Have you made the crucial decision yet on which next-gen console to buy between the Xbox One or Sony PS4? If you haven’t yet, you’ll be interested to hear about some new thoughts from Microsoft, who boldly claim that their console will start ahead of the PS4 and will go on to remain ahead due to being ‘built for the future’.
It’s obviously not the first time that we have heard Microsoft wax lyrical about their new Xbox One console being ‘future proof’. You may remember a previous article that we wrote, in which Microsoft’s Albert Penello also stated the same thing, to which some consumers were obviously skeptical about.
Now, Microsoft’s director of marketing Craig Flannagan has said in a recent interview that the Xbox One will ‘start ahead of the PS4’. He believes that a better launch lineup is another factor for his reasoning, whilst also putting his head on the line to say that the Xbox One will offer ‘the best experience this Holiday’.
Obviously these kinds of comments are to be expected from a Microsoft director of marketing, but do they still raise a few eyebrows regardless of which platform allegiance you belong to?
Microsoft will need to be a bit careful that they can back up their comments if they are consistently going to market the Xbox One as a console that is ‘future proof’. We would all love to see it after the RROD situation, whilst talk on the Xbox One Cloud does seem very promising, at this early stage.
With just days to go until the launch of both consoles, let us know who you think has the edge. Has the recent drama over resolution changed your mind on the Xbox One or not?
