Xbox One in Japan will Coordinate Your Clothes, Teach You Golf and Deliver Your Pizza

Microsoft Japan released a list of the Xbox One apps which will be available at the console’s launch on September 4th. Many of them are similar to the western versions of the console, but some are rather peculiar, and definitely very specific to the Japanese market.

  • Internet Explorer
  • WEAR
  • Xbox Video
  • Xbox Fitness
  • Karaoke@DAM
  • GoPro
  • J.League Video Archives
  • Skype
  • Tani Masaki Golf Academy (Tentative Name)
  • TED
  • Demae-Can
  • Twitch
  • Nico Nico (Tentative Name)
  • Machinima
  • U.M.U Your Local Idol Walker
  • Rakuten Group App (Tentative Name)
  • Rakuten SHOWTIME for Xbox One
  • OneDrive

WEAR is a fashion coordination app, it includes most popular brands of clothing and accessories and is compatible with Kinect.

Karaoke@DAM is bound to the popular Club DAM Karaoke chain, and it features over 100,000 songs. It’s also compatible with Kinect and allows you to post your videos via the “Dam Friends” service.

The J.League Video Archives include videos of Japanese soccer since 1993, including the best goals and content on Japanese players in overseas teams.

Tani Masaki Golf Academy also supports Kinect, and will basically give users golf lessons and help them learn the correct form without moving from home. Golf in Japan is actually quite a lot more popular than many think, and in Tokyo there are several indoors golf facilities. There has even been a period in which having golf gloves tan lines on your hands was considered quite “en vogue.”

Demae-Can is the app of one of Japan’s most popular home delivery portals, including 11,482 shops that can deliver pizza and all kinds of cousine. It includes information like menus and delivery times.

U.M.U Your Local Idol Walker is an app dedicated to “gotochi Idols,” which are a peculiarly Japanese kind of celebrities strongly localized in a certain area or neighborhood. The app will provide exclusive videos and gossip information.

Rakuten SHOWTIME is a video service, while the Rakuten Group App promises comfortable online shopping directly from the TV screen.

During a recent press conference, the local Xbox head Takashi Izumi mentioned that Microsoft selected apps that could help improve the users’ lifestyle. I’m not sure if those listed above hit quite that mark, but some are definitely interesting.

    Xbox – I ordered 6 XL Pepperoni Pizzas.
    Me – why 6?
    Xbox – You have not stated how many you wanted sir.

      Xbox, off.

  • Lelouch Vi Britannia

    Forget it, even if I lived in Japan I wouldn’t buy this console. No thanx Microsoft.

    • Nick Motsarsky

      Good for you. Thanks for sharing.

      /s

  • GigaGaia

    This doesn’t sell everywhere else in the world, so this is clearly not gonna sell in Japan either.

    • Nick Motsarsky

      RIght. PS4 selling 9 million = OMG CRAZY SALES !!! XB1 selling 5 million = WOW NOT SELLING FLOP !!!!

      Go away, troll.

      • Kingdom17

        Perhaps, but there is some truth to his word, the PS4 and Wii U are selling rather poorly in their home country as is, while its outselling the Xbox One in some of its main markets, so I don’t see the Xbox One doing wonderfully, but it would be nice if it did. Then we would have more competition in Japan, more Dev attention then maybe, and then more Japanese games on the consoles,

        • JustGaming

          More Japanese games = on my radar. But I have a feeling that PS4 will still get more like Bloodborne, Let it Die etc….

      • Wargreymon559 .

        PS4 sales=Sold to consumers

        XBone sales=Shipped

        learn the difference clown

        • Not_true

          Those are both shipped numbers, PS4 is not 9 million to consumers yet.

          • GameDev345

            Actually 9 million is not confirmed shipped number for the PS4, even that 5 million Xbox One shipped is pretty iffy in my opinion

          • Not_true

            That 9 million number isn’t confirmed by anyone at Sony, but it makes sense as a shipped number.

