for consumers to have both console in close competition.

Nope, the UK is in there as well and that was a big country for the 360.

However Microsoft has shown some great logistics as well. I'm impressed.

Due to the way the two consoles were released, we can't compare their sales as of now. What we do want to know is this:

1. How much % of USA market has each side managed to capture, AFTER supplies become plentiful and everyone can get one if they want to. (USA is the MS stronghold, so anything less than 51% of the market would be a blow to Microsoft.)

and
2. The tactic to release in selected European countries for XB1 before PS4 was an attempt to recapture Europe and to hold on to existing lead in the UK. This is an uphill battle, and MS would be happy to get a share increase. Sony would be after the UK market, but we will see how their supplies hold up by that point.

That's pretty much it. Funny that most people don't even bother talking about Japan anymore.

I think point 1 is a bit too early to tell currently as early adopters are more often than not, the core gamers or tech geeks. We'll probably have to wait a year or two and see how the rest of the market reacts to both system.

As for Japan, a lot of focus is on mobile gaming these days. Console market seems to be stagnant/shrinking there. Also, it's pretty much a given for Sony, there's little harm for them to redirect early shipment to NA region early on to try and recapture that market.

It's simple why Japan doesn't really get talked about anymore. Back when the original XBox came out we had Nintendo and Sony in the running (and Sega had just bowed out of the race). Now, two generations latter Nintendo has all but conceded the home console market and Microsoft is a non-entity in Japan leaving Sony free to completely take over the market.

IMHO Nintendo should have waited until 2014 to release their console. It would be a perfect time to catch Sony with their pants down in it's home turf and get back in the race... that is if Nintendo was actually interested in being in the race in the first place (my opinion is they're not, they want to be to the other console makers like Apple is to the other PC/Cellphone makers)

Has nothing to do with that, the way it's going it will be a miracle if Sony sell 5 million Ps4s in Japan this gen. Which is N64 numbers. The Wii was a massive success story in Japan and still got completely outsold by the PSP.

PSX - 19.3 million
Saturn - 5.8 million
N64- 5.54 million
total - 30.64 million

PS2 - 23.18 million
Gamecube - 4 million
Dreamcast - 2.25 million
XBOX - 0.5 million
total - 29.93 million

Wii - 12.75 million
ps3 - 9.6 million
360 - 1.65 million
total - 24 million

Wii U is a flop, ps4 won't get near ps3 numbers, heck 3ds won't get near ds numbers and the vita is no comp compared to the psp.

In america otoh....

PSX - 39 million
N64 - 20 million
Saturn - 1.83 million
total - 60.83

PS2 - 53.65
XBOX - 15.77
Gamecube - 12.55
Dreamcast - 3.9
total - 85.87

Wii - 44.95
360 - 44.86
PS3 - 27.45
total - 117.26

Market keeps getting stronger, plus they got their asses kicked last gen, Japan becoming irrelevant for consoles plus the need to win America is why no one talks about Japan anymore.

Apparently, don't swear on the Xbox One, not even in private skype calls otherwise you'll get banned.

Of course! Big Brother dislikes his little siblings using naughty words.

That's pretty fucking crazy. Cause even the most friendly and non trollish people online often cuss like sailors. Trolling/flaming I can understand, but cussing about things in general is a time honored tradition during online play.

It also tells you that nothing is sacred and big brother (Microshaft) is listening/watching, ALWAYS



...but if, IF I ever get a "the ONE" it will be after a significant re-tool of the console (like a Version 2 or 3) and a drop in price (still looks pretty sexy tho).

People will just have to change how they talk for XBox One.

Brosef 1: So me and Jasmine had a talk last night. It lasted all flogging night.
Brosef 2: Yeah, dude, what was it about?
Brosef 1: She says maybe we should see other people...
Brosef 2: Oh poopey! Dude, what are you going to do?
Brosef 1: I don't flogging know...
