Japan is the largest market they're not launching in. Most of the other countries excluded are either small, unprofitable markets or pirate havens.
Its funny how you and the other members of your group have to defend the Xbone all day long, what are you scared off? Your employer not being able to make enough money because not enough people will be buying the Xbone? What is it really? What are your intentions? I really don't get it, its funny really that you guys have to come up with so many excuses to try to get people to join your side. Hey if most people are against what Microsoft is doing then something somewhere went wrong, and it wasn't on the consumer side.
I've actually used the console.
I recognize the misinformation being spread that is fueling a lot of the hate.
I recognize how PRISM has hurt M$ for something they didn't and aren't going to do.
I recognize how incompetent M$'s team is at correcting it.
Both consoles are looking at 8-10 years before their successors, and the second half of that lifespan should favor the Xbox One if it doesn't fail early.
I recognize if the Xbox One fails Dreamcast-style, we're going to end up in the exact same situation we're currently in where PCs are being held back by consoles. With cloud assisted computing, this can be avoided.
Just to state it bluntly,
M$ has the better long-term strategy but it could get screwed up early if the current misinformation isn't corrected.
Microsoft f'd up royally and people are not willing to put up with it, end of story, and if what you're really after is to end the used game market because you or your employer considers them lost sales, then maaaaybe you guys should consider making better games, or find ways for people to keep their games and play them for longer,
So it's impossible to have a great game that doesn't have high replay value? I find very little replay value in Telltale's The Walking Dead, and yet I agree with the consensus that it's an amazing game. KOTOR was a great game, but once you get through the major plot twists, the gameplay is terrible and the replay value low.
Single player games are dying because of this focus on replayability. A lot of great storytelling tools are not conducive to replayability, and that's why you're seeing MP added to single player franchises.
and no I don't mean DLC which we all know most of the time its content that has been removed from the game to be sold later on as an extra.
Ugh, I don't know how many times I've corrected this on OCN. No, it's not. Go through my post history from ~6 weeks ago if you want a longer explanation.
