I'm just putting the foreward and the part about the Xbox One, if you want to read the whole article and see the other 22 winners go to the source...

Imagine the People’s Choice Awards, except the applause and trophies go to breakout products rather than breakout celebs: The Product of the Year USA winners are those ingenious consumer goods—from a kid-friendly squeezable fruit snack to an all-in-one entertainment system—that make our lives a little *easier and better nearly every single day. Now in its sixth year, the competition begins with a jury of industry pro*fes*sionals who identify submissions that show innovation in *function, design, packaging, or ingredients. Then the real experts weigh in. A panel of 40,000 American shoppers, reflecting the diversity of our *national popu*lation, choose the products they like best, from all aisles of the supermarket and beyond. Perhaps what’s most interesting is what the winners say about us. Read on to learn the shopping trends that the 23 items represent.

For the team behind Microsoft’s Xbox, launching a new *iteration meant rethinking the device entirely. “The gaming console has moved out of the basement and into the living room,” says director of product planning Albert Penello. In creating the new Xbox One, Penello’s team designed a multipurpose entertainment hub for the whole family. In addition to games, it plays Blu-ray movies, live TV, and streamed or downloaded TV shows, movies, and music—and it can be operated by voice commands through its Kinect sensor. “The first time the Kinect responded to someone’s voice in an early demo, the whole team cheered.”

Two reasons...

1. the Price

2. Sony marketed the PS 4 as a gaming machine that can do some other things, MS is marketing the Xbox one as an entertainment centerpiece that also happens to play games... Most people will buy the cheaper "gaming" system because they want to play games, and yes the Xbox One play's games also, but it's marketed more as an entertainment all in one device not as a gaming machine to the casuals...

Serious question why do people say this? yeah there's only like two maybe three exclusives out, but there's more games for the PS 4 then their are Xbox One when you count the Free PS + games (which are games) yeah 98% of the games out aren't fun anymore after the initial "new game smell" wears off...but there's still games out there...


it should be where are the games both companies? they both are lacking

Xbox One has the most diverse library out of the two. Also, a lot of PS4's indies and free-to-plays are ports of PC titles that were already out before the PS4 even dropped. Hell, the PS4's best rated game is a 5-year-old PS3 game. So it's not really introducing anything new or fresh, just rehashing a lot of the same #### we've been playing.

That's how I see it anyway. Hopefully Infamous changes all that in a few weeks

I should say I guess the PC stuff doesn't matter for non-PC gamers since the games are new to them anyway, but for someone like me who has played all that stuff on a better machine already, it just seems like the PS4 isn't offering much right now. A lot of those games aren't that good, to boot.

I agree but I mean when someone says "Where are the game Sony" that's a bull#### question because the PS 4 has MORE games than the Xbox one does right now, yeah the Xbox one might have more games you or me or someone else wants to play, but it doesn't change the fact that the PS 4 has MORE games...so it should be "Where are the Games MS" if we want to get technical, but yes I sold all my PS 4 games except k!llzone (and it's up for sale just haven't found a buyer) on the PS 4 because the games have run their course to me... i'm waiting for this power cord for the Xbox one so I can experience it for myself... but like I said the PS 4 has MORE games in total...

also ... we live in the age of hypebeasts ... people bought the first thing they could get they hands on ....

hypebeasts + cheaper price was an automatic W for sony .....



i tend to think differently..... i think the XB1 technology scared of some of the more novice gamers as well as the parents that dont understand the tv part is hooked up just by connecting an hdmi cord ... people are afraid of change ...

yes and that goes along with what i said, MS is marketing the Xbox as able to do all this, but aren't saying how easy it is to do, so parents and the casual's are like "ehh that's pretty cool but you probably need to do this or buy that to be able to watch Tv plus it's $100 more, and all I want to do is play games" so they grab the cheaper system to play games, it's the marketing angle MS rolled out which kind of is hurting them, not to mention price...

games are lacking on both .... but AT LEAST xb has given their fans some version of halo (which is fun) ... forza .... and they see light at the end of the tunnel with PVZ dropping today and the most anticipated game of they year dropping in weeks ....

by the time sony drops something eagerly anticipated ... halo 5 will be rolling out .....
well inFAMOUS is highly anticipated and it comes out march 18th, so not too far after Titanfall... but the games being fun is subjective to opinions, I LOVE k!llzone, I HATE absolutely HATE Driving Sims so I would never even touch Forza, I much prefer Need For Speed which is on both systems, I do want to play Ryse and Dead Rising 3, not really a fan of k!ller Instinct or f!ghter's but I will check it out... but the games to play are opinions, the main fact the PS 4 is selling better is the price combined with the marketing....

The N4G responses to this are pretty pathetic. Why do gamers get so mad about other people liking a system they didn't choose? It's a ####ing product.

it boggles my mind that this would boggle anyones mind...look at the last few years of last gen cycle...look at the exclusives...while xbox owners were looking forward to minecraft updates..ps4 was still going strong as ever people wanted in on those exclusives

not to mention the xbox one is clearly worse overall

XBOX ACTUALLY WON! Xbox One Wins Product Of The Year





Xbox One has scooped its first consumer award. Microsoft’s next-gen console won the top home entertainment gong in 2014′s Product of the Year awards.

Gamespot reports that over 40,000 consumers were consulted through market research company TNS to determine their products of the year in various categories. The full list of winners has been published over on AdWeek.

Xbox One has topped the ‘Home Entertainment’ bracket, and according to Product of the Year’s organisers the console and its fellow winners will see a 10-15% sales boost as a result of being featured in an accompanying cover feature in Parade Magazine.

Speaking with Parade, Microsoft director of product planning Albert Penello said, “The gaming console has moved out of the basement and into the living room.”

Xbox One has currently sold over 3 million units worldwide and counting. Microsoft hopes to get more gamers on board with this UK price cut and Titanfall console bundle.

What do you make of Xbox One so far?
