How is it doomed? It will do just fine, even right now it is still doing quite well in pre-orders. And having many 360 owners switching would have happened either way, so I don't understand why you would even think that matters.
Man, lots of silly doom and gloom in here.
More than likely COD will be 900p on X1, which is more than likely due to MS's immature dev tools than hardware deficiencies.
Folks need to calm down, breathe in through the nostrils and out the mouth, take the dog for a walk, kiss a baby, and come back in and get ready for some great gaming on both PS4 and X1.
I understand what you are saying. But the only fact we have here is Sony made a reveal.
The reasoning behind WHY MS didnt make a reveal is all speculation. And people are taking that speculation to heart. They are making their decisions based on the speculation and second hand knowledge of someone who can type on a keyboard and nothing else. A freind of a freind who made a post on a website type of thing.
Lets say I heard the news that a freind was hospitalized on the channel 10 news. They said because it was probably over a money dispute. I would not hold onto WHY he is there but just the fact that he is in hospital. If I want to find out why I can ask him when I see him.
what I mean to say is base your needs on the facts and that is all.
That is why I am not rushing to buy a X1 or PS4 when they come out. I plan on giving it 6 months to year to work all the major kinks out of each one before deciding.
well if the latest "rumor" that the xbl online services are fubared is true there's gonna be a lot of really unhappy gamers in a few weeks.
Its a sad state of affairs when people expect something not to work straight from the box correctly nowadays
I expected the first day of GTA online to be screwed up. Never got my hopes up. After about 4 or 5 days sure I got pissed.
The first few days of ghost I expect the same thing.
I wouldn't be surprised if BF4 will play at 720p on XB1. It's having a lot of problems on PC and I'm glad I didn't pre-order it. It's getting less than 5 frames per second or less and their fans were defending it during the beta saying things like it will be fixed by launch. It didn't and it currently plays even worse. If BF4 don't get better soon on PC then it might turn out to be like MoH:WF.
Go to their forums and see for yourselves. BF4 plays like crap on PC.
