Xbox 360 was not a success? And to an extent, Xbox One was a success as well. Again, as I mentioned in my previous comment, not saying Sony wont go the same route, but wont be 100% sure until I see it.
Do you also hold that same argument for always-online, bundled Kinect, Xbox-1S without a blu ray drive, or releasing a new gen with two SKUs? What is your basis for saying Microsoft, who came third this generation, is right this time?
