Xbox One is the Future

PixlBit | "It’s safe to say that Sony delivered an impressive showing at their E3 press conference and gained a ton of good will with gamers looking to upgrade to next generation consoles. While it’s far too early to declare the PS4 the winner of the next console war (the systems are five months away, after all), many people in the gaming community have latched on to the system since it still offers gamers the freedom to trade, sell, and buy used games. It would be foolish to count Microsoft out at this point, however, and even if many elements of the Xbox One are less than attractive, people should understand that it’s a glimpse into the future."

The story is too old to be commented.

The future where we customers have no rights at all. Oh no,no,no,NO. X1 is not the future. The future is PS4. We have a right to sell,lend,borrow,give,share things that we brought with our hard earned money and Microsoft is desparately trying to take those rights away from us.

Army_of_Darkness1140d ago

The future of failed consoles that is... I would seriously LMFAO if the wiiU ends up out selling the xbone!

Reverent1140d ago

@Army, I won't be surprised. When the WiiU's big titles finally start to release, I'm sure it'll pick up the pace. Enough to exceed Microsoft anyways.

Mounce1140d ago

Microsoft also said HD-DVD is the future....

We know where that went.

Kevin ButIer1140d ago

Not my future... I'm just waiting to see Titanfall announced for the PS4 and I'm done

blackbeld1140d ago

It's how you look at it.

In my point of view XBone is doomed to fail.

HammadTheBeast1140d ago

I’ve decided to preform a scientific experiment with regards to Cliffy B’s statements. I simulated the non-existent dude bro idiot by drinking heavily and smashing my head in my head in a car door until I could no longer remember my social security number or the scientific method. Unfortunately, I could still tell the difference between $400 and $500, and read the amazon page that listed CoD ghosts as coming to both 360 and PS3. Therefore I still have no reason to buy an XBone, or if I’m this hypothetical proto-idiot even a PS4.See, the “core” group that microsoft pissed off are the ones who get worked up about the whole console war thing, Billy McDouchehat who only plays x-box for CoD has no such brand loyalty. He just wants CoD and he doesn’t really care how he gets it. Microsoft is still going to get spanked by this unless they can either win back the “core” gamers or lower the price enough for people who don’t really care as much to buy the xbone over the PS4.

ShinMaster1139d ago

The future of gaming?
No.

Entertainment?
Too rough of a transition already. So not yet.

A dystopian future?
Maybe.

mochachino1139d ago

There both black consoles. Whatever, this is starting to sound racial.

Winter47th1139d ago

"Xbox One is the Future" that you would want to avoid like the plague.

BISHOP-BRASIL1139d ago

The picture says it all, the future of MS is hobo master chief.

"people should understand that it’s a glimpse into the future"

Yeah, a dystopian future.

Pintheshadows1140d ago

Ironically, MS probably wants the world to be under their control, a lot like the DUP in Infamous Second Son. So basically, go Delsin.

Divine1140d ago

It may be the future in something else. but Ps4 is the future of gaming

Ser1140d ago

It's telling of a future with less and less customer and consumer rights.

sashimi1140d ago (Edited 1140d ago )

This is the kind of future M$ would want, depicted in

Continuum - Syfy series

Under the corporatocratic and oligarchic dystopia of the North American Union and its "Corporate Congress", life goes on in apparent freedom under a technologically advanced high-surveillance police state.

Divine1140d ago (Edited 1140d ago )

just to add i like digital when it comes to certain things but when it comes gaming. i like to see my collection of games building up . like right now I would never download the last of us on to my system. But see this is where sony is the future. because they give us the "option"

PS4 is the same thing as always, that's what it is. It took Sony 3 consoles too finally realize they should make a console that devs can take advantage of, something MS has done from the start. Once agian MS will push online gaming forward, while Sony is a generation behind.

TKCMuzzer1140d ago (Edited 1140d ago )

Wow, what a ridiculous comment,devs knew how to take advantage of PlayStation hardware before Microsoft new what the game industry was. Plus, please explain how Microsoft are pushing online gaming forward by restricting certain countries from accessing it?
At least you have answered my questions.
Who buys a new Xbox when they keep RROD?
Who is the kind of person that Microsoft is relying on to carry them through the bad decisions?

You my friend.

NegativeCreepWA1140d ago (Edited 1140d ago )

Both the PS2 and the PS3 were known for being hard too develop for.

I've never had a console RROD fortunately, as a matter of fact I went through just as many PS2s and PS3s as I did 360s and original Xboxs.

Do I care if not all countries can use it. No. As far as I'm concerned, that's less people I'll come across talking smack just because I'm American.

Has every console I've owned been hooked up online since 2004, Yes.

The only way I get rid of games is trading them into Gamestop, which I can still do.