          • Wargreymon559 .

            Well I;m guessing they wanna save it for Gamescom.In August and announce it.

          • Creed

            You said it’s not confirmed by anyone from Sony yet you’re stating it’s 9 million “Shipped” as if it was fact.

          • superkarma

            If the 9 million figure is to be believed (hasn’t been officially confirmed by Sony yet) it’s sold to consumers, not shipped. The report that has been making the rounds suggest PS4 hit 9 million sold, while the X1 is at 5 million sold.

          • Not_true

            It’s very unlikely or impossible they’re at 9 million sold to consumers right now. PS4 sales have slowed down over the last 3 months.

      • Not_true

        PS4 is about 8.3 million sold to consumers, Xbox about 4.5 million.

        You’re talking about numbers shipped to stores and warehouses.

      • Negi Springfield

        Learn the differences about Shipped to Retailers and Sold to Consumers.

        PS4 = Sold to Consumer

        Xbox One = Sold to Retailers.

        • Nick Motsarsky

          Who cares? I play games, not sales. Nor do I own stock in MS or Sony.

          • MTM2

            Higher sales on a platform will result in higher dev support which will equal more games.

            If you don’t understand the link between install base and number of games, just look at the Vita and the Wii U vs the PS2.

          • Nick Motsarsky

            Sure, if one platform is seriously tanking and the other succeeding. Except both the Xbox and PS4 are doing well, so nobody is going to not bring a game to xbox because of a low install base.

          • MTM2

            It’s too early to tell, but with a near double install base on the PS4 already the PS4 does look safer in regards to consistent dev support.

            You’ll see less 3rd party exclusives on the X1 vs PS4 etc and as the install base of PS4 grows MS won’t be able to ‘buy’ exclusives since they’d have to match the potential sales on the PS4 which would be huge.

          • Nick Motsarsky

            MS won’t be able to buy exclusives? Uh, sure they will. They have the money to do so, regardless of their install base. Btw, the PS2 sold what, 4 times the amount the original Xbox did? Yet the Xbox still got versions of all the games, and typically better ones.

          • MTM2

            “MS won’t be able to buy exclusives? Uh, sure they will. They have the money to do so”

            MS may be worth a lot of money but they only do so because they’re not stupid with it, they’re only going to throw as much money towards a product as they can make back in profit. As the install base for PS4 grows prospective sales will grow, making exclusivity costs higher. As soon as exclusivity costs > potential revenue from HW and licensing boosts, MS (nor any sane company) will bother.

            MS are in this for profit, not for the heck of it.

            And no, PS2 had significantly more games 3870 vs 999

            http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_PlayStation_2_games

            http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_Xbox_games

          • Not_true

            Xbox does not have access to all of MS’s money, they’re given a budget by shareholders and expected to turn a profit. MS shareholders aren’t going to throw endless billions into the Xbox brand that shows little or no sign of turning a profit. Which is why Xbox recently laid off 20 Rare staff despite MS having “a lot of money”.

            Exclusives will be more expensive for MS to buy with its smaller install base.

            AAA multiplatform games regularly sell 2:1 in favor of PS4.

            We saw how well buying Titanfall worked out. EA was especially pleased.

          • Negi Springfield

            Uhh , I think that won`t be happening for too long , Microsoft is all about money , About profits , They wanted the Xbox Division gone , The newly promoted CEO and their candidate CEO`s , Their investors or shareholders wanted it gone seeing as it haven`t made any profits.. From what I have heard they been losing 2 – 2.5 Billion every year on Xbox Division..

            Also , No , The Original Xbox didn`t get all of the games , Not to mention , Didn`t the Original Xbox came out one – two years later after the launch of PS2 ? So how is that game version comparison fair when they had a lot of time to improve on their hardware ?

          • Not_true

            OG Xbox lost billions, 360 made some profit but not nearly enough to cover the OG Xbox loss. Xbox One looks like a net loss.

            The entire Xbox division is likely in a net loss right now with Xbox One currently adding to those losses.

