    Too funny!! ^^^

    I don't see it lasting very long, not with all the F-bombs... LOL

    What's an Xbox?
    So, are you willing to put forth a little effort or are you happy sitting in your skeptical poo pile?

    The cloud will be the Xbox One's strongest asset. ( so will the new kinect.) The cloud will allow for this system to keep more and more powerful over time. The cloud will allow for addition graphic, physx, and computing power. Xbox one will be a great media player and gaming system. + it will have Halo 5.

    (and on the issue of used games and only being able to use one copy of a game per account.)
    Welcome to the world of PC gaming. Ask any of us with Steam. This is how games are. Get over it, its just a CD KEY. Besides who is just giving their $65 games away to other people?

    Gamestop's stock already dropped over 11% since they announced that the Xbox one charges a persons account when they try to play a used game. Wonder how sony will handle used games?

    They didn't announce that. The internet just went crazy with people jumping to conclusions. They'll announce how both consoles handle used games soon.

    I think I would be interested in getting the new Xbox. I don't sell old games, I don't buy used games, and the only person I ever lend things to is my brother. So far, the "restrictions" on the Xbox regarding games doesn't sound like it will affect my gaming experience nor my brother's. I'll most likely be getting this but not anytime soon.

    I'll probably pick this up and the Playstation 4 maybe two years after release. I still have way too many games for my Xbox and Playstation 3 that I have not yet even opened from their packaging. I really need to stop buying games no matter how dirt-cheap they are.
    Mellow greetings. What seems to be your boggle?

    Yeah, nothing I've heard so far is a dealbreaker for me. I understand why people are pissed... but at the same time, I've known that physical media was on the way out for some time now. I kinda' dig the idea of having my entire digital library on the drive, ready to go instantly from any system in my house. It's like a media server for games.

    But then, my 360 is always online anyway... and I don't have a problem with Kinect 2 being on all the time. So I'm good.

    Sony did serve up a smack to Microsoft though. $399 and no DRM? OUCH. That said, none of the online required stuff bothers me, and I think being able to jump in and out of my entire library of games instantly is going to be cool. Plus... TITANFALL. Sold. Actually, all of the games Microsoft showed at their conference looked better than what Sony showed except for Destiny, which is coming to both systems. I was a little shocked by that.

    If PS4's controller isn't made for Asian midgets like the last one, maybe I'll end up with both. Heh...

    After doing a lot of reading about the new xbox and used game issues as well as the always online issues. It seems to me that the consumer caused this. If people just paid for their games, these things wouldnt be happening. I personally think its a fairly genius idea. I wouldnt be surprised to see the same kind of DRM on bluray players.

    I also found it interesting that microsoft games will always be allowed to be traded and sold. Its third party developers that may deny or charge a fee to play. That tells me that this used game issue isnt so much a microsoft idea as its a developers idea, and that the xbox agreed to try it out first .
    I dont care for the kinect on all the time but all it takes is something to cover the lens when its not in use. not really a huge deal.
    All in all I am really looking forward to it. I have been a long time xbox fan. I got my OG xbox 2 days after its release. I have had live for 10 years and looking to keep it going.

    Not a true gamer, but enjoy watching the mob that migrates downstairs play 360 games. I think some of them are my kids.
    I do know that one of my sons had put down $1XX preorder for the Xbox One at Gamestop. When he did (a couple of days ago ?), the official "Here's What's Going Down" hadn't been announced by Microsoft.
    Now that the Gods have spoken ? He's heading back up to Gamestop to try to shift his moolah over to a PS4 pre-order.

    My other son is also going with the PS4. Kind of surprising considering that both are die-hard Xboxers from way back in the day.

    Why ?
    Here's just the tip of the iceberg:

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JwYUGtI6guY

    Flawless victory, Sony !

    I'll admit: I won't be able to get on my Iphone and, through the PS4, talk to my refrigerator to get an inventory update on milk and canned peaches before I head home from work.
    And, sure, my sons (mob?) would be able to connect the cable box directly into the Xbox One and, while watching an NFL game, get instant updates on their fantasy football picks.
    And .... well, I could go on and on with this rant. But I think Chris Farley (SNL) said it best years ago:

    "Well, La-Dee-Freaking-Dah"

    If I wanted a Do-It-All console, I'd go out and buy a Muntz.

