DFC Intelligence’s Press Rls

DFC Intelligence released a press release today to report their predictions of next year’s gaming console competition. Playstation 2 leading the pack, with Nintendo’s Gamecube, and Xbox taking second and third places. This is what they had to say about the Xbox...

The greatest area of disagreement was over the outlook for the X-Box, from Microsoft (Nasdaq:MSFT - news). Many respondents hope that a large new entrant like Microsoft will take the game industry to the next level. Other executives came outright and said they thought that the X-Box would be a failure. There was some significant concern about Microsoft’s lack of marketing ability for this type of consumer product. Other respondents were worried about Microsoft’s track record of not getting products right the first time around.

There was also some substantial concern about whether the X-Box and GameCube would actually be released in 2001. Many respondents thought the launch date of one, or both, of these systems may slip to 2002. Even if these products ship in 2001, they may ship in very limited quantities due to manufacturing shortages.
