Decided to start writing posts for a small video game blog, All The Coins. It is my first piece for this website, and we’ll see what happens. Don’t expect much, but even the larger gaming news sites started off small.
Imagine if Microsoft had a monopoly on the gaming industry. What would it look like?
Think back to the 2013 Electronic Entertainment Expo (E3) when the Xbox One was announced. Gamers were shocked at not only the system itself, with it’s restrictive digital rights management (DRM) policy and its lack of focus on gaming, but its price. The immediate reaction from gamers, even those fiercely loyal to the Xbox brand was disgust. Many like Angry Joe took to Twitter and YouTube to say that they would being buying Sony’s Playstation 4 since it was clearly the system designed for gamers. Microsoft would eventually lose out in pre-orders and early sales because of this mistake.
