Is the Xbone doing way too bad, or the Ouya is actually doing well? I didn't think the Ouya would go smoothly, honestly.

France is the only country in Europe where the Wii U is popular. They've always had preferences that don't align well with their neighbors, so it's nothing new. Perhaps not surprising, anime is also a lot more popular in France than any other European country.

It's neither. The Amazon Bestseller list uses an as-yet unknown algorithm of the sales/pre-orders within the last X hours to create its list. The reason why the Xbone was ahead on the video game list over the PS4 SKUs can be attributed to this quirk of the system. A better way to tell how well a product is actually doing would be to look at the yearly bestseller list.

The Xbone's poor performance is likely a result of the overwhelming majority of pre-order buyers having already placed their orders. However, it is a sign that the Xbone's resurgence is just a temporary blip as Microsoft's policy has not fully revived their fortunes as some people may have expected.

Want some more wood for the fire? Here you go: Microsoft: Xbox One advertising will integrate with Kinect @ ArsTechnica

So yes, it is confirmed that the Kinect will be used to show you ads. Microsoft claims that the marketing folks don't have access to as much data as a game developer but they also claim that they hope to release this limitations in the future.

Yeah, I think from now on the only thing I will buy from Microsoft is the affordable low tech laptops and Microsoft Office.

Well, Japan doesn't like the price of the Xbone either.

Although they did remind me that the PS4 is still at $399. The Xbone's price create a illusion that it appears cheaper, but it's still quite a hefty price to spend.

The best part is, as usual, belong to the comment section. There are guys who think Xbone price is at the right place.

Imagine the potential for implying weight problems...

The thing is that 399 is not an absurd amount for a new console. It's pretty high yes but still similar to what a PS2 cost at launch, or the original XBox:

I know, it's just that people keep going on about how PS4 is really cheap, but in reality it's because of the Xbone that people are thinking the PS4 is cheap. It's an alright price for the launch release.

I have to agree with your statement, my MSI gaming laptop cost me 2000 dollars while the PS4 cost 400 dollars and Xbone 500. So while others may think the PS4 and Xbone is expensive, I think it is cheap.

A really awesome console, but you wouldn't have heard of it :hipsterglasses:

Actually all I know about it is that some KOF games my friends love are exclusives for it.

One, the Neo Geo, was basically an arcade machine for the home (you could literaly pick up a cartridge from some arcades and pop it into the system if I'm not mistaken). As you can probably guess it had some great games that came straight from the arcades (The King of Fighters, Metal Slug, Samurai Shodown) but the high price kept it out of the spotlight. In fact there's still a company that is trying to release a version of the system now (NEOGEO X Gold).

The other, the 3DO, was an insanely powerful machine with a price to match. As you can probably guess it didn't do so well in the marketplace.

Neo Geo was my favourite platform for fighting games back in the glorious days of Fatal Fury, Samurai Showdown, Art of Fighting, World Heroes and King of Fighters. Back then, SF2 always felt like the lesser fighting game in comparison to what you can get on Neo Geo.

Not sure if arcades back then uses compatible cartridge or not but Neo Geo started as an arcade company and the console is basically their arcade system shrank down into a home console. Used to rent them at game shop for $3 usd per hour back in the early mid 90s which was still cheaper than putting quarters into an arcade machine.