A $100 price difference is nothing too me when paid $100 more last gen for a PS3.

So really, all of these so called bad decisions, have no affect on myself.

What I do care about is online gaming, which is something MS has done better from the start.

Btw, I will have both consoles at some point, as always.

SpinalRemains1140d ago (Edited 1140d ago )

HammadTheBeast sure could have saved his head and his poor car door if you were around for his experiment.

Its sad that Billy McDoucher would go through all this trouble just play Call of Duty, Brah!

Now with clowdz!

Hard to develop for?

Well that concept didn't seem to matter in the end since MS consoles finish last place every generation.

Seriously. Why do you continually support the generational last place loser when they keep taking more and more while finishing last and last?

Destrania1139d ago

Just because online is a requirement on Xbone doesn't mean it's getting pushed forward any more than PS4. Gaikai will offer incredible technologies. The only difference is, it's an option on PS4. You can still enjoy your games offline.

Freedomland1139d ago

@NegativeCreepWA

"So really, all of these so called bad decisions, have no affect on myself"

Seriously, calling them bad decisions yourself and still thinks that they are harmless.
Now I know you absorbed too much negativity silently and became NegativeCreep.

I dont get whats going on with ms, i refuse to belive that this cascade of bad ideas are all their own thinking, surely publishers most be at the forefront of the used game policy and putting pressure on console manufacturers....

cheetah1139d ago

You are spot on. MS are willing participants though and thought Activision and EA would demand Sony did the same. Who knows? Maybe they did and Sony told them to jam it.

Eddie201011140d ago (Edited 1140d ago )

DRM (controlling everything about your purchase) and watching your activity so they can advertise and sell information about your likes and dislikes through the use of a camera that is watching you is part of a future I want nothing to do with.

Also that camera (kinect) is being forced to everyone that buys a Xbox One, even if you will never use it, and it can't be turned off, why not? What's going on there?

Oh, they have to convince the consumer it is worth it, O.K. just tell me how it is worth it or how it will be worth it in the future, just say it, is it a secret until enough people that don't care buy one? If that's the case you bet it will something they want to do to take advantage of the consumer and put more money into shareholders pockets.

Microsoft is relying on peoples ignorance and unfortunately a lot of people choose to be ignorant.

wastedcells1140d ago

The future is THE LAST OF US comes out tomorrow!!!!!!! It's a celebration bitches ( Rick James voice) what did the five fingers of Sony say to the face of Microsoft? SLAP.

rainslacker1140d ago

I prefer to live in the present myself.

HarryMasonHerpderp1139d ago

The future is what the consumer makes it.

syanara1139d ago

the digital future is way too far off and I feel the dawn of a true digital console will be maybe the 9th or 10th generation. people still buy audio CDs from the store in amounts reaching $220 million. 8 years o the ipod couldn't stop that. Digital will eventually be the future but not anytime soon.

WolfOfDarkness1139d ago (Edited 1139d ago )

With all respect to my friends and there opinions , The Future is not by making " Quality games only , The ( Graphics Power ) is the most important factor in gaming business , Yes Wii U will have a great Quality games by next year but does that mean it out sell PS4 and xbox one ? nope ... I am a gamer for 25 years and I know what I am talking about , just please watch " The Dark Sorcerer PS4 tech demo " on you tube and tell me what do you think , it's unbelievable demo of what type of graphics PS4 can do ! That is the Future we are waiting for !

I respect all your opinions.

Man ya'll are so close minded. I am so glad the gaming industry doesn't depend on ya'lls imaginations. I can think of 1,000's of cool things this system could do for every negative. Yes the DMR, and used games things suck, but the system can still be capably of awesome gaming concepts and possibility’s, Yes, they will have to prove it, but it's not just magically "over" for them. Ya'll are so hateful on this site.

MysticStrummer1139d ago

It's really not just this site man.

"I can think of 1,000's of cool things this system could do for every negative."

Doubtful.

Donnieboi1139d ago (Edited 1139d ago )

If Xbox is the future, then the future is a dystopia. Luckily, Pope Kaz Hirai and his disciples (Jeck Trenton, Andrew House, 1st party devs like Santa Monica and Naughty Dog) will come to rescue us before it is too late.

They shall maketh a righteous covenant with us all. Gaming shall be restored and peace shall return to the land of HARDCORE gaming.

nosferatuzodd1139d ago

How about that you cannot activate a game outside of a range of IP addresses for that region.

So that means you cannot take your brand new xbox one on a vacation and connect to the internet there...bad news if your going to grandmas house for christmas in a foreign country.. if your outside the zone you cannot play your game!!!!! yes even if you activate in the right region it will block you when away.

PS: where is the physical off button on the xbox one?

you can connect using your phone genius -_-