          • GG

            Sony Corporation is a net loss

          • They Call Me Senpai

            Still a multi-million dollar company with assets somewhere in the trillions.

          • doplerradar

            A small amount of share holders wanted to spin off Xbox. It is a minority voice. The CEO said it won’t happen.

          • Michael Norris

            Just because the Xbox brand is owned by MS does not give them all of the company assets.If the Xbox brand loses a lot of money MS will get rid of it.MS is a smart company,products that lose them money get killed point and case Zune.

          • Gabriel Ortiz

            The OG xbox only lived for 2 years, then the 360 came…OG Xbox was deon on arrival.

          • doplerradar

            2 years? It came out in 2001. The 360 came out in 2005. That is 4 years.

          • Gabriel Ortiz

            Only “Lived” 2 years only got good games the first two years then it died when they revealed the xbox 360 in E3.

          • doplerradar

            Halo 2 came out in 2004. That was 3 years into the console’s life. It was the best selling game for Xbox and built Xbox Live. Halo 2 was the must have game on Xbox.

          • Gabriel Ortiz

            Oh wow one game in 2004 that will surely keep gamers entertained.

          • Not_true

            Xbox One needs a sales surge or it’s going to end up selling less than 360.

          • doplerradar

            Are we talking about Japan or world wide. If world wide, then the Xbox One so far is doing better than the 360 was at the same length of its life cycle according to Microsoft.

          • Negi Springfield

            Umm , I care..

            Cause more sales equals more games coming to that specific platform….

          • Nick Motsarsky

            Nobody is bypassing the xbox because it sold half of what the ps4 did. So now you don’t have to worry anymore and don’t need to play sales.

          • Not_true

            Considering PS4 has basically twice as many games as Xbox One? I doubt that.

          • GG

            What games exactly? Right now the Xbox1 has more, unless you’re counting those bargain bin indies.

          • They Call Me Senpai

            Sorry, but you’re wrong. The PS4 has more games with or without those indie games you’re so envious of.

          • GG

            And those games are?…

          • Gabriel Ortiz

            See No Man Sky for example…and other games coming only to PS4 they by passed xbox one with ease.

          • Not_true

            You’re here talking about sales, you care. If you don’t care, leave, otherwise you’re a hypocrite.

      • MTM2

        near 2:1 sales is a substantial difference mate…

        The numbers may be small, but the differences are indicative of the market division which will grow in the future. When we’re sitting at 30mil vs 60 mil then it’ll look a lot different.

        • doplerradar

          It still doesn’t mean a failure. Has nobody learned from the PS3 example? It is still early in the cycle and anything can happen.

          • MTM2

            For sure, but keep in mind the PS3 had a more global presence which supported them for the difficult early years, it had a bigger following in EU and JPN than the 360/X1 has.

            As it stands the X1 is relying mainly on US sales which may be enough for good sales but not great. I doubt we’ll see a PS3 level turn around (where the final sales are pretty much equal between the competitors) but it’ll do okay.

          • Boerewors

            I noticed back when the 360 launched lots of gamers couldn’t wait for the ps3 to come out and bought a 360. But the moment the ps3 started to gain momentum after a price drop and some nice bundles, lots of 360 owners traded in their Xbox for ps3s or bought a second console, because their heart was at Playstation. Now the tables are turned, especially in countries like the UK. Xbox has got a huge fanbase there, but the PS4 seemed like a better choice for lots of 360 owners. But I’m positive that as soon as the master chief collection gets released those people will regret their decision immediately, regardless of what PS is offering. People who have been heavily invested in Halo and Gears for so long, will have a tough time really switching sides, although it seemed the most logical choice in the beginning. It’s almost like the love for your football club; times might get rough, but because of your history with the club you don’t switch sides even if another team is better and playing more attractive football.

          • Not_true

            Xbox One doesn’t have the advantages PS3 did to recover in global sales.

            360 still outsold PS3 in the USA LTD.

