Microsoft Found Folks Who Are Actually Looking Forward To The Xbone

Microsoft’s booth at E3 has a screen showcasing what people are saying about the Xbone on Twitter…and it’s all weirdly positive. Here are a few of the tweets. It’s definitely misrepresentation, the bulk of the talk around the Xbox One is kind of negative, no?

My ex's 13 year old brother wants one. He has no clue on any DRM stuff he saw halo and was like woooooow I want it.

Also I know a lot of people who are away to have brain surgery who want one

Also I asked down at the mental health clinic and theres a fair few who want one.

Most normal people I ask though still seem to want the ps4

Moonman1527d ago

Inform him of the DRM. Everyone must know before going to the forbidden Xbone Zone (haha).

Wikkid6661527d ago

DRM doesn't really effect most people... so why should it be an issue?

4Sh0w1527d ago

Wow, you mean they are advertising with positive feedback?

NatureOfLogic1527d ago

I'm not surprise that a few still want Xbox one. I mean after all, these are the same people that swore that PS4 would also have DRM and block used games just because It made the Xbox one look bad. I've seen so much denial that I'm no longer shocked at the minority Xbox one supporters

@Wikkid666

I expect drm to affect kids more than anyone since they are more likely to lend and borrow games as well as buy and sell games.

Wikkid6661527d ago

@kneon

X1 games can be borrowed by friends. Lending is done via the cloud. Anyone on your friends list can borrow your games. In my eyes it's kind of cool.

X1 games can be sold too

The biggest limitation of the X1 is requiring an internet connection.

gaffyh1527d ago

@wikkid666 - DRM affects every gamer, because internet is required, and internet fails ALL THE TIME.

1. Xbone does NOT allow you to lend games to people at launch, and who knows how long it will take for them to implement ANY kind of game lending. It definitely won't be as simple as it is on current gen or Wii U/PS4, simply because it could be abused in the eyes of MS.

2. Xbone games cannot be sold, ONLY traded in to "selected" retailers. Meaning used games will be MORE expensive on Xbone, and trade in credit is likely to be a LOT less due to lack of competition.

kneon1527d ago

@Wikkid666

Every time you lend via the cloud you end up having to download 10's of GB for each game. Parents are going to get really pissed when little johnny is causing overage charges every month. Plus there are restrictions on who you can lend to. Even giving away a game is a pain.

And the selling of games and buying of used games is highly restricted and inconvenient on the Xbox One.

It really sickens me what Microsoft have done, I have been a hardcore Halo fan since Combat evolved; I have played all the games, read the books, read the comics and am addicted to the universe and story.

I just can't do it next generation, Microsoft has gigantically failed. It really upsets me as a Halo fan, but I'm not spending a single piece of money on that piece of shit console which has too many cons that outweigh the benefit.

For my Halo problem, I thought that I would rather watch a play through of the new games on YouTube; that way I am up to date on the story and don't have to spend anything on Microsoft's abomination.

etownone1527d ago

I'm in the same boat as you....

I just can't see myself not playing next gen Halo though.

ricochetmg1527d ago

Play Destiny looking a lot like halo. 2.0

Testfire1527d ago (Edited 1527d ago )

I know I knock the Xbone, by even calling it that, but MS really screwed themselves with all the restrictions they imposed. The truth is if it wasn't for the restrictions in place the Xbox One would actually be an appealing device. At E3 they brought some good games and announcement for future games. But until MS repeals all restrictions on Xbone they will lose customers.

ehandlr1527d ago

DRM affects everyone...especially the average consumer who follows the rules.

Death1527d ago

DRM has the potential to recoup millions of dollars lost to piracy and used game sales for the publishers allowing them to have the resources needed to develop games that really use the potential the new consoles have.

Developers and publishers need to get paid or gaming as we know it will cease to exist. AAA titles are extremely expensive to produce. Without a valid business model that insures profitability, what incentive does anyone have to make games? Your "rights" are irrelevant if product does not exist for you to enjoy.

tuglu_pati1527d ago (Edited 1527d ago )

@Death

I dont know why you waste your time trying to explain it to them, it doesn't matter if MS remove the DMR they will always find something negative. That's the way N4G works.

SexyGamerDude1527d ago

Death, still shilling for MS I see.

C-Thunder1527d ago

@tuglu open your eyes, this is not a N4G thing. It's everywhere.

I guess if you scrape hard enough you will find a few supporters but this really says it all;

Those mental health clinics are getting PS4's. Also, now I get the 'my ex'. No wonder....

