[Various] Xbox One Reveal - Page 78

post #771 of 1376
Overall seems like a step back in every way. Definitely have no desire for all the non-gaming crap that a PC will always do better.

I have been a fan of Xbox since the beginning and Halo is my favorite game of all time, but I'm saying bye to Xbox. They don't seem to have listen to customer once again just like Windows 8.


Cons
*require internet at least once every 24hrs
*fee for 2nd activation of games
*weaker than PS4 (not fully confirmed but most likely)
*TV crap (why would people want this? Cutting the cord is more popular every day. TVs already provide same function ready)
*looks like a VCR
*has to have Kinect connected
*paying for Live
*connect to their servers so that a game cause have better graphics? ***?

What's positive about Xbox One? COD DLC early? Halo, which sucks after Halo 3? Pretty much nothing!

They didn't show anything new that hasn't been done. Xbox overlay will fail just like GoogleTV.
You forgot the biggest one:

*no backwards compatibility

Sadly PS4 is doing the same thing. In an age where game libraries are 10x more important than the consoles themselves I don't know why both companies are raising the middle finger to such a crucial aspect of gaming. It is also easily the strongest advantage of PC - being able to play age-old games no matter how many hardware upgrades you make.

I don't know anyone who is looking forward to keeping an XBox360 and XBox One in the same room or a PS2+PS3+PS4, are they expected to stack them and keep switching between inputs/connectors depending on which console they feel like playing on? That's absurd, so much faffing-around just to play older games, how stupid...how stupid...

Well honestly it depends on the developer. CDPR for example felt the bad press wasn't worth the risk. Instead they patched DRM out of Witcher 2 and became a fan favorite. Realistically the only way to reduce piracy is to guilt people into buying your product. The most awesome DRM technique by far though was the SS3 Scorpion.

(BTW.. What you describe is actually the exact same policy steam incorporates, yet somehow they take the blame for DRM.)

Always online? Fee for used games? Has to have Kinect? Yeah it looks like the PS4 will win this one.

Sony does the same. not mandatory, but do you think EA, Activision, etc. won't use this?

Because we all love being money pinatas in a MPAA/RIAA wet dream....

If anything could provide console gamers incentive to look at the "steam box" when it gets here. Paying Fees for used games? wth.gif

BREAKING NEWS:

Playstation 4 to win next gen battle."Nobody will buy an XBO" says internet.



BREAKING NEWS:

New Halo/Gears of War/Forza/Other exclusives release on XBO. "Everybody is buying an XBO" say retailers.



At the end of the day, if the console has games people want to play, they will buy the console. End of story. Making the whole judging the entire success of the platform based on hardly any actual games info a lesson in pointlessness.

And there are a whole load of people who want to play Halo/Gears/Forza and maybe even some new exclusives.


Then there are all the non predominantly gamer types who may be happy to have more use of their xbox when they or their kid isn't playing with Kinect or something.


There are so many times where internet opinion does not match real life and this could easily be one of those times.

Sorry to say it but the new xbox one will dominate the market when it comes out, no doubt about it. It will be marketed so hard that blu ray players, apple tv's, media players will all be non existent.

I agree, drm, semi-always on (perma on and you get benefits), used game fee, always on kinect and etc are all bad things but this is like another COD debate, unfortunately the masses will continue to buy and support crap like this.

Also I lol'd at the reveal, all I saw was an ad for Cod: Ghosts, don't even get me started on that POC.

Ladies and Gentlemen, the end of console gaming as we know it.

There are no brakes on the xbox train, choo choo, all aboard the bandwagon! choo choo!!

I'm not happy with fact that used games may require a fee. At the same time I feel it makes sense to a point. Publishers lose out on revenue due to used games. I can see where this might actually attract publishers to develop for the Xbox One. I can also see where the publishers might pressure Sony into going with a similar model.
