The Xbox 720 will be the next-generation system that is released by Microsoft, but with the current state of the device, the Xbox 720 needs to be looking to refocus its emphasis on providing top-of-the-line gaming content, according to its founder.
According to a report from IGN on Wednesday, the original founder of the Xbox Nat Brown spoke in-depth about how he feels the Xbox has lost its way.
"The past 5 years, and the last year in particular, have been simply painful to watch. Coasting on past momentum.
"Failing to innovate and failing to capitalize on innovations like Kinect.
"Touting strategic and market success when you’re just experiencing your competitor’s stumbling failure (yes, Sony, Nintendo – you are, I’m afraid, stumbling failures).
"A complete lack of tactical versus strategic understanding of the long game of the living room," Brown said.
He did go on to say he agrees that providing a better living room connectivity should be part of Microsoft's business plan, it just shouldn't be at the cost of what established the system when it debut back at the turn of the century.
You can read the rest of what Brown said regarding the Xbox in the list above. He goes on to cover such topics like abandoning high quality game content, the current lack of support the system has for smaller developers and how someone needs to refocus the brand.