          • DLConspiracy//

            With exclusives. They are gonna follow PS history just like PS will follow Xboxs success. These boxes get in your home and infect your wallet with digital (minimal overhead) purchases. That’s the name of these little money machines. Both Sony and MS know that.

          • Not_true

            We’ll see what kind of exclusives they can come up with.

        • Nick Motsarsky

          So, if in the end the PS4 sells 150 million and the X1 sells 75 million, will that be a failure for MS? Will publishers NOT bring games to the xbox? Seriously doubt it..

          • MTM2

            To be honest neither are going to break 100 million, the market is different now (tablet, mobile gaming etc)

            Say PS4 hits 80 and the X1 reaches 40, as while I don’t think devs will ignore the X1, Sony will have more influence on the market and the devs will focus more on catering to the higher PS demographic. It’s just sane business, you spend more time pleasing the larger demographic (exclusive content etc)

          • DLConspiracy//

            Or you grow both sides and make more money. That’s what I would do especially if I was a 3rd party plat.

          • Not_true

            AAA multiplats will continue to be published to both platforms.

            Just don’t expect as many 3rd party exclusives anymore. If anything AAA games will continue going MORE multiplatform than less.

          • DLConspiracy//

            I don’t see how Xbox will slow down. I think they realize what it takes to get peoples attention. I expect them to put money behind their business. Simply because they can and won’t go down on their back.

          • Not_true

            Imo MS will increase their 1st parties not buy more 3rd party exclusives. Phil Spencer himself said he wants MS to own more of the IPs they fund.

          • DLConspiracy//

            Yeah I think the 3rd party exclusive content will still be there, but for now they are doing 3rd party game exclusives till things pick up. It will be an interesting back and forth thing.

          • Not_true

            Neither of them will break 100 million.

            Xbox One will still get big AAA multiplatform games, just not as many exclusives.

      Xbox one was selling at 500 dollars what make you think they cant close the gap at 400 hundred.

      • Not_true

        The $400 SKU has done very little for Xbox One sales.

        • doplerradar

          Do you have any proof of this? We haven’t received June’s numbers yet. Or are you saying that because you hope it is true.

          • MTM2

            Just looking at the leaderboards for online console sales, they’re highly indicative of the performance of a product.

            Look at Amazon best sellers, a huge supplier of electronics in the US and the new X1 SKU is sitting at 55 vs the PS4 at 8.

          • https://www.facebook.com/TheGamingAlcoholic The Gaming Alcoholic

            Whew. Looking at the numbers now. Things just aren’t looking good. Thirteen countries that barely want it. I just can’t see the rest of the world feeling any differently.

      • Negi Springfield

        Also , Don`t talk about ” Bu-bu-but PS4 is available on more countries / territories than the Xbox One ! That ain`t fair !! ” When the PS4 is dominating the countries / territories that the Xbox One IS IN…. Including their home-turf , America.

        • Vious

          I think it’s more along the lines that the xbox would’ve had a bigger number not that it would be besting the ps4. just that the lead wouldn’t be that much.

          • Negi Springfield

            So what you`re saying is that if Xbox One is in the same amount of country or territories as the PS4 , The gap would not be that big ?

            I don`t think so….

          • Vious

            I think the gap would be much smaller. the ps4 launched at cheaper price along with gamer mindshare so it’s a must it would be selling more. couple that with more 4x more selling markets. I mean only a dense person would think that those aren’t playing a huge factor in this.

          • superkarma

            The price difference isn’t a valid argument. You seem to be forgetting all the retailer price cuts and bundles the X1 got for many months to help push sales along.

            The markets the X1 isn’t in yet are called “Tier 2 markets” for a reason. They’re less important. Microsoft expects less sales from them, relative to “Tier 1 markets”. They expect less focus in those markets in general. Microsoft launched in the 13 most important countries/regions they felt were best for their audience. Would X1 sales be higher if they were in the same amount of countries as the PS4? Of course…but enough to consider it a “huge factor” in low sales? No, absolutely not.

