with how dodgy and unreliable gaming press is, can't blame Microsoft for canceling meetings with them. They need to get off their high horse and remember games, developers and gamers are far more important to the industry than the sneaky press.

I will personally be getting an XBOX ONE for Quantum Break and anything RARE ends up doing.

I probably won't get a PS4 until much, much later. Last gen sony proved they can't be trusted. You never know what features will be stolen away with a firmware update so I would rather get a cheaper redesign that doesn't include the features they plan to steal so I don't have to pay for them just to be stolen like they did with the PS3..

Soooo it sounds like Respawn's new game is going to be exclusive to the Xbox One. If true, that's going to be huge. As unimpressed with the reveal event as I was, I'm pretty sure I'll still be getting one of these eventually. Exlcusive Mirror's Edge and exclusive on the new game from the creators of Modern Warfare and Modern Warfare 2.

Titanfall, which is Respawns's new game, seems to be confirmed for PC as well.

I'll wait and see, but if anything it'll drive me to focus on getting a good PC rather than an Xbox One.

"Because every Xbox One owner has a broadband connection, developers can create massive, persistent worlds that evolve even when you’re not playing."

"With Xbox One you can game offline for up to 24 hours on your primary console, or one hour if you are logged on to a separate console accessing your library. Offline gaming is not possible after these prescribed times until you re-establish a connection, but you can still watch live TV and enjoy Blu-ray and DVD movies."

I'm seeing alot of people being okay with this. If i'm being completely candid I could get behind nearly everything expect the 24 hour check and I have two good multiple ways to connect to the internet at home.

Are gaming companies just in a contest for "World's Worst PR?"

Bioshock is 10 years old. Let's play through its horrific environment and see why its so beloved!

People can be judge how this is going over on official Xbox One forum for starters.

One big problem I have with a required online connection is that it will be a dead console once the servers go down.

Except it won't

That's actually pretty awesome news from a devs point of view. If the machine requires an Internet connection, then that's yet another resource you can use in your game.

Last gen you couldn't count on every Xbox having a hard drive so making a game that required one would negatively impact your potential sales. Now that a hard drive is always included and that an internet connection is required, you can assume your users have both, which means you can use both in your game.

But if Xbox one fails in any serious sales related way, none of that matters.

I'm pretty sure Microsoft could just turn off the requirement through a patch once the system goes through its paces (I wouldn't expect that for at least a decade). Plus, I'm sure Xbox Live will be around waaaaaay after the system is gone, so long as Microsoft is still around. Even if XBone is a massive failure, it wouldn't take much to keep the servers up, since they're already there for XBLive anyway.

I don't see the problem in an always-on internet connection. I already do that with all of my other devices in my home. Yeah, the system could fail, but hey, that'd be a problem without the whole required-online thing.

When it comes to the Kinect requirement, it just has to be plugged in. That's it. It does not have to be on. If the user wishes, they don't have to use it for anything at all. If your dog knocks it over and breaks it, or something like that, then you just have to plug it in. That's it. So once again, I don't see the problem.
