the xbox one actually had some cool exclusives , its a solid product but the DRM and used/sharing restrictions kills it ! just remove these features and its all good !

No it's still not all good. Even if they dumped the drm, anti-used games, etc. I still wouldn't trust them. I'll never trust a company that would even attempt to commit the evil things M$ tries to do with xbone.

The money we give them today, is they same money they'll use to implement DRM, anti-used games, and paying of 3rd parties for frivolous dlc exclusives (instead of spending it making 1st party exclusives) in a FUTURE xbox.

Don't be fooled by the exclusives on xbone. Many of which were payed-off last second by M$ to be exclusive. At the end of the day, their lack of major HOMEGROWN 1st party HARDCORE games (not stuff like "project spark", which looked staged and pre-rendered). Combine that with their emphasis on tv shows, and we see that M$ has no interest in gamers.

So...I take it you're not buying an Xbox One?

Mikelarry2009d ago

apparently not. they say they expected the backlash and will not change their stance and if you don't have online well we have product for you its called a 360. the arrogance it that comment alone

This is so bogus, I spent 6 years as an active duty soldier, I had high speed internet 5 of those years. It does rule them out when their deployed or overseas, and this does completely and totally suck. When I was in Egypt for a year, that's when I got back into gaming....I had nothing better to do than to play my Xbox.

Still, the quote is false.

death do you mean my quote? because i got video proof

It is not false the xbox one is region locked and won't work in most countries anyway even if you had a 1 gigabit internet connection.

tiffac0082009d ago (Edited 2009d ago )

Sorry bro, as it stands we will be unable to play the Xbox One outside of the specified 21 countries, even if you have the correct regioned games for it. This maybe because of the internet activation for the games and the 24 hr check in. Its not going to be like the 360.

I expect MS to clarify this guideline in the future.

Just get a ps4. The new xbox isnt even backwards compatable so theres no reason to get all hung-up on a particular name brand. The xbox has very little in common with the 360.

Maybe, but if you just throw it straight into reverse while going full speed the other way you blow your gearbox

They need a Delorean to go back and start again.