            Find a better argument, because the price and amount of countries certainly isn’t a valid one.

          • Not_true

            The 13 countries Xbox One launched in already account for ~90% of 360’s sales. Remaining countries will be 10% at best, but probably less since it’s launching late, more expensive, and less global appeal than the 360 had. I estimate the % of sales from non-launch countries around 4-5% per month at best.

            Xbox is ALREADY AVAILABLE in pretty much every European country as a grey market import. They’re stacked on the shelves of “unlaunched” European countries. That leaves Asia, South America, Middle East, and African countries, and even some of those those countries have Xbox Ones already available in stores as imports.

            These markets for Xbox are so tiny they might as well be rounding errors. In other words, barely enough to move the global needle, let alone keep it from tracking under the 360 shipped numbers.

            September’s “launch” will arrive with all the sales force of a wet fart. PS4 will still outsell Xbox One globally in September and basically every other month.

          • superkarma

            Considering the PS4 hit 1 million sales in 24 hours for only North America, while it took the X1 13 countries to hit that number…I think it’s a safe assumption that the lead would still be that much.

            Factor in that the Playstation brand is widely more popular than Xbox in those other regions. But sure, I guess if it helps you sleep better at night…

        • superkarma

          They won’t be able to use the “more countries” argument for much longer, because X1 hits 29 new countries in September. That brings the X1 to 42 countries overall, while PS4 is at 57. I suppose that’ll be their next argument…”the PS4 is in 15 more countries!”.

          • Vious

            26 more markets + 13 launched counties. that’s still a significant more. the generation has a long time to go.
            all I want is games, features and app with excellent experiences on my xbox and I hope all xbox fans and consumers can enjoy their console.

            “Hats off to Sony, they’ve had a great start; they have been in more countries and – to date, at least – at a lower price. We have announced a new Xbox One at a lower price; we go to 29 new countries starting in September.” — Phil Harrison

            29 + 13 = 42
            57 – 42 = 15

            I linked THE official news website for the xbox console. Microsoft’s own website. not from a blogger. in this day and age I will take official numbers over what a blogger posts. simply.

          • superkarma

            And I linked an actual interview with Phil Harrison. Are you saying Phil is lying now? That “blogger” just reposted what the Edge magazine printed. It’s pretty straight forward. But hey, if you want to call Phil Harrison a liar, be my guest.

          • Not_true

            The $400 SKU seems to have done very little for Xbox sales.

            Tier 2 countries will do very little for Xbox sales.

            Again you’re grasping at straws, just like Titanfall, or E3 2014, or any of those entries on the chalkboard that failed to do much for Xbox sales.

            26 more markets + 13 launched counties. that’s still a significant more. the generation has a long time to go.
            all I want is games, features and app with excellent experiences on my xbox and I hope all xbox fans and consumers can enjoy their console.

          • superkarma

            Yeah, you already posted that, you pathetic troll. I already proved you wrong, so it’s pretty amusing how you’re still going on about it. Just be the pathetic troll that you are and run away once proved wrong. We already know you refuse to admit it when you’re wrong.

          • Vious

            I reposted because stupid people like you doesn’t like to hear the truth so you flag my comment.
            run away? fool, I have other things to do than post on dualshockers unlike you.

          • superkarma

            I’m fine with hearing the truth. Apparently, you’re not…since you’re saying Phil Harrison is a liar. Like I said, that’s fine by me.

          • Vious

          The latest VG Charts suggest that Xbox One may have taken back America. We won’t know for sure until June sale numbers are in to be sure.

          • Not_true

            VGChartz claimed Xbox One outsold PS4 in the USA in Feb, March, AND April. They were WRONG each time when the NPDs came in and had to adjust their numbers.

            VGC has a long history of overtracking Xbox One and undertracking PS4, then being forced to make adjustments.

            Also VGC has PS4 outselling Xbox One in June in the USA right now.

