Xbox going nowhere?CNN has put together a rather negative piece regarding the XBOX and just why its going to have a tough start. According to the article some developers are still without final hardware and third party titles arent scheduled to be ready for launch. With quotes such as "I think compared to Nintendo, they have a lot of work to do, the graphics are good, but nothing more than that", it appears that many attendees at E3 were more impressed with Nintendo over the XBOX. Heres a bit more negativity to get your day started off right along with the link to view it all.
The worlds largest independent games software maker, Electronic Arts (EA), announced a timetable extension of its available titles for the Xbox machine.
Most third-party games makers including EA have yet to receive final versions of the Xbox development software, according to a report in the Financial Times on Monday.
The delay could potential threaten Microsofts performance as it takes on Sony and Nintendo during the critical holiday retail season.
Tokyo-based gaming analyst Zachary Liggett at WestLB said that EAs titles wont be available until up to 12 months after the Xbox launch date.
"Its important," said Liggett. "But EA is not going to bring truly exclusive titles to the Xbox. Most third parties are supporting titles that will co-release or are already out on PlayStation 2."