ZombieGamerMan1527d ago

@Wikkid666 Dude you are misinforming people, you aren't really borrowing your friends the game all it lets them do is play it for an hour so and only select retailers will sell used Xbox One games but if your friends want to buy it from you or whatever than they have to pay a fee.

Stop supporting MS's blatant greed, DRM and Xbox One are not good for the industry and if guys like you support it you will KILL the gaming industry with this. Console gaming will be dead.

Wikkid6661527d ago (Edited 1527d ago )

Misinformation?

If you borrow a game it checks in every hour... doesn't limit you to an hour.

There is no fee ever associated with selling used games.

How is any of this DRM stuff have to do with MS being greedy? Help publishers protect their IPs and allows full installs on the hdd.

Brain surgery shouldn't be used as a joke

People, just because you like the ps4 better, doesnt mean you are smarter or better.

Grow up, and learn to deal with the fact that people can have different preferences and opinions.

MysticStrummer1527d ago (Edited 1527d ago )

You're arguing against human nature. Humans love to divide into groups and fight about who is better in some way. It's got nothing to do with growing up. We just haven't evolved beyond that impulse yet. Not sure we ever will.

Alos881527d ago

That sounds like half accuracy, half copout. Besides, we'll never get anywhere with anything if we take the attitude that it's impossible.

Axonometri1527d ago

I just want both and a wii u for kids.

MysticStrummer1527d ago (Edited 1527d ago )

@Alos - I didn't say it was impossible, just common. People rise above human nature all the time, but just look at the planet to see what I'm talking about. We still divide ourselves up into tribes and fight with the other tribes over resources.

Whether it's race, religion, politics, or in this case consoles, people have a tendency to divide themselves up and try to feel better than the other guy.

finally someone who gets it! i thoought i was alone on this site lol. the drm doesnt bother me any, niether does the always on or internet connection.

could care less about used games
could care less about lending games to friends ( more often than not they have never returned or ruined them anyway, now i wont feel bad when i need to say no )
could care less about check in since they have a failsafe with the phone
could care less if they spy on me, thats their loss
could care less about the $100 difference esp if i want the same features on ps4 id need the eye making it a $30-40 dollar difference anyway
could care less about always online, my xbox hasnt been online for about 4 days total in 10+ years

love discless gaming
love all the cloud gaming benefits
love using voice and hand to navigate menus esp when viewing media
love the xbox controller still
much prefer the games i seen on X1 to PS4's line up

some people jsut dont understand that the changes dont piss off everyone and some peoples opinions/taste in games differs. Forza, titan fall, dead rising 3. ryse, BF4, COD, Halo 5, Sunset overdrive.....i liked all those more than anything i seen on ps4

platypusrme1527d ago

This isn't about better or worse, this is about right and wrong. Most people are of the opinion that Microsoft did something inherently devious with their 24 hr online check and DRM on discs. If you think that they did something right by implementing this then I can only worry that other people agree with you. All of the sports games will also be on PS4, and everybody recognizes this. The only audience that M$ is targeting is uninformed consumers that want a $500 hdmi input to rid themselves of the need to change their input using a remote.

Captain Qwark 91527d ago (Edited 1527d ago )

i disagree. its less about restricting and more about being necessary to implement the features they wanted too.

for example, playing your entire library from the cloud and discless gaming. the only way to do those things is all digital. if they dont do drm then it would be impossible to do those things because it would be so easy to pirate anything.

examples:

1. im playing a game, i decide i want to play another game. instead of getting up, getting the next game, switching disc, then sitting back down to play again, now i can just switch to the next game.

2. im at a buddies house, suddenly we decide we want to play one of my games, this is spontaneous so no i wouldnt be able to just bring the disc, no biggie, just sign in and play.

both of those things are impossible without drm because without it, me and my buddies would just split the cost of one game and install it on all our xbox's and now we all have it. ill take being able to do both of those things over drm anyday. like i said, my 360 was always online, this wont be any different. i wont even notice the drm unless my net goes out which at that point, my phone checks in for me, no biggie.

my only fear remains, what if ms abandons X1 for business or the next box or servers go down for a long time ( which has never happened yet but you never know ). the last one would just suck but i think is unlikely, the first two, that would be lame but i have a good feeling there is some sort of failsafe in the system for that exact reason. time will tell

Drekken1527d ago

I have to disagree too. I don't know if I am better... but I am way smarter.

Well I want one, I really don't get what all the fuss is about. DRM is pointed in every single news story on N4G its totally nuts.
