Arachnophobe: Certain keywords and similar phrases popping up are also kind of giveaways. I keep seeing a lot of different people saying 'innovation' and 'blown away' and 'taking gaming into the future/next generation/to the next level' and variants on those themes. When you see those same phrases pop up, it really gives credence to the 'reputation management' theory.


Why would Microsoft need to provide positive press for the Xbox One™?  This system is going to redefine the way we look at interactive entertainment, where I can begin my day with Nike Trainer Plus™ for Kinect™, watch The Price Is Right™ during the day, and end it with an intense Halo™ match on Xbox Live™.  Wow.  This is an amazing system.

I'm just an average gamer. I think people are being too harsh on Microsoft's X-Box One. I was utterly blown away with the footage revealed at E3. Microsoft has proven they are taking gaming into a whole new generation. I wouldn't want to buy that other system, unless you want to be left in the digital dust. I will be purchasing two Microsoft's X-Box One systems, and will recommend it to all my friends. I encourage you to do the same.

Right now I see no way the the XBox One is going to present a better value than the PS4.

Microsoft has been doing so well lately.  I don't get the reason for suddenly going out of their way to alienate their customers.


I know! They've been doing so well lately! Like just in the last year they've released a phone and a new OS that everyone is really enthusiastic about! And woo, let's talk about their browser! The newest Internet Explorer, OBVIOUSLY winning the browser war! And Bing, so awesome. Man, they come up aces in every department, they're doing so well lately!

REALITY: Microsoft's out of touch with their customers.

the money is in the banana stand: Carth: JohnnyC: Carth: You can turn Kinect if off but your xbox won't function until you turn it back on. It is integrated at the OS level and needs to be connected to play any games or watch tv through xbox. That is what the last report i saw said if oyu have a link saying otherwise I"d love to see it.

See here. It's from Microsoft. Of course if you're like the next guy I'm replying to, it won't make a difference at all if you read that link because he thinks Microsoft is lying about what their system is doing...

BumpInTheNight: Right, because a microsoft press release is the most honest and trustable source of information about the underpinnings of their little box and what it will and won't do if MS was tasked or the box itself was exploited.

Okay... I think I understand. You're convinced that Microsoft is out to get you and this is just part of their nefarious plot. You're probably right... unplug everything, they are watching you.

The link flat out says you can't turn off kinect when the system is on you can only pause it. Sorry Microsoft not good enough. If the game I'm playing, or if I'm watching tv, and i don't want to use kinect i should be able to unplug it completely.

 
Duct Tape over sensor eye - or - put object in front of it. Seriously the always on thing is a bunch of derp unless your complaint as about wanting to play single player games and your internet connectivity is spotty.

Yeah I agree, the Xbox One sure is innovative and very bold! How much imagination should one have in order to make a perfectly good console that everybody loves into something that provides so much irritation to gamers?

It's like selling cars. Your old model was good and runs perfectly fine, then you expect people to buy the next model by implementing ridiculous requirements like "This car won't run if you don't let it authenticate on the internet at least once per day!" or "If other people want to drive your car, they should have been on your friends list for 30 days or more, and they can only drive your car once!" or even "This car cannot be driven out of state or out of the country!". These requirements and "features" are ridiculously anti-consumer. Of course the customers will buy the competitor's car which runs just the same, minus all the hassles of your car's model.

You know your product is horrible if your competitor's winning marketing campaign highlights your features and announces "We don't have these crap!".

Or one of those outsourcing companies that contracts to whatever company de-jour wants them to astroturf on their behalf.  Its neat once you start using the farky favourite text line to tag people with various positions.  I've only recently started the tagging practice but its already shown a few handles that have bizzarely conflicted stances on issues.  (do not try this in the politics tab, I imagine you'd go insane even glancing into that abyss)

If you want to find the shills, be sure to point out that XBone's GPU is a full third less powerful than the PS4.

kendelrio: Carth: MithrandirBooga: Dougie AXP: MithrandirBooga: I am going to enjoy all of the butthurt from PS4 owners when they buy the console and find that the publishers are simply going to make the same DRM requirements the XBox One will have, or when Sony changes its mind a few months down the line and mandates it.


