    49:26 All these years later, and this line still resonates with me. Nintendo was a non-entity that ended up revolutionizing gaming for an entire era of motion control.

      DerJoltinJoe No buddy. That’s just part of the reason. There are many reasons why. Xbox is just istnt what it used to be. Maybe it’s time to stop being a loyal Xbox fan get the better console of the two. I sure did.

    My favorite Xbox game was by far Halo:Combat Evolved. I know that seems like the cliche thing to say as an Xbox gamer but I had a lot of GREAT memories beating that campaign. I enjoyed every second. Every Xbox has had a great experience for me. Xbox, Xbox 360 and Xbox One.

    Phil, you da man!

    How fast time flies! It was great to have a look back at this podcast episode. The Series X is on the horizon for 2020 and it looks like it’s going to stomp Sony. Once again Nintendo is doing their innovation thing and killing it in the marketplace. Sony really took it to Microsoft this generation with first party games. It got so bad that Microsoft stopped releasing their console sales figures. It seems like Microsoft really likes having the Xbox as a loss on their taxes every year. They do pretty well, but not well enough to really see a big profit.

I was livid when it happened to me, but i got on the phone, a label came the next day, I posted it off and about a week later it came back working fine with a few months free Xbox Gold. I went from livid to anoyed to meh in the space of a month. Still buy xbox.

    Stumbling upon this video was an awesome treat. I have had the honor of having all systems. Growing up here in the Bahamas and so close to America we have been closely linked to the console war as in America.. From catching the bus to my friends house with my huge bag... The only thing my Xbox OG can fit in ... Lugging this monster of a console around . In the Bahamas Sony has a strong footing however... All of my friends who's preference was Ps2 at the time... Was exposed to my Microsoft product... They loved playing the games that only Xbox offered... And although they felt that Sony PlayStation was better than Xbox. They looked forward to me ... Struggling with this bag of brick.. lol. I agree with Phill the eco system needs the balance. I grew up with the balance... I loved Halo on the OG ... Then I fell in love with the controller of the 360.. in my option. It was near perfect.. I loved the Xbox live experience on the 360... Sitting on my console talking to friends around the world in parties... All night talking about games and reviews and movies and life.... We played games also but we talked and distances did not challenge us. My Caribbean accent was accepted and learned. That was my 360 experience. ..
    I being one of the Bahamas biggest Xbox... MICROSOFT SUPPORTER .... didn't rush to get a xbox one then... The news of the " S "came out and I saw it as a sign... The wait was worth it but a few minutes later the Scorpio was announced and I am patiently waiting for my "X"... Humble beginning for a brand and a fan.
