There are lots of arguments over the Xbone but the really creepy part is the damn Kinect is always on when the Xbone is on.. you can't turn it off.

Its sad that xbox is moving away from the core console gamers that they had just to get soccer moms and kids into wanting the console "that has everything". I know I wont be buying an xbox one, I'll enjoy watching the release of it crash and burn.

Xbox One's future is looking like crap. So much flak because of used game policys and all the other bullshit Microsoft has implemented, which seems to be a shotgun blast to their own foot.

I'll reserve my judgement on it until after release, but it isn't looking pretty so far. If Sony has amped up the online experience I'll just go with PS4. I don't appreciate this move to cloud stuff the Xbox is going to have. Internet isn't dependable or great in all regions of the US. If I was a CEO at Microsoft I'd have the PR and design team of Xbox One shot to death.

I'm having the same issue. You won't be able to play used games on Xbox one, unless the publisher makes that a option. I.e. The game producer. So at least all games will have to be new at first anyway. I have a hard time deciding so far. Ps4 will be charging for online now as well.

Playstation Plus isn't required though, at least not for everything like Xbox Live is...

  • Microsoft allows you to gift games to friends but they can't "borrow" them. Microsoft says of this, "loaning or renting games won’t be available at launch, but we are exploring the possibilities with our partners."
  • Xbox One will also allow you to give up to 10 family members access to "log in and play from your shared games library on any Xbox One."
  • You can always play your games, but only one of your family members can be playing from your shared library at a given time.
A post on Microsoft's Xbox Wire confirms that games can only be played offline on the primary console for up to 24 hours. After that, the console will need to be connected to the internet or it will not be possible to play games. Watching TV, Blu-ray or DVD movies is still allowed, however.

The internet connection requirements are stricter for those that want to play a game on a secondary console. If an Xbox One game owner wants to play a game at a friend's house, they are required to be connected to the internet every hour.
This. In addition, if XB1 is more strict on used games and licensing, even though it may be frowned upon more by gamers, it will attract more developers and publishers. This will lead to more potential exclusive IP's. It's about the moneyz. Irrational and 2K Games spent nearly $100 Million on Bioshock Infinite. Games are getting buku expensive. They are going to gravitate to one console over another if they feel their license can be better managed (lucrative).

I read a lot of user comments on other sites and most people don't know about this. It's M$ fuck up that they now have to deal with. Morons. They just gave Sony most of their new pre-order business.

The Kinect debacle is their other problem, but at least they now have said you will be able to disable/turn it off.

The extra $100 sucks but over the lifespan of 6-8 years it's not that big of a deal to me. $50 of that extra cost is probably just paying Sony for the BluRay license Sony isn't including the "Eye" with their console ($60 extra) which XB1 comes standard with the Kinect. Xbox 360 release in 2005 was $399. People screaming over nothing really.

I've always liked the interface and experience of Xbox live over PS3's Network. I have more contacts with XBL, better content there also, and I could never really get used to the Playstation controller.

XB1 exclusives > PS4 exclusives, if you care. And at least initially, neither supports backward capability.

Not to be outdone by how ugly and bulky the XB1 is, Sony made the PS4 is even uglier.

IMO, It seems Sony built the PS4 for gamers now (2013-2015) and M$ built the XB1 for gamers/entertainment for future (2014-2019ish) *shrug*

SWTOR was fun for like a week, lol. D3 was a let down and not as good as D2, SC2 is overrun by Koreans so I can't play.. lol. I've been stuck on LoL for a while now, and quit then go back to it. Going to try Marvel tonight to see what's up, created by the maker of D2 with D2 in mind.. Should be interesting.

Required internet connection and no used games is a deal breaker for me. It really sucks because I love my 360 but I'm out in the sticks and can only get dial up, well satalite high speed is available but just too damn expensive. So I guess I'll be converting to ps4. This is a huge mistake by Microsoft, I know a lot of hard core gamers that are in the same boat as me.

It requires a short authentication ONCE every 24 hours. If a player's internet connection is out for 24 hours or more you have bigger problems. I would bet the percentage of gamers who play with an internet outage that lasts more than 24 is hours is very small.

In a post on the Xbox Wire website, Microsoft said that in terms of trading in or reselling their Xbox One disc games to retailers such as GameStop,"We designed Xbox One so game publishers can enable you to trade in your games at participating retailers. Microsoft does not charge a platform fee to retailers, publishers, or consumers for enabling transfer of these games."

And what about just giving an Xbox One game disc to a friend? Microsoft said that this is allowed, but also put in two restrictions: " ... you can only give them to people who have been on your friends list for at least 30 days and each game can only be given once." Microsoft said no fees would be charged for these actions.

That's the good news. The bad news is that Microsoft is giving third party game publishers an option to set up their own restrictions on used Xbox One game discs.
And on that last sentence, PS4 is doing the same thing. Optional.



It's interesting to hear the reaction of console players when PC gamers have been in this (licensing/online connection) realm for years. *shrug*

I have always bought the console at the redesign in 3 years. That way all the good games are out and I wont spend a fortune on the newer system. As long as Assassin Creed 4 comes out for the PS3 I could care less.

Like being in Afghanistan?

I play more story modes and single player than I ever had since i've been deploying. I cant connect to the internet on my console all the time. Most of the free time we get is when there is weather, and guess what thats usually when the internet is out.

Xbox lost the entire military/deployed civilians.

PC. Mouse is waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaay better for aiming.
I still have an xbox so I can play with my friends that dont have pc's (whiners ) and I can still play some exclusive titles. I used to have the trifecta (xbox ps3 pc) but I sold my ps3.
Long story short PC FTMFW
