What's your new avatar from? Looks like a don't bluth flick.

The crazy thing is show in six months sense launch how much microsoft has integrated and changed to get the one back to being viable. It took nintendo tweleve months to do the same.

WTF are you talking about? Wii U was on the market by itself for 12 months. They didn't have to adapt to any sort of tactic in regards to Xbox One or PS4. Xbox One launched with the PS4, and WiiU was already out for a year.

You have to see how the situations are different, and why it matters. Even if Microsoft's decisions are based on what Sony is doing, Nintendo is affected, as well.

The only funny and yet sad thing is all those PS4 owners who left Xbox cuz of the previous charade cuz I bet they are looking at their PS4 and thinking... "Uhhhhh... I might hafta trade you in for a Xbox One. You can't give me Halo so buh-bye."

I own a Wii U and 3DS. I also own a PS4!

Most seem invested or like me will just buy all three.

Plus PlayStation is the only place I can play a baseball game these days.

PS3 will be my main console with the one and Wii U being microsoft and Nintendo machines respectively. The one still would have a chance of being my main media player if I decide to jump back into the microsoft Eco system.

WAT!

You have to respect Microsoft for their ability to admit when they are wrong and change..... Nintendo needs to learn with them, unlike Microsoft Nintendo would maintain their anti-consumer policies (region lock, games tied to the console, country lock for digital games, bundled in gamepad) to the grave.

i saw the news earlier and I must say I'm liking the idea of a cheaper, Kinect-less version of the Xbone without the subscription requirement for apps like Netflix/Hulu/etc., but my main interest in an Xbox at all is that I've never actually played any of the Halo series games before. I'd very much like to get into them now that I'm into Red vs. Blue (yeah i know it has like next to nothing to do with the Halo storyline but I still want to play it now), but from what I've been able to find online (and please do correct me if I'm wrong here), there's no way to play anything prior to Spartan Assault on the Xbone? I don't want to invest in a 360, though, since it's kinda no longer a current-gen system. Give me backwards compatibility, Microsoft, and you've got yourself a buyer.

I think this no longer matters since Destiny exists.

sorry "should no longer matter". Reality does not equal logic.

OH WOW THE NEXT GEN CONSOLES SURE ARE HEATING UP-is still getting a PS3 or Vita instead

They are trying to get BC on Xbox One. I have tons of digital Xbox 360 games, so that would be a major plus, at least until Xbox One gets more games, and I can afford more games

@ferthepoet
Dude, they're working on a better account system. There is an account system. it just isn't as fleshed out. We've already been over this. Region lock and bundled items are subjective, as far as I'm concerned, because there are objective reasons why they do such things.

And only 15% of PS4 owners have bought one, meaning the market for such a device is quite small. So Sony made the right choice by selling it separately and not forcing it on consumers who didnt want it.

As a guy who got a PS3 Slim back in 2010 that included the Eye Toy and Move I can agree with this. Not only have I never bothered connecting the Eye Toy but the Sports Champions game is still factory sealed. I really don't see a reason to use it even with owning some games that are Move compatible.

Ya, but there are people out there that want this stuff. All I'm saying is that Sony should be able to make 15-20% of SKUs(based on that statistic) have the PS Camera and Move included for an extra $60-75. Then stock the shelves with stand alone PS Cameras and Move sets that cost more by themselves.

There's no way to determine any sort of demand for PS4 systems. I'm not saying this will happen, but PS4 sales could drop dramatically, and we'd probably see a situation Wii U went through directly after it's short term launch period. I'm pretty sure Sony wouldn't be able to survive a "drought" like Wii U has, and it hasn't even had the chance to go through such a thing.

We get it you hate Sony and want the PS4 to fail because it doesn't come with a camera you can buy separately at any time.

We've already been over this... I don't hate Sony. I actually like alot of their products. It just wouldn't surprise me if Sony announced support for PS4 has been ceased, sooner than expected.

7 million PS4s sold; not a dime of spare change

Also, you can't buy the camera. They're in limited quantity, which is exactky what we just discussed on the last page. I don't get why we discuss things if it doesn't matter...

I doubt this a lot seeing as Playstation is one of Sony's few profitable divisions and that is down to how well the PS4 has been selling.

All the people that called a Kinect-less Xbox with a price cut should come collect their ownage

And all the people that said it would never happen should be banned for being wrong, can we make that happen

Yes...a source confirming what @Jazzer94 said....that the PS4 is one of the only profitable things Sony has going right now. Good point!

Got some questions about the console:

Do you think there will be a Kinect less Xbox One at one point?
If you buy the Xbox One, can you just disconnect the Kinect and play normally with the controller without any voice commands etc?
The battery situation - is that just like with the Wii Remote? People buy third party rechargers? Is that annoying?

Well my wish was granted. Now this became a prime target for buying next Black Friday in order to play Arkham: Knight.
I'm still sort of hoping the game will turn out bad, or I'd be rather playing Bayonetta 2 or X, because I really don't want another console. It's the only game that is making me want one of these other options. And I'd rather not buy a PS.

@Jazzer94
I never said it wasn't their most profitable division. I was implying that it doesn't matter how successful PS4 is, because they still aren't making money, which is true, AND what I was discussing. Apparently, we were both confused.

Even if PS4 is their most profitable division, that doesn't override any sort of financial failure they are having in other areas, which was my point.

I'm not confused its just your comment was kinda dumb, first Sony keep there home consoles in production for around 8-10 years, second it makes no sense to cease production in your words "sooner than expected" for the PS4 when its one of the few products making them money its going to be around for 6+ years whether you like it or not.