Look we all know digital distribution and the mandatory DRM that goes along with it is the future. It's taken over PC games in the form of Steam/Origin/Gamefly/Amazon/etc. Arguably those services restrict you more than the XBox One will. And PC users love them.

Console users will embrace it eventually. They just need to have their whiny immature manchild temper tantrums first.

There's a difference though, Steam allows you to play games OFFLINE. With no requirement once the initial check is completed.  That's fine with me.

The problem I have is the always on, always watching, always listening Kinect camera that I CANNOT DISCONNECT to be 100% sure that I'm not being watched/listened to.


Be honest. When was the last time you used a computer/console that wasn't attached to the internet at least once a day. I still haven't found a single person outside of the military who can admit to this. So really, the problem is... what, exactly?


Second: You can be 100% sure. You bet your ass people are going to have their Xboxes hooked up to routers that keep track of what data is sent back and forth. The first time *anyone* figures out that the Kinect is uploading anything it isn't supposed to, you bet your ass the entire internet will know in less than an hour

Every winter. People in NE frequently lose power for 3-5 days it is why everyone has generators. Parts Vermont lost power for weeks last year. Why shouldn't I be able to play single player video games off a generator when the internet is down?

Chiming in on that point. I work offshore in the Gulf of Mexico and our PS3 gets connected MAYBE once every three months.

I finally got decent flat screen with HDMI and the X360 isn't doing a whole lot for me any longer.

Picked up a PS3 just for grins, first time owning one, and it's kinda impressive.

I don't trade games, but the PS4 is calling to me because:

1.  The Microsoft announcements were full of douchebaggery.  Unapologetic douchebaggery again and again.
2.  The Sony guys were fun and seemed to know their demographic.
3.  MS didn't seem to know their asses from a hole in the ground.
4.  The only titles I'm interested in, that I can't get on the PC are - Destiny and Dust 514 (the upgraded version).  I'm sure there will be other PS4 titles coming out that are interesting to me - but the new Xbox didn't have ANYTHING to interesting me.  Online media, and driving games.  Ohh boy.

I'm probably buying an Xbox One as soon as I can, and this is why.

The Kinect sounds incredibly interesting. I know it's always on, and I honestly don't care. I like the possibilities that the camera/voice interaction can bring. I like the novelty of being able to control my entertainment system with a gesture. It seems fun, intuitive, and would be something I could share with friends.

I also remember Xbox requiring broadband for their service, back when only like 1 in 5 households even had broadband. They were looking for a console that would cater to the new customers that were on the way. Microsoft has the capital to sustain a money losing prospect for long enough to turn a huge profit on it, so I figure most of you folks who are so pissed right now will end up buying one, eventually.

I also like a dozen of 15(?) exclusives. For a gaming system, PS4 doesn't seem to care to give you special exclusive games. If Xbox One was somehow jipping the gamers to offer the extra features, why do they have so much money invested in exclusive, highly desirable games?
A massive cloud to support the gaming system is attractive to me too. Microsoft is pumping a ton of cash into this, they're putting in the work, I think they're likely to continue to improve the system. Xbox One will serve me as a gaming platform just fine.

My main concern, I suppose, is the Red Ring of Death incident. They really farked up that hole deal. I was personally burned on this one issue 3 times, although the fourth one they've sent me works fine, and all in all It didn't cos tme any money other than weeks of waiting for the mail.
I hope they don't repeat this. It's not like Sony, having installed viruses onto my computer not too long ago, is all peaches and cream in my book either.

If Xbox doesn't offer at least  a 1 year warranty on the system, as a default, I will reconsider my choice.


I'll also buy a PS4, when they get some exclusives that I want.

And the crazy thing is, I'm a PC gamer. :)


What does tick me off is the responses from Microsoft. They sure do know how to be dickish in their PR.

SuperNinjaToad: I see a lot of XBONEs under millions of X'mas trees this year. Why? because gradnparents and 12 yr old kids don't know and don't care about DRM, Kinect, always on etc.
To them it's more about buying into the marketing hype and the games they can play on XBONE. Also peer pressure because most of their buddies have XBONEs as well,


It would be the only thing under the tree. Average christmas spending for entire families is about the cost of an xbox one and two games.
