Its no secret that the Playstation 4 has emerged on top in the Next Gen console war so far and theres many reasons for that which I will go into later, but whats in store for the Xbox One for the future?
If the Xbox One is to make any sort of comeback then there will need to be some changes that will leave early adopters of Microsoft's Next Gen console out of pocket and angry.
The first major thing that will need to happen is a bundle without the Kinect which will lower the price of the console by a whopping $100 and bringing it the same price bracket as the PS4.
Will MS ditch the Kinect? Well the whole console is kind of built around the Kinect functions, the hand and voice gestures which make navigating its clumsy dashboard a little easier. Is it 100% necessary? Actually no it isn't at all necessary and could easily be replaced by Smartglass which is a much cheaper alternative to the Kinect.
Of course I can imagine that MS would much rather ditch the Blueray player in favor of the Kinect to try and bring build costs down and along with it retail cost of the machine, however this isn't an ideal scenario.
So lets imagine for a minute that MS decide to ship the Xbox One without a Kinect and lower the price to compete with Sony's next gen console, will that be enough to win back gamers? No....
There is still the issue with the machines power and lower resolution which is an important factor to any gamer. So will there be hardware changes to improve the power output of the machine, if so that means early adopters of the Xbox One will be left with almost worthless machines.
I don't know what the future holds for the Xbox One, all I do know for certain is that something needs to change before the gap becomes too big in the console war.
I would be interested to hear your opinions on what you think needs to be changed or will change below:
