"At least I know how to reveal a console"
Yeah but you don't

In fact it isn't even really the console that was bad, but rather the reveal. They were to vague on too many things which led to speculation. And the speculation was negative (even though there were no real ground for it). The console itself could be great or terrible, but being vague about the gaming aspect was a very bad idea.

but this show wasnt about just the xbox one. they just happened to b revealing it. microsoft is far bigger than the xbox and most of the people there werent there for tha gaming. sellin the all in one to the non gamers was a good strategy. when E3 comes around then theywill blow the gamers out of the water

So we meet again. The bad press will already have turned a lot of people off. E3 is going to have to be great otherwise the Xbox One is screwed. Plus not very many non-gamers would be watching the reveal, which makes it kind of pointless to target them in the reveal. And what show wasn't about the Xbox One?

the event that the xbox one was revealed at was not specificly for the xbox one it was a general microsoft event. and the non gamers who watched it were the people actually there

But they shouldn't have bothered targeting the non-gamers with the reveal because the non-gamers aren't going to buy it and the gamers, if they don't watch it live, will be youtubeing it.

do you realize that most of the ps3s early sales were for the bluray player? the amount of people saying they wanted a bluray player so they might as well get the ps3 for the kids was astonishing. the wii and ds were succsesfull because the target wasnt the people they already know are going to buy it. it was the people who werent. expanding your audience increases revenue which all companies want

So, here's my only issue with that. I watched the xbox one reveal like the next day. I remember nothing of it. That alone means they did it wrong because it didn't really make an impression. The only thing I know about the xbox one is it has a stupid name because the xbox one should be that system that came out first in the xbox series

xbox "all in" one? its the all in one console. and you spaced out because the focus wasnt on games which E3 is for
User avatar #36 to #35 - alexstraza (05/28/2013) [-]
I didn't "space out" because the focus wasn't on games. That makes it sound like I do nothing but game and care about nothing but games O.o?

thats been your entire point. that the reveal focused too much on the tv aspect and the non gaming functions of the console
User avatar #39 to #37 - alexstraza (05/28/2013) [-]
Actually my point was it was stupid to target solely the non-gamers.

well at a show with predominately non gamers attending it makes more sense. and they werent only marketing to non gamers. while they didnt blow their load before the actual gaming show they basicly said these are just a few of what will be on the one. which are very high selling franchises.
