The History of the Xbox One: The Good, The Bad, & The Ugly

Prije 20 dana

The near decade-long lifespan of the Xbox One has finally come to a close, well sort of. With the Xbox Series X and the Series S taking over as the new faces of Xbox, it's time to take a look back at the emotional rollercoaster of a ride that the Xbox brand took us on these past years with the Xbox One family.

The Xbox One has an incredible history. Some good, some bad, and some ugly. From the infamous disaster of a reveal in 2012 in the hands of Don Mattrick, to the fantastic 360 pivot they were able to pull off after Phil Spencer was named Head of Xbox, we're going to go over every major (Nelson) moment that defined the Xbox One generation of consoles.

In this video we'll also discuss Microsoft's walk back from the once required Kinect and how the Xbox One's focus on backwards compatibility that almost single handedly turned every thing around for the consoles.

It was an interesting console generation for sure and you can bet that IGN will be there every step of the way in the new stories the Xbox Series X will have to tell us in the coming years. For so much more on Xbox, stick with IGN.

The PS4 video was set up to analyse the successes but mostly focused on its downfalls. This video is the total opposite to that and just goes to show how much western (more specifically American) gaming news sources love to jack off Microsoft and undermine Sony. These low-key biases are absolutely pathetic.

After 20 years of buying exclusive Xbox consoles... The last 7 years of Xbox has made me absolutely hate MS and Xbox. I hate them so fn much I've spent 5 grand on pcs for me and my kids just to get away from them. Recently got my pc and all that's left to do is take my 4 Xboxes and post a video of me smashing the fk out of them with a hammer and set the remaining pieces on fire. Go F yourself Xbox.

The xbox 360 is the best i think than all xbox, because that era, more gaming exclusiv, more game for x360, can handle ps3 n xbox 360 can a accepted of japan people... But when xbox one, is down... I hope xbox s x can strike back again like x360 👍👍👍... Just more game xclusive Microsoft, and more game

TheeLightBearer Prije 13 dana
From the used game debacle, Kinect being forced on people, the expensive price compared to the PS4, along with worse performance than the PS4 is what killed Microsoft’s reputation. Not exclusives; that’s a cheap excuse. Exclusives were the nail in the coffin, not the cause.

Wether they care or not they've lost me on this console..been Xbox since the first release but I've opted for the PS5, my first PS since PS2, this release just seems boring..everything looks and feels exactly the same. The PS5 controller is a game changer if you ask me👌 what i will say it's the smallest gap i think graphically, there isn't a massive change.

I guess it’s true what they say history repeats itself. I’m referring to the first inaugural E3 on may 1995 when Sega made the bone headed move of launching the Sega Saturn immediately without any prep time at $399. Then Sony at their press conference answer to that was a simple $299. Get where I’m going with this people?

It's amazing how Phil's philosophy completely turned xbox around It's incredible how consumer-friendly they've become, offering an incredible number of different ways to play with minimum cost, making people who play on android and pc just as important as those who play on the latest console.

@KingpinSkinnyman there are games like , scorn , the medium that will be available soon in 2021. And it’s really funny cuz you buy new hardware to play your games better and bigger games in the future. Imagine: I’m not buying a 3090 cuz there are no games made for the 3090
Fog Prije 15 dana
@KingpinSkinnyman well first of all Spider-Man , horizon and other games are also coming to PS4 ( they rejected a release of demon souls on any other systems too )
KingpinSkinnyman Prije 15 dana
@Fog true they're selling out... but what games are people playing?... shouldn't have to wait a year for exclusives. I haven't had a playstation since the playstation 2... but I bought a ps5 because of the games the PS4 had. I'm intrigued by so many games on playstation... but none on Xbox. I have a XB1X and don't see a need to get a series X.

The actual hardware never seemed to be the best on the market but usually by the end of the cycle the “package” was. Game pass, backwards compatibility ect if they started a new gen the same way they end it they’d probably win pretty easily. Unfortunately they seem to need to get their arse kicked before they pull the finger out

When they say Xbox was the first of the big 3 to allow cross platform play when they weren’t. Sony was the 1st one to introduce it and the 1st cross platform game was actually final fantasy XI which started before the PS4/Xbox one ear.

@Ayy Lmao those games never made it to ps4 or switch it came to pc later thays how micros9ft do it they do care unless they would of have not waste billions on buying studios I get where your coming from bit their exclusives are also on pc as well some times exculives like rise of the tomb raider and pubg and cup head but most never made it to ps4 or switch only pc sunset overdrive did not get a pc relase until years and years later. They release some amazing exclusives some in my opinion like sunset overdrive tell me why grounded recore dead rising 3. Froza and other games were always going to come out on pc never ps4 or switch only some games got times excusives.

@chuckie the gamer Well they did that the last time too with Sunset Overdrive, Ryse, Dead Rising 3 and Forza Motor Sport 5 all being exclusives or timed exclusives. It wasn’t until a year or two in the generation that we realized just how much they stopped caring about the Xbox in general, the console was practically abandoned for 3 years with terrible half assed ports of third party games (if they even launched on it) until management changed.

Finally, after almost adecade, IGN finally gives the black male a voice on the panel. I never understood that black males play video games moreso than females but despite this, every game has a female lead, every developer is quick to hire only women, and IGN also played a role in this by never acknowledging black males in any panel or capacity. Alas, Akeem has arrived. Lets hope more as qualified and knowledgeable as him continue to join. Well done!
