5 Things That Microsoft Needs In Order To Make Their Next Xbox Console A Success

2:10 PM

Microsoft is reportedly going to announce two new Xbox consoles at E3 2019. Yes, two new Xbox consoles codenamed “Lockhart” and “Anaconda“.

With these two new Xbox consoles expected to be announced this June, BusinessInsider published a report that talks about what Microsoft needs to do with their new Xbox console if they want to compete with Sony.

The thing is, Sony technically “won” the recent console war with their PS4 as they sold over 91.6 million units as of December 31, 2018. But of course, some may disagree and point out that it’s not all about unit sales.

So what does Microsoft need to do?

Microsoft Needs Is More Major Exclusive Games

In terms of exclusive games, the PS4 has more. Just to mention what Sony has, they have Uncharted, Bloodborne, Spider-Man and God of War.

Fortunately, Microsoft has reportedly been buying studios. In fact, back in November 2018, word came out that Microsoft started writing blank checks to their game studios so that they can make game titles of their “wildest dreams”.

Backward Compatibility

This is just something that every console owner wants. There’s no denying it. So Microsoft definitely must add this feature.

Different Console Options: Low Priced To High Priced

Thankfully, there are two new Xbox consoles to be announced at E3 2019. They are “Lockhart” and “Anaconda”. The former will be the cheaper one while the latter will be the more expensive one.

A Continued Push Into Cross-Platform Play

As noted by BusinessInsider, Microsoft has been a trailblazer in the so-called “cross-platform” gaming. The company did it first with Minecraft and then Fortnite, and so far things have been rather positive. Hopefully, they will continue to push this.

It Needs To Be Easy To Use?

BusinessInsider pointed out that compared to the PS4, the Xbox One is a muddy, slow, old-feeling game console. Just simply navigating the user interface is already a chore.

Now, some may disagree with what the report said which is understandable. Nevertheless, the most important thing is that hopefully the new Xbox consoles will at least be far better compared to their predecessors.
