man....I am still trying to process how this all happened. I wonder if Microsoft is scrambling to fix this shit show right now. I'm asumming that they are either frantically working to revamp the console right now or....something..
Surely they cant be thinking that this lame duck is favored right now. Its gonna tank hard unless they do something. Fast.
I'm honestly not sure that anyone at Microsoft really cares at the moment. Microsoft was clearly aiming for a specific demographic (for lack of a better term the bro demographic.....and the demographic of non-gamers who like to yell at their television), and they very well may believe that that demographic is not well represented in these polls. So in their minds, I could totally see them thinking "Everything is fine, these people (heathens) just don't understand the glory of our new system. However once the people the system is built for get ahold of it, then everyone will understand the glory."
The question at this point is how their core demographic really is taking all this news. The only person I know who is close to their desired demographics has indicated that he is leaning towards a PS4 at the moment. That is hardly definitive evidence, but it is all I've got at the moment. I really just don't get the logic behind the Xbone strategy, I feel like they are aiming for moderate success with minimal costs, but that they are messing that up and going to fail to get even that.....I really don't know. Only reason I am even paying attention to the Xbone at the moment is that I feel like this is going to be (already is?) one of those instances that will become a marketing text book example some day, and those are always interesting to watch in real time.