        • Vious

          I think it’s more along the lines that the xbox would’ve had a bigger number not that it would be besting the ps4. just that the lead wouldn’t be that much.

    • Not_true

      It will sell, but only as much as the 360 did (or worse).

      • JustGaming

        I think their purchase of Nokia has helped there, most of this sounds like something I expect to we on mobiles. Interesting, but time will tell if his works for them or not.

    cool apps. xbox Japanese consumers should get a healthy dose of apps and games along with great features from the console.

  • Raian K.

    The Japanese love stuff like this, I’m sure it’ll peak interest but in the end software will make or break the Xbox.

  • They Call Me Senpai

    Not sure how well the Japanese will take to these, but we’ll see.

    • GameDev345

      how they will take it? It apps, it is niether bad or good, you get similar functional apps on the Xbox One, that are also on mobile and tablets

      Apps shouldn’t be a selling point, games and having the better exclusive titles and better hardware to run the game will be the main selling point in a game console

      • They Call Me Senpai

        You’d be surprised at what people consider a selling point, so my point still stands.

        • GameDev345

          I actually would be, the Japanese love their mobiles and tablet platforms, and if they have similar apps there, why would similar apps on a console meant for games be a selling point?!

          One very standout app for instance for the PS4 is the playroom in Japan, they use it in their streams a lot, you can;t find that app anywhere else, I would give an app like that an exception, but these?? I would be shocked if there was appeal

      • spid3r6

        Right like the Wii controller was not a selling point for the Japanese.

        • GameDev345

          Wii controller is an app and avaliable for mobile and tablets?? :O

          I never knew that

  • Raptor150

    What the hell?

  • Porcu Peth

    seriously

  • https://www.facebook.com/TheGamingAlcoholic The Gaming Alcoholic

    The Japanese know not what they ask for from the Roku One. They will realize its horrors in time.

  • Kingdom17

    I’m sorry, but this just seems silly. Although using your consoles to order a pizza is… I don’t know… I might have used it. (Yes I’m lazy)

    • Vious

      nothing lazy about that. I order pizza from my phone (app) or computer, i’d probably use it on the xbox too.

    • DLConspiracy//

      I’ve ordered pizza online. Nothing wrong with that. You can take your time and get your order right.

    • https://www.facebook.com/TheGamingAlcoholic The Gaming Alcoholic

      The pizza app will surely run smooth and look great. 1080p without a hitch!

      It’s those pesky bothersome games that keep getting in the way of the Xbox One being the premier video streaming device/app hub. They really should just do away with them altogether.

  • Guest

    lol… WEAR

  • DLConspiracy//

    Well looks like Xbox wins in Japan?? I don’t know, but then again. I don’t really know the Japanese market or culture since I don’t live there.

  • spid3r6

    They need to drop that Papa Johns app stateside!!

    • Vious

      ha, waiting on that app myself. not sure what’s taking papa johns so long with it

    • MTM2

      I’m always on the fence about Papa Johns, I’m sure the pizzas are great but the first one local to me moved into a building that used to be a morgue, always suspicious of their storage freezer’s past…

      • Negi Springfield

        No offense , But Papa Johns sucks.. ( In my opinion ) Domino`s Pizza`s are good.

        • MTM2

          I love dominos but it’s crazy expensive in the UK, for one decent medium it’s like $25

          • BlackestNight63

            Damn. I don’t blame you for not getting Dominos that often for that price.

          • Negi Springfield

            Well , I can agree on that one… It`s much expensive here…

            That $25 price is for the small size , $35-40 for medium and $50-60 for large : same goes for Pizza Hut.

          • Kingdom17

            50 to 60 for a dang pizza? O.o wth Where we get ours is a small chain and its about 25 for a large two topping.

