This is part of a series I’m writing on the earliest part of DotA - the lane phase. How you control your lane and the creeps within is a vital part of playing a good game. Matches can be won and lost in the first few minutes, and learning how to maneuver around the creep wave to beat your enemies out of the lane can make all the difference in the world.
So judging by the internet’s response, I am sensing that Xbox One’s launch was a piece of shit.
Which got me wondering, what would it actually take for someone like Micrsosoft or Sony to launch a console everyone raved about?
These companies are on the same page as every other multi billion dollar tech pipeline. You bring out a first generation revolutionary device (Xbox vanilla, PSX, iPhone, etc) then refine and resell the same product every few years after that.
What is the audience expecting? No one re-invented the wheel, people just improved it. That’s all you’re going to get if you choose to buy closed products.
