Microsoft has announced the release date of the next generation Xbox.
That's 2 MUCH, expected 450$ maxx,meh...
Hmm, That conference was better than I expected. I still don't like the DRM shizz, but the lineup looks good.
agreed great conference. 50 more than i thought it would cost but i am onboard day one... my girlfriend is going to go berserk when i buy both consoles before christmas.. and titanfall looks a fooking beast
Mmmm $499 console. Your move, Sony, your move. Please don't repeat PS3 launch.
Yea i agree. Not going to purchase one but the conference was pretty good. A lot of games were shown which was a relieve. Ryse was the IP that got my most interest from the whole conference.
Thanks MS, now Sony can swoop in a lower price and kill the bone.
$499! RIP Xbox.
No company should follow the PS3's launch price models. Lol Bad decision Microsoft.
If there were enough games then I wouldn't mind paying $499. However Titanfall was the only game that looked impressive gameplay wise. Their best looking exclusive was Ryse which didn't play well. Other then that there were lots of "real time" trailers.
Yea better conference than the first, but that doesn't mean it's a great conference, no great games was shown that makes you buy a console for $499 , the most game that i liked is Ryse as an Xbox exclusive. But the best game shown was MGS, Man that was awesome.
Even if the PS4 is as cheap as $399, I can't buy both consoles now. I will have to take into account the money I need to spend on games as well. I have to go with the console with free online.
looks like people only base their buy on the price. DRM is a deal breaker, no matter if they showed Versus XIII exclusive day one release. Sony, your turn! Naughty Dog, Square Enix on stage!
>"agreed" >"great conference" What?
Project Spark was another game that looked Amazing....OOO the possibilites 499 is a bit higher than i wanted to pay but i planned on waiting a while to see how this DRM works out
they redesigned the ""already good looking" 360 into the XBone design! talk about dumb decision LOL!
Too high, for that price you could build a good gaming PC.
This is nearly the exact same price Sony asked for PS3 when it launched. If they couldn't get away with it what makes MS think they can?
Project Spark and Black Tusk game only games that caught my attention. Project spark is on Windows 8 so no loss there :D Otherwise I am glad I only need to buy the PS4 and I now got money leftover for a new gpu for my pc.
You have to remember that doesn't include taxes! My take on the price...hahhahahhahahhahahhahh aahahahahahahhahahahahahaaaaaa a aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa a aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa
Good conference but thats how they get you You go "Wow this looked amazing, I'm going to get an Xbox One....I don't mind the DRM and giving away my rights if this is what I'm getting" Then once it's out and most of the games are....next E3 will be crap
Dam 499usd is too high, werent consoles supposed to be cheap. I could easily build a PC with that money with much better specs and have BC with last 25 years.
The ball is now in Sony's court. I'd have to admit that the press conference was better than I expected it to be. For $499 however, it's too expensive for me. I'll see what happens in the future. Only thing that remains is to see what Sony will do. They already have several advantages, one of them being that they haven't even shown the console yet!
Yea they showed some games I actually want to play... * A Good amount of Open world games too, which are always welcome. * That Spark game looked good and the other Open world game. They almost all looked good but I'm still not 100% sold on Xbox. They did help themselves but we still have more E3 so my opinion is still open.
Hell yeah, I'm in....micro showed me exactly what I wanted to see= CORE GAMES. F-ing day One!
If sony was going to to launch at $400...they could bump it up to $450 before their live conference and nobody would know the difference and they would still have a console $50 cheaper/less expensive than XB1.
I was shocked when they announced $499 MSRP and the crowd gave an underwhelming response. Already the general census on the net are mostly saying that's too much. I didn't see anything that really impressed me graphically. Nor did I see anything that made me say, "ah the hell with it, I'm a gamer, yeah they are sticking it to me but I just gotta have this new console." Although TitanFall looked like it will fun. Not graphically impressive but definitely looks like there is fun to be had with some mechs. The announcement I was most anticipating was will they FINALLY revive Killer Instinct. YES they are BUT it looks like Street Fighter IV (cell shading and could be done on current hardware) and has the same engine KI did on the N64 (not fluid 60fps frame rates but the old school engine). Very disappointing.
More expensive in the UK than the PS3 was at launch! Haha.
So we'll get the superior hardware with the PS4 at a cheaper price. MS is doomed to fail miserable if Sony under cuts.
PS3 was £425 at launch, this is MORE expensive and a lot worse in many many ways. They showed some great games, as I expected, but they didn't even mention the DRM issues and had the gall to say "We Listened" when they announced Killer Instinct. The best thing at this event was TitanFall (I would bet this is a timed exclusive, if I was a betting man), but that is nowhere near enough for me to buy this console at such a high price. MORE EXPENSIVE THAN A PS3 AT LAUNCH. Microsoft really must be smoking something.
Timed exclusives out the ass and overpriced console. Good going, Microsoft.
£430 = $670, what are Microsoft thinking?!We're used to getting ripped off in the UK, but this is just ridiculous when the US and Europe are paying $499/€499.
Great games shown, but you can't polish a turd. I refuse to buy a $499 box that doesn't even let me own my games.
I think it's a good price. I don't like it when it's too affordable for everybody because then it loses that new and fad appeal. Right now no one gets excited about PS3 and 360 because everyone has one already. PS3 and 360 are obsolete. It's just the nature the beast. Stop complaining about the price you poor children.
I agree the lineup looks very good. I am concerned about the overabundance of FPS though... Now lets see how the PS4 compares for better or worse.
