Xbone touting a 2014 "Product of the Year" win http://j.mp/OGRkgS I guess TV was a bigger innovation than I thought, who knew

I think I am shocked and surprised. But not really, that was the way they were going. Gaming isn't as big as watching TV.

All while the PS4 has sold 4.2 million units...

Haha, microsoft wishes. Smells like padded numbers to me

THis is from a survey of 45,000 people right,  I think all in America and would be your typical cross section of society.  So for the Wii buyers, quite possible that the XBox One is attractive.  Unlike the Wii though, the XBox One is being sold at a lost, so unless there is regular software sold on top then could end up being bad for MSFT.  Same for SONY as well.  More importantly is where are the gamers going.

Then again maybe I am just full of it and have no idea. Actually I think the later is true.

The size of the sample doesn't matter nearly as much as your selection criteria, which is simply just parade magazine readership. 

On the issue of number though, microsoft has only talked about shipped to retail numbers in an attempt to pad it up, an even THOSE numbers are over a million behind PS4's sold to consumers numbers.

How can you have a 2014 product of the year 2 months in :/
Comment by KyussRyn on February 28, 2014 at 1:11am

I guess you gotta take your wins where you can find them Aussie.  But with out re-reading the Article, it could be anticipated or the product you are most wanting to buy in 2014.

What should be concerning is that the console has been suffering by crippling inconsistency where Kinect is concerned and that it's missing functionality that was advertised close to a year ago still. But again it's a weak award from Parade magazine it's like getting your gaming news from the Wall Street Journal.

NBA2K15 Review

The NBA2K series has been one of the most dominant franchises in gaming. While some sports franchises rely on exclusivity deals to corner the market, NBA2K was able to do it the old fashioned way: make a far superior product to your competitor, and force them to close shop. This dominance allowed NBA2K to end the last console generation as the unchallenged king of basketball video games. 2K began the new console generation with another solid entry in the series. While NBA2K14 for the PS4 and…
