      Xbox one

      So the big reveal was today, and so far it seems like they were aiming at casual gamers....IE trying attract a broader audience. Kenect out of the box...cloud processing, games DLed on the hard drive. Only problem is Live is still Live, and you cant take games over your friends house, because they wont be able to play them without paying a fee. At this point, I'm pretty sure I'm going to get a PS4 or build my computer. Simply because PC game prices drop considerably quicker, and both formas don't require some eye built in on the device at all times. What do you guys think? Excited? Yawing? Wishing it was the holodeck?

      The digital rights management is a dealbreaker for me.

      Yeah...that was the last straw for me too. I mean, that sort of eliminates the whole aspect of heading to your friends house and playing a game with them. I can see it from a business standpoint where companies want money for their products, but I don't expect to pay a fee for borrowing someones movies or CDs.

      It's not like a game doesn't make it's money back from DLC. COD is like on it's 3rd map pack for 15 bucks. Even if someone bought a used copy of the game, they're still making decent money. On that note, I really hope this thing backfires in Microsoft's face (much like the PSP go).

      I'll stick to PlayStation and PC gaming, and maaayyybe the Wii U. I'm not really an Xbox person, but I was excited for this conference, but there was hardly any mention of games. I can't say I'm surprised though, looking back on Microsofts recent e3 conferences, it hasn't been much about gaming but entertainment in general. It's more like a cable box that can play games, and I think they designed it to look just like that, a cable box.



      The name "Xbox One" I believe is suppose to mean it's an "all in ONE" entertainment center that plays movies, tv, games, music, etc. I actually think that was a poor choice for a name.

      I guess we'll have to wait for e3 to see if they'll announce any good games.

      Controller got uglier! Agree with above, a very poor choice for a name. Should have just stuck with Xbox 720, like everyone was expecting. Console is so boring looking as well...

      Looks like Playstation has my loyalty for another generation. Much stronger 'out of the gate' presentation/performance, IMO. I think Microsoft might be doing themselves in, focusing more on the 'entertainment center' aspect than core gaming (in terms of gamer appeal. The thing is still going to sell like crazy, regardless).

      Here are a few comparisons:

      Xbox One vs. PS4 Spec Comparison | Digital Trends

      AnandTech | The Xbox One: Hardware Analysis & Comparison to PlayStation 4

      Well the 15 exclusives, 9 brand new titles (could be wrong...it could be 15 games at opening, but I know 9 of them are going to be brand new franchises) thing was actually kind of good. But yeah, they ruined it with DRM. I think they're not trying to bust a lid on everything due to the fact that E3 is in like 18 days. Still so far, PS4 hands down.

      I really genuinely believe that the big gaming companies are about to run themselves into the ground. With all this DRM bullshit, all they're doing is pissing off fans, and, ultimately, encouraging them to do whatever they can to get around it. I'm SO tired of companies treating us like even though we bought a product, all we are doing is renting it. We paid for our stuff... let us PLAY with our stuff.

      EA launches Sim City - always online
      EA ditches online pass, but Sim City remains always online
      EA joins forces with Microsoft
      Xbox One may have fee for used games and some games will be always online
      Xbox One may need to connect to the internet at least once every 24 hours

      What could possibly go wrong?

      I just found out you can't swap out the hard drive either :/

      If I were to get one of these two, I would go with the PS4. I have no plans to, as I'm a PC guy, but I'm not a fan of where Microsoft is going with the Xbox.

      Man, the HDD better be a TB. I have a feeling it's going to fill up quickly since it's installing the whole damn blu ray on it. Oh and lets not forget about the DVR capabilities for TV TV TV TV TV TV TV TV TV TV. LOL Maeni!

      I believe it's 500gb at the moment which is incredibly small if we don't have the option to switch it out

      I might get the new Kinect so it can be hacked for motion control in virtual reality, but otherwise the Xbox One looks like a massive peace of shit that is trying to appeal to a dying field of entertainment.

      I think this is just a rumor, but now people are saying that if you buy a game used, you will have to pay full price for it

      Pretty much yet another console i won't care about honestly, and those new consoles seem to be even worse than previous ones so far... As one of the least casual people around especially gaming-wise i should be fine with my nice PC.

      "... Microsoft filed a Kinect related patent last year that would allow a system to monitor a room to determine if the number of viewers in a room exceed the content provider's license."

      I thought you were kidding, but LOL, you were not.

      If this turns out to be true, no matter how big a fan of XBOX I would be, no matter if I'm always the only person in the room, I would NEVER buy this console. Can you spell Big Brother? What else will it monitor? Will it send an electric shock to my bed if my lazy ass sleeps too long? Or send cops to me if I say something politically incorrect? Like FU Msoft?

      Don't take me wrong. I had PSX, have Xbox, PS2 and PSP. Love playing vid games.

      But what I would like is to have a decent console that plays GAMES, that I can actually afford. I don't need it to do anything else. Well, if it could fetch beer, I would be down with that. And If they want to make an expensive console that has everything else in it, I'm down with it too.

      Microsoft started closing the comments section on their Youtube videos.
      (ex. Xbox One Unveil Video - YouTube)

      Maybe they're starting to get it?

      The URL for their Xbox Reveal Highlights video literally has "-ps4" written at the end of it.

      Man, people are tearing the Xbox Facebook page a new asshole. LOL. I have never seen such a one-sided surge of people talking about switching from one system to another (Xbox to Ps4 or PC) than I have in the past few days.

      If this thing doesn't walk on water at E3, the Xbox legacy is in serious trouble.
