PSXE Poll Update: Most Expect "Nothing Special" From New Xbox
The new Xbox will be unveiled on May 21 but the majority of our readers aren't too excited.
Granted, we're a PlayStation-oriented website, but we also have a well-rounded community that simply loves video games. Therefore, asking them if they're interested in a new game system (regardless of the manufacturer) is a perfectly legitimate question.
However, perhaps due to the assortment of less-than-encouraging rumors floating around, the vast majority of those polled aren't expecting anything special from the Xbox 720. There has been speculation concerning the possibility of manufacturing issues (potentially relating to a launch delay), an extreme emphasis on social media, and the theory that the system simply won't have enough exclusive software. We can't say anything definitively just yet, but we always hope for a gaming console that gamers will love. Besides, competition begets quality, does it not?
This week, it's time to reflect on the recent announcement: Call of Duty: Ghosts. It boasts a new engine, new story and characters, and of course, a new title. Do you expect Infinity Ward to deliver a truly worthwhile first-person shooter experience? Do you think they'll rejuvenate a franchise many have started to call stale? Or are you viewing it as simply another mindless blockbuster that does nothing new?
