Xbox Founder - PS4 Wins The Console War 'By A Nose'

Not open for further replies.
I know a few people, including myself, who switched to sony this gen because of the inability to play Xbox 360 games. If MS announces backward compat for digital purchases, that would be a game changer. I have zero interest in buying an Xbox one currently, but if it was announced that I could finally ditch my Xbox 360 because the games could play on xbone? I'd come back.
Dat logic. "I can't play my Xbox 360 games on the Xbox One so I'll switch to PS4 where I won't be able to play my Xbox 360 games."

Although I agree, it would be a game changer were Microsoft ever to come up with a way of doing it.

oh my god these Pinocchio images and other nose gifs are killing me.

There is literally nothing different between a physical and digital copy of a game. They just can't "patch in" backwards compatibility. So what you're asking for is an Xbone with 360 hardware BC, which would raise the price of the console considerably.

Yeah, good luck with that.

Has someone tweeted this thread link back to Ed Fries? I don't support trolling often but this is so funny it has to happen. I don't know how Fries said this with a straight face, it's complete hyperbole when you look at the data.

lol it sucks I know, but I had the idea so I went with it. Maybe someone with actual photoshoping skills can do an actually good one.
Dont sell yourself short. I just shot coffee out of my nose in public.

Yeah but you see it in a lot of places, not just here. Well, at least now I have something to counter if I feel like replying to something like that (as I said, before I wasn't paying much attention to what was coming out on xbox and didn't really care too much about the PS4 exclusives so usually just attributed it to people who didn't care for the PS4 exclusives like me, I buy my consoles for third party mostly. But with that big of a difference, there really is no meat to that argument).
To be fair, I don't think anyone would mind if XB1 fans say "XB1 has the better games" and then explained how they liked Halo and Gears. That's a subjective opinion a person might actually have. The thing is when people trying to defend the XB1 say "PS4 has no games" which is objectively wrong since the PS4 not only has tons of games, but more games compared to XB1.

Even I will freely admit that it is PS4's exclusives that are selling me on the system... Street Fighter V, Guilty Gear Xrd, Persona 5, and Ys 8 are what's selling the system over the XB1 to me.

I was gonna be the cool guy, and make the "Pinocchio's Nose" remark, but then I got beat and slaughtered.

Thank you, NeoGAF.
Yeah that was my first thought when I read the OP but it was open goal and this thread is delivering. :)

But seriously, when are MS' execs gonna learn to keep their mouths shut?

Reminds me of Krazy Kenny during the early PS3 years...

Technically he hasn't been at ms since 2004. Although he did work for them for a long time.

Why are these people allowed to spout nonsense like this without anyone calling them out?

He is free to speculate as much as anyone about this topic.

But you could ask Kyle Orland from ArsTechnica to investigate the likelihood of that speculation to become reality.