  • Paul Burns

    Xbox One has still to release in a lot of territories, PS4 has released in Japan, Xbox One hasn’t more exclusives! more exclusive content! more features! the tide is already beginning to turn! I have both Xbox One and PS4, far happier with the Xbox One, Greatness Awaits! The Last of Us, Little Big Planet and Drive Club Sony’s exclusives for this year, Wow! so Amazing! sarcasm!

    • superkarma

      Brand new trolling account. Wow! So surprising! Sarcasm!

      • Paul Burns

        The truth can sting! thanks for the reply!

        • They Call Me Senpai

          It does sting, that’s why you’re so angry.

        • https://www.facebook.com/TheGamingAlcoholic The Gaming Alcoholic

          Those numbers have to sting the most. Bronze medal. A pat on the head and a participation medal.

          “That’s a good Roku One. At least you tried!”

    • They Call Me Senpai

      Japan won’t help, the Xbone has more timed content, less exclusives, same number of features and the tides aren’t turning anytime soon. As for the PS4’s exclusives for this year, you’re right about them being amazing, Sony couldn’t have a better lineup if they tried – at least until next year.

      And of course you’re happier with your Xbox, you’ve never experienced the PS4. Now stop trying to troll and go to bed, it’s way past your curfew.

    • https://www.facebook.com/TheGamingAlcoholic The Gaming Alcoholic

      Pinning your hopes on four stale Halo games after Sunset Overdrive gets ignored and forgotten faster than Titanfall? Dreading the nightmare scenario that it won’t outsell the Wii U by the end of next year? More gimped multi-platform titles that will lack in visual fidelity as well as exclusive content? An abandoned peripheral that is still connected to 4.5 million Xbox Ones like a blood sucking leech? A video steaming device that only dreamed it was a gaming console as it plays catch up month after month to its superior predecessor?

      Oh yeah. That tide is turning all right. To the tune of about 4 million behind. Class dismissed.

      • Paul Burns

        This isn’t a sprint it’s a marathon! i’ll let you in on a little secret, I own a PS4 too! i look at all the information given out by both Microsoft and Sony, i’ve given an opinion, when Destiny and Arkham Knight come out i’ll buy them on PS4, but most of my games will be bought on Xbox One, it has most of the exclusive content for the multi platform titles, one of the benefits of having both systems is that you get to choose the best of both! we will see what happens over the next year! the graphics of the Xbox One have also been boosted, so the games will look beautiful on both systems! i expect the sales margin will close! Xbox One will advertise there exclusive content for big selling titles from September onwards and you have more features on the system! i am looking forward to playing The Last of Us next month! :) no lessons needed and no more replies!

        • https://www.facebook.com/TheGamingAlcoholic The Gaming Alcoholic

          I’ll let you in on a secret. I only own an Xbox One! I just haven’t guzzled down the Kool-Aid regarding it in the copious amounts that you have.

          It is one hell of a great Netflix/Hulu machine though. Top notch. Spared no expense.

            I never mentioned Titanfall! i wanted to identify if you are full of it or just a troll, it seems you are just a troll! i won’t comment again! i have been sucked into taking part in this! it won’t happen again! happy trolling! I’ve lost a little bit of hope for humanity after this! even more so when i see what I’ve been wasting my time with!

            So. We have both proven what we owned and yet the cure for cancer has still eluded us and thus marks the stalemate. This was fun though. You’re a lot snarkier than Vious, and more fun to trade quips with.

            And yes, you did get suckered into it. So as far as I’m concerned. Mission accomplished. Welcome to Dualshockers.

    Sony, is like “wish we thought of that”! HAhahhaaaa, now they rush to copy! Sorry, but Sony hasn’t innovated in a long time, main reason they are dying as a hardware company.

            Troll would entail he has some sort of overall agenda, and we’ve all clearly witnessed that he’s not that capable. He’s just the toy that’s tossed about from owner to owner at Dualshockers.

    Microsoft should invest in R&D and make a foreign language learner app for the console. It’s my understanding that Japan values bilingual speakers, especially English speakers.

    Give these people tools they can value culturally. That’s where you start M$. Am I right guys/gals?
