I actually like the Xbox One. Everyone complains about needing internet connection but honestly, if one has a game system they most likely will have internet connection. Also, I never really play with anyone else in the room, I only play online so I usually don't have others sitting with me. AND I highly doubt they are "spying" on us. We aren't that interesting.
Nevertheless I am more interested in Nintendo, much better than Xbox One and PS4 atm in my honest opinion. I obviously don't have $399 or $499 to spend
I think the internet connection issue isn't that people don't have internet, but more that some people just don't use the internet based features. Having to check in online every time you want to play a game is ridiculous unless you're actually going to play online.
I have a Wii and a PS3 atm, and I have a good internet connection. I'm able to hook up to the internet, but I don't want to. I have never connected to the internet. I play co-op games with my sister (or our friends, when they're over) and I buy my games from the store. I don't need to go online for anything, so I don't bother.
My point is, up till now, being an online presence was a choice, and if you chose that, good for you. Buy personally, I'd rather keep my consoles internet-free.
You'd think that letting Kinect work even when the Xbox was off (so that for those who aren't witty enough to cover it up, it's basically a surveillance camera) would be illegal too. Alas, we're in an era of low-privacy...
Yeah... And if I need it on and uncovered they'd just regret spying me. I'll wear shit that'll scare them and I'll do things they wouldn't want to see but I wouldn't mind showing lol XD Or I'd point it at my cat :3
I know they've almost ruined the xbox with the new things they put in place but don't blame the creators of it blame game publishers they've been pushing for the registering the game crap thing they have been pushing for that sort of thing since before the reveal of the 360 also I don't mind registering my games cuz I know a lot of them are going to be good like Ryse son of rome what's a few restrictions when you know you are going to get the best performance and graphics a console has to offer since the 360 and PS3
For some people, the Xbox One will be fine. But the issue isn't solely with game registry (which I understand, because gaming companies do lose money without it via used games and borrowing; but let's face it: games are expensive, and that's why people do it--but if costs were down, graphics would be awful).
There are a lot of things to think about with Xbox One--like the fact you can't play even single player if your internet is down, or if your Kinect is off your games won't work, or you have to load the game onto the hard drive and have it eat up space (games are big), among other things... hard to tell how much is rumor or not at this point, so I'm waiting to see when it comes out. Besides, I like to try out games before I buy them. If I can't borrow or rent them anymore, the risk isn't always worth it. Yeah, the company gets it's money--but I end up with a game I don't want and can't get rid of because nobody else is able to use it. I'll buy the ones I love and play them again/finish them at my own pace, it's how I do it. It becomes a waste of money a lot of people can't afford between rent and other bills (let alone when the console itself costs half a month's rent on its own).
Also, the 360 is already 3D compatible... HD... how much better are the graphics really going to get? Aside from the fact it can probably read Blu-Ray discs now?
I see ya point some things they have done to it are stupid however I most likely like yourself have kept up to date with the news on it through xbox live event also like most big brand names they will release a demo or trial game for you to try out before you buy they maybe stupid but they are not morons but most games that I've seen such as Ryse Son Of Rome, Project Spark and Forza 5 demos shown to the public speak for themselves these game will be the ones that make or break the Xbox One but from what I have seen so far the games they are realising to me are worth those little restrictions especially Ryse the graphics on that are way better than any 360 game I have played. But that said they did kind of show their hand on how much faith they have in it by announcing Halo 5 that game has clearly been brought up as a lifesaver to get people to buy the Xbox One if they still want to continue playing the halo games which in itself is pretty weak if you ask me but still when I can I will get an Xbox One but I will not like most gamers will do trade my 360 in to get a cheaper price on it there are no guarantees that all 360 games will be able to be played on it just like with the original xbox and 360. No matter what they do to the Xbox franchise there will be always someone who will want to buy the next gen consoles and games I am just disappointed that the publishers are more concerned about money than appearance oh well such is life right.
Oh yeah. You do make a point about the demos, forgot about those. I've heard rumors the One will not be backwards compatible with 360 games at all; but that could just be--like I said--a rumor. *shrugs* They're doing the same with Assassin's Creed 4 as they are with Halo, too.
We shall see, we shall see. I would love to be loyal, because I adore my 360 (and it is awesome); but it all depends. Hoping they'll listen a bit to their gamers in the end.
