"Wii U? Is that like a special edition of the Wii?"

Agreed. I caught myself saying Xbox 1 recently talking about the original Xbox. And it was awhile before I realized the Wii U was actually a new console.

They might pay off the cost of developing the first Xbox soon then! tongue.gif

It's not easy to push a console that's more expensive and less powerful at the same time. That was Sony last gen, and is MS this one.

I'd like the xbone more if it:
  • Had better specs. The hardware is already holding it back now, it's going to be real bad in a few years.
  • Didn't try to be a HTPC. The HDMI pass-through is a gimmick which makes me think MS just wants to force you into using the xbone more
  • Didn't feel like a cash grab. The live gold and VOD stuff all reeks of MS wanting to scrape more money from your $500 purchase. Shoot, for 500 bucks that stuff should be free forever.

PS4 is the way to go. PS3 aside from it's funky hardware didn't too shabby either.

Not really, I think it will be even less crucial as time goes on. The only reason it is a big deal now is because they are comparable to current pcs. Imagine in a few years when mid-range PCs are pushing 4k, the difference between the PS4 and Xbone will be negligible. It's like arguing which is faster, a 2001 Camaro z/28 or a 2001 Mustang GT, both are so slow compared to cars nowadays they will get walked by a V6 Camry, so just buy the one you like.

It should be noted that both major consoles now require this for multiplayer. Though MS have made the strange decision to also require it for, say, Netflix.

I'm a little surprised that either console is selling as-is, there's barely any games out for them, and they're all on last-gen at the same time. Even Titanfall which is likely to move a lot of XBOnes is on the 360 too (albeit, the launch for the 360 is delayed by a month or something).

Sold my 360 years ago. Got a PS3 this year (first time). Didn't like anything about the Xbox other than the controller. The UI was crap. The ads are crap. XBL is crap. The PS3's UI is simpler, not as busy and gets the job done.

It's a shame, because the Xbox was great.

Kinect is killing the XB1. Microsoft needs to stop pushing hardware that no one wants. Make it optional, and sell an unbundled console matching the price point of the PS4.

Or better yet, lower.

-To be honest, with up scaling, and the games that I currently have for the Xbox One, I can't tell the difference. I have played both consoles, and plan on buying a PS4 in a few months, but it will be for exclusives not because I like one console over another.

-The HDMI pass-through is actually pretty handy. Even if you don't have cable, you can use it for other HDMI devices without having to change your input on your TV.

-XBL Gold isn't any more expensive than PS+ is. Xbox video services were all on the Xbox 360 as well and no one complained about them, they just simply didn't spend $5 to rent a movie.