    Here at CP our moderators sometimes have to deal with some "troubles" but I daresay that it's nothing compared to what the forum moderators are going through over at Xbox.com Their mods will probably last another day before they succumb to terminal carpal tunnel syndrome. From locking threads. Awesome.

    I hope that by the time Halo 5 comes out (in 2015, it'll be directly written for the PS4 and not just ported over. Shoot, by 2015 Microsoft may have modified their stance on ... well, just about everything.

    BTW, I was wondering, will the Xbox One interface with my Zune because it doesn't recognize Windows 8 ?

    .... okay, now I'm just being snarkey.

    That's just the opinion of not a heavy duty gamer, but a heavy duty "GD it, who ate all the Cheetohs ?" couch potato backseat driver/viewer.

    Maybe already mentioned, but MS says they are going to continue to support the 360 for those who do not have Internet access, and there are plenty of new games in the pipe line. I'm more interested in how much better the graphics will be with the new Xbox versus the 360.

    Everythings going 4k and I doubt the new xb would be able to handle it so I think we will have a marginal improvement. The pc is just going to take it 3 levels up in the next 2 years making the new consoles seem like nintendo wii in contrast. With all that said I just pre ordered 5 minutes ago lol

    You have to admit that Microsoft did open themselves up to this.

    "At a coming-out party for its upcoming PlayStation 4 console, Sony leveled its guns at rival Microsoft's Xbox One device and fired until the chambers were empty.

    During a press event Monday night at the Electronic Entertainment Expo in Los Angeles, Sony hammered home key points about its new gaming system: Sharing games will be free. If people want to sell used games, that's fine. And a near-constant Internet connection, meant to monitor game usage, won't be required. In other words, the PS4 will do many things the new XBox apparently cannot. Oh, and the PlayStation 4 will sell for $399 -- $100 less than the Xbox One."

    If I do end up diving into the next-gen consoles, Sony just nailed me down for the PS4. I can live without Halo, and outside of that, what does the 360 really have to offer that the PS4 doesn't? Right now I'm so hooked on Diablo 3 that I don't see another console purchase on the horizon though.

    Hopefully, never going to a GameStop again. I know people are all about used games... but I'm all about consoles going to a Steam-like functionality where pre-orders just pre-download to my system the day before and then activate at midnight. And once digital takes hold, I think the prices will come down to make up for the change in paradigm. I'm ready to be done with GameStop's B.S. I know I'm in the minority on that... but the idea of having my whole library on my HDD and being able to access it from other rooms in my house without discs? EPIC. It's basically like my media server on my network, but for games... and I think that's more the future than just hanging on to physical media and refusing to accept innovation.

    (And I think 4K is retarded. Most people don't sit close enough to their 1080p sets to fully resolve 1080p as it is... and we need 4K in the home? Not unless it's on a 100" screen.)

    man you echo my thoughts completely. I dislike game stop but for me its because they like to rape people on used game prices and if a small company like say Rhino Games is around and sell classic systems, and modern games cheap. game stop runs them into the ground and then buys them out.

    I also agree in teh 4k. its a joke. I have seen the sony in person and from a reasonable sitting distance I see no gain. Now if your the kind of person that wants to sit 5" from a 90" then 4k is perfect

    Yeah, Amazon sold their initial allocation out in like 4 hours. Every GameStop near me did the same. I had two friends who had to hit Best Buy to get theirs. But that ship date on Amazon may be because they haven't said the actual DAY that it's released. Amazon often uses placeholders. I would leave your pre-order in place (since it costs you nothing to do so) for a while to see if that changes later.

    I've had people keep asking me why I'm glad Kinect 2 is a requirement, and since I think it's interesting for people buying, check this out:
    http://www.theverge.com/2013/6/11/44...-interactivity

    Also, this guy totally nailed the reason I'm all about this new move to digital:
    http://reviews.cnet.com/8301-21539_7...as-we-know-it/

    There's a stench of hypocrisy that emanates from a class of gamer who demands progress on every level from a new console, yet belligerently revolts at the discovery that games won't be delivered on plastic discs any longer.
    Yup... that guy totally gets it. Status quo = no innovation.
