I'd like absolutely 0% realism in my video games, thank you very much. I want fantastical, unrestrained worlds.
Clearly a console for frat boys and your average sport-obsessed American..

THIS, plus a small dose of horror...aka > Resident Evil(If it gets a Reboot and goes back to it's roots.) and Silent Hill(If Team Silent gets their sh** together and makes a new one instead of this western horse sh**)

As for the XBOX One, not interested in the slightest. Hell, The controller design is even more unoriginal & underwhelming
that the PS4's. Seriously, what happened to the days where companies made fun, Striking and unique console/controller designs
that completely stood out from the pack? Video games are toys, not ferrari's. Nowadays, Everything is either black or White. good grief.

They are pretty expensive toys so people expect them to look fancy like they would expect a expensive car (like a Ferrari) to look fancy.

Can I just stick up for FIFA? It's a really good game. I love games such as Ico, Katamari Damacy, Okami, Portal and Journey. One of my proudest 'I know good games' moments was pre-ordering Ouendan from Japan, before the hype train got rolling on that one. I love Animal Crossing and played far too many hours of Nintendogs.

I probably play more FIFA than any other game though (mainly because I stick to single player games, so they eventually get completed while FIFA keeps going on all year). It used to be awful. I remember me and my PES loving friends would laugh at how bad it was when playing demo units in stores, but it still sold really, really well. EA didn't need to change anything, but they weren't happy that PES was considered the critics favourite. They made a real effort to make their game the best, and Edge, a magazine that traditionally does not even review sports games, even felt their hard work was worth a big write up and having them on the cover a few years back. Since 2008, it's been a really good game, and they keep on improving it. It consistently gets high scores from pretty reputable reviewers such as Eurogamer for a reason. I can't speak for EA's other sports games as I don't play them, but FIFA is definitely not just the same game every year with a roster update.

Xbox One went ahead with the always online essentially. You have to register every game's unique code in order to play. Isn't this basically the same thing?

I think it's worth noting that Microsoft didn't say all of the 15 games would be retail. Some of them could be smaller download only games.

I finally got around to watching the thing:

  • Not the neatest looking thing out there, but it certainly doesn't look terrible, either.
  • I could really care less for all the TV, Movie, and internet features, but I understand it's there to cater to the mass market, so I certainly don't have a problem with it.
  • Not a big sports guy, so could care less about the EA stuff. Looked pretty, though.
  • Personally not a Forza fan, so sentiments are same as EA segment.
  • That new "Quantum" game (can't remember full name) didn't pique my interest.
  • Never played HALO (although I should eventually get around to it), so the new TV show didn't excite me (same can be said for the NFL deal).
  • I enjoyed the Call of Duty: Ghosts bit, but while I do enjoy the occasional COD, it's nothing I buy a system for.

I'm sure it'll be a fine system that finds enormous success, but for now there doesn't seem to be anything for me.

No because afterward you can play them offline. Always online would mean the system doesn't work without a internet connection. Though I do wonder how the system compensates if I were to register a game offline or if that is even possible?

Which would make it part way always online which could still anger a lot of people.

...Xbox is way better, IMO. They hardly showed anything, which Nintendo and Sony are both doing. There just aren't things to show, or there's too much to show all at once.
Really, I still think Xbox One looks better.
Discs on only one console is how it is for me already anyway, and they only stated games would have to be payed to be installed onto the console, not reading it straight off the disc.
We still don't know enough information...

I think you're misunderstanding this situation, based off the available information. Installing the games is supposedly mandatory before playing it.

And to quote from computerandvideogames.com: "Individual games will be tied to Xbox Live accounts, Microsoft said, meaning that the software giant can detect whether a game has been sold to a retailer and repurchased, or handed from one friend to another. In such instances, the second user must pay a fee."

So, if I want to let a friend play a game I own, they have to pay a fee! If we have two XBOX ONEs in the house and my nephew wants to play one of my games on the living room console, he has to pay a fee! And, unless I'm not understanding this part right, the game, in this case, will uninstall from my machine!

Well... Guess who's not getting my money :P

@RR529 I believe so.

Hehe, this information changed my reaction to the question of whether I'm getting an XBOX ONE from a "no" to a "hell no!" :p

Seriously, this is big brother, creepy totalitarian stuff.

I'll def. be getting a Wii U. I might get a PS4. I certainly won't get this, though.

At least it doesn't require a constant internet connection...

Wow... Fine then. I don't even know what totalitarian means(I'll google it in a minute, I suppose), and this is the first time I've been called a creep, soooo, ya, I'm leaving this thread. Bye, have fun with PS4.

Here's how the system works: when you buy an Xbox One game, you'll get a unique code that you enter when you install that game. You'll have to connect to the Internet in order to authorize that code, and the code can only be used once. Once you use it, that game will then be linked to your Xbox Live account. "It sits on your harddrive and you have permission to play that game as long as you’d like," Harrison said.

....

But what if you want to bring a game disc to a friend's house and play there? You'll have to pay a fee—and not just some sort of activation fee, but the actual price of that game—in order to use a game's code on a friend's account. Think of it like a new game, Harrison says.

Easy and Microsoft seems to want to kill the XBLA brand so all games have equal footing. The Xbox Live marketplace is now been renamed the Microsoft Store.

Also looks like 5GB for Games and 3GB for OS functions.

Also Remedy is waying were going to hear more about Quantum break later this week. also partial specs

I'm sorry, this sucks...

The Xbox One doesn't have to be online all the time, but it does have to be online. Not just once in a while—once a day, according to Microsoft vice president Phil Harrison.

Kotaku: If I’m playing a single player game, do I have to be online at least once per hour or something like that? Or can I go weeks and weeks?

Harrison: I believe it’s 24 hours.

Kotaku: I’d have to connect online once every day.

Harrison: Correct.

I will say that this is probably the easiest thing that they could change. If there's enough negative feedback I wouldn't be surprised to see it changed well before the system releases.

Yeah I can't defend that at all. As someone who has his console always online anyway it doesn't matter but I pray this better be miscommunication on Harrison's part.

It's called Xbox One or a reason AKA Xbox On, but i bet Xbox fans don't care and still buy it. Say what you want about Sony but they don't pull this crap, and have there Hardcore gamers in mind unlike Microsoft.

of course its pointless but its a relative easy fix for those who game at other folks house. My problem is that even if i own the game I can't play it. I scammed Microsoft China out of a free downloadable copy of AC3. I jplay it on my main account even though the game itself is tied to a chinese account. With the XO I wouldn't be able to play on my main account without playing, though in hindsight I guess i'm part of the problem.

Apparently every XO game must support smartglalss meaning devs can't use the Gamepad being different as a BS excuse any more.
