You may be wondering how we could make such a claim before the new Xbox console is even out, and with gamers shouting the walls of the internet down with their rage-filled cries of shock at the new Xbox, it would sound like a crazy claim to even think about making. However, Microsoft must be on the right track despite what many have been thinking.
Blockbuster has recently reported that the Xbox One has received more preorders than any other preorder in the history of Blockbuster (around 24 years). What this says at face value; many families and gamers alike seem to dig the home-media combo that is the Xbox One, and two, the Xbox One now caters for what the average consumer feels the need to have in their household.
If the Xbox One was released ten years, ago, I doubt it would reach this many pre-orders, but as we become more and more connected, Microsoft's direction with the Xbox One does actually make sense.
Perhaps the console isn't as game-centric as the Xbox 360 was in its early days, but the console will still have games, and on top of that, enough media to keep you spending any more money on TV boxes, music players and other living room electronics. (unless you already have all those features of course.)
