Which is why I said earlier that if someone was looking to save money they'd go for the 360/PS3, while the high end consumer will skip the Wii U for the One/PS4.

If sony screws as badly as Microsoft did i'll get a one, but if they don't than PS4 will probably be my next console.

WAT!

I thought the press conference was awesome. There is no doubt that Xbone will have plenty of games, just like the 360. The exclusives do seem pretty skewed toward shooters/mature action games, but that is the pedigree of the Xbox and not necessarily a bad thing.

But, in the end, I still can't make myself put money up for this thing. The price tag doesn't actually phase me - I expected it to be that high. I just can't support the online check-in, Kinect, and used/loaning games system Microsoft is pushing here. It's a disturbing trend for console gaming and I just can't bring myself to support it. I know the absence of my $500 is not going to turn the tide, but having an honest passion for console gaming keeps me from getting into the Xbone.

I really enjoyed the conference. I found the reveal underwhelming, but they had been pretty clear that was the console reveal and the games were coming at E3. Fair play to them, they made good on that promise. I won't be getting one at launch, probably not even a year later. I think the PS4 will be my 'main' console this time, but I will be getting an Xbox One eventually because there's already a handful of exclusives that interest me.

Hmm... I'm disappointed. Not because the showing was bad, it's just that I'm gonna be sad missing out on some of these games. Sunset Overdrive is interesting.

Oh well. I'll save up for a good PC, see about a PS4, and have the last laugh.

This conference basically ripped the soul out of my chest and stomped on it with the power of the stay puff marshmallow man. I'll admit, i skimmed through quite a bit of it but most of what i saw makes me hate the current state of the gaming industry, at least in terms of western developers. Glorified flashy & cinematic interactive movies where gameplay ultimately takes the back seet in favor of realistic visuals & story accompinied by some macho man narrorator with a 'going through tough times/end of the world" tone to his voice. Make way for unevolved twin stick controlled PS2 experiences drizzled in NextGen + 1080p visuals...

It just isn't enough anymore, plus these exact type of games which were released on the PS2, XBOX and even gamecube didn't do it for me back then either. Different strokes, but it's getting stale, at least for me. But i'm on my 12th console now, it had to happen sometime. Me needs me innovation/gimmicks and original ideas to catch me interest, for the most part these days. :p

The only game during the MS E3 conference that i'd be interested in checking out is the new Killer Instinct.

i'm not willing to give up my rights as a consumer. DRM just kills it for me. it means that when i go to gamestop and buy a game, i'm NOT buying a game; i'm buying a license to PLAY the game. and that is just bullsh*t. no exclusive for X1 is worth my rights as a consumer. i should have the right to sell a game if i don't like it. i shouldn't be forced to keep it forever.

also, X1 is $500 dollars. want a game to go with it? they're $60. want Gold membership? $60. want a spare controller? $50. want a controller adapter? $50. all of that's $720+. might as well build a PC.

Sounds like a pretty solid conference. I haven't seen it yet, but hopefully it'll be posted on the 360 dashboard (like the reveal was), or it's posted on YouTube.

Not a single game was interesting to me that was exclusive. Not one. Obviously Metal Gear Solid 5 and SW: Battlefront were interesting as hell, but we know those are also coming to the PS4.

I disagree but then I remember you're deciding to not get Xbox One so cool.

You're free to disagree. It's more that there's too many shooters, zombies, and Rare's crap for my tastes. Even the indie game they showed off looked abysmal in my eyes. It's just a dungeon crawler with the camera zoomed out too far to see anything...

I take it you're not a fan of most, as in 95% of Western videogames? Welcome to my world. :p

I haven't saw all of it yet (had to stop at the 1:05 mark), but I'll give my impressions thus far.

Metal Gear Solid V: the Phantom Pain - It's MGS, 'nuff said (+1)

World Of Tanks - It's a tank game, and that's awesome (+1)

Max & the Curse of Brotherhood - It's probably only an arcade game, but big kudos to MS for showcasing a colorful platformer (+1)

Dark Souls 2 - It doesn't look like my type of fantasy game, but it looks decent enough (+-0)

Ryse: Son of Rome - similar sentiments to the above (+-0)

Killer Instinct - A 2D arcade style fighter, with a bright pallet, and no blood. Good job MS (+1)

Sunset Overdrive - What appears to be a cartoony shooter, with bright visuals, and orange blood. Man, MS is on a roll tonight. (+1)

Forza 5 - I'm not a fan of realistic racers, but it looks nice (+-0)

Quantum Break - Yawn, doesn't look very compelling to me (-1)

D4 - Don't know much about this yet, but it's cel shaded, and that's enough to give it a passing grade, IMO. (+1)

Project Spark - This actually looks really cool! And with the vibrant, cartoony look, another victory for the conference. (+1)

Minecraft - It's nothing new, but it's a wildly popular game that's colorful, and made out of blocks, so it's a go. (+1)

Crimson Dragon - Up there with MGSV as the best game on offer, IMO. (+1)

The Witcher 3 - same as Ryse & Dark Souls 2. (+-0)

Dead Rising 3 - gone is the absurdity that the series is supposed to have, and now it's yet another generic looking zombie game (-1)

So far pretty good, and with Max & the Curse of Brotherhood, Killer Instinct, D4, Crimson Dragon, Sunset Overdrive, Project Spark and Minecraft on display, it looks like MS has finally realized a bunch of boring, realistic looking games has been the wrong direction to go with in gaming. Sure, there was nothing I was jumping up and down excited for, but hopefully it's a sign of where the gaming industry is heading.

I can't get past the anti-consumer policies online requirements or DRM. They could've shown the most amazing games (as it happens, they didn't) and it wouldn't have made a blind bit of difference. The price was just the icing on the cake, frankly.

I didn't jump up and down for any of the XBOX exclusives. Killer Instinct looks like it was straight from 2000... garbage. Panzar Dragon and Forza looked good, everything is not worth selling out for DRM.

The only exclusive that interested me was Plants VS Zombies. So I'm definitely not getting a $500 robot stalker just for one game.