Well we can only hope they do I know a lot of game design companies listen to their fans when they are making a sequel or prequel to their games only time will tell who knows the amount of bad rep I'm seeing on the web might just be noticed by them and they may make a few changes before release they've got at least what 4 and bit months to update and change anything they want about the Xbox One only one can wish hay oh well no point hoping we will just have to see for ourselves like everyone else.
:I iv yet to see one argument on here ya know comparing the good points with the bad points, so far evryones being a negitive moron. no your not morons for disliking it, your moronss for letting people twist the words and make ou belive its bad, or becuase you refuse to look at the ya know, good parts, or better yet, the bad parts that are actly not thst bad.
Tell me at least one good thing about the Xbox One, because I've yet to see anything good about it other than possible improved graphics. The console is too bunched up, and if I have to be online for it, then screw it. I'm staying with the 360. Also, type like an adult while you add it instead of a dyslexic monkey.
1: its $100 more than the PS4 when its supposed to be an entertainment box capable of more than just games: live tv, streaming movies, more sports than what's on TV, etc 2: it has to check in online once a day. What about people with dial up or poor internet. They aren't allowed to play even single player games offline. 3: the whole convoluted game borrowing, rental, and used game system. Developers make TONS of money off new game sales. Going after used game sales just shows they're greedy and want more money. Its like buying a used car from a private seller and having to pay the manufacturer too, at a price they alone deem appropriate. 4: Microsofts online system requires you to pay just to access content. PS4 requires payment just to play online games. So the people who just play single player games and stream Netflix don't have to pay for the online service on top of the Netflix (or similar) service. 5: PS4 will be entirely backwards compatible, XboxOne will not.
Now don't get me wrong. I've been partial to the Xbox since it came out with the original console. But this whole ordeal is leaning me towards the PS4 pretty heavily.
I totally agree with you but I feel I should point this out, neither the new xbox or playstation consoles have backwards compatibility--but for some reason the Wii U does. [link] I still think it's incredibly creepy that the Xbox One gives them the possibilty of spying on you. And if your power/internet goes off, say, during a blackout, they'll make you buy everything over again. Microsoft kind of screwed themselves over on this one. xD
One article I read said the PS4 would be backwards compatible. Might have been in the reveal video too.
As for the Xbox losing all your games in a blackout, I don't think that would happen. All the game keys are saved to your user profile in the cloud and your game saves are saved to the Xbox hard disc. Internet outages for more than one day would mean you couldnt play. I would think they would do something like Steam does for most of their games. A lot of the games have the save on the computer and save a copy in the cloud so you can play on one computer, save, and then play on a different computer right where you left off.
please, sorry for my rude moron comment, i am sorry, i ddidnt read your comment back,becuase im falling asleep here and am stressed out from arguing with assclown guy, person. and reeealy just wanna move away from this, i know, i commented, this is what i get, blah blah.
You're ok. I wasn't personally offended, I was just explaining the points as I saw them. If my post came off as offensive, or attacking in any way, I apologize. I was tired myself and wasn't thinking completely clearly.
You had asked a valid question, and I provided my input. Most people tend to get on the rage or fanboy bandwagon and make stuff up to attack the other person.
For the Xbox one, you won't be able to play unless you are connected to Internet... (what are you doing about all the people who just want to play offline?)
Also, Microsoft will cause lots of trouble with used game. You want to share a game with your friends? Sorry, you can do this action only once per game and it has to be with a friend who has been in your Xbox friendlist for more than 30 days... Reselling used games will be limited to Microsoft's partners and it's not for the best: Microsoft will take some of the money made and so, the reseller will make less...
Now, let's have a look at Kinect, shall we? With the Xbox one, your Kinect will always have to be connected. That means that, while paying 100$ more for your Xbox one, you will have to get yourself the Kinect, if its not coming with the console package.
This is what other consoles doesn't have....
and apart the multi media center Microsoft is planning to build, can you tell me what Xbox one will have that other consoles won't? (worth the 100$ more!)
Kinnect will also monitor how many people are watching your XBone, namely for movie purposes. If too many people are watching they'll make you pay for the movie again. Oh, and you don't have the option of it being separate.
