Don mattrick apologizes for the xbox one being a failure and not meeting to their customers standards.
omg! he really admits it, about time.
There are times when, as a businessman, you’ve gotta admit to your mistakes and failures. The next step after that is learning from your mistakes and planning to do better in the future. Just like anything else in life, what doesn’t kill you makes you stronger.
I’m sure Microsoft will bounce back in about 3 or 4 years with a bigger and better video game console, just as long as they realize exactly what went wrong. (*cough*tv*cough*, *cough*superduperpiracyparanoia*cough*) I’d happily buy it.
Until then, let’s see what the gaming market does with a cable box equipped with mandatory (possible) spyware, lol. I’m excited to see what the hacking culture does with it.
The Xbox One seems like one of the biggest commercial failures, on par with that “New Coke” thing in the 80s that lead to the return of Coca-Cola Classic. In this situation, Sony is Pepsi and Microsoft won’t have it as easy as Coke. This could be very detrimental to the corporation unless they start pulling production and make major changes to the console.
Huh, I’m honestly surprised at how sincere he was about it. Guess they finally learned to swallow their pride.
